Bowling for Columbine (2002). Anti-gun propaganda won a Best Documentary Oscar for socialist Michael Moore. Infamous interview with Charlton Heston who was tricked into it by Moore. Heston realizes he’s been had and walks off. (Since then, gun sales have soared.) Moore tries to blame the NRA for the school shootout at Columbine High School.
Heaven’s Gate (1980.) The film that bankrupt United Artists. Mangled-up mish-mash of hyroghlyphics – Undecipherable in whichever version you watch (the original is a staggering 219 minutes, the shortened version known as “The Johnson County War” is 149 minutes.) All-star cast includes Kris Kristofferson, Christopher Walken, John Hurt, Sam Waterston, Brad Dourif, Isabelle Huppert, Jeff Bridges and Joseph Cotten (his last film.) Has gained a weird cult following from masochists.
Django Unchained (2012). Ugly, violent, Quentin Tarentino-directed, black slave revolt epic. Really a remake of “The Legend of Nigger Charlie” (1972), except the director didn’t have the guts to admit it. Ruined by a bad script and star Jamie Foxx who gives the worst performance of his career.
The Main Event (1979). Reteaming Ryan O’Neill and “Babs” Streisand from “What’s Up, Doc?” seemed like a good idea. It wasn’t. Unfunny comedy about a perfume expert (Streisand’s nose, get it?) and a has-been athlete played by O’Neill, who are teamed to box. Whatever.
Ghostbusters (2016). (Feminist Version) Sullied the name of the 1984 comedy classic. This new re-boot isn’t funny, the direction is clumsy, the screenplay is no better than an SNL skit and the lesbo-sub-theme isn’t necessary. A waste of time and money. You have to ask yourself why.
Bridesmaids (2011.) The movie that proved women could be every bit as disgusting as men. Farting, puking, dirty jokes, exposing yourself – it’s all here and more. Stars that fat pig slob Melissa McCarthy.
