    Ash, that transmission... Mother's deciphered part of it. It doesn't look like an S.O.S.
    -Ripley

    When you get right down to it, Alien is a "B Movie" made with "Triple A Movie" sensibilities. The story in one broad stroke is a crew of people on a ship getting killed off one at a time by a creature. A story doesn't get more "B Movie" then that. I think the problem ended up being that every single person involved with the…

    They're coming for you, Barbara!

    The birth of the modern zombie. It's often that Night of the Living Dead is simply mentioned as the first modern zombie film and almost all the praise goes to Dawn of the Dead as the greatest zombie film ever made. Night deserves much more praise then that.

    The rules of the modern zombie is engraved in pop culture. My 9 year old stepdaughter knows what a zombie is and she's never witnessed a…

    At my signal, unleash hell.
    -Maximus

    Now I enjoy all of that, but also the story and performances.  For example, Joaquin Phoenix perfectly captures pathetic while coming off as dangerous.

    Also, this movie was used as an example of epic hack…

    Little by little the look of the country changes because of the men we admire. You're just going to have to make up your own mind one day about what's right and wrong.
    -Home Bannon

    Plenty of movies try to pull of the asshole character that everyone still gravitates to. Women want to be with him and guys want to drink with him. The result is usually a character that you can’t figure out why anyone in their right mind…

    Roar!
    -Shark

    Instead of doing a review I will just point out the crap that inhabits this film.

    - The shark roars like a lion.
    - Mario Van Peebles does a Jamaican accent
    - The shark swims from New York to the Bahamas in less then 3 days.
    - This is the sequel that popularized the tagline "This time it's personal!"
    - African Americans feet apparently look Caucasian under water
    - The god damn shark is hunting one family, even…
