THE DYSFUNCTIONAL BOOK CLUB

1 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 80 minutes

This movie bills itself as “an intoxicating comedy.” Unfortunately, the tagline was the only indication I had that this was supposed to be funny.

BILL’S BIG PUMPKINS

2 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 87 minutes

You would think a documentary about a pumpkin grower attempting to grow the biggest pumpkin in Minnesota history would be fairly boring. You would be partially right.

A PATRIOT ACT

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 30 minutes

What happens when you get some paranoid, slightly pretentious people making a movie inspired by the Patriot Act? You get a film with an interesting premise that thinks it has more power than it actually does.

LIFE AFTER DIVORCE

4 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 60 minutes

If women really want to know what far too many men are thinking, they need to see this, and if anti-prostitution forces want to get an honest look at things from the other side of the fence, this is, for lack of a better word, important.

WHAT WOULD JESUS BUY? (DVD)

Wal Mart and megashoppers overall see their day of reckoning in this doc on blind consumerism and its devastating effects.

SPLATTER DISCO

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 87 minutes

A serial killer stalking nightclub patrons and employees isn’t exactly ground breaking. If the writer could have come up with something a bit more sinister, I think he would have had a real winner.

NOT SO “AMATEUR”: REGAN REESE EXPOSED

Perhaps Reese will be the first star to, a-hem, straddle both the adult and mainstream film worlds without the standard prejudices that come with that sort of thing.

CRAZED KILLER COOL: THE “APSK” 3 INTERVIEW

“This isn’t an action movie like ‘Die Hard’ where you yell, ‘Yeah, Bruce, shoot those fuckers.’ It’s meant to feel real, like all the bullshit we’re getting bombarded with every day online.�

STORIES FROM THE ROAD: STURGIS 2006 (DVD)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2007

“Stories From the Road: Sturgis 2006″ has everything you’d expect from a documentary/travelogue about the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally… except for bare breasts.

IN THE DARK (DVD)

4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 86 minutes

Watch this film if you ever get the chance. It’s one of those rare things where the actors are equal to the story (and vice versa), and that alone should make it worth your time…

THE FOLK SINGER

5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 101 minutes

It is a meandering film that is far more complex than what most people are used to in a movie, and that alone ensures that not enough people will give it a chance. That is, quite frankly, a shame, as this is probably one of the best films to come out of 2008…
