One I always think of that when it came out everyone paned it. Critics hated it. Was Death To Smoochy. With Danny deVito and Edward Norton. It’s super dark humour. Totally twisted. It’s fucking great if you’ve never seen it. (If you’re into that kind of thing...)

Death to Smoochy was really good.  I remember Safety not Guaranteed being a bit of a slow starter but I have a huge crush on  Aubrey Plaza so that kept my attention.

Downloaded The Pacifier, I've been reflecting on the movie 12 Monkeys seems to be another relevant film to go along with 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks later and Contagion.

Favorite part of Kill Smoochy was the nazi rally "hail Smoochy" lol

Downloading Idiocracy now looks excellent, could not find anything but screeners of Bloodshot.  Clockwork Orange is a classic!   Anyone that has not seen it should.

Nice. I just got my hands on a clean version as well, so its on the list to watch now. A good way to kill two hours at least outside of all the anime I have been watching lol. Grab "Uncut Gems" if you have not seen it. Solid solid movie.

Enjoyed uncut Gems.  Just finished The Tiger King last night, super interesting and ridiculous, exotic animal owners are crazier than I could ever imagine.

I watched "The Gentleman" in the theater and it is up on my top ten movies of all time, Guy Ritchie is a genius.
