Fast Food Nation

Bad marketing kept this movie from making it big. And the title is a little wrong, because the film is about MORE than just how we eat... but this is a MUST see.

Add it to the list.

It's almost a documentary.

Liar Liar

Fletcher Reede is a particularly career-focused lawyer and divorced father. He has a habit of giving precedence to his job and breaking promises to be with his young son Max, and then lying to Max and his ex-wife Audrey about the real reason he missed the date. Fletcher lets Max down once too often, missing his birthday party, and has to deal with the consequences when Max makes a wish while blowing out the candles on the cake and it comes true. The wish is that Fletcher cannot tell a lie for 24 hours.Actually, an under-rated Jim Carrey film. Watching someone tell the truth for an hour is pretty damn funny.
Not really award winning material, but still great background noise.

Deathrace 2000

Oh god. Oh god. Awful. Just awful.

I rented this, not knowing it was the same team that made Cannonball.

But. Oh god. Oh god.

So awful.

Five of the same actors. Its the same cheesy schtick where everything is filmed in Los Angeles to look like the entire U.S. The dialog is bad. The story is bad. Only two people in the movie can act (and one of them is Stallone).

Whoever the director/producer is (I don't care enough to find out), he needs help.

Serious help.

Issues.

For the record, I'm doing research on this genre of film, and I'd never seen these two before.

I had no idea how bad they were.

God Awful.
