Transformers 2

So bad. So so so bad. While nothing will ever replace Vanilla Sky as the worst movie of all time, this movie is 2nd place.

Farting robots. Humping robots. Wayans brother robots.

This movie is the equivalent of someone taking a dump in my mouth.

Screed

Postman

I know what people say about this film and I don't care. It's about the end of the world. The opening hour is fantastic. And before Kostner beats the theme to death, rebuilding the government through "communication" lines is a really strong anchor.

Sadly, the last 20 minutes are just asinine.

Normally, I would complain about it, but I'm going to let it go, because it's in my genre.

Quiet Earth

Another fantastic end of the world movie, this one has three actors in it (plus one flashback) and three dead people.

Amazing.

Filmed in the 80s in New Zealand — I'm not sure where they got the budget for it — this is really one of the better end of the world films. I don't even care what caused it, or how they intend to fix it. I just loved watching Bruno Lawrence (from Smash Palace) for the first 40 minutes not having a single person to talk to. And what that leads to.

So. Damn. Good.
