Cinematic Hell

Not all movies are created equal. Welcome to Cinematic Hell.

During 2010 I'm working through the greatest movies of all time, two hundred and fifty of them. Each week of the year I'll be posting reviews of five movies from the IMDb Top 250 List, but that creates something of an imbalance on a blog where I review the good, the bad and the ugly.

If the IMDb Top 250 movies are the good and there's plenty on here already to count as the bad, that leaves the ugly. That's what this page is for.

Each week I'll also be writing a review of one of the worst movies of all time for the awesome folks at Cinema Head Cheese and then indexing them here too as premiere examples of Cinematic Hell. I'm grateful to Kevin, Jeff and David for the privilege. Please check out their site and the many, many other wonderful things they do. Go buy a copy of Blown for starters.

Here are my reviews, along with ratings from my wife and I and links to each film's page at IMDb. Read these reviews at your peril! You have been warned!

Rating System
1 - Abysmal | 2 - Bad | 3 - Poor | 4 - OK | 5 - Good | 6 - Excellent | 7 - Classic
