    Ghosts of Mars (2001)

    I watched it recently. It's hot garbage. Luckily, these entries don't hurt my opinion of Carpenter's career. He has enough good that I'll forgive the huge turds.

    Replicas (2019)

    Might not be too likely with Tommy MiddleD in the film, but this is a bad one. Film Review: ‘Replicas’ Rampant silliness and gaping plot holes test audience patience in Jeffrey Nachmanoff's sci-fi thriller. 'Dead people really don’t like to wake up and find their memories have been stuffed inside something that looks like the mechanical marvel from “Ex Machina.”' https://variety.com/2019/film/reviews/replicas-review-keanu-reeves-1203105370/ ‘Replicas’ Film Review: Keanu Reeves’ Robo-Clone Thriller Flirts With Unintentional Laughs Reeves’ mad doctor tries to bring his family back to life in a ridiculous tale that replaces emotion with shouted technobabble https://www.thewrap.com/replicas-film-review-keanu-reeves/ 'Reeves’ Will Foster is first seen waiting for a donated brain that is being brought to him via helicopter, and director Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“Traitor”) cross-cuts between Reeves anxiously staring at his watch and the brain being rushed into the facility. During an operation to place this brain into a robot body, Dr. Foster is asked, “Do you concur?” by a colleague and Reeves cries, “I concur!” in that ineffably stilted but enthusiastic Keanu-ish way.'

    Ghosts of Mars (2001)

    This has to be Carpenter's worst film, right?
  5. I showed Morpheus my orifice, then he told me to get my nethers out of his Nebuchadnezzar.

    Holmes and Watson (2018)

    This is disappointing. I didn't expect much from Will Ferrell, but John C. Reilly is one of my favorites. Add in Lauren Lapkus (though I have no idea how big her part is), and I thought it would at least be decent. Doesn't sound like that's the case. This movie appears to be one that both critics and laypeople agree on. It's been deemed a steaming turd by both.

    Top Films of 2018

    Agreed. Nothing terribly original, but it was well done. My biggest gripe is how long the movie felt. Just a shade under two hours, but it felt like a long haul.

    Top Films of 2018

    Having two kids under 10 definitely led to some of the movies on this list. Probably wouldn't have seen Bumblebee, Incredibles 2 or Grinch otherwise. I almost didn't add it to my list, but I wanted to get to 10! If I were to throw another on the list, I guess I could add The Christmas Chronicles (again because of kids). It would be ahead of The Grinch, mostly because of Kurt Russell being Kurt Russell.

    Top Films of 2018

    I had to add it to the list because I couldn't think of any other 2018 releases that I had seen! I spent most of the year watching series or older movies (in some cases stuff that I had seen before). It's not terrible, but it's not good either. It adds nothing to the original other than Cindy Loo's mom is a single, working mother. It also has Kenan Thompson doing a pretty good voice. Otherwise, it's largely forgettable.

    They Live (1988)

    Are you out of your fucking mind? This is one of the best films of the 80's. It's pretty absurd, but it's an awesome movie.

    Top Films of 2018

    I admittedly didn't watch many actual new films this year, (I usually watch films that are older and am typically a couple years behind on new fimls) but here's some of the tops from my list. I have kids, which explains a couple entries. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Annihilation Black Panther Avengers: Infinity War Bumblebee Incredibles 2 Halloween Apostle (Netflix) A Futile and Stupid Gesture The Grinch For those who haven't seen them, I highly recommend the first two. The two I want to see most from 2018: Isle of Dogs and Mandy.

    Episode 198.5 - Minisode 198.5

    I had never heard of A Night in Heaven before. This movie sounds ridiculous and should spur some good insight from Jason. But guys, I really want a couple other 80's gems...Ice Pirates (Robert Urich, 1984) and The Island (Michael Caine, 1980).

    Venom (2018)

    I'm a Venom fan. I'm a Tom Hardy fan. I had high hopes. Then I saw Sony was in charge and knew this would be doomed. Also, they should have gone for an R rating like Logan and Deadpool. I've seen this movie called pretty good, a complete disaster, and unintentionally funny. It sounds like madness. The caliber of people involved with this film is astounding...Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Ruben Fleischer (director), Scott Rosenberg (writer). One of my favorite quotes I've seen about the film: "Matt Patches pointed out that Hardy might be the only person in the movie who knows it's a comedy and responds accordingly." Unintentionally hilarious: https://www.thedailybeast.com/tom-hardys-venom-is-an-unintentionally-hilarious-disaster "An absurdly sloppy comic-book extravaganza about a noggin-chomping villain who becomes something of a hero, Venom is like its title character: so unbelievably bad it’s almost good. Almost." "Despite Hardy’s over-the-top tour de force, Venom can’t keep from embarrassing itself at every turn." Tom Hardy performance: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2018/10/venom-movie-review-tom-hardy "His accent is all over the place, and you fear for his physical well-being at times. I suppose that tracks; he’s got an alien entity wriggling around inside him, after all. The character, I mean. Hardy the actor doesn’t have some otherworldly being tugging on his brain. At least, I don’t think so." "For several weird stretches, though, Venom is a bouncy good time. The movie doesn’t seem to care if you’re laughing with it, at it, or whatever." A total mess: https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-reviews/venom-movie-review-tom-hardy-729583/ "In the first scene of Marvel’s utterly unmarvelous Venom, an alien space ship crashes and burns on earth leaving behind a slithering mass of defanged, digitalized slop. That’s also a fair description of this puddle of simplistic, sanitized PG-13 drivel that Marvel has released instead of the scary, dark-night-of-the-soul thunderbolt fans had the right to expect." "What went wrong? Everything, actually. Crudely directed by Ruben Fleischer (remember the bliss of Zombieland?) from an aggressively blockheaded script by Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, this super–antihero tale seems to take a twisted pride in missing the point." Future cult classic? https://www.wired.com/story/venom-movie-review/ "THIS IS A list of things that happen in the new movie Venom: Riz Ahmed, personifying every rich supervillain trope at once, utters the words "God has abandoned us … I will not"; Tom Hardy hops in a restaurant's lobster tank and eats a crustacean raw; the movie's titular character says "on my planet, I was kind of a loser"; and an alien turns into Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams. These are the kinds of moments that turn a movie into a cult favorite, or into a total disaster. Venom could be either—if it had any idea what it was at all."

    Final Score (2018)

    I haven't seen this film, but isn't the basic premise pretty close to JCVD's "Sudden Death"? Just swap hockey and soccer.

    Surfer: Teen Confronts Fear (2018)

    I saw something comparing this to The Room. I don't know if that's a vote for or against this being on the show.
