After reviewing 3 of the funniest movies ever made, I thought I would review a movie about ancient history. Yeah, I wish; Things may be better, but the racism is alive and well in this country. Mississippi Burning is about as far from humor as you get, especially for people of color who had the […]

Cast

Graham Chapman
John Cleese
Terry Gilliam
Eric Idle
Terry Jones
Michael Palin
Terence Bayler
Carol Cleveland

The Life Of Brian came out a few years after the Holy Grail masterpiece, and to no great surprise, it was not well received by viewers or critics. Many, especially the religiously impaired, could not look past the blistering blasphemy and recognize what a wonderful work of craft this film was. The obvious satire of […]

Terry Gilliam
Terry Jones
Michael Palin
Carol Cleveland

O.K., what in the heck is going on here? Since the prospect of seeing a new movie at the theater now seems hopeless, I’m on a mission to seek the Holy Grail of all movies. Besides, I’d rather re-watch a favorite movie a dozen times, than watch a new stink-bomb like 365 Days. Now, Airplane! […]

Director

Jim Abrahans David Zucker

Cast

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Lloyd Bridges
Peter Graves
Robert Hays
Leslie Nielsen
Lorna Patterson
Robert Stack
Barbara Billingsley

Airplane! is surely (don’t call me that!) one of the greatest works of movie comedy ever made. From the beginning announcement of the “Red Zone and White Zone” overhead proclamations to the ending disembarkation off of the traumatized plane, every scene and every line is hilarious. “Give me Ham on 5 and hold the Mayo” […]

The Top 10 Movie Drunks

Here at Ruthless, we take substance abuse seriously. That, of course, does not keep us from enjoying movies, and their characters who happen to be 24 carat alcoholics. This list contains the greatest booze-hounds in the history of cinema, and the great movies in which they showcased their various drinking and acting talents. Of course, […]

I am proud to announce that Ruthless Reviews will be immediately filling a big hole in its massive 3100+ movie review site, and this has been a long time coming. Devon, Ezra and myself will be reviewing one of the greatest franchises in camp horror movie history, the 3 Evil Dead movies by Sam Raimi. […]

The Flight Of The Phoenix (1965)

Director

Robert Aldrich

Cast

James Stewart
Richard Attenborough
Peter Finch
Hardy Kruger
Ernest Borgnine
Christian Marquand
George Kennedy
Ian Bannen
Ronald Fraser
Gabriel Tinte


James Stewart can be solidly forgiven for films like It’s A Wonderful Life because of efforts like Vertigo and this film, The Flight of the Phoenix. It is not a wonderful life, but it is a wonderful film, with top notch acting and dialogue that you would expect from a classic film. The Flight of […]

365 Days (Netflix)

Cast

Michelle Morrone
Anna Maria Seiklucka
Bronislaw Wroclawski
Otar Saralidze
Magdalena Lamparska
Natasza Urbanska

365 Days is currently the #1 movie streamed on Netflix. The movie poster that you see is the one that got me banned from Facebook. Yeah. Go figure. Anyway, the movie itself is exponentially more provocative than the poster and is just downright out and out porn. I don’t have anything against porn. I often […]

Ewe Boll
Jackie Tohn
Vern Troyer
Brent Mendenhall

Yes, I’m doing it. At the insistence of my good friend Ted Barrus, I am reviewing an Uwe Boll movie. Uwe Boll is a legend for making tasteless movies that are virtually unwatchable. The movie Postal is his finest achievement. The only other movie that I’ve watched that comes close to Postal for sheer vulgarity, […]

Christmas In July -or- It’s Not Even July Yet: I’ll Do Anything To Get My Mind Off Of Covid & Assassination Of Blacks Edition (Even Christmas)

The Christmas Season is again over as a New Year approaches. Yet again, the imaginary and paranoid “War On Christmas” has failed to materialize, just like the last prediction of the Rapture. The Religiously Impaired™ will never learn, will they? Of course, that is not important now. What is important is a reflection on the […]
