A documentary by Werner Herzog I just finished watching the 9-part series: Alaska:The Last Frontier and it was great. This series showcases the lives of the second and third generation Kilchers, who for decades have been homesteaders on the rugged Alaskan frontier. These people are impressive and quite hard-core as they fish, hunt, drive cattle, […]
Film TitleHappy People: A Year in the Taiga
Subsistence trapping at the most brutal level.
Film TitleHenry:Portrait of a Serial Killer
This killer has absolutely no peer. Viewers, meet Henry. There is no way to watch this film without feeling violated.
First things first, I don?t know how this film has slipped under the Ruthless Review Radar for so long, because this dark and terrifying movie contains one of the most Ruthless characters of all time. Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer was christened to be a very low budget $100,000 horror flick, but the final product […]
Film TitleDallas Buyers Club
Texas cowboy, when faced with a deadly disease, takes matters into his own hands
In keeping with the main character, this movie did not fool around. Before the viewer is hardly into his popcorn, Ron Woodruff is busted in the chops by a cop and then busted even harder by two doctors who drop the news on him that he is HIV+ and only has about 30 days to […]

Film TitleAmerican Hustle
Con man works for FBI and the Mob thinks it’s hilarious
DirectorDavid O. Russell
If opening scenes are trying to grab your attention, this one certainly succeeds as we see a clownishly attired Christian Bale orchestrate a really bad hairdo for something like 5 minutes. Equally as shocking is his physique as the formerly ripped Batman has put on 43 pounds of mostly paunch. The plot of this film […]
Film TitleBlackadder's Christmas Carol
Wickedly hilariously twisted Dickens Classic
I was browsing through my 10th free trial of Netflix, looking for the 1974 version of Black Santa when I stumbled across this unbelievable find. When I looked at the title and the cast, I dropped everything, yes even the morning micturation would have to wait. Being unfamiliar with the BBC series Blackadder, I […]
Film TitleA Christmas Carol
Disney Animation of Dickens Classic Scrooge
I usually don’t care for animation very much,no matter how compelling, but I watched this movie when it first came out and thought it was pretty good. Upon re-watching, Ive changed my mind The movie is not only good, it is mind-blowingly fantastic. This version of the Dickens classic is directed by Robert Zemeckis, the […]
Film TitleHow The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Overdone acting and overdone makeup. A dumbing down, instead of a shake up.
The only character in the movie that was watchable was Max the Dog and this was because he had no lines.
