Movie Reviews and Podcasts.
Home of The Criterion Quest and You Haven't Seen That?! podcasts.

Our friend Toby enjoys movies. He also enjoys drinking. Sometimes he combines the two and these reviews are the results.


For all those lazy f**ks out there who don't want to read a 500 odd word review, check out my quick and clear review of whatever films I've been watching to see how I really feel about them. No holds barred. If I hate it you will know, if I love it you will know, if it's average... it won't get a review.



"Aliens" (1986)

OK, I wouldn't know how to write a review if it came up and bit me on the ass but after watching "Aliens" again recently I have decided it is the ultimate action film ever made, period.

F**k T2 (as amazing as it is), f**k all the other s**t, this is straight up sci-fi action done to perfection. It just doesn't happen anymore. I know a lot of people love "Alien" more than it's sequel due to it's thriller nature but this film just has something about it that makes it amazing.

Whether it be the one liners ("LET'S ROOOOCCCCKKKKKK!", "Game over man, game over!") or the extremely awesome double crossing that happens, I don't know, but when it comes to the "Alien" franchise I will always choose to watch "Aliens" first before anything else

That being said, now it's time to go back and watch "Alien"...




PS. Ripley is way more of a badass than John Connor.
