Erik: I'd rather go see x-rays of a malignant tumor in my own colon than watch Bull Durham again.
Seanbaby: Kevin Costner is Hollywood's most boring actor, and baseball is America's most boring pastime. They must have gotten funding for this movie by pitching it as a sleeping aid for the elderly. I wouldn't have known it was a comedy if the box didn't say so, and I still think it's a typo. They should have known Bull Durham would have been a disaster before Kevin Costner took the first step out of his solid gold built-in-massage trailer. And what madman cast Susan Sarandon as the slut? She's a charming and handsome woman, but she couldn't seduce her way out of a paper bag if it had just gotten out of paper bag prison.
Kthor: I rented this thinking it was a documentary on the cancer-riddled palates of Kentucky tobacco chewers, replete with long, lingering close-ups of the black, rotten, toothless caves that the inside of their mouths had become, and was sorely disappointed. Kevin Costner grosses me out.

Seanbaby: In Freaked, there's a scene where they throw a mutant kid out of an airplane and he falls thousands of feet to smack into the ground. And every time I'm about to trick myself into thinking I have a sophisticated sense of humor, I catch myself rewinding that scene five hundred times.
Kthor: Alex Winter may be the neglected comic genius of the 1990s. Freaked is brilliantly stupid, the kind of comedy those two Fangoria stoner guys in the back of the class would make if you handed them a suitcase full of money, PCP and face putty and a 16mm camera. Should be higher on the list.
