Cabin Fever (2002)
Cabin in the Woods, The (2012)
The Cabin In The Woods finds a way to transcend all genres it depicts and becomes something completely different from what we’ve come to expect. The rich humor, satisfying scares, and never-ending reveals make this film completely memorable. A perfect showing from Fran Kranz and Kristen Connolly, to which I truly hope this launches them into new and exciting paths in their careers.
Cable Guy, The (1996)
The darker the better, in a film directed by Ben Stiller and written by Judd Apatow, audiences can see Carrey play funny guy any day, but getting to see him play a twisted soul is truly unique.
Cairo Time (2010)
Call Me by Your Name (2018)
Campaign, The (2012)
The Campaign could use a little less Zach Galifianakis and a lot more Will Ferrell. With the latter carrying most of the overly funny portions of the film, Galifianakis’ character comes on a bit too strong. However, the comedy does eventually churn out an effective political satire with some great issues brought to light in the most humorous of ways. With these two men playing off each other wonderfully and some great cameos from John Lithgow and Dan Ackroyd, The Campaign levels out on average, proving not to be Ferrell’s best venture, but worth the time spent.
Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018)
Cape Fear (1991)
A great Scorsese film with an absolutely terrifying performance by Robert De Niro. His physical appearance alone makes this one of the most unique roles of his career. The camerawork is innovative. My favorite shot of the film is of De Niro being released from prison and walking straight into the camera. A tad long and bitterly dramatic, if it weren’t for De Niro’s presence, the film would be severely lacking.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Captain America offers much more than the normal superhero in tights flick. Expecting very little from the film, I was quite impressed, with performances and cinematic construction alike. Chris Evans is heavily supported by his fellow cast members, who are rather striking for landing very low on the most recognizable faces in Hollywood list. Hayley Atwell was astounding as the love interest and the attraction between the two main characters grows beyond what I believed Hollywood to be capable of. Dominic Cooper, who I know from many small films, finally makes a breakthrough role out of the yesteryear-Stark. Tommy Lee Jones is literally the best casting choice of the film, as he carries the most sophisticated comic relief an action film has ever had to offer. Even though the costume looks awkward, the villain falls flat, and the formulaic structure of the standard superhero film bleeds through, Captain America still muscles its way passed the quality of most of its “Avengers” companion pieces.
Captain Fantastic (2016)
Captain Marvel (2019)
Extremely restrictive taking place in one apartment for the duration of the film but if any four people could pull it off, it would be these four brilliant actors/actresses. Christoph Waltz is the main highlight, as he is the driving force behind most motivations in the film. The humor is nicely off-kilter and overall, this is an enjoyable stage play adaption from Roman Polanski.
There is something about a world of talking cars that left me slightly unsettled. Apart from my awkward feelings toward “Cars”, the production quality is superior, as we have come to expect from the animation giant of Disney/Pixar. The soundtrack was not of my taste but it fit the film just fine and the plot is chalk full of hearty lessons for the kids. Not sure this even holds a candle to the domineering “Toy Story”, but my five year nephew sure seems to enjoy this film and perhaps this will be his Disney classic, just not mine.
Cars 2 (2011)
Basically a reason to make an animated, comedic spy film, Cars 2 lacks any sort of exceptional area besides the animated prowess of Pixar that we have become accustomed. The original Cars film was hardly my favorite Pixar presentation and Cars 2 is even further down that list. The biggest mistake made was basing the entire film around Mater, with Lighting McQueen hardly in the film at all. This film would have made a great short or perhaps an episode for the television show, but as a feature length film, Cars 2 is lacking.
Cars 3 (2017)
Cartel Land (2015)
Case 39 (2010)
Let me begin by saying I thought this was going to be a crime drama where Zellweger gets in over her head in a case involving a young girl. Turns out this is “The Omen” meets “Orphan”. The film starts off powerful and dark up until the metaphysical aspect rears its bewildering head (without warning) very deep into the film, turning the entire plot upside down on itself. The moment bees start crawling out of Bradley Cooper’s ears, I was done with the film. A complete lack of understanding in the area of horror and just storytelling in general.
There is just enough style to make this film enjoyable. The humor is a bit stiff, but the narrator and his surrounding world is quite intriguing indeed.
A brilliant film that covers a lot of ground, although it is almost 3 hours long. Pesci is at his best and Scorsese’s unique humor carries this film every second of the film. De Niro is, as always, perfection.
Casino Jack (2010)
Didn’t quite capture the essence of the actual Jack Abramoff, although I would have enjoyed the this had it not been based on a true story and had I not seen the documentary entitled Casino Jack.
Casino Jack And The United States Of Money (2010)
Casino Royale (007) (2006)
Daniel Craig is the Bond we’ve been waiting for to revolutionize the role of 007. With an often tortured demeanor about him, he stills remains suave and cavalier. “Casino Royale” delivers all that is promised to us in a Bond film, while remaining unpredictable, an element that has been missing in 007 films since the beginning. With the idea that a Bond film is only as good as its villain remains true, as Mads Mikkelsen delivers a brilliant performance as Le Chiffre. Eva Green also screams perfection, grabbing attention with every appearance, yet remaining humanized, also an element lacking from previous installments, and leading up to one of the biggest reveals in a Bond film yet. “Casino Royale” is the re-invigoration that the series needed and will hopefully push this series to pinnacle of its potential.
Cast Away (2000)
Catch Me If You Can (2002)
A truly exciting film with a perfect style and solid performances from all involved, especially Leonardo DiCaprio, who, with this performance back in 2002, finally grabbed my attention as someone to watch rather than just the heartthrob his previous performances made him out to be. I expected nothing less from Hanks and Spielberg.
This film either makes me want to reach out… or makes me want to get rid of my Facebook. Maybe both. Maybe neither. I refuse to ruin this for anyone… See it!
Cat in Paris, A (2012)
Good but not great, A Cat In Paris is a short, yet extremely tight film about a cat and cat-burglar. The animation is done well enough not to distract, but in comparison to where animation is at, even hand-drawn animation, it does not compare.
Cedar Rapids (2011)
Failing to contain any laugh out loud moments, Cedar Rapids relies heavily on its dramatic elements and childlike wonderment from actor Ed Helms. The supporting cast is built just right, especially with the always humorous John C. Reilly who carries his part to perfection. The film definitely has a ‘throwback’ feel to it, the problem is, all of this attempt at comedy has been done before.
Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012)
Not only does “Celeste and Jesse Forever” launch two actors known for very specific performance types, it launches them in two much different fashions. Andy Samberg, known for his off-beat humor on SNL and unseen films like “Hot Rod”, takes a step towards the serious side, and it completely works. Rashida Jones, on the other hand, takes a step into the spotlight and proves that she can hang, both as an actress and as co-writer of the screenplay. The film itself is nothing new, but does develop in a way that makes you enjoy the characters, even the supporting ones. The humor is present, often in much needed moments of seriousness. Overall, the film evokes emotion in a real way, proving to satisfy both Indie audiences as well as those seeking mainstream romantic comedies.
Cemetery Junction (2010)
For a film written and directed by Ricky Gervais, “Cemetery Junction” is a rather straightforward coming-of-age drama, rather than the stocky, bland comedies we are used to from Gervais. With strong lead Christian Cooke leading the tale of a young man becoming an employee for an insurance company, run by the brilliant Ralph Fiennes, rather than working the factories like everyone around him. In his pursuit for the “dream”, he comes across the always gorgeous Felicity Jones, who steals every scene she’s apart of. Unable to escape his home life and unable reach his unattainable goals, the conclusion of the film brings shades of “The Graduate”.
Center Stage (2000)
Central Intelligence (2016)
Chalet Girl (2011)
What would otherwise be a mindless, sports comedy, the likes of “Grind” or “Out Cold”, aimed mostly at the female sex, “Chalet Girl” is wholly saved by the always impressive Felicity Jones, who makes it utterly impossible to not be drawn into her natural radiance and adorable, mousy demeanor. With Bill Nighy, Brooke Shields, Sophia Bush and Ed Westwick rounding out the cast, the film is plucked from its straight-to-dvd nature and given some much needed credibility. Although the scenes involving Jones and her fear of doing jumps is completely overdone and the ending needlessly predictable, giving any reason to have Felicity Jones in the starring role of any film is means enough for me to see it and enjoy it.
Chameleon, The (2011)
From the start, I had a hard time latching on to the main character and not because of great writing or directing, but because the actor was simply not believable. Most characters in this film act without instinct or drive, delivering spoon-fed dialogue for no apparent reason but to progress the plot. The Chameleon not only screams melo-drama but lacks any sort of mystery or suspense, feeling glossed over and unwatchable at times. Had the writers given this more time, I feel a much better story could have developed, but instead we are left with a film screaming “made-for-TV-movie” or “Lifetime-original drama”.
Change-Up, The (2011)
“The Change-Up” is bare bones, with hardly any original content and slim pickings in the comedy department. There are so many ideas floating around in this plot taken from any number of other productions. The fountain reminds me of the dismal “When In Rome”, the body switching is lamely reminiscent of “Freaky Friday”, and the relationship problems stem from every romantic comedy ever made. Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds are two high class comedians, but even this low brow comedy is not saved by them. Basically this film was a reason to see Leslie Mann and Olivia Wilde bare all (or close to all minus Wilde’s CGI-ed nipples).
Changing Lanes (2002)
Samuel L. Jackson delivers one of his most memorable performances as Doyle Gibson, an insurance agent and separated father of two, who is caught up in a horrible day. Jackson steps away from his in-your-face characters that we are used to and embarks as a downtrodden everyday citizen. Along with his performance, “Changing Lanes” produces a perfect dramatic script, with each moment building on top of the next. Each time Doyle or Gavin (Ben Affleck) could end this catastrophic day, they forget how to be civilized and instead of moving forward in their personal and business lives, they continuously take two steps back until their entire lives are shaken by the end of the day. The writing of the film always feels true and each actor embody their roles to a sincere perfection, creating a solid and time-tested thriller.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Charlie Bartlett (2007)
Wasn’t enough for me. Seemed more like a drama than a comedy and missed on a lot things. I kept wanting more from Downey Jr. and got nothing. Also, I just don’t like Yelchin as an actor but I thought Kat Dennings shined. Can’t wait to watch her in something else. Film fell short for me.
Charlie’s Angels (2000)
For being what it is, this is actually a very solid film. The ladies are gorgeous, Bill Murray is hilarious, and the action sequences are just intense enough to keep you watching. McG knows action and the fact that he can poke fun at the genre is enough to pull this off successfully.
Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003)
Lacking in many of the ways that made the first film somewhat enjoyable, “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” is dismal in both the action department and in comedy. Bernie Mac is often a caricature of his role, Shia LaBeouf is barely worth the screen-time he was paid for, and ultimately there is nothing striking about this film besides a recycling of small elements and plot-lines from the original.
Chasing Ice (2012)
“Chasing Ice” is as visually stunning as it is socially enlightening. James Balog, an acclaimed photography, brings the best of both worlds into a documentary that highlights the indisputable facts about global warming, through the photographic proof of several glaciers, which have been around for thousands and thousands of years, that are melting and breaking off into the oceans at an alarming rate. The documentary not only takes you on an adventure as Balog attempts to plant over a dozen different cameras out in the Arctic elements to capture the photos, but it inspires social change with the immense cataclysmic change that our earth is undergoing at a rapid pace. Overwhelmed from most of the imagery, I had a strong connection with this film and could have looked at Balog’s photography for much longer. One of the best documentaries of the year and of recent memory, also gaining an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song which surprising was performed by actress Scarlett Johansson.
Cheap Thrills (2014)
Chernobyl Diaries (2012)
With many ups and downs (mostly downs) “Chernobyl Diaries” squanders its semi-interesting plot, disregarding its “found footage” demeanor within the first few minutes. If any film could have benefited from that shaky camera footage, it was this one. Giving props for thinking outside the box (with a surprise appearance from a bear!), there is really nothing to see besides people doing dumb things in dumb places, just asking to be brutally murdered.
Chico & Rita (2012)
Though all of the characters come off completely unlikeable at times, the romantic and musical natures of Chico & Rita pull this nod to old school, hand-drawn animation to new heights. The plot is engaging, taking a different route from most animated features we experience these days, and even allowing for nudity and sex. Chico & Rita is a true-love narrative that keeps its leads apart for most of the film. The story is told through flashbacks, as Chico, aged, sits at a table looking through a box of his memories. He remembers being a talented pianist with his agent Ramon. He remembers meeting Rita and falling for her, but there is always an obstacle to present itself in keeping them apart. Chico & Rita really is a great film, both for an animated film and a narrative. Few films can effectively utilize a “full spectrum” plot or a plot that follows characters throughout their entire lives, but this film achieves that feat wonderfully.
Children of Men (2006)
Long takes and handheld cameras never looked so good. Deep and rich for being a film about the dismal future of our society, placing right alongside “The Road” as far as superior set design and imagery, yet pitch-perfect cinematography that very few films carry. The film also does a nice job of relying on only three “big name” studio actors, with the rest of the cast made up of basically unknown actors/actresses, which really helps this film reach a higher level. Clive Owen nails this performance.
Child’s Play (1988)
The doll alone is frightening enough to make this film scary. Add to that a homicidal spirit inhabiting the doll, and the film earns its place next to the Freddy Kruegers and Jason Voorhees of horror villains. Child’s Play has an accessible plot, with the doll returning to first kill those who wronged him and then to get the child as to switch bodies with him. An acceptable start to a franchise.
Christmas Story, A (1983)
Christopher Robin (2018)
With found-footage films completely losing steam, Chronicle adds yet another film to the flailing genre. The characters are so two-dimensional, the twists are telegraphed, and the effects are not polished enough to deserve any recognition. Overall, yet another mediocre found footage film.
Citizen Kane (1941)
City of Angels (1998)
Probably the best thing Meg Ryan has ever done, this film is both touching and twisted. Oddly enough, I really want to know what devout Catholics think about this film: that a) an angel must basically commit suicide to become human and b) Cage’s character Seth engages in premarital sex as his first human act. Feels like a Nicholas Sparks novel adaption before they were “cool”.
Clash of the Titans (1981)
Honorable in its attempt and majestic for its time, the original Clash of the Titans becomes more frustrating than entertaining, reflecting the inability to bridge the gap of time. With a multitude of unwarranted reaction shots and one of the work pacing issues of any film to-date, instead of building appropriate tension, Clash of the Titans lazily dwells on too many insignificant moments, too much of the time. Though the stop animation is way out-dated, I respect the film on the level of its time, but even so, this version of the Greek myth fails to stand the test of time.
Client List, The (2010)
Pretty much just watched this to see what Jennifer Love Hewitt was doing with her life. She is still absolutely gorgeous, but the film suffers from the Lifetime channel movie syndrome and really lacks anything special. Love Hewitt’s role comes off more of a watered down version of Sandra Bullock’s motherly character in “Blind Side”, but with more skimpy outfits.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
Cloud Atlas (2012)
The one word that I would use to describe “Cloud Atlas” is ambitious. In the day and age where coming up with even one interesting story with a complete narrative arc can prove to be a difficult act, The Wachowski siblings take on the daunting task of telling six different stories, which at times inter-connect, in one giant film. Though certain stories seem somewhat out of place when matched with the rest, specifically “The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish”, overall, the film is effectively intriguing throughout. The multiple uses of actors in several different roles can, at times, be confusing, but overall provides a nice little game of who’s who, which culminates in the end credits where you are shown every character that each actor played. If The Wachowskis have achieved anything besides a majestic, visually stunning piece of cinema, it is a film that will cause for multiple viewings.
Clouds of Sils Maria (2015)
Wasn’t that big of a fan. The hand-held camera work was absolutely amazing, but the rest of the story wasn’t. It reminded of Godzilla way too much and the whole storyline hardly held my attention. The ending seemed abrupt and made me not want to care.
Cloverfield Paradox, The (2018)
Cold War (2018)
Collector, The (2009)
Great concept. This film surprised the hell out of me and I actually enjoyed myself watching this film. I was expecting what the Saw films have become and instead you get an awesome storyline like this. Totally worth a watch.
Zoe Saldana sells this role as best she can, fitting the sexy femme fatale persona perfectly. However, the weak storytelling, repetitive revenge flick motif and haphazard love story keep this film from being anything more than average.
Columbus Circle (2010)
Intriguing up until the first big reveal, the remainder of “Columbus Circle” becomes a downward spiral of reveal-reveal-reveal, to the point of its twists meaning very little by the end. What helps keep the film afloat is the perfect cast, including some above average performances from Selma Blair and Amy Smart. Giovanni Ribisi and Jason Lee also carry their roles respectfully, turning what could have been a dismal “B” thriller, into a sub-par yet ultimately enjoyable “mystery”.
Comedy, The (2012)
Commuter, The (2018)
Company Men, The (2011)
Achingly truthful, The Company Men takes a cold hard look at the state of our humanity through the eyes of a hand full of working men, both blue and white collar. The cast was skillfully chosen, with Affleck continuing to win me over. Tommy Lee Jones was about the best casting chose for this intense, contemplative role. The subject matter of the film both entertains and scares, with these situations remaining extremely real and true to life. Not only do I fear for my own future career and financial well-being, but I fear for the entire economy and this film sheds a serious, dramatic light on that.
Complete History of My Sexual Failures, A (2008)
You have to give props to a man who is willing to bear all in front of a camera. I am unsure as to whether certain parts of the film were staged or not, but for the most part it is easy to fall into this journey through a man’s catacomb of relationships.
Despite it’s extremely uneasy demeanor, “Compliance” evokes a powerful emotional response from its viewers and succeeds in creating a forum for commentary on the state of obedience and our society. Ann Dowd’s performance renders me speechless, nailing down such a thought-provoking character, alongside Dreama Walker, who takes her next big step towards the spotlight. If the film had not been based on true events, it would have been hard to buy into this unbelievable series of occurrences, but with that knowledge of real life national headlines, the film benefits by becoming a window into the psyche of not only a deranged prank caller, but also those asked to do things beyond their boundaries, and complying.
Con Air (1997)
With a stellar cast that pushes this film beyond your typical 90’s action film, Nicolas Cage is a high-end action hero facing off against John Malkovich as one of the best villains of any film and one of his best performances to-date. With a high octane plot and perfectly built moments, “Con Air” reaches a level of success that few blow-’em-up action films can ever achieve.
Conan the Barbarian (2011)
Blood, breasts, and more blood, Conan the Barbarian is a film of happenstance. With no real direction, Conan kills for the sake of killing and meanders through his world, stumbling upon the men whom killed his father. To be fair, however, the slaughtering looks great, Rachel Nichols and Rose McGowan play their parts beautifully, and without having seen the original, the film lives up to basically what I believed it would be.
Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop (2011)
Very different from the man that we see on television, Conan O’Brien is a much deeper, cynical man than he appears. Constantly striving for perfection, he often takes his anger out on those around him and Conan’s onscreen personality simply does not scream that type of persona. The traveling aspect of the film is somewhat lacking, but I feel that the point of film is to show a man who is at the beck and call of his fans and how it drains him at times. Ultimately, I was hoping for more humor, but it is definitely insightful to see the man behind the “mask”.
Confessions of a Superhero (2007)
An in-depth look into the psychosis of four individuals that have chosen to be superhero attractions on Hollywood Boulevard. There is an emotional quality, character study to this film that is unmatched by any documentary before it.
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004)
Dated and blatant, Where The Heart Is basically tries too hard and mish-mashes far too many events and ideas into one film. A critic said it best when he referred to it as “a great big ol’ commercial for the Wal-Mart”.
“Congo” packs as much of the source material from Michael Crichton’s novel as it can into a 90 minute film, with a memorable plot progression and perfect casting.
Conjuring 2, The (2016)
Conspirator, The (2011)
Solidly built around the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and those who conspired to kill him, Robert Redford directs this court room drama with such a stacked cast that it is hard to turn away from. James McAvoy carries most of the film, with a supporting cast of big enough names to keep them from fading into the background. The story is a bit dry and the plot points contrived, but the costumes and sets keep you in the era, coming off more like a Broadway play with A-list actors.
More of a horror film than any slasher flick, Contagion proves that Soderbergh should not be retiring. His willingness to linger on characters and ability to cause fear in an audience make Contagion one of the best natural disaster films to date. The ensemble cast sells well, but it is the unknowns like Jennifer Ehle and Anna Jacoby-Heron that make the film truly unique.
With a basic heist plot, a standard good performance from Mark Wahlberg, and well placed reveals, Contraband entertains more than the average action film. Ben Foster proves he’s a main event player (if he hasn’t done so already) with a deep performance that exemplifies all the qualities that we have grown to love from him. The suspense is also well placed, with tons of close-calls and mishaps. Though I saw this being a rip-off of Gone In 60 Seconds (also starring the talented Giovanni Ribisi), it was actually a nice companion piece, nailing the same marks yet in a different and entertaining way.
“Conviction” is all about the real life story of Betty Anne Waters and her brother, Kenny. Kenny is arrested under questionable circumstances which leads to Betty becoming a lawyer solely to get her brother out of jail. It truly is an amazing story and this is on the top of the list for true story based films. Great performances as you would expect from both Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell. Great to see a Peter Gallagher showing as well. Love that man!
Cop Out (2010)
Interracial buddy cop comedies are done to death. Rush Hour. I-Spy. Nothing To Lose. Blue Streak. National Security. The newest in the genre, Cop Out, brings nothing new to the table.
Wonderfully adapted, David Cronenberg’s dialogue heavy “Cosmopolis”, though widely alienating, is unrelenting in its complex structure involving a billionaire and those he encounters in his trek across town in his high-tech limousine. Beneath the over-your-head conversations comes a truly dark comedic backdrop along with the connection (or lack thereof) between intellectuals in this financial business setting. Robert Pattinson responds fine to carrying the film, never sticking out of place, while actress Sarah Gadon steals the show with every scene she’s apart of.
Countdown to Zero (2010)
Country Strong (2011)
As melodramatic as this could have been, the overall quality of Country Strong was far from the horrible disaster that I anticipated it to be. Leighton Meester actually out acts Paltrow, as well as Garrett Hedlund out acting Tim McGraw. The story still gets very wishy-washy, never explaining key plot shifts and leaving the audience in the dark but the music holds up and “Coming Home” is truly a great song. I still see this as the female version of “Crazy Heart”, except watered down and hardly the attraction that Jeff Bridges displayed.
Couples Retreat (2009)
Cove, The (2009)
Powerful! One of the best (if not the best) documentaries I have ever seen. This is investigator journalism at its best! It is heavily one sided but makes a pretty good case of explaining off absolutely every defense the dolphin killers have. Raw and unequivocal!
Covenant, The (2006)
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
A true Western through and through, with science fiction tied in to perfection. Along with a stellar cast that exhibits an acting prowess to their full potential and genius story-telling, Cowboys and Aliens becomes one of my favorite movies of this blockbuster summer. The odds are completely stacked against the humans and there is something about pistols and bows that brings out our miniscule speck of existence compared to the grand nature of potential extraterrestrial, but with some unforeseeable twists and a wild card in Daniel Craig, the film gains a sense of balance that steadies the film nicely. Despite the negative reviews, this film remains consistently entertaining from start to finish.
Coyote Ugly (2000)
Cracks is a dark, yet poetic look into the lives of a small group of sheltered school girls. Eva Green plays their teacher, sharing exotic stories and seducing the girls with her charm and “life experience”. But when the new French student, Fiamma is introduced, favoritism drives them all apart, eventually leading to some very unexpected twists, the likes that a period drama has never seen. Sexy, yet innocent, this film surprises in the best of ways.
Crazy Eyes (2012)
As unrewarding as the main character’s sex life, “Crazy Eyes” is an attempt at being trendy and clever all while completely missing its mark. Repetitive and completely unbound from any sort of cohesion, the talented young cast of Luke Haas, Jake Busey, and the exceptionally sexy Madeline Zima are completely wasted in their weak, paper thin roles that do absolutely nothing for them, both in the Indie world and in their long futures ahead.
Creed II (2018)
Crimson Peak (2015)
Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 (short) (2013)
Cruel Intentions (1999)
Filled with breakthrough performances still representing these actors and actresses to this day and introducing sexual discovery to a generation over a decade ago, Cruel Intentions continues to carry its same weight today without falling into the oldie, but goodie pile, remaining a pop-culture icon. Though the iconic image of the film was Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair sharing a passionate kiss, the film reaches far further than just shock value and becomes one of the most memorable films from that generation and for that generation.
