M. Night Shyamalan Movies

Sunday, February 20, 2011 at 7:39 am

I’ve never been a big fan of M. Night Shyamalan movies.

That being said, I still wanted to put [...]

If you’ve watched one or more Kevin Smith movies, then you’ll notice a number of recurring elements. First, there’s the toilet humor and liberal use of foul language.

Peter Jackson Movies Like a kid in a cinematic candy store, New Zealand director Peter Jackson never misses an opportunity to sprinkle his films with fantastical elements and often a healthy dose of black humor. He’s best known for his big-screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series, but he also made a [...]

Quentin Tarantino Movies

Sure, his manic behavior, large forehead, and all-around geekiness set him apart from more reserved (ie “normal”) contemporaries like Robert Rodriguez, but he makes up for it by [...]
