Pretty much exactly what it sounds like, but gorier.

An all-star cast of actors who were not yet all-stars fills out this decidedly mediocre story about a group of recent college grads trying to figure out what to do after college.  Ben Afleck’s character apparently occupies himself with growing the stupidest facial hair ever.

A documentary following three men who set out to traverse the Sahara desert on foot. All three are severely disappointed when they learn that mirages do not consist of seeing cacti turn into giant fried chicken legs.

Because Sean Bean makes one hell of a medieval knight:

When the bubonic plague begins to sweep through Europe, a knight (Sean Bean) is tasked with tracking down a woman who can reportedly revive the dead, all the while proving that typecasting can actually be a good thing for some actors. If you disagree, Bean will cut off your head with the broadsword he now carries everywhere.

A border patrol agent must kick enormous amounts of ass in order to save his kidnapped daughter. Also, he is Stone Cold Steve Austin.

_

…Because you will watch Milla Jovovich in anything:

Watch these movies…

…Because you want to see something good:

A documentary following the historic “Rumble in the Jungle” bout between prizefighting legends Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. I cannot, in all good faith, make fun of this film. Not because it’s good, but because I swear by the George Foreman Grill and anything with that man’s name on it.

_

…Because you’re bored:

An accomplished big-city businessman heads back to his hometown to solve a murder and climb trees naked.

_

…Because you’re drunk:

_

…Because your girlfriend has you by the balls:

Alfie is a suave British dude who gets all the ladies he wants, until one day he realizes that there is more to life than just having sex. Clearly this is some female-perpetrated propaganda. Disregard all life lessons contained within.

…Because you want to see something good:

Before taking a job with the DEA, a former soldier must come to terms with his overwhelming desire to completely f*ck up his life. But that gets boring, and he decides to just go around shooting people and smoking crack instead.

_

William S. Burroughs, founding father of the Beat movement and author of Naked Lunch, is the focus of this documentary. Of course, when I say “documentary” I mean “filmmaker’s valiant effort to tell the story of a man whose life pretty much defies all words, logic, or semblance of normalcy.” Also, he did a lot of drugs.

_

…Because you’re drunk:

Burt Reynolds and his mustache face off against a group of violent drug dealers who killed his best friend.

_

…Because you have no shame. No shame at all:

Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino teaches you how to be a huge tool in just 15 minutes a day.

After a metorological experiment goes awry, the wind becomes self aware and begins kidnapping children from a small town in the rural south. Or it could be a romantic epic set against the backdrop of the Civil War.

Watch these movies…

…Because you want to see something good:

The toys are back at it again, this time racing against the clock to save themselves from abandonment and imminent destruction. Anyone else wonder why they’ve never risen up and demanded equal rights? I mean, they have the same intellectual capacity as humans, right? Second-class citizens no doubt. And with that statement I am officially too old for Pixar movies.

_

…Because you’re bored:

A young man is diagnosed with a terminal illness and decides to drop everything in his life to embark on a solo journey across thousands of miles of road and wilderness. Think of it as The Motorcycle Diaries but with cancer. Huh… Now I’m sad.

_

…Because you’re drunk (really drunk):

Will Ferrell makes Will Ferrell jokes in this film starring Will Ferrell. Also, that guy from The Fighter is in it.

_

…Because you want to feel well-informed about how wasteful society is without actually changing your own consumption habits:

A renowned artist joins the ranks of the Brazilian catadores — an impoverished sect of the Brazilian population who pick through trash heaps to find items worth reselling. A must-see for anyone who enjoys feeling immense guilt.
