Re: Recommend me a good satire (explaination below)

What do you think of Black and Blue (2019)

I thought it was overall good. Some of the plot turns were far fetched, and a bit of a reach I felt.

I had a hard time believing there were that many corrupt cops plus the coroner's are in on it...

What do you think of Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)?

I just saw it and I like Steve Martin a lot, but this one feels like a mess of different plot ideas, that doesn't really come quite together. The scenes from older movies spliced in, just add to the...

Re: Films You Hate, But Everyone Else Loves

Gladiator
