All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

God Bless America (2011)

Starring: Joel Murray, Tara Lynn Barr
Director: Bobcat Goldthwait

Premise:
A terminally ill man who is sick of so-called celebrities with no talent goes on a killing spree to wipe them out. Along the way he picks up a teenage girl who shares his value.

My Take:
Goldthwait as a writer and director makes some extremely dark comedies. No exception here. A great social commentary on the "new" fifteen minutes of fame and how reality television is shaping the country.
Great dialog, though at times a bit preachy, in this smart script with solid performances. A tad bit of gore adds to the fun.

Rating: So Good
