RW Quarterly, Vol. III - Issue 2

Any whore worth his salt knows you have to step back from the daily grind now and again to do a little bookkeeping. The Reel Whore Quarterly indexes all the films I've seen over the last 3 months.

Every review I've posted is linked. Films italicized in blue are in the review queue so be sure to check back for those. If a film below deserves a whore-treatment but isn't slated to receive it, request it!

Okay, let me start with apologies to Jason of Invasion of the B Movies and A.P. Simon of The Ramblings of a Minnesota Geek who requested I review Attack Girls Swim Team vs. the Undead and to Fletch of Blog Cabins who asked for my two cents on The Fifth Element. I've been a total blog douche these past three months by not ever honoring their requests. Surprisingly, Attack Girls is an insanely difficult movie to wrap a review around without ruining it for viewers, so I had to rewatch segments of it. That didn't help as much as I hoped, but you can expect the review very, very soon, I promise.

Looking back at the second quarter of 2010, I've been one lazy-ass movie blogger. I watched 40 films this quarter, four less than the first of the year. The continuing decline is still due to the horrendous viewing choices available at the megaplexes. Week after shitty week has sent me running into the warm glow of my television. Watching shows like Dexter, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Spaced via Netflix, while totally engrossing, has sucked away serious review time.

A new quarter is right around the corner. I hope these summer months will help rekindle my cinematic love affair, but only time will tell. With this post out of the way, I'll be starting the July Trailer Trash tomorrow. Be sure to come back and see which films have the best chance for getting this whore all hot and bothered.

Like before, if you see a film below that you want my opinion on, don't be afraid to ask. I promise I won't be a complete tool like I was last quarter.

  1. oh please review "killshot"! it was so wonderfully terrible!

  2. Ah Killshot. I'm going to have to scratch my head on that one - I've tried to forget everything about it, except for Rosario. :-)

    Hitman Rourke, crazyboy JGL; it's coming back to me. *shudder*. I'll see what I can do.

  3. I forgive you about SWIM TEAM. It's close to the #1 spot on my Netflix Que, so I'll know soon enough.

    They're already in your queue, but I'd love to read reviews on GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and KICK-ASS.

  4. Great news! My review for Attack Girls is officially up! I tried to keep from spoiling anything, but honestly the movie has so much going on, it'd be hard to do.

    I've been itching to get Dragon Tattoo written. This will be the month I clear my backlog.
