Tired of antiquated "classics" that just don't cut it? Movie critic Nigel S. reveals the hypocrisy of the film critic elite by exposing some of the greatest movies in the world for what they are - flawed, dated, boring, pretentious garbage. Did you know that no one actually heard Charles Foster Kane say "Rosebud"? Or that the movie Lawrence of Arabia acts more like he hates the Arabs? What about the film "classic" that's blatantly pro-KKK? Or the fact that the whole premise of Hitchcock's endlessly-praised Rear Window utterly invalidates itself? When you saw Sunset Blvd. and just didn't get it, you weren't the one in the wrong - it's the picture that was small. It's time to face facts: The 100 Best Movies Ever Made ...Mostly Suck.

Man, I didn't know what to expect from this, was it humor or a serious study or what. Well, turns out its satire and it is HI-LARIOUS. This Nigel no-last-name guy tears the classics to pieces, but in a smart, informed way. Its clear he knows a lot about movies but refuses to pull punches just because something is considered a "classic." I laughed until tears were pouring from my eyes at the entries for Citizen Kane and some of the more obscure, artsy films. Totally recommended for the snobby movie fan in your life.
