The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Shawshank Redemption Quote: “I believe in two things: discipline and the Bible. Here you’ll receive both. Put your trust in the Lord; your ass belongs to me. Welcome to Shawshank.” – Warden Norton

“The Shawshank Redemption” is one of the finest prison movies ever made, worthy of its 1995 Oscar nomination. But does it hold its own against the other cinematic giants of 1994: “Pulp Fiction,” “Forrest Gump,” “Quiz Show,” and “Four Weddings And A Funeral?”

And why did it cost Gene Lyons his first kiss from the girl of his dreams? Continue reading The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Pulp Fiction Quote: “Well, I’m a mushroom-cloud-layin’ motherfucker, motherfucker! Every time my fingers touch brain, I’m Superfly T.N.T., I’m the Guns of the Navarone!” – Jules Winnfield

Some say there’s no such thing as a perfect movie. We say, “You need to rewatch ‘Pulp Fiction.'” Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 quasi-noir masterpiece has earned the first-ever perfect score from Shat The Movies.

The mind-blowing cast includes Bruce Willis, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Harvey Keitel, Uma Thurman, Ving Rhames, Christopher Walken, Tim Roth, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Steve Buscemi and Peter Greene. The mind-blowing script contains too many quotes to list. Continue reading Pulp Fiction (1994)

Highlander (1986)

Highlander Quote: “I don’t like boats and I don’t like water. I’m a man, not a fish!” – Connor MacLeod

Is “Highlander” the worst ’80s movie? Perhaps. Is it the worst movie Shat The Movies has reviewed? Definitely.

Christopher Lambert can’t act. Sean Connery isn’t Egyptian or Spanish. We still don’t understand why “there can be only one.” The movie starts on a high note with Freddie Mercury belting out Queen’s “Princes of The Universe,” and two very long hours later ends up in the toilet. Continue reading Highlander (1986)

Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

Revenge of the Nerds Quote: “I do not know what this world is coming to. See that man over there. We arrested him for mopery” – Sergeant

We all remember “Revenge of The Nerds” as a fun ’80s college movie, but there’s a much darker side when you watch it today. What we once saw as pig pranks, masked sex, panty raids, crazy house parties and fiery undies now can be viewed as animal abuse, rape, theft, arson, hate crimes and assault.

Does that ruin the movie, or do the jokes still shine through? Do Booger’s burps, Ogre’s brawn or Takashi’s Engrish outshine the creep factor of secret video cameras in Pi Delta Pi sorority house? The Shat the Movies team debates these issues and more in this review of the 1984 classic “Revenge of the Nerds.” Continue reading Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
