GodzillaKart - 3/6/2014, 5:44 AM
I could barely stomach the first one. My gag reflex on stupid is pretty low. I won't be going back for seconds.

Good morning east coasters. I am a huge fan of the first movie, and it made zack one of my favorite young directors. He did something that hadnt been done on screen with his filters, dark tone and using the slo mo choppy action angles. Being an artist his movie really grabs ur attention n visually it take u to a place of extacy. It just looks lkke this new guy is trying to copy zack, so its like a knock off of his style?? That being said, i felt it would have been better as a stand alone movie. After seeing the first movie i felt complete. No need to add a prequel or sequel cause im already satisfied with the story. You wouldnt make a Scarface 2. So i bave no intention on seeing it in the theater, but ill red box that bitch, lol t
nach1wan - 3/6/2014, 7:16 AM
theres a scarface game that changes the ending of the film, and he pretty much ends up being king of everything by the game's end
MsDarkPhoenix - 3/6/2014, 7:17 AM
@Batman You are Bruce Wayne!
CrimsonFlash - 3/6/2014, 7:34 AM
To those confused about the title watch the first one he ever did. I think it was thor the dark world. Basically its making fun of people on the internet where every movie is either the best or worst movie ever haha
HulkDraxGroot - 3/6/2014, 7:35 AM
saw it tonight. WAS AMAZING!
NicolausCopernicus - 3/6/2014, 7:49 AM
there is no such thing as best or worst movie ever
blackandyellow - 3/6/2014, 7:53 AM
All of his reviews are titled Worst or Best Movie Ever. It's a play on fanboys penchant for using hyperbole.
thejackwagon94 - 3/6/2014, 8:03 AM
What did I TELL you about interruptin' my kung fu?!
manofsteel1942 - 3/6/2014, 8:04 AM
It has Eva Green and Lena Headey so If nothing else it will be Fap-Tastic..!!
blackandyellow - 3/6/2014, 8:16 AM
Yeah and don't forget about Roadhouse 2: Last Call.

DrunkenNukem - 3/6/2014, 9:08 AM
What about this worst movies... Rocky V, Speed Racer, Hercules, Terminator 3, Mortal Kombat 2, Street Fighter, Scary Movie 5, Max Payne....is this movie in the same category with those films?
VictorHugo - 3/6/2014, 9:58 AM
My worst movies ever: Batman and Robin, Catwoman, Magnolia and Gangs of New york.
blackandyellow - 3/6/2014, 10:58 AM
VictorHugo, Gangs of New York as one of the worst movies ever? You're a monster.
CaptainMexico - 3/6/2014, 11:16 AM

I remember that scarface game! It was like Gta kind, and you could go into Coke rage mode which made you temporary invincible.
DrunkenNukem - 3/6/2014, 12:01 PM
I enjoyed ...Gangs of New York
GodzillaKart - 3/6/2014, 12:19 PM
@VictorHugo: You put "Gangs of New York" and "Magnolia" in the same class as Catwoman and Batman and Robin?!

The first two are great films.
eleven59 - 3/6/2014, 12:38 PM
I second Gusto's list as worse ever...
FOOM - 3/6/2014, 1:11 PM
Gangs of New York was just embarrassing. And unwatchable.
CaptainRedFurySpain - 3/6/2014, 1:13 PM
Pointless and unnecessary sequel.
