SURROGATES (2009)

SURROGATES avoids most of the interesting questions in exchange for shoddy action sequences.  And Bruce is wasted — they could’ve plugged anyone into this role.

FREAKED (1993)

Several people have told me how great FREAKED is, but I just don’t see it.  The comedy is very heavy on pop culture and current event references, and this style bares too close a resemblance to “The Family Guy” (which I’ve never found funny), for me.  Kevin Costner and Kim Basinger were good looking actors in the early ’90s.  I get it.  Ha ha.

Still, the makeup/creature effects are awesome, and Randy Quaid gives a bizarrely entertaining performance.
