Tales of Armada

"I want them to remember me with a shudder." Filthy's mind often wanders when reviewing films in his hometown of Armada, Colorado, regailing us with occasional snippets of wage slavery, sympathy, Larry, Jimmy, Gooden, the Harelip of the Armada Tavern, and growing up.

Reminds me of Pitchfork reviews - except I listen to Filthy a little more. I thought he died a while ago, though. There was a message from Mrs. Filthy saying he was hit by car while riding his bike, but I guess he pulled through.

I would of thought Filthy is the antithesis of Pitchfork - he loathes pretentious bastards. (Note, I do read both sites.)

That's Arvada Colorado, not "Armada". Though "Armada" works if we're talking about a review for Bowling For Columbine. Which it seems Filthy failed to review.

Used to read Filthy quite often. My favorite review of his: the Star Wars Christmas Special. He waxes (bitter) nostalgic on the release of Pac-man for the Atari, wookie porn, and other things...

Filthy's review of Mulholland Drive is every bit as flawed and meandering and ultimately as GREAT as the movie. It's the only review of that film that did it justice.

Whoa...I thought he called it quits a while back.

He only pretended to die. He's been back for a good while now. Filthy is king. I hardly ever disagree.

Nice stuff. I take it he's a big fan of the early reviews of Joe Bob Briggs.

I love the first two paragraphs of his Ghost World review.

Anyone who can double review The Passion of The Christ and Club Dread (and give them the same # of fingers) is way okay in my book. Thanks Alex!
