  1. I thought you were unimpressed with Stake Land?

  2. I was let down with Stake Land, but still liked it. It was my most anticipated film of the year, I had crazy high hopes for it. While it wasn't everything I hoped it to be, it was still good and insanely impressive for the budget they were working with. Which is why it landed in the Top 10.

  3. Seriously you payed to see scream 4 ?
    For the love of god man you should have known better and yes the accountant was awesome in Drive Angry.
