Hudson Hawk Review

Originally this was going to be a review of the movie Arthur. It was on my Gilmore movie list but I couldn’t figure out why I had put it on the list from the episode. Also I couldn’t figure out exactly which movie it was because Arthur was a common name but I also deducted that it wasn’t the PBS cartoon series. I watched this movie for about 37 seconds until Dudley Moore’s incessant laugh made me want to punch the TV.

So to save my electronics I switched to Hudson Hawk. This is a 1991 Bruce Willis and Andie MacDowell movie. It’s about a thief who times his robberies perfectly by singing a song that is exactly that length. Really, this should have been more pronounced in the movie because it was so funny but when Sandra Bernhard tries to take over the world the plot goes in a lot of different directions at once. This was part of the worst movie festival of all time that they put together at the video store in the Richard in Stars Hollow episode. It’s such a bad movie that it’s good.

Mildred Pierce Review

This was one of the Gilmore movie references that I watched and felt very clever for discovering. Then I watched an episode of Gilmore Girls and basically realized that I had probably chosen the old black and white film from a subliminal Gilmore Girl suggestion. Lorelai accuses Rory of “Mildred Pierce-ing” her. This film is about a mother daughter relationship enshrouded in a murder mystery. It’s definitely worth watching. Watch it so you can use Mildred Pierce as a verb.

The Worst Movie in the World

Ok so this wasn’t a movie on the Gilmore list.  However, I like to think that if the show was still on it would have been mentioned.  It’s one of those shows that is so bad it’s good.  The kind that whenever anyone walks into my house I say “You have to watch it.  It’s the worst movie in the entire world.  No, I can’t watch it with you, I can’t take it anymore.” The worst movie I’ve ever seen hands down is:

Ripple Effect

It pretty much ensures that I will never attend or trust any of the small film festivals where it won awards. Whats the worst movie that the Gilmores never mentioned?
