The Boondock Saints II

More comedic, (slightly) less violent and featuring at least one female character (Dexter’s Julie Benz), BSII: All Saints Day doesn’t improve on the 1999 cult classic—but it is more fun to watch drunk. What more can you ask for?

In Plain Sight: Season 2

The only USA Network series as cool as Burn Notice, starring Mary McCormack as a U.S. marshal managing relocated Fed witnesses while dealing with a weirdo partner and crazy family members. Hey, it is Burn Notice.

Local H: 68 Angry Minutes

Chicago’s premier rock duo perform their album 12 Angry Months live, start to finish, at the Beat Kitchen. See, kiddies, Local H are the only ’90s “grunge” band who still make great music—EdVed and Pearl Jam can suck it.

Possession

Sarah Michelle Gellar stars in yet another moody-broody horror flick from the Ring/Grudge people. What’s she staring at blankly this time? Her husband and brother-in-law in comas after a car wreck—and sinister evil is afoot!

Turn the Beat Around

When not producing terrible reality shows, MTV produces terrible movies—like this one, about a dancer in Hollywood caught between her dancer boyfriend, a sleazy disco owner and a choreographer. It’s Showgirls funny.

"What more can you ask for?" from Boondock Saints II?

Two words: Willem Dafoe. He should have gotten an award for playing the eccentric FBI agent in the original. And Billy Connolly's part as the supernatural hitman in the original was silly and a distraction.
