NEILL CUMPSTON: THE HOT SCREAMING FILM REVIEWS OF PATTON OSWALT


Patton Oswalt is a serious film geek.  He's so hardcore that he ended writing a book about his film addiction entitled Silver Screen Fiend about a four year stretch where he watched movies virtually every single night.  He calls it an addiction, but I say it sounds like my idea of a good time.  Many people would probably say the same thing about crack, so perspective is probably key here.  In any case, film is in his DNA.  You can hear it in his stand up and you can read it in his writing.




For years Patton wrote reviews for the website Aint It Cool News under the pseudonym Neill Cumpston.  The reviews are wildly inappropriate, with loads in basic errors about the films, and yet they are all completely dead on.  Also, hilarious because Patton Oswalt.  Really, these are not for kids, unless your kids are deranged sailors.  No judgements.

Here are links to some Neill Cumpston reviews.  NSFW, if you plan on reading things out loud.
