->''"A few weeks back, while I was in the depths of despair after ranting about ''Film/HighlanderEndgame'', I set out on a quest with Sarah to watch a ''good'' Christopher Lambert movie. Unfortunately, no such thing exists outside of the original ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' and perhaps ''[[Film/GreystokeTheLegendOfTarzanLordOfTheApes Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan]]''. However, there are a lot of ''mediocre'' Christopher Lambert movies out there..."''

->''"If ''Anime/NinjaScroll'' is Kawajiri at his best, and ''Anime/WickedCity'' is at his worst, then ''Demon City Shinjuku'' is driving straight down the middle. It may be kind of stupid, but not nearly as stupid as ''Wicked City', and it may have some good action beats, but not nearly as good as ''Ninja Scroll''. [[SarcasmMode This review is gonna be scintillating isn't it?]]

-''">Notice the jump that happens at the 5 score. Notice how the whole tone of the guide changes. Suddenly the guide is not talking about the fine points of addressing the prompt; it is talking about the life-choking drabness of it all. You can almost hear the guide's author muttering under his or her breath, 'I wish we could give these essays an even lower score; they are so boring!' The 5 essay is a trap; many 5 essays are written by good students, and most of these students probably think they wrote a pretty good essay. But in actuality they wrote only an adequate essay, a mechanical essay, a commonplace essay—a boring essay. After grading the fifty-fifth essay of the day, a reader writes down a 5 and picks up another essay from the pile, praying: "Please, not another drab, boring 5 essay!"''
