She has no review but did give it a half-star rating.

Ok last one: The Killing of a Sacred Deer
Vegan alert:
-In the beginning, a teenage boy is wearing a leather watch.
-Also, there is fresh fish being cut and prepared. Someone notes that "fish cheeks" taste good.
-There is also blood and a lot of violence toward humans.

Wow, I just looked up the reviewer you guys have been quoting, and some of these are gold!

Mad Monster Party
Vegan alerts:
-Chopped liver and pickled salmon references
-A dish that is marinated in mice
-Octopus soup (the animal is shown coming out of the pot)
-There's a pig's head on a plate
-Hyena casserole
-Reference to a cheese sandwich
Belle de Jour
Vegan alert:
There is a song. In French, it refers to "ham" and "sausage". The English subtitles refer to "ham" and "eggs" (the translation differed in order to make the song rhyme).
Savage Streets
Vegan alerts:
-Linda Blair's character, Brenda, says she's going to slaughter a bad guy just like pigs are slaughtered. She takes into consideration how they feel.
-I just read on IMDB that Linda Blair is indeed vegan, so brownie points for that.
The Cat Returns
Vegan alerts:
-A girl tries to feed a cat fish
-A girl says “stupid cats”
-A mouse offers raw fish to eat

Clearly I’ve been misunderstanding what Veganism entails for many years

Vegan alert:
-Daniel Day Lewis goes to a restaurant and orders a heart attack for breakfast: Welsh rarebit (a dish loaded with melted cheese) with poached egg (not too runny) with bacon AND sausage and cream with a whole lot of other things vegan and otherwise.
-There is lots of butter in this movie among other non-vegan foods.

Are you a PETA agent sent here to ruin my evening and possibly my entire life?

She's getting better at this, the following serves as vegan alert, plot hole critique, AND educational gardening advice!
-Father & daughter also eat a ton of eggs. BTW, where do they get these eggs? Did they steal them?
-They use the egg shells to outline their compost area. Eggs/meats are not recommended for creating a compost as it will attract animals.

Vegan alert: your profile picture is of a carnivorous reptile.

I wonder how she would rate Blood of the Beasts?

Not a 'rediculous review' per se, but I did laugh at the synopsis (I have no doubt it is accurate, it's just that I wasn't previously familiar with the film at all and had only added it to my queue as a Gene Hackman movie I hadn't seen prior) from Netflix for Loose Cannons:
A Washington D.C. cop (Gene Hackman) teams up with a man afflicted with a multiple personality disorder (Dan Aykroyd) who speaks in the voices of Tweety Bird, Captain Kirk, Pee-Wee Herman, Ricky Ricardo and the Wicked Witch of the West. Together, they trail a gang of neo-Nazis in an attempt to capture a porno film featuring Adolph Hitler in bed with a man who's about to be elected chancellor of West Germany.

I remember this movie only because this was the first film I ever saw featuring female nudity; I would have been eight or so when this hit home video, and I distinctly remember thinking during a topless (at least) scene in a club - not for the last time - that my local video store's willingness to rent any movie to someone with their parent's membership card was going to work out well for me.

There's an amusing footnote to this otherwise forgettable movie:
wikipedia wrote:In May 2013, Calgary Police investigated after footage from the film was found in a landfill by a worker, who mistook it for evidence of an actual murder. It was later noticed that Aykroyd was in the frame, and the police contacted his agent who, after some searching, stated that it was a section from this movie. TMZ reported that after the incident Aykroyd said, "The movie should have been left in the landfill where it belongs."

Richard Brody on Twitter:
(stage whisper: the Astaire-Rogers films are insipid in their comedy, their romance, and the filming of the dance; I'd rather watch Busby Berkeley anytime).
The Astaire/Rogers movies are textbook examples of how to film dance sequences so that audiences can follow and see the entire body in movement. This is one of the stupidest things a reputable critic has ever said, and based on it I'm guessing Brody knows nothing about musicals or dance

On the Almodovar film
I thought Julieta needed to get a hobby and quit grieving over her daughter that abandoned her. Not sure what her problem was and didn’t care.
