Thor: Ragnarok

We originally saw Ragnarok months and months ago, while it was still in the theater. It was a hilarious and amazing film, so I don’t know why it took me so long to put together a review. Maybe it’s the gushing – I feel uncomfortable gushing – it’s so much more fun writing about a […]

Slither

Not what I expected from the writer of Tromeo and Juliet. It wasn’t that the film wasn’t gross enough – it was plenty gross. No small amount of money was spent on gross-out alien special effects – there was enough festering, oozing slime for 3 movies. I guess I was expecting something more “TROMA-y” and […]

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey

Synopsis: Our two heroes are destined for greatness – someday they will be remembered as the creators of modern civilization. A supervillain from the future creates evil robot versions of our heroes and sends them back in time to change the future. The robots kill our heroes, destroy their homes and attempt to rape and […]

Star Wars: Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith

How does George Lucas expect me to watch this movie with a straight face, when he includes lines like, “Hold me like you did by the lake on Naboo.”? Seriously, I was almost rolling around on the theater floor laughing after that horrid, horrid line. Who talks like that? Did his involvement with Howard the […]

Bloodsuckers

The Sci Fi Channel strikes again…with another cheesy B movie so bad it’s almost good. Note that I said almost. Yes, this time around, the Sci Fi premiere of the week is just plain bad. Jarringly bad. When I use the phrase “jarringly bad,” I am referring to the strange sensation of watching a movie […]

Coneheads

Although I didn’t see Coneheads when it first came out, I remember it well. Or rather, I remember how hard Subway whored itself out for the Coneheads movie. Consume mass quantities, indeed. Surprisingly, Coneheads is one of the better films spun off from an SNL skit. It’s not The Blues Brothers or Wayne’s World, but […]

Alien Apocalypse

Somehow, Bruce Campbell has ended up on the same boat as Corey Feldman and Vanessa Angel – the Sci Fi Channel stock player boat. I understand Bruce, I really do. You gotta make a living. And I know that your mug has amazing value in the sci fi world – why give up and guest […]

Vampirella

My husband and I have a contest of sorts going – nothing official, but from time to time, we record movies on cable for later viewing. The theme lately has been ‘who can find the worst possible movie to force the other to sit through.’ Although he had recently become the front runner by choosing […]

Jason X

You know, it’s really sad when a movie has to stoop to ripping off the plot of a Leprechaun flick, namely Leprechaun 4: In Space. Yes, Jason Voorhees is treading on territory that has already been explored by the Leprechaun. How sad is that? Couldn’t they come up with anything better than that for Jason’s […]

Bad Taste

New Zealand is beautiful. I’d want to live there some day, if it weren’t for Russell Crowe and all the zombies, deranged muppets, murderers, ghosts, hobbits…and ALIENS! Peter Jackson’s first film seems at first to be a traditional tale of alien invasion. Turns out that the aliens are harvesting humans to sell in their outer […]
