Couple things on the wrap-up this year: first I can say that in 2015 I watched an even 70 films. By no means am I a “power-watcher” of movies, quality over quantity, or said another way: I have a day job. And kids. And I’m usually tired by the time I get a chance. BeforeContinue reading “2015 Wrap-Up: My Top Five List”

I Heart Mega Sharks
What can I say? I’m a sucker for this pretty tired formula involving ridiculously large fish attacking ridiculously long passed their sell-by date pop culture icons in ridiculously silly ways. Lest you think I’ve jettisoned all standards, I’ll have you know I’m a purist: sharks must only have one head, not three; must beContinue reading “I Heart Mega Sharks”
Worse Than Manos? Exploring the Lowest Rated Horror Movies
So, I’ll cop to enjoying–actually enjoying–watching horribly made, low-budget, inept, misconceived, and altogether stupid horror movies. It’s the main reason I’m a terrible at reviewing movies–I can always suspend disbelief and see the good in even the silliest films. So, trolling through the IMDB for some new material to get into, I started to keep tabsContinue reading “Worse Than Manos? Exploring the Lowest Rated Horror Movies”
Grindhouse Brackets 5: On to the Sweet 16!
At this point, we’ve eliminated half of the films we started with, and have arrived at our Sweet 16! But before we get to that story, I have to go over this story–how Match-Up 4 shook out. This Story Match-up 4 had about half the votes of 3, which is fine, and here’s how it all wentContinue reading “Grindhouse Brackets 5: On to the Sweet 16!”

In case you forgot who’s who, I’ve embedded the film trailers below. Tweet me or comment on this post by a week from today (1Continue reading “Grindhouse Brackets–Top 32”
Link Dump: Mid-Late October
It’s time for another good-sized roundup of good movie reviews from the tweeps. Love how you folks are keeping exploitation and B-movies in circulation. With a good-sized H/T to Cultural Gutter, I saw this interesting post on TV criticism vs. TV recapping, among other things. I liked it because it gives voice to what I’m tryingContinue reading “Link Dump: Mid-Late October”
The Last 5 Films I’ve Seen #1
When I started this blog, I promised myself to not let this become yet another movie review blog. There are some great review blogs out there, and I doubt I can add much to individual films that people would want to read. Especially when folks like Dave, Shah and the folks at Anti-Film School are already doingContinue reading “The Last 5 Films I’ve Seen #1”
