Well I’ll be damned. They actually went through with it. They’ve gone and remade yet another movie from our childhood. I thought this one was just going to be another rumor that would fizzle out. Nope. This is for real, folks. ROBOCOP got remade….and we have the trailer. Read the rest of this entry »
There are certain movies that one can watch countless times and never get sick of. Everybody has their list. I keep mine in a little box next to my bed. Half the fun of re-watching these movies isn’t just in the recitation of every line. No, sir. The bulk of the enjoyment comes when you notice something brand new in a movie you’ve seen more times than your I.Q. score. This very thing happened to me quite recently.

(the tagline says: “Battlezone: EARTH”…like it matters)
Wow. This is a first. I have never in my life come across a movie that is such a blatant ripoff. Really? Alien Vs. Hunter? They couldn’t even come up with a vaguely different name? We’re witnessing a new form of lazy which requires a whole new word. I mean, who in the hell did they think they were fooling? They almost got me. Almost. Thankfully, they have a crackerjack team of writers over at Netflix. What they came up with for a synopsis is pure gold: Read the rest of this entry »
The late 80’s and early 90’s were a great time to be a kid. Computer generated effects were in their infancy, the Nintendo Entertainment System was at its peak, and many awesomely-bad sci-fi movies were being pumped out like no tomorrow. My favorite brand of those films were the ones based around video games that tried to kill the players for real. Just think about it. What if Nintendo had the cojones to instal crazy military programing into Robbie The Robot? Gyromite would’ve been a hell of a lot more difficult, I tell ya what. I’ll do you one better. What if Q from Star Trek: TNG was responsible for programing and designing the robot? We’d be in for a world of shit. EVOLVER is about that very thing. Read the rest of this entry »
There really isn’t all that much to do when you’re working the graveyard shift. Reading books and channel surfing tends to play a huge part in the down-time. But ever since Netflix became available to me, via my phone and other media, I’ve been privy to the seemingly endless supply of mediocre movies they’ve acquired. Tonight I took the Netflix wheel o’ wonders for a spin and was rewarded with indifference. Ladies and gentlemen, here are my thoughts on House at the End of the Street. Read the rest of this entry »
Let’s face it, vampires have been done to death these days. Everything from turning them into sparkly sissies, giving them an HBO series, and having them go toe-to-toe with a former president has been churned out of tinsel-town lately. Frankly, I’m sick of it. They’re everywhere these days and they totally suck…and not in the awesome way. I was beginning to lose hope that there would never be a truly great vampire movie again. DAYBREAKERS changed all that. Read the rest of this entry »
Welp…I’m gonna go kill myself.
