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 »
Welp…I’m gonna go kill myself.
Since most dopes think this is a sequel/remake, I’m not as bothered as I should be (mostly due to the fact that I have a brain in my head and know my Carpenter movies).

That’s right folks, it was 20 years ago today that Canadian animator/maniac John Kricfalusi warped the minds of 10-12 year olds across the globe.

But if it wasn’t for the disturbing nonsensical chaos that Ren & Stimpy provided, I probably wouldn’t be the jolly ole Viking that I am today. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s going to be hard for them to top T2, but if you ask me this T-X looks to be one bad ass mother eff.
“Macho Man” Randy Savage: Speaking from the Heart
Remembering things that half the world forgot is one of my many mutant powers (being able to spot a female nipple in one frame of a movie is another one). Friends contact me at all hours of the night when they get stuck trying to remember something from their child hood, and 90% of the time I have the answer. It’s that fiendish 10% that gets under my skin. Every now and then my brain only shows me a few images of things that I should know instantly. That REEEALLY pisses me off. But I’m a very patient man. I know that if I wait long enough (and drink enough booze) the veil will be lifted and the knowledge will be mine. Today’s “Throwback” took me over 20 damn years, mostly due to a word that will forever haunt me…..PHOTON. Read the rest of this entry »
