Review: The Worlds End

This is the second of five films that fellow contributor Jeremy Shaw challenged me to watch and review. I have chosen not to watch The Worlds End because I have grown tired of the formula. Ten years ago I loved Shaun of the Dead, and two years later I loved Hot Fuzz. Then I moved on. A few years went by and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost [...]

Review: Grave Encounters

A few days ago Jeremy Shaw and myself challenged each other to watch 5 films that we have not watched yet. All of the films that I was challenged to watch were purposely left off of my ques, however today I began my challenge. I began with Grave Encounters. I was no doubt challenged to watch this because I loath found footage films. [...]

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

(Click to see .gif of the James Bond title card. Makes me that happy that I can type that)   Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is completely ridiculous, much more so than the five movies that preceded it, and is better off for it. The movie starts with Jason Voorhees being brought back to life like Frankenstein’s monster after a [...]

Movie Challenge to Jeremy

I have been challenged by Jeremy to watch and review 5 movies that I have not watched yet. On this list are movies that he enjoyed and that I have chosen not to watch. With the exception of “You’re Next” I have actively avoided watching these movies. I remember years ago telling Jeremy that I would watch “American [...]

Freddy Krueger Stick-Up

While traveling the hallowed halls of the Steel City Con I saw this and I feel in love immediately. Though I didn’t bring little Freddy home with me on that first night, I did pay for it in another way. I couldn’t sleep. I kept tossing and turning, thinking about what I missed. Freddy Krueger legitimately haunted my dreams! [...]

Movie Challenge to Andrew

We’ve been kicking around this idea and what a better time to throw it out there than on Labor Day weekend? Plenty of laying about and movie watching to be had. The goal of this is to get us out of our comfort zones of movie watching and force each other to watch things we would NEVER watch on our own. Broaden horizons and inflict [...]

Topps Real Movie Giant Pin-Up

I really enjoy trading cards and the like for old movies. At the recent steel city con I spent way to much money on these worthless cards, but this is no card. It is a mini movie poster. Look at this selection you could end up with Now, I consider getting a Blue Lagoon or Grease an outright fucking scam. You know what everybody wants, [...]

Book vs The Movie: The Town

  I began this feature with Jaws. Ultimately I liked the book a lot, but I loved the film. Spielbergs classic took the win. This time we look at The Town. Adapted for screen by Ben Affleck and starring the man himself alongside Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively and Jon Hamm. I have always been a fan of Ben Affleck. There was a running gag [...]

Comic Review: Road Rage

I picked this up while at the Steel City Convention from a seller who was unloading smaller titles for $2 each. I ended up buying close to one copy of each being sold just to buy them, but this one I picked out first. I have always been a huge fan of Stephen King and Richard Matheson. In my opinion they set a standard in horror and [...]

The Rise and Fall of How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother was destined to be a success. It came at just the right time that sitcoms were looking to be a dying breed of entertainment. There wasn’t much competition and they had made some really wise casting decisions. Alyson Hannigan was a big name in TV after a long run on a the highly successful and very popular Buff [...]
