Furious 7 (2015)

“You ever heard the saying, the enemy of my enemy is my friend?” “I don’t got friends. I got family.” Does anyone remember the first movie in this series? The Fast and the Furious? It tells the story of an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a group of street racer thugs who steal dvd players from […]

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

Before it was a movie, or even a book for that matter, Fifty Shades of Grey was posted online by author E L James as an internet fan fiction. Using the internet handle ‘Snowqueen’s Icedragon,’  James was originally writing her kinky story using characters from The Twilight Saga books. Halfway through writing, she decided to change […]

After Last Season (2009)

DISCLAIMER: Heed these words. Heed them well: Don’t ever watch this movie.  INT. AFTER LAST SEASON SET – DAY Script in hand, Actor JASON KULAS approaches writer/director MARK REGION. JASON Hey, Mark, you mind if I run something by you?  MARK Anytime.  JASON I’m just wondering if we can fill in the other side of […]

Super Mario Brothers (1993)

They aren’t even wearing suspenders. When I think of Super Mario Brothers, I picture the mushroom kingdom; a lush, colourful video game world populated by cute characters and evil turtles. I think of two plumber brothers with thick Italian accents riding dinosaurs with stretchy tongues. A princess in distress. Giant angry bullets. I don’t think […]

Mr. B Natural (1957)

(S)he’s your worst nightmare. Next to Coily, Mr. B Natural has to ‘B’ one of the most odd characters ever featured in a classic Mystery Science Theatre 3000 short. This short will always resonate with me because it was my first introduction to the show. Interestingly, the film Joel and the ‘bots watch on MST3K is […]

Aussie Park Boyz: The Next Chapter (2011)

With a subtitle as creative as The Next Chapter, it’s safe to set your expectations very, very low for this one. Aussie Park Boyz: The Next Chapter is the sequel to Aussie Park Boyz (2004), which I have never seen, but now plan to. While there are fleeting moments that clearly refer to the first film, […]

The Littlest Hobo – Pilot (1979)

There’s a voice, that keeps on callin’ me… First of all, let me clarify that I love The Littlest Hobo. While this blog is usually dedicated to ridiculing cheesy television shows and movies, I want it stated off the top that even though I make fun of it, I think the show has a lot of heart. […]

The Wicker Man (2006)

Any movie Nicolas Cage touches instantly becomes a timeless work of art. He has a knack for interpreting scenes the wrong way, and in doing so inadvertently improves the projects he signs on to. From Face/Off to Vampire’s Kiss, the campy films he gets involved in are always immensely fun to watch. I do think he’s an […]

Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959)

Plan 9 From Outer Space has been hailed as one of the most legendary bad movies of its era, perhaps even of all time. Director Ed Wood’s most famous b-movie has entered the pop culture lexicon in such a way that most everyone has at least heard the title. Personally, I don’t get the hype. […]

A Case of Spring Fever (1940)

Noooo Springs!!! Bwee – boo! Have you ever wondered what the world would be like without springs? Wonder no further. A Case of Spring Fever is one of the classic short films featured on Mystery Science Theatre 3000 that enforces a timeless lesson: be careful what you wish for. When Gilbert Everyman is stuck fixing his couch […]
