Fantasy Football – Review

I remember when I was a kid and the one thing that thrilled me was watching those original Disney Channel movies. You know, like “The Thirteenth Year”, the one about the merman or my favorite at the time “The Luck of the Irish”, the basketball-playin’ leprechaun. Movies that just were as silly as humanly possible with none of the stigmas of a real movie so to speak. You just pressed “play” and your brain became a pulsating mush, leaving behind all rational thoughts. A sugar rush. That was my mindset. Continue reading Fantasy Football – Review

In the plethora of modern so-bad-it’s-good films, few have seen the massive success and notoriety as James Nguyen’s phenomenal Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010). A movie filled with all the cheesy romance and awful apocalyptic terror you can fathom, the earnestness and naivete artistry employed by Nguyen makes it forever enigmatic to what a cult movie can be. But is it possible to hit lighting … Continue reading ‘Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle’ Review: A PSA-Laden Romantic Thriller (Fantastic Fest 2022)

“The Amityville Horror” (1979) – [Movie Review]

This was a massive blind spot for me as a horror fan, so I decided to give this a watch. It’s the season after all. The granddaddy of haunted house flicks, the one from which the nectar is being sucked upon even to this day. Too bad this is not a good movie. Although it does have some fun sequences and a truly unhinged performance by Rod Sterling as a heart attack on legs. But we’ll get there.
