Strays (1991)

Directed by John McPherson

Written by Shaun Cassidy

Run Time: 82 (dull) minutes

Tagline: They have nine lives…We only have one!

Strays is yet another half-brained attempt at a “nature-gone-bad” film, the kind that inspires Netflix to constantly spam my inbox with “Hi Dennis! Here’s a movie that you […]

First Thoughts: Baby Driver

OK, I just got around to seeing “Baby Driver” last night, rented it on iTunes…am I the last person on Earth to see this? Probably.

After a fairly fast-moving 2 hours or so, I admit that I liked it. I didn’t love it, no, and no, I probably won’t ever watch […]

Written by Oren Uziel

Run Time: 102 minutes

 

This is Grumpy McFaultfinder, back for another swipe at Netflix, because good grief they are putting out some crappy sci-fi lately. First Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, and now The Cloverfield Paradox. (Their series Mindhunter, however, is brilliant. […]

Frogs (1972)

Directed by George McCowan

Run Time: 91 minutes

Frogs might be loosely considered an “eco-horror” disaster film. It can be considered as having the most misleading promotional poster of all time.

Here, take a good look:

With that in mind, allow me to point out a couple of things […]

First Thoughts: Arrival

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

I always love the sense of awe and dread whenever I see giant space ships silently hovering over the Earth, humans helpless to stop them, unable to communicate with them, at the mercy of inhuman alien minds…and…

Run Time: 93 (70’s filled) minutes

The Dragon’s Challenge (alternatively titled “Missing in Action”) was released way back in 1979 as a made-for-TV movie comprising of 2 previously unreleased Spider-Man episodes. It’s a colorful story full of 70’s swagger, but unfortunately it’s […]

In the Year 2889 (1967)

Written by Harold Hoffman

Directed by Larry Buchanan

Run Time: 80 minutes

Bravely reviewed by Karl Hoegle

Reviewer’s note: With a paltry $20,000 budget, AIP gave the stalwart Buchanan a title that was already registered (In the Year 2889) and a copy of Roger Corman’s 1955 “The Day the World […]

Darth Cripple

What with The Force Awakens and Rogue One, the Star Wars universe is again invading planet earth! A life-long fan who saw the Star Wars movie 12 times when it came out in 1977, I think this is great. BUT, we also have a problem, a very, very serious problem, which comes from […]

Written by H. Perry Horton

Killdozer (1974)

Written by Theodore Sturgen, Ed MacKillop

Directed by Jerry London

Run Time: 73 minutes

Any movie involving killer construction equipment must open in outer space, naturally, and this movie is no exception. It just makes sense, right? Scary music plays while a blue styrofoam asteroid hurtles towards Earth. Again, it just […]
