The Ides of March

Ok, life is really, really taking a lot of my time now, so spare time is very difficult to come by these days, so I’m thinking of doing some quick mini-reviews of a bunch of movies from my 50 Sci-Fi Classic DVD collection (Thanks, Karl!) in order to keep the proverbial ball rolling around this […]

Where to find crappy movies

Somebody wrote me and asked where they could buy a particular movie, so I thought I’d tell you where I get a lot of these movies:

#1) E-bay. You can find almost anything on Ebay. Since I live overseas I buy from Although I can’t always find exactly what I want, I can usually […]

Good memories…

I rewatched John Carpenter’s “The Thing” the other night and it brought back some good memories that I thought I’d share with you, the gentle reader.

You see, back in 1982 when I was a wee lad, my father dropped off my brother and I at the local cineplex theater in order to see […]

Have you seen this movie?

When I was living with my dad in Mpls back in the early 90’s we used to rent crappy videos from the local drugstore. (Yes, renting VHS tapes…man do I feel old). Anyway, I remember we came across this ‘bottom rack’ video that had a really murky cover and I think the title was “Things”. […]

Monster Shack and the Money Pit

For a while now our community has been planning to dig up and replace our neighborhood’s water lines. Uh, good. Right? So today they finally get out to our part of the ‘hood and we find out that there’s going to be about $4000 worth of digging that we’ll have to pay for out of […]

Alien director’s cut

I stumbled across a cheap Alien Quadrology boxed set while killing some time in a bookstore the other day. Very bare bones, but it does include the director’s cut versions of the movies, and what the heck, any movie fan worthy of their salt needs to have the Alien collection on their shelf. (At least […]
