It's the Cheap-Arse Film Review, where a young(ish) man finds out if it's possible to live the life of a cinephile super-nerd on the strictest budget possible.

Hosted by: Michael A. Novelli
Need a healthy dose of cynicism from a guy whose face you can barely see? Then Mr. Mendo’s your man! Whether a movie suffers from Hype Backlash, Intellectual Dishonesty, or is just Complete Shit, Mr. Mendo is there. Mr. Mendo wasn‘t raised in this country, so he takes nothing for granted: if something ain‘t right, he’ll nose it out. So join him as he takes on Oscar winners and legendary flops alike in front of a blanket suspended between his couch and recliner!
PGSM Summaries
Hosted by: Nycea
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (PGSM for short) is a hilarious live-action retelling of the Sailor Moon story. On this show, your host Nycea summarizes and riffs on this gloriously bad series—one episode at a time.
Reel vs. Reel
Hosted by: Animated Heroine
Animation isn't just for kids; it's also for adults who never learned how to grow up. In Reel vs. Reel, the Animated Heroine looks at two similar animated films to see which one comes out on top and why. Her love for good animated films is only matched by her cynicism towards the bad ones.
Stuff You Like
Hosted by: Sursum Ursa

Terror Obscura
Hosted by: Fear Fan
Terror Obscura is a show dedicated to exploring the best and worst horror films ever made.

Tom's Retrophilia

The Unusual Suspect
Hosted by: Unusual Suspect
The Unusual Suspect reviews popular movies, and tears 'em apart! They may be good, but no movie is perfect, and there's always things you may have overlooked and hadn't thought about. So join the Suspect as he exploits and ridicules the films you know and love. Just don't kill him for it!
What We Had to Watch
Hosted by: Il Neige
Il Neige is a smart-ass with a love-hate relationship with movies from the new millennium. Sure, reviews can be fun or cathartic, but there's also the risk of the occasional Twi-hard invasion or fireball to the face! ...That's how these things usually go, right? So join Il Neige as he braves the cinematic dangers that lie just beyond the fourth wall to critique the best and worst of 21st century filmmaking!

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
Text Article | Movie Review

“This film has an even more misleading title than Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.”

  Posted August 25, 2015 by Hex
Is Inception a rip-off of Paprika?
Text Article

“Cobbling together a new product from pieces of old ones is not ripping off per se, but it can be derivative.”

Skidoo (1968): the lost recap (part 1)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“At less than a minute in, this movie’s plot has ground to a halt, which is quite an accomplishment, considering it has no plot.”

  Posted August 20, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
Ishtar (1987): a recap (part 3)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“I can’t tell what’s funnier here, the random violence against women, or Lyle being a gay basher. Either way: comedy gold!”

  Posted August 19, 2015 by Hex
Armada (2015)
Text Article | Book Review

“Zack comes off as a nerd who won’t shut up for five minutes so the plot can progress. Mind you, this didn’t stop me from liking the book, but then again, I know I would do the exact same thing.”

The Delta Force (1986) and the 1980s Reaganian action film
Text Article | Movie Review

The Delta Force is so brazen in its jingoism, so earnest in its desire to entertain, and so unencumbered by aesthetic taste or good judgment that you can’t help but admire it.”

  Posted August 17, 2015 by Thomas Stockel
Star Trek (TAS) “The Slaver Weapon”
Text Article | TV Recap

“Aaaand it basically looks like a watermelon with a handle. I guess the Slavers took juicing very seriously. ”

  Posted August 13, 2015 by Staff Writer
Stargate Atlantis “Irresistible”
Text Article | TV Recap

“In this article (and in the article that will follow it), I plan to educate you on why the writers should have steered clear of another Felger-type writing misstep of ‘Avenger 2.0’-size proportions... and decided not to. Twice. Don’t these guys learn the first time?”

  Posted August 11, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
Ishtar (1987): a recap (part 2)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“Even putting aside the absurd notion of a presumably devout Muslim woman flashing her tits in public, I really can’t imagine who thought this was funny.”

7 suggestions for when Marvel gets the Fantastic Four back
Text Article

“Based on the critical reception for this movie, and how utterly unoriginal and forgettable it is, I would be appalled, aghast, and amazed if Fox didn’t finally surrender the rights back to its rightful owners.”

Kill James Bond
Text Article

“Daniel Craig’s Bond carries a considerably larger burden of expectations than his predecessors ever did. To that problem, I submit the following solution: Kill James Bond.”

  Posted August 5, 2015 by Steven Birkner
Deanna Troi’s role on Star Trek: The Next Generation: What’s so bad about a therapist on the bridge?
Text Article

“It’s been written that what dates Star Trek: The Next Generation as an ‘80s show more than anything is the presence of a therapist on the bridge. But what does that mean? Does it mean that therapy became chic in the ‘80s, but is going to fade in importance?”

  Posted August 3, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 6 of 6)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“All that’s left now is to quickly get to the obligatory big battle sequence where the movie throws as many guys with guns into the frame as possible, and they all stand around shooting at each other long enough for us to finally end this damn thing.”

  Posted July 30, 2015 by Chelsey McQuitty
Hollywoodland (2006)
Text Article | Movie Review

“Ultimately, Hollywoodland will probably only be remembered for the novelty of Ben Affleck playing Superman years before he played Batman.”

  Posted July 29, 2015 by Michael A. Novelli
Hulk Hogan’s an asshole (but he’s not the bad guy here)
Text Article

“I there’s been a huge outcry from the public, it hasn’t been anywhere near as visible as what’s been coming directly from WWE itself.”

  Posted July 27, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
Ishtar (1987): a recap (part 1)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“Fans of the movie (and yes, this movie does have fans) will tell you it’s actually an underappreciated gem. I’m here to tell you those people might be clinically insane.”

  Posted July 23, 2015 by Jonathan Campbell
Ant-Man (2015)
Text Article | Movie Review

“If you imagine the Marvel franchise as the movie equivalent of a TV series, then this is sort of like ending the season on a standalone episode after a big climatic two-parter, starring a character you’ve never heard of, in a story that means almost nothing to the larger plot.”

  Posted July 21, 2015 by Hex
Go Set a Watchman: Why it’s okay that Atticus Finch is racist
Text Article

“When Scout finds out that Atticus is human and flawed, her reaction is much like the fans who refuse to read the book: they can’t stomach it.”

  Posted July 20, 2015 by Jonathan Campbell
Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 3 of 3)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“For a film that talks about the importance of humanity and human survival, it shows shockingly little faith in it.”

  Posted July 17, 2015 by Staff Writer
Stargate SG-1 “Avenger 2.0”
Text Article | TV Recap

“While it isn’t the worst concept for an episode ever, it’s still not winning fan love, twelve years after it aired. Okay, so maybe some fans love it, but this fan cringes over the existence of it.”
