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!
Mystery Madness
Hosted by: Full of Questions
Mysteries are awesome! And who's better suited to examine the wonderful, the terrible, and the adequate of the movie mystery genre than a teenager with nerdy glasses and substandard editing software? ...Many people, probably, but enjoy the show anyway!
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

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!

Planet Terror (2007)
Text Article | Movie Review

“I wonder if it ever crossed Rodriguez’s mind that the grainy film and ‘missing reel’ scenes of such movies were not put in there intentionally.”

  Posted April 16, 2015 by Ivan K
Boyhood (2014)
Text Article | Movie Review

“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”

  Posted April 14, 2015 by Jonathan Campbell
Skyfall (2012)
Text Article | Movie Review

“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”

Cute High Earth Defense Club Love!: Where the magical girls are boys
Text Article | Series Review

“This magical girl anime is different from all the others, in that there are no girls in it.”

Comedy is offensive: A defense of Trevor Noah
Text Article

“It’s not even than people are really offended that Trevor Noah made jokes about Jews. They’re offended that Trevor Noah isn’t Jessica Williams.”

Better Call Saul: So, that was season one...
Text Article | TV Season Review

“Odds are, we’re going to be waiting at least three years or so before any of this matters.”

  Posted April 7, 2015 by Steve Birkett
Insomnia (2002)
Text Article | Movie Review

Insomnia isn’t perhaps the movie many hoped for following Memento; It’s a pretty low-key, minor effort compared to the complex, large-scale films Nolan would go on to make.”

The Flash’s sexist “don’t tell the girlfriend” rule
Text Article

“Every man in Iris’s life is lying to her. Her boyfriend, her best friend, and her father. This is beyond mere protectiveness: this is patronizing mistrust.”

  Posted April 3, 2015 by Ivan K
Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014)
Text Article | Movie Review

“Birdman may not be everything it’s been hyped to be, and it may not even be remembered as groundbreaking cinema—mostly because it’s not.”

  Posted April 2, 2015 by Joel Schlosberg
The video game movie James Cameron needs to make
Text Article

“Who better to become the Richard Donner of video game movies than the guy whose Aliens is pretty much a 3-D shooter video game in movie form, before the genre came into existence?”

Star Trek (TAS) “The Lorelei Signal”
Text Article | TV Recap

“It looks like the guy who cleans the Enterprise toilets has the week off, so congratulations, Uhura, you are now in charge!”

  Posted March 30, 2015 by Chelsey McQuitty
The Giver (2014)
Text Article | Movie Review

“There are times when it feels like the characters in The Giver are really just living in a slightly more authoritarian Disneyworld.”

  Posted March 27, 2015 by Hex
Meghan Trainor’s “Dear Future Husband” is not sexist
Text Article | Music Review

“All of this sounds like a lot, but it really isn’t. Most of what she outlines boils down to ‘be active and engaged in our relationship and I will love you.’”

Why long-awaited sequels are never that good
Text Article

“If you’ve been waiting decades for the return of your favorite franchises, there’s a good chance you’ll be pleased by what’s coming in the next few years. But there’s a much better chance you won’t, because it’s all going to be terrible.”

  Posted March 24, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
When Reading Rainbow went behind the scenes of Star Trek: The Next Generation
Text Article | TV Recap

“Unfortunately, we’re not going to find out how they did the saucer separation trick, or how they made that guy’s head explode in ‘Conspiracy’, or anything else cool that happened in the first season of TNG.”

DC’s Convergence re-relaunch: Top 5 titles to look forward to
Text Article

“DC is knuckling down and trying to do this thing right: some books are getting new number ones, almost all are getting new creative teams, and a bunch of new characters are being given a chance at ongoing title success.”

How The Killing Joke ruined Batgirl
Text Article

“Choosing such a horrifying image as a celebration is in incredibly poor taste. It comes across as a glorification of Batgirl’s humiliation and degradation.”

  Posted March 19, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
The Star Trek: The Next Generation/Webster crossover is totally real
Text Article | TV Recap

“Hearing a constant laugh track on the Enterprise-D bridge is distinctly surreal. Someone really should take season two of TNG and add a laugh track just to see if it improves things.”

  Posted March 17, 2015 by Chelsey McQuitty
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)
Text Article | Movie Review

“I would say this movie contains no actual dialogue; just endless action-movie quips.”

  Posted March 16, 2015 by Hex
Pretty Deadly
Text Article | Comic Book Review

“Since Image Comics recently announced the production of a second arc, I made it a point to give it a try. The verdict? I have no idea how to feel. My brain is screaming ‘status code: 400’.”
