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

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

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!

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.”

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.”

  Posted July 15, 2015 by Rob Kirchgassner
Hollow Man (2000)
Text Article | Movie Review

“Basically The Invisible Man redone as a slasher film, containing all the stupidity that this genre (unfairly or not) is associated with.”

Star Trek (TAS) “The Practical Joker”

Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 3 of 6)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“Was this another scene specifically written so as to avoid a potential lawsuit? Does Eon hold the copyright on interesting gadgets?”

  Posted June 23, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 2 of 6)

  Posted June 18, 2015 by Jonathan Campbell
Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 1 of 3)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“Despite the epic length, most of the cast will turn out to have existed to explore ideas or play second fiddle to the father/daughter relationship.”

  Posted June 17, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 1 of 6)
Text Article | Movie Recap

“It’s a bit like if Christopher Nolan made Batman Begins and decided to cast Adam West.”
