Moonbase is an entertaining but very overlooked action sci-fi movie from the late ’90s. The movie is cheesy, but it’s the good kind of cheese.

Cecil reviews one of the most notorious intentionally “bad” films to come along in a while, and takes a look at the company behind it.
This week a little something different. Just a few clips from some classic B movies that I think are pretty hilarious. Enjoy.
Cecil takes an in-depth look at the hype surrounding the original Blair Witch Project, which then leads into a review of its much misunderstood sequel. Both films are great in their own way, but unfortunately some studio meddling severely messed up Blair Witch 2. This is another episode in Cecil’s “Exploring” series, which is a serious look at certain films that deserve more recognition.
Working overtime on a new episode that is requiring a ton of additional work. So in the meantime, here is another wave of Netflix instant recommendations. It will be worth it though, the new one is…
An excellent supernatural revenge flick that was evidently built around a Dodge Inceptor, one of the coolest cars ever. An amazing cast of rising stars including Charlie Sheen, Sherilyn Fenn, and Randy Quaid, and an awesome soundtrack help to make this a big cult favorite.
It’s William Shatner, Ernest Borgnine, Tom Skerritt, and John Travolta in a dark, satanic movie with an ending that you have to see to believe.
Another round of cool flicks currently on Netflix Instant.
Cecil goes back to horror with Death Spa AKA Witch Bitch, a blood soaked tribute to the glorious health spa fad of the ’80s!
Cecil reviews yet another in a long line of awesome post-apocalyptic action flicks!
Cecil reviews Ring of Steel, a fun, lighthearted look at sword-fighting combat and kidnapping, starring Robert Chapin, Carol Alt, and Joe Don Baker.
In this very special episode, Obscurus Lupa joins Cecil to take a look at the bizarre 1988 action/black comedy Traxx, starring middle square on the bottom row Shadoe Stevens, and substitute Chrissy Snow substitute Priscilla Barnes.
At long last, Cecil finally reviews the Roger Corman-produced sword and sorcery film Deathstalker, starring Rick Hill as a barbarian hero who sexes up all the ladies, including the likes of Barbi Benton and Lana Clarkson.
The summer always seems to be the best time for action movies. Here’s another wave of Netflix instant movies, all that have an element of action in them. Enjoy!
Cecil does something way out of the ordinary for the last week of Mainstream May! Prom may be a Disney film, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a charming little drama/comedy. If you like movies like She’s All That, you really should give this one a chance.
It’s another entry in Cecil’s more serious “Exploring” series, as he takes a deeper look into the Chernobyl disaster and how it influenced the horror film Chernobyl Diaries. Six young tourists take an “extreme tour” of Pripyat, Ukraine, the abandoned city near the Chernobyl reactor, and as you might expect, things don’t end well for them.
Mainstream May for Cecil continues with I Am Number Four, a movie adapted from a book series that unfortunately was dismissed as another Twilight knockoff. While there is a teen romance and superpowers, the film is fast-paced entertainment and not the dull mess that the Twilight movies ended up as.
The first movie from Priest director Scott Stewart. It’s an interesting take on the apocalypse, with lots of action and Paul Bettany once again kicking ass.
