Mortal Kombaaaaaaat! Cecil reviews one of the best examples of how to do a video game movie the right way.
The Cinema Slob is ready to rock (hah!) as he reviews The Scorpion King, a spin-off film from the popular Mummy franchise. Often looked down upon for simply being a cheap attempt to prove Dwayne Johnson could be believable as an action star, the Slob finds that there’s a lot more going on in this movie. And most of it involves a perpetually half-naked Kelly Hu.
Joey meets up with sports movie reviewer Iannone to watch The Greatest Game Ever Played, starring Shia LaBeouf as Francis Ouimet, who in 1913 became the first amateur golfer to ever win the U.S. Open.
It’s the Agony Booth debut of Reel vs. Reel, where your host the Animated Heroine looks at two similar animated films to see which one comes out on top and why! And like any reviewer who focuses on animation, she often delves into the world of Don Bluth. Here, she compares his first feature film, The Secret of NIMH, to his first successful feature film,
An American Tail, to see which one is the superior Bluth film.Reel vs. Reel
From out of Mendo’s misspent youth comes this review of the second (more fanservice-y) Power Rangers film, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie! And Mendo hopes you bloody well appreciate it, because just thinking about Power Rangers Turbo gives him hives! I mean, seriously, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie was bad enough, but now the Power Rangers are fighting evil with cars? It just doesn’t add up, man!
It’s Film Renegado’s second anniversary! And what better way to celebrate than with more Danny Trejo? This is… Machete!
It’s the debut episode of The DVD Shelf, where your host David Rose reveals, reviews, and recommends the movies you should have on your own DVD shelf! He takes a look at the Tim Burton film Ed Wood, starring Johnny Depp as one of the worst directors in history, and delves into Wood’s real life to see how it compares to Burton’s hilarious vision of the man.
Mendo reviews A Haunted House. Pretty straightforward, really. What? Not all of these intro paragraphs can be gems! Oh, wait, Mendo also debuts his new sunglasses in this video. That’s pretty noteworthy, I guess.
Last weekend at MAGFest, Mr. Mendo met up with our own Joey Tedesco, Joshua the Anarchist, and the Cinema Slob! They took time out from all the fun and frolic to watch and riff on one of the most popular movies in the history of the world: Rowdy Rathore. Not just the highest grossing Indian film in history, it’s also freaking insane!
Cecil kicks off 2013 with another video game adaptation! This time, it’s the Jean-Claude Van Damme classic Street Fighter, also starring Ming-Na Wen as Chun-Li, Kylie Minogue as Cammy, and Raul Julia as M. Bison in one of his final roles.
It’s the belated final episode of Time Travel Month! Phil Buni looks at Time Changer, a really poorly made Christian sci-fi film where a professor from 1890 gets in Captain Stubing’s time machine and travels to 2002. There, he’s horrified to discover that America is no longer the god-fearing country it never was. It’s hilariously awful!
Dr. O’Boogie intrudes on Sofie’s territory with his own review of the Wonder Woman pilot! No, not the one with Lynda Carter, or the one with Adrianne Palicki—this was the very first attempt to bring the Amazon Princess to life, starring future That’s Incredible host Cathy Lee Crosby as a blonde Wonder Woman with a lame costume and no powers, unless you count her amazing ability to always be on the phone.
It’s a Cartoon Palooza Slider, where Joey takes more in-depth looks at movies. In the first edition, it’s ParaNorman, one of Joey’s favorite animated films of the year. A small town is attacked by zombies, and their only hope is a misunderstood local boy named Norman who can talk to the dead.
Sofie reviews the Pixar film Brave, and by popular demand, she’s doing this review entirely in her native language (Danish) with English subtitles!
Count Jackula celebrates Christmas with a disturbing horror holiday movie from Finland! In Rare Exports, a young boy spies on a mining operation that unearths the real Santa Claus, who was locked in an ancient prison because he was murdering little kids for fun. Also in this episode: Jackula teaches special guest Mr. Mendo about the true nature of Santa Claus!
It’s time for a New Year’s Eve special! Mr. Mendo closes out the year with a double review of Les Misérables and Django Unchained! And as a cap-off, you’ll get an answer to the question we know is on your mind!
In this strange Planet of the Apes spoof, Misty Mundae plays an astronaut who crash lands on a planet and gets captured by intelligent apes who force her to make sexy time with Darian Caine… when they’re not singing, dancing, or rapping.
Joey looks at the Hanukkah musical comedy Eight Crazy Nights, the first animated feature starring Adam Sandler, of all people, and asks the age-old question: Does being able to do two impressions give you enough range to be considered a voice actor?
Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals! For the holidays, Suspect looks at the highest grossing Christmas movie ever, Home Alone, starring Macaulay Culkin as an eight year old left home alone who soon learns how to unleash brutal, near-lethal violence on Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.
Welcome to the last day of Suzie’s look at beloved Christmas Specials from years past. Today, she looks at a wonderful British classic: an animated adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s The Tailor of Gloucester done for the BBC series The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends.
