Here’s Cecil’s take on Judge Dredd, the 1995 movie adapted from a British comic, starring Sylvester Stallone, Armand Assante, Rob Schneider, and Diane Lane.
In 2010, a great action movie adaptation of a hit 1980s action TV show was panned by critics for a crime it didn’t commit. It promptly went to DVD, where it remained mostly forgotten. Today, still disliked by a majority of major film “critics”, it survives as a movie loved by true fans of action-adventure and comedy. If you never saw it, if you had only heard bad things, and if you didn’t know any better than to blindly trust the critics, maybe you should watch: The Cinema Slob’s review of The A-Team!
Join Sofie AKA the Scarlet Defender as she drags in asks the Film Renegado very nicely to do a crossover with her, and the two review Puss in Boots, starring Antonio Banderas as the swashbuckling kitty cat from the Shrek movies.
Josh gives his deranged take on the 1995 Sylvester Stallone movie Judge Dredd, where a British satirical take on fascist American cop movies gets turned into… a fascist American cop movie.
Brendan Fraser plays a cartoonist (basically, a thinly veiled takeoff on R. Crumb) who gets sent to the afterlife and/or Cool World while one of his creations, a cartoon monkey (voiced, oddly enough, by John Turturro) takes control of his comatose body and runs amok.
Mix one part Sandra Bullock, two parts the Dark Side of Makeovers, a couple of bleeding-uterus jokes, and a random quote from The Great Fitness Experiment. Stir well, and bake for 8:41. It’s Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous!
The cast has completely changed since the previous movies, with Jessica Alba as the spy kids’ mother, Community‘s Joel Mchale as a spy hunter, and the voice of Ricky Gervais giving a terrible performance as a robot dog. This movie stinks in every possible sense of the word.
Joshua returns with a review of the current release Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth in the shlocky but enjoyable zombie apocalypse series directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring his wife Milla Jovovich. This time, evil goes global! …Or not.
The Fear Fan is back with the last of his reviews of the Elm Street series! In this episode, see for yourself how a modern big-budget remake can somehow fail to be as technically proficient as a film made thirty years prior, and learn just why producer Michael Bay should stay the hell away from the world of horror movies.
Despite the title, there’s nothing funny about it. Batman bangs Catwoman, the Joker screws Batgirl (before shooting and crippling her), Nightwing does Poison Ivy, Zatanna [?] has sex with John Constantine [??] and there’s not the slightest trace of fun to be had. The Nolan films might take themselves too seriously, but why does the parody have to?
It’s the 1996 made for American TV movie Doctor Who, where Sylvester McCoy passes the sonic screwdriver to the next generation, namely the Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann. Also, Eric Roberts shows up to completely ruin the movie with his appearance as the dreaded Master.
What happens when you combine Sandra Bullock, Michael Caine, and William Shatner with pratfalls and lipstick? Well… Miss Congeniality, of course! Which obviously means a discussion on makeover narratives and the Pygmalion myth, with supporting materials provided by Trinny and Susannah and the Apostle Paul. Because, why not?
The Cinema Slob explores the film’s subtle social commentary, its heart-wrenching plea for acceptance of cross-species love, and of course, its genius twist ending.
A chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) gets dog-napped in Mexico in this Disney film about talking dogs that somehow attracted a decent cast, even though none of them can do much to save this movie.
In some ways, this movie could be classified as a Women in Prison revenge movie… except, there’s very little prison… and not too much revenge!
While a lot of movies might be pieces of crap thrown up on a screen, Doggy Poo takes it to the next (literal) level. It’s a 2003 stop-motion animated Korean short about mortality and the meaning of existence… starring a talking dog turd.
This time, Sofie chooses to focus on something good from the DC universe, as she watches the now legendary animated series Justice League, where Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, and the Flash all team up to fight the Body Snatchers and the machines out of War of the Worlds in the stunning three-part pilot episode, “Secret Origins”.
A couple of college students (Twilight‘s Ashley Greene, and some guy) perform an experiment that unleashes an evil supernatural presence. This inspires Count Jackula to hook Horror Guru up to a machine that makes all his fears a reality! Just like the way they don’t in the actual movie!
It’s time for Anarchy at the Movies, where your host Joshua the Anarchist looks at (relatively) new releases. In this installment, a great light has gone out in the universe: it’s the fans’ hopes for a good Green Lantern movie!
Cheapus dives headfirst into the cult sci-fi sex spoof Flesh Gordon, and its much lesser sequel. Featuring, amongst other things, laser-shooting nipples, adult babies (oh God…), some awesome stop-motion effects, some terrible acting, a giant gargoyle with the voice of a pickup artist, and a cameo by the Film Brain.
