VIDEO: Mamma Mia! (2008)

“Here we go again with another Thoroughly Manly Musical! In this episode, Super trooper Stan takes a chance on the ABBA musical nobody asked for, and finds something that was clearly only made for money, money, money. Will Stan request an SOS, or will the experience bring out his inner dancing queen? Who cares? After spending this much time coming up with stupid ABBA references, we’re pretty sure he’s going to kill himself anyway.”

VIDEO: Monsters (2010)

“The Fear Fan goes indie with Monsters, a relatively low budget monster movie that managed to get some decent reviews when it was first released. Fear Fan went into this one with high expectations, but does it live up to them? To put it simply: Hell no.”

VIDEO: The A-Team “The Heart of Rock N' Roll”

“Really, it’s just a flimsy excuse to build an episode around lengthy performances of the greatest hits of Rick James, Isaac Hayes, James Taylor, and Huey Lewis and the News. Take out all the songs, and ‘Heart of Rock and Roll’ is a 12 minute episode, which is exactly what Mendo has made for you!”

VIDEO: Mister T “Mission of Mercy”

“We’ve already covered eight episodes of Mister T on this site, but none of them approach the insanity of ‘Mission of Mercy’, where T and the gang travel to Africa to recover a stolen food shipment meant for starving children. Lives will be saved, tears will be shed, and desert creatures will be eaten, as Mr. T punches famine right in the face!”

VIDEO: Never Say Never Again (1983)

“Mr. Mendo once again explores the world of subpar James Bond films with Never Say Never Again, featuring Sean Connery returning to the role of 007 after a 12 year absence. In the movie, Blofeld threatens to detonate two stolen nuclear warheads unless SPECTRE’s demands are met, which eventually leads to a massive underwater battle. And if that synopsis sounds familiar, it’s because Never Say Never Again was legally required to have the exact same plot as Thunderball.”

VIDEO: Captain America (1990)

“In this episode, Fear Fan leaves behind the world of horror movies to examine the awful 1990 direct-to-video Albert Pyun-directed Captain America, starring Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty, and J.D. Salinger’s son as Cap. Our own Stan Ferguson previously covered the 1979 Reb Brown version, but this one is much worse, despite being a lot more faithful to the comics.”

VIDEO: Captain America (1979)

“They don’t get much cheesier or TV movie-er than 1979’s Captain America, starring Reb ‘Big McLargeHuge’ Brown as the Sentinel of Liberty. There’s no Red Skull or HYDRA or Cap getting entombed in a block of ice in this movie, just a big doof with overinflated biceps riding his motorcycle and battling Wink Martindale’s evil twin.”

VIDEO: Tommy (1975)

“Stan looks at Tommy, the 1975 musical based on the Who’s rock opera about a deaf, dumb blind kid who sure plays a mean pinball. Directed by Ken Russell (who apparently hates epileptics), the movie stars Ann-Margret (who shows off some impressive eye acting), a creepy, tone-deaf Oliver Reed, and Roger Daltrey as Tommy, who’s got a fever, and the only cure is more pinball!”

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)

“The Fear Fan takes on 1985’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge! Some people say it’s the worst entry in the series, others say it’s the gayest entry in any horror series. But no matter how you slice it, this movie has one hell of a reputation. Can the Fear Fan find any redeeming qualities among a sea of naked man ass, killer parakeets, and dance moves bad enough to peel paint? Watch and find out!”

VIDEO: The Batman “Q&A”

“In this episode, Ryan covers The Batman, a lighter, younger, more merchandise-oriented incarnation of the Caped Crusader, featuring vastly ‘reimagined’ versions of Batman’s villains. In the season one episode ‘Q&A’, Batman faces off against the Cluemaster, a subpar Riddler clone who’s been redesigned to be even more useless than he was in the comics.”

VIDEO: Leprechaun 6: Back 2 tha Hood (2003)

“In this episode, Mr. Mendo gets his Irish on, and joins forces with special guest the Cinema Snob to take on the sixth (yes, the sixth) film in the Leprechaun series. Warwick Davis is the Leprechaun, who returns to “tha hood” a year after rapping with Ice-T, to slowly pick off a random group of ghetto denizens (including Tangi Miller, Laz Alonso, Page Kennedy, and the inimitable Sticky Fingaz) who make the tragic mistake of stealing his pot o’ gold!”

VIDEO: Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)

“Everybody’s favorite kaiju does battle with Mechagodzilla, a robot Godzilla clone created by the Simians, an ape-like race from the Third Planet from the Black Hole who have come to conquer Earth, starting with Okinawa. And yes, that’s really the plot. Come for the giant monsters kicking ass, stay for the musical numbers!”

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

“Welcome to the first episode of a brand new series, where your host Fear Fan explores the best and worst horror films ever made! In this episode, take a trip into the demented mind of Wes Craven as we watch his greatest creation: 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Heather Langenkamp, Johnny Depp, John Saxon, and Robert Englund as the original Freddy Krueger!”

VIDEO: Forrest Gump (1994)

“In this episode, Mr. Mendo lists the 7 worst things about Forrest Gump, the tale of a simpleminded buffoon who somehow lucks into having the greatest life ever, while everyone around him suffers and dies horribly. Join Mendo as he rights some wrongs, solves the Kennedy assassination, exposes the fascist ideology of Tom Hanks, reveals what’s in Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase, and takes a cue from the film itself by raping as many classic pop songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s as humanly possible.”

VIDEO: The Haunting in Connecticut (2009)

“Allegedly based on a true story (it’s not), the movie tells the tale of a family who moves into a creepy house, only to discover it’s really a former funeral parlor haunted by demons. Yes, that old story. No, seriously, it’s the oldest story ever told. Watch Mendo and Fear Fan explain how this hodgepodge of 20 better horror films might be the blandest movie ever made.”

VIDEO: Ishtar (1987)

“Thrill to the song stylings of Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty, as they perform classics like ‘Love in My Will’, ‘Software’, ‘Wardrobe of Love’, and ‘How Big Am I?’ And yes, these are the highlights of the movie.”

VIDEO: The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988)

“This time around, Stan looks at the TV movie that reunited the stars of a classic ‘70s action series, The Incredible Hulk Returns. And since the notion of Bill Bixby turning into a bodybuilder covered in green body paint isn’t ridiculous enough, they added the Norse god of thunder! Yes, Marvel’s own Thor makes a special appearance here, along with his life partner Donald Blake, and since Kenneth Branagh’s Thor comes out this summer, what better time to look at Thor’s only other live-action appearance?”
