Video Show: The Blockbuster Chick
Deep in the heart of a quiet town in Scotland, the Blockbuster Chick dwells. Her purpose? To tackle the big name box office hits that should’ve never been green-lit in the first place—The movies that get a huge build-up, only to fall flat on opening weekend. Come watch as an adventurous Scottish lassie reviews them all (give or take a few)!
The Blockbuster Chick looks at a film that really makes her want to erase the memory of her watching it! So sit back, relax, and enjoy her take on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
You’ve probably been wondering where the hell the Blockbuster Chick’s been! Well, this review of Cars 2 requested by Suzie’s fan U.N. Owen will answer all of your questions.
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.
It’s now Day Four of the Blockbuster Chick’s 5 Days of Christmas Specials. Only one more to go after this! For this Christmas Eve special, sit back, relax, and get cozy with a random cat to enjoy A Garfield Christmas!
‘Ello and welcome to Day Three of Blockbuster Chick’s 5 Days of Christmas Specials! Today’s review is of a British classic, a stop-motion animated special starring
Rudolph’s lazy, overweight son Robbie the Reindeer: Hooves of Fire!
It’s Day Two of the Blockbuster Chick’s Christmas specials, and as promised, she’s examining the Hanna-Barbera classic (yes, it is a classic, apparently) Christmas Comes to Pac-Land, a holiday special based on the Saturday morning Pac-Man animated series.
The Blockbuster Chick is taking part in another Red Ribbon Reviewers Month by looking at Christmas specials! She’s starting things off with a look at the Disney classic Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too! Enjoy!
The Ghost of Reviewers Past brings us a special Christmas presentation from the Blockbuster Chick! In this episode, Suzie’s heart grows three sizes as she reviews the Chuck Jones-directed TV special How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, starring Boris Karloff as the narrator and the voice of the Grinch.
In Baz Luhrmann’s Pearl Harbor, Nicole Kidman is a British aristocrat who inherits a cattle ranch in pre-World War II Australia, and Hugh Jackman is the rancher who helps her drive her cattle across the outback. Spoiler alert: They fall in love. Also, they adopt a half-white/half-Aboriginal boy who can do magic, apparently, and arrive just in time to be caught in a Japanese sneak attack.
In Steven Spielberg’s overlong, needlessly complicated adaption of a Philip K. Dick short story, the Couch Jumper (AKA Tom Cruise) plays a “precrime” detective who stops murders before they happen with the help of blind, androgynous “precogs” who can see the future.
Unfortunately, Suzie’s been sentenced to watch the 1987 live-action Masters of the Universe movie, starring Dolph Lundgren, Courteney Cox, Principal Strickland, Tom Paris, and Richard Nixon as Skeletor. Enjoy!
A force subtly known as the Great Evil threatens the earth, so it’s up to 23rd century cab driver Bruce Willis to bring together four element stones and Milla Jovovich (as the titular Fifth Element) to unleash a Divine Light to stop the Evil. Will they succeed, or be defeated by Gary Oldman’s awful (southern?) accent?
Essentially a 100-minute forced meme, the movie stars Samuel L. Jackson as an FBI agent protecting a key witness on a flight to L.A. to testify against the mob. To rub the guy out, the bad guys release dozens of angry snakes on his plane, which is surely the dumbest airplane-related scheme to take out a witness since Airport ’79.
Pierce Brosnan as James Bond has to thwart the diabolical plans of a media tycoon who’s hell-bent on… getting broadcasting rights in China. Along the way, Bond gets the help of Michelle Yeoh as the standard “ass kicking female sidekick”, and sleeps with Teri Hatcher playing the standard “bad guy’s wife who has a complicated past with 007”.
The Blockbuster Chick joins the site with a review of the 1999 dud based on the ’60s TV show, starring Will Smith and Kevin Kline as two 1860s government agents brought together by the president to foil a diabolical plot by a legless Kenneth Branagh.
