Author: Dr. Winston O'Boogie

The Box (2009)

“There’s not much to Richard Matheson’s original short story, but a movie version certainly could have expanded upon the premise and become a smart, taut conspiracy thriller... in the hands of the right screenwriter and director. Instead, the story was adapted by writer-director Richard Kelly.”

VIDEO: Star Trek Nemesis (2002)

On the eve of the Star Trek franchise heading into darkness, Dr. O'Boogie looks back at the TNG cast's final outing Star Trek Nemesis, which somehow became the most reviled entry in the series despite there being a few other Star Trek movies that are at least as dumb. But it's a shameless ripoff of Wrath of Khan starring an up and coming British actor, and who would possibly want to see that?

VIDEO: Primer (2004)

We mark the release of Upstream Color by looking at writer-director Shane Carruth's debut Primer, the dense and confusing story of two scientists who accidentally create a time machine in their garage. Dr. O'Boogie takes a deeper look at the twisted tale of multiple timelines that sent scores of people to the internet desperately searching for an explanation of the plot.

VIDEO: Catfish (2010)

Inspired by the recent Manti Te'o story, Dr. O'Boogie reviews the documentary Catfish, about a guy named Nev who falls for a girl over Facebook who's not quite what she seems. The Doctor sounds off on whether this "documentary" is real or fake, and finally reveals to the world what he really and truly looks like!

VIDEO: Wonder Woman (1974)

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.

VIDEO: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 (2011)

Stephenie Meyer's novel gets split into two movies to extract an additional billion dollars from Twi-hards who line up for these things no matter how tedious or repulsive they get. And this one is certainly repulsive, as Bella gets pregnant with a half-vampire baby who treats her womb like a bouncy castle, Edward performs a Cesarean with his teeth, and Jacob embarks on an 18 year quest to groom his future wife.

VIDEO: Quantum of Solace (2008)

Daniel Craig and the Bond filmmakers silenced the critics with Casino Royale, then got them all shooting off their mouths again with this entry, thanks to an unfinished screenplay, a boring villain, and some of the most confusing editing ever seen in the franchise. Luckily, we're here to make sense of it all for you.

VIDEO: High School Musical 2 (2007)

Dr. O'Boogie dares to follow up his legendary recap of High School Musical, the Disney Channel Original Movie where Zac What's-his-face and Vanessa Something-or-other joined forces to save their school from being torn down, or something. Look, it's been four years since that recap. Cut him some slack, okay?

An Interview with Michelle Goodeve, Degrassi's Ms. Avery

“Earlier this year, I spoke to Dan Woods, Mr. Raditch himself, and through that connection I got the opportunity to interview the other much-beloved teacher from the series. I’m talking of course about Michelle Goodeve, who played Ms. Karen Avery for four seasons on Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High. What you may not know is that Michelle’s been busy ever since as a producer, screenwriter, and story editor, writing episodes of several Canadian TV shows. But if that’s not enough to pique your interest, Michelle is also a licensed pilot, with a special passion for flying antique airplanes. Yes, in real life, Ms. Avery flies airplanes. Seriously!”

RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space LIVE! Nashville 2009 (2010)

“Not only is RiffTrax popular enough to produce real DVDs, but they’ve also earned the clout to put on live shows out in the real world, giving their fans a rare excuse to actually leave their homes. In 2009, a live event was staged in Nashville, Tennessee and broadcast to theaters all across the country, featuring the RiffTraxers (RiffTraxians?) taking on one of the most infamous ‘bad’ movies of all time, Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. And as you may have already guessed from the title, this DVD is a document of that event.”

Family Ties “A, My Name is Alex” (part 5 of 5)

“I don’t think anyone under the age of 25 can fully appreciate how much hype and anticipation there was surrounding this episode when it originally aired. ‘A, My Name is Alex’ was going to break genre boundaries. ‘A, My Name is Alex’ was going to smash the fourth wall. ‘A, My Name is Alex’ was going to give us all totally new insights into the nature of existence itself. ‘A, My Name is Alex’ would be all that, and oh yes, it would also be the bag of chips.”
