VIDEO: Wild Wild West (1999)

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.

VIDEO: Pink Lady's Great Motion Picture (1978) / Japanese Spider-Man (1978)

Mr. Mendo brings us twice the insanity from 1978 Japan: First up, it's the one and only movie starring singing duo Pink Lady, where they help an alien creature escape the circus, and teleport back to the Old West. After that, it's the Japanese Spider-Man, who gets his powers from a guy from the planet Spider, along with his very own giant robot sidekick!

VIDEO: Beauty and the Beast (1991)

It’s the first episode of Stuff You Like, where redheaded fangirl Sursum Ursa waxes enthusiastic about movies, TV shows, and anything else that comes to mind! She kicks things off with Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Ursa really, really loves this film. Seriously. It’s quite sweet. Join her for songs, sarcasm, recurring motifs and character development. Belle meets Beast. Story arc ensues.

VIDEO: Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991)

Join the Fear Fan as he takes on Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, the sixth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Although it's been smooth sailing so far, with five good-to-decent entries, things are about to get much, much worse for the Fear Fan as he enters a world of terrible humor, bad acting, Roseanne and Tom Arnold cameos, cartoon sound effects, and a retcon so awful that it could disrupt the very fabric of the space time continuum!

VIDEO: Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

Despite the title, this isn't just a goofy romp with guys in clown costumes. An incredible amount of detail was put into this movie, from the amazing Klown makeup to a lot of little touches that only add to the film's cleverness. And above all, the way they played this insane concept completely straight makes this one to watch.

VIDEO: The Golden Compass (2007)

Ryan hosts another episode of the Movie Skewer to look at The Golden Compass, based on a novel near and dear to him. New Line scrubbed away the book’s anti-Christian themes when they adapted it into a movie, along with all traces of anything dark or disturbing. Watch as Ryan examines the end result: a bland movie-by-committee where nothing is at stake.

VIDEO: Catwoman (2004)

Cecil looks at Catwoman, starring Halle Berry as a cosmetics company employee who undergoes basically the same origin as Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns and becomes a superhero! Many consider this to be a strong contender for worst comic book movie ever made, but in this episode, Cecil explains why he genuinely loves Catwoman.

VIDEO: The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)

In this episode, Mr. Mendo goes to where few reviewers have gone and lived to tell about it, taking on The Beast of Yucca Flats, also known by its alternate title, Holy God, When Will It End?!? Unlike the other two films directed by Coleman Francis, this one’s got a sci-fi angle, where wrestler Tor Johnson survives an A-bomb test and becomes a mutant killer. But never fear, because it still has all the pointlessness and incompetence you've come to know and love from ol’ Coleman!

VIDEO: Batman Returns (1992)

Join Mr. Mendo and special guest Sofie Liv as they take on Tim Burton’s Batman Returns! The two Joel Schumacher-directed Batman films have been thoroughly dissected on this website, but is it possible that Tim Burton’s entries in the franchise were just as silly and nonsensical? Mendo and Sofie find out!

VIDEO: Santa with Muscles (1996)

It’s an Agony Booth Christmas Special as Cecil watches Santa with Muscles, starring Hulk Hogan playing against type as a rich buffoon, who falls down a trash chute and starts believing he's Santa Claus. He decides to help out some hapless orphans (among them, Mila Kunis) in danger of having their home demolished by evil germophobe Ed Begley, Jr. A mainstay of the IMDb’s Bottom 100 list for over a decade, is it possible Cecil enjoyed this one? Watch and find out!

VIDEO: Fear (1996)

In this episode, Cecil watches Fear, starring Reese Witherspoon as Nicole, a young girl stalked by her psycho ex-boyfriend Mark Wahlberg. Despite the pedestrian plot, the movie is wall-to-wall wackiness, thanks mostly to Wahlberg giving a hilariously over-the-top performance. Watch as Marky Mark finger-bangs Reese Witherspoon on a roller coaster! Watch as he gives himself a NICOLE 4 EVA tattoo with a ballpoint pen! And in the end, nature will take its course... so let me in the fucking house!

VIDEO: Tangled (2010)

It’s the debut of Red Suitcase Adventures, where your host Sofie Liv explores both the good and bad in popular films!

In the first episode, Sofie digs into the global phenomenon that is Disney, and looks at their recent attempts to get back to basics by releasing new old-school material, the latest of which is the 2010 fairy tale story Tangled.

VIDEO: Antichrist (2009)

“Chaos reigns as Mr. Mendo takes on Lars Von Trier's Antichrist, with the help of a very special guest, the Lecher Bitch herself, Diamanda Hagan! Watch as a grieving couple retreats to their cabin in the woods, in the movie that shocked Cannes with graphic depictions of genital mutilation, hardcore sex, talking foxes, and naked Willem Dafoe!”

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

“Fear Fan looks at the fifth installment in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, where Alice (one of the survivors of Part 4) learns that Freddy wants to return to the real world by invading the subconscious of her unborn baby. Witness Freddy’s nun-rape origins, a nerd getting terrorized inside a comic book, death by overeating, and a special appearance by Baby Freddy!”

VIDEO: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

Michael A. Novelli steps up to host the Movie Skewer and take over our coverage of the Twilight Saga: the continuing misadventures of a vacant, passive high school girl, the creepy vampire who controls her, and the werewolf/rapist-in-training who comes between them! In the third installment, Bella and Edward are engaged, which pisses off Jacob, while Victoria organizes an army of “newborn” vampires to kill Bella and get revenge on Edward. So yeah, pretty much the same plot as New Moon, only this time they pay Bryce Dallas Howard to stand around and do nothing.”

VIDEO: Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011)

“‘80s pop princesses Debbie Gibson and Tiffany are down in the ‘Everglades’, trying to out-bitch each other by creating giant pythons and alligators. Eventually, the two middle-aged teen queens put their differences aside to save Miami from a reptile apocalypse, in this amazing sci-fi-horror-action comedy that manages to completely fail in four genres at once!”
