I think we all know the number one movie, but let's discuss last year's animated bottom dwellers.
While watching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, I noticed that I was feeling something that I was unaccustomed to experiencing while watching a Star Wars movie. That feeling was boredom, which is an understandably unusual reaction to movies famous for space battles, blaster shootouts, and lightsaber duels.
Cecil investigates the story behind the horror comedy The Stuff. Enough is never enough!
History time, kids! Once upon a time, in a magical land of wealth and opportunity commonly known as the US of A lived a humble country lawyer named Huey P. Long. The nation had just emerged as one of the victors of a bloody World War and was going through an exciting period of technological progress and prosperity, blissfully unaware of the looming Wall Street crash and the ensuing Great Depression.
Welcome to the Agony Booth's first ever Bad Superhero Movie Showdown, in which we compare two justifiably reviled superhero movies to definitively answer the question which one fails the most.
How is it one of the most insane years in recent memory managed to have mostly great animated movies?
I've rewatched the four major sequels that were released in 2015 and 2016 to see if I was right about the nature of releasing a sequel to a property that's been dormant for almost a decade.
I was left with the realization that beyond all the “clever” dialogue and manic pace, Sherlock simply is not as good as people think. In fact, Zero Effect did it better in every way.
Even if I could joke, the chilling Cold War nuclear specter evoked by The Dead Zone has put me off it for now. I find it hard to be jocular while thinking about the fact that in several weeks, an irascible simpleton will have control over the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet.
Joey rants about why he can't stand the Best Animated Feature category at the Oscars.
January is upon us, which as we all know is the time of year reserved for that curious mix of Oscar bait finally going wide, obvious duds that got pushed back from summertime/holiday releases, and the rare diamond in the rough taking advantage of a total lack of competition. In other words, expect Rogue One to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future.
The Fear Fan is officially finished clowning around as he takes on Amusement, the pseudo-anthology that the website Bloody Disgusting labeled a disaster.
In this episode, the Horror Guru reviews Brain Damage, written/directed by Frank Henenlotter and starring Rick Hearst, Gordon MacDonald, Jennifer Lowry, and John Zacherle.
Because it’s the holidays and a slow time of year around these parts, I figured I’d have a little fun and take a break from contemplating the Grim Reaper’s current mass celebrity killing spree and post this term paper I wrote back in college. Yes, even before this blog existed, and in fact before any blog existed, and even before the internet, I was writing long-winded essays about movies.
Let's get down to business... to perform our designated gender role. HUH!
Cecil takes a look at the MST3k favorite insane Christmas movie from 1959, Santa Claus, directed by René Cardona.
Lex Luthor is a rather unique example in this series of Movies that Predicted Trump, in that he actually is based on Trump.
Count Jackula rails against Rankin/Bass's 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.
Maybe Trump watched A Face in the Crowd at some point and took that lesson to heart, or maybe he just genuinely returns the love of his audience in a way that Lonesome Rhodes was too cynical and self-aware to be capable of.
Feeling like the end of days is coming? Or perhaps you’re just hoping they are? If so, you might enjoy The 5th Wave, which takes viewers on a post-apocalyptic trip involving aliens, child soldiers, and teenage love triangles.
