Robot Monster Review

January 16, 2013 // 5 Comments

I… I don’t even know where to begin. I could feel the brain cells dying. Is Robot Monster worthy of this series? Yes, because it is a classic. Made in 1953, Robot Monster is a classic example of a bad movie. Not just bad, but downright horrible. Why was this atrocity even filmed, let alone showed to anyone? Who would pay to see this garbage, [...]

Stargate SG1 – Season 2 Review

January 15, 2013 // 0 Comments

The second season of SG-1 began with a great episode (“The Serpent’s Liar”) that wrapped up the cliffhanger from the first season. Unfortunately, the episodes that followed were disappointing. They weren’t bad, but the next three episodes (“In The Line of Duty,” “Prisoners,” and “The Gamekeeper”) just weren’t exciting. Most [...]

I love Stargate the movie and of course saw it before there was the thought of a show (the movie released in 1994), but the movie really has nothing on the series.

K-PAX Review

May 6, 2012 // 0 Comments

Kevin Spacey shows why he is the man in this adaptation of the 1995 book by Charles Brewer. Spacey stars in this drama as Prot, a mental institution patient who claims to be a visitor from the planet K-Pax. Prot falls under the care of Dr. Mark Powell (Jeff Bridges), who immediately dismisses “Prot” as delusional. Throughout the course of the [...]

Terminator Salvation Review

April 18, 2011 // 0 Comments

There are a few odds and ends I should get out of the way before I begin this review. First off you should know that the version of the film I am reviewing is the directors cut release. I did not see the original theatrical cut, and thus cannot really say a whole lot about the differences here and whatnot, so please forgive me in that regards. [...]
