Import Review - My Stepmother Is An Alien

New Year, and time to branch out with import releases. To kick this off, we have the US Blu-Ray Arrow release of My Stepmother Is An Alien. Let's check out this 1980s classic comedy!

Short Review - The Critic

During the time I have been writing about movies, I have discovered that some of the most powerful films are shorts, and The Critic is one of those movies that most certainly packs a punch.

007 Shop Exclusive Solid Gold Zippo Lighter

Wow.

Sometimes there are some absolutely mind-blowing items made as collectibles for film fans...and this is truly something...

VOD Review - The Last Matinee

There's nothing quite like a good bit of horror...but do you know what even better? Non-English horror. I don't know what it is, but forgein horror just seems to tick all the boxes for me. I've always had a keen interest in foreign films, but horrors always seem to be that little bit extra, so when I got the chance to check out Spanish movie The Last Matinee (aka Al morir la matinée) I jumped at the chance!

Review - 8-Bit Christmas

Oh boy here we go, time to brace for the influx of Christmas movies. Yes my Hoopy Droogs, it is that most wonderful time of the year where people max out their credit cards to make themselves look good and kids are majorly disappointed because the present they got was the wrong colour...the first movie I'm reviewing for the season is Warner Bros' 8-Bit Christmas, so let's get the chest fires roasting over an open nut, crack open the eggnog & stuffing flavoured popcorn and settle down for a movie.

Interviews - Dale Resteghini and Lamar Seay

I saw a brilliant short called Cracka a few weeks ago and I thought it was absolutely amazing. The roles are completely reversed in this story of racism, where a white man is made to be a slave of a black community. A controversial and in-your-face short, but very well made and I recommend you go check it out.
I was able to catch up with Co-Owner and President of Vyre Network Lamar Seay and creator of Cracka Dale Resteghini about this powerfully thought-provoking film...

Quest For The WORST Movie #37 - Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins

When I was doing research for the 2021 Mortal Kombat (a great movie, although it could have been far better) I found out there was an animated prequel to the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie and I found it was one of the special features on the MK '95 Blu-Ray...my search was over...huzzah!
I pop the disc into my PC, settle down to watch something that I thought was going to be awesome, and a great piece of Mortal Kombat history.
Oh boy...

Interview - Weary Pines

Earlier this year while I was recovering in hospital from an abscess the size of a tennis ball I stumbled upon the score to In Search of Darkness by musicians Weary Pines. A group that has mostly done work in the horror genre with a massive 80s influence, their talent is incredible and the scores to In Search of Darkness Parts I and II are amazing pieces of work.
I was able to have a chat with Don and Jamie about music and what the future holds for Weary Pines, physical releases, and blaming others for your career...

Blu-Ray Review: Demonic

Has it REALLY been 5 years since Neil Blomkamp made a feature length movie? Wow, doesn't seem it. Well, here we have his latest offering, the movie Demonic, so let's check it out.

Defunct Format Review - Dark Water (UMD)

Yes, it's time for another strange and unusual format! This time I'm watching the movie Dark Water (the American remake) on Sony UMD....OK, let's get on with it, shall we?

Quest for the WORST Movie #10 -  Tusk

I was recently discussing bad movies, this very blog and my quest with some friends at a party. We discussed many bad movies (Birdemic was universally agreed to be truly awful on pretty much every level) and it was suggested that Tusk should be added to the list.

Quest For The WORST Movie #09 - Pet Semetary (1989)

I really like horror. I started reading horror books at a very early age and loved the writings of Herbert, Masterton and King among others so when I heard that Pet Sematary was being released in 1989 I had hopes up for a good movie.

Quest For The WORST Movie #08 - Monsturd

As my quest for the WORST movie ever continues…I have decided to pick Monsturd as the next contender. This dis-ass-ter movie is about a convict that falls into a sewer full of chemicals and becomes and half-man/half-turd monster than grabs people when they use the crapper.

Quest For The WORST Movie #07 – Fant4stic

It would appear that some comic book characters are instant gold when it comes to movies. There is a wealth of stories you can go through, and the characters are amazing and if they are done the right way you have a set of movies that are a gold mine. Look at examples like the original Superman movies, Deadpool, and The Dark Knight trilogy and you’ll see some amazing storytelling with some great characters.

With great regret, I have to inform you that Fantastic Four appears to be one of those franchises that has never been one of the good ones, and Fant4stic is proof of this.

Quest For The WORST Movie #06 – Birdemic Part 2: The Ressurection

I must be completely mad.
If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time then you should know that I really do not like the movie Birdemic and I’ve been looking for a movie that could be potentially worse. To date I have found nothing to beat it in any way.
Perhaps now I have found a contender….in the sequel.

Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle…ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?

In 2016, James Nguyen set up crowdfunding.
For a movie.
A sequel.
FOR BIRDEMIC!!

Quest for the WORST Movie #05 – Super Mario Bros.

Well, it was inevitable that this “gem” was going to turn up at one stage…and low and behold my eldest stepson suggested this one…so here goes and let’s get this out the way…oh, and thanks, Tiny!

Quest for WORST Movie #04 – A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) 

Yes, I know…it’s been a while since I’ve done anything on my quest to find a movie WORSE than Birdemic, I’ve been recovering from surgery and I’m finally back!! Hopefully I’ll get the quest back on track as well as doing various reviews…..and so without further delay here’s the fourth part of the quest, which has me watching the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street released in 2010

Quest For The WORST Movie #03 – Suicide Squad 

I used to be a fan of DC Comics and the movies…the 1989 Batman was awesome and one of the greatest action movies of my teens, and the movies that followed (barring Batman & Robin, which will be part of this quest at some stage…) were great, the Superman movies starring Christopher Reeve are amazing…..but then came along the likes of Superman Returns and Man of Steel (yet more contenders for worst movie) and I went off DC movies…..and now, I’m looking at Suicide Squad.

Quest For The WORST Movie #02 – Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

OK, let's get started with the Quest! First up, Martha is my Mom's Name Too!: The Movie Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Quest For The WORST Movie #01 -  Birdemic: Shock And Terror

I must be absolutely mental….
I have decided that if I am to attempt to find a movie worse than Birdemic: Shock and Terror then I should rewatch it and refresh my memory of how it really is….perhaps I am wrong and I need to give it some slack? 

Is there a movie that’s WORSE than Birdemic? 

I was on Facebook recently when I saw a post asking about what the worst movie ever made is, and everyone who knows me knows that the worst movie I have ever seen is Birdemic. The acting is awful, the script is awful and the CGI is so bad that 8 bit sprites from a Sega Master System would be better! I have only ever seen this movie once and I never….EVER…want to see this again. It’s so bad that my wife watched the Cinema Sins for this and said that she wanted her 20 minutes back and it topped Eragon which was her worst ever movie!

However, like Qui-Gon Jinn says “There’s always a bigger fish” so I am now on a quest to see if there is a movie that’s worse than Birdemic….

Is This The Worst Movie Ever Made?

I have actually found a movie I almost could not watch the whole way through, and considering some of the truly awful movies I have watched this really must be quite the achievement for a bad movie.
