Top Five Favorite Films From 1980

Flash Gordon

I’m a big list guy. If you’ve read my stuff here you know I love putting them together and debating them. I’m starting a new, hopefully regular, series here on the site where I’ll be looking at my favorite films through the years. I got the idea for this when one of my favorite podcasts StarJoes did the same thing. I’m what they call a “child of the 80’s” as I was born in 1976 so … Continue reading

Freddy’s Back… Sort Of… “A Nightmare On Elm Street”

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

The wife isn’t a huge horror movie fan, but she’ll indulge me once a year on Halloween.  Last year we watched Psycho and the previous year we checked out the original Halloween.  I’d had the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street sitting on my shelf for quite a few months now and I figured Halloween night was a good opportunity to check it out. In a word… meh. First off, the flick starts in … Continue reading

The Last Couple Of Flicks

The King Of Kong (2007)

It’s been a while since I’ve done any movie reviews.  Hell it’s been a while since I’ve done any posting at all, but that’s another story.  Since my last review, I’ve seen a couple of movies and I figured I’d put them in one nice little post.  Enjoy! The King Of Kong – A Fistful Of Quarters I actually saw this a while ago and just never got around to writing a post about it … Continue reading

Hockey Masks, Razor Blades & Impalements… Oh My

Scream

The fall seems to be synonymous with horror movies.  It might be due to a little flick called Halloween.  In any case I’m a HUGE fan of the genre (as evidenced by the fact that Pip and I started a horror movie review website called ScareTissue).  For my money I’d pick a horror/slasher flick any day of the week.  Sure they’re campy, gory and go for the surprise factor but I absolutely LOVE them.  For … Continue reading

Jason Is Back On ‘Friday The 13th’

Friday The 13th (2009)

In 1980 the face of horror movies changed.  We were introduced to Camp Crystal Lake and a killer named Jason Voorhees (yes, I know that Jason’s mother was the killer in the original… stick with me).  From 1980 to 2003, we were given 11 sequels that took Jason from Crystal Lake to deep space,  New York City and even to Hell.  After nearly 30 years it was time for this franchise to get rebooted… apparently. … Continue reading

Is My Childhood Being Raped?

Child Of The 80's

I was born in the mid 70’s. It was before we had hundreds of channels on TV and it was before there was a blockbuster a week in the theaters.  There are comic, cartoon and movie properties that are so ingrained into my being that they are a part of me… and they’re all being redone for the sake of the almighty dollar. Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Halloween, Friday The 13th, Tron… I could … Continue reading

Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

MegaForce Movie Poster

My favorite podcast, The Geek Savants recently did a show about guilty pleasure movies (I.E. bad movies that you love and will watch every time you run across them).  It was a great episode and really got me to thinking about some of my favorites.  That said, here’s my list! HONORABLE MENTIONS Legally Blonde (2001) – Reese Witherspoon plays Elle Woods, a stuck up blond girl from out California that follows her boyfriend to Harvard … Continue reading

‘Saw’ – Horror Hasn’t Looked So Good In Years

Saw (2004)

Now before you get all on my case about this movie review being 5 years too late let me give you a bit of background… I don’t watch nearly as many movies as I used to.  At least I don’t watch them right when they come out.  The wife and I haven’t seen a movie in the last 15 years that we both like so it’s very rare that we rent anything.  My kids are … Continue reading
