So, go. Go-go!
Yes, you read that right: Sharktopus Versus Pteracuda, a love story involving two genetically bred monsters who... well, go read my review on Sci-Fi & Scary if you want to know the rest. No-no, really, go read it. I swear it's entertaining. I snark a lot. I mean, A LOT.
So, go. Go-go!
So, I'm making up for my overly long Bad Movie Review hiatus by offering up a double-whammy of awfulness this month. My latest piece de resistance? Oh, nothing special. Just a low budget SyFy original called Ice Road Terror was that was FREAKING AMAZING!
Seriously! This movie was cheaply made, super cheesy and included a random sampling of supporting actors from Battlestar Galactica. In short, it was terrible. AND I LOVE IT!
By now you know the drill: Hit the pic below for the full text of my love-fest review, then go watch this crap-a-doodle-doo and let me know what you think!
I know, I know, I know--it's been a while since I've posted anything on my blog. I'm terrible--I KNOW! That said, I'm back! And I've got yet another bad, bad, lusciously and deliciously bad movie review to share. This time I went with a classic I'm guessing most of you are familiar with: Tremors, starring that most Footloose of Fakin' Bacons, Kevin Bacon.
Interested? Just click the pic below and you'll be instantly transported to the magic land of words and swearing wherein I spill my unfiltered thoughts, feelings and opinions on this Hercules of Bad Moviedom.
Ready, set, snark!
I know it's been a while, but I'm back with another Bad Movie Review! And since you guys seem to like to see me suffer (to date, Anaconda 3 is by far my most popular review) I watched another big 'ol piece 'o crap, just for you. It's called Whiteout and it stars Kate Beckinsale as a US Marshal trying to solve a murder in Antarctica. Sounds great on the surface, right? Yeah, it's not.
Hit the screen cap below to review the full review! Many thanks to Lilyn G. at SciFiAndScary for once again letting me clogging up her wonderful blog with my snarky rantings about these movies.
So, this one might get me tarred and feathered. Die Hard is a classic, and near and dear to a lot of peoples' hearts. Personally, I love the movie--I love almost all the movies I review for SciFiAndScary--but, well...it's got problems. Lots of them. Don't get me wrong, that doesn't affect my enjoyment. In fact, one of the reasons I love this movie so much is that it is terribly, horribly flawed. And over-the-top. And full of explosions. So hit the link and read my ramblings. But please remember that I quibble out of love. :)
Bad Movie Review & Recap: Die Hard
I'm baaaacckk! Yup, it's that time again: time for another bad movie review. This one's a doozy: Anaconda 3 (that's right, not 1, not 2, I jumped all the way to 3, staring David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff.
If you're new to the site, I'll mention that I do this on a monthly (give or take) basis, in conjunction with SciFiAndScary. For me, it's a ton of fun--I get to watch a 'so bad it's good' movie and then ramble on in prose about it--and SciFiAndScary gets some regular content. Win-win! So, if you're looking for some light entertainment, or maybe a suggestion for a bad movie to watch on a rainy Sunday, hit the pic below and you'll be whisked away to some rambly goodness.
You know the drill: I watch spec fic movies that are just shy of cheesy and blog about how much I love them. IT'S THE GREATEST NON-PAYING GIG EVER!
For this edition, I reviewed Escape from New York--a 1980s sci-fi classic and inspiration for the lead character (Snake) in the Metal Gear video games. Wanna know more or share in the Escape from New York love? Well, all ya gotta do is click on the link above or the pic below and you'll be transported via the interwebs to the full review in all its glory.
You'd be surprised how hard it is to pick a movie for these reviews. I mean, there are so many to choose from and how is a girl to decide? Well, in this case, I cheated. I went back and forth, and round and round, before eventually settling on reviewing a Van Damme movie--c'mon! They're classic! How could I not?--but even then, I was still left with a whole bunch of choices. I mean, it's Van Damme! Every movie he did was awesomely bad!
You see my dilemma.
So, how did I resolve this little issue, you ask? Well, in a fit of brilliance, I outsourced the decision and asked Twitter. And that, my friends, is how I came to rewatch and review that nugget of nuggety sci-fi goodness, Timecop, staring the one and only Kicks Van Damme.
You can find the full review at SciFi & Scary. And if you've got a suggestion for my next review, drop it in the comments.
Recently I managed to con...err, I mean work my way into a side gig writing movie reviews for Sci-Fi And Scary, with an emphasis on bad movies. As in, movies so bad they're actually good... in a Mystery Science Theater kind of way. For my first installment, I focused on Lake Placid , but this last round, I went for a classic: Flash Gordon. Haven't seen it? You're missing out. This movie is so 1980s. So glitzy and over the top--a tour de force of daring do and cheese.
I love it. I honestly do. And once you read this review, I hope you will to. So, head on over to Sci-Fi And Scary and check it out. Just click on the little picture below and it'll take you right to the post. Oh! And if you have suggestions for my next bad movie review, drop them in the comments. I've got a few ideas, but I'm always open to reader requests.
...I love bad movies. Always have, always will. I love them because they're bad movies--funny, ridiculous and often very, very full of themselves. And I'm not alone. Lilyn G. (of www.scifiandscary.com fame) and I got to chatting on Twitter one day about SyFy Original movies and when she mentioned an idea she had to start a blog post series on bad movies, I jumped at the chance to be involved. The hard part was narrowing the vast pantheon of bad movies I like down to just one to blog about.

She currently lives in West Virginia with her husband and four (yes, four) cats, all of whom provide inspiration for her stories, whether they know it or not.
