Review: Norm of the North: King Sized Adventure

For the past week, I've been down in the swamplands of Georgia hanging out with friends and having a complete blast at an event called HvZ Endwar. Imagine tag with Nerf Blasters, zombies, and tons of music and you'll have a pretty solid ide...

Review: Billionaire Boys Club

Rarely do I get excited about a film because of the people in it, especially one's "Based on a True Story" I've never heard of. One reason I go to the movies is to forget these people are actors and get engrossed by their performances. But ...

Review: Cartel 2045

Putting a direct to video grindhouse-esque movie up for review is a bit of a conundrum because you know what you are getting into when you press play, and it's not going to be "good" per se. But what happens when the movie is so bad that it...

The Jurassic Dead has trailer, zero originality

If you've ever wondered what you'd get if Jurassic World met The Walking Dead and they had a love child born of some sort of maniacal orgy with Duke Nukem, Resident Evil, The Toxic Avenger, and the special effects of Sharktopus, boy a...

Review: Terrordactyl

With a clever pun served on a silver platter, Terrordactyl presents itself as a straight to video B-movie masterpiece ready to absorb two hours of your Saturday night. Hoping that prehistoric mayhem might be delivered with heaping extras of...

Review: Hard Sell

I want to say nice things about this film. That's the feeling I'm left with as I'm watching it. I believe I understand where the Writer/Director, Sean Nalaboff, is coming from. Hard Sell is "a coming-of-age tale ... [about] a high scho...

First trailer for DC's direct to video Batman vs. Robin

Ever since the animated Justice League specials committed to the New 52 continuity (after The Flashpoint Paradox), they haven't been very good. I don't know what's to blame for that either. Is it the comics themselves? Is it the loss of th...

First teaser for Jingle All the Way 2

You know how Larry the Cable Guy rolls his eyes at the end of the teaser? That's pretty much how I'm feeling right now. Thank Jebus it's only thirty seconds long...and direct to DVD. At least it's easier to avoid that way. Produced by WWE ...

Trailer: A Christmas Story 2

Here's a trailer for the razzafrackin' direct-to-video sequel to A Christmas Story. Looks like Santa Claus has left a steaming Blitzen-sized deuce in humanity's collective stocking. Behold the synopsis: Years after realizing his childhood...

First clip from Dark Knight Returns isn't full of Miller

Other than a beefier looking Batman, an iconic shot from the comic, and a bit of dialogue that most will recognize from that other DKR, this short clip doesn't look like something that's an adaptation of the bats*** crazy genius Frank Mill...

Trailer: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1

I somehow missed that DC's newest animated outing, an adaptation of Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns was coming in two parts. Considering that means, assuming an average Blu-ray price is $25, the whole story has a $50 ch...

Trailer: Hostel Part III

The "most terrifying franchise" returns...direct to video. Just like any good horror sequel should! Showcasing a surprising lack of actual hostels, the third part in Eli Roth's schlop-fest finds some unfortunate souls in Vegas being tortur...

Trailer: Planes

My wife isn't here to spread her Cars hate along, so I'll have to fill in. Planes is a direct-to-video Cars spin-off featuring, you guessed it, airplanes. There's nothing terribly offensive about this trailer, though th...
