A few night back my friend Tara had a bunch of friends come over for a bad movie night. In the past she has screened Xanadu, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Harts Club Band, but on this night she was to screen the feature film of The Spice Girls called Spice World. I remember this not being good when I first saw it. But after a few years past I really enjoyed it this time around. Plus my musical tastes have changed a lot since I was 15 so that might something to do with it as well. Although I have always been a fan of their hit Wannabe and think their music video helped inspire Russian Ark and Birdman or The unexpected virtue of ignorance because it was all done in one take or made to look like it was. You can read my full list over on That Moment In below. Continue reading

In this video essay from Dorkly on Youtube. Tony Wilson explains why the Spider-Man movies directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire are the best adaptations of the famous web crawler. I loved Into the Spiderverse and Tom Holland’s version of the character is a lot of fun, but they never showed the struggle of the character like Raimi’s versions had. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.
Have you ever wondered if a superhero has ever wrongly accused someone of a crime they may or may haven’t done. It has to happen, right. No one can always be 100 percent sure that they are doing the right thing all the time. I’m sure Batman has his doubts at times, but than again maybe not. Maybe this ideal of a perfect society is what fuels many of these individuals who put the law into their own hands.
People like Pep(Simon Cassidy) in the wonderful new movie Small Town Hero are nothing new. Being fed up with crime in his town. He decides to do something about it and stop it. At first it started with a bunch of kids breaking a store’s window and other small crimes. His methods were a bit unorthodox but hey, they get the help get the job done. Continue reading

I was recently a guest on Dork Points to watch the sci-fi feature Beta Test. It’s about a game tester who unknowingly begins controlling a real person to commit crimes for an evil corporation. It was a blast hanging out with my friends Nicole, Ron, and Ron’s dad to watch this flick and do a MST3K style commentary but I think a few of us were enjoying it more than we should. Watch the series of videos below and be sure to like and subscribe to their channel. Continue reading

When you mention the name Harmony Korine. Right away there will be many people there that will avoid this movie at all cost. The Director of Spring Breakers and Gummo certainly has a distinct style and the man has his fans but certainly a lot of haters as well. His new movie The Beach Bum will be no different and I won’t fault anyone for not liking this flick. But I can’t lie and say I did not have fun with this one, folks. Does it have problems. Oh Yes. Yes it does, but it’s still very funny. Matthew McConaughey shines in the lead role as Moondog and the supporting cast including Snoop Dog, Isla Fisher, Martin Lawrence, Jimmy Buffett and more are all very good.

Hello gang how are ya?
Well I have been kind of shitty this past week. I lost my voice over the weekend so I had to postpone recording a recent episode of Cinema Recall. It’s been several days and I still haven’t gotten it back yet. Couldn’t even go to work because my job requires the use of my voice. So I thought this would be a good time to comment on a few trailers and short films I saw. Continue reading

Only a company like Disney could sell you something that you have already seen before. With the recent trailers for the live action versions of Aladdin and The Lion King trending on social media. I have to ask myself, why? Not why are they doing it. That parts easy, it’s the money. Why are so many people fascinated with watching these updates of movies we have seen. Continue reading
