Are we doomed as a species? Sometimes, because of all the hatred in the world, and the fact that the president has turned the protection of our environment over to corrupt corporations…I feel we are already circling the drain.

I’ll be reviewing two amazing films that show the better side of us. Continue reading

As a blogger and writer, I have had the great opportunity of reviewing films, books, and TV shows. I owe most of this to Andy Burns of Biff Bam Pop who encouraged me to seek out the crème of the crop in pop culture. One of the people who I had the pleasure of interviewing many times was Jeremiah Kipp. Whenever Jeremiah completes another fantastic film, I get watch it. Today I am doing a review of his short film, Lost and Found. Continue reading

Insomnia allows me more opportunities to see films that I’d normally miss with my busy schedule. My insomnia is not that I can’t fall asleep or stay asleep…my insomnia happens because the dead like to visit me at 3:00 a.m. in the morning. Luckily for me, the dead tried to keep their visits short, but once awake, I seldom fall back to sleep and thus the latest recap of films. Continue reading

I am a connoisseur of ridiculous movies, and if they’re bad, I’ll watch them. I do my own version of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 on these films, sans the robots. I guess this love for senseless movies comes from my dad. I thought I’d seen it all after watching “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” but there is always something much worse around the bend. Grab yourself a glazed donut, and meet me after the jump for my review of “Attack of the Killer Donuts” Continue reading
