Film Title

Overlord (2018)

Synopsis

WW2 was horrible enough, but behind the lines there is even more horror to behold.



Cast

Jovan Adepo
Wyatt Russell
Mathilde Olliver
Pialou Asbaek
John Magaro
Iain De Caestecker

OVERLORD Overlord should get an Academy Award for blowing up stuff “real good.” This includes planes, vehicles, buildings, people, and the (relatively restrained) budget. BAD ROBOT is one of the producers, and that usually means quality. The movie begins promisingly with a World War 2 shot that rivals TORA! TORA! TORA! (1970) in terms of […]

Worst Gaming Genre Examples in Modern History

One of the best things about modern gaming is the sheer variety on offer. If you can imagine it, you can probably play it, for better or worse. Part of this is due to the lower barriers to entry which have occurred because of better creation tools, and a healthier development infrastructure, and part of […]

Disney receives a surreal middle finger!

Director

Randy Moore

Cast

Roy Abramsohn
Elena Schuber
Katelynn Rodriguez
Jack Dalton
Danielle Safady
Annet Mahendru

Escape From Tomorrow (2013) You hear someone has somehow filmed an entire movie at Walt Disney World without Disney’s knowledge. You can imagine it will look like found footage garbage with key scenes shot on sets indoors. This movie was shot in shimmering black and white by a real cinematographer, and 99% of the movie […]

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

Synopsis

A very stupid and needless 3D Christmas movie

Director

Todd Strauss-Schulson

Cast

Kal Penn
John Cho
Danny Trejo
Kenneth Park
A Wafflebot

A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS When this movie isn’t being gross with the bodily fluid humor, or disturbing near-rape scene, (just does NOT belong in this kind of movie) it can be funny even when it is being oh, so very wrong. Oh, and a toddler gets stoned, dusted with cocaine and takes […]

Santa Claus: The Movie (1985)

Synopsis

Another unnecessary, gaudy and creepy Santa Claus movie

Director

Jeannot Szwarc

Cast

Dudley Moore
John Lithgow
David Huddleston
Burgess Meredith
A bunch of cheesy reindeer

Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) You would think that the mash-up of Superman and the Santa Claus mythos would, at the very least, be interesting. You would be wrong. The Christopher Reeves starring Superman was such a hit that the producers decided to ape the origin story arc and apply it to Santa Claus. Interesting […]

Kristin Chenoweth
Alia Shawkat
Dylan Blue

[The Goat Chimes in pre-review] Deck The Halls (2006) is a delightfully funny Christmas Movie starring Danny Devito, Matthew Broderick and Kristin Davis. Of course, I’m just kidding as this was a horribly failed and vulgar attempt at a cash grab movie, with zero redeeming qualities. Just fuck this movie. It was just terrible and […]

Murder on the Orient Express: Another Look The seventies were the Golden Ages for Agatha Christie novels being translated into movies for the big screen. Sure, one can argue that there were many versions of her novels or stories already, like 10 Little Indians, which had already been done many times, and with different titles. […]

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) is a surprise mash-up horror/romance/drama with comic undertones. It was based on the novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, (who also wrote the fun Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). He managed to mashes up two very unlikely sources, coming up with something remarkably coherent. While A.L.V.H. was fun […]
