Coming Attraction: October 2011 Previews!

Action Flick Chick | September 30, 2011

It’s October, which usually means that the theaters will be chock full of horror flicks to celebrate the arrival of the Great Pumpkin! This year is a little low in the blood and gore department, though. Maybe no-one wants to spend money making a horror movie when the ultra-cheap Paranormal Activity series keeps dominating [...]

Time Traveling Hook-ups!

Blog-It Llama! | September 29, 2011

Time traveling hookups are, in general, a terrible idea. You never know whose great-grandmother/father’s pants you’re sticking your hand into, and you might be really messing up someone’s bloodline by throwing that person off the course from who they’re supposed to be with. Which could be disastrous for you if that person happens to be [...]

Must Watch Movies from the ’80s: Lethal Weapon (1987)

Action Flick Chick | September 26, 2011

A movie always gets bonus points when the first scene has a naked lady and then shortly after that you see a young Mel Gibson’s naked rear. Add a name like Lethal Weapon, a kickass costar like Danny Glover, and lines like “I’m too old for this sh**,” and you’ve got yourself a recipe for [...]

Looking Back at Dollhouse!

Action Flick Chick | September 25, 2011

Remember a show called Dollhouse by Joss Whedon? It wasn’t too long ago that it was aired on TV, but it had such a short lifespan you might have missed it. I just recently finished watching the whole series. It was only on the air for two short seasons but was very enjoyable. Read my [...]

The Netflix/Qwickster Debacle

Action Flick Chick | September 21, 2011

As some of you may have heard, recently the president of Netflix, Reed Hastings, posted some information that kind of has Netflix subscribers in a stir:
“An Explanation and Some Reflections
… my greatest fear at Netflix has been that we wouldn’t make the leap from success in DVDs to success in streaming. Most companies that are [...]

Coming Attraction: Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2011)

Action Flick Chick | September 20, 2011

I think we’ve all seen several films about crazy rednecks in the woods trying to kill off a group of attractive people. So it really shouldn’t be a surprise that country boys Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are mistaken as killers by a group of young attractive people while on vacation in a [...]

Memoirs of a Time-Traveling Transvestite Geisha

Blog-It Llama! | September 19, 2011

Despite the rampant ways that time travelers have suffered excruciating and diverse deaths, most spend their entire lives without ever once dying, or, at the very least, without dying more than once, all thanks to planning ahead. Appropriately organizing for time travel can make the whole ordeal a more pleasurable and worry-free experience. A man [...]

What Movies Should Never be Remade?

Action Flick Chick | September 14, 2011

With the endless line of remakes/reboot Hollywood is producing lately, I couldn’t help but ask twitter, “What movie should NEVER be remade?” A lot of people answered Back to the Future, which I couldn’t agree with more, but that’s not my number one film I’d hate to see get remade. I’m almost afraid to mention [...]

Kids- Time Travel and Magic Don’t Mix!

Alex | September 13, 2011

If a magic spell is what you used to travel through time, for heaven’s sake say the spell correctly. Many a time traveler has unwittingly unleashed an army of darkness upon the land, just because they were too lazy to remember exactly how the spell goes. Also, it never hurts to drink plenty of water [...]
