Sunday Cinema – Aliens Vs Avatars

Aliens

 

 

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

With the Disneyworld area unleashed and the promise of 2 more sequels, how best can you capitalize on a film when you don’t own the film property? Mash a part of the film’s premise together with another big franchise and you get this turd. 6 college students are stuck in the middle of an intergalactic war between 2 races of aliens, one race that can shape-shift into anything using the DNA it consumes…

Pandering to the Masses

Pandering to the Masses

 

The office building where MattyV works will be demolished and replaced with an 8-screen movie theater with dine-in service. These are becoming more and more common as theater owners try to get people into the theater seats while competing with internet streaming & other distractions. Thrillist has an article from 2013 on cool dine-in movie theaters across the country…

Dan the Man’s obsession with Burger King’s “2 for $5” Italian chicken sandwich deal

MattyV is a Kubrick fan, Dan the Man is a mini-series fan when it comes to “The Shining”. Oh, and it’s Mr. Halloran the boys couldn’t remember the name of.

If Chins Could Kill – Confessions of a B-Movie Actor” by Bruce Campbell is a pretty good Audible book. Read by the author, Bruce’s dulcet tones are dreamy…

Is “Seven” a good baby’s name? George Costanza thinks so

Out for a Sip?”, well Coca-Cola is in trouble with a Canadian rapper that trademarked that phrase. Interesting to see how they respond….

As far as making YouTube money, it’s possible if you have the content to attract an audience and keep them. Chandler Dickinson, James Townsend, & Rob Scallon do well with attracting & maintaining their audiences.

Sunday Cinema – “Bikini Spring Break”

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

What do you get when you mix “Revenge of the Nerds”, “Spring Breakers”, & “American Pie”? You get this raunchy T&A fest starring Lewis Skolnic himself. A take on the film starring James Franco & Selena Gomez, check the YouTube comments for time markers where nudity can be gawked at…

Spidey Sense

Spidey Sense

This week the boys checked out “Spiderman:Homecoming” at the theater, so if you don’t want things spoiled – DON’T LISTEN until after you’ve seen it!

Nerdist has been a great resource for the movie, sharing possible MCU spoilers, looking at the science of Spiderman’s wall-crawling, & whether or not there will be a Spiderman/Venom cross-over movie.

Hearken back 2 years when we mentioned the cheesy Turkish rip-off of Spiderman (“3 Dev Adam” in our Sunday Cinema ‘Turkish Star Wars” blog entry.

Us Gen-Xers remember the 1977-1978 CBS television series, “The Amazing Spiderman“, starring Nicholas Hammond as the webbed wonder. Or maybe the old Electric Company skits on PBS.

Jennifer Connolly (who voices “Karen”, Peter’s suit AI) shows some titties along with Virginia Madsen in “The Hot Spot“.

John Francis Daley co-wrote the script, you might remember him as Sam from “Freaks & Geeks“.

Aladdin’s Castle was THE place to be in any mall. NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, & Street Fighter ruled the day…

SNES Classic is going to contain Star Fox 2, an unreleased SNES title. Hopefully they will have enough in production to meet demand…

Sega is releasing their catalog of games on both Android & iOS, free-to-play with ads or you can pay to have the ads removed…

One of the more recent actors to wear the Spidey suit, Andrew Garfield, is in a bit of trouble when he said upon researching his role as a gay man that he was essentially gay without the physical act.

MattyV has been late to the party, he JUST nicely finished “Rick and Morty“…

Technically, there are a total of 8 Infinity Gems. The original six are a part of the MCU…

Sunday Cinema – Panda Fighter

 

Panda

 

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

“The Little Panda Fighter” is a rip-off of the Dreamworks/Jack Black franchise that has become popular in the last few years. Pancada works at a boxing club but secretly wants to become a dancer. He is forced to fight thanks to a mistaken identity. I mean it when I say to watch at your own risk…

Sunday Cinema – What’s UP!

 

What's Up

 

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

An obvious take on the popular (yet sad) movie from Disney, this 45-minute computer animated feature utilizes only the name & the concept of a balloon-floating house from the original – the professor & some kids battling aliens is the difference…

Offensive Trademarks

Offensive Trademarks

 

If you’re thinking about starting a podcast for yourself, check out TwistedWave’s audio editor which is available for Mac/iOS or online if you don’t have either. The app is $10 on iTunes, MattyV would have gladly paid for the app (but being the cheapass he is, it was advertised as free a few months ago).

Poll – Do you tip at fast casual/drive-thru restaurants? If someone just hands you your food & does nothing else, do you feel obligated to tip?

Check out this Huffington Post article on fast food – ad versus reality to see how pictured food differs greatly from what you get in reality…

This is the scene MattyV was referencing in regards to the “jigsaw pizza” incident…

The Best of Times” is a pretty good film (although rather dated) about a guy wanting to re-live the moment where his live took a turn for the worst.

Bob Seger & Taylor Swift have returned to Spotify, Bob is one of the last artist holdouts for online music streaming. Taylor had left due to her belief in physical album & digital album sales (along with her stake in Tidal), but had returned to a pretty big bump in her catalog (some of her albums returned to the Billboard Top 200 once she returned to Spotify).

Check out Steel Panther (aka Metal Skool), a pretty good hair metal band reminiscent of the era. A lot of the songs are NSFW, so be warned!

Too many DJs today are still trying to be Howard Stern back when Howard Stern was Howard Stern (NSFW)

Psychostick. Gotta check out Psychostick

The Slants won their Supreme Court case allowing them to trademark their name. With this win, the Washington Redskins will be able to retain their trademark and not have to rename the team…

Here’s the article that Dan the Man referenced in talking about how we got from Obama being held as the epitome of man to Donald Trump…

Hannibal Buress shares his appreciation for campaigning for president…

The bust that was the Georgia special election

W loved the old D&D cartoon show (MattyV bought the entire series from the local used DVD/CD shop for like $3.99)…

Sunday Cinema – “Closed for the Season”

 

Closed

 

This month’s “Sunday Cinema” theme is Amusement Parks! Summer is always equated with throngs of hot & sweaty families waiting in long lines for rides while stuffing their gobs with turkey legs & overpriced hot dogs.

 

These days just about anyone can produce their own television program or movie that has the opportunity to be seen by millions of people around the world. The digital age has put the equipment within reach of those that may not have had the opportunity to make their voice heard even 10 years ago. This week’s film is certainly a low-budget affair with some interesting twists. From CGI roller coasters to VERY wooden acting, “Closed for the Season” is a mish-mash of classic B-movie style horror and poor execution. Only one notable actor, Joe Unger, who has been in many television & movie roles as a supporting actor (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”, “Total Recall”, “The Bodyguard” to name a few).

Kristy enters a closed amusement park to retrieve something she had left behind the day before. Trapped within the park, she is trapped by the “living memories” of the park and has to find a way to escape. Filmed at the long-defunct Chippewa Lake Amusement Park in Ohio, many of the stories found in the movie are loosely-based on incidents that apparently happened in real life at the park.

The someone has posted this film for free on YouTube…

 

The N-Word

The N-Word

 

Is there a word that is as offensive as the N-word in regards to the African-American population or the C-word in regards to to the female population? I kinda think that Dan the Man was channeling Randall Graves.

J recommends checking out Ice Cube’s new single, “Good Cop, Bad Cop“.

The boys checked out the movie, “Wonder Woman“, and each had their own opinions. It wasn’t in J’s wheelhouse, MattyV thought it was good (but not “gotta see it again in the theater” good), while Dan the Man felt it has redeemed the DCEU.

William Moulton-Marston, co-creator of the polygraph, wanted to create a super hero that fought enemies with truth & love. His wife encouraged him to make the character a female and Wonder Woman was born.

Wonder Woman’s Godkiller sword is sharp enough to cut through anything due to the blade’s edge being able to separate atoms.

Dan thought that this scene from the original 1979 “Superman” movie was lame because of the rewinding of time, why didn’t he do this all the time? MattyV recommends checking out Tell’em Steve-Dave’s audiobook “A Small Fistful of Dollahs“, a funny story indeed.

Much like DC’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths“, Marvel’s “Secret Empire” series reveals the meaning behind Steve Roger’s statement – “Hail, Hydra“…

“Scripted Reality” has been a staple of television for the last almost 20 years. From “American Pickers” to “Hardcore Pawn“, even TLC’s “Born this Way” is scripted in one way/shape/form.

Funny how even television game shows are often scripted in their jokes and patter. The Match Game with Brett Somers & Charles Nelson Reilly have always been classics…

Justice League” is going to be mind blowing…

Sunday Cinema – “Hocus Pocus Park”

 

splits

 

This month’s “Sunday Cinema” theme is Amusement Parks! Summer is always equated with throngs of hot & sweaty families waiting in long lines for rides while stuffing their gobs with turkey legs & overpriced hot dogs.

There were some pretty whacked-out children’s television programming back in the late-1960’s/early 1970’s. From HR Pufinstuf to Space Nuts, it was a psychedelic time indeed. “The Banana Splits” was a variety show of sorts, a cast of amusement park characters having adventures, singing songs, & presenting serialized “show within a show” clips. This episode follows the Splits as they rescue a young girl from a parallel world where witches & magic are alive and well.

Someone got this from Boomerang and decided to share it with those that don’t have the channel
