Frankenfish

24Sep07

Frankenfish rocked! It had many of the elements that I love! 1. Backwoods setting (Louisiana bayou) 2. Secret scientific coverup 3. giant marauding beasties 4. tough hunter type guy who gets his just desserts 5. smarmy guy who’s not so bad but also get his just desserts 6. bad dialogue 7. hippie pot smoking naked […]


Bone Snatchers

24Sep07

Bone Snatchers was beyond bad. Everything about the premise, characters’ actions, etc. was asinine. The pretend science behind the story was hilarious and made 24’s “whatever technology” seem plausible. The CGI was actually not bad, mostly. The funniest part of it? At the end, as the camera sweeps over the Sahara desert, there’s a small […]


Boa v. Python

24Sep07

The CGI is so incredibly poorly done that it made me squee in delight. The storytelling was preposterous, the acting horrendous and the romance between protagonists laughable. The idea that […]

Let’s hear it for the […]


Octopus

The sub got sunk and the toxic waste leaked out, somehow creating a very large and mean octopus that lived in the ocean for more than 40 years without […]


Chupacabra

21Sep07

This review will suck, because I only kind of half-watched, half-slept and half-made out with my boyfriend while the movie was on. Basically, a chupacabra finds its way onto a cruise ship and proceeds to eat lots of people. They have to call in some really lame Navy SEALS who say things like “BooYA!!!” approximately […]


This one’s got the usual SciFi quality graphics, which were awesomely bad. In a nutshell, every volcano in the world is about to erupt all at one time, so the on-the-fringe scientist and his crack team of grad students have to find a way to stop the extinction of all life on the planet. To […]
