This week, Brian and John try to analyze the age old conflict between nerds.....Star Trek vs Star Wars.....I mean Practical FX vs CGI.  Yes a war that has been waged  on between cinephiles in the lobbies of movie theaters across the world since 1993.  But why do these techniques in creating the fantastical have to be polar opposites?  Why is there so much love for what arguably are less realistic and more expensive practical fx and...

This week, John and Brian sit in some group therapy as we examine the loss of their childhood with the newest dinosaur-sized turd in the form of Jurassic World: Dominion. This movie has it all:  a ridiculous plot, phoned in "member berries in the form of vintage Jurassic Park characters showing up, and all the dinosaur action that a bloated hollywood cash grab can muster.  Despite all that, the real question we all have is how ...

This week, John and Brian dust off their sling rings as they re enter the world of marvel with it's newest entry (no not Thor Love and Thunder....or Ms. Marvel....Or Moon Knight....way too many marvel properties).  No we'll be talking about Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness...That's right Doctor Strange in his own movie and not just a discount Iron Man in someone else's movie.  This time around, the Doctor...

When you think of gross out/sex comedies of the 2000's-2010's; What films come to mind?  Do you automatically go to such classics  like "Road Trip".  Or perhaps you are a bit more sophisticated and prefer to sing "Scotty Doesn't Know!" as you binge watch Euro Trip for the 50th time.  Or maybe there is a deep dark crevace in your DVD rack that holds one of the most unfunny and purely vile films to grace t...

After a bit of a break, we are back with a brand new episode.  And after our foray into high cinema with last episode's extensive review of "The Batman".  We figured we had to follow up such a high mark in cinema with a complete turd of a movie.  Kinda like having your delicious taco bell then suffering for it about an hour or so later.  And boy of boy do we have a stinker this week.  What happens when you combine a bun...

This week, Brian and John don't just emerge from the shadows, they are the shadows.....well not quite.  More like they emerged from the shadows of a movie theater with smilex gas grins across their faces after seeing Matt Reeves' "The Batman".  Fair warning, this review does contain some spoilers.  So if you have yet to see the film, please check it out first.  But with this being the 3rd batman to be introduced in ...

This week, we are back with a long long long overdue breakdown of the year that was 2021.  Yes it's March and yea this is usually the time of the year when we pull a bad Leprechaun movie to review...but 2021 was full of so much insanity, how could we not spend some time talking about it.  How much insanity do you ask?  Well we've got everything from the tragedy and revolt of film workers to those we lost....and those we can...

This week, we are jacking in "hehe" back into the world of kung fu and bullet-time with a long awaited review of The Matrix Resurrections.  A movie that no one really asked for that arrived 20 years too late in the middle of a pandemic and oh yea....as part of the rooster of HBO Max movies that has had it's theatrical revenue undercut by streaming.  But aside from all those things in "the real world" going again...

This week, we are back from the multiverse of franchise madness and boy oh boy do we have a doozey of an episode to you with our review of Spiderman: No Way Home.  A movie that has proved to be one of the biggest films since Avengers: Endgame and one of the most buzz worthy films in recent years.  Literally all of 2021 was a combination of news on the pandemic and rumors and leaks about just how many spidermen would be in Spiderman...

Happy New Year Psychos Nation!  It's been a hell of a 2021 and we are hopeful that 2022 just sucks a little bit less than last year.  So to kick off 2022, we are celebrating by reviewing probably one of the only slasher films that tackle New Years Eve; 1980's New Years Evil.  A movie that manages to neither scare or entertain any audience, New Years Evil is the story of  Punk Rock/New Wave Elvira Wannabe "Blaze" who...

This week, Brian and John travel to the year 10191 the the world of Dune.  Being that Denis Villeneuve's masterpiece was recently released on HBO Max and theaters to rave reviews and serving as a visual effects schmorgasborg, we thought that instead of do a review on that movie that we take a look at the bizarre and hard to understand 1984, David Lynch version that gave us such wonderful moments like Sting in a triangle cod pie...

This week, Brian and John are explorers in the further reaches of experience as we take a trip back to the year 1987 and review a film that serves as a perfect fit between this gap of time between Halloween and Thanksgiving; Clive Barker's Hellraiser.  A movie that is equal parts family drama (just like thanksgiving) and sadomascistic demons from beyond the grave.....see I told you it works for both holidays.  Hellraiser was a ...

What happens when nostalgia for a horror book series from the 90's collides with a streaming giant with an insatiable appetite for content....you get the 3 part extravaganza, FEAR STREET! As we come down from the halloween highs, Brian and Laine felt it was a good idea to take a deep look at this series that manages to on one hand bring a good amount of gore and decent characters to life, but at the same time anger and confuse ...

This week, we are rolling out the perfect trick (or treat depending on how much you like this movie) with a trip back in time to the 80's.....we're not sure the year because the little gem of a movie we are reviewing may have been shot in  1984, 1985, and then released in 1986, 1987, and 1988.  The movie is the mutant mish mash that is SPOOKIES!  A movie you probably remember bits of pieces from during those late nights on ...
