This Wednesday September 11, we’re going old school with House of Evil. Boris Karloff, a strange castle, haunted toys? Nom, nom, nom. There’s no trailer available for this one, but how can we go wrong?
All right, now that we’re fully rested from shark week, it’s time we prove that we’re all masochists. That’s right. This Wednesday, August 28, we’re watching Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike. Taste the paranoia.
This is available on Netflix.
What? You don’t think we’d pay extra to mock this movie, do you? After this, though, we’ll be mocking a couple of movies that no one has to pay for, just to piss off John Galt. [Read more...]
We were duped. Lied to by the Shark Week Countdown Timer way back when we decided we needed to add this movie to our mocking list. So we’re moving the movie. This Wednesday, in observance, we will watch Deep Blue Sea. It stars Thomas Jane and is about super-smart sharks. How bad can it be? Oh, about this bad.
This Wednesday, we’re mocking Total Recall, the original unoriginal adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s story of ideas into a story of whiz bang (bang, bang, bang…). I saw this when it came out and the only thing I remember from it is laughing my head off when…well, is 23 years too soon for spoilers?
This Wednesday, July 17, we’re…yeah, I don’t really know what we think we’re doing watching Gymkata. All I can really tell you is that it took some work to convince us that this movie wasn’t a self-parody and, thus, nearly impossible to mock.
It’s the movie you haven’t been waiting for! Originally scheduled for July 3, this movie marks our return to cheap, cheesy sci fi with the 1978 War of the Robots. This Italian film doesn’t seem to have a trailer–or no one has bothered to save it for posterity–but here’s a quick taste.
As we get closer to the mocking scheduled for this week, we realize there’s no way we can run this. Our admins (Jason and I) and one of our regulars (PZ) are going to be getting ready for CONvergence/SkepchickCon. There is party room gear to be moved, people coming into town to be greeted, and any last-minute emergencies to be handled.
So we’ll postpone the event for a week. That will mean two mockings in two weeks! Be nice to your livers and your fingers in the meantime, because we’re coming back with…this:
If you must have some movie mocking in the meantime, and you’re at CONvergence, you can join Kevin Murphy, Rebecca Watson, PZ Myers, and Bill Corbett as they mock Prometheus at 11:30 in Atrium 6. The rest of us may not seem so funny after the pros, but at least we’ll have each other.
From libertarian douchebags to Chuck Norris. What a stretch. This Wednesday, June 19, we take a different view of what it means to free yourself from pesky government intervention with Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection, a movie that appears to be so incoherent that even it’s IMDb description can’t be followed.
Yesterday, Maine’s house of representatives voted on whether to accept money from the federal government for the Medicaid expansion provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Before they did so, House Minority Leader Ken Fredette, representing a chunk of Penobscot County, had this justification to give for not wanting the money (transcript follows).
