GHOSTBUSTERS!

 

  “Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?” – Ghostbusters. Last week we looked at the Gremlins, this week we look at another cult series that began the same weekend as Gremlins… on the very same day in fact. That’s right, on 8th June, 1984, Ghostbusters stepped out of the supernatural shadows and claimed its place on the world stage. Within a matter of weeks they had both become ’80’s cultural icons… and even now, thirty years later, they remain as two of the most influential film series of all time. For those who have not seen Ghostbusters, I shall adumbrate… […]

GREMLINS!

 

 “For one thing, we’re insured for the damages. For another, maybe it wasn’t a place for people anyway. It was a place for things. You make a place for things… things come.” – Gremlins 2. In 1984, the world of “cute” was forever changed as Gizmo arrived on the cinema circuit and stole our hearts, our chicken and our life savings. “Gizmo Caca” – Gremlins. Written by Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire, Harry Potter 1+2;) produced by Steven Spielberg (Jaws, E.T;) and directed by Joe Dante (Small Soldiers, CSI-NY.)  This medium budget ($11-million) black-comedy became an instant cult-classic and made close to $150-million in box-office profits alone. FUN FACT: Chris Columbus got the idea for Gremlins from stories told by WW2 […]

LEXX!

 

 “I am Kai, last of the Brunnen-G. Millennia ago, the Brunnen-G led humanity to victory in the war against the Insect civilization. The Time Prophet predicted that I would be the one to destroy the Divine Order and the League of 20,000 Planets. Some day, that will happen… but not today, as today is my day of death. The day our story begins.” – Kai. This article is not for the squeamish, the sensitive, those with pink hair, or those who only live for big budget, six-pack fueled, romance driven, science-fiction TV shows. This TV series, Lexx, represents everything that is glorious about complete and utter wonderful nonsense. Made on a shoe-string budget, staring lesser known Canadian and British stage […]

Underwater Monsters!

 

 “Gavin to Adante: “So you’re proof that sea monsters really do exist?” – Jasmine Angell, Luminous. Forget Jaws! Bugger, Deep Blue Sea! Ignore, The Beast! And pay no heed to the Creature of the Black Lagoon! For today, we delve into the very depths of the oceans; today we explore every crevice on the sea floor; today we look past every piece of sea-weed; today… we find the worst creatures that the “big blue wet thing” has ever ejaculated into the human world. Today we look at bad underwater monster films. “He deliberately left you your boat because he wants to fight you alone on the sea.” – Orca. For those of you who haven’t seen these films, fear not, […]

DOCTOR WHO: 50th Anniversary.

 

 “The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.” — The Doctor, Season 5, Episode 12. What did you do last Saturday night? Hopefully you did something constructive, something fun, something uniquely sexual? If not, then I hope you joined the millions of Doctor Who, Science-Fiction, Whovians (I loathe that term;) geeks and nerds who watched the Guinness World Record setting, Doctor Who: 50th Anniversary show… The Day of The Doctor. “You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world!” — The Doctor, Season 2, Episode 2. For those of you who missed it, here’s a bit of brief recap and […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 27

 

 “Telegram. It’s a message to Captain Proton from the President of Earth.” – Paris. Welcome back. Today we look at the most promiscuous member of Star Fleet since, Captain Kirk. No, not Riker. We mean the other one. That is Tom Paris. “For a moment, I was everywhere. I mean… everywhere, Captain! With the Kazon, back home, with the Klingons, other galaxies, it was all there! I don’t know how else to explain it. It was like… Well, no, it wasn’t like anything.” – Paris. We shall start here with this common internet favourite. This meme, commonly referred to as “Paris seeking” or “Paris laid” is the most popular Paris meme available. “Class dismissed. No more robots, no more mad […]

TREMORS!

 

 “I vote for outer space. No way these are local boys.” – Tremors. Today we look at something truly underground. (See what I did there, Wookiee?) Today we look at a franchise that has kept the world entertained since 1990. Today we look – silently and with great care – at the wonderfully blood-soaked world of Tremors. “Assblasters. How’s that?” – Tremors 3. We shall start at the beginning; which is a very good place to start. In 1990, American director/producer Ron Underwood (Mighty Joe Kong, City Slickers) released his first full-length film – Tremors. This Western-Comedy-Horror, was made for roughly eleven-million Dollars, and made close to fifty-million at the box office. With its unique characters, witty one-liners, and fantastic […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 26

 

 “Any bets on this one?” – Neelix. Welcome to another Star Trek Monday. Today we look at everyone’s most beloved Talaxian chef, Neelix. “Well, as long as I don’t start… uh… assimilating the crew or sprouting Borg implants, I… I’m sure I can live with it.” – Neelix. We shall begin with this one. Commonly known as “Neelix Blue,” “Neelix Chef,” or just plain “Neelix.” This is the most common of all Neelix memes. Though I don’t recall him ever offering anyone a “Westy.” “Because Captain Janeway didn’t give up on you. She kept trying to help you.” – Neelix. [youtube id=”hUUwDWtO41Q” width=”600″ height=”350″] Next we have this little number by London based, Progressive-Trance band Neelix. (Who saw that coming?) […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 25

 

 “I get the point.” – The Doctor. Today we look at the other Doctor. That’s correct. We look at the most entertaining medical professional in Star Fleet, since McCoy. It’s time to sing along with the holographic loon. “You’ll find I’m full of surprises.” – The Doctor. We shall start with these two. This meme, commonly referred to as “Aroused Doctor” or “Doctor Face” or even “Doctor Jizz” is probably the best well known of all Doctor memes. “I need to know more about what’s happening. Is the Federation at war with the Romulans?” – The Doctor. This meme, known as “I’m a Doctor” meme, is the second most common type of Doctor meme. “You know I don’t drink; I […]

TOP 5: HORROR GAMES!

 

 Tomorrow is Halloween… I hope you’re excited! Yesterday we looked at Horror Films. Today we look at Horror Video-Games. Previously we have touched horror titles such as Slender, Evil Dead, Among the Sleep and so many more…. So, it should go without saying, we are going to focus on other titles. AMNESIA: THE DARK DESCENT. (2010/2011) This survival-horror title comes to us from Frictional Games. This independent game plays a little like a first-person adventure game  though with more of a horror feel. Obviously, as you can tell by the title, you have amnesia and have to piece together what has happened to you all the while desperately trying to avoid supernatural creatures. Unlike most horror games, if you catch […]
