Tales from the Geek Side: Smothered The Review

tftgs

What do you get when after a convention appearance gig turns out to be wildly unsuccessful and unpleasant, Smothered, a comedy horror film by John Schnieder. A group of cult horror icons, Kane Hodder, R.A. Mihailoff, Bill Moseley, Don Shanks, and Malcom Danare, find themselves persuaded to “haunt” a trailer park for the promise of $1,000 a piece for what should be relatively easy work. When they arrive they meet their employer – the trailer park’s owner – an unpleasant old bat named Agnes and her much more pleasant (at least to the eye) daughter DeeDee, who lives up to that name in the most obvious way. The group arrives at the park but soon discovers that there is more to the job than they had initially been expected and that their own lives are at risk. More

Now Geek This: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug review

cooltext1205573672Hello, and welcome to another exciting edition of Now Geek This.  Today, I will be reviewing The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, directed by fan favorite Peter Jackson. 

Before I begin my review, I must reveal two important factors regarding my viewing of this movie.  The first thing I must disclose is that I have not read the Hobbit or even watched the Rankin/Bass cartoon since I was a very young child, so the exact details of the story are a distant memory to me.  I know what you are thinking, “blasphemy!”  Just hold on a minute, I think that gave me a fresh perspective on these movies.  I know the basic story of the Hobbit of course; it is just the exact details of the story that elude me.

Dark Horse makes a 'Sacrifice'

SACRI-HC-4x6-SOLRemember how the end of the world was supposed to happen last year? I was not fooled either. But Sam Humphries saw it as an opportunity to use it as a basis for Sacrifice, a 6 part series following Hector, a Joy Division fan and an epileptic like Humphries himself. This man from San Diego is thrown back in time 700 years in a psychedelic journey to heart of of the Aztec Empire. I found this series a great read with all the insight into the Aztec culture and history. More

Godzilla vs Biollante Blu-ray review

I am going to review the Blu-ray experience of this movie distributed by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

The menus is laid out very nice with Play Movie, Scene Select, Language Setup, and Bonus Features. Being an Audiophile, I had to laugh at the choices for the Audio set up; 5.1 DTS Japanese, 2.0 DTS Japanese, or 1.0 Dolby Digital. There are also 3 offers for Subtitles as well. The menu graphics shows the updated logo title and a loop window of various clips from the film and an example of the wire frame military graphics of Godzilla.  More
