2010 | Color | 105 Minutes | 1.78:1 | NR | Horror | Stereo | Moviehead Pictures
Writers: James Nguyen
Plot:A platoon of eagles and vultures attacks the residents of a small town. Many people die. It's not known what caused the flying menace to attack. Two people manage to fight back, but will they survive Birdemic?
How the hell do you review a $10,000 crap fest that took 4 years to make and has a cult following! You don't this movie sucks butt in so many ways. The only saving factor was I watched the version on ConTv with the guys from Riff Tracks. At least the jokes made this movie somewhat watchable. James Nguyen made the actress wear bikinis during the make-out scenes because he did not want the couples to actually have sex. The birds or so bad they don't really move just float around kind of attacking people. The acting is notorious to the point of them being the butt of most jokes.

Ever since I can remember the 4th of July has been a big summer movie weekend. And as we plan on hitting the multiplex for some Inside Out this weekend here are a few of the movies I like to revisit to get in the Independence Day mood.
Nothing gets the American blood flowing like Rocky can!

All though the thermostat says 70 degrees and the calendar says July I'm a bit confused as I write this post. Part of me wants to grab some pumpkin ale and sit on the porch while carving a few Jack-O-Lanterns. It is summer and the 4th of July is one of those big picnic and party days where everybody gathers together and create fun memories to last a lifetime. So today I thought why not share a few recipes from my Seagram's food and drink guide that has that late 60's vibe.
This is a pretty big book if you like this post let me know and I will post a few more in the future. Happy 4th paly safe.

Writer: Chris R. Notarile
Plot:Friday the 31st: Michael vs Jason is 2005, 22-minute, a fan-made film directed by Chris Notarile. This film has become a sensation for horror fans worldwide, first being uploaded on YouTube and being available on other websites such as Vimeo. The film starts with John Tate visiting his mother's grave in Haddonfield, Illinois. After the visit, John and his fiancee, Sara Moyer, then head off for New York, unaware that they're being followed by John's deadly uncle, Michael Myers. Lost for directions, they end up in Crystal Lake in New Jersey and they encounter Tommy Jarvis, on the run from his masked nemesis, Jason Voorhees. Tommy elaborates what happened when he was 12 when Jason killed his mother. As John encounters Jason, Tommy's partner, Chera, is killed by Michael, and Tommy is incapacitated by Jason, and as they encounter each other, they begin their fierce battle.
Sometimes you just find the oddest things at a garage sale. I have never heard of this had no clue what I was getting into but for the price figured what the hell I'm in. Was it a good thing or a bad thing well...

It's fathers day weekend and you know what that means! Baseball, cookouts, and 120 miles of Garage Sale fun. Well for me that is. We look forward to this event every year, but it is pretty hard to cover 120 miles in just a few hours of a Saturday so we just pick a direction (we live 15 miles South of the middle of the sale) this year we went West. We really only intended to do Princeton and Wynette this year, but we tossed in Dover and one here in our back yard. Next year we will head back east. When Ella and I first did the trip a few years back we made it pretty far to the west but now it goes even longer than before. But we still found quite a few treasures.

1993 | Color | 79 Minutes | 1.37:1 | R | Horror | Mono | Full Moon
Writers: Todd Henschell
Plot:A young scientist working on an artificial intelligence project is the target of strange gremlin-like creatures, who are out to kill him and thus terminate his research. By coincidence, in one of the rooms he uses, there's a mysterious case containing the puppets of the "puppet master". When the puppets are brought to life, they help destroy the creatures.
So what the hell just happened? What the heck was this movie? And this was set to be a big screen flick titled Puppet Master The Movie! Thank god they did not do that. And it was filmed back to back with Part 5 that I already know is the weakest of the group. So I wonder how could it get any worse than this. Boy, I have so much to look forward to.

Bruce Howard (American version)
Who does not love men in rubber suits fighting for the good of mankind? I'm a pretty big fan of the Godzilla movies and if you look past the cheese that comes with this you will find a fun little monster vs monster movie. The idea for this movie came from the mind of Willis O'Brien who was the special effects artist on King Kong (1933). The same man who was pushing to make King Kong vs Frankenstein in the 1950's. Frank was to be made of Animal parts how gross is that? John Beck offered the idea to Toho who replaced Frankenstein with Godzilla.
For this film, they toned down Godzilla's famous roar to the higher pitch that what we hear today. This was to make him less scary to kids. They also made Kong a little more comical to make them less scary. This, of course, was before Godzilla became a hero.
Not much you can say for the acting its dubbed of course, but one of the key things with these movies is the way they look and feel. Nothing is better then miniature tanks and houses being destroyed. I love the soundtrack for this movie, especially the native island chant's and drums. This was a fun movie to revisit and Sven's shtick was perfect.
So you can see I'm super far behind on my Sven watching and really need to get caught up. Thankfully we have a ton of space still on the TiVo.
Before Freddy Vs Jason, these two mighty monsters dueled to a tune of...

Kind of a slow week this week. We really had no intention of hunting, but we were within a jump of the thrift shop so we ran in fast. Nothing too exciting they were running a 5 for a dollar on VHS tapes, but they only had one that I have never seen before. I just might venture out during the fathers day weekend for the big garage sale but not 100% on that yet. Click here for more information on the Route 34 Sales. I will never do the full 100 plus miles but still we hit a few of the bigger towns and that is more than enough for me.
