RiffTrax Live: Sharknado 2 – The Second One

Have you ever had a plate of food placed in front of you, which looked intriguing but lacked a little flavor? Movies have been known to do the very same thing. Take for example the SYFY made-for-TV Sharknado series. On the surface, these films look like they could be a complete nightmare. But when you […]

Dope can be defined as an illegal recreational drug; a person who isn’t too smart or, in street vernacular, something that is way past cool. In director Rick Famuyiwa’s breakout Sundance Film Fest comedy, Dope, the word takes on an entire new meaning. The geeks run everything in this movie, while they are running from […]

Olive Films has been making some interesting choices in films to distribute recently. Their new partnership with Slasher Video, for example, means they’ll be distributing some truly obscure shot-on-video horror films from the 80s and 90s. They have also been steadily releasing some films from that era that seemed unlikely candidates for Blu-ray like Robert […]

Television can be a perplexing medium. Shows can range from high end quality (The Sopranos, Seinfeld, Boardwalk Empire) to bottom of the barrel drek (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jersey Shore). Some shows cater to specific age groups. Occasionally a show appears on the television landscape that brings viewers of multiple generations together. One such […]

While I tend to watch newer TV shows or go back and watch stuff from within my lifespan, it is interesting to occasionally go back further and watch TV from an antiquated era.  I enjoy seeing how the world was different even if the world in question is being distorted by situational comedy.  Oddly, I’d […]

Unlike the majority of people I know, I’ve yet to grow tired of Johnny Depp’s bizarre acting decisions as of late. I have found him as strangely funny as ever in such divisive films as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dark Shadows, and Tusk, mainly because they’re just so odd, but also because you can […]

Bad movies are a necessary evil in the world. Bad movies cause us to have a deeper appreciation of good movies. Some movies try to be quality, but fail miserably and often times hilariously. For example, the movie Birdemic. The director set out to make a serious horror film in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s […]
