    Sharknado 5: Global Swarming

    I GAVE THIS MOVIE ITS TITLE! Sort of...
    Well, no... fuck "sort of." HELL YEAH, I DID.

    I've actually never seen the movie, but I just wanted to toot my own horn a little for attention.

    See, after the first movie was such a surprise hit, SyFy immediately ordered a followup. So they announced a contest to title the second movie. All you had to do was go on Twitter and enter. So, I came up with this title, clever…

    In "Best Of" horror lists, this movie consistently ranks somewhere around number 25. But I don't care what anyone says, it will always be my #1 favorite horror film. I first encountered it around 23 years ago when I worked at a mom-and-pop video store in Manhattan. I was in the midst of getting my film education from the dusty shelves full of VHS tapes. I had always been fascinated by ghost stories and had already had one of my…

    A pretty typical odd-couple buddy actioner of the early '90s, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It works more often than not but it isn't as successful as many of its peers. For one, it feels more like an '80s film and its plot is definitely out of that decade, but for 1991 that's allowable. What's not as acceptable is that it feels strictly like a paycheck film for Gene Hackman, who is practically sleepwalking he seems so bored. Baryshnikov…

    Wow! What a discovery this was! It's like the most entertaining PSA on VD you've ever seen. I mean, not only does it have a terrific story, dialogue, and cast, and an engaging mystery at its heart...but it's socially responsible, too! Philip Michael Thomas (Miami Vice) stars as Dr. Calvin Crosse, who has just been released from prison where he was incarcerated for performing an illegal abortion that caused a woman's death. He heads straight to an island where another…

    Let me just say this up front: If you are a heterosexual male, you will probably hate this movie. I hate to generalize, but I've already read some bad reviews by men and I just know this is not a guy kind of movie. It's chick-flick horror. And to be fair, yes, the film does lean pretty heavily on the female spirituality thing, especially in its rather disappointing and overblown denouement. But up until that, I was loving every second…

    Holy frigballs, this movie is AMAZING! Absurdly hilarious and wildly inventive, it's nerd nirvana for lovers of horror, sci-fi, gore, monsters, and stupid humor. This is definitely going to be spawning a franchise, at least I hope so. I haven't laughed so hard at a movie in ages. Granted, I don't watch a lot of comedies, but this humor was right up my alley: irreverent and absurd. Young star Nita-Josée Hanna anchors the film with an incredible performance, self-assured beyond…
