|64 T4||Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) - Jan 12, 2018
"It's like someone at "B-lumhouse" read my review and made me a backdoor pilot for my "The CW" style "Supernatural" like show with Lin Shaye and the geek/ghost squad. More of the same expected from the series so far, plus a little heartfelt tale of love and death and the story of how the band got together told with a monster of the week, which here is a ghostly version of an evil 2-1B surgical droid."
|66 T4||Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) - Jan 12, 2018
"This continuation of the first story is practically just more of the same "B-lumhouse" movie ghost story schlock. The existence of a cash-grab sequel created by the original's obvious sequel bait dark ending, is a horror franchise tradition, but this movie's weird use of causality loops feels like sequel filler to pad out the rehashed plot. More "Insidious" world building that instead makes me just want to watch a "The CW" style "Supernatural" like show with Lin Shaye and the geek/ghost squad."
|67 T5||Insidious (2010) - Jan 12, 2018
"After entering with low expectations I found this modern"B-lumhouse" movie ghost story watchable enough. Although full of plenty of the expected generic jump scares and stupid characters, the movie manages to build some genuine tension at times while also playing with some fun tweaks on a "haunted house" story. Lin Shaye as the medium was wonderful, plus I enjoyed the corny ghost hunter sidekicks, but despite wanting to like some of the ideas, the PG-13 spooky startles weren't for me."
|35 T2||Clash of the Warlords (1985) - Jan 11, 2018
"As far as a bad B-movie 80's "Mad Max" ripoffs go, this one from the Philippines was watchable enough with the its awkward fighting, cheesy action, and low-rent charms. However until the action finale featuring shoot-outs, explosions, and a not-"light saber" duel, much of the movie feels like a series of stalled action scenes intercut with introducing "Mad Rex's" potential love interests in order to stretch the basic post-apocalyptic revenge "plot" into a 70 minute movie."
|80 T8||The Room (2003) - Jan 11, 2018
"After achieving midnight movie cult status, fueling both the successful book and movie, "The Disaster Artist", this is possibly the world's most notorious so-bad-it's-good movie. When witnessed alone the movie melted my brain, as it is nothing but a baffling, delirious, ego passion project oddity that induces madness when applied to logic. However with an audience of like minded people, the movie transforms into a comedy where laughter rains down like spoons."
|57 T3||Samurai Cop (1991) - Jan 10, 2018
"After another attempt at making a half-assed low-rent quasi buddy cop style action movie, director Amir Shervan accidentally succeed by making a cult classic so-bad-it's-good movie instead. Packed with text book examples of odd & fascinating bad movie quirks, that when combined become capable of hypnotizing audiences with its awfulness. Although plenty of delightfully charming so-bad-it's-good laughs, a lot of the movie is just an unadulterated terribly made B-movie that needs to be experienced."
|26 T1||Young Rebels (1989) - Jan 09, 2018
"My latest visit to the Shervan Ranch was greeted with another attempted action movie filled boring "action", an awful story, and plenty of American "T&A". The film features maybe 3-4 full song length topless dances sprinkled in throughout the fist fights, shoot-outs, and car chases that range from laughably bad to simply boring. Although their is some so-bad-it's-good fun to be had, most of the movie remains in the tedious forgettable B-movie range. Only for your Shervan completionist."
|37 T2||Killing American Style (1990) - Jan 08, 2018
"We return to the Shervan Ranch for more bad movie fun. Although the quality of the film here in some areas seems slightly improved compared to "Hollywood Cop"(1987), which in turn makes the movie have less "so-bad-they're-good" moments, it still has plenty of trademark bizarre quirks to stay kind of entertaining enough to be watchable for fans of bad B-movies. "
|47 T2||Hollywood Cop (1987) - Jan 07, 2018
"Director Amir Shervan's attempt at making a half-assed low-rent quasi buddy cop style action movie is so bad, that it gives audiences enough excess gas that every screening ends with a TUMS FESTIVAL. However, there is something delightful about the bad chalky taste this movie leaves in your mouth, but only for fans of so-bad-it's-good movies."
|49 T3||Tetsuo II: Body Hammer (1992) - Jan 06, 2018
"The sequel to "Tetsuo: The Iron Man"(1989) is kinda like if Shin'ya Tsukamoto remade the original "Tetsuo" but into more of like a "movie" movie, and not the weird experimental short film, that just happens to be feature length, that was the first. If that makes sense. Like strangely this story is more straightforward, which I like, but the shocking experimental charms seemed to have been replaced with a kind of anime schlock. However, probably enough here for fans of the original to enjoy. "
