Welcome back to “Its Hammer time where I pick a few of my
favorite films from that Haunted House of Horror fondly known as Hammer Films.
Here's yet another recommendation-Twins
Tagline: “One Uses Her Beauty For Love! One Uses Her
Lure For Blood!Which is the Virgin?
Which is the Vampire?”
What happens when a thrill seeker gets more than what she
bargained for? Well, Hammer's Twins of Evil has the answer! Loosely based on
the vampire tale Carmillaand
part of Hammer’s Karnstein Trilogy, (And often seen as the prequel despite its
release after the previous Films: The
Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire.)
Twins of Evil, is set within nineteenth
century middle-Europe, where orphaned teenage twins Maria and Frieda go to live
with their uncle Gustav Weil, (Played by the legendary actor and Hammer staple,
Peter Cushing) who heads the Brotherhood, a vigilante group trying to stamp out
vampirism. Needless to say, their methods are way arbitrary and inappropriate which
In this unapologetic, outspoken but hilarious podcast, Asi
and Stalkeye discuss what happened to Sean Connery’s career, the “gayness” of
the 80’s and if there’s one Canadian
that deserves to get punched in the face!
Now that there's a rumor floating around about in regard to disgraced Director James Gunn working on the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad, here's a review originally published from the now defunct site-Supernaughts courtesy of my good friend Bop aka Bopnrumble.
I accepted a long time ago, that Hollywood makes movies for an as large as possible audience as possible. I also accepted that the entertainment factor wouldn't be optimal. Needless to say, I also accepted I would be witnessing serious crap. And of course, I accepted that comic movies will be different from the comics themselves, so I shouldn't judge them harshly. But sometimes there are exceptions.
The lowest point in comic movies was this year's X-Men: Apocraplypse.I never expected a comic movie would make X-Men: The Last Stand look like a masterpiece. Just when you think you saw the worst comic movie along comes Suicide Squad.
WHERE DO I FUCKING START????????
I am a big Suicide Squad fan. The 66 issue…
Sometimes TV shows or movies slip past your radar. It can take a while before you catch up. Often it is through recommendation by friends or by TV and movies sites. I was looking forward to sinking my teeth into a TV show, because all my favorite shows are not running any episodes at the moment. Blood Drive was a welcome addition!
What can I say about Blood Drive? Well, for the moment let's say SyFy took it to the extreme. They have become hardcore. Now, I don't remember if I watched much SyFy stuff in the past, but I was always under the impression it was not really my kind of TV station. I was never a big fan of sci fi stuff. Sure, there were a few exceptions like the original Battlestar Galactica or Buck Rogers but mostly it was never my kind of genre. I didn't feel it. That is why I was never interested in what SyFy had to offer.
Now Blood Drive... That is not sci-fi to me. The goal of this show seems to be to piss off as many people as they can. Nothing is sacred it …
We live in the age
of mediocrity. Most Hollywood movies of today suck. Most music of today sucks.
Most sports athletes suck. Most comics of today suck. And to add for good
measure Disney sucks, but that’s nothing new. The biggest problem that I have
with mediocrity is that it is promoted as the best thing ever. People who don’t
have talent at all become legends. This is the world we live in now. When people are
not mediocre they shine. You know they worked hard to master their
craftsmanship and it shows. Their work actually speaks to you! The past few weeks
SUCKED, because we lost some amazing creators. Those creators were not
mediocre. They were very good at what they did.
The first is
Carlos Ezquerra. He created the initial idea for Judge Dredd, but he wasn’t the
first artist. Carlos is probably known most for his later work on Judge Dredd.
He co-created Strontium Dog. He drew the legendary Preacher one-shot The Good
Old Boys and he drew the Saint Of Killers limited series. I liked his…
