The Best Gangster Films of All Time

There have been some pretty fantastic gangster films over the years, and we’re going to discuss some of the most popular and successful ones in this post. No matter how old you might be or where you are from, the movies mentioned on this page are not to be missed....

I Love The 80s

I LOVE THE 80s Horror cinema in the ‘80’s was dominated by the slasher film and, with it, heavy metal. From Freddy Krueger — who palled around with everyone from Iron Maiden to Dokken — to Jason Voorhees (who can forget Alice Cooper’s “He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)”?),...

Of Bots And Martians And Ghoulies

Tax season is finally over, so grab a frosty beverage (or one on the rocks) and kick back with another volume (32 in the series) of Shout Factory’s venerable Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K for short); you won’t need any appetizers, as this box set delivers more rich cheese than...

Bah, Humbug

The humble “Christmas Episode” of any series either means an overly-earnest piece where the characters all bond together when they’re stuck in the show’s setting instead of being with their families or, particularly in the ‘70’s or ‘80’s, an adaptation of “A Christmas Carol,” with the show’s grumpiest or most...

The Worst Casino Movies Ever

We've given you our take on the best, but now comes the ultimate list of the worst casino and gambling films of all time. Any list like this is subjective, of course, but we think that you'll agree with many of these tepid titles. It surely takes a lot of...

The Worst Casino-Related TV Shows In History

Casinos can be great sources of entertainment and they have a long-standing place in myriad cultures across the world. The casino is a truly iconic image, conjuring thoughts of James Bond and the slick crew from OCEAN'S ELEVEN. However, not all attempts at capturing the casino in entertainment have been...

Turkey Day, Mystery Science Theater 3000-Style

To most, Thanksgiving means turkey, stuffing, gravy, and the inevitable post-meal tryptophan coma. But to many, Thanksgiving also means memories of “The Turkey Day Marathon,” the non-stop, round-the-clock pile-on of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K) that ran for five consecutive Thanksgivings Days in the early ’90’s on Comedy Central....

A Very Vincent Price Halloween

Vincent Price was a man of many talents— noted actor of stage and screen, art historian, gourmet chef, and all-around bon vivant (and one-time guest on “The Dating Game”). But Price will always be remembered for his body of work in the horror genre, with his debonair mustache and cultured...

The Vengeance Of Fall

Labor Day is over, school is back in session and the days are getting shorter— and the nights longer. Autumn is here and, with it, we slowly inch toward October, it’s time to put the chill in the air with three horror titles that couldn’t be any more different, but...

Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXX

Shout Factory brings us, fortunately not a Triple-X version of the venerable Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K), but instead the thirtieth box-set installation of the iconic movie-riff show. Host and show creator Joel Hodgson (later replaced by the show’s head writer, Mike Nelson) and his robot friends Tom Servo,...

Werewolves Of Manitoba

Some great movies just fall through the cracks— lack of star-power, bad distribution, or something as simple as a tough-to-synopsize-in-one-sentence concept can all lead to the strongest movies to fall under the radar. But if a movie is good enough and strikes the right nerves with the right audience, it...

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Final Trailer

Simply stunning.

Anti-Heroes: The New Face of Television (Again...)

And the darlings of Tellywatch 2014 are…well, anti-heroes, yet again. Normal is truly boring. Witches, pirates, the moodily misunderstood and the sinisterly sci-fi seem to have found favour once again with our movies and television. Midway through 2014 and we have already seen quite a few forays into seriously good...
