Hello folks. Apologies for the lack of activity here lately but life got crappy and I wasn’t up to being outgoing for a while.
Well, I was sitting around and decided to take shots of my HD DVD titles and post them here. I think I must have been one of the very few folks that invested in the HD DVD add on for the XBOX 360. I picked up a few titles when the format was current, purchased a big ol’ box of HD DVDs on ebay, as well as a few titles at garage sales and thrift shops. Despite being a dead format, if you have a way to play them, they are all 1080P resolution and can be picked up for a song. Great way to get some half decent HD titles! You can also either purchase the HD DVD drive add on for the 360 used for cheap (look and you will find one), and if you are lucky (or just try), you can find a crap load of the movies for super cheap.
Hope you enjoy the pictures of my collection, and I promise there will be more movie reviews coming soon!
Hey! Check out my video review of the recently released American Godzilla movie. Did they make up for the 1998 crapfest they called Godzilla? Damn straight they did!
Hey folks! Here is my Review/comparison of 1987’s Robocop versus 2014’s Robocop. I loved the original and was a little (okay, more than a little)…nervous…yeah, nervous about the reboot. Well, it’s pretty good. Better than the original? Chaeck out my video review below and find out.
Also, when you are done that, go to colexions.com to check out all the retro gaming goodness there.
So, a small town is invaded by a life form from space that looks a lot like a giant multiple headed lamprey with a penchant for making slug like babies (lots of them), and eating the locals. A group of four geeky science nerd teens and a young boy do their best to save the town (and most likely the world) from this infestation. It’s kind of weird that three of our movies had similar themes and creatures (Slither, Night of the Creeps and Deadly Spawn), not in that they are alien infestation movies (it’s kind of the theme), but the fact that the three creatures in the mentioned movies all propagate by releasing slug like grubs, liked to enter through the mouth id possible, and the main “mother” creature found someplace out of the way to grow and develop. Well, if they copied each other, this is the progenitor of all of ‘em. A silly movie, Deadly Spawn stays entertaining, and cheezy which is perfect for me. Lots of campiness to go around, and some really questionable actions by it’s characters may make you moan at times…but don’;t let that stop you from enjoying the movie. A true representative of it’s time, the early 1980’s, it still stands out as a fun, throwback to the creature features of the 50’s and 60’s…
Watch this film, my friends!
