The Expendables 3

ex3-02_cr

When “The Expendables” came out in 2010, I guess most of action fans were near-orgasmic because of the sheer potential the project offered. While “EX1″ was a good film, to us biased nostalgics even brilliant no matter its flaws, the next installment was quite possibly the best worst film of all time. “EX3″ sort of continues in that vein.

In a practically non-existent story, the Expendables have to take down Conrad Stonebanks – their co-founder who had gone rogue. Feeling the need for fresh blood, Sly ditches the old team and acquires young new faces who have none of the [...] Continue Reading…

The Legend of Death Bed
Ed Wood Meets Christopher Guest

In 1973 George Barry made his only feature length film, Death Bed: The Bed That Eats.  Shot at the end of his college career with a motley crew of some students, a few friends and a couple of film professionals, it has achieved cult status as the worst movie never seen.  Because Barry couldn’t get a distribution deal, or so he thought.

By 1977 Barry and Ron Medico, the film’s editor, had cut together enough of the film to start looking for a distributor.  No one would bite.   With the rise of [...] Continue Reading…

Pizza Shop: The Movie

Ah, being a reviewer of any kind isn’t that easy, and I especially loath moments like this: when you have basically nothing positive to state about someone’s work. “Pizza Shop: The Movie” is a comedy written and directed by George O’Barts, who was also kind enough to provide me with a review copy, so the bashing that will follow is done with a heavy heart.

“Pizza Shop” revolves around a group of employees in the titular shop. The film is divided into story arcs, only loosely connected. We first meet the crew as Pete (Robert Bielfelt), the shop’s most eager [...] Continue Reading…

Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief

DLIC 01

“Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief” (“D,L,IC”) is writer / director Pablo D’Stair’s second film. This one came with a friendly warning which I quote directly from the e-mail: This new one is (1) quite different than “A Public Ransom” and (2) a length shorter, so shouldn’t be too much of an ordeal.

Leonard questions his wife Lana about a strange man that had come up to him at work and introduced himself as Lana’s ex-husband. This being first word of it to Leonard, he is naturally curious and a little unsettled, even more so after Lana flatly denies it all. This [...] Continue Reading…
