Hey guys for the last couple of years I been doing something with various guests called Film Dungeon Commentary where I sit down with someone and we talk about a film while watching it. this is not a parody riffing MST3K style commentary. this is just for fun, if you have seen the movie before and want to learn something extra about it. So far I have done , Bram Stokers Dracula, The Andromeda Strain, Trick r Treat, Howling 2, Fright Night Part 2, and Blade. Coming up next, The Beyond, Marvel’s Animated Doctor Strange, Man Thing and a  as yet undecided George Romero Movie.

Here are some of the commentaries I have done below check them out and leave a comment or two.

VCR RIP

Posted in 80s, entertainment, horror, movies, news, Technology with tags , , on July 22, 2016 by chrisdsav

Japan’s Funai Electric, which claims to be the world’s last VCR manufacturer, says it will cease production of the machines this month.This company is the only one producing the machine today and parts are getting harder to find.

I had my first VCR when I was living in Germantown MD in 1987. My father had bought one from Service Merchandise and spent the night setting it up, reading over the manual trying to program the clock, this was advance stuff back then. Now its plug in and hook up an HDMI cable to a blu-ray player or Playstation 4. My last use of a VCR was in 2012 showing my ex gf Batman Mask of the Phantasm I had that VHS copy since I was 14, I gave it to my son who I showed Godzilla vs Space Godzilla in 2010 on a VHS. I held onto the devise till the summer of 2012, and left it at an old apartment for the next tenet.

I worked for a mom and pop video store in 2004 ( went out of business)  a Block Buster in 2000-2001 ( quit to join the Army)  and 2006-2008 ( fired cuz the people of Clinton MA suck and find it easy to crap all over a part time employee). At least two of these locations I still had access to VHS tapes and that was half the fun of working there FREE MOVIES to rent. I would hot my local store for VHS tapes every Friday night. This article can become why I loved rental stores more than about VCRs in no time. The point being my VCR got a lot of use and it was a $40 machine when I bought one in 1998 for my self.

My Friends Kirk, Xtine, had this to say respectively

Xtine —–“The very first movie I ever watched on a VCR was the original Ghostbusters. Not a scary movie I know, but there was one party that made me jump. It was when I took too long in the kitchen getting a snack and the “Pause” feature on the VCR had timed out. I wasn’t expecting the movie to stop and the TV to blare some random show loudly. Thank you VCR for teaching me two things. First, that watching a movie on my own sofa is the most comfortable thing ever. Second, to be efficient in the kitchen always!”

Kirk—-“it was an interesting device; movies at home, on your own time, was a great novelty, and being able to record (both to time shift commercial stuff, or maybe even rent a camcorder) was empowering. Thanks Mr. Rogers!” Mr. Rogers on Mr Rogers neighbor hood on PBS would show us how a VHS works in one episode

Bill Fulkerson from the Outside the Cinema—-“I still own one. I don’t use it often but I fire it up every now and then to watch The Friday the 13th movies.” Bill show and more information can be found here https://www.facebook.com/outsidethecinema/?pnref=lhc

I remember the many times using the machine to try and record episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Comedy Central back in 1991- 1994. A couple years later the DVD player would emerge.   Its been the end of an era for a while they are still sold at Best buy, Walmart, and other retail chains, VHS collecting has made these machines very much in demand. Its sad to see it end.

 

 

 

 

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11

Posted in Comic Books, horror, Horror Babes, Monsters, news, vampires with tags , , on July 19, 2016 by chrisdsav

Announcement from Dark Horse Comics

SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 19, 2016 — Dark Horse is excited to announce the next installment in Joss Whedon’s Buffy comics series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11. The talented comics duo of Christos Gage (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10, Avengers Academy) and Rebekah Isaacs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10, Angel & Faith) returns with more shenanigans from the Scoobies.

After overcoming the struggles of Season 10, Buffy and the Scoobies give themselves a well-deserved break from fighting evil. Unfortunately, the momentary peace comes to a screeching halt when a supernatural disaster wreaks havoc on the citizens of San Francisco, and the gang is forced to save the world from imminent doom, again.

Buffy Season 10 writer Christos Gage described his excitement for the next season of the beloved supernatural thriller: “Buffy fans have been wonderful to Rebekah and me throughout Season 10, so I couldn’t be more excited to keep our creative team together for Season 11! True to form, Joss is not content to just rest on his well-earned laurels, so Season 11 will shake things up with a story that’s shorter, bigger, more epic, and presents what may be the greatest challenge Buffy and the Scoobies have ever faced. We hope the readers will enjoy the ride!”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 will have twelve issues total. The first issue goes on sale November 23, 2016

. Karl Moline (Fray) will create a special Dark Horse 30th Anniversary variant cover for the first issue

The movie is not good BUT its not RoboCop or The Nightmare on Elm Street Remake.

MV5BNzAzODQ1NTk4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODIwOTIwODE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_

I’m not going over the plot of this movie its the same as the last two. The jokes fall flat and people seems to be zombies going to this movie so glad they have a Ghostbusters movie and not even caring how bad it is. Why are people laughing at this movie. Its one giant fart joke from beginning to end./ You have a villain that is the worst example of screen writing ever. He is a whiny little mommy boy bell hop who feels society owes him something. This is not Gozer or Vigo at all. The special effects look like crap they look like something from that Disney Haunted Mansion movie. So much Blue CGI it looks like garbage. I was so board watching this I could not wait for it to be over.  Leslie Jones was the same two jokes a loud screaming Black Woman, Melissa was so toned down in this movie,  but made the typical  Fat GIRL joke of the movie, as the one who loves food and complains how her food is delivered all the time. Kristen Wig tried to be the straight woman and it came across as boring. Kate McKinnion as the inventor was quirky and weird and funny ill give it that.

The men are all cowards and ass holes and morons in this film. Not one great character exists among them. I don’t know why Chris Helmsworth the receptionist  was written as such a moron.  The cameos by the original cast are a mixed back Murray looks board walking thru his lines and Sigourney Weaver seems the only one interested in being in the movie.

This was a soul less attempt at a cash grab and that’s all. It made money guess what The Back to the future and Gremlins remakes are coming and they will suck as much some as the past remakes we have had did.

Review – Ghostbusters

Posted in ghosts, horror, remakes, Reviews with tags on July 14, 2016 by chrisdsav

NEED TO CLARIFY BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR MINDS

My Friend and fellow film critic who knows his films puts his review on Ghostbusters,  make it your opinion don’t be afraid of what people think of you over a movie. ITS ONLY A MOVIE.  ( go look up people calling out and miss using the words sexism and anti feminism to describe their stupidity on the internet. If you don’t want to go see this movie, that’s fine you don’t have too. People like James Roulf the Angry Video game Nerd and Andre Black Nerd Rant were attacked because they were one way or the other about this movie. To be labeled a sexist or anti feminist cuz you don’t want to see it is so …aaaghhhh  )

FILM REVIEW
GHOSTBUSTERS
With Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth. Written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig. Directed by Paul Feig. Rated PG-13 for supernatural action and some crude humor. 116 minutes.

Why are we getting a GHOSTBUSTERS remake (or “reboot” if you prefer)? For no good reason except the studio owned the rights and they could do it. It beats coming up with something original, right?

The movie is a mess from start to finish, not counting the green slime. From the opening jokes that fall flat in quick succession to an incoherent third act that has so many loose threads that a musical production number gets dumped into the closing credits, it’s clear that the people in charge had no idea what they were doing. Putting director Paul Feig in charge, perpetrator of “Bridesmaids,” “The Heat,” and “Spy,” guarantees that the comedy…
