Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire’s world-destroying battle station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the mysterious Darth Vader. I don’t think I’ve ever watched this film from the angle of evaluating it, cinematically.  Now, I’ve watched it a number of times, of course, because I … Continue reading 13. Star Wars (1977)

Notoriously Bad Films: The Master of Disguise (2002)

I really feel like I took one for the team here, guys.  For those of you that are blessed enough to not be familiar with 2002’s Master of Disguise, I envy you. This film, no doubt, was the nail in the coffin for Dana Carvey’s film career. Strike one is that the film was produced by Happy Madison Productions, a company that, at the time, was … Continue reading Notoriously Bad Films: The Master of Disguise (2002)

Notoriously Bad Films: Super Mario Bros. (1993)

I remember watching this film when I was young and I remember loving it. However, it’s not a film that I have rewatched as an adult, until now. And, it was not easy to find this film online. But, I managed to dig through the internet until I was successful, and I watched this nearly two hour film so you all wouldn’t have to.  For … Continue reading Notoriously Bad Films: Super Mario Bros.

Revisiting Disney: Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

Atlantis: The Lost Empire was one of the first films to come out after the Disney Renaissance Period ended, with only Dinosaur and The Emperor’s New Groove preceding it. It followed along with Disney’s new approach of a non-musical film. It was the first animated science-fiction film that the studio tackled. And, upon a rewatch, the film does hold up, for the most part.  Atlantis … Continue reading Revisiting Disney: Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)
