Review of “Night of the Lepus” (1972)

Saturday pizza and bad movie night lived up to its name. On the bright side, we’ve been buying enough pizza that we scored a freebie! It tastes better if it’s free, I think. We watched this gem with Svengoolie. Plot:Arizona rancher Cole Hillman’s (Rory Calhoun) land is plagued with rabbits. The rabbit overpopulation resulted fromContinue reading “Review of “Night of the Lepus” (1972)”

Review of “The Keeper of the Pit and the Kon” by Joachim Heijndermans

Plot: The Keeper of the Pit is the boss, and the Kon, the employee. They don’t communicate well. Quite literally, they don’t speak the same language. The Keeper determines when the Pit is lit. This sets fire to a Ring around the city to help keep winter’s chill away and to keep people from freezing.Continue reading “Review of “The Keeper of the Pit and the Kon” by Joachim Heijndermans”

Review of “The Third Visitor” (1951)

For Saturday pizza and bad movie night, we came up with something a little different. Plot: Police identify a body found at the home of Ricard Carling (Karel Stepanek) as that of Carling himself, though the face has been so badly mutilated it’s hard to be sure. The viewer has seen two people come toContinue reading “Review of “The Third Visitor” (1951)”

Review of “Sinister Universe” by R. Michael

Our mission was simple: explore, seek new life, and assess any threat if we found sentient extraterrestrials. After thirteen months in space, I came to realize that “life” is more difficult to define than previously thought.

Review of “Jancy8146 and the RealHouse” by M. E. Garber

Plot:Our hero met Jancy8146 on the WorkerCubeFarm network, where he realizes that Jancy has it all figured out—the whole WhisperNet thing, the reason the people in the nice houses get ahead while the rest, like our hero, down in the Shanties barely get by.

Review of “The Curse of Frankenstein” (1957)

Saturday pizza and bad movie night with Svengoolie. So damn hot. Maybe we should have given up and just had ice cream in an ice Jacuzzi. Plot: (Stop me if you’ve heard this one before….) This movie’s take on Mary Shelley’s book begins with a priest (Alex Gallier) visiting a man (Peter Cushing) in prisonContinue reading “Review of “The Curse of Frankenstein” (1957)”

Review of “Night Visions” by Holley Cornetto

Plot: After eleven and a half years, he realizes he hates his wife. He isn’t sleeping well, and his hairline is receding. He wants a convertible. His wife snores and farts in her sleep. To make matters worse, she wants a baby. Maybe he should have an affair with some Brittany Spears look-alike—not as sheContinue reading “Review of “Night Visions” by Holley Cornetto”

Review of “Incarnate” by Dani Atkinson

Plot:There isn’t too much of a plot to this, only an explanation. A mother talks to her small child—probably an infant—and explains why he is god. He’s not god in the sense that all people are divine, but in the sense that he really once was god: smiting people, blessing people, and all that follows.Continue reading “Review of “Incarnate” by Dani Atkinson”
