Marjoe (1972)

Hugh Marjoe Ross Gortner first became known — way back in the late 1940’s — as the youngest person to be ordained as a preacher. Just four years old, he possessed an innate ability to speak sermons and lead revival meetings. By the time he was sixteen, the Gortner family had taken around three million dollars from the […]

Vanishing Point (1997)

Did you know their was a remake of Vanishing Point? It’s okay. No one does. The FOX-TV Network—back when they were in the business of creating original content, in lieu of reality programming and weirdo-dorky Seinfeld (sorry, Sam) wanna-be shitcoms—retooled this 1971 classic made by their sister film studio. Ack! No one should be poking […]

REPOST: Bobbi Jo and the Outlaw (1976)

Or Marjoe Gornter (Starcrash and The Survivalist) with a knocked up girlfriend half his age? How about a movie where they’re bedding and cheating […]

ATTACK OF THE CLONES: Redux

So, in commemoration of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker being released this […]

The Survivalist (1987)

Let’s not beat around the radioactive bush and go straight to the Def-Cons. The Def-Con 3 caveat: Contrary to the VHS cover, the Russians do not “strike back.” Not by missiles. Not by a Red Dawn or Invasion USA invasion. It’s just Americans fighting Americans. There’s no Russian collusion; the enemy is within: his name […]
