I’ve had Disney + for 20 minutes. Here’s what I think.

In September, Disney had a solid offer: order three years of the new streaming app Disney + at a reduced rate, and pay for it now. I bit. I don’t regret it. Even at its regular price ($6.99 a month), it’s worth it. Here’s how my first 20 minutes with the Disney + app went: […]

If you like things that are funny, you should see the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live show.

The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour came to my town (well, a neighboring community that I had no compunctions about driving to), and it was hilarious. It was spot-on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

And there were many of those movies (like Critters, Gremlins, Ghoulies, […]

The Banana Splits movie takes 1960s nightmare fuel and makes a Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie out of it.

When you can’t get the rights to “Five Nights at Freddies,” you compromise. You get the Banana Splits. Already kind of creepy, the 1960s kid’s show characters are back, and they’re malfunctioning. Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky are back in this blood-soaked tale that takes the conceit–that the show is now a popular kid’s variety […]
