My home Con was cancelled this weekend (not that I was going anyway because they were being mask-Nazis, but I was going to go hang out in town enjoying myself while the rest of the fam went) and then got some nasty don’t-go-outside weather, so a good weekend for movies here. Had some friends over […]Read more "Sitting in front of the fire watching crap."
So what did everyone watch this weekend? This was the first weekend in at least a month that I had nothing scheduled, so I declared a plan-free mental health weekend, where my only goal was to go nowhere and do as little as possible. It actually managed to knock a few things off my long […]Read more "My I Aten’t Ded Post-Weekend Post."
You’ll be shocked to hear that I’m basically too damn busy/lazy/pissed off at the COVIDiocy to have much energy for long-form blogging these days. However I’ve found new home on MeWe and am keeping up with regular short takes there. I have a few fun group contributors too, and would love to add you to […]Read more "GalaxyJane is Now on MeWe"
For folks that think all Bs must be genre films, I offer up this 62 minute Monogram cheapie, designed to fill the bottom half of double bill alongside something much more artistic from one of the majors. It caught my eye for combining two of my favorite things, murder mysteries and cruise ships (OK, technically […]Read more "Jane’s Quick Take on: Mystery Liner (1934)"

More 80s movie goodness, although oddly, not a horror movie. But there is a devil in the video, so I’ll allow it. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster – Burn In Hell"
[I know, 80s movie tie-ins two days in a row, but somehow I missed this one last time around and ended up featuring it out of season. I really had fun with this and wanted to feature it properly. -2020 Jane] Remember my Halloween Monster Music Video Countdown from a few years back? Well, I […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Flashback Friday Edition"
More 80s movie tie-in goodness. The Dudes of Wrath were actually a briefly-lived (a couple songs on a single soundtrack) supergroup consisting of Paul Stanley (KISS), Desmond Child (better known as the writer of half the power-ballad-hair-band hits of the time than as a vocalist), Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard), Guy Mann-Dude, Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Shocker"
I have to say that the 80s produced the absolute best horror movie tie-in videos. Often brief works of visual art in their own right (although not so much here) as well as a great way to get the word of a new flick out to nerdy teen horror fans (were there any other kind […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Trick Or Treat"
