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)"
But I might be off on a bad movie related adventure to share, sometime after I get back. Have a fabulous day of rest, more monsters tomorrow.Read more "A Day off from Monsters"

Note: This was written for a roundtable on another site that fell through due to lack of outside response, so I have graciously stolen it back for your Halloween reading pleasure. With all the great older genre stuff that is turning up on Amazon Prime, it was suggested that everyone pick something suitably weird and […]Read more "Prime Cuts: The Black Sleep (1956)"
I am seeing the writing on the wall for Facebook. Their continued efforts to make the site user unfriendly, only showing you what their algorithm decides you will like in the order they will allow you to see it, and their now near-constant censorship and censuring of anyone who thinks non-approved thoughts mean that it […]Read more "I’m Now on MeWe"
Just a quick check-in today. The stars aligned to give me a fairly great week of in-theater B-Movie and odd TV watching and thought you might have some fun with it. Started off with the fantastic documentary That Guy Dick Miller (2014), currently available streaming on Amazon Prime. Miller was one of the most prolific […]Read more "What I’m Watching"
For those who have been paying attention, possible my very favorite craptastic 80’s B-Actioner is the absolutely bizarre Gene Simmons/John Stamos/Vanity vehicle Never Too Young to Die (no it’s not a vanity picture, it’s a Vanity picture). While I was off on my involuntary beach vacation (minus the ocean), the good folks at Shout Factory […]Read more "“Never Too Young To Die” Finally Gets Official DVD/Bluray Release"
