January 22nd 2016, Norris Auditorium, Northwestern University – Once again I took my favorite seat, (second row, second seat from the left) curled up under my fuzzy blankie (to hide my personal Facebook updating during the event), and settled in for 24 more hours of the best of the worst. What I lacked in theme […]Read more "B-Fest 2016 – More Crap Happens"
Note: All photos herein were taken by me. I tried to remember to ask folks if it was OK to share them in this venue, but I know I missed a few people. If you are featured here and would prefer not to be, please let me know and I will remove you. Honestly, I […]Read more "It’s the Most Nerdi-Ful Time of the Year: MarsCon 2016"

And our annual pilgrimage to Dallas comes round again. Wow, 10 years, that’s a lot of crap movies (over 130 according to the commemorative programs one of the usual gang of psychopaths very kindly produced for the occasion). I didn’t attend my first T-Fest until 2008, so I missed those first three glorious years, but […]Read more "T-Fest 2015: Ten Years of Hokum"
Just some thoughts on a couple of things I’ve seen in recent weeks that don’t rate their own full posts. Possibly mildly spoileriffic, but everything is at least a week past broadcast now. Between went a long way towards showing that not all Netflix original programming is going to be a modern classic. Man, every […]Read more "Random Thoughts: What I’ve Been Watching"
I suppose it’s about time for my much delayed review of last month’s April’s Texas adventures. Things have been a bit weird in Chez Jane this month for ages now, but I really have no excuse for not putting this together sooner besides inertia. Ah, the power of procrastination. I’ve had this review 80% complete […]Read more "Tween-Fest 2015"
Big dumb summer popcorn fun. But first, previews: Ant-Man – Nothing to say about this one that I didn’t already say here. The Gallows – Looks like another found-footage cheapie full of jump scares. Lame. The Last Witch Hunter – Looks like stupid good fun, with too much CGI. Rather like today’s feature then, except […]Read more "At the Movies: Why The Rock is San Andreas’s Real Villain"
Some of you may remember me talking about this here back in April, when the promotional video starring the Hoff was released. Today I happened to see that the full 30 minute version of Kickstarter-backed 80s action film parody Kung Fury has officially been made available for free via YouTube. You can watch it right […]Read more "Kung Fury – Full Movie Now Available"
I think all of us who have somehow glommed on to Bad Movies as a hobby all have certain things we keep on the shelf to trap the unwary. Things so gloriously terrible that their very existence defies expectation. So of course we look for any opportunity to inflict them on our fellow man. I […]Read more "Pet Bad Movies: Never Too Young To Die"
Judging from the fact that I’ve received it from a couple of different sources already, I expect many of you have already seen this totally awesome video since it made it’s appearance a few days back: If not, give it a look, I’ll wait. Done? Excellent. This is so dead-on, that were it not for […]Read more "Notes From the ‘Net: Parody Edition"
