Matchup of the Day

It’s two tales of science run amok with “Zombie” in the title:

Bloodlust Zombies vs. The Astro-Zombies

Some of you, who keep up on this sort of thing, may have heard that pornographic actress Alexis Texas stars in Bloodlust Zombies.  Now, I’ve seen some legitimate films featuring porn actresses that aren’t too bad.  Like some of the stuff that Traci Lords appears in.  Even Zombie Strippers with Jenna Jameson is almost endurable.  That’s not the case with Bloodlust Zombies.  Alexis Texas doesn’t seem to possess much presence outside a non-porn setting.  Actually, she has a (non-explicit) sex scene in the movie that didn’t exactly light up the screen.  The stale humor and  insipid zombie action is even more disheartening.

Matchup of the Day

It’s Barbara Stanwyck vs. Cleo Moore doing some time in the big house:

Ladies They Talk About vs. One Girl’s Confession

Both Ladies They Talk About and One Girl’s Confession start enticing enough.   Ladies opens with Stanwyck reporting a madman attacking people with a butcher knife to the police over the phone.  It turns out to be a ruse to distract the law while she and her cohorts rob a bank.  When the police suspect her involvement, she draws the attention of the local moral crusader.   He recognizes her from growing up together in the same town and uses his influence to get her out of jail.  That is, until Stanwyck confides in him that she was an accomplice to the bank robbery.  Being a man of integrity, he refuses to keep her secret.   She’s sent off to the joint with vengeance in her heart.  Read the rest of this entry »

Matchup of the Day

Here’s a couple of movies that may upset those with a fondness for man’s best friend:

Dog Soldiers vs. Amores Perros

In the first few minutes of Dog Soldiers, a dog is shot at point-blank range for military training purposes.  The actual shooting is off-screen, but I still felt bad for the canine.  Later, an entire family of werewolves is shot, stabbed, dismembered, burned, impaled and blown up.  Lycanthropes are monsters, of course, and not just innocent animals, so brutally knocking them off is a more defensible act.     Read the rest of this entry »


Bob’s Burgers

add bobs burgers to my Netflix instant queue

It’s the only thing worth watching that comes out on Netflix Instant this week, but I can’t complain too much. Bob’s Burgers took a little bit of time to find its footing, but ever since, it has quickly become one of my favorite shows. The voice cast is unbeatable, making great use out of the amazing H. Jon Benjamin and strong stand-up comedians like Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal and the Silverman sisters. The jokes are fast, surprising and very funny (they also serve the storyline for the most part, unlike some other FOX Sunday cartoons…). Highly recommended. Read the rest of this entry »


Inspired by this ridiculous VHS Coffee Table, let’s include Be Kind Rewind in today’s Match-up of the day and face it off against another Michel Gondry-directed movie that performs similarly on Flickchart: The Green Hornet.
