Attack of the Crab Monsters: Mighty Movie's Temple of Bad

Dan Persons | Posted 07.13.2014 | Entertainment
Dan Persons

Even if you've never seen Attack of the Crab Monsters, you probably still know it by heart. It is the perfect model of the drive-in B-movie, a sublime mix of papier-mache creatures, suggestive sexuality, and dodgy science, with just a bit of cold-war philosophy thrown in for tang.

Well, here's a ticklish situation: Is Karate-Robo Zaborgar a bad film, or a good film trying to be bad, or a film so good at being bad that it's actually bad?

Why Is Everyone Cheering For The Wolf Of Wall Street?

Donna Highfill | Posted 04.03.2014 | Fifty
Donna Highfill

Maybe I don't understand what courage is anymore. I sat in a movie theater recently, listening to people of all ages applaud and cheer when the key character was drinking excessively and stealing other people's money. I don't think either one of those things is worthy of cheering. Am I wrong? Did I get taken by the Rocky montages of the 80s, believing that courage comes from facing fear?

Dan Persons | Posted 06.24.2013 | Entertainment
Dan Persons

That's the big take-away from Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky, an ultra-violent Hong Kong martial arts film that doesn't so much tell a story as throw buckets of gore around and hope that viewers will, Rorschach-like, synthesize meaning from the incoherent mess.

Sit back, unwrap your Big Mac, pour a nice, hearty bowl of Skittles, open up a can of Coca-Cola, keep a roll of Brawny paper towels handy, shut off your Sears power tools, and join Andrea Lipinski, Kevin Lauderdale, and I as we tackle one of cinema's true monuments of awfulness.

Temple of Bad clerics Andrea Lipinsky, Kevin Lauderdale and I shed our vestments and put on our widest lapels to celebrate this landmark of singing, skating, and really glowy people, a movie with a theme song so infectious that you will never be able to shake it from your memory.
