Weekly schlock and more 80's

If Goonies was never made would Monster Squad have been a bigger hit?

The Monster Squad - Poster

Another film from my tumultuous past The Monster Squad. This film is centered around a group of pre-teens that have a little tree house where they discuss their love of monster movies, books, comic, breakfast cereals that have anything to do with monsters. They are called…The Monster Squad and it is all fairly harmless. Well that is until Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, Wolfman and Gillman/Man-phibian/Creature from Black Lagoon, who are all very real, arrive in town. Why are they in town? Well see there is this magic amulet that can open a portal to destroy the world. This portal opens every 100 years and of course that is happening soon.  Well that is if the Monster Squad along with help for the diary of the monster hunter Van Helsing and scary German guy, don’t stop them first!

Summer distraction



The summer is 1/3rd of the way complete. I have not touched a paintbrush in well over a month. I have models almost complete and a few more in the pip ready to go. Why?

I guess it is a terminal case of summer time crap. I have the various parts of the yard to build and shape to make it a glorious haven for nature’s creatures. I have my weekend work schedule ramping up this coming month due to various vacations. My nightly downtime has me returning to the Capital Wastelands.

Fallout 3. Yup that is the real crux of this problem. Well that  and E3 footage of Fallout 4. After seeing that I had a hankerin’ to go kill some radscorpions, shoot some super mutants inhale a steady stream of Jet and set those ghouls bothering Tenpenny on fire! By the beard of Zeus I missed this game!

Days of the Dead 2015 convention!

Days of the Dead 2015 in Indianapolis. Our first horror convention ever. 

We went in not knowing what to expect. By the time we left we had had a damn good time. We grabbed some merch, some photos, met some people and actors from our favorite horror flicks.

 "Howdy Folks! You like blood? Violence? Freaks of nature? Well then, come on down to Captain Spaulding's Museum of Monsters and Mad-Men. See the Alligator Boy, ride my famous Murder Ride. Most of all, don't forget to take home some of my tasty fried chicken! Ha ha! It just tastes so damn good! "

Holy crap we met Sid Haig! Captain Spaulding!
I just wish I could have asked him a bunch of jackassy questions.

BEST! MOVIE! EVER!

If the poster isn't enough,.........
........ just watch this.

 Hooper! CannonballRun! Smokey and the Bandit! What a pedigree!


Sometimes you shouldn’t go back and other times is fantastic to relive a bit of the past.

Megaforce is one of those two moments.

As a lad I saw this movie and was taken aback by it. I wanted a motor cycle with missiles and machine guns on it! Who wouldn’t!? Then again I was big G.I.Joe kid and this movie was right in my wheel house.

As an adult I knew going in this would be terrible and squash my fond memories of the film. That being said I sat down to watch a movie I only remembered for the action bits.

Megaforce is an elite military organization the works for the free countries of the world (this is the 80’s so we all know who the good and bad guys are). Their claim to fame seems to be high tech vehicles, recruitment from all the good guy countries (kind of Men in Black) a giant computer room, holograms and sweet sweet spandex uniforms! They are called upon to help the Republic of Sardun from being attacked by the nearby country of Gamibia. Where are these countries? Who cares this is not about geography, it is about action! Meanwhile, the “evil” (due to looking like Fidel Castro I guess) Duke Gurerra and his armored tank division continue to attack the Republic of Sardun. It is up to Commander Ace Hunter (what a sweet ass name and hair) and Megaforce to stop the “evil” Duke Gurerra.
