This week on Awfully Good Movies, I took a look at 1986’s movie version of MY LITTLE PONY, which inexplicably features the talents of Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Cloris Leachman and Madeline Kahn. All I can say is that I apologize to all bronies out there in advance.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I kicked off the show with a look at the 1996 straight-to-video comedy SNOWBOARD ACADEMY, with the woefully wasted trio of Corey Haim, Jim Varney and Brigitte Nielsen. Not even the comforting guffaws of Ernest P. Worrell can make this wannabe CADDYSHACK any good.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I shared my confusion at the VEEEEERY loose 1994 film adaptation of the arcade classic DOUBLE DRAGON. It’s sorta like the game, if you replaced all the high-kicking martial artistry with Robert Patrick sporting a Vanilla Ice haircut. Oh, and Andy Dick. It just ain’t a DOUBLE DRAGON movie without Andy Dick. He was the hardest boss on SUPER DOUBLE DRAGON, for sure.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I celebrated the mechanical massacre of Stephen King’s one and only shot at the director’s chair, MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE. Stephen King + cocaine + killer trucks + Lisa Simpson x Emilio Estevez / music by AC/DC = awesomeness.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I tried to find out why BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES was considered one of the low points of the PLANET OF THE APES franchise, just as DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES raged war at the box office. Who needs Charlton Heston when you’ve got Paul Williams? Seriously: PAUL WILLIAMS. Dude wrote fucking “Rainbow Connection” AND voiced the Penguin. Pay yo’ respects, sucka.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I spotlighted the gloriously cheesy 1983 version of HERCULES with Lou Ferrigno in time for the new Brett Ratner movie. YES, I know the Cinema Snob beat me to it, but I swear to God that the day I completed this episode, the Snob released his episode on it. The two shared jokes that we have in each episode are just coincidences, that’s all. And yes, I am man enough to admit he did a far better job than me. Dude’s one of my inspirations. But I think mine’s pretty solid too! Judge for yourselves.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I reminded people that Michael Bay didn’t do the worst job on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise by reviewing their 1994 musical special TURTLE TUNES. Trust me, my friends, COMING OUT OF THEIR SHELLS was only the beginning of the crappile of TMNT specials.
Previously on Awfully Good Movies, I took a look at Robert Rodriguez’s sequel to a spinoff of the first half of a double feature (phew) MACHETE KILLS. Considering how it and the SIN CITY sequel did with audiences and critics, I suspect SPY KIDS 40: ALAN CUMMING TAKES MANHATTAN will be hitting theaters sooner than later. (Again, I would watch that.)
So in case you people out there on the Tumblrsphere don’t know, I’ve got a series on JoBlo.com where I review the best of bad movies, and this week, I took a look at the original classic that inspired the hit MTV series: TEEN WOLF, starring Michael J. Fox! Watch it and tell us what you think. (NOTE: I’d prefer that you not just say “OMG, u suck”. Go a little bit more in-depth on how much I suck and how I may stop sucking.)
