The Worst Shallows Review Ever!

The Worst Shallows Review Ever!

The Shallows is a 2016 film featuring a surfer lady getting lost in Mexico or some foreign country while being attacked by Jabberjaw. Was the shark some sort of monster? I don’t think so, at least not with how many sharks are killed a year by humans. Now I am not trying to make some sort of vegan statement because if provided with the opportunity I would eat a shark. It’s probably delicious. As for the film, pretty much nothing happens…

The Killer Robots! Crash & Burn: Movie Review

The Killer Robots! Crash & Burn: Movie Review

BadAssGeek here. The rock and roll fable holds a small but well-loved place in film. The 70s brought us movies like Tommy and Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park. The 80s and 90s brought us films like Pink Floyd The Wall and the bombastic costumed carnage of Gwar. Seriously, if you’ve never seen Gwar quit reading now and look em up.  I’ll be here when you get back. Now we have a new entrant into the rock movie pantheon….

The Conjuring 2: Spoilery Thoughts

I already wrote a review of The Conjuring 2, but I have some questions that would spoil the movie, so I opted to put them in a different post.  Because I am a kind soul. 1. Lorraine was able to defeat the demon – Valak – by saying his name, screaming other things and condemning him back to hell.  Or something.  She only knew his name because Valak told her his name in a vision.  “I know his name, I…
