My new review of NICK FURY: AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D (1998) is now online at Fun Time Internet.
To commemorate the theatrical release of Marvel’s The Avengers, I thought I’d take a look back to a time when Marvel’s movies were the proverbial red haired middle child compared to DC’s mega hit Superman (1978-1987) and Batman (1989-1997) franchises.
This low budget TV movie stars David Hasselhoff(?!) as the cynical cyclopean super spy. As a movie, it’s an utter failure. But as a backdoor pilot , its surprisingly successful. I wish we could’ve lived in a world where Hasselhoff fought neo-Nazi super villains every week on basic cable. But instead we got “Baywatch Nights.”

My new review of STARCRASH (1975) is now online at Fun Time Internet.
Featuring Space Amazons, a sexist robot with a Texan accent, and David Hasselhoff, this Spaghetti Sci-Fi romp may very well be the Star Wars ripoff to end all Star Wars ripoffs.
Here’s a clip:
One of my all time favourite guilty pleasures. Check it out!
Welcome to LACKLUSTER VIDEO, a retrospective review of B- and Z-grade cinematic stinkers, infamous bombs and forgotten trash. I’ll also review the occasional underrated classic and obscure gem, just to prove I’m not a hate-filled troll. My name is Bo Swidersky, resident film critic for Fun Time Internet, and I’ll be your guide down the dank and dingy depths of movie mediocrity. I love terrible movies. And I love forcing other people to watch them. Most would call that sadistic, but I call it… yeah, I guess it is pretty sadistic.
Speaking of sadism, legendary director Stanley Kubrick reportedly watched any and every film he could get his hands on – good or bad, especially the bad as they served as a textbook case of what not to do. In that case, it’s time to buy up some binders and Bic’s, I’ll start posting reviews in a couple of days.
