Jason and Shawn versus Saturday Morning Massacre and Storage 24

Saturday Morning Massacre

Jason: This is Scooby Doo for grownups. How so? Well, a group of meddling kids drive around in a van with their dog and debunk hauntings etc. One's a stoner, another's a rich dude, his hot girlfriend and there's a nerdy cute girl. Sounds pretty Scooby Doo to me! How much you enjoy Saturday Morning Massacre depends on how much you dig what it's selling. I liked the nods to Scooby Doo – including a chase scene ripped right from the cartoon – and enjoyed the massacre portion too. And yah, Josephine Decker has great legs. Worth the watch as a curiosity. And it helps to like Scooby Doo too! Good.

Shawn: I thought this was alright. It didn’t really leave a lasting impression. Legs. Man, she had great legs….Anyways, was a pretty well made Scooby adventure for adults with all the things you sorta hoped would happen in Scooby Doo, as you aged and began understanding….stuff.. I could almost watch this movie again, and as I think about it, for fun sake, might incorporate this into the Halloween season watchables. Gonna have to give this one a Good. Thanks for the titties, violence, scares sand drug-enduced Scooby Doo…

Storage 24

Jason: This could have been a great, low-budget monster flick, but instead we ended up with a boring, talky relationship movie with a monster in it. Epic fail! All the good stuff – except for the hot chicks – is in the second half of the movie. To get there we wade through 45 minutes of some whiny dude complaining about his failed relationship and fighting with his ex. If I'd wanted all this bullshit, I'd of watched a chick flick. This is an Ugly. The first Ugly I've watched in a long time. Even hot chicks and gore couldn't make it a Bad.

Shawn: I fucking hated this movie. I can’t even tell you. Holy shit. Translated without profanity, I loved Girl with the Dragon Tattoo more…and if you are a long-time Basement fan, you know how much that hurts. I don’t know if it was the story, the relationships, the lack of monster…even the final payoff…was more a of a letdown. Dunno. Hated this. UGLY.

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

Run, Bandit, Run: "Bandit: Bandit's Silver Angel" (1994)

  Tuesday rolls around with clear skies, clear lakes, and clear highways.  Along the long stretches Smokey can be found chasing the Bandit... and adventure follows close behind. After his uncle passes away, Bandit finds himself helping a beautiful widow keep their carnival afloat. But all is not as it seems with this carnival.  It hides a secret... a shiny, glittery secret that others would kill to keep for themselves... " Bandit: Bandit's Silver Angel " sees the 1990's TV movie series based on the original "Smokey and the Bandit" films come to a close.  And to be honest, it wasn't a bad send-off for the series. Brian Bloom once again brings a pleasant charm and playfulness to the character of Bandit.  While Donald O'Connor didn't get a lot of screen time, he brought quite a bit of humour to his character as Uncle Cyrus, and gave a solid impression that he's one of the few characters that could easily outwit Bandit.  Traci Lords in the role o
