Mini Reviews #11

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011) Director: Mary Lambert Starring: Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, A Martinez An extraordinary case of a film being so bad that it comes full circle to being utterly enjoyable to watch. Debbie Gibson and Tiffany rehash an old eighties pop rivalry as two women fighting both each other and a cast of…

Grace Of Monaco (2014)

Long time readers of Oh! That Film Blog will remember the fateful day last September when I, for the love of film criticism, forced myself to endure the cinematic car crash that was 2013’s poorly judged and even more poorly received Diana. Nightmares of the utterly cringeworthy event are still had to this day, and…

22 Jump Street (2014)

It has been two years since the cinematic remake of nineteen eighties police procedural 21 Jump Street hit the big screen and surprised everybody with its glorious self awareness and unreserved comic satire. The film really hit the sweet spot in terms of nostalgia, reverence for the source material and struck gold with the chemistry…

A Million Ways To Die In The West (2014)

Let me begin by stating that I am a huge fan of the majority of Seth MacFarlane’s work, from Family Guy to American Dad to The Cleveland Show. His special talent for pop culture referencing and outwardly base yet inwardly intelligent humour is something that appeals to me and is prevalent in all of his…

Godzilla (2014)

A little late to the party as usual, but today was the day I finally caught up with Godzilla, Gareth Edwards’ leap in to the big time after garnering widespread acclaim for his small budget science fiction picture Monsters in 2010. Something many critics praised Edwards for in this first feature was his conviction for…
