“Breaking Dawn” is the most frightening film I’ve seen this year by Avril Good

November 28, 2011


I have a confession to make. I have read the Twilight series. That’s not the confession; I’ve heard enough people scathingly ridiculing the books in hip coffee shops on Brunswick Street to know that it’s okay to have read the first chapter or so. No, my confession is that I read the Twilight series, and […]

Quest for the Worst Movie Ever Made: Part 2 (This Time, It’s Biblical!) by Matilda Dixon-Smith

November 21, 2011


Ever wondered what melding pornography and romantic-comedies would look like? No need to wonder anymore, readers, such a film exists for your viewing pleasure.

We’ve all seen the dancing plates and the French candlesticks, so just […]

The Quest for the Worst Movie Ever Made: Part 1 by Matilda Dixon-Smith

January 11, 2011


I feel like I have been on a search for the worst movie of all-time for a while now. I have seen some SHOCKING movies. I have seen Band Slam with Vanessa Hudgens (which was actually pretty entertaining). I’ve seen Letters to Juliet (Chris Egan was not meant for the films, or to pretend he […]
