Sci-Fi

Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid (2010)

The B movie is alive and well on the internet. Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid was pointed out to me by someone here. Is it all you’d expect for $20,000 (according to imdb) when you got some camcorders from Best Buy and saved the receipt to return them before 30 days for a refund? You bet. My favorite is a villian wearing golf shoes with spurs. This movie needs a cult following if it doesn’t already have one. youtube

Adventure

Starcrash (1978)

A Science Fiction movie with a bunch of hair perms, scantily clad smoking hot girls and David Hasselhoff. It’s basically a Star Wars knock off. No smoking. You could start an Aquanet explosion.
