Revisiting Top Secret! - the 1980s' most underappreciated comedy

28 July 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We rewatched the classic 1980s comedy, Top Secret! It took surgeons two weeks to wipe the smile off our face...

"Is this the potato farm?"

"Yes, I am Albert Potato"

If you're laughing at the quote above, then it's fair to say that you're already a Top Secret! fan. But if you're wondering what that actually means, then chances are you've missed out on one of the very best comedies that the 1980s had to offer.

Now the classic comedy Airplane!, rightfully, has been the beneficiary of some hugely forensic work, just to try and keep on top of its many, many background jokes. In fact, one DVD edition had a special feature just to point out all the things you may have missed on your first, tenth or fiftieth time around. Turns out there were quite a few in my case.

‘The Walking Deceased’ DVD Review

19 July 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tim Ogletree, Joey Oglesby, Dave Sheridan, Troy Ogletree, Sophia Taylor Ali, Jacqui Holland, Mason Dakota Galyon | Written by Tim Ogletree | Directed by Scott Dow

The Walking Deceased follows a group of survivors from all walks of the apocalypse – an idiotic Sheriff with definite coma-induced brain damage, his hardass son, four squabbling friends forced to survive this zombieland together, and a lonely zombie who just needs love to fully regain his warm body. They all leave their once-safe hideout in search of the rumored Safe Haven Ranch, a refuge untouched by the zombie virus that has ravaged humanity. But despite the comforting name, they discover that this sanctuary may not be as welcoming as advertised.

Ok, so if you haven’t gathered by the title or by that synopsis, The Walking Deceased is a spoof of the zombie genre – more particularly of the fantastic Zombieland, AMC’s The Walking Dead »

Review: The Walking Deceased

19 April 2015 4:41 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’ve always subscribed to the idea that film parodies only work when they’re played straight. When the situation is what brings the laughs, instead of continual references and camera winks, so to speak. Films like the Scary Movie or A Haunted House series never quite did the trick, with turning cliche-filled parts of the films they were poking fun into just a series silly jokes, with no staying power, once the scene was over. What made films like Airplane, The Naked Gun and even Top Secret! or Get Smart work so well, is how straight they were played, almost as if the viewer was the only one In on the joke, making each gag work tremendously well. The Tim Ogletree-written/Scott Dow-directed parody on all things zombie, The Walking Deceased, unfortunately falls into the former category, relying on over the top and continual references to the »

Ten Best: Reasons to watch Superfast!

2 April 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

This laugh-a-minute spoof centres around a not particularly smart or streetwise undercover cop, Lucas White (Alex Ashbaugh), who’s never driven a manual car before, but somehow still manages to infiltrate Vin Serento’s (Dale Pavinski) La gang of illegal street racers. They are Superfast! and they are a little furious; watch as they plot to double-cross La crime kingpin, Juan Carlos de la Sol (Omar Chaparro), who hides his cash in Big Ass Tacos establishment downtown. The gang’s outrageous plan is as daring as it is ridiculous and will see them towing the whole damn restaurant at crazy speeds.

Along for the Superfast! ride is Vin’s slap-dash crew made up of assorted members including; his girlfriend Michelle (Andrea Navedo), who maybe appreciates a beautiful woman even more than Vin, and his sister Jordana (Lili Mirojnick), who finds Officer White’s fondue-eating, face-licking first date irresistable.

'Superfast' Trailer: A 'Fast and Furious' Parody

27 February 2015 5:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

February 27 is recognized in the United States as the official Day of Jokes, which is slightly different from April Fool's Day, as it's about punchlines not hilarious pranks. In celebration of this little known holiday, Arc Entertainment already released the trailer for their The Walking Dead spoof The Walking Deceased. Now, Ketchup Entertainment has debuted their Fast and Furious parody Superfast. We hope you're in a really good mood, cause if you're not, you're going to hate this!

Superfast follows undercover cop, Lucas White, who joins Vin Serento's La gang of illegal street racers. They're fast and they're furious and they plan to double cross &#160La's crime kingpin Juan Carlos de la Sol who hides his cash in a downtown Taco Bell. The gang's outrageous plan is as daring as it is ridiculous and will see them towing the whole damn restaurant, at crazy speeds, half way across the city. »

Fast And Furious Parody Superfast Gets First Trailer

27 February 2015 11:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have made their careers from parodies, coming into their own on Date Movie and Epic Movie, flogging the horse all the way to The Starving Games and the upcoming, or at least proposed, Who the F#@K Took My Daughter?.

This is much the way Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker started out… actually, it’s closer to the way the ended up, with Friedberg and Seltzer’s films being less Airplane! or Naked Gun than Mafia! or An American Carol.

The latest of these spoofs is Superfast, which casts lookalikes for Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in a gag-driven reprise of some of the Fast and Furious series most egregious cliches. Here’s the trailer that I found hanging out, pretty much undisturbed, on Vimeo.

No, I didn’t laugh, but maybe some of that works better in context. And they’re at least swinging at »

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

12 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.

10 Epic Movie Moments That Will Rule 2015

18 January 2015 12:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

For people who love watching movies more than life itself, 2014 was an undeniably exceptional year. Just look at this murderer’s row of instant classics: Guardians Of The Galaxy, Inherent Vice, Under The Skin, The Raid 2, The Babadook and many more.

2014 also gave us plenty of epic movie moments – from Godzilla unleashing his atomic breath down his adversary’s throat to Quicksilver saving the day over the smooth vocal styling’s of Jim Croce’s Time In A Bottle.

2015 is on course to be just as epic. Seeing as though this is the year of such films as Star Wars: Episode VII and The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, it’s pretty much a guarantee that there are going to be plenty of standout moments of epicness. And that’s the topic at hand today.

This list is going to attempt to point out movie moments that are going to rule 2015. Now, »

20 Most Epic Movie Moments Featuring Pro Wrestlers

2 January 2015 12:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

It’s no secret that wrestling involves a great degree of acting, so it comes as no surprise that a number of wrestlers have attempted to make it in the movie business. Indeed, over the years, wrestlers have moved in to acting on an increasingly regular basis – starting most notably in the late ’80s with Hulk Hogan starring in the likes of Rocky III and No Holds Barred, to later efforts by the likes of Randy Savage, Kevin Nash, and The Rock.

While movies featuring professional wrestlers are generally hit or miss, they have nevertheless produced a fair amount of great moments. More specifically, epic moments. Scenes that are so awesome that you find yourself watching YouTube clips of them for absolutely no reason other than to relive the epicness. And that’s the topic at hand today.

At times, picking the films (or wrestlers) for this list was the easy part, »
