Batman (1989)

Batman (1989)

The character of Batman is a creation of pre-World War II America. Conceived in 1939, Batman was originally a “pulp” hero, who cared little for killing or maiming those that he went up against. However, the character evolved over time, taking on the nobler attributes that many comic fans have come to expect from the character today.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1990

A mysterious new gang has moved into New York City with one thing in mind…to pillage, pillage, pillage; loot, loot, loot, and intrepid news reporter, April O’Neil has made it her duty to uncover the person or persons behind the series of robberies, but nobody got time to get a good look at the little buggers, and there are very few clues.

The Transformers: The Movie (1986)

Transformers: The Movie

Transformers: The Movie, not to be confused with Transformers the movie, is a timeless tale of redemption, coming of age, and giant robots beating the metallic snot out of each other. The movie takes place in distant future of 2005 - a carefree future where children use hover-boards and cassette tapes, which have replaced the vastly inferior MP3s. The movie opens with Unicron, a metallic, space-anus, with the thundering voice of Orson Wells, munching on...

Field of Dreams (1989)

Field of Dreams

Brothers and sisters, brothers and sisters, gather around as I recount the tale of the Field of Dreams. The supernatural, time-traveling, baseball, family, drama that depicts the return of our left-fielder and savior, Shoeless Joe Jackson. Our tale begins with a small Iowa farmer, Ray Kinsella. Now, Brother Ray is a farmer of corn, and not a good one at that. One day, while tending his crop, Ray began hearing voices. Voices that tell him, “If you build it, he will come.” Now many good Christians in the Bible belt would...

Total Recall (1990)

Total Recall

Total Recall is a sci-fi film about spies, true love, and following one’s dreams of nearly dying a horrible death on the barren surface of a godforsaken planet run by crooks. Still better than Detroit though. The movie begins with Douglas Quaid, a veritable everyman played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s just a regular blue-collar guy, married to Sharon Stone, and made of about 300 pounds of perfectly-sculpted muscle, with that central-north-western Iowa accent that drives the ladies wild. Incidentally, Collin Farrell will...

Surf Nazis Must Die (1987)

Surf Nazis Must Die

What happens when you try to combine the movies Beach Party, Clockwork Orange, and Mad Max, mix in a healthy dose of poor writing, shitty 80s music, and acting that comes from a 4th grade PTA play? You get post apocalyptic opus known as Surf Nazis Mist Die.
