Movie: Madman (1982)

“At a summer camp in the woods, Max, one of the counselors, decides to regale the campers and other counselors with a frightening tale of a local serial killer, Madman Marz. As the story goes, if his name is uttered above a whisper, he will return to the area to kill. Unimpressed and unafraid, an impudent teen, Richie, feels compelled to test the legend — despite the deadly consequences. Within moments, Madman Marz is back again for blood.

How To Watch This Film: DVD/Blu-ray, Netflix, HBO GO, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, or however you can muster it


The Girl in the Spider’s Web (2018) – Fairly mediocre rebootquel of David Fincher‘s far superior film. I wish they let him continue with the series instead of dumping out this film instead. 3/5

Timeline (2003) – A half-assed time travel flick from Richard Donner that I never heard of. Paul Walker and Gerard Butler travel to 1357 France. It’s got a pretty solid cast, but apparently a lot was cut from the book and final version of the film. Michael Crichton hated the adaptation. 2.5/5

Fast & Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) – An over the top buddy cop film with a super soldier bad guy. It’s entertaining and also kinda boring at the same time. Vanessa Kirby is easy on the eyes though. 3.5/5

Heavy Metal Parking Lot (1986) –  Ok this isn’t a full blown movie, but it is 17 minutes of pure unadulterated heavy metal tailgating action from a 1986 Judas Priest concert in Maryland. 5/5

Shazam! (2019) – I’d say it’s the best of the DCEU films thus far and even then on my second watch it really rehashes a lot of other superhero movies we’ve seen before. But it really is Zachary Levi that sells the whole film. 3.75/5
