    Agreed lol. I don't know why, but I love cheesy movies.

    I and a few friends have a special category: A VBF (Very Bad Film) is something you watch at 3am when you have the flu, or are trashed but not sleepy. No-brain movies that are marginally better than silence.

    When you order and pay for your movies, you have a strong desire to make every one of them something you want to watch.

    Certainly, if you pay for them. Most of my friends have racks of DVDs and VCR tapes, or we watch late-night movie channels on cable.. Some are downloaded from torrent sites, not that I recommend that.

    SharkNATO?
    It was a Cold War film set in Europe?

    As far as TV series go, this one is right up there in my top 5 all time best. Anyone who has not seen any of this series and wants to, I recommend starting with season 1 episode 1 for the best viewing.

    The review below is a bit wordy, but he pretty much says it all.

    Could have fooled me, and yes I did watch Sharknato 2.

    I used to do that sort of thing, but even a good virus checker can't catch all the new stuff that is usually included with free downloads, so yeah! Not a good idea.

    I just finished "Dracula Untold" and "Before I Go To Sleep". I usually don’t care for vampire flicks but this one was pretty good. The other one was Adam Sandler’s "50 Fist Dates", but it was supposed to be suspenseful. It was worth watching, but falls a little short.

    I just watched Dracula Untold also and like you thought it was pretty good. It put a whole new angle on Dracula that was very refreshing after all these years of mostly the same old thing.

    Every once in a while I'm up for this type of movie and it wasn't bad.

    No write ups for this one yet.

    Possibly in a similar vein, and apologies if already mentioned... "I, Frankenstein"... Not bad. I thought it better than IMDB suggests (5.2/10), and it gets a whopping 3% on Rotten Tomatoes!
    Sure, it was never going to win awards, but it passes the time.

    I watched I,Frankenstein some time ago and only vaguely remember it, but I must have liked it because I gave it a good rating.

    Just watched the following movie only on Netflix streaming service. It's new enough that I had to really search for a write up, but the one I found was surprisingly very good. Glad I watched it and can't hardly wait for the series.

    If you wish to review all the reviews go to the following link.

    Do we have any Spartacus the series fans here? I just started watching season 4 episode 1 of 10. It's hard to believe it's gotten gorier than it was in the first 3 seasons, not to mention the nudity and sex. It's damn hard to even imagine living like that.

    I just read where they planned to end the series with season 3 and now I'm watching season 4. Just goes to show you, you can't keep a good series down.

    I didnt know anythang about the comics ether... but it was rated high an the trailer looked fun so i gave it a shot.!!!

    PS--- If you liked the trailer you will like the movie.!!!

    First off... the music was grate/accounts for at least 30% of the movies grateness.!!!
    The charactors was likable... an i discovered that green is a hot skin color.!!!
    I realy liked the strong/bright colors of everthang... it was like bein at a carnival.!!!
    An to top it off... it never seemed to go more than a couple of minutes wit-out some cool humor.!!!

    Im ready for part 2.!!!
