“29 to Life” Would Be a Better Sentence to Serve Than Watching This Film

Independent films are fine, but sometimes, there are those that should be skipped. Possibly not even mentioned in any kind of conversation or thought of by anyone. When it comes to the independent film, I can handle just about any kind of story, as that’s half the draw. But looks can be deceiving. It’s the chance you take on really, really, really independent films, which is, let’s face it, what this is. You can’t win ’em all.

‘The Nanny Diaries’ Is Still Charming And Cute 10 Years Later

The Weinstein Company


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

Who doesn’t love a good book adaptation? That answer is obvious. While it can pretty much always be agreed upon, that when it comes to adaptations of our favorite books or more obscure ones, audiences want something that looks like what they spent hours reading. However, that’s not always possible. Sometimes it’s just too complicated to get it all in or to simply get it right. Sometimes, there’s too many expectations and comparisons to other adaptations. And sometimes, it could very well be the people in charge of bringing the book to the big screen, who ultimately doom the finished film.

SyFy

Sequels are tough! There’s so much to get right, mostly for the die hard fans, you know, the reason why it’s possible for the movie and franchise to exist at all. For the casual viewer, especially with a TV movie like this, just go in with realistic expectations. For everyone else, it’s full steam ahead!!!

‘Empire Of The Sharks’ Couldn’t Get Anything Right Even With Twitter

SyFy


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

On the eve before the big event, the debut of Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, my favorite network decided to trot out this massive stinker. I was certain that the week would end on a high note. Boy was I wrong. I feel embarrassed. However, it wouldn’t be the first time. I expect a few of these to be less than stellar. I guess two is the total number for this year’s shark themed week. Perhaps next year will feature across the board wins!

‘Toxic Shark’ Surprisingly Didn’t Need Twitter All That Much

SyFy


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

Sharknado Week has gotten back on track!! After the disaster that was Trailer Park Shark, which definitely looks even worse when compared to this movie, I’m proud to say that I enjoyed this movie the way it was meant to be enjoyed! It’s not that I didn’t expect to say that ever again, but I was nervous that it might not occur this year.

Even Twitter Couldn’t Make ‘Trailer Park Shark’ All That Fun

SyFy


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

Sharknado Week rolls on!!

It’s still exciting to get a new shark themed movie, but at the same time, be careful what you wish for. That’s what I keep forgetting. While watching these bad TV movies can, and usually is fun, it’s not a guarantee that you’ll love everything that makes up the finished product. Some things just can’t work for you. They don’t. Because of this, everything else might all be for not.

‘5-Headed Shark Attack’ Is Ridiculous Fun and Exactly What Twitter Is Good For!

SyFy


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

Two heads aren’t good enough, neither are three, so perhaps four, maybe even five? What they’re good for I have no idea, but when it comes to a SyFy Original Movie, more is usually better! It’s certainly more entertaining and that’s all that matters. Well, unless you’re someone who thought taking this movie seriously was a good idea. Perhaps having a viewing buddy is best.
