Sorely Tempting 1

Apparently, someone is almost as big a fan of hilariously awful made-for-TV movies as I am: A double-feature of 10.5 and Category 6: Day of Destruction is now available on DVD. And as you’ll note at the bottom, you can buy that DVD and the DVD of 10.5: Apocalypse for under $25. That may be, ...

10.5.2: Oh, Man… 1

Ok, I’m only half an hour in, but I’m already laughing my ass off. The effects are spectacularly horrible, Kim Delaney should demand her money back from her plastic surgeon, and anyone who read a fucking word about the tsunami that hit southeast Asia knows that the first 10 minutes of the movie are complete ...

10.5.2 2

It begins tonight. It’s already begun on the east coast. My full review will go up when I watch both parts Thursday night, since I’m watching the Desperate Housewives finale tonight, the 24 finale tomorrow night, the House finale Tuesday night, and the Lost finale Wednesday night. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it ...

10.5.2: The Dreckening

It’s coming Sunday. And it’s going to be spectacularly awful.

10.5.2: The Airdate 5

Set your TiVos, kids 10.5: Apocalypse is coming May 21 and 23rd to NBC. The plot, believe it or not, is even more ludicrous: In a desperate bid to save lives – and the country – President Hollister (Beau Bridges) calls once again upon one of the nation’s top seismologists, controversial scientist Dr. Samantha Hill ...

Attention Bad TV Movie Fans

Everything’s not lost. Despite NBC’s decision to push back 10.5: Apocalypse, thanks to CBS, you will still have something to see this November in the genre of Bad Made-For-TV Disaster Movies. That’s right, from the makers of the stultifyingly awful (as opposed to spectacularly awful, which 10.5 was) Category 6: Day of Destruction comes Category ...

10.5.2 Update: The Scheduling Move Of DOOOOM 2

From the fine folks over at the The Futon Critic, an update on the forthcoming sequel to my favorite bad TV movie of all time: 10.5 APOCALYPSE (NBC) – The Peacock has quietly bumped the “10.5” sequel from its November sweeps schedule. Originally slated for November 27-28, the project will now air sometime in 2006. ...

Thought

While re-watching the true masterpiece of the Hilariously Bad Disaster Movie genre, TV subdivision, 10.5, a thought occured to me. Disaster movies are about the only genre in film that makes an effort to have ethnically diverse casting (and unlike action and horror movies, actually keep nonwhite characters alive for more than the first third ...

10.5.2: The Revenge

After NBC attacked the West Coast with a hilariously awful earthquake movie, you knew it was only a matter of time before another network picked up on the idea. But I don’t think anyone thought it’d be picked up on in as ridiculous a fashion as Category 6: Day Of Destruction. God bless CBS for ...

Advice

Do not waste your money on The Day After Tomorrow, as I did this evening. I did not think it would be good. I knew it would be bad. I thought it would be so bad it was funny. Alas, it was so bad it just made me want to tear my eyes out. See ...
