May Movie Fever


We all react to media scares in different ways. Some listened to the media coverage about swine flu and decided to give up pork products while others saw this as a great excuse for a BBQ.  It is time to wash our hands of this "swine flu" menance, Movie Roundtable style, by reviewing films with a contagion, plague, or killer virus theme. To this end Cosmic Cinema in conjunction with Mise-en-scene Crypt will be posting a new review of contagion themed movies each week, and we hope to have some friends joining in the fun. To keep up with the updates, please bookmark this page.  To use the banners just right click on the image and copy-and-pate the URL into your review's HTML file.  And remember: Keep washing your hands!

Bad Movies Teenage Caveman

The battle between mutant David and mutant Neil looks more like a boxing match between acromegalic geriatrics whose combination of Tourette's and Alzheimer's makes them yell, "F**k!" each time they are hit or throw a punch (I shudder that I might have just given some rogue designer an idea for a Wii game). I suffered through the whole bout with a smile on my face. One of them had to win, and when they did, the movie was finally going to end.
