Scored the complete works of Tarantino recently for less than £25. I’ve seen 5 of these, so I’m perfectly balanced to figure out what this nonsense is all about!! #quentintarantino #bluraycollection #bluray #dvdcollection #dvd #physicalmedia #physicalmediacollector #pulpfiction #resevoirdogs #hatefuleight #killlbill #onceuponatimeinhollywood
Finishing the Complete Twelfth Season (2022)
Season 12 was a season punctuated with several rather big moments for the channel, ones im very proud of. It was the season that helped us ease into monthly streaming, it was the season to feature our longest review (“Sweet Insanity” – Thanks to Peckingforgoodtv for being a good sport on that one!) it featured probably our most mainstream review (I Spit on Your Grave) and our most obscure review (Santa’s Pocket Watch)
It saw the wind down of “The Comedy Dining Experience” and probably our crowning achievement for the year, as not only did we smash through 150k views (for the 2nd time I might add) BUT! we also FINALLY hit 1000 subscribers after over 6 years of weekly uploads. It’s been a hell of a road, but its one im fiercely proud of, and one that I simply couldnt have done without the help of our wonderful viewers and the many friends and creators i’ve made along the way.
Latter in the year seasons (basically the September – December stint) are always a little less fun for me. Don’t get me wrong! they ARE still very fun, otherwise I wouldnt do them the way I do. But with the pressure to do spooky stuff at Halloween and Christmassy stuff at Christmas, it usually means that at least 8-10 of my 16-18 slots for the year are eaten up with a rigidly structured type of arrangement. one of the things I really love about the February – June/July run is the fact that it’s in total free flow. I can plan the season out months in advance, but all it takes is one release to creep into my radar and I can easily swap it into the schedules with no problem. With the September – December run, im not as carefree.
But this year was a little bit different, Being able to collab with so many wonderful people across this season really helped to keep things fresh and keep my interest on the ball. The fact this years halloween special theme was “Poundland Horror” meant I wasnt rigidly stuck to one genre for a full month and could relax into the season quite nicely. and even the christmas specials were perked up somewhat by being able to tackle movies like “Winterbeast” with George. It just made things a lot less dogmatic and more, just for the fun of it. Yes I didnt get to do everything I wanted to do this season, but I got like; 95% of it done, and thats good enough for me!
Of the two seasons that made up 2022, Season 11 was probably the most fun to work on, but Season twelve was almost certainly the most rewarding. The former was the last hurrah to my old system, and the latter was me basically relearning how to do my trade having upgraded all my kit over the summer. and Season 12b (Im not calling it Season 13, theres no way im cursing this thing right out of the gate) is going to be the biggest and longest season we’ve ever done to date! I honestly cant wait for you guys to see it when we premiere on Feb 3rd 2023!
All I can say is, Season 12 was a fun one, and I hope 2023 keeps that postive energy coming!
I was out of action for most of yesterday with a migraine. I’m more or less back on the horse today (bit spaced) so I’m taking it easy…These arrived over the weekend though! Which has definitely perked things up a bit! #bluraycollection #bluray #physicalmediacollector #physicalmedia #Halloween #Halloweenends #quentintarantino #creaturefromtheblacklagoon #horror
The ‘Drug Stories’ Vol. 1 (part 2) Comedy Dining Experience
First part here
Dan, Ben and Triv finish what they started with ecclectic zeal as we finish off the wonderful AGFA driven ‘Drug Stories’ set (Merged version coming soon too!)
The ‘Goldeneye’ (1995) Comedy Dining Experience
THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULDNT BE LIVING HEREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
The ‘Starship Troopers’ (1997) Comedy Dining Experience
In a change up to the formula (mainly because non of us could be bothered to sit through Starship Troopers for 2 hours when I wasnt really all that interested in it and Ben and Triv were both kinda ‘Meh’ too) we have a round table discussion on ‘Starship Troopers’ discussing the themes, what worked, what didnt and overall giving our feelings on the symbolism.
after 2 years of being egged on to do it, I did. and im so SO sorry.
Silent Night Deadly Night 2 – (1987)
And with that! we’ve reached the end of another season, and once again we’re revisitng the ‘Silent Night Deadly Night’ franchise with probably the most infamous entry of the entire franchise.
Yes, we’re doing the ‘GARBAGE DAY’ movie. and honestly, this one was really quite the blur from a behind the scenes standpoing on the show, the last 3 months of the year were frankly pretty crazy and (to my admitted shame) this one ended up kind of being bashed out in a bit of a haze while dealing with a load of personal issues around work. Nothing too awful mind…just jarring. it’s something im still kind of dealing with now even, but I’ve gotten a bit of a better grasp on it. for now at least.
Anyway; enough of my problems! Silent Night Deadly Night 2! the film that made me wonder how on EARTH they followed up on this with 3 other movies. and…well, you’ll find out exactly HOW they did in a year or two. because…im not touching those movies again for a while let me tell you now!
Anyway! merry christmas and all that! we’ll be back in february! all my love x
A Wrestling Christmas Miracle – (2020)
Not content with ONE dose of Ken Del Veccio madness in the form of ‘A Karate Christmas Miracle‘ I just HAD to keep digging and eventually wind up watching it’s spiritual sequel. Because of COURSE I did.
What I will say for this film is, across the board, its better than the first film technically. that still doesnt save it from being demented in my opinion.
I really hope they make this duology a trilogy some day, as Id love to get a nice tryptic going with these films. I dunno…maybe ‘A Ballet Christmas Miracle’?, ‘A Golfing Christmas Miracle’? hmm…how about ‘A Kickboxing Christmas Miracle’? that one could have legs (LITERALLY!)
In either case, the madness is over…for now, and I can finally get back to covering other christmas specials like ‘The Christmas Consultant.’ *shudders*
