The Canadian low-low-low-budget thriller The Final Sacrifice is about a wimpy kid ruining the name of Troy who comes across a drunk who used to be part of the cult that’s chasing him. And I swear our hero, Zap Rowsdower, looks a lot like a guy who used to come into the grocery store I worked for but it’s not him. At least I don’t think so. I’m not sure what the actor is doing these days. The riffing of this movie is one of the favorites among Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans so tonight I bring it to those of you who really should be checking out this series. Enjoy, won’t you?

Friday Night Fights: Blowing Up The World

I try to use the best fights possible during the week for my Friday Night Fight entry while running around the theme. I think blowing up Unicron counts as the best, theme or no theme, and it fits the theme as well. So let’s make Orson Wells explode!

That’s all the introduction I’ve got. Do I need more? Only to fill open space.

“Boom” round 4

BW’s Morning Article Link: Are They Trying To Be More Controversial Than Han Shot First?

Bob Iger gave some more details about the Han Solo…um…solo movie. In a comment that has to either be a goof or is right up there with “the Ninja Turtles are aliens”, Iger seemed to be hinting that Han Solo is not his real name. I hope that’s fixed by the time this article goes live (and I get back to my computer to update) because that’s just really dumb.
