We are only a couple weeks from the release of Wonder Woman and I’m ready for Gal Gadot to take the spotlight and kick ass. This is the first female lead superhero flick of the DC Comics cinematic universe that started with Man of Steel and it is getting very positive buzz from critic’s and early screenings. Gadot is joined by Chris Pine and Robin Wright in an origin story for the Justice League member. Check out the teaser above and see the movie in theaters on June 2nd, 2017.

What is in your pull list this week?


Garbage Pail Kids Movie

One of the weirdest movies from my childhood is airing on COMET TV this month. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is gross out, disgusting, off the wall, zany, bizarre, unsettling, and hysterical. Made in the late 80s, the comedy is adapted for the cult card series (& stickers) of the same name from Topps Company (see examples of below).

Garbage Pail Kids Garbage Pail Kids Garbage Pail Kids

The series was a parody of Cabbage Patch Kids (which basically owned the 80s in terms of children’s dolls/collectibles). 

Official Description: Based on the wildly popular and irreverent trading cards, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie stars Mackenzie Astin (“The Facts of Life”) as a perfectly nice teenager who discovers the Kids… to his disgust! When Dodger (Astin) accidentally releases the Kids from their magical trash can prison, all smell breaks loose. Despite their offensive personal habits – and attitude problems – Dodger soon becomes fond of the Kids. But when Messy Tessie, Foul Phil, Valerie Vomit and the whole misfit crew join his fight against thuggish bullies, their efforts just might land them behind bars at the State Home for the Ugly! (MGM)

The movie has a 0% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but don’t let that stop you from watching. Everyone should check this out at least once, what what better way to do so than for free on an online TV network? Check out Garbage Pail Kids Movie on Saturday, May 13th at 2pm et and on Thursday, May 18th at midnight et.

Fight Night Poster

Looking for something gritty and hard hitting to end the weekend? Fight Night (aka Rigged) is a 2009 action/crime drama from director Jonathan M Dillon and Peace Arch. The flick won the Grand Jury Prize at the Dances with Films festival in Los Angeles, CA and best feature film at the RADAR Film Festival in Hamburg, Germany. The movie stars Rebecca Neuenswander, Chad Ortis, Kurt Hanover, and John Wilson.

Official Description: Michael Dublin is a con man working the underground boxing circuit. A lonely drifter on the run from a past best forgotten, he moves from one scam to another—leaving a trail of enemies in his wake. Dublin invents his best scam yet when he meets Katherine Parker, a female fighter with the skills to take down a man twice her size. In a scheme Dublin that names Fight Rigging in Reverse, the two hit the road working bouts in seedy basement bars, abandoned warehouses and backwoods county fairs. But when Dublin’s shady past catches up with them, the stakes are suddenly higher—and more dangerous—than either of them could have ever imagined.

Check out the movie for free on Snag Films. Come back and tell us what you thought!

At long last… and with much skepticism… the Justice League trailer is here.

Official Description: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

As exciting as it is to have these characters on screen together, the costumes feel off and while overall the vibe is lighter in tone, the movie is still so dark. The lack of Superman in the trailer is understandable, but it makes the team and movie feel so incomplete. Without Superman it is not the Justice League. One of Batman v Superman‘s biggest mistakes is now hurting any anticipation I want to have for the team up.

The movie hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
