Epic way to kickoff a Friday afternoon.
Richard Simmons on Whose Line Is It Anyway.
Last night my wife and I hit a few Hollywood Video stores that are going out of business and we picked up some Xbox games for 80% off and some good movies on DVD that were 5 for $10. Not too bad!
But what really got my attention were the movies I didn’t get. Even at $2 a piece I passed right by these gems.
First up was TRANSMORPHERS : FALL OF MAN
Oh yeah. Not a ripoff of Transformers at all. Seriously! Nothing like it! This artwork and title won’t confuse anybody!
The blurb in the upper left piles it on, too. “This prequel to the 2007 blockbuster, is a sci-fi action extravaganza in the tradition of INDEPENDENCE DAY and WAR OF THE WORLDS”
Even more amazing was THE TERMINATORS movie cover.
This kind of stuff is legal? Come on! By the same logic, I can get away with opening a Burger Kings if I wanted to, right? It’s not Burger King! It’s Burger Kings! With an s! I serve the flame-mesh Whapper! The flame-fresh Whopper? Never heard of it.
This next movie I’ve actually heard of, and for a brief second, I thought $2 was ok for this diamond in the very very very very rough. Then I realized I could get Moon or The Killer for the same $2 and I immediately came to my senses.
Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus!! Just for the awesome… badness of it!
Finally, this movie made me laugh just for it’s title.
It’s a movie about vampire kids? And the tag is “don’t look down”? Awesomeness.
Seriously, though. These movies were green-lit, financed, produced, edited, released and made some money for somebody. So who am I to say anything? This is either an incredibly depressing fact or an awesomely inspiring fact depending on how you look at it.
Me? I’m gonna’ write a script! I’ll call it DIE HARDS! Yes!
Call me Hollywood.
As an extra special bonus, I’ve added trailers for some of the movies I found below.
