I had the bad sense to watch

Zombie Apocalypse Now! last night. In my haste to rid myself of the extremely bad taste that movie left me with, I neglected to watch the last five minutes. Can someone please please tell me that the ferry from Catalina, when it arrived, was filled with the dreaded Zombie Apocalyptics, hungry for a taste of fresh meat. Please!

I wish I could

but the blimp view of the harbor at the very end showed a CGI boat of some kind arriving while blasting its horn for every zombie within 10 miles to hear, and since zombies respond to noise the boat wanted to demonstrate subtleness.

Did you like how in one scene the 'archers' talk about the need to conserve arrows if at all possible and in the next, after killing three, they stroll unrushed past them and don't glance at said arrows?  I know it's a SyFy movie and I watch (mostly cause the redhead likes hideous horror flicks) for the stupidly entertaining factor, but I would think perhaps one of the *coughcough* actors would pick up on that because the director/editor/prop guy/writer(s) obviously couldn't be bothered.  (not like that was the one stupid thing, the Ed Wood day/night split group was maybe worse, and I could go on and on)

Ving's not looking as sharp as once he did, but it's a paycheck.

Thanks.

Ving was definitely looking a little puffy. Perhaps he was off the 'roids and re-hydrating.

To atone for my transgression, I eagerly await

Night of the Lepus on TCM tonight with Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun and DeForest Kelley. Really, what's not to like about giant rabbits marching eagerly towards Easter and church-going folk everywhere. I never miss an opportunity to watch this one.

I wish they had the balls to actually show it at Easter.

Unfortunately, it will interrupt 2BrokeGirls and NCIS, at least one of which rocks gamera out. Or not. There's nothing hotter than watching chubby thighs and a puker mounting a studio horse. I wonder which one gets to sweep up the road apples.

Now that I think about it (and hurt my head doing so)

the machinegun on the plastic shopping cart spewing shell casings while the belt remains motionless during that entire encounter was up there too.

I tried to figure out whether the belt was a stand-in

for a real gun/belt combination. I thought that it might be a spare, and that a second belt was spewing casings behind the first, but I couldn't get a good enough look. Meh. It was like the arrows. Never enough/too many, depending on the continuity people.

Whatever SyFy does

it always manages to make the fare on Chiller and Fearnet that much more appealing.  One day, OH HAPPY DAY, one day, OH GLORIOUS DAY, SyFy will figure out that their atrocious special effects simply aren't worth cranking out a 'SyFy original' once a week and put some actual talent/skill/money towards their effects.  But then again, they have all their original series which are SOOOOOO good to fall back on.

I must interrupt my viewing of the crazy-eyed, pencil-dicked owner Will Hayden and his mush-mouthed daughter of Sons of Guns fame and fortune to watch the giant Lepus.

I'm wondering if we couldn't get the Lepus on Sons of Guns for a double feature of casting and blasting.

Just wait

in less than two weeks after a full day of godawful SyFy original movies about things cold comes the world premier of RAGE OF THE YETI.  Oooooooooooooooo, scary.  (everything but the yeti will be too)

Well, you could always write your own script.

Try this concept generator - well, all right, it's a logline generator. Whatev.

The ones it has

would be better for most anything but zombies, substitute a different group and it works.
