Star Trek Picard Movie & TV Collection Here on Ground Control we plan on going where no man has ever gone before – to cover the entire Star Trek series home releases for your enjoyment. Well, not really, but we are terribly excited about the new Picard series debuting on CBS. Star Trek has a long and rich history, and though it’s had many ups and downs, it’s probably most known for the Next Generation series with...

Little Women/Marie Antoinette Double Feature There are so many actors/actresses/directors whose movies I refuse to see just because I’ve had it with them. Like Anne Hathaway, Josh Gad, and Christopher Nolan. Just people who have thrived through mediocrity and are so impressed with themselves that I’ve lost complete interest. I’ve followed this code and it’s served me well. Then there’s Kirsten Dunst. Kirsten Dunst is my jam. The complete opposite of what I just mentioned. She’s an actress that...

Gremlins You know how some people like to have an argument about how Die Hard is a Christmas movie? It was cute back when it first happened, but now it’s just seems tired. I could say the same thing about the movie Shazam! What it boils down to is that people seem to need an excuse to watch Die Hard, and they shouldn’t need the Holiday season to do that. On the other hand, there are...

Barb Wire I remember as a kid waiting for the release of Barb Wire with anticipation. Of course I couldn’t go to the theatres to see an R rated movie, so I had to wait for the home video. And why was I waiting for this movie? Because at the time the idea of adapting a comic book was a new and “cool” idea. Of course there was Batman, but that franchise had been consumed by multiple generations. On...

Savage Beach & Picasso Trigger If it’s zaniness you’re looking for in your movies, then look no further than the films of Andy Sidaris. It’s interesting to break down exactly what their appeal is; they’re amateurishly acted, borderline pornographic, and hopelessly predictable. That’s all true. But what’s also true is that they’re a boatload of fun. Keep in mind, the man is responsible for 16 movies of the BBB genre (that’s bullets, bombs, and babes). And I don’t mean mere...

Venture Bros: Season 7 Let’s back up a second and talk about why the Venture Brothers is arguably the best show on TV right now. First of all, because The Sopranos is over, obviously. Second, because the proof is in the pudding and the Venture Brothers is mighty tasty pudding. Watching the Venture Brothers is a delight for many reasons. Not just that Doc Hammer and Jackson Public have created a show so perfectly immersed in its world that...

Double Team – Retro VHS Look I have a soft spot for Jean Claude Van Damme, or JCVD for short. Ever since I was a little kid I had admiration for him and his action movies. Sure, I was fully on board with the Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Willis, Van Damme quartet of action stars, but something about JCDV always stood out for me. Partly because he was an actual martial arts expert, partly because he starred in Street Fighter and I...

Malibu Express & Hard Ticket to HawaiiMill Creek Entertainment What gems the Andy Sidaris movies are. If you’re not familiar with them, imagine low-budget sexy spy movies, so bad that they’re good. Wow, I’m actually surprised how well that summarizes them. You’re not going to find too much high-brow content when you turn on an Andy Sidaris flick but you will find a project born out of dedication and love. There’s no doubt that these guys know what they...

Last Action HeroVHS-era Classic – Mill Creek Entertainment I remember Last Action Hero and I remember it well. Too well. I don’t know if it was actual commercial hype or the fact that there were multiple video games based on the movie. Whatever it was, I wanted in. I remember being blown away by it when I finally watched it, having never been exposed to this kind of self aware humor. I thought this was high art. But I never...

BlackkKlansman I have one question for Spike Lee: how dumb does he think his audience is? I had high hopes for Blackkklansman. I heard good things from friends and the internet. Both touting it as entertaining and impressive. After all, when has the internet ever been wrong or hyperbolic? However, after finally watching it I realize that the internet is dumb. And maybe my friends are dumb too. Certainly, Spike lee thinks his audience is dumb and...
