MasterChugs Theater: ‘The Mighty Peking Man’

While Dino de Laurentiis was spending millions of Hollywood dollars on his lavish creation of King Kong, the Shaw Brothers of Hong Kong used spit, grit, baling wire and lots of stock film of terrified city dwellers pointing at the sky to bring you (cue major echo effect) The Mighty Peking Man!

Bad special effects, bad acting, bad script, cheap looking model set-ups, cheesy bloody special effects, sloppy continuity, mismatched color correction on the blue screen shots, the King Kong of Hong Kong … how could it go wrong?

Ha. Ha! HAHAHAHAHA! Continue reading MasterChugs Theater: ‘The Mighty Peking Man’

The McBournie Minute: DirecTV practices the black arts

It’s Halloween time, that means everyone will have costume pictures on the Facebook profiles in a week we are half way through the Christmas shopping season it’s nearly time to party. Yours truly may not survive Halloween because I will be going to a murder party. Having never been to one before, I’m not sure what level of make-believe is. So if it comes down to them or me, my hunting knife ought to win out. I bought a fedora for my costume the other day, not because I am going to be Don Draper for Halloween, but the party is supposed to be a 1920s speakeasy. I plan to draw on my college experience to play the part of drinking in secret.

Those terrifying Kodak moments

Was Roland Emmerich unavailable?

The U.S. Department of Defense has finally released the April 27th Air Force One photos over New York City. There was some delay because they had to photoshop several thousand pee-pee stains from the pants of New Yorkers below.

The flyover was condemned by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Barack Obama because it was unannounced and “around the site of the World Trade Center.” Defense officials countered that the flight was a classified mission, which explains both why they didn’t tell anyone and why it was done with a bright blue and white plane over one of the most populated cities in America.

If we believe anything here at SeriouslyGuys, it’s that mistakes are learning experiences: it’s only OK to use aircraft in New York if they’re attacking a giant ape or being emceed by Al Roker.
