Josh Kirby: Time Warrior or Serial Killer?

Josh Kirby: Time Warrior or Serial Killer? (aka an unnecessarily deep dive into Josh Kirby)
Every clickbait article on Facebook, Twitter, or Buzzfeed seems to go on about how great the 90s were. Well, as someone who lived through it, I can tell you it wasn't all that great. The Phantom Menace, Ruby Ridge, Waco, the Beanie Baby craze; all equally bad. These, however, pale in comparison to what could possibly be the worst thing about the decade... the creation of the scariest children's character, ever: Josh Kirby.

Having sat through these six movies, I'm 99% sure our protagonist is a serial killer who has imagined all of the adventures we see on screen. Oh, you want proof? Are the ravings of a crazy person, driven to insanity after months of Covid-19 isolation, not good enough for you?!?  Well, here you go:
1. Josh's weird fascination with watches.
In the very first scene, we see a dresser drawer full of watches. "It's a movie about time travel, of course clocks are …

B-Movies, Leslie Nielsen and Bears, oh my!

(aka an exploration into insanity) You've been warned...

There are plenty of weird movie clips that we all see shared across the web. You know the ones. Those clips so out of context, so bizarre and head scratching they couldn't possibly be legit?
So on this lovely summer day, I wanted to share with you something so timely, so lined up with hipster pop culture that I have dug out from TheArchive none other than Leslie Nielsen and wait for it...animals on attack! I mean who needs funny man Sandler and his latest Netflix yawner or the lunatic in Tiger King when I'm delivering you the real uncut gems!
IMHO (yes throwback Thursday acronyms may abound), there is one clip that defies so much logic that it actually becomes more baffling, as more context is gleaned. One where a shirtless Leslie Nielsen, you know, that perpetually white haired real funny guy, best known for his roles in Airplane! and Naked Gun, fights a bear! Also it's not …

Summer Summer Summertime  (for B-Movies...because you’ve seen everything else)
Ahhh…summer!


The Sand! The Surf! The Sun! The July 4th fireworks spectacle! 
Or in reality, none of that while we stew inside suffering through the same stupid shit on Netflix.
As we continue into the Covid-19 apocalypse I’ve run out of stuff to watch. Until now.
While I’m safely hidden in TheArchive’s Top (Pop) Secret (thank you to our popcorn sponsor) bunker (totally not a broom closet), I’m going to share some B-Movie Summer fun from the dark corners of…not the broom closet! Or Roomba closet! (Thank you Roomba)

How great is this image?!?

So grab your sunscreen (can you get a sunburn from your iPhone?), stay six feet away from the TV, (can I give the virus to the actors in the movies? Some of them deserve it!), and enjoy a vision of days gone by….

I haven’t felt the sun on my skin in three months...
Our first movie from TheArchive’s Summer Summer Summertime is the newly restored to 4K Welcome to Paradise (1995), wh…
