Whatever you stream, don't fall asleep.

Fall asleep??? Not possible with Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, and Betty herself Ms. Bacall coming at you. And that would be some serious horror if Lauren Bacall could get to you. In her current state and all. So yeah you heard us - we have some A List stars up in TheArchive . Keitel, Law, and Bacall are in Presence of Mind . And so is Nilo Zimmermann. You know, Lydia Zimmermann's son. Their name has two Ns. So much name dropping here. They should have dropped the extra N though. And if you haven't unfollowed us after watching that gem we buried the leads: Mutant - which is a legit good little freaky creature feature. One Dark Night - Adam West. That's enough. Uninvited - this one features the OG "Flerken" that Captain Marvel clearly ripped off! And th ere's all kinds of Amityville horror t o watch. Not the original classic good one. You can get that on Amazon Prime.  While you're there download our app . Not that Ryan Reynolds one either. But we DO have th

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 . Be afraid. Be very afraid... 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 watc

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

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, figh
