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 …

Inside the Film Restoration Process

We have recently mourned the passing of acting legend Wilford Brimley, who died on August 1 at the age of 85. Brimley became a household name thanks to his appearances in movies like Cocoon, commercials for Quaker Oats, and ubiquitous public-service announcements for diabetes awareness. Brimley’s acting career gained him loyal admirers among film fans, who heaped praise on his performances in films such as Absence of Malice, The Natural, The Firm, Hard Target, and of course, the cult horror classic The Thing.
At TheArchive, we’re proud to have worked closely with one of Brimley’s many performances via our efforts to restore Where the Red Fern Grows: Part Two, the 1992 sequel to the 1974 film adaptation of the classic novel by Wilson Rawls. It was a privilege to construct a newly restored 4K master of this film from scans of original film elements. However, this proved to be one of the most difficult restoration processes we have undertaken for TheArchive. To give you a better sense of …

Streaking in Sports? No Harm. No Foul.

Image
When streaking becomes professional, does that mean it’s serious business or just for laughs? 
Can't it be both?
TheArchive decided to undress this conceit.

Streaking rose to popularity in the early 1970s, as disruption to sporting events to demonstrate rebellion. As the phenomenon grew in prominence across live sporting events, security and event handlers would do their best to diffuse the situation and discourage the daring and baring. 

But alas, the streaking continued. Providing a sense of comedic flare to the otherwise tension-filled dynamic of the game, spectators seem to enjoy both and have come to expect if not demand some nude diversion during the big game.
In STREAKER, our favorite streaker movie we've acquired yet, this Swiss film spotlights the high stakes competitive world of streaking; money and pride are on the line, and bets are placed to see who can stay on the field the longest.And there's nudity!

This Thanksgiving, Eat Your Young

Buzzard Hollow Beef is one tasty holiday horror movie you'll want to binge. The beef-themed thriller (yes that's a genre and it's free, streaming, HD so don't judge) tells the story of Jordan Vollmer, a recently divorced single-mother heading home to her family for the Thanksgiving holiday in the mysterious town of Buzzard Hollow. 
When the family and friends begin experiencing vivid hallucinations after eating locally sourced meat, they suspect the town farmers of Buzzard Hollow are to blame.

Things only get worse from there. We know everyone likes to complain about their family during the holidays right? Can you imagine combining crazy family with hallucinations, horror, cannibals, and the sheer HORROR of eating...BEEF on Thanksgiving? Nightmare incarnate. errr...en carne!

Tense table talk about politics does not hold a candle to the madness that the Vollmer clan endures in this icky flick, but what we can tell you is that Buzzard Hollow Beef may just inspire some rob…
