Barbarian [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Michael O'Hearn
Barbarian [Import] DVD ~ Michael O'Hearn
This Roger Corman produced turkey was put out by New Concorde, the same company that did the bulk of the campy 80s Sword and Sorcery movies. Apparently their budget low enough that they had to use the Deathstalker's script, along with some of the old footage. Filmed in the Ukraine in some pretty nice old castles, the plot is literally exactly the same (three big magic items being collected by the bad guy sorcerer, sorcerer's tournament, etc.).
On the plus side, this allows both Barbie Benton and the Pig Guy to make a cameo as the orgy scene is replayed! While the acting is truly bad, at least the star, Michael O'Hearn, is ripped, it has a semi-recognizable bad guy (Martin Kove), and… Read more

Best yet is the awesome imagination brought to life in this masterpiece epic. While some of the… Read more
Dilbert: The Complete Series [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Daniel Stern
The Dilbert TV series is truly a riot. It has both the fun of office space, along with the incredibly looney deaths that only a cartoon can provide (black holes created by Dilbert's invention that's field tested by rednecks and ends up sucking up everything, poor ventilation polution that turns workers into slimes, fish people, etc, and other poorly designed contraptions that generally cause death and mass destruction). Like office space, this series pokes fun at all aspects of office life, including outsourcing, marketing folks, motivation schemes, board of directors, etc. The character voices seem dead on for what you would expect in the Dilbert comics. If anything, Dogbert is even… Read more
