For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about the movies that are so very bad, but we love them anyway.
Pop-Culture Trivia – Jackie Ormes
She is the Google Doodle for September 1st. Ormes’s first comic strip, Torchy Brown in Dixie to Harlem, first appeared in the Pittsburgh Courier on May 1, 1937. Her work was not syndicated in the usual sense, but, since the Courier had fourteen city editions, she was indeed read from coast to coast. The strip, starring Torchy Brown, was a humorous depiction of a Mississippi teen who found fame and fortune singing and dancing in the Cotton Club.
Trish – Avenue Five on HBO. An interstellar cruise ship gets the Gilligan’s Island treatment and instead of a few months of cruising, they get…three and a half years. Hugh Laurie is SO good in this!
Jeremy – After quite some waiting, the long-awaited sequel to Korea’s Train to Busan has been released. The first movie was a zombie sensation that revitalized the genre. While not a direct sequel, Peninsula has its moments to shine. The car chase scenes make Mad Max come off as a lackluster Sunday drive. While Peninsula has a bit of a genre crisis at times, it still entertains and has quite a few stand out moments. Definitely worth watching.
