I have made it clear in the past that when it comes to books, I am a big fan of Stephen King. My mom loved them growing up and after she finished reading each of his book, she gave them to me to read. I have been a fan since I was a kid and I have enjoyed Stephen King’s various movie and television spin offs… For better and for worse. The great thing about the Stephen King story is that whenever it is done well… It works really well and becomes either a cult classic or a classic movie. At its worse… Oh boy they are at least memorable in all the wrong ways. I love the Stephen King adaptations because no matter what I get, I know I am at least going to have a good time. There are very few Stephen King adaptations that do not at least entertain men. At their worst, you get wonderful terrible gems like The Langoliers or The Tommyknockers and when they are at their best… Well they are excellent movies so I can enjoy them on that principle alone.
So today, I decided to make a list to commemorate the best movies of the Stephen King Universe. The worst… Well that is a list for another day that we can get to. But for now we will list the Top 5 Stephen King Inspired Movies and Mini Series. Continue reading “Top 5 Stephen King Inspired Movies and Mini Series”
After I released my list of my Top 10 Guilty Pleasures, my roommate decided to sit me down and show me what was once one of her favorite horror movies of all time.

Just as I said in my guilty pleasures list, there was no way that I was going to dislike this movie, either for the good reasons or the bad. But in this case the good. Rose Red was a surprisingly suspenseful, thrilling, and entertaining watch. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Rose Red”
Guilty pleasures… We all have them. It is just a fact of life, no matter how refined our tastes are for certain media we will never escape the fact that there are some movies, television shows, anime, books, and so on and so forth that we KNOW for a fact are absolute steaming piles of shit… But for whatever reason whether it be nostalgia, a certain performance, or just the fact that it is so bad that it is wonderful we just cannot stop watching them. Anybody who says that they do not have a guilty pleasure is either A) too embarrassed to admit to their guilty pleasure or B) lying to themselves saying that it is actually good to make themselves feel better about liking something that is terrible. It is just a fact of life and I am absolutely no exception. I freely admit that I have a long list of guilty pleasures that I thoroughly enjoy watching and have no problem sharing them with you right now in my Top Ten Guilty Pleasures!
Keep in mind, the way that this Top 10 list will be ranked is by the level of badness of the movie + shame that I feel for liking them. Also keep in mind that this is my own personal list. If you would like to share your opinions then please do so, I would absolutely love to hear it. Also if you do not think these movies are bad, please share them. I would love to debate. But make no mistake, if a movie appears on this list, it is in this critics opinion that technically they are absolutely terrible movies, but at the same time I absolutely love them! So let’s get started with some honorable mentions. Continue reading “Tanner’s Top 10 Guilty Pleasures”
