If you thought the first one was ludicrous, prepare to be amazed (and bemused and confused!). This sequel moves the action from the West coast of the USA to the East coast, but retains everything you loved(?) about the original – namely shark-infested tornadoes, over-the-top acting and sequences that don’t just ignore the laws of physics, but openly mock them.

Robo-Geisha is a bizarre film from the team that brought us the crazy Machine Girl. The plot follows two rival sisters, one a Geisha, one a wannabe Geisha, as they try and one up each other by adding ludicrous augments to their bodies.

Everybody has seen a bad film at least once in their life. Some of them at least let you derive some form of pleasure, but all too often they are just out and out rubbish.
This blog aims to capture myself and Simon’s view of such films. We will hopefully provide some insight into the world of b-movie *cough* classics, and poke a bit of fun at the film industry along the way.
We have a few in our back pocket to write up, but this week we’ll be kicking off proceedings with a viewing of Sharknado 2 : The Second One.
There isn’t going to be any hard and fast schedule to any of this, we’ll just post as and when something appropriate lands on Netflix or wherever. So watch this space and enjoy the ride.
