Panther Girl of the Kongo

Did Republic’s serial-makers lose their marbles? This is an endurance test of a thriller, with 12 chapters that refuse to advance a story beyond the same repetitive ambushes and fistfights. It’s got monsters in the form of giant crawfish bred to… well, bred for almost no reason at all. With Phyllis Coates and Myron Healey. I tell you, watching this feels like watching an endless loop. But hey, it’s quite handsomely filmed!

The 15 Lamest Bands With Really Intense Names

We haven’t done a random ‘music argument’ list in a while, so here’s a topic for discussion: Really lame bands with really intense band names. As in, bands whose actual music doesn’t live up to the aggressiveness, violence, or intensity implied by their band name, often to hilarious degrees. A Crucial Distinction: “Lame” does not necessarily mean “Bad”. I enjoy many of the bands on this list – I enjoy Billy Joel too, for example, but Billy Joel is overwhelmingly lame, and these things are not mutually exclusive. Here are The 15 Lamest Bands With Intense Names, ordered by increasing discrepancy between “Name Intensity” and “Music Lameness”, using official science: 15.

DVD review: Dinosaur Secrets The Complete Season One

Dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago after ruling the earth for 160 million years and remain a source of endless fascination.

From an opportunistic Nanotyrannus taking on a nest of T-Rex youngsters to a mighty Megalodon (a 50ft shark) ambushing a whale off the coast of Japan, Dinosaur Secrets provides an engaging account of how, why and where dinosaurs fought.
