BAD MOVIE: OVERLORDS OF THE UFO (1977)

Overlords of the UFOA reader sent me an email requesting that I review this movie but I already did in 2010.

Here it is again along with a reminder to check my Bad Movie Page to get immediate satisfaction for your bad movie fix.

After all, I might have already reviewed the movie you are requesting in which case you could read the review by simply clicking right here – https://glitternight.com/bad-movies 

OVERLORDS OF THE UFO (1977) – Category: Hilariously lame “documentary” about conspiracies, the paranormal and/or the supernatural    This little honey comes from the muck and slime encrusted bottom of the cinematic barrel of movies that followed in the wake of the ridiculous Chariots Of The Gods. None of these schlockumentaries are very convincing about their subject matter but this flick is so outrageously inept that not even the Ancient Aliens team would be suckered in by it … maybe.

Early on the fun kicks into high gear with mismatched stock footage of Continue reading

LONG-TIME LIBERAL ICON CALLS FOR OBAMA TO BE IMPEACHED

The piece of dogshit stubbornly clinging to the bottom of history's shoes

The piece of dogshit stubbornly clinging to the bottom of history’s shoes

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the internet that criticizes both Liberals and Conservatives equally.

Recently Barack Obama has tried to blame all of his administration’s failures and outright criminal behavior on (yawn) racism. That is nothing new but what IS new is the way former writer for The Village Voice Continue reading

CYPRIA: THE ANCIENT GREEK EPIC MYTH

Judgement of ParisTheogony, The Iliad and The Odyssey are a few of the more well-known Greek epics of the distant past. In keeping with the theme of Balladeer’s Blog I will present a look at the neglected Greek epics, many of which cover other aspects of the Trojan War. Yes, for those readers who think The Iliad is the sole epic regarding that conflict there are other tales that chronicle the mythic events from long before the opening passages of The Iliad. Here is one of those neglected works.

CYPRIA – Credited to either Stasinos of Cyprus (my bet), Hegesias or Homer himself. This epic featured the Continue reading

COSTUMED WOMAN CALLED THE MATRIARCH FOILS LAS VEGAS ROBBERY

THE MATRIARCH, costumed vigilante

THE MATRIARCH, costumed vigilante

Dateline: Las Vegas, NV  A costumed – and voluptuous – vigilante calling herself the Matriarch has declared war on crime. This violent woman has chosen Sin City of all places for her crusade against wrongdoing, a crusade which started two days ago when a young woman reported being saved from an attempted rape by the Matriarch’s timely arrival. The incident would have been dismissed as a hoax if not for the level of damage inflicted on the would-be rapist: the costumed woman whipped him nearly unconscious and then proceeded to kick him between the legs repeatedly with her sharp-toed boots. The accused assailant will likely never achieve a normal erection again for the rest of his life.

Overnight last night the Matriarch struck again, thwarting the attempted armed robbery of the Bellagio Casino. Bizarrely enough the heroine subdued the masked, commando-style gang by Continue reading
