Movie reviews: You know we love 'em. But how many different reviews of the same
big-budget film based on that show from your childhood can you stand to read?
You may not know this, but those big-budget films based on that show from your
childhood only make up a small percentage of the movies made every year. In fact, most

Here's what we know: We know the first movie he ever
saw. We know that as a kid, Nolahn once set his alarm

his uncle's video store, cutting his teeth on such films as
Remo Williams and Killer Klowns From Outer Space.
After reading the umpteenth review of Fantastic Four:
Rise of the Silver Surfer, Nolahn decided it was time to
take up the cause for all those little movies clogging up
the shelves of your local video store.
He as since seen his work at The 'Bin as a sort of public
service -- watching bad movies so you don't have do.
What a saint, eh?
