I'm stuck in a buh-buh-B-Movie!
Craig Shaw Gardner has done a ton of books, and I think that the last one I actually purchased was back in 1990 with his Revenge of the Fluffy Bunnies. I went through my library and saw that I had about 15 of his books and adaptations; making me wonder how I had missed this book (series). I'm glad that I got this, as it is a fun campy ride through B-movie land. Although, after listening to it I have to wonder if anyone under 30 will get alot of the references given that I'm a movie buff and MY kids have no idea of some of the parodies that come up. If you know them, it's hilarious. If you don't it makes no sense and is not funny. I loved it, but then, I am a cinephile. Casual movie watchers will not get this, nor will most Millenials.
Machin surprised me with his vocal skills. I have a lot of narrators that I admire, and he could easily hit their ranks. He provided each character a unique and distinctive voice, and added in the proper inflections when hinting at the humor that was on the page. I really enjoyed his work and will keep an eye out for him in the future.
Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
