Moon Features' inane Evil
Bong Stash Box
(2006 - 2019) Blu-ray set takes nine of the worst things producer
Charles Band (or any other human being who ever operated any kind of
camera that successfully recorded images) made, an endless, on and on
and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on one-joke
series about a Satanically possessed bong used for 'weed' out to
steal souls (and easy money) over what will hopefully end with nine
horrid productions that are so bad, they might as well be from Hell.
they came up with a box set and then tried to upgrade all of them to
HD (thankfully, NOT 4K!!!) and sell it is sad in what is the worst
box set ever made in the international history of home video. The
discs may have a few worthless extras, but the box set is actually
oversized and empty! Yes, two spaces to fill drug paraphernalia.
Its enough to get 'pot' banned all over the U.S. and world all over
this is actually some kind of Limited Edition that already sold out,
but since Band had sold us all out with this nadir of all of home
video history, you'll either pay higher prices or possibly get a
regular version of this set without its non-extras. And none of the
programs are funny, even if the viewer is 'skied out' and worse, I
can guarantee you that all the deadliest drug cartels in the world,
in association with all the top labs and nation states' secret
services combined with a several trillion-dollar budget could not
possibly come ANY kind of substance known to man that could make one
'high' enough to enjoy this garbage.
you can also have the epitome of the phoniest 'films' that pretend to
be funny or feel good and have strange motives. Outdoing the
psychotic nightmare we know as The Hallmark Channel, God's
Not Dead: 4-Movie Collection
(2014 - 2021) are the worst of some very usually very, very, very,
very, very awful and extremely condescending 'faith' films where
everyone is as happy as a pod person from Invasion
Of The Body Snatchers
the rate of two catastrophes a year, these four amazingly smug
productions follow the phony formulas from the worst cable TV ever
made and adds all kinds of subliminal and sinister twists to
basically target free thought, freedom and any human being who does
not agree with the narrow and nearly fascist ideology of these hack
Sorbo, Melissa Joan Hart, John Corbett and Isaiah Washington are
among the few name actors who show up in these indoctrination
exercises, destroying the healthy differentiation between church and
state, burying progress and hoping for a Christo-fascist police state
and Theocracy with enough underlying and extreme hostility to fuel
several government overthrows. One has a church saved from being
closed, one about an evil atheist professor, another about a 'good'
professor who talks about Jesus and one about home schooling that
baits religious freedom questions idiotically. That last one is
subtitled 'We The People'
as if this brand of Christianity was the national religion.
the disc is designed that way, with the first time in years that
trailers show up and you cannot forward them or get past them in any
way, shape or form. Yes, the bullying and harassment starts right
off the bat as soon as you hit the play button. It was so annoying,
I wondered if it could damage and even break older disc players. The
extras, if you ever get to them, are as condescending and the result
is that this is the most insulting DVD set I have ever encountered in
my life and as much of a disgrace as it is a disaster.
way, do yourself a huge favor and skip it all while you can!!!
for 'playback' performance, with the Evil
Blu-rays here in various aspect ratios at 1080p digital High
Definition image, but you get softness, ghosting, blurring and
alignment issues that show how sloppily and bad these were shot over
the years. A DVD set probably hides the flaws, so you know.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image on the Dead DVDs are
also soft, but the camera just sits there on most of the shots
throughout the four releases and the color is not that good either.
Then you have repetitive, boring images and some motion blur, so even
the camera people were arrogant.
you might expect lossless sound from the Blu-rays, they are here
instead in both lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 and lossy Dolby Digital 2.0
Stereo that show very bad judgement throughout in microphone
placement, location audio, sound mixing, sound editing and just plain
human being talking. Sloppy and weak, we can actually say the same
about the lossy Dolby mixes on the Dead DVDs that are lower
than they should be and off, with a lack of soundfield. It is so bad
that in both cases, beware of high playback levels and volume
two extreme sides of the same stupidity, avoid both at all costs!!!
