My Name is Bruce (2007)

Oh, HELL yeah! It's time for a new bad movie review and next up is one from The King! Bruce Campbell is simply the King of B-Movies and, if I must be honest, my personal hero. When I heard about his new movie My Name is Bruce, I knew that I would soon be wasting.. er.. investing another two hours (well, 84 minutes) of my life in B-movie bliss! Yeah, the dissertation would have to wait. It's OK; it's not like my committee reads my blog (or DO they...). Anyways, lets get you caught up!

Something evil is stirring in the small mining town of Gold Lick, and it is NOT happy! Local teens, who are bored and hormonal (as ever) get to jacking around in an old Chinese cemetery and awaken an ancient evil: Guan-di, the Chinese Protector of the Dead and Bean Curd!

"You kids get offa my lawn!"

Now, Guan-di is on a bloody crusade to wipe out the small town's population and reek his hellish vengeance on the locals for their ancestor's abuse of the Chinese immigrants. What can the good citizens of Gold Lick do? Time to call in the big guns!

Shanghaied by the locals and rather clueless, Bruce Campbell believes that he is filming his latest B-movie masterpiece as he leads what's left of the locals against the deadly deity of late-dynastic doom!

Reality (Ha!) soon sets in for Bruce when he realizes that this is not Hollywood and that ain't a rubber polearm comin' at him! Daddy needs to cowboy-up!

Gratuitous Chainsaw Sighting--FTW

This is a great bad movie that has some truly laugh-out-loud moments! I love how his life is depicted and the special effects are pretty good. Heck, the insider chuckles at his past movie and TV portfolio alone are worth the rental price. Get it, grab some popcorn and enjoy!

My favorite quote of the movie: "Consider yourself officially exempt from my wrath sweetcakes, and if you're lucky a little later I'll let you play with my boomstick." Hail to the King, baby!

  1. Sometimes I get the Guan Di song in my head and cannot get it out until I watch the movie again. I guess its a good think I own a copy.

  2. LOL! Yeah, I showed the song to my TSI class today - caught one humming the song an hour later.

  3. I suggest Bruce Campbells other recent movie, Man with the Screaming Brain
