Just what the Internet needs: another effin’ movie site!
But Flick Attack is different: No news. No scoops. No rumors. No set reports. No fanboys hiding behind fake names. Just one kick-ass review a day, Monday through Friday (more or less), with the occasional article on Saturday and/or Sunday to make your weekend that much awesomer.
Yep, that’s right: Every day (mood depending), you get one review, so take it or leave it. While everyone else pees their pants over the latest and soon-to-be-latest multiplex releases, we’re gonna dig through our archives and toss out something that’s most likely not playing a theater near you. Maybe you’ve heard of it; maybe you haven’t; maybe it’s easy to find; maybe it’s not — doesn’t matter, and we don’t care. You will read it, and you will like it.
So if you like discovering cinematic trash-terpieces, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got horror, sci-fi, action, kung fu, comedy and sex. But no drama. If it’s tears you want, we’ll be more than happy to kick you in the shin.
MEET YOUR EDITOR!
Rod Lott has reviewed movies for publications for more than three decades, including a long stint as managing editor of Oklahoma Gazette, one of the most successful alt-weeklies in the country. Several times during his seven years there, his pieces of film criticism and entertainment journalism were awarded first-place honors as the best in the state by the Society of Professional Journalists.
For 13 years and 37 issues, he published the popular magazine Hitch: The Journal of Pop Culture Absurdity, sold worldwide. During its run, he also wrote for Michael J. Weldon’s Psychotronic Video and Mike Vraney’s Something Weird Video.
Lott’s humor essays appeared alongside such comedy icons as Steve Martin, Merrill Markoe, Rick Moranis and Joe Bob Briggs in the collections 101 Damnations: The Humorists’ Tour of Personal Hells (Thomas Dunne Books), More Mirth of a Nation: The Best Contemporary Humor (Harper Perennial), May Contain Nuts: A Very Loose Canon of American Humor (Harper Paperbacks) and The Book of Zines: Reading from the Fringe (Henry Holt). He also wrote several literary adaptations in comics form for 15 volumes in Eureka Publishing’s Graphic Classics series.
Aside from Flick Attack, which he launched in 2010, he also runs Bookgasm, a site dedicated to genre fiction, founded in 2005. He lives in Oklahoma City.
