Scott’s Cinema de Merde site Scott’s YouTube page Scott’s Xanadu review
Cinema de Merde is a great site for reading in-depth reviews of really cheesy movies. It’s totally worth checking out if not only because it’s not just MST3K-type films. Scott has A Night in Heaven. Scott really loves Xanadu. The reviews are written, recorded, podcasted and VIDEOCAST. Basically, there’s no excuse NOT to peruse the review of GYMKATA.
