Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A superhero who flies poorly and complains a lot. Rated: 1/4 Apr 28, 2020 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Pleasance lends this trash some class, but it's mostly an experience you can ignore, and isn't exactly crying for a reboot.

Wauk W Get ready for 'The Pumaman,' where a hero in a short cape and magic belt takes on the forces of evil. Probably the worst super hero movie ever made. A must-watch for fans of 'so bad it's good' cinema. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Audience Member Another loveable bad euro super hero movie. And there are a lot of them out there. Loveable for all the laughs the ineptitude of the film inspires. If you are a connoisseur of bad movies, then "The Pumaman" is like a well aged wine. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review ryan f On its own merits, Pumaman is horrible in every respect, from a dumb script to bad acting and stupid special effects. The one thing that makes this movie watchable (even fun) is watching it on MST3K. Having Mike & the bots trash on this movie is the only saving grace. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review gianmarco R Ugly movie made with little effort and with many inconsistencies and holes throughout the plot. The flight scene has special effects that are unwatchable, and then he can theoretically do anything a cougar can do but I don't think a cougar can fly Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/21/19 Full Review Audience Member Why couldn't I have been pushed out a window before I had to watch this? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member The new MST3K Netflix original has been released and I decided to expose myself to some of the old episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy the torture they are put through. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the extra material broadcast from the satellite of love. Italian made ultra low budget flick shot mostly in England. The plot and effects are laughably, embarrassingly bad. Not based on a comic character. There is no chemistry in the romantic subplot. Donald Pleasence who was once Blofeld in the James Bond franchise plays a heavy of that type, but the writing is poor, his henchmen are bland, and the way everything is shot is boring. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
