The Hidden 2 (1993) – 2 Non Critics

What can you say when talking about a direct to video sequel of a B-Movie that not many people remember?

A hell of a lot apparently.

Non critics Will and Dustin close the book on The Hidden saga(?) by getting deep into the guts of a film from Will’s childhood.

Does it hold up with his nostalgic memories? The Answer is “hidden” within.


’90s Sci-Fi Fiend

One of my many proposed projects has been one called Wannabe Trekker, where I watch one episode of Star Trek: Voyager every week and do a Vlog about it. After my first video went south due to some poor audio, I spent a lot of time rethinking the concept.

Part of the reason for going with Voyager was because it began in the ’90s and I have a special fondness for the science-fiction of that decade. Much of it wasn’t very good. Yet there was a warmth to it, and the sense that at least someone out there was trying, which I deeply identify with.

The more I got to thinking about covering sci-fi of the decade, the more excited I got. There was a lot more of it than you might think. I decided it might be fun to figure out which shows would be worth revisiting, maybe lay out a game plan, then give it a shot.

My initial thought is to avoid the ’90s big guns. No X-Files. No Trek. No Stargate. Maybe Outer Limits. Reason being that there is no shortage of content out there covering those shows. Earth 2  and Seaquest however…that opens possibilities.

Also out would be animation. Not that I don’t like animation, but I’m going for shows that have that warmth I mentioned.

I’m not sure if these would be daily videos, or just filler, but it should be fun.

Reggie Retro – Gremlins Novelization

It took him a year, but Reggie Retro has finally made his first video!

While nothing like my original intention for these videos, I still like it a lot. I’m proud of it actually. Reggie feels like a complete character with a full life beyond the video.

Which is more than I can say for many of my characters (and most in Hollywood).

Everything with Orange Retro Productions is about putting it all out there, setting the foundation and seeing where it takes you. The process might be slow – but the reward will be so gratifying.

Help Reggie build his Nostalgianarium.
