It’s been a while since I’ve done an Homage to Fromage piece. To be honest with you, I’ve tried. I really have. But the last few Saturday night original movies on SyFy were painful and I couldn’t make it through them. That all changed this past weekend though. SyFy stepped it up just in time for Christmas with Snowmageddon.
My Aunt absolutely loves the Saturday night original movies that air on SyFy. I’ve been known to give her a hard time about it and when I call her on Saturday nights, knowing full well what she’s watching, I’ll ask her anyway. She responds by telling me she doesn’t want to say because she knows I’ll give her a ration for it. Well, I had to admit to her that I will be watching these movies myself. Of course I justify it in the name of content. It’s on television so therefore I must review it right? It’s perfectly justifiable. This week kicks off the Homage to Fromage column. This will be a recurring column focusing mainly on the SyFy Saturday night original movie. The movie in question for this week: Ice Road Terror! (PS….I spoil this one so be warned)
I decided when I started this site that I didn’t want to do a lot of news posts. There are so many other sites out there that focus on the latest happenings in film and television and I don’t want to just rehash stories that have been done to death. However…I will make the occasional exception when something really gets my blood pumping.
