Archie: Robodog – talking robot dog shenanigans!

Part dog. Part machine. Totally awesome. This is the tag line for Archie: Robodog, which gives the world what it wants, more robot dog movies! The dog is not only a robot, but it talks, and helps fight against capitalist oppressors who want to destroy small town America and turn it into the latest franchise location. Well, Burgertropolis, it’s time you got Robodogged!

Archie: Robodog is written by Robin Dunne, who you may recall starred in Cruel Intentions 2, Species III, American Psycho II: All American Girl, The Skulls II, Au Pair II, Beyond Sherwood Forest , Scarecrow, and Space Milkshake. Well, he also writes, and has written the four entries in the Roxy Hunter series: Roxy Hunter and the Mystery of the Moody Ghost, Roxy Hunter and the Myth of the Mermaid, Roxy Hunter and the Secret of the Shaman, and Roxy Hunter and the Horrific Halloween.

Robot dog films are becoming one of the next big things in dog movie plots, along with the talking dogs home alone genre. It is a great time to be a fan of robot dogs or mouthy dogs that square off against evil in all its forms.

ISABEL SULLIVAN (15) has just moved to a small town to live with her uncle PAUL who is the town’s mayor. Isabel has recently lost her parents in a car accident. Feeling very alone and friendless, Isabel befriends a stray robot dog named ARCHIE. Though he looks like a normal dog, he is anything but. He can talk. He can run at blinding speed. He’s got super strength and x-ray vision.

Isabel and Archie become fast friends. She teaches him how to be a normal dog while he helps her to fit in with the cool kid clique. Most of all, Isabel can confide in Archie about what happened to her parents. Archie can relate. He’s never had a family – until now.

As the summer progresses, things start to get tricky. Paul is up for re-election and finds himself running against VERONICA TAYLOR who happens to be in cahoots with BURGERTROPOLIS – a national fast food franchise that has been trying to buy Paul out for years. What’s worse, an evil man named HUGH JABLONSKI shows up in town claiming to be Archie’s rightful owner…

Species III (Review)

Species III

Robin Dunne as Dean
Robert Knepper as Dr. Abbot
Sunny Mabrey as Sara
Amelia Cooke as Amelia
J.P. Pitoc as Hastings
Natasha Henstridge as Eve

Direct to Sci-Fi Channel? How could I lose? Natasha Henstridge made it big by being the alien desperately looking for Mr. Goodbar who just happened to be naked for 78.342193% of the movie. That was followed up by a movie where an Astronaut who went to Mars became an Alien Deuce Bigalow implanting women with exploding babies that reach birthing stage after a few seconds. Due to the quick work of Bubba Blue from Forrest Gump and the remade Natasha Henstridge Astronaut Jones became Astro-not Jones. However, just to show it wasn’t the end of the line, Species II made certain to leave an out. Actually, it left Three! We had one of the Village of the Damned-looking children survive, inside the army truck with dead Natasha, who’s stomach was growing because she was pregnant after death, and out number three involved a random cat that jumped on her stomach, punched around, and quickly ran off. So whatever writers tackled this legacy would have no problem coming up with some sort of plot device. Astoundingly, the writers still had to stretch to get the story rolling, despite it being set up perfectly and easily.
