Scott Hamilton and Christopher Holland have been writing about movies together for nearly ten years, at first in their college newspaper, and later in magazines like SFX and The Radio Times, and on the web. In 1996 they started Stomp Tokyo, a web site designed to focus on all kinds of movies on home video, but which quickly became synonymous with b-movies, cult flicks, and genre films. With a name like Stomp Tokyo, it was bound to happen

Kevin Costner doesn't want you to see his role as a wealthy rancher with a midget sidekick ("Sizzle Beach U.S.A."). Shannen Doherty would rather you never discovered the role in which she left both her clothes and her talent at home ("Blindfold: Acts of Obsession"). Long before becoming a paragon of fashion in "Sex and the City," Sarah Jessica Parker was a victim of '80s style in "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." And Harrison Ford probably still has nightmares about the time he hugged a Wookiee named Itchy in "The Star Wars Holiday Special."

Unfortunately for all of these actors, film critics Chris Holland and Scott Hamilton (creators of the b-movie web site Stomp Tokyo) have collected the most embarrassing moments of more than a hundred Hollywood celebrities and put them all in this book. But be warned  you may never look at your favorite movie stars the same way again.

The actors under the microscope in this book include Brad Pitt, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Perry, Roddy McDowall, Shannen Doherty, Drew Barrymore, Tom Hanks, Helen Hunt, Sean Connery, Peter Fonda, Dennis Quaid, Pia Zadora, Denise Richards, Jack Palance, Jessica Lange, Alyssa Milano, Vanna White, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gillian Anderson, Matthew McConaughey, Renee Zellweger, Jeff Bridges, Sherilyn Fenn, Adam Sandler, Calista Flockheart, Russell Crowe, Meg Ryan, Jennifer Lopez, Paul Reiser, Robin Williams, and many, many more!

The book includes several appendices, including reference information on every film mentioned in the book with capsule reviews, a recommended reading section, and a list of b-movie web sites for your surfing pleasure.

If you're a fan of bad movies (and who isn't?) this is the book for you! It's in the vein of the Golden Turkey awards but without the pretention. The authors can appreciate the awful-ness
of some films so their writing reflects a bit of fondness too. It's also laugh-out loud funny! Pick it up today!!!
Aside from being a subversive expose of all that Hollywood hype, this book is extremely funny. The authors obviously love the bad movies they write about, but they aren't fooled by them. This should make you look at your local video selection in a whole new light!
"Reel Shame" made me laugh out loud, particularly the very visual descriptions of Jack Palance doing bizarre things in fine, fine cinematic works. Extremely amusing!
I thought this would be about the making of bad movies -- interviews with actors and directors, discussions of backstage business, and so on. Nope, it's yet another book of reviews of bad movies. But while Roger Ebert and others assume that lots of people watch movies, these guys state explicitly that the only people who watch movies are heterosexual men. Emphasis on the heterosexual. Boy, are they heterosexual! Evidently the only reason the authors -- or anyone else -- watch movies is to get a glimpse of cleavage.
Gee, I thought a few heterosexual men occasionally thought of something besides cleavage -- guess not. Anyhow, the reviews are more offensive than the movies themselves. You'll need a shower after this one.
Trash Obsession
OK, the authors are literate and clever but I was suprised at how unfunny this book is. Perhaps this can be excused, given the difficulty of the task (making funny remarks about incredibly bad movies) but somehow this comes off as mostly smug and sarcastic.

There are lots of fun books on B movies and part of the fun is the photos of those cheap sets and wacky costumes. Incredibly, Reel Shame has no illustrations at all. Not one.
What does it mean when your personal collection is full of the same movies that authors Christopher Holland and Scott Hamilton have listed as 'Bad Movies'? It means that you now have to reclassify your collection from your personal favorites to 'A study in bad movie-ology'.
What? You don't HAVE a collection of bad movie-ology? Then you need this book. Where else can you get a complete review of some of the worst movies made by some of the best known stars? The authors point out some of the worst cinema made and keep you laughing the entire time. Until you remember that Mazes and Monsters made your Mom throw out 1/2 of your D&D library.
If you are a fan of MST3K, bad Sci-Fi, or horrible acting by people that should have known better, this is the book for you!
I have a true weakness for bad films and this book covers them. The only drawback is I wish they would of covered more films.
This book is a rare find: few works are so devoted to the lowliest and most shameful aberrations to sully the silver screen, and even fewer offer such sharp writing and humorous takes on film conventions. Like a rose emerging from a manure-fertilized tract of mud...you know what? Forget the flowery praise, let's keep it simple: go out and read this book, I doubt you'll be disappointed. While it is a must-have for the serious b-movie fan, the casual filmgoer will also find it engrossing, revealing as it does the dark origins and career foibles of the top Hollywood illuminati. And more importantly, it's both hilarious and safety-conscious (yes, safety-conscious...bearing numerous warnings lest we someday find ourselves watching such seizure-inducing fare as Tentacles or The Lonely Lady.)
