Interview with Katrina Hill aka Action Flick Chick

Friday, April 9, 2010 at 12:56 pm

This week’s guest on Critical Juncture is the lovely and talented Katrina Hill, also known by her alter-ego as the Action Flick Chick. In addition to offering news and views on action movies, horror movies, and whatever else strikes her fancy, Katrina is a resident of Dallas–a fact that always scores brownie points with this lifelong Texan. She’s also become something of a phenomenon since being honored as G4’s Next Woman of the Web. Seemingly everywhere, you can catch the antics of the Action Flick Chick on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Just prepare to be amazed, as we’re talking about a woman who’s fought Godzilla and lived to tell the tale (on her website, at least).

Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present Katrina Hill aka Action Flick Chick…

Only Good Movies: What’s the first movie that you remember seeing?
Katrina Hill: The first movie in the theater I remember seeing is Hook, at a friend’s birthday party.

OGM: What’s the most recent movie you’ve seen?
KH: As far as theatrical releases, I just watched Kick-Ass. At home, I just watched Death Bed: The Bed that Eats! That’s right people, be afraid of your bed lest it eats you! I also just watched Black Dynamite! And American Ninja 4: The Annihilation, and Bitch Slap…I watch a ton of movies.

OGM: Is there a particular film which you feel is criminally underrated?
KH: I know I should pick some meaningful film with a great message like most other people do. However, I’m the Action Flick Chick, so I’m going to have to pick Crank 2: High Voltage! This is a fantastic action film. It’s funny and has non-stop action. Its completely outrageous plot makes it the perfect movie to watch, relax, and just have a good time.

OGM: Which director do you feel has turned out the best overall body of work?
KH: Really there are two directors that have produced most of my favorite films. James Cameron and Sylvester Stallone. James Cameron gave us True Lies and some of the Terminator films, not to mention Avatar and Titanic. They did alright in the box office ;) . And Stallone…well he’s Rambo! He directed some of the Rambo films and Rocky films. Just admit it, those are some great films. And he is giving us The Expendables in August 2010, which I am super excited about.

OGM: From an artistic standpoint, which film do you think is most important?
KH: It definitely has to be Ernest Goes to Jail.

OGM: All artsy considerations aside, which movie is your personal favorite?
KH: Tremors is my all-time favorite film. I’ve watched it since I was way too young to watch that kind of film, and it has held up well over the years.

OGM: In your opinion, which film is entirely overrated?
KH: Avatar

OGM: Have you ever walked out of the theatre during a film? If so, what movie was playing?
KH: I’ve only done that once, and it was during Say It Isn’t So. The main reason I walked out of that one was because I was dating a very uptight guy at the time. As soon as the film revealed that the main couple might be brother and sister, he said he wasn’t watching that filth and we left. I wanted to stick around and see if they were actually brother and sister or if it was all just a big misunderstanding. I’m pretty frickin’ sure it was a misunderstanding, but it still would’ve been nice to see the end of the movie, you uptight ass!

OGM: In your mind, what’s the ultimate goal of a movie critic?
KH: My ultimate goal is to save people money. To make sure they spend money on the right movies whether it’s renting, buying, or seeing a film in theater. I also try to make people laugh and raise some appreciation for the action film genre.

OGM: Time to look into the future. Do you predict any major changes for the movie industry over the next 25 years?
KH: We will be flooded with remakes…wait, that’s what’s happening right now. Then we’ll be flooded with remakes of the remakes.

OGM: Here’s another chance to predict the future. Name a relatively unknown actor or actress who’ll be a huge star within five years.
KH: That would have to be the Action Flick Chick! I love her!

OGM: Besides yourself, who’s your favorite movie critic to read?
KH: Just to keep up with all the non action/horror films in the world, I do like to read Rick Swift at www.iratefilms.com or my Filmgirl force members.

Kat, you are too kind, for a bad ass I mean :)

BTW, you are authorized to see Date Night, there was a little action in there, and I guarantee you at least a few chuckles.
