There’s Always Room for Dog-Murder

Broadswords and frying pans make great anti-werewolf weapons, and Dog Soldiers is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Gruesome and gory, Dog Soldiers is a fun little action-horror film with a grotesque sense of humor and great onscreen chemistry among the soldiers. The werewolf suits are pretty cool, too.

Where, oh, werewolf? Where is my Werewolf?

Get ready to howl in frustration, because An American Werewolf in Paris is not the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: This is not the worst werewolf movie in the world. It’s just a tribute…

September has come and gone, but let’s all pretend this was published on time. It’s the sixth episode of GME! Anime Fun Time, in which Clarissa and Gerald of Anime World Order join me to talk about Princess Jellyfish. Topics of discussion include embarrassing real-life otaku experiences, in-group vs. out-group behavior, the way perception and self-image shape social interactions, and whether there is an intrinsically gendered component to the concept of character growth. CLICK HERE or on the promotional image above to download our review of the show.

FINAL THOUGHT:

We sort of forgot to mention that Kuranosuke’s uncle (that’s him on the left) is the Prime Minister of Japan.

Ouroboros Pulp Rip-Off?

Load up your double-barrel sawed-off shotgun (and never fire it), because King Solomon’s Mines (1985) is probably not the Greatest Movie EVER.

Review in a Nutshell: While not the worst Indiana Jones cash-in nor the worst adaptation of H. Rider Haggard’s Allan Quatermain novels, the Canon Film Group’s version of King Solomon’s Mines is a serious contender for those titles. It’s really, really, really bad. Seriously, why is that giant spider lurking inside an active volcano?

Vincenzo Averello Attempts to Murder Us.

In our ongoing quest to fulfill the IndieGoGo campaign perks, Sean and I tackle The Stranger and the Gunfighter (aka El kárate, el Colt y el impostor, aka Blood Money).

It’s a fusion of spaghetti Western and Shaw Brothers kung fu film that stars Lee Van Cleef and Lieh Lo.

It ought to be awesome, right? Click on the VHS cover or the title above to download our review of the film to find out.

Review in a Nutshell: This movie is bad. Really, really, really bad. Not the good kind of bad. The bad kind of bad.

Final Thought:

Yes, this was the first animated appearance of the Dirty Pair.

Butterfly Kisses of Death

Sharpen up your sickles, because Nightmare City is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell:  The very definition of Z-grade Italian zombie knock-off films, Nightmare City is one of those films that just you have to experience to truly understand.
