“Is There a Doctor in the House?”

Make sure you warm up that stethoscope, because Dr. Giggles is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Tom ‘Internet Terrorist’ Pandich and Kristina ‘ChibiUFO’ Foster.

Review in a Nutshell: Dr. Giggles is a strange film. Ostensibly a horror movie, Larry Drake plays the titular slasher-villain like a live-action cartoon, while the rest of the cast is mostly dramatically serious in their roles. The contrast is jarring, and although I appreciate terrible puns as much as the next person, the movie never quite strikes the proper balance between horror and humor.

FINAL THOUGHT:

Yes, this scene is accompanied by at least one “give me a hand” pun. It’s mandatory.

February has come and gone, and that means it’s time for another episode of GME! Anime Fun Time. This time, join Paul, Tom, and special guest David Cabrera of Kawaiiko-chan!! Gaming no Korner as they lament their wasted childhoods spent playing Sega hardware consoles and explore the wacky comedy, Hi-sCool! Seha Girls, in which various pieces of Sega hardware are personified as cute little moe girls having dumb adventures in the worlds of Sega video games.

Ducks are Horrifying.

Light up your cigar, because Howard the Duck is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: A terrible mish-mash of raunchy adult comedy with family-friendly summer adventure movie, Howard the Duck is legendarily bad. How it managed to garner a cult following despite its numerous flaws continues to confound explanation. Rachel and Sean love it, though.

Some People Call Him Maurice?

Tune up your sitar, because The Love Guru is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Remember that scene in Hellraiser where the guy is playing with the Lament Configuration and all the hooks come out of the walls and tear him to pieces? This movie is like that, only in bad comedy form.

GME! Anime Fun Time Episode #06 – Princess Jellyfish

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.

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

Inescapable Fart Joke

Put some underpants on your head and make silly voices,

because Master of Disguise is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring Andrew from Collection-DX and The VEEF Show.

Review in a Nutshell:  Master of Disguise is a fascinating mess. It’s a comedy that isn’t funny. It’s a children’s movie filled with references that children wouldn’t understand. It’s a terrible film that all but killed Dana Carvey’s cinematic career, and yet I find it strangely compelling in a manner that is difficult to describe.

Mike Jittlov is the Good Kind of Wizard.

Break out your LD players or your 16mm projectors,

because The Wizard of Speed and Time is the Greatest Movie EVER.

featuring celebrity translator Neil Nadelman.

Review in a Nutshell: A film that is both a love-letter to the magic of making movies and also a scathing condemnation of the way that Hollywood does business, The Wizard of Speed and Time is a highly improbable film that peels back the curtain on special effects techniques that are rapidly becoming a lost art.
