Wear your color coordinated helmets, because BMX Bandits is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: This is an odd one. It’s a carefree children’s adventure movie filmed by a pioneer of violent, trashy Oz-ploitation flicks. BMX Bandits takes a while to deliver the bicycle-related goods and some of the stunts may seem tame by today’s standards, but overall this is a harmless kid’s movie filled with snarky, wise-cracking Australians.

Put on your X-ray specs, because ‘If Looks Could Kill’ is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: A comedic send-up of spy movies featuring Richard Grieco as a high-school French student turned involuntary secret agent, ‘If Looks Could Kill’ is both surprisingly gruesome and surprisingly humorous. It’s just the right level of dumb to be entertaining. Special thanks to Jeff Phillips for requesting this one through the IndieGoGo campaign.

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

Light up your cigar, because Howard the Duck is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,
featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting and Rachel Pandich of Skin Crawling Comics.
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.

Tune up your sitar, because The Love Guru is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or title above to download our review of the film, featuring Zac Bertschy of ANNCast.
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.

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