Monitor your processor run times, because Appleseed: Alpha is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Dave and Joel from Fast Karate for the Gentleman.
Review in a Nutshell: Appleseed: Alpha has excellent visual design and some good character moments, but a weak antagonist, a derivative plot, and far too little action. Still, it has cyborgs driving things, so A+ / 5 Stars / Would Buy from Again.
Oh, Two Horns. You so crazy.

Don’t let anyone remove the firing pin from your pistol, because Bullet to the Head is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Mom.
Review in a Nutshell: In terms of tone, narrative, and characterization, Bullet to the Head is an atavism – a throwback to an earlier time period. It’s also an unlikely hybrid of hard-boiled crime drama and buddy-cop action film. Some of it works, some of it doesn’t, but Bullet is worth examining if only to see how drastically modern film sensibilities have changed.

Come on out of your shell, because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER.
Review in a Nutshell: This one’s a bloodbath. I believe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is a bad movie that does not hold up to starry-eyed childhood nostalgia. My co-hosts disagree. I get to write these blurbs, though, so I WIN! MWA HA HA!

Fuel up the Mach 5, because Speed Racer is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,
featuring Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Thomas Pandich.
Review in a Nutshell: Critically savaged and commercially unsuccessful, Speed Racer is a visually imaginative family film directed by the Wachowskis. Some people will not be able to enjoy the film’s super-saturated color palette and kinetic editing, but upon re-watching it, I discovered a film with a surprisingly resonant emotional core.

Get ready to walk the Road to Hell, because Shogun Assassin (aka Lone Wolf and Cub) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the British DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film,
featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: A mash-up of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films, Shogun Assassin stands on its own merits thanks to its original contributions, such as the weird electronic soundtrack and Daigoro’s voice-over. It’s an excellent introduction into the world of chanbara and jidaigeki films.

Hold onto your Power Poles, because Dragonball: Evolution is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the podcast,
featuring Gerald Rathkolb, Mike Dent, and Evan Minto.
Review in a Nutshell: A cinematic disaster on multiple levels, Dragonball: Evolution nonetheless has glimmers of competence that make for an entertaining, if cringe-inducing, viewing.
