It’s a new year, and what better way to celebrate than with a comprehensive review that barely scratches the surface of the wonders of One Punch Man?
CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the 2015 anime TV series (with bonus manga discussion), featuring Daryl Surat of Anime World Order, regular co-host Tom Pandich, and special guest host Ruth Gwaltney.
We talk about humor, narrative structure, and what it takes to be a hero in this modern world.
Don’t let Saitama’s try-hard appearance in the first key visual dissuade you. One Punch Man is primarily a comedy.

Polish up your kali sticks and whack some demons in the face, because I, Frankenstein is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the lobby poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: Critically panned and commercially a bomb, I, Frankenstein had the potential to be an entertaining supernatural action flick. Unfortunately, the script never manages to glue together its disparate elements, and as a result the Frankenstein character feels like an afterthought in the movie that bears his name.

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.

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!
