Let your freak flag fly, because Nightbreed is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring ‘Internet Terrorist’ Tom Pandich and Violence Jill.
Review in a Nutshell: Clive Barker is a weird dude and Canada is a strange place in this dark fantasy / supernatural romance that was originally miss-advertised as a slasher flick. The Director’s Cut of Nightbreed is a superior version of the film in nearly every respect, although Paul still has his reservations. See the film for its imaginative make-up effects and grim sense of humor.

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.

It’s a new year, and we’re ready to have some more Anime Fun Time! Join Andrew and Paul as they try to explain the Byzantine narrative contortions of Tatakau Shisho, aka The Book of Bantorra, to an unsuspecting Tom. CLICK HERE or on the DVD cover above to download our review of the show. Discussion includes lame super powers, the perils of adapting a series of light novels into animated form, and the better aspects of sexy but psychotic librarians.
As Andrew says, this show is anime as @#$%.

Hold onto your (robot) butts, because Starchaser: The Legend of Orin is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the inexplicable movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Oli Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: Starchaser is an oddity. A 3D film with rotoscoped animation, Starchaser is also a blatant Star Wars knockoff filled with weird religious symbolism and uncomfortable subtext. Watch it at your peril.

Break out your Guitar Hero controller, because My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Equestria Girls Rainbow Rocks is the greatest movie EVER!
Click on the title or the deceptive DVD cover above to download our review of the film,
featuring Neil Nadelman and Kara Dennison.
Review in a Nutshell: At first glance, a shallow cash-grab sequel of a blatant toy-shilling spin-off. In actuality, a shockingly good story of struggle, failure, and redemption that surpasses the original Equestria Girls film in every way.

Better late than never, it’s another pony round table with me, Neil, and Kara exploring the highs and lows of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 4. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the show.
Review in a Nutshell: This is a long one, nearly two hours of pony-related nerdiness, including an episode-by-episode breakdown of the entire season.
I apologize for the sound quality in this one; it was the first episode I recorded using the new recording method, and I still hadn’t quite figured out how to mix the levels while recording through Skype.

You were expecting Crusher Joe, but it was me, Vampire Hunter D(io)!
Terrible meme humor aside, July is coming to a close and we’d be remiss if we didn’t offer up another quivering slab of Anime Fun Time. This time Tom and I take a look at Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, a slick albeit strange theatrical film from 2000. In a movie filled with vampires, torso-wolves, mechanical horses, steampunk tanks, and ghost lasers, can a fun time be far behind? Click on the movie title or the DVD cover above to find out!
Ghost vampires are like the worst kind of vampire.
