Hold on to your magical bo staves, because The Forbidden Kingdom 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.

Review in a Nutshell: With glimmers of its true potential shining through despite poor editing and a hackneyed script, The Forbidden Kingdom nevertheless manages to squander an enormous amount of talent.  Our whopping 63 minute podcast explains all the reasons why Sean describes this film as a ‘kung fu love letter written by an illiterate’.

U Mad, Bro?

Break out the lame Internet jokes, because Trollhunter 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:  An extremely dry, Scandinavian comedy masquerading as a found-footage horror film, Trollhunter is a movie filled with environmental metaphors, social commentary, and trolls.

Dust off your loincloth, because Deathstalker is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell:  Ostensibly a sword and sorcery fantasy, Deathstalker is mostly an excuse to show female nudity and male semi-nudity.  This film puts the ‘exploit’ in exploitation film.

This movie contains:

ds001

Rubber Puppets.

ds002

Wrasslin’.

Petulant Wizards.

The Ballad of Duck Cheesecake

Hold onto you noses, because Conan the Barbarian (2011) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster 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:  Although the film contains good casting and some truly hilarious moments, the new Conan film is missing a certain something that puts our guest hosts ill at ease.  Paul still considers it to be the “feel-good family comedy of the year.”

Ruining Katherin’s Childhood (Again)

Hold onto your Omega Hedrons, because Supergirl is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the return of Katherin “the Great”.

Review in a Nutshell:  A super hero film from a more innocent time, Supergirl seems painfully unsophisticated by modern standards.  Nonetheless it has some interesting imagery and a plot that can best be described as “completely bonkers”.

This movie contains:

Drunken Wizards.

KILLDOZER!

A Black Magic Woman.

Revenge of the Ugly Puppy Syndrome

Fire up your motorcycle, because Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 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 Rachel Pandich, author of Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  This movie is enjoyably terrible, and the review strays into some surprisingly intellectual territory.  We are all shameless Nicolas Cage apologists. Do not believe our lies.

On Artful Dodgers and Tangerine Dreams…

Break out the vomit bucket, because The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring co-host Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Half heart-warming kid’s movie with a message, half boorish toilet humor comedy, this film is painfully unwatchable.

Punching Snakemen, Savin’ the President

Hook up the electrodes, because Dreamscape 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:  Aside from a questionable “dream invasion” or two, Dreamscape is a fun little film that plays with the idea of psychic powers and dream manipulation.  Despite having a small budget, it has numerous strong performances and some decent special effects.

This movie contains:

SCIENCE!

The nefarious George Wendt?

Tragic Snake Face.

Julian Sands, Handsome Devil

Hide the druid stones, because Warlock: The Armageddon is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Perhaps it was in questionable taste to release a review of a violent, supernatural horror movie filled with druids and dark magic on Easter Sunday…
