Fire up the Wave Motion Gun, because Space Battleship Yamato (2010) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Tim Eldred of Cosmo DNA.
Review in a Nutshell: Opinions are divided on Space Battleship Yamato. On one hand, it’s a very faithful adaptation of the genre-making anime from the Seventies. On the other hand, some of the changes that were made for time and budget reasons are likely to upset some of the long-time fans.

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.

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.

Oil up your biceps and slap on your sandals, because Hercules (1983) 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: Like another film directed by Luigi Cozzi, Hercules is a visually exuberant, narratively bizarre movie filled with high concept ideas and low budget special effects. A tribute to the “peplum” films of the 1950s and 1960s, Hercules has a sort of insane charm that makes the viewing experience wonderful … as long as you don’t happen to be the younger sister of the host of the Greatest Movie EVER podcast.
This movie contains:
Not to be confused with ‘Tiny’ Lister.
