Review in a Nutshell: It’s Jason. In Space. `Nuff said.

100% Mythologically Accurate!

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:

SPACE.

hercules02

BEARS.

hercules03

Not to be confused with ‘Tiny’ Lister.

4th DIMENSIONAL ATTACK!?!

starcrash

Strap on your space bikini, because Star Crash is definitely the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: Star Crash is an Italian Star Wars knock-off that is amazingly bad on every technical level. Ridiculous, absurd, and illogical, it manages to turn a 92 minute run time into a torturous cinematic experience that lasts an eternity. I love it. I haven’t laughed so hard in years.

This movie contains:

sc001

Leaping Cavemen.

sc002

Mind Lasers.

sc003

Joe Spinell, Space Tyrant.

See You, Space Cowboy.

Beware of space banditos, because Battle Beyond the Stars is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Bluray disc cover or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Jeff “Rich Lather” Tatarek.

Review in a Nutshell: A science fiction pastiche that borrows liberally from The Magnificent Seven and Star Wars, Battle Beyond the Stars is nonetheless a low-budget romp that showcases a young James Cameron’s eye for production design and also includes colorful performances from veteran character actors.

This movie contains:

John Saxon, Space Tyrant.

bbts02

Melancholy Lizardmen.

Hey, man. It’s impolite to point.

Emergency Podcast System: Pacific Rim

Get back in your giant robot, because Pacific Rim is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Thomas Pandich of Tomics! By Tom!!! and the Alter Ego’s podcast.

Review in a Nutshell: If you have any affection in your heart for super robot anime or giant rubber monsters, you owe it to yourself to check out Pacific Rim. It has some of the best special effects and production design you’re likely to see for some time, and it manages to be uplifting and hopeful rather than gritty and grimdark.

Faster, Robot! Kill, Kill!

Hold onto your ice cream cones, because Chopping Mall is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Max Dunn.

Review in a Nutshell:  A low budget slasher flick produced by Roger Corman and directed by Jim Wynorski, Chopping Mall is better than it has any right to be.  The killer robots steal the show.

This movie contains:

Chewing Gum.

4th Time’s a Charm?

Fire up your Thermos cannons, because Alien: Resurrection is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean Ryan of the Alpha Counter podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  Strong set design and the presence of Ron Perlman are not enough to save Alien: Resurrection, a film that is saddled with a mediocre Joss Whedon script and the bizarre cinematic affectations of Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

If Loving Robots is Wrong…

Hide the freon, because Crash and Burn is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Andrew from The Veef Show.

Review in a Nutshell:  A low-budget science fiction slasher film, Crash and Burn cribs more from The Terminator than from earlier Charles Band properties.  Along with Robot Wars, this is one of many films purported to be a sequel to Robot Jox.

This movie contains:

The Future!

Hand Trauma.

Bill Moseley, Paragon of Acting Technology.

Melancholy Robots.

Emergency Podcast System: Prometheus

We interrupt our regularly scheduled podcast to bring you this special announcement:  Prometheus is terrible.

Click on the movie poster or title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest hosts Ian Strope of the Futile Podcast and Rachel Pandich, author of indie comic book Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  Although undeniably beautiful in terms of cinematography and production design, Prometheus suffers from a poor script with writing that disintegrates into a flaming wreck by the movie’s conclusion.  Some people claim the film posses too many unanswered questions.  I claim the opposite: the film answers too many questions, and the answers it gives are dumb.
