Hold onto your brains, because Scanners is the Greatest Movie EVER! Click on the movie poster or the title above to
download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: Often mis-classified as a horror film, Scanners is better described as a genre-blending science fiction film with elements of espionage and body horror. Patrick McGoohan is full of bombast and bravura and Michael Ironside is delightfully villainous, and the special make-up effects are still horrifying and grotesque even today.

We’re back, fully licensed and fueled up to have some more Anime Fun Time with our special guest Basil from the OSMCast. This time we’re talking about the 2009 anime film, Redline, directed by Takeshi Koike. Topics of discussion include this under-appreciated film as well as Tom’s staggering Ranma 1/2 addiction and Basil’s improbable fascination with shojo and sports anime. CLICK HERE or on the Youtube banner above to download our review of the film. While you’re at, you can watch Manga Entertainment’s official English dubbed version of the film here.
Let’s look at a few results of the “Screencap a Random Scene from Redline to Use as Your Computer Wallpaper” Challenge.
We didn’t talk enough about the Boin Sisters.
Princess Supergrass is best princess.
It’s a dog-eat-dog world.

Hold onto your neurons, because Push (2009) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Clarissa from Anime World Order.
Review in a Nutshell: Push (2009) is a high concept action / science fiction film with surprisingly well realized characters and some genuinely entertaining moments. With a little tighter editing, it could have been a fun little cinematic gem, but as it stands its more a diamond in the rough.

Hold on to your fur boots and your flint ax-heads, because Yor: The Hunter from the Future is undeniably 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: A zany mash-up of post-apocalyptic and prehistoric films, Yor: The Hunter from the Future is buoyed up by the charming performance of Reb Brown as a futuristic caveman with perfect hair and a winning smile. Also included are lethal robots, savage tribes, and giant rubber dinosaurs.
The infamous hang-gliding scene.

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.
