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.

Final Thought:

Let’s look at a few results of the “Screencap a Random Scene from Redline to Use as Your Computer Wallpaper” Challenge.

Shine On, You Crazy Psychics

Push-2009

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.

Final Thought:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA~~~~~!

Cavemen with Laser Rifles, Pew Pew.

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.

FINAL THOUGHT:

The infamous hang-gliding scene.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: Scads of Ape-Murder

stomprompzillathrilla

It’s that time again. Time for another Godzilla movie review. Time for the three Godzilla fans in the audience to rejoice and everyone else to despair. This time, Mike Dent and I dish on Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, the penultimate Showa-era Godzilla film. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to download our review of the film, featuring much love for shady Interpol agents and the shaggy King Caesar.

Ducks are Horrifying.

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.

Not to be confused with Odin: Photon Space Sailer Starlight

space-battleship-yamato

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.

Dinosaur Disco Fever

Fry up some chicken, because Carnosaur is 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: Carnosaur is a gruesome, low-budget, Roger Corman-produced Jurassic Park knock-off. Katherin does not appreciate its many rich, deep layers of nuance and social commentary.
