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.

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.

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.

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.
