Vincenzo Averello Attempts to Murder Us.

s_g_vhs

In our ongoing quest to fulfill the IndieGoGo campaign perks, Sean and I tackle The Stranger and the Gunfighter (aka El kárate, el Colt y el impostor, aka Blood Money).

It’s a fusion of spaghetti Western and Shaw Brothers kung fu film that stars Lee Van Cleef and Lieh Lo.

It ought to be awesome, right? Click on the VHS cover or the title above to download our review of the film to find out.

Review in a Nutshell: This movie is bad. Really, really, really bad. Not the good kind of bad. The bad kind of bad.

Pay no attention to the fact that it’s September 14! Here’s the completely punctual and not-at-all-delayed August episode of GME! Anime Fun Time. In this episode, Tom and I join forces with Gerald Rathkolb of Anime World Order to talk about ancient, out-of-print, unloved science fiction cartoons. CLICK HERE or on the Laser disc cover above to download our discussion of Crusher Joe in both its movie and OAV forms.

Final Thought:

Butterfly Kisses of Death

Sharpen up your sickles, because Nightmare City 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:  The very definition of Z-grade Italian zombie knock-off films, Nightmare City is one of those films that just you have to experience to truly understand.

No Funny Tagline. This Film is Great.

You’d better create a rock-solid alibi, because Le Samourai is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Suggested by listener Eric Barroso as part of the IndieGoGo campaign, Le Samourai is a minimalist French neo-noir crime drama from 1967. It’s an exquisitely composed film that is at once bleak, ambiguous, and wonderfully suspenseful.

Inescapable Fart Joke

Put some underpants on your head and make silly voices,

because Master of Disguise is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

featuring Andrew from Collection-DX and The VEEF Show.

Review in a Nutshell:  Master of Disguise is a fascinating mess. It’s a comedy that isn’t funny. It’s a children’s movie filled with references that children wouldn’t understand. It’s a terrible film that all but killed Dana Carvey’s cinematic career, and yet I find it strangely compelling in a manner that is difficult to describe.

Bonus Content: Pony Doomsday

zap

Better late than never, it’s another pony round table with me, Neil, and Kara exploring the highs and lows of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 4. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the show.

Review in a Nutshell: This is a long one, nearly two hours of pony-related nerdiness, including an episode-by-episode breakdown of the entire season.

I apologize for the sound quality in this one; it was the first episode I recorded using the new recording method, and I still hadn’t quite figured out how to mix the levels while recording through Skype.

Jimmy Bobo’s Slow-Exploding Boat House

Don’t let anyone remove the firing pin from your pistol, because Bullet to the Head is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: In terms of tone, narrative, and characterization, Bullet to the Head is an atavism – a throwback to an earlier time period. It’s also an unlikely hybrid of hard-boiled crime drama and buddy-cop action film. Some of it works, some of it doesn’t, but Bullet is worth examining if only to see how drastically modern film sensibilities have changed.
