redline_banner

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.

Final Thought:

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

Australians Always Observe Proper Helmet Safety.

Wear your color coordinated helmets, because BMX Bandits 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: This is an odd one. It’s a carefree children’s adventure movie filmed by a pioneer of violent, trashy Oz-ploitation flicks. BMX Bandits takes a while to deliver the bicycle-related goods and some of the stunts may seem tame by today’s standards, but overall this is a harmless kid’s movie filled with snarky, wise-cracking Australians.

All Grieco, All the Time.

Put on your X-ray specs, because ‘If Looks Could Kill’ is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: A comedic send-up of spy movies featuring Richard Grieco as a high-school French student turned involuntary secret agent, ‘If Looks Could Kill’ is both surprisingly gruesome and surprisingly humorous. It’s just the right level of dumb to be entertaining. Special thanks to Jeff Phillips for requesting this one through the IndieGoGo campaign.

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~~~~~!

“Is There a Doctor in the House?”

dr-giggles-1992

Make sure you warm up that stethoscope, because Dr. Giggles is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Tom ‘Internet Terrorist’ Pandich and Kristina ‘ChibiUFO’ Foster.

Review in a Nutshell: Dr. Giggles is a strange film. Ostensibly a horror movie, Larry Drake plays the titular slasher-villain like a live-action cartoon, while the rest of the cast is mostly dramatically serious in their roles. The contrast is jarring, and although I appreciate terrible puns as much as the next person, the movie never quite strikes the proper balance between horror and humor.

FINAL THOUGHT:

drgiggles01

Yes, this scene is accompanied by at least one “give me a hand” pun. It’s mandatory.

Cavemen with Laser Rifles, Pew Pew.

yor_hunter_from_future_poster_01_0

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.
