Strap on your sidearm, because Johnny Guitar is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Neil Nadelman.
Review in a Nutshell: An atypical Western filled with strong feminist themes, male insecurity, and sublimated sexual tension, Johnny Guitar is an oddly subversion film from the 1950s. It’s little wonder that French New Wave directors loved this film.

Charge up the Aqualungs, because Creature from the Black Lagoon is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: Originally a gimmicky 3D horror film, Creature from the Black Lagoon has aged surprisingly well, taking on layers of environmental allegory as newer generations interpret the film. The special effects and underwater photography are especially strong, but don’t discount the human drama or the sad, lonely state of the movie’s persecuted monster.

Beware of stock footage in the swamp, because Bride of the Monster is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: This movie contains Wood-en acting, lousy sets, rubber animals, and a veritable cavalcade of absurdities. I love it dearly.
