Bone up on your ancient Egyptian heiroglyphics, because Stargate is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the poster or the title above to download our review of the film,
featuring guest host Ro from Atomic Trivia War 9000.
Review in a Nutshell: Like many of Emmerich’s other films, Stargate is long on production value and short on plot. Spader and Russell are able to bring life and personality to their characters, though, and the costumes and sets still look great nearly two decades after the film’s debut.

Hold onto your precious essence, because Lifeforce is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the UK’s own Ollie Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: Great special effects, droll British performances, and the lovely Mathilda May can’t prevent this troubled Golan / Globus production from being tugged in too many different directions at once. Is this the Greatest Movie EVER? Ollie and I disagree.

Fire up your Thermos cannons, because Alien: Resurrection is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean Ryan of the Alpha Counter podcast.
Review in a Nutshell: Strong set design and the presence of Ron Perlman are not enough to save Alien: Resurrection, a film that is saddled with a mediocre Joss Whedon script and the bizarre cinematic affectations of Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled podcast to bring you this special announcement: Prometheus is terrible.
Click on the movie poster or title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest hosts Ian Strope of the Futile Podcast and Rachel Pandich, author of indie comic book Aspire.
Review in a Nutshell: Although undeniably beautiful in terms of cinematography and production design, Prometheus suffers from a poor script with writing that disintegrates into a flaming wreck by the movie’s conclusion. Some people claim the film posses too many unanswered questions. I claim the opposite: the film answers too many questions, and the answers it gives are dumb.

Attach those alien nose-plugs, because Battlefield Earth is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest cohost Max Dunn.
Review in a Nutshell: Listen up, rat-brain! Just because a movie has an incomprehensible plot, hammy acting, ridiculous dialog, and goofy special effects does not mean it’s not the Greatest Movie EVER! Get that through your skull-bone!
The ”sharpened log fence” is actually called a “stockade”.

Fire up the Oscillation Overthruster, because Buckaroo Banzai is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest cohost Clarissa Graffeo of AnimeWorldOrder.
Review in a Nutshell: Idiosyncratic and unapologetic, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is a unique film with elements of science fiction, action, adventure, and comedy. You’ll either love it or hate it; there is no middle ground.
This movie contains:
Dr. Ian Malcolm.
Third Rock from the Sun.

Beware of mutant space geckos, because Pitch Black is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: Pitch Black is a clever little science fiction film with a used universe aesthetic and a scintillating performance by Vin Diesel as escaped convict Richard B. Riddick. Too bad David Twohy had to muck it all up in the sequel…
This movie contains:
Keith David, Space Faring Muslim.
Purple People Eaters? (Okay, that’s more of a Cyan…)
Once again we’ll venture into the Gothic imagination of Guillermo del Toro
when Sean and I review The Devil’s Backbone.
