Fire up the Whizzer, because Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the Internet’s Mike Toole.
Review in a Nutshell: Filmed in the 70s, set in the 30s, Doc Savage feels like a film trapped in the 50s. Hampered by a small budget and an inconsistent tone, this film could have done great things, but instead it ends up being relegated to a campy adventure film for the kiddies. I love it anyway.
This movie contains:
Ron Ely, Ubermensch.

Strap on your hawk wings and your emerald green leggings, because Flash Gordon is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Ken Nabbe, aka The Internet’s Joey Snackpants.
Review in a Nutshell: A film that wallows a little too much in its own sense of campiness, Flash Gordon nevertheless has great costumes, colorful sets, and solid model design. The supporting characters, especially the villains, really steal the show.

Hide your secret decoder rings, because The Shadow is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherine the Great.
Review in a Nutshell: Similar to films such as The Phantom and The Rocketeer, The Shadow is a period adventure film featuring action, romance, and a nice sense of style. Some of the CG special effects haven’t aged so well, but the movie is still fun for children of all ages.
This movie contains:
Alec Baldwin as Fu Manchu.
The man responsible for Mongolian Barbeque.
Invisible Skyscrapers. (You can’t see it. It’s invisible.)
This movie does not contain:
David Bowie’s Codpiece.
