featuring guest hosts Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Rachel Pandich, author of Aspire.
Review in a Nutshell: An Indonesian martial arts movie written and directed by a Welsh man, The Raid: Redemption is not just a typical action movie. It blends drama and suspense with some of the most breath-taking and technically accomplished fight choreography in recent cinema history to create a tight, tense, thoroughly engrossing experience.

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 suspenseful film with beautiful composition but a somewhat surreal plot, Deep Red is considered by many to be the pinnacle of the giallo subgenre.
This is an onager. It’s actually from Asia, not Africa.

Get ready to bench-press some strippers, because Kiss of Death is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film.

This film contains:
THE CAGE IS DISPLEASED.
Some upper-middle class jerk and his glass of wine.

Don’t drink the amber rum, because The Devil’s Backbone is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: The Devil’s Backbone is a Gothic tale of injustice and inevitability set during the Spanish Civil War. Think of it as a primer for Pan’s Labyrinth, with less magic, more realism, and no Doug Jones.
This movie contains:
Mom and I take a crack at The Beast Must Die. Watch for the Werewolf Break!
