Finally, It’s Kamiya’s Time to Shine!

Hold on to you Metis Cannon, because Zeiram is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Mike Dent of Vintage Henshin.

Review in a Nutshell: Despite it’s occasional pacing issues, Zeiram is a low-budget, high concept tokusatsu science fiction film that serves as a great introduction to the medium. The prop and monster designs are especially noteworthy.

Bonus Episode: Jason Vorhees, Hero of the Proletariat

Hang on to your machetes, because Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the title or the movie poster above to download our review of the film, featuring Kyle “ChibiUFO” Foster.

Review in a Nutshell: A self-aware slasher made long before Scream cemented the conventions of subgenre, Jason Lives has a brisk pace and an irreverent sense of humor that make it both an interesting 80’s cultural artifact and an easy viewing experience.

Who Wants A Newspaper Montage!?!

Fire up your radio watch, because Dick Tracy is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell: Top notch special effects make-up and innovative production design can’t salvage a film whose narrative is muddled and murky and whose tone varies wildly from scene to scene. Disney’s answer to Batman (1989), Dick Tracy is more interesting as a cultural artifact than as pleasant viewing experience.

When a Shark Gets a Taste for MURDER…

Hold onto your windsurfing boards, because The Last Shark is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Phillip (formerly known as Eeeper of Eeeper’s Choice).

Review in a Nutshell:  A surprisingly compelling and emotionally gritty Italian creature feature exploitation film, The Last Shark is much more entertaining that it has any right to be considering the plot is a direct rip-off of Jaws and Jaws II.

No, Not That House. No, Not That One, Either.

 

Watch out for white kitty cats, because House (1977) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the title or the Bluray cover above to download our review of the film, featuring Tom Pandich of Shonen Dump.

 

Review in a Nutshell: An extremely strange and relentlessly artsy “ghost and fantasy” movie, House (1977) is a unique cinematic experience and well worthy of critical consideration. It’s not so much scary as nightmarish, and everyone should watch it at least once, if only on a dare.

A Series of Questionable Hairpieces.

nemesis

Hold on to your humanity, because Nemesis (1992) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest co-host Tom Aznable.

Review in a Nutshell: A straight-to-video cyberpunk science fiction mash-up of Blade Runner, Snatcher, and The Terminator, Nemesis (1992) makes up for its derivative story with incredible stunt-work, excellent practical special effects, and ludicrous gun-play. It’s a tremendously enjoyable little film.

Bonus Episode: The Quatro Must Flow…

Obey the three drink minimum, because FP2: Beats of Rage is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder.

This bonus episode is brought to you thanks to the generous contributions of the GME! Podcast patrons on Patreon.

Review in a Nutshell: A sequel that leans in hard on the rural / suburban absurdities of the first film, FP2: Beats of Rage is a loving homage to very specific period of Millenial pop culture, and whether its style of crass humor and epic fantasy nonsense will appeal to you is anybody’s guess. It hit the sweet spot for me, but my guest feels the film could have been even more exaggerated.

In The Immortal Words of Shakespeare, “Eff Off, Dracula!”.

Hold onto your blood, because The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Oli “InvidNinja92” Bulmer.

Review in a Nutshell: An ambitious production troubled by a clash of directorial styles and studio difficulties, the Hammer Films / Shaw Brothers co-production that pits martial heroes against Dracula and his hordes of jiangshi servants is not quite the chocolate / peanut butter combination you would expect from a film that mixes Gothic horror with kung fu action.

May I Offer You a Roast Iguana in These Trying Times?

Strap on your post-apocalyptic rugby armor, because The Blood of Heroes is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Kara Dennison.

Review in a Nutshell: A sports movie set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, The Blood of Heroes is a surprisingly uplifting film with a spartan script and great performances, make-up, and production design. Don’t sleep on this one, folks. It’s fun on the bun.

Ooooooo, Spooky Vampires!

Pray for daylight, because Near Dark is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the particularly egregious Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Kyle “ChibiUFO” Foster.

Review in a Nutshell: Part Western, part romance, part vampire film, part motorcycle gang road movie, Near Dark is a film with revolutionary ideas and strong performances that is weakened by the simplicity with which it solves its central problem. Definitely worth a viewing or two.
