“I’m a Scientist, You’re an @$$hole.”

Put on your professorial hiking gear, because The War of the Gargantuas is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Japanese Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell: A somewhat strange sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World that stars Russ Tamblyn of all people, The War of the Gargantuas is a throwback to the golden era of Toho’s giant monster films.

GME! Anime Fun Time Episode #28 – Ninja Scroll

July is coming to a close, and it’s time for some more Anime Fun. Join Tom and I as we reminisce about Ninja Scroll (known in Japan as Jūbē Ninpūchō), 1993 animated film that recalls the dark and nihilistic samurai exploitation films of the Seventies. CLICK HERE or on the Bluray cover of the film, which features discussion on Ninja’s Scroll‘s place in American fandom as well as many a paean to the lonely death of Bee Guy.

ERRATA: When talking about samurai movies involving hidden gold mines, I accidentally conflated two different films: Goyokin (1969) and Sword of the Beast (1965), both of which are directed by Hideo Gosha. I also mispronounced Gemma’s name as “Genma” throughout the entire podcast without realizing it. My bad.

The Tragic Demise of Chocolate Chip Charlie

Control your sweet-tooth, because The Stuff is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell: Existing in the uneasy space known as “horror-comedy”, The Stuff is a film that aspires to both gruesome “body melty” style thrills and scathing social commentary, with mixed results. Are you eating it, or is it eating you?

GME Anime Fun Time #27 – Kemono Friends

Due to various circumstances, we missed the entire month of June, but now we’re back and it’s Time to have some Anime Fun. In this episode, Tom, Andrew Collie, Dylan Kielman, and I discuss Kemono Friends, an unlikely 3DCG TV anime from 2017 whose moe cuteness belies a surprisingly rich and somber story-line. CLICK HERE or on the image above to tune in for discussion that includes digressions on classic mecha anime, love-sick penguins, Toei’s tokusatsu assassin Redman, and various slanders aimed out our fellow Anitwitter friends.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: All For the Want of a Doctor Pepper

Has it really been just over a year since the last installment in our Godzilla movie theme? The answer is “yes”, but now Anthony Wendel is back to talk about the first entry in the Heisei Series (technically filmed during the Showa Period), The Return of Godzilla, aka Gojira (1984), aka Godzilla 1985. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to download our review of the film. Topics of discussion include the recently-resolved difficulties of acquiring the original Japanese version of the film, late Cold War nuclear anxiety, and more.

Droppin’ Bombs with M.O.M.

Strap on your fur loincloth, because The Barbarians (1987) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the title or the DVD cover above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell: A thoroughly generic Conan the Barbarian rip-off buoyed up by its scattershot production design and the exuberant performances of Peter and David Paul (aka the Barbarian Brothers), The Barbarians (1987) is everything I’ve ever wanted in a Cannon Film Group film directed by Ruggero Deodato.

“Let me know if you see a Radio Shack.”

Break out the gopher-chucks, because Kung Pow! Enter the Fist is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: One part straightforward kung fu revenge flick, sixteen parts pure absurdity, Kung Pow! Enter the Fist is what happens when you give Steve Oedekerk free rein to work his patented nuttiness on a martial arts movie spoof. It’s an acquired taste, to be sure. Wee oo wee oo.
