“It’s Getting Weirder…”

Hold on to your crystal skulls, because House II: The Second Story is the Greatest Movie EVER?

Click on the title or the Blu-ray cover to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Kyle “ChibiUFO” Foster.

Review in a Nutshell: A PG-13 “sequel” to an R-rated original, House II: The Second Story is a horror comedy film that mostly works because of its strong production values, irreverent tone, and a strong performance by character actor Royal Danno as Gramps.

“He Sold His Soul for Rock ‘n’ Roll!”

Don’t bargain with the Devil, because Phantom of the Paradise is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Blu-ray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Matt “St. Mort” Kelly of Horror Movie Night.

Review in a Nutshell: A bizarre mash-up of Faust, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Picture of Dorian Gray, Phantom of the Paradise is a rock opera horror comedy that brims with brilliant visuals, outstanding songs, scathing satire and surprisingly deep and nuanced themes about power and the corruption of the creative arts.

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

 

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

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.

Bonus Episode: The Quatro Must Flow…

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

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.

“It’s High Noon at the End of the Universe?”

Shine up your sheriff badges, because Oblivion (1994) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Matt “St. Mort” Kelly from Horror Movie Night.

Review in a Nutshell: A “space Western” science fiction film with an uneven tone, surprisingly good make-up and special effects, and some questionable acting choices, Oblivion strikes an uneasy balance between being a campy comedy and a dead-serious revisionist Western film. It’s not the strongest title in Full Moon’s catalog, but it’s worth viewing at least once.

Like the Wu-Tang Clan, Neo-Noir is For the Children

There goes your childhood, because Who Framed Roger Rabbit 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: A genuine oddity, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a seamless mixture of live-action and animation in service to a Neo-Noir plot featuring conspiracy, blackmail, adultery, and gruesome, gruesome murder…all in a film ostensibly aimed at children. Seriously, folks, who was this movie for?

The Ethics of Tuna and Apple Juice.

Power up your flash lights, because Little Monsters is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: Weirdly gruesome and oddly grotesque, Little Monsters is a kid’s movie that suffers from questionable production values, an unsympathetic protagonist, and an inconsistent tone. The film falls into a nether-region somewhere between fantasy, dark comedy, and childhood buddy flick.

“Communism Was Just a Red Herring.”

Sharpen up your tiny pencil and get ready to search for secret passages, because Clue is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: A commercial and critical failure at the time of its release, Clue has since gained a cult following thanks to its snappy writing, multiple endings, and inspired comedic performances. Clue is also one of Katherin’s favorite movies.

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?

“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.
