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.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: Do Not Sass Godzilla

You can’t keep a good (or even a mediocre) Godzilla down, and this time we’re looking at the aptly named Godzilla 2000 (aka Godzilla: Millenium), the first entry in Toho’s “Millenium” series of giant monster movies. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to join Jeremy and I was we share our experiences of seeing Godzilla in the theater and as we apply a perhaps too-critical lens to a movie featuring noodly space aliens and Hiroshi Abe’s impeccable fashion-sense.

This is Clearly Someone’s Fetish.

Hold on to your Edison balls, because Rock & Rule is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the title or the Bluray cover above to download our review of the film.

Review in a Nutshell: An oddball mixture of rock music and half a dozen different animation styles, Rock & Rule is hampered by technically difficulties that have little to do with the amount of talent that was poured into its production. At the time of this writing, you can catch a free, legitimate stream of the film from the official Nelvana Retro Rerun Youtube channel, but the quality is not ideal.

We’re Back, and So is a Werewolf with a Baseball Bat.

Light up your fireworks, because Silver Bullet is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: A werewolf movie plagued by odd directorial choices and studio interference, Silver Bullet nonetheless has strong performances from character actors such as Everett McGill that make it worth watching at least once.

R.I.P. Artax, We Hardly Knew Ye

 

Hold your horses, folks, because The Neverending Story is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: A weirdly existential and somewhat traumatizing West German children’s film, The Neverending Story is a cultural artifact from a very strange and very specific era of the Eighties. They say you can never go home again, and perhaps with this film, that’s true in both the literal and metaphorical senses.

Monkey See, Monkey Do.

Hold on to your helicopters, because Kong: Skull Island is most definitely the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Oli “InvidNinja92” Bulmer.

Review in a Nutshell: A gleefully violent creature-feature, Kong: Skull Island manages to leave much of the character’s colonial baggage behind. It’s a great little genre fiction romp with some surprising artistic flourishes and a wicked sense of humor.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: Heisei Lepidopteran Shenanigans

It’s Christmas, and this year we bring the gift that keeps on giving when Tom and I talk about the 1992 Godzilla vs. Mothra: The Battle for Earth, not to be confused with the 1964 Mothra vs. Godzilla. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to here us muse about giant moths, overly invasive archaeology, and what dating prospects should await anyone who dares to kidnap the Cosmos.
