Review in a Nutshell: Featuring Yuen Woo-ping’s directorial debut, Jackie Chan’s first big break-out performance, and the creation of Simon Yuen’s legendary “Sam Seed / Beggar So” character, Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow is an important and entertaining martial arts film.

Before there was JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, super fabulous manga auteur Hirohiko Araki created Baoh, a silly, stylish, ultra-violent shonen manga that was adapted in 1989 into an OAV with animation by Studio Pierrot. CLICK HERE or on the image above to join Tom, Dylan, and Paul as they take a trip down memory lane and discuss such subjects as the joys of bad dubbing and exquisite dog-murder in the latest installment of GME! Anime Fun Time.

Gas up the Sea-Doo, because Deep Rising 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 “Saint Mort” Kelly of the Horror Movie Night podcast.
Review in a Nutshell: A typical Stephen Summers action-horror movie with some questionable screenwriting and some dodgy CG, Deep Rising is none-the-less remembered fondly by many fans. I am not one of those fans.

Hold onto your guitars, because Miami Connection 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 passion project made by film-makers whose reach far exceeded their grasp, Miami Connection is an earnest and enthusiastic entry in the excesses of Eighties independent film. What other movie features drug-dealing, motorcycle-riding ninjas squaring off against a tae kwon do rock band?

Gas up the 1967 Chevy Impala, because Phantom Town (also known as Spooky Town) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the VHS box cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: As far as low budget, “Weird West” children’s films about a suburban family succumbing to the depredations of an unspeakable Lovecraftian eldritch horror go, Phantom Town isn’t bad. Okay, it’s actually pretty bad, but its bizarre premise alone makes it worth watching at least once.
Here is a link to Erin Finnegan’s Puppet VR Murder Mystery Kickstarter Project. Good luck, Erin!
And here is what the cover of the 2013 DVD released by Moonbeam Entertainment looks like. Too spooky!

Tune up your trucks, because Sorcerer is 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 commercial and critical failure in 1977, Sorcerer has been rediscovered thanks to its release on Bluray. A tense, anxious, and nihilistic film, Sorcerer is considered by some film historians to be one of the last great films of the “New Hollywood” period. Some of the action sequences have to be seen to be believed.
ERRATA: I accidentally referred to the 1950’s movie with the giant, radioactive locusts as The Day the World Ended. The correct title is Beginning of the End.
