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?

Our spooky Halloween episode of GME! Anime Fun Time is a bit late this year, as Evan Minto of Ani-Gamers, Thomas Pandich, and I take a gander at Little Witch Academia, a pair of fantasy-themed works of original net animation directed by Yoh Yoshinari and animated by Studio TRIGGER. Topics of discussion include our expectations for the upcoming Little Witch Academia TV series, our current slate of anime assignments, and Evan being transformed into a Pokémon butt.

Not to be confused with “Funky Town”.

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.

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.

A Podcast Event 3 Years in the Making

Man the oars, because Ben-Hur (1959) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Tom Pandich, Internet Terrorist.

Review in a Nutshell: Widely recognized as one of the greatest films in American cinematic history, Ben-Hur is a sprawling, epic tale of revenge and redemption. It’s also a million years long and Chuck Heston has all the on-screen charisma of chunk of granite. Are Tom and I able to pay proper reverence to a film that garnered as many Academy awards as The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King? Tune into find out.

Hold on to your guitar picks, because Six-String Samurai is the Greatest Movie EVER?

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

Review in a Nutshell: An independent film with strong production design, a great concept, and a killer soundtrack, Six-String Samurai suffers from questionable comic timing and an inconsistent tone. It’s not as entertaining as I want it to be, although Sean enjoyed it more on a second viewing.
