“Tubular, Dude!”

Watch out for random fish monsters, because Shocking Dark is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the title or the Blu-ray cover above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Tom Pandich.

Review in a Nutshell: A Z-grade Italian exploitation film that manages to rip-off both The Terminator (1984) and Aliens (1986), Shocking Dark is none-the-less wildly entertaining in its brazenness. It truly has to be seen to be believed.

GME! Anime Fun Time Episode #31 – Cyber City Oedo 808

We’re back from beyond the grave like a vengeful cyber-ghost (or a vengeful cyber-cyborg, or a vengeful cyber-vampire) with a review of the classic early Nineties cyberpunk anime OAV series, Cyber City Oedo 808. CLICK HERE or on the Blu-ray cover above to strap on your exploding collar and take the orbital elevator to your miserable day-job at Space Jail.

“I reject your reality…”

Boot up your personal A.I. assistants, because The Dungeonmaster (1984) 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 science fiction film with heavy fantasy elements told in a series of vignettes from different directors, The Dungeonmaster (1984) is a high-concept, low-budget oddity from the heyday of producer Charles Band and distributor Empire Pictures.

“Baby! Baby! Baby!”

Try to control your parental instincts, because Z.P.G. (“Zero Population Growth”) is the Greatest Movie EVER? Click on the title or the movie poster above to download our review of the film, featuring “Celebrity Translator” Neil Nadelman.

Review in a Nutshell: An extremely pessimistic, Danish / American eco-disaster science fiction film from 1972, Z.P.G. posits a polluted future where having children is a capital offense. It’s an unusual cultural artifact with a few points that feel strangely relevant to the present.

Bonus Episode: Jaeger Bomb

Fire up your giant robots and get ready to “drift”, because Pacific Rim: Uprising is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Gerald Rathkolb of AnimeWorldOrder.

Review in a Nutshell: A film filled with baffling narrative and editorial decisions, Pacific Rim: Uprising is a prime example of what happens when artistic choices give way to financial and marketing ones.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: Banished to Space Crystal Prison

Hang on to your drill bits, because Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the banner image or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring featuring Franklin Raines of Oddity Game Seekers.

Review in a Nutshell: A film that is at once incredibly simplistic and needlessly convoluted, Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla is less of a movie-going experience and more a springboard for discussion about what happens when giant monster movies go wrong.

A Series of Questionable Hairpieces.

nemesis

Hold on to your humanity, because Nemesis (1992) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest co-host Tom Aznable.

Review in a Nutshell: A straight-to-video cyberpunk science fiction mash-up of Blade Runner, Snatcher, and The Terminator, Nemesis (1992) makes up for its derivative story with incredible stunt-work, excellent practical special effects, and ludicrous gun-play. It’s a tremendously enjoyable little film.

“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.

It’s finally here! After many long months of delays (this was originally recorded on September 23rd, 2017), the Robot Carnival podcast has arrived. CLICK HERE or on the DVD cover above to listen to Dawn, Tom, and myself talk about this eclectic animated anthology from 1987 about sad robots, robot sadness, and the general inability for teenager girls to hold onto their lockets.

“Draw.”

Strap on your six guns, because Westworld (1973) 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: A low-budget, high-concept genre film that predates the popular usage of the phrase “computer virus”, Westworld (1973) is a compelling science fiction thriller with solid performances, strong character writing, and special effects that have stood the test of time.
