Faster, Robot! Kill, Kill!

Hold onto your ice cream cones, because Chopping Mall is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Max Dunn.

Review in a Nutshell:  A low budget slasher flick produced by Roger Corman and directed by Jim Wynorski, Chopping Mall is better than it has any right to be.  The killer robots steal the show.

This movie contains:

Chewing Gum.

4th Time’s a Charm?

Fire up your Thermos cannons, because Alien: Resurrection is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Strong set design and the presence of Ron Perlman are not enough to save Alien: Resurrection, a film that is saddled with a mediocre Joss Whedon script and the bizarre cinematic affectations of Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

If Loving Robots is Wrong…

Hide the freon, because Crash and Burn is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  A low-budget science fiction slasher film, Crash and Burn cribs more from The Terminator than from earlier Charles Band properties.  Along with Robot Wars, this is one of many films purported to be a sequel to Robot Jox.

This movie contains:

The Future!

Hand Trauma.

Bill Moseley, Paragon of Acting Technology.

Melancholy Robots.

Emergency Podcast System: Prometheus

We interrupt our regularly scheduled podcast to bring you this special announcement:  Prometheus is terrible.

Click on the movie poster or title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest hosts Ian Strope of the Futile Podcast and Rachel Pandich, author of indie comic book Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  Although undeniably beautiful in terms of cinematography and production design, Prometheus suffers from a poor script with writing that disintegrates into a flaming wreck by the movie’s conclusion.  Some people claim the film posses too many unanswered questions.  I claim the opposite: the film answers too many questions, and the answers it gives are dumb.

Occupy Omni Consumer Products?

Fuel up the jet pack and unpack the robot ninjas, because RoboCop 3 is definitely not the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Urban revolutionaries, machine gun arm attachments, and Mohawk-sporting goons…somehow it all goes terribly, terribly wrong in this film directed by Fred Dekker and written by Frank Miller.  Not even Rip Torn can save this movie.

Rock `Em Sock `Em Robots, Redux

Strap on your bicycle helmets, because Robot Wars is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring special guest host Andrew from Collection DX and The Veef Show.

Review in a Nutshell:  A straight-to-video science fiction film with a simple premise and a shoe-string budget, Robot Wars does a lot with very little.  The stop-motion animation and laser effects are especially good.

This movie contains:

A giant robot.

Captain Marion McJerkypants.

Asian Tourists with Laser Cameras.

HOLY CRAP, ANOTHER GIANT ROBOT!  Who could have predicted that?

Bonus Content: Avengers Assemble!

Time for some more kiddy cartoons!

CLICK HERE or on the image above to download a bonus episode in which Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and I gush all over Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Review in a Nutshell:  Avengers is one of only a handful of Marvel animated properties that does justice to the source material.  It’s a great animated series that can be enjoyed by children of all ages, with sharp writing and strong characterization.

FINAL THOUGHT:

The theme song is @#$%ing terrible, though.
