Alien Cops Are Blastin’

Hold on to your alien weapons and your teenage dreams, because Laserblast is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Phillip (formerly known as Eeeper of Eeeper’s Choice).

Review in a Nutshell: A no-budget science fiction flick from the Seventies, Laserblast nonetheless has some outstanding pyrotechnics and a surprisingly meaty portrayal of alienation and suburban ennui.

“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.

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.

Make Mine MANT!

Hold on to your popcorn, because Matinee (1993) is the Greatest Movie EVER?

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring “Celebrity Translator” Neil Nadelman.

Review in a Nutshell: Awash in nostalgia and soaked in the anxiety of the threat of Cold War era nuclear annihilation, Matinee (1993) is a film oddity and a loving tribute to the oeuvre of master movie marketer William Castle.

“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.

Make Mine Murder-Chimp

Rev up the geospheres, because The Lawnmower Man is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring “Celebrity Translator” Neil Nadelman.

Review in a Nutshell: A low-budget science fiction film with pioneering computer graphics and a burbling anxiety about the future abuses of virtual reality technologies that have as-yet failed to materialize, The Lawnmower Man bears no real resemblance to its source material, but the production design and performances are good despite a muddled narrative and inconsistent tone and pacing.

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.

Finally, It’s Kamiya’s Time to Shine!

Hold on to you Metis Cannon, because Zeiram is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Mike Dent of Vintage Henshin.

Review in a Nutshell: Despite it’s occasional pacing issues, Zeiram is a low-budget, high concept tokusatsu science fiction film that serves as a great introduction to the medium. The prop and monster designs are especially noteworthy.
