Monkey See, Monkey Do.

Hold on to your helicopters, because Kong: Skull Island is most definitely 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 gleefully violent creature-feature, Kong: Skull Island manages to leave much of the character’s colonial baggage behind. It’s a great little genre fiction romp with some surprising artistic flourishes and a wicked sense of humor.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: Heisei Lepidopteran Shenanigans

It’s Christmas, and this year we bring the gift that keeps on giving when Tom and I talk about the 1992 Godzilla vs. Mothra: The Battle for Earth, not to be confused with the 1964 Mothra vs. Godzilla. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to here us muse about giant moths, overly invasive archaeology, and what dating prospects should await anyone who dares to kidnap the Cosmos.

 

“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.

Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: The Merry Adventures of Muddy Mudskipper

The years-spanning (annual?) tradition continues with the next entry of Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla as Mom and I take breathless look at the 2016 Hideaki Anno / Shinji Higuchi joint, Shin Godzilla. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to download our review of the film, which features much discussion on Japanese politics, “scrap and rebuild”, and the imagery of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.

GME! Anime Fun Time Episode #29 – Robot Carnival

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.

Oh, Hey! Cool Robot!

Strap on your helmet (and leave it on) because Judge Dredd is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the (helmet-less) DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell: Despite its high production values, Judge Dredd stumbles because it tries to turn a dark and satirical British comic book into a big, dumb, American action movie. The casting is questionable, the dialog is hammy, and the performances are mixed, but man does that ABC Warrior robot look cool.

“I’m a Scientist, You’re an @$$hole.”

Put on your professorial hiking gear, because The War of the Gargantuas is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Japanese Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell: A somewhat strange sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World that stars Russ Tamblyn of all people, The War of the Gargantuas is a throwback to the golden era of Toho’s giant monster films.
