Fire up your flame-throwers, because The Hidden (1987) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest hosts Tony (@CaptainJandor) and Kristina (@ChibiUFO).

Review in a Nutshell: Although the film’s low budget pokes through in a couple of places, The Hidden (1987) is a well-composed, well-edited film filled with strong character actors, humanist themes, dark humor, and a surprisingly effective blend of genre elements including action, science fiction, and “buddy cop” police procedural.

Lace up your sneakers, because Space Jam is the Greatest Movie EVER.

Review in a Nutshell: In our continuing efforts to ruin Katherin’s childhood, we take a look at Space Jam. It’s definitely a movie designed to appeal to children, and the Looney Tunes’ wacky antics strike the adult me as just obnoxious and gross, but the movie still has its moments.

Review in a Nutshell: One part crass product placement, one part shameless E.T. rip-off, one part existential horror movie, Mac and Me is an unlikely children’s film that needs to be seen to be believed. While indubitably a bad film, both Sean and I agree the film gets a disproportionate amount of hate.

Hold onto your gray matter, because The Brain from Planet Arous is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: A body-snatching science fiction film made on a shoestring budget, The Brain from Planet Arous nevertheless conveys a wonderful sense of tension thanks to the performances of John Agar and Joyce Meadows. There are also some surprisingly creepy special effects, not counting the giant papier-mâché brain.

Always wear your seatbelt, because Repo Man is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: A confluence of punk rock anarchy and self-deprecating suburban cynicism, Repo Man is also a high concept, low budget science fiction film with a bizarre sense of humor and an avante-garde edge. It’s the kind of film that could only have come from the early Eighties.

Bone up on your ancient Egyptian heiroglyphics, because Stargate is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring guest host Ro from Atomic Trivia War 9000.

Review in a Nutshell: Like many of Emmerich’s other films, Stargate is long on production value and short on plot. Spader and Russell are able to bring life and personality to their characters, though, and the costumes and sets still look great nearly two decades after the film’s debut.
