Review in a Nutshell: A competently made film that can’t seem to pick a tone and stick with it, Man’s Best Friend (1993) is hampered as a horror film by some questionable characterization, tonal inconsistencies, and a canine antagonist that is entirely too adorable for his murderous role.

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.

Not to be Confused with ‘Hard Rain’.

Strap on your scuba gear, because Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds 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 groovy, boozy Seventies movie with a fashionably hard-boiled geologist protagonist and a pair of completely inert giant “dinosaurs”, Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds was allegedly the most expensive science fiction film yet produced by Toei Studios when it premiered in 1977. It’s a baffling little creature feature with lots of symbolic camera-work and questionable wardrobe choices.

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.
