Hold on to your robot juice, because Alita: Battle Angel is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Blu-ray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Rob Lantz.
Review in a Nutshell: A true rarity, Alita: Battle Angel is an anime-to-live-action adaptation that managed to navigate a decades-long “development hell” while still remaining faithful to the spirit of the source material. It’s a great little science fiction / action film for a multitude of reasons.
We’re back from beyond the grave like a vengeful cyber-ghost (or a vengeful cyber-cyborg, or a vengeful cyber-vampire) with a review of the classic early Nineties cyberpunk anime OAV series, Cyber City Oedo 808.

Hold on to your humanity, because Nemesis (1992) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest co-host Tom Aznable.
Review in a Nutshell: A straight-to-video cyberpunk science fiction mash-up of Blade Runner, Snatcher, and The Terminator, Nemesis (1992) makes up for its derivative story with incredible stunt-work, excellent practical special effects, and ludicrous gun-play. It’s a tremendously enjoyable little film.
Boot up your computer-generated parrots, because Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Japanese DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Andrew from The Veef Show and Collection-DX.
Review in a Nutshell: Low budget but groundbreaking, 20 Minutes into the Future is one of the few films that really deserves the term ‘cyberpunk’. It has a droll, British sense of humor and great production design, and I highly recommend it to anyone that can manage to track it down.
Boot up your Cybercycle Discs, because Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Andrew from The Veef Show.
Review in a Nutshell: Lawnmower Man 2, aside from being a cultural artifact of early `90s science fiction film, is a hilariously inept chunk of pseudo-cyberpunk cinema that makes for a rollicking fun watch.
Put down that electric drill, because Pi is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: A harrowing tale of mathematics and madness, Pi juggles such diverse elements as cyberpunk and Jewish mysticism to make a taut psychological thriller.
Jack into your virtual reality headset, because Johnny Mnemonic is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Dave and Joel from Fast Karate for the Gentleman.
Review in a Nutshell: Johnny Mnemonic is a poor adaptation with a surprisingly high number of hilarious things going on it. It’s proof positive that some authors should not be allowed to adapt their own work.
This movie contains:
Udo Kier, being Udo Kier.
“Send you down to Rikerth, wear an orange jumpthuit!”
Dr. Henry Rollins, Cybersurgeon Extraordinaire.
Johnny Mnemonic, the Highlight Reel.
