GME! Anime Fun Time Episode #31 – Cyber City Oedo 808

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. 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.

“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.

“The more you drive, the less intelligent you are.”

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.

Burn the Mona Lisa, because Equilibrium is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

Review in a Nutshell: Although it fails to strike the proper balance between brainy science fiction and dumb action movie, Equilibrium is a movie that succeeds despite itself, mostly on the strengths of Christian Bale’s performance and the action scenes featuring gun-kata, the improbably entertaining fictional martial art of wielding firearms.

This movie contains:


Sean Bean, Offender of Senses.




“Hey, not my face. I need that.”

A Day in the Life of Tim Maughan (Inside Joke)


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.

“Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground…Democrat?”

Get out the Geiger counter, because C.H.U.D. is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  A cheesy horror film from the early eighties, C.H.U.D. succeeds thanks to solid performances from the cast, strong editing, and a psychologically-oppressive atmosphere.  The rubber monster suits help, too.

This movie contains:

Crazy Homeless People.

Grumpy Frumpy Face.

The mutation makes your eyes all glowy…


Producer Andrew Bonime’s response to the C.H.U.D. DVD commentary can be found here.

Hold onto your smuggled shipment of biochips, because Redline is the Greatest Movie EVER!

The gun from RoboCop.

Come on, we all know what Virtual Reality would really be used for…

Seriously, Mark, you don’t know where that navel has been…


Even more Mark Dacascos goodness in the month of November!

Only the strong could make it this far…

Big Month of Dick – Blade Runner

Banner by LCOM

Describe in single words only the good things that come into your mind about your mother,

because Blade Runner is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nut-shell: Visually visionary but emotionally distant, Blade Runner is a revolutionary piece of  science fiction and its impact on world of film is still felt to this day.

This movie contains:

Harrison Ford, Master of Facial Expressions.



Tears in the Rain.

Accept no Imitations

Aim for the babies and the Boy Scouts, because Death Race 2000 is the Greatest Movie EVER!
