Review in a Nutshell: A weirdly existential and somewhat traumatizing West German children’s film, The Neverending Story is a cultural artifact from a very strange and very specific era of the Eighties. They say you can never go home again, and perhaps with this film, that’s true in both the literal and metaphorical senses.
Strap on your fur loincloth, because The Barbarians (1987) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the title or the DVD cover above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: A thoroughly generic Conan the Barbarian rip-off buoyed up by its scattershot production design and the exuberant performances of Peter and David Paul (aka the Barbarian Brothers), The Barbarians (1987) is everything I’ve ever wanted in a Cannon Film Group film directed by Ruggero Deodato.
In the August entry of GME! Anime Fun Time, Tom and I take an impromptu look at Kiki’s Delivery Service, a 1989 theatrical anime film directed by Hayao Miyazaki and animated by Studio Ghibli. CLICK HERE or on the Bluray cover about to download our review of the film. Discussion includes topics such as depression, adolescence, and sentimentality. There’s also some bonus talk about Flying Witch, The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, and why Yamcha is the worst character in Dragon Ball Z.
Hold onto your magical acorns, because Willow is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.
Review in a Nutshell: Although the story-line is pretty generic “high fantasy”, Willow holds up surprisingly well to a modern viewing thanks in no small part to the performances of its many actors (especially Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer, and Jean Marsh) and its high production values.
Break out your battle-axes, because Kull the Conqueror 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: Flaming swords. Rubber demons. Tia Carrere as an evil enchantress. Kull the Conqueror is an unrelentingly goofy but fun little barbarian film.
