Review in a Nutshell: A low-budget, high-concept genre film that predates the popular usage of the phrase “computer virus”, Westworld (1973) is a compelling science fiction thriller with solid performances, strong character writing, and special effects that have stood the test of time.

GME! Anime Fun Time Episode #17 – Memories (1995)

memories

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s the latest episode of GME! Anime Fun Time, in which Tom, Evan Minto of Crunchycast, and I tackle the 1995 animated anthology film Memories, which is based on a series of short. science fiction manga penned by Katsuhiro Otomo, the creator of Akira. Evan and I gush about the amount of technical skill and talent assembled for the film, while Tom is less enthusiastic, since two of the three segments left him cold.

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.

Review in a Nutshell: An inspired rip-off of both The Terminator and RoboCop, R.O.T.O.R. is the sort of film that is breath-taking in its complete and total cinematic incompetence. It must be seen to be believed.

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: Star Crash is an Italian Star Wars knock-off that is amazingly bad on every technical level. Ridiculous, absurd, and illogical, it manages to turn a 92 minute run time into a torturous cinematic experience that lasts an eternity. I love it. I haven’t laughed so hard in years.

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.
