Mad scientists have kidnapped Elwood, Lackey, and special guest Brian “The Last Angry Geek” Heinz, shot them into space, marooned them on an orbital satellite, and forced them to watch cheesy cult science-fiction television shows. (They needn’t have bothered; we watch this kind of thing by choice.)
In this episode, we discuss:
Mystery Science Theater 3000 4.04, “Teenagers from Outer Space” (1992): This week’s experiment: a 1959 Warner Bros. cheapie about aliens who plot to turn Earth into a breeding ground for giant lobsters.
Ultraman 1.10, “The Mysterious Dinosaur Base” (1966): Ultraman takes on a mad scientist who has been breeding a massive dinosaur beneath the waves of Lake Kitayama.
On this episode, The Vern is joined by Chris Revill of Let's Chat with Revill & Friends to discuss our favorite movies when we were younger. It's a fun free form style episodes where they each discuss fun stories of watching movies when they were younger that you will enjoy.
Elwood and Lackey are back to take on two slices of late-night television goodness, in the form of Tom Baker-era Doctor Who and Japan’s tokusatsu take on Spider-Man. Yowza!
In this episode, we discuss:
Doctor Who 17.05-17.08, “City of Death” (1979): The Doctor and Romana arrive in contemporary Paris and stumble across a tentacle-faced alien, dangerous time-travel experiments, and a plot to steal the Mona Lisa.
Supaidāman, episode zero (1978?): Takuya Yamashiro, a motocross racer with superpowers granted by alien technology, joins forced with Interpol’s Secret Intelligence Division to take on Professor Monster and his evil Iron Cross Army.
Next month: Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Ultraman.
Celebrating year one of the podcast, Elwood and Stephen check out the Sammo Hung classic Pedicab Driver, which despite starting out as a light hearted kung-fu comedy, hides a darker second half while also showcasing some truly memorable martial artistry from the legendary Hung. All this plus Godzilla (Anime) and Devilman Crybaby landing on Netflix, and Stephen delves into the much overlooked subgenre of romantic Asian cinema and Elwood names his alternative top couples in Asian cinema plus much more.
It's a double dose of randomness this on this episode as we pay a visit to Darkside hospital in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace before heading the centre of the earth to battle Hitler and Nazi Dino soldiers in Danger 5. All this plus Mumblecore and the rise and fall of Lena Dunham, we ask who the Xenial directors are, question if it's possible to be bored of nudity and Lackey gives his thoughts on the return of The X-Files plus much more.
Hello Everybody. On this episode of Cinema Recall, it's reviews of two horrific and terrifying features (but not for the reasons you think), Bad Apples, and Butcher The Bakers.
On this episode of Cinema Recall, the Vern and guest Sean Homrig of 1001 Movies Podcast play detectives as they each discuss their favorite moments from the mystery comedy Clue (1985). They also discuss a fourth alternate ending that was never shown and discuss the potential remake as well. It's a great episode and we thank you for listening. Shout out to Jairo from True Bromance Podcast and our apologies for messing up the audio when we tried to record with him for this episode last month.
*Note* The Vern's Mic was having some issues and may sound a bit softer in volume at times. It's still a good episode, but just wanted to warn you.
On this Episode, The Vern is joined by Tony Coogan of Coogs Movie Reviews to discuss filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro's epic fantasy Pan's Labyrinth. They each pick a favorite scene to discuss and explain why many Studio Ghibli films would be great companion pieces for it.
