Blip has decided that I'm not worth the bandwidth, so please check me out on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or heck even Dailymotion. Thank you for watching! Added note: I was going to disable ads for you, but Blip has removed that ability from me first and foremost. How thoughtful.
Alien Cubed, where we glimpse into the square root of all evil! Or not, as I'm just making things up. The point is, a lot of decisions were done on the fly in this movie, which was put together in such a haphazard self-destructive way, it's actually very impressive that it turned out as well as it did. That's not to say it turned out great, though...
Back in 1992, when robotic police were the "thing," 8 Man sought to ride the coattails of Robocop, despite the truth being that the original 8 Man manga and anime series came out much, MUCH earlier. Still, as this was the only live action film adaptation to take place, it ended up being compared to Robocop more often than not. Especially in America, where most of the people weren't familiar with the original series. Nevertheless, it's 8 Man! And.. um.. wait, what is this movie even about?
I may be over a day late, and quite a bit more than a dollar short.. but I finally saw the brand-spankin' new Godzilla! What are my thoughts? Well.. that's what I want you to click the video for, isn't it?
Released in 1982, The Beastmaster came out in the wake of Conan the Barbarian. Despite this, it didn't get much praise during it's theatrical run. However, subsequent airings on cable TV granted the film a cult following that has grown over the years. So in this tale of swords, sorcery, barbarism and boobs - there yet remains one question that must be answered... is it really worth watching?
This week, we look at the unoriginal original Godzilla film! As the 1954 production had to be "Americanized" before it was released in the majority of theaters on this side. So while this takes the original movie and tells the original story, it is anything but the original version. Nevertheless, how does Hollywood fare inserting Raymond Burr into the first major Kaiju film? ...how do you think?
How do you make a sequel that's so good, people argue over if it or the original were better for years to come? One idea is to try doing something very different than the first. At least this way, the film is not simply "The Movie: Again" and you have a chance to expand the universe in smart ways. Such is the case with Aliens, directed by James Cameron. While not straight horror like it's predecessor, it helped flesh out the setting a lot more and gave us a bunch of depth for the creatures in ...
The 1988 anime film that helped create the demand for the genre in America, Akira was based on the long running Manga series of the same name. Famously shunned by big names like George Lucas as being unmarketable, it's still remembered for being remarkable - and very strange. Some love it, some hate it - but what do I think of it? Oh you know you're supposed to click on the video to learn that part.
In the tradition of a 4:20 special for my show, how about a review of Sex Pot, the Asylum's sex themed rip off of Half Baked? ...well horror and sci-fi films with heavy marijuana themes are kind of rare, you know. Anyway! Sex Pot is the tale of two idiots who desperately want to lose their virginity, but are really picky about what does or does not count. They also have some weed that makes women go crazy - so they set up another arbitrary achievement as that's just too easy. Oy...
Based on the graphic novel based on the killings of Jack the Ripper, From Hell stars Johnny Depp as the investigator leading the case in the Whitechapel murders. How closely does it match the actual history of the case though? Well.. let's put it this way.. if it took place on Mars, it would be just about as true to history.
