Nostalgia, shadow narratives, cold war politics and an iron super hero from outer space.
Ginormous robots, cityscapes, nowhere space and more to fear from the bottom of the sea. We watched Pacific Rim.
Suds, duds, microbes and rectal probes. Have you ever wondered how much Head and Shoulders it would take to fill a fire truck? We watched Evolution and did the math… sorta.
Goggles, menthol cools, necromongers and why hard body masculinity means never having to say you care/are sorry/have emotions/really meant to rescue that damsel…
Tip, tip, tip, tip, tip! Confounded by stairs, stymied by doors, aliens from outer space with a pet mutant on the loose. If only he had hands. Moon spoons, teaspoons, tablespoons of science and the best parody of 50’s B movies we’ve ever watched for the Alien Movie Project. Joined by special guest Charles Horgan, we watched The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.
Aliens that can’t manage voicemail technology a.k.a. Hey Cows the extra-terrestrial version, Mrs. Scientist and more flying saucers than you can point an ultrasonic gun at… perhaps the saucer-iest movie of all time? We watched Earth vs. The Flying Saucers. +++ The incomparable Robbie Graham joins us for another interview!
The emotional economy of plants… er, men, the Victorian sensibilities of extraterrestrials, still more monstrous femininity and whether “get em!” constitutes cool rational logic. We watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Intellectual carrots, coffee and Arctic board meetings. We watched The Thing from Another World.
We are all interested in the future for that is where you and I will spend the rest of our lives… Misogyny, misguided “that’ll learn ems” and general shenanigans. We watched Plan 9 from Outer Space. And as always, special thanks goes to our incredible producer, the Don of the Not Safe for Network Alex “Biggs” Small!
The upside: we found Kevin Middleton’s Halloween costume. The downside: we watched Spaced Invaders. Idiot militia, idiot aliens and the proliferation of Disney… there goes the neighborhood. Again.
A pinch of magic, a minor fear of mortality… and the power of children’s tears. We watched Super 8.
It’s kind of about football… and it will leave you feeling concussed. We watched Flash Gordon. Recorded on the road in Montana, Alex “Biggs” Small joins us for the carnage.
You guys, they’ve figured out intergalactic travel… do they reallllly need batteries? We watched Batteries Not Included.
Hooligans, shenanigans and goings on. Monstrous femininity, feral children, racism, sexism and city scapes. We watched Attack the Block.
Crop dusters, the return of the quack and the female space invader. We watched 10 Cloverfield Lane.
