For the first podcast of 2018 I look at one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time, Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker from 1979 and then from 2016- a movie I underestimated, and that is Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall starring Matt Damon and Andy Lau.
Chinese monsters and a patch of land that will kill you. What more can you want?

For the last MDIP of 2017 - it's dead kiddies and dark avengers. First the 1989 Stephen King adaptation Pet Sematary starring Dale Midkiff and Denise Crosby, then we have the Liam Neesons happening with Sam Raimi's 1990 superhero movie Darkman, also starring Frances McDormand.
Have a great 2018.

Here it is. As agreed with the Patreon subscribers I watched and reviewed Star Wars - The Last Jedi as fairly as I possibly could. There's really nothing else to say except enjoy the holidays.

This time we go from 60s childhood nostalgia to 21st Century dystopian horror. First the childhood favourite Santa Claus Conquers The Martians from 1964, then as a palate cleanser, the 2013 dystopian horror science fiction movie The Purge starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headley. Toys and knives for everyone!

This time around we have a brief waffle about DC and Marvel cinematic universes, without dissing either. Then I move on to Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets plus we have feedback from the Cayman Islands. All this for free unless you want to become a wonderful, kind, lovely Patreon supporter at patreon,com/paleocinema.
For this one we're in sequel city with Blade Runner 2049 starring Baby Goose and Fifty Shade Of Grumpy then we go to Thor: Ragnarok, the best Australasian comedy of the past few years.

For this episode we go from an unusual battle for a man's life in Powell and Pressburger's A Matter Of Life and Death (1946) starring David Niven and Kim Hunter to a gentle, humanistic comedy about a man with an extraordinary friend, in Harvey (1950) with James Stewart and Josephine Hull. Yes, I also talk about the other Harvey and have a bit of a rant there.

This time around, it's American horror versus Japanese horror. We start with 2012's The Cabin In The Woods starring Bradley Whitford, Richard Jenkins and Chris Hemsworth, then we move on to 2006's Death Note, and Death Note: The Last Word. One has more monsters in it than the other.

This time I look at The Mummy and it's reboot. Not the Brendan Fraser- Tom Cruise ones but the 1932 The Mummy with Boris Karloff and the 1940 reboot The Mummy's Hand with Tom Tyler as the monster.
