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 it's slimy radioactive ooze versus the devil in disguise. First Ishiro Honda's 1958 crime drama cum radioactive monster flick The H-Man then it's the 1965 movie that started Amicus Productions many portmanteau horror films, Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Donald Sutherland.
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.
From an amoebic monster made of tripe in the Mexican jungle to four fucked up superheroes protecting New York from Sigourney Weaver, I have something for everyone this episode. First it's Mario Bava's first film, Caltiki, The Immortal Monster then a look at the eight episode season of the fifth Marvel Netflix series, The Defenders.
This time I go from a movie that cost $6500 to one that cost $50 million. From Dennis Muren's 1970 film of demons and teenagers Equinox to Alex Proyas' 2009 end of the World Nicholas Cage vehicle Knowing.
So I went to the friendly neighbourhood cinema complex to see the latest tile in the mosaic that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe... and I talk about it.

From Mandroids to cockroaches, ninjas and time travel to insect-mutant superheroes on Mars, we have everything this time. I start with the 1986 Charles Band movie Eliminators starring Denise Crosby and Andrew Prine then move on to Takaski Miike's 2016 manga adaptation about superheroes fighting mutated cockroaches on Mars: Terra Formars.
