For this one, two science fiction movies from 2017, from Russia! First we have the first contact/ love story Attraction, then a much anticipated Russian super hero movie, Guardians. Both a lot of fun and highly recommended.
This time around, Sally Frost and I discuss Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2 and a lot of other things including upcoming movies we're looking forward to.
This time, we go from old school Columbia Studios backlot slow shambling zombies with 1957's Zombies of Mora-Tau to fast, twitchy, South Korean commuter zombies with Train to Busan.
We're back in the saddle of Kaneda's motorcycle for another episde. This time continuing on Non-Anglo Science Fiction Movies - we're off to the other Shaky Islands for 1995's The Ghost In The Shell and 1998's Akira. Robocops and dangerous psychokinetic motorcycle gang members.
Hola, muchachos and muchachas, this time I'm looking at Spanish language science fiction movies. First, from Spain there is 2007's Los Cronocrimines (Time Crimes) directed by Nacho Ligalongo and then we go to 2008 for the incredibly timely Sleep Dealer directed by Alex Rivera. Time loops and exploited workers and a non-anglophone view of the genre for February Foreign Language month on Martian Drive-In Podcast.
For the second podcast of Giant Monster January I look at the 1961 Dabnish monster movie Reptilucus and then on to 2002 for the arac attack that is Eight Legged Freaks.
For Big Monster January I take a look at a Japanese kaiju film, the reboot of the Godzilla franchise which is 2016's Shin Godzilla and match it up with one of the best monster flicks of the century so far, the 2006 South Korean movie The Host.
For the first MDIP of 2017 I take a look at Steven Spielberg's long-form directorial debut, Name Of The Game - LA 2017 (1971) starring Gene Barry and Barry Sullivan. I also take a quick look at 2016 in genre media and outline the first seven months of the podcast for 2017.
This time around I'm looking at the 2015 TV series, The Expanse. Why I like it, how it makes good science fiction and why you should watch the first season and the second, which comes out in early 2017.
We go from 1983's horror/politics/Stephen King adaptation The Dead Zone starring Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen to 1932 for the progenitor of Dr Strange, Zatanna, Zatarra, Mandrake The Magician and Doctor Mordrid, Chandu The Magician starring Edmund Lowe and Bela Lugosi.
