Reviews of movies from my giant DVD tower, and more.

Fun with Buckaroo Banzai

Jump in your Ford jet car and travel back with me to 1984, and have some fun with one of the screwiest sci-fi comedies you’ll ever see.

They Came from Beyond Space (1967)

Worst. Sunglasses. EVER. Lindsey and I return for another round of reviewing cheesy movies, this time for a sci-fi alien thriller courtesy of our friends in England.

Rocketship X-M (1950)

In this early space-travel drama, Lloyd Bridges, Osa Massen, and three others are rocketed to the moon, but make an unexpected detour…with more than unexpected results.

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983)

The Video Store Action Heroes are back, reviewing sci-fi actioners from the non-blockbuster side of the ledger. For me, it’s a Molly Ringwald space adventure from ’83.

Krull (1983)

Space castles, laser guns, horses, swords, a giant flying tree stump, and of course, Krull. But now the big question: who, what, or where IS this so-called Krull?

7/1/18

Robot Monster (1953)

The movie that rivals Plan 9 from Outer Space as the worst of all time…or is it? An alien in a gorilla costume may have the answer.
