Shark Week and GenCON 2014 all in one sitting. We’ve got some things to say about the fakeumentories on the Discovery Channel. Last year it was Megalodon, and this year it’s Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine! We share our excitement over GenCON, dish out a new life lesson from the Disney-Pixar film Finding Nemo, and serve up a B-Movie Double Feature review. This time around: Sharktopus and Tw0-Headed Shark Attack. Both films get positive “Buy It” reviews. Finally, Isaiah talks about the book he read, “Armor of God” by Phil Elmore. It’s a great story about a real-life superhero. See you in the reaction chamber!
The Sharknado Rifftrax event recorded live come to local theatres. Well, one theatre. Curtis and I threw a black bag over Drew’s head and went to see it! A new segment premieres, a look at the moral life lessons behind beloved Disney films. This time around we look at the Disney take on Tarzan.
Well, not quite. But we do have a B-movie double feature for you. One of them is Hercules, and the other is in space! Curt and I fire up the reaction chamber for two new released from the Asylum. Age of Tomorrow blends elements of Armageddon, Ender’s Game, and Independence Day. Hercules Reborn seeks to merge Conan, Gladiator, and Robin Hood. Both of them are solid movies that we enjoyed well enough. The final rating for both of them is “Borrow.” We close up with a quick review of a trip to the comic book store where we stumbled upon hidden treasures in the form of Ogre Pocket Edition and Atomic Robo the RPG! Woot! Both of them deserve an episode of their own, and we’ll get to that!
That sweet, sweet cover art for AE Apocalypse Earth by the Asylum is a total lie. Don’t get me wrong, we really liked the film. But the movie poster totally sold us a bill of goods. This episode is a B-movie double feature review: Ghost Shark – exactly what it sounds like – and AE Apocalypse Earth, a movie which was both disappointing and satisfying. I think it’s just that we were so let down by not getting any of the scenes promised on the poster. Still, great movie!
On this episode we dive into a variety of topics, including the new shiny books that Curt and I picked up. I start the Dragonball Z series with the kids, and follow it with a double creature feature of B-movie reviews. Topics this time include Stony Man: Precipice, the Tome of Horrors 4, Invasion: Roswell, and the critically acclaimed Sharknado!
