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!
Lastly prior to firstly…. Sharknado the Riffing is coming to Evansville! We missed the live riffing of the movie on July 10, and we’re gunning for the rerun on Tuesday July 15! Check your local listings or follow the link to the good folks at Riff Trax!
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!
