Death Wish 2 (1982)

6/20/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Death Wish 2. After his daughter is murdered, Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) tracks down and kills the thugs responsible. Grittier than the first, Death Wish 2 is the kind of sequel that is nearly a remake of the original. Vincent Gardenia makes a welcome return as Detective Ochoa and Jill Ireland (Bronson's real-life wife) has good chemistry as a romantic lead. The rape scenes in this one are uglier and more exploitative than the...

The Frozen Citadel

6/20/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William T. Thrasher discuss The Frozen Citadel, the 13th episode of the 1980s animated Star Wars: Droids series. This is the final regular length episode of the series. Biological warfare is unleashed on innocents as our heroes and villains continue their quest to actually hang onto some damn Roonstones. Gruesome and dark in a way most of this series hasn't been, The Frozen Citadel is a fine capper to the final cycle of episodes. There are better stakes than...

Batman (1989) (GUEST: Tyler Smith of Battleship Pretension)

6/20/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and special guest Tyler Smith of Battleship Pretension discuss Tim Burton's first Batman film. The Dark Knight squares off against the Clown Prince of Crime! A departure from the Adam West TV show from the 1960s, Batman reimagines the hero as a brooding man haunted by his past. Michael Keaton acquits himself well with Bruce Wayne's pathos, but is blown off the screen by Jack Nicholson's meatier stab at the Joker. Danny Elfman's...

Death Wish (1974)

6/8/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss the original Death Wish from 1974. After his wife is murdered and his daughter is raped, Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) starts killing random hoodlums with his brand of vigilante justice. A disturbing film with a decent script, Death Wish takes its time before Paul Kersey kills his first thug. Even though the dialogue lacks subtlety, there is some attempt made at setting up the moral conflicts between cops, citizens, and crime victims....

The Real Ghostbusters

6/8/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and BJ discuss the animated series The Real Ghostbusters. A spin-off of the live-action movies, it ran for a whopping seven seasons. They also dip into the Ghostbusters toys and video games a little bit. The Real Ghostbusters featured some clever monster designs and storylines that could be quite dark at time. From Season Four onward , it was retitled Slimer! and the Real Ghostbusters. These later episodes had an increased focus on...

Ghostbusters 2 (1989)

6/8/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and BJ discuss Ghostbusters 2. Toxic slime feeds on humanity's negativity. The Ghostbusters must do battle once more! Less scary and adult than the original, Ghostbusters 2 almost feels like a live-action adaptation of the hit cartoon The Real Ghostbusters. Its eclectic soundtrack is loaded with New Jack Swing, Oingo Boingo, and Elton John favorites. There are some good jokes, but the story is more of a slog. Bill Murray's subplot about trying...

Power Rangers (2017)

5/31/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Power Rangers. A 2017 reboot for the big screen, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) renews her betrayal of Zordon (Bryan Cranston) on Earth in present day. It's a movie in which the Power Rangers barely appear. There is some decent social interactions between the teens, but the story slogs to an action-packed ending. It's too little too late. This was meant to be the first of a six-part series, and you can tell. Exposition is the name of...

Across the Roon Sea

5/31/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William T. Thrasher discuss Across The Roon Sea, the 12th episode of the 1980s animated Star Wars: Droids series. Continuing their search for the Roonstones, Mungo Baobab runs into Old Ogger, learns of a surprising familial connection, and gets an annoying comedy droid Lin-D to join them on their quest. A few neat plot twists and some real stakes in the story go a long way. The Roonstones have a meaningful place in the plot. A sequence towards the end is a...

Ghostbusters (1984)

5/31/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss the original Ghostbusters film from 1984. Zuul and Gozer the Gozerian start a phantasmagoric assault on New York City. Only Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) can save fight back with their proton packs! A nigh perfect blend of comedy, action, and horror, Ghostbusters works best when the titular team is trading barbs. Things get a...

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) (GUEST: Linda Kay of Bill and Ted's Excellent Online Adventures)

5/26/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and special guest Linda Kay of Bill & Ted's Excellent Online Adventure discuss Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) and murdered by the robotic Evil Bill and Evil Ted. A darker film than the original, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey has nightmarish imagery and a less compelling plot. It's a good showcase for practical special effects and has a fun hard rock concert at the end. Follow the show on Twitter...

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989) (GUEST: Linda Kay of Bill and Ted's Excellent Online Adventure)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and special guest Linda Kay of Bill & Ted's Excellent Online Adventure discuss the Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) get visited by Rufus (George Carlin). They have to bring back historical dudes and dudettes of great importance to help them pass their history class. An amiable time travel comedy, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure is a goofy adventure film with two likable leads. George...

Planet of the Apes (2001)

5/25/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss the 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes. Captain Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) crash lands on a planet full of gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. Tim Burton directs this pretty but vapid remake. The ape effects are practical, and their faces with modern day prosthetics are a wonder to behold. Too much of the movie is Leo getting chased by apes or escaping from ape prison. There's none of the satirical bite of the...

Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997)

5/18/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie. A silver screen lead-in to the show's fifth season, Turbo weaves a yarn of Lerigot helping Divatox revive Maligore. Feeling more like a direct-to-video knock off of Willow, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie has our heroes trying to rescue creepy wizards from the cunning Divatox. There are some fun fight scenes here on a pirate ship and in a temple, but the meandering plot is too complicated. The long text...

The Roon Games

More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William T. Thrasher discuss The Roon Games, the 11th episode of the 1980s animated Star Wars: Droids series. Admiral Screed gives Governer Koong one last chance to secure the Roonstones. Heroes and villains alike have to compete in the dangerous Roon Games for a chance at the prize. A mostly uninspiring episode save for the Mudmen, this so-so story feels like a worse remake of A Race to the Finish. Admiral Screed looks as cool as ever. Follow the show on...

Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)

5/18/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Battle for the Planet of the Apes. The Law Giver (John Huston) narrates a story about Caesar (Roddy McDowall) staving off waves of humanoid mutants. A low budget affair, Battle for the Planet of the Apes never quite reaches the epic scope it's aiming for. There are ties to Beneath the Planet of the Apes with the whole mutant angle, but there's a real feeling everyone is going through the motions here. Follow the show on...

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)

5/11/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. Caesar (Roddy McDowall), the lone surviving talking ape spawn from the future, leads a revolt of apes against their human masters. A metaphoric rebuke to the prison system and police brutality, this is one of the stronger films in the original quintet. McDowall classes up his performance with several moving speeches, making Caesar into a much more stirring character than his...

Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) (GUEST: Rich Handley Author of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes)

More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, Jersey Jason and special guest Rich Handley (Author of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes and From Aldo to Zira: Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes) discuss Escape from the Planet of the Apes. Talking apes Cornelius (Roddy McDowall) and Zira (Kim Hunter) venture back to a 1973 Earth where they become pop culture darlings and hunted down. A rollicking political satire, Escape from the Planet of the Apes meshes 1970s fashion with bon mots a plenty....

Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)

5/11/2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Brent (James Franciscus) crashes on a planet full of apes, mutants, and an atomic bomb. Initially a retread of the first film, things pick up considerably when the heroes venture underground to the weird mutant society. Containing one of the most audacious endings of all time, this darker sequel works only in fits and starts. Follow the show on Twitter @Sequelcast2 Like our Sequelcast 2...

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie (1995)

5/3/2019
More
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Hitting the silver screen while the TV show was still on the air, this motion picture details the Power Rangers fighting against Ivan Ooze (Paul Freeman). A nigh incomprehensible mess, this movie lumbers along with weak comedy straddling the tepid fight scenes. Some of the character designs are OK. A Godzilla homage near the end suffers from very poor special effects. Paul Freeman seems to be...

Tail of the Roon Comets

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William T. Thrasher discuss Tail of the Roon Comets, the 10th episode of Star Wars: Droids schedule. After a pint in a cantina with their new master Mungo Baobab, R2-D2 and C-3PO head towards Roon to open a semi-legitimate trade route for Roonstones. Imperial Admiral Terrinald Screed and Governer Koong have different ideas. A stellar episode, Tail of the Roon Comets has Stormtroopers, cute aliens, and explosions. In some ways a loose remake of Star Wars...
