Nothing celebrates Independence Day like a bloodthirsty bear. Join us for a look at the 1976 independent film, Grizzly, which
desperately wanted to cash in on the success of Jaws a year earlier. This episode is brought to you by Wheezy Bear.
Nothing says summer more than shiny Egyptian gods of questionable origin. Join us for a look at Gods of Egypt, the box office bomb directed by Alex Proyas. Also included is a new Cavebabble Eats Odds Things, and the triumphant return of email. This episode is brought to you by So Much Gold.
Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark must fight to survive The Hunger Games, but they aren’t the first to step onto the dystopian battlefield. The forty-two ninth grade students of Battle Royale spilled the blood of their classmates back in 2000. Join us for a look at both films. This episode is brought to you by Run!
The Twilight Zone meets The Tramp on the way to Sunnyvale Rest Home! Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the classic Twilight Zone episode, Kick the Can, we travel through a dimension of sight and (sometimes) sound, ultimately ending up in 1914, enjoying the silent comic antics of Charlie Chaplin. Join us! This episode is brought to you by Black and White Talkie Talkie.
Tonight, we cover a sampling of fantasy action films, including The Beastmaster, both versions of Clash of the Titans, a salute to 300, and a spoiler-free review of Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. Shake the sand from your sandals, and join us! This episode is brought to you by Baby Oil.
The speed and agility of a motorcycle, combined with the firepower of plasma emitters. Launched from the legs of a hulking Harvester unit, moto-terminators are Skynet’s way of letting humanity know that it’s far cooler and deadlier than we are.
If you need to invade Hoth, you may want to bring an AT-AT walker. Built rather like a trunk-less elephant, this massive attack vehicle just may intimidate enemies into submission without firing a shot. Warning: Your walker may be susceptible to tripping.
A natural advancement of 1960’s jet design, this Pan Am spacecraft is both beautiful and familiar… and still offers in-flight meals! Forget that Pan American World Airways went belly-up in 1991. In 2001, they’re back with a vengeance. Darn, why aren’t we riding around in these?
If forced to take on the Ko-Dan Armada, it’s nice to have a Gunstar available. And thanks to The Last Starfighter video game, training pilots for it is simple and fun. At least that’s what Alex thought before Centauri whisked him away, and plopped him into the real thing. Gunstars are beautiful, but also agile and powerful. Even so, it’s nice to have a Death Blossom attack when things get desperate.
I don’t know the official name of these hulking saucers, but they certainly make an entrance. The invading aliens in Independence Day arrive in style, aboard thirty-six identical, fifteen-mile-wide craft, which are deployed from their mother ship. Despite being vulnerable to a jet up the pie hole (and what isn’t, really?), these destroyers are incredibly intimidating. Especially when arriving in a roiling, atmospheric cloud of flame and death. One of the better arrivals in sci-fi history. White House shield recommended.
