On this week’s Let’s Get Dangerous podcast, I’m joined by Bill from Outside the Cinema to talk about 60s pop producer Joe Meek via the conduit of his 2008 biopic, Telstar. Available for streaming on US Netflix and Amazon Prime. You can watch OTC live every Monday at tv.outsidethecinema.com or find the show in iTunes.
While in Bottom 100 territory, we talk Soultaker. It’s a rip-roaring train ride through mediocrity that stops off to take in the sights of Robert Z’Dar and Joe Estevez in heavy eye make-up.
Don’t forget to head over to Facebook group, and if you get the chance then give us a review at the iTunes store.
Doug, Andi and I watched Pinata: Survival Island for To The Top of the Bottom 100, and let me tell you this – It was no fun. In a review ruled by bodily functions and boredom, who comes out looking good? Not this fuckin’ movie, that’s for damn sure!
The LGDP now has a Facebook group, so get yourself over there and get in on the ground floor of what will surely be a conversational hop spot.
And give us a review in the iTunes store too, if you feel so inclined. I’d sure like it if you did.
It’s time for LGDP2 to wash all over them ears of yours. In the words of Dr. Dre, it’s the next episode, and on this week’s show we welcome Kelley Kombrinck. You might know Kelley from his work over at the Night of The Living Podcast or his first collection of short stories, These Lonely Places. He joined me in the Stream of Consciousness studio to talk about classic 80s teen flick, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which is currently streaming on US Netflix. In To The Top Of The Bottom 100, we celebrate inviting Doug into the fold by watching Baby Geniuses, a film so wantonly stupid that it may broken all of our brains.
Just over three years ago, I was blown away by John Hyams’ re-invigoration of the Universal Soldier franchise. It was one that had languished in bargain buckets across the world, despite how great an action movie that first entry was. Universal Soldier: Regeneration managed to tow the line of action and interesting ideas better than any other straight-to-DVD action film of that year. Some people think it showed the multiplex boys who was boss too.
In this inaugural episode of the Let’s Get Dangerous podcast, Jamie talks Beyond The Black Rainbow with OTC and Are You Serious podcast veteran, Chris Bricklemyer, in Stream of Consciousness. In To The Top Of The Bottom 100, Jamie and Andi look at the IMDb bottom 100′s number 51: The Beast of Yucca Flats. While in movie news, Liam talks Stoker, Gallowwalkers, Marvel and more.

I’m not a big Family Guy fan, its sense of humour rarely amuses me. On the flipside, I do like Massachusetts accents and comedy songs about weather. Both of which were present in the trailer, so I decided to give Ted a shot. The premise is pretty genius, I can’t believe no one thought to make a movie based around it now. What happens after that magical Christmas wish movie? Apparently, what comes after is a load of mediocre jokes and swearing. Because that’s funny, right?
I have mixed opinions about Deadpool as an entity. In theory, he is probably the bad-assest comic character since The Flaming Carrot, but the rabid fanpeoples and casual comic fans on a certain microblogging platform really grind my nuggets. But whatever, Deadpool has been growing in popularity over the last few years. Probably based on Hollywood’s favourite apathy factory, Ryan Reynolds, playing him in that Wolverine flick or something. Based on his own merits, Deadpool is a don.
I’ve always said; if you want to make a low budget horror flick, you either have to do something very different or something really special. While this giant bug flick isn’t too different to, say, Eight Legged Freaks, it is certainly well put together.
