The Martian Drive In Podcast 48 - The Golden Compass and The Devil Rides Out




This time I go from a missed opportunity, the 2007 fantasy adventure film The Golden Compass starring Dakota Blue Richard and Nicole Kidman to one of Hammer's most interesting flicks the 1968 Dennis Wheatley adaptation The Devil Rides Out starring Christopher Lee and Charles Gray.

Martian Drive In Podcast 46 - Lucy Things To Come.






This time, I look at one of the best science fiction movies from 1936 - the H.G. Wells adaptation Things To Come starring Raymond Massey and then jump forward 78 years to Luc Besson's 2014 science fiction action flick Lucy starring Scarlett Johanssen. There's also music and a little controversy. Enjoy!

Martian Drive In Podcast 45 - The Outer Limits Of Harlan Ellison





Just for a change this time around, I take a look at the two episodes of The Outer Limits written by Harlan Ellison. Both from 1964, they are Soldier starring Michael Ansara and Lloyd Nolan and the classic Demon With A Glass Hand starring Robert Culp and Arlene Martel. Plus there's feedback disagreeing with me on Dark City.

Martian Drive In Podcast 44 - My Science Project Dark City




This time around, at the request of Elaine, a Patreon supporter of the podcast, I look at Dark City (1998) Alex Proyas' stylish science fiction mystery film and then for some fun we go back to 1985 for My Science Project. It's a funky Bali-Ha'i! Also, there's news from the planet Mars.

Martian Drive In Podcast 43 - The Brother From The Quatermass Xperiment



For forty three I look at one of Hammer's earliest SF movies, the 1955 remake of BBC's television serial The Quatermass Xperiment starring Brian Donlevy and Richard Wordsworth and then we fly to 1984 for John Sayles' refugee SF tale, The Brother From Another Planet, starring Joe Morton.
