Martian Drive-In Podcast 94 - Midnight Special- Looper

This time the theme is weird kids with extraordinary powers. To start, I look at the 2016 film Midnight Special starring Michael Shannon and Joel Edgerton and then we head back in time to 2012 for Rian Johnson's Looper starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis. Two films that take different viewpoints on science fiction. Plus, there's feedback.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 92 - Star Trek Beyond Ghostbusters




Who would have thought that genre films could be controversial and generate vicious personal attacks on the people acting in them? This time I look at two of them from 2016 that got knifed by MRAs and sundry other internet trolls: Star Trek Beyond, starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, and Ghostbusters starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Lesley Jones. 

Fanboys really need to get their shit together.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 89 - Live At Continuum 12

Yep, recorded this one live at Continuum 12 the annual Melbourne Science Fiction convention. Grant Watson and Narrelle M. Harris help me talk about The Return of Captain Invincible, what do you do when someone whose work you love turns out to be a repugnant arsehole and other issues of the day. Audience giveaways happened, silliness ensued and the podcast, for those reasons, runs almost two hours.
