Martian Drive In Podcast 39 - Everything That's Wrong With Star Wars

This time around, as a result of a generous donation to the podcast's Patreon Campaign, I am looking at everything that's wrong with the first three Star Wars movies. I'm also announcing my chosen alternative casting for the films and explaining why the planets in these films are boring.

Martian Drive In Podcast #38 - Some Australian SF Movies

This time I go into history and look at a bunch of vintage Australian SF films. None of them are world-shattering but they do illustrate the history of Australian film in general and are very interesting in a lot of ways. I also put up the proposition that if I get two donors to the Patreon campaign who specifically ask for it, I will fully review Brian Trenchard-Smith's Turkey Shoot and Dead-End Drive-In on a future podcast.

This time around Iain Triffitt and I talk about the 2011 time travel/horror / high school satire movie Detention. But mostly we shoot the shit and have a great time with it. Iain's project Tweatre is here but Iain informed me that it is currently on hiatus, darlings.
