Martian Drive In Podcast 52 - The Time Machine/ The Birds






To celebrate the life and career of  Rod Taylor I take a look at his two best genre films: 1960's The Time Machine directed by George Pal and 1963's The Birds, directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

I also talk a bit about why Rod Taylor was such an iconic actor to this particular film buff.

Martian Drive In Podcast 51 - White Worm Death Line



For the fifty first podcast I look at a couple of British horror flicks of yesteryear. First we have the totally crazy Ken Russell joint from 1988 The Lair Of The White Worm starring Hugh Grant and Peter Capaldi then we go back to 1972 for the quirky but effective horror film Death Line a.k.a. Raw Meat starring Donald Pleasance Norman Rossington and Christopher Lee.

Martian Drive In Podcast 50 - These Final Hours - Predestination.







Just before Newtonmas I look at two more Australian genre films from the last couple of years. 2013's apocalyptic drama These Final Hours starring starring Nathan Phillips and Angourie Rice and the 2013 time travel drama Predestination starring Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook. The latter is based on the Heinlein story, ...All You Zombies.

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.
