Martian Drive-In Podcast 95 - The First Two Star Trek Movies.

This time around, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, I look at 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture and 1982's Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of Khan. Utopian science fiction, constantly evolving as time and society changes, Star Trek is an example of a durable, adaptable genre franchise.

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.
