Martian Drive-In Podcast 79- Cthulhu-Palooza

This time around it's Lovecraft all the way with the 1963 adaptation of The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward - The Haunted Palace starring Vincent Price and Debra Paget and then to 1970 for the trippy, silly but fun AIP movie The Dunwich Horror with Dean Stockwell and Sandra Dee.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 78 - An American Werewolf From The Black Lagoon.




This time it's fangs, claws, fur, scales and gills with two classic monster movies. Firstly from 1981 we have John Landis' An American Werewolf In London starring David Naughton and Jenny Agutter, then back to 1954 for one of the classic Universal Horror movies, Creature From The Black Lagoon starring Richard Carlson and Julie Adams. Also, lots of feedback.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 68 - Pitch Black Strange Days For the Hugo Awards





In this one, I go from the late-era cyberpunk of Kathryn Bigelow's Strange Days, starring Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett to the gritty working class future of Pitch Black starring Vin Diesel and Radha Mitchell to the current Hugo Award/ Sad/ Rabid Puppies imbroglio which I discuss with Janice Gelb.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 67 - The Mumblecore Special - Safety Not Guaranteed - The One I Love.



This time, we have a couple of low budget but extremely well made mumblecore movies for you. A 2012 movie about a classified ad placed by a time traveller - Safety Not Guaranteed starring Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass, then we go to 2014 for a great little two hander about marital infidelity, counselling and dopplegangers - The One I Love, starring Mark Duplass and Elizabeth Moss.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 66 - Space Truckers Come to Frogtown





This time around, something very much lighter. Two B-Science Fiction movies, one from the 1980s, the 1988 post-apocalyptic fun of Hell Comes To Frogtown starring the late Roddy Piper, Sandahl Bergman and William Smith and then to 1996 for the working-class space opera, Space Truckers starring Dennis Hopper, Stephen Dorff and Debi Mazar. Frogs and square pigs for everyone.

For 65 we go from 1997's story of genetic engineering and human determination GATTACA starring Ethan Hawk and Uma Thurman to the latest movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 64 - Ex Machina Advantageous.



For 64 I look at two smaller, recent (2015) science fiction films that have a lot more to say that any 250 million dollar blockbuster you could name. First Alex Garland's AI film Ex Machina starring Domnhall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander and then Jennifer Phang's tale of the future of work, women and humanity Advantageous starring Jacqueline Kim and James Urbaniak.

Both fine movie, both well worth watching.
