Martian Drive In Podcast 21 - Kronos Death Watch

For number 21 I look at the 1957 alien invasion flick Kronos starring Jeff (This Island Earth) Morrow and George (George Jetson) O'Hanlon. From there, it's up to 1980 for Bertrand Tavernier's prophetic look at reality TV, Death Watch starring Romy Schneider, Harvey Keitel and Harry Dean Stanton. This second one is a mindblowingly good film.

Martian Drive In Podcast 20 - Black Lightning Fatherland

This time around we go from Russian superhero action to an alternate universe where Nazis rule Europe. The first film is the 2009 Fantastika flick Black Lighning aka Chernaya Molinya which has the grooviest car since Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and then the 1994 HBO TV movie Fatherland starring Rutger Hauer and Miranda Richardson.

You can watch the whole movie of Fatherland below.

I also go on a rant about the culture wars we're currently experiencing. Sorry about that.
