Lost but not forgotten: White Dwarf (1995)

White Dwarf (1995)

Howdy folks,

Since podcast hosting is down again this week, I thought we'd take a look at another lost movie. I've been pining for some good new sci-fi, but since it's been failing so hard until the hopeful phoenix that Avatar is supposed to be arrives, I've been looking to the past. Cue Francis Ford Coppola to produce this little lost sci-fi gem. Coppola is no stranger to schlock, be it in his movies or his kinfolk ::cough:: Nicolas Cage ::cough:: However, in this old forgotten TV movie, he takes what should be schlock and guides the creative team to create something that's actually pretty cool and addresses more interesting sci-fi concepts than any big budget blockbuster has even gotten close to in years. Of course that means it's still totally out of print and may never see the light of redistribution. That's where my pal the Negative Cutter comes in. He's got copies of this joint over at his website for 7 bucks as opposed to the Thai PAL dvd that sells for some stupid hundred and twenty bucks on

So do yourself a favor and check out Neal McDonough and Paul Winfield in a crazy world that's off it's axis, chock full of aliens (made of LATEX not CGI!) and interesting concepts and wait for Hollywood to figure out that the state of sci-fi is in shambles.

Horror DVDs

Howdy folks,

I normally don't post too many things about deals on movies, but for those of you who love your horror movies, has a great deal going on right now on horror DVDs. There's a pretty sizable list of movies to choose from and it's Buy One Get One Free. Pretty good deal, especially considering you could buy the Hellraiser boxed set and get the Dario Argento Box Set for free. A good time to stock up or spend that stimulus check if you haven't already wasted it on blow and cheap tricks that new KIA soul with the hamsters in the commercial.

Star Wars VS Star Trek Podcast May 4th, 2009

Howdy folks,

A long time ago (monday) in a studio far far away an epic battle raged. The timeless struggle between phasers and blasters, Klingons and Wookies, Ewoks and Tribbles continues over the airwaves in this weeks show. With the upcoming release of the new Star Trek film this weekend, and the fact that this show landed on Star Wars Day, it was only logical to have an audio battle of epic galactic proportions.

From forgotten new-wave sounding cuts from 80's star trek films to deleted memories of Lapti Nek and Yub Nub, we covered the bases of the two universes of geekdom. I'd post the play list, but it'd be futile humans. It's all music from Star Wars and Star Trek find out which ones, in true J.J. Abrams fashion, you'll just have to listen. Our pal the Gaffer returns this week, in what we hope becomes a regular appearance on the show.

Once again we're back with a new podcast! This week the Best Boy was unable to make, however The Gaffer (of came up and joined us again this week. We had a great time in the studio ranting about various films and nostalgia and we totally thrashed the studio while listening to the soundtrack to Transformers: The Movie. I think you'll keep this podcast to share with your grand kids who still play with those freaking stupid beast-war toys and show them how cool transformers used to be before they got all sissy and took the form of panda bears and Micheal Bay movies.
