Martian Drive In Podcast 43 - The Brother From The Quatermass Xperiment



For forty three I look at one of Hammer's earliest SF movies, the 1955 remake of BBC's television serial The Quatermass Xperiment starring Brian Donlevy and Richard Wordsworth and then we fly to 1984 for John Sayles' refugee SF tale, The Brother From Another Planet, starring Joe Morton.

Phase iv lost ending

Martian Drive In Podcast 42 - It! Phase IV




This time, I look at a bugfuck crazy golem movie from 1967, It! starring Roddy McDowall and Jill Haworth then we get deep into science fiction weirdness with Saul Bass' 1974 Phase IV starring Nigel Davenport, Michael Murphy and Lynne Frederick. Golems and hyperintelligent ants. What more do you want?

Martian Drive In Podcast 41 - The Arrival Screamers





This time around I look at two movies from the mid-90s. B-Pictures but interesting. Firstly there is 1995's Screamers starring Peter Weller - a Canadian SF flick based on a Philip K Dick story, then David Twohey's The Arrival from 1996 starring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Crouse. All that and feedback too.

Martian Drive In Podcast 39 - Everything That's Wrong With Star Wars



This time around, as a result of a generous donation to the podcast's Patreon Campaign, I am looking at everything that's wrong with the first three Star Wars movies. I'm also announcing my chosen alternative casting for the films and explaining why the planets in these films are boring.

Martian Drive In Podcast #38 - Some Australian SF Movies




This time I go into history and look at a bunch of vintage Australian SF films. None of them are world-shattering but they do illustrate the history of Australian film in general and are very interesting in a lot of ways. I also put up the proposition that if I get two donors to the Patreon campaign who specifically ask for it, I will fully review Brian Trenchard-Smith's Turkey Shoot and Dead-End Drive-In on a future podcast.
