Martian Drive In Podcast 50 - These Final Hours - Predestination.







Just before Newtonmas I look at two more Australian genre films from the last couple of years. 2013's apocalyptic drama These Final Hours starring starring Nathan Phillips and Angourie Rice and the 2013 time travel drama Predestination starring Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook. The latter is based on the Heinlein story, ...All You Zombies.

The Martian Drive In Podcast 48 - The Golden Compass and The Devil Rides Out




This time I go from a missed opportunity, the 2007 fantasy adventure film The Golden Compass starring Dakota Blue Richard and Nicole Kidman to one of Hammer's most interesting flicks the 1968 Dennis Wheatley adaptation The Devil Rides Out starring Christopher Lee and Charles Gray.

Martian Drive In Podcast 46 - Lucy Things To Come.






This time, I look at one of the best science fiction movies from 1936 - the H.G. Wells adaptation Things To Come starring Raymond Massey and then jump forward 78 years to Luc Besson's 2014 science fiction action flick Lucy starring Scarlett Johanssen. There's also music and a little controversy. Enjoy!

Martian Drive In Podcast 45 - The Outer Limits Of Harlan Ellison





Just for a change this time around, I take a look at the two episodes of The Outer Limits written by Harlan Ellison. Both from 1964, they are Soldier starring Michael Ansara and Lloyd Nolan and the classic Demon With A Glass Hand starring Robert Culp and Arlene Martel. Plus there's feedback disagreeing with me on Dark City.
