This time we go from cold war paranoia in THE 27th DAY starring Gene Barry and Valerie French, then to the craziness that was 1975 and Roger Corman's New World Pictures for DEATH RACE 2000 starring David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone and cars.
The new voicemail number is 206 337 7721.

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.

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.

This time around. Danny Danger Oz, Paul Poulton and I talk movies, Marvel superheroes, Orson Scott Card, Clint Eastwood's musical abilities and sundry other subjects of pertinence to geeks and fans. No specific movies this time, just friends shooting the shit.

Here are some pics of the Red Planet from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Weird, beautiful and a wonderfully evocative reminder that all planets are immensely complex places.
