Martian Drive-In Podcast 68 - Pitch Black Strange Days For the Hugo Awards

In this one, I go from the late-era cyberpunk of Kathryn Bigelow's Strange Days, starring Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett to the gritty working class future of Pitch Black starring Vin Diesel and Radha Mitchell to the current Hugo Award/ Sad/ Rabid Puppies imbroglio which I discuss with Janice Gelb.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 67 - The Mumblecore Special - Safety Not Guaranteed - The One I Love.

This time, we have a couple of low budget but extremely well made mumblecore movies for you. A 2012 movie about a classified ad placed by a time traveller - Safety Not Guaranteed starring Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass, then we go to 2014 for a great little two hander about marital infidelity, counselling and dopplegangers - The One I Love, starring Mark Duplass and Elizabeth Moss.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 66 - Space Truckers Come to Frogtown

This time around, something very much lighter. Two B-Science Fiction movies, one from the 1980s, the 1988 post-apocalyptic fun of Hell Comes To Frogtown starring the late Roddy Piper, Sandahl Bergman and William Smith and then to 1996 for the working-class space opera, Space Truckers starring Dennis Hopper, Stephen Dorff and Debi Mazar. Frogs and square pigs for everyone.
