Greatest Of All Time Week: Galaxy Quest (1999)

Galaxy Quest movie review from the Salty Nerds has them never giving up and never surrendering!  

In what is arguably a better Star Trek movie than 90% of the Star Trek movies out there, Galaxy Quest is a hilarious and heartwarming movie about a group of washed-up TV actors who must embody their roles to help save an alien race from total annihilation.  

Starring an amazing cast consisting of Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, and Justin Long, this ensemble cast comes together to create a truly wonderful science fiction adventure film.  What do you think of Galaxy Quest?  Do you love it?  Hate it?

Salty Nerd Reviews: SEE - The House Of Enlightenment (S3E5)

CHET CHET everyone!  We are back at the good old House of Enlightenment for a fun little siege, all set to the dulcet tunes of Guns & Roses "Welcome To The Jungle."  

Sybeth is back and this time she's making all the disgruntled Witchfinders forget about the fact that she destroyed their homes and killed their families, and instead enlists them back in her service with the simple argument that "She's their queen!"  Yas Queen.  Yas.  

Then Tormada shows up at the House of Enlightenment to get his bombs and finds Boba Voss and crew there instead.  Turns out, Boba and the three sighted people with him now have access to a TON of guns that they simply don't use, and Tormada is able to escape with all the bombs they originally went there to destroy.  This is yet another awesomely bad episode of SEE and we can't wait to talk about it!

Greatest Of All Time Week: The Princess Bride (1987)

The Princess Bride movie review has the Salty Nerds declaring Wuv, Twoo Wuv for this classic movie.  

A story about adventure, intrigue, and romance, The Princess Bride is probably one of the most quotable movies ever made.  Based on William Goldman's novel and directed by Rob Reiner, the movie is about a poor farm boy who becomes a legendary pirate in order to win the hand of his true love, who also happens to be betrothed to an evil Prince who wants to kill her in order to start a war.  Now, the farm boy must team up with a Spanish duelist and a giant in order to save her - all while skipping the "kissing stuff."  

Starring Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Robin Wright, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, and Andre the Giant, this fantastical story is considered to be one of the greatest movies ever made (at least according to the Salty Nerds).  If you love this fantasy movie as much as the Nerds do, you're not going to want to miss this review.  

Did you love the Princess Bride?  Do you find it inconceivable that anyone could hate it?  Anyone want a peanut?  Let us know in Discord community here:  http://www.saltynerddiscord.com

Salty Nerd Reviews: Buck Rogers In The 25th Century - Ardala Returns (S1E14)

Hey, guess who's back?  Everyone's favorite scantily-clad evil space princess, Ardala!  She's returning to get revenge on Earth, but she has something special in mind for Buck Rogers.

After kidnapping Buck and Twiki, Ardala just can't get enough of the OG Buck Rogers, so she decides to clone him so she can have as many Buck boy-toys as she wants!  Obviously, Buck ain't having any of that, so he does what Buck does and foils Ardala's plans to get smexy with him and his clones and saves the Earth while he's at it!

What did you think of Ardala Returns?  Would you liked to be kidnapped by her?  Why didn't Buck take her up on her offer?  Why didn't Twiki break them out of their cell earlier?  Let us know your thoughts in our Discord Server:  http://www.saltynerddiscord.com

Salty Nerd Reviews: SEE - The Storm (S3E4)

SEE Season 3 Episode 4 has people smearing poop on their face in an odd trend this season, but whatever, the Salty Nerds are here for it.  

In this episode of the Jason Momoa epic series from AppleTV, Kofun walks around with a knife wound in his back the entire time, Sybeth is eating all kinds of weird stuff when she's not smearing horse dung all over herself, Harlan's F-buddy makes a very serious move, we have a brief Stargate Atlantis reunion, and we return to the House of Enlightenment!

Recall Week: Total Recall (2012)

Total Recall 2012 movie review is mostly the Salty Nerds talking about how many times they fell asleep while watching this extremely boring action movie.  

This "reimagining" of the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger film from Paul Verhoeven comes to us from the creator of the Underworld franchise, Len Wiseman.  Starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and Bryan Cranston, Total Recall is the story of Douglas Quaid who may or may not be a secret agent that's forced to choose between his hot wife and his hot girlfriend in order to save the world from evil corporate interests, all while never going to Mars.  

Though this movie is visually stunning (with lots of lens flare!) and the actors are all very good looking, it's missing the charm and fun of the original film, and is the epitome of a "slacktion" film.  

What is your Total Recall 2012 movie review?  Did you love it?  Hate it? Do you wish you could go to Rekall and get all memory of it wiped from you mind?  Let us know in our Discord server!  Join our community here:  http://www.saltynerddiscord.com

Recall Week: Total Recall (1990)

Total Recall 1990 movie review from the Salty Nerds has them all wanting to get their ass to Mars so they can unlock ancient alien artifacts and party with three-tittied hookers.  After all, they got 5 kids to feed!  

Based on the Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, Total Recall marks the only collaboration between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Paul Verhoeven, and it's glorious to behold.  Also starring a very sexy Sharon Stone, as well as Michael Ironside and Ronny Cox, Total Recall is the tale of a lowly construction worker named Quaid whose visit to the memory implant facility of Recall goes horribly wrong, and now his wife is trying to kill him and he has to go to Mars to uncover the mystery surrounding his true identity.  But are the harrowing events really happening, or are they all part of a psychotic delusion brought upon by a botched Recall procedure?

Salty Nerd Reviews: Buck Rogers In The 25th Century - Space Vampire (S1E14)

Buck Rogers In The 25th Century Space Vampire Review has the Salty Nerds marveling over how goofy the Vorvon villain is, and wondering why the show just didn't call him the "Unibrowpire"?  

In this episode, Buck and Wilma are on their way to a sexy vacation getaway, but when they stop at a space station to drop off Twiki, they find themselves quarantined and fighting an army of "mostly dead" zombies and a weird looking Space Vampire that has the hots for Wilma.  Buck must use all of his 20th century "Big Buck Energy" to stop this formidable alien before he can run away with Buck's woman.

Salty Nerd Reviews: House of the Dragon - We Light The Way (S1E5)

At the midway point of season 1, The House Of The Dragon seems to be losing some of its steam with a number of subplots and events that don't seem to be properly set up and actually confusing to the audience if they haven't read the books.  In this episode, King Viserys goes to Seastone to make nice with House Velaryon and to wed Rhaenyra to Laenor Velaryon.  Ser Criston Cole gets SIMPy for Rhaenyra, Daemon ends his marriage and starts eyeing Laena Velaryon, Lyonel Strong is the new Hand of the King and his son Larys starts acting like Littlefinger, and Alicent embraces her role as Queen and starts making some shrewd moves now that her father has left the Red Keep.

Judgement Week: Dredd (2012)

Dredd Movie Review from the Salty Nerds has them geeking out over this "day in the life of Judge Dredd" movie from Karl Urban and Alex Garland.  

Nowhere near as campy as Stallone's 1995 take on the Judge Dredd character, this film sees Urban's Dredd team up with Olivia Thirlby as a mutant rookie Judge as they take on a crime lord named Ma-Ma, played by Cersei Lannister herself, Lena Headey.  This film has lots of slow motion and tons of action!  But best yet, Karl Urban is the only lead actor to ever have the commitment to never remove his helmet a single time in a movie!

CHET CHET y'all!  It's time to dig into episode 3 of AppleTV's SEE, starring Jason Momoa!  

Crazy Sybeth Caine is on the loose, and Maghra is afraid her escape may lead to war with Trevantis.  But those darn renegade Witchfinders are at it again, and they almost kill Kofun!  Wren shows up and confirms that Trevantis is up to no good and there are a lot of bombs at the House of Enlightenment that need to get destroyed before they destroy Pensa.  And Harlan is confirmed to have one hell of a c**k.

Judgement Week: Judge Dredd (1995)

Judge Dredd Movie Review from the Salty Nerds have them marveling at just how many times Sylvester Stallone and Armand Assante can shout "LAW" at each other and make "Justice" puns.  

Judge Dredd from 1995 is a guilty pleasure movie that sees Sylvester Stallone re-team with his Demolition Man co-star Rob Schneider and Diane Lane to uncover a very convoluted conspiracy plot, all while NOT wearing Judge Dredd's iconic helmet.

Salty Nerd Reviews: Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - Planet Of The Amazon Women (S1E10)

Buck Rogers Planet Of The Amazon Women is probably one of the sexiest episodes of Television ever released to the general public.  Buck is sidetracked from a romantic dinner with Wilma Deering when two scantily clad sisters send out a distress beacon to lure Buck to a planet where men are in short supply.  Buck is quickly captured and auctioned off as a prime specimen of masculinity, and forced to show off his chest and wear sexy leather outfits.  Deering suspects something is up and goes to rescue Buck, but Buck don't need the help of no silly woman!  He uses his charm and guile to not only escape, but return all the missing men to the Planet of the Amazon Women, while also solving the problem of intergalactic negotiations with a bunch of alien jerks.  Just another day for Buck Rogers in the 25th Century!

Salty Nerd Reviews: House of the Dragon - King of the Narrow Sea (S1E4)

The Nerds are back to talk about episode 4 of the HBO original series (and Game of Thrones prequel) The House Of The Dragon!  In this episode, Daemon returns to King's Landing to make out with his niece, Rhaenyra puts the moves on Ser Criston Cole, Otto Hightower spreads some unseemly rumors, and Viserys has lots more wounds than when we last saw him!  Oh, and there are a TON of pornographic tapestries hanging all over the Red Keep.

The show is also taking some departures from the source material, but no one except Jude seems to care all that much.  However, MattVader is getting a little tired of the show's slow pace.  Will things pick up soon?  Who knows!  We know nothing.

80s Chinese Mysticism Week: Big Trouble In Little China (1986)

Big Trouble In Little China movie review from the Salty Nerds have them perplexed at this awesome cult classic movie from John Carpenter and Kurt Russell.  Kurt Russell plays the legendary Jack Burton who teams up with Dennis Dun and Victor Wong to fight the cursed Chinese sorcerer David Lo Pan (played by James Hong ) all the while romancing Kim Cattrall and dropping epic one-liners.  

Big Trouble In Little China is ahead of its time in many ways, and part of its box office failure was because the studio didn't know how to market such an off-the-wall movie.  But John Carpenter has such a subversive take on typical 1908s action movies that this film is quite brilliant once you "get the joke."

Salty Nerd Reviews: SEE - Watch Out For Wolves (S3E2)

The Salty Nerds have a bone to pick with the second episode of season 3 of AppleTV's Jason Momoa series SEE.  Actually, several bones as the show slides back into season 1 levels of glorious ridiculousness.  Kofun is still being a terrible father, Haniwa is being annoying, Boba Voss smells like poop, Maghra is the worst Queen ever, and Sybeth is back on the loose for no apparent reason.  Oh, and the guards in Pensa are the absolute worst.

80s Chinese Mysticism Week: The Golden Child (1986)

The Golden Child movie review from the Salty Nerds has them talking about this 1986 classic from Eddie Murphy which went from being a serious mystical thriller to what essentially amounts to a supernatural version of Beverly Hills Cop.  This fantasy comedy film is a nostalgic favorite of the Salty Nerds and follows Eddie Murphy as private investigator Chandler Jarrell as he teams up with expert martial artist Kee Nang to search for the kidnapped Golden Child.  Along the way, Eddie Murphy deals with strange mystical creatures, biker gangs, and the evil Sardo Numspa, played by Tywin Lannister himself - Charles Dance.  Also, you can't have an 80s movie that deals with Asians without Victor Wong and James Hong!  

But the real question is, why is this movie (which was originally going to star Mel Gibson) so hated by Eddie Murphy that he swore never to do a sequel to it?  We discuss all this and more in our review of The Golden Child!  What is your The Golden Child movie review?  Did you love it?  Hate it?  Do you want the knife?  Pleeeeeaaaasssse?  Let us know on our Discord server at:  http://www.saltynerddiscord.com

Salty Nerd Reviews: Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - Awakening Parts 1 & 2 (S1E1&2)

If you thought you knew what real science fiction was, then you haven't yet seen BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY!  The story of a US Astronaut who is cryogenically frozen in a freak accident and who wakes up 500 years in the future to help save all of humanity - and be SEXY while doing it!  

Gil Gerard gives Captain Kirk a run for his money as Captain William 'Buck' Rogers, the suave, awesome, and SEXY human from the 20th century.  He's got his trusty sidekicks Dr. Theopolis, Twiki, and Erin Gray as Colonel Wilma Deering.  But he's also got the drop-dead gorgeous Pamela Hensley as Princess Ardala, all about seducing this fine specimen of masculinity.  

The Salty Nerds can barely handle the raw sexual energy seeping from the screen as they review the premiere episodes of this forgotten classic sci-fi TV series.  If you haven't yet watched Buck Rogers In The 25th Century, you're in for a real treat!

Stand aside, plebs!  The Salty Nerds speak to their QUEEN as actress Sylvia Hoeks graces us with her presence.  As the evil Queen Kane on Jason Momoa's AppleTV show SEE, the Salty Nerds have been praying to Sylvia for a long, long time.  

In this interview, Slyvia breaks down how she was cast in the role of Queen, how she crafted her iconic character, and entertains us with funny stories from the set.  Oh, she also talks about her time working with Harrison Ford and Denis Villeneuve on the set of Blade Runner 2049, and also discusses the possibility of appearing in a future DUNE movie.  If you're a fan of SEE and of this amazing actress, you won't want to miss this fun, candid interview!  (She may even give some hints as to what we can expect from SEE season 3!)

Tremors Week: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection (2001)

Tremors 3 Back To Perfection movie review from the Salty Nerds has them liking this Tremors sequel a little better than the second film, but not by much.  

By this point in the Tremors franchise, Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward are nowhere to be found, so Michael Gross steps up to the plate as his character Burt Gummer is now the main character of the series.  We return to the small town of Perfection Nevada where many of the original actors from the first Tremors film reprise their roles, albeit 11 years later.  This time, the Graboids return, but evolve yet AGAIN into a new form that is better than the Shriekers from the second movie, but with an even more ridiculous name.

Tremors Week: Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996)

Fred Ward and Michael Gross are back for the second installment of the Tremors franchise, but Kevin Bacon is nowhere to be found.  This time, the Graboids evolve into a less scary version called Shriekers, and now both the comedy and the tension is extremely lacking.  But Burt Gummer is back, and he's the highlight of the film, so at least there's that.

Salty Nerd Reviews: Farscape - Family Ties (S1E22)

Farscape Season 1 Episode 22 review from the Salty Nerd Podcast has them talking about Family Ties and the MASSIVE cliffhanger season 1 of this delightful sci-fi show ended on.  However, many of the Salty Nerds are not liking Farscape, because it's too weird or too muppety!  Jim Henson still has a lot of influence on this TV series, and some people don't think that's a good thing!  

In this episode, Rygel betrays the crew of Moya and tries to sell them out.  But due to Scorpius looking to execute Rygel, the alien teams up with former big bad Craise and the two defect to Moya just in time to help John Crichton out with his plan to blow up a moon and create all types of trouble for Scorpius and the Peacekeepers.

Salty Nerd Reviews: SEE - Heavy Hangs The Head (S3E1)

Hey Everyone!  SEE is back for its third and final season, and the Salty Nerds are here to break down SEE Season 3 Episode 1 - Heavy Hangs The Head.

It's been almost a whole year since Jason Momoa left his family behind and walked off into the woods, and a lot has happened since then.  David Hewlett has made some bombs. The war with the Bears Fans has ended.  Kofun witnessed the birth of his son/cousin.  And doors have been replaced by satellite dishes!

Come for the political intrigue, stay for the poop beards, dogs named "No," and Harlan's masculine wiles, as the Salty Nerds talk about the season premiere of one of their favorite TV shows, AppleTV's SEE.

What did you think of episode 1 of season 3?  Did you love it?  Hate it?  Are you obsessed with satellite dish doors, too?  Let us know on our Discord server where we dive deep into these episodes and have a blast doing it!  Join our Discord for free here:  http://www.saltynerddiscord.com

Tremors Week: Tremors (1990) featuring David Hewlett

Tremors movie review from the Salty Nerds has them debating on whether or not this movie is an underrated classic, or simply a fun monster movie that's gained cult status over the years.  

In Tremors (1990), Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, and Michael Gross (whose character Burt Gummer goes on to be the main character of the franchise) fight a bunch of underground graboids that have a hunger for human flesh and really, really good ears.  This movie started the Tremors franchise and is directed by Ron Underwood with a screenplay from Short Circuit scribes S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock.  It's an unusual monster movie that has just the right amount of campy terror and tension.  

Joining the Salty Nerds for their review is none other than Stargate Atlantis actor David Hewlett, who's also a big fan of this movie!  What other horror movie podcast gets this kind of celebrity guest? Ha ha ha.

Stephen King Week: Carrie (1976)

Carrie 1976 movie review from the Salty Nerds have them discussing Brian de Palma's horror movie masterpiece that successfully adapted Stephen King's first novel into a feminist allegory for smashing the patriarchy.  

Sissy Spacek stars as the titular Carrie White.  She's bad at volleyball, doesn't know what a period is, and can movie stuff with her mind.  Nancy Allen is busy hating her while she isn't getting slapped around by John Travolta, and Amy Irving is trying to hook Carrie up with her boyfriend William Katt when she isn't getting hit on by Steven Spielberg.  

Forget the telekinesis, probably the scariest thing in this whole movie is Piper Laurie as Carrie's crazy religious mother.  Well, that and all the 70s bush on display.

Stephen King Week: Firestarter (1984)

Firestarter movie review from the Salty Nerds has them marveling at just how much Netflix's Stranger Things ripped this movie off.  

We all know that the Duffer Brothers were heavily inspired by the work of Stephen King when they were making Stranger Things, but they essentially ripped off the Firestarter 1984 movie starring Drew Barrymore as a child gifted with powerful psychic abilities that is relentlessly pursued by a secretive government agency who wants to either control her or kill her.  

Also starring David Keith, Martin Sheen, and George C. Scott as a ponytailed Native American (no joke), this is one of Stephen King's best known horror movies and set the stage for Drew Barrymore to star in E.T.

Stephen King Week: Silver Bullet (1985)

Silver Bullet (1985) movie review from the Salty Nerds has them laughing at how terrible the werewolf is in this Stephen King werewolf movie!  

Most people probably don't know that Stephen King has a werewolf movie out there, let alone one starring Gary Busey, but it's true!  Corey Haim plays a wheelchair-bound toddler who tries to warn his small Maine town about a rampaging werewolf, all while zooming around in souped-up wheelchairs dubbed "The Silver Bullet."  

Based on the Stephen King Novella "The Cycle Of The Werewolf" this movie is one of the early 1980s Stephen King horror movies that started the long string of bad King adaptations.  The screenplay for this movie was written by Stephen King himself, and all the typical King tropes are there.  But not even that is enough to save this movie.

The Salty Nerds take a look at Farscape season 1 episode 20, The Hidden Memory, and are totally freaked out by what the muppet did to Chiana in this episode.  

When last we left Ben Browder's John Crichton, he was being mercilessly tortured by new bad guy Scorpius.  But now that Aeryn is feeling better, Claudia Black is all about rescuing her favorite Earthing!  Aided by Gilina, the crew of Moya go down to rescue Crichton while their spaceship gives birth.  And hijinks ensue.

Salty Nerd Reviews: The House Of The Dragon (S1E1) - The Heirs of the Dragon

Hey everyone - Game Of Thrones is back!  Well, sort of.  House of the Dragon is a prequel to good ol' Game of Thrones, focusing on House Targaryen at the height of their power and the civil war within their house that almost destroyed them and lead to the extinction of the Dragons.

Episode 1 feels like vintage Game of Thrones and knows it has a lot to make up for after the abysmal and disappointing final season of GOT.  But it actually seems up to the task with increased production value and input from series creator (and expert author) George R.R. Martin.  We're introduced to a lot of important players in this episode, but it seems to be setting the stage for some epic medieval fantasy political maneuvering to come.

The Salty Nerds are joined by author C.C. Ekeke to breakdown this episode like a proper Game of Thrones podcast would.  Join us every Monday as we drop our take on the latest House of the Dragon episode from HBOMax.  (Yes, we're flirting with becoming a House of the Dragon podcast for sure!)

Horror Sequels Go To Space: Jason X (2001)

The Jason X Movie Review from the Salty Nerds has them marveling at the sheer camp of the tenth entry into the Friday The 13th franchise.  So if you want to smoke some weed and have premarital sex, this is the movie for you!  Sort of.  

Jason Voorhees has escaped from the Crystal Lake Research Facility and gets cryogenically frozen, only to be awoken 500 years later.  After killing a bunch of horny space teenagers and space marines, Jason gets beat up by an "uploaded" android.  But a bunch of nano-ants give him an upgrade to UBER JASON and now he's pretty much unstoppable.  

This is the final time Kane Hodder plays Jason Voorhees, and this movie also stars Lexa Doig, Peter Mensah, and even has a cameo from filmmaker David Cronenberg.  If you thought horror couldn't get any sillier, wait until you see Jason X - one scene in particular is laugh-out-loud funny.  

Though we're not a horror movie podcast, we do like to review horror films, ESPECIALLY the campy ones!  Come check out our review of Friday The 13th part 10 (or Jason X, because New Line couldn't legally use the title Friday the 13th) and laugh along with us!

August Bites Week: Day Shift (2022)

Day Shift review from the Salty Nerds has them marveling over the fact that there's a Netflix Original movie that they actually like for once.  

Day Shift, starring Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dogg, is the type of movie that would spawn if Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Blade, and John Wick were all in a wild orgy and had a baby together.  Jamie Foxx is a vampire hunter who needs some quick cash, so he's teamed up with his "union rep" Dave Franco to find some vampires.  This horror action comedy film is a lot of fun and has some incredible action scenes and great mythology to it.  It's also a very unevenly paced movie, but it's so entertaining you can easily overlook many of its shortcomings.

Horror Sequels Go To Space: Leprechaun 4 - In Space (1997)

Leprechaun 4 In Space movie review from the Salty Nerds have them debating as to whether this movie starring Warwick Davis as a fun sized homicidal maniac rampaging through a space ship and wielding lightsabers and bursting through people's peens is secretly brilliant comedy, or one of the worst films ever made.  

What started as a joke to spoof the Apollo 13 movie became an actual movie called Leprechaun 4: In Space.  What started as a genuine attempt at a horror film starring Jennifer Aniston in the early 90s has morphed into what can only be described as "pure schlock" as space marines and an evil German scientist cyborg try to fight the evil Leprechaun before he can marry a space princess and become king of the universe.  

If you like horror movies, and horror movie podcasts, then you may not like this review because there's nothing particularly scary about this movie.  In fact, it can be argued the whole film is a bad joke - one that's been played on the audience.  But fear not!  The Salty Nerds are here to review this horror film and give you their honest opinion on it.

August Bites Week: Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1992)

Check out the movie that started the Buffy craze - Buffy The Vampire Slayer!  The original vision of everyone's favorite cheerleader-turned-vampire-hunter from Joss Whedon, starring Kristy Swanson, Luke Perry, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens, and Rutger Hauer.  This movie was originally more of a serious horror movie, but thanks to studio interference it became more of a comedy, much to the chagrin of Joss Whedon, who eventually ended up walking off set in protest.

Vampires are on the loose in Los Angeles, and only the prophesized "Slayer" can stop them.  Unfortunately, the latest slayer, Buffy, hasn't been trained by her mentor Merrick yet, despite being in high school.  Now that the evil vampire master Lothos is in town, Buffy must rely on her natural skills and keen fashion sense to take on the demons of the night!  (And look good while doing it.)

This is a very different version of Buffy that we got from the beloved Buffy The Vampire Slayer TV show, but it still has its own charm to it.  Whether you're a horror film fan, a comedy film fan, or just someone who likes vampires, this is a movie for you!  And when the Salty Nerds devote their movie review podcast to a film Jude goes crazy over, you know it's going to be a good episode of this film review podcast!  So strap in, get your blonde mustache on, and prepare to spend a long long time dying from a stake to the heart, because the Salty Nerds are going to take on 1992's Buffy The Vampire Slayer!

Salty Nerd Reviews: Farscape - PK Tech Girl (S1E7)

Farscape Season 1 Episode 7 review from the Salty Nerds has them watching PK Tech Girl - the episode where Crichton gets some side-action from a cute Peacekeeper and makes Aeryn jealous, all the while trying to survive frog-suit space pirates who breathe fire!  

This Farscape review and retrospective has the crew of Moya stumbling upon a derelict Peacekeeper warship in the uncharted territories, and wouldn't you know it?  Commander Crais has already been by and left a team of technicians behind to salvage it.  Unfortunately, all but one of them were killed by vicious space pirates called the Sheyang, who have returned to finish the salvage and want really badly to destroy Moya and her crew!  

Ben Browder and Claudia Black are joined by Alyssa-Jane Cook as Gilina in this episode, which is mostly just set-up for other episodes the Nerds plan to watch from later in Farscape season 1.  It's not the best episode of Farscape, but it is still an enjoyable one.  We're not a full time Farscape podcast but we're having fun watching the show and still have a few more episodes to go for the month!  If you enjoy sci-fi podcasts or TV review podcasts, be sure to subscribe to us!  We dive deep into a lot of classic TV shows on the Salty Nerd Podcast.

Did you know that Jim Carrey's first starring role was as a high school virgin who is slowly being turned into a Vampire by evil (but sexy) Lauren Hutton?  It's True!  The Salty Nerds take a look at the horror movie comedy film mash-up Once Bitten.  Originally written as a starring vehicle for Elvira, this is a film about a vampire Countess who needs to drink the blood of a virgin every year in order to preserve her eternal beauty.  But finding a virgin in the 80s is more difficult than it seems!  But she thinks her problems are solved when she bumps into hapless (and hard up) high schooler Mark Kendall, who is willing to cheat on his long-time girlfriend Robin in order to lose his V-card.  Little does he know he's unwillingly trading it in for a different kind of V-Card - as in VAMPIRE!

Young Jim Carrey shines in this horror comedy about high school angst.  And Los Angeles in the 80s was crazy, wasn't it?  If you haven't yet seen Once Bitten, then you're in for a treat as the Salty Nerds break it down in their movie review podcast.  Seriously, what other film review podcast do you know of that watches movies like this?  Subscribe to the Salty Nerd Podcast now and get all the movie reviews and film reviews you can handle!

Salty Nerd Reviews: Prey (2022)

Prey movie review from the Salty Nerds has them talking about this prequel to the Predator movies from writer/director Dan Trachtenberg.  

The Prey Movie has taken a lot of criticism in the build up to its release on HULU for being "woke" and replacing the beefy Arnold Schwarzenegger with the petit Amber Midthunder as the main character who faces off with the Feral Predator.  Is it really that bad?  Or did the movie fall into the "get woke go broke" trap?  

Technically a Predator 5, Prey is said to be an origin story of the Predator in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, we definitely get to see a Predator story that is very different from the last outing we got with Shane Black's The Predator.  But is re-hashing the same Predator movie formula a winning strategy?  

Whether you are a fan of action movie podcasts or horror movie podcasts, we got you covered with the Salty Nerd Podcast!  The Nerds dive deep into this movie to let you know if it's worth watching or not.

August Bites Week: Transylvania 6-5000 (1985)

What do you get when you try to cross classic horror movies with screwball comedy with a cast of all-stars from the 1980s?  If you said Transylvania 6-5000, you'd be right!

This is a movie about two tabloid journalists who go to Transylvania to investigate stories of Frankenstein's monster running loose, and once there the intrepid duo cross paths with vampires, wolfmen, mad scientists, and Michael Richards.

Transylvania 6-5000 stars Jeff Goldblum, Carol Kane, Ed Begley Jr., Jeffrey Jones, John Byner, and the first appearances of Geena Davis and Michael Richards.  It's a fun, light-hearted horror comedy romp written and directed by Rudy De Luca on behalf of the Dow Chemical Company who financed the picture in order to launder money out of Yugoslavia. (No joke.)  So if you like campy horror and screwball comedy, then this is the movie for you!

Mel Gibson Week - Braveheart (1995)

Hey Nerds!  In this episode we put on facepaint and scream for FREEDOM as they geek out over Mel Gibson and his Oscar-winning movie about the Scottish folk-hero William Wallace.  Yes, this is our Braveheart movie review podcast!

Though the film plays a tad fast-and-loose with actual history, this 1995 movie has some epic battle scenes and stirring speeches that have wormed their way into the cultural fabric of our times.  Who knew men in kilts could be so inspirational?

Mel Gibson directed and starred in this movie, wearing some epic hair extensions while doing so.  He's joined by Sophie Marceau, Angus Macfadyen, Brian Cox, Catherine McCormack, Brendan Gleeson, and Tommy Flanagan in a script from screenwriter Randall Wallace.

What is your Braveheart film review?  Did you love it?  Hate it?  Can you take your FREEEEDDDDOOOOOMMMMM???  Let us know!

Mel Gibson Week - Apocalypto (2006)

Apocalypto movie review from the Salty Nerds has them becoming history buffs in order to understand this "foreign film" by Mel Gibson.

Apocalypto is the story of Jaguar Paw and his quest to save his family after a brutal Mayan warband invades his village and captures him and his friends to be taken back to their city to be sold off as slaves and given up for human sacrifice.  Jaguar Paw escapes and is then pursued by the ruthless band of Mayan Warriors and must use his wits and experience in the jungle to get back to his pregnant wife before she drowns in the massive ground cave that he hid her in.

This Apocalypto analysis has the Salty Nerds split because some think this movie is brilliant and the Apocalypto reaction from others is that it's too brutal and not fun to watch at all.  (And some of the Salty Nerds just hate reading subtitles!)  As with all Mel Gibson films, the historical accuracy of this epic South America tale of rainforest survival is in question, but Mel has never let little things like "history" get in the way of a good story!

What is your Apocalypto review?  Did you love it?  Hate it?  Did it make you squirm?  This is one movie review podcast you won't want to miss!  And be sure to let others know about our little film review podcast by leaving us a 5-star rating and telling your friends about the Salty Nerds!

Mel Gibson Week - Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

Hacksaw Ridge movie review from the Salty Nerds has them marveling at Andrew Garfield and his touching performance as a World War II medic who refuses to carry a gun while saving everyone he can on the battlefield.

Inspired by the true story of Desmond Doss, a contentious objector who enlisted to save lives rather than take them, Mel Gibson directs this movie to perfection.  In addition to Andrew Garfield as Doss, the film also stars Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving, and Teresa Palmer.

Both heartwarming and shocking, Hacksaw Ridge is the latest film Mel Gibson directed and it is also his most powerful.  Come join the Salty Nerds as they break down this modern masterpiece of a film!  We wouldn't be able to consider ourselves a real movie review podcast if we didn't cover this one!

Kill Bill Week: Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)

Kill Bill Vol. 2 Review from the Salty Nerds has them taking a look at the second part of Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece that crosses kung fu and cowboy westerns in a hodge-podge of awesomeness.

When we last left Uma Thurman, she'd just had an epic showdown in the House of the Blue Leaves, and now she only has three more names on her list - Bud, Elle, and BILL.  We finally get to see a surprisingly sober David Carradine as Bill in Kill Bill Vol 2, along with an eyepatched Daryl Hannah and a surprisingly smooth Michael Madsen.  This rip-roaring tale of revenge heads to a climax with the brutal training of Pai Mei coming in handy, as we finally get to see the five-finger exploding heart technique in action.

Among Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the Kill Bill movies rank among some of Tarantino's best - some would even call these movies Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece!

What is your Kill Bill Vol. 2 review?  Did you like it?  Hate it?  Would you ever hock a Hatori Hanzo sword?  Are your tits filled with rock salt?  Are you a renegade killer bee?  Let us know in the comments over on our website!

Kill Bill Week: Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003)

Kill Bill Vol. 1 review from the Salty Nerds has them talking about what could be considered filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece. Centered around a character created by Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman, Kill Bill is a tale of rip-roaring revenge as The Bride goes on a rampage against those who destroyed her life and left her for dead.

David Carradine plays the titular Bill, and his squad of brutal assassins are portrayed by Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, Vivica A. Fox, and Lucy Liu. In the first installment of this epic tale, Tarantino delivers a fascinating and pulse-pounding tribute to samurai and kung-fu films he grew up on, all culminating in an epic climax in the House of the Blue Leaves in Japan.

This is a favorite of the Salty Nerds and is one of those movies that remind them why they do a movie review podcast. This film review of Kill Bill was a lot of fun - so much fun that they had to do a sketch for the start of it!
