    0168: Michael Ironside Interview

    0168: Michael Ironside Interview

    This week we interrupt our regular scheduled ranking for an exclusive interview with Michael Ironside aka baddie Richter from Total Recall. The Verhoeven classic has been re-released to celebrate its 30th Anniversary and so Alex got to (virtually) sit down with Michael to discuss the working with Verhoeven, Michael's sci-fi roots and the book adaptation he wished he could've starred in.


    If you want the video version of this interview, you can watch it here!


    Or how about listen to what we thought about Total Recall back in July on Episode 151


    Next week things return to normal as we watch John Carpenter's Dark Star!

    0167: Short Circuit 2

    0167: Short Circuit 2

    Many moons ago we watched Short Circuit and kept saying 'I thought this happened.' throughout. This week the cliffhanger is resolved and we discover if we were actually thinking of Short Circuit 2, or if there's something more serious going on and we're all going senile.


    Elsewhere we discuss the bizarre casting of Fisher Stevens, Sam and Alex reminisce about their time in Toronto, and there is definitely not a quiz. No quiz here. Nope.


    Next week, an SFRS exclusive: Alex sits down around a virtual table for a 40th Anniversay Total Recall chat with Michael Ironside!

    0166: The 10th Victim

    0166: The 10th Victim

    This week we're going all the way back to 1965 to watch The 10th Victim, the italian sci-fi film that 'inspired' Austin Powers. Bad dubbing, amazing costumes and a terrible ending, it's the film that has everything! Join us for crocodile death rolls, terrible robots and high fashion!


    Next week we find out if all the stuff we thought was in Short Circuit 2 when we watched the original is actually there after all.

    0165: Cloverfield

    0165: Cloverfield

    After an unexpected week off because we literally forgot to record an episode we explode back onto your pod delivery device with a hot slice of opinion. Arriving predictably too late to be relevant we watch Cloverfield because it was Halloween at some point. Join us as we discuss the unfortunate timing of Cloverfield's release, how many ways the camera work in this film doesn't make sense, and Sam mentions the Blair Witch 347 times.


    Next week, Italian '60s insanity, it's The 10th Victim!

    0164: Species

    0164: Species

    Halloween is a month-long thing these days and always keen to exploit a commercial holiday we are watching a horror film in mid October- it's Species! Alex is really impressed with the teamwork on display whilst Sam and Chris are unsure about some of the scientific leaps being made. Also, killer squirrels. Again.


    Next week weirdo '60s italian scifi- it's The 10th Victim!

    0163: Time After Time

    0163: Time After Time

    In 1893 HG Wells invents a time machine. Jack the Ripper jumps in and travels to '70s San Francisco with HG in hot pursuit. Sounds like nonsense? Well, it probably is.


    Join us as we find out just how much nonsense, discuss rotating restaurants in Coventry, beautiful old hi-fis, one of the least satisfying conclusions to a film, and the worst place to exchange currency.


    oh and here's HG Wells talking.


    Next week we get spooky for Halloween with Species!
