Love good action films? Frustrated there aren’t more? So is author/screenwriter/studio&network consultant/professor Ric Meyers (Films of Fury: The Kung Fu Movie Movie [and Book])! So every fortnight he and his action/actor/artist/animator pals yell about what’s wrong, what’s right, what’s good, what’s bad, and, most importantly, how to make it all better!
April Showers o'Action
Come listen to me call shenanigans on the new CW (not) Kung Fu, sadly shake my head at Thunder Force, stare in wonder at the gold-plated poo of New Gods Nezha Reborn, cheer Nobody, marvel (get it?) at Falcon and the Winter Soldier, snarl at Mortal Kombat, and praise Tom Read More...

Action Film Autopsy #101: March In Like a Monster, April Out Like a Monster

Action Film Autopsy #100: Love Action
The 100th Podcast! How to celebrate? Maybe by Prof Ric not babbling and brainfarting as much? Fat chance, so we’ll just have to do with savoring four delicious double features comparing the gravitas of Hanks and Neeson, mix-and-matching the marvelous Mr. Mackie with Ms. Olsen, seeing the Space Sweepers circle Read More...
Action Film Autopsy #99: BestWorstTopBottom
Better late than never? After you hear Prof Ric’s choice for the great and awful action flix of last year, you decide (or not).
Action Film Autopsy #98: New Year’s Flix Fix
Brainfart alert in the cave of Prof Ric’s mind! Let’s see if he can coherently explore Batman’s Dragon Soul, Groundhog Day Boss Level, get to Greenland in one piece, consider Promising Young Woman sans cancel culture, survive 12 Hour Shift, and stick with Jackie at the Vanguard.
Lessons from a True Master
Ric always brings on such interesting guests for his interviews. I appreciate the variety and his decades of deep knowledge and clear love for this subject. His enthusiasm is infectious.
