#71: Infini-T Force: Farewell, Friend
Classic Tatsunoko super heroes return in this cross dimensional, team up film follow up to the 2017 CG animated Infini-T Force series by Tatsunoko and Digital Frontier studios. Tune in for the full review of Infini-T Force: Farewell, Friend!
Team B #9: Jack Frost (The Slasher Film)
Not satisfied with reviewing just one Jack Frost movie this season -- oh no, not this Christmas buster! -- the Team B crew had to go and review two of them. For your listening pleasure, here's Jack Frost (1997) a.k.a. the snowman slasher film.
Team B #8: Jack Frost (The Keaton Film)
Team B review Jack Frost (1998): the Michael Keaton film in which he plays a neglectful father and musician who, after dying in a fatal automobile accident, is given one last chance to make things right when his son summons him back to life (using a magical harmonica he gifted him on the eve of his death) as a wisecracking, fun-loving snowman - Oh Joy!
#70: The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires
We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming this evening to bring you a scream filled night of ghouls, ghosts, vampires, and kung fu. *Record Scratch* You heard me! On tonight's Blade Licking Thieves spooktacular we're watching the 1974 Hammer Films and Shaw Brothers co-production, The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires, in which Hammer Films regular, Peter Cushing (a.k.a. Grand Moff Tarkin), reprising his role as the legendary vampire hunter Van Helsing, teams up with Hong Kong martial art superstar David Chiang (and a host of other Shaw Brothers talent of the 70s) to wage battle against Count Dracula and the 7 Golden Vampires of China in a one of a kind East meets West genre mashup.
Team B #7: Dog Soldiers
Team B are back at it once again: enduring the pain, so we don't have to. This episode they're taking a bite out of director Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers (2002). It's an action / horror film about a group of soldiers on a rescue mission that's about to go horribly wrong -- when werewolves attack!
Great for so many reasons!
I know Fairy Tail is a stretch but four seasons in I’m obsessed and had hoped these guys had touched on it!
It sparks joy
