    The Toxic Avenger (1984)

    The Toxic Avenger (1984)

    Beloved by some, and utterly unknown to others, this 1984 cult classic is an indie in the truest sense, made cheap and dirty.

    Matt K from CinemaJaw returns to break down this Troma staple. We discuss how it's aged poorly, how it hasn't, and low budget genre films acting as a launchpad for burgeoning filmmakers.

    Moonfall

    Moonfall

    Happy April Fools! For our annual so-bad-it's-good episode Matt from The Matt and Mark Movie Show joins me to talk "Moonfall." The last gasp of a dead genre from the 90s and 00s, and one of the most expensive independent films ever it crashed hard at the box office.

    Inherently flawed, and seemingly written by an AI, there is still a lot to treasure in this bizarre conspiracy thriller.
