    Interview with author Matt Blake (Italians in Space bonus episode!)

    Interview with author Matt Blake (Italians in Space bonus episode!)

    We are very pleased to welcome author Matt Blake to the podcast for this special bonus episode. It was Matt's book Science Fiction Italian Style that inspired this whole podcast in the first place, so it was great to get to talk to him about his work and his love for European genre cinema.
    Several of Matt Blake's books are available on Amazon in the UK and around the world so do check them out, particularly his latest book Spanish Cult Cinema, Volume 1: 1960-1964.

    Escape From Galaxy 3 (Giochi erotici nella terza galassia, 1981, Bitto Albertini)

    Escape From Galaxy 3 (Giochi erotici nella terza galassia, 1981, Bitto Albertini)

    Get ready to party with Rod, Adrian and Darth Glitter Beard as they all celebrate the last episode of this first season by firing up the Megatron and getting down on the disco planet, better known as Earth. This is the film that asks the important questions, like "What is water?" and "Do you have any more spandex?"
    We would love to hear what you think of Escape From Galaxy 3, and what you think we should cover in our next season. You can contact us on Twitter, Instagram, or by email at wildwildpodcast@gmail.com

    Beast in Space (La bestia nello spazio, 1980, Alfonso Brescia)

    Beast in Space (La bestia nello spazio, 1980, Alfonso Brescia)

    It's 1980, and things are getting a bit saucy. Join Adrian and Rod as they return to Alfonso Brescia's unique take on space exploration: It is as if he thought, "I know what was wrong with Cosmos, it was missing some horses getting it on."
    We would love to hear what you think of Beast in Space. You can contact us via Twitter and Instagram, or you can email us at wildwildpodcast@gmail.com

    The Humanoid (L'umanoide, 1979, Aldo Lado)

    The Humanoid (L'umanoide, 1979, Aldo Lado)

    Join Adrian and Rod as they travel back into the furthest reaches of the galaxy to find out just exactly what really happened to Richard Kiel after James Bond left him in space at the end of Moonraker.
    The Humanoid is another fun Italian film that makes no attempt to pretend it's not ripping off Star Wars, but this podcast believes that is something to be celebrated. It's got heroes, villains with black helmets, cute robots and guns that go "pew pew!"
    The closing song is called Love Games by the band Ganymede. They've long since split up now but you can still read about their interest in The Humanoid on this fan site. Whilst you're there check out some of the other amazing stuff they have like these behind the scenes stills.
    We would love to hear what you think of this film too. You can contact us via Twitter and Instagram, or you can email us at wildwildpodcast@gmail.com

    Starcrash (1979, Luigi Cozzi)

    Starcrash (1979, Luigi Cozzi)

    Sing with me now: "Starcrash, it's a Starcrash, we're having a Starcrash..." Yes, we've made it to 1979's Italian Star Wars knock-off par excellence, the one and only Starcrash, featuring Caroline Munro in a space bikini and David Hasslehoff with a tight perm.
    In this episode Adrian and Rod share their unabashed enthusiasm for this silly film, whilst not holding back on just how difficult it is to accurately summarise the plot, even when it's written down in front of you.
    We would love to hear what you think of this film too. You can contact us via Twitter and Instagram, or you can email us at wildwildpodcast@gmail.com

    Cosmos: War of the Planets (Anno zero - Guerra nello spazio, 1977, Alfonso Brescia)

    Cosmos: War of the Planets (Anno zero - Guerra nello spazio, 1977, Alfonso Brescia)

    Well, where to start? This film was so difficult to watch that Rod had to pace the room to stay awake, and Adrian actually did fall asleep and was an hour late getting the podcast recording started. Yes, it's Cosmos: War of the Planets, a film that not even its mother would love. You can watch it here to form your own opinion.
    We would love to hear what you think of this film, once you have recovered. You can contact us via Twitter and Instagram, or you can email us at wildwildpodcast@gmail.com
