This week, we travel back to 1998 for this children’s flick… er…. adult flick… um… MOVIE with a stacked cast and toys that go to war! It’s time for Small Soldiers! Here’s the synopsis:

When missile technology is used to enhance toy action figures, the toys soon begin to take their battle programming too seriously.

Plus, we discuss the latest news including movie theaters reopening, SDCC’s move to Comic-Con@Home, The Batman Rumors, and Stephen Amell’s interesting neighbor.

Bad Movie Reviews: Howard the Duck (1986)

We return to Bad Movie Reviews and travel back to 1986 for the blockbuster Marvel\LucasFilm joint, Howard the Duck! That’s right, we’re talking the Lea Thompson live action Howard the Duck film. It’s weird. It’s crazy. It’s creepy. It really shouldn’t be PG. But we’re gonna talk about it in detail!

Plus, we discuss the outrageous voice cast for the upcoming Masters of the Universe: Revelation, the sequel to the original He-Man cartoon. Finally, we break down our first, though minimal, look at the Robert Pattinson Batman costume!

Bad Movie Reviews: Howard the Duck (1986)

The One Where Paul Doesn’t Have a Soul

Episode 19 – The One Where Paul Doesn’t Have a Soul

Would you look at what we have here. Episode 19 of Kaiju Curry House has been released so you can listen to it through your favourite podcast service, or right here!

So, “The One Where Paul Doesn’t Have a Soul” is all about the much loved 80’s classic Harry and the Henderson. However, I didn’t watch this show as a kid and so a lot of the humour isn’t aimed at my age group, so whilst the others have a nostalgic love, I do not. How does that affect my opinion of the film? What else has the suit actor for Harry been in? Listen to the episode now to hear our thoughts, and just to reassure you I do have a soul – Hi, I’m Paul and I type up these blurbs 😉

Oh and always we also have “What have kaij-you been up to” and “If nothing else” to keep you entertained.

Do you love or hate this film? Get in touch and let us know, because we’d like to hear from you.

Further info

As you (may or may not) know we have created this podcast not only because it’s fun for us to talk kaiju, but also because we want to engage with like minded people. So don’t be shy and feel free to get in touch!

If you’re just discovering us, Kaiju Curry House is a new podcast series under the Heroes Podcast Network umbrella.

Joker Movie Review

Mystery Men 20th Anniversary Review

20 years ago, 1999 brought us some classic cinema like The Matrix, Fight Club, American Beauty, and The Sixth Sense. It brought the resurgence of long dead franchises like Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. We saw some truly bad movies like Wild Wild West and were treated with true gems like Iron Giant and Galaxy Quest. But we also received one of the weirdest superhero films to date, Mystery Men. Let’s celebrate 20 years of the satirical superhero flick in the wake of Amazon’s The Boys.

Plus, we talk the latest news in entertainment including Disney’s slashing of 20th Century Fox films, CBS & Viacom reuniting Star Trek, Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and more!

Fill Our Holes: They Live (1988) Review

It’s time for another Fill Our Holes retro review! This week, it’s Derreck’s pick and it brings us back to the 1980’s with the cult John Carpenter film, They Live! The film stars iconic professional wrestler Roddy “Rowdy” Piper along with Keith David. We didn’t plan for this to be our 4th of July episode… but it is pretty fitting, isn’t it?

We, of course, talk the latest in entertainment news including the Avengers: Endgame release and how it fared against Avatar. Then we talk about the new Gremlins cartoon, the possibility of the Flash film still moving forward, and more!
