VIDEO: Green Lantern (2011)

It’s time for Anarchy at the Movies, where your host Joshua the Anarchist looks at (relatively) new releases. In this installment, a great light has gone out in the universe: it’s the fans’ hopes for a good Green Lantern movie!

VIDEO: Hulk (2003)

Watch as Joey explains why he likes everything about it: Eric Bana’s performance, the references to the comics, the exploration of Bruce Banner’s psyche, and yes, even the giant poodle.

VIDEO: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

In her second requested review, Sofie takes on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, starring Michael Cera as a dorky adult-olescent whose life resembles old Nintendo games. You probably think her review will be much different than the dreaded Mr. Mendo review of the same movie, but will it? You gotta watch and find out!

VIDEO: Wonder Woman (2011) “Pilot”

Sofie examines the most famous comic book super-heroine of all time, Wonder Woman, by looking at the awful, awful way Hollywood and the TV industry treated the character in the 2011 David E. Kelley-produced NBC pilot starring Adrienne Palicki as Wonder Woman, which was so bad that (very fortunately) it never aired.

VIDEO: Batman Begins (2005)

It’s Ursa’s Five Fave Fings (she’s a trained alliterationist–don’t try this at home) about Batman Begins! And Batman, according to this movie, begins with Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes’ lack of undergarments, themes of idealism and fear, and Christian Bale’s abs.

VIDEO: Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody (2012)

What better way to start off a new show than with Vivid’s porn parody of the biggest film of the summer? Starring Dale DaBone as Iron Man, Brooklyn Lee as the Black Widow, ex-wrestler Chyna as She-Hulk, and many others, this is a movie that strangely enough includes way more Marvel characters than the actual Avengers movie.

VIDEO: Hellboy (2004)

Ron Perlman is a young demon summoned from hell during WWII to be a secret Axis weapon, but instead gets captured by American forces to use his powers for good. When Nazis return sixty years later, Hellboy and his elite super-powered defense team are humanity’s only hope!

VIDEO: Priest (2011)

After a centuries-long war between humans and vampires, the Church has assumed total control of humanity, with “priests” that are actually elite vampire slayers. Paul Bettany is a veteran priest living an unassuming life, but when vampires kidnap his niece (Lily Collins), he goes to hunt them down, bringing along Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet, and plenty of cool weapons.

VIDEO: Pink Lady's Great Motion Picture (1978) / Japanese Spider-Man (1978)

Mr. Mendo brings us twice the insanity from 1978 Japan: First up, it’s the one and only movie starring singing duo Pink Lady, where they help an alien creature escape the circus, and teleport back to the Old West. After that, it’s the Japanese Spider-Man, who gets his powers from a guy from the planet Spider, along with his very own giant robot sidekick!
