On this special Halloween episode of The Lunatic Fringe, Josh talks about a film from Tim Burton's so called "Golden Age". Beware the movie with no protagonist! The movie that's hates its characters with a passion! The movie... known as Mars Attacks!
This is not my Wonder Woman
“The great Wonder Woman, once a trippy, unique pulp sci-fi heroine, has been reduced to the generic Xena clone that Gal Gadot will apparently be playing onscreen. Because one warrior princess is the same as another, right?”X-Men 2 is not as good as you remember
“Maybe I hadn’t given Singer enough credit before, and X2 would be a lot better than I remember it being. It wasn’t. It was worse. Way worse.”10 Movies the Oscars Forgot in 2013
“Every year their choices are boring and predictable, and every year there are scores of deserving movies that get overlooked. So I thought instead of the usual routine, I would make a list of those movies instead.”What We Can Learn from The World’s End (2013)
“Suddenly, as the entire world starts imploding around them, Gary and his friends are confronted with the horrific realization of what they’ve done. They’ve saved the world from invaders, but at the cost of our way of life.”A dark, gritty Power Rangers spin-off?
