Android (1982) Video Store Action Heroes 4 x Action Packed Sci-Fi VHS Movie Memories

android (1983) 1982 poster robot sci-fi movie

Android had a tough journey to enter into my temporal lobe. Standing reading the VHS cover, it had excited this young Mikey with a saucy looking space romp. Sure to be boobs, some spaceships and going on the title it had to have an android. Yep I was ready for this. Handing over the empty cassette box to the guy behind the counter I waited for “are you old enough for this?“! A big smile, it didn’t come. To be honest I was quite tall and I’m sure the bored looking guy in the rental shop really didn’t care. Continue reading

Had to fit in the 50’s science fiction classic This Island Earth. As a teenager I was always fascinated by this films incredible imagination. What was the mystery of why these big headed aliens were sneakily kidnapping nuclear scientists? What was their purpose? And before you knew it this wide-eyed wolf-boy was taken on a kind of road movie throughout the stars with added giant alien bug thrown in for good measure.

wolfman science fiction movie blog-2

Well flying through the galaxies needs a soundtrack. As I blast off ready to explore the universe you are welcome to join me as we watch distant comets transcend through the Milky Way. Drift through interstellar clouds of nebula’s and wonder at the growing supernova of Betelgeuse. Imagining watching C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate through Roy Batty’s eyes.

Not of This Earth (1957) Roger Corman’s Alien Blood Stealing Travelling Salesman

Nothing shows fear quite like a man with a suitcase and a pair of shades. I kid you not, it maybe the ultimate in cheap alien costume but it’s surprisingly effective. Who better to bring the best out of a B-movies microscopic budget than that man, Roger Corman. Not Of This Earth was a pure delight, not only had I never seen it but I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did.

Phase IV (1974) Saul Bass Intelligent Killer Ant Attack

phase-iv-1074-poster

What better film to follow up Them on a double bill than with another bunch of crazed, demented six legged psychopathic ant nut jobs, the 1974 film Phase IV. This feature is filled with visually luscious images and gorgeous landscape design, it’s quite the wonder to look at. But please be forewarned that you spend the runtime scratching like a shaggy dog. Oh my fur was twitching and an itching like crazy right through this creepy crawly movie. Even the eerie music gets under the skin. Essential item to have with you whilst watching is a personal back scratcher or two, down a bit, ooo to left a bit ooo that’s it, that’s the spot. A big thanks goes out to Lieutenant’s Nina Barry and Gay Ellis from UFO in helping me with my itching, you did a grand job…. Continue reading

Space Seed (1967) Into The Wrath Of Khan (1982) A Star Trek Double Bill

Star Trek Space Seed The Wrath Of Khan Botany Bay USS Enterprise title

Sometime during the 1990’s the Eugenics Wars had torn much of Earth apart. What with scientific gains in DNA mapping and experiments in cloning causing upheaval across the nations. The experiments had created a more advanced human, physically stronger with heightened learning abilities. In fact the characteristics were more than the scientists expected. They had helped create a human with more drive, determination and ego. All the ingredients needed for conquerors, tyrants and military tacticians. Continue reading

The Blood of Heroes (1989) Rutger Hauer’s Battle Cry Salute To The Jugger

The Blood Of Heroes (1989) Rutger Hauer Joan Chen video VHS cassette box tape cover

In a world ravished by nuclear war, the barren, sorry looking landscape of Earth has taken on that familiar look of a post-apocalyptic Mad Max. Scattered little pockets of civilisation can be found around the desolate, desert terrain. The small market-towns are called dog-towns, where desperate people scavenge and scrounge for food scraps. On the fringe, the shanty towns of rubbish and recycled waste are forged into makeshift living spaces. The food consists of what tough vegetation is hardy enough to grow and whatever meat that can be found. Rats are high on the list but you sure get more meat on the bones of a dog! Besides the dog kind of comes in handy for past-time entertainment! Continue reading

It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) It Breathes. It Hunts. It Kills!

It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) alien b-movie sci-fi poster art work

Yeah I was only 2 at the time but you would of thought Mankind landing on Mars in 1973 would of made a significant mark on the history books! I guess what with the end of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal in full swing that a crew of 10 landing on the red planet 54 million kilometers away, just ain’t all that newsworthy!

I bet it was down to the Science Advisory Committee Division Of Interplanetary Exploration covering up the facts. They didn’t want the first successful mission to Mars to be surrounded by….. murder! Continue reading

Our Blade Runner – The Final Cut Secret Cinema Experience

blade runner final cut secret cinema

Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is one of my and many’s favourite movies, it perfectly features everything I love within a science fiction film. To say I was excited hearing the news that Secret Cinema was not only going to show the Final Cut but were actually going to recreate the over-populated dystopian futuristic city of Los Angeles in the year 2019. It all sent me into pure ecstatic buzz mode, making me as giddy as a drunken man. I just had to book, by hook or crook and get myself Off-World and immersed into this ultimate movie going experience.

Spoiler Alert – If you are booked to go before the last showing in July then please don’t read any further, just turn up and enjoy the wonders that will behold you.  Trust me, you will be astonished.
