Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie. A silver screen lead-in to the show's fifth season, Turbo weaves a yarn of Lerigot helping Divatox revive Maligore.

Feeling more like a direct-to-video knock off of Willow, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie has our heroes trying to rescue creepy wizards from the cunning Divatox. There are some fun fight scenes here on a pirate ship and in a temple, but the meandering plot is too complicated. The long text scroll at the beginning of the movie doesn't help matters either. 

Mat thought Amy Poehler's feature debut Wine Country was a bit of a letdown. Gorgeous vistas and fun comedy don't mesh with a sharp turn to serious subplots near the end. He also liked Isn't It Romantic?, a Rebel Wilson romantic comedy spoof.

The Roon Games

May 18, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William T. Thrasher discuss The Roon Games, the 11th episode of the 1980s animated Star Wars: Droids series.

Admiral Screed gives Governer Koong one last chance to secure the Roonstones. Heroes and villains alike have to compete in the dangerous Roon Games for a chance at the prize.

A mostly uninspiring episode save for the Mudmen, this so-so story feels like a worse remake of A Race to the Finish. Admiral Screed looks as cool as ever.

Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)

May 18, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Battle for the Planet of the Apes. The Law Giver (John Huston) narrates a story about Caesar (Roddy McDowall) staving off waves of humanoid mutants.

A low budget affair, Battle for the Planet of the Apes never quite reaches the epic scope it's aiming for. There are ties to Beneath the Planet of the Apes with the whole mutant angle, but there's a real feeling everyone is going through the motions here.

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)

May 11, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. Caesar (Roddy McDowall), the lone surviving talking ape spawn from the future, leads a revolt of apes against their human masters.

A metaphoric rebuke to the prison system and police brutality, this is one of the stronger films in the original quintet. McDowall classes up his performance with several moving speeches, making Caesar into a much more stirring character than his milquetoast father Cornelius.

Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) (GUEST: Rich Handley Author of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes)

May 11, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, Jersey Jason and special guest Rich Handley (Author of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes and From Aldo to Zira: Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes) discuss Escape from the Planet of the Apes. Talking apes Cornelius (Roddy McDowall) and Zira (Kim Hunter) venture back to a 1973 Earth where they become pop culture darlings and hunted down.

A rollicking political satire, Escape from the Planet of the Apes meshes 1970s fashion with bon mots a plenty. Often absurd and surreal, this one works best after a few glasses of Grape Juice Plus.

Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)

May 11, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Brent (James Franciscus) crashes on a planet full of apes, mutants, and an atomic bomb. 

Initially a retread of the first film, things pick up considerably when the heroes venture underground to the weird mutant society. Containing one of the most audacious endings of all time, this darker sequel works only in fits and starts.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie (1995)

May 3, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Hitting the silver screen while the TV show was still on the air, this motion picture details the Power Rangers fighting against Ivan Ooze (Paul Freeman).

A nigh incomprehensible mess, this movie lumbers along with weak comedy straddling the tepid fight scenes. Some of the character designs are OK. A Godzilla homage near the end suffers from very poor special effects. Paul Freeman seems to be enjoying himself camping it up as Ivan Ooze.

Mat and Thrasher enjoy the large scope of the climactic battle in Avengers: Endgame. Mat laments how the Dune remake is not filming both of its parts back to back. He feels "Dune Part 1" is not going to have enough box office gross to merit "Dune Part 2". Mat is mixed on the recent Death Wish remake starring Bruce Willis, but enjoyed Vincent D'Onofrio's supporting role as the brother.

Tail of the Roon Comets

May 3, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William T. Thrasher discuss Tail of the Roon Comets, the 10th episode of Star Wars: Droids schedule.

After a pint in a cantina with their new master Mungo Baobab, R2-D2 and C-3PO head towards Roon to open a semi-legitimate trade route for Roonstones. Imperial Admiral Terrinald Screed and Governer Koong have different ideas.

A stellar episode, Tail of the Roon Comets has Stormtroopers, cute aliens, and explosions. In some ways a loose remake of Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope, this one hits all the right notes.

Planet of the Apes (1968)

May 3, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Planet of the Apes. Taylor (Charlton Heston) crashes on a planet full of apes. 

From its witty screenplay co-written by The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling to its Academy Award winning makeup, the original Planet of the Apes is a masterpiece. An odd choice to launch a franchise, this flick also spawned short-lived animated and live-action TV series.

Terminator Genisys (2015)

April 27, 2019

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Terminator Genisys. An aged version of the T-800 named Pops (Arnold Schwarzenegger) travels back in time to protect a young Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). John Connor (Jason Clarke) and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) are also sent back in time for completely different reasons. 

Terminator Genisys grabs its time travel aspect by the throat and runs in all sorts of loony directions. Too bad this film was meant to start a trilogy! We're stuck with a lot of setup and exposition with little pay off. Jai Courtney is OK as Kyle Reese, but Arnold Schwarzenegger seems more engaged as the T-800 than he's been in years. 

Thrasher and Mat discuss the short-lived Nintendo Virtual Boy console from the 1990s and how Jeremy Parish is reviewing every game for it released in the US. Mat thinks Ant-Man and the Wasp has a cleaner story than Ant-Man, but also is less creative.

Beyond Re-Animator (2003)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Beyond Re-Animator. Now in prison, Dr. West (Jeffrey Combs) improves his experiments on the dead with Nano-Plasmic Energy restoring more motor function than ever before. 

Adding an element of the prison break movie to the mix, Beyond Re-Animator works as a tense little tale. There is a fun bit of business with one of the inmate's pet rat.

This is the one episode of Sequelcast where Mat was unable to watch the movie before the show because Netflix was late in mailing the DVD.
