    Hey, I just came over from your post on SQT’s blog so I haven’t had a chance to listen/subscribe yet.

    You called for bad/ugly skiffy movies. Try The Guyver (the live action, not the anime) with Mark Hamill. Definitely one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen, and I don’t say that lightly!

      Sweet! I saw that movie years and years ago. I remember liking it then, but I also liked a lot of stupid movies when I was a teenager. I’ll put it on the list and we’ll watch it to see if it holds up to my memory. I imagine it won’t.

      Thanks for the suggestion!

      Out of curiosity, I’m assuming you’re the same Todd from iTunes. If you’re willing, I suggest trying one of the later episodes, such as the interview with Jason Sanford (ep. #14). Ep. #1 was our first foray into things, and it’s rough for sure. Things get a little more coherent and ordered as we go along, and the hosting structure changed.

      And we’re still going to review The Guyver in a few weeks (probably ep. 17 or 18). Anywho.
