Walking in Circles, now in its second production season, is about a misanthropic group of adventures who get in waaaaaay over their heads. Do you have a mental image of Legolas, Arwen, Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield and Gimli?  Good.  That gives you a frame of reference.  Because this lot is nothing at all like them.

The caption on the YouTube video we found reads “What happens when old school goes head to head with new school in a battle of speed and wits? Leonard Nimoy takes on newbie Zachary Quinto and his all-new Audi S7.”

Okay, yes, the car is cool. But frankly, all anybody’s going to remember is how much fun these two cultural icons have playing off one another in this epic Battle of the Spocks over who has the better car.

Enjoy.

Giggling-Jiggling Bears, Dancing Fish, and Danny DeVito. It’s a Dr. Seuss Movie Alright

By Staff Editor & Film Critic, PK.

If you’ve been following us on Facebook, then you undoubtedly have seen some of my posts. Pondering the question, are modern day 3-D movies worth all the hype I keep hearing about? Well, after taking perhaps a little too much cold-flu medicine and feeling my eyeballs vibrating out of my skull, I decided the logical course of action was to go see a movie. After bouncing out of my car at the theater, I stopped and read the signs carefully. Of all the movies I could see today, which one would appeal the most to a cynical, sarcastic, and slightly high, yet cranky radio editor. Ghost Rider : Spirit of Vengeance 3-D was available, but I thought, “nah”. I’m in pain already, that’s overkill even for someone who enjoys the occasional slap and tickle of a bad movie.

I admittedly have yet to see the new Ghost Rider movie, but it’s one of those rare sequels that gives off the ripe cheese odor straight from the previews. I’ve seen some of the old school 3-D’s using the headache inducing glasses with bright red and blue lenses. But life events and my being a cheapskate had prevented me from seeing a movie using the newer tech. Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax would be starting soon, and I thought it would be good to review a family movie for a change. I also want to extend my sympathies to the lady working the ticket booth, who was being mobbed by a small army of young girls ranging in ages from 5-14, and the parent/guardian of the group who was using the opportunity to teach them math problems while giving them money to buy their own tickets.

Finnish WW2 Science Fiction Dark Comedy “Iron Sky” to Hit Theaters April 4th

By Staff Editor Critic, PK

 

World War 2 is no laughing matter, unless you happen to be Finnish Director Timo Vuorensola and Producer Tero Kaukomaa, the makers of the new WW2 inspired science fiction dark comedy Iron Sky. Star Trek fans and dwellers of the net, may remember Vuorensola for his break out Trek parody sensation Star Wreck: The Pirkinning. In his new big budget project, Vuorensola introduces us to the idea of “what if Nazis’ had escaped into space just as Germany was losing the 2nd World War?”

I’ll admit that I wasn’t a fan of Star Wreck, it was impressive as far as the CGI used in it but you could tell it was more of a major fan project. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some fan work that far surpasses Hollywood’s attempts at film-making, but the acting made me shiver in pain a bit (although that could have been the point). That being said, after seeing some of the previews for this movie, I’ve gotta say that this looks like a 5-Star winner. Being a lover of science fiction and general weird and dark humor, I’m calling this a must see!.

In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.

When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States (Stephanie Paul), but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act!

Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.
