Aye, Robot

Yes, Lousy Robot knows its songs sound happy. Yes, Lousy Robot knows they’re actually sad. Yes, Lousy Robot wants you to dance anyway.

Alien Opponent

The made-for-Chiller feature, reviewed in one line!

Judging by the stupidity of Alien Opponent, Roddy Piper has plenty of bubble gum. —Rod Lott

The robot uprising is Tulsa’s fault. A native of that city, Daniel H. Wilson penned the bestselling novel Robopocalypse last year, with movie rights selling to some guy named Steven Spielberg. Now, Wilson’s back with Amped, a techno-thriller of superhuman feats that he’s ready to sign, come 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 13, at Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 Northwest Expressway.

Karate-Robo Zaborgar

This one’s rightfully robo-cocked.


Rod Lott
Japan's Karate-Robo Zaborgar is a movie that has everything: a female cyborg girl with a detachable head and with missiles hidden in her metal bra, a samurai robot with enormous lips, a floating castle, a lactating man, multiple exploding footballs, a flying wheelchair powered by flatulence, and, lest we forget, sex tentacles.

Doomsday Book

The end of the world is two-thirds terrific.


Rod Lott
Not based on Connie Willis' seminal sci-fi novel of the same name, Doomsday Book is preoccupied not with time travel, but the world's end. Telling three separate stories, the Korean film comes from acclaimed directors Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel). As with all anthologies, results vary; ultimately, this one ends up as two-thirds great.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXV

For the 25th time, we’ve got Movie Sign!

Television series

Rod Lott
A noticeable difference exists with Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXV from Shout! Factory’s previous sets: This one is comparatively light on extras. However, that’s hardly a knock against it, because the show itself is just too damned good on its own.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXVI

The short review: Buy it already.

Television series

Rod Lott
I think the best way to review a box set of Mystery Science Theater 3000 would be to list all the references made by and/or targets of the Satellite of Love crew in those episodes, to demonstrate their true depth and breadth.

But that’d also be the worst, because we’d be here all day.

The Bowery Boys: Volume Two


Rod Lott
In the span of a decade, post-World War II, the comedy team known as The Bowery Boys (née The East Side Kids, née The Dead End Kids) made 48 movies. Up until now, I’d seen exactly zero of them.
