Episode 095 - Invasion Planet Earth, Kill Mode, Booms and Blades, Crackerjack

January 27, 2020

This week, Mike and Rich tackle a couple of sci-fi movies. First up is INVASION PLANET EARTH, which takes the Independence Day premise and it delivers a very British take on the genre and on a much smaller budget! Then we have KILL MODE, from the Netherlands, who it turns out are not lacking in a bit of spectacle.

Our short shot this week is BOOMS and BLADES by Godefroy Ryckewaert - if you like what you see, be sure to check out his many other shorts.

Finally in our DTV THROWBACK section we take a look at CRACKERJACK, starring Thomas Ian Griffith and Christopher Plummer. Although I'd enjoyed some of Griffith's other films, I'd never seen this one - take a listen to hear what I thought of this "Die Hard in a Ski Resort"!

Enjoy the show!

PS - Kill Mode, it turns out, is a prequel to an earlier film called MOLLY (2017)- if this ever becomes available in the UK we'd love to check it out!
