Enemy Mine (w/ Henrique Couto)

One of the deeper sci-fis of the 80's - whatever it lost in its disastrous box office is more than made up by awesomeness.

The Thing From Another World

Going O.G. with the monstrous aliens this week.

John Carter (w/ Gordon White)

Disney famously fumbled the ball on this one, but there is a lot to love in this space epic, and returning guest Gordon White's magically-minded analysis will likely uncover a few layers of metaphysical Martian soil that you may not have even known was there.

The Animatrix (w/ Jay Moyles)

The Wachowski's love for anime runs wild with this one. While it's a bit of a mixed bag, some of this is quite essential to wrapping your head around the Matrix.

The Matrix Resurrections

No better way to end your Matrix December with a new Matrix movie.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (w/ Andrew Shearer)

Strap in for a rollocking, sci-fi adventure starring Santa Claus... and Martians.

The Matrix Revolutions (w/ Mark Malek)

We admittedly did not get much into robots, kung-fu, and sick sci-fi explosions for our Reloaded episode, so we will proceed to do that now with Mark Malek.

The Matrix Reloaded (w/ Tilly Bridges)

The Wachowskis are well known for their real-life trans journey, and guest Tilly Bridges lays out how the Matrix movies have impressive depths of trans metaphor. This may be the rare case where you should listen to the podcast and then watch the movie.

The Matrix (re-post from March 2020)

We're starting a full month of Matrix, so why not revisit our March 2020 dive into the first film.

"Time Enough at Last" from Matt's "Time Enough Podcast"

Chasing that Twilight Zone movie episode with a visit to Matt's new podcast, "Time Enough Podcast: A Twilight Zone Podcast."

Twilight Zone: The Movie

Matt's getting a new Twilight Zone podcast rolling in December, so it seemed like a good time for the Sanctuary to enter the Twilight Zone.

Spider-Man: The Dragon's Challenge

We delve into the only real Spider-Man - 70's TV star Nicholas Hammond. Unless Japanese Spider-Man wants to contest that title in a duel.

La Jetee (from Matt's Aural Hygiene podcast)

Matt and frequent Sci-Fi Sanctuary guest Andrew Shearer get into this art film precursor to "12 Monkeys," which we covered last month in our regular feed.

What Dreams May Come (w/ Von Galt)

And we're back to the depressing Robin Williams films. But guest Von Galt is back to shine some light on that from the Buddhist perspective.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (w/ Richie Morgan)

Luke said we had to do this movie while Matt was 42 years old. Guest Richie Morgan showed up to make the podcast more interesting than just that.

Dune (2021)

We double down on Dune this year and take a trip to the theatre to see how its sandworm measures up.

The Evil Dead (w/ Stuart Gipp)

To cap off our Halloweenis, we chat up a whole lot about weenises (as well as a little about the Evil Dead) with guest Stuart Gipp.

Dawn of the Dead (w/ Andrew Shearer)

Andrew's dad insists you crack open a PBR and watch the best zombie movie ever.

No Time to Die

Matt and Luke finally give the Bond franchise some attention with Daniel Craig's last go-around as the super spy.

12 Monkeys (w/ Dr. Annie Kelley)

We get into this mid-90's flavor of a plague-ridden Doomsday with Annie Kelley, who knows more than a few things about viruses.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (w/ Henrique Couto)

Director Henrique Couto returns to lay down some straight-up Wes Craven knowledge on this 80's horror classic for our spooky October.

The Final Cut (w/ Ken Ammi)

A non-manic Robin Williams traverses a sci-fi world where some people are born with invasive devices that record their entire lives.

Soylent Green

Your intrepid duo sets out to discover what the ingredients of Soylent Green really are.

Rampage

Which of the four kaiju here came out on top: the giant gorilla, alligator, wolf, or the Rock?

Star Trek: Nemesis (w/ Dayton Ward)

A notorious belly-flop upon its released, how has the last of the old-school Trek films aged? We bring in prolific Trek novelist Dayton Ward to work it all out.

Monster Mash: Monster Hunter Legends of the Guild

An episode of sister podcast Monster Mash about the Netflix movie Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild

Lucy

Matt and Luke try to use, like, 100% of their brains, man. Even though that's not really a thing.

Godzilla vs. Kong

After endless delays (especially in Japan), we finally take a look at this current iteration of the epic tussle.

King Kong vs. Godzilla (w/ Sass Parilla the Singing Gorilla)

The year is 1962, and these two titans have their first meeting on the isle of Honshu. We're gonna need a singing gorilla for this one.

Fermat's Room (w/ Jason Parsley and Sarah Mason)

Matt and Luke, a couple of solid "C" math students, get schooled by proper mathematicians. Turns out none of us were actually familiar with this Spanish, math-based thriller beforehand, but it's a good 'un.
