Edge of Tomorrow aka Live Die Repeat (w/ Jonathan Liang)

All You Need is Kill!! At least that's the title I'm going with. We say words again and again and again in talking about this sci-fi marine reimagining of Groundhog's Day.

Star Trek: First Contact (w/ Rod Roddenberry)

Hey, if you wanna talk Trek, you can't do better than chatting with a Roddenberry. Especially when this is Rod's favorite Trek.

Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen

We get back to the corner of the sanctuary that has giant robots. The giant robots get Luke ranting about their awesomeness.

Enemy of the State (w/ Tom Secker)

Could we be watching you listening to us after watching this film? We brought in returning guest, Tom Secker of Spy Culture, to try and work this out.

Legend

Matt and Luke become Legends in the only way possible - by eating giant sausages and sitting down to watch this Tom Cruise/ Ridley Scott 80's fantasy jam.

Noah (w/ David Mathisen)

Make what you will of this Biblical movie, the point here is to get into star maps and the Flood with guest David Mathisen.

Star Trek Generations

What could be better than Kirk and Picard together on screen at last!?!? Turns out a lot of things can, but we still dig groovy into this passing of the Star Trek torch.

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (w/ John Champion)

Travel back with us to that halycon year 1979, or take the disco ball forward to the 25th century. It's all groovy hijinks on prime time NBC with one of the greatest space cowboys of them all.

Things to Come

One of Britain's first sci-fi films, released when H.G. Wells was still alive even. We see what things came.

Kong: Skull Island (w/ Jake Rockatansky)

We join Jake Rockatansky for a lighthearted chat about this fantastic monster romp, but end up getting political anyway.

The Creation of the Humanoids (w/ Ken Ammi)

Don't be fooled by the smell of early 1960's sci-fi cheeze - if you dig in you'll find concepts that are not just ahead of its time, but even ahead of Philip K. Dick.

Back to the Future Part II (w/ Taylor Morden)

We get into the next step of Marty McFly's time tripping - all those whiplash time currents that make up this pop culture bonanza. Hoverboards, Pepsi Perfects, and 1989 Trump impersonation fuel this time trip.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (w/ James Farley)

Continuing our trek through Trek this week. Aging actors, creepy mind violations, and knee nuts are among our deep dives for this final voyage of the original cast. Joining us is James Farley, a co-host from the Computer Game Show Podcast. Actual the second of those guys to head into the Sanctuary. You’ll find that podcast here and do dig around on the site for Star Calls, which should certainly resonate with our audience: https://tcgs.co/show/the-computer-game-show/ Please do like, subscribe, and rate on all the things like Facebook, Twitter, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube.

The Highlander (w/ Jonathan Melville)

Full disclosure - this film is not our geek niche, though we give full and due respect to that niche (at least until the sequel). In fact - this turned out to be Matt's first viewing of the film. So, to balance the scales, we've got a guest, Jonathan Meville, who has fully immersed himself in the making of this cult classic. He recently published a fantastic book, "A Kind of Magic: The Making of the Original HIghlander," on that very topic and you should hit up this US Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Kind-Magic-Making-Original-Highlander/dp/1913538052/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=melville+kind+of+magic&qid=1609577883&sr=8-1 Or this UK one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kind-Magic-Making-Original-Highlander/dp/1913538052/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=kind+of+magic+melville&qid=1609577988&sr=8-1 Please do like, subscribe, and rate on all the things like Facebook, Twitter, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube.

Le voyage dans la lune

"How about the space trip?" Space trip will be realized in the near future. As Apollo landed before for 30 years or more in the moon. you may do the mystical experience. We will offer a wonderful reception then. "Have a good trip!"

Starship Troopers (w/ Tom Secker)

Ending our monster month with a whole lot of them damn bugs. Gotta kill them all!! That or get into all the socio-facist implications of this under the radar satire, which is far more fun to do in podcast form. To get all this rolling on the right track, we have today's guest, Tom Secker. Tom is a British journalist who has written for Atlantic Today, The Independent, Newsweek, The Mirror, and the list goes on. His focus is a objective look at the military-industrial complex's influence on cinema and he co-wrote a fantastic book called "National Security Cinema," which focuses on that very thing.

"Yesterday's Enterprise" from Star Trek: TNG (w/ Eric Stillwell)

Christmas bonus for you!! It may be television, but it rates with any of the Trek films. And we can do this because it's chronologically before Star Trek VI. Even better, we've got one of the story writers, Eric Stilwell, on as a guest. Along with writing this, he served as a production assistant and script coordinator for TNG, so the man has some tales to tell.

Jingle All the Way (w/ Mark Malek)

Gimmie your Christmas!! You can say it's not sci-fi, but let's not forget Turbo Man, jetpacks, and the fact that Arnold Schwarzenegger exists is pretty sci-fi. Matt used to bum around on Christmas with guest Mark Malek while they both ignored their families, so he seemed like good fit here.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

While this is the most recent place to get your monster action - we're not sure it's the best. Nevertheless, there are quite a few monsters to discuss here. A bit of a weird one for us with Matt beaming in his end of the audio from the day room of a Japanese hospital - I guess that's fitting for a Godzilla flick.

It'll eventually be at this link, and there is no lack of sounds to explore in the meantime: https://rovingsagemedia.bandcamp.com/

Son of Kong

We're continuing our plunge into the monstrous this month with this medium sized monster - a Diddy Kong if you will. It's a weird mismash of 30's film styles which is strangely also a direct sequel to King Kong.

The Valley of Gwangi

We're kicking of our monster month at the Sci-fi Sanctuary with this one. It features those weird, off-brand, pre-Jurassic Park dinosaurs, but at least they've been animated by the legendary Ray Harryhausen. As an added side tangent, this is probably the closest we're going to get on covering "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."

The Truman Show (w/ Miguel Conner)

Lots of "metas" to wade through with Jim Carrey's first notable foray into a more dramatic role. We think a few Deep Thoughts, consider what it takes to make a satisfying life. and hold the film up to the mirror of Gnosticism. And who better to join us on that journey than writer, podcaster, and deep diver into all things Gnostic, Miguel Conner. You can continue that dive with him over at his Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio, found at this link: https://thegodabovegod.com/ Luke is getting back into talking about large monsters, and you will want to hear him here - especially if you are into Monster Hunter: https://gintendo-namer.squarespace.com/monster-mashAnd for more of the music you're hearing here, check out Matt's sounds over at: https://damagedtape.bandcamp.com/album/ambiguous-reality

When Worlds Collide

This one is a groundbreaking, early sci-fi feature - but it's also a mighty dry affair and serves up a heaping pile of 1950's weird racism. Matt and Luke try to unpack the ins and outs of this George Pal film about the end of the world.

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (w/ Scott Atkinson)

It's the Trek film so bad it's been effectively booted out of canon. But is it really that bad? Once we did our best to get past William Shatner's admittedly entertaining ego, we had a rollicking time and got into those deep questions about if we "need our pain," and "What does God need with a starship?" Joining us for the ride is Scott Atkinson, who you hear every week anyway on our intro. For more of his groove, check out this week's tunes from one of the many albums he's worked on with Matt: https://rovingsagemedia.bandcamp.com/album/atlantean-vibrational-sound Luke is getting back into talking about those larger monsters, and you will want to hear him here - especially if you are into Monster Hunter: https://gintendo-namer.squarespace.com/monster-mash

Terminator 2: Judgement Day

A year ago we watched Dark Fate, had a chat, and said we'd get back to it and T2 in a year's time. We stand by our word, homeslices. And here we are with T2 and the next major bullet point in our ongoing cavalcade of Arnold. Please do like, subscribe, and rate on all the things like Facebook, Twitter, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube.

The Thing (w/ Henrique Couto)

Here's the Thing. Like, literally - we're talking about the Thing. Y'know - for our spooky October. Luke has always seen it as a seminal sci-fi/horror, while Matt had been afraid to watch it, but now he loves it.Then there is Henrique Couto - director of spooky movies and narrator of spooky podcasts. He's got a fair amount to say about "The Thing," and if you need more, go here: http://hen.storenvy.com/Please do like, subscribe, and rate on all the things like Facebook, Twitter, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube.

Preview! Monster Mash Episode 89

What’s this? Luke’s other podcast, Monster Mash, is making its triumphant return? This is the comeback episode of Monster Mash, a podcast about the monsters from the Monster Hunter videogames. The podcast disappeared when Luke moved to Japan but it is back! It’s been slightly over two years but, energised by the announcement of Monster Hunter Rise we are podcasting about Hunting monsters again!This is a catch-up with the boys, their thoughts on Monster Hunter World two and a half years on and their speculations about the upcoming games and movie. Starting from next week, we’re picking right back up where we left off with a podcast about the Zorah Magdaros.

Re-Animator (w/ Andrew Shearer)

The Sci-fi Sanctuary is getting a couple weeks spooky for this Octoberfest starting with "Re-Animator."The Webster's Dictionary defines "re-animate" as to animate again. At least I assume it does - gI didn't actually check or anything. Also, Jeffery Combs.And Andrew Shearer. He basically replaces Luke in this one since Luke was busy trying to become bonafide in a Japanese gym when we recorded this. Anyway, Andrew likes this one enough to have commissioned a script read of it with an all-female cast for his birthday a few years ago.

The Fountain (w/ Von Galt)

We've got a metaphysical, Hugh Jackman-sized puzzle box this week for you to solve with your interdimensional mind. All that, and some ruminations on Buddhism to get your thunker thinking - or better yet, not thinking. Today, we will talk about the iconic movie, "The Fountain", with Buddhist author, Von Galt. Von's recently released book, "Buddhist Mandalas: Explore Parallel Realities with Sacred Geometry" goes over the science behind everyone's energy field, which she calls your "Merkabah" and how everyone is a soul having a human experience according to her research. We will discuss these spiritual concepts touched on in the movie, "The Fountain" with Von: What is a merkabah that souls have? What is the Eternal Game of Samsara, the Wheel of Dharma, Enso Gamers, and Nirvana?

In Time (w/ Ricky Varandas)

Gettin' your sexyback with JT in this high-concept sci-fi set in a dystopian world where everyone's time to live is literally ticking down own their forearms. Luckly, Matt, Luke, and guest Ricky had plenty of time to get into the details of this one. Especially the classic car details. Ricky Varandas is the host of the Ripple Effect podcast, which features long-form conversations with social, political, and cultural minds of all persuasions.
