Retro Superplex 52 – #GLORIOUSBOMB

Cedric Alexander poses in his wrestling gearMartin and Justin return with their wrestling-themed episode and it is GLORIOUS! They talk a little about goings on on the main WWE shows including the continued horrendous booking of poor Becky Lynch, but this is an NXT-dominated episode. Justin recounts his experiences at an NXT house show, running down the matches and talking about how much fun he had. Then the guys go ape shit for Bobby Roode and his GLORIOUS entrance music! It’s truly wonderful, so wonderful in fact that Tomasso Champa and Johnny Gargano started the #GLORIOUSBOMB which is just fantastic. NXT had some fun stuff on there too like poor Asuka falling off her heels, women’s action, and Samoa Joe being the best heel champ in WWE for ages. Also, the CruiserWeight Classic is AWESOME and if you’re not watching it you’re letting yourself down. Cedric Alexander and Kota Ibushi have one of the matches of the year which made them both huge stars. Also an update on the upcoming CHIKARA show Nobody’s First, and You’re Next!

Cinemosity 127 – Princess From the Moon

Batman-The-Killing-Joke-2016All sorts of news this week! Bow Wow says stupid stuff because he’s desperate for attention, then Katt Williams has been arrested AGAIN. Get well Katt, go get some help dude. Miss Cleo has sadly passed at the age of 51, our condolences to her loved ones. Rudy’s marriage is over after only 8 months with her husband demanding a paternity test for her unborn child, this one sounds fishy. Then among other things includes early word on Kevin Smith’s new movie (it’s awful) and there’s a good discussion about the latest DC animated film THE KILLING JOKE. The animated version includes more character development for Batgirl, mostly that she because Batgirl because she wanted to have sex with Batman. Ew.

Our movie is Toho’s PRINCESS FROM THE MOON which is available as part of the Criterion Collection. It is a very gentle, sweet little fantasy movie suitable for the whole family! Based on a popular Japanese folk tale it was also the source for Studio Ghibli’s Princess Kaguya and Princess From the Moon certainly feels like a live action Ghibli movie in some ways with some Close Encounters of the Third Time thrown in there. It’s on Hulu.

Next week our movie is Sisterhood of the Night which tells the story of a modern day witch hunt in a small American town after a girl alleges being attacked by a coven of young women. It’s on Netflix so check it out!

Retro Superplex 49 – Dolph Ziggler?

zigglerMartin and Justin are back! This is a big ol’ catchup episode as the guys try to hit all the pro rasslin’ points that they want to get to. There’s a lot of chat about the Cruiser Weight Classic and how fantastic it is including all kinds of great competitors, some really green ones, a different presentation and a lot of different wrestling styles than what we come to expect on a WWE show. Talk then turns to the brand split and the fallout that came the following week. Who are the big winners and losers? Will Finn Balor flourish as the new golden boy? Dolph Ziggler? How many more ways will WWE try to make Roman Reigns an over babyface? Dolph Ziggler tho?

ALSO, news on RETRO SUPERPLEX LIVE coming to you from the Amalgam Comic and Coffeeshop in Philadelphia on August 20th at 5PM! JUSTIN WILL BE THERE thanks to some very, very kind supporters and the guests are confirmed! From CHIKARA we have the master of Gecko Roman Wrestling, ARGUS! Joining him is a CHIKARA veteran, one of the best workers in the company and now a teacher at the Chikara Wrestle Factory, the slithering OPHIDIAN! With a post-show meet ‘n’ greet you really should come on down and be a part of this great event!

Retro Superplex 48 – NeuroVoider Interview!

A robot in an icy environment explodes a squad of smaller enemiesWe said we would make it happen and it did! We have company again this time being joined by indie developer Thomas “MrHelmut” Altenburger of Flying Oak Games! Thomas is the coder in this two man development team based out of the North East of France as again it is ACCENTMANIA when three different accents collide! Thomas talks about how Flying Oak Games came to be, their early titles and how NeuroVoider came to be. We go into the look and feel of the game, the deep and entertaining loot system and their excellent use of Steam’s Early Access platform to put out a huge amount of updates and the constant influx of feedback the system affords. Also, how easy is it to program for multiple formats now that the PS4 and Xbox One have PC-style hardware? This is some great insight from a very generous guest, please check out the links below and support Thomas by checking out NeuroVoider!

The main characters flank John Connor who is shown as a Terminator because EVEN THE POSTER GAVE AWAY PLOT TWISTS IN THIS STUPID MOVIE

Cinemosity126 – Terminator Genisys

Pop star Taylor Swift cryingTaylor Swift and Terminator fans beware, it’s a very long Cinemosity! Of course as we have been saying for months, Taylor Swift is a liar, a faker, a perpetual whiner who pretends everybody is out to get her in order to win her support from her gullible fans. She’s a rotten, spoiled brat who fills her music with personal shots on people she’s had relationships with and then turns around and cries about her victimization. So we have a good time with that. There’s also talk of the dreadful treatment of Leslie Jones on Twitter and the sloooooowwwwww reaction to defend her, and they’re remaking Cooley High? The fuck?

This show is long because our film this week was TERMINATOR GENISYS which takes such a gigantic, steaming dump on an already beleaguered franchise. Martin was in need of a good cathartic rant so look out for an hour plus of him tearing this movie to shreds. We spoil it but that’s okay because the movie poster gives away a major plot spoiler. THE POSTER. Terminator Genisys is probably THE worst reboot/sequel perhaps ever. No, definitely ever. Don’t watch it.

Our next movie is part of the Criterion Collection and is available to stream on Hulu Plus. It’s a Japanese sci-fi movie from 1987 called PRINCESS FROM THE MOON! It won three Japanese Oscars and Toshiro Mifune is in a supporting role!

Retro Superplex 47 – Goddammit Capcom

An image of Santamu, one of Bison's dolls who is African so she has a goddamn spear and a pet monkey! UGHMartin and Justin are back with a bevy of topics. First up is EVO 2016, the largest fighting game tournament EVER. With five thousand entrants for Street Fighter V alone it somewhat validates the decision Capcom made to go ahead and release the game with features missing in order to make sure it was being played on the tournament scene. Other moments in games like Super Smash Bros. Melee and Killer Instinct were also full of amazing moments which are well worth looking for on Youtube. Check out the video after the break featuring one of Martin’s favorite battles from the whole event, The BEAST Daigo vs. Tokido in an epic Ryu vs Ryu encounter.

Unfortunately Capcom are on the shitlist too for the ridiculously expensive CPT community DLC pack and Martin just discovered that one of Bison’s Dolls is literally an African girl who fights with a spear. Really.

Also on the show, some thoughts on the Draft (this was recorded on Monday) and looks at another underwhelming Lucha Underground and a pretty entertaining first episode of The Cruiserweight Wrestling Classic.

Next episode is an interview with Thomas AKA “MrHelmut” of Flying Oak Games whose latest indie game NEUROVOIDER is currently on Steam Early Access.

Cinemosity 125 – Return of the Living Dead

Late but GREAT! It’s Cinemosity! The Emmy’s gave us a really nicely diverse series of nominations and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the highest paid actor in the world, yay successful brown people! We wish Richard Williams well after his stroke and praise him for helping to produce two of the greatest athletes of our time. Check out Richard chewing out an interviewer after the break! Also, Wendy Williams said some incredibly ignorant things on her garbage TV show and we discuss what an ill-informed, muck-raking idiot she is. Our movie is the classic zombie comedy RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Directed by Dan O’Bannon, best known for writing the original ALIEN, it is a relentless zombie massacre with a deep crease of very dark humor. If you haven’t seen this gem of the zombie genre check it out, especially if you grab the new Scream Factory Blu-ray looks gorgeous!

We’ll be back shortly with TERMINATOR: GENISYS and Martin goes in HARD on that one so stay tuned!

Retro Superplex 46 – New Founding Fathers

A varied show of goodness for you this week! Double Impact features such amazing new features as a Pepsi taste test, Pokemon Go and another piece of video game history emerges! Martin was also lucky enough to see an early screening of the upcoming horror film LIGHTS OUT and as a discerning lover of genre film he had a thing or two to say about it! Also talk of horror leads into a conversation about THE PURGE TRILOGY and their villains The New Founding Fathers. Is writer/director James DeMonaco getting increasingly desperate about trying to get his political message across? Also, in case you missed it RETRO SUPERPLEX LIVE IS HAPPENING! Be there or be…. somewhere else!

The New Founding Fathers… that would make a great name for… something…

Dr.Wagner Jr. has his way with Son of Havoc

Retro Superplex 45 – Delightful Opportunity

It’s pro rasslin’ talk on Retro Superplex! There’s a little bit more talk about THE FINAL DELETION and we make some old-school wrestler comparisons with current WWE stars. A large chunk of the show concerns Lucha Underground and their Ultima Lucha Dos-themed shows and what a letdown the “Unique Opportunity” episode was. Sacrificing a whole show of build to bring in Dr. Wagner Jr? The hell? Is this a sign of what’s to come with the rest of Ultima Lucha? Also, news about RETRO SUPERPLEX LIVE!
We’ll be back Thursday which will include Martin talking about upcoming horror film LIGHTS OUT! Thanks for listening and check out the videos after the break!

Broken Matt Hardy rides a lawn mower and poses in triumph

Retro Superplex 44 – THE FINAL DELETION!

It happened, it actually happened. TNA wrestling, the Hardy brothers and Jeremy Borash managed to do the impossible. They truly captured lightning in a bottle with the incredible BROTHER NERO video with it’s ludicrous performances and unchained insanity. There’s no way it could ever be topped. Or so we thought! Somehow they topped it with THE FINAL DELETION (watch it after the break if you haven’t seen it yet). THE FINAL DELETION involved a squadron of attack quad copters, destruction of lawns, some of the most demented acting ever seen in wrestling, a terrible wrestling match, a DILAPIDATED BOAT and so much more! Watch the video and then listen to Justin and Martin revel in its greatness!

Also on the show, EVO 2016 boasts an insane amount of registrants for their weekend of fighting game greatness starting July 15th. Plus, scumbags on Youtube get outed as owning a website that allows children to gamble in a way that online PC game service Steam allows to happen. Steam is seriously broken and is facing a class action lawsuit. Also, Scream Factory has announced a director’s cut release of THE EXORCIST III, hear why Martin is so thrilled about this.

Thanks for listening, we’ll be back with two more shows next week NXT, Lucha Underground, and a very special guest in pro wrestler KimberLee!

Heath Slater receives a double chokeslam through a table during a food fight on WWE Raw. Even in backstage skits a Social Outcast still has to do the job.

Retro Superplex 43 – Suicide Dive


An animated gif of WWE wrestler Dean Ambrose performing the laziest suicide dive I have ever seen.Justin and a sleepy Martin bring you opinion on what’s happening in wrestling right now, which honestly isn’t a whole lot. WWE is in a holding pattern until the brand split and also seemingly until that idiot Roman Reigns comes back from suspension. So Raw was really boring this week and Martin continues his personal vendetta against Dean Ambrose by talking about Dean’s absurdly lazy suicide dive that nobody cares about but him. There’s also some chat about the incredibly long career of Dustin Rhodes and how despite some horrible gimmicks he’s still kicking, it’s really quite remarkable. Martin also recommends a Chikara show and announces that next week Retro Superplex they will be joined by KimblerLee of Chikara, Shimmer and more! That’s going to be awesome! Thanks for listening!

Retro Superplex 42 – Not So Mighty

A packed episode of Double Impact this week! There’s a little follow-up from E3 including Microsoft backtracking on promises almost as quickly as Brexit supporters and some speculation and news on why there was no NX from Nintendo at the show.

The main topic of the show is the game MIGHTY NO.9, a slow-motion trainwreck of a video game where the problems started during the campaign and still have not ended. Martin and Justin run down the creation of the project, the delays, the broken promises, the backlash before release, the even bigger backlash post-release, and just what the hell went wrong here? They talk about why they think things went the way they did, talk about some of the key players in the whole debacle, but perhaps more importantly assure you that not all crowdfunding campaigns end up this way. There is still hope for independent development with crowdfunding being a key part in that! Don’t give up hope quite yet!

The cast of Cold Prey looking wary of the impending danger

Cinemosity 124 – Cold Prey

So the BET Awards happening this past weekend, including the highly anticipated Prince tribute. Did they live up to the hype? Did Beyonce win everything? Will Nicki Minaj be dead in the ground and still winning “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist”? Also, Jesse Williams delivered a truly amazing speech and so it wasn’t going to be long before some famous dipshit was going to try and include himself in the adulation. This week’s dipshit? Why, it’s Justin Timberlake! Truly, what a dipshit.

Then in movie news, Independence Day: Resurgence bombs in the US. Warcraft was one thing but the movie named after an American holiday? Wow. There’s a little discussion about how Roland Emmerich somehow continues to fail upwards despite his best days being looooooooong behind him. Plus, the director of Keanu took to Twitter to blame the emphasis on the titular kitten in the marketing for why it failed. Then deletes said tweets, forgetting that screenshots are a thing. Oops! There’s also an extended chat about James Wan’s The Conjuring 2, it’s really bloody good.

Our movie this week is the Wintry Norwegian slasher COLD PREY, a smart little horror film that actually kinda gets the slasher formula right and isn’t just the usual slashathon through of worthless characters. SHAME on Hulu for only having it dubbed, luckily it’s on Youtube with great, big subtitles. Check it out it’s pretty neat! Thanks for listening!
