In this episode of Geek Cinema Society, Brett Stewart, Nicole Davis, David Luzader, and their guest, Dominic Cichocki, delve into 1981’s ‘Heavy Metal.’ Based on the ‘Heavy Metal’ magazines, this R-rated animated epic explores manifest evil, dystopian futures, and excessive breasts. (Seriously, it’s basically a fourteen year old’s mind.) How does the film stack up today? Is it worth revisiting? What about the portrayal of the film’s female characters? Also, John Candy is here. The panel digs in and discusses it all!
For listeners who would like to follow along and treat Geek Cinema Society as a film club of sorts, we will be watching ‘Soylent Green’ next week! Following that, we’ll be watching ‘Predator.’
