Voyage of the Geek #48 Krull

Here's another Voyage of the Geek webcast from the backlog of episodes with Rik  This episode we're looking at another 80's fantasy classic, Krull. Is the main female character little more than a cinematic version of Princess Peach, do lasers belong in a fantasy setting and does Gandalf have a less well known, only half as useful brother? Tune in as Dave, Dan and Tony discuss all this and more.


Voyage of the Geek #47 Red Sonya

As promised here's the next installment from my backlog of Voyage of the Geek appearances. This is a wee beauty as it's one of my all time favourite fantasy classics Red Sonya, based on the character created by Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan. Tune in to watch/listen to Dave, Dan and Tony poo poo all of one of my favourite films, and why open ceilings are a bad idea.


Voyage of the Geek Podcast-Justice League

Hidey Ho Webaroonies,

I've been very remiss in posting up the podcasts of Voyage of the Geek that I'm in, so there is a small backlog of fantastic podcasts covering sci-fi classics such as Red Sonya and Krull, which I will be drip feeding to the outside world via this blog over the next few weeks. This week however is Podcast #46 Justice League -Where we look at this more contemporary bit of cinema. You can catch Voyage of the Geek on Itunes, Sticher, Twitch and Youtube.
