Three Cylinder Stardrive

A Glass Spaceship

An episode of Three Cylinder Stardrive

By Roger Colby and Richard Kutz
Roger Colby, science fiction novelist and Richard Kutz, pop culture expert and fanboy deluxe, take you on a raucous journey as they review current pop culture/science fiction topics. Join them for discussions about current science fiction books, shows and video games and laugh along with them as they review most everything fanboy. Each week they will also pick out the "Movie of the Week" for you to watch (or don't watch).
Marvel at the Captive State
We reviewed Captain Marvel, discussed its many twists and turns and its handshake with the rest of the Marvel universe.  We also saw "Captive State" which basically became our "Movie of the Week".  Find out why by tuning in!

We Saw Fred Armisten!
Richard and I went to Tulsa town to see Fred Armisten's "Comedy for Musicians but Everyone Else Is Welcome" show.  We detail how we saw Fred Armisten on the sidewalk outside the venue and many of the funny things that Armisten talked about.  Our retro pilot of the week is "Laser Vision and Jack" a failed Jack Black pilot co-starring Owen Wilson as a talking motorcycle.

Build a New You with Legos
On this episode, Richard reviews "Lego Movie 2" (because Roger didn't have time to see it due to stuff and things) and then we talk about the shows we are enjoying right now and why you should watch them.  Also, our movie of the week is a lovely Blumhouse gem on Hulu called "New Year, New You".  It's a twisty-turny horror film that just takes the premise of "Mean Girls" to it's logical conclusion... if it were directed by a horror director.

February 18, 2019
Wyvern?! Whyyyyyy?!
We devoted an entire episode to our Movie of the Week: "Wyvern" (2009).  It was Don S. Davis's last performance in a film, but we are really scratching our heads over this one.  Tune in and listen to us discuss this amazingly horrible dragon film.  ... or is it a Drake?  ... Or is it a Wyrm.  Not sure because the CGI was so bad.

The Punisher Looks Well
We finally finished "The Punisher" season 2 on Netflix.  We provide (as always) a spoiler-free review of it.  What we are more excited about is finding this week's "Retro Pilot Review".  It's a little show that never made it past the pilot, but was written by Conan O'Brien and Robert Smeigel, starring none other than Adam West.  1991's gem of a comedy series pilot: "Lookwell!"

Aquabro Predicts the Future
We've been away for a while, mainly due to illness, but we've returned to finally review "Aquaman".  We also talk for a bit about films and television that we loved and hated last year.  We also discuss films and television that we are looking forward to viewing and reviewing this year.

Christmas Special 2018
Merry Christmas, true believers!  On this episode we watched three of the worst Christmas specials ever so that you don't have to.  We recommend one of them, though, for the sheer unintentional laugh-factor it produces.  'Cause after all, you need some Christmas cheer.
