Win TURBO KID on DVD In Our Competition!

To celebrate the release of Turbo Kid – on digital download 28th September and DVD/Blu-ray 5th October – we have a copy on DVD to giveaway!

Set in a vision of the future, Turbo Kid will be instantly recognisable to anyone who spent a wasted youth in the video store – it’s a retro-adventure for the ages!

It’s packed with nods to 1980s pop culture (even down to Atari-style credits and its synth-tastic score) and riffs on the kids’ adventure movies such The Monster Squad and The Goonies.

With its crazy decapitations, disembowelments, and dismembered limbs, Turbo Kid follows in the footsteps of other hyper pastiche movies such as Wolfcop and Hobo With A Shotgun, with director Jason Eisener bringing his grindhouse touch as a producer!

Also on hand is legendary actor Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Starship Troopers), who brings some serious genre credentials to the movie and leads a cast of up-and-coming talent.

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!

  1. While initially it was a toss up Scanners and Total Recall, in the end I have to go with his perfectly straight delivery of “…they sucked his brains out” so the winner is Starship Troopers. Perfect.

  2. Top Gun as Jester, all iconic characters

  3. Got to be Scanners as Darryl Revok, one of the most iconic films of the 80’s

  4. Scanners

  5. scanners

  6. scanners

  7. I loved his character in E.R

  8. Total Recall. Such a good film and Richter is a great character. “See you at the party, Richter!”

  9. Scanners – nobody can explode a head like Michael.

  10. Scanners, it’s a legend.

  11. It has to be Starship Troopers. Not a starring role for Ironside, but the movie as a whole is a brilliant slab of sci-fi – a real cult classic.

  12. Killer image ….fab acting 🙂

  13. Scanners – mind blowing!

  14. Starship Troopers because he made a good captain in it and led his squad well.

  15. There is no better head-exploding film – Scanners!

  16. Top Gun – enough said really!

  17. ER as Doctor Wild Willy Swift

  18. Total Recall, what a great sci-fi film, a classic & one of Arnies best.

  19. Starship Troopers

  20. Total Recall – because it’s a classic and the bit where he punches Quaid in the face is genius

  21. It’s got to be Scanners – mainly because I love Cronenberg but, also, one of his earlier roles and his acting is spot on.

  22. Scanners was his most iconic role but kind of stereotyped him to portraying those type of slightly shady characters. I liked his role in SeaQuest 2032

  23. Total Recall., best sci fi film ever

  24. ironside is one of those great scenery chewers, never out of work. love him.

    i’m gonna go for watchers starring corey haim. it’s a really lame adaption of a koontz novel, and ironside is the bad-guy government agent. he starts off quite subtle for him, but as the film goes on he goes through every gear he has, ending up literally frothing at the mouth as he turns the crazy up to 11 for the finale.

    he probably only did about 3 days filming and he’s the only thing you remember about the film afterwards (the next best thing in the film after him is a guy with a laughably bad english accent). guys like him and jeffrey combs made careers out of making utter crap watchable.

  25. Has to be Total Recall!

  26. Total Recall, was just an amazing film for its time

  27. scanners – great film

  28. STARSHIP TROOPERS – fab character, great cult sci-fi movie

  29. Total Recall – fantastic role and Michael really made the most of it.

  30. Total Recall, don’t we all want it? Well, at exam times.

  31. starship troopers, loved the bug splatters

  32. Total Recall. It’s a great movie and he’s a great villain!

  33. Top Gun, iconic film with a great cast

  34. Scanners. Cronenberg and Ironside. Quite a combination.

  35. Has to be Total Recall …… Get ready for a surprise !

  36. He was great in V

  37. He did a cracking voiceover for Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell games, I instantly recognised it!!

  38. Top Gun – he was as dashing as the lead, smashing as Jester, authoritative and compassionate. Excellent actor with a great voice. I’m a fan!

  39. Total Recall the original movie. He played the baddie part really well.

  40. The Machinist – Although there are many films in which Michael Ironside has had much bigger roles, this is my favourite one featuring him as Christian Bale is engrossing and physically shocking as the guilt-ridden, paranoid insomniac whose life was falling apart.

  41. Total Recall, a weird but classic film.

  42. Starship Troopers – mainly for the excellent cast.

  43. So many to choose from as he’s a great actor, but for me, the now retro Total Recall as the character Richter, he absolutely owned that role, totally believable performance. His resume is impressive and a testament to the quality of his acting ability.

  44. He was Bob Brown in “THE PERFECT STORM” with George Clooney. Well acted and great casting.

  45. top gun – its a classic!

  46. Though he’s not one of the starring roles X-men first class. Either that or Scanners….. Love an exploding head!

  47. Total Recall – love the story, plot, actors, best scifi of its time!

  48. Visiting Hours from many year ago as though not a big film at all, I remember it being enjoyable at the time
