Podcast: Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983)

Molly Ringwald and Ernie Hudson (a.k.a. the black Ghostbuster) star in this 1980s 3-D Star Wars ripoff bonanza, about a Han Solo type (Peter Strauss) who travels to a desert planet to save some hot earth women from the lecherous Overdog (Michael Ironside). What is absent is a significant amount of hunting in space, and we're not entirely sure how forbidden this zone is. Produced by Ivan Reitman and part of the resurgence of crappy 3-D movies in the early 80s with incredibly long names.

Some liner notes on the episode:
  • All you ever wanted to know about Keira Knightley's jaw.
  • Ernie Hudson is a class act and will politely talk over rollergirls during poorly-organized Q&As.
  • SEX & NUDITY: "Overdog" character is lecherous when presented with attractive females.
  • Michael Ironside is NOT his real name, but not in the way we thought. He was born Frederick Reginald Ironside.
