FPS 108 - Caravan of Courage http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/film-philosophy-show/fps-season-1/item/80-ep-108-caravan-of-courage http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/film-philosophy-show/fps-season-1/item/80-ep-108-caravan-of-courage FPS 108 - Caravan of Courage

In this, the "long lost" Season 2 Finale, Al proves that he can actually count higher than 7, answers an age-old question that has plagued fanboys for years, and makes some very timely Christmas jokes (remarkable, considering this was shot in April). Long ago in an apartment far, far away, let's watch the OTHER infamous TV Star Wars movie: 1984's "Caravan of Courage."

The Film Philosophy Show returns to the realm of direct-to-DVD independent fare, this time with a piece from an ambitious young UK director.

Costumed heroes are nothing new, but every country has its own take on the concept. So, how does the Japanese version of Superman represent the society he came from? And what does any of this have to do with Power Rangers? Alex uncovers the secrets of the universe with a 1965 adaptation of a tokusatsu classic, "Attack from Space."

Action movies are basically just big, dumb entertainment, but is it possible for a movie's dumbness to handicap how big it gets? Alex checks under the hood of 1987's "Twister's Revenge" to find out.

The Film Philosophy Show tackles a production from infamous Hong Kong director Godfrey Ho, the man who saw a film containing kidnapping, UFOs, and a horde of vampires and said "you know what this story needs? NINJAS." Alex puzzles out what makes martial arts good entertainment for children, with 1991's "Thunder Ninja Kids: Hunt for the Devil Boxer."

Alex digs up a relic from the '50s (or is it the '70s?) with a different kind of crossover movie. What happens when you combine two lame monster movies into a single film? Unwrap the truth and learn the hairy details with 1978's "Curse of Bigfoot."

Film Philosophy continues with its first movie from the 21st century! Can a cast and crew of amateurs in some guy's basement pull off an appealing action extravaganza, or will their shoestring budget suck the life from the story? Alex weighs the strengths and weaknesses of home-made cinema with the highly unusual 2007 vampire epic, "Abe's Tomb." Produced, edited, written, and hosted by Alex Lane.
