Media Montage Podcast 132: Robot Jox (1989)

It's a little bit Go Bots, it's a little bit Rocky 4! The Cold War heats up in this post-apocalyptic Cult Film where war is over and giant robots battle to settle international diputes. It's Robot Jox, from 1989 starring, Gary Graham, Anne-Marie Johnson, and Paul Koslo.  

At listener request (Thanks Nate O!) Bruce and Larry take a look at this film, and try to figure out if it's a kid's movie adults can enjoy or an adult movie kids can enjoy?

They look at the special effects, the script, what they liked and what they loathed. Is the stop motion animation up to snuff? Is it dated or does it hold up?  Was Robot Jox to late to exploit the Cold War? Why is a singular hot dog one of the high points of the movie? Find out the answers to those questions and more in Episode 132 of the Media Montage Podcast!
