Gremlins on the Wing? Find Out in SHADOW IN THE CLOUD January 1st

SHADOW IN THE CLOUD movie poster

We've been watching Chloe Grace Moretz for most of her life and are always happy to do so again, but when her newest project is co-written by Max Landis (World War Z), we sit straight up and start the googling! 

"In the throes of World War II, Captain Maude Garrett (CHLOƋ GRACE MORETZ) joins the all-male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude’s every move. Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear…lurking in the shadows, something sinister is tearing at the heart of the plane. Trapped between an oncoming air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push beyond her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo."


As the longest year of the 2000s winds to an end, we salute the greatest fallen hero of the previous millennium: Optimus Prime. Artist Oliver Barrett depicts the steel-hearted warrior bloodied but unbowed, eyes fixed to the future just as they were in his emotional final moments in 1986's THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE.

Both the Regular and Variant edition available Tuesday 12/22 at 11am Central on The Drop.

Psycho Goreman Movie Poster

Siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord who was entombed on Earth millions of years ago after a failed attempt to destroy the universe. They nickname the evil creature Psycho Goreman (or PG for short) and use the magical amulet they discovered to force him to obey their childish whims. It isn’t long before PG’s reappearance draws the attention of intergalactic friends and foes from across the cosmos and a rogues’ gallery of alien combatants converges in small-town suburbia to battle for the fate of the galaxy.

Hallmark 2020 Holiday Ornaments Back to the Future
Back into your geekiest of holiday shopping suggestions, this time with Hallmark! One of the most fun things to do every year is to hit a Hallmark store when the yearly ornament display is up and press all the buttons. Button pressing is a very acceptable date option, just FYI. The best ornament I ever clicked was Beaker from The Muppets who sang in his Beaker voice and moved his tiny bottom lip. Amazing. This year's offerings covered a wide spectrum of our movies, TV, cartoons and comic books. Among the hefty catalog of products, Hallmark picked three they thought you'd love...

Iggy and the Stooges "From KO to Chaos"

Iggy and the Stooges "From KO to Chaos"
When the riotous, confrontational 'last ever' Iggy & the Stooges gig Metallic KO was issued in 1976 on the French indie Skydog label, it heralded the punk movement and cemented Iggy's position in it. Iggy’s career then took off, and a lengthy liaison between Skydog and Iggy Pop continued, with releases through and beyond the Stooges reunion 29 years later.

Here are all of the Skydog label's Iggy releases, remastered, in a clam-shell box set containing seven CDs and a DVD – a fitting tribute to the label’s punk pioneer boss Marc Zermati, who passed away in June. Marc started Skydog in 1973, arguably Europe’s first independent rock label, and in the same year that Metallic KO was released he organized the "First Punk Festival" in Mont de Marsan. He worked closely with The Clash, Johnny Thunders, Wilko Johnson, and Chrissie Hynde and many others.
