Not film documentaries, documentaries about films.  There is a difference; these are not your typical behind the scenes, how a movie is made kind of docs. 

These are about how some movies never got made like The Death of Superman Lives, Doomed, and Jodorowsky's Dune.  Or movies about how people interpret Kubrick's The Shining like Room 237. 

Plus many, many more.  Join Carlos today on GeekFest Rants as he explores all these excellent documentaries(about films).

Things are not going to go the way you think... Today on GeekFest Rants, this line from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will apply both to the kind of show we are uploading and to one of Carlos' favorite podcasts, Rebel Force Radio. 

On this episode we are doing an unexpected continuation to our previous Toxic Fandom episode.  This time we'll cover how Toxic Fandom and politics seeps into everyday personal relationships. 

How we are often disappointed by the media personalities we admire.  And even, how something as unifying as a top rated Star Wars podcast can divide the fan community due to their political and diversity/inclusively views.

There are good films, bad films, and Cult films.  Well, two out of three ain't bad.  Today on GeekFest Rants Carlos will look at the  Michael Mann WWII horror film, The Keep.  Even the greatest of film makers have a skeleton in their closet and this one might be it for Michael Mann.  Even with a superb cast like Scott Glenn, Gabriel Byrne, Jürgen Prochnow, and Ian McKellen, this one misses the mark.  But is there something good about it that we might want to take a second look at? 

Then we'll look at Star Trek toy ships.  From brands like Micro Machines, Furuta, Hallmark, Hot Wheels, and Eaglemoss.  So many choices, so little money.
