On this month’s episode, we’re traveling to the Antarctic to prevent a global epidemic from wiping out humanity in 2004’s science fiction thriller, Retrograde! In this time-traveling b-flick, Dolph Lundgren plays Captain John Foster, a genetically-enhanced soldier from 200 years in the future who travels back to 2004 to prevent said disaster. Joining me to chat this ambitious slice of sci-fi is Catherine Gonzales, editor and chief of Shuffle Online! Do the production values appropriately serve the ambition of the script and overall idea? What kinds of limitations were the director and everyone involved up against in production? Why is Gary Daniels in the film (and why is he wasted)? And what is with the film’s usage of motorcycle attire? Listen in as Catherine and I take on Dolph’s second foray into science fiction — Retrograde!
