Episode 38.5 - Way Too Young

February 1, 2018

They've mentioned it quite a few times but this week sees Nathan and Brendan really dig into the movies that they were definitely too young to watch as children but did anyway.

They also hear some similar tales involving sexually explicit Sharon Stone films, the glorious violence of "Scarface," the not-so-consensual nature of "Revenge of the Nerds" and much more.

Nathan and Brendan also reveal their next movie involving a good ol' fashioned love story... and a pick axe.

Episode 38 - Tammy and the T-Rex (w/Kaleigh Stultz and Steve & Izzy from “Everything I Learned from Movies”)

January 25, 2018

It's quite possibly the most cuckoo bananas movie that Nathan and Brendan have ever covered so luckily they had some help along the way in the form of Kaleigh Stultz as well as Steve & Izzy from the great podcast "Everything I Learned from Movies."

The five (!) of them talk about all sorts of things in this crazy film from the honour-system zoo that exists in California, dickfights, corpses being rolled up like shag carpet, brains in punch bowls, clever names like Sheriff Black (an African-American police officer) and Billy Bad (one of the villains) and so much more (and we didn't even mention the T-Rex itself there so we're talking A LOT more)! Plus: In the spirit of two of our guests, Nathan does his own beer review.

Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered.

January 18, 2018

Another awesome guest!

Nathan and Brendan got to chat with actress Kelli Maroney perhaps most well-known for the soap opera "Ryan's Hope" and films like "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "Chopping Mall" and "Night of the Comet" just to name a few. Kelli talked about getting started in the business as a result of a very strong relationship with her mother, one of her movies that almost never saw the light of day, one of her iconic characters that was almost killed off, the difficulties with killer robots, a very unique female co-star named Dolores and much, much more.

Nathan and Brendan also revealed their next movie involving half-shirts and pure, unbridled insanity.

January 11, 2018

The first new episode of 2018 sees Nathan and Brendan bring on resident turtles expert Dame Malcolm Wallace to talk about the racially sensitive "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III."

The boys have a lot to talk about including the wild inconsistencies regarding the space-time continuum, turtle genitalia, Elias Koteas inexplicably playing two unrelated roles, villains that suddenly get a weakness introduced in the final third of the film and... just why in the hell is EVERYONE speaking English?

RETRO: The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

January 4, 2018

It's an off-week for us due to the hectic nature of the holidays so we're diving into the archives to bring you an episode you may have missed the first time we aired it - The Garbage Pail Kids Movie!

Nathan & Brendan dive head-first into a terrifying nightmare world featuring the scariest-looking "children" that have ever graced the silver screen. They discuss everything in this film - the adult bullies, the lack of age difference between the two leads, the State Home for the Ugly, the very suggestive sexual nature of Greg the Greaser and much, much more.

Also: They discover some other rather unsavoury Garbage Pail Kid characters that were (thankfully) not used in the movie.

NEXT WEEK: We return live with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III!

Episode 36 - Silent Night, Deadly Night: Part 2 (w/Jessica Cameron)

December 21, 2017

NOTE: There is a slight hiccup early in the episode where it seems to echo the audio for about 30 seconds. Apologies for that but the rest of the episode is fairly smooth.

GARBAGE DAY!

It's the very first time Nathan & Brendan have recapped a film and its sequel as they head back to the realm of killer Santas with this slasher follow-up! They're not alone though as scream queen/actress/director Jessica Cameron is also there to join the fray.

The three of them talk about a whole lot in a short period of time from the movie consisting of 40 minutes of footage from the original film complete with flashbacks by characters who were not involved, the acting prowess of Eric Freeman, the absolutely ridiculous physics that surround all of the random murders and much, much more!

Plus: The Golden Girls are ninja nuns?!

Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered (January 11th).

December 14, 2017

The guys also reveal their next film and it's a sequel to a film we've previously covered.
