Interview: Kelli Maroney (”Chopping Mall,” “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “Night of the Comet”)

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?

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

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).

Episode 35 - Surviving Christmas

December 7, 2017

In the first of two Christmas-themed flicks this month, Nathan and Brendan attempt to... well... survive "Surviving Christmas."

They go into a lot of background on the film like how it was a colossal box office failure when it opened in October (?), Ben Affleck's character being a total psychopath, the movie being comprised of tons of improv but the one great improvisational performer being completely shortchanged, the character of "Dooda," Catherine O'Hara's very complicated character trajectory, the last half-hour of the movie that plays out like a sitcom and much more. Plus: Brendan can NOT tell the difference between Chris Evans and Chris Pine.

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

Episode 34 - Spawn (w/Joshua Kotsabasakis)

November 23, 2017

Nathan and Brendan welcome back frequent guest and comic book aficionado Joshua Kotsabasakis for an occasionally super nerdy chat regarding the 1997 Image Comics "masterpiece" - Spawn.

The gang discusses everything from Spawn not being a good person even at the beginning of the film, stealthy rocket assassinations, some of the worst special effects ever displayed on film, doctors defying the Hippocratic Oath, the dogged efforts of Martin Sheen and John Leguizamo and much, much more.

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