Striking Distance (w/Brent from “Home Video Hustle”)

Striking Distance (w/Brent from “Home Video Hustle”)

February 20, 2020

Thrill to a rote action movie starring Bruce Willis that may actually be a TV movie in disguise! Gasp at one of the cheapest whodunit reveals ever! Consider yourself befuddled at a man who keeps autographed portraits with his ex-girlfriends in his home! It's a film where Moonlighting's dad Martin Crane is killed and so he must team with Sex and the City to solve the case before it's too late. Also, the housekeeper from Murphy Brown is there. Join Nathan, Brendan (and Brent of the Home Video Hustle for the last third) as they attempt to make sense out of Striking Distance.

Valentine (w/Everything I Learned from Movies)

Valentine (w/Everything I Learned from Movies)

February 13, 2020

In a very special Valentine's Day episode, the guys are joined by lovebirds Steve and Izzy of Everything I Learned from Movies to talk about... well... Valentine. Yes, it's the wild slasher from 2001 that dares you to genuinely like or feel sympathy for a single person in the film, revels in its "pretty accurate" portrayal of weird art shows, introduces characters in a Hitchcockian manner and features early work by Master Thespian Katherine Heigl. Plus - the ultimate debate: did Dorothy help or did the killer work alone? Let us know if you are #TeamAdam or #DorothyHelped to settle this debate between Brendan and the dinosaur people!

Madea Goes to Jail

Madea Goes to Jail

February 6, 2020

Heller!

 

Yes, it's time for Nathan and Brendan to revisit the TPCU (Tyler Perry Cinematic Universe) with the controversially-titled Madea Goes to Jail in that the title of the film only applies for about 15-20 minutes. The guys talk about Rudy Huxtable as a prostitute, the maniacal shifts of tone in the film between sketch comedy and harrowing drama, Uncle Joe's deadly lifestyle, Duke University, the legality of a police sting operation and much more.

The Haunting of Sharon Tate (w/Amanda the Jedi)

The Haunting of Sharon Tate (w/Amanda the Jedi)

January 30, 2020

All good things must come to an end. Or something like that. The finale of Recently Regrettable focuses on quite possibly the most tasteless piece of cinema that Nathan and Brendan (and returning guest Amanda the Jedi) have ever covered on the podcast - The Haunting of Sharon Tate. Yes, it's director Daniel Farrands' "tribute" to the victims of the Manson Family Murders done as a schlocky horror film. You'll hear all about his desperate attempt to reach out to Debra Tate, the god-awful ADR, the acting resembling a high school play, one of the stupidest endings in recent memory and much more. Also: an opinion that will shake the very fabric of this podcast.

The Prodigy

The Prodigy

January 23, 2020

The takedown of last year continues with another horror flick - this time it's the 'evil kid' dud, The Prodigy starring Taylor Schilling, Colm Feore and no one else that matters. Nathan and Brendan talk about wasting actors in expository roles, creepy cuddling, old laptops and tape recorders, one major plot hole that reveals itself during the final moments of the movie and much more.

 

The guys also drop a hint for next week's movie, which will be the final installment in the "Recently Regrettable" series focusing on the worst of 2019. Check in on our Twitter account on Monday for the reveal!

The Fanatic

The Fanatic

January 16, 2020

This week, Nathan and Brendan continue their journey through some of the worst films from 2019 with John Travolta's misguided attempt at an Oscar under the watchful eye of director Fred Durst (yes, he of Limp Bizkit fame) in The Fanatic. The guys talk about John Travolta's British accent, Leah being the ultimate villain, how this film seems to hate every type of viewer and of course the Limp Bizkit scene. Folks, this one is full-on crazytown.

The Curse of La Llorona

The Curse of La Llorona

January 9, 2020

We're back, baby!

 

Nathan and Brendan start off a January mini-series called "Recently Regrettable" which focuses on the worst films of 2019. For the first episode, the guys focus on The Curse of La Llorona, the sixth entry in the Conjuring franchise... barely. Much is discussed including Tucco using eggs to fight a ghost, the rules governing Child Protection Services, one of the most inane and ridiculous final acts, Blumhouse's Canon Films-esque business model and much, much more.

Holiday Flashback: Surviving Christmas

Holiday Flashback: Surviving Christmas

December 26, 2019

The show is still on vacation until next week so until then, please enjoy a rerun of their discussion regarding the Christmas "classic" - 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.

 

Next week: A clip of one of our Patreon Exclusive episodes!

December 19, 2019

It's time for the official Christmas episode... and that means only one thing. Mariah is back on the show, bay bay! Long Dong Silver joins the guys to talk about a pretty mean-spirited Disney flick featuring sociopath Jonathan Taylor Thomas, cute-as-a-button Jessica Biel, Discount Steve Carell, Tom Jones grannies and so many 90s cliches. As one man journeys home so that he can claim ownership of his dad's Porsche, does this film claim ownership of their hearts? Tune in and find out!

 

The show will return to full episodes on January 9th with a new mini-series: Recently Regrettable, which will cover four of the worst turds from 2019.
