Episode 24 - Uncle Sam

July 6, 2017

Nathan & Brendan get all patriotic with this very special episode as they unpack the bizarre horror/comedy straight-to-video gem, "Uncle Sam."

Many topics are covered including the bizarre magic that surrounds Sam's resurrection from the dead, the script that basically reads as a run-through and the overall insanity of the last 25 minutes of the film in which a seemingly new premise is enforced, brand-new characters are introduced and semi-famous people show up to die.

WE WANT YOU... to watch this episode. Please.

Mailbag #2: Back in the Habit

June 29, 2017

Who would Nathan and Brendan choose to play themselves in a movie? Will the sequel to Avatar ever see the light of day? Where are the lost episodes? Controversy also strikes as the boys decide what their favourite type of pie is - the answer will shock you! They also briefly mention the next film they'll be covering which involves a man coming back from the dead while wearing a certain iconic festive garb.

Plus: did Nathan just wage a grammar war against a fellow podcast?

Episode 23 - The Crazies

June 22, 2017

Nathan and Brendan go back to the "movie might be insane but it's fun to watch" choices after last week's horrific film as they tackle the 2010 remake of one of George A. Romero's classic (?) films, "The Crazies."

They discuss how Timothy Olyphant would have been a strange choice for this role based on the movies he had been doing at the time, Google Earth being the villains in this movie, Brendan confesses his love for Danielle Panabaker and reveals that he can't pronounce names and Nathan questions if people were infected before the movie even kicks off. Plus: some announcements too!

Episode 22 - Ben & Arthur (w/Mariah Lirette)

June 8, 2017

Nathan and Brendan (and special guest Mariah) dissect one of the most ineptly-made films of all time. Seemingly a film that's made entirely from a pro-gay marriage point of view created by homosexual filmmakers somehow manages to be offensive towards gay people.

The gang talk about everything from deep discoveries involving scenes that may actually be flashbacks, Holy Hitmen, gay Christian fundamentalists, the beautiful palm trees of Vermont and the classic film that inspired the finale. We also learn that Mariah may be harbouring a deep, dark secret.

Episode 21 - Law Abiding Citizen

May 25, 2017

Imagine if Gerard Butler were cast as The Punisher but was sent a script for an unmade Saw movie and in the meantime the studio lost the rights to The Punisher and the studio just decided to the make the movie anyway.  That's not what happened with Law Abiding Citizen, but we like to think that's what happened with it.  Come and listen to Brendan and Nathan as they try and wrap their heads around a movie that has problems with logic, physics and even basic math.

Episode 20 - Killer Klowns from Outer Space

May 11, 2017

Now here's a movie that delivers on what it promises.  This movie starts out absolutely bananas and never lets up and if you've seen it, you're better for it.  This movie must be seen to be believed but if you can't watch it, just sit back and listen while your big top ringmasters Nathan and Brendan regale you with a tale that must be heard... if only to entice you into making time for this 80's cult classic. HURRY! HURRY! HURRY!

Episode 19 - Listener’s Choice #4: Rollerball (w/Jerika Layne)

April 27, 2017

The director of Die Hard took a hard slide and remade a cult classic. The original was about the proliferation of violence in sports and media in general. The re-make was about 90 minutes that we're never getting back. It's a movie where we're supposed to believe that 'dead behind the eyes' Chris "channeling my best Keanu impression" Klein is the same age as Ladies Love Cool James... and it just goes downhill from there. Join Nathan and Brendan as they suffer through this early 2000s debacle with our resident extreme sports expert Jerika Layne. If it gets to be too much for you, just remind yourself to keep a Rollerball head and you'll be Rollerball in the end.

Episode 18 - Listener’s Choice #3: Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D (w/Joshua Kotsabasakis)

April 20, 2017

Introducing the movie that nearly broke us.   It's a movie where one of the most respected Marvel characters, known for his sly wit, military know-how and serious demeanour is portrayed as a one-liner spewing, guns blasting, pervy two dimensional caricature.  It's a movie so ridiculous that it made us pine for the time we watched JD Salinger's kid as Captain America.  This is us suffering for you, our listeners.  If you listen close enough you can hear all three of us slowly dying just a little bit inside as we progress through the unpacking of this movie.

Episode 17 - Listener’s Choice #2: Monkeybone

April 13, 2017

This movie is an example of how something can look so great on paper but ends up being SO bad when put onto film.  A prime example of what can happen when a fantastic director is undone by studio meddling.  But, hey at least you get naked Dave Foley and Rose Mc-Meow-an.  Nathan and Brendan spend an hour and a half talking about Monkeybone... no, not like that... well... sort of.
