Episode 28 - Pearl Harbor (w/Jason MacLeod)

August 31, 2017

As the boys wrap up the Summer Flopbuster/Lackluster season, they take on another Michael Bay film in the form of the ungodly long 180-minute wankfest - Pearl Harbor. Nathan, Brendan and special guest Jason MacLeod talk about everything from the movie taking nearly 90 minutes to get to the actual attack, the return of WWTT alums Michael Shannon, William Fichtner, Jen Garner and Cuba Gooding Jr, that whole love triangle thing, the vast amount of historical inaccuracies and of course - Jon Voight as President Roosevelt.

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

Episode 27 - GI Joe: Rise of Cobra (w/Matthew Pettifer)

August 17, 2017

YO JOE!

Nathan & Brendan (as well as special guest and GI Joe diehard Matthew Pettifer) talk all things G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, another horrible attempt at an adaptation of something people genuinely enjoyed. They discuss everything including Channing Tatum's wooden acting, iconic characters being introduced in the last five minutes of the movie, the inconsistent science, Marlon Wayans Tubthumping, approximately 1700 flashbacks and finally - Matt joins Nathan in mocking Brendan for his lack of GI Joe knowledge.

Mailbag #5: Hangin’ With My (Michael) Bae

August 10, 2017

A mere week after tackling Bad Boys II, Nathan & Brendan open up the mailbag this week for all of your Michael Bay-centric questions (save for one). Does Michael Bay truly care about making films even to this day? What kind of Trailer Park Boys-inspired beverage does he bring to mind? And why is casual racism one of his worst hallmarks? All this and more plus a very special appearance by someone who is very well-endowed.

The guys also reveal their next film in the Summer Flopbuster/Lackluster/Schlockbuster/whatever you want to call it series which includes more stuff blowing up and soldiers. Yee-haw!

Be sure to send us more questions on Twitter (www.twitter.com/wwttpodcast), Facebook (www.facebook.com/wwttpodcast) or e-mail us (wwttpodcast@gmail.com)!

PS: Any questions we didn't get to this time WILL be answered on the next Mailbag.

Episode 26 - Bad Boys II

August 3, 2017

It's about damn time as Nathan & Brendan finally enter the Michael Bay-niverse to talk about the sequel to arguably one of his better earlier works - Bad Boys II.

This one, however, is anything but the original. Explosions? Check. Will Smith saying the N-word over and over again? Check. Joey Pants attempting to overact more than Gary Oldman in "Criminal"? Check.

The guys discuss everything from the charisma of Smith and Lawrence constantly trying to overpower the god-awful script, the strange appearance by Michael Shannon (we all gotta start somewhere), Matt Walsh possibly acting as a corpse, the worst undercover agent of all-time and of course - cats and iguanas. Somebody PLEASE figure out... cats and iguanas.

Mailbag #4: Jackin’ it in the Booth

July 27, 2017

It's time for a brand-new mailbaaaaaaag!

Nathan & Brendan answer a cavalcade of new questions where they cast "The Avengers" using only professional wrestlers, we find out why people hate Tom Cruise (as a person) and was the Lone Ranger truly Johnny Depp's worst role/performance of all-time?

The guys also reveal their next film in which they will dive into the Michael Bay-niverse for the very first time.

Episode 25 - The Lone Ranger

July 20, 2017

Nathan & Brendan dived head-first right into a Disney nightmare wrapped in a romantic sub-plot wrapped in a goofy comedy wrapped in an action epic. That's right, they watched "The Lone Ranger" and boy oh boy, did they ever have some things to get off their chests!

The guys talk about everything from one of the most questionable casting choices of the 21st and 20th century, Helena Bonham-Carter's miniscule role being enough to land her on the poster, the unnecessary wrap-around story and the final line of the movie that figuratively urinates on anyone who was a fan of the source material.

Mailbag #3: Summer Edition

July 13, 2017

Nathan & Brendan dive into a brand-new mailbag that includes disturbing movies from their youth (shoutout to the Film Roast peeps, yo!), Brendan wishing ill upon a certain "iconic" Michael Keaton character, outdoor screenings that should not be attended by children and the nightmare world where a sequel to Baywatch is made.

They also discuss their next upcoming episode which will be a movie that features a not-so-politically correct performance from Johnny Depp in a film that flopped hard. Yes, that's right. Next week - the Summer Flopbusters begin!

Plus: Will Nathan continue his grammar war?

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.
