Vampire’s Kiss (w/Everything I Learned From Movies)

Vampire’s Kiss (w/Everything I Learned From Movies)

August 15, 2019

This podcast was taped in front of a live studio audience*

 

The time has finally come for Nathan and Brendan to return to the Nicolas Cage fold and they do so with aplomb and 1989's Vampire's Kiss. Joining them are Steve and Izzy of Everything I Learned From Movies to help discuss the most insane Nicolas Cage performance of his entire career, the very strange behind-the-scenes tales from the director, Cage's accent, the real background extras (aka people who just happened to be walking by) and their non-reactions and much, much more.

 

The guys also drop a hint for next week's movie. Check in on our Twitter account on Monday for the reveal!

Armed and Dangerous

Armed and Dangerous

August 8, 2019

A different side of John Candy...

 

Nathan and Brendan go back to the 80s with this kinda-obscure oddball comedy featuring a very mean-spirited John Candy and hapless Eugene Levy as bumbling security guards. The guys discuss everything including all the original plans involving Harold Ramis and John Belushi, "killer dogs", the Michael Bay levels of violence in the finale, all of the masterful character actor performances, Meg Ryan's beautiful visage and much more. Plus: Brendan doesn't know the difference between two movies that star The Rock.

Spider-Man 3 (w/Joshua Kotsabasakis)

Spider-Man 3 (w/Joshua Kotsabasakis)

August 1, 2019

Talk about your late-franchise disappointments...

 

If you ever wondered why the world was blessed with the Andrew Garfield double-dose of Spider-Man reboots, all signs point to this flick - the third Spidey film directed by Sam Raimi. Nathan, Brendan and returning guest Joshua Kotsabasakis break this superhero movie down and discuss how there are too many villains, too many minutes in the runtime, too many scenes focusing on non-superhero stuff, too many actors that are way too talented for this nonsense and much more.

The Mummy (2017)

The Mummy (2017)

July 25, 2019

#NotMyMummy

 

Do you remember where you were on that fateful day when the Dark Universe kicked off its wholly successful cinematic universe with 2017's The Mummy to rave reviews? ...what's that? It was a one-and-done that tanked and they never made another film in the franchise? Well, of course it is! It's the final Summer Flopbuster episode! That didn't surprise Nathan and Brendan who wage war against fatigue with this particular film that attempts to erase the fun vibes set forth by the 1999 version of the story. The guys discuss everything from Cruise's real-life tyrannical reign on the set, the wasting of actors Courtney B. Vance and Jake Johnson, Russell Crowe's performance and the bonkers ending that doesn't make a lick of sense.

Cliffhanger (w/Jerika Layne)

Cliffhanger (w/Jerika Layne)

July 18, 2019

Die Hard on a mountain.

 

That's basically what this Summer Flopbuster boils down to as Nathan and Brendan welcome extreme sports expert Jerika back to the show to discuss the 1993 Stallone vehicle - Cliffhanger. This movie is absolutely nuts and the conversation goes everywhere from the special effects looking terrible in high-definition, John Lithgow's accent, the fight scene in the cave, helicopter pilots who double as post-modern artists and much, much more.

Joe’s Apartment (w/Brent & the Spirit from “Home Video Hustle”)

Joe’s Apartment (w/Brent & the Spirit from “Home Video Hustle”)

July 11, 2019

Gross.

 

Nathan and Brendan are joined by their guests Brent and the Spirit of Home Video Hustle to discuss MTV's first-ever feature-length film (at 77 minutes long!) Joe's Apartment. Everything is discussed in this "movie" including the individual scenes that made each participant nauseous, egomaniacal artists, Pepa's involvement in the story, cross-dressing villains, cartoon physics... oh and did we mention there are dancing, singing cockroaches?

Red Dawn (1984)

Red Dawn (1984)

July 4, 2019

Summer Flopbuster season begins with a very special patriotic episode on this most patriotic of days for our American brethren - July the 4th!

 

Nathan and Brendan celebrate a holiday that doesn't exist in their own home country by talking all about 1984's Red Dawn. Discussions range from the director making everyone refer to him as "The General" to the film's status as an unofficial "Brat Pack" movie to "AVENGE MEEEEEEEEE!" Fireworks! Commies! Baseball! 'Murica!

Listeners Choice: Hook

Listeners Choice: Hook

June 27, 2019
Listeners Choice Month concludes with a controversial pick from Mario of Superiority Complex podcast.
 
Nathan and Brendan face an interesting foe when they come face-to-face with Steven Spielberg's Hook. But can a movie directed by one of Hollywood's best and starring the likes of Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts and Bob Hoskins actually be considered a bad movie? The guys discuss all that plus the disturbing fate of Rufio, pirate baseball, some truly wacky cameos, kissing people while they're sleeping and a whole lot more. Plus: Why does every reviewer on Rotten Tomatoes think this is a Peter Pan remake!?

Listeners Choice: Masters of the Universe

Listeners Choice: Masters of the Universe

June 20, 2019
Listeners Choice Month continues with a pick from recurring guest Josh Kotsabasakis!
 
Nathan and Brendan dive into Exhibit A of why Cannon Films should really stick to their own original material - 1987's Masters of the Universe. The fellers discuss Dolph Lundgren and Courteney Cox kinda nailin' it, Frank Langella SUPER nailin' it and the rest of the movie... not so much. There is plenty of talk about action figures on hoverboards, the lack of fan service, Burger King wrappers in the sink and much more.
 
Next week: The guys cover 1991's Hook as suggested by Mario of the Superiority Complex podcast.

Listeners Choice: Deep Blue Sea (w/Mariah Lirette & Everything I Learned from Movies)

June 13, 2019
Listeners Choice Month continues with a pick from Dudi of Shaken Not Nerd.
 
Nathan and Brendan throw a party with returning guests Mariah Lirette AND Steve and Izzy of Everything I Learned From Movies to discuss one of the nuttiest shark movies projected onto the silver screen - Renny Harlin's Deep Blue Sea. From LL Cool J's relationship with a parrot to last-minute script rewrites to some extremely questionable science to THE GREATEST SCENE OF ALL-TIME IN ANY MOVIE EVER, it's all discussed and broken down. Sometimes, the gang even stays on-topic.
 
Next week: We discuss the pick from Josh Kotsabasakis - Masters of the Universe.
