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.

Listeners Choice: Free Style

Listeners Choice: Free Style

June 6, 2019
Listeners Choice Month begins with a pick from the Spirit of the Home Video Hustle podcast.
 
Nathan and Brendan begin the riskiest time of the year by discussing the 2008 dirt bike movie (with the worst DVD cover of all time) Free Style. The guys dive deep into this super-generic box-office flop and don't gloss over a thing including a discussion about how every single movie trope that appears, Corbin Bleu as an abusive jerk, the Godfather-like party scene, the ear-shattering soundtrack and much, much more.
 
Next week: Dudi of Shaken Not Nerd brings us his pick - Deep Blue Sea!

Starting with next week's Listeners Choice Month, Nathan and Brendan are going to be doing weekly movie episodes with no more minis so enjoy this final slice of randomness before the format change. In this one, the guys talk about some movies they've recently seen, debate the racism of Peppermint, sing the praises of John Wick: Chapter 3 and much more.

The Dark Tower (w/Amanda the Jedi)

May 23, 2019
This week, it's time for Nathan to let HIS nerd flag fly high!
 
Nathan and Brendan recruit first-time guest Amanda the Jedi to help them dissect one of the more muddled and exhausting Stephen King adaptations with The Dark Tower. The gang discuss everything including Matthew McConaughey's terrible wig, condensing so much material into 94 minutes, Stephen King's personal relationship with film adaptations of his works and much more.
 
Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered.

It's the moment you've been waiting for...

Listen in and enjoy the anxiety as your hosts let the internet book the show. Yikes!

Wing Commander (w/Jason MacLeod)

Wing Commander (w/Jason MacLeod)

May 9, 2019
NERD RAGE!
 
Nathan and Brendan welcome back Jason MacLeod on the program for a movie he personally hand-picked in 1999's Wing Commander starring the hottest teen movie stars of the 90s... and Jurgen Prochnow. From Jason's absolute rage at the innacuracy of the film adaptation of the video game to the weird religious aspects of the script to the bewilderment from all three gentlemen in regards to the reveal of the Kilrathi puppets, this episode has it all and then some!
 
Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered.

Mini-Episode - Soundtracks for Turds

Mini-Episode - Soundtracks for Turds

May 2, 2019
Rock out with your... anyway... 
 
This week, Nathan and Brendan talk about bad-to-questionable films that were massively overshadowed by their kick-ass soundtracks. From the bottom of the pit with Batman Forever to the also-terrible Fifty Shades of Grey and everything in between, the guys break down what makes these tunes the only gratifying part of these turd sandwiches. They also read some listener favourites as well!
 
Nathan and Brendan also reveal next week's video game movie (picked by our guest).

Young Einstein

Young Einstein

April 25, 2019
G'day mate!
 
Nathan and Brendan continue a red-headed trend but this time travel to the land down under for the Yahoo Serious-directed/written/produced/starring project - Young Einstein. It's the tale of Albert Einstein's humble beginnings as a Tasmanian apple farmer and of course his love affair with Marie Curie, his super-horny mother, the time he invented rock 'n' roll music and much, much more!
 
Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered.

Mini-Episode - Post-Wrestlemania Pre-Show Predictions

Calendars are hard.
 
This week, Nathan and Brendan discuss the "upcoming" Wrestlemania 35 and predict the matches and surprises. To be fair ("TO BE FAIRRRRR"), this was recorded the day of the show so feel free to marvel at their accuracy and laugh at all the ones they got horribly wrong.
 
Nathan and Brendan also reveal next week's film about an Aussie scientist.

Chairman of the Board (w/Jerika Layne)

April 11, 2019
Peak Carrot Top.
 
Nathan, Brendan and returning guest (and EXTREME SPORTS EXPERT) Jerika discuss the film Norm MacDonald famously described as "box office poison." Yes, folks it's time to talk all about Chairman of the Board. From Carrot Top being a straight-up serial killer, the multitude of amazing character actors that are completely under-utilized, sex with farm animals and much more.
