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.

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!

Nathan and Brendan welcome their resident extreme sports expert Jerika back to the show to talk all about a movie that was first hyped up more than three years ago on this very program! Christian Slater is a skateboarder that is trying to solve the murder of his adopted brother - what's not to love? Many things are discussed from Slater's tendencies towards sociopathic behaviour, Jerika's obsession with the lead actor going through many different phases, the most hilarious line in all of cinema and of course - just what in the heck does "gleaming the cube" mean?

 

Next week: The 100th episode! Nathan and Brendan reveal their very special plans for this milestone.
