Fantastic Four (2015) (w/Joshua Kotsabasakis)

July 2, 2020

Summer blockbusters are always a huge success, right? Well... let's examine that with our month-long series: Summer Flopbusters!

 

Nathan and Brendan welcome back resident comic book expert Josh Kotsabasakis for a dissertation on the amazingly slow and uninteresting Fantastic Four reboot. They talk about how every single charismatic actor has no charisma, the disproportionate way the film features the build-up and action scene(s), Dr. Doom being on-screen for 10 minutes, Ben Grimm being kicked to the curb and much more. Plus: Josh wonders how a lot of these superheroes use the bathroom.

 

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

June 25, 2020

The scariest time of the year is upon us as Nathan and Brendan dive into YOUR picks in the month of June. That's right - it's LISTENER'S CHOICE MONTH.

 

Why must America muck everything up that they rip off from across the pond? Join Nathan, Brendan and returning guest Mariah Lirette as they rip apart the 90s American remake of Godzilla. Many things are discussed including the unforgiveable act committed by the film's love interest, the awful CGI in the Madison Square Garden scene, Hank Azaria's Italian character, Mayor Ebert, the French Secret Service not enjoying America and much more.

 

The guys also drop a hint for next week's movie and it's "going to be... fantastic." Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!

Alright, stop! Collaborate and listen!

The guys are back with a brand-new edition.

Vanilla Ice starred in a flick...

He tries to get the suburban chick

Ice is a criminal, send him to Riker's

With his whole crew of tough dirt bikers

Slow jam montage makes Nathan mad

Movie's "success" made Vanilla Ice sad

So check out the episode, let us know what you think

Cause this friggin' schlock has driven us to drink

 

Next week: Listeners Choice Month concludes with Godzilla... yep, the 90s one. This is all thanks to the Spirit of the Home Video Hustle.

Patreon Pick: Silent Hill

Patreon Pick: Silent Hill

May 28, 2020

Back to the Patreon Picks as we get Luc Shannon from GameItAll.com to give the guys a movie that Nathan holds so near and dear to his hate-heart - Silent Hill. It's a film that with needlessly complicated storytelling that somehow doesn't have a Sean Bean death scene. The guys discuss Pyramid Head ripping a woman's clothes off, Bean roughing up some nuns, the movie not making any sense until a 10-minute explanation after 90 minutes of "action" and much more. Plus: the new coming-of-age theme song for the film.

 

Next week: Listeners Choice Month begins with a Small-Screen Shameful in the form of Skyscraper (no, not the one starring The Rock).

Nathan and Brendan welcome Lindsay back to talk about a very important film and a modern riff on Cyrano de Bergerac - the 2000 teen comedy Whatever It Takes.

Never Too Young to Die

Never Too Young to Die

May 7, 2020

Remember when Gene Simmons played a villainous hermaphrodite that wants to poison the water supply but is thwarted by an American James Bond-like figure played by John Stamos who is also the son of one-time Bond actor George Lazenby? No? Well then you must have thought it to be a fever dream much like Nathan prior to bringing this movie to the show. Join he and Brendan as they discuss Never Too Young to Die, a movie that is absolutely confounding. From the post-apocalyptic villains in a modern world, the seduction scene that includes some aggressive apple-eating (not a euphemism) and unrequited love from stereotypical Asian roommates, the guys discuss it all. Plus - what exactly is a Stargrove?
