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).

Whatever It Takes (w/Lindsay Escoffery)

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.

The guys also reveal next week's movie - a Patreon Pick from Luc!

Lionheart

Lionheart

May 14, 2020

This week, the guys finally tackle a full-fledged Jean-Claude Van Damme flick (No Retreat, No Surrender doesn't count) with the 1990 cult classic Lionheart. They talk about the swanky saxophone soundtrack, a main character that mumbles about 70% of his dialogue, the debut of buns, Cynthia and her amazing outifts and much more.

 

The guys also drop a hint for next week's movie: "Cyrano de Berger-ugh." Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!

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?

Small-Screen Shamefuls: A Talking Cat!?! (w/ Everything I Learned From Movies)

Small-Screen Shamefuls: A Talking Cat!?! (w/ Everything I Learned From Movies)

April 30, 2020

It's that time again where the guys delve into some more offbeat fare and nothing could be more appropriately weird and off-putting as much as A Talking Cat!?! Steve and Izzy of Everything I Learned From Movies join your hosts Nathan and Brendan to discuss a film in which the director's previous works leave a certain creepy stench on the proceedings. They also talk about Eric Roberts LITERALLY phoning in his performance, the obvious techniques to get a performance out of the titular feline, everything taking place in real time, cheese puffs and much more.

Cats (w/Amanda the Jedi)

Cats (w/Amanda the Jedi)

April 23, 2020

The time has come. It is finally time to talk about Cats. Luckily, Nathan and Brendan weren't alone and they brought back CNN superstar Amanda the Jedi to endure the magic with them. The gang talk about everything from the musical numbers only serving as character introductions, Jennifer Hudson's Oscar-grabbing performance, the horrifying visuals in the milk bar, the plot which may involve purgatory and/or really weird sex stuff... with cats, and.. and... well you'll just have to listen to the MULTITUDE of issues in one of the most nightmarish bizarre films released in quite some time.

Green Lantern

Green Lantern

April 16, 2020

Remember when comic book movies had a far worse track record? Well, Nathan and Brendan sure do as they tackle DC's misguided attempt and Ryan Reynolds' ultimate disappointment with Green Lantern. They talk about a multitude of follies including Reynolds himself being miscast, traumatic events coming up at the most convenient moments in the plot, the horrible $200 million CGI, helicopter race tracks and much more. Plus: WHOA, movie - did you just cast Tim Robbins as Peter Sarsgaard's FATHER?!

Behind Enemy Lines (w/Jason MacLeod)

Behind Enemy Lines (w/Jason MacLeod)

April 9, 2020

This week, Jason MacLeod of "For Screen and Country" comes back to hang out with the guys and discuss the Owen Wilson/Gene Hackman war thriller - Behind Enemy Lines. The gang talk about how a movie makes a scary real-life conflict into a pretty fluffy action zinger while also discussing stuff like Owen Wilson's nose, the stormtrooper-like aim by all the villains, the in-your-face style of the cinematography and much more. Plus: Nathan pitches the ultimate TV show.

Raw Deal (w/Liz of “Nerdy Bitches Podcast”)

Raw Deal (w/Liz of “Nerdy Bitches Podcast”)

April 2, 2020

Joining Nathan and Brendan this week is Liz of the Nerdy Bitches Podcast (a self-admitted fan of Bad Arnold Movies) to help dissect this totally strange 80s Schwarzenegger relic known as "Raw Deal." Much is discussed here including the lack of one-liners for our star, the infamous cake scene, the massive amounts of law-breaking that goes unpunished, horrible taste in dress fashion and much more.
