Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) (w/Dame Malcolm Wallace)

November 14, 2019

Continuing the (unintentional) theme of franchise reboots that everyone hates, Nathan and Brendan bring back the elegant Dame Malcolm Wallace to talk about the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles disaster. Why are the turtles designed to look like nightmare-inducing beasts? Can Will Arnett single-handedly save a movie that he is only in for about five minutes? And just how in the hell are we meant to believe for ONE SECOND that William Fichtner ISN'T playing the villain?

Terminator Genisys (w/Brent from “Home Video Hustle”)

Terminator Genisys (w/Brent from “Home Video Hustle”)

November 7, 2019

With the new Terminator: Dark Fate film opening in theatres nationwide this week, Nathan and Brendan thought it'd be important to revisit the previous entry in the series so everyone can be refreshed before going into the natural conclusion of this story - what's that now? This film is wiped from the canon and doesn't matter at all? Well... dang. Thankfully, the guys have brought back frequent guest Brent Fullen from the Home Video Hustle to help endure the mind-numbing pain that comes with all the fan service, time travel nonsense and EVIL JOHN CONNOR. Plus: Find out how this film would be cast with the nWo playing all the roles.

Small-Screen Shamefuls: Ticks (w/ Everything I Learned From Movies)

Small-Screen Shamefuls: Ticks (w/ Everything I Learned From Movies)

October 31, 2019

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Continuion on with Schlocktober, the anniversary of a special month in Canada AND the second edition of Small-Screen Shamefuls, Nathan and Brendan join forces with Steve & Izzy of Everything I Learned From Movies to talk about the insanity of 1993's "Ticks." Are we really supposed to buy Fresh Prince's Carlton as an intimidating thug? Why does Clint Howard set up indoor bear traps? And just what in the Hell is so domineering about Peter Scolari as a camp counselor?

Maximum Overdrive

Maximum Overdrive

October 24, 2019

Continuing on as we get closer to the home stretch of Schlocktober, Nathan brings one of his childhood favourites to the show as the guys dissect the absolute sheer lunacy of Stephen King's directorial debut (and finale) - Maximum Overdrive. Madness ensues like a debate about which 'mechanical' devices in this film can truly be sentient, Brendan has a theory about one of the "greatest" acting moments of all-time, weird sex stuff comes up a lot and much more.

Pet Sematary Two

Pet Sematary Two

October 17, 2019

It's not the sequel that we deserved. It's the sequel that no one wanted.

 

Much to Nathan's chagrin, he and Brendan tackled the sequel to one of his favourite genre classics, Pet Sematary Two. You wanted harrowing family horror? How about a nightmare where Anthony Edwards almost makes it with a wolf-woman? Compelling lead characters? You get Edward Furlong who changes his attitude throughout the movie around 20 times. Coherent plot? No, you get a third act that completely derails the already off-the-rails schlockfest. It's the film that Stephen King wanted NOTHING to do with... and keep in mind... he put his name on Dreamcatcher.

Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare

Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare

October 10, 2019

Truth or Dare???

 

Continuing on with the spookiest month of the year, Schlocktober rests on last year's critical failure in the form of Blumhouse's Truth or Dare. Nathan and Brendan discuss everything from vodka-brand vodka, how this movie is not the Madonna documentary, talk about all the ways that the demon cheats at his own game, Scary Potter and much more.

The Happening (w/Lindsay Escoffery)

The Happening (w/Lindsay Escoffery)

October 3, 2019

The Event... it's happening...

 

As Schlocktober begins, Nathan and Brendan welcome their guest Lindsay to talk all about one of her favourite good-bad movies - The Happening. It's the first Shyamalan movie on the podcast and probably not the last one. The gang dives into this mess from the ridiculous stilted performances from the most miscast actors ever to the unintentional hilarity of several intentionally-harrowing scenes to several theories about how this damn thing got made. But your hosts are going to be mean, right? Serve up the goods to this piece of crap? ...What? Noooo.

Patreon Pick: McBain

Patreon Pick: McBain

September 26, 2019

This is not what you think it is...

 

Do not worry, folks - The Simpsons did it first! Nathan and Brendan discuss this week's film in the form of our next Patreon Pick from Steve and Izzy of Everything I Learned from Movies. You've seen all the macho 80s parodies over the years with every major trope including drug dealers, 'assembling a team', ridiculous action movie logic and lines of dialogue that are so cheesy they just make you guffaw and howl with laughter. Well, this... this movie is all of that as well as containing weird sibling chemistry, Christopher Walken trying out different accents (!), Luis Guzman making an amazing cameo and EVEN MORE. Ladies and gentlemen, McBain.

Cool World (w/Drew from Reel Feels Podcast)

Cool World (w/Drew from Reel Feels Podcast)

September 19, 2019

Who Framed Roger Rabbit... this ain't!

 

Nathan and Brendan welcome back Drew from the Reel Feels Podcast to talk about the absolute misfire known as Ralph Bakshi's Cool World. This could best be described as Roger Rabbit if all the worst technical decisions ever were made. The guys get into it with a breakdown of the movie's horrendous special effects, the behind-the-scenes shenanigans that completely altered the original intention of the film, the mechanics of what does or doesn't constitute sexual relations with a cartoon character and much more.

Taking a break from specific film discussion, Nathan and Brendan present their annual Manos Hand-Outs for the worst of the worst and of course some awards for the movies that caused them less pain than others. And of course it wouldn't be an awards show without a multitude of guests... and boy oh boy, there are no stars in the sky this week because they were all... well... here. Listen in as Uwe Boll, Sylvester Stallone, Meryl Streep, the current president of the United States and many more hand out the most coveted awards in cinema.
