Yippie kai-yay, mothe-- hey, not so fast this week's film!
 
Nathan, Brendan and returning guest Brent (of the Home Video Hustle) gather round to talk about the fourth installment in the John McClane saga - "Live Free or Die Hard." Many things get discussed and some of them are about the movie! Topics range from magical Hollywood computers to the best OnStar commercial of all-time, cars murdering helicopters and much more. Plus: Nathan lays down his dad law and Brent's grandmother has some real "hot takes" to dish out.
 
Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered.

Mini-Episode - We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Ending!

February 21, 2019
February rolls on...
 
The guys have a real variety of an episode this week with discussions ranging from the new "Shaft" sequel (?), Nathan's intense hatred of Michael Cera, bitterness in the world of old-school wrestling promoters, annoying horror movie ending tropes that bother both of them to a great extent and of course - they sample a nice helping of Blumhouse's Wikipedia page.
 
Nathan and Brendan also reveal next week's movie... wait... isn't this a... good... movie?

Mini-Episode - I Am Offended

Mini-Episode - I Am Offended

February 7, 2019
Tonight on a very special What Were They Thinking...
 
It gets a little serious this week as a seemingly normal jokey conversation turns to a pretty in-depth discussion on political correctness and people being offended by stuff (don't worry, it's not a conversation just making fun of 'snowflakes' or whatever the new culture wants to call them). They also talked about some funny stuff including a discussion of a couple of new films Brendan saw in theatres.
 
Nathan and Brendan also reveal next week's movie... hellerrrrrr.

Mini-Episode - Coming Soon

Mini-Episode - Coming Soon

January 24, 2019
Onward and upward!
 
Much like the previous mini-episode, this is another look at a year of film but rather than going back to talk about the best and worst of 2018, Nathan and Brendan instead discuss what they're looking forward to the most and least from the upcoming year. They discuss sure-fire disasters like Sonic the Hedgehog and gems like Us and Avengers: Endgame, complain about too many Disney reboots (THREE THIS YEAR ALONE!) and even get a brief nearly-wordless visit from a recurring guest.
 
Nathan and Brendan also reveal next week's movie which will also feature a first: A PATREON GUEST!

Patreon Pick: Troop Beverly Hills

Patreon Pick: Troop Beverly Hills

January 17, 2019
Beverly Hills! What a thrill!
 
Nathan and Brendan delve into the next Patreon Pick (from Dannie) and discuss the late-80s Shelley Long vehicle - Troop Beverly Hills. From an in-depth conversation about how this may indeed be a TV movie, children giving illicit reading material to the elderly, lots of not-so-timeless dancing and some of the weirdest cameos ever, this movie proves to be... well... hey, it's better than Postal, OK?
 
Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie that will be covered.

Mini-Episode - Best and Worst of 2018

Mini-Episode - Best and Worst of 2018

January 10, 2019
Time for a YEAR... IN... REVIEW!
 
After listing some films that were disasters that they were surprised by and some they were totally not shocked by, Nathan and Brendan then delve into the best and worst films of the year from innovative works like Into the Spiderverse to whatever dreck Blumhouse is dealing in these days.
 
Nathan and Brendan also reveal next week's movie starring a former TV star trying to transition into film.
 
Note: Apologies right off the top for the subpar microphone quality. Brendan just got new equipment and left it on the wrong settings for the recording. It's still totally listenable but not as good as it will be when it is fixed for the January 17th episode.

Patreon Pick: Postal

Patreon Pick: Postal

January 3, 2019
Starting off 2019 with a whimper!
 
Nathan and Brendan welcome their next Patreon Pick from Luc Shannon of GameItAll with one of the worst things ever put to celluloid - 2008's Postal. Yes, friend of the podcast Uwe Boll is back on the chopping block with tasteless shock material that barely registers as comedy, horrible presidential impressions, respected actors selling their soul and a whole lot more. Ewwie.
 
Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great movie (another Patreon Pick!) that will be covered.
