This week Steve talks about his experience of watching two filmed on video horror films, Paul talks about going back to the Burning Crusade, Rob Zombie is making a Munsters film, a mobile game makes a terrible mistake in the name of Pride Month, we discuss the Hulu Marvel animated series M.O.D.O.K. and how it makes you care about a guy who just wants to take over the world and enslave you, and Paul makes Steve take an acronym quiz. Will he P.A.S.S?
This week we talk about our Memorial Day holiday, Steve ventures outside to a Quiet Place, Paul stays inside for a A Loud Place (aka Army of the Dead), we hope we don't get caught cheese handed, we talk about the 8 eight episode second season of Netflix's Love, Death, and Robots, and Steve has Paul create 6 perfect Cannon films.
This week we mix up our Year of the Sequel with a callback to our Year of Cannon by looking at American Ninja 2: The Confrontation. Can Cannon handle a sequel to one of their own original properties? Why do Ninjas show up without warning to ruin a fun day at the beach? Was Steve James allergic to sleeves? Join us as we get into three different fights at the same bar and end up at a ninja cloning community college as we try to answer these questions and more.
This week we talk about cheating on each other by doing other podcasts, watching 5 Dirty Harry films within 24 hours, MST3K living yet again, some cops have to wrangle a crocodile out of a parking lot, and we get into the the thorny but worthwhile discussion about 'fixing' art and what the means for the creator and for those that interact with the content, and Paul challenges Steve to figure out which poorly translated movie title is the real one that was used overseas.
This week we realize it is hard to talk about Tenet, Phase 4 has made us very excited to go back to the movies, one poor sightseer has crappy luck, and we talk about a very obscure Marvel comic book hero, Darkhawk, and his origins and the challenges that need to be overcome in order to launch a new character in a world full of Avengers, and Paul must slay Steve's Spectacular Superhero Synonyms!™
This week we briefly talk about the wrap up of Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Paul subjects Steve to three Secret New Stories™ that involve a bunch of Joshs, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and a.... grenade, and we face off against 2021's Mortal Kombat and talk about what needs to happen to make a good film adaptation of a video game, and Steve has to determine which Kombatants are real or made up.
This week we continue on with the Year of the Sequel by looking at Ken Smith's Clerks II from 2006. We first dig into our feelings about the original Clerks and then the greater View Askew Universe and see if Clerks II was a high point in his career or an unneeded sequel.
This week we don't have any news, but boy howdy do we have hot takes about Godzilla Vs. Kong and free super low budget horror movies on Tubi, also Steve tries to ruin the lack of news by mentioning some news about a new MST3K kickstarter, we then go on to discuss the 2020 documentary The Last Blockbuster and talk about the power of nostalgia and how not to stretch your project to feature length, and then Paul is a challenged to a game of BUY IT NOW.™
This week we get upset at Youtube, it's going to cost a lot to keep those Knives Out, John Romita Jr. comes home, one guy really like Endgame, we dig in the Versus subgenre of horror films by looking at 2003's Freddy vs. Jason and see how successful it was with having two iconic 80's slashers go head to head, and Steve gets a case of Breakfast Cereal March Madness and has to determine which cereal mascot comes out on top.
This week we are joined by friend of the show and co-host of At The Devil's Ball, Nathaniel, to dig into the four hour marathon that is Zack Snyder's Justice League. We talk about what works, what doesn't, and question why some changes were made either way. Oh, and for a first time on the show, all swear words are allowed. If Zack Snyder can make Batman swear, then we should be able to as well.
