This week we talk about our holiday break and sweating ICP fans, Steve is angry at John Williams, Luke Skywalker was a late addition to Rise of Skywalker, Penis Man is at large, we talk about about the Batman story arc Hush and its animated adaptation, and Steve puts on a Wizard hat and asks Paul questions about 1996.
This week we do a round table discussion (i.e. Very Spoiler Heavy, you have been warned) of Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker with friend of the show Jeff and... JOE?! We go through our feelings and expectations about the closing chapter of the Skywalker Saga and about what worked and didn't work. We talk force ghosts, Goonie daggers, and claw machine driven sith lords. We hope you enjoy it and we hope you have a very happy Life Day!
We complete our journey through the Year of Cannon as we walk from New York to Atlanta with Jean-Claude Van Damme in 1989's Cyborg, a film that only exists because Cannon was collapsing and wanted to use sets and costumes from two other unfinished projects because they had already spent money on them. We then pick our three favorite films that we watched over the year and give our final thoughts about the strange and wonderful company that was Cannon. Bonus: We talk about the new Ghostbusters trailer and Steve has a surprise game for Paul about bustin' famous ghosts.
This week we talk about our how our holidays went, Snyder flashes us his extended cut, we take a bite out of National Cookie Day, wonder how drunk do you have to be to rob a Steak N' Shake, we discuss the divided reviews of Hideo Kojima's new game, Death Stranding, and whether investing 10 plus hours into a game before it becomes interesting is rewarding, and Steve answers questions regarding Trains, Planes, and Automobiles.
This week we continue our journey through the Year of Cannon with special guest Terry and his pick being Jean-Claude Van Damme's coming out party in 1988's Bloodsport. We trade scissor kicks, head butts, and multiple music montages as we explore the fiction and the reality behind the Kumite and whether or not Cannon struck gold once again.
This week Warner Brothers might be making the same mistake again with their superhero films, Star Trek is heading in a different direction, we have scientific proof that Tom Hanks is one of greatest human beings, we discuss the 4 new episodes of Netflix's The Toys That Made Us, and we bust our exclusive Black Friday shopping deals.
This week Steve meets a hero as Paul watches silly Hitler, Disney+ provides content warnings for their more questionable fare, Fantasy Island becomes a horror film, Turkeys are dicks, we talk about the first episode of The Mandalorian and if it can carve out its own western themed corner of the Star Wars universe, and Steve has to determine if it is a real Hallmark Channel Christmas film or not.
This week we continue our journey through the Year of Cannon by looking at one of Cannon's last big hopes for box office success: 1987's Over the Top. It has one of the hottest stars of the 80's at their peak, a soundtrack with a Kenny Loggins song, and a sports competition with not only a large cash prize, but a shot a redemption for the main character. What could go wrong? Making it about arm wrestling and truck driving is just the start...
This week we had a lot of fun with tiny tiny bottles, Creepshow gets to keep on creepin' on, Disney is locking the Fox up, the Dark Universe may still see the light of day, we finish our October SpOoOOoOOoktackular with taking a look at Michael Dougherty's love letter to all things Halloween with 2007's, uh, 2009's Trick 'r Treat and Steve forces Paul to make some horrible decisions in a game of 'Would You Rather?'
This week Paul makes parents boo him, Tarantino isn't going to cut Bruce Lee, Weird Al will outlive all of of, someone is trying to have a war on Halloween, we continue our SpoOOoOooOky journey through October with another anthology film, 1974's made for TV Trilogy of Terror and how the wonderful Karen Black shines throughout, and Steve tries to guess the names of popular films that were translated poorly in other countries.
