This week we return to our Year of the Knock Off by talking about one the high points of action and sci-fi cinema, James Cameron's Aliens from 1986, and then we look at 1989's Shocking Dark aka Terminator II aka Alinenators, an Italian film that dares to ask the question: What if we take scenes and dialogue from a much more popular film but shoot them on a budget of 7 dollars?
This week Star Wars might be turning away from spinoffs, Nuclear Man (and our ability to not say his name correctly) is coming in hot to DC comics, we say goodbye to another wrestling icon, we open the toy chest again as we talk Season 2 of Netflix's The Toys That Made Us and try not to step on any loose lego bricks in the process, and Steve challenges Paul to idenitfy various transmorphing robots.
This week Jason may have finally met his match, Fallout 76 makes West Virigina the prettiest hellscape ever, we talk about the HBO documentary: Andre the Giant, and how a man that was larger than life faced challenges most of us will never know, and Steve tasks Paul with figuring out what is real and what is fake at the Mall of the Dead.
This week we keep trying to talk about Jared Leto's Joker getting a standalone film, toxic Star Wars fans, we are teased by the Halloween teaser, we then enter the All Valley Karate Championship as we face off against season 1 of YouTube Red's Cobra Kai, and Paul challenges Steve to a fight test.
This week we are joined again by Jeff Ritchie (aka Fredpaints) as we talk about Jamie Foxx being cast as Spawn, some recently announced local screenings of midight movies, saying goodbye to a true Canadian hero, and talk about the 4th Disney produced Star Wars Film, Solo, and our reactions to it and if these standalone 'Star Wars Stories' are working, and Steve has Paul and Jeff face off against each other in a Summer Movie Jeopardy Deathmatch.
This week we look at the original 1977 Star Wars and how it changed the way people look at scince fiction/fantasy films, and film in general, and then we look at 1979's Starcrash, a film that takes a lot of ingredients from Star Wars but mixes them up and underbakes them to make something that may not taste as good, but definitely has its own weird (and kind of likeable) flavor.
This week a lot of TV shows got canceled, we say goodbye to Margot Kidder, a troll got trolled, we interview artist and writer Brian Level about his work on The Mantle, Spider-man, The Avengers and how his love of horror is shaping what he is doing next, and we try to bring some new life to old show by remixing them.
This week Paul spoils God of War (spoilers, start at [04:30] and end at [8:30]), Bill and Ted are coming back for a third adventure, MoviePass probably is too good to be true, Arrested Development gets a remixed season 4, we have large spoiler filled discussion about Avengers: Infinity War, and then Steve sees if he can run the jewels and survive the Finite Gauntlet.
This week we say goodbye to Ash, try to understand a Venom film without Spider-Man, make super accurate predictions as to what Fox will announce for Alien Day, we take a look at the original Infinity Gauntlet event series and see what ground work it laid out for the Infinity War film, and Steve sees if Paul knows his super hero accessories.
This week we talk about Billy Mitchell's well deserved fall from grace, say goodbye to a Sergeant and a Judge, find out that we are moments away from the animal apocalypse, slash our way through the God of War video game series as we take a look at the flawed and tragic figure of Kratos, and to honor the angriest man in video games, we ask each other, 'What makes you madder?'
