This week Star Wars starts to slow (solo?) things down, Telltale Games tells no more tales, we say goodbye to famed Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, we take a look at the history of Venom and talk about our feelings of a standalone origin movie without Spider-Man involved, and Steve forces Paul to think about 1990's.
This week we take a look at the dark sci-fi post World War III future of 1997 in John Carpenter's Escape From New York (1981), and then we dig into the not so dark future of rolling skating and dance fighting theme gangs with 1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982). Be prepared, bring your own homemade weapons.
This week we have some more fried food talk, the new Halloween trailer is hitting all the sweet spots, we see Skrulls (or do we?), we wish happy birthday to the best Batman, we talk about Matt Groening's newest animated series 'Disenchantment' and see if he has some magic left for his third show, and we find if Steve lays an egg while taking the Chicken Test.
This week we have have very involved talk about Fair food, we fall into a pit talking about plot holes, an important film is coming back to theaters, Spawn is getting some pratical effects love, we discuss Weird Al Yankovic, his decades long career, his underappreciated film UHF, and how he has been a very informative part of our lives, and to celebrate Labor Day, Steve has to figure out long it takes to do assorted tasks.
This week we take a look at James Cameron's other big 1980's sci-fi hit, The Terminator, and then we head to the far off future of 1997 which is full of acid rain, calculator wrist watches, and arm wrestling with 1986's Hands of Steel.
This week the Oscars try to tell us what is popular and what is art, Patrick Stewart makes it so on more Star Trek, CW has their Batwoman, we talk about judging a film on its own merits versus 20 plus years of expectations with 2017's The Dark Tower, and Steve asks Paul, which King is it?
This week Alf is crash landing into our homes again, Episode IX started filming, Movie Pass may be gassed, we take a look back at the second of the Christopher Nolan Batman films, The Dark Knight, on its 10th anniversary and talk about how it changed comic book films for good and for bad, and then Steve asks Paul WWBD? Also, a suprising amount of dog obedience and condiment talk.
We are celebrating Shark Week by looking at the original event that started it all, Steven Spiellberg's Jaws from 1975, and talk about how that first official summer blockbuster changed the movie industry forever. Then we take a look at not a killer fish, but a killer mammal with 1977's Orca. You will be amazed at how smart and revenge driven one whale is against Richard Harris.
Hey Folks! As San Diego Comicon happened this week, we wanted to take a minute (or 48) and talk about some of the big news, trailers, and odds and ends that came out of it. So if you love it when we just talk news, you are going to be in heaven. If not, then please forgive us and we will hold a boombox outside your window playing your favorite song until you do.
This week Creepshow gets it own creep show, there are going to be a lot of robins in the hood, Groot turns 51, we are joined by special guest Kevin from the Strange Highways podcast to take a look at the Mission: Impossible film series in anticipation of the upcoming 6th film, and we see if we can put together a crew capable of breaking into the MacGuffin Institute.
