In this episode, we take a look at the 1994 action adventure movie about men hunting men, Surviving the Game! Ice T stars as a guy that is tired of your bullshit and also of a bunch of dudes hunting him; everyone else is trying their best, especially a particularly clear-eyed Gary Busey who does a stunning Monologue for Young Actors performance.
In this episode, we talk about the cult nerdery favorite, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising. It was inevitable people – we play nerd games and Megan still hosts an RPG podcast on the side. WE CAN’T HELP OURSELVES. Come enjoy an episode where Eric valiantly tries to keep Megan focused on talking about a movie about a bunch of people playing D&D and not about actually playing D&D.
In this episode, we take a look at the 1989 sci fi adventure film, Slipstream! Here’s the thing – this has a good movie in it, it’s just not the main movie and it’s definitely not the action movie. It’s a shame that the producer and director couldn’t figure that out and peppered the whole thing with dumb fight scenes and airplane footage. Also, Mark Hamill is nearly unrecognizable with bleach blonde hair and a bad attitude (and that’s not a bad thing, just an observation).
It’s part two of our Richard Mogg movie double feature! This week we take a look at Teenage Slumber Party Nightmare, where three 20something high school students have a slumber party, watch a porno, eat a bunch of super girthy hot dogs and eventually get killed by the world’s least dangerous drill wielded by the world’s oldest 15 year old. We have more questions for Pat from Canada and Eric is really super hungry for hot dogs, ya’ll.
In this episode, it’s the first of a two part look at the films of Richard Mogg! Who’s Richard Mogg? We’re not 100% sure, but he made a bunch of films, one of which is Massage Parlor of Death, a heartwarming tale about a woman seeking to resurrect her lost love with the help of a plucky hooker on a camp cot covered in somebody’s Mom’s not so great tablecloth and the contents of the canned tomato aisle from the grocery store.
In this episode, we talk about the notorious 1988 big budget flop, Ishtar. It’s not good, y’all. It’s just… not good. So not good. At all.
In this episode, we take a look at the 1988 comedy horror film directed by Frank Henenlotter, Brain Damage! It’s a heartwarming tale of boy meets penis monster, boy gets addicted to penis monster’s hallucinogenic brain juice, penis monster manipulates boy so it can murder people and eat their brains. Megan wants actors to know that you can always say no to being offered the role of “Man on Toilet” who dies by dildo attack to the head. #justsayno
In this episode, we take a look at the 1991 Vanilla Ice star turn, Cool as Ice! It’s an artifact direct from the 90s, chock full of dumb dialogue and a dumber plot, plus one of the most confusing houses in any film ever, that sort of looks like Peewee’s Playhouse barfed up something by Memphis Design Group. They have a romantic date at a construction site, there’s a kidnapping and also talk about Ronis. WORD
In this episode, we take a look at both the 1935 and 1982 versions of She, fantasy adventure movies based on the works of H. Rider Haggard! The 1935 film tells a competent story filled with decent performances, including the only starring role of Helen Gahagan Douglas, as the titular She Who Must Be Obeyed. The 1982 movie is a dumpster fire, but Megan really liked the birds in that one part.
In this episode, we take a look at one of Ed Wood’s contributions to movie making with the Bride of the Monster! This is one of his collaborations with Bela Lugosi, who looks and sounds like he’s having a blast being on camera again, even though this would prove to be his last speaking role on film. Plus, Tor Johnson lumbers around as Lobo, and Megan evaluates his worthiness as a quality goon.
