In this episode, we delve once more into the Bag of Destiny and wind up in the shitty version of the Marvel Universe (you know, the one with the mutants) with X-Men Origins: Wolverine! The most interesting part of this movie is probably all the unfinished bits that we got to see because it was a rough edit copy that had been bootlegged. Also, Megan rants a lot about nerd things that she is definitely not an expert on.
In this episode, we take a look at the liquor bottle flipping, Razzie Award winning, totally 80s Tom Cruise movie, Cocktail! It’s a movie in which many things happen but somehow also nothing happens. But hey – watch those Bacardi Rum bottles fly!
In this episode, we take a look at the 1968 comedy classic, The Odd Couple! Widely considered to be one of the best comedies of all time… we didn’t really like it that much. There’s no denying that there’s a lot of talent that went into the movie and it’s a classic set up of opposites attracting, but we think you get more bang for your buck with the tv show.
In this episode, we take a look at the 2017 graphic novel turned indie film, My Friend Dahmer! Megan thinks maybe things would have turned out differently if more people had asked the question, “Are you okay, Jeff?” But they didn’t… and a bunch of people ended up dead.
In this episode, we give in to the inevitability of the 1974 Sean Connery sci fi cult classic, Zardoz! There was no way we wouldn’t eventually do this one. The gun is good, the penis is evil, y’all.
In this episode, we take a look at the 1985 action thriller from Cannon Films, Runaway Train. It scored three Academy Award nominations and won Jon Voight a Golden Globe for Best Actor. It was based on a screenplay by Akira Kurosawa. It was nominated for Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Critics loved it. BUT IT WAS A CANNON FILM THO. Why bad air? Certainly not.
In this episode, we take a look at the 1978 Donny and Marie Osmond movie, Goin’ Coconuts! It’s a little bit of that one episode of the Brady Bunch when they went to Hawaii and a little bit of the Beatles’ film, Help, but with 100% more wholesome 1970s Osmond goodness. Megan was a little disappointed in the level of goons, but we were very impressed at Marie Osmond’s scream queen abilities.
Hey everybody! We’re back… and we’ve got another pick from the Bag of Destiny. This time it’s the 2010 film, Rubber, in which a tire comes to life, falls for a girl and murders a lot of people by blowing their heads up a la Scanners. It’s weird and exists for no reason. Does this mean there’s nothing to talk about? Certainly not.
In this episode, we talk about this year’s edition of B-Fest, a 24 hour movie marathon of dubious cinematic achievements that takes place at Northwestern University! We made it through most of the lineup (until Megan needed to leave for sanity related reasons) and it was overall a fairly painless experience. Did you go? What were your high points and low points?
In this episode, we take a look at Eric’s favorite childhood movie, Fantastic Voyage! Does it hold up after all these years? Let’s see what exactly helped put Eric on a path of science and medicine, shall we?
