In celebration of our favorite weekend (which we sadly weren’t able to go to this year), we watched a double feature of B-Fest movies from the 2018 lineup of films! First up, we saw a confusing live action Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote cartoon disguised as a western called The Villain, starring Kirk Douglas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ann-Margret’s boobs and a horse named Whiskey, which also included every 1970s character actor that Eric has on speed dial in his brain but you’ve probably never heard of. Our second pick was Dolls, starring the guy that took over the Puppet Master franchise and pretty much nobody else, which is pretty much just that one part of Barbarella Megan likes a lot and isn’t mad that she watched for 77 minutes. Happy B-Fest everyone!
We celebrate our 100th episode by finally tackling Megan’s white whale… Snowpiercer! It’s a special gift to us on this Cinema Supercollider milestone that we will never, ever, ever have to watch this rage inducing piece of filmmaking again.
In this episode, we look at the Stockard Channing made-for-TV movie about an ugly duckling turned beautiful swan out for revenge, The Girl Most Likely To…! When life gets you down, a car accident will fix everything, including your face. We also learn that all of those random electives you took in college, while worthless in day to day life, are actually perfect for expanding the skill sets of any aspiring serial killers out there.
Happy New Year, loyal listeners! Why huddle around your television sets to watch modern day football today when you could treat yourself to the sportsball of the future, like those seen in The Blood of Heroes and Rollerball? Those were the movies we watched for this week and they involve a lot more death than tossing around the ol’ pigskin does.
