Rabbit Movie Night!

Hey Friends!

So the bad news is that we don’t have a new episode this week… Eric has been fighting the good fight after having some surgery last week and is still healing up, so we weren’t able to get a recording session in while he was on the mend.

The good news is that we’re going to host our very first MOVIE NIGHT this Friday night, September 26th at 8pm CST via Rabbit, and you’re invited!  Rabbit allows you to share a viewing room with other people so that everyone can watch the same movie, TV show or even YouTube video together, regardless of where they are (and if they have Netflix).  The screening room also has a live chat feed so we can all riff and chat along together while the movie plays in real time.  It’s a leg up on the live tweet virtual screenings we used to do since you can drop in and out of the Rabbit screening room as you like or have time to do – you can also take it on the go by downloading the Rabbit app to your phone.  The whole thing is free to use, so we hope you’ll join us!

Sign up today and friend our account so we can send you a link to our room on Friday night!  We’re cinemasupercast on the website.  See you then!

Episode 131: The Love Guru

In this episode, we take a look at the first of our Bag of Destiny picks, the 2008 Mike Myers comedy, The Love Guru!  Pro: it was better than we thought it was going to be. Con: it was still really bad and our expectations were incredibly, incredibly low. DAMN YOU SCOTT

Episode 130: Bad Ben

In this episode, we take a look at the 2016 indie horror film, Bad Ben! It’s the first of several movies in the Bad Ben series by the film’s director (and star) Nigel Bach and he does a bang up job of making a low budget paranormal found footage horror flick that hits all the right notes of both that genre and the everyman style of YouTube vlogging.  Megan has declared him her number two BFF and wants to consume some sort of cheese covered snack food with him. #NACHOSWITHNIGEL

Episode 123: Doctor Detroit

In this episode, we take a look at the 1983 Dan Aykroyd nerdy guy turned pimp film, Doctor Detroit!  Our feeling is that this movie reads more like a series of sitcom episodes and less like a full fledged movie, but it has some high points including an A-Team of super capable escorts, the frenetic energy of Aykroyd and a tour of Jane Byrne’s Chicago on film.  Eric is a little disappointed by the whole thing, but Megan thinks if you haven’t seen it, maybe give it a look.

Episode 120: The Apple

In this episode, we take a look at the 1980 movie musical and attempt at biblical allegory, The Apple! It’s not a masterpiece, to be sure, but it’s full of campy goodness and holographic sparkles and big dumb fun.  The songs aren’t great and the lyrics aren’t subtle, but somehow it’s still a little confusing as to what the hell is happening. All we can say is… DO THE BIM

Episode 99: The Girl Most Likely To…

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.

Episode 91: Moon Zero Two

In this episode, we take a look at the “first moon western,” Moon Zero Two! It’s not high art, but it’s definitely fun.  Megan mostly wanted to watch it to talk about the Moon Fly Girls, and highly recommends everyone get their turkey choreography and butt feather costumes ready for Thanksgiving.

Episode 46: White Christmas

In this episode, we take a look at Megan’s favorite holiday film, White Christmas!  It’s a movie that is approximately 40% story/60% song and dance numbers which asks the question, “what do you do with a general?” once they’ve been put out to pasture.  Also, Megan wants to know who actually thinks buttermilk and sandwiches is a desirable midnight snack.
