Episode 49: Predators

In this episode, we take a look at the 2010 sci fi horror film, Predators!  It’s got a cast full of notable actors, including Adrian Brody and Lawrence Fishburne… for some reason, and it’s chock full of both classic and super badass Predators. It also teaches us that you should always keep an eye out for Topher Grace because he’s EEEEVIL, that Predators are apparently amateur detectives that solve crimes and that Eric can channel Barbra Streisand to make up songs about killing people.  Also, we explain some of the unofficial Cinema Supercollider drinking game.

Episode 48: The Avengers

In this episode, we’re talking about the Avengers!  Not the Marvel superhero Avengers, however, but the 1960s fan favorites from the BBC. We took a look at the actual television show (which we like!) and then watched the 1998 big budget film flop starring Uma Thurman and Ralph Fiennes (which we DO NOT LIKE).  Also, Megan gets angry about how movies and TV portray women on screen.

Episode 47: They Live

In this episode, we take another look at the acting career of Roddy Piper in the film that demanded that you OBEY, the 1988 sci fi film, They Live!  Eric has much to say about the politics of both the movie and how they mirror what’s happening in current times while Megan finally has a chance to talk about our real space overlords, the Reptilians.

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.

Episode 45: Krampus

In this episode, we take a look at the 2015 holiday horror film, Krampus!  We ask the question of “what happens when you stop believing in Santa and wish your family would fuck off?”  The answer is, of course, everyone is menaced by a hellish Christmas demon and its goons, possibly killed and probably forced to live out their days trapped in the mashup of a Norman Rockwell holiday picture and actual hell.  Also, Megan is sad and also has a bad Russian accent for reasons.

Episode 44: Two Front Teeth

In this episode, we take a look at the incredibly satisfying holiday horror comedy, Two Front Teeth!  Let’s spend Christmas with the Snows, as they embark on a hero’s journey that involves ghoulish elves, X-mas conspiracies and a vampire Santa. Also, Megan discusses the Meisner technique, and how you can use it to effectively portray bored extras and befuddled protagonists.

Episode 43: The Last Witch Hunter

In this episode, we take a look at Vin Diesel’s “Let Me Tell You About My D&D Character” film, the Last Witch Hunter!  It’s full of flaming swords, witch powder and reminds you how much better it was when it was called Hellboy and had an interesting plot.  We also ask the question, “Is there any movie that Michael Caine won’t do?”

Episode 42: Birdemic: Shock and Terror

In this episode, we take a look at another one of the heavy hitters of the modern landscape of truly, unintentionally, amazingly awful movies that is so wrong that it’s right – Birdemic: Shock and Terror!  Join us for the hero’s journey of Rod and Natalie as they go from multimillionaire and Victoria’s Secret model to two lovebirds on the run from a neverending stream of angry eagles that explode and are also full of acid somehow.

Episode 41: Super Seal

In this episode, we take a look at the 1976 children’s film, Super Seal!  Megan is convinced, however, that this is really a lost Werner Herzog documentary about a seal dying in the Mexican desert and/or an early draft of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.  Also, Megan may have had a few hot toddies that resulted in a gigglefest.  YOU CAN’T PROVE IT.
