Episode 58: Megaforce

In this episode, we take a look at the 1982 Barry Bostwick action movie, Megaforce!  It’s got flying motorcycles, super tight jumpsuits and a plethora of explosions.  And it’s a whole lot of big, dumb fun.  Megan and Eric kiss their thumbs at you.

Episode 57: Repo! The Genetic Opera

In this episode, we take a look at the 2008 splatterpunk rock opera movie, Repo! The Genetic Opera.  Biggest surprise of the viewing? Paul Sorvino can sing for reals, y’all. Megan explains why sometimes niche properties work much better on a live theatrical stage than on a movie screen.  Also, why people should stop trying to make fetch a thing, where fetch is weird stuff and a thing is a cult movie.

Episode 56: Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn 1 & 2

In this episode, we finish up the Twilight Saga with the fourth and fifth parts, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Breaking Dawn Part 2.  There’s a lot of parts and they’re filled with weird bizarre “love” things.  Join us for the final trip down sparkly vampire lane, where you can gaze lovingly on MANY wedding dresses, rings and other merchandising opportunities, see the It’s a Small World of vampires and enjoy Aro’s completely ridiculous line delivery one more time.  It’s REMARKABLE HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

Episode 55: Twilight Saga – New Moon and Eclipse

In this episode, we continue our journey through the Twilight Saga with the next two films, New Moon and Eclipse.  Megan is a fan of hot, shirtless werewolf boys, but even with all the toned abs of the world, these two movies are tough to get through.  We do, however, finally meet the Italian vampires and Micheal Sheen’s line readings as Aro ALMOST make us forget the pain of the watching four hours of rapid blinking, bickering and really depressing vampire backstories.  We watched ’em so you don’t have to.

Episode 54: Twilight

In this episode, we celebrate our first podcast birthday by taking a look at one of Eric’s favorite unintentionally comedic movies of all time, the big budget smash hit, Twilight!  Join us on a journey that includes sparkly vampires, rapid blinking and more relationship red flags that teenage girls think means true love.

Episode 53: And That’s How You Get Ants

In this episode, we take a look at TWO movies about those picnic ruining insects, ants! We’ve got giant ants with the 1954 sci fi film that is definitely not about communism, Them! and we’ve also got super intelligent hive mind ants in the 1974 hard sci fi film, Phase IV, that just want to tell us about circles and squares and maybe take over the world. And in case they happen to be listening RIGHT NOW – Megan and Eric would just like to welcome our new insect overlords.

Episode 52: Ice Pirates

In this episode, we take a look at the Robert Urich helmed space comedy pirate movie, Ice Pirates! It’s a big, dumb pile of pirate fun that is totally in on the joke and laughs at itself and its low budget. Also, Megan really like tiny burros and piglets and would suggest more movies make use of them.

Episode 51: B-Fest 2017

In this episode, we recap our experience at B-Fest 2017, the annual 24 hour b-movie film festival from A&O Productions at Northwestern University.  We survived almost the entire thing and run down which films we liked, disliked and (in Megan’s case) slept through.  For more information about B-Fest and its history, visit the official website online at http://www.b-fest.com

Episode 50: Head

In this episode, we take a look at the 1968 psychedelic music satire, Head! We discuss the Monkees, the strange circumstances that caused this film to be made (lots of acid is just ONE of the reasons) and why it didn’t do the thing they made it to do.  Also, we give you the gift of many Monkees songs, which are the ear worm songs of the gods.

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.
