In this episode, we take a look at the 1968 Otto Preminger LSD fueled film, Skidoo! Eric loves this mess, Megan found it pretty bewildering. It’s full of a bunch of middle aged stars getting hip to the hippies of the counter-culture and jokes straight from the Jackie Gleason Show. Acid trips are less confusing. Also, Megan incorrectly identifies the director of Sunset Boulevard (it’s Billy Wilder, but the famous quote is about Cecile B. DeMille.)
In this episode, we take a look at the 1997 David Mamet con game film, The Spanish Prisoner! It’s a lesser known Mamet property that uses Steve Martin in a serious role as a bad guy and Campbell Scott as a boy scout inventor duped by Martin’s smooth operation. The movie’s plot twists and turns in the usual way for a con game, but it’s an enjoyable ride. Also, GO WATCH GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS. Seriously.
In this episode, we take a look at the 2015 supernatural/psychological horror film, the Blackcoat’s Daughter! We’re kind of split in our opinion of this one – Eric liked it and thinks it’s a movie that more people need to see, but Megan found it kind of brutal and slow and unpleasant. It’s one of those films that’s more interesting to think about after the fact, though your mileage may vary.
In this episode, we take a look at our second Bag of Destiny selection, Mutant Chronicles! It was dreadful. It was full of horrible CGI. It was anger inducing. Damn you, Bag of Destiny.
In this episode, we take a look at the 2009 dark comedy horror film, Jennifer’s Body! Both Eric and Megan really liked it, even though the box office reception when it first came out seems to show that audiences at the time didn’t. It’s got decent writing, decent acting and some interesting twists on horror tropes that you don’t always see. Also, Eric thinks Amanda Seyfried looks like an alien.
In this episode, we take a look at the 1956 Roger Corman jewel heist on the bayou, Swamp Women (aka Swamp Diamonds)! It’s full of feisty female escaped convicts, swamp water and bad decisions. Also, Touch Connors… and all the ladies want to touch up on Touch, if we are to believe what this movie has to say.
In this episode, we take a look at the 1996 Pauly Shore-Stephen Baldwin vehicle, Bio Dome! What could be more charming than watching two annoying, obnoxious fuck ups destroy the hard work of environmental scientists? Why do they somehow have attractive, socially responsible girlfriends despite being annoying, obnoxious fuck ups? And why did Megan sort of like this film when she was in college, despite not remembering at least half of it? So many questions…
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!
In honor of the start of football season and the passing of the late great Burt Reynolds, we take a look at the original and remake of the classic football film, The Longest Yard! The original is great for its hard hits and unvarnished humor and the Adam Sandler remake does a good job of shying away from being a typical Sandler comedy and staying true to the source material while making slight adjustments to update problematic stuff for modern audiences. In either case, you get good sportsball action and a compelling underdogs sticking it to the man story. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?
In this episode, we take a look at the 2006 Len Kabasinski werewolf action movie, Curse of the Wolf! Eric has been mildly obsessed with this film since we first viewed it for a virtual screening over a year ago and has wanted to do it for the show ever since. Megan has movie amnesia to this particular cinematic delight as she can pretty much only ever remember that a lot of kicking people happens and there’s a fat man in shit stained underwear in it. So that’s a thing.
