episode 27: Episode 27: Runaway


It's the other Michael Crichton movie about robots running amok. Yes, after Westworld (but before Jurassic Park) Crichton wrote and directed this tale for the big screen, where Tom Selleck fights an evil Gene Simmons (is there any other kind?) and his le...

episode 26: Episode 26: Running Scared (2006)

episode 25: Episode 25: Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon


SHO NUFF! That's all that needs to be said about this stone cold CLASSIC starring the one and only Taimak and the late great Vanity, but somehow T.L. Foster and I manage to talk for nearly 90 minutes about how great this movie is. Because it's really gre...

episode 22: Episode 23: Ghost World


Ghost World isn't a movie about ghosts, it's a movie about teenage isolation, misanthropy and self-hate, which are actually way scarier than anything supernatural. The totally awesome Maddie Copp and I talk about this early-2000s classic of malaise, go o...

episode 23: Episode 22: The Legend of the Stardust Brothers


Ever wonder what would happen if a Japanese filmmaker decided to make their own tribute to Brian De Palma's Phantom Of The Paradise, while throwing in a bit of The Who's Tommy and possibly a slice of the Faustian disco musical, The Apple? Well, wonder no...

episode 21: Episode 21: Ravenous


You are what you eat, and today Sonya Ballantyne and I are eating the late-90s cannibal western megabomb, Ravenous. Well, we're not so much eating it as discussing its troubled production, portrayal of First Nations people, and what the hell metaphor the...

T.L. Foster wanted to talk about Gymkata, so today we are talking about Gymkata! Legendary for being "so bad it's good" but is it really just bad? The Kurt Thomas gymnastic vanity project gets all the discussion is deserves, and then some!
