234 - Discount DVD Bin - TREMORS 2: AFTERSHOCKS

For some ungodly reason we decided to punish ourselves by watching straight to video sequels all August long. So this is the start of our latest miniseries, Discount DVD Bin! That exclamation point is there to make things sound exciting. What’s up first? The straight to DVD monster movie sequel that wasn’t enticing enough to bring back Kevin Bacon, TREMORS 2: AFTERSHOCKS.

233 - Action Mount Rushmore - PUMPING IRON (1977)

If you’re looking for some kind of low brow movie podcast for idiots, keep moving pal, because we’re talking about a documentary on this bad boy. That’s right, we’re smart as shit. Our Action Mount Rushmore month finishes up with the most Austrian head on our monument, that of Arnold Schwarzenegger. It’s Mr Olympia versus an Eyetalian Hulk from Brooklyn known as Lou Ferrigno in the 70s bodybuilding doc PUMPING IRON!

232 - Action Mount Rushmore - THE GLIMMER MAN (1996)

July is when we do our Action Mount Rushmore, where we watch a JCVD, a Stallone, a Seagal, and a Schwarzenegger. This year in specific, we’re doing Mount Rushmore two-handers, where our dudes share top billing with another actor. Caught up? Good. Because this is a very special episode of the podcast… it’s our first watchalong! What that means, is instead of watching this week’s movie (THE GLIMMER MAN) and then listening to the podcast, you’re going to get it ready to go and then push play and watch it with us… it’s the only thing we had any time to get together this week! Also, it’s the closest you’re ever going to get to hanging out with the hosts of this podcast, which some people have described as “Hell on Earth.” So, get THE GLIMMER MAN ready, pause it when the Warner Bros. shield pops up, and then prepare to press play 23:13 into the podcast. Sounds complex? Don’t worry, we drunkenly talk you through the whole procedure during the show. Everything will come out in the wash.

231 - Action Mount Rushmore - ASSASSINS (1995)

We’re really committed to this Action Movie Mount Rushmore two-hander thing, where we’re watching movies where our top 4 action heroes share top billing with another theoretically as large star, so that means we had to spend our day today sitting through and talking about ASSASSINS (1995). It’s one of those movies where Stallone is trying to play a well-dressed and well-spoken sophisticated type, so thank heavens Antonio Banderas is also in it sweating his ass off and acting like a swarthy lunatic. Saved the movie, quite frankly.

230 - Action Mount Rushmore - UNIVERSAL SOLDIER (1992)

Unless you’ve been living under a goddamned rock for the last couple years, you know that July is always the month where we celebrate our Action Mount Rushmore. We watch a JCVD, we watch a Stallone, we watch a Seagal, and we watch a Schwarzenegger. This year we’re going to zhuzh things up a bit by theming things further. We’re talking Mount Rushmore two-handers, where our titans of action share equal billing with another badass of equal-in-the-moment stature. First up in the rotation is Jean-Claude Van Damme going toe to toe with Dolph Lundgren in a movie about government-created Frankensteins going haywire, UNIVERSAL SOLDIER (the OG).

229 - The Dog Days of Summer - THE GREY (2011)

It’s the last week of our big dog-themed event, ‘The Dog Days of Summer,’ and we’re flipping the script on you by talking about a movie where dogs and humans are decidedly NOT best friends. As a matter of fact, we’re talking about a movie where a bunch of blood-thirsty wolves wage war against that gigantic Irish fuck Liam Neeson. It’s 2011’s bleak, depressing flick about how we all live alone and are destined to die alone, THE GREY. Enjoy!

228 - The Dog Days of Summer - TURNER & HOOCH (1989)

If you like listening to podcasts where the hosts talk at length about dog sex all while doing constant impressions of Tom Hanks yelling, then this is the episode for you! Our June event ‘The Dog Days of Summer’ continues with a discussion of that other cop and a dog movie that came out in 1989, TURNER & HOOCH.

227 - The Dog Days of Summer - A BOY AND HIS DOG (1975)

We’re just going to apologize in advance because this is the rapiest movie we’ve covered yet.

226 - The Dog Days of Summer - K-9 (1989)

It’s post Memorial Day, so we’re sunbunt, we’ve got bellies full of hot dogs, and we’re ready to start slacking off. Is it cool if adults start taking summer breaks too? Regardless, ain’t nobody taking a break from podcasting. It’s a new month so we’ve got a new miniseries to start. All June long we’re celebrating ‘The Dog Days of Summer’ by talking about dog movies. To kick things off we’re getting right to the point and addressing the big one. The ultimate dog movie. The elephant in the room. Jim Belushi playing a tough guy cop alongside a rambunctious mutt in K-9. This was the flick that kicked off the whole Belushi era that was the early 90s, and we’ve got opinions!

225 - The Cannon Canon - LIFEFORCE (1985)

Okay, so we spend an inordinate amount of time discussing the female lead’s body this week, but in our defense, this movie features about 40 minutes of full frontal nudity and we challenge anyone to not be stunned by the quality of it. It’s the final film in our Cannon Canon retrospective, Toby Hooper’s naked space vampire epic, LIFEFORCE (1985). Starting next week we plan on kicking off an entire month where we talk about dog movies, so we expect the discussion to become far less filthy. You can start looking forward to that wholesomeness now (unless one of the flicks distracts us with some bomb-ass dog titties, no guarantees).
