7/18/2019

We've got something special for you Casual Movie Club-goers. For the first time ever, we're doing the sequel to a movie we've already reviewed! What better sequel to pick than a movie in our top 10 list, the sequel to Speed: It's Speed 2: Cruise Control! They say sequels are never as good as the originals, and "they" of course would be completely right. But, don't take our word for it. Take a listen to the episode, and of course, watch the movie. You get to see Willem Dafoe "play with his...

Episode 31 - Galaxy Quest (1999)

7/11/2019

By Grabthar's Hammer...what a great movie. We did a surprise movie from Brian this week, and his pick was Galaxy Quest. This movie combines everything you'd want to see: Aliens clapping vertically, and the film debuts of both Rainn Wilson (Dwight from The Office) and Justin Long (The "Mac" guy from the Mac vs PC TV ads). Listen to this episode, you are our last hope!

Episode 30 - Cadence (1990)

7/4/2019

What do you get when you cross 2 Sheens, some Larry Fishbourne, and a guy who doesn't talk much but can really sing? You get Cadence from 1990. Definitely check this movie out, it's well worth a watch, but even more so - this episode is worth a listen!

Episode 29 - The Thing (1982)

6/27/2019
More
Here on the Casual Movie Club, we did a thing! Well, we watched a thing. Not just any thing, but The Thing from 1982. This movie has all of the makings of a classic horror movie; Kurt Russell with facial hair, Wilford Brimley not talking about diabetes, and of course an alien not being pursued by Mulder and Scully. It's a quintessential horror classic, and one we certainly recommend watching!

Episode 28 - Requiem For A Dream (2000)

6/20/2019
More
Four different people, four different stories, one thing in common: addiction. Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem For A Dream" from 2000 shows the rise and fall of hopes and dreams with regards to battling addiction. This is a movie everyone should watch; whether you watch it more than once is up to you, but it's worth watching at least once to see the top caliber acting, unique visuals, and of course... Marlon Wayans helping to roll a living room TV set through the streets of New York.

Episode 27 - Whiplash (2014)

6/13/2019
More
Every now and then a movie comes along that grabs you in a certain way... like, it would make you want to hurl a chair at someone that wasn't doing things just right. It might make you want to scream at someone to keep playing until they draw blood... it makes you want to push people beyond their limits to get the absolute best out of them. The movie is Whiplash, and this one is one of our favorites. Don't believe me? Listen to the episode, you'll be glad you did....Oh, and that's not quite...

Episode 26 - The Room (2003)

6/6/2019
More
Picture it: San Francisco... the cable cars, the Golden Gate bridge, and a guy who looks like a cross between Weird Al and an off-brand Kenny G. You may be wondering what movie gives you this hugely sought-after combo? Why, it's "The Room" from 2003 of course. It doesn't get any better than this work of cinematic genius. The writing makes men's room graffiti look like it should win awards. The acting is so... well... why spoil it? Listen to the episode. You'll be sure to get a good chuckle...

Episode 25 - The Wraith (1986)

5/30/2019
More
This movie has the perfect ingredients for a classic 80s movie: 80s rock music, crazy-looking cars, cheesy dialogue, and of course...Charlie Sheen: The Warlock who's always winning. Oh, and of course, Randy Quaid. It really doen't get any better than "The Wraith" from 1986. Be sure to listen to this episode, or else Charlie Sheen might show up in a funny looking car and street race you while you're driving to the supermarket.

Episode 24 - Mrs Doubtfire (1993)

5/23/2019
More
Hello my dears! What do you get when you take a genius comedian, some very talented hair and makeup artists, and a gullible housewife who'd rather get a divorce than work stuff out? You get Mrs Doubtfire from 1993, of course! This movie sparked a very interesting discussion between John and Brian, it's definitely one not to miss. How on earth did Sally Field's character not realize her husband of 14 years, who was a voice actor, was just doing a character? You'll have to listen to the...

Episode 23 - The Human Centipede (2009)

5/16/2019
More
This is one of those movies where you'd rather the phrase "in one ear and out the other" actually applied. This is a movie where things go in one place, and out somewhere completely different. We're talking about, of course, The Human Centipede from 2009. This gem of a film was one we couldn't wait to do on our podcast, because it had everything from annoying college coeds to a mad scientist surgeon who seemed to know what he was doing. Despite the movie being described as "gross",...

Episode 22 - Footloose (1984)

5/9/2019
More
This week it's time to cut loose, and kick off those Sunday shoes because on the Casual Movie Club it's time to talk about Footloose, that smash hit from 1984. If you play the Kevin Bacon game, this movie helps you connect him to people like John Lithgow and Diane Wiest, or Chris Penn if you're into more obscure actors. Interestingly enough, this movie is based on a true story; the fact that a small town actually banned dancing. This episode is certainly not one to miss, because we talk...

Episode 21 - Pulp Fiction (1994)

"...Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will..." listens to this podcast! John and Brian are back with an iconic film, none other than Pulp Fiction from 1994. What comes to mind when you hear the name of the movie? If you're anything like us, you think of yet another movie featuring John Travolta's dancing, or Samuel L Jackson's quips involving the word 'motherf****r" - either way, this is one not to be missed.

All aboard the Atomic Train! This week we have another mini-sode in which John shares a recommendation for a great made-for-TV movie called "Atomic Train" from 1999. This movie stars Esai Morales and Rob Lowe, and has more than just a train and some atoms. Check out the mini-sode for sure!

Episode 17 - The Craft (1996)

It's that time again; "What time?" you ask, the witching hour! The time we conjure up some spells and sit through another movie for your entertainment! We watched "The Craft" from 1996 and believe us, this movie has it all. Big-mouthed high school girls, Neve Campbell and her mysterious scars, and of course, the levitating redrum rejects stirring stuff up in the forest. This movie was another winner in our books, but not of any reputable awards, so be sure to check out this episode, or we'll...

Minisode 16 - Blues Brothers 2000 Finisher

2/4/2019

We're shaking things up again this week with a solo episode of the Casual Movie Club. This time it's Brian reviewing on his own and instead of leaving well enough alone he decided to brave the rest of the nauseating movie we couldn't finish, Blues Brothers 2000. This movie takes even more turns to the fantastical than expected and disappoints even harder than the first two thirds with a vengeance. The only shining light is the musical performances and even that couldn't save this debacle of...

Episode 15 - Batman (1966)

1/28/2019

Holy movie review podcasts, Batman, it's....a podcast about Batman! We traveled back in time to 1966 where we saw the original caped crusader and his boy wonder fighting the world's most evil nemeses with everything they had at their disposal, as long as it had the word "bat" in its name! From the bat boat to the bat mobile, in the bat cave... we can't forget Batman dangling from the Bat Ladder and fending off the shark with the shark repellent bat spray! Listen to this episode, or you just...

Episode 13 - Blues Brothers 2000 (1998)

Where do we begin with this episode? No, seriously, where do we begin? Sequels usually have a bad reputation, and this movie holds true to that. If you're thinking of watching this movie, let us give you this advice: just listen to this podcast episode instead, and just watch the original "Blues Brothers" from 1980. Why? Well, you'll need to listen to find out.
