BaconBit: Glass Review

It all comes down to this. After years in the dog house, M. Night Shyamalan is finishing his unique trilogy with an unusual movie that could make or break his comeback streak. But will Glass live up to the hype? Jacob hasn't seen it yet, so we sent him to an institution that will take good care of him, but Kent, Joel, Patricia, Dennis and The Beast are here to discuss a sequel that has been in the making for 19 years. And if you're feeling a little fragile, don't worry, the first part of our...


Episode 187: Best & Worst Movies of 2018-ish

Season five is alive! And Baconsale is back to tell you about the best & worst movies that we watched last season.

BaconBit: Aquaman Review

Surprise! Yes, we know we already did our season finale of Baconsale, and yes, we're all trapped in rubble after the cave-in, but we couldn't let the year pass without talking about Jason Momoa's abs -er, I mean Aquaman! After all, this film is a culmination of Joel's challenge to Kent back in February during our "Too Many Spoilers" BaconBit. It's also a chance to see if Kent will maintain his DC bias, even though they're becoming more Marvel-like with each movie. And just in case you...


Episode 186: Season Four Your Consideration

As season four of Baconsale draws to a close, we're taking a look back at all we did this year. We're giving out finger boops like candy as we discuss our favorite moments (Mom show!), the best episode art (did someone say teleportation fumes?), our biggest regrets (veggie burgers), how many babies were born (SPOILER ALERT: Kent is pregnant), behind-the-scenes stories (binge-watching Hitchcock) and goals for the next season (sibling show?). And as we wrap up another season of this podcast,...


Episode 185: Deck the Hallmark

Baconsale is counting down to Christmas with an episode dedicated to Hallmark original films and other made-for-TV holiday rom-coms. Kent, Joel and Jacob left the big city and traveled to a quaint town where we watched some of your suggestions and we're now ready to review them. And after a musical montage where we decorate a tree and go ice skating, we take a Hallmark channel quiz and guess storylines based only on the title. Look! It's snowing! Tell your quirky best friend it's time to...

Jacob has been talking to Baconsale about The Last Kingdom (Kingdom of Heaven?) for some time now in private, and we finally agreed to let him talk about The Last Kingdom (Fallen Kingdom?) on this BaconBit. He has watched the whole thing on Netflix and he's excited to pitch it to you, the listener.

Don't Worry, Be Happy, because Baconsale is finally going to Whip It and finish our 80s one-hit wonder tournament!

Nevertheless, we put our Heart and Soul into this Funkytown of new wave, pop and rock music from 1980s and The Promise is we'll declare an ultimate winner and finally end this NeverEnding Story. Come On Eileen, don't be Too Shy. Press play! Print the advanced 80s bracket at...


Episode 182: Woman Crush Wednesday (on a Monday)

Hey fellas! Since we did a Man Crush show earlier this year, we felt it was only fair to give the ladies equal time. So, on this episode Baconsale, we're going to talk about our favorite females. We also brought back Lindsay, a real-live woman, onto the show to keep us in check and make sure we don't cross any lines, such as Kent saying one of his picks has a "broken rodent face." Listen as we crown such categories as Girl Next Door, Classically Beautiful, Best Smile, Most Attractive...

Episode 180: 20 Cinematic Questions with Casey

Casey Smith had an idea. He wanted to know if Kent and Joel could guess what movie he was thinking of through a simple game of 20 questions, so we invited him to join us on this episode to give it a shot. What we found out is that Jacob likes to pick obscure movies, Joel doesn't have a good poker face and Kent is fiercely competitive when his film cred is on the line. Press play to see if our patron can stump Baconsale!


BaconBit: The Haunting of Hill House Review

We couldn't let this Halloween season pass without discussing one of the most talked about Netflix series of the year, The Haunting of Hill House. If you haven't heard about it, all you need to know is that it stars Carla Gugino and that kid from E.T., and apparently it's so scary that it makes people pass out. Kent, Joel and Jacob watched it, regained consciousness and now they're ready to talk about what they thought about this ghostly family drama. And if you haven't seen it, don't worry,...


Episode 179: Choose Your Own Fast Food Nightmare

As we're wrapping up the Halloween season, Baconsale decided to take a journey into one of the most disturbing places of all: Jacob's mind. Jacob has written another Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-style game and is placing Joel and Kent in the middle of the horrifying action. Listen as they make dangerous decisions with each roll of the die and battle iconic movie monsters and a demented fast food mascot in a parallel reality. My dear demon, be my listener now, I plead. Press play!


BaconBit: A Nightmare on Burger Street

As soon as Burger King announced their Nightmare King—a green hamburger that is reported to cause bad dreams—we knew we had to try it. We also threw in the Frozen Fanta Scary Black Cherry slushie, just for good measure. But will these creepy fast food concoctions invade our peaceful slumber? Or is the only scary thing how many calories they have in them? Press play to hear everything (and we mean everything) about what happened after we ate this Halloween-themed burger.


Episode 178: Return to Pitch Mountain

WARNING! If this episode gets out of hand, it's not our fault. We asked you, the listener, to send in horror movie pitches and the results were…interesting. We got everything from horrifying tales of skinwalkers to strange stories about singing CPR dummies. And after reading (and sometimes mocking) each pitch, Kent, Joel and Jacob are going to decide if the project gets green-lit or not. Press play to join us in your descent into madness!


Episode 177: Scary Stories Told in the Dark

It was a dark and stormy night in the Baconcave, so we decided to share some of our favorite selections from Alvin Schwartz's notorious children's book series, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Kent and Joel take turns reading such classic tales as "The Hook," "The Babysitter," "The Haunted House" and "The Ghost with the Bloody Fingers," all while trying their best to not be freaked out by Stephen Gammell's horrific illustrations and Jacob's indifferent attitude. Dim the lights, gather...


BaconBit: First Man Review

5….4….3....2….1….Blast off! Kent and Joel saw First Man, the Neil Armstrong biopic, and they're ready to let you know what they think about it. Will Ryan Gosling's good looks and Damien Chazelle's directing win Kent over? Does Joel feel like the film is unpatriotic? Can there be any spoilers for a historically-based movie about the first man to walk on the moon? Press play and find out! And, for some reason, the first part is spoiler-free.

We're also ready to share with you our Baconsale-approved vampire movies, including everything from Nosferatu to Dracula Untold. Babe! I need you to press play on our...


BaconBit: Venom Review

The world has enough superheroes and not enough podcasters critiquing superhero movies. In this BaconBit, Baconsale is ready to review Venom, starring Logan Marshall-Green- uh, we mean, Tom Hardy. But will this movie be dark enough for Kent, even though it's not rated R? And will Joel be satisfied with a Venom movie that doesn't have Spider-Man in it? As always, the first part of our review is spoiler-free. We are Baconsale. Press play before we bite your head off!
