The Meg featuring Drunk Erica - Episode 104

Welcome to episode 104 of The Chumpcast! Fan favorite Drunk Erica sat in for Brick this week as we discuss the most awkward movies to watch with your parents. We also discuss some news before diving into our review of The Meg starring Jason Statham. We’re stealing a question from Facebook this week. Sue me. We want you to replace the Infinity Stones from the MCU with other movie props that serve the same purpose. For example, we could replace the Time Stone with the DeLorean from Back to...

Westworld Season 2, Sicario 2, and Bad Anatomy - Episode 98

Welcome back! We’re getting dangerously close to episode 100, and that gives me great anxiety.

Incredibles 2, Brick's Love of Board Games, and Mark's Socks - Episode 96

Welcome to episode 96! We waited 14 years for a follow up to Brad Bird’s Pixar masterpiece The Incredibles, and it was well worth it. We also take time to yell at each other about board games, mark’s inability to match socks, and redundantly telling someone that you’re about to tell them something. We’ll be seeing Chris Pratt and some Dinosaurs in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom next week. In honor of that, we want your submissions for the WORST idea science has ever had in film or in...

Action Point and Upgrade Double Feature! - Episode 94

Welcome to a very special double feature episode! We saw both Action Point starring Johnny Knoxville and Upgrade from Blumhouse Tilt. One of them was garbage while the other was outstanding, but you’ll have to listen to figure out which is which. No spoilers this week!

Solo: A Star Wars Story and Brick's Unfortunate Night - Episode 93

Welcome to episode 93 of the Chumpcast! We had an interesting start to the night that involved a near-calamity for Brick, so you’ll have to forgive him for sobbing uncontrollably and repeatedly asking Mark to hold him like a toddler. He did eventually compose himself, allowing us to get to your excellent listener submissions as well as our review of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Spoilers from 54:15 until 1:11:00, but make sure you hang around afterwards for our weekly recommendations. We’ll...


Deadpool 2 and a Boy Band Homage ft Drunk Erica - Episode 92

Welcome to episode 92 of the Chumpcast! We’ve got a full Chump Cave this week as the crew is back with long time guest Drunk Ass Erica. It would be safe to call this our musical episode, even though the last thing I wanted to hear was a bad rendition of a 2000s pop song. More importantly, we discussed Ryan Reynolds latest box office killer, Deadpool 2. You won’t want to miss Brick trying to sell us on why it was better than Infinity War. Spoilers for Deadpool 2 from 1:02:45 until 1:31:25,...


Mickey O'Sullivan from The Chi - Episode 91

Mark and Smithers are both traveling this week so we’re pulling one out of the vault. Honestly, we weren't sure that this episode would ever see the light of day. From the jump, Mickey O’Sullivan and Smithers didn’t see eye to eye. We're not exactly proud of where it went, but we still think we got some interesting opinions on actors and their work. Credit to Mickey, he kept it real. Check him out on The Chi now available on Showtime. Also, keep an eye out for him in Captive State starring...


Westworld, Batman Ninja, Woop di Scoop di Poop - Episode 90

TINFOIL HAT TIME! Brick was banished from the cave this week, but that’s okay because we can mute his mic whenever we want now. On the heels of Avengers: Infinity War, no one had the balls to release any good movies this week. Instead, we talk about the recently released animated Batman Ninja as well as a deep dive into some of the prevailing theories of Westworld season two. For next time, we want to hear your thoughts on who in Hollywood might actually be a robot. Plenty of uptight...


Avengers: Infinity War Nerd Session ft. Chuck Load of Comics - Episode 89

Finally, the episode you've been waiting for! We nerded out REAL hard for this one with the help of Chuck from the Chuck Load of Comics YouTube channel. The first thing Brick said to me when Chuck left was “That dude knows his shit”. Make sure you find him on FaceBook and subscribe to his show at . We dive DEEP into this movie and discuss comic references, theories and all of our favorite moments and quips. Spoilers for Infinity War from 40:30 until...


Super Troopers 2, The Chicago Premiere, and Why? - Episode 88

Rampage, Video Game Rankings, and BEES! - Episode 87

Welcome to episode 87! The whole crew is back for the first time in a month thanks to another action flick starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Is there anything his gigantic oily biceps can't do?

Spoilers for Rampage from 52:20 until 58:20, but stick around afterwards for our weekly recommendations. Since we're seeing Super Troopers 2 for our next...


A Quiet Place Live from C2E2! - Episode 86

WE ARE (WERE) LIVE! Mark and Smithers spent all weekend live and intoxicated at C2E2 in Chicago and this was the result. We got to meet a lot of cool people and even talked to a few of them on the episode. There is some background noise here, but just consider it ambient noise.
