Episode 127: Raising Hell & Other Problems

1/17/2020
More
This time on GBW we're talking about sixteen films of varied quality and what a batch of weirdness, mainstream and outright junk it is! Josh took multiple trips to the theater (the theater!) to give his takes on the latest STAR WARS and UNDERWATER, Kevin Bacon is a bullying jerk, a body jumping monster causes havoc on a train, there's a female version of the EXPENDABLES courtesy of The Asylum, river rafting goes sex comedy, Christian Slater proves he isn't much of an action hero, we take...

Episode 126: 2019 Recap

1/1/2020
More
It's the end of a decade and for our first episode of 2020 we're doing our annual recap of the previous year. We both pick our five favourites of 2019, list some honourable mentions and tell you all the movies we're looking forward to in the coming twelve months. Did any of your choices make our lists? Is Josh sure to choose something totally obscure? Will we have any of the same titles? Just how many genre films made the cut? You'll have to tune in to find out but, first up, we'll fill...

Episode 125: Lethal Weapon Franchise

12/13/2019
More
It's time for us to dive back into franchise territory and this time instead of Chuck, ninjas and robotic cops we've decided to tackle a series that was a surprise hit when it began in 1987 and only continued to be more and more popular. But does it deserve such mainstream love? This is a question that needs an answer and we sat through all four films (in a compressed space of time) to try and figure out why this buddy cop series pairing Mel Gibson and Danny Glover with Richard Donner at...

Episode 124: The Craven

11/22/2019
More
After doing episodes on such favourites as John Carpenter, John Landis, Tom Savini, Tobe Hooper and others we realized that we were missing one of horror's luminaries: Wes Craven. From his early beginnings working with Sean S. Cunningham, his days in the XXX film industry, his reinvention of the horror landscape not once but twice, directing Meryl Streep to an Oscar nomination, and everything in-between we take a look at the man and his films going over our favourites and why we feel his...

Episode 123: 70's Kids Flicks

11/8/2019
More
Because we love delivering episodes that seem super weird coming from a podcast focused mostly on cult, horror and exploitation film we've decided to revisit our youth. Specifically our under ten years. Being kids of the 70's/80's we grew up through a crazy time where a lot of the things considered children's entertainment would probably not fly these days - as witnessed by a few movies on our lists! We've each picked five films we grew up on that made a lasting impact on us and it's quite...

Episode 122: Halloween Party

10/26/2019
More
All Hallow's Eve is nearly upon us and during this time of tricks, treats and ghouls in the night we've decided to each come up with a list of five movies that would make perfect viewing for any Halloween get together you and your friends might be planning. Our only restrictions were that they had to be of the horror-comedy ilk and that they had to play well to a crowd. The results? A whole lot of zombies causing havoc, a late night TV hostess, an adaptation of a cartoon strip, a loving...

Episode 121: Full Moon

10/11/2019
More
Formed in 1988 from the ashes of Empire Pictures, Charles Band's FULL MOON has been delivering all sorts of b-movie madness in their thirty-plus year existence. It's a ride that includes killer puppets, demonic toys, freaks, shrunken heads, miniature humans and even evil bongs(?!). We welcome back past guest, Vince D'Amato, to talk about what Full Moon means to us and have each chosen five of their releases we think you should check out if you want to know just what a Full Moon experience...

Episode 120: Mill Creek Entertainment

9/27/2019
More
If you're looking to fatten up your physical media collection and/or are curious about the wild, wild world of cult and exploitation films, it's easy to fall in love with Mill Creek Entertainment. When they're not releasing multi-film sets or complete TV series, they are giving us blu-rays of various cult oddities. This why we've decided to shine the light on this budget label with both of us each picking five of their releases we believe you should pick up to get an idea of just what Mill...

Episode 119: Wheneasyridermetwickermaninasatanicpanicatsleepawaycampwiththebadasses

9/13/2019
More
We're back from hiatus and do we have a batch of films for you! In the month we've been off we've taken a lot of trips to the theatre, watched some questionable entertainment and built up a lot of resentment towards Disney (warning: rant within). We both doubled up on two bonafide classics about hitting the open road and pagan rituals, Chris lets you know if READY OR NOT is worth your time, Josh watches a western-lite with one of the best pairings in 70's cinema, there's a whole lot of...

Episode 118: Twenty Years Ago [1999]

8/9/2019
More
In the first of what we're planning to be an annual series we've decided to look back at movies that have crossed over from the "teens" to adulthood by turning twenty years old this year. First up is the last year of the 90's. A year where Y2K freaked everyone out, Shakespeare in Love won Best Picture at the Oscars (and made us collectively groan) and many films helped kick off a new influx of copycats - here's looking at you, The Blair Witch Project. For this episode we've both chosen...

Episode 117: Alligators, Hitchers, Pinhead & Lifetime Movies

7/28/2019

There ain't no cure for the summertime blues... except movies. We've watched a whole slew of films in the last few weeks and want to tell you all about them as we tackle 18 movies as Josh checked out Alexandre Aja's CRAWL, a bear has a picnic with humans, a duo of slasher flicks of suspect quality, two vacations courtesy of National Lampoon, some Jess Franco nunspoloitation, an Albert Pyun action movie that looks like Die Hard but isn't, and Chris insisting on watching not one but three...

Episode 116: Horror Music Videos

7/10/2019
More
For the last thirty-plus years we've been witness to many inventive, creative and groundbreaking music videos but now we here at GBW have decided that there can also be a disturbing and/or horrific side to them. Which is why we've each decided to pick our five favourite horror-related music videos. Covering various genres and with such things as murderous kids, doom-laden movie clips and dark industrial sounds these videos are ones we think do the genre proud. However, you're not going to...

Episode 115: Movies Are Our Drug

We're addicts just looking for that next fix. We want it all the time. We'd do almost anything to have it. It's a problem. We're talking about movies. For this episode of GBW we're talking 16 films of varying quality including art deco horror revenge by way of Vincent Price, a couple of made-for-TV movies from the 70's that just don't deliver, Chris continuing to search for a truly great 2019 horror film, Josh heading to prison for one of his favourite discoveries of the year and lots lots...

Episode 114: Arrow Video

6/14/2019
More
Because "physical media is dead" (yeah, okay) we've decided to tackle another boutique label that's been delivering the goods since 2009 in the U.K. before coming over to the North American shores in 2014. If the movie is off-beat, cult, horror or something you won't find outside of a Vinegar Syndrome release then chances are Arrow Video has put it out. From unleashing oodles of 80's slashers on the unsuspecting public, giving older Italian and Japanese cinema the kind of respect it...

After a three week gap your co-hosts Chris and Josh have returned with a plethora of films they've watched in the in-between time. In fact, we've got 19 movies to talk about to deliver you three hours of talk about action, horror and... syphilis? In preparation for his upcoming New York trip Josh gives TAXI DRIVER a re-visit, we gave each other "homework" with two films involving bank robbers and prison, Chris gets even closer to his goal of never having to watch a CHILDREN OF THE CORN...

Episode 112: Our Defining Years (1986)

As two guys who have loved movies for as long as we can remember we recently decided to try and pinpoint the exact moment that films went from being just something you would watch on television or go see with friends on the weekend to an outright obsession, What year made the biggest impact on us and threw us over the edge and what movies were involved in fueling this lifelong love of all things cinema? For part two, your co-host Chris takes a look at the year that defined him: 1986. From...

Episode 110: So Much Sports!

4/13/2019
More
Why is that that even guys like us who don't follow it, watch it on TV, or participate in sports tend to love watching the endless amount of movies about them that have come out? Is it the second-hand adrenaline? The triumph of the underdog? Our attempts to seem macho by saying, "Dude, Friday Night Lights is rad!"? We'll never know. However, what we do know is, we dig sports movies and we've both picked five of them that we think you should check out. We've got some washed-up athletes, body...

Episode 109: TriStar Pictures

3/28/2019
More
Because we like taking chances and have a desire to be more niche than we already are it's time, just like the last episode about Las Vegas, to try something new by focusing on a specific film company. TriStar Pictures and their iconic flying pegasus logo has ushered us through many an entertaining movie and usually guaranteed fun genre-like movies with the slightest of Hollywood sheen on them. Which is why we're each picking our five favourite films to be released by the company. However,...

Episode 108: Sin City

What better way to deal with both of us feeling ill when recording by talking about a place where the party never stops: Las Vegas! That's right, Sin City itself. Where the drinks are cheap, the gambling is plentiful, the strippers are crazy and the neon is bright. To try something new we're taking on an entire city in film form by talking about what films either set in or that spends some time in the outrageous desert oasis that are worth checking out. We're talking De Niro, some Elvis...
