We kick off A Merry Mediocre Christmas this week as we take a look at one of the most iconic Christmas films of all time in 1990's Home Alone. Join Riley, Cal and Kassi as they talk about why movie violence doesn't work in real life and why Fuller is the greatest character to exist in the Home Alone canon.
We are celebrating our boi Brendan Fraser cracking the half-ton this week as we take a look at arguably his most iconic role outside of Ben from Scrubs in 1999's The Mummy! Join Riley, Cal, Kassi and self-proclaimed Mummy expert Scott as we spend way too much of this podcast talking about just how good Brendan Fraser is. Any more episodes with a Fraser film and we might as well become a Fraser fan-cast!
We are jetting off this week as we take a look at the 2004 film The Terminal! Join Riley, Cal and Kassi as they discuss how the story behind the film and why Tom Hanks plays such a convincing Eastern European.
It's all about the toons this week as Riley, Cal, Kassi and Kyle take a look at the 2003 film and spiritual successor to the masterpiece that is Space Jam in Looney Tunes: Back In Action. Join us as we talk all things meta and why Brendan Fraser is a true master of the fine art of cinema, especially in this movie.
This week we take a look at the third film in Sam Raimi's other masterpiece trilogy, 2007's Spider-Man 3! Join Riley, Cal, Brad, Kassi and Matt as they discuss whether Eddie Brock truly is trash, why a fence isn't a good deterrent to stop people breaking into a molecular transformation facility and why this movie wasn't bad, but just dealt bad luck.
It's back to regular programming this week as Riley, Cal, Kassi and Charisse take a look at the 2008 musical smash hit Mamma Mia, pondering such questions as whether ABBA truly exists in this universe, whether singing songs smashes the space-time continuum and why Pierce Brosnan was hired for a musical film despite being unable to sing.
Spooktober 2018 concludes with our look at one of the most influential horror films in history in Friday the 13th. Join Riley, Cal, Kassi and Matt as they discuss why the film is so influential, how paddles work as effective guards against machetes and why Kevin Bacon can't see dead bodies at eye-level.
Spooktober 2018 continues as we take a look at the scariest Kevin Smith movie to come out in 2014, Tusk! Join Riley, Cal, Kassi and Brad as they talk about how great the song Tusk is, Brad's love for Kevin Smith and the KSPU and why the scariest thing in this Walrus-based horror film is Johnny Depp.
We kick off our Spooktober specials by taking a look at the first sequel to the classic 1984 film A Nightmare on Elm Street in A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge. Join Riley, Cal, Kassi and Brad as they try to make sense of this cult classic and wonder who gets billed for Freddy's rampant destruction of fine china and beach chairs.
The Mediocre Movies crew asks two questions this episode as they look into the enigma that is 2004's 50 First Dates: Why has this film stuck around in the memory of Riley, Cal and Kassi, and was Rob Schneider in costume as a Hawaiian offensive back in 2004? We try to answer both while also trying to figure out a way to make this movie into an Oscar-worthy picture involving Adam Sandler and honestly both seem like a big ask!
We are back! After a long hiatus and a period of watching nothing but Space Jam on VHS, the Mediocre Movies crew are back for a second run! Join Cal, Riley, Brad and Kyle as they talk 1992's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, in a film we totally didn't pick just for the thematic use of Mediocre Movies: The Return.
After a ‘short' hiatus, we are back with a brand new episode! We look at House Bunny, a film that divided the podcast, with what seemed offensive to some, but fun to others. We will try to be back with more regular episodes. Advertisements
What can be said about the Australian films Wolf Creek and Wolf Creek 2? Not enough for a podcast each, evidently. We dive into both films this episode in a double whammy, and hope that John Jarratt isn't listening.
An All-Star cast, double roles with Jack Nicholson, and Tom Jones singing, what could go wrong in this sci-fi comedy? Quite a bit, evidently. Listen to the crew talk about the "Mars Attacks", acknowledge our fan and listen to Kyle rant about how the podcast is a terrible idea.
