Ep. 80 - "Dirty Pretty Things" (2002)

3/18/2020
What a difference a month can make, eh? Today's episode was recorded on Oscar Sunday, which couldn't be more apparent than now, given all the happenings 'round ol' planet Earth. That said, now you've got no excuse to hunker down and watch this week's movie, 2002's seemingly forgotten "Dirty Pretty Things". Despite its horrible title, this movie isn't about pretty things, though it could be said the seedy underbelly of humanity can make up for the "dirty" part of the title. The movie takes...

Ep. 79 - "Paris, Texas" (1984)

3/4/2020
This episode has been a long time coming. Returning guest Steve Phelan and co-host Chad Peter have been waiting to force fellow co-host Mark Heiliger into watching "Paris, Texas" for a good, long while now - and the time has come to do so. Unfortunately, or fortunately (if you're into this sort of thing), we had an additional guest on the podcast as well (one that wasn't happy about being on the podcast with us). Also be sure to listen for the addendum we've added at the end of the...

Ep. 78 - "Bumblebee" (2018)

2/11/2020
Oh ho ho, boy oh boy we bet you never saw this one coming. Chad and Mark invite guest (and actress) Kat Schmidt onto the podcast to help explain her love of the Transformers movie franchise, or specifically - 2018's "BUMBLEBEE". They deep dive into the WHY and WHAT, going so far as to attempt to explain why these movies are still being made - and why certain folks enjoy them more than others. (editor's note: after this podcast was recorded, it was announced that there's MORE Transformers...

Ep. 77 - "Ready or Not" (2019)

2/4/2020
Fasten your seatbelts, ladies and gentlemen, because we're going back - WAY BACK - to another decade. All the way back to... 2019, for a surprisingly fun soon-to-be-cult film called "Ready or Not". This might be on the borderline for deeming it "underrated" - after all, it made its money back and then some - but not everyone has seen it, so here we are. Specifically, for this episode, co-host Chad Peter hasn't seen it, so Mark is here to present it to him for the first time. Performers of...

Ep. 76 - "Anguish" (1987)

1/30/2020
Revisiting the podcast for the first time since "Lost Highway", guest Ryan Wick drops another batshit crazy movie upon the ears (and especially eyes) of co-host Mark. The rabbit hole they go down is so deep, not even Mark will make it out alive. "Anguish" has all but disappeared from public view, but naturally the guys stir it up and discover some rather squeamish topics - you know, like, EYES and EYE SURGERY. Fun things like that. Enjoy! Performers of note: Zelda Rubinstein, Michael...

Ep. 75 - "Under The Silver Lake" (2018)

12/28/2019
Is the sophomore slump a real thing? Can our 75th episode count as a sophomore effort? Mark and Chad devolve back into opening an episode with a quick discussion about STAR WARS - only they could derail their own podcast by discussing a topic that has nothing to do with their choice of "movie of the week". On topic now: David Robert Mitchell made his mark with a fan favorite of ours "It Follows" - and this follow-up had us waiting with some excitement... but then it kinda disappeared from...

Ep. 74 - "Tremors II: Aftershocks" (1996)

12/2/2019
Tremors is one of those sci-fi(?) franchises that just seems to keep on going... and going... and going... and... really we're not sure why, exactly. Or at least Chad doesn't. Mark, on the other hand, proudly brought Tremors 2: AFTERSHOCKS for this week's movie for the team to view & discuss. Are you a Tremors fan? ARE YOU?

Ep. 73 - "Sing Street" (2016)

9/30/2019
Sneaking out of Ireland in 2016, "Sing Street" made it across the pond to America and had a relatively decent success, considering most movies of a similar nature never reach much of an audience in America with the mass of content blasted through our eyeballs these days. Still, this movie was missed by MOST - and we're here to remind you - it's probably not the movie you think it's gonna be, and it's pretty damn good. From the director of "Once" and "Begin Again", "Sing Street" again...

Ep. 72 - "Cutter's Way" (1981)

9/17/2019
John Heard. The man. The myth. The le... wait, who? You'd recognize him from "Home Alone" as Kevin's dad, OR maybe you're one of the five people that saw "Cutter's Way" back in 1981 when it opened for United Artists' "art film" division "United Artists Classics". Heard leads the way here with a great performance as Alex Cutter. He is followed up by some solid performances by Jeff Bridges and Lisa Eichhorn. "Cutter's Way" is a film buried by its own film studio, partly because the studio...

Ep. 71 - "The English Patient" (1996)

9/4/2019
Okay, sure - this week's movie isn't exactly "underrated", considering it won ALL THE OSCARS in 1996, but hey - it still seems to have slipped under most peoples' radars, so here we are. Chad and Mark are back (and so very rusty at this whole podcasting thing), but gosh-darnit - they're gonna sit down and watch a movie together. Side note: my god, "The English Patient" has one of the worst trailers of all time. Performers of note: Ralph Fiennes, Kristen Scott Thomas, Juliette Binoche,...

Ep. 70 - "The Hudsucker Proxy" (1994)

7/29/2019
A podcast, you know, for kids! And you. The Hell With This(!) is back for a fun episode with guests Jake Lloyd and Alexandra Hoey (aka fellow podcasters on the Dragon Wagon Radio network). It's shocking, but neither Jake nor Alexandra have seen the Coen Brothers' CLASSIC film "The Hudsucker Proxy", so co-host Mark Heiliger has taken it upon himself to right that very wrong. Strap in, it's a good one! Performers of note: Tim Robbins, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Newman, Bruce Campbell,...

Ep. 69 - "Girls" (2012-2017)

7/20/2019
Ep. 69 - "Girls" (2012-2017) Dogs and cats. LIVING TOGETHER. MASS HYSTERIA. That's right - our movie podcast is doing something strange this week. We're talking about a TELEVISION SHOW. You've heard of those, right? After all, we're supposedly in the "Golden Age" of TV right now - so it's time we finally talk about it. And by "we", we mean co-host Chad Peter and first time guest, filmmaker Shana Gagnon. Shana talks about the importance of the show on so many levels - what it means to her as...

Ep. 68 - "The Ice Pirates" (1984)

4/29/2019
Howdy! Remember us? No? Well, shucks. Welcome back to another episode of THE HELL WITH THIS. Your hosts Mark and Chad have been briefly reunited to bring you a, uhm, podcast… where we talk about… things and stuff. This week’s “things and stuff” is an audience requested number, “The Ice Pirates”, a not-as-forgotten-as-it-probably-should-have-been film from 1984! The fellas also discuss the state of sci-fi (and possibly where “it went wrong”). Performers of note: Robert Urich, Mary Crosby,...

Ep. 67 - "20th Century Women" (2016)

1/11/2019
We're back for the new year! 2019! Episode 67. Cruising right along. This week Chad and guest Matt "Lank" Hingstman muse about their holiday vacations and Matt's movie selection, the wonderful Mike Mills film, "20th Century Women" from 2016.

Ep. 66 - "American Movie" (1999)

12/11/2018
This week's movie is a legitimate classic - a 1999 documentary entitled "American Movie". We're digging it up because maybe the world's forgotten it, or maybe you're just one of those folks who missed it at the time. In any case, it's a goddamned treasure - and you should see it.

Ep. 65 - "I Origins" (2014)

11/27/2018
This week Mark and Chad tackle a 2014 film that seemingly snuck right by audiences. What we can say is this: if you haven't seen the trailer for the movie: don't. The trailers stupidly spoil the film but, fortunately, Mark and Chad went in blind (to a movie about mapping the human eye... surely there's a pun here somewhere). As always, the first half of the podcast is spoiler-free - so if you haven't seen I Origins, come listen to the beginning of the podcast, then go watch the movie before...

Ep. 64 - "House On Haunted Hill" (1999)

11/20/2018
We made the mistake of picking a movie with an easily mistaken title. Is it "Haunting of Hill House"? Or "House on Haunted Hill"? We're not entirely sure, either, but this week we've chosen ONE of those to peruse and meander on. To make matters worse, Mark and Chad can't recall any of the names they reference in this particular episode. What year is it? Where are we? Who are you? Performers of note: Geoffrey Rush, Famke Janssen, Taye Diggs, Peter Gallagher, Ali Larter, Chris Kattan,...

Ep. 63 - "Mandy" (2018)

11/13/2018
Chad is back - just in time to take a swim in the pool of weird, man. This week the boys check out the 2018 film "Mandy", starring Nicolas Cage from a director that both Mark and Chad agree is one to keep an eye on in the coming years (Panos Cosmatos).

Ep. 62 - "Swiss Army Man" (2016)

11/6/2018
Podcasting guru Jake Lloyd (aka our corporate overlord) sits in with our only useful co-host (aka Mark Alan Heiliger - not to be confused with Mark Alan Highlander). The two of them combine their efforts to pull this week's movie out of a hat (actually). That movie just so happened to be 2016's fart epic "Swiss Army Man", which Jake loves and Mark hadn't seen yet. If you're afraid to watch this movie - maybe the trailer turned you off - just... give it a shot. Please. Do it. Ultimately, if...

Ep. 61 - "Master of the Flying Guillotine" (1976)

10/30/2018
Mark and first-time guest Chris Tonick wax on about their past days of working together, their combined love of "The House with a Clock in Its Walls" (the book and the movie, respectively) and their enjoyment of this week's insane film: "Master of the Flying Guillotine". Chad, on the other hand, is still on hiatus... because work.
