UNT 76: The John Wick Series

A film series based on revenge, murder, secret societies and... puppies? Yep. So gas up your Mustang and break through the concrete in your basement, because it’s time to talk about John Wick. With the third movie of this Keanu Reeves film trilogy (so far) in theatres, intrepid UNT assassins, Jared and Tim presented their marker to Greig and made him binge all three films in a week, and in the same time, John Wick killed a lot of people. But since these movies are more than meets the eye,...


UNT 75: Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is finally here, and we made sure we did whatever it takes to bring you the best podcast we could. And if we failed, well, we’ll just go back in time and fix it. As we brought together a cavalcade of unlikely movie reviewers, spanning the cosmos and reality, itself, we broke down the incredible characters and the mind-bending plot of this latest film, as well as stopping along the way to go down some dark, parallel tangents of our own. Even Howard the Duck turned up at one...


UNT 74: Shazam!

If you’re as Unfunny as Ulysses, as Nerdy as Neptune and as Tangential as Tartarus, then episode 74 is perfect for you! Join us as we remain pure of heart and evoke the powers of Shazam! (The movie, at least.) On this episode, we delve into the Captain Marvel / Shazam naming controversy as well as ponder the similarities of a certain Eternian hero, before diving staff-first into the latest DC superhero film that isn't afraid to be fun. Billy, Freddy, Mary, Darla, Pedro and Eugene all...


UNT 73: The Umbrella Academy

Do you have the super-strength and the body of a gorilla? Can you throw a knife with expert precision? Maybe you’ve heard a rumor or can speak to the dead or maybe your body contains hideous, tentacled creatures? Or perhaps you can simply teleport (sometimes through time) and are now trapped in the thirteen-year-old body of your former self. If any of that made sense to you, you’re probably familiar with The Umbrella Academy, the latest superhero/black comedy from Netflix. Tasked by their...


UNT 72: Captain Marvel

With Captain Marvel now in theaters, the UNT team takes a closer look at the 21st film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a podcast that is all Captain, all the time. Special guest, Kacey Spivey (What’s Trending, The Blonde Jokes) joins us to discuss the movie, including Brie Larson and the recent ratings-bomb scandal, the #metoo movement, Marvel perfecting the de-aging effect and yes, that Stan Lee tribute. No, you’re crying. With MCU Easter Eggs galore, hold onto your butts, bust out...


UNT 71: Office Space

Last week we celebrated Batman’s 30th, so this week we decided to stand around and sing in one, monotonous voice to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mike Judge’s cult classic, Office Space. This show has it all. Superman III, Kung-Fu, Michael Bolton. And that’s just the actual movie. Wait until Tim starts talking about his Pieces of Flair. So set aside your TPS reports, pass the cake, join us in our dream to do nothing and watch as we systematically take our frustrations out on the printer...


UNT 70: Batman (1989)

That’s right; the Batman movie from your youth is now 30 years old. In what is probably going to be our first look back at just one of the many seminal, influential movies of 1989, we returned to Gotham City to review all things Keaton, Burton, Basinger... and yes, Nicholson. Even the worst-ever Commissioner Gordon got a mention. But then, our intrepid Bat-Dads and Robin(ovitz) dared to speculate about the future of Batman, since now that Ben Affleck has stepped aside, we need a new Dark...


UNT 69: Clerks The Animated Series

Since it was Tim’s 37th birthday (in a row), and since we already covered Kevin Smith’s filmography back on our immortal 37th episode, what else could we do but celebrate the animated version of Clerks for our unprecedented Episode 69? (Niiiice.) Since Greig and Jared finally caught up on this series (that only aired two episodes before being banished to the freezer that is straight-to-DVD-purgatory), sit back as Tim takes us on a magical journey that transcends the boundaries of...


UNT 68: Glass

What do you get when you cross M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable with M. Night Shyamalan’s Split? Why, you get M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, of course. Okay, I’m sick of typing Shyamalan now. Anyway, for our latest episode, we welcome friend of the show, Mike Dipasquale to analyse and review the new, hotly-anticipated movie... Glass. So avoid water at all costs, step into the light and hold onto your motherf**king butts, because UNT 68 is about to bust out its capes (and rain ponchos), erase...


UNT 67: Aquaman

Every day since the release of Batman v. Superman, Tim has walked from his lighthouse to the end of the pier, gazing wistfully at the ocean as he longs for the return of his beloved sea king. And each of those days, Jared has been at the bar, laughing at Tim for holding out any hope for a DC movie. And now, Jason Momoa has arrived — wet, glistening and mostly shirtless — with a billion-dollar international hit Aquaman movie. So who's laughing now? Probably still Jared. The whole crew comes...


UNT 66: Bumblebee

Travel back to the 80s with us as we grab a Hot Dog on a Stick, crank up the Stan Bush and squeeze into the back of a Volkswagen (we’re looking at you, Kevin Smith) for the latest offering from the Transformers franchise... Bumblebee. With Tim still MIA in the sub-Atlantic, we invited fan-favorite, Transformers aficionado and all-round nostalgia critic, Yoshi, back on our show to give his thoughts. And boy did he... Everything you wanted to know about Transformers fandom is touched on in...


UNT 65: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Get your THWIP on, with not one, not two, but a multitude of Spider-Men (and women), as we dive mask-first into the new animated feature, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Friend of the show, Mateo Morales returns to explain exactly why he named his son Miles (you heard us), Greig and Jared argue about... sorry, ‘ponder’ the future of the Tom Holland Spider-Man series, and of course, we gush over the phenomenal animation techniques used in bringing this film to life. All this and more on an...


UNT 64: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

The lights are up, the egg-nog is ready, the mistletoe has been hung and most importantly, the Jewish member of our team asked us to review National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. So we did. Our bah-humbug trio of Christmas elves set aside their year-long surliness to bathe in the glory of Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo. (Okay, mostly Bevery D’Angelo.) We reminisced about this beloved Holiday classic, with the 25 000 Christmas lights, yet another recast pair of Griswold children and of...


UNT 63: Creed Vs Creed II

Hey yo, we didn’t hear no bell, so like... we thought we’d get together and go the distance to talk about the new films revital... reinvigor... uh, re-imagining the Rocky Series - Creed and Creed II. Special guests, Teek Hall and Mega Ran join us from the Mat Mania Podcast to help break down both films, gush over all things Philly and peruse those old photographs of Dolph Lundgren and Grace Jones. You’d have to be punchy not to get excited for this one, so break out your boxing gloves, ramp...


UNT 62: Daredevil Season 3

Kick back, take it easy and settle into your five (or is that six?) superior senses, as we take a slow ride into Season 3 of everyone’s favorite Netflix Defender – Daredevil. We welcome back fan-favorite, Yoshi to the Unfunny Nerd Tangent team, as he and our trio of Foggy podcast Kingpins try to turn the (Karen) Paige and hit the Bullseye. Or Poindexter. Whatever. Thanks to Tim, we may have broken the mould on this one, so get to your confession booth, call your mom (hopefully not at the...


UNT 61: Planes Trains And Automobiles

As Thanksgiving approaches, your favorite Unfunny travel companions rug up in their winter coats and dive into a classic comedy from the 1980s - Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Our fearless trio share some of their own horrific travel stories, before the two Americans explain the importance of getting home in time for Thanksgiving to the lone Aussie. Greig and Jared may have inadvertently stumbled onto the secret origin of Tim's Veronica Mars obesession, Korg returns, we all ponder what's...


UNT 60: Beetlejuice / The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Ghost with the Most turned 30 this year, and Jack Skellington looks great at 25. So let's talk about all the weirdo icons that came out of Tim Burton's head, shall we? Your favorite Bat-Dads reunite to reminisce (and in Greig's case, give some first impressions) on the gothic god of gritty, Tim Burton and his seminal films, Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Our tremendously terrible trio of petrifying, portentous podcasters delve into all things black-and-white-and-stripey,...


UNT 59: Venom

It took Sony over ten years to make it, but they finally got their Venom movie out in theatres. Critics of course, hated it, but what did WE think of it? Well, WE sat down and discussed the movie, its villain, its somewhat oddly-sexy moment, as well as its possible connection to the MCU. WE also went on some serious tangents with topics like Cameron Diaz, Little Shop of Horrors and Pink Unicorns popping up in conversation. So check out UNT 59 – Venom, because WE said so... or risk rolling...


UNT 58: The Predator Series

What’s better than one ‘Yo Mama’ joke? A whole UNT worth of them! With the newest addition to the franchise, The Predator, out in theatres, we sat down for our usual ‘Group B’ therapy session and discussed, reminisced and hypothesized about all things Predator. We welcome newcomer and Yautja expert - Vance into the fold. Jared and Mateo compete for the best/worst ‘Yo Mama’ jokes. Greig wants to see more from Olivia Munn (it’s not what you think), while Tim’s Porta-Potty-related PTSD has him...


UNT 57: Saga

Hey nerds, are you looking for your next obsession, something on the level of Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, or even Star Wars? Pause the Netflix, head to your local comic-book shop and pick up Saga. This epic sci-fi fantasy from writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Fiona Staples has everything — sex, drugs, war, weird aliens, more sex, friendship, betrayal, rocketships, even more sex, cool weapons, magic, talking animals, gut-wrenching death and (as DATES viewers know) #robotdicks. Best of...
