Episode 72 - Rocky

2/20/2018
More
In 1976, a former porn star made a low-budget movie called "Rocky" about an underdog boxer who randomly gets a shot at the heavyweight championship. The film went on to become the highest-grossing movie of the year, win three Oscars (including Best Picture) and, at last count, has spawned seven sequels. Sylvester Stallone plays Rocky Balboa, a punch-drunk 30-year-old who considers himself as a pro boxer because he takes the occasional fight at a local church athletic club. We're supposed to...

1991's tear-jerker "My Girl" ♪has got storm clouds on a sunny day It wasn't cold outside when they killed off Thomas J Well I guess you'd say What can make me feel this way? Dead kid (dead kid, dead kid) Talkin' 'bout dead kid (dead kid)♪ This nostalgic coming-of-age story would appropriately be titled "American Horror Story" with its ghoulish setting and the fact that it repeatedly bashes the audience over the head with disturbing events until they are left huddling in the corner,...

Episode 70 - Sneakers

2/6/2018
More
In 1992, the director of "Field of Dreams," Phil Alden Robinson, made a film called "Sneakers" with a far-fetched plot about an unconstitutional secret NSA domestic surveillance system designed solely for the purpose of spying on unsuspecting American citizens. It’s a relief that nothing like that could ever happen in real life. Robert Redford plays a wisecracking cool guy with a secret past who leads a ragtag bunch of misfits who specialize in breaking into seemingly impenetrable...

Episode 69 - Star Trek (2009)

1/23/2018
More
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It's 2009 J.J. Abrams-led mission: to explore strange new ways to anger fans of the franchise, to seek out new life and new civilizations that will waste their money on total garbage, to boldly go where no man has gone before or ever wants to go again. Chris Pine plays James T. Kirk, a slimy tool bag whose life trajectory gets wildly altered when a time-traveling genocidal maniac appears out of nowhere and forces...

Episode 68 - Shakespeare in Love

1/16/2018
More
One of the most overrated Best Picture winners ever, 1998's "Shakespeare in Love," about a cool-guy William Shakespeare going around plague-ridden 1593 London, tries to pretend this is about a character trying to find love, when any viewer can see he's merely a creepy con artist who's just trying to bang everything that moves. Joseph Fiennes plays William "Will" Shakespeare as the title character who says he's trying to find his muse, but he's just trying to get laid. Gwyneth Paltrow...

Episode 67 - Point Break

1/9/2018
More
In 1991, cool brah James Cameron and tubular dudette Kathryn Bigelow pulled down their pants and mooned the world when they created the beloved action movie "Point Break," which showed us all that some bank robbers aren't just criminals, but can also be one-with-nature radical surfers who love to skydive. Patrick Swayze plays Bodhi, the philosophical leader of the gang of surfing bank robbers who call themselves The Ex-Presidents. He and his floppy sun-bleached hair don't want to allow...

Episode 66 - Garden State

1/2/2018
More
Strap on your helmets (and your garbage bags) for a review of Zach Braff's zany but somber-seeming directorial debut, "Garden State." It's got everything you could ever want in a movie: paraplegics drowning in bathtubs, humping dogs, diplomas on ceilings and Sheldon from "The Big Bang Theory." Zach Braff plays Andrew "Large" Largeman, a twenty-something struggling actor who has been rendered emotionless after a lifetime of taking psychiatric medications following an incident where he...

Episode 65 - Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

12/19/2017

Merry Christmas, you nosy little perverts! 'Tis the season to steal your parents' credit card, check into the Plaza Hotel and befriend a spooky Central Park pigeon lady with a secret lair inside Carnegie Hall. That's right—it's time to dissect everyone's favorite childhood sequel, "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York." Macaulay Culkin reprises his role as Kevin McCallister, a sociopathic sadist who justifies his brutal torture of two hapless petty criminals under the guise of preventing a...

In this installment of our bonus segment "In Theaters," we give you our immediate reaction to seeing a new movie on the big screen. This time, we tackled the newest "Star Wars" episode, "The Last Jedi." We discuss what we thought of Luke Skywalker's story, porgs, milked aliens, and which child actor we think Supreme Leader Snoke looks like. **NOTE: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS** Quick Facts Release date: Dec. 15, 2017 Runtime: 2 hour 32 minutes Starring: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher,...

Episode 64 - Star Wars: The Force Awakens

12/12/2017
More
Two years ago in a studio not far away.... J.J. "Jar-Jar" Abrams rebooted yet another franchise with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." It's Disney's cynical ripoff of the original 1977 "Star Wars" plot, but it has a spherical R2-D2, an angsty, millennial Darth Vader with a slightly different lightsaber and a female Luke Skywalker. All of these decisions were unquestionably made in order to manipulate a whole new generation of children into begging their parents into purchasing a bunch of...

In Theaters: Lady Bird

In another installment of our bonus segment "In Theaters," we give you our immediate reaction to seeing a new movie on the big screen. This time, we tackled Greta Gurwig's solo directorial debut, "Lady Bird." The film, which follows a teenage girl as she navigates her last year of high school in Sacramento, California during the year 2002, currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and is surely on its way to Oscar glory. But does it deserve all the praise? Listen and we'll give you our...

Episode 63 - Pitch Perfect

12/5/2017
More
The 2012 hit film "Pitch Perfect," about dueling college a cappella groups is an "a-ca-terrible" combination of the movies "Dodgeball" and "Mean Girls," but instead of being funny, it is just a bunch of people lip-synching over-produced Auto-Tune vocals to songs we all rightly forgot about a while ago. This movie projectile vomits a slew of ignorant comments about rape victims, Asian-Americans, lesbians, Jews and deaf people. These are all played for laughs, but they forgot that laughs...

Episode 62 - When Harry Met Sally...

11/28/2017
More
We will not have what she's having! The 1989 Rob Reiner-directed and Nora Ephron-written vehicle "When Harry Met Sally...” ushered in Meg Ryan as a leading lady and has been a pox on all of our houses ever since. We know that this movie is fiction because it pretends 41-year-old Billy Crystal is a twenty-something Lothario who has slept with so many women that he may need to leave New York City. Billy Crystal plays Harry Burns, a supposed political consultant, and Meg Ryan plays Sally...

Episode 61 - Edward Scissorhands

11/21/2017
More
The 1990 fairytale "Edward Scissorhands" about an artificial man named Edward—an unfinished creation who has scissor blades instead of hands—is in and of itself a movie that's an artificial and unfinished creation. Tim Burton lathers the film with his usual coating of visual flair, but adds no substance beneath it. The picture leans hard on Danny Elfman's fantastic original score to try to convince the audience that there's some meaning behind all the pastel houses and forced romance....

Episode 60 - Pretty Woman

11/14/2017
More
Garry Marshall's 1990 blockbuster film, "Pretty Woman," is a Cinderella story, if Cinderella were a $100-per-hour call girl and Prince Charming were a Wall Street douche with daddy issues. The movie can't seem to decide if money is the root of all evil or if having a bunch of it solves everyone's problems. Julia Roberts plays Vivian Ward, your quintessential hooker with a heart of gold who is sometimes a naive Southern bumpkin but then randomly also a savvy, capable businesswoman who...

Episode 59 - Jurassic World

More
"Your [filmmakers] were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn't stop to think if they should." –Dr. Ian Malcolm The fourth installment of the "Jurassic Park" franchise from 2015, "Jurassic World," is yet another mediocre sequel to the original 1993 masterpiece. The story is unoriginal, the characters are annoying cartoons and the special effects aren't even as realistic as the first one, despite 22 years of CGI advancement. Chris Pratt plays Owen Grady, a former Navy dude who...

Episode 58 - Scream

10/31/2017

Happy Halloween! Back in the year 1996, famed horror director Wes Craven and the dude who made "Dawson’s Creek," Kevin Williamson, got together to produce an ultra-self-referential stabfest called "Scream." It led to three sequels as well as a TV series, and it launched the careers of some of the most annoying people the '90s had to offer. Neve Campbell plays Sidney Prescott, a virginal 23-year-old high school student who can inexplicably kick the ass of accomplished murderers twice her...

If you build it (a baseball field for ghosts who were banned from the major leagues for cheating) and you kidnap a civil rights activist, he (the ghost of your estranged dad) will come. As a fringe benefit, a bunch of sightseers will also show up so you can turn your home into a profitable tourist trap. The elaborate 1989 séance/time travel film, "Field of Dreams," was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, and is said to make grown men cry. It certainly made us cry, but for...

Episode 56 - The Cider House Rules

10/17/2017
More
Lasse Hallström's 1999 Oscar darling "The Cider House Rules" is crafted to seem like a heartwarming coming-of-age story about leaving childhood behind, falling in love for the first time and accepting adult responsibilities. However, under the schmaltzy score and eccentric characters, it's really just an incoherent pro-choice diatribe that ends up having nothing to say on the issue. Tobey Maguire plays Homer Wells, an orphan who was taught how to perform abortions against his will and...
