If you like timely pegs for classic movies, you’ll love this week’s Frotcast about the 1982 Ridley Scott classic, Blade Runner.

We couldn’t get the Frotcast gang in the same room this week, but, I do have some interviews to share. The first is with SNL’s Kyle Mooney and Dave McCary, who starred in (Kyle) and directed (Dave) Brigsby Bear, a strange yet sweet movie about a kid who’s raised off the grid watching a TV show that his father has made just for him. We get deep with Kyle and Dave about the filmmaking process, and about San Diego-based comedy, something they have in common with the Frotcast. The second is...

Luc Besson’s filmography includes such classics as La Femme Nikita, The Professional, The 5th Element, and… uh… Lucy, that one where Scarlett Johansson accidentally ingests some drugs and becomes the human embodiment of the galaxy brain meme.

Do you remember the good ol’ boy movies of the 1970s? The ones that celebrated a guy, who maybe wasn’t particularly handsome, or smart, or heroic, but he loved sweet cars, was always up for a good time, and inexplicably surrounded by hot willing women? Well Mike Sacks remembers those movies, which is why he wrote ‘Stinker Lets Loose,’ the novelization of a “lost” 1976 CB radio classic about a cross-country trucker sent to deliver a shipment of Coors to the president — accompanied by his...

Drew Magary from Deadspin/GQ (whose latest novel, The Hike, drops on paperback in July) by this week to talk Big Summer Camp, Fargo, and whether sports reporters are more obnoxious than film critics. We also talk Netflix’s Roger Stone documentary, Get Me Roger Stone. Is it not ironic that the guy who brought the “cuck”-shouting alt-right to national prominence was once run out of Washington over a scandal about letting other men have sex with his wife?

Lost City of Z author David Grann’s new book, Killers of the Flower Moon, is about the mass murder — through gunshots, bombs, and poisoning — of almost the better part of an entire generation of Osage Indians in the teens and 1920s, carried out in order to inherit their lucrative mineral rights. Originally hailed as one of the FBI’s first and defining successes, Grann’s investigation uncovers for the first time the true extent of the “Osage Reign Of Terror,” which wasn’t just a single...

Frotcast 330: Fate Of The Furious, With Joanna Robinson And Brian Grubb

4/20/2017

As our former co-host Bret says, “I don’t actually believe most people want freedom or fulfillment. Most people want to die barfing from eating a thousand Doritos Locos Snickers Icecream Tacos while jerking off to a giant bug zapper that says ‘TITS.’” It seems to me that this observation applies especially well to The Fate Of The Furious, a movie so excessive it’s kind of exhausting. At least, that’s what I think. My guests Brian Grubb (formerly Danger Guerrero) of Uproxx and Joanna...
