Listener Lucas Brown has sent us another batch of Tim-Tams from Australia, so we're going to try them! These are gelato-inspired Tim-Tams, which means there's a real gourmet feel to them. Plus, they're Tim-Tams, so they're already probably pretty good. See how they stack up! Also: We rank the best food at Dollywood!
For this year's holiday movie, we chose something that is only holiday-related in the most inexplicable of ways: 2017's Pottersville, a tax dodge disguised as a movie with an astonishingly accomplished and overqualified cast. Is it set at Christmas? Yes. Is it somehow related to It's a Wonderful Life? Kinda? That's tough to figure. Does it represent any of the good feelings associated with Christmas or It's a Wonderful Life? Not for a second. Pottersville is on Netflix, so watch along with...
We're back with the snacks, and trying an assortment of candy from Vietnam! Much like the Beijing Special Product bag from our first two specials, many of these didn't have readable labels, so we're flying blind. Will we come out OK? Listen and find out?
Did you miss us? We're back! And we're poppin' the Squad! That's right. We wanted to do something big after an unexpected break, and so we're bringing you the much-requested Suicide Squad for this month's show. It's on HBO's various streaming options now if you want to watch along with us.
We're back and we're snackin'! This month, we're trying several bars purchased at Kramarczuk's deli in Minneapolis! Many of them are wafer bars, and while that seems right up our alley, they're not all as perfect and beautiful as we'd hoped, though a few do manage to succeed. Learn about the conundrum of delicate milk along with us!
Brilliance or hubris? That's the question we're trying to answer with this month's Snack Situation special, in which we try several new Reese's Cups filled with stuff, including peanuts, cookie pieces and Reese's Pieces themselves. Results...vary. Plus, Matt tries a couple additional Reese's confections, and we give Butterfinger peanut butter cups a try
Is it an action movie? A comedy? An action comedy? Neither? These are the questions that we try to answer while watching 2016's Skiptrace (known in China as Jue di tao wang), a buddy travel movie starring Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville. We're still Chan for the Summer, but things get a little less sunny with this one, we'll tell you that upfront. You can watch along on Netflix if you want, but here's our advice: don't.
We're trying eight different, new(ish) flavors of Pepsi and Mtn Dew in this month's special! Specifically, we try: Pepsi Fire; Mtn Dew Black, White and Green Label; Pepsi 1893 Original, Black Currant and Citrus; and Mtn Dew DewSA. It's...an experience.
We're back, and it's Chansmas in July! As such, we're watching 2012's Chinese Zodiac, a sequel(?) to the Operation Condor/Armour of God series of films, though there's no major connection to the series. Hey, remember the last time we watched a Jackie Chan movie, and the ending was absoutely nuts? Well, get ready for that again.
Chris came back from his cruise to Cozumel with some Mexican snacks, so we're watching a movie that's been described as "Mexico's answer to Rocky"! The problem is that the movie isn't really Mexican and is much, much worse than Rocky. You can watch along with us on Hulu if you want to judge for yourself!
Listener CJ Kral emailed us to tell us about a lesser-known 2006 Jackie Chan movie called Robin-B-Hood. Here's what he said: "This movie's ending is one of the most shocking movie endings that I have ever seen. Seriously, the last fifteen minutes of this movie will leave you breathless and will give both of you guys a lot to talk about." He was not kidding. It may have been the craziest thing we've ever watched for Movie Fighters. Buckle up.
You voted, we watched! We asked on Twitter whether you'd prefer us to watch Beethoven's Christmas Adventure or a movie about a ghost who haunts a Vermont inn at Christmastime. The latter won by a landslide, so we fired up the Lifetime Original The Spirit of Christmas with high hopes of a Betrayal at the House on the Hill scenario. That's not what we got. You can watch along with us on Netflix, if you dare.
You demanded it, so we're watching it! That's right, this month we're challenging the fourth installment of the My Little Pony Equestria Girls series, Legend of Everfree! And you may find our reaction to it...shocking. The movie's available to watch on Netflix, so watch along with us!
It's Spooktoberfest, and cruel fate has thrown our newest film at us: 1972's Horror Express, starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing! It's been described as The Thing on a train, and that's pretty much exactly what it is, even though it takes a little while to really get up to speed. It also features two actresses who look so much alike we thought they were the same character through half the movie! Watch along with us on YouTube!
