If you ever wanted to see a 1994 Charles Bronson chasing tail in the Vancouver fashion industry, boy, have we got a movie for you. Then, we try and mostly fail to put politics aside in going to see the mixed bag that is the Eli Roth/Bruce Willis version of this classic tale.

Charles Bronson returns to NY to razzle the Foot Clan with some McCallister-esque booby traps, and then he skips on back to LA to solve America's cocaine crisis. Just say no!

Feb 18, 2018

In anticipation of Eli Roth's remake, Dan and Henry get super bummed out by Michael Winner's originals, a couple of gross rapesploitation movies about how helpful guns are. Come for the second amendment rants, stay for the Herbie Hancock and Robert Plant scores.

Henry and Daniel venture off to the multiplex to sit alone in the dark and watch the final Fifty Shades movie. Let's tie up some loose ends.

Feb 4, 2018

We're joined by Shandy to discuss the first entry in BDSM Twilight fan-fiction series 50 Shades of Grey. What will happen when we tumble into Christian Grey's office looking for some erotic thrills? Come find out. After all, we don't make love. We fuck. Hard.

Danny Boyle follows up his masterpiece about addiction in Edinburgh twenty years later with two hours of nostalgia and cool camera shots. One of us loved it and one of us hated it.

Jan 21, 2018

We discuss the era of Apatow, as we act totally normal and hilarious. Rogen. Hill. Segel. Baruchel. Starr. Heigl. Mann. Rudd. Fox. Yi. O'Dowd. Dunham. All the greats. 

Jan 14, 2018

We are joined by Real Weird Sister Martha Krebill (@realweirdmartha) to discuss a formative franchise in her life, but a brand new one to our intrepid hosts. Daniel, Henry and the future Martha Bartha get to open that Cage door, which leads to Gates (is that a clue?). 

Jan 7, 2018

Henry and Daniel diverge on the two latest Star Wars films. Prepare for some defense and some offense. There's only one thing that's certain: the Porgs are the best. 

Jan 1, 2018

First, we are forced to cover a cartoon pasted together with spaghetti and play-doh, and then JJ Abrams shows up to try to put the whole thing back together. Henry, we're home.
