We're talkin' Terms this week! Those of endearment that is. Lotsa singin' and yappin' about good ol' fashioned families! Is Terms a classic? Is James L. Brooks a great filmmaker? Is The Evening Star a pile of horseshit? Listen to find out.

Apr 8, 2018

THROW YR DIAMONDS IN THE SKY IF YOU FEEL THE VIBE!!! But seriously, James Bond transforms into an Asian man and then throws Crispin Glover's Dad off a cruise ships. Multiple Blofelds. Multiple cats. A whole lotta boning. 

Apr 1, 2018

Our Bond coverage continues with a possible masterpiece about a fat guy who's terrible at both golf and Gin Rummy, followed by a bloated epic about a bunch of randos moving really, really slowly underwater.

Mar 25, 2018

007 time, friend! Hank and Daniel dig deep into the Connery/Lazenby era with a couple globetrotting romps featuring a load of boning down hard!

In preparation for the new Alicia Vikander vehicle, Henry and Daniel do a deep dive into the Croft Manor with a couple of Jolie flicks. Is she good? Who's better--Daniel Craig or Gerard Butler? The answer may surprise you! WHERE'S YOUR HEAD AT AT AT AT AT!!

Mar 4, 2018

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. 

Feb 25, 2018

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. 

Feb 11, 2018

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. 

Jan 29, 2018

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.

Dec 27, 2017

Skin is better than sand and Revenge of the Sith is better than Attack of the Clones. These are the two truths we will now live by.

Dec 27, 2017

It's The Franchise Holiday Special! Merry Christmas and Happy Life Day! And R2-D2 as R2-D2!

Dec 18, 2017

The Ewoks brutalize the Star Wars saga. Then, 16 years later, Jar Jar eats its remains. Yippee!

Dec 10, 2017

Here it is! The Franchise to end all Franchises! Hear an early recording of George Lucas discussing The Star Wars with Steven Spielberg! Then, stay for Henry and Daniel discussing one for the pantheon. 

Dec 3, 2017

Joe Johnston cobbles together something that resembles a movie. Then, the franchise reboots to the tune of a one and a half billion dollars. Might there be merit in one or both? 

Nov 27, 2017

Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType, of Rob Has a Podcast, Parade.com, Survivor Historians and lots of other great podcasts) takes us all the way back to the Jurassic age! Meaning those Spielberg dinosaur movies from the 90s. We're gabbing Goldblum and jabbering Jackson and one of us even knocks Neill! Hang on to your butts.

Nov 20, 2017

Christian Toto (@HollywoodinToto), from the Hollywood in Toto podcast and website, joins us to discuss a tale as old as time: Ancient Egyptian white lady vanishes into thin air, meets aspiring sculptor, bones him after he builds her to be a department store mannequin. We've all been there. Then, it happens again! The only thing tying these two events together? A flamboyantly gay black man named Hollywood with really cool sunglasses and a knack for choreography.

Nov 13, 2017

Special guest Jan Martino joins us to discuss the cult classic Blade Runner (at least 2 versions!) and its belated sequel. Is one of us a Replicant? Is there voiceover? Did any of us watch Soldier? Tune in to find out.
