It is once again Spook Time and thus we are covering movies where folks are bloodied up and killed. This time, we have the spookiest set of movies yet. Even the writer/director is a murderer!
Call him Snake. Call him Plissken. Just don't be piss him off. We're back with another Carpenter classic this week, along with its divisive follow-up that flopped fairly hard.
We celebrate Norm Macdonald by covering a pair of Adam Sandler movies that he isn't in.
Sweet outro by P.Dot, featuring Alan Silvestri.
We watched so much television this week! And we still got hit with a Jaden Smith movie!
Daniel-san and Mr. Miyagi open up Mr. Miyagi's Little Trees, while thwarting a revenge plot. After that? Enter: Swank.
The saga of Daniel-san and Mr. Miyagi begins. Thanks to Patron Mikey Graf.
A sequel comes only one year later, featuring diversity, a tropical setting and Jennifer Love Hewitt's singing career. Then, a ghost fisherman or whatever that was.
Hewitt. Prinze. Gellar. Phillippe. Galex. Sampras or whatever. Fisherman guy. Supportive Black Roommate. Spooky Heche. All your favorite I Know What You Did Last Summer characters are discussed this week on The Franchise.
We post up in the early days of the Wasteland this week, where police stations still function like normal. Is Mad Max 2 called The Road Warrior?
We're back! (A dino story). We finally get to wrap up this extended trip and further discuss our feelings on the Coogs.
Since there was no new episode this week (for the first time ever, mind you) we thought we'd give a little treat and release an episode from the bounds of patreon.com/thefranchise
Ah, an excuse for Henry to do impressions. And Daniel learns to love the Coogs.
So these Bloodsport movies got pretty nuts this week but we mostly talked about the main guy's wife's lawsuit against the city of Santa Monica.
A discussion of JCVD's healthy years, a ranking of Newts and some very important Kumite ruminations. Meet Frank Dux.
We revisit ancient-ass 41 year-old Demi Moore, before reckoning with a post-reckoning version of the concept. Also, I watched that 2011 TV version that nobody remembers.
Lucy Liu and my girl Drew, Cameron D and Destiny.
I can't believe Henry let me wax on about David Boreanaz for as long as I did.
Probably too much singing in this one. Brandon Lee rulz.
An interesting display of the exact value that Emily Blunt and Denis Villaneuve each bring to a film.
Look at that title. This is definitely the episode that is finally going to get us into the AV Club's "Podmass" feature. Us and Conan. Let's goooooooooooooo.
Back to the hockey well, with Paul Newman and the Hanson Boys making like a team of Tom Wilsons and acting like a buncha dicks on ice.
Whither thou Austin O'Brien? We cover two delightful coming of age pieces, which came out in the early 90s but were set in the early 70s. Chlumsky!
Shut Up Time joins us to discuss the Toymaker and the Clockmaster or whatever it is. These films prove to be mildly divisive!
We finally engage with Robert Rodriguez on the main feed, as he gathers ideas from all his greatest influences (his kids, George Lucas, Austin Powers, his own segment of Four Rooms) to create a new kid klassic!
