Finally The Franchise has come back to Rocky! We both saw this weeks ago and we finally got around to talking about it. 

Dec 17, 2018

Henry finally gets to cover the Nolan Batman movies! I'm legitimately concerned that he's just going to be finished with the show after this. So why not come and listen to them? Also, featuring a special appearance by JGL and an attempt to put Alfred in his place once and for all. Plus, Christopher Nolan rankings!

Dec 10, 2018

We say goodbye to the Schumacher era with a Schumacher ranking and a chilling discussion about a really cool movie. Then, Christopher Nolan shows up and Henry gushes for a really long time. 

Dec 3, 2018

Tim Burton jizzes a zoo, we watch a cartoon and Jim Carrey won't sit down. A trio of Bat-films.

Biff! We talk Adam West and Burt Ward. Then we rank every Tim Burton and try to sort out the relative merits of Arli$$.

Nov 19, 2018

Martha Krebill (The Real Weird Sisters) joins us once again to discuss the Wizarding World. But put dumb old Harry Potter to the side. It's all about Newt Scamander now, baby! We discuss Gay Dumbledore, Dickhole Depp and just how many Dumbledore boys there are out there. 

Nov 12, 2018

It's a river of slime! We learn what Baby Oscar is up to these days and discuss the relative merits of Janusz and Vigo. Then, we mansplain Paul Feig to you and discuss just what was going on with that reboot.

Nov 5, 2018

We rank every Bill Murray movie, chat about Ivan Reitman and discuss the titles of the new Avatar movies while Henry nerds out hard over one of his favorite movies of all time. Also, a deep dive into the ultimate ghost blow job.

Nov 2, 2018

We FINALLY get to see Freddy molest some kids. Then we ranked all the Nightmare on Elm Street movies. Won't you join us as we wrap up October?

Oct 29, 2018

Wes returns to sketch out Scream and also to save the world from an ancient evil force who looks like Robert Englund or whatever. Then, we finally get our old friend Jason back. We just wanted to take another look at him.

Oct 15, 2018

We rank the Arquettes. Also, we dig into two more Nightmares Upon Elm Street. What won't Robert Englund do? Whither the Fat Boys? Does Freddy sleep? So many questions answered. (Sorry it sounds like this. Technical Diffs this week).

Oct 7, 2018

Spooktober is finally here and we've decided to cover this Robert Englund child murder octilogy! First, Henry checks out the original for the first time ever and Daniel compiles a Wes Craven ranking. Then, we get our finest leather gear on and watch a crazy sequel with a predatory gym teacher. 

Oct 1, 2018

It took us forever to get to this one, like a cruise ship leisurely riding the open surf into a small resort community. Pop quiz, hotshot! We answer the big questions: Is Keanu good? Is Sandy B.? Dennis Hopper is, but what about Willem Dafoe? Was UB40 wiped out in an explosion? All this and more on The Franchise. 

Sep 27, 2018

Resident Predator expert Aaron Farinelli (whalefall.com) joins us once again on this bonus episode to discuss the already-forgotten Shane Black entry in the series. Where does it rank? Plus, Henry learns of Shane Black's sex offender friend live on air! 

Sep 22, 2018

We say goodbye to our Harry Potter coverage (for now) a day early! (Enjoy!) We'll answer all your burning questions: Did Lavender Brown survive? Do we like Alfonso the best? Who is Turtle in Harry's entourage? Just how many Weasleys are there??? Plus, a Harry Potter ranking!

Sep 16, 2018

Tim Ahlin joins us (disrupts us?) to discuss his vasectomy. We also occasionally bring up these two Harry Potter movies, one of which Henry was way into. Tim unveils two new theme songs and he and Henry stonewall Daniel throughout. It all ends up being a pretty good time. 

Sep 9, 2018

The Real Weird Sisters turn off the niceties and come on to do some straight-up Franchise ranting! You'll get to hear the name "Alfonso" spoken in withering tones. You'll learn whether Henry understands what Wormtail means. You'll even find out whether Alice Asleson and Martha Krebill are Team Edward or Team Jacob. It's all right here on our longest and bestest episode ever. 

Sep 2, 2018

We pop over to Platform 9 3/4 to take a chugga chugga choo choo trip all the way to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, with its overbearing, biased-as-fuck headmaster Albus Dumbledore. We talk about the books and the crazy casts of these movies, and discuss whether Quidditch makes sense and whether Americans would like it. Here's a sock.

Aug 26, 2018

We take a trip to Nilbog this week, in what somehow became our longest episode to date, to discuss Troll and Troll 2 with special guest Aaron Farinelli (Whale Fall). But don't worry. Our double decker bologna sandwiches will surely protect us from the evils of vegetarianism. Plus, a special appearance from a certain ornery Italian filmmaker! 

Aug 19, 2018

A Tony Scott ranking. Visits from Garry Marshall, Penny Marshall and George Lucas. A ranking of everything Jon Landis has created, from An American Werewolf in London all the way down to Max Landis. What a podcast this is.

Aug 12, 2018

We rank every Eddie Murphy and get a 1984 list from Blockbuster Video before digging into a Martin Brest movie that is heavily about bananas.
