We greet our new Asta with curiosity and disdain, as Nick and Nora solve two more engaging mysteries. Plenty of dad angst!
We reckon with Shemp this week on The Franchise. Plus, is Asta a bad husband?
Daniel's dad wanted to hear him yap about William Powell and Myrna Loy for a few weeks. Strap in. At one point, Asta pops a balloon.
Jim Carrey returns, even bigger. Then, Ace must return, much smaller. Some discussion of The Sandlot.
Dedicated to Alexander Godunov. A 4-year anniversary celebration of James Carrey and Tonathan Loc.
Don't go, Djinn! We'll miss you!
We finally got around to the most recent Jumanji. It doesn't go how we expected it to.
Daniel and Henry shred their vocal chords doing Djinn impressions for 2 hours.
Welcome to ye olde Franchise, where we talk about actual movies and rank the films of Cate Blanchett.
Good news: we're done watching these movies. Bad news: We still had to talk about two more of them, plus a YouTube video or something? Also, we ranked them. Plus, we listen to pitches about which superior country we should move to.
A line is drawn in the corn.
Isaacs return. (Not a typo).
This is the same as the previous episode but edited by friend and patron Josh Merlis. If you had any trouble with the last 55 minutes of the podcast--volume problems especially--here's a slightly better version.
Whale Fall's Aaron Farinelli joins us to discuss the relative spookiness of corn products. Then, lists are done for no reason and Daniel has cause to make lots of Buffy references. Will we ever meet He Who Walks Behind the Rows?
D-Grain and H-Stalk join the cult of He Who Walks Behind The Rows.
It's a 200th episode extravaganza! We debut our 2019 lists and a new Honorable Mentions Theme, then we rank the great films of Steven Seagal, before discussing two of the best Die Hard rip-offs. Plus, a discussion of train movies!
Episode number 199 tries to pin down exactly what Hal was thinking with Fay Grim and then denounces Hollywood for forcing the third in the trilogy to be Kickstartered. Also, Hal Hartley pitches Fay Grim to Marc Cuban in the Shark Tank.
Because you're all stuck inside anyway, we can get away with a celebrating a wonderful filmmaker that you probably don't give a care about. We also rank Parker Posey and discuss New Andy's Deli.
Special quarantine edition! We wrap up and rank the Texas Chainsaw movies with two weird departures. It starts with an awkward 9/11 joke! Will things improve from there? Tune in to find out!
Now, you see, they're dunes but they're platinum. Platinum dunes. A remake and a prequel to a remake. Ah, the 00s.
In which we learn that Leatherface is a father.
We finally saw that new Terminator movie Cameron produced. We did not find it enjoyable.
Evil Chris chose this franchise and we begin with Henry viewing a classic for the first time and Daniel relating a little too closely to the Leatherface family.
We salvaged 11 minutes of this previously lost episode and recorded new intros and reviews of the final two Lone Wolf and Cub movies! We did it!
We venture forth back to samurai times, as Henry figures out what year it is and we unfortunately get up to four for four on rapes.
