Our hearts are on fire with love for Rocky IV, from Drago to Paulie's sex robot. Then, we go on a long journey into the darkness that is Rocky V. Avildsen's back! Thanks for nothing.

Mar 19, 2017

One real movie. Then Mr. T and Hulk Hogan show up. Which is the better approach? Who's to say?

Mar 12, 2017

Yo! Hey! Boxing movies, y'know? Whoa! What? Hey! Best picture?! Whoa, thanks! 

Mar 5, 2017

Neveldine and Taylor recruit Jason Statham for a couple of fun days out. And we recruit Isaac Lopez (@kickisaacout) for a fun podcast about them! Who can recognize the most porn stars? Find out here.

Feb 26, 2017

The least epic book of all time gets the treatment it doesn't deserve. Blade 2 Zombies! Crazy Cat Ladies! And Dark Peeta! PLUS, we make our 2017 Oscar predictions.

Feb 19, 2017

We dig into our first YA adaptation, Lion's Gate savior The Hunger Games. It's all here. The highs (Jennifer Lawrence, PSH), the lows (Lenny Kravitz?, the lesser Hemsworth) and everything in between (Rue). Let the games begin.

Feb 12, 2017

Rene Russo. Chris Rock. Jet Li. Joe Pesci with bleach-blonde hair. And then a demotion to network television. Lethal Weapon slides downhill. 

Feb 5, 2017

We're revisiting some old friends on Joel Silver's sticky, disgusting casting couch. Murtaugh and Riggs! A family man and a suicidal Nazi with a barely hidden Australian accent. Okay, okay, okay. 

Jan 30, 2017

We mansplain the Legally Blonde franchise to you! 

Jan 22, 2017

Clint takes the director's chair and decides the best thing to do would be filming a gang rape. So there's that. But then Jim Carrey, Liam Neeson and Patricia Clarkson come along to liven things up a bit. The Young Pope. Sundays and Mondays at 9 on HBO.

Jan 15, 2017

FORCE!!! First, Clint Eastwood participates in Battle of the Network Stars and then he checks out Tyne Daly's ass. Somehow, it's all very racist and occasionally boring.

Jan 9, 2017

Clint Eastwood finally hits our shores. With a chair. And a pretty sweet handgun. Do you feel lucky?

Jan 1, 2017

Raja Gosnell edits his way to the driver's seat and is most definitely NOT Indian. Then we turn on the boob tube for Kevin Returns and a sweet little ghost story with Malcolm McDowell.

Dec 25, 2016

CHRISTMAS SPECIAL!!! Macauley Culkin run around a whole lot! Plus, we debate the merits of the first one and totally agree that the second one is a mess. BUZZ, YOUR GIRLFRIEND! WOOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFF!

Dec 22, 2016

Straight from the loony bin, we're back! And we're talking all things Westworld, Michael Crichton, Peter Fonda being terrible, Yul Brynner's odd sashay with Blythe Danner and especially Spa World. Oh yes. Spa World. Plus, we talk a little TV. Wiki-wild. Wiki-Wild-Wild-West.

Dec 11, 2016

Aaron Farinelli is back to talk mandibles with us this week. First, those pesky xenomorphs are back and this time there's teen drama! Then, Adrian Brody growls his way through Nimrod's jungle. 

Dec 4, 2016

Danny Glover is an action star and the hellish LA streets of 1997. And then your boy and mine, Paul W.S. Anderson, turns the lights out for a brawl to end them all. At least until the sequel. Whoever wins, we lose. 

Nov 27, 2016

Get in the chopper. It's testosterone in overdrive this week. 

Nov 20, 2016

We slog through the drudgery that is the Austin Powers franchise, a half-assed sprawl of sex and poop jokes. "Get in my belly," it says, and we try our hardest not to be swallowed up.

Nov 13, 2016

It's our most shagadelic episode yet! With all that that entails. Yeah, baby. Yeah. 

Nov 6, 2016

We cover one of the best movies of all time! Then we cover its Jack Nicholson-helmed sequel, which is not one of the best movies of all time. Really not. Like, way not.

Nov 3, 2016

Michael Bay invades Crystal Lake. PLUS: We rank all 11 (12?) Friday the 13th movies.

Oct 30, 2016

Jason turns out to be a little wormy thing. Then he goes to space. Oh, New Line Cinema. What hath thee wrought?

Oct 25, 2016

JASON VS. CARRIE! Um, I mean Tina. JASON FIGHTS A BOAT! CRACK! HEROIN! And the beginning of the "Kane Hodder era" if that means anything to anybody.

Oct 15, 2016

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBS. And then a good movie. Check it out. Two of the absolute strangest films (I mean movies) of this franchise.
