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.
So excited to talk about Tina Turner and Charlize, we decided to jump the gun this week. (Thanks again, P.Dot!)
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!
We debate whether Cillian Murphy has had a successful career, talk about recovery movies and talk a lot of shit about The Walking Dead. Long one.
A Michael Douglas Production of a Michael Douglas Film starring Michael Douglas as Colton T. Whatever.
What even is a franchise anyway? The gang gets existential this week! more on patreon.com/thefranchise probably.
The Man With Occasional Names trilogy begins, courtesy of patron Aaron Holcomb. Also, some personal stuff infects the episode!
A Coming to America sequel just came out so you know we had to jump all over that thing.
We close out the Spider-Man franchise in grand style, with two first-time watches for Henry and one critical reevaluation from Daniel. Franchise road show this week, too! Regardless, patreon.com/thefranchise
Jamie Foxx takes a big swing and Spider-Man is finally folded into his wider comic book universe, with a new cast and a familiar aesthetic. patreon.com/thefranchise
