Ep. #13-Steel

It was inevitable. On this week’s episode, we discuss 1997’s infamous comic book adaptation STEEL, starring beloved character actor Shaquille O’Neal and a woman in a laser beam-shooting, rocket-fueled wheelchair. Yeah, we couldn’t make this stuff up even if we wanted. Cue the free throw jokes!

Ep. #12-Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

On this week’s episode, we examine 2015’s Sundance award-winning ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL, an indie dramedy that is unbelievably even more twee than its title. Can genuine emotion escape the self-satisfied dialogue and quirky characterization? And can someone please turn down the damn Lou Reed?!

Ep. #11-Breakdown

On this week’s episode, we discuss Jonathan Mostow’s 1997 thriller BREAKDOWN, in which Kurt Russell’s hair tracks down the sinister backwoods truckers who have kidnapped his wife. Yeah, it’s as badass as it sound. All hail The Russell!

Ep. #10-Pootie Tang

As the latest Spider-Man swings its way into theaters, this week we take a look at a very different kind of hero introduced to audiences in the summer of 2001–the one and only POOTIE TANG, courtesy of Louis C.K., of all people. Armed with gibberish, a magical belt, and the world’s worst film editor, he’s gonna sine your pitty on the runny kine, whether you like it or not. Kapa-chow!
