On this week’s episode, we invite one of our favorite guests, the one and only Morgan, to take on the most Morgan of all films, 2016’s sci-fi thriller MORGAN, directed by Luke Scott. A genetically engineered human has had enough of being a lab rat and goes on a killing spree–although we’re most impressed by her ability to make a seasoned cast of character actors (Michelle Yeoh, Paul Giamatti, American’s Sweetheart Boyd Holbrook) turn in performances that would make a community theater blush. Oh, did we mention that she’s only five-years-old? And that a grown-ass adult falls in love with her?! She may have accelerated growth, but the excuse of, “She looks 19!” just doesn’t sit right with us. This was a movie released only two years ago. Just pointing that out.

On this week’s episode, we somehow manage to get even dumber than usual as we take on 1996’s family comedy THE STUPIDS, directed by John Landis(!). Tom Arnold stars Stanley Stupid, the patriarch of the world’s most simple-minded family. How stupid are they?!! Well, for starters, Tom Arnold is the patriarch. We kid! But what’s not funny is our guest’s obsession with Max Landis and certain indecent acts. May the Lloyd have mercy on our souls.
On this week’s episode, we head back to the movie theater to witness Jason Statham take on the mother of all sharks in 2018’s big-budget action spectacle THE MEG, directed by Jon Turteltaub. So is this film as much fun as the trailers would lead us to believe? Or are we looking at another tired JAWS rip-off? We’ll come up with some answers once we stop getting distracted by Statham’s abs. This may take awhile. We are very jealous.
On this week’s episode, we tackle the least-respected genre in film today–the video game adaptation–as we discuss 2007’s DOA: DEAD OR ALIVE, directed by Corey Yuen. Watch as four of the most beautiful women on the planet strap on bikinis, play volleyball, and kick a whole lot of ass in a movie tailor-made for pretty much every twelve-year-old boy on the planet. And we haven’t even mentioned Eric Roberts as the pajama-clad villain. So is this cheese-fest truly a tale of female empowerment? Or does the message get lost somewhere around the tenth close-up of a bikini-clad butt? All we know for sure is that it’s certainly the most faithful video game adaptation ever put to film.
Boiling summer temps got you down? Then come cool off with us as we take on 1999’s long-forgotten action-comedy CHILL FACTOR. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Skeet Ulrich star as a pair of mismatched working-class stiffs who are tasked with saving the world when they come in possession of a chemical bomb that will detonate if it gets above 50 degrees. Luckily, Cuba’s got an ice cream truck, and Skeet has the charisma of a cadaver. As temperatures rise and tempers flare, can this SPEED rip-off keeps it cool? And will we ever learn who the hell Skeet Ulrich is, anyway? Grab a cold beer and find out.
