Ep. #96-R.I.P.D.



On this week’s episode, we tackle 2013’s desperately unfunny MEN IN BLACK wannabe R.I.P.D., directed by Robert Schwentke. Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges play a couple of dead law enforcement officers forced to serve in the Rest In Peace Department, the afterlife’s version of the police. Will these two polar opposites manage to set aside their differences and work together to capture some escaped evil souls, a.k.a. Deados? Will Reynolds be able to make amends with his surviving wife? Will Bridges ever stop talking like he has a piece of candy stuck in his mouth?! Look, we will be honest with you: this entire episode is basically three inebriated guys doing bad Bridges impressions. So if that sounds like your type of thing, we got you covered!


Ep. #57-Morgan



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.
