Episode #121 - The Gambler

November 5th, 2015

Marky Mark is back? What? No! Mark Wahlberg plays a college professor who just... can't... stop... with the gambling. The film opens with him already in debt to the tune of $240,000. On the plus side, it seems like people just can't help themselves from giving him money to pay off his debts. Unfortunately, he uses exactly zero cents of any of that money to pay off the dangerous people who are after him, and instead uses all of it to play the worst hands of black jack and games of roulette that anyone has ever seen. Seriously, he's the worst gambler ever. His "arc" includes borrowing money from every loan shark in existence to pay off every other loan shark he owes, alienating and emotionally abusing his girlfriend, proving that he's the worst lecturer that has ever lectured, corrupting the best college athlete the world has seen in years, and forever wrecking his relationship with his family. No redemption to be seen here, folks! Grab your playing cards, put everything on red, and join us as we lecture The Gambler!

Episode #118 - Dante’s Peak

September 24th, 2015

It's Bond vs the volcano in Dante's Peak! Pierce Brosnan stars as volcanologist Harry Dalton, who is dispatched to the small town of Dante's Peak to investigate some possible volcanic activity. After determining that the mountain is on the verge of blowing (like this movie, HEY-O), he tries to warn the town of their impending doom, much to the chagrin of his boss, apparently fresh off his stint as the mayor of Amity. Inevitably the volcano erupts, because this would be a pretty boring movie if it didn't, and Harry must completely ignore the fact that he's a volcanologist in a town with an erupting volcano and instead go rescue a single little old lady who doesn't want to leave anyway... and killing her in the process. Now, along with Mayor Sarah Connor and her annoying kids, he must find away to escape Dante's Peak before the next eruption completely destroys the town. If this was a latter day Bros Bond movie, he would have totally rode a wave of lava. Grab your Nasa transmitter, pour yourself a cappuccino, and join us as we bury Dante's Peak in volcanic ash!

Episode #117 - Basic Instinct 2

September 4th, 2015

Sharon Stone's Catherine Tramell is up to her old murderin' tricks again.... or maybe she isn't. Who knows! Either way, her psychiatrist, Dr. Glass is pretty sure she's got blood on her hands, but he doesn't let that stop him from becoming dangerously and creepily obsessed with her. Hired to give her a mental examination as part of a trial, he eventually finds himself defending her as bodies and evidence pile up, which seems to paint her as a cold blooded killer. But who is the real killer? No, really, I'm asking. I have no idea who the killer is. Please tell me. A erotic "thriller" that has more twists and turns than Nicolas Cage's Trespass and less answers than a broken telephone, Basic Instinct 2 proves one thing for sure... that nobody needed a sequel to Basic Instinct.
