Episode #80 - Sliver

• April 18th, 2014

Billy Baldwin proves once again to be the best Baldwin in his second appearance on the podcast in 1993's Sliver. Sharon Stone stars as Carly, a book editor who moves into a high rise apartment building in New York City. After becoming romantically involved with one of the creepiest neighbor a girl could have (Baldwin), she spirals into a world of murder, deceit, adultery, spy cameras, horse whips and sad, sad sex. Sliver is an erotic thriller that is neither erotic, nor thrilling. Grab your telescope, spy on your neighbors, and join us as we throw Sliver out of a high rise apartment building!

Episode #79 - The Counselor

• April 10th, 2014

The Counselor is a film with a top rated cast and a bottom shelf script. Starring alongside Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, Michael Fassbender plays the eponymous counselor, a lawyer who gets caught up in... something... bad? We're still not really sure. When the deal goes bad, Bardem, Pitt, and Fassbender find themselves in the crosshairs of the Cartel. Some people make some ridiculous speeches, and Cameron Diaz workshops a few accents. That's the closest I can come to giving a synopsis of this mess. Grab your pet leopards, wash your windshield, and join us as we make a snuff film out of The Counselor!

Episode #76 - Foodfight!

• March 13th, 2014

Strap in... this is a rough one. Back in the very early aughts some filmmakers decided to make a star studded Toy Story ripoff that has only slightly less product placement than Mac & Me! After 12 years on a shelf, this unrendered nightmare was unleashed onto a completely unsuspecting and undeserving public. Starring Charlie Sheen, Hilary Duff, Eva Longoria, and Christopher Lloyd, Foodfight! follows Dex Dogtective, a cereal mascot "ike" who quits his job as head dogtective when he fails to solve his most important case... the disappearance of the love of his life. 6 months later the grocery store that is their home is invaded by the evil "Brand X", a generic brand that wants to dominate and assimilate the store. Now Dex must stop a very thinly veiled holocaust scenario before his friends are killed, and the children in the audience start asking very uncomfortable questions about genocide. Please don't show your kids this movie. Grab your raisins, butter your muffins, and join us as we learn why it's bad to be ugly with Foodfight! With special guest host Dora Scheidell!

Episode #75 - I, Frankenstein

• March 6th, 2014

The crew of Stop the Movie took a trip down to Theater 17, located in the bowels of our local cinema, where the seats are few and the movies are terrible, to see I, Frankenstein, the 2014 atrocity starring Aaron Eckhart as the titular hero. When Frankenstein's monster, renamed Adam, is attacked by demons immediately following the events of the novel, he is rescued and taken in by the order of the Gargoyles, angelic creatures who protect humanity from evil forces. Fast forward 200 years, Adam, now a full blown demon hunter, finds himself in the crosshairs of the evil Lord Naberius (Bill Nighy), the CEO of a medical research firm that is trying to find a way to reanimate corpses in order to create a demon army large enough to take over the world. With the help of an overly attractive doctor, Adam must protect the secret which only his body and his father's journal holds, all while accomplishing the far more difficult task of continuously saying the phrase "Queen Gargoyle" without cracking a smile. Grab your demon killin' blades, put on your hoodies, and join us as we "descend" I, Frankenstein!

Episode #72 - Knightriders

• February 6th, 2014

Nick Newert returns to the podcast to help us figure out George A. Romero's Knightriders! A modern day Arthurian tale, Knightriders is about a roving Renaissance Fair troupe famous for staging dangerously entertaining motorcycle jousts. When their increasingly delusional king, played by Ed Harris, refuses to sell out to THE MAN at all costs the group splits into two factions, those who want a big payday (led by Tom Savini) and those who prefer to live like hippies. Now King Ed Harris must come to terms with his own destiny in order to restore and preserve the integrity of the troupe, even if it means losing his crown. While this movie is certainly bizarre and ridiculous, we found it strangely and compellingly endearing. Grab your maces, oil up your bikes, and join us as we fight the Dragon with Knightriders!
