The holidays are upon us, which can only mean one thing... We're about to review a movie featuring a character named Jack Frost! In the third installment of the Santa Clause series, Martin Short plays Jack Frost, a member of the League of Legendary Figures with a major inferiority complex who just wants his own holiday. On the verge of being thrown out of the league, Jack devises a diabolical plan to push Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) out of his job as Santa Claus so he can take over as everyone's favorite legendary figure. After being tricked into giving up his post, losing his family, and seeing the North Pole turned into a theme park, Scott must find a way to reverse what Jack has done and get his life back. Grab your snow globes, book a trip to "Canada", and join us as we convince Santa Clause 3 to wish itself out of existence!

This week, Ed Burns sneaks back into our lives with a bag of fertilizer. That fertilizer, of course, is A Sound of Thunder!

When something goes awry on one of these hunts, a butterfly effect is put into action, rendering the present unrecognizable. Burns and his crew must fend off monkey-dinosaurs and subway serpents while they try to figure out a way to go back in time one last time and fix what they've broken. The director of this film clearly had it out for the great Ray Bradbury.

Episode #95 - Fear No Evil

October 16th, 2014

Our second "Horror-able Halloween" movie of the year is 1981's Fear No Evil! I had a team of scientists, theologists, and satanists study and break down the plot for me, and they tell me that the movie revolves around Andrew Williams, who is as normal a high school student as they come... studious, awkward, the living incarnate of the fallen angel Lucifer, and a killer dodgeball player. While Andrew is battling with his hormones and ambiguous sexuality, two arch angels prepare to destroy the devil inside him once and for all. Also, some guy hits his girlfriend a lot and a priest puts on a play. Hey, sometimes it's tough to fill 90 minutes. Grab your birthday cakes, stay out of the crazy gym teacher's way, and join us as we enjoy the beautiful scenery of Boldt Castle with Fear No Evil!
