Episode #74 - Mac and Me

February 27th, 2014

This week we take on the legendary Mac and Me! In what doubles as a 90 minute Coke, McDonalds, Sears, and Skittles advertisement, Mac and Me follows Eric, a young boy who befriends a creepy-ass alien named Mac that's hanging out in his backyard. When the government comes looking for Mac, Eric and his brother must go on a Coca-Cola sponsored adventure to find Mac's family before the most inept government agents in history can catch up to them. Come for the wheelchair-off-a-cliff scene, stay for the McDonaldland dance off! Grab a Coke, order up a Big Mac, and join us as we eat Skittles with Mac and Me!

Episode #73 - Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

February 13th, 2014

Tim Ferlito rejoins the crew for this week's review of Mortal Bones: City of Instruments...  Boney Instruments: City of Mortals... Bone City: Instrumentally Mortal... wait... Mortal Instruments: City of Bones! Lilly Collins makes a return appearance as Bella Clary, a young woman who discovers that she is not a mere muggle mundane, but is actually the offspring of Shadowhunters, a sect of invisible demon hunters living in an giant invisible building in the middle of Brooklyn called Hogwarts The Institute. When her mother is abducted by the Clave, a Shadowhunter splinter cell, Clary must find the Holy Grail Mortal Cup before ex-Shadowhunter Valentine can get his grubby little paws on it, all while spearheading the creepiest love triangle this side of The Canyons! We're hoping the planned sequel to Mortal Instruments is mercifully put to sleep like a rabid werewolf. Grab your steam punky weapons, DRINK OUT OF THE CUP, and join us as hire Magnus Bane to erase Mortal Instruments: City of Bones from our memories!

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!
