This movie was suggested by friend of the show Spencer Seams (who co-hosts Akira Kurosawa podcast High & Low) and boy oh boy, it is not good. Still, there are good goofs within this episode and a special appearance by Skinner’s daughter, who is just the best. You should listen for her commentary alone.
Friend of the show Spencer (cohost of the Akira Kurosawa podcast High & Low) suggested this film to us, so here we are. Will this be another smashing success like previous listener-suggested Turkey Shoot or another disappointing mess like the animal-themed Army Dog or Bunnyman Massacre (turns out we’ve done a ton of movies with animals in the title)? Only one way to find out…
This is what we’ve been waiting for! We usher in the double digits by diving into one of the coolest, sleaziest 80s action ozploitation films to ever exist: Turkey Shoot. If you don’t know anything about this movie, watch it now because we are going to spoil the greatest moment in the movie (and one of the greatest moments in movie history) and you need to see it for yourself before we do. Seriously, this movie rules. Big thanks to our pal Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter) for recommending this to us.
In this mini episode, we prepare ourselves for a film suggested by listener and comic artiste Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter). We haven’t been looking forward to a movie this much since the release of Crow Stab.
In this episode we take a look at Equals, a sci-fi romance suggested by previous guest Beau North. Spoilers: We absolutely nail the predictions this week, so really no need to listen to the second half of the episode. But if you do, you’ll hear our thoughts on the nature of love, what it must be like to feel emotions for the first time, especially in regards to kissing and boners, as well as whether this future understands what werewolves are, and we predict what an Equals sequel might look like.
Beau North, our special guest on last week’s City Island episode, sticks around to reveal the film she chose to fall prey to our prediction powers.
In this episode, we’re joined by author-podcaster Beau North to discuss the 2009 family dramedy City Island. We talk bad Marlon Brando impressions, accents, secret smoking, feederism, and introduce a new term into the Predict-O-Cast lexicon that’s sure to capture the hearts and minds of everyone listening.
Find out more about Beau North (as well as purchase her books) at her website BeauNorthWrites.com. Her podcast Excessively Diverted: Modern Austen On-Screen (with co-host Sammi C) can be found on iTunes. Josh and Skinner were guests on the recent episode covering Scents & Sensibility and it’s a must-listen.
Beau will also be joining us on next week’s mini episode to pick our next movie for us.
In this mini episode, we have two things to reveal: the film we’ll cover next week as well as the name of the special guest who will be joining us!
There’s fewer goofs than normal in this one mostly because (SPOILER ALERT) we really enjoyed this movie! Listen in to find out if, in fact, Deidra and Laney do rob a train (SPOILER ALERT: yep!).
We learned our lesson with Army Dog, so now we’re prepared for a movie to shake off the premise of its title at minute 11. Still, what ELSE could a movie called Deidra and Laney Rob a Train be about?
