This week we’re launching into 1990’s Loose Canons, a cop buddy comedy starring Gene Hackman and Dan Aykroyd. In our breakdown of the first 10 minutes, we discuss the safe sex PSA at the beginning of film and whether it will have any bearing on the plot, the Thanos-like mindset of Hackman’s character MacArthur Stern, and what exactly Dan Aykroyd’s character Ellis is painting while spending time as a monk.
We close out our coverage of Police Assassins by laughing a lot, just like our favorite new character, Mr. Tin. We also discuss how this film pulls a fast one and makes the main characters three goofballs and not Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock like we were led to believe. There is some good martial arts though, and some excellent, excellent laughing by Tin. Laugh with us, won’t you?
Our month of films selected by friend and fan Felipe Sobreiro (@sobreiro on twitter) rolls on with the action-packed romp Police Assassins (also known as Yes, Madam!). This movie packs in so much action in the first six minutes, there’s no way the rest of the film can measure up, right? Right?
We’re back with part 2 of our coverage of The Wild Wild Planet, picked for us by Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter). This movie’s got it all: 6,000 daily abductions, tiny doll people, male jealousy, weird monsters with extra arms, future cars, rivers of blood, a hall of mirrors and not-so-perfect people.
In the first of our month’s worth of episodes programmed by our friend Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter), we travel back in time to the 1960s to travel into their vision of the future, where the quest to create the perfect man is all-consuming. We lay out our predictions for the rest of the film and wonder whether the perfect man will be our savior or will doom us to death?
Part 2 drops on Thursday.
The summer blockbuster season is here, so Josh and Skinner decide to lay out their predictions for some of the biggest films of the next few months and what they expect from Stan Lee, Josh Brolin, and Tommy Cruise.
In this mini episode, we lay out the special month that lies ahead: our good friend Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreirbo on twitter) is programming an entire month of episodes! Listen in to hear what movies he has in store for us. It’s sure to be a rollicking, wild ride.
We’re back with our reactions to The Killing Man and hoo boy did we not expect it to go in the direction it did. We get our hero beating up lots of random guys, having lots of sex, and being extremely dour, but still polite enough to ask if he can smoke around his love interest. We also get some VERY problematic material that we weren’t expecting in this white guy karate movie (this movie DOES NOT look kindly on gay people at all). We also get a pretty great one-liner from Michael Ironside and some ridiculous fart rock.
In part one of our discussion on 1994’s The Killing Man (aka The Killing Machine), we predict why hero Harlin Garrett isn’t too eager to discuss baseball, the likelihood of getting into face-swapping territory, and whether or not this shadowy organization made a snuff film.
In this episode, Holly and Skinner discuss recent Academy Award-nominated animated film Ferdinand. Holly proves that advertising works by revealing her favorite commercials, and Skinner once again doubles down on pedantry in regards to Frankenstein’s monster.
