Summer of Summer rolls on with 2016’s Cruel Summer, a movie that has some really problematic content right up front and sets the stage for an incredibly tough movie-watching experience. We also discuss the tragic origins of Old Man Wax Face and his royal family statues.

Our Summer of Summer rolls on, with this new mini episode where we reveal the next film we’re discussing and then set up an epic battle between two classic pop bands.

If the first ten minutes of Breaking Loose: Summer City 2 set us up for something crazy, the rest of the movie doesn’t let us down. We get Viking funerals, surfboard cocaine, domestic drama, deciding whether or not to sleep with your mom’s friend, surfing and an insane beach battle. Plus a man laughing uproariously at a skeleton cartoon. It’s a summer extravaganza.

Summer of Summer continues with us back down under, for the Summer City sequel, Breaking Loose. In the first ten minutes, we get an awesomely 80’s “gettin’ ready” montage, a bunch of middle-aged leather punks with a weird sense of honor, a drag race and an explosion. Looks like this summer is getting back on track.

Happy Independence Day, America! Also, you’re on notice for being really terrible lately. As a way to better understand American history and the significance of July 4th, we watched the absolutely-drowning-in-dog-puns children’s educational short Pups of Liberty: The Dog-claration of Independence. We spend most of our time discussing puns and then try to figure out how to dogify other American political scandals/travesties.

We’re back with part 2 of our discussion on 2010’s Summertime Christmas, and this one’s a massive undertaking. Elves, Santa, God, magic berries, bad kids, heavy-handed messages, this movie’s got it all. This is probably the longest episode we’ve ever done and Skinner is angrier than he’s ever been, with good reason; the politics of this movie are as messed up as can be and did nothing to instill the Christmas spirit in us (even if it is summertime). Listen, learn, laugh, love.

Hot Diggity Dog, our extremely ill-advised side show where we watch dog movies, is back! This time, we’re discussing a dog movie featuring the best video game ever made, a bargain-basement afterlife, and the oldest 35-year-old.
