Skinner and Holly are back with a new episode of Predict-O-Cast Jr and they’re ready for summer! This time, they delve into 2011’s Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer and Holly cannot stop laughing. She also extols the necessity of flatulence.
In this mini episode, we launch our Summer of Summer series, wherein we will only watch films with “summer” in the title all summer long! In preparation for next week’s film, we wonder what might lead people to engage in underground fight clubs and to wear the skin of their enemies. We also introduce a brand new character who’s going to set the summer on fire: Beach Cop Joe Summerman!
We close out “Felipe Sobreiro Presents” month with the second half of our discussion on Raw Meat. Skinner ventures down a thought-provoking path, we extol the virtues of Donald Pleasence’s perfect performance, and we hear from Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter) himself!
It’s the last week of Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro) picking movies for us (for now). Will he send us out with a banger or will 1972’s Raw Meat be more of a bust? So far, we’re not quite sure. We’ve got a pervy Englishman, a porn Walmart, and an American really insisting someone must be drunk.
We’re back to discuss the rest of 1990’s Loose Cannons, including that mysterious painting and the absolutely aggravating way Ellis’s legitimate trauma manifests. We also discuss the bizarre McGuffin at the center of the film, which, boy oh boy, is something. There’s also a title song in this movie, for some reason, and you get to hear it in full!
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.
