Surprise! On this high holy day, we take a look at 1996’s romantic comedy April Fools Rush In, where we predict something that shouldn’t be possible in this film, but somehow is. Also, lots of talk of pagers. It was the 90s after all.
In our first foray into international cinema, we absolutely cannot stop talking about finger phones in The Avenging Fist. Wanna know what that is? Well, you have to listen (but it’s probably exactly what you’re thinking)! We also explore the history behind this film, and look at how it was originally supposed to be an adaptation of a video game but the filmmakers forgot to get the rights. But seriously, it’s all about the finger phone. Ring-ring-ring. “Hello?” “It’s Predict-O-Cast.”
Wonder what a movie called The Avenging Fist might be about? So do we! Find out next week for sure, but first, listen to us describe what we think it could be.
We venture into the world of family-friendly animal movies with the Casper Van Dien film Army Dog. Don’t let the title or marketing materials fool you: there’s not a lot of army to be found in this one. This movie completely blindsided us, and everything we predicted for this one is better than what it actually is. So enjoy?
In this mini-episode, we reveal the title of the next full episode and try to figure out what exactly a movie called Army Dog would be about. That’s right, our next film is called Army Dog.
In our longest episode yet, we trudge through the 2014 action-comedy Stretch, starring Patrick Wilson, Jessica Alba, an occasionally green Ed Helms and Chris Pine in Charles Manson cosplay. We predict so many things in this film, including the identity of the mysterious Jovi (you’ll never guess who it is!). Additionally, we discuss how much a person can be bleeding before a diner in L.A. refuses them service.
In this new mini-episode, we reveal the film we’ll cover in the next full episode and predict its storyline based solely on the title (secret movie-based-on-a-1970s-toy, maybe?).
