We close out Eric Roberts Month with a bang (pun intended) with the conclusion to the sleazetastic Power 98. We welcome Phil Gonzales to the show to discuss how this movie desperately wants to be transgressive and provocative but completely undercuts itself every step of the way by robbing every bit of tension available. Also: is that Larry Drake?

We’re back with our thoughts on the rest of Murder Weapon, a movie that is shockingly violent and shockingly inept in almost every way, but an absolute blast to watch (if you skip the interminable first 20 minutes). The kills are insane, the villain apparently has super strength, and the guys are dumb as rocks. This movie took our expectations and smashed them to smithereens with a sledge hammer. We are absolutely giddy with excitement over this thing. Enjoy!

In our first proper episode of Season 2, we wrestle with Murder Weapon, a seriously sleazy 1989 movie that is about… something? From these first 10 minutes, we’re actually not sure what it’s about. Maybe vampires? Split personalities perhaps? We make our predictions and prepare ourselves for what’s to come. The only way you’ll know for sure what we’ve gotten ourselves into is to come back on Thursday when we discuss the rest of the film in Part 2.

 

We kick off our Month of Thanks with recommendation from comic artist Felipe Sobreiro. Pin tells the story of an anatomical medical dummy and the boy who loves him, and it’s a whole lot of crazy. Topics of discussion include: Terry O’Quinn’s quiet intensity, one-side face-licking make-out sessions, Leon’s awful poetry, and the best boyfriend in movie history.

 

We finally tackle a Steve Guttenberg film as we continue our unintentional Silly Summer Spook-A-Thon (or whatever we’re calling this) with 1988’s horror comedy High Spirits. Why isn’t Beverly D’Angelo attracted to Steve Guttenberg? Why is Daryl Hannah so attracted to Steve Guttenberg? Just how tall is Liam Neeson? Why is that horse talking? Was Peter O’Toole really drunk all the time? Will we answer any of these questions? You’ll have to listen in to find out.
