Two guys watch movies, TV shows, and movie franchises to determine the all-important question... Do We Like Movies?
Halloween Special: The Horror Sequels of 1989
We wanted to do something different for Halloween this year. This episode came out of a loose discussion with a friend and listener of the show about Friday The 13th Part VII: Jason Takes Manhattan. It evolved into a discussion about how 1989 was the year that Friday The 13th 8, Nightmare on Elm St. 5, and Halloween 5 which were all released in the same year were the awful sequels in each franchise jumped the shark and killed the 80s Slasher.
We discuss the how we arrived at each sequel, how truly awful they all were, and where the franchises went after that point. It's a different structure than our normal shows but we truly had fun recording this one and we want to wish our audience safe, socially distant, and Happy Halloween.
I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
The Invisible Man(2020)
The Exorcist III (1990)
BONUS EPISODE for October! What do Angel and an infamous serial killer have in common? They are both fans of The Exorcist III. This supernatural police procedural is a direct follow up to 1973's The Exorcist and actually ignores Exorcist II: The Heretic. We pick up 15 years later and follow Lt. Kinderman from the original film as he tries to solve the case of the Gemini Killer, a fictional Zodiac-esque killer who is continuing a murder spree from several decades ago.... after he died in the electric chair.
This week we review a listener request. The 2020 direct to Netflix film that follows a young man who is a video game streamer experiencing the Zombie apocalypse in Korea while being required to self-isolate until he is potentially rescued.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
We return to the MCU to both prove Angel doesn't hate the MCU and to revisit 2014's Captain America sequel. This movie was part of a wave of post Avengers (2012) sequels and may be the best of them. a modern movie that is also a throwback to 70s espionage films, we movie follow Captain America uncovering a splinter group within S.H.I.E.L.D. with the help of Black Widow and Falcon. Join us for this week's episode!
