Lee Russell, Daniel Harper, Paul Remaley and Leah Hardy discuss films they love, hate, or perhaps are on the fence about, usually while drinking. While not adverse to exploring all genres of film, the podcast focuses on horror, sci-fi, cult, exploitation, and the obscure. Spoilers, adult language, and a general lack of political correctness can be expected.
TMBDOS! Intermission #30: "Multiple Maniacs" (1970).
Lee and Leah check out a film Leah suggested for the podcast - and a film that is a shameful blind spot in Lee's trash movie viewing - "Multiple Maniacs" (1970). It's John Waters' first talkie, and features the incomparable talents and screen presence of Divine. Is it too transgressive for its time? Is it too tame these days? Should it be embraced by the LGBTQ community despite some of the less PC content? What's a rosary job? Tune in to find out.

TMBDOS! Episode 226: "Dance Charlie Dance" (1937) & "The Law in Her Hands" (1936).
Lee, Daniel and Leah are back this week checking out two films featuring the talents of the lovely Glenda Farrell. First it's an example of the classic small-town boy gets taken for a sucker tale, "Dance Charlie Dance" (1937) and then they move over to a film about smart, independent female lawyers trying to make their way in a male-dominated profession, "The Law in Her Hands" (1936). Which film did a heel turn on the hosts and made them hate it? Tune in to find out. Leah and Lee also talk about what they've watched as of late.

TMBDOS! Episode 225: "Magnolia" (1999).
Lee, Daniel and Leah are back to tackle Paul Thomas Anderson's lengthy epic drama from 1999, "Magnolia". What did they think about the multiple interconnected storylines and how they all came together? Did the talented ensemble cast get enough screen time in their individual parts? How does Daniel feel about a film that was once his favourite film back when he first braved a tornado warning to see it alone in a theater? Did Tom Cruise deserve his Oscar nod here? What did Leah think of the frogs raining from the sky? All of this and more in this lengthy talk about a lengthy film. Also covered: what the hosts have watched as of late.

Cape Sh!t Episode 13: "Captain America: Civil War" (2016).
Daniel, Lee, Greg and Kerry return to chat about "Captain America: Civil War" (2016). Opinions on this one are far more split than usual, as the hosts debate if this is even really a Captain America film or an Avengers film. Does Spiderman and Black Panther have to be in this? Is the Winter Soldier worth a damn? Do the action scenes at least hold up? Is there enough meat in this two and a half hour film for it to be worth your time? All this and more, so come fight us about it in an airport or something.

TMBDOS! Episode 224: "C. C. & Company" (1970).
Lee, Dan, and Leah are back to talk about the goofy little biker film starring Joe Namath, Ann-Margret and William Smith, "C.C. & Company" (1970). How much of a real exploitation film is it? How big of a dick-bag is Namath in this? Why is Ann-Margret's character in any way attracted to Namath's character? Why are the biking scenes so damn long and drawn-out? Fuck Gene Siskel and the body-shaming horse he rode in on? All of these questions and more in this fun episode. Join our podcast biker gang, and let's do some audio crimes together!
