    Journey v Survivor

    Journey v Survivor

    Have you ever wondered who was better: Journey or Survivor? Yes of course you haven't, you're normal - but believe it or not some people do. And so, for that select few (emphasis on "few") we're attempting to answer this timely issue with our usual wit, wisdom and verbal pyrotechnics ("usual" in this case meaning "very little"). Coming soon: Apples verses Oranges - spoiler alert it's Cherries.

    Rocky III

    Rocky III

    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words ... uh ... ummmm. Okay, fine. First, in Rocky, Rocky overcomes tremendous odds and takes a beating from Apollo Creed losing a split decision and possibly suffering traumatic brain injury. That last bit is mere speculation on my part. In Rocky II, much the same happens - including the apparent brain injury - but this time Rocky wins. The producers of both movies also win-sans the brain injury - by making a lot of money. So naturally, here comes Rocky III. This time, in a nod to Bergman, Rocky's biggest opponent is himself and his place in a world where God is silent and Mister T is loud. Rocky spends much of the first have of the film wandering through his own personal Gethsemane pleading with Mickey to stay with him whilst being tormented by T (Clubber Lang), "Balboa, your family doin' real nice, ain't it? You call yourself a fighter? Prove it now. Gimme that same chance!" Rocky ends up fighting Clubber not once but twice and both gives and receives a tremendous beating, possibly - and again this is speculation - further exacerbating his traumatic brain injury. He also engages in water sports and horseplay with Apollo, and as a reward, is gifted by Apollo with a pair his used boxing trunks. Triumph and self redemption can't be far away, or can they?

    The Liam Neeson Hour with Brett Butler

    The Liam Neeson Hour with Brett Butler

    Okay, it's not really an hour but you listen dirtbag, you don't know who you're dealing with! Not to worry, we do! FOP (Friend of the Pod and yes I know that defeats the point of using acronyms and this is a really boring digression and I'm truly sorry for that, where was I?)Brett Butler(he originally spelled it "Bret" according to reliable sources that we can't vouch for) calls in to discuss the Neeson brand. He has a very particular set of skills, some rather unsavory skeletons in his closet (to mix a metaphore)and has a somewhat tarnished reputation of late. Seriously, you don't know who you're dealing with!

    Doug The Burt Reynolds Expert

    Doug The Burt Reynolds Expert

    When you've got Burt Reynolds(I've heard he originally spelled it "Bert") questions, who you gonna call? Doug McInnis! Who the eff is that? Well, he's just a simple country lawyer, father of five and to be honest, a bit of a rebel. First in his class and last to leave the party. Get it? Works hard and plays hard. And what does all this have to do with ol' Burt? Not much really but ol' Doug has a 'stash (at least that's what we've heard) and he's not only full up on all that legal law stuff but an authority on all things Reynolds. The defense calls its expert witness and Burt authority DMC. Case is closed!

    Fast Break

    Fast Break

    This movie is described thusly: "A deli clerk is given the chance to organise (yes, that's how they spelled organize - and by they I mean the Internet) a group of diverse characters into a winning basketball team." It also seems that a deli clerk was given the chance to write a movie script about a group of diverse character being organised (yes I know) into a winning basketball team. Starring Gabriel Kaplan - but sadly, Ron Palillo was nowhere to be seen.
