    Episode 181: Red Hot '80s Action Summer I | PREDATOR

    Episode 181: Red Hot '80s Action Summer I | PREDATOR

    We're starting our Red Hot '80s Action Summer off with a jungle-tinged bang! Arnie's quotable film Predator is on the docket, and as we rewatched this John McTiernan action/sci-fi/slasher hybrid we couldn't help but feel disappointed with our rose-colored glasses view of this nostalgic classic, because it just doesn't hold up as well as we thought. We talk about those criticisms and joke about the soundtrack, the dialogue, the mystical Native American trope, and which form of Predator we'd rather... well, you know. 

    We're also drinking Beer Tree Brewing's Layered: Maple, Brown Sugar, Blueberry Parfait Sour.

    Episode 180: THE WICKER MAN (1973)

    Episode 180: THE WICKER MAN (1973)

    It's summertime, and of course we need to visit the island of Summerisle for a quick jaunt to a cult led by Christopher Lee. We talk about the excellent casting in the film, the heavy religious themes, Britt Eklund's booty dance, the missing deleted scene, Lee's hair(piece?), and the shocking finale. We're definitely fans of this crazy slow-burn movie, and I think you can hear in this episode. Let us know what you think!

    Episode 179: SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW

    Episode 179: SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW

    We've done every other Saw film (1-7 in a marathon), so it was inevitable that we'd have to head out to the theater to see Spiral: From the Book of Saw. And for the most part, we liked this one okay - it's definitely better than Jigsaw, though its writers are the same, and Chris Rock is really doing the best he can with what he's got. The traps are cool, but there are still some major issues. Listen to the whole thing and let us know what you thought of this new reboot of the series!

    A note: we recorded remotely (for the last time) and we did have some issues near the end of the recording where the remote recording cut out some content and caused some skips and pauses. For the record, Ryne rated this a 7/10 creepy little marionette dolls.

    We're also drinking Founders' All Day Vacay Session Wheat Ale.

    Episode 178: MORTAL KOMBAT (2021)

    Episode 178: MORTAL KOMBAT (2021)

    We're back! We took a long hiatus, but one thing helped us decide to come back: the new Mortal Kombat reboot. Being one of Martin's favorite franchises, we just had to take a look at the new R-rated film from director Simon McQuoid. Expect some nostalgic waxing about the original games, discussion on the film's storyline, groaning about this being more like an introductory lead-up to a sequel, and more! It's good to be back.

    On this show, we have Beer Tree Brew Co.'s Virtuosity - Blood Orange, Mango, and Marshmallow, as well as Artisanal Brew Works' Warheads Extreme Sour Watermelon Hard Seltzer.

    Episode 177: Festivus Series | JACK FROST (1997)

    Episode 177: Festivus Series | JACK FROST (1997)

    Our finale for Festivus Series 2020 comes with a caveat: it's a bad movie. The 1997 slasher movie Jack Frost does just about everything wrong, and it's not even so bad it's good; it does have, though, a quick Shannon Elizabeth nude scene, so that's something. We talk about the really lazy snowman design, the bad snow, the ridiculous genetic material science, and a whole lot more. We're also drinking Beer Tree's Virtuosity passionfruit dragonfruit marshmallow double NEIPA!

    Edit: there was an issue with sequencing that threw the later part of the track off, this has been fixed as of 12/30.

    Episode 176: Festivus Series | SCROOGED

    Sorry our episode is a little late, we had remote technical difficulties due to weather. We're talking the Christmas classic Scrooged for this episode, A Christmas Carol for the '80s which sort of acts as a metacommentary for the Charles Dickens tale. We talk about Bill Murray's a*****e character, Bobcat Goldthwaite as a disgruntled employee, our favorite ghost, and of course the value of 5 pounds of veal. We're also drinking a couple different beers on the show!
