    Reindeer Games (2000) - Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron, Gary Sinise

    It's December, which means we have an excuse to watch movies that people say are Christmas movies, but aren't actually Christmas movies. And we're starting with the action film everyone always insists is a Christmas movie, Reindeer Games. Featuring Ben Affleck's eyebrows, Sinise at his most Sinisiest, and Theron giving more depth to her character than she deserves, this case of mistaken identity is one for the ages.

    Army of One (2016) Nicolas Cage, Russell Brand

    Army of One (2016) Nicolas Cage, Russell Brand

    It is the joy of every movie podcast to finally get to do a Nicolas Cage film. When the synopsis of the film is Cage is a man who is on a mission from God to hunt down Bin Laden, you become even more excited. Everything is primed for something to go gloriously wrong. And it does. It’s horrible. Not in a fun way.

    The Assignment (2016) Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, Tony Shalhoub

    The Assignment (2016) Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, Tony Shalhoub

    Flock of Seagals is changing things up.


    We've done 12 episodes of FoS that we're immensely proud of, that we did without the knowledge of the recent allegations against Steven Seagal. In light of these new accusations, and learning the full breadth of what they encompass, we've decided we're not gonna give him any more publicity, however small it might have been.


    However, we're keeping our RSS feed and our name for the time being, and we are still going to do what we do best on this podcast: seek out the most ill conceived and puzzlingly shot films we can find and give them the critical analysis they never deserved. Steven Seagal was our shorthand for that, but from here on out, we will be seeking out shining examples of movies where directors, actors, producers, lighting techs, audio mixers, editors, caterers et al all decided to "just show up", give it 50% and be home by 5.


    And by god does 2016's The Assignment fit the bill on that account. Directed by Walter Hill (director of The Warriors, producer on all the Alien films), The Assignment sees Michelle Rodriguez as Frank, a male hitman who has his gender reassigned against his will by Sigourney Weaver as revenge for assassinating Weaver's brother. The film features about 20 minutes of Michelle Rodriguez as a 110 pound male with a generous endowment, Sigourney quoting Poe to Shalhoub and not one, but two characters using flashbacks as framing devices. It’s also the grittiest Toronto has ever looked.


    We hope you'll come with us through this change, as we're really excited about making more great podcasts about bad movies, not bad people.

    Pistol Whipped

    Pistol Whipped

    Pistol Whipped is a film the way Totino’s Pizza Rolls are calzones. There are recognizable shapes and textures, it seems vaguely familiar to something you’ve enjoyed before, but ultimately you’re left feeling empty inside. With Totino’s all you need to do is rip open another pack, but there is nothing to fill the void Pistol Whipped will leave in you.


    This isn’t to say there isn’t a lot going on. In many ways, the story mirrors that of Ant Man: a man down on his luck has his vices exploited by a wealthy businessman, who promises a path to redemption and reconciliation with his estranged daughter. While it’s debatable whether Seagal is more charismatic than Rudd, the former definitely brings his signature “breathless charm” to the picture.


    In a Lynchian twist, many of the locations are recycled, but change every time Seagal revisits. What is at first the service entrance to a hotel lobby is transformed to a 2-table casino and then a cubicled mafioso restaurant while its labyrinthine network of staircases always leads Seagal to the same exterior shot of an abandoned warehouse. What are we meant to read into this? Perhaps this whole movie is actually a dream Seagal’s character had after drinking himself unconscious. It would explain why none of this is properly fleshed out.


    Pistol Whipped: badbadnotgood.

    Out for Justice

    Out for Justice

    This week Dan, Tony and Riley go back to the days when a cop could get clearance and a shotgun from his lieutenant to go kill William Forsythe. Simpler times indeed. They dive into the crack epidemic, the lack of “beefy boy” fights in modern cinema and Chekov’s garbage puppy. They also discuss the legendary pants accident Seagal allegedly suffered on set. This also marks one of the best shot Seagal films, with a 1991 budget of $14 million, which in today’s dollars is much more than what his films cost to shoot today, because it’s more in 1991 dollars as well.


    I don’t know how inflation works.

    The Perfect Weapon Analysis

    The Perfect Weapon Analysis

    This week is a doozy: 2016's The Perfect Weapon, where Seagal plays Dictator of America in 2029. We've made a lot of comparisons to Trump in the past, but this is terrifyingly real. Anyways! The film is available to rent on a lot of major platforms for a very reasonable price, and is well worth it!

Love it!

Mr. Seagal would be proud. Well, he's probably too busy breaking limbs to be proud. But I'm proud of you for making this.
