We watch movies that are out of print or otherwise obscure, that we haven't seen before, and we decide whether they decide to be forgotten.
Episode 55: POWER RANGERS (2017)
It all leads up to this. We’ve done Power Rangers episodes…. we’ve done episodes about movies… but until now, with one possible exception, there was not a Power Rangers movie. AND NOW, though some may accuse it of being a Breakfast Club reboot in disguise, and it does not feature Finster OR Scorpina OR the … Continue reading Episode 55: POWER RANGERS (2017)
Episode 54: The Brain (1988)
This week MikeD selected another classic of Canadian terror, filmed in a Mississauga office park. Who can brainwash better than a brain? Nobody. But so many other questions are raised. What is the brain’s goal? How can it float around on a spinal column? What is the professor’s goal? Will he be decapitated like he … Continue reading Episode 54: The Brain (1988)
Mighty Morphin Forgotten Failures 26: Sloppy Joe Pizza
It’s all about brains over brawn in this episode. Apparently the Power Rangers represent “brains” and Bulk and the Putties are “brawn”. Meanwhile Jason takes his nephew to the beach, introduces him to “the famous bully, Bulk” and they accidentally defeat Scorpina with a mirror. And Tommy isn’t in this one for some reason. And … Continue reading Mighty Morphin Forgotten Failures 26: Sloppy Joe Pizza
Episode 53: The Dynamite Brothers (1974)
Lindsay found another gem for MikeR and Darrill’s enjoyment. After 1 minute of the trailer we could tell it has the best dubbing since Catman In Boxer’s Blow, and the best kung fu action filmed in Watts in 1974. Guess what, folks. We’re hooked on the Brothers. * * * [mp3] Download or play this … Continue reading Episode 53: The Dynamite Brothers (1974)

When you defund schools, you end up with the Angel Grove high school play, featuring the school’s largest student as Rumpelstiltskin, and students forced to bring in their grandmothers’ antique spinning wheels as props. Kimberly’s grandmother’s antique spinning wheel gets destroyed, and then Kimberly’s grandmother’s antique spinning wheel disappeared, and nobody seems to understand why … Continue reading Mighty Morphin Forgotten Failures 25: Kimberly’s Grandmother’s Antique Spinning Wheel
Episode 52: Nothing But Trouble (1991)
The reviews are in! “I mean, I can understand why people, you know, don’t like it at all” – Darrill “So simultaneously we have Digital Underground being really funny, and we have Chevy Chase fighting an old man with a bedpan on his foot, and we’re like, let’s just watch Digital Underground for the rest … Continue reading Episode 52: Nothing But Trouble (1991)
Where the hell do they find these movies ?
My brain could not come up with a string of words to search google to find the obscure movies they watch. I thought I had seen everything. I found that I have not, but they might have.
Obscurity is key
Anybody can make fun of The Room or Transformers, but these guys open your eyes to something new before carefully and knowledgeably dismantling it. Well done.
