    Shaun of the Dead (2004)

    Shaun of the Dead: “You’ve Got Red on you.”
    Nothing is sacred on this inconsistent farce of a podcast, so Darth and Jason decided to discuss Shaun of the Dead while the world is under quarantine due to the #CoronaVirus. C’mon … like it isn’t funny to discuss the Cornetto in the chaos of Corona?
    Like it or not, your favorite podcasters have to believe that this pandemic will produce something good; rather, a large group of parents will produce their “Coronita” babies in December 2020. On this particular episode, Jason regrets creating a running quarantine gag! Why, you might ask? He had to put in some effort, and putting in effort is so passé.

    In similar fashion, Adam B. makes zero effort to drive to the studio for this episode. Rather, he calls in from his bunker under the protection of his gas mask because he doesn’t love the #Hindsighters like Darth and Jason do. You learn who your real friends are during a quarantine, listeners-turned-viewers. We’re sorry you had to find out this way. Darth and Jason are attempting to recover from this devastating blow amidst the already imposing contagion.

    No one handles quarantine claustrophobia quite like a submariner…
    Boredom-induced questions abound amidst the #CoronaConfinement:
    If you’re not preparing your children (if you’re unfortunate to have them) for the inevitable demise of their friends and upcoming concerts, are you even BEING a responsible parent?Did Courtney kill Cobain? #TopicalDo generation categories even make sense?Darth is NEVER revealing Adam’s true age; she’ll die on that hill even after he’s buried under it.Why hasn’t Bill Nighy been knighted yet?
    Ultimately, Darth and Jason realize that everyone is struggling with social distancing. At times like these, it’s important to keep yourself entertained with your favorite music, television shows, and obviously the greatest podcast of all time. And there’s no need to thank us; we’re no heroes. We wear on bras on our heads just like everyone else.
    Stay tuned and stay safe during these troubling times, and do your best to stay sane. Special Forces will show up to save us all, eventually. In the meantime, mix yourself a nice quarantini and wait for all this to blow over. 😉

    Weird Science : “I Want to Butter Your Muffin!”
    #Hindsighters, Darth and Jason know that it’s been a rough couple of weeks for everyone facing the #CoronaVirus pandemic. It’s no fun when the world goes full Outbreak, but don’t let the deadly Motaba monkey on your back get you down! Your favorite podcast is still plugging away with new content, and that’s enough to make anyone smile (or to send Darth and Jason even MORE hate mail).
    This week, Darth watches a movie about two nerdy boys with her two favorite nerdy boys! Adam B. joins Jason and Darth in the studio to discuss a bizarre John Hughes film, Weird Science!

    There’s nothing like a man in taped up nerd goggles to make all the ladies go wild.
    When he’s young and desperate to get laid, what geeky lad wouldn’t stoop to Victor Frankenstein levels to “simulate” himself a girlfriend? Moreover, who cares about the embarrassment of a head brazier when they’re cooking up a smoking hot sorceress girl on their outlandishly expensive 80s computer?

    Darth’s burning question is…who wore it better? Just kidding, RDJ all the way.
    Just keep in mind, #Hindsighters, that creating the perfect girl with “computer science” is all fun and games until that girl goes full Cat in the Hat and destroys your house by inviting over Mad Max bikers. The bad news is, she won’t stop there. In fact, when your grandparents try to bust up your sick ass 80s house party, your computer simulated girlfriend will freeze those bastards in Suspended Animation and shove them in the pantry.
    Needless to say, this super 80s film is a tad random and somewhat polarizing. However, Weird Science does allow viewers to walk down memory lane with quite a few actors that you just don’t see anymore. R.I.P, Bill Paxton. 
    Furthermore, Weird Science commits itself to fulfilling the dreams of young male virgins everywhere. In what other world would any adolescent dude find himself blessed with the presence of a girl who has Albert Einstein’s brain, Kelly LeBrock’s body, and insane magical powers?
    Weird Science is a crazy ride of a movie, #Hindsighters, and just the kind of distraction that the world needs right now. So grab an Icee and curl up in quarantine as your beloved podcasters simulate a brand new episode.

    Strike Zone (2000)

    Strike Zone (2000)

    Prepare yourselves for our most special episode ever, #Hindsighters. Word has gotten out (thanks to Australia) about our little podcast, and, believe it or not, we’ve drawn some Hollywood attention.
    This week, Darth and Jason welcome a guest who is the “star” of the movie at hand, Strike Zone. That star is … Adam Brown! Try to curb your enthusiasm; Jason was honestly just getting back at Darth for tricking him into watching Mean Girls the week previous.
    Buckle up for an utterly trashtastic movie you’ve never heard of that holds the world record for most stock footage and boasts a thrilling story line where rival ex-lovers of baby-crazy Rebecca must rescue her from the city of Lost Plot Point.
    Strike Zone provides the audience with all the most implausible scenarios you could ever wish for. To that end, if a bad guy won’t stop shooting your Kevlar vest, throw that bitch a ninja star. Bitches LOVE ninja stars! It takes a Hunter S. Thompson level of self-actualization (and a lot of Variant beer) to truly appreciate this type of film. You simply can’t ignore the genuinely creepy and stilted acting of a villain who looks like David Bowie on meth.
    If you can find Strike Zone on video CD, you owe it to yourself to follow along as your beloved podcasters critique it. After all, you have to admire a film that runs wild with discrepancies in plot, quality, and basic human logic.
    In all seriousness, #Hindsighters, join your favorite podcasters for a first-hand perspective on a movie with the one actor who delivered a believable performance. Don your tube tops, negotiate your black market arms deal, and enjoy the 2000 cinematic classic, Strike Zone!

    Smokey and the Bandit

    Smokey and the Bandit

    #Hindsighters, Darth and Jason strive to provide you with aberrant content on a weekly basis, and on this particular episode, they sure didn’t disappoint. This week, they cruised back into the 70s to discuss the lauded classic, Smokey and the Bandit!
    Adam Brown donned a fake mustache to join your favorite podcasters for this special movie and his whopping 9th appearance on the show, leaving Katie trailing behind just like Buford T. Justice.
    You might want to get your ears and your eyes on, good buddies, ‘cause ol’ Smokey is bound to catch up to that badass Trans Am. Crack open your legal Coors beer and enjoy our latest episode!

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: This is Bat Country!
    It’s a brand new season, #Hindsighters, and that means big changes! As your attorneys, Darth and Jason advise you all to subscribe to (and beware of) their podcast on Youtube, now featuring faces that only a radio could love. 
    Darth celebrated this landmark episode by dressing as her idol, Johnny Depp. It’s not the first time Darth has done such and it won’t be the last.
    What would prompt Darth to dress like Johnny on this particular occasion, you might ask? In the very first installment of Season 2, your favorite podcasters discuss a true cult classic, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
    This episode has the absurdity, it has the nod to Gonzo Journalism, and most importantly, it has more than one Adam! What else does Hindsight have in store for you this year? Subscribe and find out!

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Episode 0146

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Episode 0146

    National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: “We’re at the Threshold of HELL!”
    #Hindsighters, Darth and Jason realize that you are mourning the ending of the first HIH season. Luckily, for all of you already missing the holidays, your favorite podcasters are going out with a Christmas classic in January. Better yet, they are accompanied by awesome returning guest, Morgan!
    This film is arguably one of the most hilarious and relatable Christmas movies in all of cinema history. Christmas Vacation teaches us the valuable lesson that having relatives over for a month-long visit would quickly devolve into The Hunger Games, especially if Katherine burns the turkey again. 
    In all seriousness, when Count Rugen’s brother and bitchy Elane Benes are your uptight, yuppie neighbors, adding relatives like Cousin Eddie to equation can make the Christmas season a stressful one to endure.
    The best way to survive such a season is to follow this sage holiday advice:

    Be sure to constantly chug egg nog out of moosen cups from Wally World.NEVER hang a realistic Clark Griswold from the side of your house; an idiot will call the cops.If you’re a plastic, light-up Santa and reindeer set, avoid the Griswold home at all costs.
    Jason would argue that Santa could regenerate himself and his reindeer as the supernatural being of Christmas Vacation, but Darth doesn’t want to go there.
    Hindsighters, our final thought from this Christmas season is this: Go full Griswold with your Christmas dreams. If you shoot for the moon, you might land in a backyard pool.
    Darth and Jason would also like to thank each and every one of their listeners for making this such a successful first year of #HindsightIsHorrifying. Your continued listenership and support mean the world to us, and we could not be more grateful.
    And before they get uppity, Darth and Jason would also like to sincerely thank each guest who has helped make these podcast episodes so special and fun. It has been a fantastic 2019, and the trolls best watch out, because 2020 is only going to be better and brighter. This is Hindsight, and good night.

I wanna go back...

And do it all over, but I can’t go back, I know...

If you love to reminisce about classic movies, then your Hindsight May Be Horrifying too…. From Shakespeare to Shivers…Darth Jader and Jason know how to pick em’. No topic is off limits as they dissect your favorite oldie but goody. Before you listen and glimpse the twisted minds of these two (and their guests) be sure to alert your therapist…

Youthful Adam ,

Young Adam loves this show!

I have loved being a guest on this show! Nothing beats drinking a cold one and talking about a movie I love. It’s perfect for a movie nerd like me! You never know where the conversation is going to go with the goofy tangents but the film is also discussed from beginning to end since it is played in the studio. I love trying to impersonate a character from the movie whether it’s Pennywise the clown or Arnold Schwarzenegger. My favorite one was the Jingle All the Way episode for Christmas because my girlfriend joined as a guest and all 4 of us had so much to say about it. I look forward to the upcoming all Adam episode and doing some more crazy movies in the future. I also look forward to choosing some messed up horror flicks to get under Darth Jader’s skin.

A playful look back at movie favorites

Do you often confuse people by answering them in movie quotes during everyday conversation? Then this show is for you.

Just when you think no one else knows your favorite movie like you do, Jade and Jason put you to shame! Plentiful sarcasm, occasional inappropriateness, and nonsensical banter combine with little known facts, nostalgic anecdotes, and thoughtful insights to make even the most avid movie buffs wish they were there in the studio having a beer with them.
