    Episode 091 - Bill and Ted Face the Music

    Episode 091 - Bill and Ted Face the Music

    The Lodgecast faces one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. Ted "Theodore" Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. are back for a third installment of the Bill & Ted franchise. It's 30 years later and Bill and Ted are now middle aged parents with daughters named Theadora "Thea" Preston and Wilhelmina "Billie" Logan. Before we Face the Music (2020), we examine our histories with Excellent Adventure (1989) and Bogus Journey (1991). We then evaluate how effectively Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have traveled through time and if their music can truly save the world in 2020. It's a new epic adventure also starring Kristen Schaal, Samara Weaving, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Anthony Carrigan, Erinn Hayes, Jayma Mays, Holland Taylor, Kid Cudi, and Jillian Bell. It is written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, who wrote the first two Bill and Teds. Dean Parisot, creator of Home Fries (1998) and Fun with Dick and Jane (2005), directs this Bill and Ted sequel. Hear our critical response in this full episode!

    Hawt🔥Takez - The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee

    Hawt🔥Takez - The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee

    Did you know that there was a Crocodile Dundee 4?! There is and we watched this crazy sequel starring an 80-year-old Paul Hogan as himself, but also sort of as Mick Dundee. It's complicated and we'll explain to you everything in one of the Lodgecastiest movies we've ever seen. We set the tone with our feelings on the original trilogy: Crocodile Dundee (1986), Crocodile Dundee II (1988), and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001). Then we bite right into The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee (2020). Paul Hogan interacts with a wide array of fading stars including Chevy Chase, John Cleese, Olivia Newton-John, Reginald VelJohnson, and Wayne Knight. The crocodile dragons were abundant and we hope we do them all justice in our explanation of Crocodile Dundee 4!

    Hawt🔥Takez - Palm Springs

    Hawt🔥Takez - Palm Springs

    8.1% of Hulu subscribers tuned into the new movie Palm Springs and the Lodgecast was among that viewership. The movie bears a striking resemblance to Groundhog Day (1993), but it may be a premise that just works. Andy Samberg & Cristin Milioti play characters trapped in a repeating day in Palm Springs. They engage in all sorts of shenanigans as they try to escape the infinite time loop. During this romantic comedy they encounter J.K. Simmons and the eyebrows of Peter Gallagher. The heartwarming film is written by Andy Siara and directed by Max Barbakow. Love & light converge on this Lodgecast as we join in a mystical union of bone counts. What bone count do you think that is? Listen and find out. Sound off in the comments!

    Hawt🔥Takez - Relic

    Hawt🔥Takez - Relic

    There's a new horror movie out from Australia called Relic! It features a grandma, a mother, and a daughter in a haunted house. Robyn Nevin plays grandma, Emily Mortimer plays mom, and Bella Heathcote plays the daughter. Grandma goes missing and when she returns something ain't right. This movie saw a deep divide between critics and audiences in their scores on Rotten Tomatoes so we thought we'd give it a shot. The film is directed by Natalie Erika James. Jake Gyllenhaal was one of the producers. This is Relic y'all!

Always entertaining stuff!

I don't always agree with the bone count - but I always have a good time!

Fun times at the good ol’ picture show

I am liking this podcast a lot. I find myself nodding along agreeing whole heartedly with some of their reviews and shouting at my computer to disagree with others. It’s fun to see who I’m going to agree/disagree with on each episode. It’s always funny. Thanks for watching crappy movies so I don’t have to!

Love ‘em

This podcast simulates that feeling of going to the movies with a friend and then doing a thorough debrief afterward. I love putting them on if I have a long commute. The hosts are excited about movies and their varied opinions make for good debates. I also like that they have come up with fun segments including the Schnapps (synopsis) and The Salad Dragon. Give them a try and listen to a few since they have different guests who can really spice things up!
