    1. Jurassic Park (This Is Somehow Underrated) | Glaring Admissions

    Introducing Glaring Admissions, a show dedicated to watching/discussing iconic, famous movies that we've somehow missed out on! Join us on our inaugural episode as we sit down and discuss Steven Speilberg's iconic 1993 action/suspense/horror classic, Jurassic Park! It's spawned *a lot* of sequels, was worked on concurrently with Schindler's List and, surprise surprise, affirms that nobody can really do it quite as well as Spielberg can.

    99. Rad (Thunder in Your Heart is the greatest song of all time)

    Check out the full-video edit of this episode, complete with cutaways, on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCscDbMTovs2Zww6by8HSDMg



    1986's BMX, underdog, feel-good, teen, coming of age cult movie "Rad" is coming back to theaters this Thursday for a holiday called "Rad day" and, in preparation for it, I decided to sit down with my good friend/podcast co-host Raekwon to give the movie a run down.

    The film follows Cru, a paperboy/diner employee who loves BMXing as he prepares for a race against the nations best BMX racers. Along the way, he meets Christian (Lori Loughlin), a biker for the Mongoose team who quickly falls in love with him. He also butts heads with Ms. Rocky Balboa herself, Talia Shire, and Duke Best (who might be the craziest person ever). It's a movie.

    98. Wild Wild West (Damn)

    98. Wild Wild West (Damn)

    Media Obscura's back and, on this week's episode, we're tackling Wild Wild (ficka) Wild Wild West, the 1999 Will Smith Box Office bomb!



    Join Nick, Sierra & Raekwon as they reminisce about this (not so) classic 90s action comedy! It's a film they all grew up with and have some nostalgia for it, so you'll be sure to hear the good, bad and ugly about this cowboy dud.



    Also, if you're that one listener Raekwon accidentally was mean to... he's sorry!

    Team Obscura reassembles to watch the 1990 unlicensed Dragon Ball movie, Dragon Ball: Fight Son Goku, Win Son Goku. The film centers around Son Goku's first adventure to collect the seven magical Dragon Balls and features his friends Bulma, Puar, Oolong, Master Roshi, and Yamcha as well as the evil King Pilaf and... Nappa for some reason? Oh yeah, and Nick gets Wu Tai and Wu Tang mixed up.

3lliot ,

Witty!

I've learned more about Stallone this month then I ever thought I would. Good stuff.

Badmat ,

Very entertaining podcast!

I honestly have to say that I enjoy this podcast, both of the hosts have amazing chemistry. You can’t tell that this is something that they are extremely passionate about, but they don’t take the subject to serious with lead to a great listening experience. I would totally recommend this podcast!
