Pick Six Movies is a movie podcast where each season we select six movies, all related to a single theme. We examine the history of the people in front of and behind the camera, try to make sense of how and why the movie was made, then discuss each one in way too much detail to see if they are any good.
Pick Six Movies is hosted by Bo Ransdell and Chad Cooper, two life-long friends with a shared passion for discussing things they barely understand in an attempt to make each other laugh.
S14: E4: Petals on the Wind
Petals on the Wind picks up where Flowers in the Attic left off in the second film in the V.C. Andrews-penned continuing incestuous adventures of the Dollanganger gang. All your favorites are back, including big sis Cathy, her boyfriend-brother Chris, their not-dead-yet little sister Carrie, and the corpse of their dead little brother Cory. Crazy mom and crazy grandma are back to scream and be insane, too! It’s wackier and weirder than the first time around in this classic Lifetime Movie that one of us loves and the other was intensely creeped out by…
S14: E3: Dear Santa
Can a psychological thriller be wrapped up to look like a charming Christmas tale of fate, serendipity, and romance? Yes it can, and it’s Dear Santa, the third of six made for the Lifetime TV network movies in this season’s theme “Once in a Lifetime.” This movie has snow plows, wedding rings, mail theft, New York in Canada, closeted straight men pretending to be gay, and the most devious character since William Shakespeare gave life to Iago. This movie is one of the craziest Christmas movies you will ever see and it’s a whole lot of fun.
S14: E2: Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever
Who would think an internet meme could make a great Christmas movie? Apparently nobody. And this movie proves it. Grumpy Cat is the sour puss that launched a million snarky memes and stars in her first and only movie, that was showcased on the Lifetime Network, landing in the #2 episode of the season’s theme “Once in a Lifetime” that features 6 Lifetime made for TV movies. Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever is a mash up of ill conceived ideas, poorly written dialogue, low production values and bad editing. Exactly the kind of movie we love to discuss on Pick Six Movies. Join us for some holiday cheers as we discuss all things meme related, grumpy and otherwise.
S14: E1: A Very Nutty Christmas
A Very Nutty Christmas kicks off season 14 with Melissa Joan Hart playing a former investment banker turned bakery owner in a small town who finds love over the holidays when a nutcracker comes to life. It’s a lot like the movie Elf only more terrible. But don’t worry, a thin plot filled with under-developed characters accompanied by poor audio, passable editing all work to stick the landing of the plot where (Spoilers!) the heroine is still alone at Christmas.
S13: E6: Spectre
Daniel Craig stars as 007 in the finale of this season’s theme “Bonds. James Bonds.” featuring 6 films and 6 actors in the iconic role. There are helicopter stunts, fist fights on trains, crashing planes, and international globe trotting by arguably the world’s most famous and arguably inept secret agent. Hear all about the music of James Bond and get introduced to Pick Six Bot, our very own voice activated artificial intelligence device.
S13: E5: Die Another Day
Pierce Brosnan stars in his final outing as 007 alongside Halle Berry in the 20th James Bond movie, 2002’s “Die Another Day”. This movie has ice lairs, space lasers, sword fights, invisible cars, high tech rings, laser watches, exploding planes and somehow manages to underwhelm. Dame Judy Dench and John Cleese show up to class up the place, but there’s a reason this was Brosnan’s final turn as the world-famous secret agent.
