A rotating panel of very funny movie fans ready to talk about really bad schlock.
Also we talk with the people in and behind the scenes of your favorite cult films.
Worst movies of the decade
What were the worst movies of the 2010’s? Oh, we’re going to tell you. Comedian Mike Spiegelman (my bro) is burning to read his list – so I let the guy burn! What do you think is the worst movie of the last ten years? There are lots to choose from. CLick here to

“Loqueesha” with Damona Hoffman
“Loqueesha” is about a white man who pretends to be a black woman to land a radio advice show job. Lots of people attacked “Loqueesha” when its trailer came out. Some defended it. And Amazon Prime decided to put it on its streaming platform next to “Fleabag” and “Patriot.” It’s a mystery that even Bosch couldn’t solve (slowly).
I asked Damona Hoffman, a real African American woman who dispenses wisdom on her popular podcast, “Dates & Mates” to help dismantle this movie.
Gotti gets whacked!
Adam Felber (Nobody Listens to Paula), Susie Felber and I review John Travolta’s bomb, “Gotti” film.
Here’s a great article from Deadline about Gotti’s fate as a movie:
John Travolta Cries Foul Over “Fake News” Reports On Mafia Movie ‘Gotti’
EXCLUSIVE: John Travolta told Deadline he is upset that fast-spreading news reports twisted the truth as Lionsgate pulled his upcoming film Gotti off its release calendar 10 days before its bow. He worried the reports marginalized what he considers one of his better performances as the iconic Gambino crime family head John Gotti in the Kevin Connolly-directed film. Given how the subject matter lends itself to phrases from mob movies, it’s easy to see how the blogosphere might speculate this film would, well, sleep with the fishes. The truth is far different, Travolta said. (READ FULL)

“Mr. Saturday Night” w/ @AdamFelber
Billy Crystal, co-wrote, directed, starred and conducted his own Oscar campaign for this movie “Mr. Saturday Night.” It’s about a comedian who steals everyone’s Jackie’s jokes and ends up wearing really bad make up that’s supposed to make you look old.
Adam Felber (Wait… Wait… Don’t Tell Me and an alleged podcast with Paula Poundstone) and I dig deep into our love for Billy Crystal and why this film didn’t work for us.

Given his success in the early days of television, you’d
think that Buddy Young Jr. (Billy Crystal) would be coasting happily into retirement alongside his wife, Elaine (Julie Warner). Instead, Buddy is an acerbic blowhard who alienates his brother, Stan (David Paymer), and everyone else who fails to bow to his bullying. His agent, Annie Wells (Helen Hunt), has positioned elderly Buddy for a big movie role, but his irreverence might come back to bite him one last time.

One Minute of Rocky at a Time
Usually, we review an entire movie. But recently I got to be a guest on “Rocky Minute” The daily podcast in which hosts Doug Greenberg and Jason Hanes knockout the Rocky films one minute at a time. Apparently, Dueling Genre is a whole network of shows that are just people analyzing a movie 60 seconds at a clip.
Thanks to past guest and FOH (friend of the host), Paul Sullivan, I got to be on three days in a row. I had a good time. All three episodes are a fun listen. Here are one or two episodes that I was on. Not sure how many I’ll post. But please check them out and take a listen.
Here’s a review of “Rocky IV” I did on this show with Adam Felber and Rico Gagliano.
“The Room’s” Carolyn Minnott Interview (Lisa’s mom)
Carolyn Minnott played the mom in “The Room,” you know the one who drops the bomb that she has cancer, but it never comes up again? Carolyn gives her side of the story and dishes the dirt about being in the worst movie ever made. Hear more interviews below.
Welcome to Proudly Resents. The obsessive podcast about cult movies. Today it’s all about the Room. The Room is considered the Citizen Kane of bad films. Check out past episodes where I talk to other actors from the film and the director Tommy Wiseau. Today I have the pleasure to talk to the woman who played a character that definitely had cancer. It’s official, I’m talking to Carolyn Minnott.
I’ve been lucky enough to record interviews with Tommy Wiseau, Denny Aka Phillip, Lisa’s frisky best friend aka Robin Paris and script supervisor Sandy Schklair with his controversial interview.
Song, Baby in a Bar at the end of the show is by Rob Paravonian
