    Every man has a destiny...
    And YOUR destiny is to listen to our brand new episode of They Called This a Movie. 
    This week, we're here to ruin mythology, as we watch The Legend of Hercules, a cheap knock-off of slightly better movies.

    They Called This a Movie Episode 89 - Motorama (1991)

    This week, we head out for the ultimate road trip. 
    We uncovered a hidden gem this week, as we watched an absurdist trip into the American Southwest.

    It's time to put the pedal to the metal, as we go headlong into this wild ride. Join us as we discuss the star-studded cast, the violence that befalls our pre-teen hero, and try to interpret the film's wild ending.

    They Called This a Movie Episode 88 - John Carpenter's Escape From L.A. (1996)

    They Called This a Movie Episode 88 - John Carpenter's Escape From L.A. (1996)

    Snake Plissken is back. 
    And so are we, as we roll right along with a brand new episode of They Called This a Movie. This week, we go to the distant future and the year 2013, as we travel to a world where the police arrest civilians with impunity, an authoritarian president rules with an iron fist, and Los Angeles is a charmless hellhole. Truly, an alternate universe. 
    Kurt Russell and John Carpenter re-team to bring Snake Plissken back from the dead to escape from another one of the United States' major metropolitan areas. This time, he hangs ten out in La La Land in order to rescue the president's daughter and a doomsday device from the clutches of a revolutionary. It's John Carpenter's Escape From L.A., and it's basically just Escape From New York with more surfing and basketball. 
    Join us as we discuss the shoddy CGI effects, how this movie should've been made in the 1980s, and Peter Fonda and Kurt Russell surfing tsunami waves.

    They Called This a Movie Episode 87 - Tiptoes (2003)

    3 Oscar Winners. One Emmy Winner. And Kate Beckinsale. 
    We've got another weird one for you this week, as They Called This a Movie covers one of the most misguided Oscar-baity films we've seen in a long time.
    What do you get when you have a script that's way too long, a premise that's straddling the line between woke and offensive, and add Kate Beckinsale's lucky hat? You get Tiptoes, this week's baffling entry in our quest to find the worst and weirdest films of all-time. 
    Get comfortable for this one, because this movie is anything but comfortable. We discuss Kate Beckinsale's early 90s wardrobe, Matthew McConaughey's frightening character turn, and question the decision of casting Gary Oldman as a) a little person and b) Matthew McConaughey's twin brother.

    They Called This a Movie Episode 86 - Love on a Leash (2011)

    The World's Best Trick... 
    ... is a brand new episode of They Called This a Movie, and boy do we have a doozy for you this week. 
    What do you get when you combine a reverse werewolf dog, a chaste woman with a fetish for the color green, sexual predators, suicide attempts, overbearing mothers, and not a single note of music anywhere to be found? Why, you get Love on a Leash, quite possibly the worst film we have ever covered. 
    Strap in as we dissect this incompetent mess, as we discuss everything from how much we dislike the dog, how manic the editing is, and one of the most insane endings we've ever encountered.

Here For It

They take this show seriously, but its fun! Great guests. Great questions! Keeps me entertained and I never leave it feeling like I wasted my time listening to guys ranting about how much they hated a movie (which is most podcasts). I honestly enjoyed it and can't wait to listen to the next episode!
