Deep Blue Sea 2 - For Annual Subscribers

The Smart Sharks are back to take another bite out of genetic research, nearly 20 years after feasting on Sam Jackson’s aquatic laboratory.  But was it wise to appear in Deep Blue Sea 2 without LL Cool J, a proper budget, or a wide theatrical release?  Podcasters Brock, Arnie, and Stuart are on the hook to review this direct-to-DVD monstrosity.  Take the plunge, and learn who survives these treacherous waters, when you Donate at the Great White Level today!

Goodfellas - For Annual Subscribers

The Godfather enjoyed the reputation of being the greatest gangster film ever made for nearly 20 years before director Martin Scorsese ordered actors Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci to dig a hole and bury Pacino’s dark tragedy. 1990 mob epic Goodfellas looks at Family life from the purview of low level hoods who will never get to be “made men” like Michael Corleone.  Find out if hosts Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie bust these wiseguys’ balls for their outrageous scams and gratuitous f-bombs when you become a Now Playing Patron.

The Godfather Part III - For Annual Subscribers

The Now Playing hosts may wish to be out, but Al Pacino pulls them back in for one more Godfather installment.  Part III marks the final screen appearance of aging gangster Michael Corleone, now eager to cut a deal with the Vatican and legitimize his family business.  Was he wise to to hand the puppet strings to bastard nephew Andy Garcia? And was this the wrong day for director Francis Ford Coppola to take his daughter to work?  Receive your ticket to this Gold Level opera when you Donate Now!

Avengers: Infinity War — UNEDITED PODCAST for Annual Subscribers Only

This is a (mostly) unedited podcast.  It will contain background noises, misspeaks, and other errors. Also a couple corrections or "inserts" may be in the final version and not in this release.

But we are releasing this for our Patrons of $25 or more and Annual Subscribers who want the fastest access to the show! 

 

Ten years ago Marvel Comics gambled their entire existence, using all their remaining IP as collateral, on the idea that they could make superhero movies better than anyone else. Ten years and 18 movies later, not only has their gamble paid off but few would disagree with their hubris. Now Marvel Studios makes another big bet, a billion dollars, that audiences will love what they tout as “the most ambitious crossover event in history.”  Is the more the merrier when it comes to superheroes on screen, or is this an overstuffed, overlong, bloated bust? Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob now as they review Avengers: Infinity War!

The Godfather: Part II - For Annual Subscribers

Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob are making listeners an offer they can’t refuse:  a retrospective of Al Pacino’s greatest gangster performances, kicking off with the Francis Ford Coppola classic The Godfather. Did Al have to cut the head off a horse in order to land the star-making role of Michael Corleone? And does Pacino, then an untested New York stage actor, prove to be a contender sharing the screen with heavyweight thespian Marlon Brando?

Beetlejuice - For Annual Subscribers

It’s showtime once again for Betelgeuse… better known as Beetlejuice. (Just don’t say his name thrice!)  The fast-talking “bio-exorcist” made the heads of millions of moviegoers spin when he debuted in theaters 30 years ago this month. Now “co-hosts with the most” Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart dig up this first collaboration between Batman star Michael Keaton and director Tim Burton to see if the zany afterlife comedy still kills.  Listeners can join them in the conga line when they become a Now Playing Patron!

Hellraiser: Judgment - For Annual Subscribers

For the last several sequels, the Hellraiser franchise has been chewing through bad scripts and vomiting the pages all over Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart. Now 10th chapter Judgment aims to break this cycle by employing a kooky new collective of Cenobites - including a nebbish Auditor, a glutinous Assessor, a cleaver-wielding Butcher, and a recast Pinhead (Paul T. Taylor).  Are they guilty of bearing false witness against Clive Barker by pursuing a serial killer with a Ten Commandments fetish? Donate Now to find out if there’s any soul left to tear apart!

High Tension (Haute Tension) - For Annual Subscribers

America wasn’t the only country to produce torture porn this millennium. Piranha 3D director Alexandre Aja first made a name for himself with the 2003 Gaelic slasher Haute Tension. Will Yank audiences be able to translate this ultraviolent tale of a deranged mechanic stalking two college girls in the French countryside?  And can Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart make sense of that infamous twist ending?!  Find out when you become a a Now Playing Patron merci beaucoup!

Day of the Dead: Bloodline - For Annual Subscribers

A new Day has come!  The third installment of George Romero’s Living Dead saga rises from the grave once more (despite Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart repeatedly shooting the hyper 2008 Day of the Dead remake in the head). Official reboot Bloodline finds a virginal med student (Sophie Skelton) stalked inside an underground military bunker by a lustful zombie (Johnathon Schaech) who holds the key to an undead vaccine.  Will her #MeToo moment result in a medical miracle, or merely leave a rotten taste in your mouth?  Donate today and find out!
