[Schumacast] Flatliners

Angie and I are again joined by the amazing Melissa Kaercher for this epic, multi-part look at the medical thriller which not only exploded Joel Shumacher into the 90s, but marked his first #1 box office hit. We discuss the original, the remake, the proposed sequel, the music video, and even weave together some thoughts for what we'd do with a new entry exploring these ideas.

[Thundarr Road] Fortress of Fear

Mike, David, and I continue our ride as Thundarr and co fall victim to their most overwhelming threat yet, landing our heroes back in the bonds they once escaped from as they stare down the man of many eyes and his cyclopean forces of fear. Demon Dogs! Check it out here.

[Greystoked] Tarzan and the Leopard Woman

Michael and I take fellow caster of pods Carlin Trammel out for a lunch of nerds as we kick back for a cool glass of Acquanetta, as homes are invaded, leopard statues are worshiped to, and even children finally get to experience the thrill of cutting out a beating heart. Check it out here.

[A Random Podcast] Chatting Cloverfield with AJ

Download MP3

About a year ago, shortly after The Cloverfield Paradox exploded on the post-Superbowl nation, AJ MacReady and I recorded an unrelated and soon-to-be-released podcast where we occasionally drifted off topic, and one of those outtakes is this discussion of the film, the franchise, and even what could be done with Friday the 13th.

[Schumacast] Now We're Cookin'

Angie and I are joined by our friend Cat, as we swing back for a look at Joel Schumacher's short-lived attempt at breaking into writing and producing sitcoms. Check it out here.

[BarBROians] Final Thoughts

JD and I shift between hijinks and philosophical reflection as we look back on the broader career of the Barbarian Brothers, where they came from, the films they both starred and briefly appeared in, and where their lives have gone as they escaped the industry and struggled with drugs, metal illness, their own art, and passionately being the individuals they are. Check it out here.

[Greystoked] Tarzan and the Amazons

Michael and I are joined again by the beaming ray of glittery knowledge that is Melissa Kaercher, as Jane returns to the jungle at the same time Tarzan and Boy encounter a hidden civilization of amazons. And you'd think they could do more with both of these threads, but alas. Check it out here.

[A Random Podcast] Mortal Engines

Download MP3

Enjoy a random, rough, frustrated and confused little solo podcast as I get out some thoughts about Mortal Engines, the massive bomb of a film adaptation of the novel by Philip Reeve. Warning, contains a few HEAVY SPOILERS for both the book and film.

[BarBROians] Twin Sitters

JD and I dance around booby traps involving super glue and spaghetti as we wrap up the lead films of the Barbarian Brothers with a kids film where twins recruit twins and even more twins to save some twins, and then have dinner with triplets. It's wacky! Check it out here.
