117 INST on SNIPS

September 19, 2022Podcast

This week is a little different because the episode is the audio from the video we made for the Scavenger’s Network Independent Podcast Showcase! Was that confusing? Just wait until you hear how bad Micah fucks everything up in this one. Listen to find out what we watched this week! Also, there are weird transitions and sounds because it was a video, so just imagine us while you listen. Or if you want to watch the video we’ll put it up in our Facebook group. (Join it!)

Thanks again for having us, Scavengers Network!

Thank you so much to our patrons and all our supporters!

116 Jack

September 12, 2022Podcast

It’s not “Robin Williams’ wildest role yet,” and it’s certainly not “non-stop laughs” despite what the summary tries to tell you before you watch Francis Ford Coppola’s 1996 film Jack, the hilarious tale of a kid who is destined to die young. (It’s not funny.)

Be sure to listen for information about SNIPS, Scavengers Network Independent Podcast Showcase, which we’ll be participating in next weekend!

113 Ace Venturas

August 22, 2022Podcast

TRIGGER WARNING: This episode contains discussions of transphobia and homophobia because the first movie we watched (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) was extremely transphobic/homophobic. Jen’s sorry, ok? She’s sorry! She didn’t know! She’s so sorry! But at least we are now officially done with Jim Carrey!

August 15, 2022Podcast

Unfortunately we had to see Jim Carrey’s dong again. Help us decide whether it’s “third time’s a charm” or “three strikes and you’re out” for Jim Carrey as we crack ourselves up talking about 1996’s The Cable Guy!

111 Die Hard With A Vengeance

August 8, 2022Podcast

Simon says: Listen to this podcast about a blockbuster from summer
This isn’t the greatest film, but we’ve watched dumber

It stars Bruce Willis and Samuel L.
A mysterious German puts them through hell

They have to solve riddles and race across town
If they fail, things go boom, and Bruce Willis will frown

You know it’s 1995’s Die Hard With A Vengeance, you’re no sucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

110 Endless Summer II

August 1, 2022Podcast

Jen wouldn’t stop her incessant bleating about how tired of Summer Blockbusters she was, so we’re taking a break of sorts and chasing waves around the world. This week instead of explosions and guns we talk about Bruce Brown’s Endless Summer II from 1994. And we’re joined by a returning special guest, Elliott!

109 True Lies

July 25, 2022Podcast

It’s the worst of our summer blockbusters so far—1994’s True Lies! Hear Arnold Schwarzenegger talk to horses! Hear Jamie Lee Curtis scream! Hear yet another absolutely baffling See You in the Funny Papers! Also, help us answer: Is this our “that’s what she said” episode? If so, we promise never to do it again.
