This is a special one. Here's a podcast I did about 3 years ago with two of my best friends who I've known for almost 20 years. Some of it's topical but it's certainly a trip to listen to now and I hope you guys enjoy listening to it half as much as I do.
September's Reading: Live! episode is Game of Bros by Tony Torres. It's the tale of a seemingly normal bro who finds that as he enters a new fraternity there is a prophecy, nay, a brophecy, that foretold his rise to greatness and ascension to campus immortality in search of The Game of Bros.
We take a break from our string of great movies this week so we can all have a moment to scream obscenities into a pillow because of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014). Gabs is back for this installment where we dismantle one of the latest reboots but we don't bother putting it back together at the end; We just leave it in a pile on the floor and walk away.
Gabby returns for freight filled episode this week when we look at the horror classic from the master himself, Wes Craven's Nightmare On Elm Street!
New show guys! Every other week Marianne and I will watch an episode of Entourage and Sex and The City for you and see 4 awful friends fuck their way through armies of innocent bystanders on their way to fame fortune, while nothing is ever at stakes.
We checked out the movie that broke mold when it comes to 80's action. Every training montage set to fight lyriced music and every spirit animal communicated with. We watched JCVD's Kickboxer.Read More
Taped at the Reading: Live! August show featuring the half-hour pilot Don Francisco and The Fountain of Youth, the story of a 1400's spanish conquistador as he cons his way through a sleepy harbor town and woos a virgin spinster for her dowry, but is she secretly using him?
Not until today had I noticed the tire fire burning in the background of my life until re-watching Batman & Robin, a movie that I not only liked but loved when I was younger, and a movie that is so bad it borders on performance art. Gabby joins me in this camp-tastic take on the caped crusader.
What can we say about This movie other than you should watch it so you know what a bad movie looks like, sort of like studying Charles' Barkley's golf swing to know what not to do. Molly is back for a Revenge Week special as we check out Jesus freaky rapture film Left Behind staring former child star Kirk Cameron as a baby man trying to save an alternate universe Earth where a flight attendant can make the easy transition to UN Associate.
Molly is back this week and we checked out the surprisingly boring and unsurprisingly brash Crank. We ask what Bill Cosby and Jason Stathom have in common and "Al Queda? Really?"
This week we went deep into our local library's clearance VHS bin to dig out the early 90's classic "Adventures in Dinosaur City" and talk about giant dinosaur breasts.
From the Readin: Live! series at iO West, this is Family Values from the very funny Jake Brown out of NYC's The Pit.
This week we checked out the underrated Mel Gibson movie Payback and talk about revenge, Vendetta and Charley becomes "That guy" that read the book before he watched the movie.
My mom was in town so I gave her the revenge week. We talked about one of her favorites, John Ford's The Quiet Man, starring John Wayne on our way up the PCH. Along the way we discuss gratuitous boobie shots, pulling women through the streets by their hair for five miles and the IRA.
We had Molly Wixson on the show today to watch another Arnold classic, Running Man. We talk about Richard Dawson drunken night sweats, Arnold being Catniss Everdein and Charley posits his Unified Schwarzenegger Theory.
This week Gabs and I dipped into the VHS bin and watched the wonderful Night of The Comet, which is half Valley Girl, a quarter Day of The Dead, quarter Road Warrior. We find out which Ninja Turtle we are, how Norm from Cheers would fair in the same situation and how fast can Gabriella learn to fly a helicopter.
Coady couldn't make the taping this week so I sat down with Gabriella and we talked about the hysterical and brilliantly genre twisting Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.
Here's the first of what I hope is many table reads we do at iO West. This month was Fear and Loathing in Suburbia by Jon Goldberg. This unaired half hour comedy pilot is like the twisted and dark TGIF sitcom you always wanted about two estranged brothers realizing that life in the suburbs are far more strange than they are boring.
It's been a minute since we've seen a big dumb action movie so this week we get our asses to Mars with Total Recall.
We're changing it up a little this week. To go along with the Star Wars convention, all of the big news coming out about the Ja-jabrams movie soon to release and all of the original movies being released for digital download we decided to check out not only the original trilogy but the prequels as well, in one sitting. So four bottles of wine later, two bags of chips, a pint of ice cream and a chicken later we got through and watched all 15 hours of Star Wars and recorded it because raisins.
