Episode 54 - Grosse Pointe Blank

Grab your boom box, hold it over your head, and throw it in the garbage. Seriously. You don't even own tape cassettes anymore. Anyway, where was I? Right. John Cusack! This isn't Say Anything. It's Gross Pointe Blank. Every time I think of John Cusack, I remember how disappointed I was in Say Anything when I finally saw it. People hyped that shit up so much, man. Holy crap. Oh shit, I'm out of room.

What would happen if you took Guardians of the Galaxy and dialled the weird up to 11? Bucky O'Hare, probably. Once a comic, but remembered most as a cartoon, this bizarre space adventure turns out to be ripe for adaptation as Ashley and Yaw pull apart its elements for their own needs.

Episode 49 - A Fistful of Dollars

What would you do for a Klondike Bar? It has nothing to do with this episode. I'm just curious. Finally, our hosts tackle the classic, mostly abandoned American genre; the Western! What better way to break the seal than by taking on the definitive spaghetti Western: A Fistful of Dollars? Yaw finds a fresh spin on the original story, while Ashley gets some unexpected inspiration from The Bard.

DOOM is the timeless, heartfelt tale of Doomguy, a wayward soul with an admirable sense of duty to his fellow man – in that he must eliminate every goddamn demon from the face of Mars! It's DOOOOOOOOOM! Yes, they once made a p.o.s. starring Karl Urban and Dwayne Johnson (hey, no one's filmography is spotless), but this week, your hosts imagine how to make a newer, better DOOM film.

Episode 46 - Liar Liar

One of the most memorable films in Jim Carrey's 1990s career high, Liar Liar stands the test of time as a hilarious film about honesty, selflessness, and a man being attacked by a ballpoint pen in a public restroom. Our hosts tackle a seemingly insurmountable challenge this week as they take what they argue to be a classic of Carrey's career, and find a fresh way to spin it for contemporary audiences. This is the song that never ends. Yes, it goes on and on, my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll conti...

Dick Tracy is on the case! And on the podcast! Well, not actually like, on the podcast. Just your usual hosts this week. We're talking about Dick Tracy, though, if that's any consolation prize. I'm sorry, Yaw usually writes these and he's on vacation. Have you ever considered the possibility that unicorns went extinct because their horns are delicious?
