Episode 76: Tombstone

We decided to start 2019 off right with Kurt Russel month, for which Lauren has chosen 1993’s Tombstone. In this star-studded Western, we wrangle topics like historical revisionism in the name of plot pacing, Sam Elliot’s Big D. Energy, how Wyatt Earp was essentially the original Chuck Norris and Greg finds his personal ‘Han Shot First’ moment in this film.

For Lauren’s ‘Holiday’ film she chose the quasi-spy thriller The Long Kiss Goodnight starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson. For this winter-based movie, we give praise to the great script writing of Shane Black, discuss Doll piss gasoline physics, the rise and fall of Geena Davis’ career and we ask if this movie deserves a place in the pantheon of Christmas films alongside Die Hard.

Episode 73: My Life in Ruins

For her Romantic Comedy pick, Lauren takes Greg on a European vacation to Greece with My Life in Ruins. As we try to navigate our way through this Grecian film that has nothing to do with weddings, we examine the plethora of negative stereotypes, toilet humor character names, how to crash a bus with sexy history, and why Nia Vardalos can’t carry a film alone.

Episode 71: Beyond the Gates

For this episode, Lauren shows Greg the Indie Horror film Beyond the Gates, a film which centralizes around a killer VHS board game. Apart from the numerous comparisons to another famous dangerous board game movie, we also discuss our love of the practical effects in this low budget film, the potential hidden story of the creepy pawnshop owner, the raised then quickly lowered stakes of the plot, why you should always read the instructions before you begin to play a supernatural board game.

It’s Round 3 of Video Game Movie Month and Lauren goes for a knock out with Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. As we try to figure out this critical failure of a film, we laugh at the incredibly poor visual effects, Raiden: the God of 90’s Boybands, a score of single scene character cameos, and we compare our opinions of the video game movie genre with our online followers.
