Ep. 323-Red Notice, The Shrink Next Door, Curb Your Enthusiasm

November 19, 2021

What if Wonder Woman, Deadpool and The Tooth Fairy got involved in a globe-hopping, double-crossing artifact heist? It’s a question that Ron, Steve, and John can now answer, because they’ve seen Red Notice, a comedy adventure starring Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds, and The Rock. The guys also catch up on the eleventh season of Curb Your Enthusiasm and talk things out about The Shrink Next Door, Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell’s new anti-buddy dramedy/thriller, which is based on a true story.

Ep. 322-No Time to Die, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and more!

November 12, 2021

It's hard not to overuse the term "jam-packed" about these recent episodes, but oh well! Maybe "wide-ranging" is a good substitute? Anyway, this week Ron, Steve, and John turn their attention to all the IMAX  content coming to Disney +, The Eternals (which John has seen), What We Do in the Shadows's bold third season, Shang-Chi (which Ron and Steve have finally seen), and Daniel Craig's final turn as James Bond, No Time to Die! Wow!

October 22, 2021

After comparing notes on recent online hype event DC FanDome, Ronald, Steve, and John take a long look at the divisive new entry in the Michael Myers series, Halloween Kills, and discuss why the The Shape endures.

Ep. 318-Watch-em-all: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Freddy vs. Jason, and A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

October 15, 2021

After 6 films in 7 years, the Elm Street franchise slowed down. Since 1991, only three entries have been released, each one a different attempt to jumpstart or reinvent the series: 1994’s Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, 2003’s Freddy vs Jason, and 2010’s widely detested remake. The films are as diverse in tone as they are qualitatively uneven. Ron, Steve, and John pop a few Sta Up tablets and lock in for a long night, because this Watch-em-all isn’t gonna finish itself.

Movie news! Ronald talks about a few recent purchases of physical media (whatever that is)! Ronald and John report on the new season of The Morning Show! And, finally, earning all these exclamation points, the new James Wan film, Malignant, has hit theaters and HBO Max. WTF? The guys sort through their shattered brains to cut the answers out, including a spoiler section at the end of the episode.
