This week extra special guest Allison Dore is back to swing back in time to look into 1987's Swayze pants classic Dirty Dancing! First we talk about the original catskills resort and the lady who ran it and how dear god it sounds like fun before having just the loveliest time watching sexy people dance at each other.
This week in honour of National Canadian Film Day we watched the highest-grossing technically Canadian film ever made: Resident Evil Afterlife! We talk about what is happening in the movie, why it is happening, and do not come up with any answers, but have a lot more questions. We kinda lost our minds.
This week we have Nigel Grinstead back to do an episode that is nice, darn it! Rough few weeks so why not watch something delightful, so we hopped back to just 2017 to catch Paddington 2! We first talk about bears, well Dave does, because he grew up in a town covered in bears before watching the most delightful bear of all in Paddington 2. It's just so crazy good.
This week we follow up on our last episode about the drunken Royal Navy with another very drunk very British Episode, we swing back to 1987 to catch Withnail & I! We talk about the terrifying spectre of alcoholism, funny chickens and how the whole point of this movie is probably to make you feel kinda icky.
This week to get ready for Withnail & I we're talking about something very drunk and very British: The Royal Navy! We talk about the centuries of Naval history where everyone was proper loaded, then discuss the day they took away British Sailors free work booze.
This week we put on pleather pants and the very longest leather coats and make out stinky way back to 1998 to watch Blade! We go over the economics of vampire blood banks and the value of orange juice and oreos, vampire hunting parenting and the fact that vampire hunters nor vampires ever thought to ask a hematologist... anything?
This week we're zipping back to 1992 with special guest Brandon Ash-Mohammed to have a look around and watch the Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Dan Aykroyd, River Phoenix and James Earl Jones movie Sneakers! First we talk about old-time phone hackers and the weird awful things they did after that, then get upset at a real weak soup of a movie.
This week Alex Wood is back with Dave and Meg to swing by 1981 to have a look around and watch Outland, a movie with Sean Connery, Shotguns, spacesuits and uncomfortable endless anxious tension! We talk about the camera on a stick robot humanity flung into space to look at Jupiter and then go over space bleak: The movie.
This week, instead of our episode we hope you'll support Canadian Stand-ups like us and maybe buy some albums to help out maybe? If you're wondering what's up Dave wrote a thing about it you can click here to read, and he'll explain it, back to normal next week but this week, solidarity, and again in our defense the union meeting was at a bar.
This week we slip back to 1990 to catch a high school drama very clearly written by a 43 year old man, Pump up the Volume! We first talk about the radio and some gross boys who had a boat radio station because of how boring the BBC was, then get viscerally upset at this weird piece of garbage featuring.
This week we're back in 1982 to catch the Dolly Parton Burt Reynolds best darn thing we ever did see The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas with special guest Clare Belford. We go over a bunch of historical bawdy houses before losing our minds at how much we love Dolly Parton, this movie and Dolly Parton.
This week we're in 1984 to watch Michael Douglas swing on ropes in Romancing the Stone! We first go over a tale of eating off treasure and figure out how British treasure law works before we go over a kinda fun kinda slow except when there's crocodiles movie with special guest Ashley Cooper!
This week we continue our study of the late seventies, heading to 1978 to watch a hugely successful Clint Eastwood movie involving an Orangutan, construction site and meatlocker boxing and Beverly D'Angelo in a nice big sweater. With special guest Alan Shane Lewis we first go over the funniest of the great apes before diving into a movie about... still not sure!
This week we stayed over in 1979 from last week but left New York and checked out San Francisco with guest Rebecca Reeds before going over a movie with an amazing pitch that is all over the place bananas: Time After Time! Malcolm McDowell, Mary Steenburgen and David Warner do a movie with an insane plot and play it so straight you<re quite totally baffled by the whole experience!
This week we throw the agenda out the time machine window for Season 3! Dave and Meg and special guest Shawn Hogan go over why Movie New York AKA actual New York in the seventies was like that before gawking at it in 1979s youths punching epic The Warriors!
Content Warning: This movie is real sexual assaulty in a few ways and we talk about 'em. This week we're back from our holiday carb binges and we wanted to do a meta thing and watch a movie from the year we were born set in the year we... are in. So we watched 1987s The Running Man! We go over how close it got, our favorite murder clown from the TV and Jesse Ventura's wig being on wrong.
This week the holidays ate our time so it's a bonus episode! We made too much podcast the week we watched Beethoven so here it is now for your holiday listening. See you after I bring my Dad his 10 pounds of Christmas Bacon! Not a euphemism, literally 10 pounds of bacon.
This week it's Meg's Birthday so favourite guest Vance Banzo is here to watch a forgotten action movie from the latter half of the nineties to celebrate the miracle of Meg's life and her besting of the sea for another year in their lifelong struggle. Under the influence of Cake we go over Bruce Willis' many wigs, everyone's bad accents and shooting your movie in what seems like a whole buncha places.
This week we mess around with the format again with Friend of the Show Bryn Pottie and watch the classic 1992 dog movie Beethoven! We go over the evil vet's evil plan, which is quite evil you see, marvel at the lady marmalade organ lady and criticize Bonnie Hunt's wifery.
This week, we bring back our very first guest to give a test-drive to the new season 3 format, so we went back to 1999 to have a look at Toy Story 2 to figure out why it's gross with Bobby Knauff. Consumerism and emotional button-pushing, turns out.
This week, we crank up the time machine and head back to 1962 to have another look around and watch its second highest-grossing movie How the West was Won with special guest Dylan Gott! We go over how Canada did a socialism and everything was fine before trudging through a technical feat about... like rivers I guess?
This week, we drop off the time machine to get an oil change and instead play you a clip of your co-host Dave's act from a couple months ago! We'll be back next week with our usual history/movie oddities.
This week we head back to 2009 to have a look around and watch its second highest grossing movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with guest Bryn Pottie, we go over a both very slick and very bumbly crime from '09 before tturning our attention to a movie that<s too in-betweeny to really stand on its own.
This week we pack up a case of Jack Daniels and head back to 1976 to have a look around and watch it's second highest-grossing movie A Star is Born with special guest Karen Geier! We go over the tale of a cool but also awful bank robbery before wading into the boozy swamp of Streisand that is A Star is Born.
This week we decided to jump ship from our regular examinations of Sylvester Stallone's hubris to have a look at Vin Diesel's hubris instead so we swung back to 2015 to catch the passion project loosely based on his D&D Campaign: The Last Witch Hunter. We talk about how talking about D&D to any outside person is inadvisable, and go over the insane ramblings of a megalomaniacal nerd that really, really doesn't like ladies.
