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.
