This week, Meg is on assignment so Kat Angus is guest Megging for our trip to 1928 to have a look around and watch the highest-grossing movie The Singing Fool with special guest Nigel Grinstead. We go over whoopsie-doops antibiotic discoveries, pregnancy tests before the stick you pee on and then watch the most horrid thing we've sat through thus far for your entertainment.
This week Meg is away so we revisited one of the finest auteurs in bad cinema and checked out 1986s Cobra starring Sylvester Stallone, his ego, and some actors I guess. With Special guest Craig Fay Dave goes over one of the laziest, uncooked movies ever made that is still somehow watchable.
This week we unwisely fill the time machine with hydrogen and float back to 1937 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with special guest Lucy Gervais! We go over Mae West's cheeky puppet innuendos, an air disaster, several other disasters and then chew through the obviously problematic but wicked pretty cartoon made by moustaches, amphetamines and aaaaaaall the cigarettes.
This week we pack our aluminium time tubes with yellow cake and fly on back to 2003 to have a look around and then review it's highest-grossing movie The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. With special guest Blayne Smith we go over the unfortunate events of 2003 and then tussle with Tolkien, Meg's hatred of B-list Hobbits and the fat-shaming of Samwise Gamgee.
This week to celebrate our hundredth episode we got nostalgic and maybe self-indulgent and invited guest comedian Alex Wood to time vortex thingie back to 1996 and review the movie Dave and Meg conceived the show over: Star Trek First Contact. We sing, we laugh, we posit old-timey borgs and just generally have a grand time. Thanks for listening.
This week we armour up the time machine and slide back to 1940 to have a llok at the war and catch the highest-grossing movie: Rebecca with special guest Ben Beauchemin. We go over a very disconcerting winning streak for Hitler and chat about the crazy drunkard who went against him and then review a movie that switches protagonists halfway through and features a used car salesman/cousin/love interest?
This week we invite frequent time flyer Ryan Horwood back to take a trip to 1956 to catch this podcast's favorite actor in his boxing movie: Somebody Up There Likes Me. We go over the movie and are amazed to find Paul Newman can make old filmed play black and white boxing nonsense watchable as all hell.
This week we saddle up a time elephant and safari our way back to 1950 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: King Solomon's Mines with special guest Jennifer McAuliffe. We go over the Korean and Cold wars because we have to, then go over a tale of some people who wanted to go somewhere and then did and there were lots of animals and that's it, really.
This week Meg is back pulling time levers to get us back to 1934 to have a look around and watch it's highest-grossing movie: Viva Villa! with special guest, writer and tweetist Karen Geier. We go over the dirt stormy criminal shooty child exploiting nightmare of 1934, then ponder the layers of wrong and bad that make up Viva Villa!
This week, Meg is on assignment so Shawn Hogan is here to reload the time rods and bring us back to 1952 to find out what it was like and watch its highest grossing movie: The Greatest Show on Earth! With special guest Lukas Stark the mystery entertainer we go over the awful, awful year of dead kings and smog clouds before going over an ode to the deceased Ringling brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, which should have closed good riddance. This movie is a horrific clown show that almost broke us, Jimmy Stewart playes a murder clown who never takes his makeup off, not even the weirdest part. Tune in!
This week, Meg's away so 1964 guest Ryan Horwood and I flew back to catch the second highest-grossing movie of 1964, the misogynist masterpiece that needs a long talk about consent while serving prison time: Goldfinger. Marvel as James Bond is drunk, terrible at his job, and repeatedly captured! Also he's a sex criminal.
This week Guest Meg Sam Burns and Special guest Rebecca Reeds man the time pumps on a trip to 1986 to see our Podcast's hero's academy award winning performance in Martin Scorcese's pool movie sequel The Color of Money. Tiny Tom Cruise spazzes out like six times. It's Great.
This week we maple up the time machine and scoot back to 2006 with special bilingual guest Hunter Collins to catch the highest-grossing Canadian film until 2010: Bon Cop Bad Cop. It's super great if you are a bilingual person who has lived in both Toronto and Montreal and have a background in hockey controversies.
This week Meg is still outta town so Nigel Grinstead is pedaling the time bike as guest Meg and we're headed back to 1932 to have a look around and catch its highest-grossing movie Shanghai Express! We talk about aviation pioneers of both the baby losing and pioneering types, go over the time some mounties spent a month killing a snow terminator and then review a movie that is pretty much a real-time train ride with a real chill german lady: Shanghai Express with guest comedian Cathryn Naiker.
This week Meg is away so resident Star Treksman Will Noye and Dave egg nog drunked the Time Machine to 1994 to watch it's Star Trek movie: Star Trek: Generations, which looks good but ain't super great. Lotta jokes about costuming.
This week Dave and Meg fire up the Time machine and get so egg-nog drunk they crash it into 1998 and catch its holiday... thing called Jack Frost, starring Michael Keaton as the voice of a George Clooney puppet who is also a dad and can snowboard because Harmonica snow Christmas Robert Baratheon with an earring. Happy Season everyone!
This week, we leave the time machine parked and let Dave play Radio for Christmas. Enjoy the clip, back next week with a movie show! Scheduling in December is nightmare!
This week, it's Meg's Birthday so we took the time machine back to 1984 to check up on one of our childhood favourites: The Neverending Story. It holds up! Join us as we go over creepy book men, suspiciously well-stocked school attics and the sad horse thing... God the Horse thing...
This week we strap on some extra time rockets and head back to 1957 to have a look around and then watch its highest-grossing movie: The Bridge on the River Kwai with guest comedian Clare Belford. We go over trying to go to high school in Arkansas and Russian space tricks before going over maybe the best-made movie we've seen yet: The Bridge on the River Kwai.
This week we took a time-fireplace back to 2007 to have a look around and watch it's second highest-grossing movie (for #1, see episode 083) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with resident Harry Potter consultant and comedian Nile Séguin. We go over a bummer year, delight over Scooter Libby's name and then watch a Wizard movie where death death death. Death. (It was great)
This week we invite Blayne Smith back to take another joyride in the time machine to watch another old-timey serial remake: The Shadow from 1994 with Alec Baldwin! We go over the radio show history and the insane remake that features a number of mind control suicides and a villain who travels by mailing himself.
This week we pushed the time machine past all reasonable limits and made two stops, one in 2006 to look around and have a look at it's highest grossing movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. We talk the poo-salad of a year that is 2006 and try to talk about the movie... but felt for some awful, self-destructive reason that we should hop to 2007 to see Pirates of the Caribbean: at World's End. We did. We do not know why. It hurt us, but it made us strong? With Special guest comedian and fine fella Alex Sparling!
This week we penguin oiled up the Time valves and flew back to 1961 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: One Hundred and One Dalmatians with guest comedian Eric Andrews. We go over the first human in space, brave busrides, whoopsie nukes and on purpose enormous nukes, then go over the Disney's classic toned-down Taken remake with dogs.
This week we fire up the time machine for our last trip to the seventies to look around at 1972 and watch it's highest-grossing movie: The Godfather with guest comedian Marito Lopez.
