The delightful Chapo dad joins us for Death Wish 3, possibly the simultaneous nadir and high point of the Death Wish series.
Why did we spend so much time on this uneven philosophical road movie? Who the fuck knows! By the way, for this episode Jen was calling from the surface of Jupiter, where she went to get more stupider.
Niel Jacoby (@fuckinalpamare on Twitter) joins us to ask: wtf, France? Also big fat trigger warning on this one because we spent a lot of time mocking the movie’s incredibly cavalier attitude towards sexual assault.
We go incredibly deep on a movie that probably didn’t merit it. So much so that you’re getting a two-parter! This one was written by the guy who co-wrote Back to the Future and it’s tailor-made for dads who wistfully scroll through classics dot autotrader dot com on weekends.
Jen and Tim are joined by author and podcaster R.S. Benedict to discuss one of the few films ever shot entirely in Esperanto, which is the only film ever shot entirely in Esperanto and starring William Shatner.
Tim and Jen are very excited to have animator, voice actor, and writer Bill Kopp on the show to discuss his career, especially the beloved-but-now-scarce Fox Kids show Eek! the Cat. Sorry we had to record Bill on Edison cylinder lol
For our 50th episode we go hard af on Leonard Maltin and his stupid movie guide with @MrMattJay
Thank you to all our patrons for being so patient with us! As your reward, this month’s bonus is an extra-stuffed (nearly two hour) episode about a widely reviled mondo slavery documentary. Jen and Tim are joined by T. of the great Champagne Sharks podcast and we all tackle one tough-to-watch but necessary film.
Jen welcomes special guest Julia Schiwal to discuss a wonderful Thai biopic about a trans woman who becomes a fighter in order to forge her own path.
The movie Julia recommends at the end of the show is Adam barfi (1995)
We’ve unlocked this previously patrons-only episode because abortion access in the US is arguably even more precarious now than it was in 1984, and we believe the dishonesty of media like The Silent Scream needs to be discussed today.
Jen is joined by reproductive justice activist Mellie Macker (@eponawest on Twitter) to dissect the mendacious thinking behind a notorious piece of pro-life propaganda.
