Mastering 'License to Drive' (1988)
If you arrive at a four way stop with a Cinemaster to your left and one to your right and Billy Ocean directly across from you, who has the right of way? As long as you’re one of the Corey’s in a mint green Cadillac then the answer is most definitely you! This week Ron and Adam get into the 1988 coming of age classic “License to Drive” featuring the iconic Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. To be 16 again and chasing that coveted driver’s license is something a lot of us can relate to. Our Cinemasters also give a hefty salute to Richard Masur as a true “Rad Dad” of cinema in the month of June. So get out of your dreams, hop into the car with Ron, Adam and Billy Ocean and see what this classic 80’s comedy is all about in this episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Mastering 'Drop Dead Fred' (1991)
Round two of our Movies that May have aged well is back in full effect and this time our Cinemasters are taking on the 1991 “cult” classic of imaginary proportions, “Drop Dead Fred”. Is this film the ultimate definition of childhood friends only you could see or perhaps a precursor to a Tyler Durden fever dream. Ron and Adam will weigh in on all things Fred in this installment and help us understand why anyone would live on a paddleboat, get a mommy and me makeover or date Tim Matheson in general. To see how things turn out for young Lizzie and her larger than life best bud, Fred, you’ll have to tune in to this episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Mastering 'Vice Versa' (1988)
Welcome Cinemaster fans to the first episode of our “Movies that May not have aged well”. In this installment we have a very special guest returning to join Ron and Adam. White Machete sit’s in to discuss the 1988 body swap classic “Vice Versa”. Our three Cinemasters discuss the ups and downs of the adventures of Judge Reinhold as Fred Savage and Fred Savage as Judge Reinhold. Two fish out of water just trying to figure out how to get back. Between sweet drum solos, mysterious skulls and awkward “Mony, Mony” montages, our Cinemasters break down this flick to find out whether it does hold up or not. Curious to see how things end up? You’ll just have to listen in on this episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Mastering 'Beavis and Butt-Head Do America' (1996)
Let’s finish out our month of Fools with Mike Judge’s dynamically dumb duo of Beavis and Butt-head as they “do” America. Charged up with 90’s MTV nostalgia and nary a brain cell between the pair, these animated fools awkwardly giggle through 81 minutes of double entendres in hopes of one big score and a new television set. Add in a bevy of celebrity voices, a Rob Zombie musical interlude and enough cavity searches to bankrupt the American Dental Association and you’ve got a modern classic for the ages. Join our Ron and Adam for one final bout of foolishness in this episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Mastering 'The Jerk' (1979)
Hey there Cinemaster fans and thanks for coming back to episode 3 of our April Fools series we’re in. This week we are looking at the 1979 Steve Martin classic “The Jerk”. Join Adam and Ron as they walk through this flick from humble beginnings in Mississippi to the height of wealth in this rags to riches tale of Navin R. Johnson. From guessing weight in a carnival to the spontaneous publicity of seeing his name in print at Hartounian’s Gas Station, Navin lives a very interesting life and our Cinemasters will be right there to walk through the highs and lows. So grab your Mr. Bubbles and settle into the tub for another foolish episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Ron and Adam cover this movie as well as a number of other Marvel properties past, present, and future as they enjoy various parts of the plot and characters in the film.

Mastering 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil' (1989)
Hey there Cinemaster fans, we’re back with our third installment of our love affair with movies. Through the month of February we are picking movies we just love for one reason or another and are sharing them with you. This week is Ron’s second pick, the 1989 Richard Pryor and Gene WIlder classic “See No Evil, Hear No Evil”. Our Cinemasters will walk you through the nuts and bolts of this comedy classic and share their fun takes on some of the goofy things a plucky blind man with a penchant for punching will do and a cautious deaf guy will say trying to keep them both from ending up in the penitentiary for a murder they didn’t commit. Hilarity ensues as these two legends light up the screen with their physical humor as well as razor sharp wit. Also featuring a young and slightly deformed Kevin Spacey and the always stunning Joan Severance, this film is a treasure from the past that our Cinemasters dug up, dusted off and served up just for you in this latest installment of the CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!

Mastering 'Harvey' (1950)
Welcome Back Cinemasters Fans. We are back for week 2 of our February affair with movies we love. This is Adam’s pick and is near and dear to his heart. We’ve all grown to enjoy Adam’s affinity for all things Jimmy Stewart. This week we delve into his favorite flick from Mr. Stewart called “Harvey”. It's a classic film from the golden age of black and white cinema. So strap in with the Rental King and Nighthawk of the North as we sit down and talk Elwood P. Dowd and his 6 foot tall rabbit friend, Harvey in this brand new episode of the CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!

Mastering 'Hot Rod' (2007)
"GODS OF WAR!!!! may your hammer be mighty."Welcome back to another episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE and since February is the month of love we're going to present four movies we have a love affair with, kicking off with Ron's pick: the 2007 Lonely Island (and perhaps more so Adam Sandburg) vehicle, 'Hot Rod'. Hot Rod is an underdog tale about a young 'boy' that wants to be a stung man just like his deceased dad and clearly has some issues with his new step father, Frank. But to earn Frank's love and respect, he must first beat his ass in a fight! Problem is, Frank (played by Ian McShane) has a sick heart and needs $50,000 to afford a heart transplant. Thankfully for him, Rod, along with his intrepid crew, are up to the task of earning the dough and helping Frank get better....and Rod can once again go back to trying to kick his ass.A silly movie to be sure, but you need to listen to this show to understand just how underrated a movie it really is.

Mastering 'Halloween' (1978)
Hey there movie monsters and welcome to our final October episode. To do Halloween the right way we decided to go extremely meta and dedicate our Halloween episode to the movie Halloween. And if that wasn’t kicking it up enough, we pulled out the rest of the stops and brought out the White Machete! In this very special Spooktakular finale we put all three of our horror-rific heads together and break down the initial iteration of the 70’s slasher extraordinaire, Michael Myers. So turn off the lights, grab that leftover trick or treat candy and fill your ears with the Cinemasters instead of those bump in the night noises. See if you can survive in Haddonfield in this episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Mastering 'The Gate' (1987)
Since it’s Halloween, we have to push the envelope a little bit. We figured the best way to amp up the podcast this week is to bring back a familiar voice (since you can’t see our faces now anyway, stupid pandemic) to help us break down the 1987 Canadian Horror Classic, “The Gate”. Matt Mercer Joins us to discuss all things demonic for a young Stephen Dorff as he and his north of the border cohorts attempt to dispatch an unholy series of little men in rubber suits trying to eat Louis Tripp. We will cover house parties, metric conversions and the best hairstyles the 80’s had to offer.

Welcome back for week two of our Spooktacular series this October of all things scary. This time around is Adam’s pick and he’s bringing us his favorite flick from an old school master of thrills and chills, Alfred Hitchock himself. There’s no creepy shower scenes or avian infestations this time around though. This time the scares come from what happens right outside your window. Your “Rear Window” that is. Our Cinemasters take a look and break down the slow burn of the 1954 Jimmy Stewart/Grace Kelly classic look at the crossroads of voyeurism and murder.

Trivia Junket: Vol. 5 (Graduation and Summer Edition)
Trivia fans, come on down! It’s time for another episode featuring one of our absolute favorite things to do and that is test our collective movie knowledge. We are back again with another round of questions for each other to see just how much of a mastery we have on the cinema. As it stands we are tied with one win a piece and a couple of draws under our belt. We always have a lot of fun coming up with, asking and answering the questions and this episode was particularly fun to make. As usual, we have no idea what the topics are ahead of time and we simply have to do our best to get as many correct answers as we can. Will there be a new champion? Will we face off and have another tie? Will we get all of them wrong and be forced into humiliation and stop doing this forever? The only way you’ll really be able to find out what happens is when you tune in and listen to this episode of the CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

Hey again there Cinemaster fans. We’re back with a different sort of program in these different kinds of times. In keeping with our updates on the Cinematic State of the Union we figured we would take on a review of the recently released on VOD Warner Brothers animated film “Scoob!” Its the latest iteration of a multi-decade franchise that generations have come to love of four teenage friends and their lovable pup mascot who have hit the big little screen once more. Ron and Adam were both able to take this new release on as it was first released and are giving you their thoughts on it. There may be a spoiler or two about some of the aspects of the film but the review is chock full of all sorts of wonderfulness. So be sure to tune in for this very special take on all things Scooby Dooby Doo in this episode of the CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!
