#16 - I Broke Clint Eastwood's Hip
Somewhere in the darkest heart of Amazon Prime is a mythical place. A place where famous directors are forced to have dinner with you. A place where the tracking shots go on forever. A place where all the boring white guys are shoved into retirement. However, it's also a place where a much touted "film for adults" is kind of just a boring Lawrence of Arabia retread, exclusively shown in easy chair emporiums that happen to have movies playing on one of the walls. Two steps forward one step back, so it goes and goes. This club sandwich is on me. DISCUSSED: Touch of Evil, the modern multiplex experience, The Lost City of Z, Lawrence of Arabia, great moments in sandwiches, "better to burn out or fade away?", personable directors, the Masterclass series

#15 - Don’t You Speak Wrongly About Fuzzbucket
Jim and Patrick convene in the same room at the same time to talk about a wide spectrum of movie-related madness. At some point, they may have started bad mouthing the work of Mick Garris, but we sincerely respect him as a human being. He seems like such a nice man. In fact, Patrick will defend Fuzzbucket to the death. Hence, the name of this episode. All hail Fuzzbucket. According to wikipedia.com, Mick Garris may have written Hocus Pocus, but it’s okay, because he is responsible for Fuzzbucket. We also answer the very first listener submitted question and email, which you can send more of to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Come justify our love, send us awesome topics like the one submitted by listener Valerie. Towards the end of the episode, we offer our takes on the best and worst of Stephen King adaptations!

Topics include angina, COLOSSAL, The Now Playing Network, self-worth, relating to characters, health issues, emotional whiplash, Julian Barnes, Daria and more! They shall return in one piece (?) next week! Send us your emails & questions: email@example.com

#13 - Further Down My Wrestling Hole
By the looks of the the title, you might think that we are slipping down a slippery hole. But that's what we do. That slippery hole has nothing to do with sex, no no no. Although porn does get brought up towards the end. (TEASE). Get excited though because we actually talk to each other about PATTERSON, SONG TO SONG, television, and other alien life forms. I decided to edit out a horrendous description of a Friday The 13th TV Series episode, so I think Patrick will be very happy with me. Yes, it's long, but it's hard to edit out the kind of responses we both had to two very interesting directors like Terrence Malick and Jim Jarmusch!

#11 - Some Really Weird Crazy Questionable Stuff
Child Hitchcocks Rap Elitists Comedians Being Given Acting Awards Trent Reznor Still Writing 1984 Fan-Fiction WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO? Thank God Popcorn Supper is there to sort through all this modern mess, separate things into Right and Wrong categories. But which does Cloak and Dagger fall into? And what connects The Godfather and Jaws? And why do angels choose to dance on the heads of pins? Two of those three questions are answered here.

#10 - You Can See A Butt, It's Radio of the Mind
As the two compañeros rode off into the sunset, Jim and Patrick wondered what they had actually learned. Can a Zombie change it's stripes, can a play work on film as well as onstage, can everything really be bigger in Texas? Guns blazing, awful looking CGI squibs exploding, they cruised into oblivion and also did an extended segment about books, so sorry about that. Discussed: The Devil's Rejects, play adaptations, Julian Barnes, Urinetown, butts

#9 - Leslie Nielsen In A Speedo
Anything can be improved, even Jaws, even the 9th installment of The World's Most Popular Film Podcast. So Jim and Patrick sail away to the new Maroon Studio and wonder aloud why good action scenes are so hard to find in today's superhero landscape. Few answers are found, and more questions are raised when the fabric of space-time is stretched and torn by Wes Craven's hunger to put himself in his movies.

#8 - Tuesdays With Pinhead
I get LOST IN TRANSLATION while Patrick tells me to GET OUT. Ouch! Oh shit, I actually just felt Patrick's slap across my face as I wrote that sentence. Maybe I should edit it out? Ouch! Cut it out, Patrick, I think that's a great opening line for this passionate discussion about race, Coppola, energy drinks, hellraising dreams, and making comparisons to other movies in a lazy manner. Ouch! Sorry, I'm not editing this. Ouch! Well, the pain is a small price to pay for when I edit an episode and then do the write-up. I know there are some deep topics at hand here, and maybe both Patrick and I were more tired than usual without a quality Snuckers bar nearby to get us through. We did try Joker Energy Drinks, and well, you'll have to listen to find out how that goes. Ouch! Sorry Patrick, I fucked up our taste test for this episode. I promise to shop better next time. Ouch! And yes, I will write a better write-up next time too. I am mostly certain that people will get a kick out of our Biz Marke talk up front. Ouch!! What was that one for? Anyway, love Jim. Discussed: Biz Marke, Lost In Translation, Sofia Coppola, racism, energy drinks, Buddha cenobites, Get Out (SPOILERS), do I orgasm when I dream, deep thinking, and this episode is like WTF meets Filmspotting. Ouch! Dammit, Patrick, okay, I'm through I promise. Maybe I'll see you next week?

#7 - A Total Zagats Guide Situation
Popcorn Supper, the brains behind Semen Sniper, and Snuckers©, the folks who invented such delights as Rockin' Nut Road Snuckers, Mustard Cuttlefish Snuckers, Sugar-Free Snuckers, and Oops! It's Literally Only Sugar! Snuckers, are finally synergizing to present this totally tubular podcast #content! They talk about Manchester by the Sea or some lame thing like that, but the important thing is that Snuckers is part of a balanced breakfast* and that NO ADULTS ARE ALLOWED! CRAM A SNUCKERS IN YOUR CHUMPHOLE AND BE A CHAMPION CHILD™!

#6 - That Robot Kid Who Good At Pole Position
Jim and Patrick plow forward to discuss these two films. What system is in place to deal with an alien virus landing on Earth? What system is in place to prevent you from being shitty to three women who like you? What system is in place to keep Jim from making bad puns? All will be answered, plus: how did John Hughes lie to Patrick? Discussed: Andromeda Strain, A Summer's Tale, Harry Potter, high school, prosperity gospel, an Odd Couple sort of situation in which Jim and Patrick, despite all their differences, find themselves living together and boy oh boy do the sparks fly

#5 - Semen Sniper
Patrick attempts to not murder Jim after a bad CHRISTINE pun, which was subsequently edited out. This sends us into a tailspin, a flurry, a pinata of conversation surrounding documentaries, portrayals of depression, movie biases, and the sci-fi film from last year ARRIVAL.

#4 - Grouch The Oscar
Well, dear listener, as the Academy Awards rapidly approach everyone's speculating on the big night. We are speculating too. We are asking "Did this self-serving shit-show ever actually get it right?" And it turns out the Academy's taste and reality as we perceive it has actually lined up 6 times in it's 90 year history. Which is better than we thought, but still puts it 64,074 behind a stopped clock, which is right twice a day. In addition to our little game of "The Oscars Got It Right?!?," we ask what you would do if an alien stole your baby.

#3 - DJ Wesley And The Nuggets
Jim steps away from listening to Candlebox records to participate while Patrick teases more disgusting soda flavors to come. J&P get a little deep (?) and briefly talk politics, social anxiety, and finding hope which then segways into a review of the 1970s paranoia thriller, The China Syndrome.

#2 - Yaphet Kotto Christmas Sweater
As per the rules of WWF Wrestlemania [see last ish! - ed], Patrick has returned with a batch of potential podcast names for Jim to shrug at. You, of course, know the name we settled on was Popcorn Supper, but on January 21st Jim and Patrick didn't have a clue. That's called dramatic irony. What I'm trying to say is, this podcast is basically as good as Hamlet.
