Force Awakens flash reactions: **SHIT TONS OF SPOILERS....DUH**
Welp, we saw it. about 24 hours before most everyone else. Why it "officially" opens tomorrow while it was all over town tonight.. I dunno. But here you go. Firsties. Did we like it? Hate it? Do we miss George Lucas? Was a Steamboat Willie cameo really necessary? Gonna have to listen. Oh yea.. spoilers.. obviously.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens new trailer flash reactions
Dana and I (Pierre was busy at his improv class) decided to give some quick reactions to the new SWTFA trailer shown at halftime of last night's Monday Night Football game on . This was convenient for Dana, who's a huge football fan and was pleasantly surprised when his halftime of insightful player profiles and Sunday game highlights were interrupted with a new 2 minute nerdgasm that should satiate us another 2 months until the film's release. We planned to just chat for about 15 minutes, but ended up prattling on for over an hour about what clues this gives us as to the movie's content, which we're likely to be mostly dead wrong about. And, as usual, it quickly devolves to more bitching about the prequels, 'cause that's what happens when we talk Star Wars. Music: "Star Wars Cantina Song" by Richard Cheese

Die Hard movie commentary
Rachel joins us for this one, and it was actually her idea to do this movie. Not that Pierre or I objected. We love it. We all agree it's one of those movies where if you're just flipping the channels, come across Die Hard at any point in the film, and you're locked in until the end. Can't say the same for any of the sequels though. Anyway, start this commentary track as soon as the 20th Century Fox logo fades out. Also, there are lots of technical difficulties and crap but our banter is so insightful and engaging you won't mind at all.

Not to be mistaken for other Khans (Or Caans)... we are super jazzed to have the writer of the movie novelizations of Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Goonies, and Poltergeist I and II. In addition he writes his own original novels, records music, has written for and produced big time TV such as Star Trek: Voyager, Melrose Place, Xena: Warrior Princess, and all kinds of other stuff. Did I mention he's also an Medical Doctor and is making his own movie? Wait.. what the hell is this guy doing talking to us? We're not sure, but tune in as Dana Hutcheson joins Pierre and I as we mega-nerd out on all things Star Wars, Trek, music, Hollywood, genetics, centaurs, cosplay, and even first-hand accounts of hanging out with Lucas and Spielberg. Most importantly, we discuss his foray into self-produced, crowd-funded movie-making with the upcoming Production (based on one of his music albums): Wrongside Bob The Indiegogo site for the project goes live on October 15, but in the meantime, please Like the info page on Facebook for updates and such: https://www.facebook.com/wrongsidebob Part of the crowd-fund proceeds will go to something amazingly cool; A project that 3D prints prosthetic hands for kids who need them.

I'm in the video game! movies... The Last Starfighter and Tron
Every kid's dream (well ok.. maybe just hardcore nerds like Pierre and I) was that the video games they were playing might become real life. So naturally, as kids we loved movies where this happened. First we reexamine The Last Starfighter, where an ambitious kid from a dead-end small town gets a chance to be a space fighter hero. Perfect 80s sci-fi fodder. Next we delve into the original Tron. Where a young Jeffrey Lebowski takes a turn as a computer hacker and embarks on an awesome cyber adventure. Ok, maybe it really wasn't the origin story for The Big Lebowski, but I like to pretend it was. Music: "Rerezzed" by Daft Punk, "Video Game Song" by Nightcore, "End of Line" by Daft Punk

A Nightmare on Elm Street movie commentary
Here we go again, with another one of these totally original, unique movie commentary deals that no one else on the internet ever does... ahem.. You remember this one right? Something about juggling and a guy with bad skin and a fedora? Well, with the recent pasing of the great Wes Craven, Pierre and I delve into the start of arguably the top horror movie franchise of all time. True, Freddy came around after Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, but his one-liners were much more well thought out and timely. To sync this one correctly, start the commentary track as soon as the "New Line Cinema" flashing red letters disappear. Or.. you know, just listen to us yammer on about random stuff with no visual context. If you're into that kind of thing.

They Live and Rowdy Roddy Piper (R.I.P.)
If you wanted to make a profound social statement in the 80s, you knew what to do. Unite the forces of John Carpenter and Roddy Piper, of course. These two 80's icons produced the cult classic Pierre and I dicuss today, after Pierre's long hiatus on the run from vengeful Quakers. (and month-long vacation in Miami) Before we weigh in on Mr. Piper's Opus, we talk about his wrestling days, and how he was possibly the greatest professional wrestling heel ever. Also we plug our new politics-only podcast you definitely want to avoid if you're either of our fathers. Music: "For Everyone" and "I'm Your Man" by Rowdy Roddy Piper

Letterman and Late Night with Will Presti
So... Letterman retired? Oh, they did not tell me. Comedy Writer and host of The Midweek Minute Will Presti joins us as we talk Dave, late night, TV comedy in general and where it's headed, and some 90s Sega Genesis for good measure. Will actually wrote some of Dave's last jokes to air, so yea, this was kind of a big pull. Go us. Also, ignore Travis's 4th of July hangover (see, he's patriotic) and the Skype audio issues because your complaints will only be met with laughter or indifference. Check out Will's awesome Youtube show: The Midweek Minute with Will Presti And Booking and stalker email and whatnot: https://willpresti.wordpress.com/ And that Twitter thing the kids are doing: https://twitter.com/MidweekMinute Music: "The David Letterman Show Intro," "What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding" by Elvis Costello, "Everlong" by The Foo Fighters

Reboots, Remakes, and Regurgitations with Jerrod Kingery
Dear god when will it stop? Jerrod from CineSnob.net joins us to tackle that existential question and break down which reboots are worthwhile, which are pointless, and the upcoming ones that make us cringe. Then we play producer and pick our own old movies we'd like to se rebooted, because there's no doubt that Hollywood listens to this podcast religiously. As usual, we meander way off course and talk some MST3K and Tommy Wiseau and whatnot, but you'll listen regardless because you need it like oxygen. Check out Cinesnob.net at, well.. Cinesnob.net Music: "Bohemnian Rhapsody" by Queen but sung by some guy, "I Remember You" by Skid Row, "One Track Lover" by Doctors Rick Dagless and Lucien Sanchez.

Remember when Metropolis and Smallville got completely destoryed while Superman was off being angsty? No? Oh.. yea, I guess movies are different now. How about when Batman didn't care about Gotham and just wanted to kick Superman's ass. And he was played by Ben Affleck. Good god.. what kind of world is this for our kids? Anyway, yea, we go back to a time where Superhero movies were fun and inspiring. Not so much emo and brutal. How quaint we were. Music: "Superman Theme" by John Williams, "Batdance" by Prince, "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" by Spin Doctors

Soul Man Movie Commentary
So, Pierre and I decide to get topical. When this movie came out in 1986, even the trailer made us /facepalm as 10 year olds. But recently, unless you've been avoiding all news and social media, you may have noticed recently life has kinda imitated "art." Could it be the head of the Spokane NAACP was inspired this awful movie? Ok, probably not, but we decide to make the commentary a little more serious, as only American middle class white guys can when spouting off opinions about the depressing state of race relations. (like our opinions matter most) To sync up the commentary with the movie, start the track when the "NEW WORLD PICTURES" logo comes up. *By the way, if you like these commentary tracks, naturally you should love Rifftrax! They do what we do, but a lot funnier and they sort of came up with the idea 25 years ago. Click below to view their site - it won't hurt, we promise.

Stephen King Movies & Jay W Friedman
This week we are delighted to have fellow native Floridian Jay W Friedman, host of "I Don't Even Own a Television" with us to talk about the best (and not so best) novels turned into major motion pictures. Since we're all big King fans, we pretty much stick with those. Also, Travis fucks up and forgets that King actually did write "The Mist," the movie ending of which was so fucked up even King didn't imagine it. Listen to I Don't Even Own a Television: http://idontevenownatelevision.com/ Music: "The Shining" by Black Sabbath, "Pet Sematary" by The Ramones, "Bill O'Reilly F*ck IT Remix" by Lucian Piane

Star Freakin' Wars
Well, after nearly 6 months on the air we finally tackled the holy mother of retro podcast fodder... the Rubik's cube. Oh, and we also get a bit into Star Wars. Ok yea, it's all about Star Wars. And oh boy, is this one a clusterfuck. Guests coming and going, dropped Skype connections, you name it, we bring the amateur hour swag, and you love it. Carl pops in as our 1st ever repeat guest, and Bulent Hasan from the Generation-X Wing podcast joins in as we bounce around mindlessly from the original trilogy, to the prequels (which Bulent tries valiantly to find some redeeming qualities about), to our expectations for the Force Awakens. So, let's jump right in, shall we? Generation-X Wing: http://www.generationxwing.com/ Bulent Hasan's work: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2899765/ Music: "Star Wars Theme" by John Williams, "Lapti Nek" by Michele Gruska, John and Joseph Williams

MST3K talk with Josh aka "The Wizard"
Josh from RedLetterMedia.com joins us from the sweltering wasteland that is Milwaukee while Pierre takes a break from his JadeHelm15 doomsday prep to gab about our favorite of all favorites, MST3K. Trav does his usual name-dropping of a cast member he knows and Josh reveals he's more up on his MST trivia than the hosts. Josh also gives some cool behind the scenes info on RLM shows Best of the Worst and Wheel of the Worst, while Josh and Pierre lament how useless their years of college trying to break into media were. Check out the Wizard's Wizardry here: IfIHadAHiFi: http://thehifi.blogspot.com/ and https://ifihadahifi.bandcamp.com/ Info on the band's upcoming Chicago gig: http://www.electricalaudio.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=66046 Music blog: http://daysonanddaysoff.blogspot.com/ And of course: Redlettermedia.com Episode Music: "Love Theme from Mstery Science Theater 3000," "Wild Rebels Cereal," "Idiot Control Now," "Mighty Science Theater" by Joel Hodgson, Charlie Erickson, Josh Weinstein, and Best Brains, Inc.

Supermodels in the movies
Supermodels were a really big deal in the 90s. So big they couldn't be contained on the runways or magazine covers. Why not the movies too? Well, we'll tell you why not.. Pierre and I wax nostalgic about the SI Swimsuit Editions and lament a few awful movies, while trying in vain to understand the plot of Cindy Crawford's only major motion picture before losing our minds completely and prattling incoherent nonsense. Or, maybe we were just summarizing the plot of Fair Game. Either way, can anyone tell me why Cindy never learned to walk like a human? Music: "Supermodel" by RuPaul, "The Kathy Ireland Song" by MST3K cast

Ahhhhhhhhnold: The Running Man and Total Recall
A staple of growing up in the 80s was undoubtedly Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. Long before he was cheating on Maria Shriver and being the Governator, he was making movies. These are 2 of our favorites, and as we discovered, may be our favoites because they are the least typical Arnold movies of the time. Pierre and I re-cap these 2 great flicks and also discuss why this is the greatest avatar of all time: Music: "The Arnold Schwarzenegger Song" by byggarebob123, "First Dream" by Jerry Goldsmith, "See you at the Party Richter" by Austrian Death Machine

Friday The 13th Saga
You remember these films.. right? We kinda did. I invite my old friend and bandmate Carl to talk about this innocent slice of our childhood (pun sorta intended) and Pierre, Carl, and I manage to recap every friggin movie...sorta. As you might expect, near the end we completely lose our minds and start blathering nonsense. Of course, that could be said about the entirety of every show to date.. so enjoy! Music: "Friday the 13th theme" from the movie, "Man Behind the Mask" by Alice Cooper, "It's Jason Voorhees!" by Beats Antique

Star Trek/RIP Nimoy Pt. 2
So Pierre, David, and I drone on and on about Star Trek. Including looking back at all the original cast movies and talking about what we anticipate the next "new" movie installment will look like sans JJ Abrams. Apparently it's being directed by the Fast and Furious guy.. so.. .. ok. There are some audio issues with this one thanks to Skype, so blame them. Musical Interludes: "Theme from Star Trek the Next Generation" from the show, "Star Trekkin'" by The Firm

Star Trek/RIP Nimoy Pt. 1
Another 2-parter. What is this.. an episode where Picard gets abducted by the Cardassians or the Borg? (that was a Star Trek joke) No.. but seriously.. we get long winded (again) talking about Nimoy, Spock, and the Star Trek franchise in general. We're joined by Pierre's brother-in-law David Valadez who swears he's not a Trekkie, he just happens to know more Star Trek trivia than http://en.memory-alpha.org/ We focus on Nimoy's influence on the franchise in Pt 1, Pt. 2 will focus on the movies and sci-fi in general. Musical Interludes: "Theme from Strar Trek" by Alexander Courage, "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" by Leonard Nimoy
