In this episode we bring Bad Movie Friday to Wednesday with a review of the 2016 Hallmark Channel classic "Love on a Limb" from the stately Piazza manor in Centreville, Virginia. The description from IMDB: "Aimie Roarke is always up for a cause and when the town's beloved oak tree is set to be cut down, she takes it upon herself try and save it."
This one's for the Star Wars nerds. In this episode we give our thoughts on The Last Jedi trailer that dropped last week. We're also joined by a couple of very special guests (also Star Wars nerds). We discuss the trailer itself and also speculate on what we think will go down in Episode VIII.
In today's episode we review Collide. We missed this one in theaters but caught it onDemand - and by, how we wish we hadn't. Here's the description: "An American backpacker gets involved with a ring of drug smugglers as their driver, though he winds up on the run from his employers across Cologne high-speed Autobahn." The movie sucked but this episode doesn't as we had a good time tearing this one apart.
We're back with a special edition of Bad Movie Friday on a Monday to review the Hallmark Channel's October Kiss. Here's the description from IMDB: "Poppy Summerall is hired near Halloween as a temporary nanny by Ryan Lawson, a widowed, work-obsessed executive. Through a series of adventures, the eternally optimistic Poppy sets out to teach Ryan and his two young children what's important in life - unconditional love, family and the joy of everyday occurrences." It features the star of one of our Christmas episodes from last year, Christmas in the City.
We're back, and in today's episode we just saw Kingsmen: The Golden Circle. We also give a review of the weird new Hugh Jackman PT Barnum musical biopic. Bet you'd never see all those words together in the same sentence, eh?
It's Friday, but it's not just any Friday. It's Bad Movie Friday. In this episode we review Summer Villa, and if we may be so bold...it may be one of our funniest episodes yet. Here's the IMDB description of this classic: "A celebrity chef who is getting over a bad review and a romance novelist who can't seem to get her next book started meet accidentally at a French villa." In this episode we talk about the film's inexplicable marshmallow scene, Hallmark movie tropes, and a quick examination of the naming convention for those Before Sunset movies. We also talk about one of this movie's actors who looks EXACTLY like an old John C. Reilly. Seriously, look at him.
In this episode we FINALLY review Ingrid Goes West - and we say finally, because we lost an entire other episode recorded about this movie due to technical difficulties. But you don't care about that, do you dear listener? All you care about is that we finally got the review to you. Well, here it is. Mike also relays a story from his time working at a movie theater in high school, where a guy said he had to use his phone in the theater to contact his sick mother.
We're back with a review of American Assassin. No preview reviews this time, as a malfunction at the theater before the movie prevented us from seeing any. We talk about the movie's bad dialogue, bad performances, and the iffy science of a nuclear bomb going off and not killing everyone who was really close to it. We also go into Mike not being comfortable with a CIA official referring to an atomic bomb as a "nuke."
On this episode we review Stephen King's It. Elizabeth fans will be sad to hear she sat this one out, but fear not loyal listeners: pinch hitting for her are comedians Kristin Manna and former guest Courtney Fearrington. We talk about horror movies in general, how Mike and Courtney showed up late and forced Kristen to save seats for them, and Mike's betrayal once he realized Courtney is one of those guys who checks his phone at the movies.
