Sunday Cinema – Double-Feature

A serial killer is loose at a California drive-in run by a former traveling circus owner. Who is the killer? Is it the strongman? The little person? Or maybe the sideshow geek? A film trying to cash in on the “massacre” exploitation movies of the mid-1970’s, the story is thin & the acting is bad BUT the very end of the movie is creepy as hell!

Someone posted this awfully creepy gem online for all to enjoy…

Encapsulating a typical night at a Texas drive-in, “Drive-In” has an ensemble cast of basically nobodies with consistent laughs (albeit groaners) throughout. It tries to be a then-modern “American Graffiti”, but without the star power…

Someone posted this laff stomp online for all to guffaw at…

A Game of Spoilers

A Game of Spoilers

On the small screen, The “A Game of Thrones” episode from 2 weeks ago showed us the epic “Battle of Winterfell” and many were disappointed…

One of the reasons for the disappointment was being unable to see the battle due to the dark cinematography…

Had no idea that Westeros had a Starbucks! Unfortunately, HBO has now digitally removed the cup... And apparently Starbucks got a free $250k product placement

Every Easter egg in “Avengers: Endgame”…

“Avengers: Endgame” is the first in history to surpass $1 billion in an opening weekend, twice as fast as the original “Avengers”

Many theaters across the country were open 24 hours a day during the opening weekend to accomodate theater-goers…

The MCU’s “Phase 4” has a lot of punch packed into it despite “Avengers: Endgame” closing several storylines…

Sunday Cinema – “YKDTOTV”

Since this month is MattyV’s birth month, we thought it’d be appropriate to travel through the “watching years” of his life and share some of his favorite movies & television shows!

“You Can’t Do That On Television” was a staple of MattyV’s early teen years, watching episodes after school on Nickelodeon (before they got “sanitized” and became strictly for toddlers/pre-teens). YKDTOTV was a local Canadian(!) children’s show that started in the late-1970’s. In the beginning, it was a 2-hour program modeling itself after America’s “Saturday Night Live” that featured comedy skits, prize giveaways, & live bands. As it developed, they cut out the “localized” content in order to make it more palatable for syndication. In the early 1980’s it had become a staple of after-school television for Nickelodeon, a then-fledgling network geared towards kids (something that had not been done before).

The show was filled with political & social commentary, with just a tinge of gross-out humor that made kids of all ages laugh. From “Barth’s Burgery” (“What’s in the burgers?”) to the evil teacher “Mr. Shitler” (yes, that was his name and yes he sported a mustache similar to the dictator/mass-murderer), we laughed our butts off every afternoon. Interestingly enough, in later seasons one of the cast members (there was a rotation in cast members just like SNL) looked a little familiar, Alanis. Yes, Alanis Morrissette got her start as a member of the YKDTOTV crew!

We really wish that someday the ENTIRE catalog of shows would be released, as well as the television movie pilot, “UFO Kidnapped!” (supposedly the movie was a precursor to a new show starring some of the YKDTOTV cast). But alas, we have to settle for less-than-stellar copies uploaded to the internet for all to relive their own childhood…

Spoilers, You’ve Been Warned…

Spoilers, You’ve Been Warned….

“A Game of Thrones” HBOgo users had a let-down when the entire network crashed shortly before the long-awaited premiere…

The show is loosely-based on an actual event, Wars of the Roses.

Nick Fury’s eye has been teased about in the Marvel movies for the last 12 years. In the comics, he lost his eye from a grenade during WWII. In a “reboot” from 2001, he lost it during the Gulf War. Now the recent “Captain Marvel” movie changes the injury once again…

It was interesting to see how the view of “Kree v. Skrulls” switched for the audience & Captain Marvel halfway through the movie…

According to AMC, they are developing a series of TV movies to reveal Rick Grimes’ future. Along with that, Michonne is the next to leave the series…

People are trying to cash in on the end of the current Marvel era by selling opening night tickets for $5,000!

Kyle Hill of “Because Science” goes all scientific on the “Ant-Man v. Thanos’ Butt” scenario that has the internet in stitches

What if Thanos turned the tables on Ant-Man???

West Michigan “felt the Bern” a few weeks ago when he visited a local trade union. One of the downfalls of his 2016 run was his lack of a foreign policy. He hopes to change that this time around…

Not sure if this is the same article Dan the Man mentioned about Rush Limbaugh’s immigration plan or not…

What crimes would you commit in a “The Purge” scenario?

Europeans have no idea what a “surprise medical bill” is, while all Americans know all too well…

Alone Again, Naturally

The boys couldn’t get together and rather than have a gap in podcasts (again!), MattyV spends a little time talking about collections, collectibles, and the downfall of the true “collectible”

Hopefully the boys will be able to get together to see “Shazam!” and give you their impressions of the movie!

If we had “F U” money, we would create a video rental/video arcade/pizza complex. The video store would be modeled after Champion Video in Texas…

At the time this podcast was recorded, Luke Perry had passed away

Finland tried a 2-year experiment to give 2,000 citizens from all stations in life $640/mo for basic necessities to see how this would impact their livelihood. The program ended on 12/31/2018 and just about all the participants are pissed that it did not continue and now seem to be in worse shape than before financially…

Pundits are claiming AOC needs to go back and learn about socialism

“The Cooking Show with Farideh” has a cool recipe for making pizza nachos using pita chips instead of tortilla chips…


Sunday Cinema – “Strictly Personal”

For the month of March we will be looking at “military” themed movies since March contains the military’s favorite day – “March 4th”. Some old, some new, some obscure, some just plain weird.

The armed forces has always had codes and guidelines as far as dress/hygiene/safety and the best way to get that info across is through training films! This particular film has to do with female recruits and keeping up their appearance while still being “military”.

The NIH (National Institute for Health) posted this film along with other training films online for all to witness.

Sunday Cinema “I Was a Male War Bride”

For the month of March we will be looking at “military” themed movies since March contains the military’s favorite day – “March 4th”. Some old, some new, some obscure, some just plain weird.

Cary Grant stars as a French Captain (!) who marries a American female who happens to be a Lieutenant in the army. When the work in Europe is complete he tries to get into the US with her under the War Brides Act of 1945, which stipulated foreign wives of military personnel could return to the states with their spouse. Filled with all sorts of gender-confusing antics and Ann Sheridan, it’s a funny film.

Interestingly, the owner of the movie posted it online for people to enjoy for free!
