It WAS sweet when they killed Ellis…
At last, Lincoln and Kyle have been joined by the newly emigrated Paul Heath to discuss the last in our impromptu science fiction classics month, this time being Robert Wise’s 1951 masterpiece, The Day the Earth Stood Still, which tells everybody not to be a dick to each other. Also, much of the episode is dedicated to discussing the finale of the series of Doctor Who, and also there’s talk of superhero television shows, cats throwing up in trash cans, and books about egg nog.
Continuing Old Sci-Fi Movie Month, Lincoln and Kyle discuss 1966’s Fantastic Voyage, a movie where people get shrunk and enter a human body. Joe Dante later did the same thing but funnier. They marvel at the special effects, chuckle at Donald Pleasence, and muse about Raquel Welch. Also talked about are new episodes of Gotham, the newest Hobbit movie trailer, the newfound vehicular mobility of Kyle and a new job for Lincoln, and the internet sensation that is Too Many Cooks.
Next week, Paul Heath joins us! Get ready for that shit!
This week, belatedly because they were behind on everything, Kyle and Lincoln talk about a horror movie called You’re Next, which is probably one of the best slasher/home invasion/woman empowerment movies made in a good long time. They also discuss television programs like The Flash and Doctor Who and movies like John Wick and Stonehearst Asylum. So, that gives you a good idea of what’s going on with this episode. Also, there’s some sidebars and some other such garbage.
This week, Kyle’s back from his last-minute work trip and so he and Lincoln are free to discuss (and have a lot of unrelated sidebars within the discussion of) McG’s 2014 film 3 Days to Kill which was chosen because Kevin Costner’s in it. It came out in February, where most movies go to die, not not as horribly as January, alternately known as Fuck You, It’s January. Anyway, they talk about it and other things. You know the drill be now.
Be sure to watch Lincoln’s webseries Boyfriend Training which premieres Thursday, October 30th.
This week, Kyle was very quickly whisked away to a higher latitude for work, and so Lincoln was forced to watch the movie Kyle picked for Directors Not Directing Month, Robert Rodriguez’s Desperado, without him. However, he was joined by his good buddy, actress Ali Axelrad, to talk about this and other such televisual things, so it all worked out. Fun fact: Ali likes goofy looking white guys. She says so herself!

To begin the month of movies in which directors act in other people’s flicks, Lincoln has chosen to discuss Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, which features director Eli Roth as a beefy Jewish soldier. Kyle’s perfectly fine with this choice seeing as Basterds is one of his favorite movies, as you’ll hear when he prattles on incessantly about it. Also discussed are The Flash, Arrow, a play Lincoln saw that was ruined by a joke Kyle made earlier in life, and other things such as examples.
This week, Lincoln and Kyle are joined by actress, singer, dancer, and alternate groomsman Lucy Horton, an Englishwoman living in New York City who doesn’t sound like it at all, except sometimes she does. Together they discuss the 1990 cyberpunk film Hardware as well as how Lincoln has taken a lot of Lucy’s non-sexual firsts, how Gotham got better with its second episode, Lincoln turning 30, and how gross Porkins is. Like, super gross.
Lucy co-starred in Lincoln’s short film Pillow Talk, which you should watch, and be sure to follow her on Twitter because she’s cool.
Kyle is back in LA and Lincoln is back in his apartment after they both were in a mansion for the Hayes/Riendeau nuptials. You’ll get to hear a lot about them, as well as some bantering about things watched, things purchased, things broken, and things half remembered while they both try to get through talking about 1996’s Crossworlds, a direct-to-cable sci-fi movie starring Rutger Hauer and Josh Charles.
With Lincoln getting married and Kyle assisting Lincoln getting married (if the best man is really the Best Man, then why doesn’t the bride marry him?), they just didn’t have time for a full movie discussion this week. BUT they do have a little treat for you: commentary on their favorite episode of one of their favorite television programs ever – SPACED written by and starring Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson) and Simon Pegg and directed by young Edgar Wright. It’s season 2, episode 5 and it’s only 24 minutes, if you worry about the time commitment. Give the ep a watch and then listen or do both at the same time; we don’t run your life. Enjoy!! And we’ll be back with full flagship WTFAYW next week.
