#167 – Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964) w/ Josh Long

167 Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Believe it or not, Lincoln is STILL out of the country, so Kyle is again forced to have a guest. But at least it’s a cool guest! His friend Josh Long, of the podcast More Than One Lesson, stops by to talk about all the low-budget horror movies he’s worked on, as well as to dive headlong into the 1964 silly-bonkers Christmas movie, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. It’s just as insane as it sounds.

#164 – The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) w/ Paul Heath

164 The Day the Earth Stood Still

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.

Be sure to subscribe to Paul’s podcasts, The Pharos Project and Hammered Horror.

#163 – Fantastic Voyage (1966)

163 Fantastic Voyage

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!

#162 – The Man from Planet X (1951)

162 The Man from Planet X

This week’s episode’s a short one because, well, the movie’s a short one, a spry little 70 minute low-budget alien invasion movie from 1951 called The Man from Planet X, a staple of television matinees of the time. There’s also a good amount of side-barring, and we have a brand new sponsor this week, so please pay attention for that little ad in this week’s “We’ll Be Right Back.”

If interested, here’s the Trailers From Hell entry we mention in the episode.

#154 – Crossworlds (1996)

154 Crossworlds

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.

David!

#152 – Death Race 2000 (1975)

152 Death Race 2000

With the week leading up to Lincoln’s nuptials nearly at the finish, the boys decide to watch a movie about people driving and killing people and stuff. It fits, right? It’s Death Race 2000  from 1975 directed by Paul Bartel and starring David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. The podcast episode is almost as long as the movie itself. So there’s that for ya.

#151 – Barracuda (1978)

151 Barracuda

As the days until Lincoln’s impending nutpials dwindle ever-nearer to the zero hour (how dramatic can we make this sound?), the fellas find time to discuss Kinko’s woes, a little bit about Doctor Who, and saying a bunch of consonants in a row, before finally talking about the movie in question, the inaptly named Barracuda, a film with the original title of The Lucifer Project, which also doesn’t make any sense but at least isn’t a goddamned lie.

#150 – Heavy Metal (1981)

150 Heavy Metal

This is a big milestone for the boys – their 150th episode! They celebrate by doing a regular ol’ episode with nothing approaching frills or even thrills. After paying tribute to the life of one of the world’s brightest comedic lights, Robin Williams, gone dark far too soon, Kyle subjects Lincoln to the animated violence and smut-filled romp that is 1981’s Heavy Metal. Could this be the biggest discrepancy in opinion since episode 9? Listen and find out!

#148 – Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) w/ Rob Walker & Joey Thomas

148 Raiders

It’s a for-no-reason-at-all big week here on the show as Lincoln returns from his month-long hiatus and helps Kyle welcome favorite guests Robert Walker and Joey ‘DeDang’ Thomas, both of many appearances on this podcast. They all discuss Steven Spielberg’s 1981 undisputed masterpiece Raiders of the Lost Ark, which if you haven’t seen, you’re a monster.  They also discuss Canada and whether one knows if they’re from there, bingeing on Game of Thrones, Joey’s next birthday movie choice (much to Kyle’s chagrin), and Rob’s impending fatherhood. It’s a grand old time, and also flag.

Watch Rob’s films at RobWalkerFilms.com, and follow Joey on Instagram because she actually uses it.

#139 – Odd Thomas (2013)

139 Odd Thomas

It’s back to basics this week as Kyle and Lincoln are back on their respective coasts in their respective homes by their respective selves. They even revisit the old subject of burial rites involving outer space. Eventually, they get to this week’s topic, Mummy director Stephen Sommers’ 2013 film Odd Thomas. It’s not very good, but there’s things to discuss. What more could you want?!?
