#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!

#137 – Teddy Graham Memories (aka Kyle’s Birthday Ramble)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This week, it’s our own Kyle’s birthday so instead of talking about a particular movie, he and Lincoln drink copious amount of hard cider, sit in a stuffy New York apartment, and talk about the four filmmakers that most shaped them as young film fans/makers in college: Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez, and Edgar Wright. You wouldn’t be listening to this podcast if the boys hadn’t bonded over these four directors. That’s a proven fact. We hope you enjoy a ramble of epic proportions as Kyle attempts to stay on track and Lincoln does everything he can to derail it.

#136 – Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

136 Roger Rabbit

This week, the planets and airline paths have aligned and Kyle and Lincoln are in the same room for only the third time ever (to record a podcast…they used to live together, guys). Amid the escalated bickering levels, they also discuss the work of the late, great Bob Hoskins and particularly his amazing performance in Robert Zemeckis’ 1988 live-action/animation masterpiece Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which used to scare one of our heroes when he was a kid. Guess which one.

For next week: #120 – The Angry Red Planet (1959

120 Angry Red Planet

Kyle’s pick this week is a precursor (of sorts) to a movie we watched a while backed called “Journey to the Seventh Planet” but this one’s about Mars instead of Urinus (they pronounced things so funny in the 60s in Denmark). Anyway, this fucker’s “The Angry Red Planet” and its about the first trip to Mars when things go awry! As you can see, there’s a giant Rat/Spider/Crab monster and also what looks like Jello. So, you know it’s good.

We’ll also discuss the various awards shows and probably a bunch of other bollocks.

GET READY, KIDS.

Go figure.

Paul Walker dead at 40

I first heard about Paul Walker‘s death via text message from the fiance. “Paul Walker is dead?!?!?!?” she asked. I also had an USA Today Breaking News alert of his death. Whoa. From the Huffington Post:

Walker was best known for his roles in the “Fast And The Furious” movies.

TMZ reports that Walker was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control of the vehicle. It then slammed into either a post or a tree and then burst into flames and exploded.

It is not yet known what caused the driver to lose control, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said that the crash happened around 3:30 p.m. in the 28300 clock of Rye Canyon Loop.”

Man…

I loved “Varsity Blues” and enjoyed (as much as one honestly can) “The Fast and the Furious”, but my favorite of his films was “Running Scared“, which I’m actually only seen once, but it has stuck with me for many years. Seek it out if you can find it; it’s really, really good. I also really enjoyed “Fast 6“, despite it’s obvious flaws and ridiculousness. Plus everything I’ve ever heard about him has been positive. Not only that, he had a daughter. Very sad.

What’s your favorite Paul Walker role?
