TV & Film

Two fat nerds attack Movies, TV and Video Games!

Episodes

We start the show this month with a bit of a chat about gaming, including Mitch deleting “Toy Blast”, Joe’s kids going “Pokemon Go” crazy while on holiday in Tasmania, The “Fire Pro Wrestling World” New Japan DLC, and going old school with original Xbox games.

We both had trips to the movies, so we discuss “The House With A Clock In It’s Walls”, “Venom” and why “Predator” is no way near as good as the original one.

In TV Mitch wraps up “Castlerock”, Joe watches the ABC sci-fi drama “Glitch” on Netflix, and we go down two massive rabbitholes, firstly with toy trains and demolition derby on Amazon Prime, then with Insane Clown Posse and the Gathering of the Juggalos on YouTube.

Plus we have just a little bit of time left to wrap up this past weekend’s wrestling events.

This month we continue with our 80's Sci-Fi Fantasy theme by watching "The Sword And The Sorcerer".

A slight stuff-up with where we thought it was streaming did mean we ended up watching the RiffTrax version on Amazon Prime, but I think we still got the idea that this 1982 "classic" may not have been as good as we remembered it being.

Still, a Barry Gibb lookalike in a fur coat with a three-pronged sword can't be all bad, can it?

Both Mitch and Joe were big fans of Burt Reynolds. Over the course of our show he is the only person we've dedicated a whole episode to, so we we're saddened by his recent death. 

As a special tribute we are reposting episode 77 from our A to Z specials that originally posted in September 2017.

After a month and a bit away from the show, Joe has got his head back together (even if we did get the episode number wrong), so we sat down and had a chat about what we’ve been up to since we last recorded.

Joe has got a new PC, so has been dabbling in streaming his Xbox One to it via Windows 10 and Mitch has finished “Far Cry 5” and is looking for a new game, but after reading the Box Brown graphic novel “Tetris: The Games People Play” we fall back down that familiar rabbit hole.

In movies Joe was disappointed with “Ready Player One” and down-right angry with “A Wrinkle In Time” while Mitch loved “Mission Impossible: Fall Out” but thought “Skyscraper” was stupid.

After that it’s TV time, as Joe also really liked the Masters of The Universe doco on Netflix “The Power of Greyskull”, and Mitch dove in deep into “Castle Rock”.

This month for the mini we go back to 1983, when Joe was 12 and Mitch 10, for a movie that was right in our wheelhouse, the sci-fi fantasy "Krull".

We have fond memories of this from when we were younger, especially for Joe, but does it hold up in 2018? Probably not. It still has some pretty cool concepts though, plus an awesome signature weapon.

We start off the show this month re-capping our big weekend at Continuum Con 14, including DJ’ing the costume ball and hosting the movie trailer panel, then we jump into TV with Joe getting his Netflix True Crime fix with “Evil Genius” and “Making A Murderer” and Mitch binging the new season of “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” as well as a dose of trash TV for the both of us with “100% Hotter”.

After that we jump into the two biggest nerdy movies showing at the moment, with a spoiler free “Deadpool 2” chat, and a slightly spoilery “Solo: A Star Wars Story” conversation, plus we manage to sneak in a little wrestling chat at the end with news that New Japan star Tetsuya Naito will be here in August for Melbourne City Wrestling.

35 years ago a little known actor, Nicolas Cage, had his first starring role in the teen comedy-romance, “Valley Girl” so to celebrate this milestone we went back and watched it for this month’s mini ep.

Joe had fond memories of this from back in the day, especially the soundtrack, but turns out Mitch remembered it more for the trailer than the film itself.

Does it still hold up after all this time? Did it ever? And what the hell is going on with Cage’s chest hair?

This month Joe has started a new mobile game called “The Muscle Hustle” and binge watched the street racing reality series “Fastest Car” and the coming-of-age cartoon “Big Mouth” on Netflix, as well as starting the Karate Kid spin-off “Cobra Kai” and the classic sit-com “The Golden Girls”. We even managed to start season 2 of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Westworld” too.

For movies Mitch goes in-depth, but spoiler free for “Avengers: Infinity War” and Joe raves about “The Greatest Showman” and “Peter Rabbit” before we wrap up the show with a chat about our adventures at Free Comic Book Day.

This month, inspired by the new graphic novel "Is This Guy For Real? The Incredible Andy Kaufman" by cartoonist Box Brown, for our not-so-mini mini episode we go down a crazy rabbit hole.

We discuss the life of Andy, as depicted in the book, including his early years, Elvis impersonations, Foreign Man, his role on the sitcom "Taxi", his alter-ego Tony Clifton, and,  more close to our wheel houses, his foray into the world of professional wrestling for his feud with Jerry "The King" Lawler.

We also discuss the 1999 Jim Carey film "Man On The Moon", dive into the very strange "My Breakfast with Blassie" and watch a lot of YouTube clips of the man himself.

We start off this episode with a little bit of co-op gaming chat, then Mitch talks about his new release purchase, "Far Cry 5" before moving on to reality TV at it's worst in "Age Gap Love" and it's best with "Nailed It". Then Mitch was disappointed with the new series "Rise" and the re-boot of "Reboot", but we both dig the new animated "Corner Gas".

In movies, Mitch goes to the cinema to see "Pacific Rim: Uprising", is impressed with "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri" and Joe and his wife have differing opinions on "Annihilation" and "Spiderman: Homecoming" before both enjoying "Hurricane Bianca".

Then for our topic, seeing as it was Wrestlemania week, we talk about how we became wrestling fans growing up, meeting each other at the Prince Pat’s, how we got involved in the local scene, our thoughts on the actual Wrestlemania 34 event, and Joe gets emotional watching the new Andre The Giant HBO doco.

Inspired by our chat about bands and gigs on our last episode, for the mini this month we decided to look at our favourite made-up band movies.

Mitch goes with the classic mockumentory metal band Spinal Tap, from "This Is Spinal Tap" and Joe goes with the Oneders from the 1996 Tom Hanks written and directed "That Thing You Do!"

On the show this month Joe plays some "Viva Piñata: Party Animals" with his kids, and finishes off the some more "Borderlands 2" DLC before making the most of his new Netflix subscription and mainlining all of the new season of "Black Mirror" and the 90's themed "Everything Sucks". We also look at Joel McHale's new show "The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale" and Mitch finally uses his Amazon Prime to watch "The Tick".

In movies we briefly talk Marvel's "Black Panther" and Oscar winner "The Shape of Water", go a little bit spoilery on "Get Out", look at docos "Saving Bankys" and "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", and dive into 70's custom van culture with the unimaginatively titled "The Van".

The for our topic, inspired by our recent outing to see Pop Will Eat Itself, and Mitch's experience at Queen + Adam Lambert, we discuss our favourite concerts, as well as some tips on concert etiquette, Mitch's mosh related injuries, and the bizarre world of the Juggalos.
