After an extra week off, we’re back, and you know what that means. Yes, Chris watched a bunch of suspect films while Josh continued his quest to watch 100 box sets at the SAME TIME. Of course, we’re being sarcastic, but there’s over twenty films discussed of much differing quality.
We discuss a 70’s TV movie Stephen King may have ripped-off, take a journey down the LOST HIGHWAY, Ricky Schroeder air guitars like a madman, there’s a duo of Italian zombie/cannibal splatter films, we talk about what may be Sylvester Stallone’s most embarrassing moment, wonder why anyone would bother making a POV horror film, give Cropsey and THE BURNING a revisit, and so much more!
It’s a weird batch of films this time out on GBW that runs the gamut from awkward comedy, to multiple train disasters, and even Mr. T in all his glory.
Josh continues his viewing of the H.G. Lewis, Rocky AND Mill Creek box sets, we again wonder why Keenen Ivory Wayans thought it was a good idea to try and be an action star, radiation exposed tree roots (not really) menace a town, Christopher Reeve dons a moustache and flies a plane, an obscure 70’s Canadian thriller gets massive love, Chris absolutely loves the uncomfortable comedy of SHIVA BABY, and so much more!
As per the norm we’ve watched A LOT of movies in the two weeks since we last spoke and it’s a batch filled with some sequels, discoveries and just outright “wtf?” films.
We polish off a couple of box sets we’ve been working our way through, Chris gets very adamant about Dolph Lundgren punching out a shark, we talk one of the earliest home invasion films, a blind buy from Arrow Video goes better than expected, Netflix delivers a kick-ass French action flick, Chris praises PIG with Nicholas Cage, there’s a whole lot of disaster in the air, Jason Vorhees pops in to say “hi” and so much more!
For episode 165 of GBW we’re “hitting the road” (not really!) and talking about twenty-two films of varying quality where more than one of them involves either going on a cross-country journey, musicians, or monsters.
This time Keanu Reeves dances to Rob Zombie, we talk about the O.G. gore film BLOOD FEAST from H.G. Lewis, a pair of possessed jeans carves a bloody path through a clothing store, Josh discovers a supernatural horror film he actually likes, Chris looks at Edgar Wright’s new documentary THE SPARKS BROTHERS, a couple of sequels worm their way into the show, Meat Loaf hangs out with Blondie among others, we discover they actually made a car chase flick in New Zealand, and so much more!
After three weeks we’ve returned with a brand new, piping hot batch of movies to tell you all about! To call a good portion of the 20 movies we’re talking about “bizarre” would be an understatement (hence the title).
This time out we talk about the BLOOD ISLAND trilogy, a TV movie from 1981 that wants you to “just say no!”, a newer zombie movie that just may overcome your zombie fatigue, Julia Stiles trying to make-out with her dad, Rene Cardona Jr.’s take on cannibal adventure movies, a Mormon created family movie like no other, the insane PERDITA DURANGO, the triumphant return of Robert “Stud” Logan to the show, and so much more!
It’s summer time which means it’s also vacation time which also means we’ll be taking an extra week off after this episode. Don’t fret! We’re talking about sixteen films to tide you over until then.
For some reason we both decided to watch SLAUGHTERHOUSE ROCK and it’s a rollercoaster of quality from there as we re-watched a couple of horror sequels, Hanna-Barbara attempt to make Kiss into movie stars, Bert I. Gordon brings a surprising amount of sleaze in THE POLICE CONNECTION, we have a directionally challenged disaster flick, Bob Odenkirk kicks all sorts of ass in NOBODY, Josh sees what might possibly be the worst film in the history of the podcast, and so much more!
Twenty-two movies are on the menu for this episode of GBW delivering exactly what the episode title promises: multiple monsters, psycho killers and glorious kung fu. But that’s not all…
We kick off with our take on 1984’s ALPHABET CITY before discussing two horror films that involve filmmaking, a duo of slashers featuring one from the 80’s and one trying to emulate it, beware of the KILLER RACK, Chris can’t believe the absolute rampant racism of THE TOY, there’s some death-defying stunts, James Bond takes on Christopher Walken, a plucky crew of teenagers skateboard their way into your heart and so much more!
We’re back on Zoom drinking some sort of local craft beer and talking all about the films that have crossed our paths since the last episode. This time out we have 19 films of varied quality that deliver drama, bloodsuckers and bananas(?).
We get caught with Frank Grillo in a time loop, Josh looks at Dario Argento’s INFERNO, Ron Howard smashes up cars Roger Corman style, we deal with nuclear annihilation, we look at earlier John Landis as well as later George A. Romero, Chris goes on an Oscar binge with MINARI and THE FATHER, canines get human hungry and so much more!
It’s another COVID edition of GBW and since we last gathered (on Zoom) to blab about films we viewed 19 more titles with a bunch of them oddly leaning towards evil cults and spoiled rich assholes.
This time out Chris gets FREAKY, we discuss the merits of 80’s Eric Roberts, there’s a rescue mission that isn’t really a rescue mission(?), Josh checks out a duo of lush black & white horror films, we get nostalgic for 80’s horror, Liam Neeson continues on his geri-action path, Josh learns about EVILS OF THE NIGHT and so much more!
We’re back with another 23 movie platters to tell you all about and while a lot of it turned out to be mostly mediocre this time, there are some hidden treasures amongst all the chaff.
In a completely unplanned way we cover two rock documentaries, three sequels, and a whole slew of lesser-known titles. Josh completes his Universal Monsters project, Chris is creeped out by Carl Weathers minus a moustache, we lament the horror genre of the 90’s, George C. Scott robs a bank, we tell you to DON’T PANIC, we see two sides of Mia Farrow, there’s beach genies, John Travolta in an uncomfortable situation, and so much more!
