Episode 202: Assassins, Thieves & A Cocaine Bear

Maybe if we took a cue from one of our furry friends and snorted a bunch of powder, some of the lesser films of the 18 we cover this time out might have turned out better.

This time out Josh headed to the theatre to check out COCAINE BEAR, the dream team of JCVD and Sho Kosugi disappoints, Susan Anton gets ready for the Olympics, we look at Oscar nominee TRIANGLE OF SADNESS, a duo of assassins arrive both with different agendas, Ryan Reynolds and friends are forced to plan a heist, listener recommend THE DON IS DEAD delivers, and so much more!


Episode 201: Where the Drive-In Meets Gymnastics (?!)

You know, after a hard day of fighting off ravenous fish, ghosts, and serial killers there’s nothing more that we here at GBW want to do than relaxing gymnastics!

This time out we cover 19 films including Howie Mandel being raised by wolves, a buddy cop flick that hasn’t aged particularly well, JCVD going to prison, Lou Ferrigno channeling a Poe(?) story, hungry piranhas, Gene Hackman coaching the heck out of basketball team, Stallone attempting to sing, and so much more!

Episode 200: Uwe Boll

Can you believe it? We’re 200!

To celebrate this occasion we’ve brought in a special guest: Uwe Boll. That’s right, the legendary (in more ways than one) director sat down with us to discuss his return to filmmaking with the police thriller First Shift, educated us on how he independently made over thirty films, speaks on his favourite gangster movies, told us about a meeting with Jean-Claude Van Damme and more from the good doctor.

After our interview stick around as we talk about ten films we watched since last time including Rutger Hauer delivering the goods yet again as a villain, Chris looking at last year’s horror hit SMILE, Tom Selleck vs. Gene Simmons and his robots, a plane crash with consequences, a group of old folks with a malicious streak and other celluloid distractions!

Episode 199: We’re Hip

We’re so hip to so many things. We’re down with the sleaze, we dig the art deco, fringe jackets kick-ass, and don’t get us started on the splits!

We have 22 movies to talk about this time including a look at Brandon Cronenberg’s INFINITY POOL, a noir set in the snow, two teen girls hitchhiking across the wild frontier of 70’s America, a girl gang who takes no guff, Japan’s version of Dracula, a long-lost adult film that defies description, Uwe Boll’s most brutal film, “The Year of Van Dammage” continues and so much more!

Episode 198: Smackdowns & Cheap Thrills

There is definitely nothing even close to a theme in the twenty films we’re talking about this episode but there’s some pleasant surprises, we still wonder who actually likes Count Yorga, and there is one moment of pure hatred.

Things are kicked off right with a DIE HARD clone that’s pretty rad, we look at Steve McQueen’s final film, Damien Chazelle brings the Hollywood excess in BABYLON, there’s some giant animals on the loose, a Nazi zombie causes havoc, we look at how mental health was handled in the 1940’s, another 70’s TV movie doesn’t live up to expectations, Maxwell Smart gets “nude”, and so much more!

Episode 197: 23 for 2023

New year. Same us. Which isn’t a bad thing as we offer up our takes on twenty-three films that cover almost every genre you can think of.

There’s disaster in the air with an exploding volcano, Johnny Cash plays a hard-boiled criminal, mutated sheep go on the attack, we talk Spielberg’s love letter to film THE FABELMANS, Lou Ferrigno returns as a Greek god, we get ridiculous with 2022’s FALL, a guy has sex with a hot female alien, Josh continues his trek into film noir, John Waters serves up his biggest slice of depravity and so much more!

Episode 196: Use Your Fists

There’s a whole lot of ass-kicking going down this episode in amongst some tender drama and bowling ball boners. Yes, it’s the off-beat mixture of movies you’ve come to expect from GBW – and we have 22 of them for you.

We talk a handful of 2022 films (a couple which make our top tens), Charles Bronson and Nicolas Cage make an appearance, Michael Mann makes his directorial debut, Chris thinks calling Uwe Boll the “worst director ever” is not true, Josh polishes off the PSYCHO franchise, Joan Collins fights off rubbery ants, we get a cool mustached action hero nobody has heard of, and so much more!

Episode 195: The Cool & The Kumite

When you’ve got it, you’ve got it, and in this episode we meet a handful of characters who do. It’s an eccentric mix of twenty-one films making us this episode and it’s sure to make you do the splits between two chairs!

Just some of the films covered include Josh embracing “Noir-vember”, Chris getting DRESSED TO KILL, a mad bomber with a penchant for rollercoasters, Tori Spelling and her psycho boyfriend, us wondering just who thought Yorga was a good name, Nicolas Cage doing his version of TAKEN, a duo of religious themed horror movies, the MF’ing Kumite, and so much more!

WARNING: There are some spoilers during DRESSED TO KILL, so if you don’t wish to hear them skip from about the 1hr55 mark to 2hr06 mark. Word to  your mother.

Episode 194: Clapton Rage!

There’s not a lot that can send us into a ranting mess of rage but, this episode, we manage to get worked up twice!

This time out we cover 20 films including the much maligned HALLOWEEN ENDS, another film noir that delivers the goods, Clint Eastwood in full-on macho/sexist mode, some kids being shot into space, a bonafide John Carpenter classic, the return of Robert Ginty to GBW, us questioning how Bert Convy became famous, RIGHTING WRONGS kicking all sorts of ass, and so much more!

Episode 193: Beware! The Pod

It’s October so that means this episode is definitely skewed towards a certain genre. 

We cover 22 films including getting to see Peter Cushing like we’ve never seen him before, a duo of Blumhouse films that question our faith in them, a coven of 90’s high school witches, a couple of lesser-known films from Fred Olen Ray and Wes Craven, Josh finishing off the Romero zombie series, an early 70’s Japanese goth film, more Jess Franco, and so much more!
