Hey! It’s 2022! Here’s our first episode of this new year and it’s quite a mixed batch of films (almost twenty, in fact) which is why this show’s title makes no sense out-of-context.
In tribute to the recently passed Sidney Poitier, we cover two of his films (one a classic, the other not-so-much. Josh revisits a remake which gets way more talking time than it probably deserves, Crispin Glover shocks absolutely nobody by being weird, Olivia Colman turns in another great performance in THE LOST DAUGHTER, a woman is chainsawed in half, we look at a crazy vanity project, Chris crosses another “should have already seen” film off his list, we talk a duo of French films and so much more!
Let’s be completely honest with each other here. 2021 kind of sucked. It’s time to say goodbye to another COVID riddled year and hope 2022 is better. We’ll always have movies, though!
For the last GBW of ’21 we’ve got quite a batch of films for you (over 20, in fact!) including possibly the only foosball movie in existence, a look at P.T. Anderson’s return to the 70’s LICORICE PIZZA, we praise Andy Sidaris and his L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies, Eric Stoltz goes on the run after murdering his father, Julia Ducournau earns her ‘visionary’ title with TITANE, Aubrey Plaza gets super weird out in cottage country, New York graffiti artists get their due, Tom Selleck proves to be a worthy western hero, Chuck Norris takes on a serial killer, and so much more!
To lead you into the Christmas season we here at GBW are bringing you a look at 21 films with a bit of a holiday slant as we bring you a couple of killer Santas and a revisit to Bob Clark’s BLACK CHRISTMAS amongst all the various mayhem you’ve come to expect from our viewing habits.
We get down with Isaac Hayes in TRUCK TURNER, there’s a space vampire on the prowl, Jack Nicholson plays a werewolf in the most 90’s of ways, Josh discovers JEREMY, De Niro and Travolta go mano a mano, there’s killer cast on hand to play the staff of an underground newspaper, Chris continues his noir education, and much more!
This episode of the legit GBW we’re talking about twenty-two films and it’s an odd batch of obscurities, bikers, Blumhouse, and much more.
If you’ve ever wanted to see a drug smuggling George Clooney, we’ve got you covered. If you want Willem Dafoe as a cool leather-jacketed biker, we’ve got you covered. If you want to get RAD, we’ve definitely got you covered. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
Josh continues his viewing of the H.G. Lewis box set, we talk about a 1988 Elm Street riffing horror/thriller, we get caught in THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, various sea creatures make life miserable for humans, the Go-Go’s get their due, we get what seems to be a Lifetime-like teen movie go completely off the rails, Chris is not happy with M. Night Shyamalan’s latest, and so much more!
“You see here, we’re gonna talk ’bout twenty-one movies and you mooks is gonna listen… unless you want me to unleash a gun-touting teenage prostitute and COMMANDO NINJA on your behind…”
This time out we watched documentaries about both nudity and old school special effects (yeah, weird combo), Chris continues his film noir education with TOUCH OF EVIL, Rocky goes montage crazy, sorority girls pick-on the wrong telekinetic teen, we learn that calling a PARTY LINE can cost you your life, there’s mayhem at a haunted mansion, Josh gets super obscure with Carl Schenkel’s STRIKE BACK, a serial killer stalks 80’s Hollywood Boulevard and so much more!
Twenty new movies crossed our eyeballs since we last spoke and it’s a decidedly horror slanted mix since we just got through 2021’s Halloween season. But that’s not all!
Edgar Wright is back on the big screen with LAST NIGHT IN SOHO, we get a duo of 90’s serial killer films: one a stone-cold classic and the other a lesser-seen recommendation, Gene Simmons has issues with his sexuality, we cover a video game adaptation that contains all the stuff we dislike in modern cinema, Jess Franco pulls a bait ‘n’ switch on Josh, Chris checks out a new SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE, Barbara Crampton gets some love, pirates get up to no good, and so much more!
Welcome back to the show and here’s another bouillabaisse of nineteen films for you to snack on including more than one weird entry, a couple of sequels and someone making out with… themselves(?!?).
There’s two trips to the big screen with HALLOWEEN KILLS and LAMB, Josh wonders why a certain movie is now considered a cult film, we get down with a newer horror-western, cover a 80’s team-up that should’ve been amazing but isn’t, get nostalgic for video stores, talk about what is possibly the only movie made about hydro-line workers, give it up for “Weird Al” and so much more!
Hey, there. Do you want to hear us talk all about twenty-two new movies that include mutants, prostitutes, serial killers, gremlins, and Soleil Moon Frye? You know you do.
This time out we have more movies set in the woods/wilderness than you can shake a stick at (ha!) but we also cover such things as the latest Joe Carnahan jam COPSHOP, a duo of rock based films, Henry Silva at his most bad-ass, Joe D’Amato going cannibal, the unpredictably awesome SWALLOW, Clint Eastwood getting his western on, a obscure Australian horror flick, more H.G. Lewis, and so much more!
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!
