Episode 178: Guns, Lions & Mausoleum… Oh My!

If you would’ve told us that between episodes we’d watch some movies that are so over-the-top and bizarre, we’d possibly have called you a liar – but, no, we did just that!

This time out we have Sylvester Stallone donning some cool shades, a group of teens desperately trying to see The Beatles, a hot air balloon movie that asks you to “float” (it’ll all make sense, trust us), one of the craziest and irresponsible animal films EVER made, a stone-cold noir classic, a 1983 horror flick that delivers the over-the-top goods, Josh finishing off the H.G. Lewis box set, Chris checking out Sean Baker’s latest RED ROCKET, and so much more!

Lewis box set, completely understand why Fred Dryer didn’t become an action star in the 80’s, get lost in the world of John Waters, see Jason Statham track down a cop killer, discover the 70’s western THE HUNTING PARTY, try to understand survivalists, revisit the original MAD MAX, and so much more!

Episode 176: Wizards! Aliens! Cat Juice!

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!

Episode 175: Digging 2021’s Grave

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!

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!

Episode 173: Bringing the Cool (Sometimes)

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!
