First off, how are you guys? Everyone doing okay? We hope so. Take care of yourselves. Secondly, my lord were we excited to have Griffin Newman, of many, many things, including the Blank Check podcast and Amazon's The Tick, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, the world's #1 Vin Diesel fan, join the show to discuss Vin's latest vinsanity, Bloodshot. Meanwhile Elliott takes us on a tour through the 4th most popular comics publisher of the 90's, Griffin offers a unified Diesel theory, and Stu and Dan do some bullshit, we're sure, but, honestly, that's really the most important stuff, because those two lovable scamps can talk up a storm!

We kick off the New Year (and the next 300 episodes?) by discussing a movie that no one has ANY strong feelings about -- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Don't worry, though -- we still manage to talk for 100 minutes. Because it's Star Wars.

Also - EXCITING NEWS! Since the coronavirus pandemic has kept us from touring, we're going to bring our live show to you via the internet! On Saturday, June 6, at 6 pm Pacific / 9 pm Eastern, we'll all be doing a video livestream on our YouTube page, complete with all-new live show presentations, a discussion of classic bad movie Howard the Duck, and a little audience interaction of some sort.

It'll be free to watch, but we'll be encouraging viewers to donate to some COVID-19 relief charities, and those who donate can be entered to win some Flop House prizes! Hope to see you then!

And, as we never get tired of reminding him, he directed Twilight: New Moon. But up until now, he's been missing one line on his resume -- Flop House guest. I'm sure now he weeps, for he has no worlds left to conquer. Chris Weitz is on this episode! And we're sorry we made him talk about Rambo: Last Blood! Meanwhile the rest of us do some shit.

Ep. #308 - Verotika

Podcast cover
Read more

Please read... bear with us on this one -- this was originally intended to be our Maximum Fun Drive episode, before the world exploded. So it may seem a little choppy in places, where we chopped out some fairly extensive MFD talk* (also there's some minor equipment/audio interference toward the end -- sorry). Thank you to our intrepid editor Jordan Kauwling for going above and beyond. Anyway, even though this would normally not be a full episode week, we thought we'd post it now anyway, to help keep folks' spirits up, and if you're wondering why we don't even mention the GIANT GLOBAL PANDEMIC, it's because we taped it before shit got real.

Anyway... OH WHAT AN EPISODE. We're joined by screenwriter and Switchblade Sisters host, April Wolfe, to discuss Wolverine himself, Glenn Danzig's directorial debut, Verotika -- an anthology of "sexy" (?) horror tales. And this time we even managed to give April a working microphone!

Brief content warning: because this is an "erotic" horror movie by Danzig, there are some references to violence against women. Honestly, the movie is so incompetent that the awful stuff mostly seems ridiculous in context, but if any reference to that is upsetting, be aware (the episode keeps it to a minimum).

* As Jesse notes at the top of the show, the MFD has been postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, although members should have gotten information to access the bonus content for this year, including The Flop House's "lost" episode on the movie Life (the Jake Gyllenhaal one, not the Eddie Murphy one), and a Judge John Hodgman where the learned judge adjudicates whether Elliott can drag Dan's Twitter jokes. If you still want to become a member, you can go to maximumfun.org/join and become a sponsoring member of the community at any time -- during this pandemic we want to take care of yourselves first and foremost, (and probably second and third too). Then if you have anything extra, donate to disaster relief. But if you're fortunate enough to have EXTRA extra, memberships do help keep Max Fun staffers and podcasters salaried, at this time when everyone is struggling, and help keep the network afloat.

Enough jabber! We love you all! Please stay safe and healthy, and we're honored to be there with you while we all struggle through this, if only in your headphones.

SURPRISE! It's an off-week extra episode, just because we didn't want to go ANY longer without discussing that purrfect mewowsical, directed by Tomcat Hooper: CATS! It's a show so big, we couldn't do it without the dual returns of Cats enthusiast, Jenny Jaffee, and musical theater authority, Ms. Natalie Walker who was AT THE MOTHERFUCKING CATS PREMIERE! We know that there's usually a bunch of gibberish at this point, teasing stuff from the episode, but just dive in, folks! IT'S CATS!

Ep. #301 - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

We kick off the New Year (and the next 300 episodes?) by discussing a movie that no one has ANY strong feelings about -- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. One programming note: we sort of threw together this episode at the last moment because Elliott was visiting New York, so we skip the usual letters and recommendation segments. Don't worry, though -- we still manage to talk for 100 minutes. Because it's Star Wars.
