Episode 28 - Cuba Gooding Jr. in Shadowboxer

We did it, we found the worst movie!  The first half is laughably batshit.  The second half contains the most shocking scene in any movie either of us can recall.

Episode 27 - Kate Winslet in Collateral Beauty

Is this the most pretentious movie ever or the dumbest?  Well folks, it's both.  If there is such thing as a "depressing romp" this movie is exactly that.

Episode 26 - Anthony Hopkins in Misconduct

It's our one year pod-iversary!  We cannot for the life of us figure out how Anthony Hopkins agreed to be in this baffling low budget movie.  If you can explain the plot of this movie to us you win $10.

Episode 25 - Whoopi Goldberg in Theodore Rex

It's Michelle's birthday, so as a special gift to herself she picked this $35 mil straight-to-video monstrosity.  Enjoy the podcast but for God's sake, don't watch the movie.

Episode 24 - Forest Whitaker in Battlefield Earth

Hollywood didn't like this movie but we sure as hell did!  Two thumbs way up for this adventurous romp that we would describe as both FUN and CUTE.

This week we are joined by special guest and old friend Alex Gellner to talk lights, glamour, and the shifting time-space continuum that is Burlesque.  This movie was real bad, but we think we figured out how to save it.

Episode 22 - Hilary Swank in The Reaping

When you've won two Oscars and your career is soaring, there's only one thing to do:  make a high-budget flop about the 10 Biblical plagues.  Spoiler:  this movie was the 11th, just below head lice.

Three, count 'em, THREE Oscar-winning actors in this movie.  So obviously just an all-out quality movie film.

Episode 20 - Penelope Cruz in Heart in the Clouds

Henry's on day two of a punishing liquid diet and feeling a little loopy, but not loopy enough for this to pass for a good movie.   Warm up a cup of broth and join us for a little discussion about P-Cruz and how good muffins smell.

Episode 19 - Tim Robbins in Howard the Duck

George Lucas's '86 box office bomb really pushes the limits of a PG rating, and the limits of interspecies intimacy.
