Patrick Crain of DAMAGED Viewing/OKC Film Club originally joined us to record an episode over martial arts movies, but after a very entertaining and enlightening opening segment, we decided to put a pin in the martial arts topic and just shoot the shit. We talk about Robert Altman's POPEYE adaptation, John Carpenter's underrated MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN, awkward horror convention cosplayers, and a metric ton of other random movie tidbits. We also talk about Grindhouse Releasing's incredible blu-ray treatments of Lucio Fulci's THE BEYOND and Duke Mitchell's cult curiosities MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE & GONE WITH THE POPE.
We open our latest show with a discussion over the found footage alchemical nightmare AS ABOVE, SO BELOW, then we explore the dark side of Hollywood with the indie horror film STARRY EYES, and then we wonder why we've been forgetting to do our intro.
Our main topic is all about films with the central theme of revenge. BIG BAD WOLVES, JAWS: THE REVENGE, DEAD MAN'S SHOES, IN THE BEDROOM, CAPE FEAR, THE LIMEY, OLDBOY, I SAW THE DEVIL, SWEENY TODD, and THE CROW are all discussed.

In this episode, the guys talk about important, omnipresent, and popular films that they've never seen before. Films such as THE GODFATHERII/III, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, CITIZEN KANE, E.T., and many more. We never said that we were the pinnacle of film enthusiasm, but we're trying.
We also talk about the video game EVOLVE, the Canadian horror/comedy werewolf film WOLFCOP, and the 80's slasher SLEEPAWAY CAMP.

We return from beyond the Mountains of Madness to bring to you an episode over one of the true masters of horror, H.P. Lovecraft.

Also in this episode, tangents galore!
This is a classic cut from our first year of podcasting. We were young, inexperienced, and eager to please. Enjoy this little blast from the past as Matt, Rodney, and Eric talk about one of the most influential horror franchises of all time.
At the top of the show we try to decipher why the lion's share of Super Bowl commercials seemed to have been directed by Lars von Trier, we also chat a little bit about our initial feelings towards the teaser trailer for the Fantastic Four reboot, and Eric shares what he thinks about the first full trailer for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River.
Our main topic of discussion is over our favorite character actors of genre cinema (many who acted in Highlander movies). The actors in discussion are J.T. Walsh, Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, Harry Dean Stanton, Jason Issacs, Danny Trejo, and the great Michael Ironside.
We conclude the show with Matt's segment over TV shows so engaging that we had no choice but to binge watch them. Mad Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Modern Family, and Law & Order: SVU are in discussion.
Eric returns to the show to talk about marathoning Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, watching 2001: A Space Odyssey again after ten years, and how much the month of January has been a classic bastard.
In the main segment, we talk about our personal history of video gaming. From Atari 2600 to Xbox One, we share some fun memories ranging from music we listened to while playing to some of our most competitive multiplayer experiences.
We round out the show with a discussion over Marvel Comics controversial reboot storyline SECRET WARS and what the ramifications of such a event could bring to both book and cinematic universes.
