202: Trading Places

IMG_1505.JPG

This week we're going back to the 80s and the chaotic land of Wall Street, but we didn't watch that movie. We watched that other movie about the stock market, the one that spring boarded Eddie Murphy into stardom as he was Trading Places with Dan Aykroyd. Yes, that's right, boppers, we watched Trading Places! Will this retelling of the Prince and the Pauper hold up? There's only one way to find out!

199: Heavy Metal (w/12 For A Penny & The Obscure Gentlemen)

Here it is, boppers! All month we've been working to figure out what our favorite movie is based on our May Madness brackets and a winner is decided today. But we're not the only ones here, because we're joined by The Obscure Gentlemen and 12 For A Penny as they both decide the winners of their own brackets, as well. Then we discuss the animated movie, Heavy Metal and its soundtrack.

197: Men In Black

After all the crazy shenanigans from last week that we'll never be able to top again, we come back ready for battle once more as we continue our May Movie Madness brackets to decide the outcomes of round 3. We're joined this week by Michael, writer of episodes of Ben 10 and recurring guest on The Obscure Gentlemen Podcast as we spend some time discussing the exploits of Agents K & J as we ask if Men In Black holds up!

A Special Announcement

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this week's scheduled program is lost to the ages. Our sincerest apologies to our guest for that episode, Ben, and our apologies to you, the listener, for not getting to hear what I'm going to call our best episode ever. But feel free to listen to the special announcement above to hear updates on our May Movie Madness brackets and click the link to place your votes. We'll be back next week!

195: May Movie Madness

This week, we're starting something a little different for the month of May. All month long, we will be pitting some of our favorite movies in combat. But, we're not the only ones doing this, listen to all the shows in the Obscure Entertainment Entertainment Network as Obscure Gentlemen will be doing the same thing with cartoons and 12 For A Penny will be following suit, but with songs! Will your favorite movies move on and make the cut? Listen to find out, boppers!

194: Iron Man

Another big week is upon us, boppers! And this one's been 10 years in the making. The Infinity War looms over us, and to prepare, we've decided to go back to the beginning. The beginning of the MCU, that is. Before there were stones, before there was a Thanos, before there was an Avengers, there was one movie: Iron Man. So buckle up, boppers, as we're joined once again by the Editor In Chief of Obscure Entertainment, James, as we ask if Iron Man holds up!

193: Superman: The Movie

This is a big week, boppers! This week, Action Comics, the magazine that introduced the world to the Man of Steel, will be releasing its thousandth issue. This is a big deal, boppers, so we figured what better way to celebrate this historic moment than to discuss the classic, Superman: The Movie! The movie that made us all believe that a man could fly. And to help us celebrate this momentous occasion, we're joined by Mr. Obscure Entertainment and friend of the show, James! So listen along as co-host Aaron (number one Superman fan this side of Bibbo Bibbowski) toasts us and makes you believe that a man can cry!

192: Rocketman

She packed our bags last night, preflight and all that stuff. Harland Williams drank Jim Carrey's pee, he introduced Ben Stiller to 7 Minute Abs, and now he's going to Mars! Travel back to 1997 for a tale as old as time, Ulysses. In which a man with a dream of one day going to space gets a chance to see it come true. This is one of Aaron's favorite comedies from his childhood, so let's see if it holds up, boppers!

191: Legends of the Fall

My dearest boppers,

The recording has been hard without you around. We had to watch and discuss a movie about turn of the century in which three brothers all find themselves in love with the same woman whilst being raised by Anthony Hopkins. Brad Pitt fought a bear and times were tough, but perhaps things should have focuses more on the bootlegging storyline. But we have sworn to find out whether or not Legends of the Fall does hold up. 

Sincerely,

Plain Zero

189: National Lampoon's Animal House

We head back to college to enjoy a Toga party, skip some classes and pledge your favorite fraternity: Delta house! This week, we watched National Lampoon's Animal House where we discuss what is largely considered to be an all time comedy classic. Maybe we'll even be able to figure out why Nick hates John Belushi so darn much. So be sure to listen up boppers, or else we'll have to put you on double secret probation!

186: Solarbabies

We're still spending time with Yama from the 12 For A Penny podcast this week, and this time we're going back to the 80s, where the future meant playing games on rollerskates and living in a wasteland. This week, we watched the cult classic, Solarbabies, which wound up being unlike anything most of us expected, except for Yama. So give it a listen as we determine whether or not this one holds up!

185: White Man's Burden

And we're back to our usual format of discussing one particular movie, and we've brought in a special guest to help get us back on track! This week we're joined by our good friend and co-host of the 12 For a Penny podcast, Yama! Aaron and Yama had specific memories of one particular scene from a movie and that's what brought us to discussing White Man's Burden, a story of an alternate timeline in which racial stereotypes are flipped and John Travolta kidnaps Harry Belefonte. So listen up, boppers, because this one's sure to be a doozy!
