This week, we watched the movie that helped introduce Ben Stiller to the world: Heavy Weights. Get ready to feel mid-nineties comfy with this movie.
We return back to the world of the Coen Brothers as we discussed a modern western: No Country For Old Men. A tale as old as time, Brand from the Goonies finds drug money that belonged to the voice of Bill Dauterive as he find himself on the run from Dora the Explorer while all the while Two-Face tries to figure out what's happening.
This week's movie was chosen by the latest person to win the Obscure For A Penny Zero twitter contest, @xliserx! She has chosen for us to watch 2007's Stardust, based on Neil Gaiman's book. Will this fantasy film hold up? You'll have to listen to find out!
Due to scheduling conflicts, we were unable to record a brand new episode this week! But don't you fret, boppers, because we're releasing our first ever comic book inebriation! Marvel as Nick gets completely blatto and attempts to explain what happens in Marvel's The Infinity Gauntlet!
Well, we've hit another milestone this week, fam! This is our one hundred and fiftieth episode! And like we try to do with all our milestones, we spent the week with the mighty, powerful, and benevolent force that is responsible for us being here: Arnold Schwarzenegger! Not only that, but we picked a doozer of a film from his film library: Predator! So, join us as we celebrate getting halfway between 100 and 200, as we ask if Predator holds up!
This week we finally tackle some hard hitting questions, such as which one is Akira? Why is a Akira walking to his motorcycle so iconic? Are we all Akira? And finally, does Akira hold up?
This week we're travelling back to an era in which Kenan & Kel were a duo and we're bringing Rock Solid's Kyle Dodson with us! So join us as we talk about Abe Vigoda, Sinbad, and Dan Schneider as we get to the bottom of whether or not Good Burger holds up!
This week, court is in session as we get more Stallone and Schneider! That's right, we watched Judge Dredd. Is there any way that this film from the 90s can hold up? Listen to find out! And, one other thing, I knew you were gonna say that.
This week, we attempt to answer the age old question of "How are you gonna get fired on your day off?" That's right, we watched Friday!
This week we are stuck in the Big Apple and there's only one man that can get us out: Snake Plissken!

There's only one way to find out, so strap in boppers because we're about to find out!
This week, we all gathered to help celebrate 12 For A Penny's 100th episode! If you haven't listened to that yet, you should start there.

Probably, but you should still listen to find out anyway!
This week, Nick embarks on a mission to find Shred's brother, Mitch. A mission filled with danger and intrigue. But, will he find something bigger than he expected? A conspiracy that goes all the way to the highest parts of the government. Meanwhile, the rest of us watched Rat Race.
This week finds us traveling to the future of San Angeles as we try to figure out how the three seashells work! Join us as we talk about the Franchise Wars and Taco Bell, because this week, we're asking if Demolition Man holds up!
Seeing as we're not above being a little shameless and trying to pick a movie to coincide with another movie's release in an attempt to ride some coattails, we decided to revisit the 1995 feature film debut of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Will this movie from a franchise near and dear to all of our childhoods hold up, or will it go down quicker than a putty patroller with a giant "Z" on it's chest?
This week, we revisited Ron Howard's classic about parenthood that is actually called "Parenthood." Join us as we talk Steve Martin and, more importantly, Randy Newman.
Strap in boppers, because this week we are back to picking our own movies! And Shred (Alex) has picked a doozer! We're celebrating the 10th anniversary of Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz. Marvel as real life friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost make us believe that they can be friends in a movie!
So, we're probably all asking the same question: what the hell is Voyage of the Rock Aliens? Believe us, we had no clue either. Until, @dave_cactus went and won the fourth Obscure For a Penny Zero twitter tournament and forced us to watch the forgotten film of the 80s. So join us as we decide whether or not this movie that none of us ever even heard of holds up.
This week's movie was chosen for us by the winner of the third Obscure For A Penny Zero twitter tournament, @wheeltod aka Frank Whitehouse!
