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!
The next 200 episodes begin here, boppers! To celebrate, we've updated our intro. But not only that, we took a look at one of LL Cool J's greatest performances. We watched a movie all about trying to find the cure for Alzheimer's Disease. Oh, and it's also about big, smart sharks and trying not to become the food. That's right, boppers, this week we watched Deep Blue Sea!
Here it is, boppers! 199 episodes in the making: our 200th episode! So, we're diving back into Arnold Schwarzenegger's filmography, as we do for all our milestone episodes. This time, we're venturing into Arney's softer side, as we discuss Kindergarten Cop. So strap in and listen up, boppers, to find out if this "family" comedy holds up!
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.
You've heard our picks in the May Movie Madness brackets over the past few episodes, and now found out who makes it out of the semifinals, after this only 2 movies will be left standing to duke it out to become our champion! And then, join us as we hack the planet to become elite, because we're gonna be asking if Hackers holds up!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
This week, we're going back to the 80s, to a time when Tom Hanks was known for comedies. A time when you could get away with telling your friends you were getting married a week before the actual event, and yet they still had time to plan an amazing party to send you off. So strap in boppers, because we're about to have a party. A Bachelor Party!
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!
We're joined this week by The Obscure Gentlemen's very own James, whom you might also know from 12 For A Penny. He's with us this week to help us discuss the first movie that the Pokemon gang ever had an adventure in. What happens when you clone a powerful pocket monster and give him child bearing hips? Find out as we ask if Pokemon: The First Movie holds up!
Things get pretty this week as we're joined for our third week in a row by Yama from 12 For A Penny to discuss Zack Snyder's first comic book movie, 300. In this episode, it's all about buff dewds and how they make us feel. So listen up, boppers, because this week's show will make you wanna howl as you watch the ocean with all your best bros!
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!
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!
Alright boppers, you’ve waited a week or maybe you didn’t care at all, but here it is: the top half of our all time top 10 movies! What will our number 1 movies be? You’ll have to listen to find out!
This week we're changing things up, because instead of asking if a particular movie holds up, we're sharing what we each believe to be our top 10 favorite movies of all time! Will one of your favorites show up on our lists? There's only one way to find out boppers! So listen up and let us know what your top 10s are!
