This week we are stuck in the Big Apple and there's only one man that can get us out: Snake Plissken! That's right, we're returning back to the worlds of John Carpenter and Kurt Russell, because we watched Escape From New York. Will this cult classic hold up and stand the test of time? 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. We had the whole gang from that show over to join us in discussing the legendary, "This Is Spinal Tap!" Will this comic masterpiece stand the test of time? 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! He asked us to watch Miller's Crossing, which is the first Coen Brothers film we've done for the show. Will this classic neo noir film hold up? Find out this week!
We present yet another listener selected episode, this time around friend of the show and co-host for 12 For A Penny, Joe, has donated to the Dr. Susan Love breast cancer research foundation with the intent of forcing us to watch the post apocalyptic dragon movie: Reign of Fire.
This week, we continue to do listener requests from those who donated to the Dr. Susan Love Breast Cancer Research Foundation. And today's episode was chosen by @mstern68 on twitter and he picked a doozy of a classic for us: Young Frankenstein. Does this Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder collaboration hold up? Find out this week!
This week we revisit the history of Heat Legend as we went ahead and watched 10 Things I Hate About You as requested by @nikkeya08 on twitter.
This week finds us taking to the sky as we watched Hot Shots! as requested by @xliserx on the Twitter! In this prequel to Two And A Half Men, we learn how Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer became brothers as Charlie tries to earn the respect of The Dread Pirate Roberts, while Lloyd Bridges is just being awesome the whole time! Will this parody from the 90s hold up? Find out, well, now.
This week, we're not only doing a movie request from @comedicbust on twitter, we're also talking to him! Listen to us discuss Bloodsport as we're joined by David aka ComedicBust and friend of the show, James returns as well! Kumite!!
Bursting forth like a baby xenomorph, comes a new episode, in which we discuss the 1979 classic: Alien. This week's episode was requested by listener, Bea, who donated to the Dr. Susan Love Breast Cancer Research. In space, no one can hear you scream, but luckily we're not in space so you should have no problem listening to this episode!
This week we learn just how good it feels to be a gangsta, as we watched Office Space this week, which was chosen by the winner of 2nd Obscure For A Penny Zero twitter tournament: @stewnami! Revel as we discuss Mike Judge's classic tale of life spent in a cubicle! Marvel as we get 90s nostalgic! And guffaw as we answer whether or not this movie holds up!
This week, we have the conclusion to Aaron's drunken recap of It's A Wonderful Life in which he actually talks about the movie! Unfortunately, there were problems with the audio for some reason, so it sounds a little off. We tried to fix as much as we could. Our apologies.
This week, for the holidays, we're revisiting the classic: It's A Wonderful Life. The twist is that only Aaron has watched it, and he's drunk and attempting to tell us all about it. Marvel as we manage to get 5 minutes into the movie this week!
Remember that time Pauly Shore took a role that wasn't originally written for him? We do, and we watched it this week! Plus, Stephen Baldwin overacts! This week, we asked if Bio-Dome holds up!
Our celebration of Pauly Shore continues as we watched Son In Law this week. We came home for Thanksgiving just in time for Christmas as we discuss the redundancy of assless chaps, the humor of a bloody nose, and the greatness of Steven Tyler PJs!
