Can you bend a bullet like Beckham? Sure you can. Our friend Jen Garcia returns to talk about the misogyny that is Wanted. Grab some peanut butter and rats, forget Tyler Durden, get a robot bullet and listen to Paul’s Morgan Freeman impressions. As Jen described the film, “a back-to-back string of ‘wouldn’t it be cool if’ moments.” Enjoy the show as we audition lots of closing taglines.
We have no idea what “video” Chris wanted to share with Jen and you listeners, so enjoy some Dolph Lundgren facts.
There you have it. A film you should avoid, Unwanted. Thanks to you for tuning in and listening. Thanks to Paul for recording and our amazingly fun and hilarious guest, Jen Garcia! Like a bad sequel, we will be back sooner than expected.
We’re back and protecting the world from bad movies, like Megaforce protects… wait we watched the movie and we’re still not clear on what they do. Paul & Chris invite Arden and Jacob on to discuss spandex, 80s car chase films, and a campaign to make the thumb kiss a thing. We are also introduced to the Grease Cinematic Universe.
Find Megaforce on a streaming service near you. Should you dare.
Remember when you see someone wearing Spandex shout “BOSTWICK!” Thanks for listening! Stay tuned for more bad movies and if you want to help us pay for our website hosting, and now the Zoom subscription, please see our Saucey Patreon.
So the key to getting a Neil Breen film means going to the source. In keeping with our spy movie season, we followed the instructions on the site that said, “If you want a film other than Fateful Findings add the title to the comments section.” We asked for Double Down and paid the man for the DVD. Here we are reviewing what came in the mail, Fateful Findings. We were joined by Jen and Arden, reuniting the Masters of the Universe crew. “Basically the movie is so bad that when there is some clarity, it sticks out to you,” says Jen. Arden says, “If it wasn’t for Film Frown, I never would have been exposed to stuff like this. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.”
Lamenting that we didn’t just watch Supergirl again.
If you need a Fateful Findings drinking game, it’s here.
While Paul and our guests are not to sure about labeling this as so bad it is good, Chris wants the film to become the traditional graduation gift for students. Jen thinks this could be an excellent De Beers-like conspiracy.
Our season of spy films continues with this very strange parody. It’s 1967 and those Bond movies are making money, let’s jump in on that. Well, the first thing we need is a Connery. Hey, Sean Connery has a brother. Let’s call him? Does he act? Does it matter? Our friend Jacob Cook returns for this episode and we’re wondering if he’ll ever return. This is a bad, bad movie. As Paul says, “The main character’s super power is knowing what the hell is going on.”
The film was originally titled, Operation Kid Brother, but in some releases it is called OK Connery because they just gave up on trying to be clever.
What’s in the briefcase in Pulp Fiction may be a better discussion than this particular film.
According to Wikipedia, the Moneypenny actress made more money for this than all the other Bond films.
The Italian Dudley Moore? It’s Alvaro Vitali. And he’s not in this film, or it might be funny.
Jacob compares this film to the last parody we watched with him, Our Man Flint.
Spy season continues with Weng Weng, international little person of mystery. A parody of the Bond franchise, For Y’ur Height Only brings us quick and dirty filmmaking and a script that just gives up at some point. “Hey, it’s a parody, do we need to explain this or that? Nah.” This week we’re joined by friend and regular Arden to talk about this Filipino martial artist, his film, bad edits, repetitive music, awful stunts, worse dialogue, and nipples.
Show notes usually contain references to characters, people, films, or jokes we make about the movie we’re reviewing. There’s not a lot of notes for this film because it is just BONKERS. Arden, Paul, and Chris are lost in the script by Cora Caballas or the dubbing possibly done by Dick Randall.
We learn that Verne Troyer was actually shorter than Weng Weng.
Arden continues to drop history on us as we discuss Weng Weng’s ties to his karaoke buddy Imelda Marcos.
We have to apologize for the all the talk about peperoni nipples this season. This film and Masters of the Universe had lengthy scenes of men without their shirts on. There’s no shame in nipples or shirtless men or podcasts, right?
Sadly, Arden that is not Cesar Romero in this Filipino film.
Hey, my dialogue needs something extra. What can I do? How about a nursery rhyme? So there’s actual dialogue in the film from Rub-a-dub-dub in a gangster scene about drugs?
