For part 1 of a 2 part Oscar Episode the guys finally got fresh. After being beat down by bad movie after bad movie, Nick, Stephen, and friend of the pod Alex Mallonee discuss their top 10 films of 2017. They award their own oscars, discuss who had the best years, and just really what tickled our fancy this year.
Happy Oscars Day to all you cool cats out there. Feline like a not-so-great film to counter-balance the celebration of this year’s best? Nothing is finer than Oscar-award winning actress’s Halle Berry most superiorly inferior super-hero film, Catwoman! Join Nick, Stephen, and special guest Derrick Lamb as we discuss this unintentional farce.
Are you already having Olympics withdrawals, well we have the show for you, D2: The Mighty Ducks. Just like T2, D2 is an action romp filled with.... action? It features the classic matchup of youth hockey titans Iceland and USA (most of which come from the same Twin Cities area in Minnesota). This episode Nick and Stephen with help of an actual hockey player Matt discuss everything from Trinidad and Tabago having a hockey team, to why the hell they kept Goldberg in despite giving up obscene amounts of goals.
We hope you listen to this episode about love and grief and shallow selfish characters only caring about their love and grief. Ah, life! Nick and Stephen and special guest (A WOMAN) Rachael break down the movie meant to break you down. They talk new versions of the movie, Swankiest moments, and a new segment, Rachael's Rant!
P.S. I love shoes
You remember a few month ago when Jackie Chan came back? Yeah do you remember Fifth Element? Well good news, we reviewed Rush Hour 3 for you! Two special guests, Genevieve and Alex, joined Nick in studio for a bonus pod! The first special guest pod of many more to come. Anyway, Rush Hour 3 did not age well. We recorded this at the end of last year, and had this movie come out in 2017 it would not have survived a week. Shoutout to Brett Rat (our new nickname for him) Watch the movie or just listen, we get pretty deep.
When the Game Stands Tall. What does that even mean? Nobody knows and we're pretty sure that's the point. Regardless we watched a movie about the worst high school in northern California and we talked about it.
Strange indeed. To celebrate the new year and the new legality of everyone's favorite substance we watched a Strange Wilderness. Bear with us as we navigate this new world we live in. If the movie doesn't bring you in, the guest will, Joe is not only the best looking guest we've had on, he's also the most musically inclined. So listen to our most meandering musical munchie filled show yet!
Like John Travolta, we're on the fence about Battlefield Earth. Is it beautiful, is it good? We decided somewhere in the middle saying this is worst movie we watched in 2017. It took us a while to get around to editing due do the holiday season, but here it is. Wait no longer. Battlefield Earth. If you have not seen this film, you still have your innocence. As for the rest of you, enjoy!
Hanukkah for Christmas! You got it! We get deep into what has to be one of the top five Hanukkah movies of all time. It's an Adam Sandler animated musical... sooooo you'll love it?
Is not having an episode of Reel Rotten about The Room tearing you apparrtttt! Well, good news, we did The Room for our latest episode, bad news is, it's going to tear you apart. In the gentlest way possible. Nick and Stephen sat down with The Room aficionado Ryan Grennan to bring you what we think is our best episode yet. Listen and enjoy, I guarantee you'll be as turned on (not sexually) as we were! Download and listen!
Top Gun, Color of Money, Rain Man, Born on the 4th of July, and Cocktail.... Which of these doesn't quite fit in? We don't care for your sarcastic answers, because Cocktail is the movie we watched and discussed! Stephen (new co-host) and Nick talk cocks and tails and Nick interviews a real life Tom Cruise, not even kidding. Download and listen!
Eragon, Eragon, where have thou Eragon? We watched the Lord of the Rings rip off that never spawned a sequel, because we were still juiced off of Game of Thrones. It may have taken away our raging Throners but we still had a good time watching Jeremy Irons pretend he wasn't dead behind his eyes doing this dialog. Esy's last pod before he moved to New York!
Here we go again... Fraser, mummies, yetis, China? Yaks? We watched The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and it was the most ridiculous movie we've seen yet. The sound is a little bit off because we recorded outside the studio so bear with us and get down with mummies. What the fuck was this movie even about...Read More
One movie was bold enough to put two of films greatest monsters against each other... Not Godzilla vs. King Kong. Not Charizard vs. MewTwo. No. This is Alien vs. Predator. A 21% rotten film that was just about everything it promised it was in the title. We get right into it, just like a face hugger into your ear hole, so give us a listen.Read More
The inaugural episode of Reel Rotten Podcast, where we discuss just how much Suicide Squad makes you want to commit suicide (squad). We talk about everything from the underdeveloped characters to the underdeveloped plot, to the first Mom Review from Nick's mom.Read More
