Total Recall 1990

Covid-19 lockdown continues as we travel to the stars for the first in our Space Jam double feature having nothing to do with either Michael Jordan or Looney Tunes. Whatever, you probably don’t know what the name Space Jam has to do with cartoon basketball anyway so just calm the fuck down already—this is our Space Jam double feature, beginning with our review of Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi classic Total Recall, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as just an ordinary construction worker married to Sharon Stone and who may or may not also be an undercover spy.

Showgirls 1995

It’s time for the second in our stripper double feature, Paul Verhoeven’s Showgirls! And don’t you dare call Nomi a stripper—she’s a dancer goddamnit. One of us is convinced that this movie is better than its reputation as one of the worst films ever made, and one of us thinks its reputation suits it just fine. Is this movie a clever critique of the American dream, or is it just a stupid film starring that woman from Saved By the Bell? I think you know the answer.

Contagion 2011

Time for the second in our pandemic double feature, it’s Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, a movie featuring just the right amount of Gwyneth Paltrow and perhaps not enough Kate Winslet. Is this pandemic movie better than Outbreak? Listen to find out because the answer is most definitely ‘yes’—Outbreak sucked apart from a few rednecks getting lit up by an army helicopter.

BONUS Tiger King Reunion

The cast of Tiger King reunited and it feels so damn good that we had to discuss it on a BannedCast bonus episode. Join us as we take one (hopefully) last look at the Netflix Tiger King phenomenon because it feels like Joe Exotic’s fifteen minutes of fame has already long outstayed its welcome.

Tiger King 2020

More contentious than pro choice versus pro life, Republican versus Democrat, and Billie Eilish versus musical talent is Joe Exotic versus Carol Baskin, and at least one of us is on team Baskin. That’s right, we’re interrupting our pandemic double feature to talk Rebecca Chaiklin and Eric Goode’s docuseries Tiger King in a podcast that’s probably two weeks too late but whatever—you’re in Coronavirus lockdown and have an insatiable Joe Exotic appetite that might as well be further satiated with our insightful take on this latest Netflix cultural phenomenon. And by “insightful” we do mean prosaic and uninspired. 

NOTE: DB erroneously attributes the San Diego zoo and San Diego Safari Park to San Francisco, a mistake that can only be the result of his increased intake of Tito’s vodka and marijuana edibles during this current coronavirus lockdown. This is a podcast, after all, so mistakes are part of the landscape.

Hustlers 2019

Is Jennifer Lopez really 50 years old?! If she is, Jenny from the block doesn’t look a day over 49-and-a-half. But enough about JLo—there’s also a movie in here written and directed by Lorene Scafaria. How much of a move? Listen to this podcast review of Hustlers, the first in our stripper movie double feature, find out!

Road House 1989

Coming at you like a roundhouse kick to the groin, it’s our review of Rowdy Herrington’s 1989 cult classic Road House! The second in our barroom double feature, this one stars Patrick Swayze as a bouncer/cooler who’s able to win the affections of a doctor played by Kelly Lynch. This movie features lots of body oil, lots of fist fights, and lots of shots of men’s asses, so it’s a 10 out of 10 in Erin’s book.

Cocktail 1988

Many have heard of it, few have seen it, and fewer still have anything good to say about it. Today we kick off our barroom double feature with Roger Donaldson’s 1988 film Cocktail. How bad is it? Well, if you thought you hated Tom Cruise after that whole couch-jumping thing, wait until you see him reciting poetry while standing on a bar in New York. Yep, it’s that kind of a movie.

Dogtown and Z-Boys 2001

DB and Jared discuss the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys while Erin is away in Ireland chasing leprechauns and shamrocks. That’s at least our understanding of what she’s doing over there, although our understanding of Irish culture is admittedly derived mostly from Lucky Charms commercials. Anyway, you’ll hear our take on this companion piece to Lords of Dogtown and hear some interesting LA history as well as some gripes about Lords of Dogtown’s surprising dearth of Asian characters.
