The Williams Sisters: Two Middle Fingers to Men’s Tennis

How can I begin to describe for you my love for all things Venus and Serena Williams? It’s not a creepy thing … Okay, it’s slightly creepy, but I cannot help that I’m attracted to beautiful, athletic women. And so when I hear others insulting the Williams sisters or denigrating their talent by claiming that they do not deserve as much prize money as men for their tournament wins, I get a little upset.

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. Seriously though, she’s gorgeous and BannedCast is just bitter and jealous. 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 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! Starring 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.

I Intend to Bathe in Spaghetti-O’s When I Get Home This Evening

It’s a new year, and that means another opportunity for us all to assess our lives and confront some difficult and unfortunate shortcomings. We all have them, and in past years, I’ve resolved to stop peeing in my neighbor’s garden at night, start wearing socks to work, and stop singing Billy Joel hits in a high falsetto while waiting in line at Safeway.

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.

Thrashin’ 1986

Thrashin’ is a skateboard movie from 1986 starring Josh Brolin as an unlikeable kid from the San Fernando valley who spends his summer in LA facing off against Tommy Hook and his “gang” the Daggers. Directed by David Winters, this movie also features pre-Twin Peaks Sherilyn Fenn as well as one other pre-Twin Peaks character! There’s also a live performance by a young Red Hot Chili Peppers, skateboard stunts by the likes of Tony Alva and Tony Hawk, and one great chase scene set to the music of the Circle Jerks. Unofortunately, all of these cool elements are offset by that painfully stupid skateboard jousting fight. Whatever, it’s free to watch on YouTube.
