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.

25 – Cobra 1986

It’s the double feature no one was asking for: Stallone Cops! We begin with George Cosmatos’s Cobra, in which Stallone plays a policeman who doesn’t like junk food, Coors Light, or Mexicans in cars listening to Gloria Estafan. This movie is the disease, and BannedCast is the cure!

The Fifth Element 1997

And you thought those Star Wars prequels were bad. It’s time for the second in our Space Jam double feature having nothing to do with either Michael Jordan or Looney Tunes although there is plenty of slapstick comedy in this “sci-fi” adventure from director Luc Besson, The Fifth Element. Join us as we untangle all of the unfunny elements (way more than five) in this misadventure that, while it’s visually alluring, has very little in the way of a satisfying experience. Spoiler alert: The Fifth Element is love, although two of us have very little of it for this film.

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.
