Predator 1987

The second in our alien double feature, it’s our review of John McTiernan’s Predator! Why are we reviewing this cult classic? Because some damn fool said this testosterone-fueled d**k-measuring contest was the best. Are they right? Listen to find out!

The Thing 1982

It’s the first in our alien double feature that totally omits that iconic 1979 Ridley Scott film! Today we instead review the equally iconic 1982 John Carpenter film The Thing. We get to the bottom of Kurt Russell’s beard, Wilford Brimley’s diabetes, and Donald Moffat’s eyebrows, with some mention about plot, cinematography, and all that other stuff. But those eyebrows are seriously distracting, you know.

Demolition Man 1993

It’s time for the second in our Stallone Cops double feature, Marco Brambilla’s Demolition Man! The year is 2032, and while cursing in public is no longer allowed, dating your own daughter is apparently totally okay. Get ready for more talk about Stallone’s nude pics, Wesley Snipes’ hair, and Sandra Bullock’s familial ancestry.

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.

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.
