Episode 56 – Goodfellas vs. Boogie Nights


This week, we lined up two great Hollywood films for your listening pleasure, 1990’s, “Goodfellas” and 1997’s, “Boogie Nights.”  Tonight, we are joined again by Steve from both the Not Just Another Geek and Not Just Another Disney podcasts. Both films explore the concepts of family, loyalty, and hubris. But is they share an ethos as well? 

Sean and Henno sent Roy home to get his fu**ing shine box this week, and what an episode he missed!

Episode 49 – Point Break vs. Speed


After multiple attempts by Roy to shoehorn 1991’s ‘Point Break’ vs. Ben Affleck’s, ‘The Town,’ into one of our shows, HBO gives him the ultimate assist by playing ‘Point Break’ and 1994’s ‘Speed’ back-to-back one Saturday night. 

Since our ‘Starship Troopers’ vs. ‘Robocop’ episode, we don’t dare spell action anymore without M-I-K-E-S-C-O-T-T.  Mike is the host of the most complete Scott Adkins podcast (absolutely anywhere), ‘Adkins Undisputed,’ and hosts the 20th Century Movie Club on the ‘Dana Buckler Show.’  He is a wealth of action (and many other genres) knowledge, and we love having him on to discuss films with us.

When we first introduced our Vs. series, the purpose was having to make a tough choice between two beloved movies.  Between Keanu vs. Keanu, Hopper vs. Swayze, and Bullock vs. Petty, there are so many categories to help pick your winner.  We can’t wait to read what you think.  Thanks for listening!

Episode 39 – Spaceballs vs. Galaxy Quest


This episode is a lot of fun.  Henno improved an idea Roy wanted to borrow from a friend on Facebook, which was: Change My Mind: Galaxy Quest is better than every Star Wars movie. 

We have no guest this week, but we discuss:

  • Who prefers Spaceballs over Galaxy Quest?
  • Tim Allen hate, but is it deserved?
  • Alan Rickman love because it is deserved
  • Is it ok to like Spaceballs because pre-teen us loves Spaceballs?
  • Is it ok to dismiss Spaceballs because it is not top-tier Mel Brooks humor?
  • Was Rick Moranis the only good thing about Spaceballs?
  • And much, much more!

In this season of Thanksgiving, we thank you so much for supporting our podcast.  If you feel moved to, please rate and review us. 

Our next episode is the controversial French film, Cuties.  Find out if the film is worthy of the negative attention Netflix received and still receives for putting it in their library.

Episode 36 – Bill and Ted Face the Music


It’s been 29 years since the most excellent duo delivered us a movie.  Was it worth the wait, and how does the dearth of new movies recently skew what we think? 

We have no guest this episode.  Sean, Henno, and Roy discuss (not in order):

  • Changing out the medieval babes
  • Bill and Ted’s kids (including IMDb setting Roy up for failure by switching the actors’ names – by the way, it’s STILL wrong!)
  • Gush for Anthony Carrigan and William Sadler
  • Appreciation for keeping most of the cast together
  • The not very strong start
  • What didn’t feel quite right (watching a Bill and Ted movie)
  • How satisfying was the conclusion of the trilogy overall?   

Thank you for listening!

Episode 26 – Con Air vs. The Rock


We are delighted to have Sara Netzley, (@SaraNetzley on Twitter) journalism professor by day and TV reviewer by night to discuss Nic Cage in back-to-back roles in 1996 and 1997.  Historically, our versus series asks which movie we love more knowing we really like them both.  Tonight, the rules have changed.  There are haters on both sides.  Dr. Netzley’s topic brought the heat.

On our latest episode, we travel back to 1980 to discuss the first film adapted from a Saturday Night Live skit, the Blues Brothers.  Fueled by hi-jinx, car chases, copious amounts of cocaine, and superstars from both music and film; we ask if this film passes the test of time.  We are joined by serial podcast guest, Carmelita (@CarmelitaSays)
