Movie Issues: The Avengers

Well this is the day Leland and Spooky have been waiting for The Avengers opens today. So in honor of that, we watched the 1998 classic The Avengers.

This is a truly terrible, terrible film that should never be seen again. Based on the 1960s TV show: this brought an old James Bond, Voldemort and Poison Ivy together on screen, and Spooky’s never been the same. So drop on in and listen as we try to understand what was just going on in this movie.

Movie Issues: American Outlaws

This week Spooky and Leland take a trip back to the wild west to rob some banks and to be wanted dead or alive by the law. We take a look at 2001s American Outlaws. A young Colin Farrell, that guy from the Oceans movies, the Spirit and that chick from Heroes all get together and try to be the new Young Guns. Well that didn’t happen. Come watch with us and you’ll know why too.

Movie Issues: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

Well it was bound to happen again. Here it is, yet another Friday the 13th. So in typical Movie Issues fashion, we cover another Friday the 13th movie. This time we do 1989’s Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. Or: it should be called “Jason Takes a Cruise” because he doesn’t do much in the movie. This is a rough one, and Spooky gets a little sea-sick. Join us as we try to wade though this horrible plot and even worse effects.

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!

Movie Issues: Runaway

Ever thought to yourself, “Man, I wish there were a movie in which Magnum PI fights that guy from KISS and the Evil Robots?” Well you’re in luck!

Because that’s what we give you this week: the 1984 “masterpiece” Runaway. A little forgotten film in which Tom Selleck is a cop who runs a police division with the sole purpose to stop malfunctioning robots. Throw in a kid, a hot Kirstie Alley, acid laced robo-spiders, Gene’s tongue, and a stern female robot named Lois and you have a great night planned. Join us this week and as Spooky asks Leland,” What the hell man?”

Movie Issues: Jumpin’ Jack Flash

Hey there everybody! It’s that time again where Leland and Spooky travel back in time to the world of the 1980s: a place where neon ruled, computers were the size of small cars, and everybody knew how to walk like an Egyptian.

This week, we watched the Whoopi Goldberg comedy “classic” Jumpin’ Jack Flash, the story of one woman’s struggle to help a spy get out of eastern Europe by any means necessary.

You read that correctly. So join us as we walk down the 1980s lane and remember the hardcore Whoopi…you know, before she became a nun.

DO THE MARIO!

Oh yes friends, you’re reading it correctly. This week we fell down a couple of pipes and ended up watching 1993’s Super Mario Brothers. Tune in to see if we can discover if this is an endearing movie from our youth that should be cherished or just a huge Bob-Omb that should never be watched again. So join us! Grab a meatball sub and your best cheap red wine and get ready to DO THE MARIO!

Movie Issues: 21 Jump Street

Holy double shows! Yes, your eyes are correct: two shows in one day!

This past week Leland and Spooky attended a press screening of 21 Jump Street. Yes, we know what you’re thinking, and yes we really went to see it. You know what? It was damn funny. So funny and good, in fact, we decided to do a special podcast just about how awesome it was.

So listen and enjoy. Hope it sparks you to get out of your house and go see it!
