EP051 – Independent Film Lovin’

Independent Film Month

It’s that time of year again…the one month of the year when the cast stops insulting the subpar works of Hollywood and instead they say nice things about the passion projects of up and coming filmmakers! Independent Movie Month!

This time, Pete brings us two proper horror films.

We start with Colm Donston’s Happy Campers. A classic riff on camp councilors that get picked off one by one by a psychotic killer. Watch it free on YouTube!

Next, the crew reviews Joe DeMuro’s Tales of Dracula. Get your own copy of Tales of Dracula from Amazon. Only $6.98! Support local art!

That’s a pretty kick-ass Drac!

And don’t forget to check out the classic “silicone can-covers that look like soda so you can cover your beer cans“, but it’s not to trick law enforcement! It’s just a gag! Promise!

The Beers

Founders – Mas Agave Clasica Lime

Urban Artifact – Keypunch Key Lime Gose

Founders – Porter

EP050 – Attack of the 50 Foot Woman

Oh boy do we have some problems. Our first in-person recording since the world ended and it’s like we forgot how to set up the equipment. The audio, much like Pete’s jokes, is dodgy at best. Please forgive us but you get what you pay for.

EP049 – Champions of Justice (1971)

Champions of Justice
  • In which Kathleen desperately tries to find us another May holiday to celebrate
  • Pete attempts to guess at the meaning of Japanese words
  • Dave’s cat lodges several complaints
  • Luchadors’ Goddaughters are turned into ‘babesicles’
  • We find ourselves with a wide range of opinions on the movie:
    • Troy – 1 beer
    • Pete – 1 beer
    • Dave – 3 beers
    • Kathleen – 4 beers

Featured Beers

Great Lakes Mexican Lager with Lime

Against the Grain Retitled Pils

Did we lie? … Ain’t she gorgeous!?!

EP048 – Grizzly (1976)

Grizzly is a bonkers Jaws rip-off that wasn’t as horrible as you might think it would be. My guess is that Pete’s entertaining 6-minute synopsis may have softened the casts view.

The cast throws up a little in their collective mouths after reminiscing about our poor choices of college beers. “Anything Ice. blech” – Troy

Dave introduces the world to the game, “Fizz-Ball” and Pete introduces the world to the game, “Six Degrees to Godzilla.”

Kathleen is starting a Kickstarter to bring back the old-timey phrase, “Up Yours!”

Question of the show: Is Dave a cannibal? If not than how does he know what people taste like?

The second beer we sampled gave the entire cast a case of unexpected sound effects.

Featured Beers:
– In lieu of having Schlitz we tried Stroh’s.
– Sour Monkey from Victory Brewing (ooh!)

6-Pack Rating:
Dave – 1
Troy – 3
Kathleen – 3
Pete – 2

EP047 – Johnny Mnemonic (1995)

Johnny Mnemonic movie poster

Join the Good Beer Bad Movie Night podcast as we slog through Johnny Mnemonic, Dave’s horrible birthday pick! On a somewhat related note, Dave may no longer be allowed to choose movies.

Highlights from Episode 47

  • This movie may be the final evidence that Dave in fact hates the rest of the cast.
  • Johnny Mnemonic may be the best Keanu Reeves performance since Bram Stoker’s Dracula. (WE LOVE YOU, KEANU!)
  • Accurate predictions of 2021 from a movie released in 1995:
    • People wearing masks because of a pandemic
    • Over proliferation of technology affecting people psychologically, yet we can’t do without it.
    • Corporations run everything
    • Keanu Reeves, Henry Rollins and Ice T are still awesome
  • Not so accurate predictions:
    • Using virtual reality goggles and haptic gloves to navigate the internet like Tron (though Dave’s still holding out hope)
    • We’ll still be using pay phones, VCRs, and calling cards
    • Cybernetically enhanced preachers moonlighting as contract killers
  • Keanu has a sophisticated neural implant that holds up to 320GB of data. Today a USB flash drive of comparable size would cost about $15 to $30.

Join the gang for a film filled with blood fountains and gratuitous 80s references.

  • Thanks to Superfan Tim Lee for suggesting this one.
  • You know them and you love them but we finally introduce two NEW members of the GBBMN team, Mitch and Murry! They certainly had a lot to say about this movie.
  • Our friend Tim Minneci of the Dig Me Out Podcast helped us out with a musical game. If you love hair bands make sure to go check out his podcast. It ROCKS!
  • Kathleen was thrilled to have Collective Arts Brewing’s Raspberry Sour to help numb her eyeballs while talking about the film.
  • Pete found a beer that takes the name of one of GBBMN’s original bumps. Mills Brewing Orange Whip.
  • Troy issues a challenge to the listeners in what will surely end up biting us all in the ass.
  • Next month: Dave picks Johnny Mnemonic for his birthday? Why do you hate us so, Dave?

EP045 – Beerfest (2006)

Join the GBBMN team for dumb ass jokes and binge drinking at BEERFEST!

  • Send us suggestions for American Drinking Songs. The cast is still somewhat ashamed that they could not come up with better examples than “Sweet Caroline” and “Piano Man”. I mean seriously…
  • Troy treats us to the most annoying 6-minute penalty of all time
  • Pete schools the crew on skunky German bier lore
  • Dave ruminates on his life choices as we discuss drinking games.
  • Kathleen continues to be annoyed that we’re foisting this upon her each month

EP044 – Santa with Muscles (1996)

  • Another year another holiday movie. This year makes me long for Grumpy Cat’s return.
  • Seriously, there’s an Ice Cream truck in this movie and the writers weren’t able to get Clint Howard to drive it just ONCE? Missed opportunity.
  • I’ve done the listeners a favor and added a direct link to Troy’s new favorite past-time; Zardoz Cosplay Images.
  • From one of our favorite out of state breweries we try Three Floyd’s Alpha Klaus.
  • And from a local favorite we try Land Grant’s Sweater Vibes.

EP043 – The Wizard (1989)

Highlights from episode 43.

  • How boring is this movie? Troy will let you know.
  • Dave shared his uncanny knowledge of the Backstreet Boys and other 80s boy bands.
  • Troy wishes the GBBMN listener movie poll would go away. Send up feedback whether or not it should stop or continue.
  • Reminiscing about Pat Dailey always triggers Kathleen to start singing.
  • Our first beer we try is Narragansett Beer which is the beer featured in Jaws. #crushitlikequint
  • Second beer of the night paid tribute to the latest Bill and Ted film, Bill and Ted’s Most Excellent Stellar. Thanks to our friends at Perfect Pour for finding this rare beverage.

  • To the surprise of a few cast members, both Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan are in this film.
