EP078 – Legend – Director’s Cut (1985)

Legend Movie poster

Continuing his weird obsession with 1980s fantasy movies, Dave subjected the cast to Legend (1985), starring Tom Cruise, Mia Sara, and Tim Curry as Darkness.

The cast discuss style over substance, whether the movies we were permitted to watch as children messed us up as adults, and the risks of watching director’s cuts for a podcast about bad movies. We also spend a disproportionate amount of time discussing Tim Curry’s terrifying yet intensely, uncomfortably sexy performance.

  • Darkness by Surly Brewing Co.
    • IBUs: “moderate,” whatever the hell that means.
    • ABV: 12% (yikes)
  • Tangerine Cream Ale by Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co

    • ABV: 5.5%

EP076 – Attack of the Mushroom People (1963)

For our “Podcast Birthday Month”, we watch Attack of the Mushroom People, featuring the least attacking mushroom people you’ve ever seen. Honestly, this movie should have been called “Stranded on an Island with the Mushroom Pacifists”. Or, as Kathleen suggested, “The Island of Mushrooms and Nothing Actually Happens”.

Listen as Dave and Pete try to convince Kathleen and Troy that this is actually a good movie!

Listen to Dave try to make fungus puns in the background, which are totally ignored!

Featured Beer:
– Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery – The Mutants are Revolting
– Shorts Brewing – Pure Michigan Spring IPL

Pete – 2

EP073 – They’re Watching

This month, GBBMN swapped movies with Steven and Leo over at Spoils of Horror podcast. Kathleen was terrified that I had selected something for SoH to watch and the return movie was revenge for giving them such a stinker. Not so. It was an even exchange with neither of us having seen the selection.

Pete starts the night out with a Six Minute Synopsis by getting almost everyone’s name incorrect. He still gets it done in the time allotted but is that really a victory?

Kathleen and Troy teamed up and came up with an amazing way to fix the film. Let us know what you think.

Snorting tequila is not a recommended way to get your drink on.

Charlie over at Give Me Back My Action / Horror movies has had a profound effect on Troy.

The Cast learned what the word “misophobia” means. Sorry. It’s gross.

We use the “scientific” formula that the Found Footage Fool exercises on the films he watches. Go give him a listen.

Featured beer:
– Little Fish Brewery’s Lay & Love
– Ellicottville Brewery Mow Master

EP046 – Turbo Kid (2015)

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?
