Plus, Drew devotes a large portion of the episode to building things, making patterns and drawing pictures with Halloween candy.
Matt and Drew wish that 1983’s HUNDRA was more of the Conan knock-off it appeared to be at first glance! Rape, more rape, even more rape and a blue horse. And rape. Plus, Drew plots out a modern Hundra remake.
Matt and Drew return to the land of Fantasia with 1990’s THE NEVERENDING STORY II: THE NEXT CHAPTER! The Spam Chronicles, new actors in old roles, Wambo: Fiwst Bwood Pawt 2 and huntin’ the purple buffalo. Plus, Drew’s fear of facelessness rears its head once again.
For International Podcast Day, Matt and Drew watch a movie whose goofiness is of mythic proportions, 1983’s HERCULES! Greek Jesus, X-Men villains, James Tiberius Kirkules and Circe The Sorceress sells seashells by the seashore. Plus, Drew feels the need to point out Matt’s spurring and sloonerisms more than once.
Matt and Drew puff the magic dragon with 2011’s YOUR HIGHNESS! Tommy Wiseau explanations, describing comedy is hard, McGuffin explanations and a heady discussion on the state of modern fantasy. Plus, Drew comes up with a pretty great tooth-related pun.
Matt and Drew…what? More dragons?! Yes, with 2004’s DARK KINGDOM: THE DRAGON KING! Sexy Saxons, Germanity to the max, heretofore unexplained and/or unrevealed martial arts prowess and Krispy Kriem. Plus, Drew knows the difference between an iguana and a komodo dragon better than Matt does.
Matt and Drew are full o’ beans and so’s their old mans, with 2013’s JACK THE GIANT SLAYER! Giant script rewrites, giant cliches, giant gentleman badasses and giant dei ex machina. Plus, Drew loves The Illusionist…and REO Speedwagon.
Matt and Drew watch a book adaptation that’s actually pretty okay, 1985’s THE BLACK CAULDRON! Disney gets dark, forced pig prophecies, witches don’t give it away for free and the difference between adaptations that respect the spirit of the book and adaptations that reject the spirit of the book…oh, wait…THAT’S the difference. Plus, Drew draws one too many comparisons to Lord Of The Rings for Matt’s taste.
Quick programming note…this episode was recorded before the Kubo And The Two Strings episode.
