  1. After 10 years and 178 episodes, Animezing Podcast was down to only one remaining project to complete. Today, with Kellen Scrivens and James Trenchard's review of the tenth and final episode of the Hellsing Ultimate OVA, that project is completed. Join the two longtime friends as they finish up a tale of vampires killing Nazi's while reminiscing about the last 10 years of life, podcasts, and the evolution of animation in that time. Thank you, one and all. [ 1:12:10 || 34.7 MB ]
  2. Ian and Dave cover another two episodes of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Painkillers," Jeff and Jeanie are sent undercover by the government to investigate the enigmatic Colonel Anger who has discovered a pain delaying drug that Wyvern says could cause chaos for the spirit world. In "Marshall and Snellgrove," Jeff and Jeanie get a high paying case but discover that their client's brother has hired the rival detectives who work in their building. When one of their rivals is killed, Marty must help him avoid the spectral authorities until they can solve his murder. They also discuss subgenres of Buckaroo and discovery why Dave is podcasting from his bed. [ 2:02:48 || 89.9 MB ]

    Episode 583

    It's all of our favorite holiday season, so my Halloween gift to Duane is that we're reviewing an anthology film together. An anthology film based on holidays called Holidays. Get it? And that's not all! Rich the Monster Movie Kid finishes The Bloodthirsty Trilogy with a review of The Evil of Dracula. How about some holiday carols? "Halloween" by Mastodon, "Holiday" by Duff McKagan, "Nosferatu" by Electric Food, and "Halloween (Video Edit)" by Helloween. [ 1:14:56 || 36.2 MB ]
  5. The Doctor and Bill run into Victorian British soldiers on Mars ("Empress of Mars"), then they push interdimensional monsters back into a portal ("The Eaters of Light"). [ 47:50 || 23.2 MB ]
  6. A PPV from Manchester, England and the first ever weekly TV show to emanate live from the World's Most Famous Arena are the highlights of Week 38 of A Cure for the Common Podcast. The dos and don'ts of how to handle a popular wrestler's homecoming, the match Bret Hart has deemed his last great WWF contest, the continuation of the worst tournament in the history of professional wrestling, and something about Vince McMahon and Steve Austin you might have heard about are all covered this week. [ 4:45:23 || 137.1 MB ]
  7. 'Tis the season to be spooky, and Skyler Queen and Will Ackerman are ready to celebrate by looking at a classic 1990s slasher movie: Scream! Along the way they discuss queer-coding in horror movies, some killer fashion, and why some rules are made to be broken. [ 2:58:25 || 86.8 MB ]
  8. As of this writing, Halloween (2018) has netted over $100 million in its opening week. On a budget estimated to be no more than $15 million, the $85 million gross all but guarantees a sequel will be in the works before you finish reading this sentence. But what it also guarantees are more continuations of horror franchises from the 1970s and 80s. Not remakes, mind you. We've already had remakes of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which went nowhere as a fresh franchise. Friday the 13th, which was a rather solid Jason movie, also failed to spawn a new series of movies. And Halloween itself had the two Rob Zombie movies, but that remake series seems to be dead now. What we're talking about here are continuations of the original movies. While that might seem like a cynical takeaway, Hollywood is well-known for not being able to resist a trend. Or, starting one when they see the potential to make money hand over fist. Considering how little money it takes to make a horror movie, the financial investment is hardly a risk, so you can't really blame them.

    Episode 582

    This week on Dread Media, a psychiatrist specializing in PTSD has her limits tested in Desmond and Tom's review of Clinical. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews the second film in The Bloodthirsty Trilogy: Lake of Dracula. Of course there are tunes: "A Masters in Reverse Psychology" by Murder by Death, "Therapy" by The Damned, "Mark of the Vampire" by The Coffinshakers, and "Shrink" by Dead Kennedys.

    Episode 581

    This week on Dread Media, Darryll and Desmond help Chuck Norris roundhouse kick Satanism in our review of the very regrettable Hellbound. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid classes the place up with his review of the first film in The Bloodthirsty Trilogy: The Vampire Doll. Of course, there are tunes to help us ring in the best season of all: "Little Demon" by The Chuck Norris Experience, "Hellbound" by Pantera, "Haunted" by Evanescence, and "Northern October" by The Northern Ontario Black Metal Preservation Society. [ 59:23 || 28.7 MB ]

    Episode 580

    This week on Dread Media, close relations go to a secluded place and terrible stuff happens. It's exactly what you think it is, but with a twist! First, Desmond and Duane review the bizarre, emotionally driven cult film The Invitation. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid discusses a cabin getaway gone wrong in the brand new monster film Exposure. There are some songs too: "Dead With My Friends" by Iron Reagan, "All My Friends Are Dead" by Turbonegro, "Animal I Have Become" by Three Days Grace, and "Beastland" by Author & Punisher. [ 1:07:16 || 32.5 MB ]
  13. Shawn goes into business for himself, Bret verges on losing his professional edge, Taker is trapped in a steel cage of his own making, and Austin is doing Looney Tunes skits with King. And the Pillman storyline is messed up. What can save us this week? Any wrestler under 200 pounds. Have fun with this as we discuss whether we had fun with this! [ 2:23:34 || 69.0 MB ]
  14. Having garnered feedback as to which Hollywood actors the podcast community would be uncomfortable with The Brothers Wilson tackling, this episode sees our hosts cover the people's choice from the previous Tomlinson awards: the decidedly unproblematic Tom Cruise! Always mindful of the podcast's legal budget, this episode covers the respectable Michael Mann crime thriller Collateral; the film Ian forgets he's reviewing by the end in Top Gun; and the film for which Pandy reveals far too much about himself in the quest for the perfect review, which is Eyes Wide Shut. Also on the docket is a frankly shocking Harvey Keitel impression, thoughts on James Nesbitt's film career, inspirations for Wilson baby names, and the fundamental debate as to whether Stanley Kubrick is, in fact, rubbish. Finally, our hosts put up the 2019 future of the podcast to a vote. What say you, listeners? [ 2:57:29 || 85.1 MB ]
  15. Hannah and Jim are back to talk about Heavy Metal, as well as the manga they've recently read, including Ōoku: The Inner Chambers and My Brother's Husband. [ 51:22 || 26.4 MB ]

    Episode 579

    It's been 34 years in the making, but our old friend Greg Lamberson has finally been able to make his 1980s heavy metal horror film, Johnny Gruesome. It's out in two weeks and he's already completed filming on another film: Widow's Point, an adaptation of Richard and Billy Chizmar's novella of the same name. He's here to chat about the making of both films. Bookmarking our conversation is a trio of gruesome tunes: "A Gruesome Time" by Mercyful Fate, "Gruesome" by Dean and Giasone Italiano, and "Gruesome" by Gruesome. [ 1:08:24 || 33.1 MB ]
  17. The guys discuss the forthcoming Star Trek: Short Treks micro-series, the return of Jean-Luc Picard, the awesomeness of Harry Mudd, and the possible loss of Chris Pine as Captain Kirk. Then Kirk and the crew are shrunk in an effort to gain their attention ("The Terratin Incident"), they're trapped in a space Bermuda Triangle ("The Time Trap"), and turned into fish-people for reasons ("The Ambergris Element").

    Episode 578

    This week on Dread Media, we thought we'd counter all the good news about the Catholic church that's come out lately by discussing brighter things. Well, not really. Lying is a sin. I should be careful with that. First, Tom Deja and Desmond have some very strong words for William Friedkin in their review of his recent documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. Then, in a review of a more believable film, Rich the Monster Movie Kid runs down The Conjuring series and its most recent iteration, The Nun. We've got some rosaries and Hail Marys for you as well: "I Don't Wanna Be No Catholic Boy" by Dead Boys, "The Exorcist" by The Hellacopters, "Heresy" by Nine Inch Nails, and "Catholic Blood" by Scott Kelly. [ 1:05:10 || 31.5 MB ]
  19. Ian Wilson returns with the second instalment of The Flickchart Forum. Joined by guests Christian Honoré and Chris Johnson, the forum takes a look at the 10-film filmography of one of this generation's most interesting and successful directors: Christopher Nolan, who is British! Amongst the definitive Top 10 rundown based upon the trio's individual lists, and interesting descriptions of the Starship Enterprise, listen in to hear which host does Tom Wilkinson impressions, which host hates Leonardo DiCaprio, and which host actually likes Interstellar. It's Bane-on-a-plane entertainment! [ 2:04:07 || 61.7 MB ]
  20. Dave and Ian begin series two of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Whatever Possessed You," Jeff still has no memory of Marty being a ghost as he and Jeanie are called in to investigate a series of strange deaths in a hotel. Wyvern says that the time has come for Marty to reunite with Jeff, and together they face the spirits looking to escape the hotel. In "Revenge of the Bog People" an ex-partner of Jeff comes back into his life asking him to reopen the investigation into her missing father, and Marty is tasked with taming a wayward ghost called Nesbit. And in "O Happy Isle," Jeff and Jeanie investigate the death of a young man on a remote Scottish island and stumble across a conspiracy to control the planet's population. They also discuss the improvements in series two and welcome a guest appearance of one of Ian's favorite TABHAL actors. [ 2:24:41 || 70.0 MB ]

    Episode 577

    School is back in session, but we're going abroad here at Dread Media. First up, Desmond and Duane review the anthology film of brutality and depravity from a country known for its brutal and depraved cinema: German Angst. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives a review of the haunting, beautiful, and erotic Belgian vampire film, The Daughters of Darkness. We've got an assortment of international tunes, too: "The Mandrake's Cry" by Danzig from the USA, "Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen" by Rammstein from Germany, "Vampyre Erotica" by Inkubus Sukkubus from Britain, and "Foreign Armies East" by Sleep of Monsters from Finland. [ 1:15:06 || 36.3 MB ]
  22. The guys are back to look at three episodes. Before that, though, they play catch-up with Doctor Who news, including trailers, The Doctor's new sonic, and the Twitch live-stream. Then it's all about a three-part story in which The Doctor finds himself trapped in virtual reality ("Extremis"), preventing World War III ("The Pyramid at the End of the World"), then saving the planet from alien overlords ("The Lie of the Land").

    Episode 576

    This week on Dread Media, Desmond and Darryll get together for some drinks and some shuriken-throwing as they present a double feature of Sho Kosugi ninja films: Enter the Ninja and Revenge of the Ninja. There are wicked stunts, explosions, throwing stars embedded in foreheads, cocaine, bad acting, wet T-shirts, steely gazes, and men so virile they'll make you go through puberty twice! All that, plus songs: "Against the Ninja" by Dragon Sound, "Enter the Ninja" by Die Antwoord, "Revenge" by Black Flag, and "Shadow Warrior" by Blue Oyster Cult. [ 1:15:31 || 36.5 MB ]
  24. Summer is over, Ian has regained his editing duties, and Pandy is going back to work. What can possibly cheer up The Brothers Wilson and, by extension, the listeners of Hey, an Actor? Why, the delectable Salma Hayek, of course! Starting with her early crossover hit into American film with her female lead in Robert "RobRod" Rodriguez's sophomore trilogy entry Desperado. This episode also charts her Academy Award-nominated role as the titular star of Frida, and her latter career dramatic turn as the equally titular Beatriz at Dinner. Listen closely to find out in which film Hayek plays a Fembot, and which of our featured films works best as a Captain Planet prequel. Pandy also returns to his jingle-making excesses, the feedback section is almost entirely forgotten, and the hosts discuss the sexual eroticism of Alfred Molina. Happy autumn, everybody!

  25. To date we've examined how I would bring Star Trek back to television screens and cinemas. However, through CBS All Access, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, YouTube Premium, and other streaming services, the creative minds behind the Star Trek franchise have many more outlets to bring its fans new series, characters, and situations in which to explore the endless universe of Star Trek. Beyond the above-mentioned services, one must consider what type of content to place on these digital platforms. Though Discovery is doing well on CBS All Access, I'm not sure an ongoing, multi-season program is the right fit for these avenues. Rather, I would prefer to see new Star Trek shows in the mold of the original intent of Discovery: anthology series. [ read more ]
