The year was 1997 and a young white man cracked the code. Kevin Smith decided to tell the rest of us what gay women were all about. The nerve of this guy, right? Well, critics and audiences ate it up, and CHASING AMY holds a sweet 88% on the Tomatometer. Listen to the horrified Alex and Julio as they discuss how Smith got away with mansplaining lesbians, how an actual love story between Ben Affleck and Jason Lee would've been more interesting, and how the world "problematic" apparently didn't exist back in the 90s.Read More
"This means war" cried Tom Hardy after his agent told him he didn't think The Future Bane was well-suited for a lead role in a romantic comedy. "This means war" declared McG when studios all over told him it was nonsense to break his streak of amazing action movies by directing a Reese Witherspoon vehicle. "This means war" decided critics everywhere when they saw McG and Hardy had ignored everyone's advice and had gone ahead and shot a fantastic action-rom-com... so they conspired to give it a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Join Alex and Julio as they fawn over Hardy's one and only foray into comedy and romance, McG's most complex and complete movie yet, and the fantastically good looks of Chris Pine and Ms. Whiterspoon.

Thanksgiving is all about family. You know what else is all about family? Rob Zombie's movies. Join Alex, Julio and special guest Cory "The Movie Monk" Ahre as they explore Zombie's filmography and how it highlights the blood ties that bind us with those that hurt us the most. Clearly something critics completely missed, hence the movies' atrocious Rotten Tomatoes scores.
(Yes, there is an annoying hum behind Alex's voice - fear not! it goes away 20 minutes in. Blame the Turkey Goblins)Read More
