Writer, director and podcaster, Paul Sullivan comes to give us the three (plus bonuses) worst baseball movies ever. Paul is the host of the daily baseball podcast, “Sully Baseball.” That show is going to hit episode #1,000 real soon.
So I invited him on to talk about the nation’s two favorite past times, baseball and listening to Sully’s podcast. I mean movies. As Paul points out, the list of the best BB movies are usually the same. SO he picks films that didn’t quite knock it out of the park (get it?)
I’ve seen most of the films Paul’s talking about. Which doesn’t make a lot of sense, since I HATE watching baseball games. I like going live. That’s an event. But watching on TV or as my dad did, listen on the radio, never made sense to me. Like I tell Paul, when people start talking sports, they might as well be speaking Chinese. Not at all fun.
This is a great list of bad baseball movies. Plus we go off and talk about other things. Vin Diesel going “full Steve Segal,” good and bad Albert Brooks, Marc Maron’s search for your “guys,” how we met, Paul’s Holocaust denial and Paul’s Holocaust denial, denial.
Bonnie & Maude Podcast talk about the movie Carrie. Director Paul Sullivan gives his favorite baseball movies, Justin Stolle reviews the “Birdemic” memoir and Geoffrey Welchman takes the piss out of bad movie podcasts.
Steven Seagal is “The Glimmer Man.” Keenen Ivory Wayans is the poor guy stuck as his partner. Emmy winner Chris Regan (“Shatner Rules”) and Local Emmy loser Paul Sullivan (Sullybaseball.com) were forced to watch this movie. They are back with a full report. I walked out of this movie when it came out. And I saw it on a plane. Hello. But listener and former guest Bucky Sinister suggested the film. I’m a man of my word… but shit man… what did I ever do to you? Seriously. Jeez.
But buddy cop films are not as easy as they seem. Stalone makes throwing out cool lines look effortless and Eddie Murphy can make any temper tantrum look funny. But it doesn’t mean any Tom, Dick and Henry Jaglom can just jump in squad car.
There’s the good, the bad the ugly. “The Glimmer Man” is the bad.
Here are the past reviews of the good and the ugly. You figure out which is which.
(I know I promise Chris Gore and Logan’s Run. But Chris told me he couldn’t promote it until January, so I’m going to hold it for a couple of weeks. I have some great shows in the can, including guests like Wayne Federman, Sharon Houston, Nicko, and the guys from “Story Worthy.” I’m going to record “Hard Ticket to Hawaii” with Nicko this week and try to turn it around for next week.)
Please write in your suggestions.
This week we review the religious, dead-guy-turns-to-dog movie starring Gary Busey. Busey is in full Busey form. Here’s his creepy interview he did for the movie. It makes little sense, but it has cheesy music behind it.
Wednesday the podcast episode will drop with out review/recap of this classic dead-guy-turns-to-dog movie starring Gary Busey movie called “Quiggly.”
Nicko is back w/ “Night Train to Terror!” Bull from “Night Court” stars in this clunky classic. Listen when Nicko once again tries to tell me that guy from “Shark Attack 3” is famous. Find out why she is doing the show under a net.
See the movie live In Los Angeles with an audience! Heckle all you want!
