What were the worst movies of the 2010’s? Oh, we’re going to tell you. Comedian Mike Spiegelman (my bro) is burning to read his list – so I let the guy burn! What do you think is the worst movie of the last ten years? There are lots to choose from. CLick here to
Hear Mike and I review Adam Sandler’s The Cobler
Hear Jimmy Pardo, Todd Levin, Sharon Houston and I review of Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas
“Loqueesha” is about a white man who pretends to be a black woman to land a radio advice show job. Lots of people attacked “Loqueesha” when its trailer came out. Some defended it. And Amazon Prime decided to put it on its streaming platform next to “Fleabag” and “Patriot.” It’s a mystery that even Bosch couldn’t solve (slowly).
I asked Damona Hoffman, a real African American woman who dispenses wisdom on her popular podcast, “Dates & Mates” to help dismantle this movie.
Billy Crystal, co-wrote, directed, starred and conducted his own Oscar campaign for this movie “Mr. Saturday Night.” It’s about a comedian who steals everyone’s Jackie’s jokes and ends up wearing really bad make up that’s supposed to make you look old.
Adam Felber (Wait… Wait… Don’t Tell Me and an alleged podcast with Paula Poundstone) and I dig deep into our love for Billy Crystal and why this film didn’t work for us.
Given his success in the early days of television, you’d
think that Buddy Young Jr. (Billy Crystal) would be coasting happily into retirement alongside his wife, Elaine (Julie Warner). Instead, Buddy is an acerbic blowhard who alienates his brother, Stan (David Paymer), and everyone else who fails to bow to his bullying. His agent, Annie Wells (Helen Hunt), has positioned elderly Buddy for a big movie role, but his irreverence might come back to bite him one last time.
Jump to Awards · Paymer was nominated in 1992 for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance. At the Golden Globe Awards, Paymer was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture and Crystal was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
Crystal reveals that he is currently at work writing a stage musical adaptation of his 1992 film MR. SATURDAY NIGHT. “We’re making it a musical for the Nederlanders, who loved the movie. [They] came to us and said this could be a musical…We’ve written the first draft [and] had a reading the other day.” He continues, “It totally has the spirit of the film and it could be really exciting.”
Usually, we review an entire movie. But recently I got to be a guest on “Rocky Minute” The daily podcast in which hosts Doug Greenberg and Jason Hanes knockout the Rocky films one minute at a time. Apparently, Dueling Genre is a whole network of shows that are just people analyzing a movie 60 seconds at a clip.
Thanks to past guest and FOH (friend of the host), Paul Sullivan, I got to be on three days in a row. I had a good time. All three episodes are a fun listen. Here are one or two episodes that I was on. Not sure how many I’ll post. But please check them out and take a listen.
Before “LA LA Land” didn’t win the Oscar, there was another musical about making it in Hollywood that didn’t deserve any awards. “Hollywood Musical!” came out two, maybe ten years before “LA LA” landed in theaters. Today is a rare solo show. Ok, the only one. It’s my one time doing it alone. So listen on 1.5 speed. Or even 2X. It will sound fine.
This is also a rare show where I shit on a movie. It’s a dull, out of focus movie with a couple of sharp performances from Dee Ann Newkirk and Angela Pupello.
This was recorded way before “La La Land” came out. But I put it on hold b/c I thought it was too mean and didn’t like that it was just me. So I’m putting it out now with little or no fanfare and just a core people listening to the show. I have another episode I was afraid to post. I might do that next. Plus, remastering old episodes that are no longer on itunes and/or need help with audio (AKA – sounded like shit)
Thanks to everyone who stayed with the show and thanks for your support.
Here are real Amazon reviews of “Hollywood Musical!”
“The Fate of the Furious!” Sean Conroy and I review the 8th “Fast and Furious” movie! If you love hearing people talk about family and have BBQ’s, this is the movie series for you! Sean and I went to the Thursday night screening.
Adam Felber and Andres Du Bouchet perform their classic “tough” movie reviewers from the “website” “Ain’t Everything Cool dot Yes!” They’ve done these characters a few times over the years on the podcast. Always funny.
Here are a couple of past reviews from “Ain’t Everything Cool Dot Yes”:
