“Furious 7” opens today. Here’s another instant review. Listen, either you are going to see this film or not. No one is waiting to see how many stars AO Scott gives this movie. But Sean Conroy and I saw a special screening and we’re giving you the scoop? Why? Because you’re a “Proudly Resents” listener? No! You’re family!
3 Must-See Films, Nic Cage rage and Killer Rats.What are Todd’s three must see movies before you die? How do you react when your former boss says “Vampire’s Kiss” is the best film ever? Ouch, that was awkward. His other choices sound good though.
We then talk about the Oscars. Todd thinks Lego Movie got snubbed, I wail about David Oyelowo’s while I butcher his name.
It’s some fun conversation with Todd that didn’t quite fit the last episode. Check out my interview with Todd from the last episode.
New Year’s Eve ft. Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Ashton Kutcher and other huge stars, that owed the late great director Garry Marshal a favor, make extended cameos in this big screen “Love Boat.” Mike Spiegelman (my big bro) and I take down “New Year’s Eve,” the semi-sequel to “Valentine’s Day” (or pre-quel if you go by the calendar).
My big bro Mike Spiegelman insist we watch the biggest mistake in Whoopi Goldberg’s career and she named herself “Whoopi Goldberg.” “Theodore Rex” is a kid’s film with bad dinosaur costumes and shoot outs.

It’s the future – and Whoopi is a cop with a dinosaur partner. What else do you need? Plot, jokes, production value? Naw.
From Wikipedia –
Though Whoopi Goldberg had made a verbal agreement to star in the film in October 1992 she attempted to back out. Abramson filed a $20 million lawsuit against Goldberg, which they settled very quickly. Goldberg agreed to star in the film for $7 million, ]$2 million more than the originally agreed-upon amount.
One of the attorneys on the case described this as being similar to the legal battle of Kim Basinger when she backed out of the film Boxing Helena.
“Collision Course” (1989) was an attempt to capitalize on the matinée idol, Jay Leno and teen heart-throb, Pat Morita. Jim Wise (writer “Mad TV,” “Tonight Show With Jay Leno”) recaps with me this cop movie disaster.
Jim also talks about the Denzel Washington copflop “Ricochet.”
Plot of Collision Course: A Japanese investigator (Morita) and a Detroit cop (Leno) team up to track down a stolen prototype turbocharger.
Sean Conroy (“The Long Shot Podcast,” writer “Mr. Pickles”) and I talk about the #1 movie of the weekend, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” It’s filled with spoilers and mispronunciation. Listen to me call “apes,” “monkeys.”
We talk about the incredible CGI, the interesting plot and the old school sexism.
Sean and I know each other from our stand up days in the go-go 90’s. Please vote on the over under on when Sean Conroy will buy my first child a gift. The over/under is two years.

Rob Schrab (Sarah Silverman Program, Heat Vision and Jack) joins us to proudly resent “Deadly Prey.” It’s an ultra violent low-budget Rambo rip off. Speaking of rip offs, the star cuts off a bad guy’s arm and beats him with it. It’s a wonderfully flawed film with lots of “WTF” moments.

This 80’s “Lethal Weapon” rip off is a generous giver of gaffs, goofs and gapes. Bad editing, no continuity, bad dialogue and a Samurai Cop who is neither a cop or a samurai is proudly resented in this episode. This is the movie with the famous fickle horny nurse scene and the great actor Robert Z’Dar.
Actor Russell Steinberg, Luke Stepleton (Machinima) and Eric Nyenhuis join host Adam Spiegelman.
Plus: What is Machinima? Luke explains the future of media to the other three old guys. AKA “How to Make it big on the Youtubes.”
Update: Listen to the interview with the star of the movie: Matt Hannon.
