This week there can only be one....podcast that is. That's right we're doing the 1986 bomb/cult classic HIGHLANDER! What would an Ancient Egyptian turned Spaniard accent sound like? Is the female lead a Forensics expert who dabbles in sword expertise or vice versa? Just what the f$%# is the "prize"? HOW CAN AN IMMORTAL PHYSICALLY AGE? Time to Get to the Podcast to find out the answers to these questions and more!
It's a very special episode of GTTP this week for Ryan as he views the classic(?) JCVD banger BLOODSPORT for the first time. Does Cali agree it's a classic or is he too focused on Van Damme's 1988 physique to have an opinion? Just which Giants team did Frank Dux really root for? Is it possible for ANY action movie in the 80's or 90's to have a well written female character (spoiler alert: No)? Do the duo give the great Forest Whitaker his due this week?!? Time to get to the Kumite to find out to these questions and more!!
Well slap us around and call us Susan, GTTP has finally tackled Blankman! One of the most criminally underrated comedies of the 90's is finally given it's due by two guys on the internet. Is this Damon Wayans best role in a movie? Is there a movie that can more consistently make a person laugh? Who inspired who, Jason Alexander or Al Pacino? Would Robin Givens really care for Blankman or would she just break his heart? Do what you have to, tie tin foil to your toilet, whatever it takes to Get to the Podcast this week!
Highly controversial episode this week. One half of the podcast is incensed at the travesty that is the Super Mario Brothers movie, and the other half is wrong. Tune in to find out where this ranks in terms of adaptations (hint: dead last), what the relationship between Mario and Luigi is and what movie these directors even were attempting to make? Your childhood is about to either get ruined or it's already been ruined. There is no other possibility.
A Vicious Punishment: Alien vs Predator is on the docket this week. What happens when you take two of the most beloved franchises of all time and hand them over to a horrid director and also let him write the movie? Well, the movie sucks that’s what. Faceless bland characters, neither franchise honored properly and a super sonic sled are the result of this travesty. Don’t worry though, our two humble heroes take this movie apart in all of the ways that were not only necessary but absolutely deserved so Get to the Podcast.
GTTP is celebrating St Patty's in style today with the forgettable(?) 90's sports film BLUE CHIPS! Is Nick Nolte the all time greatest movie sports coach ever?

Ugh, the worst. This weeks abridged ep lists the characters who make our hosts blood boil. Cowards, cruel torturers, and ruiners of all time great movie franchises this episode is littered with people we hate. So strap in, crack a can of haterade and Get to the Podcast.
Gttp is wild for 1998's Wild Things this week....or are they?! There is A LOT to unpack in this one. Whether it's making sense of some illogical character actions or the ahead of the curve use of incest sex scenes (looking at you Game of Thrones) Kevin and Ryan have their hands full. The twist is....that there at least nine of them.
The year is 1998, mankind has discovered a possible alien craft, the plan is to skim over a report written by a psychologist 20 years earlier and hastily assemble a crack squad of civilians to board the ship. Amongst them will be a mentally unstable biologist and her ex boyfriend because they simply had no time to conduct background searches on any of these critically important people. That’s right, we’re talking Sphere. Join us as we try to find out what makes Jerry happy, presumably it’s plot holes. We’re happy to Get to the Podcast this week, so don’t be scared and dive in!
Emergency podcast mode activate! It took us longer than expected to get this week's episode in the can but we got to the podcast regardless. This week The Bone Collector is our film and let us say, it's terrible. Denzel decided that while making a boxing movie he could make a second movie where he lays down in a bed the whole time to recover from his boxing scenes. The results are about what you'd expect. Angelina Jolie also stars as the classic trope of the ex-supermodel turned cop who also doesn't want to really solve crimes or be involved in anything that might be upsetting to her, of course. Also, a man fights a quadriplegic...and loses.
This week on GTTP we're diving right into the 2017 MASTERPIECE The Snowman! Poor poor Michael Fassbender... you know not what you've done.

Time to buckle up and Get to the Podcast!!
Woah. This week GTTP revisits one of the most influential sci fi/action movies of all time: The Matrix. Did the sequels ruin their enjoyment of the original?

All that and much more in this week’s edition of Get to the Podcast.
Get to the Podcast celebrates the great Robert De Niro this week with the overlooked gem that is 1996's The Fan. Baseball logic is seemingly tossed out the window in this tale of fame and obsession. Does the movie hold up twenty years later? Does Cali know good acting when he sees it? DOES THIS EPISODE CONTAIN THE GREATEST PIECE OF MOVIE TRIVIA OF ALL TIME?! Might as well get to the podcast and find out!
We all float down here, in a podcast about the great/underwhelming smash hit of 2017, IT. This week is a tale of two halves of a movie, one half is a shitty horror movie that isn’t scary, and the other, a great story about friendship, growing up and overcoming fears. Also, there’s a clown that eats children. So strap in and get ready to Get to the Podcast.
It's a Mark Wahlberg f%$#fest this week on GTTP. This one hits close to home as we chart the rise and fall(?) of Boston's least beloved icon via discussing the 90's banger FEAR.

This week GTTP is diving into David Ayer's newest movie, Bright. Join us in a gritty cop movie set in South Central LA, no, not Training day, no, not Harsh Times, no, not End of Watch, no, not Street Kings, this is the one with Orcs. Bright is Netflix's first foray into the blockbuster genre and they spared no expense, except in using an original plot of course. Is this movie the victim of a movie studio funded smear campaign via critics? Is Will Smith back? Could they have possibly found a line for the main villain earlier than an hour and a half into the movie? Get to the Podcast and find out!
