Undisputed GTTP king CHRISTIAN SLATER makes his triumphant return to the Pod today with 1996’s JOHN WOO/JOHN TRAVOLTA action hit BROKEN ARROW! Unacknowledged nuclear fallout, good old fashioned 1990’s Hollywood racism, and a side of prudent financial advice from big bad Travolta are all in store for you on this week’s ep. Time to Get to the Podcast people.
I was going to do a write-up for this episode, but I'm on vacation.
Pointless evil plan alert! GTTP loves a good plan that is both useless AND stupid and Disturbing Behavior features a great example. Parents, is your child...basically normal? If so, sign their souls over to a man you just met so they can wear a cardigan to school at 17 years old. Totally worth it.
Get to the Podcast gets to the nature of reality with this week’s 2019 hit SERENITY. Matthew McConaughey as a hard drinking chain smoking fishing boat captain? Anne Hathaway as his ex wife who comes back into his life with murderous intent? A bats%$t Jason Clarke as the abusive new husband and would be murder victim? Sounds like classic film noir to me! Just kidding that’s only the first 50 minutes. Get to the podcast today to hear what we think of both halves of this… one of a kind film.
The darkest episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was on the verge of happening in this week's film, and then it just...didn't. Then we almost had an Ike Barenholtz leading hero move, and then...we didn't. What we were left with was....something? Whether that something was any good is the real question.
This week the guys are doing a third straight movie about the apocalypse. Wonder where this inspiration is coming from? 28 Days Later is this week's movie, which is either a smash hit zombie movie, or a genre ruining movie that doesn't even feature zombies, tune in to find out who is right.
This week we examine what happens when you take a beloved property and turn it into a surefire hit movie by....not making the movie anything like the original story. That's right, this week we're covering one of the worst adaptations into film ever: Resident Evil. Why would they need to keep the tension, the constant dread, and eery setting for a story when you could just make a sterile action movie that isn't remotely scary? Get to the Podcast and find out.
An uncharismatic crime drama or underrated gem? This is the question of Year of the Dragon. On the one hand we have Mickey Rourke firing on all cylinders, on the other we have some of the worst casting we've ever covered in any film. The runner up choice for the last gangster month movie is this week's episode, decide for yourselves!
World got you down? Fear of the unknown creeping into your thoughts as we're all quarantined in our homes? Well take your mind off all that with this episode about the movie Outbreak! That's right let's talk about the world's worst pandemic response team ease your mind as you watch them splash and needle themselves with infected blood and watch the world's most irresponsible citizens kiss their girlfriends while bleeding from their eyeballs. You know, a real escape from it all. Get to the Podcast because where else can you get to these days? Stay safe and enjoy!
The worst thing in the world is wasted talent. These wise words from Sonny should have been spoken to Billy Zane, an actor that one half of this podcast apparently feels had the makings of being a top ten actor in movie history. Demon Knight is where the movie industry did a dry run to see if From Dusk Till Dawn would have an audience and boy the answer was a resounding yes. So Get to the Podcast and get this episode about a movie you've for sure never heard of.
The final installment of gangster month is here. Is A Bronx Tale one of the most slept on movies in the genre? Is Ryan just really obsessed with running form? Did Cali once commit a murder? Get to the Podcast and find out.
Week 3 of gangster month is here. Depp. Bale. DILLINGER. The true story of one of the most notorious bank robbers in American History is told in Michael Mann's PUBLIC ENEMIES. What could go wrong? Spoiler Alert: EVERYTHING. Hopefully this podcast isn't as disappointing as the movie. Get to the Podcast to find out!
Week two of Gangster Month is here! This week Nino Brown and The Carter's rise and fall is the topic as New Jack City is up for review. The film that gave us Ice T, police officer, and Wesley Snipes, leading star, New Jack City is a must see entry into the genre. Now sit your five dollar ass down before I Get to the Podcast.
Get to the Podcast kicks off GANGSTER MONTH with the underrated 1990 classic KING OF NEW YORK! What do you get when you combine the birth of the modern Walken, an out of his mind Larry Fishburne, and according to Cali the most corrupt cops in the history of film? You get yourself a God Damn gangster classic. Time to Get to the Podcast.
This week GTTP takes a trip inside the insane circus that is the Nevada criminal justice system. A deeply disturbed man has committed heinous crimes, and it's up to Dr. Octopus to convince a judge within two hours that this man has internally murdered his the perpetrator of these crimes and to spare his life. Who better than to aid on this journey than John Cusack and Ray Liotta of course? This is a movie that's first viewing is it's best so naturally we will discuss why Ryan has seen this movie over 100 times.
The year is 1995. A relatively unknown director who merely wants to live a humble existence making movies where he films entire city blocks explode. He needs to make a good first impression in the industry so he decides to cast two up and coming actors as his leads. He reaches out to Fox's Martin Lawrence and asks him to play a constantly worried police officer who is always trying to reign in his parter, played by the Fresh Prince himself Will Smith. Mike LOWWWERY is your typical millionaire police officer who runs in circles with models and high end escorts when he's not too busy getting screamed at by his Captain for murdering 3 people on a drug bust. The result? Bad Boys.
In this week's episode we attempt to not discuss The Fanatic, and fail miserably. We also spend a little time discussing one of the biggest movies of 2019, the bland and instantly forgettable Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. What a terrible title! Have action blockbusters regressed for the last ten years? Hobbs & Shaw will answer that.
2019. One of the best movie years in recent memory. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Irishman, Joker, and THE FANATIC. We can 100% say with a straight face and zero exaggeration this movie is as memorable as all three and our lives will never be the same again. What do you get when you mix Fred Durst, a swinging for the fences John Travolta, and Autism? You get a god damn cinematic classic. Now buckle up and get to the podcast.
