The movie Ghost: Nothing breaks our hearts like a movie starring a ghost coming to terms with everything they must leave behind on Earth. Especially when it's a storybook romance with your gorgeous soulmate, your new friend, the hilarious and mysterious Oda Mae Brown, and a future in the finance industry that is bankrolling a seemingly priceless pottery collection.
Let's take a trip down memory lane in West Canaan Texas. Remember the times you were on the Coyotes and in the prime of your life. Certainly don't think about your current day life where your son is a backup QB who has disappointed you by merely getting a full ride to an Ivy league university. He couldn't even knock your Lone Star off your head from 8 yards away. Sorry, this was meant to be a writeup about Varsity Blues but it turned into a supportive letter to Mr. Moxon.
This week's movie features a disgusting portrayal of Atlantic City, New Jersey. This movie supposes that police officers in this lovely destination town are easily bribed, on drugs, gambling and committing crimes of their own... Ok this movie portrays Atlantic City. Nic Cage plays Rick Santoro, a manic dirtbag with a heart of gold attempting to solve a who done it mystery, only it's extremely obvious who done it from the opening credits. Get to the Podcast and hit the jackpot!
Magic is real! Or at least a blind guy can see? Or maybe this is just a universe full of conmen ranging from ages 8 to 65? We...don't...know. Red Lights is a uniquely ridiculous movie that the duo had to tackle eventually. The guys take turns having their heads explode as they witness the world's first Nicolas Cage impression, Sigourney Weaver will her character to death to escape acting in this atrocity halfway through, and of course, Bobby D levitating. This is a film that deserves to be seen because even our best attempts to describe it don't fully do it justice but please Get to the Podcast and hear our best attempts to do so.

GTTP is going with a slightly obscure one this week.... BUT IT WAS WORTH IT! What do you get when you combine a painfully phoned in Bruce Willis, Halle Berry 5 years removed from a best actress win doing Razzie caliber work, and an ending that features a character explaining the plot for twenty straight minutes?

EPISODE 122: Yet again, two men enter...ones leaves...OR DO THEY?! For once GTTP is in agreement (somewhat) this week with the Kevin Costner career killer WATERWORLD.

Time to Get to the Podcast and get the answers to these questions and more!

GTTP is going back to the late 90's Sci Fi Horror well this week with 1997's MIMIC. What do you get when you combine Alien, The Thing, and Oscar Winning director Guillermo Del Toro?

A doctor, an alien, and an empath walk into a bar, stop me if you've heard this one before. This is one for the record books, our movie this week is 1995's Species. If this week's movie teaches you anything it's probably that diabetic people are losers, I think? Or maybe it's that hiring the effects guy from Alien doesn't mean your movie should try to be Alien. We can't really tell you one way or another, this is an outright insane movie that needs to be seen to be believed, So Get to the Podcast and figure out what's going on.
Michael Douglas is back in the spotlight this week as his quest to get America more erotic carries onward with Fatal Attraction. Did Mike ruin his life just to get laid yet again? You know it.

Also this week enjoy a brief but unavoidable discussion of John Wick 3. Happy MDW everybody, enjoy.
It's back to that 90's Denzel well for GTTP this week with the underrated 1998 gem FALLEN. Why does no one list this as one of Denzel's better films?

Time to Get to the Podcast to find out the answers to these questions and more!
This week's episode features one of the best movie premises you've ever heard. This week's episode features the worst movie premise you've ever heard. This week's episode features just one movie. You know what that means; The Purge is a MESS! America is experiencing utopian levels of prosperity by a new gov't program that has insightfully decided to....burn the country down yearly. Not sure how that worked! Oh boy, Ryan and Kevin spent more time discussing what this movie suggests than what is actually in the movie itself and that's not the wrong move, this shit is boring as hell! BUT if you ponder how insurance companies, infrastructure budgets, and basic human emotion functions within the land of "The Purge" you can have yourself quite an entertaining time slandering this 2013 POS. So Get to the Podcast and see what giant plot holes in this universe they missed out on.

GTTP has expanded into a new genre this week that we have criminally ignored. That's right, we're bringing you an erotic thriller starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone; Basic Instinct. Nick Curran is the worst cop on planet Earth, Catherine Tramell is a master manipulator/sociopath. In other words, they're made for each other.
One of the most absurd films that takes place in "reality" in movie history. Road House brings us to the Double Deuce, a desolate bar in rural Missouri that pays a single bouncer, sorry cooler, nearly 200k a year, replaces all of it's furniture daily and is completely free from being policed by society. The main character? Your run of the mill NYU graduate who is a kung fu expert/elite bouncer. Your villain? A business man with seemingly zero shady ventures, with a grand total of 5 henchmen on his payroll. Put it together and you get a classic Swayze film that is entertaining as hell from start to skinny dipping finish. It's the Road House episode, what more do you need to know?
Don't watch The Internship, watch Wedding Crashers instead. Not much more needs to be said.
It's Casper the Friendly, Lonely, Depressed, Abandoned, Manipulated Ghost. The unquestioned saddest movie in GTTP history, this one almost ground the podcast to a halt. The true curse of this movie isn't Casper's inability to pass on, it's the audience being forced to confront the darker undertones of this child's film. Try your best to not think too hard about this one or you'll end up like your favorite hosts, dejected and devastated for our poor friendly ghost.

A momentous episode of GTTP this week for your ears. Tango, Cash, Sly, Russell. This is as heavy hitting as 80's action gets. Does the GTTP duo have what it takes to take on Ray Tango and Gabriel Cash?

Strap in listener, this is a big week for Get To The Podcast.
