What happens when you take an iconic franchise, give it a great director who also has appeared in the first classic movie? You get...the worst movie of 2018. Why Shane, why? Predator politics, alien dogs playing fetch, a wooden board for a lead, The Predator truly has it all. Unfortunately, having it all is far too much to make a good movie.
What do you get when you combine two of the most decorated and respected actors of our lifetime for their first ever team up film? An...awfully written cop drama that features a 68 year old Al Pacino banging out bench press reps like he's Stallone in his prime? Join us this week as we watch two unquestionable legends attempt to tarnish untarnishable legacies by acting in one of the thinnest scripts we've ever encountered. Are there two character traits per main character? No, no there is not. Is Carla Gugino's character, Karen, disgraced in a way we've rarely if ever seen in GTTP history? Yes it is. Join in this week we review the movie that finally paired Deniro and Pacino as an on screen duo and somehow managed to completely drop the ball.
It's the bad Speed, the much much worse, much duller Speed.

It's happening! GTTP has accidentally stumbled upon one of their deepest episodes of all time this week. The warning signs were there, M Night bomb, Zooey Deschanel clearly banking a paycheck, Mark Wahlberg.....is in it. All of this leads us to a nearly endless source of questions. We could have gone on for hours but eventually decided to show mercy on our own brains. Hope you guys enjoy Getting to the Podcast this week as much as we enjoyed ending this episode.
Ep 98 of GTTP sees Kevin and Ryan go back to the Alien well with the 1992 David Fincher banger ALIEN 3. This ep features an intense argument where one member argues it's mediocre while the other argues it is....slightly better than that. Can Ryan name three characters in a movie he watched an hour beforehand? Who hates Alien 3 more: Kevin or David Fincher? Was Bishop II a droid or not? Time to Get to the Podcast!
I Know Who Killed Me is what Lindsay Lohan's career says when Lindsay Lohan walks in a room. Get to the Podcast for more of these killers jokes.
Jason Statham fights a prehistoric shark. If you require more information about this week's movie your expectations are already far too high. This week the review is about a movie where a shark cage is used to administer a poison dart, no we're not doing Jaws. It's a movie where a shark tracker is fashioned to the shark so that it makes noise whenever it's close, and a small boy argues with his mother that he can go swimming in the soon to be shark infested water. No, we're seriously not doing Jaws. The shark in this movie is so powerful that is pulls the boat that our heroes are aboard, ending with the protagonist using a one liner about the shark's mouth before he kills it, ok fine, we're doing Chinese Jaws. THE MEG. Get beneath the thermocline this week so you can Get to the Podcast.
Gather round and listen to the tale of the world's least rewatchable movie ever. That's right, this movie's entire premise only works without knowing the (extremely easily guessed) twist ending. After that, this movie is a jumbled mess of a movie that makes literally no sense. Join us and Get to the Podcast.
Knock knock let the devil into GET TO THE PODCAST this week. The devil being a PG-13 rating stamped onto an R rated property. That's right the duo is tackling 2018's TOM HARDY THE MOVIE (aka Venom). One host is insulted while the other is pleasantly surprised this ep. Get to the podcast to find out who's who!
The movie is twice as long as the title. The shots of clouds outnumber the shots of horses, which are endless. That's right, it's one of the best five movies Ryan has ever seen....? OK THEN. GTTP finally tackles a highly controversial movie in their lore, The Assassin....no the titles too long to type again. Get to the Podcast and decide for yourself if this 2.5 hour cowboy flop is actually better than every movie in the IMDB top ten.

Nope, we're not doing the good one. That's right, 2011's prequel to the John Carpenter classic is this week's movie. What happens when a super fan director gets to make the movie of his dreams? Well apparently he completely goes away from the qualities that made the first movie great and he turns it into a generic horror movie with no soul. Whoops.
It's a horse movie this week for GTTP. Ravenous is a boring movie where nothing happens minus a few people being eaten at one point, Ryan LOVES it! There's almost nothing for the duo to talk about in this boring snooze fest so they spend a lot of the episode talking about snowstorms and the time Kevin manipulated Ryan into making a terrible fantasy football pick. This is more of a deep cut for the loyal listeners as you try to get through hearing about this underground Guy Pearce movie about how terrible it would be to live during any time period that isn't now.
Oh baby, we got a real doozy this week. Paparazzi, a Mel Gibson fueled fever dream about the life threatening struggles of....having your picture taken. That's right, a movie about the trial and tribulations of a young actor whose career has reached a level he could only fantasize about, and how a slight inconvenience should allow for him to commit mass murder. There's no way to prepare yourself for this movie. You just have to strap in, Get to the Podcast, and hope you survive.
Happy Halloween from your favorite movie snobs. This week we're revisiting an older horror cult classic, Phantasm. This was a polarizing episode where we couldn't agree if this movie was good for it's microscopic budget or bad for not spending an extra 50 bucks to hire a better actor than Jody. This episode feels much like the movie, a fever dream where no one is really sure what is going on, so Get to the Podcast and try and make sense of it all.
This week is a very special episode of your favorite movie bitch fest. The cynical duo takes a trip back into their snobby past and watches Grown Ups, the movie that defined the realization that they couldn't stand talking to casual movie fans. Watching Adam Sandler & the Gang laugh at their own horrible jokes for an hour and a half (but not THREE AND HALF HOURS) broke their brains. It turned them into who they are today. Perhaps it was the numerous terrible fat jokes, the repeated Rob Schneider failures or the bad water park scenes that turned them to the dark side. One thing is for sure, it wasn't Tim Meadows. You may never look at your hosts the same way again after this one, much like they can't ever look at the blue skies in Grown Ups again.
One of the all timer's today. Ghost's of Mars has made our hosts question who made the film, their own existence in life, and how many times over the heroes should have been dead. Is this the most plot hole filled movie in podcast history? It seems like it. Is this movie offensive every step of the way? Absolutely. This episode is strictly business, no time for small talk, just GA GA GA Get to the Podcast!
GTTP is proud to announce their first Neeson Action thriller this week, that's right we're doing Run All Night! Wait no it's actually Non-Stop! No that's not right it's the not the one on the plane it's the one on the train: 2018's THE COMMUTER! Ryan gushes and Kevin shrugs this week as the duo break down the inexplicable 2nd act of Oskar Schindler's career. It's time to Get To The Podcast!
American high school X has been taken over by aliens. There is a minor car accident out front which leads to two young girls brawling on the hood of a car. Elijah Wood has the audacity to show up to his first day of school without talking to anyone and gets elbowed in the mouth and then has his groin rammed into a flag poll by 6 other students. A young couple is engaged in an actual physical dispute...I...I'm sorry, this is before the aliens invade. Allow GTTP to check our notes, aliens have invaded, the football team is defeating their rival, the at odds couple is making plans to be married, and everyone else has the confidence they always wish they had to be the best version of themselves...I hope this...ends? Get to the Podcast and listen to two guys figure out why this alien isn't the savior of these kids...
GTTP is pivoting this week to become a full on wrestling podcast by way of 1991's SUBURBAN COMMANDO. What happens when Kevin and Ryan revisit a beloved childhood classic 20 years later? A case of domestic abuse, a lot of crappy one liners, and an extended discussion over the untapped potential of the great Christopher Lloyd are the answers. Time to Get to the Podcast!
From Hudson Hawk to JONAH HEX, the Gttp duo can't seem to get out of their own way again this week. Why Kevin thought it'd be a good idea to do a supernatural western we have no idea (maybe it's because of the western breakthrough he had on Silverado), but here we are with this 2010 piece of trash. Josh Brolin + Michael Fassbender + Western somehow equals a steaming pile of you know what and Kevin and Ryan are here to explain the whys and the hows of it. Time to saddle up and Get to the Podcast!
If ever there was an example of movie star ego going unchecked it's 1991's HUDSON HAWK. GTTP duo Kevin and Ryan subjected themselves to this turkey and ...the results were as expected. Is it a good idea to turn a song into a movie? Whose idea was it to marry a looney tunes comedy to a violent R rated heist film? Spoiler alert the answer is.. Bruce Willis.
A highly anticipated sequel to a cult classic with the same cast and director involved, what could possibly go wrong? Oh...almost everything? Join us this week as we try and figure out why Boondock Saints 2 became a sophomoric comedy rife with stupid humor and terrible dialogue. We have one half of the podcast desperately trying to hang on to the original and the other half pointing out that blatantly ripping off The Godfather 2 doesn't make your movie The Godfather 2. So tune in this week as Troy Duffy's famed second attempt to strike gold falls miserably flat on Get to the Podcast!
