Tentacles, spiders, and flying bugs. Oh my! When a mysterious mist rolls into town, a group of people trapped in a grocery store come into conflict with the dangerous creatures outside and the growing tension inside. Sounds crazy? Sure is! But we had plenty of parts of this movie that we really liked. Aside from a bit of the good old horror movie stupidity, it’s an engaging movie. Director Frank Darabont created a new ending that made Stephen King himself jealous, so yeah, it’s pretty dark.
Lumos! Two brave commissioners have sent a request by owl post for Professors A.Ron and Jim to watch the third (and overall most-loved) Harry Potter movie. Jim cries “stupefy” to get this movie away from him. But A.Ron casts “protego” and defends the movie. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who has helmed many decorated dramas, and based on the book series by she-who-must-not-be-named, this movie takes a darker look at the whimsical world of Harry Potter.
Thank you to Keenan and Maggie for commissioning this episode!
Bald Move is rereleasing this very special pod in honor of the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi! Tune in and chill out to a very special episode from the Bald Move archive.
Once again commissioner Fernando Rodriguez (you may better know him as FernNYC17 on our forums) steps up with a choice selection, this time the oft maligned Return of the Jedi. Often dismissed as derivative or childish when compared to A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back respectively, we have nothing but love for the climax of the story of Skywalker. It’s got the best space battle, the best lightsabre battle, and the best puppets in all of Star Wars. The Special Edition changes? Not so much love.
Note: This podcast was recorded out of order because we needed a live podcast we could do that was accessible and at least semi-family friendly for the Rocket City Nerd Con.
It’s time to pull back into the back of the semi-truck and put FEENY into hiatus until it’s time for our next shadowy flight through the action TV of yesteryear. Before we go, we recap an all-time classic Knight Rider episode, the feature length season 2 premiere, “Goliath”. It’s got everything. The evil Garthe Knight, African warlords, conniving widows, menacing science montages, and Michael and KITT getting legitimately jacked up in a scene that traumatized me as a youth. Can a millennial ever hope to understand the love between a Gen-X boy and his increasingly magical Trans-Am? Find out on this very special season finale of MR. FEENY!
Since its release, The Matrix trilogy has influenced both entertainment and pop culture. The unconventional legacy is peppered with action, iconic characters, and that amazing 90s cyber grunge aesthetic. But above all the spectacle are the questions about human existence, free will, control, and order. Tune in to hear A.Ron and Jim’s conflicting takes.
It’s not a great movie, but it’s a great time! Is it legal? Does it make sense? Isn’t this just Karate Kid 1? How many Bonsai trees must suffer before Daniel and Mr. Miyagi repair their relationship? These are the important questions Jim and A.Ron ask each other. It’s a laugh out loud movie, and a laugh out loud podcast.
Thanks Becky for commissioning this podcast. Happy Birthday, Norm!
We left it up to listeners to guide us to the most improved THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO episode ever, and what can I say? They rolled a natural 20 and crushed the skill check. The show writers had a lot of thoughts on Dungeons and Dragons, Satanic Panics, the Youth and Their Vidya Games. A lot of hilariously wrong thoughts, but in the best, most entertaining way possible. Grab your giant sand dial, don your best fez, and be sure to draw your destiny card because it’s time to enter the dark, sinister, literally underground world of Wizards and Warlocks!
IMDB really picked a gem of an AIRWOLF episode for us this week! David Carridine? A sorta/quasi showdown with an evil Airwolf? A fiery redhead last seen doing cow math on Knight Rider? Some nice character work between Dom and String? This episode has it all, along with some terrific helicopter action sequences and pulse pounding synth holding it all together. Pure nostalgic bliss!
Rachel Bloom stars as Rebecca Bunch, a high-powered lawyer from NYC who moves to LA to rekindle an old flame. Each episode features at least two original musical numbers. It’s relatable and funny in the way it discusses mental health. Though it was one of the lowest rated shows on TV, it kept getting renewed and currently has a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s fair to say that it’s aged well.
On the second half of this season of Mr. Feeny, we’re checking out the BEST episodes of the series we’ve already seen, and this week we’re taking a second look at A-Team’s “Deadly Maneuvers”! Seems like everybody wants an arch nemesis to square off against in the 80s, and this week the A-Team is met with a B-Team assembled from the personals section of Soldier of Fortune magazine by a corrupt consortium of rich dicks who are sick of the A-Teams meddling in their affairs. You’ll never guess, but Mr. T is once more laid low by drinking milk. I pity the fool who doesn’t got milk!
