MPM: Ep. 278 – Wally Winka’s Wax Factory

Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! Dehart brings us back into the horror realm (sort of), and picks the movies for us this week. In this episode, we roast through Waxwork and it’s sequel, Waxwork II: Lost In Time. You’ll hear us talk about which museum exhibits would draw us in to death, I talk about how much better Waxwork would be if Joe Dante directed it, and Phil has a problem with the everlasting concept of “magic, motherfucker”. Enjoy!

MPM: Ep. 218 – Yo, (Insemi)Noid!

Pretty creepy 80’s effects.

Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! I picked the movies this week, as we jump back into the bread and butter (and pickled eggs?) of our podcast by roasting a couple of 1980’s alien movies. In this episode, we get our fill of goop while we cover Inseminoid as well as an equally gooey and somehow even more messed up, Xtro. This week you’ll hear us talk about our preferred method of planetary infiltration travel, Cheats will complain about goo and terrible movies (again), and Dehart wants to know why there isn’t more inseminating. Enjoy!

Chrome dome.

Hello everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! Continuing our Fantasy genere theme of February, Phil, Dehart and myself go back into our comfort zone of the 80’s, and go through a couple of fantasy fan favorites. We roast the 1981 King Arthur story, Excalibur, as well as one of the most amazing love story movies of all time, The Princess Bride. In this episode, we talk about whether we’d rather be the Dread Pirate Roberts or King Arthur, Phil explains his idea for a retelling of the King Arthur story, and we find out which child celebrity Dehart’s parents used to call him. Enjoy!
