The Grand Budapest Hotel | The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou – Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! This week Phil, Dehart, Cheats and myself go through a couple of Wes Anderson flicks (per Cheats’ birthday request) and actually enjoy ourselves for once when talking about movies for this show. (Just kidding). This week we go over The Grand Budapest Hotel as well as The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. In this episode, we talk about which legitimate business we would each start, Phil explodes his screen with humongous Billy Murray boner, and Cheats gets a little emotional when it comes to Wes Anderson movies. Enjoy!
Commando | Suburban Commando – Welcome back Motion Picture Meltdowniacs to the first episode of Season 3! We realize it hasn’t been that long since Season 2 ended, but we’d like to get things back on a regularly scheduled track! We’ve got a great 18-20 episode season ready for you guys, and what better way to start it off than with a little bit of Arnold and Hulk Hogan?
No Retreat, No Surrender | Cyborg – Hello everyone! Welcome to the season finale of Motion Picture Meltdown – Season 2! In this episode, Mark and I tear apart two horrible Jean-Claude Van Damme films, in No Retreat, No Surrender, and Cyborg. We decided to pick two of JCVD’s most terrible and hilariously cheesy movies to finish out this season. We want to apologize for the inconsistency that plagued our podcasts all season long, and we promise to get our shit together and on a regular basis for Season 3, which starts in late February/ early March! In this episode, Mark and I discuss the importance of cock push-ups to cardio, how many stereotypical traits can be jammed into a stereotypical character in one scene, and how thankful we were that Cyborg wasn’t actually Masters of The Universe 2. Enjoy and see you next season! Continue reading “MPM: S02/E18 – Never Surrender to Cyborgs!”
Tremors | Tremors II: Aftershocks – Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! Only three episodes left of the season, so make sure you’re heading over to iTunes and subscribing! This week Mark, myself, and former MPM co-host Phil Collins go over Tremors and Tremors II: Aftershocks. We discuss the stupidity of blabbing about science in creature movies that make no sense, the outline of Michael Gross’ career, the downfalls of being named Melvin, and the nonsensical evolution of Graboids. Enjoy the show! Continue reading “MPM: S02/E17 – Up For Graboids!”
Thankskilling – Hello to all you fantastic MPM fans out there, and Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Motion Picture Meltdown and United Cypher. This week Mark and I took on the challenge of watching one of the only (for good reason) Thanksgiving horror movies out there in Thankskilling. In this episode, we talk about the fact that you cannot argue logic in a movie that’s entire plot makes no sense, we discuss the fact that after all these horror movies, there should be no more college students left to kill, and also the lack of holiday horror for our backseat holidays. We hope you have a great Turkey Day, and enjoy this fowl episode. 🙂 Continue reading “MPM: S02/E16 – Gobble, Gobble, Motherf*cker!”
