The Midnight Drive-In: Tromeo & Juliette And Hardware

This week we’re looking at two films that have a cameo by the Almighty Lemmy.  First up is the James Gunn penned Troma film Tromeo & Julliette.  After that we check out the 1990 sci fi horror film Hardware.  After some listener mail we get into some other stuff we’ve watch such as Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, Noah watched the entire SAW franchise, the 30 For 30 documentary on Ric Flair, and Joe Lynch’s new film Mayhem.  Then at the end for no real reason we make fun of The Flat Earth Society.

Challenged: Did CT Say It

In this special bonus episode of Challenged Bryan plays a game show with his other co-hosts called DID CT SAY IT?  He reads off 15 quotes in his best CT voice and the others have to say if it’s a quote from CT or did another Challenge member say it.  Lots of fun was had.

CvS: Slamballs and Elbow Brawls

The contestants are dropping like flies and it seems like everyone wants to go into elimination. Drama drama everywhere on the stars team, including a bodyguard who can’t tell if an injury is an accident or not.

Graveyard Duck Episode 18 – Bucky O’Hare

Time for another listener request and this time your hosts get introduced to a game that they are both relatively unfamiliar with. Find out whether Bucky O’Hare is worth the $100 price tag, or whether it’s just another TMNT ripoff.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Is Here!

It’s here.  The movie Marvel fans have been waiting for since the mid credits scene in the first Avengers movie is finally coming in May 2018.  Avengers: Infinity War marks the end of what Marvel has been working towards for the last 10 years since Nick Fury waked out of the darkness and told Tony Stark he wanted to talk to him about the Avengers Initiative.

Whether you are over the superhero boom, was never into it, or are still in love with it as I am since 2000’s X-Men, you have to appreciate Marvel’s commitment to making this cinematic universe play out like it has.  Rumors are we may be saying goodbye to some of our favorite heroes.  My guess is that won’t happen until Avengers 4 in 2019.

Reports seem to be Marvel may forgo the serialized format for more stand alone films heading out of 2019 but I wouldn’t count on that as fact.  I’m sure Marvel has plenty of surprises up their sleeve.  I’m still holding on for a Slapstick/Sleepwalker crossover.

Geek Nerdery Podcast: Justice League

My co-host from The Midnight Drive-In Podcast Noah drops in and we sit down to talk some Justice League.  What’s good?  What’s bad?  What just all around doesn’t make sense?  After that we do talk some comics.  There is a spoiler section so feel free to listen until the spoiler warning goes up if you are wanted to avoid spoilers.

Music provided by The Fantastic Plastics.

The Midnight Drive-In: Freaked & Street Trash

This week we’re talking about 2 movies we put on our list but really have no recollection of why we teamed them up.  The only thing we can guess is that they both have mutants in them?  So we’re talking about Freaked and Street Trash.  After that we go into some discussions of Spielberg, Thankskilling, Gremlins, Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, The Great Outdoors, Nightkill, RAW, and The Punisher.

CvS: Tow Big or Tow Home

Will we ever get a break from The Challenge? Maybe not. But this season is shaping up to be one of the best, despite only being a “mini season”. We get drama, a challenge, nomination and an elimination… all in one episode. Also, someone goes nuts. Good times.

Survivor Series (2017) Aftermath

After two nights of wrestling, give me more. I’m calling it now. Survivor Series (2017) was the best PPV, special event, whatever you wanna call it from the WWE. NXT TakeOver: War Games is just a notch below.

The five on five Survivor Series style match’s were awesome! The face off between Snuka-Jax was something I been waiting on for awhile. And I popped when Snuka said, I’m a real samoan. That five on five ladies match was great. Hated to see Becky Lynch get eliminated so early and Asuka cleaning house I didn’t expect anything less.

As for the men’s match. I knew someone was gonna double cross their teammates but thought it was going to be SDLive who did it but it all started with Joe and Balor and it all went down hill from there. Strowman getting taken out early was expected. Having a power house like him, he could take out all of Team Blue. Cena made a return, I guess he is Team Cena unless you count his blue jean shorts. Angle, glad to see he’s back in the E but he can’t go like he used to, a bit slower in the ring and his match up with Cena was a letdown. The ending with Triple H turning on Angle wasn’t a big surprise but Strowman dominating Hunter was nice. It even happened twice. Team RAW won the night beating Team SmackDown Live four to three.

Styles and Lesnar put on a great match. Hated to see Styles ragdolled around the ring but once he got his comeback it was on he took Lesnar to the limits. Styles should’ve won but they gotta keep Lesnar strong. Styles can’t put on a bad match and he brought out a lot in Brock tonight.

SHIELD beat New Day… Also Miz-Corbin was good, it became my match of the night. Corbin won. And Usos best the Bar.

Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair did not disappoint… Woo! I can see these two ladies having a program together very soon. Bliss had the upper hand most of the match but Flair walked out the victor, but she had to work for it.

Tomorrow is Monday Night RAW and the fallout of Survivor Series… What did you think of Survivor Series? Comment below.

The Midnight Drive-In: The Punisher (1989) & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

With the release of the Punisher series on Netflix we figured it was a good time to go back to The Punisher’s cinematic roots.  In addition it’s always a good time to go back and check out the 1990 cinematic version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Turns out these movies have a lot more in common than we thought.  Since listener Allen asks the hard questions we also find out who is everyone’s favorite turtle is.  We also talk about Baywatch, Robert Kirkman’s Secret History Of Comics, Event Horizon, and Colossal.

Survivor Series Predictions And Thoughts On NXT TakeOver: War Games

Tonight is the WWE Survivor Series and it’s RAW vs. SmackDown Live in a battle for brand supremacy. And after last nights NXT TakeOver War Games match I’m totally looking forward to Team RAW taking on Team SmackDown in a five on five Survivor Series match and after looking over who’s on who’s team I gotta say Team RAW with Angle, Triple H, Strowman, Bálor, and Samoa Joe will walk out as victors.

I can see Team SDLive fall apart mid match with someone turning on their partner, maybe Orton attacking Nakamura or even Roode doing so.

In a non-title match Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is taking on WWE Champion AJ Styles. I really want Styles to go over because Lesnar is getting old in the ring with Suplex City. But the E likes to book Lesnar strong and he’ll go over, not in a matter of minutes or seconds because Styles will put up a fight.

In another five on five Survivor Series match Team SDLive with Lynch, Carmella, Naomi, Snuka and Neidhart will go over Team RAW. SDLive have the strongest women wrestlers out of the ten.

In a match between Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss should be a classic. And the amount of momentum Flair has behind her, I see Bliss going over. WWE loves a good story but they also like to turn everything upside down.

SHIELD is facing New Day and SHIELD will go over to keep Roman Reigns strong.

Lastly… Miz, Enzo, and Uso’s will win their matches.

NXT TakeOver: War Games was a fantastic show. I never seen Kassius Ohno get man handled before. He and Lars Sullivan put on a good short match with Sullivan going over via pinfall.

The fatal four way women’s match for the NXT Women’s Championship was match of the night for myself and I’m so happy Ember Moon won and became the new NXT Women’s Champion. I’ve been following her career since Shimmer. She’s a great athlete and what she is doing with the Ember Moon character is awesome.

As for the NXT War Games match I loved every bit of it, but I could’ve done without bringing weapons into the match and I didn’t have a problem that the cage didn’t have a top on it. Having a ceiling on the cage is more restrictive.

Graveyard Duck Episode 17 – Mega Man X

Thor: Ragnarok is the Best ’80s Sci-Fi/Fantasy Movie of 2017

As a child of the NES and Aqua Net generation, I cut my cinematic teeth on the movies from Cannon Films and Orion Pictures like Masters of the Universe and Robocop. It’s my firm belief that the best action movies truly came from the 1980s. Certainly, they aren’t high brow or even have intelligent or coherent plot logic in many cases, but they were fun. So why am I mentioning these film studios and this rad decade when talking about Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel’s latest cinematic universe release?

The Midnight Drive-In: The Wizard & Little Monsters

You’re not going to believe this but we actually dive pretty deep into The Wizard and Little Monsters.  sure there is some nostalgia in there but we talk about the themes of loss, divorce, mental illness, and the love of siblings.  We weren’t expecting it either.  After that we chat about other stuff we watched like The Devil’s Candy, Summer Of Fear, The Babysitter, and 1922.

XXX: One in a Million

It’s been a long season, but we made it. Finally. Well, sorta. We’re not going to know who wins until next week, but that doesn’t stop us from speculating this time around. Also, meet us (and some Challenge people) in Yorkville, IL next month.
