A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away a quaint series of movies captured the world’s imagination. Star Wars, a dashing, fun, swashbuckling adventure, full of romance, intrigue and timeless themes. Decades years later the idiot behind LOST edited a bunch of scenes together in a frenetic blur designed to distract the audience from its intrinsic awfulness. The Rise of Skywalker: a movie that happened. Also: Alexx stans Babu Frik.
Our look at the films of Tim Burton starts now with the 1988 comedy/horror classic Beetlejuice. Alexx asks some hard-hitting questions about 80s teeth, Winona Ryder and spelling; while John gets tossed into the worm-ridden wastes of Saturn.
Enjoy your quarantine from a deadly disease by listening to the now-bunkered boys talk about a fictional deadly disease. This 1995 film has it all, bootstrap paradoxes, Bruce Willis’ butt cheeks and, I dunno, Brad Pitt. Also Alexx handles the lockdown by unleashing an insane conspiracy theory…or is it just crazy enough to work.
Special guest comedian/actor/writer Ted Douglass tries to convince us that this movie isn’t terrible. We mostly agree, but man everyone in this movie sucks. Except Knives and that one guy with the face, he’s cool.
