In honor of the late, great Christopher Plummer, Lee, Daniel, Leah and special guest host Sam try and navigate the twists and turns of Rian Johnson's ensemble murder mystery "Knives Out!" (2019), featuring Plummer in one of his last roles. Who is the real stand-out star of this great cast of big names? What's a Timbit and how does that figure in to this film? The hosts also talk about they've watched recently and respond to a rather lengthy and critical bit of listener feedback.

February 22nd, 2021

05MANIACS-articleLarge.jpg

Lee and Leah check out a film Leah suggested for the podcast - and a film that is a shameful blind spot in Lee's trash movie viewing - "Multiple Maniacs" (1970). It's John Waters' first talkie, and features the incomparable talents and screen presence of Divine. Is it too transgressive for its time? Is it too tame these days? Should it be embraced by the LGBTQ community despite some of the less PC content? What's a rosary job? Tune in to find out.

LAWCARTERDANCE.jpg

Lee, Daniel and Leah are back this week checking out two films featuring the talents of the lovely Glenda Farrell. First it's an example of the classic small-town boy gets taken for a sucker tale, "Dance Charlie Dance" (1937) and then they move over to a film about smart, independent female lawyers trying to make their way in a male-dominated profession, "The Law in Her Hands" (1936). Which film did a heel turn on the hosts and made them hate it? Tune in to find out. Leah and Lee also talk about what they've watched as of late.

Lee, Daniel and Leah are back to tackle Paul Thomas Anderson's lengthy epic drama from 1999, "Magnolia". What did they think about the multiple interconnected storylines and how they all came together? Did the talented ensemble cast get enough screen time in their individual parts? How does Daniel feel about a film that was once his favourite film back when he first braved a tornado warning to see it alone in a theater? Did Tom Cruise deserve his Oscar nod here? What did Leah think of the frogs raining from the sky? All of this and more in this lengthy talk about a lengthy film. Also covered: what the hosts have watched as of late.

January 29th, 2021

imageedit_9_5274411309.jpg

Daniel, Lee, Greg and Kerry return to chat about "Captain America: Civil War" (2016). Opinions on this one are far more split than usual, as the hosts debate if this is even really a Captain America film or an Avengers film. Does Spiderman and Black Panther have to be in this? Is the Winter Soldier worth a damn? Do the action scenes at least hold up? Is there enough meat in this two and a half hour film for it to be worth your time? All this and more, so come fight us about it in an airport or something.

TMBDOS! Episode 224: “C. C. & Company” (1970).

January 18th, 2021

CCandCompany.jpg

Lee, Dan, and Leah are back to talk about the goofy little biker film starring Joe Namath, Ann-Margret and William Smith, "C.C. & Company" (1970). How much of a real exploitation film is it? How big of a dick-bag is Namath in this? Why is Ann-Margret's character in any way attracted to Namath's character? Why are the biking scenes so damn long and drawn-out? Fuck Gene Siskel and the body-shaming horse he rode in on? All of these questions and more in this fun episode. Join our podcast biker gang, and let's do some audio crimes together!

TMBDOS! Intermission #29: Lee and Paul’s Top 20 Slasher Films.

January 11th, 2021

texas-chainsaw-massacre-2.jpg

Lee and Paul sat down in October of 2020 to talk about their top 20 slasher films, along with honourable mentions and the like. This is not up to our usual low standards. It sort of went off the rails at times, and the sound quality isn't great (which is why it took so long for Lee to release it). But hey, if you've got an hour and change to kill, this might do the trick.

Featured music: "Song of Madman Marz" by Gary Sales.

TMBDOS! Episode 221: “The Invisible Ray” (1936).

November 16th, 2020

invisibleray.jpg

Lee and Daniel are back, and they are both a bit drunk and barely edited (okay, Lee is quite a bit more drunk than Daniel). But they were determined to talk about the Lambert Hillyer sci-fi/horror film "The Invisible Ray" (1936), featuring the talents of Boris Karloff, Béla Lugosi, and the lovely Frances Drake. They do eventually get there, but it takes them 40 or so minutes. Some of the subjects brought up: Canadian geography; the films that truly scare Lee; bunk science that's somewhat based in reality; Karloff being mistreated by Universal compared to Lugosi; a horrible bit of racism in an otherwise great film; listener comments and what the hosts have watched as of late including talk about the latest episodes of "The Mandalorian".

October 19th, 2020

image-asset.jpeg

Lee and Daniel return to cover one of the films that put Alfred Hitchcock on the map, that being "The 39 Steps" (1935). Some of the conversation revolves around early examples of Hitchcock's visual style and techniques, and tropes. Other things covered: Hitchcock abusing his actors (especially the women); differences between the film and its source material; Hitchcock getting away with sexy situations in the post-code era; and how the hosts could turn this into a Bikini Carwash film (because of course we do). A listener comment is also responded to.

Lee and Paul got back together to record some bonus horror content for October. This time out they review the two slasher films "Blood Song" (1982) & "Mortuary" (1983). This one is off the cuff, mostly unedited, and a bit dog-eared, but the conversation is a fun one. Due to some recording issues the mic levels were not able to be properly balanced, so it's best to use ear buds. Sorry about that.

Lee and Daniel cover some more James Whale this week as they look at "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935). The conversation centers around Whale's very measured changes to tone compared to the first film, and how he still managed to be subversive under the the Hays Code. Other topics: performances; being threatened by a goose; the Monster smoking up and getting drunk; and some background on Homunculi, and just who Doctor Pretorius would need to jerk off in order to make them. Listener comments are also covered.
