This week Drew and Badway keep the conversation above 50 mph by discussing the adrenaline pumping classic, Speed (starring a freshly buzzed Keanu Reeves, and everyone’s 90s crush, Sandra Bullock). The guys try to make sense of the friendly bus driver’s skeleton hair, debate who pays when a policeman steals and destroys your car, and how to survive a falling elevator by jumping just before it hits the bottom floor. Other topics include: the logistics of a bus launching across a gigantic highway gap, Dennis Hopper’s ranking on the villain scale, and Badway’s wishlist for additional bus passengers. Be sure to stick around to the end for some 100% fact checked (yeah right!) Speed fun facts and trivia.
There’s no getting around it. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is a terrible movie. That doesn’t stop The Last Row Podcast from having some fun with it! Drew and Badway spend about a minute discussing what went right and about 50 minutes discussing what went wrong, ultimately devolving into a conversation about how the movie compares to the production quality of an “adult film” parody of itself. Things go downhill from there. Prepare yourself. Things get Toasty.
In a special mini-episode, Drew and Badway give their thoughts on Ridley Scott’s newest “space movie” Alien: Covenant. Topics include: How the movie holds up as a sequel to Prometheus, Michael Fassbender’s fantastic performance, likes/dislikes, and the future of the Alien franchise.
Note: Our next episode on Mortal Kombat: Annihilation will be released this Thursday, stay tuned!
Listen up, geeks! The Last Row Podcast is back with an all new episode, crashing everyone’s favorite grad party movie, Can’t Hardly Wait. We’re talking dorks, jocks, losers, stoners, posers, phonies, jerks, and loners. We’re also talking sex bags, Sex Green, concert t-shirt etiquette, Smash Mouth, and the great Mike Dexter. Now go home and play this episode on your computer, Urkels!
Drew and Badway get an “F+” in attendance when it comes to putting out episodes of The Last Row Podcast lately, so the guys put in a little extra credit with an extended look at the 90s action/thriller The Substitute. Is Tom Berenger a sloppy fighter? Is running drugs through a school really a good plan? Is Juan Lacas an effective gang leader? Why did Marc Anthony look so sickly in this movie? Can you do a love scene with a woman in a full leg cast? So many questions. Take notes, there WILL be a test!
The Last Row Podcast returns from a short hiatus with a quick debate on the moral questions posed in the 2016 sci-fi film, Passengers. Fear not, Drew and Badway still find time to discuss more important issues such as: big mouthed robot bartenders, cleaning bots that do the REAL dirty work, a hidden serial killer plot, and Andy Garcia’s award winning work in the film.
Note: Our next episode (The Substitute) will be released on Thursday, May 4th.
After another small break, Drew and Badway are back to break down Disney’s 1994 classic, Blank Check. From batting cage to inflatable boxing ring, the guys tally and critique all of Preston Waters’ purchases as he carelessly blows through $1,000,000 in less than a week. Other topics include the inner workings of the Waters brothers business (Hand and Foot), a return of the villain scale, whether adults should question an 11-year old spending time with a mysterious older businessman named Mr. Macintosh without having met him, and Shay Stanley’s dedication to going undercover. Finally, the guys uncover a 20+ year old movie bombshell, simply known as “Plan 442.”
This week the guys bring you a detailed breakdown of all things Point Break. Adrenaline junkies Drew and Badway are talking Gary Busey’s awful surveillance tactics, Johnny Utah’s flimsy undercover back story, and Bodhi’s outlook on life. Other topics include: ID’ing a perp via butthole, surfer etiquette and their attitudes towards outsiders, an “is surfing a sport?” debate, and a semi-hot take on the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Finally, the guys answer some burning questions from the depths of the IMDB message boards.
The Last Row Podcast daydreams through this week’s episode featuring the 90s childhood classic, Sidekicks! Drew and Badway, along with Chuck Norris (appearing in spirit only) discuss what Sidekicks meant to them as kids, and how it holds up today. Topics include: the unhinged and greasy Joe Piscopo, Randy Cellini a.k.a. the world’s weakest bully, Barry’s alcoholic trainer, the cheapness of Chuck Norris entering the competition, and theorizing about Chuck’s participation as just another Barry daydream.
This week’s On Demand episode highlights the hosts’ most anticipated film releases of 2017. Predictably, Drew favors comic books and Zac Efron’s abs, while Badway leans toward apes and aliens (space movies?!). Additionally, Drew tries his luck in an Oscars themed edition of Plot Fiction.
