Hey everyone! Get your neck outta that noose and cheer up. It's 2017 and there's another episode of The Basement Vagrants Podcast! In episode 81 we go over 2016's movie offerings and determine if it's the best year for movies or the worst! (SPOILER IT'S THE WORST). We also look ahead to next year to see what we have to look forward to. Also, Schweitzer and Bubs review Star Wars Rogue One Featuring Dearth Vader and Reference, and Recker actually watched a movie he swore he'd never watch. We also have trivia and lots of pointless rambling, all your favorite things. Here's to 2017, it couldn't get any worse!
Baby it's cold outside, so snuggle up with Bubs, Recker and Schweitzer with episode 80. In this wonderful piece of podcasting we chat about some of the summer movies we missed including Star Trek Beyond and The Magnificent 7. We also talk about what we have to look forward to during Oscar season (not much) and the year in film in general.
After that Schweitzer and Recker talk about what's going on in comics including the fate of Blue Beatle, Ms Marvel's failed attempt at swaying the vote, Aquaman being awesome and more.
Bubs and Recker review Metallica's latest album Hardwired... to Self-Destruct and compare it to Megadeth's latest album Dystopia.
All this plus news, trivia and lots of general nonsense that you've come to expect from us.
Thanks for sticking with us!
The summer draws to a close and there still isn't much to see in the theater. Wait, what's this? A Tom Hanks movie? Alright, well how bad can it be? Find out as we review Sully, the movie about a plane disaster in New York that premiered the same week as September 11th. Great marketing.
Like a bad case of the herp, we have returned to ruin your sexual encounters. We discuss what has been keeping us away from the mic for so long and what we've been watching in the mean time. Schweitzer reviews Suicide Squad and then we all join in to talk Batman: Assault on Arkham and why one third of us hates it. We finally get around to talking about the Star Trek TOS episode Charlie X and Bubs recounts his latest trip across the border to see a heavy metal legend. We cap it off with some nice trivia and put a bow on another great episode.
We've left Bubs behind this time so Schweitzer and Recker can talk some comics. We discuss some new including a not-so-welcome romance in Batman: The Killing Joke as well as a remake of The Rocketeer. We discuss the Wonder Woman and Justice League trailers from Comic-Con as well as the current runs of Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman and more.
If there's one type of movies that EVERYBODY loves, it's video game movies. Does Warcraft fall into the same pit that Uwe Boll has been stuck in since 2002? Find out when we review the latest blockbuster this summer. We also have some news to talk about including yet another remake of an action franchise, starring a veteran action actor and how the boxoffice fared this weekend. Then we spin the wheel of Trek to find an episode to watch next week before talking about DC's first couple weeks after being reborn. Then to close out the show we take a few trivia quizzes online from Sporcle.com. Turn up your air conditioner and turn up The Basement Vagrants Podcast.
We're back to review another movie that's failing in theaters! No, not Xmen Apocalypse, we're talking about The Nice Guys starring Gladiator and Drive. Dubya joins us yet again to discuss early summer's big comedy and leave right in the middle of the show. Thanks pal! We also talk Rock on the Range and all the amazing (and not so amazing) bands that showed up. Plus Recker reviews some of his favorite movies on Bluray and we play a brand new trivia game. If you miss this episode, it sure wouldn't be... NICE... fuck my life...
We just couldn't wait until the next episode to bring you come comic book discussion. Schweitzer and Recker present this mini-episode where we talk about two of the more controversial comics of the day: DC Universe Rebirth and Steve Rogers Captain America #1. We discuss the issues, their futures and why people are so upset. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page or on Twitter (@vagrantspodcast). Thanks for listening!
Will a civil war be started on the Basement Vagrants Podcast? Find out which one of us didn't like the new Captain America movie was much as the rest. We review Marvel's latest plan for complete financial control of the world as well as our Mexican Movie Standoff films from last week (well, most of them). Recker and Schweitzer also talk about the final issue of the Batman/TMNT comic crossover and where DC goes from here. We also listen to some kickass music and play a whole new trivia game. We're 3/4 away from the big 100 where we're probably not going to do anything special because it's just an arbitrary number, but hurrah nonetheless. We hope you enjoy it!
We're about halfway through the James Bond movies and thing are getting silly. We talk about 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun, the only Bond movie with an odd number of nipples. Schweitzer regales us with stories from the Calgary Expo and tells us which celebrities he met and which ones now have restraining orders against him. We also discuss why the Batman: The Killing Joke trailer is just a tad disappointing, why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is better than we ever thought it would be and what other Marvel movie was a surprise hit for us recently. Be sure to stick around for trivia as we praise our God once more by playing the Leonard Maltin Movie Game. Oh, and Mexican Movie Standoff as well. It's a jam packed episode that you wont want to miss.
