Do you remember the first time you saw a Muppets film? Brothers, Chris and Jordan McLeod relive every Muppet moment. Conversations range from silly to heartfelt. They talk about their first experiences and memories around seeing each film for the first time, and then they take a deep dive into each classic moment. Of course some films are better than others, and brothers rarely agree on everything.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss The Great Muppet Caper. A jewel heist is afoot in London.

An increased focus on narrative does the movie no favor…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the original Day of the Dead. Soldiers are dispatched to protect scientists trying to find a way to stop the zombie pandemic.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the original Dawn of the Dead. Zombies attack a shopping mall. A larger color follow-up to Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead is a more satirical picture. It's also more of an action movie than the original. Filled with unique zombie kills, intense moments, and a fine score by Th…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Cranston Manor. A wealthy man is dead and the treasures in his titular manor are yours for the taking. Originally a text adventure by Larry Ledden, this is a remake with graphics done by Harold DeWitz and Ken Williams. On-Line Systems' most accomplished adventure game to date, this has a simple story,…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss The Muppet Movie. The Muppets travel to Hollywood. The first of many Muppet movies, The Muppet Movie is an origin story with more celebrity cameos than you can shake a stick at.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the original black and white Night of the Living Dead. Zombies attack Ben (Duane Jones), Barbra (Judith O'Dea), and the rest of the gang in an isolated farmhouse. Directed by horror stalwart George A. Romero, Night of the Living Dead combines social satire, quarantine horror, and gross-o…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Blockbuster Video. Video rental stores were a core experience of becoming movie and video game fans in our youth. We discuss late fees and wasting hours browsing walls to pick a movie or game "based on its cover". Mat regales the crew with what it was liking working for Blockbuster Video…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and UK fan of the show Stephen Jones discuss Men in Black 3. Agent J (Will Smith) has to travel back in time to 1969 to prevent Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) from assassinating a young Agent K (Josh Brolin). Etan Coen's smart screenplay for Men in Black 3 elevates the material for a movie that's better tha…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Men in Black 2. Flipping the original film's concept, Agent J (Will Smith) has to bring Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) out of retirement to battle Serleena (Laura Flynn Boyle) and Scrad (Johnny Knoxville). Special effects are an improvement over the original, but the main thrust of the story takes ages to …
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Leroy & Stitch. Leroy & Stitch is notable for its focus on action. A wrap-up of sorts for the animated series, this flick has some returning villains and introduces Leroy, a version of Stitch that's all evil and all red. A finale in a stadium featuring the numerous experiments leading up…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch. A lower key tale than the prior entry, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch retreads the plot of the first film to some degree. Stitch's good and evil balance is out of wack. Stitch feels guilt and anxiety over this, and wants to leave Earth before h…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Men in Black. Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) recruits Agent J (Will Smith) to battle the dangerous alien Bug (Vincent D'Onofrio). Loosely based on a short-lived comic book series from Aircel Comics, Men in Black combines humor, science-fiction, and a bit of horror into slick summer entertainment. Part of w…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander: The Source. Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) searches for the source of immortality. Meant to be the start of a new trilogy, Highlander: The Source feels like it was shot in a basement with awful special effects to boot. An embarrassment to the franchise, Highlander: The Source has little to r…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander: Endgame. Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) team up to battle Jacob Kell (Bruce Payne). A follow-up to the long-running TV show, Highlander: Endgame has a smaller scope than the sequels up to this point. Locales are often drab, although there are some fun…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and special guest Brock Wilbur (co-author of Postal from Boss Fight Books) discuss Mission Asteroid, the third adventure game released by Sierra under their original name On-Line Systems. Meant to be a shorter and cheaper adventure game aimed at new players, Mission Asteroid has a science-fiction theme.…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander III: The Final Dimension. Outside of the US, this was released as Highlander III: The Sorcerer. Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) finds Kane (Mario Van Peebles), another evil Immortal itching to have a sword fight. A sort of remake of the original, Highlander III sends Connor back to New…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Stitch! The Movie. Stitch struggles with his inner evil nature as Lilo tries to bolster his goodness.

The villain Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel (Jeff Benn…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Wizard and the Princess. Adding color to the graphics that made Mystery House a smash, Wizard and the Princess is a worse game. Long mazes clutter up the flow, puzzles are more obtuse, and the ending is not worth the journey. Its focus on variants of fairy tale tropes is a preview of the event…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander 2: The Quickening. Another immortal from Connor's past returns to instigate sword fights. An odd Highlander entry with a zillion different cuts, Highlander 2: The Quickening leans harder on the science-fiction angle with an overt ecological message to boot. Director Russell Mulcahy returns …
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Lilo & Stitch. An alien crash lands in on Kaua'i, Hawaii. Chaos ensues as intergalactic bounty hunters attempt to retrieve it.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Lethal Weapon 4. Riggs and Murtaugh battle the Chinese Triad. More humorous than Lethal Weapon 3, Lethal Weapon 4 has a secret weapon with Chris Rock as the potential son-in-law of Murtaugh's daughter. It takes quite a bit for the story to get rolling. Jet Li brings a real dynamism to the fights. Ther…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Lethal Weapon 3. Riggs and Murtaugh investigate crooked cops. Lethal Weapon 3 is a bit tired. Danny Glover gets better character work here and Rene Russo is fun as a love interest for Mel Gibson, but it feels like everyone but Glover is going through the motions. Joe Pesci's frosted hair looks awful. …
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Lethal Weapon 2. Riggs and Murtaugh go up against South African drug smugglers.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Final Episode, the final film in the original Battles Without Honor and Humanity series.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Lethal Weapon. An old cop and a loose cannon cop team up. The start of a franchise, Lethal Weapon is more character focused than other action franchises like Die Hard or Rambo.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Police Tactics, the fourth film in the Battles Without Honor and Humanity series.

You start to get the feeling the yakuza are on the run. T…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, and Thrasher, discuss Aladdin and the King of Thieves. Thieves try to get Aladdin to be one of their team. Going for a heavier story this time, Aladdin and the King of Thieves focuses on a lot of unresolved Daddy issues. The songs are worse, but the voice acting is more interesting. Robin Williams is back as the Genie, a…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and Sarah discuss The Return of Jafar. Jafar comes back to battle Aladdin. Although the animation isn't nearly as slick as the first, things move at a fun pace. Robin Williams did not reprise his part as the Genie, so instead we have Dan Castellaneta subbing in; Castellaneta would later voice the …
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, BJ, and special guest Lindsey (freelance artist) discuss the animated feature film Aladdin. A genie causes a lot of property damage. Based on the most famous tale from One Thousand and One Nights, Aladdin features a zippy comedic score with jokes to match. Robin Williams as the Genie is the obvious standout, bu…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Proxy War, the fourth film in the Battles Without Honor and Humanity series. Violence between yakuza gangs continues with great relish.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and special guests Jane Jensen (Writer/Designer of the Gabriel Knight Trilogy) + Tyler Smith (Host of Battleship Pretension) discuss the Gabriel Knight trilogy of computer games.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and special guest Mladen Luketin (Host of the Extra Sequential Podcast) discuss Jurassic Park III. Dinosaur piss proves useful. A movie full of toyetic dinos, Jurassic Park III drops all pretension from The Lost World: Jurassic Park and takes audiences on a ride that's not too shabby. The premise for this movie…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and special guest Mladen Luketin (Host of the Extra Sequential Podcast) discuss The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and BJ discuss Jurassic Park. Dinosaurs in a theme park go haywire.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, Jersey Jason, and Russell Jung discuss Home Alone 3. A young child maims robbers in the midst of a spy imbroglio. An odd attempt to reboot the franchise, Home Alone 3 feels more like a lame James Bond spoof than an entry in this series. Violence against the baddies is softened somewhat, but calling this long in…
 
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the Hiroshima Death Match, the second film in the original five-film Yakuza Papers cycle. A man from the streets joins a yakuza gang as an assassin, but a doomed romance muddies the water.
