Hey, you know what? There's a female superhero in Captain Marvel and it totally didn't ruin our viewing experience. Brie Larson's newest addition to the MCU is a pretty enjoyable film, there's no getting around that; but it does feature some of the same flaws that have cropped up in just about every new Marvel origin story. We talk about the generic plotting, the '90s setting, Samuel L. Jackson giving a cat some pets, Jude Law being Jude Law, and more! And if you're one of those people that decided to post a bad Rotten Tomatoes review before you saw the film, shame on you - and email us at bloodandblackrumpodcast@gmail.com to tell us why you so angry.

You know, we do this every year. We know St. Patrick's Day is coming up, so we get excited to celebrate and we do a Leprechaun film and then we get disappointed that it's terrible. It's a cyclical thing, and Leprechaun 4: In Space is no different, not that we had high expectations anyway. This film is downright atrocious and a surprise considering Brian Trenchard-Smith directs this follow-up to his film set in Las Vegas. This time nothing makes sense, Leprechaun's limericks have been eliminated, and there's very little resemblance to an actual Leprechaun movie. But Warwick Davis apparently needed that money!

Episode 130: HAPPY DEATH DAY

bbr_happy_death_day.png

We know that Happy Death Day 2U is already out and in theaters, but what's the point in seeing the sequel if you haven't covered the first one? That's why we're talking about 2017's Happy Death Day, a happy surprise from Blumhouse that adopts Groundhog's Day into a slasher film that emphasizes both wit and horror. While there are some differing opinions from our podcasters in this episode, both of them did enjoy the movie for the most part and talk about Jessica Rothe's bitchy character, the humor, the PG-13 kills, and a lot more.

Episode 129: SUSPIRIA (2018)

bbr_suspiria_2018.png

It took us a long time to be able to do this episode, since Suspiria never got released to theaters near us, but we've finally watched all 150 minutes of this epic from Luca Guadagnino. Both of us enjoyed it for what it is, and on the show we talk about similarities and differences between this and Argento's classic, some of the flaws of trying to stuff historical context into an already crammed plot, and the occasional foray into Guadagnino's bloated ideas. But we're also big fans of some of the creepy horror and discomfort of the film, and we get to that as well.

Episode 128: GOD’S GUN

bbr_god_s_gun.png

We said we were doing a spaghetti western, but we didn't say it would be an Israel spaghetti western! We're tackling the fairly obscure Lee Van Cleef vehicle God's Gun, released in 1976 at the end of the spaghetti western craze. We're talking Van Cleef's ridiculous hair, the genericness of this revenge film, the tonedeaf premise of the whole thing, Jack Palance's perverted grandpa facial expressions, and more! If you've never seen this film, you can catch it on YouTube in potato quality here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZs5Kek83p0

Episode 127: AQUAMAN

bbr_aquaman.png

We're finally back and so is the DC Extended Universe with Aquaman! James Wan's long-awaited entry in the superhero series sees Jason Momoa and Amber Heard fighting against a bleach-blonde Patrick Wilson for the rule of Atlantis. We talk about the CGI (so much CGI!), Amber Heard's red hair (yes please), Momoa's stilted acting, the unnecessary inclusion of Black Manta, and a lot more in this overstuffed episode matching Aquaman's overstuffed plot.

bbr_lethal_weapon.png

Our last (?) episode of this year's Festivus series tackles what is perhaps the most Christmas-y film of all: Lethal Weapon! I'm just kidding about that, but on this episode we truly ponder what makes Die Hard so much more popular than Lethal Weapon as a Christmas action film. Also, we talk about Danny Glover being not that old in this film despite his famous line, the amazing Mel Gibson mullet, fire hydrant water brawls, and more.

Festivus rolls on with a look at the sequel to one of the best Christmas classics, The Santa Clause. Here, many years later, Tim Allen tries to rekindle the magic of his Scott Calvin/Santa Claus character by giving him yet another clause in the contract - he needs to find a wife by Christmas day, 8 years after he becomes Santa? We talk about the logistics of the entire film's logic, Bernard being a chump, the plastic Santa sucking, and Elizabeth Mitchell looking hot!

bbr_sndn4.png

Continuing our 2018 Christmas celebration, we tackle the somewhat deep cut Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation. This Brian Yuzna-directed film really has no bearing on the previous SNDN films, and it lacks a lot of Christmas cheer too. What it does have, though, are bugs, Clint Howard, and more bugs. It's a weird film, but we cover the hilarity of spontaneous combustion, talk about the film's Bond girl, and discuss the "war on Christmas." Hopefully it doesn't make your skin crawl.

bbr_jingle_all_the_way.png

We're starting the Christmas season just a little bit early this year to get in all the films we want to do for the Festivus Series part 2. The first up on our list: Jingle All the Way, the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle that espouses the great holiday theme that you can save your marriage and be a great parent as long as you get your kid the Christmas gift they are begging for. We talk about Arnold and Sinbad's crimes in this film, the dated '90s references, Santa with nunchaku, and more!
