Episode 163: St. Patty’s Day Special | LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD

lep_in_the_hood_bbr.png

It's another St. Patrick's Day and that means another Blood and Black Rum Podcast episode on the Leprechaun series. This time we're up to Leprechaun 5: Leprechaun in the Hood. Ryne was sort of dreading this episode having seen the film before, and we actually struggle with what to talk about about this truly bad movie. However, we do manage to conjure up an hour of discussion about the song "Lep in the Hood," the blaxploitation references, Ice-T doing what Ice-T does best, and more!

We're also drinking Goose Island's Lost Palate IPA on this show.

Episode 162: PARASITE

PARASITE_bbr.png

We've been talking about doing this episode and we finally got to it - Parasite, the Best Picture winner from director/writer Bong Joon-Ho about rich and poor, upper and lower class, and everything in between. This is a complex film from its story to cinematography, and we try to break down our favorite elements from it as much as possible. There's a lot to dissect, so it's best to watch the film and then listen to our show right after.

Episode 161: Valentine’s Day Special | VALENTINE

valentine_bbr.png

We wanted to make sure we tackled Valentine's Day with a special episode, and since we've already done My Bloody Valentine we decided the next best thing is 2001's Valentine, a slasher film that utilizes the classic holiday themes of '80s horror films with a lot of homage to those movies. We talk about the killer, the gore, the red herrings, and a whole lot more in this special romantic episode of the podcast. We've also got Dogfish Head's American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA on the show!

Episode 160: CHILD’S PLAY (2019)

childs_play_2019_bbr.png

We said we'd do the 2019 Child's Play at some point after we were unable to cover it during its release due to the theater's projector issues, and here we are! Only a few months late. However, we were particularly surprised by this reimagining of Chucky the killer doll, who is transformed into an uncanny valley-style smartbot rather than a voodoo serial killer. While we admit the themes are sort of on-the-nose, this Child's Play is decidedly entertaining and, for the most part, just a lot of fun.

We're also drinking Stillwater Artisanal's Shoegaze farmhouse-style pale ale!

Episode 159: MARRIAGE STORY

marriage_story_bbr.png

We're going in a bit of a different direction with this episode. Instead of tackling gruesome horror, we're dealing with sobering real-life tension with the melancholy and overtly realistic divorce tale Marriage Story. We were thrilled by this Noah Baumbach drama, especially with Adam Driver's performance. We talk about the overall themes of the film, how it relates to Baumbach's similar previous film The Squid and the Whale, and a whole lot more.

Episode 158: THE FLY (1958)

We're back! It's 2020 and we finally have a new episode. Yes, we had to skip Black Christmas 2019 but we decided to go a bit farther back in time to 1958 to cover the original The Fly starring Vincent Price, Patricia Owens, and David Hedison. We talk about the shocks and surprises of this grisly classic, Price as the straight man, the interesting red herring murder mystery, and more! We also have Rogue's Santa's Private Reserve 2019 (a dark ale with candy cap mushrooms) which we were going to do for Christmas before Ryne had twins and couldn't do any more episodes! Thanks for being with us in the new year.

Episode 157: Festivus Series | SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 5: THE TOY MAKER

sndn5_bbr.png

Our Festivus Series carries on and we technically finish off the Silent Night, Deadly Night franchise with our episode on Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker! This DTV horror film from 1991 has only a tenuous connection to the series but it does at least have a crazed Santa and a bunch of killer toys in very '90s fashion. We're not super stoked on the film but it does have a few good elements to it. We talk about everything from the insane car explosion to Mickey Rooney!

Episode 156: Festivus Series | GREMLINS

gremlins_bbr.png

On our second Festivus episode of Christmas 2019, we're talking Joe Dante's excellent GREMLINS - they're cute and cuddly until they're not! We discuss the Spielberg influence on this film, the puppeteering effects, the other small creature films that came out in the '80s, and more! Sorry for Ryne's echo mic - we had some issues with the mic this episode, all fixed now though.

Also, we're drinking the Goose Island Bourbon County Cafe de Olla stout! Listen in because it cost us $25. Tip us some beer money on Patreon.

Episode 155: Festivus Series | THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE

santa_clause_3_bbr.png

It's that time of year again! We kick off our third annual Festivus Series by returning and finishing a film franchise we started a while ago: The Santa Clause. This time we torture ourselves with The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause starring Martin Short as Jack Frost. The whole thing is a cartoony festival of the worst elements of the Santa Clause sequels, from the over-the-top set designs to the in-your-face soundtracks. We go through everything that makes The Santa Clause 3 a travesty of a sequel that ends this trilogy. Also, we have Ommegang's Neon Rainbows IPA on the show.

Episode 154: Thanksgiving Special | PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

bbr_planes_trains.png

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our US listeners! If you're Canadian, you've already had yours. For this special festivity we're tackling the OTHER John Hughes film for Thanksgiving that we haven't done yet, Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Now both of us love this movie and instead of a normal critical review of the film, we're going to be talking about our favorite scenes and the things that Hughes gets right. We'll also offer up our own insight into what we think could have worked better, but for the most part this is an ode to the movie, with us doing poor renditions of funny stuff from the film. Hope you enjoy!
