Jealousy-fueled rants, opinions presented as fact, and biased half-truths about the movies.

Podcast #105: The Bacon – Meandering Nonsense & Jackasses Who Say Stupid Things

Summer’s end can only mean one thing: a lazy Bacon podcast from the Film Pigs! With Falk still missing-in-action due to gainful employment and adult responsibilities, Todd and Skelton are left to their own devices. Which basically involves complaining about Die Hard ripoff movies and how mostly male celebrities can’t seem to stop saying stupid things. Music by Adam Blau.

Podcast #104: The Bacon – Recent Disappointments in the Movies

As the summer nears its end, the Film Pigs take a look at a few of this year’s movie disappointments. But not before screwing around a lot – this is an episode of The Bacon, after all. One topic not covered but is extremely important: Todd got a DVD copy of COOL RUNNINGS at a garage sale.

Podcast #103: The Bacon – Moviegoing Experience 2018

It’s so hot this summer that the Pigs are spending more time in cool, comfortable air conditioned movie theaters watching The Rock jump into burning buildings and Jason Statham fight ridiculously giant sharks! So, it’s a perfect time to talk about the state of the moviegoing experience in 2018! How can theaters compete with streaming services and giant UHD home theater TVs? What does this mean for the future of the classic movie theater? Why do the Pigs assume it will involve orgies? All these questions, and more, in this episode!

Podcast #102: The Bacon – Cold Reading Challenge

The Pigs of Summer are back with a brand-new podcast! Sure, it’s a Bacon episode since Falk is consumed with creating the Golden Age of Television, but remaining Pigs Todd and Skelton are not currently gainfully employed so why not do a podcast! This episode, the Pigs talk a bit about everyone’s favorite unclear-business-plan business, MoviePass. Then it’s on to a Cold Reading Challenge, the rules of which Skelton gets completely wrong because he wasn’t listening to Todd when they were explained. There is also a very unfair rating system employed by Todd.

Podcast #101: Shark Movies

Spring is in the air and the Film Pigs are in the studio for a brand-new podcast! And it’s a full-on regular episode featuring all three Pigs talking Shark Movies! But we don’t just cover the rise of the Shark-centric movie since the 70s, we also cover the latest movie news, conduct important legal proceedings, get a visit from Todd’s cousin Tonn, play a lightning fast game, and so much more!

Podcast #100: The Bacon – The Women of Payback

It’s our 100th podcast! And what better way to celebrate than with a Bacon episode since our regular podcast schedule fell through! We KNEW you’d love that idea! This time, Todd and Skelton are talking about the women of Payback, a sequel of sorts to our last episode about The Rock (which we recorded before his weird Saudi meeting). This time, we take a look at the careers of Maria Bello, Deborah Kara Unger, and Lucy Liu – mostly wondering why there aren’t three separate action franchises starring each of them. There’s thrills! There’s chills! There’s an extended period where Skelton can’t remember the name of the actor Alan Cumming! This episode has everything, people!
