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

Podcast #92: The Bacon – Rad Daly on “10”

The follow up to our commentary on “10”, this edition of The Film Pigs Podcast is a Bacon episode focusing on Rad Daly, who played Dudley Moore’s son in the 1979 film. Todd and Skelton quiz Rad on life as a child star of the 70s and 80s and get more than they bargained for. In under 30 minutes we learn about Rad’s life in Hollywood during the 80s: how he hung out with the Brat Pack, avoided drugs and alcohol, (mostly Todd’s) advice for aspiring actors, and so much more.

Be sure to check out our commentary on “10” for more of Rad’s memories of working on the movie and Todd’s sheer excitement at recognizing that guy from “Weekend at Bernie’s”.

Podcast #91: The Bacon – Stephen King Movies

You didn’t ask for it and you got it: an episode of The Bacon! With fellow Film Pig Stephen Falk off at his real job making critically acclaimed, high quality television, Todd and Skelton are left on their own, drinking afternoon Scotch and yelling into a microphone. This time, they’re talking about the movies of Stephen King – the good, the bad, and the REALLY bad.

Podcast #90: Movie Viewing Tier Systems

Nothing says springtime like a Film Pigs podcast! This episode, the Pigs are talking Movie Viewing Tier Systems, or how do you decide what to see in theaters and what to watch at home? Plus, the latest and greatest movie news, an in-depth prosecution for movie jail, a bizarre line reading so short you’ll miss it if you pause to open your beer, and a challenging game that irritates everyone but Todd for once. (And there’s no problem with the recording, Falk’s just typing on his keyboard – he likes to write Grey’s Anatomy fan fiction when we record the show.)

Podcast #89: Sea Monsters!

April showers bring May flowers, and also cause sea levels to rise which is why this podcast we’re talking sea monsters! This episode also marks the return of a beloved segment that’s been missing-in-action for a while. Plus, your usual carefully-sourced movie news, courtroom drama, bizarre line readings, and a game that tries to take it easy for once by not making the players improvise but Todd finds a way to complain about it anyway so he ruins it which has also caused this run-on sentence so that’s Todd’s fault, too.

Podcast #88: Cinematic Universe Writers Rooms

The Film Pigs are back, well before the end of March, with a brand-new episode! This time we’re talking Cinematic Universe Writers Rooms and what that means for the endless amount of comic book/screeching robot/paramilitary toy/classic monster movies that are in our future. Plus, the latest movie news, a surprising twist in the courtroom, a reluctant game that TOTALLY SCREWS OVER ONE OF THE PLAYERS, and more!

Podcast #87: Bill Paxton

It’s March, which can only mean one thing: it’s time for the February Film Pigs podcast! This one’s bittersweet, as the Pigs discuss the late, great Bill Paxton and what his iconic roles have meant to us. Plus, the usual nonsense, including news, games, line readings, and a surprise Movie Jail twist!
