Get your ass to Mars! The Film Pigs are back with a new alternate commentary for the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic TOTAL RECALL! Given the super-dull remake, this exercise in 90s over-the-topness is a breath of fresh air (Cohaagen!). And by “air” we mean a preposterous storyline, ludicrous blood-squib violence, a truly impressive amount of scene-ending quips, and the smoldering rage of Canada’s own negative emotion repository Michael Ironside. Open your miiiiiiinnnnd!
TO SYNC WITH MOVIE: start this commentary 10 seconds after starting movie (chapter 1 for DVD/BD).
Once more, unto The Bacon, dear friends! Still flying in missing Pig formation, this episode of the Film Pigs Podcast focuses on Todd Robert Anderson’s terrible mental illness: his obsession with collecting DVDs and Blu-rays. Sequestered in a room lined with shelves of plastic discs, Skelton pulls 12 random movies and demands Todd explain himself before it’s too late. It’s kind of like Intervention, but very lazy and nothing is really accomplished.
We’re back! Better late than never! Unless you hate us, in which case this is terrible news! This time, we’re talking “gags”, or gory special effects. You know, the real gross stuff that gives you that quality nausea you can’t get from computer generated barf. Plus, the latest useless movie news, a movie jail trial with a surprise twist ending, a bizarre line reading, a trivia game that is actually a honest-to-God trivia game and not some stupid nonsense made up by Skelton, and more!
For thirteen glorious uncut minutes the Pigs discuss the latest Ridley Scott picture as well as Men In Black III, Battleship, and Rock of Ages. There are important lessons here, you guys. This isn’t just a bunch of guys on a porch discussing movies. It’s a bunch of guys on a porch discussing movies AND drinking beers. (Pro tip: watch out for water snakes with vagina heads…they’re really mean.)
Poor Tonn Slingdog showed up to do his usual DTV Corner segment, but found out he was alone. No Pigs showed. In an attempt to respect the podcast’s listeners in a way the usual hosts clearly do not, Tonn yammers for nearly half an hour about some horror movies featuring killer animals he vaguely remembers. Rambling and without a real point, at least this Pigs Podcast is…well, here.
The Film Pigs are back and we’re talking zombies! Slow zombies, fast zombies, angry zombies, blasé zombies, and even a few things that may or may not be zombies. And, yes, it’s impossible to talk about zombie movies without eventually discussing The Walking Dead, so add TV zombies in there as well. Plus, more of the stuff you love (or hate, we really don’t know): Movie News, Movie Jail, The Nic Cage Memorial Bizarre Line Reading, a Cold Reading, a rousing game of What’s Your Opinion?!, and – somehow, impossibly – not a single Cranberries joke.
