Episode 62: John Wick meets The Mummy


Jeff, Scott, and Mary talk about the best movies to watch while you quietly weep and eat ice cream on the couch in your sweatpants, and Mary explains that no, they're wrong, because 1999's The Mummy is the greatest comfort film every made. Then the New Movie Crew checks into The Continental to discuss why John Wick 3 is basically the James Brolin TV series Hotel, except everyone's a murderer.

Oh, and Benevolent and Protective Order of Belarussian Assassins has the worst ticketing system since Delta Airlines.

Episode 60: US Meets CAPTAIN MARVEL

Jeff and Scott chat about the peculiar way the new Joker trailer made them feel, then they debate the merits and demerits of Jordan Peele's Us and ultimately decide it's the best Easter Bunny movie since the Rankin-Bass holiday classic Here Comes Peter Cottontail.

Jeff remembers his mom's love of horror movies, while Scott recalls his Dickensian childhood reading crappy screenplays in a Victorian blacking factory, then they join hands and keep the lagomorph theme alive by plunging down a bottomless rabbit hole as they celebrate the joys and sorrows of dallying at the dollar theater. Finally, the entire New Movie Crew triumphantly returns to talk Captain Marvel, with many helpful tips on the care and feeding of Flerken.

Now put on your anti-alien cat eye protection and let's hit PLAY!

Episode 59: Harlequin (1980)


Jim Donahue, writer for the Daily Grindhouse joins Scott and Jeff for an all Unknown Movie Challenge show. This time, it's the 1980 Australian oddity Harlequin (AKA Dark Forces), starring Jesus of Nazareth as Rasputin, and David Hemmings from Blow-Up as a British dude pretending to be an Australian dude pretending to be an American confused about his nationality. Basically, it's Tropic Thunder gadding about in David Bowie's old Ziggy Stardust costume.

Maids melt, birds die, clowns float. You will never be the same...

Slumgullion Episode 57: Old Dark Glass Houses


Scott and Jeff try to agree about Star Trek Discovery but keep getting distracted, then agree to disagree about Glass, which made Scott extremely grumpy.

Have a potato.
