It's a Reboot to a Reboot That's Also A Sequel to Another Movie (Kill Me)


Welcome back! Sorry for the delay -- there have been a multitude of weird, inexplicable, possibly curse-related injuries and illnesses plaguing the staff lately -- but we hope to make it up to you today with a pretty good show.

In Part I, Scott and Jeff chat about a couple of fun geeky things, and a whole lot of death. Then Jeff Holland, Man-Baby Hunter, paddles upstream against the tears of male Doctor Who fans who are squeamish because the incoming lady time lord might find a new, off-label use for the Sonic Screwdriver, and it could totally void the warranty! Don't you even care?

Then it's time for the Unknown Movie Challenge, where the whole New Movie Crew goes back to high school for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Please join us for this rockin' sock hop, and visit the refreshment table for punch, Skittles, Clearasil, and self-loathing.



(Here's a link to the trailer for Darkest Hour that Jeff was raving about during one of his raves)

Dear Spike And Cronenberg: We're Sorry

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 10: Sickies!

You may have thought Jeff and Scott were abducted by aliens but the truth is much worse. There is tragedy, there is pain, there is discussion that bounces all over the pop culture landscape, including thoughts on Wonder Woman, Marvel vs. DC, MST3K old and new, House of Cards, the Black Panther trailer and most importantly, their mutual love of the classic Universal monster films and Jeff's total hatred of The Mummy.

Alien Meets Charlie Chan!



Season 2, Episode 9

Scott and Jeff engage in a spirited debate about ALIEN: COVENANT - Is it the best thing since sliced bread? Or the worst thing since loose wheat excreted by a Tribble?

For the Unknown Movie Challenge, we pull back the shoji screen to reveal a shocking ménage à trois of stereotypes as three Fake Asian (or "Fasian") detectives of the 1930s compete for the title of Miss Most Racist! Join Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto, Mr. Wong, and Special Guest Star the Xenomorph.

{Note: Thanks to slight technical difficulties, the episode ends rather abruptly, with a Newsies joke. Our apologies to Mr. Wong, who gets short shrift.]

Guardians of the Sleepy Hollow

Season 2, Episode 8

Scott arrives late! Jeff leaves early! There's a game show, a funeral, and a lengthy arbitration process governing who gets screenplay credit for Elektra (2005). In other words, it's the Confuse-A-Cat edition of The Slumgullion this week, as we mourn the passing of Sleepy Hollow, dead at the age of four. But the show gets a deservedly stylish send-off as we chat with M. Raven Metzner (the "M" stands for "Mysterious" we've decided, since he never did tell us what it actually means), co-executive producer, and writer of the season (and series) finale, "Freedom".

Then the New Movie Crew arrives to review Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 by playing "What's My Line?"

It'll make sense when you hear it.

(In the spirit of making sense, we should mention that the interview was conducted before Sleepy Hollow's cancellation was announced, so you're spared our joint crying jag.)

Jeff and Mary pull out their hankies and wave a tearful farewell to the TV series Bones! (I don't know, but they seem to care...)

How Do You Role Play "Silent Running"?

Season 2, Episode 6


In a very special edition of The Slumgullion, Jeff and Scott are joined by Sleepy Hollow Executive Producer/Showrunner Albert Kim. They talk about the show in general, last week's episode in particular, and tonight's finale in vague, teasing terms. They also talk a surprising amount about 70's sci fi.

NOTE: Massive Special Thanks to Christina Gorski at Fox PR. This would not have happened without her, and it is appreciated.

In Season 2, Episode 5, Jeff and Scott are joined by the New Movie Crew (John Szura, Blanche Ramirez and Indy McDaniel) for an in depth, spoiler-filled analysis of Logan. Mary Clevenger joins Jeff for their continuing Socratic dialogue about Bones. Plus! A super special fudgey crunchy chocolatey coco chat at the end.

Anyone Can Be Gene Shalit

It's an Unknown Movie Challenge special!

In a heaping helping of happiness, Jeff and Scott break schedule intentionally with a special minisode. 

Jeff has seen Beauty and the Beast, Scott has seen the musical Finding Neverland, and both of them have seen Get Out

(Hint:  the one with the probable smallest budget is the best.)

I Went Straight For Ten Minutes!

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 4. Jeff returns! To scream at Scott! First, Jeff and Mary catch up on the last few episodes of Bones; then Scott and Jeff are joined by suave Brit Dave Probert, of the Twice as Bright, Half as Long podcast, to chat briefly about Logan, the new Twin Peaks, 50 Shades Darker, and Erich von Stroheim as The Batman. Scott reports from the premiere of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 pilot, then Dave brings us the Trojan Horse-like gift of A Pound of Flesh, a 2015 movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme's naked, naked ass.


P.S. Here's a link to the piece Scott wrote about the Lou Ferrigno Hercules movie mentioned on the show.

Now For Something Not All That Different

Hey, Slumgullibles. Indy McDaniel -- friend o' the Show, frequent guest, and author of the Nadya's Nights series (new volume coming soon) -- has started a YouTube channel with his lovely wife Brittany called Random Viewings, and as with The Slumgullion, the title is pure Truth in Advertising.

"It's random people watching random things and then talking about em," Indy told us. "Movies, TV shows, whatever. If we can watch it, we're gonna talk about it." And there's nothing you can do to stop them!

So, anyway, you should check it-- 

"Softcore porn..." Indy whispered. "Not so softcore porn..."

Well...Okay, then. Click the link above and-- 

"Seriously," he continued. "We're gonna watch everything."

Okay, now it's just a threat. But I'd recommend giving it a look, if only because forewarned is forearmed.

"Remember After The Licking Scene...?"

Starring Scott Clevenger, Jeff Holland, and Mary Clevenger. With Special Guest Hank Parmer

What starts out as white-hot hatred for Francis Ford Coppola somehow turns into a spoiler filled, non-spoiler review of the new M. Night Shyamalan film, Split.

After Jeff and Mrs. C discuss their bi-weekly Boner, Scott and Jeff and joined by World O' Crap writer Hank Parmer for an in depth analysis of the metaphorical cannibal western horror comedy Ravenous, featuring performances that range from the inexcusable to the tripolar (and one that's actually good)

Things To Come

As promised and/or threatened in the Year End Special, we'll be posting a schedule of films for the Unknown Movie Challenge, so you may, if you're so inclined, bone up before the podcast. You can also go all multimedia on our asses and send in your own thoughts on the subject film. MP3s received before Thursday, January 12 will be played on this weekend's show. Emails will be read on the following episode. Send your musings, mullings, low comedy and high dudgeon to: theslumgullion@aol.com.

This week's UMC will be a twofer of hubris and homosexual subtext on the Leopold and Loeb killings -- Alfred Hitchcock's ROPE, with Jimmy Stewart and Farley Granger, and 1959's COMPULSION, with Dean Stockwell and Orson Welles.

A more comprehensive list of upcoming films will be posted as soon as Jeff recovers from his kidnapping and transportation across state lines for immoral purposes.
