Slumgullion Episode 56: Third Annual Year Ender

Jeff and Scott look back at 2018 and find that it's kind of like a monster in your dreams: no matter how slowly it lumbers, or how fast you run, it just keeps gaining on you.

Mike & Ike Meet Barry Bostwick

And here's the best unwrapped non-present you won't find under your tree this year--a look back at a high point of the old ASSJAM podcast. Yes, it's the Boy's justly famous interview with Barry Bostwick, in an episode that's entitled "Fork Scorpion" for reasons that will immediately become apparent (I'm lying).

As Ike himself remembers: "One of the reasons Barry Bostwick is one of the coolest people on the planet is that he got Mike and Ike immediately, who they are, what they are; and he played with us. He said afterwards it was the most fun he'd ever had being interviewed.

We got that a lot."

Mike & Ike: The Return

Immortal alien stoners/movie critics/song stylists Mike & Ike return to earth because everybody is fighting, and teach us all the True Meaning of Christmas by picking more fights. With everybody.

The Dead Talk Back: Mike & Ike Report Live From 1931

As we count down to our Christmas Day spectacle, here's a flashback to 1931, as immortal stoner film critics Mike & Ike report live from what many consider to be the greatest year for horror films ever. Spoiler: they kinda liked that German one.

Christmastime is Coming

Well, I suppose Christmas time is technically here, but it's Christmas Day when all the fireworks will be going off here, as Mike and Ike return from their long winter's nap with...Well, you'll have to just wait and see, but believe me, it'll be worth the wait.

Meanwhile, my brother Miles put together this dreamy, Island-flavored take on A Charlie Brown Christmas, so pour yourself a Mai Tai and enjoy a tropical yuletide.

It Came Upon a Midnight Weird

We've managed to obtain -- don't ask how, let's just say we've done things we're not proud of -- a teaser trailer for the Super Secret Xmas Spectacular, debuting right here on Christmas Day.

And I don't want to spoil anything, but...

The Boys are back in town.

To Doctor Whom It May Concern

Scott and Jeff return from their Strange Interlude, and are joined by Mrs. C. for this quick mini-sode about the current season of Doctor Who. And guess what?

You'll never guess.

Okay, I'll tell you.

Scott's a little grumpy.

And here's a link to the Mike and Ike video mentioned on the show.

Slumgullion Halloween Horror Show!

Scott and Jeff see the new Halloween (2018) movie on opposite sides of the country, but they come together to completely disagree about it. Then it's Compare & Contrast Day, as they watch two different versions of the same mid-century Italian horror film. Jeff sits through the American release, Atom Age Vampire, while Scott subjects himself to the complete European cut, entitled Seddok, The Heir of Satan. They learn that sometimes more is less, but less is more confusing.

A Lobster Pinched Tom Hardy's Winky

In honor of the first woman Doctor, Jeff and Scott recruit expert woman Mary C to give the woman's point of view on womaning. Then they try to figure out why Venom sucked so bad, and why they loved it so much.

It's The Woman Who Fell to Earth versus The Parasite That Fell to Earth, so grab your headphones and your umbrella and listen to things go SPLAT!

It's Like a Lifetime TV Movie with Muff

Jeff and Scott watch The Predator and The House With a Clock in Its Walls. and try to decide if this much "meh!" is the byproduct of an industrial accident, or whether it's cooked up deliberately in mobile Meh! Labs by renegade high school chemistry teachers.

Then they tackle the Unknown Movie Challenge -- Strip Nude For Your Killer -- and are forced to turn in their Man Cards and burn their Italian bun-huggers, much like women incinerated their brassieres during the height of Second Wave Feminism.

The Happytime Murders Mini-sode

Jeff and Scott have both seen the Happytime Murders! One loves it! One hates it! Or do they? Let's find out. (Caution: The following episode contains drug references, genre-mixing with severe contra-indications, and puppet pubes. Parental Discretion is advised.)

Episode 50: Larry Blamire Returns

Grab a glass and join in, because it's our half-centennial episode and this time we've got a special guest: writer-director Larry Blamire, who sits down to talk about his new book of Western horror stories, More Tales of the Callamo Mountains, his upcoming book Great Scott! Rare Imaginary Comic Book Covers, and a multitude of other weird angles, tangents, and asides. Then it's time for the Unknown Movie Challenge, as we volley opinions about the unjustly neglected Val Guest classic Jigsaw (1962).

Episode 49: Areolas of the Undead!

Angry Star Wars fans want to remake The Last Jedi, so Jeff and Scott accommodate them by doing a dramatic reading of the Angry Fans' manifesto, then hastily remaking a bunch of classic films, using modern tropes, techniques, and technologies (Lawrence of Arabia moves a lot faster when everyone's riding around the desert in those Landmasters from Damnation Alley). Finally, it's a quick detour to Jurassic World enroute to our final destination, The Playgirls and the Vampire, a 1960 Italian import that supplied mid-Century America with it's Minimum Daily Adult Requirement of imported nipples.

Here's the trailer:

And here's the new episode. Enjoy!

Episode 48: Babylon 5, Deadpool 2, Solo 1...and Done

Jeff and Scott have come not to praise Deadpool 2 but to...Well, actually to praise it, but they get distracted by the release of Babylon 5 on Amazon Prime (which sounds like we're stuck in yet another stupid Star Trek timeline), and the Shakespeare in the Park production of Pirates of Penzance, starring Kevin Kline, Linda Rondstadt, and Rex Smith as Street Hawk!

Then it's on to the mean streets of Corellia (A Quinn Martin Production) for Solo: A Star Wars Story:

Episode 47: Avengers: Infinity War: Colon Style!

Corellian freighter jack-knifed off the 101 today, road closures to follow...*

Jeff drags Scott to a 12-Step program for people who procrastinate until their DVRs explode, while the New Movie Crew takes on Avengers: Infinity War. As with all our Marvel movie reviews, stick around for the post credits sequence.

Slumgullion Special: The Damian Maffei Interview

Jeff has been locked outside in the snow. Nevertheless, he and Scott sit down for a conversation with Jeff's old Internet pal, Damian Maffei, the "Man in the Mask" from the new horror film The Strangers: Prey at Night (check local listings for a theater near you).

Slumgullion Episode 45: Black Panther

In Part 1, Jeff and Scott grief counsel each other through their co-dependent relationships with Star Wars and Star Trek, and somehow wind up awarding a pair of breasts to Dr. McCoy. In Part II, the New Movie Crew takes on Black Panther, and the fur really flies.

And check out the bonus video below.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, and star Chadwick Boseman make a surprise appearance at the opening night screening at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. At least, it was a surprise to us.

Better Living Through Bad Movies: The Alligator People (1959)

The stars of Better Living Through Bad Movies: The Audiobook, John Szura and Blanche Ramirez, are back and giving the business to The Alligator People, that lovable 1959 sci-fi classic that perfectly captured America's Cold War fears about atomic mutations, psychoanalysis, and piano-playing reptiles.

Star Wars Rebels

Hey guys! Jeff is sorting out some personal issues, but we didn't want to leave you hanging, so here's our first bonus track: A chat between Jeff and Scott about the final season of Star Wars Rebels, which we didn't post at the time, because it was incredibly spoilery. Even for us. So you can just imagine how spoiler that is.

Piss Off, 2017!

It's our Second Annual Year End Review, and this time Jeff and Scott try to stay positive and think of three things that made them glad to be alive. How do you suppose that went?
