A year in preview for the movies of 2018. We discuss what's coming out and make predictions. Before that we play a round of Undebeatable and also talk weird dreams, Mary Roach, Lego, Star Wars comics, trades vs. Omnibus, and a lot more.
Recorded on New Years Eve, we talk residual Star Wars feelings, comic books, Game of Thrones, Dungeons & Dragons, The Shape of Water, as well as a round of undebeatable (featuring an iconic 90's movie monster and a post-apocalyptic one-armed warrior). The last half of the show is spent discussing and comparing the on-screen kill counts for several action stars. Credit to the blog All Outta Bubblegum for most of the stats we used.
In the second and last SANTACLYSM of 2017 we review two obscure Canadian animated specials. The first, A Cosmic Christmas (1977), is about 3 Magi from space and is probably one of the worst specials we've ever watched. The second, Christopher the Christmas Tree (1993), is about a really dumb tree who is both too small and too big to be a Christmas tree. It is also terrible, but the result is probably one of the funniest reviews we've done. Merry Christmas!
Dinosaur Dracula is a groovy blog that trades in nostalgia and 1980s and 90s ephemera. (Fittingly run by the guy who used to run X-Entertainment.) Recently they've been posting a ton of old Christmas commercials for toys and TV holiday specials. One of the commercials they posted yesterday just happened to be a promo for "Alf's Special Christmas", aka the worst special of Santaclysm 2015.

We do an absurdly long (and spoiler filled) in-depth discussion about Star Wars: The Last Jedi that was recorded on the weekend of the film's release. Before that we play a brief game about Christmas movies and then a long round of Undebeatable. The Last Jedi discussion starts at Minute 46.
Santaclysm returns for another year of bizarre Christmas movies. In this installment we take a look at the oft-mentioned 1967 traditionally animated Rankin/Bass classic Cricket on the Hearth.
We talk Justice League (the movie), play another round of Undebeatable (featuring and an iconic horror hero and the villain from a classic children's franchise), and then play a game of Tommy's design that is based around Rotten Tomatoes reviews. Also discussed: movies filmed in Louisville, Stranger Things, the Rampage movie, the new DuckTales, and more!
We discuss the epidemic of sexual assault that has dominated the news recently and Tommy talks of one particular case that hits a little close to home. After that we talk Star Wars, comic books (Brian Michael Bendis leaves Marvel for DC / Various writers / the 90's animated Spawn cartoon) and Josh tells the story of his brief cameo appearance on another podcast (Jay and Silent Bob Get Old). PLUS!: The first installment of our fictional fighting tournament UNDEBEATABLE.
Our triumphant (and lengthy) return! We discuss the movies that were released during our long hiatus. Logan, Kong: Skull Island, Beauty & The Beast, Power Rangers, Get Out, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Alien: Covenant, Wonder Woman, Baby Driver, Spider-Man: Homecoming, It, Mother!, Blade Runner 2049, Thor: Ragnarok, and many more!
Hey! Welcome to J.A.T.H.E.! This is a special introduction episode for new listeners. It is mostly clips from older episodes, and features a new intro from the cast explaining what the show is about and detailing their friendship as well as a brief history of the show's early years.
In this episode: we revisit our predictions from episode 175 and talk about the year 2016.
In this episode: It's a Christmastime marathon of Rankin/Bass specials. Every year we devote a handful of episodes to Christmas movies/specials. This year we only had time to record one, so we made it count. This is a massive 3 hour episode wherein we discuss 6 specials from top to bottom. The specials inculded are Leprechaun's Christmas Gold, Nestor the Long Eared Christmas Donkey, The First Christmas: The Story of the First Chrismast Snow, The Little Drummer Boy (1 & 2), and Pinochio's Christmas. If some of those things sound bizarre to you, it's only because they are. I hope you and enjoy this episode and have a great Christmas. Also: we say Dynamation several times when we meant to say Animagic. That is a thing that no one but us would notice or care about anyway, but there it is.
In this episode: We celebrate Halloween 2016 by discussing modern horror movies including remakes, oddities, foreign films, and recent releases like Light's Out and Don't Breathe.
