Episode 363: Movie Surprises of 2018

Another 2018 in review episode commences, all leading up to the Top Ten of 2018 (coming soon!), but this around, its the Movie Surprises of 2018.
Mikey, Dave, and Alison Brie Larsen Lover #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Mr Independent himself, Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess to talk all about a little of everything.

Kicking in first with a review of Burgess' IMDb page and some random up and coming actors in the area, including the infamous Daniel Scheinert (who??), an untitled project that Burgess may or may not have let slip (what??) and a rousing round of Rotten Tomatoes Potpourri... one that lasts a long time because four people playing to five can sometimes take a while.

Then, the crew jumps into the topic at hand, the movies in 2018 that surprised everyone -- didn't think they'd enjoy but sat back and thought "Well whaddya know, that was pretty entertaining..."

Movies like Hotel Artemis... Aquaman... more Nic Cage... The Heartbreak Kid Mr. Wrestlemania The Showstopper HBK Shawn Michaels... and even some Venom Venom... Venom Venom Venom....

Episode 361: The Not 2018 Top Ten

January rolls on, and January is full of episodes reflecting upon 2018. Last week, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl and Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess recanted their least fave films of 2018, and this week, its the Not 2018 Top Ten. And to do so, it takes a mega-episode to recap.

Burgess gets a new theme song... film festival schedules... the movie goals and not-goals of the movie crew... Are You There God, It's Me Margaret...

Plus the top ten lists of favorite movies seen in 2018 that didn't actually come out in 2018... from 1937 all the way up to 2017.  Movies such as a doc about the LA Riots... a 70s noir classic with Martin Sheen as a bad guy... documentaries about bombshells and Munchhausen by proxy... war rabbits... ghosts... thieves... clowns... predators... bad wedding weekends and, of course, The Monster Squad.

And the films for the 2nd Annual Burgentine's Day are revealed at last.
