Episode 555: The Most Inept Movie Bad Guys

When you get five and half-a-hunna episodes into your podcast, including 12 Halloween Episodes, you can't always do "Best Villains"... sometimes you have to go the other way, and do the "Worst Villains", or more specifically, "The Most Incompetent Bad Guys" in films.

October birthday movies up first, as Blade Runner 2049 celebrates its 5th birthday, The Might Ducks has it's 30th birthday, and The Manchurian Candidate turns 60 (RIP Angela Lansbury!)

Guest of the night, Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess joins the show to fill us on on Dust on the VCR as well as the update on the upcoming film Don't Die.

Then, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl, and Burgess give their own list of greatly terrible bad guys in film -- written well but played poorly, or the storyline they are given is terrible, or flashy but totally ineffective for any number of reasons.

Finally, MikeTober #9 commences, with Mikey giving his recap and ranking of "Speak No Evil", "Dog Soldiers", "The Vanishing" and some other movie I can't remember but he didn't like as much.
