The Lost Footage of Leah Sullivan reveals The Witcher and The Mercenary

Christmas has passed, the big holidays releases have been unleashed upon the world, and 2019 is all over and done with save for the shouting.

What are a couple of movie watching dudes like Jason and Shawn to do on this, their final episode of the year? Why, they've got some reviewing scheduled, that's what! And they put an indie-horror movie on the chopping block tonight at 6:05 on Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops!

That film is The Lost Footage of Leah Sullivan, a found-footage horror flick from actors/writers Anna Stromberg and Burt Grinstead. That's right, Anna and Burt wrote and star in this tale of a journalism student investigating a cold-case murder. Burt also directed the flick.

Not only do Jason and Shawn review the movie, but Jay sat down with Anna and Burt, and got the details on how it was made. How'd they do it, and is The Lost Footage of Leah Sullivan worth the watch? Stick with us!

And stick around as The Basement Boys set their broadswords upon Netflix's new fantasy series The Witcher. The series has generated strong buzz, and a lot of praise, but Jason and Shawn will judge it worthy of your time or not.

Ditto the new action flick The Mercenary from acclaimed director Jesse V. Johnson, and starring real life martial artist, and former Legionnaire, Dominiquie Vandenberg. Yes, Jason and Shawn have seen it too, and will weigh in.

Add in the rundown on what to watch at home and in theatres this weekend, and you've got yourself the latest broadcast... From The Basement. Join us via the 610 AM dial, or the streaming player to your right.

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

From The Basement - the "final" three

Just a gentle reminder From The Basement returns next Friday -- June 11 -- to the mighty Radio NL with an all-new episode! That's the good news. The bad news it'll be the first of our final three prime-time shows. What, you might ask? Are you bastards quitting AGAIN!?!? No. No we're not. We learned our lesson the last time. Shawn and I's long-running show will return to being "just a podcast," and not adhering to any set broadcast schedule. Why, you ask? Our lives are becoming increasingly busy outside of The Basement, and it's getting harder for Shawn and I to keep up with the latest movies, TV shows and entertainment news. We'd rather cease our weekly duties than produce an inferior product. Simple as that. Much thanks to Howie Reimer and the Radio NL crew for hosting us the last three years, first as a Friday morning segment, then as a prime-time series. It's been a blast! Don't worry, we're not coasting on these last three episodes. T
