Jason and Shawn versus Bounty Killer and I Declare War

Bounty Killer

Jason: I am madly in lust with Mary Death, AKA Christian Pitre. She's one bad ass chick and looks dead sexy in every shot she's in. And although exceptionally hot, I still believed she could kick all that ass. Kudos to her. Bounty Killer does overstay it's welcome a bit. And Gary Busey is underused, although he was probably drunk and/or high for most of the filming. But I'd still watch this again. There's been few movies in the last year that have been as violent, bloody, funny and sexy as this. Which is to say I was highly entertained by this flick. It's a Good.

Shawn: Now here is a movie that is geared for adults in every way, shape and form. Did I dig this post apocalyptic business killing dreamland? You betcha, I had a great time....for one watch. I'll give it a Bad, but it was much closer to a Good than some. It dragged on a tad too long, tried to tie in too much story in a movie that was mostly straight forward. I wouldn't seek it out to watch again, but if I walked in a room while someone was watching it, I'd watch it too!

I Declare War

Jason: I Declare War perfectly captures the drama, double crosses, bitter rivalries, and over-active imaginations that all boys -- at least the ones that I knew -- had playing war. Hell, to this day I blow people up with my mind or laser vision. The best part of this movie was seeing the war game through the kids' eyes. Sure, they were carrying toys and sticks and had to make “pow pow” sounds. But we saw it as they saw it, real guns firing real bullets. Real grenades that really exploded. None of this paint BS. While some sensitive types might cringe at this portrayal, I loved it. I will watch this again. Hell, I intend to own it. And anyone that enjoys a good damn movie should watch it. 'Cause it's Good!

Shawn: Interesting concept. But BIIIIIIGEST gripe with this movie is who the flaming fuck is the target audience supposed to be, hmmmm???!?!!? As a parent, I don't care to see a bunch of 11 year olds running around the woods swearing and torturing each other. War is fine, but what was with the "realism" of the imagination taking over. I mean, cool that you did that, if the target audience was kids. But the profanity and levels of racism etc is for the adults, but then you left out the gory part, as if it were for kids. Points for originality, but not enough for a Good. Bad. I spent the bulk of the movie not understanding why it was made. And the lead kid needed a good smack. Period.

#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
