Jason and Shawn versus Exit 727 and Skinwalker Ranch

Exit 727

Shawn: Well, it has a low budget, is poorly acted, based loosely on a true story. I didn't expect much, but I know they busted their asses on it, and I can really appreciate that. For Jason, there is a beautiful scene, where workers get their revenge on their boss. Something everyone wishes for. This reminded me of our home movies, except this one was well edited and the story wasn't filled with cheese. I dug it for a watch and hope Jason gets to see boss revenge. That is about the only play for this one. It is a Bad. A low Bad.

Skinwalker Ranch

Jason: What sets this flick apart from other found-footage movies is it's slickly made with not much shaky camera work AND it's based on the real Skinwalker Ranch. I was certainly more interested in the story being told because of its grounding in “reality.” Co-writer/director Devin McGinn made and starred in The Last Lovecraft, which we reviewed a couple of seasons ago. And I've seen hot chick Erin Cahill in Boogeyman 3 and recognize Kyle Davis from a slew of movies, including The Hitcher and Friday the 13th remakes, along with The Last Lovecract. Recognizing them didn't hurt Skinwalker Ranch for me. I knew this was just another movie and could enjoy it as such. I don't know if I would seek this out again, but I would watch it if someone else like Shawn was. I know he's into the UFOs and such. It's a Bad, but it's still pretty good.

#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
