Jurassic Park, Meet Your New Partner Theodore Rex – Doubled Edged Double Bill Episode 7

Dr. Thomas and Dr. Mariani are welcomed to Jurassic Park to study dinosaurs. But they’ll need a partner to help them out. Fortunately, Theodore Rex was killed in the line of duty, so returning guest Sam Brutuxan is here to help breakdown two dinosaur films in anticipation of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom coming out. Our first feature is the infamous Theodore Rex, in which Whoopi Goldberg contractually obligates her way through a buddy cop comedy with a dinosaur puppet. Then, the original 1993 Jurassic Park that gave everyone a weird attraction to Jeff Goldblum and dinosaurs. Sit back and watch as these podcasters, uh, find a way to discuss this double feature! Listen here!

Wizards Rock… A Doodle – Double Edged Double Bill Episode 6

This week, Adam and Thomas are getting pretty animated. Well, they’re watching some cartoons anyway. Joining them for this animated adventure is Scott Johnson, beer enthusiast and animation nut. The first film for this episode’s double feature for the evening is Wizards, the 1977 Ralph Bakshi film that stretches the limits of what one would consider a traditional family film. Then, our trio tries to process Don Bluth’s 1991 flop Rock A-Doodle. One is a celebrated piece of animation made during the Golden Era of Hollywood. The other is Rock-A Doodle. It’s a fun time full of assassin robots, Elvis roosters and intrusive narration! Listen here!

In The Heat of the Mortdecai – Double Edged Double Bill Episode 5

Two films. Two stacked casts. Only one of them is good. It’s the biggest job they’ve ever faced. Yet, Thomas Mariani and Adam Thomas are here to pull off another episode of Double Edged Double Bill. In honor of Ocean’s 8 coming out, the duo is covering heist films as the subject. First up is the dullest end of the blade Mortdecai, the Johnny Depp vehicle that’s less a heist film and more of a series of mustache jokes. Get it? Because he’s got a mustache! Then, our heroes sit in a diner to watch the Michael Mann classic heist film Heat. It’s one of Adam’s favorite films… and it’s the first time Thomas has seen it! Crack the safe and listen right here!

Amityville Belushi: Based on a True Story – Double Edged Double Bill Episode 4

Adam Thomas and Thomas Mariani. Two men fighting against all odds to record a podcast. This is their story. For this episode, our hosts cover films allegedly based on true stories in honor of this week’s release Action Point. Yes, that is based on a true story, but you wouldn’t believe it would ya? Well, the same goes for The Amityville Horror, based on the alleged true hauntings of the Lutz family. On the bad side, the boys look at the extremely obscure John Belushi biopic Wired starring Michael Chiklis. You probably haven’t seen it. We recommend you don’t. Special shout out to Sam Brutuxan who makes a brief cameo to pull the trigger on our two choices! Listen here!

WOW!

NEW PODCAST: DOUBLE EDGED DOUBLE BILL!

Some – or perhaps most – of my limited audience here would probably know me from my podcasting work. And those people may have noticed that I’ve been radio silent for the last few weeks. Well, it’s all been in secret preparation for a brand new show I’ve been brewing. It’s… DOUBLE EDGED DOUBLE BILL!

dedbironrider

The premise is simple: each week frequent podcast collaborator Adam Thomas and I will come to the table to randomly select the yin and yang of a double feature. One will have two good movies. The other two bad ones. The both will have to pick a number between one and ten in order to seal their fates for each episode. For our first episode, the topic is films based on Marvel Comics. The good end is represented by the first Iron Man film from 2008. The bad end is represented by Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance from 2012. You can listen to the first episode here!

I’d also like to mention here another announcement for those who may be wondering why this new show was started and why I may not be on the currently on hiatus Horror News Radio as well as other podcasts on the Gruesome Magazine podcast network, which I had been involved with for several years. Well, due to a variety of factors, I decided to leave those shows. I will not be involved with Horror News Radio, Decades of Horror 1980s or Decades of Horror 1990s and Beyond any longer as a regular. I have split on understanding terms with those involved and wish them nothing but the best. Mainly, I just wanted to control my own show free of others on my own terms and about more than just horror films.Don’t worry; horror movies aren’t off the table by any means for Double Edged Double Bill, but sci-fi, fantasy, comedy and even drama are welcome as well in terms of discussion. I hope to have more people than just Adam and myself on Double Edged Double Bill, including many of those on the Gruesome Magazine network. Double Edged Double Bill will aim to be an inclusive environment for varying voices once we get our feet on the ground and many diverse perspectives are welcome.

Two Year Anniversary!

Hard to believe, but it’s already been two years since I started this blog! I want to thank all of you who have been reading since I started. If you’ve been following since the start, your loyalty is important and I’m incredibly grateful for all of your kind words. If this is somehow your first post you’ve seen here, welcome! Take a look at the back catalogue. Hopefully, I’ll remain consistent in 2018, with more retrospective reviews, lists and essay format articles to break up the regular reviews on here. In any event, you’ll still be able to catch me via Horror News Radio and Gruesome Magazine when I’m not writing here.

In the coming weeks, expect my big Top 20 list for 2017 and a few final reviews from the year. In terms of looking back, I’ll say the review that I’m most proud of from this past year would definitely be the mother! review, which you can read here.
