his week, Jake Tropila joins Steve and Miros as the very first Caustic Content guest. We’re also going big budget (well, by our standards) for the first time. Miros unleashes the Troma-endorsed butthole horror classic, Hellitosis: The Legend of Stankmouth. Steve counters with an art house edge lord slice of extreme horror, Tempus Tormentum.Read More
Upon its release in 1974, Guy Hamilton’s final bond movie was derided for its lighthearted tone. Is Roger Moore enough to buoy this James Bond film, or is the The Man with the Golden Gun still a dud over 40 years later?
A rare ALMOST TIMELY episode from the OV crew. This week, we hit the local multiplex to check out critical darlings Searching and The Little Stranger. Oh and Shane Black’s new dumpster fire, The Predator, too. BONUS: dramatic reading of a classic David Ehrlich review and the return of the official Optimism Vaccine Went to the Movies theme song.
The age of single screen horror is upon us! The OV crew talks Unfriended and its sequel, Unfriended: Dark Web as well as the lesser known Friend Request. BONUS: unfunny sex jokes and mocking alt-right internet figures.Read More
Film has a long and storied history of iconic, acclaimed musicals so why not subject yourself to the worst the genre has to offer? This week, Miros subjects us to the ultra low-budget punk rock space opera, Psycho Bettys From Planet Pussycat and Steve counters with the self-proclaimed "first gay steampunk musical," Prof. Tomfoolery Saves the Planet!Read More
The OV crew shares their experiences from THE BINGE: A one time event where all four Purge films are watched and discussed. Remember, government officials ranking 10 or higher must remain unharmed, the use of weaponry above Class 4 is forbidden and police and emergency services are suspended.Read More
Roger Moore makes his James Bond film debut and special guest Adam Miros makes his For Your Ears Only podcast debut! Join the boys as they discuss Live and Let Die: A hodgepodge of blaxploitation cliches and Paul McCartney music.Read More
Moldy fridge or murderous alien creature? This week, the Bebop crew puts bounty hunting on the back burner to fight off a mutant lobster that has invaded the ship. Steve and Colin also take a look at the life and history of Steve Blum--American voice actor for Spike Spiegel.Read More
Spend too much time on POPULIST CINEMA and the art house crowd starts to cry out for more content. The OV Crew obliges. Join us as we talk about the best films of 2018 so far that might not make it to your local multiplex, including The Rider, Let the Sunshine In, You Were Never Really Here, First Reformed and more!Read More
Four episodes in and it's finally happened. Steve and Miros have found the worst film ever made. Is it Carrie Cain-Sparks James Bond parody, The Spy Who Boned Us or Z-grade horror/thriller, Fire Worms?Read More
George Lazenby is OUT and Sean Connery is BACK (for the small price of a record-breaking salary). Jack and Jake settle in for this campy, divisive Bond flick featuring martinis and a moon buggy. What else do you need in film, really?Read More
The Bebop crew visits Jet's old stomping ground, Ganymede, and encounter his ex-girlfriend along with her new criminal boyfriend. Plus, Steve and Colin take a the history of Jet Black's voice actor, Beau Billingslea.Read More
On this episode of Caustic Content, Steve discovers a new sub-genre of films that rely entirely on green screen and antiquated CGI for EVERY. SINGLE. SCENE. This one also happens to be a super hero parody called The Amazing Bulk. Adam counters with an ostensibly erotic thriller called SheChotic that hates women almost as much as the director hates proper lighting and developing characters.Read More
The cinematic trash train rolls on with two zero budget oddities. Steve subjects Miros to Love on a Leash, the story of a sassier, sexier Air Bud looking to get to the bone zone with a deeply disturbed woman so he can convince a magical fountain to turn him into a human. Miros counters with Revenge of The Animals; an AWARD-WINNING comedy (?) from Adam Griswold about murder, fame, camping and animal liberation...or something. God help us.
