“Do we get to win this time?”

On this show Will sharpens his Bowie knife, ties on a bandana and perms his mullet in readiness to talk about Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985).

Guesting on this show are Barry and Jairo from the True Bromance film podcast. Among the topics of discussion, revenge fantasies, the technical definition of a mullet, and Rambo as homoerotic icon.

They also look at a spectacular exploding helicopter and ponder the classic philosophical question: If a helicopter blows up in a forest and there’s no-one there to see it, did it actually explode?

Episode 32.

July 14, 2016 07:38 AM PDT

“This trip is going to make LSD feel like aspirin.”

On this show Will is joined by Nick Rehak from French Toast Sunday to look at John Wayne’s infamous Vietnam War propaganda film The Green Berets (1968).

Among the topics of discussion: what on Earth’s the film’s message is, whether it even has a plot, and the name of Hamchuk’s dog is.

They also look at cinema history and the only scene to feature John Wayne and an exploding helicopter.

Episode 31.

June 20, 2016 09:51 AM PDT

“When paradise became a battleground, she led the fight for survival.”

On this show Exploding Helicopter looks at the at the frankly bonkers jungle adventure romp Sheena (1984), a film which features the strangest and possibly greatest chopper fireball of all time.

Guesting on this show are Dec and Em from Two Takes. Amongst the topics of discussion: the Eighties craze for ‘white people in the colonies’ movies, whether this is the most ‘adult’ PG film ever made, and the cinematic joy of monkeys throwing grenades.

Episode #30.

June 03, 2016 09:42 AM PDT

“Are we shooting people or what?”

On this show Will and Dara take a look at Three Kings (1999) and try to work out if it’s a comedy, a drama or a war movie.

They also examine a rare exploding helicopter featuring an unexpectedly combustible American football.

Episode 29.

“Vengeance never dies. It only changes target.”

When Robert Rodriguez made a fake trailer for part of the Grindhouse project with Quentin Tarantino, no-one could have guessed it would become a real-life film franchise.

So, on this show Will and Nick Rehak from French Toast Sunday take a look at the Mex-sploitation action flick Machete Kills (2013).

Among the topics of discuss who would make Hollywood’s most unlikely action star, the enduring appeal of Moonraker, and of course an epic exploding helicopter of gonzoid inventive genius.

Episode #28.

April 08, 2016 07:21 AM PDT

"Pervert."

On this show Will and Joe take a look at one of the classics of the 1970s wave of conspiracy thrillers: Capricorn One (1978). Or do they?

What real evidence is there that they watched the film? Can you trust their opinions? And where's the proof it's even their voices on this recording?

There is though one thing that you can believe in: that this film features an exploding helicopter.

Episode #27.

March 31, 2016 11:01 PM PDT

“One ping only.”

On this episode of Exploding Submarine we take a look at one of the big sea beasts of the genre: The Hunt For Red October (1990).

Will is joined in the conning tower by Nick Rehak from French Toast Sunday.
We discuss the appeal of the submarine genre, Sean Connery’s hairpiece, and the optimum number of sonar pings in an underwater film.

We also talk about one of the classic exploding submarine scenes ever committed to celluloid.

Episode #26.

March 09, 2016 10:01 AM PST

“Terror goes into overtime.”

After Die Hard rewrote the rules of the action movie, Hollywood started churning out thinly disguised knocks offs that replicated its plot in increasingly bizarre locations.

So on this show Will and Dara take a look Jean Claude Van Damme’s Sudden Death (1995), which took the Die Hard concept and moved the action into the unlikely environs of an ice rink.

Among the topics of discussion: the wondrous villainy of Powers Boothe, improvised weapon making, and the never before seen sight of the Muscles from Brussels fighting a 7ft female penguin.

They also look at one of the most operatic exploding helicopters ever committed to celluloid.

Episode #25.

February 17, 2016 12:07 PM PST

“I married Rambo.”

Exploding Helicopter takes a look at the action classic True Lies (1994), which features one of the all-time great helicopter explosions (in case you’ve forgotten: a chopper is destroyed by a missile-propelled terrorist).

Along the way, Will and Dara go all chin-stroking intellectual to discuss the film’s strange gender politics and equally weird geopolitics. But they quickly revert to type to discuss Jamie Lee Curtis’ striptease and the bits where stuff blows up.

Episode #24.

February 03, 2016 10:33 AM PST

“Something cool.”

Will and Dara, the maverick podcasters who play by their own rules, are back. This time they’ve only 24 hours to review the buddy cop movie comedy 22 Jump Street (2014) otherwise it’s their ass.

They also take a look at the chopper fireball action and debate whether this film includes the greatest exploding helicopter kiss-off line ever uttered on screen. And our heroes also take a look at a rare animated helicopter explosion.
