“Well I told you what we had to do, shoot down the helicopters.”

Will and Dara take a look at Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) a film which tells the true story of America’s involvement in the Soviet/Afghan war.

Among the topics of discussion Tom Hanks’ weirdly sex scene free career, whether exploding helicopters were the key to ending the Cold War, and of course film’s six chopper fireballs.

Episode 37.

November 23, 2016 12:33 PM PST

“Oh brother, somebody gonna kiss the donkey!”

Will is joined by Nick Rehak from French Toast Sunday to look at the most important film in the exploding helicopter genre BATTLESHIP (2012), a movie that features a record-breaking 8 (eight) helicopter explosions.

Our intrepid hosts also discuss chicken burritos, old dudes kicking butt, and whether this alien invasion movie, isn’t really about an alien invasion.

Episode 36.

October 22, 2016 05:23 AM PDT

“God damn, if I’d just been a couple minutes early he’d be breathing now.”

Will and Dara pull on their diving suits, hook up their oxygen line and plunge into nautical biopic Men Of Honor (2000).

Among the topics of discussion: the strange demise of Cuba Gooding Jr’s career, Robert De Niro impressions, and one of the worst exploding helicopter scenes we’ve ever had the misfortune to witness.

Episode 35.

September 24, 2016 06:39 AM PDT

“You just killed a helicopter with a car.”

On this show we’re looking at Die Hard 4.0 (2007) a film that includes one of the greatest ever helicopter explosions.

So, in keeping with the movie, Exploding Helicopter’s cranky old podcast presenter Will, is joined by an irritating youthful sidekick - Daniel from Get Reel Movies - for a show that’s a pale shadow of previous installments.

Episode 34.

August 27, 2016 12:57 PM PDT

“What does it take to change the essence of a man?”

On this show Will and Dara don eccentrically tasselled jackets and tie their hair into ponytails to look at On Deadly Ground (1994), Steven Seagal’s bizarre attempt to save the environment via the medium of action cinema.

They also examine what has been described as “one of the screen’s greatest ever exploding helicopters.”

Episode #33

July 31, 2016 01:09 AM PDT

“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.

May 21, 2016 01:56 AM PDT

“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.
