“Try to stay dead this time.”

On this show Will and Dara attempt to unscramble the DNA of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s sci-fi thriller, The 6th Day (2000).

Along the way they decode the film’s surprisingly solid science fiction ideas, ponder Arnie’s Noughties film career, and the strange documentary career of Michael Rapaport.

And they of course dissect the film’s futuristic exploding helicopter scene.

Episode 62

July 01, 2018 04:08 AM PDT

“Were you expecting an exploding pen?”

On this mini-episode, Will takes a look at Skyfall (2012), the last James Bond movie to feature an exploding helicopter.

Episode 61.

June 02, 2018 01:48 AM PDT

"Never get out of the boat."

In a break from the usual programming, Will travels upriver alone on this show to review Apocalypse Now (1979)

On the journey, he considers how the film's uncanny parallels to a package holiday - albeit, one with a little light homicide thrown in.

Episode 60.

May 11, 2018 01:05 PM PDT

“Next time we’ll take a cruise.”

On this show Will is joined by Doug Tilley from Eric Roberts Is The Man to review the bizarre faith-based martial arts movie Lasko: Death Train (2005).

The film sees its hero, a peace-seeking monk, recruited into a secret paramilitary group dedicated to protecting the church. Along the way he has to fight terrorists, a deadly virus, and some truly horrendous dubbing. And there’s also two stone cold classic exploding helicopters.

Episode 59.

April 21, 2018 11:02 AM PDT

“Band aids and butterbeans, we’re online.”

On this show Will is joined by DJ Valentine from Simplistic Reviews to review the new Netflix action-comedy Game Over, Man! (2018).

Among the topics of discussion, the film’s Die Hard pastiche, what on earth Daniel Stern is doing in this, the off-colour humour, and – of course – the exploding helicopter action. 

Episode 58.

March 30, 2018 07:45 AM PDT

“Is this moron number one? Put moron number two on the phone.”

On this show Will forcibly escorts Dara to the end of the podcast in the hope of collecting a bounty as they review Midnight Run (1988)

Along the way the pair bicker then bond as they discuss Robert De Niro’s comedy chops, why you can never remake Eighties films, and all the exploding helicopter action. 

Episode 57.

March 09, 2018 11:20 PM PST

“Everything’s easier in a mini-skirt.”

In a break with the usual programming, Will carries out his first ever solo review by looking at the Renny Harlin helmed propaganda film 5 Days Of War (2011).

Starring Val Kilmer and Andy Garcia the film tells the story (or at least one side of it) of plucky Georgia and its heroic efforts to resist a Russian invasion.

There are horror-inducing cameos, terrible accents, and, of course, an exploding helicopter.

Episode 56.

February 16, 2018 02:02 PM PST

“I was born into a world you may not understand.”

On this show Will and Dara suck the blood out of Milla Jovovich’s sci-fi vampire flick Ultraviolet (2006).

They discuss the film’s strange use of visual effects, vampires that don’t act like vampires, and the music career of Milla Jovovich.

They also take a look at Ultraviolet’s spectacular exploding helicopter action which involves 'Midriff' Jovovich motorcycling through an airborne whirlybird.

Episode 55.

January 27, 2018 12:32 AM PST

“Whose pyjamas are these?”

On this show Will is joined by Troy-Jeffrey Allen from Action A Go Go to talk about Ant Man (2015).

They take a dive into the characters comic book history, discuss where it fits in Marvel’s recent output, and review the unique exploding helicopter sequence (even though Troy completed missed it).

Episode 54.

January 06, 2018 02:03 AM PST

“I don't think you understand, these boys killed my dog.”

On this show Will and Dara take a look at assassination conspiracy thriller Shooter (2007) starring Mark Wahlberg and Danny Glover.

Among the topics of debate: Mark Wahlberg’s controversial disguise, Danny Glover’s teeth, and does this film contain one of the poorest helicopter explosions we’ve yet seen.
