The Boys From Brooklyn go mucking about the skeletons in their cinematic closets to talk about the Movies That Suck That They Love.

Thomas and Derrick take a swashbuckling trip down memory lane as they discuss the Sinbad trilogy of Ray Harryhausen! From The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad to Sinbad and The Eye of The Tiger, the Boys Outta Brooklyn go in-depth on why stop-motion animation rocks, why John Phillip Law’s version of Sinbad is a dick, and why Caroline Munro is the hottest woman ever! (7/9 Addendum: Shortly after posting this episode, we learned that Kerwin Matthews, who is discussed in this episode, passed away. This episode is respectfully dedicated to his memory.)

I suppose I just can’t help it. Now that Sting has signed on to the WWE, a move that would have blown people’s minds in 1997, and is fulfilling every wrestling fan’s dream by feuding with a bald middle-aged Triple H, I just can’t help but think of The Crow. Indeed, Sting’s shameless rip-off of J.O. Barr’s famous comic book (or rather the film adaptation, which at the time was still relevant) has become The Icon’s most popular and signature gimmick, perhaps even eclipsing that of the original. The power of marketing is a dangerous thing, ladies and gents. How else would an Ant-Man have a chance of making over a million dollars?
