Or, We All Done Did It (At One Point or Another)
You know, when rewatching these movies, I always get the impression that my opinion is going to wildly change from what it was originally. It’s happened with TV shows, music, authors, comic books, even the occasional person or two. When it comes to movies though, those I’ve written articles for in particular, it seems like I’m pretty set in my ways. I liked Bride of Frankenstein back then, I like it now. I thought The Crow was dumb back then, and I think it’s dumb now. Not sure why, maybe I’m more critical of film than I am any other medium on a subconscious level, thus I hold it to a high standard. Filtering out the bullshit, in a fashion.
While we’re all still coming down from tryptophane poisoning, join The Guys Outta Brooklyn as they discuss their favorite Sports Movies. Thomas and Derrick talk about such notables as both versions of The Longest Yard, the boxing classic The Great White Hope, and the cult hockey classic Slap Shot–and then go as mental as they ever have been over the sports movie spoof Dodgeball! Plus the guys talk about their own sports memories growing up. It’s third and long, so what else can you do but click that download button now!

It’s time to kick the Better In The Dark Halloween festivities off in earnest, and what better way to do that than to release an episode focusing in Marvel Comics’ bad-ass Vampire hunter, Blade!

Of course, it wouldn’t be an episode without digressions and divergences, so we also explore the phallic nature of Spike TV’s name and try to answer the eternal question of “Jessica Biel: What gives?” It’s a fangful of fun, so get to downloading!
