In honor of the holiday season, I talk about two terrible little blonde boys on a single-minded quest to get what they want no matter who or what gets in their way — it’s A Christmas Story vs The Good Son.
I also posit my theories about an alternate universe where Ralphie is Macaulay Culkin and uses his Red Ryder BB gun for evil.
When it comes to people going too far in their pursuit of knowledge (and money) leading to ancient predators being unleashed upon the world that they need to then stop, Jurassic Park is nowhere near as good as The Mummy (1999, obviously). I tear into Jurassic Park much how a dinosaur should have torn into Dr. Hammond's awful grandchildren.
If you want to read the fantastic GQ Brendan Fraser article I reference, you can find it here: Whatever Happened to Brendan Fraser? by Zach Baron.
This week’s comparison features 2 unexpected and quirky love stories that don't follow the typical Hollywood formula — it's (500) Days of Summer vs Tiptoes. I explain why Summer was in the right, prove my undying love for Kate Beckinsale, and I beg listeners to help me find the extended cut of Tiptoes.
Instead of fighting with someone in your own family, watch fake families fight each other for your entertainment this holiday season! I get into the highly dysfunctional families of August: Osage County and Home for the Holidays and explain why I watch Queen Holly Hunter in Home for the Holidays every single Thanksgiving.
