Ep. 187 - Project F

• September 12th, 2014

Who is John Galt? And why are we supposed to care again? This week on The B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a crack at the third film in the notoriously poorly produced Atlas Shrugged trilogy and try to figure out what the heck went wrong. Why does Atlas Shrugged make us shrug?

But wait, there's more: Bibbs and Witney also review the new releases The DropThe Skeleton Twins and No Good Deed, and bid farewell to the recently departed stars Joan Rivers and Richard Kiel, with a special emphasis on the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" alumni Eegah

Also, Bibbs recaps his Toronto International Film Festival experiences, with reviews of 13 upcoming movies including Mr. TurnerThe JudgeBig GameThe EqualizerThe CobblerThe Last Five YearsThe Duke of BurgundyThe Humbling and many, many more.

Special Guest: David DeCoteau

• September 2nd, 2014

You may already know the name of David DeCoteau, or perhaps you know him under one of his many aliases: Mary Crawford, Julian Breen or the amusingly named Richard "Dick" Chasen. He's directed 100 feature films as of this year, including four of the classic Puppet Master movies, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-RamaTest Tube Teens from the Year 2000Witchhouse, the Brotherhood franchise, the 1313 franchise and the modern cult classic A Talking Cat!?! And how does he celebrate such a glorious accomplishment? Why, by appearing on The B-Movies Podcast of course!

That's right, it's an in-depth interview with B-Movie titan David DeCoteau about his rise to straight-to-video prominence, the foundation of Full Moon Pictures, the rise and fall of Skinemax, the production of the Puppet Master movies, his ratings fiascos with the MPAA, and of course, A Talking Cat!?!, which David DeCoteau reveals was supposed to be outrageous on purpose. He also says that Eric Roberts, the voice of the talking cat, really did perform his entire role in fifteen minutes in his own living room. Because obviously.

Why didn't David DeCoteau cast Brad Pitt in one of his early horror movies? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: David DeCoteau!

Special Guest: The Dowdle Brothers

• August 27th, 2014

John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle, the director/writer duo who previously brought you Quarantine and The Poughkeepsie Tapes, are back with a new found footage thriller this weekend. As Above, So Below stars Perdita Weeks as Scarlett Marlowe, an archaeology who tracks the legendary Philosopher's Stone to the underground catacombs of Paris, but whose journey seems to take her deep into Hell itself. We thought the movie was pretty darned cool so we invited The Brothers Dowdle to The B-Movies Podcast for an exclusive, in-depth interview about the making of As Above, So Below and their experiences filming the M. Night Shyamalan-produced Devil and their upcoming political thriller The Coup, starring Owen Wilson, Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan.

Which of the cast members of As Above, So Below suffers from claustrophobia? Where do you poop in the Paris catacombs? Why did The Brothers Dowdle take so long to name their female protagonist? How do you make a found footage horror movie right? How do you do it wrong? Can we even call it the "found footage" genre anymore? Which Hollywood stars did Lionsgate insist get cast in The Coup? Why didn't The Brothers Dowdle want to cast any of them? And why does the memory of making Devil make The Brothers Dowdle think of spanking a stepchild? All these questions and more will be answered on an all-new episode.

Why did one of the Brothers Dowdle risk his life for a Snickers? Find out on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: John & Drew Dowdle! Subscribe to The B-Movies Podcast on iTunes, follow us on Twitter on @BMoviesPodcast@WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, follow the Brothers Dowdle on Twitter at @JeDowdle and @DrewDowdle, and check out their new film As Above, So Below in theaters on August 29, 2014.

Ep. 184 - Firefighters vs. Zombies

• August 16th, 2014

Why is male genitalia inherently funny? Find out in this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast, with your hosts William "Bibbs" Bibbiani and Witney Seibold. But before they get to the really stupid stuff they need to take some time to bid a fond farewell to comedy superstar Robin Williams and silver screen legend Lauren Bacall. Were we taking Robin Williams' genius for granted? Will we ever find another movie star like Lauren Bacall? The answers may... well, they may depress you. Sorry about that. They were just that great.


Also on this week's episode: Bibbs and Witney review The Expendables 3The Giver and Let's Be Cops and give you the rundown on all the latest movie news and whatnot: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles gets an obligatory sequel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre gets a non-obligatory prequel, for some reason there's going to be more Journey to the Center of the Earth Movies, Warner Bros. preps not one but two Aquaman movie scripts and Tom Hiddleston is in talks to star in a Ben-Hur remake from the director of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. To be clear, NOTHING about that last story makes any damned sense.

Why is Bad Boys the best Jon Lovitz movie never made? Find out in The B-Movies Podcast #184: Firefighters vs. Zombies! Twitter us at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, follow the show at @BMoviesPodcast and subscribe for free on iTunes. Leave us a review! That's how we stay on the air.
