Episode 136 - The Running Man and Corpse Bride

Week three of our celebration kicks off in style with The Running Man. In a dystopian future, when Ben Richards (Arnold Schwarzenegger) tries to stop a massacre, he ends up being framed for said massacre, escapes from prison but is recaptured and ends up on the world's #1 rated game-show, The Running Man!

Then it's off to Tim Burton-land with the Corpse Bride. It's one of your standard boy meets girl, boy is to marry girl, boy accidentally marries a corpse instead situations. It's very Tim Burton. 

So gather the family around the radiomajig and enjoy this week's episode!

Episode 135 - Romeo + Juliet and Invasion of the Body Snatchers

In the second week of our month long celebration to mark the end of our bottom 100 series, Trevor and Gabbie have selected very different movies. The challenge to the listener is to guess who picked which movie. 

First up we have a film based on one of Shakespeare's most well-known plays, Romeo + Juliet. It's the same tale but set in modern times and with on screen graphics to help those in the audience who might have trouble following the story. 

Then we have the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. When strange spores coat San Fransico and people suddenly start changing, it's up to Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum and Leonard Nimoy to uncover the mystery and save the city before it's too late. 

Who picked each movie? The answer may surprise you! Or maybe it won't. You'll have to listen to find out!

Episode 134 - Gremlins 2 and Heathers

We are kicking off our month-long post bottom 100 celebration in style this week with a couple of classic comedies from the late 80s/early 90s.

First up, Gizmo and friends are back in Gremlins 2. Billy and Gizmo are reunited and thanks to Gizmo's utter inability to follow instructions, there's soon another gremlin outbreak on hand. But this time, there's an ultra-modern building, a genetics lab and a musical number! 

Then it's Heathers. Veronica works very hard at being cool even though she doesn't exactly like her friends. But when she meets JD things take a more murder-y turn. Will Veronica go along with JD's sinister plans? Or will she decide there's more to life than murder?

Episode 133 - The Bottom 100 Recap

On March 12th, 2012, we began our bottom 100 series. And now, over 2 years later, we have finally completed our journey. In this week's episode, Trevor and Gabbie take some time to reflect on what they've seen and what they have learned from the whole experience.

We also crown the winner of our final four showdown and give our thoughts on what movie is most deserving of the worst movie crown.
