WSTP? Minisode #6

The first question to ask is; Will Fuzzy Dan make it to the end of the episode without the Chestburster exploding forth from his lungs? You'll have to wait & find out!

For our 6th little minisode, we cover such topics as favourite movie props, favourite movie soundtracks, 'Uber or prostitute?', self-inflicted workplace injury, Cypress Hill - Hullabalooza style, Dillinger Escape Plan, Orgazmorators, jousting sticks, and of course - Neeko shitting on Tom Hanks!

It is with heavy hearts that we close out this episode with a tribute to the late GREAT Chris Cornell. Soundgarden were a major major influence on us musically, and we all agree that Cornell's singing was absolutely from another planet. Rest in peace, you magnificent man. 

Next week, we drop Casino Man - featuring Chris 'Braato' Braaten from our Californian brothers More Gooder Than. It was a super fun time!

We hit up you wonderful listeners in between episodes for specific questions, but if you have something random to ask, a suggestion for an episode (or song), or just a ridiculous movie related story, get onto our Facebook or mailbag! If you are an Apple Podcasts (iTunes) user, head on over to give us a killer review! :)

Special Episode 2 - Alien Covenant Review w/Paul (The Countdown)

After some 50 episodes, & 84 movies mashed up, blended, and punched in the balls... we finally review our second movie that's actually showing at the cinema! The first one was the abomination that was Independence Day: Resurrection. Hint - This one was infinitely more fun!

We had Paul from The Countdown: Movie & TV Reviews Podcast join us from Perth. We had a blast discussing the Alien franchise as a whole, reviewing Covenant, spoiling Covenant, and predictions for the future with varying levels of seriousness. The scrapped Blomkamp project - Alien vs Chappie gets a mention.

Non-spoiler review until exactly 28 minutes... after that, buyer beware! Additionally, if you haven't even watched the trailers and plan on going in totally blind, we spoil those BEFORE 28 minutes. Just FYI! :)

We close out this episode with a stripped-down acoustic cover of Tool's H. Enjoy!

Episode 35 - Sleepers In Seattle

Every now and then, the 3 of us come across a mashup that proves hard to pick a winner. This may or may not be one of those. Stalking under the guise of romance, and systematic abuse under the guise of juvenile detention... this episode's got it all. Well, at least those 2 things. We do our best to tread lightly over the macabre subject matter of Sleepers, and conversely, we hold up Meg Ryan to the strictest scrutiny.

Will co-host Neeko & Tom Hanks ever make up? How many Meg Ryan puns can we fit into 30 seconds? Why are there so many links between Sleepers & Basketball Diaries? An early 90s Seattle-based film with no grunge?! And does Fuzzy Dan cough up all 3 of his lungs? None of these questions and more, this week on WSTP!

WSTP? Minisode #5

Welcome to the first WSTP release to drop under the 'Movie Pod Squad Network' umbrella! This week 10 film-related podcasts from across the cosmos decided to get together & form a Cyber Voltron. Even though this episode is a minisode, we had a blast recording it (we even recorded it before our Conan Reboot episode; as Aussies we truly are time-travellers).

What happens when you challenge multiple Olympic gold medalist Cathy Freeman to a race around the science museum? How many phone books do 8 year olds need to reach the pedals of their Ford Bronco? Why does Bradlee want to watch clips of Six Feet Under? Does Neeko really hate Seinfeld? Did Fuzzy make a Star Wars diss?

Also, we close out this week's ep. with our random cover of Pumped Up Kicks. Something we thought of out of the blue, and just rolled with it. Stay tuned in the coming weeks, because the list gets weirder and weirder!

Do you use iTunes? If so, pop over & give us a rating! We'd lurrrrve you forever, and it helps us bring more rad content to y'all! Any requests/suggestions for songs, puns, mashups, anything, hit us up :

Episode 34.5 - DAS REBOOT : Conan The Barbarian

It's Mr. Universe vs Khal Drogo - who will emerge victorious? This week we pit Conan against Conan, in our 6th Das Reboot installment (almost immediately mistaken by us for our 5th! Read: drunk jerks). We have a special guest this week; friend of the podcast & Conan superfan - Fil Franek. We also have beer, wine, and a lot of cheap scotch!

Exactly how many Game of Thrones crossovers are there? Should you really inhale someone's dying breath? If you can summon sand demons, why are they just as fragile as humans? Is this James Earl Jones' weirdest haircut ever?

Tune in this week to hear us let loose on this ancient phenomenon!

Also this week, we have included some music at the end. We're gonna start doing this as often as we can, covering a vast array of stuff we feel like playing during the week. To kick us off : Scissor Sisters - Laura! Nothing polished or mastered, just random jams. Any requests/suggestions for songs, puns, mashups, anything, hit us up :

WSTP? Minisode #4

Welcome to Richmond's wonderful Royston Hotel! This week we are on location at our local watering hole, where we are TOTALLY spoiled for beers and foods, so we thought we'd try our hands at a recording with background noise. We tried to filter the chatter down just right so we are loud & clear and they are, well... slightly less loud & slightly less clear.

Did you know that a caterpillar can sound like a giraffe? Does Bradlee really have scurvy? Did you know there's a Banksy of punctuation? How big has the Rick & Morty culture-net been cast? What's the opposite of being fisted by Hellboy? All these regular questions and more... answered this week on our fourth minisode!

We'll be back next week with our sixth Das Reboot : Conan The Barbarian!! For this episode we welcome our friend Fil Franek; our resident Conan Connoisseur. Look out!

Episode 34 - Escape From L.A. Confidential

There is no escape from this ridiculous episode. Whether it be our inability to say Snake Plissken (see fig. 1a - Snape Bizkit), our amusement at Rusty Crowe's tiny, sober chin, or even James Cromwell's long lost Irish accent. Join us as we discuss terrible CGI, pointlessly long run-times, Guy Pearce's staunch mouth, and why Kurt Russell's death-clock keeps telling him to have sex.

If you're new to the podcast, thanks so much for giving us a listen - we hope you enjoy your stay, and see our contact deets below if you have any feedback! We're always looking for questions and suggestions for future episodes. Also, please consider giving us a rate / review in the old iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts - we'd be ever so grateful!

WSTP? Minisode #3

We're back to shoot the shite with you sexy pun pundits! Junkie parrots, coolers full of weed, Sly Stallone on the catwalk, magic mushroom bumper cars, bionic wrists, terrible Netflix shows, handing joints to Dave Chappelle... This one gets random!

We're REALLY enjoying the feedback, conversations, and completely bizarre topical wormholes we find ourselves in talking to y'all. So please keep it up! If you've got anything to ask us (no question is too bizarre, yet), and ideas for episodes, or you think we should be doing something differently, let your voices be heard! We love hearing from you. If you're digging the show (or even if you're not), please consider heading to iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts and chucking a rate/review our way :)

Episode 33 - Planes, Trains, & Auto Focus

Shhhmile for the camera, it's orgy time! This week it's our third dance with John Hughes (RIP), and our first dance with WSTP newcomer Paul Schrader. Together, they make an epic sex road trip for the ages - fuelled with Mile High Club shenanigans, dismembered bodies in trunks, incest with famous people, The Jerk TV series, and Willem Dafoe's used cock-rings.

Who's got the saddest sad-face? Who's got the craziest one-liner? Who's got the peskiest ding dong?

If you have any ideas for mashups or reboot episodes, or just wanna shoot to the breeze with us, see our deets below! And if you like what you hear, please consider throwing a rate / review our way; it helps us pop up on the radars so we can get more content to YOU - the Pundits

WSTP? Minisode #2

For Minisode #2... we touch on important hot-button topics such as U2, Nickelback, Cake at Starbucks, dumb carjackers, injured knees, PETA, movie trailers, bachelor parties, and more!

We had to cut this week slightly short due to recording our Logan review with the Shaken Not Nerd Podcast, so no Twitter Sweet Symphony this week. Our communicado with you amazing folks will be back with a vengeance (Die Hard style) for Minisode #3! Thanks for listening, and keep those tweets coming!

PS - Regarding our closing supercut - If you're not aware of Cake singer John McCrea's obsession with "Oh yeah", "Oh no", and "Alright"... now you are. Our sincerest apologies, and feel free to vibraslap us right in the sac(ramento).

Episode 32 - Sex, True Lies, and Videotape

The race is on to find out who is the creepiest mofo in this double-header for the ages. There is stiff competition, and we're not just talking about a horny Bill Paxton (RIP), or a masturbatory James Spader! Although both of those topics get quite the workout this week on episode 32.

Do horses really have ABS brakes? Is Peter Gallagher one of the biggest douches on screen ever? How the fuck is an "ass like a 10 year old boy" supposed to be a sleazy compliment? How does singing Third Eye Blind turn into a derogatory slur?

WSTP? Minisode #1

Welcome to the first official WSTP minisode! These are not our regular film mashups, nor are they Das Reboots... but instead just a quick recap of recent news, random rants, and answering your online correspondence.

Huey Lewis, Spikey Walken, Verve Twitter. They're all the hints you're gonna get, you'll just have to listen and see what the hell that all means!

Drugs in school, missing testes, soccer madness, Keanu Reeves (obviously), Nicolas Cage (obviously)... what a melting pot of cray cray.

Episode 31.5 - DAS REBOOT : Judge Dredd

For our 5th Das Reboot - We pit Sly Stallone against Karl Urban, Diane Lane against Olivia Thirlby, and Armand Assante against Lena Headey. Who will emerge victorious? You be the judge! *ducks*

How high do you need to be to enjoy tuberculosis? How did Ewen Bremner turn up twice in two weeks? Is this Rob Schneider's best work ever? And does Sly really call Fergee "Frankee"?! All these questions and more, delved into with the utmost detail this week in the 3121 Massive. The 1995 OG vs the 2012 Reboot - May the better film win!

Episode 31 - Snatch Me If You Can ft. Shaken Not Nerd

This week we ask the age old question - "Why would I want a caravan that's got no fookin' wheels?"

Our buddies from the Shaken, Not Nerd podcast join us again for an inebriated study of gypsy accents, grifting, braces, and how to sound like Christopher Walken on heavy sedatives. As usual, there are a buttload of Simpsons references, and some more friendly grammar battles.

Next week will either be our first of many mini-sodes, or our 5th Das Reboot - Stay tuned! Promo this week is for the Sudden Double Deep podcast - they choose a word that links 3 films and discuss; We like their style! And they really know their shit - show 'em some love! @SDDFilmPodcast

Episode 30 - Tank Girl, Interrupted

Welcome to the desert, welcome to Claymoore! This week we gather some badass heroines, and look at 2 extremely disparate films - Tank Girl, and Girl Interrupted. One has Lori Petty, the other has Winona Ryder. One has a chubby Jeffrey Tambor, the other has marsupial dancers.

Was Angelina's Oscar warranted? Why is there soooo much room underneath Claymoore Hospital with sooo much freedom to explore it? Tank-driving / BBQing / Martini-sipping = Best protagonist ever? How can a hologram punch you, yet you can't punch it back? And why does Iggy Pop have to be a sex offender??

The lovely ladies Andrea & Hannah try to keep us in check and fail, as we spiral out of control into the 90 minute zone (with the help of Muppet Vodka). Our rambling will not be stopped! Tune in next week as we finally tackle Nicko's cinematic sore-point : Tom Hanks... in episode 31: Snatch Me If You Can!

Episode 29.5 - DAS REBOOT : Cape Fear

Das Reboot #4 is here! This time we have a 29 year gap between drinks, and it appears we have some stiff competition, and we're not just talking about Robert Mitchum's starchy white boxer shorts. This week we put Mitchum head to head against Robert De Niro, 2 beasts of cinema in their own right. Who sucks their gut in the most? Who resorts to biting chunks out of their victims? Who sucks the most thumbs? Everyone beware of Max Cady because he's some sort of non-giving-up... STALKER GUY.

Next week, we record a female-centric episode - TANK GIRL, INTERRUPTED. Lori Petty & Naomi Watts vs Winona Ryder & Angelina Jolie... and a marsupial Ice-T to boot!

Episode 29 - Primal Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas - LIVE from Rainbow Serpent Festival!

This week we headed out to country Victoria for the 20th anniversary of Rainbow Serpent Festival! Between us, we've attended at least 13 of them, so this was a huge deal for us. So we decided, what better way to have some campsite downtime (and entertain the crew) than to record a substance-related episode. It's fairly short, as we had a cocktail party to cater, but we had a blast!

Would you trust Samoan Benicio Del Toro to represent you in court on a murder charge? Who is the biggest IRL douche out of Depp & Norton? Why is Gary Busey's dog so emaciated? How many bad jokes can we sneak under the table before we start handing out penalties?? Hint - it's a bunch.

Our amazing Bakersfield brothers at More Gooder Than (@MGTpodcast) sent us a killer personalised song the other day, and this week it's our opening theme. Thanks fellas, you're the best! Also, check out the Large Marge Sent Us Podcast (@TheSweetieClub) - two awesome sisters from Boston who discuss late 80s / early 90s films. Right up our alley :)

Next week we bring you our 4th Das Reboot - this time on Cape Fear!

Special Episode 1 - Akira (w/ Black Cab & Toshi Sakamoto)

A few weeks ago, us Melbournites were treated to a once in a lifetime opportunity - a screening of anime classic Akira, complete with a live soundtrack! Organised by Hear My Eyes, the live score was written from scratch by Black Cab, and featuring live Japanese Taiko drums by the amazing Toshi Sakamoto.

We have a discussion on the visceral experience of watching a movie with a live score, and then on a less serious note, talk about old movies that would benefit from a fresh soundtrack.

Next week, we'll be recording at Rainbow Serpent Festival in the middle of country Victoria. We're doing an episode on Primal Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. Strap on your bucket hats, and grab your best bottle of ether - we're taking this baby to the mooooon!

Episode 28 - Ed Wood Scissorhands

What happens when you cross Tim Burton & Johnny Depp... with Johnny Depp & Tim Burton? A stylish shambles is what!

How many times do we say "scissor" wrong? Where do you steer a mashup when they're already mashed up? Has Neeko coined the best New Year's resolution mantra ever?? And is this our last episode to feature spooky scumbag Jeffrey Jones (please yes) ??

Have an episode idea for us? Or just something interesting that happened? Offended by anything we've said? Hit us up; we might be drunk but we take this very seriously! :)

Episode 27.5 - DAS REBOOT : Point Break

Remake Point Break?? In the wise words of Nazi Kiedis, "That, would be, a waste, of time!"

Join us for a serious think-piece on the 2 versions of Point Break. One of them, a FBI superstar who discovers surfing whilst infiltrating bank robbers... the other, a fallen YouTube star who joins the FBI out of guilt. One of them has Gary Busey... the other, Ray Winstone. Help!

Why did Lori Petty turn into an Australian faux-hippie? What the hell is the Ozaki 8, and what does it have to do with robbing banks? Why is there someone called Chowder?!

None of these questions and more, and deconstructed very carefully this week on WSTP?
