Movie Chumps

  • Episode 196: Furiosa

    3 JUN 2024 · Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga rips and roars through the entire 148 minutes. As Corrye and Luke explain, the longest of the Mad Max films features plenty to love: Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth chewing up scenes; George Miller concocting another riveting yarn through unparallelled editing; and new characters to enjoy including Praetorian Jack and Furiosa's mom. The Chumps also tip their cap to explorations of this ragged wasteland, from the Green Place to Bullet Farm to Gas Town to a return to The Citadel.

  • Episode 195: RoboCop

    21 APR 2024 · The biting satire still holds up! Luke and Corrye pick through Paul Verhoeven's message-laden dystopian action flim from 1987 - a film that comes up smelling like roses in terms of the casting, and its rogue's gallery of villains. The Chumps marvel at the special effects as well as the core memory scenes that are as devastating today as they were when the fellas first say this in the late 80s (that acid scene!). PLUS: Luke tickles Corrye with an OJ Simpson-inspired 5 Questions in light of the notorious Buffalo Bills legend's death. AND: major developments regarding upcoming films from Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, and Martin Scorcese.

  • Episode 194: Big Trouble in Little China

    17 MAR 2024 · A rollicking good time! John Carpenter delivers an absurd cult classic, with help from super trucker Jack Burton! Cory Kesselring joins Luke and Corrye to discuss the fight choreography, the location of Little China, and the downside of the often forgotten prelude. Among the other hot topics: the three Rayden villains and their comically-huge hats; the imitation Kurt Russell is doing throughout the entire film; the warm blanket that is Egg Shen (Victor Wong); and the consistenly punchable Lo Pan. PLUS: The Chumps bid farewell...sort of.

  • Episode 193: The Iron Claw

    10 MAR 2024 · Not many had Zac Efron crushing this role on their 2023 Bingo card, but here we are. A24 pumps out another banger, this time, the tragic tale of the Von Erich family. Luke and Corrye welcome friend of the pod Cory K back to the podcast to discuss the Von Erich curse; how realistic the wrestling depictions are; the haunting images from Sean Durkin; and the creative decisions to leave out elements of the real tale that would have added even more tragedy to the story. Plus: Corrye Cook drops his Oscar predictions before the big night!

  • Episode 191: The Holdovers

    30 DEC 2023 · "A thoroughly refreshing glass of water." Those words from esteemed co-host Corrye, as the Chumps visit Barton Academy - an island of grief for three of our favorite characters of the movie year. A crowd-pleaser with heart, Paul Giamatti, newcomer Dominic Sessa, and rising star Da'Vine Joy Randolph are the best 1-2-3 punch since Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett. Sticking with this Celtics analogy, director Alexander Payne gets to be Rajon Rando - stringing together an ambience that's surely destined to be a powerhouse come Oscar night.

  • Episode 189 Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

    17 DEC 2023 · Zany. If you can define this film in one word, it's zany. Luke & Corrye take a trip down memory lane exploring a film that was a sensation then and a cult classic now. Who can forget Large Marge? The dancing sequence to "Tequila" in the biker bar? Pee-Wee calling out Amazing Larry in the basement presentation scene? So much to adore. And a large chunk is due to Tim Burton - and his rollicking creativity in his big-picture debut.

  • Episode 188: Batman Returns

    10 DEC 2023 · Prime Michelle Pfeiffer. Prime Danny DeVito. And some Grade-A Michael Keaton as well. Tim Burton was in his bag, as the kids say, with the follow-up to his Jack Nicholson-infested megahit Batman. This time, Bruce Wayne deals with MULTIPLE headcases. The Chumps have a ball holding a magnifying glass to Burton’s tricks, themes, lighting, and gadgets. And Christopher Walken’s in this, so expect an impression or four.

  • Episode 187: Unforgiven

    3 DEC 2023 · Many consider it the greatest Western of all time. Clint Eastwood's comeback to the genre in 1992 proved to be a beast at the Oscar's the following year. Luke and Corrye explore: the nature of violence in this film and how it's portrayed compared to Westerns of the past; Little Bill vs. English Bob; and William Munny's stunning finale shootout.
