What started as a tribute to Doug Loves Movies has turned into a zany movie podcast between best friends Ben and Brad (and some of their friends too) where they talk about the last movies they've seen, the latest movie trailers, and go on some weird tangents and bits that often add no substance to the discussion at all.
Episode 147 - That's My Anakin Skywalker
Ben, Brad, and Nate just keep breezing through new (and old) movies. Everyone has actually watched their assigned movies this time. Kinda. Ben makes up for missing last week's, but he didn't accept his more recent assignment, so he's still basically messing everything up. This week, there was heartbreaking time travel, schmatlzy metaphors for life as houses, and a disaster movie that's truly a disaster. Plus, we talk about the trailers for Disney's Stranger World (SPLAT!) and They Cloned Tyrone (YOU DROPPED A BOMB ON ME, BABY!), and there's a new game at the end too!

Episode 146 - Ben Loves Musicals (And All That Jazz!)
Ben, Brad, and Nate are back, and wouldn't you know it, they've been watching movies. Well, Ben didn't watch the movie he was supposed to watch, but he says he'll make up for it on the next episode. But because of this, we're telling everybody that he loves musicals, even though he's pretty lukewarm on them in this episode. Brad and Nate still talk about their cinematic assignments, which include some pretentious zombies and The Boss. Plus, Brad has seen the controversial new Marilyn Monroe-inspired movie Blonde, and we look at the trailers for Damien Chazelle's Babylon (ALL THAT JAZZ! AND COCAINE!) and Henry Selick's stop-motion animated Wendell & Wild (KEY & PEELE ARE BACK, BABY!). Take these sounds, and fill up your head cave!

Episode 145 - The D23 Expo Trailer Extravaganza (feat. Blueberry Carmel Corn)
Hey! It's a bonus episode, and don't worry, it's on the house! Ben, Brad, and Nate talk about a bunch of trailers that were released during The D23 Expo, which is basically Disney's own Comic-Con. From Hocus Pocus 2 (MORE POCUS!) to The Santa Clauses (HO HO NO!), from The Little Mermaid (SUCK IT, RACISTS!) to Marvel's Werewolf by Night (SPOOKY! SCARY!), and so much more. And it wouldn't be a bonus episode without a special sponsor. Slide this one into your audio canals!

Episode 144 - Who's Ready to Cry?
Ben, Brad, and Nate may be a little late, but this episode is great! Open the podcast gate! Don't wait! There's plenty of debate in the things we like to state about the movies we extrapolate. This is exhausting, mate! Anyway, we talk about our latest film assignments, which include monsters, zombies, mental patients, and jurors. Plus, we take a look at the trailers for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (THERE HAS BEEN ANOTHER MURDER!) and The Fabelmans (A TASTY SPIELBERGER!). There's no game this time, but as a consolation prize, we talk about the movies that made us cry the most. How fun is that?! Pour this one into your ear deposit!

Episode 143 - Hammaconda and Pinocchio
Ben, Brad, and Nate like movies. Yes they do! They like movies. How about you? Our good friend Kelli returns to the podcast after spending several years away from our nonsense. We talk about the last movies we saw, including our assignments for the week, which include a silly Hitler, a presidential romance, and Vietnam. Plus, we highlight the trailers for Confess, Fletch (MORE LIKE WRETCH!) and the upcoming dueling Pinocchio movies from Guillermo del Toro and Robert Zemeckis (ONLY ONE CAN BE A REAL BOY!). Stick around for the game and keep an ear out for Ben's jokes that stop the show dead in its tracks.

Episode 142 - Nate Knows A Lot About Titanic
Ben, Brad, and Nate are still watching movies like a bunch of bums. Not only did they all watch the cinematic assignments they gave each other, but they have Ben Blohm and Susan Swarner stopping by for maximum fun. We talk about the trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (WHAT A WEIRDO!), debate the value of Bullet Train, and try to deal with Nate's iceberg-sized knowledge of Titanic. Plus, there's a supremely difficult game that you'll want to listen to right until the very end. Turn on your phonograph and crank up your ears!

Episode 141 - Mandy's Famous Chocolate Sauce
Ben, Brad, and Nate are recording remotely again! Sorry for the (in)convenience and audio that is more mediocre than usual. Brad's visiting his girlfriend in Utah, where there's also a delicious homemade chocolate sauce that you'll be dying to try. We talk about the trailers for The Greatest Beer Run Ever (GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM!) and Wednesday (CREEPY! KOOKY! MEH!) and dig into (most of) our assigned movies. Plus, Ben brought a game that combines movies and grammar. Neat. Receive us in your ears!

Episode 140 - Comin' and Coen
Ben, Brad and Nate still like movies a whole lot, and they're talking about the latest movies they saw, as well as the cinematic assignments they gave each other. Plus, Tim Gust is our guest, and you know he's brought salty, questionable opinions with him. We talk about the trailers for The Menu (YUMMY!) and the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series Andor (ROGUE TWO: BUT BEFORE ROGUE ONE!). There's also a tasty sponsor and a delicious game. Put it in your ears!

Episode 139 - Rat Race Sucks and Aldi is Great
Sorry for the lower audio quality here, but Nate decided to get himself Covid for a late summer treat, but Ben and Brad thought it would be nice to record remotely. It was probably a bad idea, but that's accurate for every episode we choose to record. Anyway, not only do we talk about the last movies we saw, but we also talk about the movies that we assigned each other to watch, which will probably be a fun, new recurring part of the show. Plus, we take a look at the trailer for Blonde (MARILYN MONROE IS BLONDE!) and Spirit Halloween (INSIDE A CLOSED TOYS R US!). We can't wait to make up for this episode by being in-person again next time. PS: If you're wondering how we possibly avoided talking about Prey, it's because we recorded this before the movie hit Hulu, and you can be sure we'll talk about it plenty on the next episode.

Episode 138 - Suddenly Cruisin'
Nate drops another bombshell on the podcast with some eyebrow-raising words about Tom Cruise. Meanwhile, Ben is pretty grumpy about Michael Myers, and Brad can't believe he has to put up with all of this. Plus, watch the trailers for Samaritan (SUPER SLY!) and Halloween Ends (EVIL DIES TONIGHT!), and we all get a special assignment for the next episode.

Episode 137 - Is This a Pants Off Movie?
Ben, Brad, and Nate are bringing you a special Comic-Con episode with some of the biggest movie trailers that debuted at the San Diego convention. Mike Flores joins them to talk about the last movies they watched before digging into Trailer Mania. If you want to follow along, we watched the trailers for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (GELATINOUS CUBE!), John Wick 4 (NUNCHAKU!), Black Adam (OH, HE'S A BIG MAN!), Shazam! Fury of the Gods (WHERE'S SINBAD?), She-Hulk: Attorney At Law (YES, WE KNOW IT'S A TV SHOW), and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (IT'S JUST AN AMAZING TRAILER, OKAY?). Plus, we play a little Marvel game. Cool? Cool. Apologies to Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Episode 136 - Where Is Steve Guttenberg?
Ben, Brad, and Nate have no idea where Steve Guttenberg is, so if anyone out there can help, please let us know. Find out about the last movies we watched, hear Ben unjustly insult a screen legend, and see how Nate fares with writing his first game. Plus, we talk about the trailers for I Love My Dad (DADFISH CATFISH!), Day Shift (A JUICY STAKE!) and a new spin on The Munsters (IT JUST LOOKS AWFUL!) from visionary director Rob Zombie. Just kidding, Brad thinks Rob Zombie sucks.

Episode 137 - Fart: A Documentary
Ben, Brad and Nate are back for another episode after their blockbuster reboot raked in millions of listeners. This week, we talk about Thor: Love and Thunder with some spoilers (you've been warned!) and make far too many references to a certain groundbreaking film about flatulence. Plus, we look at the trailers for Clerks III (THEY'RE ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO BE HERE TODAY!) and See How They Run (OOOH! A MURDER MYSTERY!). Finally, you're gonna wanna stick around for the games portion right up to the end, because there is a shocking revelation that shakes the very foundation of this podcast and our faith in Nate Loucks. (NOTE: Sorry about the audible breathing. Some of us are bad with microphones. We'll be better)

Episode 134 - The Legacy-quel
Crank up those ears! Ben and Brad are back, and they have a new friend! Nate Loucks joins them as a new co-host and a format that's a little more tight, but no less ridiculous. We get a little carried away with our talk about Adam Sandler. Plus, we talk about the trailers for Bros (SUPER GAY!) and Prey (IT'S THE OPPOSITE OF PREDATOR!). As always, there are a couple games, and the sponsor is a firm drink. You'll hear what we're talking about. P.S. Still working on getting the entire library of old episodes back, not to mention getting our iTunes profile back up and running, but it's all coming back very soon! Thanks for your patience!

Episode 133 - A Boogie Nights Escape Room
Ben and Brad are getting into the spooky season, and we've got Ben Blohm and Susan Swarner back to talk about the trailers for Last Night in Soho (SWINGING SIXTIES, BABY!), Nightmare Alley (IT'S IN TENTS!), Licorice Pizza (NO ACTUAL PIZZA!), and Ghostbusters: Afterlife (MUNCHER!). Plus, we play a little James Bond box office game with great soundtrack accompaniment by Brad, which totally ticks off Ben, but he feels better after hearing a great pitch for a Boogie Nights escape room. Enjoy!

Episode 132 - The Pineapples Were Fine
Here's a new episode for your earholes. We've got our old pal Mike Flores back along with first-time guest Nate Loucks. We're talking about the trailers for West Side Story (JETS! SHARKS!), Moonfall (THE MOON IS FALLING!), Halloween Kills (TRICK OR TREAT!), and The Matrix Resurrections (WHOA!). Plus, we munch on some Nerds Gummy Clusters, Ben misses out on pineapple in Hawaii, and we play some movie games. P.S. Still working on getting the entire library of old episodes back, not to mention getting our iTunes profile back up and running, but it's all coming back very soon! Thanks for your patience!

Episode 131 - We're Back: A Podcast Story
It's our first episode back in over a year, and this is just the beginning. We're getting back to recording new episodes every week, and for our return, we've got our old pals Alex Pappas and Tim Gust back for a Marvel-ous episode discussing the trailers for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. PS: Right now old episodes are not available, but we're working on reinstating them along with our old Apple Podcasts profile with all our reviews. So stick with us and we'll be back at full tilt very soon.
