Episode 61 - The Emoji Movie

After a long hiatus, we're back with the film you voted for as the worst of 2017, it's the Candy-Crushingly dull, glorified app advert The Emoji Movie!

We're running through the intelligence insulting plot, the fact that every beat of the film is explained ad nauseam, crass consumerism and the film's near-obsession with weirdly out of date references to 2006. Expect a total character assassination of TJ Miller while we're at it too!

Episode 60 - Jack Frost

We're wrapping up 2017 with the mercilessly depressing "kids' film" and decidedly un-Christmas-y Christmas film, it's 1998's Jack Frost. We're talking terrible parenting out the wazoo, the likely shelf-life of Michael Keaton's Christmas-themed band, dispatches from Henry Rollins' spoken word and the film's complete and utter lack of a second act. 

Don't forget to cast your vote for our Worst Film of 2017 episode after you've listened:

Episode 59 - Highlander 2: The Quickening

Sequel Season draws to a close with a film considered to be one of the worst of all time, it's 1991's Highlander 2: The Quickening! We're talking its tenuous grasp on the concept of immortality, 16th century television screens and some of the most unbelievably sloppy filmmaking we've seen.

Also, Sean Connery gets stuck at an airport, and we investigate #TeamHighlander2 as part of a fanboy's IMDB review.

PLUS: It's that time of the year again, we're opening the ballots for our Worst Film of 2017 vote! Make your voice heard here:

Episode 58 - Anaconda

Sequel Season is on hold, we're getting in the mood for All Hallow's Eve with our fan-voted Halloween special, it's 1997's Anaconda!

We're talking Jon Voight's horrific accent and red t-shirt, the lack of actual horror in this so-called horror film, Owen Wilson's 'wow'-heavy performance, god-awful CGI and - somebody call the fun police - we read out possibly the most humourless IMDB review ever.

Plenty of snake-charming and career-harming in this one, settle down and get spooky in time for the 31st!

Episode 57 - Speed 2

Jan De Bont's attempt to rock the boat has made us seasick; we're getting to grips with part two of Sequel Season, it's 1997's slow-as-molasses misfire Speed 2: Cruise Control!

We're talking Sandra Bullock's lobotomy between this and Speed 1, whether Willem Dafoe makes a good bad guy, the grindingly slow "action" on screen, and UB40's guest appearance as the whole films runs aground with unlikeable characters, dull set-pieces and more VNP Hall of Famers you can shake a stick at.

Think worse things have happened at sea? You owe it to yourself to hear us talk through this sequel snoozer.

Episode 56 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze

Reeking of development hell, Sequel Season finally arrives a whole two months after being announced, and what a doozy we're beginning with, it's 1991's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze!

We get confused and confounded over which Turtle is which, and talk the film's utterly useless antagonists, Splinter's horny side, endless plot points that go nowhere and the glorious return of Vid Neg alum Vanilla Ice and his on-the-spot improv skills with a line-by-line reading of the majesty that is the Ninja Rap!

Also, pro wrestler Kevin Nash's star turn as Super Shredder gets a look in and we reveal the next film as part of the season, one with a whopping 3% on Rotten Tomatoes! Tune in to find out what it is!

Video Negative x One Good Thing - The Wicker Man '06

The second of this summer's bonus episodes sees Oliver join forces with podcast chums One Good Thing to take on the flash-backing, back-tracking madness of 2006's infamous The Wicker Man!

Nic Cages makes an unwelcome return to the show as we interlock the Director's and Theatrical cuts in an attempt to uncover the one good thing about this crappy cult classic. We're talking the films' endlessly useless plot points, complete dearth of terror or suspense, and the somewhat overstated (and overrated) madness of Nic Cage (which makes up about 2% of this hellishly dull retread of a remake).
