So over the last few years I have been part of a podcast called Van Damme That’s Good. It’s hosted by one of my co-workers, Chris Pico. If you are familiar with Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (or fondly known as MST3K), it’s like that. For those of you not familiar with it, here’s a sample:
So essentially, we pick a movie and make fun of it. There have been instances in my past where movies are so bad you can’t make fun of them. I highly recommend doing it sometime; it’s a great event in a group.
Last night was my ‘farewell’ podcast watching Beowulf. I will try to post more info when it premieres. In case you’re wondering which one, it’s the terrible one from 1999 with Highlander’s Christopher Lambert.
In college, we called it Bad Movie Night. We used to go by the nearest Blockbuster (yes Blockbuster) and find a movie that looked terrible. Sometimes we were pleasantly surprised to find the movie to be quite good (George and the Dragon with a surprise Val Kilmer cameo) while Leprechaun in the Hood left much to be desired.
Anyway, hopefully my link to the Apple Store podcasts work. If you want to see the other movies I have done here are some awesome posters of them that Chris rendered:
The way it works: you start the podcast at the same time you are starting the movie. This way you can have your own little MST3K commentary by yours truly. It’s loads of fun, I promise.
