Welcome to the sixteenth Patron's Choice podcast from our Patreon. This episode originally aired on February 27th, 2018, and almost broke us as people, if I remember correctly. It was practically record-breaking, in that we almost turned it off after seven and a half minutes and watched "Smokey and the Bandit Part 3" instead. Alternatively, we almost just quit after seven and a half minutes and nearly did a podcast on just that much of the movie, but we decided against it, cause we didn't want to set a precedent of being able to quit. We're not quitters. The film starred Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, and Sam Palladio.
Strange Magic cost an estimated $70 - $100 million dollars to make, and I just bet you can't guess if something George Lucas did in 2015 flopped or not. Of course, the answer is: it flopped hard. It only made $13.6 million worldwide and only a little over a single million of that was outside the United States.
Join us next week as we start our next "normal" season with the Nick Cage classic, 2004's "National Treasure."
Welcome to the seventeenth Patron's Choice Podcast from our Patreon. This episode was originally uploaded in March of 2018. It was an important podcast in that this is the first podcast with our current microphone setup that made everything sound better, and unimportant in that we hated this movie and got completely trashed as a result. Anyway, We watched 2016's Norm of the North, which was an incredibly preachy film about not building condos in the Arctic; which, if I'm not wrong, is in no way a problem, and probably never will be, at least until the temperature rises high enough for the Arctic to no longer be so arctic. Happy thoughts. This feel-good film starred Rob Schneider, Heather Graham, Ken Jeong, Colm Meaney, Loretta Devine, Gabriel Iglesias, Michael McElhatton, and Bill Nighy.
Norm of the North cost a reported $18 million to make. In the United States, it made back roughly $17 million, and a further $13.4 million on the International scene, for a combined World Wide gross of $30.5 million. Mercifully; no sequel.
Join us next week for 1993's "The Three Musketeers"! (This Didn't Happen)
Welcome to the eighteenth Patron's Choice podcast from our Patreon. This episode was originally uploaded on Patreon in April 2018. As might be apparent, this episode originally aired during our wrestling season. It may have been the "final episode" of that season, but I really can't find it in me to look that deeply into this episode today. I believe that, in this episode we describe the film as Vince McMahon's wet dream of how important he thinks the WWF/E was/is. Now, don't get me wrong, I love wrestling and WWE has been great at points, and to be fair this was during the "Golden Era", but I'm not sure how much that should count towards how good the film is. This film stars Hulk Hogan, Kurt Fuller, Joan Severance, and Tiny Lister. But let's be real, there is not a single star of this film.
No Holds Barred had an estimated $8 million budget, and made back $16,093,651 in the United States, which I suppose is fine, but surely not what Vince wanted. There was mercifully no release outside the states.
Join us next week for (finally) our Three Musketeers (1993) episode. (This Will Happen)
