DIY Demons: Lake Michigan Monster & Host

If you're anything like the BOP Crew, you've been idling away Virus Year with as many homebrew projects as you can. But while some of us are building LEGO castles or recutting Excalibur to be in sync, indie artists have been proving how much can be done with hardly anything at all. Join Cody and Jamie as they hype up Arrow's "Lake Michigan Monster", and Shudder's "Host", two wildly different, direct-to-streaming genre entries from directors Ryland Brickson Cole Tews and Rob Savage. Nautical hijinks abound as BOP delves into the changing definition of DIY filmmaking, the structural efficiency of the one-hour horror movie, and what a drunken sea captain's battle with a Cuphead boss says about America in 2020.

Warning: If you download this episode, for the love of god, be RESPECTFUL.

DOOM Commentary Track

Within the unseen Umbral Plains of Hollywood, film studios rip souls from promising films, producing husks of celluloid innards designed by The Nameless Marketers to please no one. Cinemas and discount bins infested with once earnest oaths for proper adaptation. Nowhere is this demonic pact more brutal than the videogame movie. The simplest of concepts, confused and contorted into unhuman wretches. It takes only podcasters with huge guts to examine the why and the how of such torment. A stellar cast, a writer with cred, the perfect blueprint, everything going for it and the right eye toward B-movie flair. But as it is written: the road to hell is paved with good intentions! Never truer than in 2005's long-awaited DOOM movie. Join us in Not Hell for this BOP 'n A Tragedy Commentary Track for this still kind of enjoyable heresy against a game classic, hopefully getting to the bottom of how it came together. BOP and Pod... until it is done!

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE Commentary Track

He's the best at what he does, unfortunately, what he does in no way involves the power to tell Tom Rothman "no." The BOP Crew reaches the zenith of X-Men Generation One in our X-Retrospective series, along with the zenith of late 2000s 20th Century Fox Tom-foolery (see what we did there?). This is our audio commentary for X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, a film meant to kickstart a spin-off series of Origin titles, be Gavin Hood's big break, the start of a (very) different Deadpool, plus many other incredibly broken promises. Instead, a writer's strike, producer and executive arguments, conflicting ideals, last minute changes, the entire film being leaked onto the internet, and a myriad of other problems forever altered an R-rated revenge tale about Logan's war-torn PTSD into... well, you've seen it. Certainly a Tragedy!

X-MEN 3: THE LAST STAND Commentary Track

Audiences and third films. They have long struggled to co-exist, with studios stretching directors to the point of burnout, and others choosing new blood to handle the ballooning budgets and ravenous expectations. Neither strategy has prevailed, and X-Men: The Last Stand exists as a monument to this riddle so few can solve. Join BOP n' A Movie as we move into Tragedy territory on the third leg of our X-Men commentary series, dissecting one of the most infamous disappointments of the 2000's, a film so poorly-received it was held partially responsible for "killing" the superhero movie before the MCU began printing money. 20th Century Fox (RIP) was a very different company in 2006, and the road that led to us becoming Juggernaut's bitch is strewn with false starts, corporate betrayals, message board tea-spilling, greed, addiction, and even more troubles in the Job-like existence of James Marsden. But underneath the jump-cuts and the botched story-lines, is there a solid X-Men story hiding out at Magneto's Summer Camp? Throw on that uniform that's a size too small and avoid getting your fur caught in the zipper, because you're about to find out!
