BOP Brews: Vol. 1



This New Year's Evil, pour yourself something nice, sit next to a roaring fire, and listen to the first-ever Box Office Pulp clipshow! Then immediately throw out whatever drink you just made, because our Senior Mixologist  Cody "Drinking" Alft is your guide through the world of movie-themed booze. Want the perfect drink to get you in the mood for Clue? Cody's drunk it™! Looking to dull the cosmic horror of Event Horizon? Cody's drunk it™! Want to get plastered while watching Harry Potter? Highly inappropriate for a variety of reasons, but you better believe Cody's drunk it™! So enjoy this compilation of one man's desire to unite cinema and suds, and for the love of Papa Satan, do your drinking indoors instead of forcing yourself upon the world like some kind of drunk Frankenstein, trapped in a world he never drank.

WHEN THE GLASS IS FULL, DRINK UP, DRINK UP. THIS MAY BE THE LAST TIME WE SEE THIS CUP. IF GOD WANTED US SOBER, HE'D KNOCK THE GLASS OVER, SO WHILE IT IS FULL WE DOWNLOAD!

Netflix And BOP



As countless movie trailers keep reminding us, the world is changing. With theaters struggling to attract butts to seats, streaming sites are shaping up to soon be the primary way we see new releases. So how well are they handling the responsibility? Join Cody and Jamie as they discuss the highs, lows, and Brights of the former pop-up ad nuisance and current King Of New Media, The Net-Flicks. Does The Irishman live up to the hype, or did Disney put out a hit on Martin Scorsese for nothing? Is word-of-mouth going to be enough to make these titles stand out in an increasingly flooded library? Are we close to Netflix Horror becoming a sub-genre of its own? And for God's sake, will somebody tell Tom Waits how high a bird can count? Next episode playing in 3... 2... 1...

John Carter (Of Mars) - LOVE THE BOMBS


Mars ain't no place to set a movie. In fact, it's cold as hell. This is a lesson Andrew Stanton would learn in 2012 when the release of his dream project, a mega-budget adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' massively influential John Carter novels, was met with spectacular apathy from critics and audiences alike. Released a month before The Avengers, this mocap-heavy sci-fi/fantasy/western was going to kick off the next great Disney franchise, but inexperience, bad timing, and one of the most ill-advised marketing campaigns in recent memory doomed it to the scrap heap. A shame, since it's one of the most charming and lovingly-crafted adventure flicks of the last decade. In this edition of How I Learned To Love The Bombs, we detail how a Pixar director with no live-action experience rescued John Carter from 80 years of Development Hell, the trilogy and more we almost got from a team with three Oscars and a Pulitzer between them, Lynn Collins' turn as the 2010's most unsung action heroine, and how this movie is one Ocean Master away from just being Aquaman.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY (1991) with Spooky Gal's Corner

The BOP Crew does what they wanna do and says what they wanna say... and the podcast might be worst off for it. In this extra special creepy and kooky episode, we turn the clock back to the radical '90s to talk one of our most affectionate childhood movies, Barry Sonnenfeld's THE ADDAMS FAMILY! But, since we three are only mysterious, creepy and kooky, we needed someone to really bring in that spooky! So we reached out to friend of the show and real life Morticia, Jasmine of Spooky Gal's Corner! With our powers combined, we're all together ooky, which is the perfect state of being to talk about this seminal film in many people's lives, which would go onto birth a whole movement of classic TV to film adaptations and cement the iconic versions of these decades old characters. Not to mention immortalize the late Raul Julia. So snap your fingers in tune because it's time to play wake the dead!
