SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME

Face front and queue up your Bully Maguire memes, true subscribers! In an uncertain world, one of life's few guarantees is a new Spider-Man movie, and it's getting increasingly hard to separate that character from the vast legacy behind him. Thankfully, pop culture's recent obsession with the multiverse (of madness!) has given Peter Parker another opportunity to confront his greatest nemesis: Peter Parker! And also the Green Goblin. Marvel's Spider-Man: No Way Home bites off more than any film should be able to chew, with Spidey facing the fallout of Mysterio's final dick move, a perilous team-up with Doctor Strange, a gauntlet against the dimension-hopping Sinister Six-Minus-One, and a serious case of space envy from his peers. And the Green Goblin's there. How can a movie stand as a sequel to ELEVEN films, across multiple generations, and still carve out its own unique place in the mythology? Because anything is possible in a universe that contains Willem Dafoe.

THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL Commentary Track

2021 was dead, to begin with. Dead as a doornail. And to lay it to rest, we've embarked on a most joyous recording: a commentary track for the beloved The Muppet Christmas Carol, cherished by many a soul as the best adaptation since Charles Dickens first put quill to parchment. Our brothers in felt's first outing after the death of Jim Henson, this holiday classic boasts career-highlight performances from Michael Caine, Steve Whitmire, and Rizzo The Rat as Himself. But did it hold a candle to the Scrooge chronicles before and after? And would the BOP Crew be able to reflect on childhood nostalgia, Muppet politics, and the  evergreen social relevance of the story before the brisk runtime was at an end? If you can step over the beer bottles Cody is dragging behind him, sit an evening with us and we'll tell you the tale!

THE LAST MATINÉE

Ah, a night out at the movies. A darkened theater, the crunching of popcorn, sweaty adolescence a few seats down, and a roaming silent killer lurking right behind you. The magic of the cinema experience! The BOP Crew got a chance to check out the new neo-giallo slasher from Uruguayan filmmaker Maximiliano Contenti, a moody and stylistic horror love letter to the times of gloved hand close-ups brandishing knives and synth scores that we are thrilled to gush over! Spoiler-free talk up front with all the gory details after. Come buy your ticket to THE LAST MATINEE!

THIR13EN GHOSTS Commentary Track

Cheers from beyond the grave, folks! William S. Castle, Jr. here, warning you of the latest advancement in spook technology destined to turn the podCastle world upside-down! You may THINK you've seen the 2001 remake of my beloved Thir13en Ghosts, but you can't call yourself a cinephile until you've experienced it in COMMENT-O-SCOPE. Do you dare listen to this BOP n' A Tragedy commentary track, as your thr3e hosts explore their love/hate/love relationship with Scott Beck's disorienting cult classic? Some say this haunted house ride of a film paved the road that Dark Castle and others would follow for a decade, but can YOU walk the same path, dodging knife-wielding beauties, plus-sized babies, and spasming Matthew Lillards? The faint of heart need not worry, though, if the secrets of the Black Zodiac are too much for you, just press the "PANIC" button on your seat, and you'll be escorted to our NPR Corner, where you can listen to harmless shows more befitting a... well, I'M not going to say it! Now where is that skeleton waiter with my vodka and boo-bon?
