SPEEDardy!

Surprise test, hothead! Just when the BOP crew thought they could enjoy some much-needed R&R, they're pulled away from their vacation to stop a madman threatening to destroy everything we hold dear: their co-host! Welcome to SPEEDARDY, the game show where the velocity is made up and the pedestrians don't matter, organized by Quizmaster Cody to test the limits of his friends' knowledge of the Jan de Bont crowd-pleaser... if only they had actually watched the movie beforehand. Will Mike get the girl, or will it be Jamie who discovers how few relationships based on intense experiences ever work out? Will we learn why Willem Dafoe needs a bathtub of leeches to fight off his Computer Sickness? Will ANY of this actually circle back to the 1994 blockbuster Speed?! Probably not.

SAW X Commentary Track

With the Oscars behind us, many are taking a second look at the remarkable stories from last year that have been tragically overlooked by the academy. Tonight, Box Office Pulp would like to spotlight one such story, that of a humble engineer who forgot to cherish the little things, until a surprise diagnosis introduced him to a new hobby, a new gal, and a new lease on life. Before he can finish his life's work, though, he must rail against an uncaring medical system and stop the exploitative business practices of a corrupt institution, or else this will be one jigsaw puzzle left unsolved! In their final BOP n' A Movie audio commentary track on the series-- until next year, sat least-- the crew have finally reached Saw X, the John/Amanda reunion America didn't know it wanted. Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith are back in the playhouse, the script is free to set up absolutely nothing for a sequel, and there's an actual budget this time around, so does the THIRD return of a franchise that doesn't believe in letting itself die finally recapture the gruesome magic fans have been longing for since the original trilogy? If the words "we have a rope" mean anything to you, then you already know the answer!

SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW Commentary Track

Tonight the C in ACAB stands for Chris Rock, as we take a look at the delayed, maligned, and overlooked soft reboot of the Saw franchise... no, the other one, 2021's Spiral: From The Book of SAW! In this Bop n' A Movie commentary track, we travel back to a time of chaos and uncertainty, where America was terrified by police brutality and the indoctrination of its youth into violent ideologies by charismatic extremists-- thank God that's over. It was a time when the horror community was shocked not just by another comedian entering the game, but by Darren Lynn Bousman's return to the series after seemingly cutting ties with Lionsgate, and the anticipated film missing its release due to a trivial complication like a global pandemic. Seen as a disappointment and forgotten by a series that keeps everything, did we miss out on a bold return to Saw's pulp roots, or does it deserve to be buried along with Jigsaw? The movie, you know, not the... well, I guess him, too.

JIGSAW Commentary Track

A BOP n' A Movie commentary track? But that podcast has been dead for ten years! The only explanation can be that there's a copycat on the loose, and it's set its sights on the most vulnerable member of the Saw family: 2017's forgotten soft reboot, Jigsaw! Crank up the Roy Orbison and grab your favorite bucket, as persons unknown revisit Lionsgate's first attempt to resurrect a dead horse,  but is the only entry from The Brothers Spierig the return to simplicity they wanted? Filled with new characters, time jumps, fan sites, retcons, and more expendable detectives than you can shake a Tapp at, can one of the men who gave us Good Luck Chuck create an apprentice who will finally make John Kramer proud? Step inside the ol' Tuck Ranch and we'll have a look...
