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!

Return To BOP's Lot: The Worst Of King



We've talked about a lot of good Stephen King movies on Box Office Pulp, but tonight we want to tell you about the ones that weren't so good. A lot of other podcasts have made fun of these, and we finally decided that if you want something done right... you ought to do it yourself. So join the BOP Crew as they reminisce about a childhood wasted waiting for The Langoliers to eat that airport, Matthew Mcconaughey's leisurely stroll toward The Dark Tower, the tremendous lasting impact Maximum Overdrive has somehow had on American culture, and the sinister storefront where each item comes at a terrible cost... boredom. When the dust clears, paper will have been torn, Tommyknockers will have Tommyknocked, and Cody will have been forever entangled in the nightmare that is... the Dreamcatcher.

TRICK 'r TREAT Commentary Track

During the spookiest time of the year, there are a few guidelines all horror fans should follow. Always check if there's a Blumhouse release out, never go to a stranger's home to see their VHS collection, and NEVER watch alone. I see you're ready to pop in the 2009 anthology Trick r' Treat tonight, but not so fast, Timmy! You want to let The BOP Crew check that movie for razor-blades, so give this BOP n' A Movie audio commentary a listen first! Our Samhain Specialists are here to explore how Michael Dougherty's directorial debut showcases the holiday in all of its forms, from the innocence of youthful corpse-carving to the romance of your first werewolf transformation. Along the way, they'll unwrap the SFX techniques that span generations of film-making, the balancing act of conflicting tones it pulls off effortlessly, the questionable decisions of a studio that tried to bury it at every turn, and the complex motivations of Leslie Bibb in a robot costume. And after they're done, you'll have so many delicious razor-blades left over for some tricking of your own!
