SPLIT SECOND

Satan's in deep shit! The BOP Crew is sitting down with some instant coffee and whipping chocolates at the refrigerator. Cody's housewarming party? No, it's because we're talking about the 1992 sci-fi/horror/noir/comedy from the writer of Hollow Man and The Fast And The Furious, SPLIT SECOND! Haven't heard of it, you say? Neither had we until the passing of it's star, Rutger Hauer, but what we found was a chronicle of the far-flung future of 2008, where a troubled detective who doesn't play by the rules searches the flooded streets of London for a killer who may be something more - or less - than human. In other words? B-Movie heaven! Listen we as we discuss it's eerily feasible "future" setting, the avalanche of plot points that take us from gene sequencers to astrology charts, whether or not this movie knows it's ridiculous, the joy of seeing prestige actors dress like action figures, why it really should have been called Black Tide, and how Stephen Norrington gave us the first live-action Venom. It's always comes back to Venom!

CHILD'S PLAY 2 Commentary Track

Oh, you thought it was the end, friends? Clearly you don't know how slasher flicks work! We're continuing our BOP 'n A Movie series on the franchise that keeps going and going and going and going. And unlike that piece of crap Energizer Bunny, Chucky don't need no batteries to do it! This time, we tackle the baby steps the series took as it moved on from Tom Holland, slowly began embracing a more campy tone, and sky rocketed everyone's favorite killer doll into a pop culture sensation! A debate has raged between series fans for decades on whether this sequel is a worthy successor. While The Crew all share differing opinions on that very subject, the aim is to dig deep and show to even it's defenders... Don Mancini's CHILD'S PLAY 2 is more interesting than it first appears! From the differences between alternate cuts, it's brutal take on violence, Andy's one-of-a-kind arc, and it's unique take on suburban horror. So, knock that annoying Tommy Doll aside and join us for this feature commentary!

Look out for gushing molten plastic by downloading the commentary right here!

Mini BOP - VENOM

The nineties were a grand ole' time if you were a geeky kid. An era ruled by a wise and fair Macho King, all your favorite characters co-existed in ice cream form, and an invasion of bigger, badder, and extrem-ier anti-heroes hit comics like a flaming-hot meteor, and cooled off just as quickly. Over thirty years since his creation, VENOM has not only outlived the trends that birthed him, but thrived -- much to the chagrin of the same readers who were his first fans. In Eddie Brock's film debut (we don't talk about Spider-Man 3), Ruben Fleischer and co. have not only paid shockingly faithful tribute to the nerd world's #1 problematic fave, they've chucked the macho doom-and-gloom for an upbeat romp about a boy and his blob. So why all the hate? In this Mini BOP, Symbiotic Experts Mike and Jamie weigh in on fans' curious relationship with the character, the one-of-a-kind tone that sets it apart from a sub-genre aching for experimentation, where this ranks in the annals of Weird Tom Hardy Performances, and how Venom is 100% a queer romantic-comedy. CHANGE OUR MINDS.

CHILD'S PLAY (1988) Commentary Track

The BOP Crew will be your friends 'till the end! Or at least until you shove us into a fire place and light us ablaze. But even being a congealed, melted hunk of plastic won't keep us from bringing you this BOP 'n A Movie! With the remake having just recently graced theaters, it seemed appropriate to travel back in time to the beginning of a now incredibly long-running horror series, to the first time Charles Lee Ray bellowed out an incantation to transfer his soul. The first time he screeched out "you bitch!" or skittered about the floor with a kitchen knife to threaten a small child. Ah, memories. But in seriousness, this franchise has evolved like no other, changing in tone and rebooting itself to stay with the times, never betraying it's continuity or characters, all while proving that a severe lack of AA batteries is one of the scariest things of all. So, join us for this feature commentary that dissects how the hell an 80s movie about a killer garbage pail kid is so god damn terrifying, effective, and way more prestige than it should be! Give it up for Don Mancini and Tom Holland's, CHILD'S PLAY! Also, we find out how much Mike despises puppetry.
