So, What's the Problem? Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

Sequel month continues with a spicy one. Jimmy would like to apologise to those who love this movie... but neither of the hosts do. And that's okay. There's still some good stuff in there, of course but Jimmy and Jen are here to talk about the bad. I mean, it's the point of the podcast.  Contains strong language. 

At least this movie spawned one of Jimmy's favourite GIFs of all time-

Fringe Division 1:16- Unleashed


Sadly, it's another pretty "blah" episode of Fringe (as Martin predicted) as a member of the team that's not really a member of the team gets infected by a giant hybrid creature. It sounds great but it's a dull trope-fest with a non-sensical character moment for Walter. Jimmy and Martin also talk about WandaVision (no spoilers) and insult the French. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)


It's sequel month here at "So, What's the Problem?" and we are starting with this very 90s follow-up to a very 70s classic. Also, this is being released on the 47th anniversary of the release of the original novel. Topics include toxic masculinity, casting folk who look far too old to be teens and a very hot take about a beloved reviewer. Contains strong language and adult themes. 

Frigging love this shot...

Fringe Division 1:15- Inner Child

It's episode fifteen of the hit TV show, Fringe and Martin and Jimmy talk about Buffy. Oh and Fringe, of course. Is this a filler episode or one that sets up more of the mythology? Or is it both? Neither host knows but they chat about it anyway. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem?- My Father the Hero (1994)

Okay folks, strap in because Jimmy and Jen are here to talk about a really weird and creepy remake of a French movie. Which was probably also weird and creepy but French. This is America, though, dammit and we don't over sexualize 14 year old girls and play paedophilia for comedy in a PG Disney movie here! Oh, wait... Contains strong language and adult themes. 

Ummm...

Fringe Division 1:14- Ability

Here it is, folks, our longest episode yet! By about a minute. Anyway, it makes up for last week having a longer music outro just to pad time. This week, Jimmy and Martin talk about a game changing episode, possibly. As well as the usual tangents and Martin annoying Jimmy. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? The Mighty Ducks (1992)

It's Jen's pick, so... The Mighty Ducks! Just in time for the sequel TV series streaming this week on Disney+, Jimmy and Jen chat about 90s hair, cartoon sound effects, the use of a certain word that means something worse in the UK as it does in the US and they ponder just what they are allowed to say these days, without offending anyone. Contains strong language and offensive words in the context of a 90s kids movie. Stay tuned to the end to hear what mess of a movie is next...
If I had a penny for every time I've heard this...

Fringe Division: 1.13- The Transformation

It's episode 13 and it's unlucky for some, especially Jimmy and Martin as it's their shortest episode so far. And they still find time to mess around and tangent about things such as Deep Space 9 and Jimmy's other podcast. Oh and a series regular has their final episode and Jimmy and Martin don't realise. Will they bring it up next week? Probably not. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? The Lost Boys (1987)

 Jimmy and Jen return to the 1980s and the movies of Joel Schumacher with this feature length soundtrack promo. They talk about useless female characters, pointless sex scenes bad IMDB trivia and Jimmy explains what MTV used to be, back in the 80s. Stay tuned to the end to learn what movie is next. Contains strong language. 

Sigh, remember video stores?

Fringe Division: 1.12- The No-Brainer

Jimmy and Martin have a natter about episode 12 of Fringe. For a change, Jimmy is grossed out while Martin doesn't care and discover what they were originally going to call the podcast. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? My Girl (1991)

So, after three episodes of trashing movies and their creators, we decided to go for something that is actually good this week. And yes, that means Jen picked something she wanted to watch again and talk about. And talk we do and things get a tad emotional. Also, Jen learns what Jimmy's pick for next week is...

A-dor-able...

Fringe Division: 1.11- Bound


 It's mid-season premiere time on Fringe and Jimmy and Martin think it's kind of... meh. Olivia is a badass, Walter plays with a slug thing and things move pretty quickly. A tad too quickly for us but we have a good chat about it anyway. A chat that wanders into tangents about The X-Files and the X-Men movies. Total coincidence that both franchises have an X in them, honest. Contains strong language and adult humour because Jimmy says a naughty thing.

So, What's the Problem? Sixteen Candles (1984)

 


Jimmy and Jen dive back into the world of John Hughes with what just very well be his most problematic movie ever. We're talking homophobic slurs, sexism, ableism and goofy Asian stereotypes, folks. Strap yourselves in.  And at the end of the episode, we'll announce what movie we're covering next. Contains strong language. 

Urge to kill, rising...

Fringe Division: 1.10- Safe

 It's episode ten of Fringe, folks and it's a doozy! This is how you do a mid-season finale.  It's also our longest episode yet and Jimmy and Martin go over the plot as usual as well as chat about visual effects and suit sizes. It all makes sense, honest. Contains strong language.
