So, What's the Problem? Dutch (1991)

 John Hughes is back, people and this time, he's brought Ed O'Neill with him. They talk about unlikeable characters but good actors and why violence isn't always the answer. Oh and Jimmy gets personal regarding replacement dads. Contains strong language. No, no, it actually is...

So, What's the Problem? Last Action Hero (1993)


Oh, Arnold, you always did enjoy poking fun at yourself, didn't you? This is THE ultimate movie for that, the movie that got destroyed at the Box Office by Jurassic Park. One of our duo loves this movie and the other is Jimmy.  They discuss the confusing world building and also chat about the Razzies for a bit. Contains strong language and stay tuned to the end to hear what our Thanksgiving episode will be about. 

Terrible, obvious fake explosion is obviously fake and terrible...

So, What's the Problem? Red Heat (1988)

It's movie two of Schwarzenegger season as we cover his second (though released first) movie of 1988. And it's totally different from Twiiiiins. This also marks Jen's second foray into the world of Walter Hill for the podcast. Did she like this better than 48 Hrs? Contains strong language and political views that may not match your own but that's okay, it's all good. Stay tuned at the end to hear what is Arnie movie number three. 

This was what sold Arnie on the script. Seriously.

So, What's the Problem? Twins (1988)

 It's the first movie of our Arnie season and Jen has picked Twiiiiiiiins! A movie neither had seen in decade. It's a deceptively light and fluffy family comedy that is actually occasionally dark and this week's discussion reflects that.  It's also a short episode this week as time was not on our host's side.  Contains strong language. 

I mean, maybe not the best example as the poster bicep is bigger than his head...

Drop the Pilot: The Elvira Show (1993)

 Jimmy and Tysto chat about the early 90s attempt to spin off Elvira into the world of sit-com. They'd already tried movies and comics, so why not? Sadly the gritty police procedural never happened. Our hosts also talk about Seinfeld and Friends, because, sit-coms! Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)


Happy Halloween, Guys and Ghouls! To celebrate the occasion, Jimmy and Jen chat about the embarrassing drunken brother of the Halloween franchise, Season of the Witch! They talk about terrible protagonists, pointless romances and have a chat about the franchise as well as others. Excuse our hosts if they seem "off" this episode, Jimmy was fighting a stomach bug and Jen had just woken up, given they were recording at 9am her time on a Saturday. Contains strong language. Stick to the end to hear what movie season (not month) is coming up on the podcast next. 

Jimmy loves this shot soooooo much...

So, What's the Problem? Scream 3 (2000)

 It's spooky season and what better way to celebrate it by covering a movie that sits at number 30 of 50 on Jimmy's "Least Favourite Films" list on Letterboxd. It's Scream 3, people! They discuss the new cast, script problems, bad story decisions and regretful hair choices. Contains strong language and spoilers for the franchise as well as speculation on the upcoming 5th movie. 


Hey, Scream 3...

So, What's the Problem? Bugsy Malone (1976)

 It's Jimmy's birthday and to celebrate, he gets to pick a move from the year of his birth that he watched as a kid. So, Bugsy Malone it is. It's a gangster movie where all the characters are played by kids and instead of guns with bullets, cream is a deadly weapon. And they have pedal cars! But does having kids play parts that are usually portrayed by adults, problematic? Listen to find out! Contains mild language. 

This kid grew up to direct the Elton John biopic, Rocketman...

Drop the Pilot- Back to Norm (2005)

 

Drop the whaaaaat? Yeah, that's right, we are back. Tysto and Jimmy pay tribute Norm MacDonald and what better way to do that than to crap on a failed pilot of his? They discuss each sketch as well as humour which leads to talk of British panel shows and both hosts seem to have a different definition of what makes someone "camp". Contains strong language and talk of suicide, as that is in the show in question.

So, What's the Problem? She's All That (1999)

 We're back and so are romantic comedies and the pinnacle of the genre from the 90s... Oh, wait, this isn't 10 Things I Hate About You, that movie's so good. Anyway, there's this, instead. We talk about the cast and its weak link, unnecessary scenes and just how good 10 Things I Hate About You is. It's so good, you guys.  Contains strong language and stay tuned at the end for what we're doing next week. 


Matthew, love you dude but...no...

So, What's the Problem? Starchaser: The Legend of Orin (1985)

Ooh, boy, it's one of those "how is this for kids?" movies and despite there being a lot we could talk about, this is a short episode. It's an odd one. As this is late, we shall no longer be having theme months but will have seasons instead. We explain more on the episode. Contains strong language. 

You know... for kids!

Fringe Division 2.5: Dream Logic

 Episode five is here... so hear us talk about Quantum Leap! Yeah, sorry folks, it's a dull episode of Fringe so Martin would rather talk about other things. Jump to about 12 minutes in if you want to hear about the actual episode. Other tangents include Masters of the Universe, including the new Netflix series, with no spoilers. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? The Care Bears Movie (1985)

Oh, dear. Jen and the podcast's very own Grumpy Bear, Jimmy, discuss this favourite from the former's childhood. And the latter just isn't having any of it. They talk about the cast, fawn over one in particular, Jen talks about the artist behind some of the bears and disbelieves Jimmy about the existence of a show from his past. Oh and Jimmy accuses the Care Bears of being stalkers, enjoy! Contains strong language. 


This movie could have been written today...and then just ended here...

So, What's the Problem? The Adventures of Mark Twain (1985)

 Episode two of Animated Month sees the very first (and probably only) Claymation movie to be covered on the show. It's a short one this week because... well, you'll see. Contains one use of strong language as Jimmy could just about restrain himself. For info on what is next in Animation month, listen to the end. 

This is nightmare fuel but so damn good...
