George of the Jungle (1997) - Snidely Whiplash did nothing wrong

George of the Jungle (1997) - Snidely Whiplash did nothing wrong

July 27, 2022

Dan and Brian have a lot to unpack this week on The Goods: the tradition of blockbuster family comedies, cartoon adaptations, Jay Ward, Brendan Fraser, and the Bo Diddley beat. Why are three children with a horse? Did Snidely Whiplash do anything wrong? Is the narrator God? Is Christopher Showerman a real person?

Join as they review three films -- George of the Jungle, Dudley Do-Right, and George of the Jungle 2 -- in an especially silly episode of The Goods: A Film Podcast.

Zombies 3 (2022) / Scream (2022) - Do we gotta?

Zombies 3 (2022) / Scream (2022) - Do we gotta?

July 20, 2022

Dan and Brian check back in on two franchises they'd previous reviewed, the first of the show's "Do We Gotta?" topic revisits.

First, Brian talks through the bizarre, campy finale to the Zombies trilogy of Disney tween musicals. Does the film bring proper closure to the supernatural racism metaphorical universe, or is it best avoided?

Then, Dan breaks down "Five Cream," the new Scream movie. They talk through the questionable villain revelations, the themes of toxic fandom, and overlaps with previous Scream entries.

The Great Race (1965) - It’s a pie, pie, pie, pie fight

The Great Race (1965) - It’s a pie, pie, pie, pie fight

July 13, 2022

Brian shares with Dan an epic-scale comedy from the mid-60's, a classic "roadshow" style film complete with intermission and pie fight. Join as they parse Jack Lemmon's all-in performance as the Professor Fate, the dated politics, and other memorable examples of the large-scale racing-themed movies. Dan recasts the movie in 2022, and Brian shares the film's prodigious personal influence on him.

Bears (2014) vs. Grizzly Man (2005) - Amazing world of bears

July 6, 2022

"Violent Ends" is back! Our semi-recurring format -- where we compare and contrast two movies with similar set-ups but very different conclusions -- gets a bear-themed outing. Dan shares two documentary excursions to Katmai National Park in Alaska to document some ursine friends.

First up is Bears, the 2014 family-friendly Disneynature film, where (surprise!) John C. Reilly narrates a year in the life of three bears. Then, Dan and Brian discuss the tragic fate of Timothy Treadwell, the bear-obsessed conservationist as they talk through the Werner Herzog documentary portrait Grizzly Man.
