This epic 1.5 hour podcast took podcast took two weeks to record and twelve years to publish, or at least that's what it felt like. THRILL as we rave over the Spider-Man reboot. CHILL with Tom Cruise backstage. And THRILL SOME MORE at the Total Recall remake.

Zeus tenatively predicts they'll recommend all three, but he's dead wrong! The Bros. immediately yawn rudely at The Lorax. Assemble The Avengers! Zeus subjects everyone to his the Tim Burton Curse story -- again -- and Mars calls Scarlett Johannsen flat-chested. You might as well just skip to 32:20, when they review Dark Shadows, a film no one seemed to like, but the Bros. thought was like a new Mars Attacks, only fangier.

John Carter is one of those movies where you start out trying to defend it and after 40 minutes realize you still came off fairly negative. But what of The Cabin in the Woods? Is it the new Within the Woods or the new Cabin Fever? Tune in and find out!

Zeus here. This is one of my favorite podcasts. Maybe it's because we get to goof around, or maybe it's the weird subject matter. Whatever the case, grab your binoculars -- and your tin foil cowboy hat -- 'cause we're about to combine bird watching, cowboys versus and aliens.

Bucket Bros. Bodyslam Podcast Episode #038 - Chronicle & Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D

It's another Double Slam! This time we cover Chronicle and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 3D. An awesome remake of Akira directed by Jar Jar Binks.

Bucket Bros. Bodyslam Podcast Episode #037 - Underworld: Awakening

Published: 2012-05-08 | Recorded: Sometime in 2011

Underworld: Awakening

Download MP3 Podcast (right-click link and save as).

While we recorded this bodyslam shortly after Underworld: Awakening vanished from theaters, we published it the day Awakening was released on DVD. Clever girl! This isn't so much a reboot as the dawn of a brave new trilogy, a dawn best watched from the shadows, least Kate Beckinsale turn to powdered ashes. In other words, if you've been holding out and haven't seen an Underworld film yet, this is a pretty good time to start.

I'm now encoding the Bodyslams using iTunes, because I did a bit of research and it's supposed to handle low, constant bitrates better than LAME. Let me know how it sounds.

P.S. Kudos for having particles.

Bucket Bros. Bodyslam Podcast Episode #036 - Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

Alvin and the Chipmunks attempt something closer to the classic 80s animated film than ever before! We liked it a lot better than the middle child of the Chipmunks franchise. But did we like it best of all? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT. >:(

P.S. Don't do anything we say in the podcast, except watch Chipwrecked. Especially if it involves going to a theater and doing something bad. Is joke! We kid!

Bodyslam Podcast Episode #035: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Bodyslam Podcast Episode #035: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

[NSFW] Download MP3 Podcast (right-click link and save as).

We're back! This was a recorded back in 2011, but don't let that stop you. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is out on DVD on June 12th. Should you watch it? LISTEN AND FIND OUT! (Forgive the crappy laptop microphone quality, things improve in coming episodes.)

P.S. Nerd Alert: I changed the somewhat confusing naming scheme from bbbodyslam_[date] to bodyslam_###, where ### is the episode number, because it was always confusing when an episode -- let's say this one -- was recorded in 2011, but the filename says 2012. Or whatever. This is how podcasts should be named! Deal!

Episode 027: Grown Up

The Bros. review Grown Ups, a surprisingly good Adam Sandler flick wherin the Waterboy rounds up all his old friends from Saturday Night Live and spends the weekend just having fun. We thought it was the funniest thing he's done in years. Naturally, the critics disagree, but that's why you listen to the Bodyslam and not the critics.

MacGruber & Prince of Persia: Sands of Time

Mars and Zeus take on two movies in a special double feature movie review. Mars says that MacGruber is the greatest movie of all time... perhaps? Zeus complains about Jake Gyllenhaal's creepy bedroom eyes. Both movies are spoiled, thoroughly.

James Cameron's Avatar: The Podcast! We like the movie a lot, but it's hard to tell from our grump-tastic podcast. Thrill as Zeus and Mars go on for like ten hours about how Avatar went on for like ten hours. And other stuff!

Poor Conan. Jay Leno has returned to the Tonight Show like that Tales from the Darkside episode about a zombie grandfather who refused to admit he was dead. What will become of our favorite redhaired talk show host? Mars and Zeus take a walk down memory lane and Zeus reveals how he once single-handedly kept Conan O'Brien on the air.

Note: Unlike the other episodes, this was recorded using a single Snowball microphone, so instead of passing it back and forth, we were able to interrupt each other. The Bucket Bros get their groove back next episode... when we review Avatar! Yeah, I know. Timely.
