Hello there!

Velkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome.

This week we discuss one of our very favorite directors, Edgar Wright! With Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost having completed their Cornetto Trilogy this past weekend with The World's End (It's great, you should go see it), we discuss Wright's other works, and generally what makes his high-energy style tick. Along the ride, there are lots of blink-and-you'll-miss-it jokes and hidden bits of symbolism that make Wright's style unique and infinitely re-watchable.

So Join the Club in our tribute to Edgar Wright!

Opening: Hot Fuzz Dialogue/Here Come the Fuzz - Jon Spencer and the Elegant Too
Bedded throughout: Soundtracks to respective films
Closing: The Cornetto Megamix - Mike Relm

Albert went to Alamo Drafthouse's Cornetto Trilogy screening on Thursday night and had a blast!

Hello, everybody!

This time on The Lost Tapes, we riff Howard the Duck! Considered one of the worst flops of all time, Howard the Duck is a film adaptation of a then extremely popular Marvel comic of the same name, and one that we personally love. We compare the film to the comic; what they got right, what they missed, and where they REALLY went off the rails. 

So come sing along with the totally-not-forgettable theme song as we dive head first into Howard the Duck: The Movie!

(P.S. We're sure Cleveland is a lovely city to visit.)

Closing: Duck Hunt SSBC Remix by Leon

Hello and welcome!

We are back to revisit one of our favorite directors, Kevin Smith! It has been a while since either of us has caught up with the man, and figured it was high time we did just that. In this jumbo-sized cast, we delve into the (almost) complete filmography of the greatest director to come out of Jersey!

Needless to say, our EXPLICIT TAG is in full effect here; not for the squeamish. So if you're cool with that, sit back and enjoy our SMithcast!

Opening: "SModcast Theme"

Music throughout: Soundtrack cues from their respective films

End: "Jungle Love" by Morris Day and the Time
