Join us once again for the annual look back and selection of the Trailer Park Podcast Ultimate Lineup! We also invite Alita to be the headliner for episode eleventy-one and she will not stand by in the presence of evil whether it be shocking, wicked or vile. A milestone has finally arrived as we have our first ever Gyllenfulcrum and it is written and directed by Dan Gilroy who made Nightcrawler - will it be properly appreciated or will they finally realize that when it comes to Jake Gyllenhaal it's best to shut the fuck up and just say you're excited. The totter brings us Braid and it might surprise you as it is also horror but that's what you get in late January and February. Finally, in the five-hole is The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, yeah... you're just gonna have to click on the poster and watch this one. Stick around for a little Burden List redemption and the roundtable.
Join us as we give 110% for episode 110! Christian Bale also gives 110% by gaining 45 pounds and excess neck muscle to play Dick Cheney in Vice. Sony gave 110% when they tried to sell Holmes & Watson to Netflix after reportedly disastrous test screenings. Escape Room looks like a 110% version of Saw. Nicole Kidman is definitely giving 110% in her new film Destroyer in which the trailer describes her as a cinematic force. Finally, M. Night Shyamalan returns with Glass and let's be frank - the man is all about giving 110% all the god damn time. Will you give 110% by sticking around for the thick and juicy banter during the roundtable?
Join us as we explore the deep for episode 109 and evaluate whether Aquaman has any real value as a superhero. The Mule is an offensive description for a 90 year old man and is also in the Teeter. Piercing stars American Jon Snow and is the fulcrum from the director of The Eyes of My Mother. In the Totter is Vox Lux, starring Natalie Portman as a Lady Gaga character who is born to be a star. Spider-Man slings its' way into another five hole with Into the Spider-Verse, it looks like Spidey is gonna need the Gyllenhaal Mysterio bump to obtain that elusive headliner status. We also bring back the Court of Social Justice to talk about elder abuse and identifying as a Mer-Person.
It's a gentlemen's affair for episode 108 as we talk duels and "mansplain" to each other. In our headliner, the Drago family saga continues as they try to kill another Creed in Rocky 8. Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are in the teeter as they fight over who should be The Favourite. Hannah Grace's corpse possesses us in the fulcrum. Green Book is in the totter and it arrived with some awards chatter before Viggo dropped the N Word. The five hole might as well be called the bulls eye for 108 as Robin Hood closes it out.
Join us as we talk Flames and Stars and how to cope with the ups and downs of being a die hard hockey fan.
It's an all R-Rated romp for episode 107! Our headliner, Widows, is a heist movie but it's also about husbands and wives, and dead husbands, and possibly some dead widows. The teeter brings us an award winner out of south by southwest called Prospect, it's a Sci-Fi film and it stars Pedro Pascal in a live action Treasure Planet. The fulcrum for 107 is produced by JJ Abrams and it has nothing to do with the Clover-verse, it's called Overlord and it also has nothing to do with Call of Duty or Wolfenstein so just enjoy the AC/DC and rock out to this new World War 2 super soldier zombie Halloween expansion add on! The totter brings us another adventure of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider's Web. Claire Foy looks like a bad-ass female avenger who rights the wrongs of evil white men with white makeup on her face surrounded by snow. The five hole brings us The Front Runner starring Hugh Jackman and every supporting actor and actress you have liked from various TV shows and movies in the past 5 years. It's all about political scandal and the great man that can't keep his dick in his pants.
Join us as we talk Flames, Stars and Canucks and how to cope with the ups and downs of being a die hard hockey fan.
Heart & Soul
The Stars had a rough week so we try to help Amanda through the negativity. We also talk about how the Calgary Flames are going to win the Pacific division and how the Canucks won't be able to keep up their recent success.
Join Daniel, Nathan, Amanda and The Intern for episode 106! It's the annual Halloween horror spook-tacular! We check out the sequel to the original Halloween that ignores the rest of the franchise. Jamie Lee Curtis goes full Sarah Conner in a tale of vengeance against 61 year old Michael Myers who has managed to become faster and stronger than he was 40 years ago. In the Teeter we perform a magic act with Abrakadabra. The film stock is grainy, the zoom is sudden and steady, the makeup is loud and blue and you will have no idea what is going on when you listen to it (you should probably watch this one). Netflix brings us the fulcrum of the fulcrum, an honor only a few movies share. The movie stars Dan Stevens and is written and directed by the man behind the Raid franchise, Gareth Evans. Apostle is about a religious cult and a brother trying to save his sister from a gory and gruesome fate. The remake of Suspiria slots in at the totter position and everything about it looks awesome - all 2 hours and 32 minutes of it. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return in Slaughterhouse Rulez which involves a Harry Potter esque private school and a sinkhole that leads to Hell. It's a jam packed lineup of the best the horror genre has to offer in October of 2018. Stick around for the round table where we talk Sisters Brothers, Battle of El Royale, First Man and A Star is Born.
The sadness continues as we review the results from the previous week and look ahead to the daunting and eventual disappointment that awaits. We also discuss the Matheson suspension and try to talk Andy off the ledge.
It's early so we'll have to find things to talk about while we share our worry and concerns over the coming sadness of the 2018/19 season
We open this inaugural season of hockey talk by acknowledging our sadness, talking the 2018/19 season narratives and preparing for eventual disappointment.
Join the gang as we launch into orbit for TPP 105! That's right, out headliner for 105 is First Man starring a Canadian playing a legendary American. It seems to be a trend in Hollywood that the leading men need that push from the North to make shit happen. Speaking of making shit happen, Jake Gyllenhaal returns in consecutive episodes with Wildlife - a sure fire Oscar contender. We take a bite out of the fulcrum with Slice from A24 and Chance the Rapper and boy does it look "cheesy". A24 also brings us Gaspar Noe's latest offering to the film festival elite, a musical horror about a group of people getting violent and crazy on LSD. Finally in the five hole we have Bad Times at the El Royale which features an ensemble trapped in a storm at a hotel built at a crossroads.
Episode 104 has arrived and it could be the greatest lineup we've ever had on TPP. Too bad Venom is the headliner spoiling Jake Gyllenhaal's highly anticipated return in The Sisters Brothers. The fulcrum is Hellfest and it has a tough act to follow with the teeter bringing Jake back to the podcast. Hellfest also suffers abuse from the Rooster Teeth fanatics who assume that Blood Fest was an original idea that was somehow stolen by the Hellfest crew. The totter brings us the fourth remake of A Star is Born starring Lady Gaga and things really build emotionally at 1:47 in the trailer and if you're not careful it can manipulate you into being excited about this 2 hour and 15 minute epic directed by Bradley Cooper. The five hole brings us an amped up take on the Salem witch trials called Assassination Nation. Basically they inject it with a social media narrative and sprinkle it with The Purge. Stick around for the Roundtable for some fantastic banter and camaraderie.
Join the gang as we look forward to September because August is a dumpster fire of half measures and worry. The Predator is our headliner for episode 103 and please be advised that we're talking about the movie and not the Intern. White Boy Rick is in the teeter and might be a contender for an academy award but it's also a biopic about a 15 year old white kid who rats on people that makes you want to roller skate. The fulcrum is a home invasion flick called He's Out There and it looks like he might get in there as they try to get out of there. A Simple Favor is in the totter and the trailer is full of complicated mystery and perplexing drama. The Happytime Murders is the only August release to make the lineup and it sneaks into the five hole with muppets breaking bad all over the place.
The gang is feeling fresh as we enter into the second episode of our second season on Trailer Park Podcast with 102. Your mission, cool billion, should you choose to accept it - is to block out the hoity-toity cry baby Intern and engage what could be one of the most exciting action movies to hit the theatres in a long time. Mission Impossible Fallout appears to have it all - practical special effect stunts, Tom Cruise running full tilt at 56 years old and Henry Cavill who's mere presence has a strange effect on women and bears a striking resemblance to Nathan. The teeter stars John Cho as a father who is searching for his daughter by staying at home on his computer. For the fulcrum we get into the internet created phenomenon known as the Slender Man and we all agree that the potential is there to shock and amaze but as with most horror movies, we hesitate and wait for execution. In the totter we take a look at one of the new Netflix movies coming out called Extinction starring Michael Pena and Lizzy Caplan. There is a lot to like about the trailer for this alien invasion movie but there is also a lack of faith in Netflix and their ability to properly develop these large budget effect movies into something that will have a lasting impact. Will the infant child that has been playing in a sandbox of money eventually fall under some form of adult supervision? And finally, in the five-hole we take a look at the Jason Statham Megalodon movie - The Meg. Once thought to be a serious candidate to bomb at the box office in epic fashion, the trailer for this humongous shark movie makes it look like a lot of fun. We also try to rename the Intern in episode 102 and don't forget to stick around for the Roundtable.
Join Nathan, Daniel, Amanda and the Intern as we turn the page into triple digits. Yes, the search for the greatest movie trailer continues with episode 101. Will this lineup hold the answer? Will we finally find what we have been searching for? Dwayne Johnson leads the way with our headliner Skyscraper and it looks like his character in this movie also has a giant chest tattoo. Eight Grade is in the teeter and it is from A24 so get ready for some moping and whining from the twice bitten. The fulcrum for 101 has been a long time coming and it looks absolutely nuts as Nicolas Cage battles crazy evil in a genre bending gore fest. The totter brings us another festival darling in Sorry to Bother You and could be a fun movie about racism? is that a thing? Finally, in the five hole is Ant-Man and the Wasp and it may take all of us to talk the Intern into an excited and show him that there is joy on the other side of all of his anger and sadness. Stick around for the roundtable as we give you the verdict on Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom and Incredibles 2.
Join Nathan, Daniel, Amanda, Chelsea and The Intern for the centennial episode of Trailer Park Podcast. We drink in heavy amounts of nostalgia and play clips from a time when we all seemed to be happier people. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom headlines episode 100 which is a fitting tribute when considering the veiled threats regarding TPP's demise. Don't worry folks, they are spending over 180 million dollars on marketing and merchandising for this Jurassic branded movie and the dinosaurs aren't going anywhere. The teeter position is filled with a powerful film containing moving performances called Leave No Trace starring Ben Foster. The music in the trailer combined with the young actress, Thomasin McKenzie, crying to her father about there being something wrong with him should devastate you emotionally if you have a heart. It may also make you question where the mom is. The fulcrum for 100 comes to us from Lars Von Trier, who is known for making some pretty fucked up films, making a movie that follows a serial killer around for 12 years. The totter brings us the latest from A24 who is now on notice and must prove itself again which it might do with Under the Silver Lake starring Andrew Garfield. It's about a character who appears to be unemployed getting stoned and paranoid searching for a girl in the vast and complicated world of conspiracy theory. Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado plops into the five hole. It's written by the same person as the first movie, has Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro returning but yet there appears to be some pissy pants hesitation going on even though the action and music are satisfying and credible. Stick around for the round table as we celebrate 100 episodes of TPP.
Nathan and Andrew talk tennis and the 2018 French Open
