Episode #422 – Road House (2024)

FINALLY after suffering through all of those bad movies, we get a treat! Patrick Swayze’s Ro… what? What’s that we’re hearing? It’s the remake? Goddamn it. Well maybe Road House 2024 will have some charms of its own. I guess y’all will need to listen to find out.

FH Mini 100! – Elliott Looks Back

Elliott takes a look back at 100 Flop House minis, and that is absolutely the only thing that happens, and no special guest arrives with any particular fixation on sandworm-related science fiction.

Episode #421 – Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with Jamelle Bouie

Yet again, we steal a few hours Jamelle could be using to write something smart for The New York Times, to discuss his REAL passion: movies about hedgehogs. Yes, Sonic 2 was a big hit with mixed reviews, but how good is it really? The answer may not surprise you!

Episode #420 – Madame Web, with Zhubin Parang

We welcome our old friend Zhubin Parang back to the main feed after years of only joining us for our FlopTales RPG series (available as bonus content for Max Fun members: join here!) — and for such an auspicious return we had to pick an extra-special movie: Madame Web, which some have hailed as the “Cats” of superhero movies. Does it reach those heights? Who knows. But it’s surely the most enjoyably-silly of Sony’s Spider-Man without Spider-Man universe. We hope you enjoy it, and thanks to all who support us by becoming a member of Maximum Fun during this Max Fun Drive.

Episode #419 – Cat Person, with Hallie Haglund

Stuart was antipodes-bound, for his Australian rambles, when we taped this one, but fear not!

Episode #418 – Cool as Ice, LIVE

We’re gearing up for Max Fun Drive pretty soon (3/18-29), so as a reminder of why you love us so SO much, instead of a regularly-scheduled mini we’re dropping ANOTHER full live episode from our recent west coast tour! This one was taped at the Aladdin in Portland, in front of one of the hottest crowds we’ve ever been blessed with, discussing one of the silliest movies we’ve ever discussed — the Vanilla Ice starrer Cool As Ice!

Episode #417 – Exorcist: Believer

It takes a brave creative team to give Exorcist II: The Heretic a run for its money as worst “Exorcist” film, but at least part two was lovably batshit and a work of care and pearsonal vision, even if that vision was really weird. Exorcist: Believer on the other hand? Oof. You’ll have to listen to find out.
