Episode #375 – Short Circuit 2, with Ben Hosley

Episode 275 is ALIVE! We keep raiding Blank Check for some of our finest guest stars, which is why it was only a matter of time before we’d add “America’s finest film critic,” Ben Hosley, to that list. And Ben asked if he could do “that stupid robot movie from the 80’s,” and following a brief round of “Is THIS the Film?, Dan figured out that Ben was asking for Short Circuit 2. Thus it twas spake. Thus it came to pass.

FH Mini 59 – Missed That Movie: Virtual Obsession

It may SOUND like a Cinemax film from the 90s, but Virtual Obsession was actually a 3-hour ABC television EVENT, starring Peter “Caterpillar Brow” Gallagher, Mimi Rogers, and Bridgette Wilson, and directed by Mick “I Know Stephen King” Garris.

Episode #374 – Firestarter (2022)

Somehow one of the most boring movies we’ve EVER covered on the show + Dan recovering from Covid-19 = an especially raucous episode of The Flop House.

Episode #372 – Old

Despite its relative financial success and reviews that are more “mixed” than bad, M. Night Shyamalan has become such a FH all-star, that we had to check out Old: The Beach that Olds People. (As Dan is fond of saying, “Don’t get hung up on our name.”) Unsurprisingly, it gave us a ton to chew on. Please don’t be mad at us just cause we don’t think it’s a masterpiece, Blank Check buddies. Maybe y’all should skip this one. Everyone else in the world — enjoy!

Episode #371 – The King’s Daughter

What’s this? An IN-PERSON episode? That’s right! Elliott was in town to officiate a wedding, so we took a little time to get together in person and record an episode for y’all. And what movie did we pick for such a special occasion? How about something that showed up on basically every “worst movies” list of last year — something that sat on the shelf for half a decade and has been in development for 4x that? You guessed it! We tackled Pierce Brosnan’s Wig Party aka The King’s Daughter!
