BMMI Episode 090: Lost in the Shuffle

What if it took you a million tries to win a tournament of the world’s favorite collectable card game? What if you could do all of those million tries in one day, one groundhog’s day? This movie is a groundhog’s day with a twist. Every time the deck is shuffled the game is randomized, no memorizing your opponent’s cards or moves. Maybe if you can escape this never-ending day you might just get good enough to beat that kid at the card shop.

BMMI Episode 089: Piggy Mun Mun’s Big Break

piggymunmun_poster.jpg

This might look familiar to our podcast artwork, but that’s by design. Meet our new mascot, Piggy Mun Mun! A piglet that can beat up any Minion, anywhere, any day of the week. In Piggy Mun Mun’s debut movie, this cute little piglet keeps being overlooked as a true film auteur until it cuts up its real live film reel friends into a masterpiece it can trot around town. Of course, this poster shows Piggy Mun Mun before its emergency redesign (five foot long legs, film projector snout, film reel slots, seven eyes, a spooky ghost sheet it can’t get off, and a squeal that will haunt you for days).

It’s our unofficial 100th episode! We take the opportunity to use this anniversary to properly express our deep seated obsession with skeletons and their absence on the silver screen.

It’s finally here. What everyone has been waiting for. The bound-to-be-a-hit low-budget Game of Thrones knock-off, Game of Chairs. The gang’s all here: Lady with snake eggs incubating in her desk, bald gossipy guy, gossipy guy with little fingers, long-haired man with dog, and the 150 other employees we all know and love but sometimes forget the names of. Watch as the office crumbles, alliances are born and broken, blood is spilled and people are kicked down holes, all so one may sit upon the only comfortable chair in the office.

Introducing the next logical step in the A Dog’s Purpose franchise: A Grandma’s Purpose (or A Skeleton’s Purpose). In moments of hardship or peril, all throughout their life, a person finds a kind grandmotherly type stepping in from out of the woodwork to do what grandmas do best–Knit a warm scarf, bring them some milk and cookies, save them from a rock climbing accident, bring them some calcium supplements, and making sure they go their entire life without breaking any bones. Sometimes a grandma’s purpose and a skeleton’s purpose align. This film can be seen from either viewpoint; the grandma who possesses the skeleton or the skeleton that dwells within the grandma.

BMMI Episode 082: Bread: The Most Boring Man in the World

Take a moment and picture the most generic, dull, and utterly humdrum person that you can bother to imagine. Do you have a clear picture? Well, that person doesn’t hold an untoasted piece of white bread to Bread: The Most Boring Man in the World.

When the world depends on Bread to make anything but the most boring decision he somehow inexplicably, as if called by the God of Boredom itself, decides to intake another sitcom rerun. Fans of The Matrix will notice the subtle and constant homage of the red pill/blue pill scene that is featured heavily throughout the film.
