How does one top a 1918 classic such as “The Torpedo Pirates”? You build on top. Sherlock is introduced to a new mystery when someone approaches him and thanks him for solving their case. There’s an imposter Sherlock about, a Nerlock if you will, and they have keys to Sherlock’s memory palace. Meanwhile a sick dinosaur Watson just tries to get some rest and not mess everything up.

BMMI Guest Ep 13: Apollo: God of Music: The True Story of How Music Became Music (with Special Guest Battery Guy Si!)

Before there were music biopics, there was music. And before there was music, there was Apollo. This week’s episode not only features our longest title to date, but dives into the sordid true story of the birth of music. All the moments of music history pale in comparison. Ozzy Osbourne biting the head off a bat? Apollo slashes a snake dead on stage! Bob Dylan discovering electric guitar? We’ve got Zeus zapping lightning bolts into Apollo’s lyre! I don’t recall any battle scenes in Rocketman or Bohemian Rhapsody either, which this film has in spades. Bill Hader stars as Apollo, and he’s accompanied by Stephen Root playing the mighty papa Zeus as well as Brad Pitt reprising his role of Achilles, Apollo’s hated rival.

Guest starring Battery Guy Si from Technophobia Podcast!

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

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).
