Episode 213: No More Merciful Beheadings (Part 2)

Saturday, August 14th, 2021

The Geek Salad crew is once more joined by the always wonderful Em from the Verbal Diorama podcast as they discuss some of the movies of 1991 that didn't crack the top 15 at the box office in episode 213: No More Merciful Beheadings (Part 2).

Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and Em chat about such excellent offerings like Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey and The Rocketeer, but also some lesser regarded titles like Hudson Hawk and Soapdish. Listen in and maybe you'll hear about a film that you might not have heard of before.

Episode 182: Be Excellent to Batarangs (part 1)

Wednesday, August 7th, 2019

The year 1989 ended up being one hell of a year for movies. From Tim Burton's first Batman film to Ghostbusters II, this year really gave us some true gems, as well as some lesser but still memorable hits. And here to go through some of those films is Geek Salad with episode 182: Be Excellent to Batarangs (part 1).

Join Andy, Mike, and Joe as they go overlong in discussing this banner year for films. So overlong, that the episode had to be split up into two parts. Here in part 1, the crew goes over what films were the highest grossing domestic releases for the year. They answer such questions as "Wait, numbers 3 and 4 are what now? Really?" and "Just how many of these top 10 films had Rick Moranis in them?"

Episode 171: The Green/Bonham-Carter Chronicles

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

There are a number of unique and stylized directors in Hollywood, but very few are so stylized that they have adjectives made of their names. One of those lucky few is Tim "Burton-esque" Burton, and the Geek Salad crew examines the many ups and downs of his career in episode 171: The Green/Bonham-Carter Chronicles.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they discuss the oeuvre of Mister Burton, from his debut in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure all the way to next year's Dumbo. Did he ever reach higher than Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands? Did he ever fall lower than Planet of the Apes? Many a good natured debates will be had.

Episode 169: A Graveyard Smash

Monday, October 29th, 2018

Most people will agree that Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and Lon Chaney Jr were not Academy Award quality actors. However, no one can doubt that they cemented their place in Hollywood history by bringing to life some of the most iconic movie monsters of all time. So, to honor their accomplishments, the Geek Salad crew are devoting their 11th annual Halloween episode to discussing the highs and lows of the Universal Monster movies in episode 169: A Graveyard Smash.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they chat about Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, and many more of the Universal monster films of the 1930s and on, including the times when they all met Abbot & Costello. So turn on all the lights, grab a silver cross and lighted torch, and join along with the Geek Salad crew in wondering when they'll get around to making The Detached Duplex of Dracula.
