Needless Things Podcast 165 – Orgazmo Needless Commentary

NT%2B165%2Bpic.jpg

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

Arian's birthday is in June, so he got to pick this month's legendary superhero film – Trey Parker's Orgazmo!

Perhaps not as well known as South Park, Team America, or Cannibal: The Musical, this film is not appropriate for anyone under the age of 17. Or over. It's an early example of Parker's obsession with Mormonism, and also with porn. Orgazmo is the story of an earnest young Mormon and his unwitting recruitment into the porn induistry. And also the world of crimefighting. Just watch it.

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Rad Ranger, Arian, and Ryan Cadaver gather in the Phantom Zone to offer up their thoughts on this 1986 tour de force!

Needless Things Podcast 143 – The Ice Pirates Needless Commentary

NT%2B143%2Bpic.jpg


Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

In the mysterious depths of Phantom Troublemaker’s psyche there exists a very special list of films from the 80s. These are categorized as “The HBO Movies”. Thirty years ago premium cable television wasn’t what it is today and the same rotations of a dozen or so movies would play regularly for months. Many of the films that shaped Phantom were part of that ages-old pattern and were seen many times over the course of that magical decade.

The Ice Pirates is one of those cherished movies. Starring Robert Urich and featuring cameos from the likes of Anjelica Huston, John Carradine, Bruce Vilanch(!) and even a babyfaced Ron Perlman, The Ice Pirates is an often overlooked piece of genre entertainment that blends science fiction, comedy, and swashbuckling action into an unforgettable outer space adventure!

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Rad Ranger, Arian Gulick, Ryan Cadaver, and special guest R.T. Ewell gather in the Phantom Zone to offer up their thoughts on this 1984 cult classic!

Needless Things Podcast 134 – ThanksKilling Needless Commentary

NT%2B134%2Bpic.jpg
 

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

It’s Thanksgiving break and there’s no better place to go than Crawberg for some sex, booze, and MURDER MOST FOWL! ThanksKilling is an ultra-low budget horror movie about a killer turkey and the “teens” that he’s after. It’s a rare combination of bad direction, bad acting, and puppetry that will liven up and family gathering.

Phantom Troublemaker is joined by The Rad Ranger and Arian (who chose this TURKEY) for this installment of Needless Commentary.

Grab your DVD, Blu-ray, or Betamax cassette and follow along at home as the gang share their thoughts about one of the greatest horror films of all time!
