#2: The Worst Video Game Movies, Round One: King Pooper Vs. Uwe Boll

Download episode here.

Episode Description: This month, the Bad Idea boys tackle a very bad idea when they decide to examine the bottom of the video-game-movie bell curve—the Ron-Jeremy-starring adult feature Super Hornio Brothers, about which the nicest thing that can be said is that it ends, eventually. Before that, though, you have to endure bored early-’90s porno sex, incoherent plotting and a villain who sounds like Lambchop. After that, the films of Uwe Boll don’t look so bad—but there still generally terrible, and I try to explain to Simon why I kinda like them anyway. Then it’s on to the Netflix Grab-Bag, which coughed up Venus in Furs, a jazz-flavored bit of boring sputum with Jesús Franco’s name on it. Recorded in the quiet of my apartment (which means you’ll be able to hear us this time) and fueled by alcohol, the discussion encompasses sandy saxaphones, my issues with Carnival of Souls, the Germanic bemusement of Til Schweiger, and why Buck Adams is history’s greatest monster.
