Elijah Brubaker and Robin Morrison examine the sequel to Lethal Weapon, imaginatively named Lethal Weapon 2. It’s a perfectly serviceable Lethal Weapon movie and all kinds of crazy shenanigans happen. There’s a nailgun massacre, an adult baby, toilet bombs and apartheid. Spoiler, I just gave away the entire god damned movie. Krugerrands!

Hey, you dumb dicks, it’s your best friend, Elijah Brubaker. If you’ve subscribed to the podcast I co-host with my stalwart compatriot, Robin Morrison, I’ve got some news. Due to some technical snafu or internet wangdang that came my way, the feed wasn’t being read by Itunes anymore. A real bummer, as we’ve amassed literary tens of listeners over there.
Everything has been patched up. I’ve splortched chewing gum over all the cracks and duct-taped that mamma-jamma to kingdom come. Unfortunately, in the process of getting the show back on the air, I was forced to create a new feed and rejigger things extensively.
What that means for you is, you’ll have to go here and resubscribe to the Movie Show. Sorry for the hassle.
Once there, be sure to rate and review the show. just lie and say we’re awesome. 5 star reviews help the show move up in the ranking and makes it easier for new listeners to find us.

Head on a pole
Elijah Brubaker and Robin Morrison talk through the seminal 80’s action movie, Lethal Weapon. Comparisons to Die Hard are inevitable. both movies were released within a year of one another, both are action-y, christmas-in-LA movies and both feature a love affair between a deranged, violent lunatic and an old, wise, black gentleman. Unlike Die Hard however, you can’t really boil the story of Lethal Weapon down into anything that would make sense to someone unfamiliar with the film. It’s like describing a dream.
“Oh man, so… this murderous dude with awesome hair lives on the beach and there’s an old black guy having a birthday party in his bathtub and Gary Busey is there and then a house explodes.”
This movie, directed by Dick Donner, stars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover… but you knew that already. Everyone has seen this movie. Babies have seen this movie.
Here’s Vivian Kubrick’s short and sweet documentary about the making of her father’s movie, The Shining.
This one has been sitting in the hopper for a bit. Robin (Optimus) Morrison and Elijah (Shia LeBeef) Brubaker finally get around to talking about a Michael Bay movie. The votes were tallied, palms were greased and we finally settled on which Michael Bay movie was worthy of our attention… It was the Rock, all the feedback we received was mostly about the Rock. We had a few votes for Pearl Harbor and Elijah kept insisting that the Island was worth another shot but screw it, we went with Transformers 4: It Got Dinobots. So here’s a quick intro to the episode because this movie is SOOOOO long and Elijah and Robin talk about the whole thing. There’s also a bit where the fellas talk about Anaconda (like I said, this one has been cooling for a while)
Anyway, enjoy… ya facking queer.
