  • Not every movie wraps up with a neat little bow on the end. Some leave you asking "what the f@#$?!" We're here to find the silver lining in the latter. Join Dustin, Mallie, and Nathan every Monday as we try to find the light at the end of the tunnel for some of cinema's bleakest endings.

    We've hinted at it all season long, but in our Season 5 finale, we're going out strong with a film that is absolutely perfect; it's John Carpenter's The Thing from 1982. A tale of paranoia, toxic masculinity, and great facial hair that just feels timeless. Is it Carpenter's best movie? Was Childs assimilated? What happened to Nauls? How many times can we say the words "the Thing" in one episode? We have answers to all of these questions and more in this jam packed episode. Plus, our pitch for a Saturday morning cartoon based on The Thing, remaking this film with the cast of Mean Girls, the wild life of Wilford Brimley, and more are all points of discussion in our final send off of the year before our long hibernation in the arctic.

    Happy holidays! See you in Season 6.

    The Thing (1982) stars Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, Richard Dysart, Richard Masur, Donald Moffat, David Clennon, and Keith David. Directed by John Carpenter.

    If you can believe it, there's a new Matrix movie on the horizon, so we thought we'd take a look back at one of the more maligned entries in the franchise with 2003's The Matrix Reloaded. Is it a worthy follow up to one of the greatest films of all time? Or is it simply too big for its own good? We'll jack in to decide once and for all. Plus, we unveil HBO's newest tagline, discuss what the city of Zion must smell like, read what is quite possibly the most insane IMDb "trivia" we've ever seen, and, of course, we'll talk about Jet Li's The One (a lot) with special guest John "Houzer' Smith!

    The Matrix Reloaded stars Keanu Reeves, Harold Perrineau, Carrie-Anne Moss, Nona Gaye, Gloria Foster, Jada Pinkett Smith, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne, Hugo Weaving, and Monica Bellucci. Directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski.

    We’re in new territory this week as we’re covering our first animated feature film, and what better movie to talk about than 1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm? It’s better than you remember it being and deserves to be in your top Batman films. From the sexual chemistry between The Joker and a lunch meat chopping robot to Alfred’s incredible cheekiness (sleepiness?), we’ll cover the full spectrum of this great movie. Plus, topics such as whether or not Free Guy is technically a movie, going to the theater on Christmas Day, and why Nathan has the coolest dad are all packed into this fantastic episode with special guest and Adventures in Poor Taste’s co-owner David Brook!

    You can check out the Adventures in Poor Taste Comics Podcast on Apple Podcasts.

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm stars Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Dana Delany, Hart Bochner, and Abe Vigoda. Directed by Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm.
