2.25 Green Lantern

Our final Blockbuster Bomb lands right on Ryan Reynolds’ head, in the super hero movie flop that was meant to kick off the DCCU. A few lazy ideas lifted from Geoff Johns’ modern take on Hal Jordan, result in an overstuffed, convoluted mess of a plot. CGI body suits and Star Sapphire’s depiction are not the only mortal sins of this 2011 adaptation. Slip on your power ring of choice and join us in our intergalactic journey through Space Sector 2814, this is the Green Lantern!

Joining us is special guest, Arlen Harrow! Editor-in-chief of Los Harrow and co-host of the Phantom Zone.

2.24 The 13th Warrior

Arabian poet, Antonio Banderas, fools around with the caliph’s wife and gets promoted to lord of the dessert. During his trek, he runs afoul of a Viking camp where Granny Van Daam dubs him the 13th warrior of a quest that will lead to certain death. Now he must band together with a rough-and-tumble group of lovable bearded bad-asses to defend a village from a (seemingly) unstoppable supernatural force. Brush up on your old Norse, ask the smithy to fashion you a scimitar, and grab a piece of your fallen comrade to munch on because we’re about to crack open the lost ancient text of The 13th Warrior.

Charge up your outdated robot bodyguard, make a martini in your mouth, and pour one out for Eddie Murphy’s career because we’re about to moonwalk across The Adventures of Pluto Nash.

2.21 Reign of Fire

Only dragon slayer Matthew “Van Zan” McConaughey and his small army of rootin’-tootin’ Americans can shift the odds in humanity’s favor.

2.12 Howard the Duck

Howard is just your average anthropomorphic duck living on a parallel Earth—aptly named Duckworld. That is, until Dr. Jeffrey Jones foolishly uses the Buch-cannon™ to beam him to Cleveland. Stranded, Howard teams up with local rocker Lea Thompson and Tim “Museum Janitor” Robbins to search for a way home, and possibly some hairless ape fornication. Oh yeah, then Jeffrey Jones gets possessed by a demonic “Dark Overlord of the Universe” that turns him into Emperor Palpatine for some reason! Practice your Quack Fu, do some toot, and grab this month’s issue of Playduck, because we are about to get shot through space via Lazyboy with Howard the Duck.

Grab your grandpa’s medallion, a fifty-five dollar glass of whiskey, and cock those fist guns, because this ain’t no ordinary puppet show—it’s BUNRAKU!

2.8 Jurassic Park

Meet John Hammond, an old man who doesn’t know what to do with his fortune, so he decides to clone some dino DNA and open a theme park. He flies in power couple and dinosaur experts, Sam Neil and Laura Dern, along with chaos theorist, Jeff Goldblum, and a blood-sucking lawyer to prove to his investors that the park is completely safe. Once there, everything goes to shit, after a disgruntled Newman shuts all the power off on the island, so that he can steal some T-Rex blood for the competition. With prehistoric powerhouses roaming free, can life, uh, find a way? Tie your seat belts ends together, slap on your night vision goggles, and pop open your can of shaving cream, because no expense will be spared while we make our way through Jurassic Park. Hold on to your butts!

1.26 The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course

CRIKEY! Steve Irwin is just trying to make a documentary about all the dangerous and beautiful wildlife of Australia, and then a bunch of studio execs tell him no one is going to pay for that, so they make up a shitty story about a top secret satellite that gets eaten by a crocodile. With pointless side plots, a lost fifth Baldwin brother, and the Bumpuses dogs, two completely different films collide into a true blunder from down under. Grab your best sheila, a couple sticks of dynamite, and some anti-venom because we are about to bag and tag The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course.
