Do you dare listen to this BOP n' A Tragedy commentary track, as your thr3e hosts explore their love/hate/love relationship with Scott Beck's disorienting cult classic?

    It's time to scream the lyrics to Hotel California incoherently at some Razor Fisted assassins, because the BOP Crew is harnessing the power of magical microphones found in a cave thousands of years ago in order to gush about Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings! The kung-fu/superhero/fantasy we didn't know we always wanted. Simu Liu, Tony Leung, and Still Going By Awkwafina round out Marvel Studio's best cast in years, but are they given the screen time they deserve, or  is this a roster of Koraths and Malakeths? And is there anything at all to Death Dealer besides the cool mask? What's pulled from the 70s comics and what's been left on the problematic curb?

Join Mike and Jamie as they explore the basement of their local seaside gothic castle/child hospital to uncover the spoiler-y secrets of James Wan's stream-today sleeper, MALIGNANT.

    Are you ready to travel unto the woods, back to a bitter American winter in 1843, and have a meal with fundamentalist Christians? Yeah, we wouldn’t be excited either, but what we are excited about is getting an early look at THE LAST THING MARY SAW, a current festival buzzer and premiering on Shudder in 2022. Mike and Jamie sit down for a spoiler free gab-fest on the esoteric horror film from filmmaker Edoardo Vitaletti, the strengths of its mood and atmosphere, fables of otherness and oppression, growing pains of first time filmmakers, and how we all forget how good an actor Rory Culkin is.

  • KING KONG VS GODZILLA Commentary Track


    The famous dust-ups of history: Ford vs. Ferrari! Ali vs. Fraiser! Niles vs. Fraiser! All meaningless compared to the rivalry that cracked open the very Earth in 1962, concerning one King Joseph Kong III and the kaiju who'll fry you, Godzilla! A cinematic empire was spawned the day fur-suit met scale-suit, and IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN IN YOUR LIVING ROOM! Before you see their modern-day rematch, revisit the very first clash of these bitin' titans with The Crew's ringside commentary! BOP n' A Movie takes you back to a simpler time, when Godzilla was still a villain, giant apes could still drink, and monster movies were vessels for cultural satire. Who will be left standing, Honda's skyscraper-stomper or Fay Wray's ex-bae? Will the lizard king humble the prime primate, or will the ape-lord show him the hate-sword?
