Episode 133: Just Us Talking Justice League

November 20, 2017

Today on Baconsale, SuperJoel, Wonder Jacob and BatKent are reviewing the new Justice League movie. Wait, seriously? How did we let Kent talk us into doing another full episode of a DC film instead of a BaconBit? Regardless, the first half of the episode is spoiler-free, so you can listen to it even if you haven't seen the film. And the review evolves into a discussion of the future of the DCEU, Rotten Tomatoes bias and the hypocrisy of Kent Dunn.

BaconBit: Thor: Ragnarok Review

November 3, 2017

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! It’s time for Baconsale to review the third Thor film. Therefore, will they think this movie is a thrilling full-throttle theater experience? Or is the god of thunder too thick, though the plot is thin? Will Kent thoroughly go for the throat of this throwaway movie? Or will his feelings thaw toward Marvel? Can Thor thrive there at the box office? Have we thought of a thousand th- words to throw into this description? Yes. Yes we have. It’s a thankless job, but someone has to do it.

Press play! The first 19 minutes are spoiler-free!


Episode 130: Choose Your Own Zombie Apocalypse

October 30, 2017

For our final episode of this Halloween season, Baconsale tried something a little different. We gave Jacob complete control of the show, and he created a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure/Dungeons-and-Dragons style game that places Kent and Joel in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. It is up to each of them to make the right decisions to stay alive. WARNING: The descriptions get pretty gruesome at times.

Who will survive? Who will die? Who will run into tree branches like an oafish mammoth? Press play to find out.


Episode 129: Supernatural Superfan

October 23, 2017

My, my, how the tables have turned! On this episode, it's Jacob's turn to be the superfan as we discuss the TV show Supernatural, and he must try to convince you, the listener to watch it. Kent already thinks Sam & Dean are hot & sexy beefcakes, but Joel can't stop talking about Gilmore Girls.

So hop in your black 1967 Chevy Impala, crank up the classic rock and press play, because everybody dies eventually!


BaconBit: Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) Review

October 20, 2017

Listener, you brought this upon yourself. You recommended that we watch Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween and we made the horrible mistake of following your suggestion. Joel does his best to contain his seething hatred for this movie, but it all comes spilling out. Luckily, though, Kent is there to give it the highest rating of the three members of Baconsale.

The first half is spoiler-free...but, frankly, this movie was spoiled before we ever got to it. Press play if you want to hear some ranting and raving.


Episode 128: Season of the Pitch

October 16, 2017

WARNING! This episode is not for the faint of heart! Kent decided to redeem one of his pitch shows, so he and Joel are ready to share three ideas for new Halloween movies: one reboot, remake or sequel, one adaptation and one original horror film. The pitches start off in traditional Baconsale fashion—lighthearted ridiculousness—but then the stories take a dark turn and get seriously scary. One even forces Joel to shut the blinds in the studio and sing happy songs in his head.

Press play. . .if you're not too frightened. . .


BaconBit: Horror Express (1972) Review

October 13, 2017

It's time for Baconsale to review one of the most anticipated horror movies of the year. . .45 years ago. Actually, Horror Express, starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, flew pretty far under the radar, but our listener, Tom, is a fan of this cult sci-fi thriller. He recommended the film to us, so Kent, Joel and Jacob watched it. Now, we're ready to discuss it. But don't worry, the first 11 minutes of this episode are spoiler-free!

Johnny Necropolis says press play now!
