Episode 118: Phantom vs. Les Mis

August 7, 2017

Think of us. Think of us fondly as we debate plays. We've brought along our special guest, Brittney, to pit The Phantom of the Opera against Les Misérables. At the end of the day/episode we'll declare which musical is best by discussing such categories as best characters, catchiest song and greatest (biggest?) legacy. Joel goes full theatre geek, Kent becomes everyone's favorite mutant uncle and all we ask of you is to listen to the music of the night and to play along.

Who are we? Who are we? We're Baconsaaaaaaaaaaale!


Episode 117: Ranking Non-Disney Animated (Tiergully: The Last Rankforest)

July 31, 2017

Somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight, someone's ranking movies and tiering them tonight. And in this episode, Baconsale is discussing the animated features that didn't come from Disney. These are films from Don Bluth Productions, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination Entertainment, 20th Century Fox, Sony and more. Joel can't stop singing, Kent can't stop making out during boring movies and Jacob puts the whole show in alphabetical order.

Press play and see if we think everything is awesome!


Episode 116: Best Westerns

July 24, 2017

Well, howdy there, pardner! Baconsale is ready to rustle up a discussion about some of our favorite Western movies. However, Kent and Joel aren't as well-versed in the world of cowboys, Indians, sheriffs, settlers, gamblers, bandits and bandanas (much to Jacob's delight), so they're also going to discuss the gaps in their knowledge and talk about the iconic Westerns they haven't seen.

So get your John Wayne impersonation ready and saddle up your horses. It's time to listen to the latest episode of Baconsale!


BaconBit: Dunkirk Review

July 21, 2017

Oh. Apparently Christopher Nolan directed another film, it seems? I guess we'll review it. Seriously, though, Kent has been waiting to review this movie since it was first announced two years ago. He's been so excited, he legally changed his name to "Kent Dunkirk." But will Nolan's latest project live up to his high expectations? And if Joel's opinion differs, will Kent murder him on the spot?

Press play and find out! The first 16 minutes are spoiler-free!


Episode 115: Cable, IMAX, Erase - The Revenge

July 17, 2017

Picking favorite movies is like picking favorite children for Baconsale, which is why we're playing another round of Cable, IMAX, Erase. In case you didn't hear the first episode, Jacob will present three movies and Kent and Joel will have to decide which movie they'll watch on repeat on TV, which movie they'll see once on the big screen and which one they'll delete from history. It basically turns into Joel and Kent torturing each other (SPOILER ALERT: Kent does eventually erase Batman v. Superman).

Hurry and press play because we may have ticked off John Wick, so this could be our last episode…


Episode 114: Spidey vs Spidey vs Spidey

July 10, 2017

Now that three different actors have played Spider-Man in the last 15 years, it's time for Baconsale to discuss who is the most amazing: Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire (a.k.a. Jerry Maguire). We'll debate who portrayed Peter Parker properly, which franchise featured the most fearsome foe and what movie moment made us the most misty-eyed.

Now that we've got all of that alliteration out of our system, press play and enjoy this episode!


BaconBit: Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

July 7, 2017

Baconsale! Baconsale! Does a BaconBit review whenever they feel like it! And today we're reviewing the latest Avengers-- er Web-Slinger movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Kent, Joel and Jacob all saw the film this time and they're ready to say whether this sequel to a franchise (that's also a reboot) is worth watching.

And don't worry, webheads, the first 11 minutes are spoiler-free, so press play!

Episode 112: Soundtrack and Feels 2: The Soundtrackoning

June 26, 2017

Listen up! Baconsale is once again discussing their favorite scores, soundtracks and composers! Jacob will give Kent and Joel a category (such as most overrated soundtrack, best electronic score and guilty pleasure) and they must each pick a winner for that category. Plus, as an added twist, they are not allowed to pick any of the music they used in our last Soundtrack & Feels episode (Episode 74).

Joel makes Kent angry, Kent is a strangely predictable hipster and the whole thing comes off as a cheap knock-off of Braveheart, to be honest. Enjoy!
