1. The RotCast Episode #202 - Apes, Robots, and Bigfoot Oh My

    Someone STILL hasn’t watched Orange is the New Black so we crammed this full show with movies. Two of them are in theaters currently and one of them was on VoD. Only one of them is worth spending money on.

  4. The Rotcast Episode #199 - Summer “Blockbusters”

    It’s a full show of The Rotcast, and we run down three of the top summer films for 2014. One of them is actually really good! Also, we recorded this one late at night and my energy levels slowly depleted as the show went on. I also sound really Southern this time, so if that turns you off tune in to episode 200 where I suppress my accent like a mother.

  5. The RotCast Digital Deluxe Edition #2 - Total Schlock

    Here’s something special for you freeloaders. Our second edition of DDE focused on notoriously bad films, 5 of them to be exact. We played a little improv game at the end of each review and you can find out who’s good at it and who’s not. Originally this would cost you $2 (cheap!) but since we aren’t doing DDE anymore we thought it would be a good idea to release them all over the next few months. Plus, we don’t have a regular episode of the show coming out for a few weeks so this will hopefully tide you over.

    • 00:00:00 – Intro
    • 00:08:56 – Troll 2 (special guest George Hardy)
    • 01:02:16 – Birdemic (special guest Eric Swartz)
    • 01:48:25 – The Room (special guest Philip Haldiman)
    • 02:34:22 – Plan 9 From Outer Space (special guest Maila Nurmi aka Vampira)
    • 03:07:26 – Ishtar (special guest Dustin Hoffman)
    • 03:35:30 – Outro

  6. The RotCast Minisode #11 - Digital Kick

    This time on The RotCast we talk about a wicked action sequel that should do just as well on Netflix as the first one. Seriously, if you just want to read the show notes and not listen to the episode, The Raid 2 kicks ass and you should see it if you’re into action movies.
