Dinner for Fiends – The Dinner in the Woods

Dinner is served once again. More like a buffet this time given how much we have on our plates. Over a dozen movies to digest. Email for desert. And somewhere in between we’ll learn that Matt Fini has an irrational hatred of pants. On this edition we’ll debate the merits of The Cabin in the Woods and Dark Shadows.

We’ll discuss in depth Wrath of the Titans, Mother’s Day, The Asylum’s Air Collision, Area 407, and – somehow – the awful and thankfully obscure 1995 Denise Richards/Paul Walker sci-fi comedy Tammy & the T-Rex.

Seriously. Tammy & the T-Rex… How do we get on these tangents?

We also briefly touch upon The Hunger Games, The Raven, The Raid: Redemption, The Avengers, Lockout, and more.

Plus, we learn about Matt Fini’s aforementioned hatred of pants, Buz’s love for wearing bathrobes in public, Steve’s pendulum conundrum, and I explain why you’re only allowed to enjoy either The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises but not both.

Finishing things up is a batch of viewer mail that is only slightly more lucid than usual. Now go listen … then head on over to iTunes and give us a review, damn it!

    I’m the one asshole who only liked The Amazing Spider-man… yay?

    AWWW! :C

    I wanted to them to talk about ” Beyond the black Rainbow”, I haven’t heard almost any analysis about that movie. I loved it, so I wanted one, even one that destroyed it.

    Have they watched it yet?

    Can it be in the next DFF?

    • Masked Slasher

      I’m going to try and catch it before the next DFF, yes.

      It’s playing this weekend in Boston, and I’m going to make every effort to check it out.

    Correction Steve, Willie Loomis was not the werewolf in the original Dark Shadows tv show, it was Quentin Collins.

    • The Woman In Black

      Damn! You’re right! It was my faulty memory that gave Steve his info. For some reason I was thinking it was Willie and not Quentin. Chris Jennings (Quentin’s great-grandson) was one, too.

  • Genrewriter

    Great podcast as usual, guys. Glad I passed on The Raven. Sounds like I missed quite a lot of nothing.

    • Masked Slasher

      I don’t know. I really want to see it now. If only to know what the hell Creepy was talking about with regards to the “implausible pendulum”.

      • LifeMi

        Hey Matt, you remember the pendulum from SAW V? It looks like a toy compared to the GIANT pendulum the killer in THE RAVEN does. This thing is massive and looks absolutely absurd.

  • The Buz

    Just a note: Some of us use some fairly offensive language in this episode. It was never said in seriousness and was all in jest.

      baby rape?

      i’d like to second that email about listening to other movie podcasts. it’s damn near impossible to find one that’s not hosted by morons or sundance bots.

    • Jerel Of The Dead
