Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

And also not-so-classic films like Glenn Danzig’s new feature, Verotika!

Ryan’s pick was supposed to happen back in April, but then the world fell apart. The good news is that with all due precautions the show is able to record Commentaries again. The bad news is that after experiencing the relentless barrage of crap that is Glenn Danzig’s Verotika the Commentary Team has lost all hope for humanity.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, and the Cadavers are subjected to – believe it or not – the absolute worst movie they’ve watched yet on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

In their efforts to bring you fresh, new episodes every single Friday the Needless Commentary Team utilized unfamiliar and potentially unstable technology in order to produce an all-new Needless Commentary!

Billy Madison is one of the best-known, most often quoted comedy films of all time. It’s ridiculous and absurd and like no life anyone has ever lived. As such it seemed like the perfect escape from the current state of the world.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, and the Cadavers finally settle the debate between shampoo and conditioner on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Phantomaniacs! Love is in the air and it smells like the musty recesses of the bowels of Canada; or possibly Valentine Bluffs, USA. Nicole’s pick for February is one of her favorite rom-com romps – 1981’s My Bloody Valentine!

Needless Things Podcast 301 – Red Dawn Needless Commentary

It’s January, which means it’s time for a fresh new year and a look at another Patrick Swayze film!

The looming threat of Communism was ever-present in 1984. Back then Americans didn’t go a day without thinking about the menace of the Soviet Union and the possibility of World War III breaking out literally at any minute. It was a time of great paranoia and greater patriotism. “America the Free” seemed like a powerful yet fragile concept that could be tested to the breaking point by our enemies across the ocean without warning.

Master filmmaker John Milius zeroed in on this national temperament with the classic action/drama Red Dawn. The Movie stars Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey, Powers Boothe, Harry Dean Stanton, and Charlie Sheen in his first role.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, a returning Rad Ranger, and special guest Mike Gordon cheer on the Wolverines on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

It’s the spooky season, so a Halloween movie was a must, and while there are plenty of movies called Halloween… there are also a bunch called Trick or Treat, apparently. But this one features Rock’s Chosen Warrior, Sammi Curr!
Also starring Gene Simmons, Ozzy Osbourne, and Marc Price (Skippy from Family Ties), this film follows outcast metalhead Eddie Weinbauer – aka Ragman for… some reason – as he learns about life, love, and not letting an evil heavy metal icon who has been resurrected through the power of backmasking electrocute his friends.

Needless Things Podcast 273 – Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan Needless Commentary

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-gmuuf-b78411

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

After a thrilling NTP Facebook poll, the Crystal Lake Killer Jason Voorhees defeated the Prince of Polka “Weird Al” Yankovic when a tied vote led to a Mrs. Troublemaker run-in, resulting in Friday the 13th Part VIII taking the July Needless Commentary crown!
Released on July 28th, 1989, Jason Takes Manhattan was the highest budgeted Friday the 13th movie to date. Those extra dollars didn’t help because it also yielded the poorest box office. Taking the masked killer out of his natural environment was an inspired and interesting decision, but it would take a strong story with a commitment to quality to pull it off.
Listen in as Dave, Arian, Ryan, and Nicole discuss the commitment to quality and the strength of the story in this month’s Needless Commentary!

Needless Things Podcast 270 – The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Needless Commentary

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-2w45v-b4feed

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

What better way to kick off another Needless Summer than with a trip to the ocean with Steve Zissou?

This month’s Commentary was chosen by Ryan Cadaver, but is mutually adored throughout the team. Bill Murray leads one of the most remarkable casts ever assembled in what might be Wes Anderson’s most mainstream and watchable film. While the trademark unique, quirky style is present in abundance, The Life Aquatic’s narrative is fast-paced and perhaps more of a standard cinematic storytelling experience than any other Anderson film.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, Ryan, and Nicole raid the Hennessey Sea Lab for this month’s Needless Commentary!

We’re on the Road to WrestleMania, so it’s time for a wrestling-adjacent Commentary! Stone Cold Steve Austin is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, so it seemed right to choose one of his films – Hunt to Kill!
Part Commando, part The Most Dangerous Game, and all whoop-ass action, this 2010 action flick pits the Rattlesnake against a motley crew of criminals. Among the supporting cast are Michael Eklund, Eric Roberts, and a scenery-chewing Gil Bellows of Ally McBeal fame!
Listen in as Dave, Battle Cougar, Ryan Cadaver, Rad Ranger, and Arian head out to the woods for this month’s Needless Commentary!
