Your Turn to Pick Episode 5: Riki-Oh, The Story of Ricky

It’s Erin’s turn to pick! In this episode, she turns to the kung-fu oddity Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky. What lies at the core of the Manga-inspired 1991 prison flick? And will Blake be able to survive it?

And what’s cool this week? Erin just keeps watching trailers over and over, with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Suicide Squad occupying her time, while Blake enjoyed the first issue of Marvel’s Poe Dameron series.

Your Turn to Pick Episode 4: Swamp Thing

It’s time for another Your Turn to Pick! This week, in memory of the late Wes Craven, Blake chooses his 1982 DC Comics movie Swamp Thing. We talk about the movie, Blake suffers a tragic misunderstanding about the nature of two of the characters, and then we discuss Craven’s legacy as a filmmaker and which Nightmare on Elm Street movie is actually best.

And what’s cool this week? Erin is in love with Ms. Marvel, while Blake dug the finale of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars and has found a new reason to anticipate the upcoming Superman: Lois and Clark.

Your Turn to Pick Episode 3: Dragonslayer

It’s time for a Your Turn to Pick movie episode! This week it’s Erin’s turn, and she’d pulling out a film from her childhood, the 1981 fantasy film Dragonslayer. How does it hold up to an adult pair of eyes? And will Blake (who’s never seen it before) enjoy it without the filter of nostalgia?

And what’s cool this week? Blake gives us a double dose of comic recommendations with Superman #42 and The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents Sparks Nevada, Marshall on Mars #4!

Your Turn to Pick Episode 2: Digging Up the Marrow

Blake and Erin return this week for another Your Turn to Pick movie podcast! This time it’s Blake’s turn, and he pulls out Adam Green’s (Hatchet, Frozen) newest horror film Digging Up the Marrow. They talk about the monsters, the nature of characters in horror movies, and what kind of movie is creepy enough to make Erin jump at her own ringtone. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, check it out before the Petits get super-spoilery.

And what’s cool this week? Erin loved Disney/Pixar’s newest flick Inside Out, and Blake doubles up with a pair of comic books: Evil Dead 2: Beyond Dead By Dawn #1 and Infinity Gauntlet #2.

Your Turn to Pick #1: Goodfellas

It’s time for an all-new Showcase feature! Have you ever sat around with your friends, family, or significant other, trying to choose a movie to watch and finally giving up and turning to reruns of The Simpsons? Blake and Erin certainly have. And that’s where this new series comes in! In every episode of this irregularly occurring feature, one of your hosts will choose a movie with no input from the other. They’ll watch and review it, no matter what it is. The first time up is Erin’s turn to pick, and she went with the 1990 Scorcese classic Goodfellas.

And what’s cool this week? Erin has gone crazy over the Japanese mobile game Neko Atsume, while Blake is happy with the end of DC’s Convergence.
