At BannedCast Movie Trash, we rate and review movies you love, movies you hate, and movies you may have overlooked. Each month we pick two movies for a BannedCast double feature. Then we watch, review, and discuss–it’s the most novel concept in the history of podcasting! So join DB, Erin, and Jared as we alternately disparage and praise the things you love and hate, brought to you by BannedCast!
Tori Spelling stars as the headlining cheerleader in the second in our Lifetime True Crime double feature, Death of a Cheerleader, directed by William A Graham. Based on the sad 1984 murder of Kirsten Costas, this Lifetime movie showcases all of Tori Spelling’s raw acting talent, which can only be compared to that of a comatose ferret. Oh, and she’s
This week we kick off our Lifetime True Crime double feature with Charles Robert Carner’s A Killer Among Friends. How closely does this dramatization staring Tiffani Amber Thiessen and Patty Duke hew to the true events of the tragic murder of Michele “Missy” Avila, and how effectively do those early 90’s fashions help convey the sense of impending horror? Listen
The second in our alien double feature, it’s our review of John McTiernan’s Predator! Why are we reviewing this cult classic? Because some damn fool said this testosterone-fueled d**k-measuring contest was the best. Are they right? Listen to find out! Listen to BannedCast Movie Trash for reviews and discussions of the movies you love, movies you’ve forgotten, and movies you
It’s the first in our alien double feature that totally omits that iconic 1979 Ridley Scott film! Today we instead review the equally iconic 1982 John Carpenter film The Thing. We get to the bottom of Kurt Russell’s beard, Wilford Brimley’s diabetes, and Donald Moffat’s eyebrows, with some mention about plot, cinematography, and all that other stuff. But those eyebrows
It’s time for the second in our Stallone Cops double feature, Marco Brambilla’s Demolition Man! The year is 2032, and while cursing in public is no longer allowed, dating your own daughter is apparently totally okay. Get ready for more talk about Stallone’s nude pics, Wesley Snipes’ hair, and Sandra Bullock’s familial ancestry. Listen to BannedCast Movie Trash for reviews

It’s the double feature no one was asking for: Stallone Cops! We begin with George Cosmatos’s Cobra, in which Stallone plays a policeman who doesn’t like junk food, Coors Light, or Mexicans in cars listening to Gloria Estafan. This movie is the disease, and BannedCast is the cure! Listen to BannedCast Movie Trash for reviews and discussions of the movies
And you thought those Star Wars prequels were bad. It’s time for the second in our Space Jam double feature having nothing to do with either Michael Jordan or Looney Tunes although there is plenty of slapstick comedy in this “sci-fi” adventure from director Luc Besson, The Fifth Element. Join us as we untangle all of the unfunny elements (way
Covid-19 lockdown continues as we travel to the stars for the first in our Space Jam double feature having nothing to do with either Michael Jordan or Looney Tunes. Whatever, you probably don’t know what the name Space Jam has to do with cartoon basketball anyway so just calm the fuck down already—this is our Space Jam double feature, beginning
It’s time for the second in our stripper double feature, Paul Verhoeven’s Showgirls! And don’t you dare call Nomi a stripper—she’s a dancer goddamnit. One of us is convinced that this movie is better than its reputation as one of the worst films ever made, and one of us thinks its reputation suits it just fine. Is this movie a
Time for the second in our pandemic double feature, it’s Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, a movie featuring just the right amount of Gwyneth Paltrow and perhaps not enough Kate Winslet. Is this pandemic movie better than Outbreak? Listen to find out because the answer is most definitely ‘yes’—Outbreak sucked apart from a few rednecks getting lit up by an army helicopter.
The cast of Tiger King reunited and it feels so damn good that we had to discuss it on a BannedCast bonus episode. Join us as we take one (hopefully) last look at the Netflix Tiger King phenomenon because it feels like Joe Exotic’s fifteen minutes of fame has already long outstayed its welcome. Listen to BannedCast Movie Trash for
More contentious than pro choice versus pro life, Republican versus Democrat, and Billie Eilish versus musical talent is Joe Exotic versus Carol Baskin, and at least one of us is on team Baskin. That’s right, we’re interrupting our pandemic double feature to talk Rebecca Chaiklin and Eric Goode’s docuseries Tiger King in a podcast that’s probably two weeks too late
Coronavirus quarantine got you feeling cabin feverish? Listen to the first in our pandemic double feature for our review of 1995’s Outbreak, directed by Wolfgang Petersen. We’ll discuss Dustin Hoffman’s height, Rene Russo’s hair, and the contentious Blur vs. Oasis debate. If you’re wondering where our review of Showgirls is, it’ll be here in a few weeks—we’re in Covid-19 mode
Is Jennifer Lopez really 50 years old?! If she is, Jenny from the block doesn’t look a day over 49-and-a-half. But enough about JLo—there’s also a movie in here written and directed by Lorene Scafaria. How much of a move? Listen to this podcast review of Hustlers, the first in our stripper movie double feature, find out! Listen to BannedCast
Coming at you like a roundhouse kick to the groin, it’s our review of Rowdy Herrington’s 1989 cult classic Road House! The second in our barroom double feature, this one stars Patrick Swayze as a bouncer/cooler who’s able to win the affections of a doctor played by Kelly Lynch. This movie features lots of body oil, lots of fist fights,
Many have heard of it, few have seen it, and fewer still have anything good to say about it. Today we kick off our barroom double feature with Roger Donaldson’s 1988 film Cocktail. How bad is it? Well, if you thought you hated Tom Cruise after that whole couch-jumping thing, wait until you see him reciting poetry while standing on
DB and Jared discuss the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys while Erin is away in Ireland chasing leprechauns and shamrocks. That’s at least our understanding of what she’s doing over there, although our understanding of Irish culture is admittedly derived mostly from Lucky Charms commercials. Anyway, you’ll hear our take on this companion piece to Lords of Dogtown and hear some
