Welcome listeners, to Episode 80 of The Intermission Podcast! We’ve made it to the ol’ double forty as the Canadians call it. Crazy Canadians.
To start things off we have a little back and forth about the flop that was Prime Day. If you missed it, Amazon.com put on a sale to celebrate 50 years of Amazon Prime. It promised to be bigger than Black Friday, but some sources are reporting it was more like Crap Wednesday. Heck, Walmart decided to join the celebration, and out Amazon Primed Amazon. At least that’s what my sources tell me.
We finally get the skinny on Corey’s movie concept, The Icards Have Fallen. Loosely based on a fever dream Corey once had while on a walkabout in Australia, The Icards Have Fallen chronicles the attempted hostile takeover of the Icard ranch by a group of Canadian special forces, a.k.a, Mounties. Or something like that. I don’t know. Corey will tell you all about it. I don’t pay much attention to that bozo.
Then we discuss Joe Dirt 2, which at the time of this recording, is free on Crackle. We also might have tried to make plans to get together and watch the upcoming Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!
There’s a new dinner theater opening up (in an old regular theater) in our little town, and that got us talking about our expectation vs experiences at dinner theaters. Are you coordinated enough to watch a movie and eat a burger at the same time? Does it matter if you’re watching a movie you’ve seen a hundred times, and you miss a few seconds here and there to dip your fries in some ‘chup? Whatever the case may be, I think we’re all happy to see some life given to the old Colony Theater in Gallipolis, Ohio.
Guy and Craig went on a man date. They watched the new raunch-com, Trainwreck. Oh, that’s a new genre of movie we came up with. Raunch-com. It’s trademarked and copyrighted and stuff, so you aren’t allowed to say it without paying us royalties. But yeah, Guy and Craig are dating now. Craig tried the old hole in the bottom of the popcorn bucket trick on Guy. They held hands. Maybe a little tonsil hockey. Guy promised there would be boobies in the movie, but all he managed to see was John Cena’s junk. Also, for some reason we spit out a long list of sports commentators that weren’t in the movie.
