Support the show (https://www.paypal.me/bingewatcherspodcast)
like this is kind of historic, actually, because all four of us have never been on a show. I don't think all four
that it I don't think we have either. That's so
true. I don't think so. Yeah.
And we all have a collective stalker now because I see that pink mood was interacting with Adam on Instagram.
We all have someone someone wrote me, like, three times. It's not It's not Mark Z from Canada around some other person. Hey,
Dave, have you checked into your instagram to see if this hyper fan is like stalking you like the rest of us?
No, I haven't seen on that ever since I created the fake instagram. I haven't gone back to it.
It's not fake. That's your real page, right?
I mean, yeah, I guess it's technically, really. I just haven't done anything with it,
man. All right, then. Whatever. I'm trying, but I want Dave to really get social on there, but he don't know. You have, like, 14 followers for doing nothing. Just posted your picture of you and a a bottle of Corona.
Dude, that's awesome.
Do I really? I haven't even been I'm going on it right now, like literally
were 14. You did nothing. Corona virus followers
don't say that. Actually, we'll take our blood through the government's doing this weird thing where they're asking, like they're taking things out of the media. I don't know if you noticed things are
disappearing winter Like they're, like disappearance. Yeah.
Uh, yeah. You say pink mood?
Yeah. Pink mood. I don't know what
they're following me.
We could ask her what I assume is a girl. She might not really be a girl. Who the hell knows? I think like,
uh, it's like a 43 year old guy that lives with
his parents. Know where you are. Number one fan, a
cold box of wine, pour Something cold on ice because it's the binge watchers podcast. All right,
All right. So
let's roll into the rest of the episode. There's a lot of things going on, but a lot of things are going straight to video these days, but there's an internals update and eternal Sze. It's a marvel story. It's a little bit weird. Supposedly, they've been living on earth like thousands of years, and they're mixed in the like mythology. Greek mythology, whatever. Um Norse mythology, some of them whatever. But they're saying someone Hank is going to be playing Ajax HX in the comic books is a dude and responds like other eternal. But they're saying like the internals, we're all spawned by a celestial only celestial we've seen in the movies, I think, is ego the living planet, which they made Star Lord's dad in. Ah, you know, guardians of the galaxy. But that was the big spoiler that got leaked to the Internet. Was that someone Hayek is gonna the leader named Ajax and they're fighting crow. The funny thing is, I think a Jackson Crow have ah romantic relationship in the comics. So how they're gonna play it out in the movie, I don't know. But the Crow with a K is the leader of a group called The Defiance and the Defiance or kind of like mutants. So if the eternal zehr, the beautiful, godlike creatures, the defiance are more like the dwarf in mutated monstrous subhumans that, like we're at one point a food source for the celestial trolls Yeah, I like exactly trolls, dwarves, cave dwelling, whatever. Characters in the car problems. Yes. Um and then I heard Top Gun to is going to be a December release, which I think is cool because
it works. It works because if that's a
Christmas release, that's gonna do gangbusters. Yeah, that's what I think anyway. And the
tickets will be $50
because if it's a streaming ticket, you're right like you'll be paying like 50 bones to watch Top Gun to
does. It does.
It's a wonder Tony Scott had is still included in the credits in some way. Or is it they had done Location, scouts, location scouting for the movie before Tony Scott, uh, took his own life. Piedra off the brakes for
bringing that up again. Adam
Horrible. Really. You weigh about 100 problems, All right, The last thing that I heard
was the San Diego comic con is still trucking along that they refused Thio.
There's still going to do it. They they
haven't, like, made any safety precautions, any announcements or anything. So I mean, right now comic con is scheduled to continue, but other festivals have come up with brilliant ideas like Hey, Dave, what have you heard about south by Southwest?
Yeah, like Amazon just announced the other day that their parting up with South by Southwest to do the festival as planned. But do it all online so you could actually end for free So anybody can go out and watch whatever was gonna play itself myself. West. They said details were to come, so I don't know how it's all gonna work out yet, but guess we're gonna be a little like do film festivals online Now, that's the way the world's
going. It's crazy. I know, Right? Dave? You are a weird A
post about bu What was
that? So, uh, yeah, there's been clamoring for cats. The butthole cut where everybody thought that movie was just really unrealistic because none of the cats had butt holes. Only Cat knows he they put bottles in your face all the time.
I would watch this version of cats. This is a version I would watch. Yeah, released that. You'll get my $5 or whatever. You got it. Yeah,
I guess these guys ex VP comedy made a butthole version of cats where every scene of cats bending over your side, you see, of buttle and sometimes nipples.
Wow. Well, the
other thing that gets my heart to fire is this thing called Sets my heart the fire, which is Edgar Wright's new movie about a self realizing robot dentist that goes on some kind of journey to find his soul or go out in the world and figure things out. So Edgar Wright, we're talking. He's the guy that did what? Shaun of the dead. What's the cop? One that cut the body one That's like, Yeah, I did hot fuzz. He's just
a baby driver. Yeah, maybe drivers amazing. Yeah. Yeah.
And that voice you're hearing folks were welcome him back to the show. Nikki Lates. What's up, Nick?
Hey, what's up? I'm Nick. I'm always late, But I made it on time today. Guys, I'm right here. Sometimes I can Sometimes I don't. Um Yeah, that's not the way I probably That was a bad way to use myself. I'm sorry, I I'm back. I would like

We're gonna roll right into wicked city. Okay, Now, before I give the tagline to our listeners, I want first impressions. So, Nick, since you're back, why don't we start with first impressions? Wicked city. Go, brother.
Okay, first off, I'm not a big anime, fans. I was like, I have not I don't know, I'm not really feeling this. And then I started watching this, and it started out. It was like a porno. And then this spider lady came in, and from then on, I'm like, Oh, I'm sold. This movie was incredible. And this is the type of anime I like. I like the horror. Like the style of it. I was blown away, and I'm thank you for introducing. This guy's like, I really enjoyed this one. It's like, the thing it is like the thing, but like, they could do so much more because it's animation.
So I just want to get this straight. Thank you for introducing you to pornography.
No, no, no. We can't wait. Oh, yeah. No way. I came again. Guys came again.
I mean, you could have another baby.
definitely get some e mails about this one.
Why does it keep coming? It's a good movie. Guys, check it out. I loved it. And, Adam,
your first impressions. What do you think, brothers?
Wow. Ah, while I agree, definitely reminded me a carpenter's the thing. There's some of that stuff going on, but also, like, brought into this whole do this perspective. Stranger things, too. Like the upside down concept is alive and well here. There's, uh, there's there's more humanoid like things coming from the other side. Um, I don't want you know how hard we're gonna get, like, spoiling specific parts of it. But it it was it was like that. It was like David Cronenberg stuff a lot of the body weirdness and stuff, like just the creepiness of very right after that porno scene at the beginning, the creepiness of you know, spiders and the way the woman contort your body to get out of that room. I was, ah, edge of my seat. You kind of remind me a little bit of like H. P. Lovecraft type stuff like from Beyond which I just watched this week.
Oh, yeah. Get right. Message. Rest in peace, Stuart Gordon. But Yeah,
Yeah, absolutely. So we've been going on our own secret Stuart Gordon, like the paths did to watch all the stuff that he contributed to cinema universe getting excited about that. So but yeah, this this kind of I
if you could say it's it's not home, Ahsha. That happened. So in the same time, praying it was like, this is a contemporary film with those other films. Like it wasn't It was like adding to that Lord not piggybacking on it. I think so. Oh, yeah,
Dave, what about you? What's your dangerous impression on this movie?
I think I'm supposed to say 10 Hail Marys. I'm not sure. You know, I'm not like Nick. I'm not an anime fan. And I don't know if this is converting me. There's a lot of tits and a lot of like pussy monsters and spiders looking. It felt like it felt like fucking Blade Runner with the hard on and like, yeah,
that's a pretty good tagline. Blade Runner with a hard on. But
the official attack was a bit more PG Attack for
the movie when it came out was such a cz this a peace treaty has been in effect for hundreds of years, could prevent a war between Earth and the black world. Although it's gonna be set to renewed evil forces. Want to make sure that it doesn't happen but ensure that it does hard getting human, talky and sexy Demon Maki are charged with protecting a diplomat May art who holds the key to peace. But then an army of multi dimensional sessions is on their trail, so it's not gonna be easy.

really solved. I can't
really like I didn't shave my balls yesterday
with. And what about you? What
do you have to say about manscaping?
Well, I just got a question for Nick. Hey, Nick. How does it feel to know millions of balls are going to be Nick
free? I thought that's you. And when he was doing them like, oh, Nikki late? I love e Need something like this? Yeah. No, You know,
along with the show on with the show, go. All right, um, so we're talking about the history of Wicked City. It actually started out as a series of novels called Wicked City Blackguard and Wicked City. Being the 1st 1 It was just really wicked city black card. And then they made five other stories. But it's written by the guy that wrote the 13 vampire 100 D novels Hideyuki Kochi. He's a big horror writer in Japan, and the alternate title for these stories is supernatural Beast City. Now I would think animate is probably more inclined to have a title like that supernatural beast story. But again, six novels about the Black World radicals that spider chick you guys were talking about earlier her name is actually ah, Conoco. And guess what? The Spider Monster in the movie. His name. How creative Possessed gentlemen, His name is
Shadow. You know, there's a
scene in the beginning where they're trying to help out this old dude who's like the Master Roshi of this universe, and everybody talks about how there's almost a perverted old man character in an animated TV shows and movies. And this this delivers that doesn't keep you short on that stereotyping archive. You know that archetype, not archive archetype is what I meant to say. And ah, the people that brought you this genius character or a group called Madhouse is the production company that brought you Ninja Scroll. I would go on to bring you some other things, like the vampire in RD, which were actually get to later on in the month. But they all come together and make this magic happen. It is a senior that getting in the movie where they're trying to protect this little dude who's like 200 years old, he looks like a troll himself. He
he belongs to the demon world. And so you're kind of questioning, like where the story's going because he's weird looking. He looks like he has horns that were shaved off at one point. He's got long fingernails. They're hanging out some weird, magical hotel. And then at one point, he's like in this bathing area, which is like a fancy bathroom. And I looked up what this scene was supposed to be, and it takes place in what's called a soap land. If you guys ever heard about so plan. Okay, so so then I did. I want to request, right? I did a little Google thing to such a trip to Russia. I was like, Okay, what's the so plain? It's like a Turkish bath house, but they're saying in Japan's, like, hooker laws or or sexual or it like Congress laws you can't have. It's illegal to have sex with somebody. If you're unspecified on specified means, you haven't had an introduction. So they set up these things called. So plans. Which of these little
here is and then you're not unspecified because you get specific because you get introduced and then you know who the person is and then it's no longer illegal. So that's what happens in the soap.
That loophole. Yeah. Yeah. Sorry. I
went on a side tangent, but it was
the story. Could this in one of the major scenes of the movie? I
agree with that rule. What? It's a good you should probably know someone. Her? What the
Oh, yeah. Yeah. Well,
you know what? You know what? Just years
listen, if you're not comfortable getting naked in the so planned, you better do something to work on your body. I should bring this up. Comes as no surprise that we're stuck in our homes. You can avoid the complacency. You can stay active and keep moving. You can do things at home in your own comfort with beach body. I'm thinking like, Oh, my gosh, like why? Why introduced binge watchers to beach bodies? How's that gonna work? And I'm like, Okay, this is really intimidating. I don't think have a beach body. Maybe in six months I can get there in my mind. That's what a beach body is. I start looking through their streaming platform and I find out that they have this thing called country and then I don't feel intimidated. I'm like, Wait a minute, country heat. I'm thinking, like, at heart, I'm a country boy. Let me see what this is. It's a 20 minute workout that feels like you're just line dancing, right? And now this is from the company that did P. T X 90. They do the morning meltdown. They have the celebrity, you know, like they have the celebrity trainers like Jericho. Mike Matthews. So now I'm getting blown away that I could do this in 10 minutes and as a gift to the listeners of our podcast. They can try it for free. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna keep easing into this thing where I can get my couch body into a beach body. And I want our listeners to try it because I was intimidated first thing and I had to be like the rock. Or, like Ryan Gosling dancer, something to really, like, do this stuff. But I figured it out in, like, 20 minutes so they could try us. We have a free trial membership. They they all have to do is text binge. That's B I N g E to 30 30 30. That's binge to 30. 30 30 b i N g to 30 30 30. And that's the last of the announcement. So, um, we move out of soap land and we're in the Black Guard. You guys brought up the thing, right? So, yeah, the scene that sticks out is like, 14 minutes into the movie. The first fight with the mutants is
talking on their
patrolling. These patrolling. Yeah. So the movie starts with patrolling at the airport, and they're trying to figure out, like who is targeting this? Little may are truly he's between two worlds is breaking down and mutants, they're killing people again. And it looks like all hell's about to break loose in their little universe. Right? So, um, this guy, his ribs come out of his chest like when he encounters talking and talking like, Oh, I got a special gun or whatever and he tries a blasted and the dude's head comes off like a little spider creature. And that's that's probably the thing moment that you guys are talking about, right?
It looks so beautifully. Yeah, it looks so beautiful. And I kept on thinking like, Wow, what if they did this practically. How beautiful with that look.
Well, they said, like the director, um, he likes to make things cinematic like he basically three animation cels were designed in such a way to to, like, mimic like Hiss like movies and stuff like that. You know what I'm
saying? That's why I think like I really grabbed onto this movie so much because it wasn't like your typical animated movie like no mind like, I'm not really into this. This I completely fell in love with Because of that style, I felt
very much like a film, Nor,
I bet you like they must have taken. I wish we could see like it's too old, but they didn't really think of like behind the scenes, right? Like they just beautiful. Yeah, because imagine, I bet you the director, probably has, like, a notebook, right, like
book could be
yelling. So he probably went to the busy Japanese streets at night. I'm like, Look for a tunnel like that, right? And I tried to look up the history of this thing, and all I could really find was that it was a series of novels that the production couple just went on to make the other enemies and that, you know, there's a little controversy because of the soap land connection, right? But other than
that, there wasn't
much about wicked City except to say, like this is considered one of the like, essential or top favorite enemies of like all time. I'm getting a little bit of flak on Facebook from some of my female friends were saying that like, Enemy is just for dudes or it's misogynistic. It is sexual. I will make
it very sexualized
in this movie, especially because he's like he's got to go save the girl one point, and she's basically being passed around by the other demons because he betrayed their trust or whatever, Right? Like And the main villain is that one. Do you know that shadow guy? Right? And everybody? It seems like everybody is her ex. Like the guy who attacked him at the Magical Hotel was like her ex demon boyfriend. And then she's also the x of the main demon right
around. Yeah, we owe our
that. We're figuring else because through anything,
he was taken around E
mean and But he needs your help to get rid of the Spider Girl who was on a mission. Folks like they've sent me a message. It was like
I got me John. And that was the best message earlier today. Like that six years
before we did this show,
James. Like, what the hell am I watching? Guys like she's on
a mission. She had to go get his d n A. Like they tested his DNA to see if he was the human that the the other Open was looking for so they could make the human demon hybrids at the end of the movie. I mean, give me a break. There was a There was a reason why she was blowing him. I mean, it was
just so fucking
Maur two are spreading her like large vagina opening and spitting out spider webs everywhere I
e. Vagina cantata. You know, when you watch this movie, there's a
movie called Teeth that lets you know that
that zit condition
out there that happens in real life, David, that there's a condition, you know, like it happens to people. There's a whole thing. Well, you know,
I've seen that movies.
It's a great actually.
remember the scene where she kind of her whole body becomes like vaginal opening? Yeah, it sucks in inside.
So do you think
this movie on the element of sex? Do you think people gonna tune into this movie
because of the sexiness? Or one thing about? I want to say one thing about this movie. The visuals are amazing. Let's just talk about the airport. Seem like I'm not just trying to talk about the violence, but it is a visually beautiful movie. So actually, the I'm not just trying to sell them, it's sex. It's like the animation. This stills, the style like it's a really visually beautiful movie. So don't just based on what we're saying on that, like if you want a visually cool movie, do that too
well, I think there's pretty interesting parallels to this and in Just scroll in terms of how moves along its one villain after the next with special, unique abilities structures is it is there that you could compare? The two mean they're vastly different in their style total, and they're in our feel. But there's this underlying current of like, Oh, man, this thing has different powers. Never faced this before. This thing's coming back to fighting again kind of thing. And so a lot of that's going on like a video game thing.
Yeah, like each level you get. Yeah, totally. Now
some listeners want to know how they confined, uh, stuff. You know, how they confined this these movies. And for the longest time, it was really hard to find these animate things online, like people would share them really bootlegs on like the's websites, right? Like there's a fantasy enemy that I shared with you guys. But then I found a legit site. I don't know if you guys had time to look into retro crushed the app.
yes, awesome. It has shows.
And so I'm
like 1982 early two thousands like, really popular stuff, like even not just movies like even even shows, Um, and it's and it's really cool, like Ronan Warriors is on there, and that's a great Siri's. It's a little power, Angie, but whatever. But it's a cartoon with, like, samurai troopers. Um, so, yeah, but wicked cities on there. And so is S O. It is It's clone movie, which is Demon City. Ah, Syn Dooku, which we almost watched, but which we switched it up and did on Wicked City.
I'm glad, TJ, this'd
literally winning Dave Dave's favor of anime over like Dave. You compare the two films last week your introduction with inter school to this week's wicked city like where you at with Enemy
What? It hasn't changed much, man. I mean, I have a lot of similarities. Actually, an industry on this Ah protect a hot chick. Or in this case, the hot chick was helping protect the little guy. The other one had a little guy in it to this kind of like the weird Yoda figure except the guy the Yoda figure in this one. Like to suck tits a lot and was horny as fuck and just wanted to fuck all the time.
So far, I like eyes. Just like fuck movies.
To be fair, the old man paid great. Well, we're
gonna have to mark this episode. E or apples? Probably
owe anyone. Is there any
way folks, you know, stay tuned. For our very PG rated episode next week, we'll be discussing the movie called Dead Leaves, which is another animal selection. It's kind of funny. It's more comical. So I'm trying to win David over with that one, but I'm trying really hard. It's like your parents telling youto want something. I feel like everything I told Dave to watch. He's not gonna like any of them because
I'm telling you what I do. It's like I
would like to mention like we're supposed to have Dean Cameron on the show, so we'll
have. I'm excited about that. I Yeah, very excited about it. Go ahead, start
sucking his dick right now.
No, no, no. I'm excited. I told Dave like Do you have anyone you would one ever interview? And I'm like, I'm like, Yeah, Dean Cameron and then Dave, Rodent like I mean now John wrote, and I'm like, Oh, we Cal. Yes. This is amazing. I can't wait to see Oh,
the sponsor. The response was kind of immediate. He's like, I'm
anything and I won't be doing anything for a while.
And that's how this guy is. That's why I love him. That's a great Yeah,
yeah, he's got a good sense of humor, so we'll see how it goes. Um, the other reminder is, if anybody's gonna jump onto the stars app thing that we have going on, that trial's gonna expire soon. So get it if you want to. It's five bucks for three months or whatever. That's a good deal. Catch up with us on. Social media were everywhere. We have Facebook now. Adam's on I g. Nick and I are on i g. We got David on I g of all people and hopefully use it. It's a big deal. Um, he's got magic followers and, uh, yeah, so you can
see Oh, Magic. The gathering, her magic. No,
Dave. Literally He doesn't have to do any work. He literally does nothing and
no magic like they just falling. I fixed your magic in the way of saying no effort, No posting. Oh, Dave, they get the magic Magic followers. I
want to get as many followers for doing as little as possible.
That's actually the attitude to have on social media. Right? If you want to be an influence or David's like, you gotta be like, can't be bothered by your followers, you know? Seriously, like, you know what I mean. You gotta be totally, like, just a little precocious little like princess. You know, l a You know what I mean? The the vixen. And just, like, brush him to the side, and then they're gonna worship you. That's yeah. Total diva.
Dangerous. Even. Dave.
Yeah, I think
you're gonna take us
out anyways. On behalf of me, the binge watchers, which are John, Dave and Adam and me. I just want to say s h i z got riel. And we're right here. And I love you guys and keep listening. The show got awesome. I love you guys.
That's a great ending.
