On This Episode: Now that the 32nd Annual Sci-Fi Marathon is a thing of the past, and the 7th Annual Horror Marathon is in the not-so-distant future, Joe decides to sit down with Kevin and give their own oral history of the marathon experience. In this first installment of this mini-series, Joe and Kevin reflect on what it was like to experience their first marathon and how the old Drexel North days influenced their movie-watching experience over the years. It’s a trip down memory lane, delving into the fascinating decades of human history: the 1980s and 1990s!

Episode 420 – Black Widow and Leia Neo-Feminism

fatguysatthemovies2_banner

This Week: Kevin dives feet-first into the bear trap of a conversation about social media and internet-driven neo-feminism, particularly on how it has impacted Avengers: Age of Ultron and a Star Wars T-shirt. Then, he moves onto something much more pleasant, which is the new trailer for Human Centipede III (Final Sequence). After this, he’s off to the reviews, which includes the films Hot Pursuit, Maggie, Welcome to Me, Misery Loves Comedy and Roar! Later in the show, Kevin looks at the box office battle between Avengers and everyone else before rattling through a slate of surprisingly good DVD recommendations.
