Wham Bam Pow is an action/scifi moviecast. Each week, host Cameron Esposito and panelists Rhea Butcher and Ricky Carmona will terminate your boredom with movie news, interviews & watch-along film reviews. It's one show to rule them all!
We're back this week with a review of Robert Rodriguez's Desperado, which has nothing to do with the song by the Eagles, as far as we can tell. Plus, we're joined by Pop Culture Happy Hour's Glen Weldon to chat about the Movie That Made Him, and we'll help you make the most of this holiday season by suggesting some excellent, sophisticated movie/food pairings.
For next week's show, we'll be watching Olympus Has Fallen, which is available now on Netflix Watch Instant.
We present you with a particularly Swayze-heavy show this week, and we feel GREAT about it. Special guest Jordan Morris joins us to share the Movie That Made Him, we chat about the action brawler Road House, and we try to solve some real puzzlers. Are "coolers" a thing? Is Jean-Claude Van Damme really that good at splits? Why is Swayze on our minds in such a major way?
Here's that JCVD Volvo spot. What do you think -- real or fake?
We're taking next week off in observance of Thanksgiving, but we'll be watching Desperado for our 12/5 show -- it's available now on Netflix Watch Instant!
This week, we celebrate Cameron's return with an extended news segment and some bonus Troll Doll talk. Plus, we chat Movies That Made Us: Tough Ladies Edition, and lend a critical eye to Chris Hemsworth's current vehicle for bein' hunky, Thor: The Dark World.
For next week's show, we're watching Road House, available now on Netflix Watch Instant!
This week, Rhea and Ricky plunge into Kathryn Bigelow's 1995 cyberpunk thriller, Strange Days! Plus, we read and respond to some of your emails in a new segment we like to call "Wham Bam Pow Pod Fanny Pack Bag of Listener Emails" (please help us come up with a new name).
Thanks to Alex and Philip and everyone else who has sent us emails. We love your feedback and movie suggestions, so keep 'em coming! Hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And thanks again to the cool cats over at Pop Culture Happy Hour for the love!
For next week's show, we'll be going back to the theaters to check out Thor 2!
This week, Rhea and Ricky discuss the Schwarzenegger/Stallone/50 Cent action thriller Escape Plan, which is in theaters now. Plus, in honor of Halloween, they share the spooky, creepy, and horrifying movie moments that made them.
This week, we become the judges, juries, and executioners for the 2012 sci-fi/action flick Dredd. Plus, feeling inspired by Gravity and Dredd, Rhea and Ricky pitch some hot "places to be trapped" movie premises.
This week, Cameron makes her triumphant return, and we celebrate by chatting about the Clooney/Bullock sci-fi thriller, Gravity -- you might want to tie yourself down to something for this one. Plus, let us teach you about what's poppin', sippin', AND munchin'!
This week, Rhea and Ricky are back at the helm, and they deliever the dish on the Formula One biopic Rush, which is currently in theaters. Plus, prop up your feet, lean back in your sweet leather chair, and let their pitches for hot new sports movies wash over you; you're running the movie studio now, listeners.
Cameron's out this week, but Rhea and Ricky are totally in and stoked to dish about their favorite 80s movie moments! Plus, we dust off the James Spader teen action flick Tuff Turf, so heat up your crimping iron and polish your switch blade -- you'll need 'em both.
This week, we take a trip to the past and revisit an early recording -- a recording so old, in fact, it pre-dates the Wham Bam Pow name. Listen to us discuss the 1979 celebration of weird, ten person gangs, The Warriors. Enjoy Rhea's spirited pitch of a Back To The Future sequel. Revel in our youth and inexperience! Can you dig it?
