The 1995 Sly Stallone vehicle, Judge Dredd, is our personal plague this week, as we try to talk about the film, but mostly end up talking about other, better sci-fi movies. We out ourselves as Stallone apologists, but can't quite get behind him being in this movie. We discuss the questionable life choices of the great Max von Sydow. Rob Schneider is certainly in this movie, Armand Assante tragically isn't dealing coke in this film, and all Germans are bad guys in the 90's.

Also in this episode, Texas is too proud of being Texas, we discuss mundane things we should have talked about off the podcast, and Stallone pops in to read his quotes about this movie.

In our longest and most in-depth episode to date, we sit down to sing the praises of Joel Schumacher's first swing at the Dark Knight in 1995's Batman Forever, starring Val Kilmer, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Chris O'Donnel, and Tommy Lee Jones. Unfairly tossed aside in the pop-cultural landscape due to the failures of Batman & Robin, Schumacher's first outing after taking the reins from Tim Burton was actually everything a Batman movie should be. Not without its flaws, and with villains played far too large, the core of Batman was reached rather well. And then largely edited out. But the dynamism that didn't make the final cut still informs the character.

Also in this episode, we delve into what a superhero movie should be, how Warner Bros. have lost their way in this department, how bad movies absolutely can ruin good heroes, and, of course, how awful Zack Snyder is. 

So take this dive with us. Learn some things about this movie, learn some things about Batman, learn some things about us, and maybe even learn a thing or two about yourself. No promises.

P.S. Sculpted rubber nipples are no stupider than sculpted rubber muscles. Get over it.

Lacey Day joins us for the second week in a row, for a movie she actually likes this time, as we delve in to 1995's cult classic, Tank Girl. Lori Petty stars in the titular role, with support from Naomi Watts as Jet Girl and Ice-T as the leader of the Rippers. Malcolm McDowell once again fulfills his life's purpose and plays the villain. The movie is largely enjoyed, even though Allen hates both post-apocalyptic movies, and movies that think Earth is ever going to run out of water. Because of this viewing, Steven finally feels like he better understands girls we went to high school with. Ten years too late.

Also on this episode: Allen hates Todd McFarlane, Steven has a terrible impersonation of Malcolm McDowell and won't stop doing it, Lacey Day doesn't have a favorite Nightmare On Elm Street movie, the current lack of respect for Gwen Stefani is dissected, and to Lacey Day's chagrin, Allen and Steven won't stop singing Bush songs.

Joined once again by Lacey Day, we take on the 1994's Jim Carrey vehicle, The Mask. Based off the Dark Horse Comics property and developed by Dark Horse Entertainment, The Mask deviates strongly from its violent source material and becomes a kid-friendly, living cartoon. Bolstering the rising career of Jim Carrey and launching the career of Cameron Diaz, the film was both wildly successful (being the second highest-grossing comic book film of all time, behind only Batman) and critically well received.

In this episode, we establish that 2016 Stanley Ipkiss would be a Men's Rights Activist, we all love 90's tropes except for pollution jokes, Allen hates sports radio, but loves when dogs wear things on their heads, Steven hates Ben Stein, and Lacey Day thinks Cameron Diaz is a babe.

Ipkiss our asses.
