Con Air (1997)

For week three of Nic Cage March Madness, the gang is flying first class in the action packed aviation extravaganza: Con Air with super fan Digger Bill Dooley (don’t google him - he’s not famous) !

We’ve got a lot to talk about: puns, explosions, fire trucks that spray fire, bunnies, boxes, anti-war rednecks from Alabama, and Ryan Minor.

Also, the boys talk about the actual movie, Con Air:  the human sand crab fight on the plane, Nic Cage not being the legitimate father to his baby, and horrific one liners.

 

Also, why did all the light turns green at that intersection after Dave Chappell’s fake dead body fell from the sky? Where did Swamp Thing get that war helmet? Why did the 90s love joking about cross dressers and racism?

 

Hang around towards the end of the show because Bill covers his first list of grievances about the Hold My Popcorn pod. 

 

So, make sure your seats backs and tray tables are in their full upright position, and hold your popcorn because it’s going to be a drunk flight.

Face Off (1997)

This week on Hold My Popcorn half the guys screwed up their audio, but it should sound better as the show goes along.

Speaking of things that don’t get better, the gang watched the face swapping action blockbuster Face/Off for our second week of our Nic Cage March Madness Movie Month. 

There’s a lot to cover including all the sexual tension between family members, unnecessary slow motion scenes, John Woo’s bird budget, and that boat scene.

Also, why does everything explode on contact? Why didn’t Archers team tell the prison that he was undercover? What is up with Travolta smushing his bloated fingers against the faces of the ones he love? And lastly, did Cage and Travolta deliver good or really bad acting performances? 

All of this and Bob Kraft so get ready to have your face licked with a side of peaches.

Raising Arizona (1987)

It’s March Madness, baby! The popcorn posse is back with a month filled with a man truly depicts madness: Nic Cage!

Eraser (1996)

On the premiere episode of Hold My Popcorn, the gang gratefully wraps up their extended Arnold Schwarzenegger month with 1996’s Eraser: directed by the guy who made the Mask and costarring Sunny from the Godfather.

If you love watching 80’s action movies stuck in the mid 90’s, then this is the film for you. Why is it almost impossible to understand a word that Arnold is saying? Are the Chinese women living in Chinatown allowed into the Yakuza? How can Arnold say he works alone in one scene, but the next scene he's doing a job with James Caan in the next? Why is there a wind tunnel in James Cromwell’s office when the window is broken, yet there is no wind to speak of when Arnold opens the emergency door to that airplane?  

There’s plenty to talk about including terrible Italian mob stereotypes, Arnold’s inability to display sexual tension with anything other than weapons, an appearance from Robert Kraft and Ice-T in a northern New Jersey gay bar, and much more! So get your buttered popcorn ready because it’s going to get slippery!

Kindergarten Cop (1990)

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!! Starting next week our show will be changing its title to Hold My Popcorn

That said the boys are now into their 4th Arnie movie of the month with 1990’s Kindergarten Cop! This is the only none rated R movie the gang will be covering, but that doesn’t mean this episode won’t be as crude and offensive as ever. All jokes aside the gang all agrees that this is probably Arnold’s best acted movie, and the kids in this are also great. 

However there’s plenty to cover including Arnolds poor attempt at pronouncing ferret, and what happened to the other teacher of 25 years? Did she get fired just so Arnold to be there?

Many more topics will be discussed including emotional support animals on planes, homeless music performers, Ted Bundy, and a possible buddy cop movie staring Ice T and Robert Kraft, featuring Jon Lovitz. 

So buckle up for the last episode of the Dicks in the Back Row, before we change to Hold My Popcorn,  it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Total Recall (1990)

In week 3 of the extended Arnold movie month the boys actually watched a movie they all enjoyed for the first time in a while in 1990’s Total Recall.

 

Max thought the main villains name was Copenhagen, and was not corrected until the end of episode, so enjoy that. Also the boys cover heavy hitting questions like, what is Arnold packing…you know what I mean. Is he doing an above average job of acting in this, or is this one of his worse acting jobs in a great film? Is Sharon Stone cocaine skinny, or workout skinny? Who wore women’s clothing better, Gary Busey, or Arnie? 

 

Also, the gang talks about the ultra violent and multiple WTF visual moments that make this movie both awesome, and extremely weird….like what is up with Kuato or as Preble will describe him, “A malignant Yoda” That scene just comes out of left field.

The Running Man (1987)

For our second movie in the extended Arnold month, The Dicks in the Back Row watched the forgotten 1987 futuristic death match head scratcher: The Hunger Games…wait no….The Running Man!

 

This is truly a one-of-a-kind movie starring two future governors, a hall of fame NFL running back/ civil rights activist, a rock and roll hall-of-famer, and the former host of Family Feud.

 

The boys are getting straight to business in this episode; there certainly isn’t any wasted airtime, such as the Tennessee Vols basketball team, the 1970’s TV show Columbo, Josh Beckett, John Olerud, or Google searching wrestler names, or movies that feature boats - just hard hitting commentary!

 

There is plenty to be discussed: How did the government get the footage of Arnold not following direct orders? Why is Jim Brown in this movie?  What is up with Richard Dawson’s assistant in this? And speaking of Richard Dawson, he is so good in this movie…that’s not a question, just saying.

 

This movie is loaded with puns, and the boys are loaded on something else, so sit down, or stand up, or run away because the Dicks in the Back Row are coming for ya!

Commando (1985)

The gang is starting Arnold month early with the super violent and steroid infused 80’s classic: Commando!

This is the movie that really started it all for "The Arnold" we all know and love today, and the boys have a lot of questions including, but not limited to: what's with the overall look of Bennett, and why would a movie with Arnold have his main enemy be a flabby, fat Freddy Mercury cosplayer? Why did they cast Dan Hedaya as a South American dictator, and what is up with his accent? How did Arnold and Cindy really find the island, and why does the bad guy's house have multiple boiler rooms?!

There's plenty to be discussed: Hawaiian music, Cream magazine, Helen Keller, a poorly attempted Australian accent, and a cameo by Patriots owner Robert Kraft, so strap on your rocket launcher, and do some extra pushups because it’s about to get real sweaty with The Dicks in the Back Row!

 

The Town (2010)

The Dicks are kicking off the new year with the Boston bank robber hit, The Town. 
 
Few things covered include, the strange modern world we lived in when blackberries were king for 1-2 years before the iPhone, how can Clair afford a townhouse in Boston on an assistant bank manager salary? Why do all Boston movies have their lead tough guy drink cranberry juice? Why didn’t Ben Affleck ever call his grandmother in Florida to see if his mom was there? And most importantly, who the hell calls Fenway “The Cathedral of Boston”?
 
It’s just the Massholes in this episode, and a lot of Boston talk will be featured in this one, so sit down, or sit up...doesn't really matter to us, and enjoy the back row's first ep of 2019.
