A James Bondish spy and his female assistant infiltrate a group of South American Nazis who have kept Hitler alive until they take over the... using the ultimate weapon.

We are back watching another terrible action film of the 80s. Today, we celebrate the great Sir Sean Connery by watching a knockoff Bond film that is worse in every way you could possibly think off. (Don't worry we will watch the other shitfest in this series).

Trivia: I believe this film is the first film to make the star, the least entertaining person in the film. Maybe it was the actor who just seems not to really want be here. His character seems to just get lost in the story, almost how lost we got watching this damn cluster fuck. Oh and yeah he's "partner" is a baboon.

Let's do this!

After two episodes the wheel has finally broken us. I believe we need to rethink things and destroy this curse from hell. Unless you girls and guys like us getting severely mentally punished…wait do you? Do you like us getting punished? How about physically punished?

If that doesn't sound good, listen to this; every Monday we take a rusty linked chain and recor- Well, I don't want to spoil it. So check it out for yourself!

 

Time once again to go into your room, leap under the covers, pop in your headphones and listen in secret to the most outrageous entertainment industry film podcast this side of the Rio Grande. Speaking of which, on this episode of the Simplistic Reviews podcast, the boys let loose on American icon, John Wayne. Matt and Justin take turns trying to read each other's minds in another edition of Simplistic Submarine. DJ introduces a new game centered around the demise of movie villains in Simplistic Death. Also, Doctor Doom reveals what he does for a day job. That, another entry into Julie's Diary, a Sean Bean death retrospective, special appearance from Walter Vinci from First Time Watchers podcast and Jeanette Ward from the Mundane Adventures Of A Fangirl, and an 80s movie mullet-off...all on this brand new episode of the Simplistic Reviews podcast.

In the Season One finale of 'Beyond the Pale Ale' we come full circle and back to Nashville where Matt chats with Ryan McKay from Living Waters Brewing.

Coming up on their One Year Anniversary Matt and Ryan chat about how plans changes, almost on a minute to minute basis, in 2020, and the state of beer, locally.

Living Waters is also a part of the 'Black is Beautiful' beer project, which now has over 1,000 breweries involved.

Honestly, it has been an honor to be able to work with some many great people on this project. While the subject matter isn't the happiest, hopefully 'Beyond the Pale Ale' has been able to translate how hard people are working in these unprecedented times and how they are adapting and evolving in ways that they never saw coming.

Between racial and social injustice, a pandemic that has brought our economy to it's knees and polarized politics, its been rough, but together, and we get through this.

Hopefully, when Season Two goes into production we have moved on and into better and more 'normal' times.

The quarantine Netflix Party Edition continues with the classic 2017 sci-fi film, Beyond Skyline.

Oh it's not a classic?

I just assumed a movie about a father and aliens or a baby or something...wait I forget...what the hell did we just watch? Seriously, if you pulled a gun out and asked me to name one character, just one, you would be pulling that trigger.

Well, maybe letting you choice these movies is too much power, I'm honestly starting to think about taking my chances by leaving the house than watching another one of those "classic" Netflix films.

Stuck at home hiding from the Corona Virus? Watch some TV. Can't afford cable because you lost your job? Read a book. Suffering from illiteracy? Play with your kids. Hate your family? Well, there is always the Simplistic Reviews Podcast. This month the boys try to socially distance themselves from Harvey Weinstein, Kid Rock, Judith Light, Buzz Lightyear and even the wonderful world of Disney. They also debut a new segment in which they point out some Hollywood tropes they're sick of. All that and more, without the requirement of a breathing mask, on this episode of the Simplistic Reviews podcast

As the month of love and black history comes to a close, the Simplistic Reviews podcast does their best to hate on the concept of love and misremember pretty much all of black history. The boys tackle everything from Batman, to Bond songs, to Rick Moranis. They also introduce a new “Where Are They Now?” styled segment we’re calling What Happened. All that, a brief phone call to Michael Fassbender, a cameo from Walter Vinci from the First Time Watchers Podcast, a Terry Funk For President ad campaign and a pretty long and slightly unintentional plug for the app Cameo on this February episode of the Simplistic Reviews podcast

Theft, Trespassing, Kidnapping, Murder, Intrigue, Joel Kinnaman...that's right...Joel Kinnaman. The first Simplistic Reviews Podcast of the new year brings you all that and more, including Simon Appleton from The Movie Moustache. We discuss everything from Bond to Batman to Batman's odd confession in Batman Forever to Harvey Dent. Tune in and listen to all our crimes against the entertainment community.

 

 

While we are in the midst of 8 crazy nights and the Christmas season, why not get yourself put on the naughty list by checking out the holiday episode of the Simplistic Reviews podcast. The boys end the year off right by checking what tantalizing entertainment news story is stuffed in their stockings, they recap the year, and then finally decide which movies are actual Christmas movies and which aren’t movies at all in another installment of Simplistic Titles. All that and more on this gift wrapped episode of the Simplistic Reviews podcast

A street-smart cop goes undercover to infiltrate and bring to justice a ruthless motorcycle gang before they can carry out their plans of tyranny and murder.

Take a journey with DJ and Justin to a simpler time, were MGM made fun and exciting movies existed. Sure, MGM has lost it ways these days but there was a time they made enjoyable films. No, I'm not salty over the pull downs - but Stone Cold is a fun ride. And lets not pull punches here, no one pulls off the business in the front and party in the back like Brian mother F-ing Bosworth!

So, take a ride with us as we watch 90s Stone Cold and now faith-based action star, The Boz!

Yeah, the guy from Stone Cold does faith based action movies now, hey everyone has to make a living.

Take a journey with DJ and Justin to a simpler time, were MGM made fun and exciting movies existed. Sure, MGM has lost it ways these days but there was a time they made enjoyable films. No, I'm not salty over the pull downs - but Stone Cold is a fun ride. And lets not pull punches here, no one pulls off the business in the front and party in the back like Brian mother F-ing Bosworth!

So, take a ride with us as we watch 90s Stone Cold and now faith-based action star, The Boz!

Yeah, the guy from Stone Cold does faith based action movies now, hey everyone has to make a living.
