Dirty Sons of Pitches

Oh folks, are you in for a quarantine treat. We've at long last uncovered the notorious "Welcome to Marwen" episode that essentially killed Ben's other podcast, "Head Cannon." Ben watches "Marwen" (TWICE!) and builds out a ten-point cinematic universe that includes prequels, sequels, spinoffs, remakes, porn parodies, you name it. For any "Dirty Sons of Pitches" fan, you'll finally be able to listen to what has been talked about for over a year between Ben and Nate, and "Head Cannon" is still available on podcast platforms. Enjoy Ben's suffering and bewilderment at this very misguided movie.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are keeping up their social distance with another adapted podcast where they watch a classic movie and a cult movie for their ribald discussion. This week the classic is Billy Wilder's "Sunset Blvd." and the cult movie is the alien-leech-exploding-head 1986 film, "Night of the Creeps." Can both find a way to be slightly boring? We'll find out!

Episode 261 includes:

-Is fake boob prostetics in movies and TV getting better? WHAT AN AGE WE LIVE IN.

-Ben recommends "Come to Daddy" and not "Groupers."

-Nate thinks "Extraction" is a mix of cool movie violence and real-world serious violence that doesn't quite work.

-Classic Movie -- "Sunset Blvd." (1950)

-The guys discuss Billy Wilder's classic about a faded Hollywood star trying to make her big comeback.

-Cult Movie -- "Night of the Creeps" (1986)

-It's got alien slugs, head explosions, gratuitous nudity, so why does this movie seem so dull?

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are recording soon, but since we have the space, enjoy one of the newer editions of Ben and George's podcast, "Saturday Night Jive," where the brothers watch a movie starring an SNL alum, and 2006's "Zoom" might just be the ultimate "Saturday Night Jive" movie. Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back with their social distanced revamped podcast where they talk new movies they've seen, including a classic and cult movie that they have not have ever watched before. This week the guys discuss the 1970 hit "Joe" with Peter Boyle as a violent conservative crank, and the cult movie of renown is 1975's "Bug," the last William Castle-produced movie about killer intelligent fire-starting bugs.

Available on iTunes and Spotfy

Episode 260 includes:

-R.I.P. Brian Dennehy, the dad from "Tommy Boy."

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have had to retool under their social distancing, and with the lack of new releases for the present time being, the guys are taking the extra free time to catch up on older movies they haven't seen, both classics and cult curiosities. The guys watch much hyped WWII romance "Casablanca" and then the world's most famous mime killing people and reanimating their bodies in the horror film from 1974, "Shanks." Are they classics or are they... hot garbage?

Available on iTunes and Spotify

Episode 258 includes:

-Nate introduces the new show format and offers his takes on recent 2020 film watches for "Guns Akimbo" and "The Hunt."

-Classic Movie: "Casablanca" (1942)

-The guys discuss, in separate parts, their assessment of a movie widely regarded as one of the greatest of all time, even if it doesn't have vampires in it.

-Cult Movie: "Shanks" (1974)

-Can Marcel Marceau succeed in the realm of cinema as a killer puppeteer? Find out in this William Castle-directed movie that Ben will certainly enjoy more.
