Connection from Previous Film: Meg Ryan

The next stop on THE ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Tom wonders much cancer Martin Short's character has by the end of this; Josh concludes that they don't make 'em like they used to; Dan figures out what the world needs most of all!

June 24, 2020

Connection from Previous Film: Michael Ironside
Val Kilmer plays a highly-trained, highly-skilled, and highly-professional Navy aviator; who has to contend with the loose-cannon show-boating ego of one "Maverick" Tom Cruise, as they both vie to see whose gun is top! A loving feeling is lost, the team stumbles upon evidence of dark magic, and everyone realizes that Top Gun might actually be pretty deep – as we start on THE ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Connection from Previous Film: Clancy Brown
A well-needed pallet-cleanser after the bile sandwich that was Pathfinder! Future-marines journey into space to fight bugs and find the anti-fascist satire that keeps going over everyone's heads. Dan and Josh realize that there are as many stars in heaven as there are films with Michael Ironside; Tom's mic still sounds like wet garbage; and everyone agrees that Paul Verhoeven is smarter than all of us!

Connection from Previous Film: Karl Urban
"Native Americans versus Vikings? There's no way that this can fail!" Spoilers: It does! There is nothing good about this film! There are two wolves inside a man, and the team wonders which of them ate the script! Do not see this film!

Connection from Previous Film: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Hopefully you're listening to this episode because you already love us and have listened to EVERYTHING ELSE! If not, we promise it gets better, don't judge us, these early episodes are... not the best.

This week, we compare Movies to fast food restaurants, terribly ab-lib fake commercials, and try to offend every fanbase!

Connection from Previous Film: Ernie Reyes Jr.

If you're watching in order (for the first time) We REALLY recommend starting with Episode Six, or later. These early ones are, again, rough.

This week, everyone's favorite pizza man from TMNTII goes one-on-one with the Great One, as The Rock hunts down everyone's favorite (?) 90s stoner-jackass and plays with some monkeys! Tom speculates that The Rock might actually be a star going supernova; the team smells a sequel; and whatever happened to Seann Willian Scott?

Welcome to Episode One of the FIREPIT Podcast!

Real Quick! We don't recommend starting here, first 3 episodes are... rough. If you do it gets A LOT better! We promise!

Now that's out of the way: We're just three long time friends that get together and watch movies and discuss them. We start with the OG sequel: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II! The team compares Turtles to Turtles; Tom nearly burns a pizza, we all learn how NOT to record an episode.
