If you’re listening to this podcast/reading this blurb chances are that 1995’s GoldenEye was the first James Bond movie that you can remember being released in your lifetime. Some would say it’s actually a pretty decent movie. To find out Ryan, James, and Max revisit the 1st Pierce Brosnan helmed movie to see if this is true and to check up on how the movie has aged over 20+ years. Surely all the references that Russia is no longer the USSR won’t be glaring obvious right?
Merry Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Fesitvus/Whatever from all of us at Good Brews Bad Views! For our second Christmas episode this year we witness a Pre-Mr. Freeze Arnold Schwarzenegger try to buy his son’s love, a Pre-Anakin Skywalker Jake Lloyd, in 1996’s Jingle All the Way. Alongside the rampant commercialism and insanity displayed in this movie James, Ryan, and Max discuss their cherished Christmas presents from years past while Sinbad makes a bunch of jokes that would no longer fly in 2017.
Appropriately timed for both the release of The Last Jedi and the Holidays, GBBV starts off the season with the often mentioned and utterly horrible Star Wars Holiday Special. Joined once again by friend of the show Jordan (Spider-Man 3, Batman and Robin) and foregoing the usual beer for whiskey (something stronger was required) the guys dig in deep with conversations about fandom, representation, gatekeeping, and expanded universes as they suffer through the special with the occasional screams of “why?!?!” and “Who is this for!?!” as the podcast slowly descends into madness.
It seems like after the success of 2003’s Freddy Vs. Jason, Hollywood decided it was time to have all the 80s franchises meet up in one way or another. While the two alien races had clashed in comics and video games it wasn’t until 2004 that two of the 1980’s most iconic sci-fi series meet up in a frozen free-for-all in Alien Vs. Predator. Of course hapless humans that we don’t really care too much about are also in tow for the ride. On the beer side, Max, Ryan, and James enjoy a seasonably appropriate Barleywine that they absolutely could not get enough of: Batch Brewing Company’s All the Fixin’s.
Jean Claude Van Damme is known for many things, however being a French-Canadian former firefighter/hockey player and now fire inspector for the Pittsburg Penguins in 1995’s Sudden Death is not one of them. Hockey and hop head Stephanie joins us this episode as we cheer on the Chicago Blackhawks (as we are not cheering on Pittsburgh) as we enjoy some of her very appropriately named homebrew: Jean Quad Van Damme
Friend of the show Claire joins us for our second Halloween episode as we cheer on Youths making poor decisions in Freddy Vs. Jason.
The horror icon matchup that slasher fans have been longing to see since the stinger of Jason Goes to Hell that took countles rewrites to “work,” the end result… well at least it isn’t Batman V Superman
With the rampant success of the new It movie, GBBV decided to start the Halloween season on a similar note with Killer Klowns from Outer Space. While enjoying the antics of space alien clowns Ryan argues that the only thing creepier than a clown is a moist one while Max and James have a discussion on small town-college relations of years past all while enjoying a tasty blackcurrant saison from Clown Shoes.
