Episode 76 - 8MM (1999) and The Other Sister (1999)
In 1999, a 70-year-old Andrew Sarris spoke for the majority of critics about the Joel Schumacher-directed 8MM, when he said it  "...is clearly an evil film." Well, Mr. Sarris might have been a purveyor of auteur theory, but he's also a purveyor of being wrong. 25-years-later,  in a deep conversation that dissects this misunderstood Nic Cage gem like never before, Jordan and Nic reassess 8mm and find themselves at great odds with the 1999 critical establishment. But then they watch the punishment film, The Other Sister, and find that some of the time, maybe those critics were right.Music Heard this Episode:"Unsee" -- Mychael Danna"Hollywood" -- Mychael Danna"Missing Persons" -- Mychael Danna"366 Hoyt Ave." -- Mychael Danna"Come to Daddy" -- Aphex Twin Intro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 75 - Detroit Rock City (1999) and The Mod Squad (1999)
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City, and we're here to help! We feel uptight on a Saturday night, the radio's the only light, and we're talking the 1999 Adam Rifkin joint about four 1978 kids who just want to see Kiss play in Detroit. But that's not all! We're also talking 1999's critically-paned cinematic revival of the 60s and 70s counterculture series, The Mod Squad, which one of our hosts inexplicably, unironically, and unconditionally loves. The celebration of 1999 continues on Filmshake!Music Heard This Episode:"Here But I'm Gone (Part II)" -- Curtis Mayfield and Lauren Hill"Detroit Rock City" -- Kiss"Jailbreak" -- Thin Lizzy"Come Sail Away" -- Styx"The Boys Are Back in Town" -- Everclear (Thin Lizzy cover)"Ends" -- EverlastIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 74 - Payback (1999)
Get ready for the big Payback, as we're talking the 1999 Mel Gibson revenge flick, and the 2006 Director's Cut, and 1967's Point Blank, AND the book they're all adapted from, Donald E. Westlake's The Hunter, though mostly 1999's Payback, we promise! Except when we also talk about our punishment movie, 2011's The Beaver, also starring Mel Gibson, payback for Jordan losing trivia last episode. Can Jordan finally get his $70K back in this episode's trivia battle finale, or does he get stuck with a Director's Cut ending of his own making?! All this and more, much much more, and for what, the principle of the thing?Stop it, we're getting misty!Music Heard this Episode"Main Title" -- Chris Boardman"Lynn's Habit" -- Chris Boardman"The Payback" -- James Brown"You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You" -- Dean Martin (written by Russ Morgan, Larry Stock, and James Cavanaugh)Intro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 73 - A Perfect World (1993)
In A Perfect World, this would have been Episode 58 instead of Baby Geniuses, but you've got us driving this time machine, so just be glad this Ford hadn't crashed just yet. Is Costner a god, great, or even a good actor? Is Clint Eastwood immortally badass or is he a not-so-secretly artsy fartsy snowflake? Or does he just want to make his day and get home for dinner? How much Dern can a Dern Dern Dern if a Dern Dern can Dern Dern? All these questions answered (?) and more! Join us as we deconstruct Eastwood's deconstruction of the mythic-outlaw-on-the-run trope and wind up somewhere between knowing "not a damn thing" and wondering can anything really be known and therefore is the supposition of knowing that we don't know "a damn thing" even something that can be relied upon in a world filled with such chaos and violence!!! AHH...Such fun times!Music Heard This Episode:"Big Fran's Baby" -- Lennie Niehaus and Clint Eastwood"Ida Red" -- Bob Willis and His Texas Playboys"Philip's Theme" -- Lennie Niehaus"Guess Things Happen That Way" -- Johnny CashIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 72 -- Go (1999)
You know what wakes me up in the middle of the night covered in a cold sweat? Knowing that you aren't any worse than anyone else in your whole screwed up generation. In the old days, you know how you got to the top? Huh? By listening to Filmshake! This episode, we're talking 1999's Golp Fiction...I mean Go,  directed by Doug Liman, written by the guy who wrote Charlie's Angels and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.  And now the top is down here, it used to be up here... and you don't even know the  difference.Music Heard This Episode:"Fire Up the Shoesaw (LP Version)" -- Lionrock"Angel" -- Massive Attack"Gangster Tripping" -- Fatboy Slim"Steal My Sunshine" -- Len"New" -- No Doubt"Magic Carpet Ride (Steir's 1999 Ride Club Mix) -- SteppenwolfIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 71 - Enemy of the State (1998)
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to Filmshake because we're talking Tony Scott's prescient 1998 action-thriller, Enemy of the State. Will Smith, Gene Hackman, and a Pentagon-full of well-regarded and beloved actors star in this cinematic exploration of government overreach into private citizens' privacy, and also, Jason Lee makes a brilliant exclamation about untoward things being done to a duck. Rather fittingly, yet for no good reason, Jordan and Nic approach this film as off the leash as Jon Voight with a free government pass, like this movie is the lingerie store from this movie. The only privacy left is inside your head, so listen to Filmshake!Music Heard This Episode:"Main Titles (Enemy of the State" by Trevor Rabin and Harry Gregson-Williams"Coal Yard Part 2" by Trevor Rabin and Harry Gregson-Williams"Territorial P*ssings" by NirvanaIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 70 - Clerks (1994)
We're not even supposed to be here today, but that's okay because Filmshake is covering 1994's indie-classic, Clerks! You know, there's a million fine looking women in the world, but they don't all bring you lasagna at work, and neither will we, but we will provide you 90-minutes of Clerks-centric entertainment! That also includes a little bit of  Clerks II and Clerks III discussion, as well as our usual, Happy Scrappy Hero Pup Trivia Battle. You don't wanna miss THE 90s movies podcast talking one of the most 90s 90s movies ever made!

Episode 69 - Hocus Pocus (1993)
Oh, look. Another glorious Filmshake. Makes me sick! A virgin lit the candle, and now two men approaching middle age are talking this early 90s film made for pre-teen girls.  Do we love these three VERY theatrical, Better Midler-led witches, or do we want to burn them alive in the school furnace? Wait, did you think we were talking Clerks this week?TRICK OR TREAT, IT'S 1993's HOCUS POCUS!Jordan is also punished with 1989's Little Monsters. Does he think this Fred Savage-starring children's comedy is the goblin's knees, or does he want Howie Mandel to choke on Doritos?Hey bud, the only way to find out is to listen!Music Heard this Episode:"Main Title" by John Debney"Sarah's Theme" by James Horner, sung by Sarah Jessica Parker"I Put a Spell On You" by "Screamin' Jay" Hawkins, produced and arranged by Marc Shaiman; performed by Bette MidlerIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Top Five Nic Cage Moments!
NOTE: This episode was originally only for Patreon subscribers, but we've opened it up for everyone. Subscribe to our Patreon for more bonus material like this throughout the year at this link: https://www.patreon.com/filmshake*     *     *Two words: Nic Cage. Has there ever been two other words in the history of language that could contain the multitudes that these words represent? Maybe when the ancients were building the tower of Babel and the world's language was confused, there remained slivers of the pure language that contained the secrets to the universe. It's like Nic Cage knew this, changing his name from Nicolas Coppola to Nicolas Cage (after his favorite Marvel character Luke Cage). He knew he'd need to hold back that purity (put it in a Cage, if you will), because otherwise we would have built a tower to Heaven with the ridiculousness and awesomeness that is his filmography.Maybe it can still get us there. Like to Baby-O in Con Air, Nic is here to show us that, yes, God does exist, and He loves Nic Cage.That's good. Because we do too!Here, the other lesser Nic and I each choose our top 5 Cage moments, ranging from the ridiculous and the over-the-top (two phrases you'll here a lot) to the...well mainly more of that. These knobs go to eleven, baby, like no other Filmshake has shaken!Intro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 68 - Dirty Work (1998)
Note to self: listen to Filmshake! Because this episode is one tall glass of love for all things Norm McDonald, especially 1998's Dirty Work. Fat jokes, pee jokes, prison rape jokes, and dead hooker jokes. What is this, the 90s? We even manage to throw some love (one of us more than the other) at 2000's very dumb Norm-starring comedy Screwed. All your 90s favorites are here - Chris Farley, Artie Lang, Adam Sandler, Dave Chappelle, and Bob Saget...wait what? If you like Pina Coladas...I mean, if you like any of these things, then you'll probably like this episode. If not, we just might have to hide fish in your house.Music Heard This Episode:"End Credits" by Richard GibbsIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 67 - Jurassic Park (1993)
It's an episode 65 Million Years In the Making, as the 90s Movies Podcast finally covers 1993's Jurassic Park, arguably the biggest movie of the 90s (all major theme parks have delays)! Join us and special guest, Chaz from Cinema Medicine Podcast, as we talk every single plot point of the film, how it reflects on the book, how it reflects on the other Jurassic Park films, as well as the music, the video game tie-ins, our first experience with the film, a trademark Filmshake nihilism monologue, if you want it, we got it for two hours! Life finds a way, and if it has anything to do with Jurassic Park, we'll find a way to talk about it!We also talk our punishment film, 1992's The Lost World, which is like Jurassic Park if Jurassic Park was not good, as well as engage in an episode-ending dinosaur-centric trivia battle because we do intend to have dinosaurs on our dinosaur tour.Music Heard This Episode:"Journey to the Island" -- John Williams"Incident at Isla Nublar" -- John Williams"Jurassic Park Gate" -- John Williams"Eye to Eye" -- John Williams"Ocean (Submarine Symphony)" - Jon DunnIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 66 - Saving Private Ryan (1998)
On the 25th anniversary of its release, the two guys who brought you phrases like "brain boners," "milady, you've got the chompers of a basset hound," and "Amy want night tickle" are here to talk 1998's critically acclaimed World War II film, Saving Private Ryan.  And who better? Your gnarly boys not only breakdown the technical aspects of Steven Spielberg's direction, but somehow break into a Kantian dialogue pitting Jeremy Benthem's philosophy of Utilitarianism against classical Deontology. I'm serious. Filmshake is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get, and we don't even care if that's the wrong Tom Hanks movie. You also get, very briefly, discussion about our punishment film, 2005's The Great Raid, and of course, as always, an episode-ending trivia battle to the death.Filmshake: We're FUBAR...but in a good way!Music Heard This Episode:"Hymn to the Fallen" -- John Williams"Omaha Beach" -- John Williams"High School Teacher" -- John Williams"Revisiting Normandy" -- John WilliamsIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 65 -- Last Action Hero (1993)
"He's mean, and he'll blast through your screen!" but that's okay, you don't need a screen for Filmshake, cuz we're a podcast, and we're talking 1993's Last Action Hero on its 30th anniversary. We'll try to decide if this *DEEP BREATH*  fantasy action comedy drama deserved to flop harder than Lebron James at the box office (that joke means two things now!), or if it's actually an unsung gem, like Space Jam: A New Legacy  (lol, just kidding Lebron). To find out, we've brought on the world's preeminent Last Action Hero expert, Jackson Boren, to let us know if Arnold Schwarzenegger's venture into the meta should have been a hit (like Michael Jordan's Space Jam) and Jackson's brought a friend. That friend is our punishment film, Arnie's lone directorial effort, 1992's made for TV romantic comedy remake, Christmas in Connecticut. Does it stand on its own two feet, or does it fall violently to the ground at the mere sight of an elbow, like Lebron does? Only one way to find out! Listen to this episode (unless you're Lebron*)!*Just kidding, Lebron, you can listen, but find a chair first.Music Featured This Episode"Jack and the Ripper" by Michael Kamen"The Real World" by Michael Kamen"River Chase" by Michael Kamen"Premiere" by Michael Kamen"Big Gun" by AC/DCIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 64 - Desperado (1995)
It may be rainin' but there's a rainbow above you, you better let somebody love you before it's too late OR SCREW ALL THAT, WHO CARES ABOUT LOVE! LISTEN TO FILMSHAKE INSTEAD! It's the 4th of July, and we're talking 1995's Desperado, which seemed a hell of a lot cooler way back when the Eagles did their FIRST farewell tour, but now that they're on their 60th farewell tour, and Jordan and Nic are a lot older and wiser, does Antonio Banderas not aiming at anyone and still somehow perfectly bullseyeing bad guys who aim right at his chest and can't even hit him with shrapnel sandwiching a sex scene with Salma Hayek that plays like a parody of Last Tango in Paris still look cool? Let's find out together!Also, to hit on all of Robert Rodriguez' Mexico Trilogy (maybe we should have dropped this episode on May 5), we briefly talk 1992's El Mariachi and and even more briefly talk about 2003's Once Upon A Time in Mexico before engaging in a trivia battle that turns out even worse than 2003's Once Upon A Time in Mexico.Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table, SO QUIT RIDING FENCES AND LISTEN TO FILMSHAKE!Music Featured This Episode:"Back to the House That Love Built" by Tito & Tarantula"Canción Del Mariachi (Moreno de mi Corazón)" by Antonio Banderas and Los Lobos"Desperado" by The EaglesIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 63 - The X-Files (1998)
Trust no one, except for Filmshake, the 90s Movies Podcast, as this episode we're covering 1998's The X-Files, aka The X-Files: Fight the Future.  Nic, a lifelong, diehard X-Phile, wants to believe that Jordan will enjoy this film, his first ever X-Files experience. Does Mulder and Scully's late 90s big screen foray hold up 25 years later? Also, even Nic can't put faith in 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe, this episode's punishment film. He does believe in Jordan, though, who fights for the ultimate trivia redemption in the episode-ending challenge. The Truth Is Filmshake!Music Featured This Episode:"The X-Files Theme" -- The Dust Brothers (originally by Mark Snow)"Threnody in 'X'" -- Mark Snow"Crystal Ship" -- X (originally by The Doors)"B.C.

Episode 62 - Hot Shots Part Deux (1993)
Sufferin succotash! It's 2023 and we're covering 1993's Hot Shots Part Deux, which means it's been 30 years since Charlie Sheen worked out nine hours a day for months to fire a rubber chicken from a bow and arrow.  Our guest, Doug McCambridge, from Good Times Great Movies also has to come along because it's a sequel. Doug, however, only wants to pass Part Deux like the world's largest kidney stone, so he can talk our punishment film, 1986's The Wraith, which Charlie Sheen did not work out nine hours a day for, but did film all his scenes in just one day as he was passing through town.

Episode 61 - Blast From the Past (1999)
You might not fall in love with weirdos who you've only known for four or five days, who collect baseball cards, and pee when they see the ocean, and have perfect table manners, but it's perfectly fine to fall in love with Filmshake, as we're talking 1999's Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone-starring romantic comedy, Blast From the Past.  After your two favorite podcast gentleman have a perfectly pleasant conversation about this sweet 'lil champagne cocktail of a film, they talk this episode's punishment movie, ANOTHER 1999 Brendan Fraser film, and not the one where he fights a sexy deceased man. That only leaves one film, and that film is Dudley Do-Right...which one of your hosts likes?Music Heard this Episode:"Adam & Eve Love Theme" -- Steve Dorff"It's a Good Day" -- Perry Como"Mr. Zoot Suit" -- Ingrid Lucia & the Flying Neutrinos"Dudley Do-Right of the Royal Mounties" -- Fred Steiner"Political Science" -- Randy NewmanIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Let's say you're driving along with your family. You're driving along, you're driving along, all of a sudden there's a Filmshake in the middle of the road! Holy Schneikes, we're talking 1995's Tommy Boy and 1996's Black Sheep! It might've taken us seven years to graduate, we might have eaten paint chips and lived under power lines as kids, but we've got Ph. D.'s in 90's, and this episode is better than wearing white gloves while eating a ketchup popsicle. Music Heard This Episode:"Happy Ending" -- David Newman"Superstar" -- Carpenters"Main Titles" -- William Ross"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" -- R.E.M.Intro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Nic and Jordan's Top Five 80's Movies!
Say what? You mean Nic and Jordan don't exclusively watch 90's movies? C'mon! They're dead to me. 90's 4 life. But I guess I might as well listen to this bonus episode where they get busy each making a list of their top five 80's faves, no matter how populist or blockbustery that might shake out to be. Between all these films covered, you'd have enough blue smoke, prosthetic makeup, and K-Y jelly to choke a xenomorph! Honestly, you could do that with just one of these films, but still. Lots of atmosphere here in these parts, be it wacky or just downright dystopian. The Harrison Ford love-fest also continues strong, but which movies will be chosen? Enjoy and let us know your top five 80's films! It ain't the 90's, but it pretty dang good!Intro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 59 - The Fugitive (1993)
What's this? A Best Picture nominee? How did this get in here?!This episode, just in time for St. Patrick's Day, Filmshake talks about an all-time 90's great, 1993's The Fugitive. Does it dye our river green? Does it do a Peter Pan right off our dam? Does it ride the elevated train into our hearts? Wait, who else is there with you, The Fugitive? Is that 1994's Leprechaun 2 as the episode-opening punishment film? Now that sounds like Filmshake.Music Heard This Episode:"Main Title" -- Jonathan Elias"Helicopter Chase" -- James Newton Howard"Kimble Dyes His Hair" -- James Newton Howard, ft.

Episode 58 - Baby Geniuses (1999)
Magnolia. Fight Club. The Matrix.  Baby Geniuses? From possibly the finest year in film comes 95-minutes of cinematic  spit up. 1999's Baby Geniuses defies all convention and standards of decency for so many loads of diaper gravy, Jordan and Nic can do nothing but have fun with this bizarrely poop-obsessed patron request. Speaking of babies, our two Baby Geniuses-surviving hosts also talk 1993's straight-to-video baby dinosaur romp, Prehysteria!, for a few minutes, though this punishment film feels like Citizen Kane next to Baby Geniuses, the Citizen Kane of crap.Baby Geniuses ' poster may tout that "naps are history," but our diaper gravy-induced nightmares will last forever.

Episode 57 - The Cutting Edge (1992)
The Ultimate Love/Skate Relationship might just be between Jordan and Nic, as they rather fittingly have a rather fiery argument about the 1992 romantic comedy, The Cutting Edge. One host thinks this film about bickering figure skaters who fall in love is the best romantic comedy he's ever seen, while the other just thinks it's a rambling, mediocre mess. Will our hosts reconcile by the end to win the gold, or will their anger boil over into an ice-melting inferno?!They also talk about not only 2006's straight to DVD sequel, The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold, but the The Cutting Edge 3 and The Cutting Edge 4...because one of them watched both of those too for some reason. The wintry war of words climaxes in the episode-ending trivia battle, where one of the questions is literally "At what minute and second mark does the alligator show up on screen in the Hallmark Channel original film, My Southern Family Christmas," because this is THAT kind of episode.Music heard this episode:"Finale" -- Patrick Williams"Ride on Time" -- Black Box"Kate Skates Alone" -- Patrick Williams"Apologize" -- Timbaland and One RepublicIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 56 - Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
You know, there's something very important that we need to do as soon as possible. F...ilmshake. Right before we ring in 2023, we're ringing every masked ounce out of Stanley Kubrick's 1999 swansong, Eyes Wide Shut.  No dream is ever just a dream, but is this movie a masterpiece, or is every touch of perceived meticulous genius just a meticulous aesthetic choice made solely for the sake of aesthetics? Also, we're talking 1983’s BMX Bandits, where a teenaged Nicole Kidman rides around with some bicycle blokes to fight crime. Only on Filmshake...seriously, only on Filmshake.Music Heard This Episode:"Musica Ricercata, II (Mesto, Rigido E Cerimoni Ale)" -- György Ligeti"The Dream" -- Jocelyn Pook"Masked Ball" Jocelyn Pook"Baby Did A  Bad Bad Thing" -- Chris IsaakIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

We could go on forever, baby! Our four-flushing carcasses also talk 1997's lousy, lying, lowdown Home Alone 3 for a minute, or rather, Nic does, as he lost the last trivia battle. Will he lose an unprecedented two trivia battles in a row? Maybe we're off our hinges, but listen now to find out!MERRY CHRISTMAS, YOU FILTHY ANIMALS!

You know Filmshake. We're tall. We're kinda kinda tall. We're sorta tall. And we're like always wearing t-shirts. Sometimes. But this time, we're talking 1998's Can't Hardly Wait and Dead Man on Campus with author, Matt Pais. Matt talks his new book, Talk 90's With Me, and then we discuss these two kinda kinda shining examples of late 90's youth culture. It seems some of us really miss 1998.Speaking of miss, guess who loses the episode-ending trivia battle? He's tall. Kinda kinda tall.Find more about Matt here: https://www.mattpais.com/Music Heard this Episode:"Golden Years" -- Marilyn Manson (cover of David Bowie)"Can't Hardly Wait" -- The Replacements"Graduate" -- Third Eye Blind"Dammit" --blink-182"Paradise City" -- Guns N' RosesIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 53 - Night of the Demons 2 (1994)
Were you planning on going to the school dance this Halloween? That's lame! You should throw a party in a disgusting, abandoned morgue on the outskirts of town instead!...or you could listen to Filmshake. We're talking 1994's Night of the Demons 2, where some stupid, horny teenagers decide to throw a party in a disgusting, abandoned morgue on the outskirts of town instead of going to the school dance. We also talk the original 1988 Night of the Demons, where some stupid, horny teenagers throw a party in a disgusting, abandoned morgue on the outskirts of town instead of going to the school dance. For no apparent reason, Nic also recaps 1997's Night of the Demons 3, and 2009's Night of the Demons remake, where some stupid, horny teenagers throw a party in a disgusting, abandoned morgue on the outskirts of town instead of...There's also the episode-ending trivia battle, which may be more horrific than every Night of the Demons movie combined.Special thanks to patron, Doug McCambridge of Good Times Great Movies, for requesting we cover this movie.Music Heard this Episode: "Stigmata Martyr" -- Bauhaus"Rapture" -- Morbid Angel"Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare - All)" -- Type O NegativeIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

The President recently declared the national pandemic over, but does he even 90s?! Doesn't he know we're just one South American spider away from an eight-legged army biting us all to oblivion? What about Motaba-infected monkeys that will always be there for you with a highly-contagious, eye-bleeding virus? Hasn't he ever watched 1990's Arachnophobia? Hasn't he ever seen 1995's Outbreak? Well we have, and we're here to talk about them with our bug spray and tranquilizer darts in hand...but will we use these implements of pandemic prevention on each other in our episode-ending trivia battle?

Episode 51 - Ninja Scroll (1993) and Surf Ninjas (1993)
It's our Ninjasode! Even if we weren't a podcast where you literally can't see us, you literally wouldn't be able to see us because of the skills we learned from Jubei in 1993's Ninja Scroll, and Tone Loc and Rob Schneider in 1993's Surf Ninjas! We can throw ninja stars! We can make ourselves invisible! Wait, Jubei's actually a samurai and Tone Loc is just a rapping police officer? Rob Schneider doesn't even know karate?! We've been lied to!!!That's okay because this episode is awesome. Jordan and Nic talk about their history with anime, their anime favorites, and the two movies above. There's even a special "lightning round" version of their usual trivia battle. They might not be ninjas, but no one can argue against this fact: they are indeed podcasters...and you cannot see them.Special thanks to patron of the show, Anthony, for requesting these movies.Music Heard this Episode:"Hit the Coast" -- Tone Lōc"Pursuit" -- Kaoru Wada" Eight Warriors of the Demon Clan" -- Kaoru Wada"Somewhere, Faraway, Everyone Is Listening to a Ballad" -- Kaoru Wada"Death or Glory" -- The ClashIntro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment

Episode 50 - Clear and Present Danger (1994)
Executive Orders state that you must listen to Filmshake’s new episode on 1994’s Clear and Present Danger. You must fulfill your debt of honor and listen to Jordan Courtney and Nicholas Loup discuss this Harrison Ford action flick that Nic loves with the net force of a thousand Red Octobers. Listen without remorse as they briefly discuss how 2002’s The Sum of All Fears is not as good as Clear and Present Danger, then face off in a brutal trivia battle where either could end up dead or alive, as they fight with the fury of a bear and a dragon in their violent patriot games. Will there be six rainbows in the sky after their vicious battle to prove who is the real cardinal of the kremlin? Is this episode description making Tom Clancy roll over in his grave, or is his ghost recon just happy we didn’t try to shoehorn Armored Cav: A Guided Tour of an Armored Cavalry Regiment into it?Listen to Filmshake!Music Heard this Episode:"Main Title/A Clear and Present Danger (Film Version)" -- James Horner"The Ambush (Film Version)" -- James Horner"Second Hand Copter" -- James Horner"The Mission/If We Could Remember" -- Jerry Goldsmith"Truth Needs a Soldier/End Title" -- James HornerJoin our Patreon for bonus episodes!Follow us @90smoviespod on Twitter!Intro music - "If" by Broke For FreeConnect with us!PatreonTwitterFacebookEmailLinktr.eeLetterboxd - Nic & JordanThe Nicsperiment
