I'm LATE. I know, I'm sorry. Hopefully, these recording issues won't happen if I start recording with people in-person. Anyways, Marie Trudeau joins me to discuss Christmas in Harmony. A movie I was kinda down on until Marie convinced me that this movie is actually all things considered, pretty good!
Megan and Alonso discuss out-of-the-box Christmas movies and Christmas movies you may have missed. And Megan fears for her life in the middle of a serious thunderstorm. :)
Megan and film critic Alonso Duralde (@aduralde) discuss The Christmas Train. A movie about a romantic train ride with one wild twist!
Back in 2019, I did a 1 episode per DVD chapter of the While You were Sleeping DVD. You can listen to the episodes for DVD chapters 1-6 behind the paywall at patreon.com. You can also listen episode "N/A" on patreon where I list every Hallmark Christmas movie I saw that year (2019) and hear me sing, "What are you doing New Years Eve?" in that episode (so cringey).
Anyway THIS episode available on the main feed features Ross Weisman (on twitter as @misterweisman), friend of the pod, and is a good time for all!
Ryan Kane (@FBC_PapaMink) joins me to discuss how "Secret Obsession" could be made into a video game, and I reveal to Ryan what my Secret Obsession is: the shots Michael Moscowitz's keyboard as he plays in the garage scene of "The Princess Diaries." Those shots are to let you know that Michael wants to "live in a world where you can order M&Ms on a pizza." Otherwise, how would you react when Mia sends a pizza to his place with "SORRY" written out in M&Ms? You wouldn't get it. More details in the episode, trust me, you don't want to miss it.
What's something from your pre-teen years that's burned into your memory? For host Megan Tripp, it's the movie "The Princess Diaries," and not even the whole movie, just a few key scenes. I talk about one of those key scenes in this episode. Also, here's a link to the song, "When Did Your Heart Go Missing."
Host emeritus of Best Acquaintances and of Media-eval, Ollie Brady, joins me to discuss the 1996 HBO movie, Rasputin. Marvel at our Alan Rickman impressions, our cold takes on the character of Severus Snape, and then go out and watch this movie on YouTube, you'll probably like it!
Ever wonder what it would be like behind-the-scenes of a Lifetime movie? Then listen to this interview with Emily Bennett of historic indie Sundance Books which was a location used in "Dear Christmas." Yes, I owe you listeners the full ep this week, but don't you want the Christmas-related bonus ep sooner rather than later?

Will either John McCoy (@tracemcjoy) or Dan McCoy (@dankmccoy) defeat Tim Hulsizer's (@timhulsizer) 40% on the 2020 Hallmark Countdown to Christmas Quiz? Or will Tim reign supreme? Maybe numbers don't mean anything, and "winning" is the journey to forgiving our older siblings for traumatizing us as youths. Listen and find out!
Minimus Maximus (@minimusmaxim is his +18 twitter feed) joins me to discuss the #Netflix movie #HubieHalloween, a study in what works in comedy, and what doesn't. We also conjecture as to how this movie makes Netflix money. Also, here's the cat, so you don't have to watch the whole movie.
Sorry, couldn't get around to recording a new episode. But please enjoy this episode with John Ryan from about a year ago.
Merry Christmas and Haeg sameah y'all it's Christmas (and Hanukkah) in July!
We watched Mistletoe & Menorahs. A Jew teaches a Gentile about Hanukkah and she talks about fruitcake. @SarahIfftDecker joins me to discuss this offensive?/heartwarming? tale.
It's a real cultural exchange complete with a pitch we make to Lifetime for a St. Patrick's Day/Purim spin-off movie which I'm way more excited for than the movie we watched.
Tim Stevens (@ungajje) and I discuss Death Clique. A Lifetime Original Movie, loosely based on true events. Not as silly as usual, but we have fun discussing the interesting set design choices, and other interesting choices made in this movie.
Chelsie Berio and I watched, "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished" a movie about a man who becomes obsessed with the woman who saves his life, and "helps" her with her tenant, her rival, and her son. Murder and nonsense abound. It's quite a pickle jar.
Flophouse host, Dan McCoy (@dankmccoy) joined me to discuss "Revenge for Daddy," the Lifetime Original movie. This episode was a delight to record and even though this movie was strange, I'd say the movie itself was delightfully baffling.
Marissa Flaxbart (@sweetvalley) joined me to talk about InstaPsycho. A movie about telling your HS bully to #suckit. And accidentally letting your friend die. The stakes really ramp up on this one!
Life is crazy right now, so I didn't watch a movie. Instead, I reached out to Sarah, host of Media-eval, for a chat about podcasts and whatever else was on our minds.
With #Megxit in full-swing, could I resist a "Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal"? No! Fortunately, I have Tim Hulsizer (@glamcrackers on Twitter) to talk about this C+ movie. Will it make us feel anything despite being very mediocre? Maybe!
We also discuss the Buzzfeed article contrasting how Kate and Meghan are written about in the British press. Meghan's treatment by the press is as bad as you've heard.
A re-release of July episode. I'm still working on unpacking boxes guys!
Neither Sarah Ifft Decker (@sarahifftdecker) nor I know anything about science or American history. But she knows about medieval churches and I know about farts, so everyone is definitely staying in their lane this episode as we talk about the cheapest zombie movie ever made, Survivorz.
Joel Bakker (@joelabakker on twitter and instagram) and I talk about the movie, Christmas Reservations. Sorry, this episode is later in the month than it should be! Happy New Year All!
Sisters, Kathleen and Megan watched, "Appetite for Love" with college friend Katie. "Appetite for Love" is a Hallmark original. We recorded this roughly 3 years ago. That's right it's another Soundcloud oldie making its way into the main RSS feed.
"Appetite for Love" that seems more concerned about corporate law than about actual romance. Our main character comes back home to ruin an old flame's restaurant just 3 months after his father's death as if breaking his heart all those years ago wasn't bad enough. And we get to talk about the LaBelle Swamp Cabbage Festival.
I have a Patreon-only podcast called, "While You were 'Casting" which is a DVD-chapter by DVD-chapter podcast about the movie "While You were Sleeping." This is the episode about DVD Chapter 4 which I recorded with Dawn, my sister. You can donate to Not Another Bad Movie Podcast on Patreon and gain access to all the episodes of While You were 'Casting here: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3435567
Sisters, Dawn and Megan watched, "Love on the Sidelines" a Hallmark original roughly 3 years ago. That's right it's another Soundcloud oldie making its way into the main RSS feed.
Will Danny Hollendaise... Holloway...Holiday...Holland ever let in Laural his personal assistant? Will Megan ever get Danny's name right? Spoiler alert, yes the two romantic leads get together and no Megan will not get his name right.
Meghan Griffin (@MeggGriffin of megggriffin.com) joins me to discuss "Deadly Influencer." This movie is about a girl who we suspect is will be killed by her social media manager; we suspect this because her social media manager murdered the last friend whose social media she managed. Will we be influenced to give our "likes" over to this movie? Is the result of this "influence" deadly? Listen to find out!
John Ryan joins me again for a Lifetime murder spree of a movie, Best Friend's Betrayal. We give our hot takes on hot drinks, and John explains how the actual justice system works rather than the bizarro universe the movie takes place in where you don't have to go to trial as a person charged with a crime unless you want to.
