56: Puppet Master 8: The Legacy (2003) (MIW8)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 56. (Originally aired 8.31.14)

In this installment we are forced to revisit the first 7 Puppet Master movies against our will because this movie is a fucking clip-show. Shame on you Charles Band, shame on you. We mostly discuss Josh Hartnett and how we haven't seen him in a while. This movie was a pointless piece of shit that apparently starred the Dos Equis Most Interesting Man In The World dude. Don't waste your time watching this.

55: Puppet Master 7: Retro Puppet Master (1999) (MIW7)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 55. (Originally aired 8.24.14)

In this installment, you know what? Fuck it. In the 7th movie they rewrote their own history more times than a drunk grandpa making up war stories. This one made absolutely no sense, from the opening in 1944 to a random event leading to a flashback to 1892 that involves first draft versions of the puppets we know and love, bad guys from first century Egypt that look like the strangers from Dark City but sound like Darth Vader, to a completely foreign cast that couldn't speak in any accent or act at all. Holy shit. I'm so exhausted from writing that sentence that I think I'll start over. In this installment we watched Puppet Master 7 and it was 7 times worse than the first one. I've done the math and it's true. Want proof? Watch it.

54: Puppet Master 6: Curse Of The Puppet Master (1998) (MIW6)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 54. (Originally aired 6.22.14)

In this installment, we watched the 6th Puppet Master movie and had a hard time keeping our shit together. This was the most poorly made PM movie yet but it was more enjoyable than all the rest combined. This movie follows Tank, a child-like retard as he becomes a puppet maker, sex machine and eventually the puppet master. This movie was released in 1998 but it appears to have been 1992 pretending to be 1943. It was a confusing shitpile of a movie.

53: Puppet Master 5: The Final Chapter (1994) (MIW5)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 53. (Originally aired 8.10.14)

In this installment, Phoenix and Richard realize that you CAN put out the exact same movie with a different title and not be called on your bullshit. We spend most of the time doing Michael Caine impressions and talking about nonsense and about 1/3 of the episode is about the actual movie we watched. Enjoy!

52: Puppet Master 4: The Demon (1993) (MIW4)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 52. (Originally 8.3.14)

In this installment we barely watched Puppet Master 4: The Demon. It was terrible. To be honest, most of this episode is just bullshitting about randomness instead of talking about the movie. We had to do this to avoid going insane. 

51: Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge (1991) (MIW3)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 51. (Originally aired 6.7.14)

In this installment we watched part 3 of the nonsensical series, Puppet Master. For the third movie in a row the writers of this series have re-written the history of their only overarching human character; Toulon. This movie is basically what would happen if Anne Frank's story involved more puppets and slightly less Nazi's. Fucking boring movie. 

50: Puppet Master II: His Unholy Creation (1991) (MIW2)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 49. (Originally aired 4.25.14)

In this installment we continue to the sequel to Puppetmaster. However; things turned dim as we quickly realized the production values and acting talent took a quick swan dive for the sequel. This movie was a baffling mess of murder, rambling and sexual confusion that left us hopeful for part 3. Mostly, we were confused why Darkman was the puppet master in this one. Either that or Chevy Chase as the invisible man. Not really sure what happened in this one but we think it involved real dolls. You know, those dolls that Asian guys pay to have sex with.

49: Puppetmaster (1989) (MIW1)

UPDATE - Originally this was Midnight In Wonderland video episode. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 49. (Originally aired 4.23.14)

We watched Puppetmaster and now we can predict the future of puppetry. It's a dead art, turns out. On this cross-over show (Richard from Midnight With Robert Shaw and Phoenix from Loitering In Wonderland) we go through the Puppetmaster movies one at a time. This is part 1 of 11 before we move on to greener pastures. Meaning another terrible series. Send your suggestions to liwpodcast@gmail.com 

48: X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014)

UPDATE - Originally this was The Phoenix West Show video episode #4. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 48. (Originally aired 9.22.14)

On this episode of The Phoenix West Show, I decided to watch a movie that was recent enough to hold your attention. I watched X-Men: Days Of Future Past. The most confusing title since Speed 2: Cruise Control and Major League: Back To The Minors. It's either one or the other, choose one. Is it the future or the past? We may never know. However, I did watch the movie and surprise, for once I enjoyed it. That didn't stop me from making fun of it. Listen/watch and tell me what you think. 

47: The ABC's Of Death (2012)

UPDATE - Originally this was The Phoenix West Show video episode #3. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 47. (Originally aired 3.12.14)

(This is an audio only version of the video show, for video go to youtube.com/liwpodcast) On this episode of The Phoenix West Show, Phoenix breaks down the 2012 movie The ABC's Of Death letter by letter. Awful scene by awful scene. He also curses the name of Ti West because he's a terrible person. Stay tuned for more advances as far as the video/production goes.

46: You're Next! (2011)

UPDATE - Originally this was The Phoenix West Show video episode #2. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 47. (Originally aired 1.26.14)

(This is an audio only version of the video, for video go to youtube.com/liwpodcast) This time I focus my hate on 2011's You're Next which was actually released in 2013. Which should tell you something. This was was very pointless and slow which made for a recipe for booze.

45: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

UPDATE - Originally this was The Phoenix West Show video episode #1. When that show merged with LIW it became LIW episode 45. (Originally aired 1.22.14)

I'm going to put The Phoenix West show on here for your listening pleasure despite the fact that it is a video show. If you like what you hear go to youtube.com/liwpodcast for more. For episode 1 I watched The Hunger Games: Catchign It was a real treat. These will be shorter in the future. Hopefully. That's not a promise. (Spoiler alert: the episodes do not get shorter.)

44: Jason X (2001)

It was our Halloween episode so we watched Jason X and now we are confused why cowboys exist in the year 2455. Is your horror movie franchise starting to slip in the rental department? Fuck it! Head to space! That's what Jason X does for some reason. It follows the footsteps of other horror movie franchises Leprechaun and Hellraiser. This movie felt like soft-core porn without the tits. Although there is male nipple play that we found very erotic. Erotic and completely necessary in the middle of an already ridiculous plot. 

43: Timecop (1994)

We watched Timecop and now we have a craving for a guy doing the splits in short shorts. This movie is amazing. It managed to be a movie about JCVD kicking people in the face while not ONLY being a movie about JCVD kicking people in the face. It has an insane plot that they barely touch on. More time is spent explaining the fact that a man wants to become president. We recommend watching Timecop.

42: Mortal Kombat (1995)

We watched Mortal Kombat and found out that Joe is basically a bottomless pit of information about the series. Odd for a man that's done so little mortal combatting in his life. This is the fighting movie for people that love spelling errors. 

41: Cursed (2005) (Ryan)

I watched Cursed and now I want to know where the holy fuck Joshua Jackson went. Is he on the Josh-island with Josh Hartnett? Oh, plus there is a bit of news on the show front after the review so listen up!

40: 47 Ronin (2013)

We watched 47 Ronin and liked 12 out of the 47. This movie stars the white devil. It's about roning. To be honest, we weren't really sure what it was about. Something about righting a wrong that can only end in mass suicide. Fucking stupid. It was The Last Samurai mixed with 300 and TMNT 3. Terrible shit all around.

39: Jack And Jill (2011)

We watched Jack And Jill and now we know that Adam Sandler was womb-mates with Satan. This movie was the reason the podcast was created and we finally got to it with episode 39. Hooray for us! The best parts of the movie were seconds before the credits and then during the credits. What a middle finger to us.

37: The Expendables 3 (2014)

We watched The Expendables (in the world's smallest theater) and now we want to hit up the gym and fill our mouths with cotton balls. Or just dude balls. This is the most homoerotic movie to hit cinemas since the last one. This movie was just 2 hours of boring. Oh, plus this is our homage to Robin Williams episode. We don't talk about him much in the episode because when we recorded it had just happened but the episode is bookended by his clips. Enjoy.
