070B Side Slop: The New Kids
If you thought the Tanners had a hard time at public school then I think you should look into Aunt Becky's dark past. This week we learn about The New Kids.
George a giant gorilla that's definitely not King Kong teams up with a crocodile? Wait that's not right. George teams up with a giant lizard-not-lizard that's definitely not Godzilla and a wolf? What the hell? And the Rock plays a primatologist? Thats Rampage y'all.
055 Tomb Raider (2018)
After losing a grog drinking competition to Professor Groglots the Drinktackular Orc The Slop lost track of its surroundings, personal history and sense of object permanence long enough to watch Tomb Raider! A film we probably had never seen before!
050 Silent Hill
We now venture one jaunty pop-and-lock step in time forward into a previously unexplored sub-genre of video game film... the video game horror movie! Get you're stethoscopes & hot cop badges ready because we're going to throw this baby into the well in Silent Hill!
Now that we're all over the shock of not living in a world where the 87th most attractive woman of 2001 actually exists... we have to get our asses to mars.
048 Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
Fatigued by all the running and jumping from last week Jon, Jason and Mack venture into the blissful surreal world of eco-sci-fi-action in Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Hopefully "the spirits" are whiskey and "within" means my stomach.
046 Wing Commander
Star Log Entry #0205-1999. This week Wing Commander Deveraux is being a total jerk bag again. She told me to wash my underwear out and said I can't play bumper fighter anymore. She's such a drag.
I'm going to run away.
- Todd "Maniac" Marshall XOXOXOXOXO
045 Mortal Kombat
In an epic showdown for the ages Jon & Jason go toe-to-toe with death risking annihilation. But when the critical moment arrives they refuse to accept the match saving the day! In this weeks episode the mega-super-ensemble film Mortal Kombat lurks in the shadows taking the form of gummy worm waiting to attack!
043B Side Slop: Critters III

035B Side Slop: Leviathan
Deep in the sea there is a monster hiding in the most unlikely place... Hiding under 10 million pounds of pressure... in a boat... with a safe... in a bottle... of triple distilled horror. Leviathan will haunt you until you only have 5 minutes of the movie left. This week Jon and Jason take a break from their normal routine to examine the Leviathan.
028B Side Slop: Critters II
If Tremors and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes got busy and a made a furry monster baby... and that little jerk is hungry. That baby would be named Critters 2: The Main Course
021 Lake Placid
After meeting a displaced Betty White in Hard Rain we wanted to summer with her at her lake house. We arrive and meet her for lemonade and cookies before Sheriff Hank comes and ruins our lovely picnic. O.F.F. is totally a jerk about Betty's unlicensed pets and it just turns into a whole thing. Let's join Betty as she fights the man in order to keep her happy family together.
019B Side Slop: Critters
On a very special Side Slop Jon and Jason finally meet. It's like Cinema Slop has all been one long time travel episode of Doctor Who and we just finally were introduced after a years long romance. If that sort of sentimentality doesn't get you in the cockles... Wait! There's more! We also bring in Special guest Alisa. Her official duties as Jason's wife make the aforementioned romantic rendezvous a little awkward but to break up the tension we played Critter-ball. It's like soccer in that you try to kick the small round thing and Jon is bad at it!
019 The Adventures of Pluto Nash
Last time on Wonder Woman Rosario Dawson was a literal superhuman... today we follow Regular Rosario to the very special location of THE MOOOOOOON. She lands with a hope, a dream and a just enough moxie to be a singing superstar. Now that we have taken the time to establish that lets find out what it has to do with real estate!
Tony Todd does a great vanishing act in Shadowdbuilder but when he goes into the magic box with no mirrors where does he emerge? This week we find out that the answer is a tenement in Chicago.... lets check out Candyman!
Last time Michael Rooker was a cop in The Replacement Killers. Today he is a hired gun... for the Lord! That's right! We ARE watching the seminal breakthrough Bram Stoker classic Shadowbuilder. Old Rook has to stop an evil cabal of Catholic Satanists from plucking three hairs from the head of a stigmata-baby and chanting real loud at a couple of sticks summoning a sentient humanoid shadow-demon impersonating the space cowboy Spike from the spaceship Bebop to open the door to hell... ya follow?
014 The Killer
Last week Danny Lee was searching for something and he caused the death of nearly everyone in the world. This week Chow Yun-Fat causes the death of nearly everyone in the world which makes him search for something. There has to be something meaningful in that dichotomy. Join us as we discover the disappointing answer to that mystery in The Killer.
013 The Mighty Peking Man
Last week we watched in awe as Ni Tien conspired to build a log cabin out of corpses in what can only be described as a Corpse Mania. Naturally the corpse pile was just a framing device for the cousin of a guy. So naturally this week we follow that guy into the mountains where we heard there was a Kong.. no wait.. a Mighty Joe... no wait... a Mighty Peking Man... on the loose.. lets see what happens.
012b Side Slop: Suspiria
Jon said to Jason one too many times "thats a Giallo thing" so now were gonna do a Giallo! In this weeks Side Slop we check out Suspiria a movie where a dance maverick uses her dance skills to buzz the witchy-tower of the stuffy dean. Thats close enough. Find out what Suspiria is all about at the same time as Jason. Check it out.
012 Corpse Mania
Last week we enjoyed what in hindsight was a completely uncontroversial and fun blaxploitation/James bond style globe hopping adventure starring Ni Tien as the cute as a button but deadly serious martial arts skilled sidekick of cleopatra Jones. Let’s hope this week things are just as cheerful and carefree as they were in Ms. Tien’s heroine kingpin busting days. We join the necrophilic adventures in progress in Corpse Mania
011 Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold
Last week Stella Stevens was bested in single combat by Mom... it wasn't a fair fight. Stella had no idea what about going down at the time and naturally being a lycan-granny is against the rules of most boxing commissions. But you can't keep a good woman down and so this week Stella Stevens is back and she's going to challenge some fool to a duel.... in the old school.... its pretty cool... stay tuned for Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold
Claudia Christian handled herself commendably against the reanimated corpse of a rouge policeman last week so naturally we asked ourselves, "Self... how do you think Ms. Christian would fare against the most fabled beast of yore? (Dramatic Pause) The Lycanthrope! (Music cue)". Well if you, like some of us at Cinema Slop, have spent the last decade writing Cmdr. Susan Ivanova vs Hideous monster fan-fiction then you're in luck because we finally know the answer! This week... its The ultimate military officer vs. The Matron of Satan... Mom!
008 It’s Alive
Last week we found out that a corpse can be the most important plot point in a movie other then Weekend at Bernies. Since the corpse was so dang important we wanted to see what other acting gigs required those sorts of acting chops. This week we meet a very much alive Patrick McAllister in the delivery room where the babies are alive... and thats somehow an issue?
005 Maximum Overdrive
Today we followed the garbagy pong of Emilio Estevez from Men at Work to a small highway truck stop where Emilio has gotten promoted all the way to line cook. Things start getting weird for our country diner when the earth goes through a comets tail... yep. Those two ideas are directly connected in Maximum Overdrive.
004 Men at Work
In todays episode we followed Keith David out of the wintery hell of Antarctica in The Thing(1982) into the comparatively pleasant life of a garbage man in Men at work.
Carl Taylor and James St. James have pellet based hijinks and eco-mayhem ensues in this weeks literal garbage movie Men at Work in which there is shockingly little work being done.
003 The Thing (1982)
After battling the forces of evil in San Fran Kurt Russell's Pork Chop Express has arrived at its final destination, the Arctic. It's a wintery hell-scape but old Kurt likes it just fine. Just don't mess with his shack, his scotch or his bodily autonomy. Let's sit back and watch...
002 Big Trouble in Little China
In todays episode we have followed the delightful Victor Wong from his previous home in Perfection Vally to San Francisco where he and his misfit-band of friends will have a mystical adventure that begins as all great stories do.... in an attorney's office.
Episode One: The Source
Jon and Jason Have arrived on the internet 15 years fashionably late. We're here to give a little love and a little salt to the world of pork products.. specifically to the Bacon product category.
Our podcast is simple. Using a Process called Backward Baconing, we start with His Eminence himself Mr Kevin Bacon in the 1990 Classic Tremors. After we have enjoyed this film completely we will choose our favorite character/actor from the film and select a film from their catalog.
There is no guarantee our choices will be wise, informed or even logical but it should be a good laugh. Join us on our choose your own adventure style journey into the unknown corners of cinematic pig pen from whence Bacon came.
Todays Episode Tremors
We join a small town already in progress as it discovers, "We've got worms".
