In this episode we pitch our restaurant musicals in homage to Jimmy Buffett's classic show "Escape to Margaritiaville", we discuss the one and only legend himself Mark J.

This is one you don't want to miss!
Team America World Police
Happy Fourth of July Stonerinos! Sorry about the cancellation last week, technical difficulties led us to scrap our Child's Play episode but we did do a little recap of it this week. We also pulled the rug on Snort and made her watch Team America World Police to keep the toy train rollin, her live reaction is reason enough to give it a listen!
Super Mario Bros (1993)
And we're back! Our little post SUPERSLAMSUMMER break really had us feeling that Summer Vacation vibe so just like that crystal clear pool on a hot June afternoon we're diving back into a new Summer series. Our Summer Daze is just about trying to capture that feeling again and nothing says summer break like video games and nothing says video game movie that should be reviewed on a comedy podcast like 1993's Super Mario Bros. This is a first watch for both Snort and Silent John, how are they going to handle watching a movie with Johhny Legz and Bobby Hosks squander it's full potential? DENNIS HOPPER'S KID NEEDS SHOES!!

Baw Gawd, this is one you won't want to miss!
The Princess Bride SUPER SLAM SUMMER!!!
We've reached our midcard and we're still pulling out all the stops, the cliffs of insanity, ROUS, and Peter Falk inappropriately doing color commentary over the most romantic moment of the film. This week, to pay honor to the 8th wonder of the world[sic?] Andre the Giant, we're watching The Princess Bride. We talk a bit about the man himself before opening the book on the main event. This one is a first watch for both Snort and Silent John so make sure to tune in after the break to hear their first impressions first hand.

As always, spoiler free before and spoilers after the intermission.

In this week's episode, for our millions (and millions) of fans out there, we've got some great insights into the great one himself, so if you're smelling something it isn't that danky skanky, it's gotta be what The Rock...is...cooking...eyebrow. Don't be a jabroni, this one you won't want to miss.
420 Special 2023 - The Big Lebowski
Welcome! Creatures of the Vapor! On this day, we celebrate two things, the haziest of holy months 4/20, and the annual birthday of our beloved Silent John. Sadly, Silent John's birthday wish was for a Nic Cage Vampire movie that didn't suck and, somehow, this movie both didn't suck and did, figuratively and literally. We, however, still got really really high and also saw Nic Cage up to an 11 as the prince of darkness, Dracula. Hoogan may have made an appearance, we didn't stay for the credits.
Some.......BODY once told me it's the month of Four Twenty and we just like to smoke lots of weeeeddddd. In this week's episode, Snort, Dan, and Silent John are celebrating something green that is love and is life, well, two things that are green and are love and life because for Snort's pick of the 420 month we're making waffles and watching Shrek!! Take a hazy nostalgia trip with us to the faraway land of Duloc (there's a song about it) and hear us talk about the ramifications of ethnic cleansing of fairy tale folk, the great debate over native land rights, and a soft pitch for a dark unlicensed Shrek sequel "The SHRekoning" All that glitters is green! Johnny Gorgonzola gets the cheeEeeesseeeee.....
Happy 4/20 month Stonerinos!! It's the most stonable time of the year, we've got lots of great movies and snacks that are groovy so give that huge bong rip a clearrrrr!!! This week we're moving from the SCU (Scream Cinematic Universe) and what better way to ease into the stoney season but with a scary stoney movie. This week it's Dan pick and he picked Idle Hands!! This movie has demonically possessed hands, zombuddies, the inhalation of nutmeg and oregano and the side effects of nutmeg and oregano, and The Offspring? Ok. Roll up a fat one for this super sized episode!

Oscars 2023 - LIVE Green Carpet Special
Roll up a joint and roll out the beige carpet because it's Oscars95(2023)!!! Will the victory of the Fraser taste so sweet after all the flavors? Will Everything Everywhere win Everyaward Everywhere All at Once? It aired yesterday so you probably know the answers to those and other questions we pose in this episode but you'll still get to be a fly on the wall as we live commentate over the green carpet and then hear every gasp and cheer live from our Oscar couch as the awards air.
The Whale/School Ties
BREN-DAN FRAY-ZUR. In this week's episode, Snort, Dan, and Silent John are concluding our Flavors of Fraser series with a look into Brendan's dramatic side, a mini review of The Whale and a full review of School Ties, Brendan's first big dramatic role. This movie has Brendan going toe to toe with some of Hollywood's biggest dramatic actors in their early days, you've got Brendan v. Damon, Brendan v. Affleck, and Brendan v (checks notes) Christopher O'Donnell? While the subject matter of the film was difficult to stomach, the performance from a young George of the Jungle was chef's kiss emoji, you won't want to miss our last stop on the Fraser hype train, toot toot.
This week we're taking a little break from our Flavors of Fraser to take a trip to the cinema and today we're all Snort because we watched COCAINE BEAR! In this special episode Dan, Snort, and Silent John are joined by friend of the show Chaz who worked on Cocaine Bear and he fills the episode with that sweet sweet behind the scenes booger sugar. If you love insider information this is one you won't want to miss!
The Mummy (1999)
Blast from the Past
What's Silent Johnny doing out on a Tuesday night? Odds are it involves the THCinema Podcast and Cheese. This week Silent John, Dan, and Snort begin to taste the Flavors of Fraser TM. In this special series we're honoring Oscar Nominated actor Brendan Fraser with a retrospective of his uncanny acting talents as we traverse through the Genre-verse TM that he's been traveling for the last 30 some odd years. We're also trademarking things now, which is kinda fun but probably not official so feel free to use Genre-verse or Flavors of Fraser. This week's flavor was comedy, with one of the Fraser's early works, Airheads. This movie has everything, Sandler, Farley, Buscemi, two Ghostbusters, Lemmy, Rodney King chants, EVERYTHING!! WARP SPEED MR. SULU!!!!!!!!
50 First Dates
Hope you've got your basketball shorts ready because this week we wrap our Hall of Honors with a stroll down Sandler lane. We do a bit of a deep dive into the filmography of the Sandman, find out how Silent John really feels, and entice Snort into the mix with a bit of Barrymore before we come to terms with our own short term memory issues and watch 50 First Dates.
This week Snort, Dan, and Silent John continue down the Hall of Honors with our newest nominee(s?), Michael Keaton, Michael Keaton, Michael Keaton, and Michael Keaton shine in 1995s Multiplicity, which is less of a movie and more of a highlight reel for Michael Keaton (did we mention he's in this movie?). We also kick off what will undoubtedly be a future episode of Snort Court, Bob Ross v. Mr. Rogers, Dan does a few terrible impressions, and Silent John drops the best one liners of the episode (as is tradition).
2023 is here and so is our first episode of season 3. This week, we kick off our Hall of Honors miniseries, where we pay tribute to actors who are great at what they do on the screen and great at being humans off the screen. In our first HoH episode, we go back to the year 2013 to watch a movie based on a 2010 article about a series of crimes from 2008-2009 where some exceedingly wealthy people got a little less wealthy due to some terrible terrible teenagers, but one of them is played extremely well by HoH Honoree, Emma Watson. We also discuss Limp Bizket, because of Florida.
Bits and Chips 2022
Happy New Year Stonerinos! And what a great year it's been! We've seen some good movies, some bad movies, some worse movies, and somehow some worse than that movies. We've thrived through the heat of the Summer of Smith and walked the Path to Pattinson, celebrated Spooky Season and all the Holidaze, and had Friendsgiving with our favorite fan Chaz. Thanks to everyone for a great year and here, presented with some context, is our year end wrap show, Bits and Chips.
Oh look! Another comedy movie review podcast! But this one's got weed. Snort, Dan, and Silent Jon breakdown a movie weekly, everything is fair game, new releases and classics alike, we discuss our expectations for the upcoming viewing and then pickup thereafter and breakdown what we watched. Spoilers after the midbreak. Come over and say High!
Gremlins 2 - The New Batch
It's over, it's done, put away your Nakatomi Plaza Advent Calendars and lock up Mariah Carey for another year. In an excuse to tie the two together, we watched Gremlins 2 The New Batch, in celebration of last year's Christmas Gremlins viewing, Dan also manages to loosely make this a New Year's Eve movie. This movie literally has everything that a coked up Stephen King could hope for and a twist at the end that can only be described as "why".
The Mean One
"The Mean One" was the film, a holiday tale
But alas, it turned out to be quite a fail.
The acting was wooden, the plot was quite thin
And the special effects were downright dim.
But still, we sat through it, munching on our treats
Hoping for a twist, a surprise, a great feat.
But no such luck, the movie was a snooze
Leaving us yearning for holiday booze.
So if you're thinking of seeing "The Mean One" this holiday season,
We'd recommend giving it a pass, for all this episode's reasons.
Ho Ho Ho Stonerinos! Our Christmas sleigh ride continues this week as the potheads take a trip to Pottersville! This movie has Michael Shannon, Ian McShane, Tom Lennon, Furries, Bigfoots, infidelity, and the true meaning of Christmas. We knew nothing walking into this one and somehow knew less walking out, lets go to Pottersville!
Happy Holidays Stonerinos! This week we went to the cinema because Snort chose Violent Night as her gift to the podcast. Silent John and Dan went in as blind as a sleigh ride in a blizzard without Rudolph but came out the other side smiling like kids on Christmas morning. This is one present you are going to want to open! Spoilers after the mid-break.
Son In Law - Fansgiving
Gobble Gobble Stonerinos! It's time to eat oh so much food and be grateful for what you appreciate most in life and what we appreciate most is our fans. In this special episode we're joined by #1 fan Chaz to talk about our Thanksgiving menus, hold our annual gobble off, and watch Chaz's choice for Thankgiving, Son In Law. A manchild dancing around in his PJs, topical Red v Blue conversation, awkward teenage years, IT'S JUST LIKE THANKSGIVING BACK HOME. Gobble Gobble y'all, I don't know how to end this, Happy Thanksgiving.
SPECIAL - Summer of Smith Road Trip
It's getting cold out but the Summer of Smith, somehow, continues. In this episode, live from the road, Dan, Snort, and Silent John make their way to see Kevin Smith live for a screening of Clerks3 and Q&A. On the way, we take questions from our Instagram followers, discuss our merch table hopes and dreams, and wrap it all up with an aftershow still basking in the glow and secondhand smoke of the one true Smith.
Happy Halloween THCini-minions! This week, Snort, Dan, and Silent John watched Halloween Ends so you don't have to! In this episode we have our hopes shattered, discuss the repercussions of over taxation in preparation for Myers incidences, and see cameos from Michael Myers himself in the Michael Myers movie. Halloween ends with Halloween Ends, this is one you won't want to miss.
Spooky Season and our Halloween High continues on this week as we discuss our own personal paranormal experiences, ghostly apparitions and aspirations, the potential hazard of going toe to toe with Zak Bagans and then we watch the ludicrously named HotTopic Horror movie, 1THIRTEEN3 GHOSTZ. This movie has Blood Trucks, Matthew Lillard just spitting everywhere, great production design, terrible terrible terrible CGI, and so many comparisons to previous episode House on Haunted Hill. You don't want to miss this one....it could be your laaaassstttttttt!!!

It's me, it's me, it's sea-son-three. Happy Spooky Season everyone! We're kicking off our third season with a blast of nostalgia being capitalized on! This week we watch the Disney+ release, Hocus Pocus 2. Join us as we get into the Halloween Spirit talking Spirit Halloween, Generic Costumes, Candied Apples, and fucking Mike!
It's that special time of year, Summer of Smith is waning but Spooky Season is close at hand. What better way to transition the seasons, figuratively and literally, by watching Kevin Smith's horror(ish) movie, Red State. There's a lot going on in this movie and Snort and Silent John are David Pumpkins on Kevin Smith right now, so sound the trumpets and don't miss this one!
Clerks 3 - Summer of Smith, Kevin
I assure you, we're crying. In this weeks episode, Snort, Silent John, and Dan have reached the endgame and what an emotional road it's been. We've seen renegade angels & donkey shows, we've journeyed from New Jersey to Hollywood and back to New Jersey, we've made friends and we've lost friends, but nothing we've seen had prepared us for this one two Kevin Smith KO. Not even Yoga Hosers. Join us as we wrap our Summer of Smith, Kevin with what is his finest work, Clerks 3.
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot - Summer of Smith, Kevin
We've reached our penultimate episode in our Summer of Smith journey, and this week Snort, Silent John, and Dan watch Kevin Smith's reunion movie, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, in final preparation for the release of Clerks III this week.

Clerks 2 - Summer of Smith, Kevin
I assure you, we're open! In our Labor Day special we decided to actually appreciate the labor of which it gets it's namesake and who better than our boys Dante and Randall to make us appreciate it.

Be sure to stay til the end for a special message from across the Askewniverse.
Happy Birthday to you! May all of your dreams come true!

Clerks - Summer of Smith, Kevin
I assure you, we're open!! In this week's episode, Dan takes Snort and Silent John on a journey deep into the Askewniverse.
