Treatment 150 – Godzilla’s Revenge

GodzillaRWe’re back for installment number two of our Thanks, But NO Thanks series (going on all November). It’s Kirk‘s turn, and being the fine, upstanding citizen he is, he noticed a deficiency and corrected for it. He picked our first Godzilla film!!

Godzilla’s Revenge

It’s the story of a small boy, who fantasizes about monsters to escape the drudgery of post-war Japan! It’s too boring being kidnapped by bank-robbers, bullied at school, and living next-door to a whacky toymaker!! Time to go to sleep and dream of rubber monsters and their goofy kids!

CRASH… into Kirk, when he reveals the his fondness for characters who do the weirdest stuff!!!

SLAM… a stack of fun, when Doug and Matt bring the miner impressions yet again, but this time out of spite!!!

HEAD BUTT…. the rock volleyed at you by the giant lobster of despair, when Marc rolls out his catchphrase and gets big laughs!!!

As always, find Godzilla’s Revenge on Netflix Instant, should you be so inclined. It’s available there, current to the posting of this episode. Also, be sure to head over to iTunes and write a review for us! We would love to hear your 5-star words of praise! Also, be sure to subscribe, because next week’s episode is a doozy!

Next Treatment: Marc steps up to the plate and pitches the horrifying schlock classic ROAD HOUSE! It’s Swayzelicious!

Treatment 141 – Planet of the Apes (’68)

ApeLawHey, hey the gang’s all here!

This week finds the whole Schlock Treatment gang together again! Reunited and it feels so good! But don’t worry, it all falls apart pretty quickly, with penis shaming, yelling about ” yes anding,” and  willful grossing out! The good news is that the movie is a cinematic classic (though still pretty schlocky)!

Planet of the Apes

Charlton Heston finally gets his due, as we discuss his scene-chewing performance, Linda Harrison, and the plot of this very confusing flick!

CRASH… into us, as we talk about penises, Dolph Lundgren‘s cum, and eating out decaying corpses!!!

ESCAPE… from your troubles, when we discuss mix tapes, geography, and relativity!!!!

CRY OUT IN ANGUISH… when the show features ten minutes of vamping about Mathlock!!!

You can watch Planet of the Apes on Netflix Instant for the moment. It holds up, so check it out! If you like our show, please write us a review on iTunes, and be sure to favorite us on Stitcher! Then make sure to subscribe for the next episode, since we decided to do a bunch of monkey movies (for no real reason)!

Next Treatment: Join us in two weeks (we’re taking a week off) when we continue our ape/monkey theme by watching the 70s remake of King Kong!!

Treatment 95 – Wild in the Streets

Hey, man! Like some of you cats have been fast and loose with the system! You may think you got the brains, but you got nothin. You’re nothing but a bunch of oldsters trying to figure out which way to face your wheelchairs!! Well, don’t sweat it, baby! We’re gonna fix it so you’re in fat city! Schlock Treatment has the juice for all you mods and rockers out there!

Wild in the Streets

This week’s flick is a political scare piece from the 60s, about youth running amok, and befouling the sacred institution that is the vote! We thought it was apt, what with election season coming up, and our own little vote (for Schlocktober) coming to a close. See those crazy kids take over the means of government and force all the old fogeys  (like 35 year-olds) into LSD retirement homes! The horror!!

LIKE, COOL IT, BABY… when you hear songs like 14 or Fight, Heart and Soul, Little Bit of Soul, Out in the Streets, and so many more sung (badly) on the show!!!

FREAK OUT… as you hear us uncover a sinister conspiracy to hide Australian/Austrian Reptilian Aliens from the public!!!

STICK IT TO THE MAN… by joining Marc, Matt, and Kirk as they discuss the television landscape if there were no old people!!!

As always, Wild in the Streets is available on Netflix Instant. This one also just happens to be streaming free for Prime members on Amazon, find it listed in our store! Then be sure to head to iTunes and rate the podcast. We like 5 star ratings, and read them on the show. Also, make sure you subscribe, so you can join us for SCHLOCKTOBER!

Next Week: The results of the Schlocktober Poll are in, and are revealed on the show. We also do our tiebreaker vote, and reveal C.H.U.D as the movie chosen for Schlocktober Week 1!! See you then!

Treatment 45 -The Mercenary

Oh, man. This is a bad one. I mean this episode is a bad one, not so much this week’s movie. Somehow, we just couldn’t do it this week. We’ve decided to take the bold step of warning listeners to stay away. If anything, just listen to the first and last 10 minutes, and skip the rest. That way you’ll hear us read some letters, and pimp our upcoming Schlocktober movies.

The Mercenary

The film isn’t a bad one, it’s a decent spaghetti western with Jack Palance (our old pal), Franco Nero, and Tony Musante. Frankly, it’s short on schlock. Does this mean it’s too good of a movie for this podcast? Well, we’ve covered better movies, IMHO. But it doesn’t have that special combination of goofiness and incompetence that we come to expect from our films on Schlock Treatment.

WEEP… as the guys try to say something…anything…about this week’s movie, and conversation slowly devolves into a free-form discussion about nothing in particular!!!

LAMENT… as Marc denounces the evil that is Matt‘s weird pair of Charles Nelson Reilly glasses (see photo)!!

BEMOAN… the collapse of all things Shlock Treatment as Doug leaves the room, Matt shuts down, Marc resorts to hurling epithets, and Kirk tries desperately to hold it all together!!

If you are a masochist, feel free to find The Mercenary on Netflix Instant, watch it, and then listen to our show. Frankly, we don’t recommend doing any of those things. About the only thing worth listening to in this entire episode is the announcement of the winners of the Schlocktober Poll! It definitely looks like things are going to get better in Schlocktober, so get on iTunes and subscribe to the podcast!

Next Week: The 3rd place winner in our Schlocktober Listener Poll, Creepshow!!
