Treatment 239 – Judge Dredd (1995)

rob-schneider-judge-dreddThe Matt & Doug Show, aka Schlock Treatment, kicks off its annual tradition of calling September some other word that starts with S-tember. This year, you’re in for a real treat, because it’s Stallonetember! We’re running hard out of the gate, too, into the near future¬†dystopia of…

Judge Dredd!

Doug sentences Stallone to star in the greatest biopic of all time!

Matt submits evidence on Judge Dredd’s 1,000 Strange Choices!

Next week: Stallonetember tunnels ahead as we try to reach Daylight!

Treatment 146 – Dreamscape

DreamscapeIt’s week two of Schlocktober, and as we work our way down the listener’s poll, we get closer and closer to giving you the listener exactly what you want the most. I mean, Re-Animator, you sick-o!

Anyhoo, before we can get to the number one pick, we get to work through the other titles, and that means this week is time for the number 3 choice!!

Dreamscape

Dennis Quaid stars in this film that causes lots of controversy amongst the guys this week! Seriously, there is arguing galore! Well…there’s mostly arguing between Marc and Matt, but you get the idea.

DRIFT OFF TO SLEEP… when the mail segment devolves into a 30 minute side-track about iTunes and Orville Redenbacher!!!

SHIFT UNEASILY… when Marc complains about Donald Pleasance not being in this film, and this makes Matt rather angry!!!

AWAKE SCREAMING… when Doug and Matt take a stand against this film, calling it “not horror,”¬†Marc argues that he was scared, and Kirk tells everyone about his insect nightmares!!!

You can find all of the Schlocktober films on Netflix Instant, for now! So, head over there to see them all! Also, I almost don’t dare to mention iTunes after this week’s episode. But, you get the idea. If you’re into Stitcher, we also appreciate people boosting our ranking there by favoriting us and giving us thumbs up!

Next Week: The Poll’s second runner up is next, with The People Under the Stairs!!!

 

Treatment 51 -Flash Gordon

And so it begins…we enter the realm of films that are basically vehicles for the band Queen. And what a vehicle it is…cherry red, tricked out, a classic and an oddity all in one.

Flash Gordon

We decided to cover this mostly because Doug is a HUGE fan of it. Naturally, we agree that it’s a really fun film. It’s campy, but not stupidly so. It’s over-the-top, but not self-conscious. It’s got one of the best rock scores in film history.

DIVE… into an episode that has Doug singing falsetto…or at least trying to!!!

DESTROY… your preconceptions about coffin design!!!

BORE… into the brain of Doug, Marc and Matt as they discuss what Queen soundtrack is truly the best!!!

As always, find Flash Gordon on Netflix to watch instantly. Amazon has it in their on demand library, as well as on DVD…check our store to find those. Also, be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and drop us a rating if you can!

Next Treatment: We bring the Queen soundtrack showdown, by covering Highlander!
