Elves


The season is upon us, folks. The often dreaded but mostly celebrated holiday known as Christmas is here. And it's our very first at the Companeros Compound! Between the spiced rum and red and green M&M cookies, we sat around debating what we should cover for this most holy of holidays. And believe me, we were not coming up short on ideas.

Agreeing that the evil Santa thing was well covered, we dove deep into our VHS archives to see what we had laying around. "Here's an occult themed Christmas movie" said one cast member. "Here's some traditional Nazi Christmas exploitation" said another. "Hey, we haven't done any light incest in a while. Maybe this one will do" said  Drew  another cast member.

We argued. We fought. We drank more rum. All the while one cast member sat in the corner listening while stroking their fake Santa beard. "Guys, listen. There's no need to argue. We can have the occult. We can have Nazis. And yes, even incest. We can watch...Elves!" And that's exactly what we did.

Naturally, we also review the latest and greatest movies coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray, talk about our recent film binges, look at some PG Boobs, Check in with James Best, listen to some possibly awful Christmas Songs on Trial(featuring a breakout performance by our very own Drew Buzzy), and Jake fills us in on that Rambo Christmas cartoon we all forgot existed, and if that's not enough reasons to celebrate, this episode features to the return of original cast member, Roger!

So put some whiskey in that egg nog while you listen in here!

Star Kid



Leave it to Zoey to fuck up our usual rotation of exploitation, action, cult and comedy films by choosing a kids movie. Yet somehow, Star Kid fits right in. Kind of like how the alien suit fits the kid perfectly. But unlike a high tech interface ala Iron Man, this suit features a rather disturbing reverse-necronomicon talking face that's like one inch away from the kids head, making for some truly demented conversations. Featuring a heavy amount of awesome practical effects coupled with hijinx typical of any coming of age story, Star Kid is definitely out of this world! On the other hand, it might just be a shitty 90's movie that was forgotten for a good reason.

But if kids in organic robot suits isn't your thing(and you're not alone judging by the cast reaction)don't worry. We've got the goods on everything from Clark Gable's bad breath to Milla Jovovich's tits to Drew's crush on Daniel Radcliffe. Not to mention the best and worst releases coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD, some truly awful(or excellent)music, James Best's List of the Best Movies Ever, Companeros Mini Movie Review and so much more! Check it out here.
