Listen up! Baconsale is once again discussing their favorite scores, soundtracks and composers! Jacob will give Kent and Joel a category (such as most overrated soundtrack, best electronic score and guilty pleasure) and they must each pick a winner for that category. Plus, as an added twist, they are not allowed to pick any of the music they used in our last Soundtrack & Feels episode.
Joel makes Kent angry, Kent is a strangely predictable hipster and the whole thing comes off as a cheap knock-off of Braveheart, to be honest. Enjoy!
Find your super suit (no capes!) and just keep swimming, because Baconsale is ranking Pixar movies to infinity and beyond! Or at least from Toy Story to Cars 3. Kent may hate most of these movies and Jacob may — SQUIRREL! — be apathetic, but if you’re a fan, you’ve got a friend in Joel. TRIGGER WARNING: The Hopper argument rears its ugly head once again.
Press play and enjoy each sappy and silly moment, because this episode will be over faster than you can say “Mike Wazowski.”
Vroom! Vroom! Baconsale is ready to review the Cars sequel that may actually be worth talking about. It takes us a while to get on the right track/subject, but soon we’re talking about Lightning McQueen’s future, Doc Hudson’s past and if there was enough Mater in this movie.
Did Kent hate it? Did Joel love it? Did Jacob actually see it? Press play and find out!
Who’s your TV daddy? Yikes. That sounded a little creepy. Speaking of disturbing things, in this episode we’re making your favorite dads from various television shows battle it out in a hypothetical no-holds-barred fight to the death. And we actually get through our entire bracket and declare a winner in one episode! We’ve brought in everyone from Herman Munster to Homer Simpson to determine who is the toughest fictional father.
And you can click the file below to play along with us as we debate and discuss another epic Baconsale tournament!
Join our expedition as we dig deep into The Mummy movie. Kent and Joel saw the new film (not Jacob, though — Kent wouldn’t let him go) and are ready to talk about if Tom Cruise successfully began the Dark Universe franchise, or if he just looks really, really good while doing so.
As always, we keep all spoilers under wraps during the first 10 minutes, so you can listen even if you haven’t seen the movie. After that point, you may curse us for all the details we unearth.
Hera, give us strength! Baconsale is talking about Wonder Woman in this episode. And we brought along our good friend and clinical psychologist, Dr. Matt, to help us figure out what makes Princess Diana of Themyscira tick. And since we’re discussing Wonder Woman, we’re of course going to bring up Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Lord of the Rings, Serenity and Star Wars. . . wait, what? We may get sidetracked a lot, but in the end, we finally give our review of the 2017 movie, complete with spoiler-free and spoiler-full sections.
Strap on your bulletproof bracelets, adjust your tiara and hop in your invisible jet — it’s time for Baconsale!
Ooooh yeeaaah! We Can’t Hardly Wait to rank the best and the worst high school movies! If you’re Clueless about this genre, don’t worry, we’re here to help. Joel and Kent have each done Some Kind of Wonderful research, and are ready to Say Anything about these films. And while they may, at times, sound like a bunch of Mean Girls who have Never Been Kissed, we hope that you still give this episode an Easy A.
Don’t you forget about us! Press play so we can tell you more, tell you more!
Ahoy, matey! Here be the Baconsale review fer the fifth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Yarrrr! Shiver me timbers! Are you tired of all these pirate clichés yet? Then you may have something in common with the Baconsale crew. Will Jack Sparrow and his jokes save the movie? Or does it belong in the depths of Davy Jones’ locker? Press play to find out!
Be warned! The first 11 minutes are safe. After that, you’re off the edge of the map, mate, because there be spoilers!
We’re not entirely sure how, but Jacob tricked Kent and Joel into doing another episode where he asks them a bunch of bizarre hypothetical questions to test their psyches while further proving he’s a psycho. During this round of psychological experiments/torture, Kent and Joel must answer such questions as who they would save in a viral apocalypse, which celebrity they would switch bodies with and, yes, “what’s in the shopping cart” makes another appearance.
Press play! Or don’t. Because if people don’t listen to this episode, we won’t have to be subjected to these kind of personality tests anymore.
Have you ever gotten Deep Impact confused with Armageddon? Or mixed up A Bug’s Life with Antz? If so, you’re not alone! In this episode, we’re pitting twin movies against each other in a series of versus battles, where we debate and decide which clone film is the stronger one. It’s not always easy — except for Jacob, who always sides with Kent — but it’s fun to watch Kent struggle as he has to defend things like Pixar and Despicable Me.
And if you think we’ve done an episode like this before, you’re wrong. It wasn’t us. It was another podcast back in 1998.
