Baconsale Episode 155: My Bae Michael Bay

Okay, listener, this show is your fault. You voted and have forced us do an episode where we have to defend Michael Bay, even though we may not want to. Kaboom! However, Kent and Joel brought in Dan Farnsworth, a friend of the show and a legitimate fan of movies like Transformers, The Rock, The Island, Bad Boys and even Pearl Harbor to help us stay positive and not constantly point out how this director’s movies are often nothing but car chases, CGI and explosions. Kaboom!

So crank up the epic music, throw in some lens flares and press that play button in slow motion. Kaboom!

BaconBit: Avengers: Infinity War Review

Jacob is hanging out with Ant-Man and Hawkeye, so it’s just Joel and Kent reviewing the superhero ensemble that is Avengers: Infinity War.

And will Joel simply be wowed by the sheer scale of this culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Don’t worry, the first 15 minutes are completely spoiler-free.

Baconsale Episode 151: The Baconsale Necessities

Let’s get down to business! It’s time for Baconsale to talk about (and sing about) Disney music. For this episode, we have created a list of categories such as best villain song, most irritating song, saddest song and song that is better than the movie. After some reflection, Kent and Joel must go the distance and pick a winner for each one. Meanwhile, Jacob must be feeling the love tonight because he is very generous with his point giving.

Want to play along? Be our guest! Press play and become part of our world. However, if we don’t pick the Disney song you would have picked, just let it go.

Baconsale Episode 149: We Need to Talk About Kevin

We’ve given Kate Beckinsale (Bacon number of 2) a lot of love on our show, but now it’s time for us to give our podcast’s other namesake, Kevin Bacon, time to shine. Kent and Joel (Bacon number of 3) are each going to talk about their least favorite Kevin Bacon movies. Then they’re going to combine their powers and give you a list of Baconsale-approved Bacon films. Plus, as an added bonus, we even play a game of Baconsale live on this episode.

Stop your Tremors! Cut Footloose and press play!

BaconBit: Tomb Raider Review

Video game adaptations don’t have a good track record, but can this latest Tomb Raider film break the stereotype? Kent and Joel saw it, and they’re ready to give their review. Well, Joel would like to give his review. Kent just wants to talk about his crush on the polygons that made up Lara Croft in the 90s . . . and his current crush on Alicia Vikander.

Press play to see if Warner Bros. Pictures has finally uncovered the secret to a good video game movie. And don’t worry, the first half the episode is spoiler-free.

BaconBit: A Wrinkle in Time Review

What? Two BaconBit episodes in one week? We must love you, listener. OR…Kent and Joel really, really wanted to talk about the new A Wrinkle in Time movie. But why? Did they feel like it was a beautiful adaptation of a beloved novel finally brought to the silver screen? Or did they find this film to be a huge mess of color, CGI and close-ups that is doomed to fail? Only Giant Space Oprah knows for sure.

Press play to tesser to the world of Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 145: This Show is Underrated!

About 77 episodes ago we discussed some of the most overrated things on the planet. Now, however, Baconsale is going the opposite direction—we’re talking about underrated things. No, Kent, we don’t mean guilty pleasures and no, we don’t want your hipster picks, either (he has a hard time with that). Our categories today include undervalued boy band members, sitcoms, disco songs, Disney sidekicks, kids TV shows and more!

And we hope you never underestimate how much we love it when you hit that play button!
