UNLOCKED: Frotcast 451 – RIP Chadwick Boseman and Bill And Ted’s Craptacular Blowbang



(If you subscribe at Patreon.com/Frotcast, you can get this hot ‘tent while it’s still hot and fresh! We love you! No refunds.) 

Hey all! Time for your weekly dose of content! This week, Vince and Matt watched the new Bill and Ted movie featuring two very decrepit Hollywood icons, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter playing characters that were cultural zombies back in ’89. So you can imagine how stoked we were when the filmmakers decided to keep them exactly the same in this sequel that nobody asked for. Anyway, we have some thoughts about this movie and I promise you they aren’t all as negative as it seems from the description. In fact, there are some good parts that nearly redeem the movie.

Also, we talk the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman. That part is not so funny. So please enjoy the podcast and we’ll see you… in da moviez!1


TEASER – Frotcast 454 Toobin On Sorkin



ATTN: THIS IS MERELY A TEASER. FOR THE FULL EPISODE, SUBSCRIBE AT PATREON.COM/FROTCAST!

This week on the Frot, we’re talking about the hot new Sacha Baron Cohen project currently setting the internet wags on fire. That’s right, I’m talking about The Trial Of The Chicago 7, Aaron Sorkin’s new Netflix joint about hippies, protests, the radical left, broads who need a good talking to, brave men in uniform, and courtrooms. We discuss Sacha Baron Cohen’s bonkers accent (so strange coming from a guy who has spent his life doing weird accents in real-life situation) and the filmography of Aaron Sorkin in general. Sorkin had it all with this project — Boomer heroes, courtroom drama, a packed cast, a premise generally far less obnoxious than The Newsroom… his whole wheelhouse. After years of giving him a hard time we were so ready to finally give him his due. And yet he even managed to make this one kind of annoying at the end.

Before that, we discuss this week’s top story. That’s right, I’m talking about Jeffrey Toobin cranking his hog on a Zoom call. You’d think that would be the perfect joke for at least a week, but now, the internet had to quickly separate into warring camps of which teachable moment this incident best represents. But you remember the Frotcast rule: no hugging, no learning, only lumming. Finally, it’s an episode worth paying a premium for. No refunds.


UNLOCKED: Frotcast 450 – The Prestige, And The Fake Scottish Wikipedia Page



We’re back! Almost! While you wait for our real return, here’s Frotcast 450, now free for the piggies. If you want to hear these in a timely manner, subscribe on Patreon.com/Frotcast. If you’d like to hear us yap about the Sopranos, we have a bunch of new Pod Yourself A Gun episodes for you.

We may not be seeing Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s latest, when it opens (ONLY) in theaters this week, but that’s not going to stop us from discussing his 2006 movie about dueling Victorian-era magicians, The Prestige, on this week’s Frotcast. Is The Prestige an underrated classic or an accurately rated classic? Is David Bowie as Nikola Tesla the best casting? How many fake mustaches is *too* many fake mustaches in a very serious movie about double-crossing magicians? Helping us to answer all these questions is your favorite returning guest, Sean Keane from the Roundball Rock podcast, who always seem to know more about movies than us. Or at the very least, more than Matt.

Before we get to that, though, we have some very exciting news that is very relevant to our love of terrible accents: the recent discovery that the bulk of the Scots language Wikipedia page was actually written by an American teenager with no knowledge of the Scots language. Instead they’re just in poorly-spelled fake Scottish. Honestly this is probably the best story of the year. We also discuss The Comey Rule and the Tiger King movie, and what it’s like spending 18 months working on a movie whose subject matter is already obsolete? Finally, I discuss what I learned from being dragged by autism twitter. Enjoy, and thank you for subscribing! No refunds!
