UNLOCKED: The Wiener-Less Lion King, With Live-Action Matt And Vince



Here it is, folks, our POSITIVELY NO SPOILERS review of the new “live-action” remake of The Lion King, starring live-action, photoreal versions of Matt and Vince. I’m just kidding about the spoilers thing, you actually can’t spoil this movie because it’s basically a shot-for-shot remake of that cartoon we all know and loved from 1994. We loved it because of the totally authentic African music recorded by famous African musicians Elton John and Tim Rice. Will the remake be as good? Well, nothing improves a cartoon like PHOTOREAL LIONS, I always say. Topics include:

-When you say Jon Favreau “directed” this, what does that actually mean?
-Why don’t the lions have dicks?
-How did Billy Eichner manage to transcend this format that destroyed everyone else?
-No but seriously, why don’t the lions have dicks?
-Who decided that the lions shouldn’t have dicks and why?
-Are we too hung up on the lion-dick thing?

TEASER: Hobbs And Shaw Bonus Frotcast With Matt And Vince



This is a bonus episode! Subscribe and get the full episode at Patreon.com/Frotcast! You can add our premium feed to your podcast app.

We’re back with another banger of a movie review! This week, we saw the Fast and Furious franchise’s spin-off feature Hobbs & Shaw – starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason “The Chimney Sweep” Statham. It was two hours and infinity minutes of non-stop action and roast jokes from two of the franchise’s favorite funnymen. No Vin, no Luda, no Tyrese, NO PROBLEM! The plot is simple enough: Hobbs and Shaw must work together to stop Idris Elba from stealing a virus that will wipe out most of humanity and save a hot spy from certain doom without showing titties or penetration. This episode is extremely spoiler-laden so we are issuing a formal SPOILER ALERT for those of you who love movies but can’t seem to remember even the most basic of plot twists. For those of you who don’t care about spoilers, you can pretty much guess everything that happens minute by minute.

We discuss this movie and the franchise as a whole in this episode so you DO NOT want to miss it. Frot on, my dudes and lady dudes.

Frotcast 414: Larry The Cable Wife’s Horse Prayers, With Dan Ozzi And Ryan Papazian



Were you aware that Larry The Cable Guy’s wife wrote a book of horse prayer? It’s called Unbridled Faith: 100 Devotions from the Horse Farm, and we share this discovery on this week’s Frotcast. Joining us in the Frotquarters this week are music writer Dan Ozzi, formerly of Vice/Noisey, now writing a book on punk, and comedian Ryan Papazian, Matt’s former co-host on Where Eagles Dare, a now defunct podcast about punk. Naturally we tell some Danzig stories, but also discuss Comic-Con and the new trailers for Top Gun, the Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers movie, and of course, Cats, the trailer that single-handedly shutdown the internet for an entire day. We also discuss Oliver Stone’s descent into beautiful insanity and reminisce about the underrated brilliance of Freddy Got Fingered.

Frotcast Bonus: Matt And Vince Discuss ‘Yesterday’ (TEASER)



In this week’s bonus review episode, Vince and Matt discuss ‘Yesterday,’ a movie directed by an Oscar winner (Danny Boyle) and written by an Oscar nominee (Richard Curtis) in which one Indian-British busker is the only one on Earth who remembers The Beatles. First, Matt details the shocking similarities between this premise and a premise he wrote years back as a movie within a movie that was considered the worst movie idea ever. Then we discuss how a premise this good (it’s true, I love this premise!) could turn out this bad (boy was it bad!). And then there was the agony of leaving the theater only to discover that most of our fellow theater patrons apparently loved it! We felt like the only people on Earth who remembered how terrible Yesterdaywas. Yes, this episode was a long and winding road. Vince’s written version of the review lives here.

Please to enjoy, tell you friends, and you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.


Frotcast Live Riff Episode, Limitless With Joey Devine And Alison Stevenson (TEASER)



For this month’s bonus live riff, the FilmDrunk Frotcast has selected Limitless, the original (lol, kinda?) “what if hunnert percent brain?” classic from 2011. It’s a film that plays like the screenwriter took a bunch of Adderall and wrote a film about SUPER Adderall that gives you superpowers. What if Bradley Cooper took Adderall? Would he court Lady Gaga even more meticulously? Turns out he mostly just gets a haircut and puts on a new suit, transforming himself from David Foster Wallace into Bradley Cooper, handsome movie star.

Joining us on this adventure are Joey Devine from the Roundball Rock podcast and Alison Stevenson of V Single. This is just a teaser, but you can get the entire episode by subscribing to our Patreon at the $20 level. That way you can hear our entire live riff of Limitless PLUS Matt telling the full story of finding out an ex was cheating on him from hearing her on a podcast. What a fun episode! Totally worth your donation! You’ll also get to hear all of our movie review podcasts. You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

 


Frotcast 412: Euphoria with Allison Mick



What’s up Frot fam! Matt Lieb here and holy hell do we have some amazing #content for you to #engage with this week. San Francisco comedian Allison Mick has moved to Los Angeles and there’s no better welcoming party than visiting the LA Frotquarters to rip hollywood fail-children Max Landis and Sam Levinson. This week we discuss HBO’s zoomer porn Euphoria, Max Landis’s most recent rape allegations, and Matt’s trip to New York – where dozens of Frotcast fans showed up to a slew of bar shows to show their support for our aging brand. We also read some e-mails and listen to some voicemails from Frot listeners who are inexplicably still Frotting with us after all these years. It’s a beautiful episode and you should listen to it.

Sam Jackson in Shaft

Frotcast Bonus: Vince and Joe Talk Shaft (TEASER)



Happy Father’s Day, Frot fans. This week, I took Joe Sinclitico to see a movie about three generations of men named “Shaft.” Luckily Samuel L. Jackson was one of them. The big question with Shaft: is Samuel L. Jackson enough of a national treasure that it’s worth sitting through an otherwise kind of weak Shaft movie? The answer is…. yes? Please enjoy this bonus movie review Frotcast. We should have a new Frotcast out soon, but in the meantime, you can find lots of bonus movie review Frotcasts available right now by subscribing at patreon.com/Frotcast.


Frotcast 411: It Puts The Dramamine In The Basket, With Kaseem Bentley, Aviva Siegel, And Jon Schabl



This week, The Last Black Man In San Francisco hits theaters, and while we don’t have anyone from that movie, we have Kaseem Bentley — “the last black man in San Francisco” was his brand for years! Kaseem has an album out, Lakeview, and we kick off the show with him roasting the Frotcast. We also have two brand new guests in the studio, comedians Aviva Siegel and Jon Schabl, who if I’m not mistake is our first live Canadian.

We break down the press conference of the Arizona helicopter pilots apologizing for spinning that lady around real fast (this week’s best viral video) and discuss the guy who got pissed about not getting invited to a Star Wars thing (as I’ve said, living in LA is 85% wondering why you didn’t get invited to a thing). We even squeeze in some time for your emails, a Royalty Freestyle, and some classic texts from Bret. Please to enjoy, you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.
