UNLOCKED – Frotcast 452: ‘Cuties,’ AKA Q-Ties



Frot-fans! We have a brand new Frotcast for the Patrons at Patreon.com/Frotcast. We’d love it if you became a Patron and listened to our newest one! But all piggies are loved in their own special way, so we’re also unlocking Frotcast 452 from a few months ago. Enjoy!

Hey everyone, long time no Frot! Sorry about the delay, we are full steam ahead with season 3 of Pod Yourself A Gun so the frot had to take a slight back seat. But we just had to give our patreon piggies something to nosh on and figured we should watch the movie that literally everyone is talking about. That’s right, we watch the controversial French film Cuties from director Maïmouna Doucouré. Cuties a coming-of-age art house flick that Netflix decided to promote as if it were Bring It On for pretweens. Depending on who you ask, it’s either a movie about French/Senegalese 11 year old girls who form a dance troop and discover their sexuality, or it’s about making pedos horny. The right wing has decided this movie is softcore porn and simultaneously urging people to see it. Weird time to be alive.
Vince and Matt talk Cuties as well as the new JK Rowling book about a serial killer posing as a transgender to kill women, plus Vince reads the best Mormon names from BYU’s 2020 roster. It’s a great episode. Enjoy and eat the beans.

UNLOCKED: Frotcast 454: Toobin On Sorkin In ‘Trial Of The Chicago 7’



Hey all, this episode is from our Patreon bonus episodes but we feel like you piggies needed a free one. Here it is:

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 (you’re free until next week, Rudy Giuliani). We discuss Sacha Baron Cohen’s bonkers  Boston 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, and best of all, NO WOMEN. 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 no, the internet had to quickly separate into warring camps of which teachable moment this incident best represented. We were going to debate that one in earnest, but you remember the Frotcast rule: no hugging, no learning. Only lumming. Finally, it’s an episode worth paying a premium for. No refunds.

 


(Teaser) Frotcast 432: The Plague Curer, With Justin Halpern



We love you, Frotcast family, and thanks for all the support. This week’s episode will be available to our $5 patrons, which you can become at Patreon.com/Frotcast. Admit it, you don’t want to miss a Justin Halpern episode.

Hey family, this week Matt and Vince welcome Justin Halpern (Shit My Dad Says, DC Universe’s Harley Quinn) back to the virtual frotquarters to catch up on life under quarantine. Justin presents his theory about a genre of film he has deemed “You Know What Would Be Fuckin Sick, Bro?” movies. These include the entire Fast & Furious franchise and pretty much any Michael Bay movie. They also discuss the black death and Europe’s very misguided attempts to end the plague through pogroms. Enjoy!


Frotcast 406: Triple Frot-tier, With Joey Devine And Zach Johnston



Hi Frot family!

It’s that time of the week again where Vince and I regale you with our wit and charm regarding everything from film to anatomy. That’s right, it’s time for you weekly dose of potent, high octane, 99% pure, uncut Frottage. This week, we have Joey Devine of the NBA podcast Roundball Rock gracing the frotquarters as well as UPROXX’s own Zach Johnston. We discuss a wide array of topics, starting with Shane Dawson’s vehement denial that he had sex with his cat, to the recent This American Life in which Jon Ronson gets the skinny on the true origin story of Alex Jones, who told everyone in high school that he was the devil. Then we discuss the thing that literally everyone comes to the Frotcast to listen to… movies. Specifically, we talk the new Netflix film Triple Frontier starring Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac. And finally, Matt Lieb (me) bring back Royalty Freestyle. Not that it ever left, but Vince and I have sworn to get back into the swing of doing it every episode. You do not wanna miss this one. You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

Frotcast 403: Velvet Buzzsaw, With Shereen And Anna From Ethnically Ambiguous



Happy Valentines Day to all you happily coupled lovers out there. And for the rest of you, it’s time for your weekly fix of the Filmdrunk Frotcast for you frenzied forever-alone fanatics to foam from the face over. DID YOU SEE THAT ALLITERATION?!?! Sean Penn would be proud. This week Matt and Vince welcome Shereen Lani Younes and Anna Hossnieh from the podcast Ethnically Ambiguous. Shereen and Anna join the Frotsmen to talk Velvet Buzzsaw, Dan Gilroy’s newest film in the creepy-Gyllenhaal genre about an evil artist spirit that terrorizes the art world. We also talk Sean Penn’s grating writing style, the Oscars, Vince’s hatred of art, Vince’s preposterous love for the second season of True Detective, and how Anna’s father wore Raiders gear to a funeral in Iran. It’s an excellent episode that’s equally eccentric, esoteric, and… enfinitly eccessible? Everyone should endeavor to enjoy this entertaining experience. Alliteration rules. Enjoy!
