Saddle Up Episode #12: I’ll Make You Famous

May 21, 2019

Hey y'all, we are back....well, I'm back.   Pat has the night off and Gene is off to greener pastures, something about leaving our rowdy ways and becoming Sheriff or something.  Hope that doesn't come back to bite us.....speaking of, this week we discuss the movies that made Billy the Kid synonymous with Emilio Estevez, Young Guns and Young Guns II.

 

No Gene, no Pat? No worries, I gots me a new crew, Brushy Bill Brian and Nez y Nez sit down with me to talk about our love (or hate, I don't give spoilers) for these late 80's movies that made westerns fun again.  

 

Why do we like the peyote scene so much?  Who am I talking about when I try to pronounce Kazi-Mish-kimashko?  Where the hell is Tom Cruise?   Who doesn't know the song Regulate?....you'll be surprised.  Well..y'all listen while we skin out of here.   REGULATORS!..Saddle Up!

Saddle UP Episode # 11: Wounded Knee

May 10, 2019

Hey y'all, we are back after a small delay, spent time with the Horror Returns guys and gals this weekend at Texas Frightmare and had a great time.

This week we bring a special episode with a special guest, Samantha Bean.   We discuss a delicate issue regarding the treatment of Native Americans with two events that crosses nearly a hundred year span.   We take a look at the film Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and the much unknown event that happened in 1973 near the same site with the American Experience documentary segment, Wounded Knee.    Samantha does an excellent job discussing and educating Gene, Pat and myself.  

We hope you enjoy the discussion, learn some things and get encouraged you to learn more.

April 29, 2019

Not only do we have an interview with Joe Lansdale (a writer from Hap and Leonard, Bubba Ho-Tep, the new Creepshow, and Love, Death, and Robots) stuffed in the middle of this show, but we brought our own Avengers to battle.  Our main man, Cactus Jay shows up from Saddle Up, and from Binge Media, we've got Johnny Moreno (secret identity: Alyx Ancira).  We talk about what shows are leaving Netflix and whether Hulu is worth it.  And of course, we geek out over Avengers Endgame with spoilers starting at about 1 hour 30.  Our Avengers may not be able to take out Thanos...or maybe even a gang of aggressive 8th graders, but we stand in the face of adversity no matter what the odds.  Avengers, Assemble!

Saddle Up Episode # 10: Blazing Saddles Commentary

April 23, 2019

Hey y'all, been awhile but we are back and this time Gene and Pat, our newly appointed sheriff or is it town drunk?   Either way Patrick Lear joins us permanently to bring our team to a trio (that means 3, Phil).  

This week we watch, talk, laugh, cry, pee, and fart around the campfire as we bring you a commentary to the Mel Brook's classic Blazing Saddles.   A movie that crosses every line including racial satire to different sound stages....wait what?

Does this movie still hold up after 45 years?   Is punching out a horse still cool?  Are we all enamored with the silver tongue of Hedy (that's Hedly!) Lamar?    Well, excuse me while I whip this out and present the very funny and politicly incorrect masterpiece...enjoy
