In this episode, we invite Marcus Ryan to join us right before he starts up his Edmonton Fringe Show, "Marcus Ryan - ¿Hablas Inglés?". He wanted to see a bad action film, turns out that's precisely what we gave him... but not the way he was had hoped.
On this week's episode we get the pleasure of welcoming in Dana Andersen to the podcast. He brought to us, John Frankenheimer's "The Train", 1964's suspense/action classic starring Burt Lancaster. We get a great film to watch and wouldn't you know it... Gramiak is off doing something else. Luckily Dallas Friesen was able to take a bullet and... watch a great film.
For our 300th episode we invited back David Rae in hopes to mend some broken bridges. In the last couple of episodes that David has joined us, he has watched some films that didn't exactly sit well with him. So we invited him back to watch a Film Festival Film. All the movies in this Mystery Movie Challenge have been official selections from respectable film festivals from around the world. How could this possibly go wrong for David?
Matt Alden has returned along side with Alice Kelly, in hope of watching a film with an alien in it. Did he succeed? Well let's just say there was at least an alien in the title.
After seeing "Upgrade" we noticed that a lot of science fiction films feel the need to show body upgrades and modifications. So we bring back Kevin Alexander to explore films with biological upgrades.
To celebrate our beloved country, we brought on our favorite Canadian, Liam Leroux. Liam has unconsciously been one of the biggest fans of Canadian film, so instead of our usual 20 mystery movies we laid out 20 cases with two films each. Liam picks the case then Gramiak picks one of the two films to watch. The results redefine us as The Movie Jerks.
This episode we take a look at body horror films with Paul Matwychuk (Trash, Art, & the Movies). What we watch is so bizarre that it has to be seen to believe... or just listen to us watch it and discuss can do the trick too.

We take our second chance at finding a film that will make Shawn Gramiak cry. Mr. Sensitive himself, Nathan Semenyna has returned to take the challenge too. This time the film tackles one of our darkest moments in history. Will a realistic look at one of our most inhuman acts be enough to make these two shed a tear?
