227 – Galaxy Quest vs The Orville

Space. The final Frontier. To boldy go where no podcast has gone before. This week, it’s not ‘Star Trek’, but it might just be better.

The ’40 Going On 14′ crew of red shirts are getting on board with ‘Galaxy Quest’ and Seth MacFarlane’s ‘The Orville’. Despite what you think, it’s not going to all be fart jokes. Well, I won’t make any promises.

Warm up the warp drives, because “By Grabthar’s hammer, by the suns of Warvan, you shall be avenged!”

225 – Flatliners

We’re all going to die in this episode…. but we’ll come back! Perhaps with some bad things we’d sooner forget.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, this week we’re going to stop your hearts with our ‘Flatliners’ show! Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon vs Ellen Page, Diego Luna and Kiefer Sutherland! This is a big one, kids.

9 out of 10 doctors agree, you should take two film versions of ‘Flatliners’ and call them in the morning.

224 – Blade Runners

Have you ever wondered if the person next to you is a replicant? Have you ever asked them a series of questions, in the hopes of figuring it out? If either of those things are true, then you should really listen to this weeks show.

We’re traveling into the future as we dig deep into the genre defining ‘Blade Runner’ and it’s recently released follow up ‘Blade Runner 2049.

Rick Deckard is here and looking as grizzled as ever. It’s time to hop onto your unicorn and grab your origami paper, because Roy Batty is on the loose!

220 – Christmas Stories

Whenever the Christmas holidays roll around, one film almost always comes to mind. One that reminds us about the gift of giving, the joy of being a kid on Christmas morning and pleasures of winning a major award.

That’s right, the merry gentlemen of ’40 Going On 14′ are heading to Indiana again, but this time it’s to talk about ‘A Christmas Story’! However, we’re also going to talk about its second cousin, twice removed, ‘A Christmas Story 2’.

It you’re looking for some Daniel Stern, to add to your holiday cheer, we’ve got it. Turn off ‘Little Orphan Annie’ and tune into us, because Christmas only comes once a year!

219 – Julianne Moore

When trying to think of a modern day actress that’s had a career that’s spanned genres and who’s mastered them all, one name in particular comes to mind: Julianne Moore.

This week, ’40 Going On 14′ is celebrating her entire catalog! She’s worked with just about everyone in the business and established herself as a talent you can count on. We felt it was time to give her the spotlight for an episode.

If you’re a fan already or even if you’re not, this is the show for you. Why do I say that? Because we all need a little Moore in our lives.

218 – The Saints

What do Val Kilmer, Roger Moore and Adam Rayner have in common? They’ve all played Simon Templar aka ‘The Saint’! On this week’s very special episode, we’re going to focus on the 1997 feature film and the 2017 made for TV movie.

Do you like to steal from the rich and give to the poor? Maybe you like to put on wacky disguises, in order to foil your enemies? If either of those are true, then you’ll want to download this one!

Pop in those ear buds and load this new episode of ’40 Going On 14′. All hail ‘The Saint’!

217 – Movie Soundtracks

What makes a movie better? Popcorn? 3D, Sexy Michael Caine? Perhaps it’s the soundtrack? That’s right, this week, we’re talking about the foundation of any good film.

Each of the guys has picked 2 of their favorite soundtracks and we’re going to dismantle them one by one. Which cuts make the cut? You’ll have to listen to find out!

It’s movie music mania on this week’s ’40 going On 14′!

215 – Western Comedies

What do you get when you cross a western with a comedy? A Womedy? A Cestern? Nope. You get this weeks show!

We thought about what movie could compare to the classic Blazing Saddles and it really wasn’t that much of a challenge. Who could match up to the off-the-wall style of Mel Brooks? Seth MacFarlane, that’s who!

The boys from ’40 Going On 14′ and having a showdown between ‘Blazing Saddles’ and ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’. They’re coming out guns drawn and you’ll have to listen, to see who’s left standing. From the infamous “campfire scene” to the Easter eggs that Seth MacFarlane has hidden through his movie, we look at the irreverent and often times gross out humor of two comedy legends!

It’s westward ho, as it’s almost high noon! Giddy up!

201 – New Who

Grab K-9 and let’s go! Would you like a Jelly Baby?

195 – Pete’s Dragons

When we were kids, we all wanted a pet dragon. If not a pet dragon, then some kind of magical friend that would stay by our side and keep us safe. Disney fulfilled that wish, with the original ‘Pete’s Dragon’. In 2016, they remade it, but for a more modern generation of kids.

On our newest episode, we’re going to hop on the back of the world’s most famous big, green dragon. We’re also going to learn about Robert Redford and his love of horses.

What more can you ask for?

194 – The Hannibal Show

What do you pair human liver with? That’s one of the many topics will discuss this week, as we sink our teeth into ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and the more recent ‘Hannibal’ television series.

From Thomas Harris’ mind was born one of the most iconic characters of our time. Hannibal Lector leaps from the pages of his various books and took on a life of his own. As the years go on, he seems to be only growing in popularity.

The gang at ’40 Going On 14′ have set the table for dinner and it’s time to say grace. Let’s eat!

Joe Dante started it all and Alexandre Aja picked up the torch and ran with it. How dangerous can tiny little fish be? You’ll have to listen in to find out!

It’s the ‘Piranha’ show!

189 – MST3K

Did you ever want to talk during a movie, but got told to be quiet? On this week’s episode, we’re letting a few select individuals do it for an entire movie!

That’s right, it’s the ‘MST3K’ show! We’re spending and evening with Mike, Joel, Tom Servo, Crow, Jonah and the rest of the gang, as we talk about talking during a terrible movie. The ONLY time it’s appropriate.

He’s especially good at…. pontificating!
Let’s talk about, Gaston!”

183 – Beauty & The Beast TV

It’s a scary world we live in. It’s even scarier when you’re nearly killed due to mistaken identity! Luckily, there are other monsters out lurking, that will rescue you and quietly stalk you to ensure that you’re okay at night.

What am I talking about?

Why ‘Beauty and the Beast’, of course! This week, it’s all about Catherine and Vincent. A love story for the ages…. with occasional action sequences.

Now, what was that about NASCAR?

177 – Wayne’s World vs Pick of Destiny

165 – Schwarzenegger – Part 1: The Then

The 70’s, 80’s and 90’s were an interesting time in entertainment. Amongst all of the giant hair, off putting clothing and low-def TV…. a star was on the rise. A muscle bound Austrian named, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This show has been years in the making and not unlike the man himself, it’s larger than life. We’re dedicating 2 full episodes to celebrate the entire catalog of the 7 time Mr. Olympia. In this first episode, we’re digging into the past and covering Arnold’s early career. From ‘Hercules in New York’ to ‘End of Days’, we’re leaving no stone unturned.

Be sure to join us next week, for part 2. There’s so many more explosions to witness and bullets to dodge, as ’40 Going On 14′ will be back and wondering: “Have you seen this boy?”
