GTGC - #190 - Transformers

August 29th, 2016

Its more than meets the eye this week Dear Listener, as the Randomizer AB1700 decided to cruelly inflict us with Michael Bay’s Transformers. After nearly four years and finally leaving it to chance, it happened. Much to our chagrin. Except Caleb, he tries to defend it—it’s a valiant effort. That’s right, the movie that we’ve dogged for nigh on four years has finally fallen onto our table. Does it stand a chance, or is it a dead bot walking?

This week we create a controversial conversation as we talk about our Top Three Properties We Don’t Understand the Love For. That’s right, and I promise all of your favorites are called out here. Yep, even that one. You know, the one that you really love? Yeah, we don’t understand it. So take to your social media and please tell us why we’re wrong.

We then get down to business to dissect this film. Dustin has prepared a series of questions regarding the film having its cake and eating it too. He presents to the panel questions about jingoism, diversity and feminism. He presents the idea that the film looks to be progressive in these areas, but beneath the hood (BOOOOO!) he questions if the film is really true to those ideals.

Dear Listener, it’s a challenge this week. But you give us the fuel we need to get through another show. So please, tune in and then take to your social media of choice and let us know what we got right and what we got wrong. And while you’re listening to us, head over to Loot Crate and take a look at September 2016’s box. The theme is SPEED and features items from DC Comics, Gone in 60 Seconds, Battlestar Galactica, Iron Man 2 and more! And if you use promo code GOODTRASH at checkout, you’ll receive $3 off your first box.

GTGC - #189 - Fast Five

August 22nd, 2016

Welcome back dear listener! This week we get fast and we get furious as we take a look at Justin Lin’s Fast Five. It is mostly received with great joy, but Dustin has no heart. This episode has a bunch of absurd dialogue and some crazy set pieces. Sorry you can’t see Dalton’s death-defying stunts on this one. He don’t need no stuntman.

Things kick off this week as the game has us revisiting Film Franchise MVPs. The hosts highlight franchise entries that are surprisingly fun or good. We then move into analysis with Caleb’s look at how the Fast Franchise has opened up a multi-ethnic blockbuster franchise. Dalton counters that as he highlights the colonial Americans invading Rio and destroying their country.Dustin takes the conversation home with a discussion of montage and Sergei Eisenstein and what attracts us to these big blockbusters.

Alright, gas up dear listeners. We’ve got a long ways to go and a short time to get there. Time for you to buckle up and hit play.

GTGC - #188 - Bewitched (2005)

August 15th, 2016

We hope your noses are twitching, because we’re back with Alexandra Bohannon’s host pick, the 2005 rom-com, Bewitched. A divided table sounds off to tackle this trip down nostalgia lane. Trust us, it is a divided table.

We try to get the game started as we talk classic TV shows that should be made into movies. Dalton doesn’t want to play. After some magic,we get to work on analysis. Alex brings the heat as she talks about the films conversation with The Patriarchy. Dalton has a rebirth after hearing the analysis. Dustin then presents some psychoanalysis and Jacques Lacan. He highlights the emphasis of the Nomme de Pere, or the name of the father. These analyses kick off a roundtable.Caleb looks at Hollywood’s fixation on nostalgia.

Alright dear listener, get your brooms ready. We’ve got our cauldrons with us and we’re about to cast some magic.Go ahead, tune in, and give in to our spell.

Wicked Love Interview with Conor Allyn and Adrian Peng Correia

August 10th, 2016

Oklahoma may not be the first place that comes to mind when talking about Hollywood productions, but more recently, there's been a change in the Okie air with the most recent run of Hollywood productions including Hellraiser Judgement, the most recent rendition of Children of the Corn, and now a high school drama titled Wicked LoveWicked Love isn't just a high school drama, but is also serves as an adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies, MacBeth

The film is set and shot in Oklahoma and takes place from perspective of Lady MacBeth's analogue in the story Missy as she's swept off her feet by one of the town's star football players, Mac. It ditches the Shakespearian dialog in favor of a more Oklahoman high schooler vernacular in a the similar vein as 10 Things I Hate About You's adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew. 

Dustin and Caleb had the opportunity to sit down with the film's writer/director Conor Allyn and Director of Photography Adrian Peng Correia to learn more about the project, the benefits of filming in Oklahoma, and what it takes to get a crack at pursuing a career as a filmmaker. 

GTGC - #187 - Road House

August 8th, 2016

Producer's Note: This cast of Road House is very enjoyable, however there was a technical glitch. It sounds much like we traversed to a cave to record. So, Arthur apologizes for the drastic shift is sound quality, but we'll be back to normal operation next week. 

Welcome back everyone! This week we've packed away our German-made vehicles and have opted for some American motor machines. Dalton Stuart is very excited as we finally look at the movie featuring the character that he was named after, Patrick Swayze's Dalton. We have some division at the table this week. We have three hosts from small towns each of who bring something different to their experience with Road House.

This week we kick things off with our our recasting of Road House in honor of the upcoming remake that's coming down the pipe. Arthur is pretty confident he has the contest one, but Caleb swoops in with some otherworldly help. This mostly serves to agitate Dalton. Once skulls have been busted, we move into analysis. Arthur discusses the portrayal of small town life and politics and what that looks like in the movie. Dalton takes a look at the violence of the film and how he believes it subverts the typical violence of the time. Dustin takes us home with a look at the ideology of the film and presents a little Karl Marx and Jacques Lacan. 

So there you have it dear listener. Remember, just be nice - no matter what. We'll see you next week when we tackle a host pick from Alexandra Bohannon, it'll be a magical time. Don't forget to check out our sponsor Loot Crate, at

GTGC Interview - To the New Girl: 10 Monologues For Women

August 1st, 2016

Welcome listeners to a special GoodTrash Genrecast interview with the Executive Producer of To the New Girl Hunter Drago.  To the New Girl is a project that is fully written, directed, and produced by women. The team is so passionate about showcasing women working in the entertainment industry, they've even built a crew fully staffed by ladies. To the New Girl is an adaptation of a play featuring ten monologues by women directly addressing their exes' new wives and lovers. Each of the ten stories will feature a different director, each with their own unique style and vision. 

It's a project very near to the heart of GoodTrash Media's support of women working in the industry and it needs your help to make it happen!  To The New Girl is raising money via Kickstarter until August 10 which means we've got nine days to help Hunter and the rest of the team hit their goal. 

In my talk with Hunter, we discuss the shocking  underrepresentation of women on both sides of the camera before talking more about the project's conception as a play. If you're looking for ways to further progress representation in the film industry, this project is one you won't want to pass up.

If you're interested, make sure to give our talk with Hunter a listen and checking their Kickstarter page for more information!

GTGC - #186 - Her

August 1st, 2016

Welcome back dear listeners! We are your new cure for everything you need. We are now "They". You can thank Patreon Supporter Daniel Austin for choosing Spike Jonze's 2013 sci-fi drama, Her. Because of his continued financial support of GoodTrash Media, Daniel was able to select a movie for us to do on the network. So, the GoodTrash GenreCast took up the challenge and brought Her to the table for a deeper look. 

This Patreon-sponsored episode is full of laughs, and we have a lot of fun with the game this week. We take turns pitching high-concept films about personal accessories. This leads to many silly ideas and discussions. We then dive into business with a good old fashioned round table discussion. The gang sits around to talk about personhood and A.I., the human void, love as a consumer product, and much, much more. We were very grateful to get a chance to talk about Her. Typically it wouldn't fall under our mission statement, but once and a while (and thanks to built-in cheats) we get a chance to look at the "person who wouldn't go to prom with us" as Dustin used to say. So, thank you dearly Daniel Austin. If you want more information on how you can force us to talk about your favorite movies just head over to and see all of our cool exclusive options for Patreon contributors. 

Alright Dear Listener, there you have it. Daniel Austin has presented a great movie which fostered some great, genuine discussions about humanity, life and love. So, go ahead and download, and tell us... What is your relationship like with your mother?
