Mark, Rick and Brian kick off their first "reviewsit" of 2017 with the Corey Haim/ Corey Feldman coming-of-age comedy License to Drive. The gents identify influences from contemporary films like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Better Off Dead on the movie, ponder if the use of insurance claims would have voided out the film's plot and share a story of the time their friend broke Heather Graham's toilet. The fellas also coin the term "BM" aka "Before Mark" for a timeline reference, Rick shares insight into diaper etiquette and they become enraged over one particular Saved By the Bell character.

Rick and Brian also send along their personalized good wishes to the cinemaniacs, movies they hope to cover for "reviewsits" this year and films coming to the theater that they are excited to see. It was a great year and these three "Silver Screen Stooges" are ready for more fun times to come! Here's to the movies in 2017!!
With the holiday season upon us, Mark and Brian wish the cinemaniacs season's greetings while sharing some final thoughts on Jingle All The Way.

Toy Corner" and Mark perhaps makes his best segue ever (it's a Xmas miracle)! You can come along a-wassailing with these 'Merry Makers' @5DollarBinPOD and here's to the movies in 2017! Happy Holidays!!!
Mark, Rick and Brian have a "reviewsit" of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas romp Jingle All The Way, while comparing the vastly different methods in which they viewed the film. The gents recognize the similarities between the movie's opening sequence to that of Hook, share that the plot was based upon the Cabbage Patch Doll frenzy of the '80s and go off on a toy tangent of their own, including a discussion of the current "hot toy" for today's holiday shopping season. The fellas also ponder what the name of the trilogy of Arnold/Danny DeVito films would have been called had they made a 3rd movie together, cast The Guvernator in one of the roles for a Gilligan's Island reboot and take a stab at what the current cost of a movie tie-in Turbo Doll goes for nowadays. Oh, and if you thought this episode would go without way too many Arnold impressions, you'd be sooo wrong!
While still stuffed on leftovers, Mark and Rick share some final thoughts on Kingpin while Brian likewise joins in to chat about their Thanksgiving meal experiences from the recent holiday. The fellas run through a list of the greatest bowling scenes in film, discuss the many movies they caught over the Turkey Day break and play a version of the 'Online Review Game' all about Woody.

The lads point out the early framework of road trips, reoccurring weirdos and unique soundtracks that would soon become the Farrelly Brothers signature style, identify differences in the 2 versions of the film and everyone expresses the early crushes they had on Vanessa Angel. The gents also count the number of montages throughout the movie, learn about Rick's "Fast Forward Viewing Method" he applies to his film watching and explain what candlepin bowling is to all the non-New England cinemaniacs. This episode is so special Mark even unlocks a 'beer achievement!' Make sure you don't pull a Munson and roll a gutter ball on this episode!
With Halloween still in the air, Mark and Rick share some final thoughts on Ernest Scared Stupid while Brian weighs in on the film as well after being back this week. The gents share the alternative titles proposed for the movie, learn that there were actually Five and not Four Ernest films theatrically released and run through the cinematic clips found in the Scared Stupid opening credits. The lads also debate over a list of films considered top "horror comedies" of all time, play a spooky version of the 'Online Review Game' and discover that Brian is afraid of offending any fictional character that breaks the fourth wall. The fellas are quite 'earnest' when they say tweet them @5DollarBinPOD and you'll get a scary, yet comical reply back from either Mark, Rick, Brian, Chuck, Bobby, Tom or Bobby!

Worrell should be diagnosed with split personality disorder, run through his "characters" that appear throughout the film and give the found definition of the drink MIAK.

Join 'Troll Talker 1 & 2' as they grab some fictional beverages and jump-scare once again into the world of Ernest!
