Episode 30: “Jingle All The Way 2”

…is it too early to say, “Merry Christmas?” ScreenTeam, we at On This Very Screen want to apologize for the lack of updates, here. Over the holidays, we ran into some crazy server issues, bad timing with each other’s availability, and generally, just not liking Corey enough to want to do any more episodes. Thankfully, all that’s been figured out now, and we are BACK — in the holiday spirit, no less!

On this episode, the boys (joined by previous guest, Aaron Weaver) take on Jingle All The Way 2, the spiritual sequel to Marc’s favorite holiday movie to star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. In this flick, Larry the Cable Guy (yes, that one) plays a happy-go-lucky father competing with his daughter’s new stepfather over who’s going to deliver Christmas’s hottest toy, first. Holiday shenanigans are abound as the boys wax poetic about the importance of literacy, class warfare in Christmas form, and how, exactly, a WWE Studios Christmas movie has anything to do with Law & Order: SVU.

Did You Know? In the very strange (and perhaps unnecessary) mechanical reindeer competition scene, Claude (played by WWE’s Santino) lasts approximately one second — the same amount of time he lasted in a Royal Rumble. It is also the same amount of time Marc needed to realize he made a grave mistake creating this podcast.

Episode 23: “Scooby-Doo! & WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon!”

Ahoy, ScreenTeam! The boys are back this show to celebrate OTVS’s first birthday with none other than the much-awaited sequel to Scooby-Doo! & WWE: Wrestlemania Mystery — the rip-roaring, goofy as-all-hell ode to WWE Crush Hour, Scooby-Doo & WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon! When the WWE’s newest business venture (Wacky Racers, what?) is threatened  by a vengeful zombie-demon in a souped up monster truck, it’s up to the Undertaker and Mystery Inc. to solve the case and ensure Muscle Moto X doesn’t go the way of the XFL. In this episode, the boys dive headfirst into the film’s never-ending parade of red herrings, the unbelievable amount of references to the first movie, and the most bonkers iteration of the Undertaker ever before seen on screen! Think you know who the bad guy is when the mask comes off? THINK AGAIN!

Did You Know? This is the last WWE appearance of the “American Dream,” Dusty Rhodes, daddeh, and there won’t be any shitty joke, here. Rock your polka dots for this one, folks.

Episode 22: “The Marine 4: Moving Target”

On this week’s episode of On This Very Screen, the boys are joined in the studio by a very special guest, none other than “Broseph” Joe Brody, himself — the face of wrestling cult phenomenon, Hoodslam AJ Kirsch!  In the first part of the show, AJ and the guys talk about Hoodslam’s beginnings and its recent great run of press (this mini-doc from AJ+ is particularly remarkable), the inspirations behind the “Broseph” Joe Brody character, as well as his current run on Dwayne Johnson’s weekly promo-battle competition, Rock The Promo!  A can’t-miss interview from one of our favorite guests, yet!

But of course, what episode wouldn’t be complete without a review from WWE Studios? This episode, the four of them take on The Marine 4: Moving Target, a feature-length escort mission (yay!) starring Mike “The Miz” Mizanin (reprising his role as Jake Carter from The Marine 3: Homefront), Melissa Roxburgh as the VIP he’s been assigned to protect, and Total Divas’ Summer Rae as… well, a lazily-named sniper who may or may not have been ripped off from Metal Gear Solid V. Are you a fan of never-ending gunfights, whiny female “characters,” and multiple references to the Resident Evil series? This is the show for you!

Did You Know? We mention it at the end of this episode, but it cannot be ignored that the writer of this movie, Alan B. Mcelroy, has more than a few movies under his belt: the original “Marine,” “The Condemned 2,” “Tekken,” and one of the worst-reviewed movies in cinematic history — “Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.” The boys’ reactions to this news, you have to hear.

NEWS: “The Marine 5: Battleground” is a GO!

From WWE.com:

“The Miz returns as Jake Carter, an ex-Marine who served in the Middle East and is now saving civilian lives stateside as an EMT. After responding to an emergency call in an abandoned parking lot, Carter finds himself protecting an injured man from a ruthless biker gang. With the odds stacked against him, Carter utilizes his unique Marine skills to stop the bikers’ rampage before any more innocent blood is shed.”

Episode 11: “Santa’s Little Helper”

‘Tis the season, ScreenTeam, and this holiday, On This Very Screen is proud to review the WWE’s latest attack in its War on Christmas, Santa’s Little Helper! Marc and Annie find themselves opposite Paolo on this flick, but it’s a fun show, nonetheless! Assisted by the apparently hideous North Pole elf, Billie (Nip/Tuck’s AnnaLynne McCord), Dax “The Axe” Ardwick (Miz) finds himself in direct competition with another elf, Eleanor (Paige), over the position of Santa’s own, personal Hand of the King — the “Ho-Ho Ho” (seriously) . Moreover, the gang marvels at the WWE’s attempt at reverse-sexism, the issues of racism and body-shaming plaguing Santa’s workshop,  and an obstacle course set piece with all the excitement and magic of a flailing sea cow. Put down your red Starbucks cups, nerds, and get ready for a real holiday controversy.

Ho-ho-holy shit, what a polarizing movie. What’d you think, ScreenTeam? Let us know at otvs.show@gmail.comSUBSCRIBE to the gang on iTunes (and leave a rating or a review for us, if you please), LIKE us on Facebook and FOLLOW the show on Twitter for updates on everything WWE Studios.

Did You Know?  During the scene with the Miz in the retirement home, we find that the seniors are watching an episode of E!’s “Total Divas” — absolutely confirming the torture many of our senior citizens face at these privatized hell holes.

Preview: “Santa’s Little Helper”

The holidays are here, ScreenTeam, and we at On This Very Screen are celebrating with a Miz-filled Christmas as we saw WWE’s most recent release, Santa’s Little Helper! Multi-cultural elves, horny old women, and a frighteningly psychopathic Santa make up this strangely entertaining flick about dickheads during the Christmas season. You ready to be a ho-ho-ho?
