Tim Burton’s Big Retrospective: Wednesday (2022) with Scott Mendelson

Putting the finishing touches on our Tim Burton retrospective, Scott and I discuss (with spoilers) the smash hit Netflix show Wednesday. Burton directed the first 4 episodes and was an involved producer on the final four. It’s an interesting conversation that covers the Burton aspect, but also shines on the streaming discussion, IPs and Jenna […]

A Muppet Family Christmas (1987) with Pres Maxson

I enjoy doing a special holiday episode to surrender to the season. This year’s episode was actually foreshadowed during the Almost Heroes episode back in February. So, as promised – Here is Pres and here are the Muppets! This special aired in 1987, but due to it having a crossover with the Fraggles, Sesame Street […]

Tim Burton’s Big Retrospective: Part Seven with Scott Mendelson

And here we are, the conclusion to the retrospective portion of the Tim Burton coverage. We discuss 3, rather enjoyable films that probably weren’t seen, seen enough or fully appreciated. Scott and I end things with some reflection, our favorites, not so favorite and overlooked ones here before we head into our Wednesday discussion next […]

Tim Burton’s Big Retrospective: Part Five with Scott Mendelson

Tim Burton’s Big Retrospective: Part Four with Scott Mendelson

Here we are, our first episode with some ups and downs. It also includes 2 of the biggest highs and a film Brandon calls “Ultimate Burton”. One of the misses is a fascinating one and the other just doesn’t get any better the more you return to it. Another great discussion with Scott and I. […]

Tim Burton’s Big Retrospective: Part Three with Scott Mendelson

If there’s one thing you know about Scott and I, it’s that we will forever be grateful for and also talk the hell out of Tim Burton and his Batman movies. This episode features a lot of reprises of past recorded conversations, some old jokes and maybe a few new surprises. But, hell…it could be […]

Tim Burton’s Big Retrospective: Part Two with Scott Mendelson

TBPS EP075: Out There Halloween Mega Tape (2022) with Troy Brownfield

And here we are. Something I never knew was in the works or “out there” until just a fews weeks or months ago. A sequel to my beloved WNUF Halloween Special. This second addition to the television nostalgia found footage flick of 2013 jumps ahead to the 1990s and parodies the likes of Ricki Lake […]

WNUF Halloween Special (2013) with Jessica Alsman

If you’ve been following my podcasting adventures, you’ll know I’ve done this movie before as an episode of my previous podcast. Well, in order to get your ready for next week when I discuss the brand new sequel, I thought it would be best to refresh on WNUF Halloween Special and introduce Jessica and you […]

EP073: Practical Magic (1998) with Greg McGoon

I dig a good left turn on the show. Sure, Practical Magic isn’t a horror film in October, but its story of witches and has a VERY fall feeling. Plus it’s a pretty legitimate cult classic and you know I’m always down for those. Greg leads the charge here as he dives very deeply into […]

The House Of The Devil (2009) with Jamie Alvey

Well, it’s been quite some time since we’ve had a normal, straightforward episode of the show. A combination of things happened here. I wanted a little break after working hard on The Summer of 82 at 40 series, I had a vacation the first week of September and then I caught Covid pretty bad from […]

The Summer of ‘82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: BONUS EPISODE

It wasn’t over after all! The bonus episode teased and offered throughout the series has come to fruition. We just could end on the lame duck movies we wrapped the summer with last week. So enjoy Scott and I discussing Porky’s The Sword and the Sorcerer and Diner to put the cap on the series […]

August 27-29, 1982: This is it! The grand finale! And unfortunately…we end just as we began – with three crappy flicks.

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: August 20-22, 1982

Old Space Show – Planet of the Apes “The Cure” with Russell McGee

About The Episode Sondra Locke is maybe the most major guest star we’ve seen in the series. We’ve also hit the fourth episode of a production block of 4 for Russell and I which is a bit loopy and includes a classic story of mine a personal aside. Russell McGee from the Big Finish Productions […]

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: June 25-27, 1982

June 25-27, 1982: One of the biggest weekends for film geek and genre culture arrives this week.

We have BLADE RUNNER, JOHN CARPENTER’S THE THING, cult classic MEGAFORCE and the always funny Monty Python in […]

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: June 18-20, 1982

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: June 11-13, 1982

June 11-13, 1982: We arrive at the summer’s highest profile success story as well as its highest profile bomb.

What’s Up, Doc? (1972) at 50 with Jonathan Graves

Another seminal film in the history of the medium turned 50 years old this year as well and isn’t really getting the recognition some others are. Peter Bogdanovich’s What’s Up, Doc? starring Babra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal was the 3rd highest grossing film of 1972. It trailed only The Godfather and The Poseidon Adventure in […]

Cabaret (1972) at 50 with Greg McGoon

Cabaret holds the distinction of taking home the most Academy Awards at a ceremony and not winning Best Picture. It won 8, including major categories like Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography but lost out to The Godfather on the grand prize. Seeing as that film is also turning 50, loads of […]

The Transformers: The Movie (1986) with Mike Vanderbilt

Both Mike Vanderbilt’s return and The Transformers: The Movie has been in the works for a LONG time over here on the show. We are busy guys and one thing leads to another. All of a sudden almost 7 months have passed since you were trying to set it up. Well, it’s finally here and […]

The Star Wars Special Edition Trilogy Turns 25 with Aaron Neuwirth

Probably not being roundly celebrated this year is the 25th birthday of The Star Wars Trilogy: Special Edition. This event celebrating the original Star Wars at 20 was a pretty big deal. Beyond the updated special effects, unseen footage and other tinkering, it was the first time many of us were able to actually see […]

Let’s Scare Jessica To Death (1971) with Jamie Alvey

We are sticking around in the 1970s for a second week in a row here on the show. We are talking about an underseen cult classic horror film, Let’s Scare Jessica To Death. A very stealth vampire film, this one is super moody and a complete feel through its ambiguous narrative. Regular guest Jamie Alvey […]

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) with Yancy Berns

And I’m back in regular form this week! At least for the time being. Life has been a bit time consuming and exhausting in recent weeks, but I’m doing my best to deliver when I can. I’m happy to have Yancy Berns finally make his debut proper on the show. If you listen to the […]

This Is Spinal Tap with Steven Schapansky

Being a podcaster, people wonder what I myself listen to in the podcast realm. It’s not much honestly, but one program I never miss an episode of is Radio Free Skaro. Of course that’s no surprise with my Doctor Who fandom, but the show keeps me coming back because of its production value, level headedness […]

2021 Blu-ray Holiday Gift Guide with Geoff Arbuckle

With the great response from this episode last year, plus my passion for collecting Blu-rays, I am doing another Gift Guide episode for Blu-rays.

Sorcerer (1977)

As we land on Sorcerer, we hit a film that is huge to me. This was one of those old films that was “new to me” in 2014. And boy, was I friggin impressed. This film really struck me and I’ve been sort of obsessed with it since. I cannot get enough of Sorcerer. And […]

Sound Of My Voice (2011) with Jamie Alvey

Sound of My Voice was a film that struck me, stuck with me and I continue to think about to this day. A little film that has big ideas and so much to say. These are the types of science fiction movies that impress me so much and the kind I dig and dig and […]

Bucktown (1975) with Audery Lane

Audery Lane is back! She’s always game and ready upon receiving the call to come and guest on the show. I’m lucky to have someone with such talent and great analysis that is excited to be on the show! For this episode, I’m bringing a completely forgotten flick to the table: BUCKTOWN. I didn’t know […]

Blood and Black Lace (1964) with Greg McGoon

Well, we’ve done it! We have completed 1 year of the show and now are moving into YEAR TWO! To mark this occasion, I’m flipping what I did during the first year on its head. For the past year, it has been guests bringing films that are unique favorites to the table and discussing them. […]

16 Blocks (2006) with Scott Mendelson

We’ve reached the 1 year milestone here on The Brandon Peters Show. Fitting enough, I’ve chosen to bring back the original guest, Forbes’ Scott Mendelson, to cap it all off! Has the show evolved or changed a lot since the first episode dropped? I’m sure it has, but you tell me. Scott and I are […]

The Heights “Talk To An Angel” SPECIAL EDITION with Jessica Alsman

As fate would have it, right after Jessica and I recorded our finale for Old Teen Show: The Heights, the first episode was uncovered. We were pretty enthused to not only record again so quickly, but to actually get to see where it all started out. We decided to make a week of it all. […]

Meet The Robinsons (2007) with Sabina Graves

One of my favorite parts about this show, and having my guests drive the movie choices, is the bounce from week to week. What other movie podcast goes from Friday the 13th to Disney family cartoon one week to the next? This one, that’s what the hell one does. Sabina Graves returns for her third […]

Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan with James Oster

During the World Film Project series, we passed by a Friday the 13th! No, I didn’t forget. I didn’t want to interrupt, quickly end or overshadow that run of episodes. And as Jimmy O and I always say…you don’t just have to wait until Friday the 13th to watch, talk about or record episodes of […]

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) with Sharareh Drury

Big caveat here on this week’s third and final entry into this first session of World Film Project.

The Rider (2017) with Chelsea Christer

In my journeys on this podcast, I’ve been sharing time with friends old and new and meeting fresh faces along the way.

[…]

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (2003) with Greg McGoon

Closing With A Song “Slippin'” by DMX with Sharai Bohannon

Closing with a Song Slippin Sharai Bohannon

Since I schedule, plan far ahead and also try and find appropriate material that my guests are familiar or comfortable with talking about when it comes to these music video episodes, I haven’t been able to touch on the late, great DMX since his passing. In my late teens, early 20s, I was quite a […]

The monthly commentary series for Out Now with Aaron & Abe concludes its journey through the cinematic adaptations of the Thomas Harris novels surrounding Hannibal Lecter.

The Meteor Man (2003) with Sharai Bohannon

The Meteor Man (2003) with Sharai Bohannon

I found my guest, Sharai Bohannon, very recently through a toxic scenario she exposed over the Twitter universe. While that was the reason I found her to connect, she’s a person who has SO MUCH to offer. Even beyond her very fun horror podcast, A Nightmare On Fierce Street. Sharai has lots of talents and […]

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) with Scott Mendelson

Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle Of Life with Scott Mendelson

My original guest for the show, Forbes writer Scott Mendelson returns for the first time proper (AKA not a commentary track). And while not a “favorite” film per se, the second Angelina Tomb Raider adventure has had a significant resonance in his lingo if you’re a follower of his box office reporting. Scott coined the […]

Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) with Stephanie Crawford

The great Stephanie Crawford returns! Her first time on the show proper. If you remember, she was on the Holiday Gift Guide episode before. And don’t worry, we know you loved us discussing Blu-rays.

Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls (1970) with Reyna Cervantes

Did you know that film critic icon Robert Ebert once wrote a film? And that it’s one of the most highly regarded, wild and crazy, Russ Meyer cult films? Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is his satirical masterpiece he provided to the world of film. And it is quite a crazy midnight movie kind […]

Moxie (2021) with David Kronmiller

The Losers (2010) with KJ

Shin Godzilla (2016) with Aaron Neuwirth

Shin Godzilla 2016

Enjoy Godzilla Vs Kong over the last week? I did! I’m following that movie up with a discussion on the 2016 Toho refresh, Shin Godzilla. Not only is it a fresh take on the series that has 30+ entries, it’s also one of the best Godzilla films ever made. Perhaps the best since the original. […]

Bobbie Jo And The Outlaw (1976) with Mike Vanderbilt

Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw with Mike Vanderbilt

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1992) with Jennifer Wreyford

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Jennifer Wreyford and I met in a former place of employment and upon first interaction with her, I was immediately captivated and taken with her skill as a speaker, a leader and someone who relatively has a great sense of communication with people.

I’ve been meaning to have Katie Rife from The A.V. Club onto the show since it started, but alas here we are, half a year into this and BAM – she has arrived. And with an absolutely delicious pick of a movie to boot. Though, I had no doubt in her picking something to bring […]

Persepolis with Sharareh Drury

Persepolis with Sharareh Drury

Sharareh Drury is a person you should be expecting to make regular house calls on The Brandon Peters Show. I’ve long appreciated and admired her work and terrific perspective on the world of film, television and media in general. When planning this podcast out in its early stages, she’s someone who I intended to be […]

The Great Dictator with Gretl Claggett

The Great Dictator with Gretl Claggett

Welcome to the encore performance of this episode! My laptop had taken on dump on me and lost the original one. But alas, it was recorded again and I think even more rich than before. Thanks to the world being crazy, the conversations political lean seemed to have much more meat on it and became […]

Wild at Heart with Nate Utesch

Wild at Heart with Nate Utesch

Technologically speaking, I am back with an all new laptop to bring you quality episodes of this silly show. And to be quite honest, aside from me not really having the capacity to do a polished edit, I enjoyed last week’s content with Russell McGee quite a bit. This week, my longtime friend Nate Utesch […]

Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. with Russell McGee

Well, this was not the episode I promised or expected to be leading the charge into 2021…but here we are! Please note that this episode is being released with the raw recorded audio and has not been edited as you’re accustomed to. Russell McGee is a friendship I’ve fortunate to have forged years ago. I […]

She’s won numerous accolades and awards for her stellar work in the medium. And not to be overlooked, Jen is a […]

Out of Sight with Maxwell Haddad

Out of Sight with Maxwell Haddad

Maxwell Haddad and I met through podcasting on Out Now with Aaron and Abe. When it comes to cinema and television, he has a beautiful mind regarding his criticism. Many of the best conversations regarding film and television I’ve had in my life have been with Maxwell. My first podcast, the IchaPod CraneCast, was co-hosted […]

Secondhand Lions with Molly Farnsley

Secondhand Lions

Molly Farnsley is another person from PopCon Fort Wayne in 2018 that took the podcast stage that never recorded. She was actually the first person I inquired about coming up to guest on it. Her artwork at her booth easily caught my attention and she seemed a delightful person when conversing for a few moments […]

Closing With A Song: “Adam’s Song” by Blink-182

Closing with a Song: Adam's Song - Blink 182

There was no way getting around doing Blink-182’s “Adam’s Song” this week. Every bit and piece of it was leading to this. Mark Hoppus was in Bleeding Audio. Female director. The Decline of Western Civilization was about punk music. My only hesitation is the song being kind of a bummer, but in turn that led […]

Out Now Commentary – Unstoppable (2010)

Out Now: Unstoppable

Time again for the Out Now Commentary track. This one (for November) is for Tony Scott’s final film Unstoppable. Celebrating its 10th birthday this year and since there’s no Top Gun coming, we decided to cover one of Scott’s films as we never have before. In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron Neuwirth (Out […]

We follow up the big Turkey Day Marathon with a BIG episode that has a BIG guest star in that of thespian legend BRIAN BLESSED (C’mon you know you said it in your head to the back row)! Enjoy this lengthy discussion on what we found to be one of the strongest episodes of Space: […]

The Decline of Western Civilization with Chelsea Christer

The Decline of Western Civilization

A couple weeks before launching this show, as I was knee deep in preparations, recording, scheduling and a bunch of madness, I somehow found time to squeeze in time to review an indie rock documentary called Bleeding Audio. The story of the band The Matches has wound up becoming one of my favorite films in […]

The Day Of The Jackal with Pres Maxson

The Day of the Jackal with Pres Maxson

I met Pres Maxson at PopCon Fort Wayne back in late December of 2018. Running a live podcast stage with nary a podcast to sign up for, I had to fill it with content and went looking around the convention for talent interested in discussing their work on stage.Pres was more than obliging. Needless to […]

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with John Rocha

The Good the Bad and the Ugly with John Rocha

John Rocha is one of the most treasured friendships I’ve made in this journey called life. We both worked in DVD Quality Control as I’d mentioned many times already going through the life of this show. “Johnny” as I’d call him, was the esteemed actor of the group, being the one that had the most […]

Addams Family Values with Sabina Graves

It’s hard to talk about Sabina Graves and not use the word “awesome”. A couple of years ago, she guested on one of the Out Now October Horror Specials to partake in our topic of women directors in horror. Sabina was a total joy to listen to and bounce off of in discussion. When I […]

The Fog with Justin Beahm

One of the most important voices in both the horror realm and home video, Justin Beahm is always a pleasure to have a discussion with. His ideals and outlook are always very positive and inspiring. Beahm takes nothing for granted and sees the value in every little corner of creativity. He’s also the head honcho […]

Hubie Halloween with Jessica Alsman

The Brandon Peters Show: Hubie Halloween with Jessica Alsman

Jessica Alsman is one of my favorite people and one of the best to collaborate with, too. Since our first meeting over four years ago, we’ve recorded plenty of hours of content for the earwaves. She’s typically game for whatever I’ve put her through and gives a billion percent every time. When Cult Cinema Cavalcade […]

The Bird With The Crystal Plumage with Molly Henery

The Brandon Peters Show 004 The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Molly Henery is a writer whose work and film mentality I’ve admired for a long while now. It was only fitting the show’s first guest I’ve not collaborated with before and first foray into horror be her. She’s a hustler when it comes to writing and covering horror films for film festivals as well as […]

Back To The Future 1990s Remake

The Brandon Peters Show: Back to the Future 90s Remake

Back to the Future turned 35 years old this year. This movie has been a seminal part of mine and many people’s lives. It’s perfect. Since the day it was released it has been celebrated, discussed, had documentaries, interviews and books produced all about it. What more could a silly podcast add to the discussion […]

Grosse Pointe Blank with Aaron Neuwirth

The Brandon Peters Show: Grosse Pointe Blank

My next guest perfectly compliments and follows up with the premiere episode. When I began writing for Mendelson’s Memos, I had a list of things I was hoping to achieve through my film writing. One of which was to guest on a podcast to talk about film and what have you. After my second or […]

Shanghai Knights With Scott Mendelson

The Brandon Peters Show: Shanghai Knights

Welcome to the premiere of The Brandon Peters Show! When it came to selecting the first guest for The Brandon Peters Show, there was only one person I had in mind. Scott Mendelson and I met the first week after I moved to Los Angeles in late June of 2005. In addition to growing up […]
