Episode 77: DREDD/Saranac Haus Lager

We talk about the 2012 action film DREDD for episode 77. We give props to Karl Urban, who manages to scowl for the entire length of the film. Speaking of length, we praise the 95 minute running time. We ponder whether Olivia Thrilsby actually does a nude scene or if it’s a body double. We also talk about Saranac’s new Haus Lager in their German Roots fall pack! Have a listen and let us know what you think!

Episode 72: BLACK CAESAR/Lagunitas 12th of Never Ale

We get serious on our 72nd episode with the blaxploitation film BLACK CAESAR, talking systemic racism in the ’70s as well as today. We get into the cultural themes of the film, talk about Fred Williamson’s awesomeness (cool sideburns!), the exposition provided from James Brown’s soundtrack, and the impact The Godfather and ’30s noir films had on it. Ww also cover Lagunitas’ 12th of Never Ale, which is a deliciously refreshing pale ale!

Episode 71: THE MUMMY/Pilsner Urquell & Genesee Helles Bock

Blood and Black Rum Podcast covers the trainwreck 2017 film THE MUMMY starring Tom “Clueless” Cruise. It’s a vapid, overblown action film that truly has nothing to do with the original Universe horror classics, and we talk about its stupid action scenes, Tom Cruise’s obvious flaws as a scamp character, the idiocy of the film’s multiple settings, and more! We also discuss Pilsner Urquell and Genesee’s Helles Bock beers.
