Zombie Take-Out Episode 292: Nyuks in Space

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier Scotto and Uncle John continue their now year and a half long mission into the Star Trek universe to discuss the fifth and what many would consider to be one of the worst installments in the franchise. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1989, it's Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Does it live down to the hype? Is the fan dance scene the most cringeworthy thing every committed to film? Is Nimbus 3 just a cheap knock-off of Tatooine? Was Kirk an atheist? Did Spock nerve pinch a horse?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 291: Heart of Jerky

Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death Scotto and Uncle John discuss an adventure comedy that parodies feminism or ant-feminism or maybe both, as well as several other things that were relevant several years before the movie was released. A film that's also notable for being one of Bill Maher's rare acting jobs. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1989, it's Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death. What exactly is the movie trying to say? Is Bill Maher right to be embarrassed by it? Is it all the director's fault? Could Shannon Tweed be the next Leslie Nielsen? Guacamole or clam dip?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 290: Kitchen Sinknado

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens Scotto and Uncle John discuss the fourth installment of their favorite movie franchise that combines inclement weather and carnivorous sea life in an episode recorded immediately after the film premieres, with the hope of having the first recorded review on the internet. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2016, it's Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. Was Gemini just a poor placeholder for Nova? Who would have been a better choice to play Aston? Why did they kill all of the named black characters? Should they have stayed in Vegas?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 289: Being Tom Noonan

Anomalisa Scotto and Uncle John conclude their two-part look at the directorial work of Charlie Kaufmann with a film that has a cast of only three actors and none of them ever appear on screen. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2015, it's Anomalisa. Would the repeated faces have worked in a live-action film? Did Lisa exist or was she just a figment of Michael's imagination? What exactly did Michael do with the Japanese antique? Is it possible for there to be someone out there for everyone? Does the spaghetti go on the chili or vice versa?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 288: Crashing Ambivalently

Synecdoche, New York Scotto and Uncle John kick off a two-part look at the directorial work of Charlie Kaufman by discussing a film about a play in which art imitates life to such an extent as to make the two indistinguishable from one another. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2008, it's Synecdoche, New York. Does the movie try to say too much? Did the priest have to play Basil Exposition? What was the connection between Caden and the cleaning lady? Why was Hazel's house on fire? Schenecdoche.
