We are going back to our roots with this 1999 Lifetime classic, Ultimate Deception. It stars Yasmine Bleeth and Richard Greco and a whole lot of over the top acting. Stephanie is so very very into it. Plus we learn about the time that Michelle's grandparents turned a crib into a bar
Well the weather outside is frightful, but this movie is kinda delightful? I mean, its not great but I didn't want to rip my eyeballs out so bonus?
Playing the part of Michelle this week from the Beckett To The Future podcast (https://www.beckettfuturepod.com/), its Rachel Rosing
So sit back with a warm cup of cocoa, put on your best pair of Converse and settle in for a tale of romance and what happens when cousins marry to preserve a royal bloodline.
No, not THAT Home for the Holidays. You mean you haven't heard of the 1972 ABC Made For TV Movie starring Jessica Walter, Sally Field and Walter Brennan? Well now you have. Its kinda like that other Home For The Holidays but like real 70's and real murdery. We might have found our new favorite Christmas movie.
Michelle and Stephanie take a moment to talk about some things they are thankful for. Mostly its food and British Comedy. So relax, put on your eatin' pants, curl up with some leftovers and find out some of Stephanie and Michelle's favorite things.
We know its November. We know Christmas is 6 weeks away. Do we care? No. Christmas is officially on here at Lifemark studios. This week, we watched Window Wonderland. It has Naomi Judd who is absolute perfection. And department store windows which are decidedly less perfect.
Happy Halloween, Lifemarkers! Michelle totally pulled a trick when making Stephanie watch this movie. Its like the necco wafers of Halloween movies. We watched the Disney Original Movie Don't Look Under The Bed. Also, Steph and Michelle try to figure out the physics behind the Boogie Man, Beautiful Mind like.
Happy Shocktober, boys and ghouls! Ready to get scared? There is a whole lot of murder in this week's movie, Ten: Murder Island. Sadly, there's not a lot of plot. But there IS a lot of strobe lights, so we'll call this one even.
Stephanie's fear of teenagers is confirmed with this week's movie, Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal Michelle takes us through all our options when it comes to Cheerleader magazines. Also we find out that cheerleader magazines are a thing.
Michelle and Stephanie are back. Hallmark Movies are back. Sorrento Farms is back. That's right! It's the sequel to Autumn in the Vineyard, Summer in the Vineyard. We catch up with Frankie and Nate and check in on that llama, Mittens. Also, Stephanie nearly died at a museum this week and Michelle learns about tacos.
This film has 200% more Phoenixes than any other movie we've watched. Plus 100% more servings of cottage cheese. This is Backwards: The Riddle of Dyslexia starting River and Joaquin Phoenix
It's a movie where Sharon from Grease 2 becomes a kleptomaniac. Thats most of what you need to know before watching Portrait of a Teenage Shoplifter. Michelle and Stephanie also come clean about the things they stole as teens.
What happens when a bunch of teens become Nazi's for like 4 days? Things get real intense in The Wave from 1981.
"We give this movie 72 thumbs up".
This movie stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Helen Hunt and Allie Sheedy. Plus like 33 rabbits. Its Watership Down meets Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Its "I Think I'm Having A Baby"
We dig deep in to the high stakes world of high school cookie sales in this week's movie, All That Glitters. We also wax nostalgic about the movie Troop Beverly Hills and we review the TGIFriday lineup in the winter of 1989.
Who knew paper mache could lead to so many complicated feelings. It's Less Than Perfect Daughter, another "television event" from the ABC Network
Have we found it? An after school special who's message is actually relevant? Maybe. We had to wade through anchovies and dixieland jazz to find it though. Its "What If I'm Gay"
Episode 50 is a big deal. So is having a new show on the Ear Trumpet Audio network. So, to celebrate both, we invited our newest podcast hosts, Jake and Carrie from Love YA Like Crazy to do an episode exchange. I don't think they knew quite what they were getting themselves into when they said yes, but here we are and they've suffered through The Shunning, starring Michael Landon Jr.
Michelle and Stephanie will be recording an episode of Love YA Like Crazy in the coming weeks so follow Ear Trumpet Audio on Facebook and Twitter!
Also, you should totally subscribe to Love YA Like Crazy, which you can do at www.loveyalikecrazy.com
In this episode, Michelle and Stephanie talk about all the bad things that could happen to you while riding a carousel and share their love of Golden Girls. Its Have You Ever Been Ashamed Of Your Parents starring Marion Ross and Jennifer Jason Leigh
Scott Baio shovels Raisin Bran into his mouth. Also Michelle and Steph try to list as many slang terms for marijuana as possible. It's Stoned!
This movie's punk lead makes Avril Lavine look like Johnny Rotten. Thats right. We watched The Day My Kid Went Punk starring Lenny Kravitz' mom, The Boy Who Could Fly, Dr Bricker from Love Boat and the Governor from Benson. I couldn't make this up if I tried.
Welcome back to Lifemark : Summer Nights. We're back with another ABC after school special that is all about dead kids and onion rings. Its A Family Again. We have the stars of LA Law and Rikki Lake taking us through a journey about grief and hand cranked ice cream.
Summertime, and the livin' is easy. We all remember the joy of summer vacation but its important we don't get too complacent, falling into the peer pressure of being a cool teen.
Have no fear. All summer long, Lifemark will be here to give you the cautionary tales your youthful heart craves with Lifemark : Things We Learned This Summer. That's right. We are going pro-Lifetime and watching a dozen ABC after school specials to keep you on the straight and narrow this summer. We kick off our summer series with Schoolboy Father, starring Rob Lowe and Dana Plato. Also, ths movie is called Schoolboy Father which should clue you in to how amazing this will be.
We also talk about our patreon campaign where you can tell us what movie you want us to watch and even be a guest on our show. Visit www.patreon.com/eartrumpt for all the details.
Next week will be our one year pod-a-versary so in honor of that and Mother's day and the fact that Michelle and I have been busy saving the world, we are re-releasing our first episode - Mother May I Sleep With Danger
After talking about it for months, we finally watch the D&D cautionary tale Mazes and Monsters starring Tom Hanks. Stephanie talks about how afraid she was of D&D when she was 9 and Michelle talks about what it means to roll a "diabetes check". It was more fun than killing orcs.
Sometimes we struggle on deciding what movie to watch. And the sometimes we luck upon the most amazing made for TV gem. And that's exactly what happened this week when we found Camp Cucamonga. Have you ever wondered what would happen of George Jefferson and Urkel were in the same movie? Wonder no longer as we tie a sweet little bow on the final episode of Candace Cameron Bur-April.
