Episode 6: ‘Iron Man 2,’ ‘The Secret in Their Eyes,’ ‘Babies,’ Eric’s mom, Fixer & Defender

It’s officially summertime. Trust us, we’re movie critics. This week on Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider we talk about the first big summer blockbuster, “Iron Man 2” starring Robert Downey Jr. and a slew of other famous faces. We both agree you’ll have a good time, but won’t be blown away. Bayer tells everyone, including Snider, to go see Oscar winner “The Secret in Their Eyes,” and both critics understand babies are cute, but the movie “Babies” grows tiresome. Our first guest joins Movie B.S. and it’s Momma Snider! Plus, a summer movie preview, a rousing game of “Fixer and Defender,” and we dive into the B.S. mail bag for the first time.

Movie B.S. – Episode 5

In a turn of events no one could have foreseen, the remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is terrible! So say Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider both in this episode of Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider. And while neither of them saw “Furry Vengeance,” they’re pretty sure it’s terrible, too, and Eric offers some tips on how to tell the two movies apart. There’s also some talk of the Tribeca Film Festival, of Jeff’s bicycling and volleyballing prowess, and a Pitch Me movie idea involving Judi Dench and time travel.

Movie B.S. – Episode 4

Jeff Bayer was in Hawaii, so Eric D. Snider’s pal Andy Blubaugh, a Portland filmmaker, fills in for this week’s show. Andy even did his homework by seeing the J-Lo movie “The Back-Up Plan” with Eric, a mistake he won’t repeat any time soon. Eric’s review of “The Losers” is also a downer. Andy’s own film, “The Adults in the Room,” is also discussed, and it is agreed (by Eric, anyway) that Eric plays the most important role in the film.

Movie B.S. – Episode 3

Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider both agree “Kick-Ass” is a good old violent time in the third episode of “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider.” “Death at a Funeral” isn’t a big winner, and Snider compares it to the original British version. Snider may just have a chance to beat Bayer in Fixer & Defender as Bayer stumbles through “Star Wars — Episode II: Attack of the Clones.” Most importantly, in Pitch Me the critics come up with a Christopher Walken/Sam Elliott movie that can’t be missed.

Episode 2: ‘Date Night,’ ‘The Runaways,’ Fixer & Defender, and more

“Date Night” gets approval from both Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider in this, the second episode of “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider.” Somewhat less approved in “The Runaways.” Eric liked “City Island,” which Jeff didn’t see. Jeff and Eric also make fun of the insane things that happen in Tyler Perry’s latest movie, play a round of Fixer and Defender with Kevin Smith’s “Cop Out,” and share weird memories of “Mary Poppins.”

Episode 1: ‘Clash of the Titans,’ ‘The Last Song,’ Pitch Me, and more

In their premiere episode, Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider rip on “Clash of the Titans” (especially its cheap 3-D) and Miley Cyrus’ “The Last Song.” They also discuss 1983’s “Hercules” (starring Lou Ferrigno) and try to make up a Samuel L. Jackson/Michelle Pfeiffer movie on the spot. And for some reason Jeff says “all the sudden” instead of “all of a sudden.”
