About Us

Pick Six Movies is a movie podcast where each season we select six movies, all related to a single theme. We examine the history of the people in front of and behind the camera, try to make sense of how and why the movie was made, then discuss each one in way too much detail to see if they are any good.Pick Six Movies is hosted by Bo Ransdell and Chad Cooper, two life-long friends with a shared passion for discussing things they barely understand in an attempt to make each other laugh.

Latest Episodes

S9: Episode 6: Firestarter

E“Firestarter” ends this Stephen King inspired season with a bang! This movie has everything you could want in a movie. Drew Barrymore, David Keith, explosions, bloody noses, secret (maybe) military compounds, George C. Scott playing a Native American (maybe) who might be a pedophile (he’s definitely a pedophile) and Art Carney toting a shotgun. Join us as we wrap up episode six of this season with an 80’s classic that never disappoints.

S9: Episode 6: Firestarter

S9: Episode 5: Maximum Overdrive

EStephen King writes, appears in and directs this high octane, comet created, maniac machine, terrifying tractor trailer, swear word spewing technology filled, let’s blow everything up movie! This film has dead kids and dead pets, deadly ice cream trucks, evil sentient self flying airplanes, rocket launchers, a bible salesman, Lisa Simpson, pornographic wallpaper, a guy with an affinity for water-sports and on top of all that UFOs. It is one of the most insane movies ever reviewed on this show. It’s awesome.

S9: Episode 5: Maximum Overdrive

S9: Episode 4: Graveyard Shift

ENot all Stephen King film adaptations are based on novels. Some of them are based on short stories. This episode is an example of filmmakers taking one of King’s small narratives, expanding on it, and turning it into a dumpster. It’s full of actors and actresses who almost look like other famous actors and actresses. It does have Brad Dourif (pictured above clarifying what number he will be doing in the bathroom). Dourif is the most famous person in this movie and that says a lot. Join us as we head down into the basement to go looking to kill us some rats as we take on a this disastrously bad movie.

S9: Episode 4: Graveyard Shift

S9: Episode 3: The Running Man

EStephen King…I mean Richard Bachman wrote the novel that inspired this 80’s futuristic action classic staring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Conchita Alonso and original host of “The Family Feud” Richard Dawson. This episode explores the fascinating history of Richard Bachman and has a thorough exploration of a movie that looks to be mostly filmed on a sound stage at night. Yes there are impressions of Arnold and Jessie Ventura and there’s so much more. It’s a good one.

S9: Episode 3: The Running Man

S9: Episode 2: Silver Bullet

ETo celebrate our 50th episode we picked the Gary Busey spectacular, “Silver Bullet”. This werewolf filled cinematic nightmare is filled with so many twists and turns that you won’t know who the identity of the mysterious murdering werewolf is until the end of the first 10 minutes. (It’s the preacher.) Enjoy.

S9: Episode 1: Carrie (2013)

E“Carrie” was Stephen King’s first published novel and his first novel adapted into a motion picture. But we’re not talking about that movie, which received multiple Oscar nominations. No, we’re talking about the 2013 remake of “Carrie”, starring a cast of incredibly talented people that made a movie that’s a real dud. But that’s just how we like our movies here, filled with dud. My mother loved this episode and told me over and over again…”They’re all gonna’ laugh at you!” Thanks mom.

S8: Episode 6: Conan the Barbarian (2011)

E“Conan the Barbarian” wraps up this season of remakes and reboots. There’s a lot to unpack in this tale of warriors, witches, swords, revenge, hookahs, Coors Light, hot wings and the Edgar Winter Group rock classic “”Frankenstein”. Let’s do this Bro!

S8: Episode 5: The Wicker Man (2006)

ENicolas Cage stars in “The Wicker Man” remake from 2006. This movie is a psychological crime thriller set in a modern day utopia where filmmakers deem it appropriate to have their heroic male lead beat up not one, not two, but three women in this movie. This movie is a crazy mess of misogyny, misdirection, and misguided efforts to remake a movie nobody wanted to see get remade.

S8: Episode 4: Fantastic Four (2015)

E“Fantastic Four” is the 4th episode of this season’s theme “Not That One, This One” where we are taking on nothing but remakes and reboots. This film does a an amazing job over making sure to never put the Fantastic Four together all at once until the last 10 minutes of the movie. We know, it’s not very good. Just the kind of movie that makes this show come alive.

S8: Episode 3: Poltergeist (2015)

EThe remake of “Poltergeist” gets us to the half way point of this season’s theme, “Not That One, This One”. It’s a truly amazing film in its ability to underwhelm audiences in all new and unexpected ways. In this episode we try to answer who really directed the original “Poltergeist” and keep forgetting that a remake was produced, even though that’s the movie we’re discussing. Strange indeed.Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jane Adams and Jared Harris all star in a remake of a 1980’s horror classic. That was a good movie and is why this show’s intro is all about the good one. So give a listen and enjoy the delightful train-wreck of a movie, “Poltergeist”. (Not that one, this one)
