This week our hosts took on Won Ton Ton a film attempting to parody the animal craze in Hollywood during the 1920’s. The film came to Cup of Tea via Michael’s father – Rich – who saw the movie countless times when he worked in a movie theatre in high school. It wouldn’t have felt right to watch it without him, so this week Cup of Tea welcomes a special guest host, Rich Horecki, to see how the picture stood up decades later!
We’re doing something a little different this week. We are approaching the first anniversary of our podcast and wanted to celebrate with a mega sized review.

2012 is none of those things. Find out what it actually is by listening to our 3 minute review.
Combining elements of video games, Groundhog Day, and Looney Toons this action, comedy, family drama has a little too much going on for its own good. But does that make it the biggest and best movie ever or just a made by committee mess? Listen to our review to find out…
An aging Jean-Claude Van Damme, a peak Dennis Rodman and a convoluted yet somehow generic spy-thriller plot did not add up to greatness. With an odd assortment of action and comedy, this week our hosts tackle one of the more confounding movies of the late 90’s.
Join us this week as we take a three minute look at a lesser known action movie from the early 90’s starring Mickey Rourke as Harley Davidson, and Don Johnson as the Marlboro Man. This buddy action movie has a lot going for it, but dies it have enough? Listen to our three minute review below.
This week our hosts take a look at a teen thriller from 1996 starring a very young Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg. This movie has some great moments and a strong execution.
