Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie brings out the real humbuggery in Jacob by making him watch A Charlie Brown Christmas and Frosty the Snowman.

Jacob and Annie sat down and watched some old school Christmas specials. Jacob is not now, nor was he ever, a fan of Charlie Brown and Annie knew this going in. She had him watch A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965). As if it wasn't bad enough, each year Annie tries to get Jacob to watch Frosty the Snowman (1969). Oh boy did he lay into these shorts. We promise, we love Christmas just as much as everyone else!

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Jacob calls down the ultimate Christmas evil upon Annie with Krampus.

Jacob and Annie sat down and suffered the Krampus this lovely holiday season and boy was it... not good. Jacob tries to defend the movie, but listen as he fails miserably. The hosts are all over the place, probably to avoid talking about the movie. We did have fun talking about Christmases past though!

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Jacob brings Annie into his world of video games with The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.

Jacob and Annie watched the dramatic showdown between two men, each of them seeking to be earn the top score in the Donkey Kong video game. In both of our eyes, it is clear that one of these men are worth that title. They really tear into a couple of people in this documentary, but both of them feel crummy about it later. Jacob gets a little too personal with his own experiences in video game and both hosts flip out over a listener message!

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie pushes Jacob off a cliff with the biographical documentary McConkey.

Jacob and Annie watched the extremely charismatic and stunty performer Shane McConkey in the documentary that shares his name. In 2009, McConkey took it one jump too far and met a tragic end. However, both hosts agree that he lived a full and exciting life at 100 miles per hour. Annie looks on the bright side and offers a ski lodge party theme with the return of Annie's Party Central.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Jacob and Annie bear witness to one man's descent into senility, frustration, and madness with Jack Rebney, who is of course better known as the Winnebago Man.

Our minds are shit today as we try to do Winnebago Man (2010) justice. This is going to be an odd show because if you haven't seen this documentary, there is a whole lot of context you'll be missing. If you aren't down with cursing, this isn't the show for you. This was a lot of fun and our introduction to our documentary series for November 2016.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Jacob and Annie fight some trolls alongside the one and only Ernest P. Worrell.

This week, the hosts watched Ernest Scared Stupid (1991). This was a blast from the past, ya know what I mean? There was definitely some trollish funny business. Jacob and Annie wax nostalgic and talk about Halloween costumes from childhood. Jacob looks way too deeply into the philosophy of Ernest and Annie reveals her troll racism. It was a blast to watch this movie and even Annie had to admit that she came around to Jim Varney's beloved character by the end.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie tries to cast a spell on Jacob, but it is just a bunch of Hocus Pocus.

This week, the hosts watched Hocus Pocus (1993). Oh boy, was this movie a blast. Jacob was ashamed to admit that he actually enjoyed the hell out of this movie. Annie reveled in every moment of nostalgia. Stories galore! We talk old times and enjoy this movie way more than we should have. Annie's plays some Bloody Murder and Jacob give this movie a fair rating.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie takes Jacob along on a road trip with the fictitious band Stillwater as they watch Almost Famous.

This week, the hosts watched Almost Famous (2000) and this movie brought out a whole lot of emotional reactions. Although they enjoyed the film, Jacob experienced way too much displaced anger against Penny Lane. Annie reminisced about times past and tells an awesome story about meeting one of her rock star crushes. Then Jacob completely embarrasses himself by revealing his celebrity crush. Annie's party corner goes retro and Jacob writes a review. A lot of laughter and a lot of memories in this one.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie pulls the rug out from under Jacob with the completely random 2015 movie, True Story.

This week, the hosts watched True Story and boy was this a complete surprise for Jacob, having literally never even have heard of this movie before pressing play. However, this film didn't disappoint, even if this was a movie in which nothing really happens. The hosts recount their memories of watching movies that feature James Franco and Jonah Hill and talk about how out of character the roles were for these actors. There is also a few format changes that we discuss just to keep everyone in the loop.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Jacob puts Annie to sleep with the 1991 comedy romance, Defending Your Life.

Annie and Jacob watched Defending Your Life. Jacob had memories of watching this as a child and remembered it being so captivating. However, this film did not quite hold up. The hosts gave it a lukewarm reception. Jacob talks over Annie like bonkers and Annie writes a review for this laugh to yourself, although intriguing, movie from a time when the romantic comedy had not quite found its stride.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie has Jacob watch the 2014 psychological mind bender of a war movie, American Sniper.

Annie and Jacob watched American Sniper this week and both of them enjoyed it, but gee whiz did that movie pack a downer of a finale. We went WAY too deep into this movie and found a whole lot of introspection that probably wasn't actually there. Annie talks about an American Sniper Party, which isn't actually as gruesome as it sounds. Jacob gives this movie a review and we put this one down for good. Headshot.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Jacob 

Annie and Jacob watched Robocop together and surprisingly, Annie was into it. What was she in to? The over the top violence? The hilariously bad one liners? The random commercials thrown in for....reasons? Regardless, this one was alright  Both hosts enjoyed this movie at great length and talk about some of the finer points. Annie joins the dark side and explains her love for the special effects and Jacob explains how to sell this movie to a date, should you want to be bold enough to show this to a date. Annie ends with a review of Robocop.

Cinema Throwdown is the only podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down in an endless movie watching struggle. This week, Annie inflicts the 2004 romantic drama The Notebook on Jacob.

Annie and Jacob watched The Notebook together after a magical evening out to dinner with family and an enchanting care ride home, sharing the musings of life. That is about as preposterous as the premise of this movie. We are far too cynical for this type of movie. Both hosts provide their thoughts through a breakdown of the film. Annie's Party corner features pancakes and way too many drinking games while Jacob writes a scathing review for this love story.

Cinema Throwdown is the podcast featuring a showdown of cinematic proportions. Each week, hosts Jacob and Annie challenge each other to watch a movie and break it down.

As an introduction to the show, the hosts, and the magic behind Cinema Throwdown, Episode 00 is an essential listen that gives some background into this humble podcast. Each week, the hosts will be challenging each other to watch a movie that is outside of their comfort zone and give it an honest chance. There is no movie in this episode, but rather the hosts lay the ground  work for what is to come, culminating in the coin toss that decides the fate of both hosts by giving the winner power to choose the first movie.
