Denzel Washington

Episode 35: Denzel, Ma Belle

Mar 31st, 2017 Episodes J

If there’s anything we love at High Five: The Podcast, it’s long walks on the beach, a warm tray of Bagel Bites right out of the oven, and Denzel Washington. Once we get started talking about D-Wash (that’s what we call him because we’re on a better-than-first-name-basis), it’s hard to stop. On this very special episode, Q and J break down the Top 5 Denzel…

Dumb & Dumber

Episode 34 – Jinxies: Mutt Cutts Jammies

Mar 24th, 2017 Episodes, Jinxies J

Few movies leave a lasting impression on kids of the 90s like Dumb & Dumber, and J & Q are no exception. You can guess that this episode is pretty much just them quoting lines and scenes of their shared #1 from the Top 5 90s Comedies episode, and you’d be right, but it’s oh, so much more than that (“Kick their ass, Seabass!”). During the…

And the Academy Award goes to…..La La Lan…….oh, wait…..it’s High Five: The Podcast!! Yeah, that’s an easy joke, but we made it, so shut up.

Empire Strikes Back

Episode 30 – Jinxies: Tauntaun Onesie

Feb 24th, 2017 Episodes, Jinxies J

The Empire Strikes Back is one of Q and J’s favorite movies, but you’d never really know it listening to the newest Jinxies episode. Maybe it’s the sugar from the snacks or just that the guys are up WAY past their bedtimes for another slumber party, but they are loving making jokes tonight at Han Solo’s expense. After sharing Star Wars: Episode V as their #1 intergalactic…

They cover all the right notes and there’s not a Glee episode to be found (suck it, Glee). What’s…

In High Five: The Podcast Season 2, we’re taking on new worlds, just like when the Ghostbusters or Clerks took on new lives as animated series, but WAY less sucky. To start off this season on a Buffy the Vampire Slayer high (and not a Lethal Weapon low), we’ll be discussing what makes a good TV adaptation of a successful film. Is it really all…

Feb 3rd, 2017 Episodes J

Well, that sucked! Q and J celebrate the garbage fire that was the year 2016 the only way they know how, talking about their movies. The guys comb through the cinders of celebrity deaths and political unrest to point out which movies made the biggest impact on them throughout the year. Keep in mind, these aren’t the BEST movies of 2016 (since J and Q…
