mv5bmjixmdi1mti2m15bml5banbnxkftztgwodyzodc2nte-_v1_sx640_sy720_Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Jem and the Holograms from 2015.  Is it truly outrageous, or just an outrage?

Can Google Earth be used for transitions? Can they get away with making a male cartoon character into a female movie character?  IS THAT JULIETTE LEWIS?!?!  Is Jem truly outrageous? Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at therufusproject@gmail.com

photoWow, two years…  Two years since the very first Rufus Project podcast went live!

It was such a different beast to what we have now.  There was no Redeeming Features section, a very strict format and two people trying hard, maybe just a bit too hard, to create something entertaining and informative (with a little self promotion on the side).

Right from the start, the intent to share the stuff that grabbed the attention and interest of Kristian and myself.  It took us a while to realise that, but once we did the process became more relaxed and the podcasts themselves started improving.

The biggest change form those early days has to be the Redeeming Features section, where Kristian and I watched a bad/poorly rated/controversial movie to see if we could find any redeeming features and perhaps redeem the movie itself.  From its start where I just made a list of features, a practice that ceased after I forced out a list for the abominable movie, Bloodrayne, it evolved into a quick chat with Kristian, to taking up the majority of the fortnightly podcast, to finally being its own entity late last year.

If you are game, you can check out The Launch Episode in all its over edited glory below!

The Rufus Project Episode 1: The Launch Episode

Hey, we even did a trailer for it that I am still proud of (which also kind of shows where our little mascot came from).

So cheers to The Rufus Project! Two years old, much evolved, and still evolving!

Let us know your favourite moments, and your suggestions for the next two years, in the comments below!

mv5bmtczmdi5ndewnl5bml5banbnxkftztcwntc4nzizmq-_v1_uy1200_cr11006301200_al_Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Mommie Dearest from 1981.  Is it a camp classic or a terror filled descent into madness?

Is it a movie about Joan Crawford? Is it a movie about Cindy Crawford?  Can anyone match Faye Dunaway’s performance?  Can Faye Dunaway keep that performance level for the entire movie?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

WARNING!  This podcast contains descriptions and discussion of child abuse scenes from this movie.  If you are distressed by discussions of child abuse then please check out another of our fine Redeeming Features casts.

The It Doesn’t Exist Episode

image

This week Trevor and Kristian won’t be discussing geek news and pop culture stuff because of technological and personal difficulties.

We thought that giving you all another super brief and lower quality mini episode we would skip this one and ficus on making sure next week’s Redeeming Features cast is awesome!

Yep, next week we’ll be checking out “Mommie Dearest” from 1981. Check out the trailer below to see what we subjected ourselves to!

Make sure you subscribe via your favourite podcast app to make sure you get the podcast as soon as it hits!

Now the moral of this non existent mini episode is…

Sometimes it’s better to not force out something you know can’t be flushed!

See you next time.
