"Good. Nice sense of irony, blowing up the bomb unit" - Ned Trent (James Woods)

Well, on the downside after two great weeks we are back to talking about bad movies. On the upside however it is a bad movie that has one of cinema's most unintentionally funny sex scenes (rivalling "Showgirls" and "Watchmen") and a wonderfully unhinged performance James Woods (back in simpler times when he just seemed like a fun actor instead of well, you know). That's right this week Craig and Scott are talking about 1994s "The Specialist." Stallone's sole attempt to cash in on the erotic thriller trend of the late 80s-mid 90s. As you may have guessed, it did not go so well but that doesn't mean there is not plenty to talk about!
Over the course of the episode you will hear Craig and Scott talk about the lack of sexual chemistry between Stone and Stallone, Rod Steiger's perplexing Latin American accent (we can't be any more specific than that as we can't tell you what country he is attempting) and are generally mystified by how seriously this film seems to take itself. Plus, Scott attempts to recast the film, try to figure out the logistics of Ray Quick's "controlled explosions" and the pair ponder whether Eric Roberts character in the movie is actually a vampire.
