Recorded April 28, 2021

You’ve heard of smoke bombs, pipe bombs, nuclear bombs… but box-office bombs? The only thing that these kinds of bombs are blowing up is producer money. And we’re to explain the how and why! We break down the anatomy of a flop through the lens of 2000 sci-fi epic from Scientology’s greatest minds and some scam artists (allegedly!) Battlefield Earth. Along the way, we construct our own bomb and create a pitch for ViacomCBS’s cash grab nightmare The Paramount+ Movie.

Which properties can we mash together to destroy Paramount financially? What does it take to make a bomb? What the hell are thetans?

All this and more on Bargain Binge - the last bastion of physical media and your wallet!
