It's Valentine's Day, folks! If you have not checked out our V-Day special about "Romantic Movies", this is your chance to catch up! Just... Breakfast on Planet X: Valentine’s Day Edition – Romantic Movies (+ interview with Léa Tchabada)

It’s all love, passion and heartache in this week’s episode of Breakfast on Planet X!

Valentine’s Day is around the corner so we decided to discuss the state of Romantic Movies!

BOPX regulars Dee and I-am-Better are joined by a very special guest: Rare English Rose from England, beloved TV-recap writer and self-declared “resident swooner” brings some charm to our podcast!

We discuss:
Our favourite romantic movies, our favourite onscreen couples, if “chick flicks” are of any worth, which romantic movies we dread and more.

And: Ronnie James Dio, at the time imprisoned on Mars, sent us his list “Top 5 Romantic Power Ballads”! He put so much heart into that list that he listed two #3 and left out a #2!


 

And following the episode is…

“Geek Amazons from Planet X- Episode 2”!

BOPX has a new series: In the upcoming weeks, we will present you interviews with women from the Geek Galaxy! The interviews will be attached to our regular episodes. Cosplayers, actresses, female comic book fans and artists, geek models and more! We give you a glimpse into the female side of geekdom!

Our second guest: Léa Tchabada, up and coming “Suicide Girl” model and hobby Manga- artist!

  • I_am_better

    First Euro-lineup!

  • I_am_better

    Hahah! Brilliant “Total recall”-soundbyte!

  • Fate_Slistcrunch

    Dee had me at hello too.

  • I_am_better

    I have a mild case of Chekov-itis. I pronounce “TV” as “Teewee” all the time

  • I_am_better

    Whoa, Dio just bursts into the room like a SWAT-team.

  • Dee

    I spell “bat” as “bad” in the end.

  • I_am_better

    I guess we get a pass for these as non-english speakers.

  • I_am_better

    Good list

  • Will you split the interview from the regular cast in the future, kinda like SUK did?

  • Dee

    Let’s see!

  • Rose classing up the joint as always.

  • I_am_better

    She takes the attention away from our ramblings, lol

  • I_am_better

    LMAO, thanks for that speeded-up voice. I shoulda added a few names to make it longer

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    All I can think of is Lea farting in that tub.

  • RJD

  • RJD

    Boooo

    I.mean

    Yea I mean boooo

  • I_am_better
  • RJD

    Rose had a great pick. But as non romantic as the sweetest thing movie is. I still laughed at it. I thought it was light years funnier than bridesmaids. Christian aka kelly bundy. Forever my fav

  • I_am_better

    If they add an eighth day to the week.

  • I_am_better

    Hahaah. That Eurovision-theme at the end made a statement!

  • Abe

    Let’s Dee.

  • Abe

    It’s where they keep the nuclear wessles.

  • I_am_better
  • I_am_better

    I can’t help it. No matter how much i try

  • Abe

    My American is showing. I have no idea what this is.

  • I_am_better

    European Union banner

  • My She’s All That outburst from last night was timely.

  • She was totally flirting with you during the tattoo question.

  • Abe

    Bridget Lin is the definition of adorable in Chungking Express.

  • Abe

    I never saw Ashes of Time Redux.

  • Fate_Slistcrunch

    Jackie Brown. Good pick.

  • Dee
  • Abe

    Thanks! To be honest I told IAB before that the best movie couple of all time are Corky and Violet from Bound.

  • Dee

    I think you are thinking of Faye Wong.

  • Rare English Rose

    Fun show guys. I enjoyed chit chatting with you!

  • Rare English Rose

    That was such a perfect touch. Tee hee!!

  • Rare English Rose

    Our overlords!

  • Rare English Rose

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! It was terrible lol!

  • Rare English Rose

  • I_am_better
  • Mr Nick Nightly

    My favorite romantic/love story films:

    Buffalo ’66
    The Fountain
    Moonrise Kingdom
    Eyes Wide Shut
    Wild At Heart

    Cemetery Man
    What Dreams May Come

  • I_am_better

    To be continued, for sure

  • I_am_better

    That’s a good list. I’m sure Dee will shake his head at one of those, but….

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Well, we can’t all be Austrian.

  • Abe

    I am! Thank you

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Yeah man, Moonrise Kingdom was different.

  • Dee

    What Dreams May Come? Yeah

  • Tim R.R. Something

    He still loves her.
    Which one?
    Each one.
    Awwwwww.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Sugarland Express.

  • Dee

    underrated

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Maybe because it’s Goldie Hawn people think it’s lightweight and goofy?

  • Bop

    My favorite romantic movies are

    Keith
    Bring Me The Head Of The Machine Gun Woman
    Audition

  • Dee

    Why not!

  • I_am_better
  • Bop

    And Dracula Untold was a great romantic movie as well.

  • Bop

    Lack of likeable characters doesn’t only plague romantic movies, I have to say.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I LOVE that movie.

  • Once is my favourite romantic film. Period.

  • This Valentines Day, surprise her with a Christmas present.

  • The whole concept of Valentines has come creeping in the past 20 years. Its bullshit if you ask me. St Valentine ?? What miracle was it he supposedly performed ? The first blowjob ?

  • My favorite romance movies : TRUE ROMANCE and Natural Born Killers.

    Thats true love right there.

  • Love songs—– Too many to mention .

  • If you take your girlfriend/boyfriend to see Fifty Shades of Grey on Valentines, make sure you also buy a Fifty Shades of Grey Cock Ring. Look for them next to the kids toothbrushes at your local Target store.

  • Did they glamorize whores in Pretty Whore ??

  • The GoTG romance was totally gratuitous . First they had to make sure nobody thought Pratt was gay 6 min into it by having a purple bitch with him. Who he just blows out of the airlock i guess. Then they made a TOTALLY bullshit love connection between him and Gamora , which from a reader of the comics point of view was MEANINGLESS ,stupid, and out of character.

    We get it. Pratt is not gay……

  • due for a movie remake

  • Dee

    Well, they dumbed it down.

  • Dee

    …and we never talked about “Casablanca”. Clickbait for the generation 50+.

  • Dee

    I loved it.

  • Dee

    Yeah I have no idea.

  • I_am_better

    The first successful open-heart surgery?

  • I_am_better

    Well, I see that my calendar was totally f*cked up.

  • I_am_better

    No surprise really. I rarely know even the current date

  • I_am_better

    I guess it’s saturday, then. No difference whatsoever still

  • mmmm Ingrid Bergman. Stunning

  • Kylo Ronin

    Yep. I agree with Better. Just another Wednesday.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Adjustment Bureau kinda passed me by and maybe I should watch it now.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Ha, great editing in that Total Recall soundbite.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Into The Night, huh? Sounds like my kinda movie.

  • Kylo Ronin

    House of Flying Daggers, another one on my list.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Chungking Express. I really need to fix my error of passing over it.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Hey RJD!

  • Kylo Ronin

    That’s really sweet, mang, dedicating the song to the chick you got to second base with.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Uh, the one that got away. Feel ya there.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Being a hero. Nice.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Awesome number one, RJD.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I have a love hate relationship with chick flick movies.

  • Kylo Ronin

    That is a really messed up message they force in chick flick movies.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Yeah, Pretty Woman is a product of its time.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Formulaic. Stuff could be written better.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Oh God, I hate the part where they break up around the 90 minute mark due to a misunderstanding or something stupid. Only to come back together.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I actually think the kiss at the end of Edge works, cause it basically means this is the last time they’ll see each other and they know that they’re not walking out of it alive.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Exec 1: Okay, so if Arnie ain’t gonna do Die Hard, who is?
    Exec 2: *blows raspberry* Dunno, uh, the guy from Moonlighting?
    Exec 1: ………………..
    Exec 2: It was a joke-
    Exec 1: I LOVE IT.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Likable characters in chick flicks. Agree with Better here.

  • Kylo Ronin

    That Suicide Girl kinda reminds me of somebody……………….

  • Kylo Ronin

    Good interview! She seems like a cool person.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Awesome pods. Yeah, I got some romantic movies I like:

    Romancing The Stone
    Far and Away
    Beauty and the Beast
    Warm Bodies
    Knocked Up
    Zack and Miri Make a Porno
    500 Days of Summer
    The Princess Bride
    The 40-Year Old Virgin
    The War of The Roses

  • Dee

    You name it… It’s hilarious when they could not solve the misunderstanding because one stormed out before the other could say something. Yawn!

  • Dee

    Yup. Directed at women, no less.

  • Dee

    You won’t regret it!

  • Dee

    Thank you! Which Beauty and the Beast?

  • Dee

    Someone you know?

  • Kylo Ronin

    That chick, Lea Seydoux.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I’m sorry, should have specified which one since I keep forgetting there’s like a billion versions. The 90’s Disney one.

  • Dee

    one of my favourites!

  • Rare English Rose

    True. Maybe I am just anti-kissing and curmudgeonly these days. 😉

  • Rare English Rose

    Give it a watch!

  • Rare English Rose

    Sometimes it’s hard to believe Tom and Nicole were married. I need to do a Tom and Nicole retrospective!

  • I_am_better

    Yes. That would be interesting 🙂

  • RJD

    the chemistry between them in eyes wide shut is so hot it feels lije its been in the freezer for now more than 24 hrs

  • RJD

    i agree with you and i am very pro kissing where emily blunt is concerned. but they had no chemistry due to toms love of penis

  • RJD

  • RJD
