Cosmic Sin – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 96
“Being sucked off by the universe doesn’t sound so bad.”
Net-positive Corky McDonnell and net-negative Daniel Barnes commit a cosmic sin by reviewing Bruce Willis in Cosmic Sin. This brain-dead space opera stars Willis as a fading star who refuses to do second takes or give a fart.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss Q-bombs, robot bartenders, Costas Mandylor-ians and blood generals.

This week’s darer: Dean Longenecker
Dean’s dare: “I love my sci-fi. I like Bruce Willis, I don’t have any problems with Frank Grillo. I can usually forgive some stupidity in the story if everything else is at least ok. This is not possible with this utter shit show of a movie. Year 2524. We have quantum physics space travel. But we still drive early 2000s pickup trucks and chopper motorcycles. Story, sets, F/X, acting all BAD! They tried to say something about your life decisions, I think.”
IMDB synopsis: “A teenage boy and his father move to his recently-deceased mother’s hometown, where they encounter the ancient Native American cemetery with the power to raise the dead.”
