Contrary to common belief, the longer you do something doesn’t make it easier to do. Join us for our second triple digit episode where I chronicle just how tiring certain screenings can be despite having fun moments. Burt Reynolds, Jim Brown, Raquel Welch, and Jerry Goldsmith’s score go a long way here, but this one’s a #DimeADozen (or 10 of them depending on who you ask).
Before every comic book fanboy and pretender had a favorite entity in the ever expanding list of shared cinematic universes, Hugh Jackman landed the role of a lifetime as Wolverine. Capes and tights come and go, but the iconic badass with mutton chops and an ever present cigar found a soft spot in every movie goers heart. Nearly 20 years later, Fox gives his fans the due they deserve by honoring their favorite X-Man one last time in the latest evolution of the superhero genre #IdBuyThatForADollar
To celebrate an entire year of paying off our cinematic debts, Steve thought it would be cute to pick another Western. It was a great idea; however, this one doesn’t come close to our initial selection. Join us for a dismantling of a Best Picture nominee many have called “The Greatest Classic Western of all Time.”
A running topic on the show, and in my life in general, is the battle between universal acclaim and general hatred. When so many people qualify a film as good, its close to impossible to have a dissenting opinion. However, when it comes to films such as Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate, if everyone hates it, any critique is valid. Join us for this epitaph of a review where we share our conflicting views while trying to understand why this notoriously flopped so hard.
The week we mutually review an all time high four films together: Anomalisa (0:03:36), The Revenant (0:14:25), Slow West (0:32:28), and Mississippi Grind (0:39:41). Also on the docket are The Voices (0:50:49), Dances With Wolves (0:56:18), The Good Dinosaur – again, because I finally saw it (1:16:26), and The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1:31:21).
The first episode in our revamped titular show where we review Brooklyn, Age of Adaline, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Bone Tomahawk, Krampus, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, Chi-Raq, and Spotlight.
The first episode in our new show that is dedicated to reviewing films either one or the both of us has never seen.
