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.
The latest Tarantino flick is going to draw everyone to the theater this Christmas, so much so that we expanded our setup to include our good friend Luis.
