For 15 Christmas' now we have got to enjoy Will Ferrell as the always joyful Buddy the Elf. From snowball fights to candied spaghetti to decorations that rival the best of the best, Buddy captures the hope and wonder that surrounds Christmas. Listen in as we review this movie, talk Christmas movies in general and as always, end with our content of the week.
With one of the most impressive casts this year and a director whose last film won Best Picture in 2013, there is a lot of hype for Widows to live up to. Listen in as Jake and Cameron review Steve McQueen's new heist film starring Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo, Liam Neeson, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Collin Farrell, and many more (see, I told this cast was impressive). The guys also talk the new trailer for the live action/CGI Lion King movie as well as do the trendy thing and run down their favorite film from each year of the decade so far.
We were all fans of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as a movie. It was fun, mysterious, and a pleasure to be back in the Wizarding World. With Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, J.K. Rowling and company look to take the success and aesthetic and once again expand upon this beloved world. So to ask the obvious question, does this sequel once again capture that magic or does this film over complicate this universe? Listen in for our review as well as the nominations for the 19th class of Honorable Mensches and our content of the week.
Bad Robot? WWII? Nazi Zombies? Seems like a pretty killer formula for a movie. So do JJ and folks over at Bad Robot deliver on the goods or does the movie end up being the worst of all the elements? Listen in as Jake and Trevor review this new movie and finish off the episode with content of the week.
The time is here for us to travel back to our childhoods and talk about the magic (you know it had to be used) of the world of Harry Potter. We give our thoughts on each of the movies from the highlights to the cheesy moments, we talk all eight of the original movies and give our thoughts on why this is not only a great story, but one of the best franchises of all time. Listen in and enjoy!
We've been gone for a little bit but thats why we are playing catch-up this week and do two reviews in one episode. First up is First Man, the new film from Damien Chazelle (La La Land, Whiplash) starring Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong. We then transition into Bad Times at the El Royale, the new film from Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and whether or not this is a worthy sophomore film for the director. As always, we end with our content of the week. Listen in and enjoy!
Who would have ever thought that we would be here with Bradley Cooper directing a movie like A Star Is Born? There is a lot to talk about with this film between the performances from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to the music to the story to the advertising so listen in as we breakdown why everyone is freaking out about Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut. We also talk about James Gunn being hired to write (and possibly direct) Suicide Squad 2 as well as answer the impossible question of is Netflix really worth it? At the end of it all we put a nice little bow on top of it all with our content of the week.
After the results of our Summer Box Office Bet, Cameron chose to make Jake and Trevor watch Set It Up, the delightful romantic comedy now on Netflix.
