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. Listen in as we discuss the key components of a good romantic comedy as well as The Last Jedi vs Russia, Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker, nominations for the 17th class of Honorable Mensches, and as always end with our content of the week.
The original Predator film has got everything you could want out of an 1980s action film including Schwarzenegger, intense fights, cheesy one-liners, and an iconic monster. But what worked in the 80s doesn't always work in the 2010s. So with the new Predator lega-sequel, is Shane Black and his cast able to breath new life into this franchise? Listen in for our review as well as our thoughts on Henry Cavill being done playing Superman, the Captain Marvel trailer, the Emmy's, and as always we end with our content of the week.
A couple of times a year a film comes along that seems to spread through culture and when it happens you got to make a trip to see what all the hype is about. Well we are here to report the hype is real and Crazy Rich Asians delivers one heck of a fun time. So what separates this film from other romantic-comedies? Listen in to here our review but before that we talk the Oscar’s cancelling their Popular Film category, play a game of Movie Cast Mad Libs, and as always end with our content of the week.
In an age where movies seem to be following a formula, it is always a breath of fresh air whenever something comes along to breath new air into Hollywood. But does Searching provide more than just a new twist on a similar formula? Listen in as we review this new film from Aneesh Chaganty starring John Cho as well as do a wrap up of the summer box office bet and really the summer box office season as a whole, talk early reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival, and end with our content of the week.
