Episode #233 – “Dunkirk” & “War for the Planet of the Apes”

Dunkirk of the Apes

Christopher Nolan’s films are always an event. Whether it’s a Batman movie or a movie about rival magicians, a Nolan flick is definitely worth tuning in for…and “Dunkirk” is no exception! His latest film is a true-life war epic and by golly, it’s his shortest film yet! That can only mean one thing…the tension will be at 11 for essentially the whole movie. We also review “War for the Planet of the Apes” this week…yes a dual-review episode! What a time to be alive.

Spider-Man Homecoming

Spider-Man has returned to the Marvel fold! Well, sort of. He still has Sony overlords but this Marvel-produced film sees Spidey swinging around with the likes of Iron Man within the ever-expanding MCU.

Episode #231 – “Baby Driver”

Baby Driver

We’re back from our little summer hiatus! And boy are we diving right in with a barn-burner of a film. Edgar Wright’s newest movie, “Baby Driver” may have a weird title but it more than makes up for that in pure adrenaline. After Wright’s “Ant-Man” debacle, he needed a hit to show everyone that he’s still got it…and “Baby Driver” proves that! In addition to our in-depth review we also talk about what we’ve been watching, including  “Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press” and “Rick and Morty”, before moving on to talk about our favorite car chase scenes.

It’s the first time Wonder Woman is in her own live-action movie…and unlike the other DCEU films, there seems to be a bit of humor!

Episode #228 – “Alien Covenant”

Alien Covenant

One of our most frustrating reviews came when we discussed (in-depth) Ridley Scott’s 2012 film “Prometheus”. We were left with so many damn questions that we eventually just threw our hands up in the air and said, “Let’s wait for “Prometheus 2!” Well, that moment is here, folks…sort of. “Alien Covenant” is the sequel to “Prometheus” while also trying to please the maniacs who just want an “Alien-style” slasher flick. How does this blended film turn out? Tune in for our review!

Episode #227 – “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” & “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”

Guardians of the Sword

\We’re back this with with TWO reviews…both films are in epic in scale and one is epic in quality! The other is “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”. We kick off the show with an in-depth review of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2″…has Marvel simply made a clone of the first film or does this one move us forward in their ever-expanding “Cinematic Universe”? We then talk about Guy Ritchie’s new film, “King Arthur” for probably way too long. It’s a weird, crazy film, so if you’ve seen it and need some soothing, you’ve come to the right place!

Episode #226 – “Free Fire”

Free Fire

What happens when a weapons deal goes south? Well, a whole lot of shooting, of course. That’s exactly what happens in the new film, “Free Fire”! A bunch of low lives get together for what should be a quick and easy transaction, but it turns out almost all of them are morons with big tempers. A feature-length shootout ensues…but is it any good? Tune in as we discuss! We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including the new Dave Chappelle Netflix specials and “Colossal”, before moving on to discuss our favorite shoot ’em up scenes in cinema.

This week we’re all about family. Yes, FAMILY. And why Dom would EVER turn his back on family. It’s a question we needed answered, so we saw “Fate of the Furious”, the 8th film in the “Fast and Furious” franchise. How does it stack up to the last few films (which have been pretty darn amazing)? Tune in as we go in-depth on this adrenaline-filled blockbuster!
