Episode #267 – “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Bohemian Rhapsody Queen is one of the greatest rock band of all time. Maybe THE greatest of all time. So how do you take all of the band’s energy and bottle it up into a 2 hour film? Well, we get into that. But one thing’s for sure…Rami Malek kills it as Freddie Mercury. Question is, will we see his name pop up in awards season?

Episode #266 – “Halloween”

Halloween

A movie 40 years in the making! Jamie Lee Curtis and our favorite killing machine are back for the REAL sequel to 1978’s “Halloween”. None of those other movies matter, THIS is the one that is cannon now (we think). So does Michael Myers still have it in him? Can he take out a ton of screaming teens AND the one who got away all those years ago? Tune in to find out!

Episode #265 – “First Man”

First Man

Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling teaming up for a movie about the moon landing? How can that NOT be good? Well, one of us tries to make the case that this movie really isn’t over the moon when we review “First Man!” Unlike “La La Land”, there’s nary a song to be heard in this movie, but where it lacks in musical numbers it makes up for with raw rocket power. How does “First Man” land when all is said and done? Tune in to find out!

Episode #264 – “A Star Is Born”

A Star Is Born

This week we’re tackling one of the most anticipated films of the year! That’s right, I’m talking about Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, “A Star Is Born!” It brings together our favorite(?) member of the Wolf Pack with pop queen Lady Gaga for a tale as old as time. The question is, has that tale gotten a bit stale? With incredible music and stunning performances, “A Star Is Born” is shooting to the top of many “Best of 2018” spots…but will it make ours? Tune in to find out!

Episode #263 – “A Simple Favor”

A Simple Favor

This week we’re tuning in for a film that’s been called “Hitchcockian” in its nature. Does director Paul Feig actually pull that off in his latest movie, “A Simple Favor?” Well, he DOES follow in Hitch’s footsteps by casting a stunning blonde in the lead, but is Blake Lively enough to make this seemingly high-budget Lifetime movie into something more? Tune in to find out!

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

Another week, another rom-com? Why not! We’re going from “Crazy Rich Asians” to Netflix’s surprise summer hit, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”. It’s like all those high school films about young love from the 80s and 90s rolled into one and released on your nearest streaming service. Was this movie too full of stuffy nostalgia or does it carve a path of its own? Tune in as we go in-depth! We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “The Sinner” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”, before moving on to talk about our favorite films of the summer. Tune in!

Episode #260 – “Crazy Rich Asians”

Crazy Rich Asians

We’re back with our review of one of the most highly-anticipated films of the summer! But there’s not an action scene or superhero in sight with this movie…believe it or not, we’ve got a rom-com on our hands. “Crazy Rich Asians” is being celebrated because of the step forward it represents for Asian actors on screen. Honestly, that’s probably most of the headlines you’ve read about this movie, but what about *the actual movie*? How good is it really? We’re joined by friend-of-the-show Diana Baik as we go in-depth on “Crazy Rich Asians”!

Episode #259 – “The Meg”

The Meg

It’s shark week here at Two Guys, One Movie! Jason Statham brings us “The Meg”, a movie all about a really, really big shark. But is this shark movie more “Deep Blue Sea” than “Jaws”? We go in-depth (probably too in-depth for a film like this) to find out! And because this movie is so ridiculous, we said ‘screw it’ and decided on no separate spoiler section. So be warned!
