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.

Episode #225 – “Fate of the Furious”

Fate of the Furious

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!

It’s morphin time! The Power Rangers are back and there’s no Ivan Ooze to be found anywhere! It’s been a long, LONG time since the Rangers have been on the big screen, so just about everyone in the 26-32 year old bracket is excited for this new film. Does it do justice to the cheesy TV show we all love and remember? We break it down. We also discuss what we’ve been watching, including “Trail & Error”, before moving on to talk about the new trailer for “Justice League”. Tune in!

We’re back with a huge review of one of the biggest films of the year! Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is tearing up the box office (no surprise there) so we brought in guest host Amanda Avery to help break down the film!

Episode #221 – “Kong: Skull Island”

Kong: Skull Island

“Is that a monkey?” Sure is! Kong is back in a BIG way…big enough to take on Godzilla, because that’s exactly what Warner Brothers has planned for the giant ape. If WB can’t make their comic book universe work, dammit they’re going to make their giant monster shared universe work! “Kong: Skull Island” throws some A-list stars at us along with some great CGI in hopes we don’t realize this is a really expensive B-movie. Does it work? Tune in to find out! We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Making History”, and move on to discuss the latest “Game of Thrones” news.

Episode #220 – “Logan”

Logan

Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine is here! “Logan” set the box office on fire this weekend, proving R-rated comic book movies really can exist. This movie is not for kids, and the opening 2 minutes makes sure the audience knows that. But does gritty beards and hyper-violence make a good film? Tune in as we break down this latest X-Men spinoff. We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Say Anything” and “Sherlock”, and move on to discuss the “Deadpool 2” teaser.

Episode #219 – “Get Out”

Get Out

“Get out!” That must have been the reaction studio execs gave Jordan Peele when he told them he wanted to direct a horror film and not a comedy. But he’s the one laughing now, because “Get Out” is a bonafide hit! We go in-depth on Peele’s directorial debut this week, talking about the film’s message and the super-crazy ending. We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Edge of Seventeen” and move on to discuss the epic mess that was the Oscars. Tune in!
