#B10 Wonder Woman

November 15, 2017

We love it when a film succeeds beyond all expectations. Directed by a woman and led by a woman, this DC franchise blockbuster proves that they can make a competent film for the masses with fewer mistakes. Save for the third act, Ralf and Oscar talk about the paradise beginning and the appropriate setting of WWI.

#36 The Big Sick, Ingrid Goes West, Thor: Ragnarok

We have a trio of films and their relationships. One is classic: it is the beginnings of a true life love story between a Pakistani comedian and an American student. The next one is more modern and disturbing. It’s a relationship between an internet stalker and an Instagram model. The final relationship used to be between a boy and his toy hammer but evolves to his adoptive brother and finally, to his home.

#35 The Thing, The Bad Batch, Suburbicon

October 30, 2017

 

This spooky weekend we bring you the three types of horror experiences you can have with films. The first is a horror retrospective of the much revered 1982 classic, The Thing. The second, we delve into the bizarre and atmospheric dystopian future of cannibals and heat with The Bad Batch. The final review is Suburbicon, which has the unfortunate and scary thing of being a poorly conceived film.

Where does the main character Bo have to go in order to fix his life dealing with a violent employer, caring for a sister and using his ambition to develop worthwhile magic? How can magic save the day? All interesting questions Sleight possesses are set in an all too real world that may merit multiple viewings.

As fans of his hits like Snatch and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., we turn onto his latest period frenzy epic, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. We also discuss Charlie Hunam’s recent success in the theaters playing wildly different characters. Will this latest Hollywood rendition of King Arthur bear fruit with audiences and survive critical scrutiny unlike the rest? Let’s find out.

We have a real duo of thought-provoking films within the exemplary visionary directions of critical darling filmmakers. The Lost City of Z and Blade Runner: 2049 share in visionary spectacle and questions of the human nature of our futures and obsessions. We end today’s show with Jackie Chan returning to action as a father seeking vengeance against the IRA.

#33 The Beguiled, What Happened To Monday, Kingsman: The Golden Circle

As we ponder on where the week went, today’s show asks seven sisters about legalizing all drugs in the setting of a Civil War era house. Sofia Coppola’s latest project has intensity within its subtlety and surprising stakes. What Happened To Monday may prove to be in the wrong genre but still possesses entertainment. Kingsman sequel is more of the same as it widens the universe of the characters.

#32 Colossal, Alien: Covenant, It

We go from playgrounds, to space, ending up at the sewers. We begin with a film wrapped in anguish over not going somewhere in life with a giant monster twist in Colossal. Alien: Covenant proves a lack of visual imagination and detail but may carry a nice momentum in the world of Alien from its predecessor; Prometheus. Finally, a remake audiences love to watch is It; the horror money-maker of the year with a lot of scares within its two hours.

September 1, 2017

From South Korea to North Carolina and ending up in an Indian Reservation, the boys discuss three very different films. The first is a multi-lingual adventure filled with friendships, animal rights, corporate restructuring and a superpig. The second is a whimsical and southern and entertaining heist flick by the venerable and never-retired Steven Soderbergh. Last and certainly not least, we travel to Wyoming to deal with the harsh cold and the two people tasked with solving a murder.

August 19, 2017

Oscar and Ralf try to catch up to recent films that were missed during the marathon episode and vacations in between. They begin with the female version of James Bond Berlin-set spy flick Atomic Blonde. They talk about the turmoil, action and pop music. Next up is The Dark Tower and speak to its merits as a sequel to the much beloved and complicated novels. The show ends with the much surprising Annabelle: Creation. The film shows us shoddy dialogue but amazing child performances with some level-headed horror filmmaking.

How will the 20-year gap of the memorable first installment be used to greater sorry effect for characters in their mid-life crisis? AMP has always loved Danny Boyle and his ability to genre-hop over the years since Trainspotting. We take in hist first sequel with much anticipation and you’ll see, a nice dose of respect.

Grave of the Fireflies is the critical darling that’ll break your heart. Whisper of the Heart shows the value of growing up and falling in love when young. Paprika is a sci-fi mind bender that merges the chaos of dreams with the strict reality. Hope you’ve enjoyed this marathon and see you for the next one!

#28 Personal Shopper, War for the Planet of the Apes, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

The latest from Olivier Assayas delves into a strange medium’s life as she waits for a message from her dead brother in Personal Shopper. The third installment of Caeser’s ape world has the best emotional punches yet. Valerian’s imaginative world building and adventurous atmosphere is great even if the plot and dialogue isn’t.

Similar to an episode in 2016, we’ve landed on three animated films. With other titles like The Beguiled and The Big Sick not available in Chicago yet, we had to turn to Netflix and Pixar to round out the corners of today’s reviews. Cars 3 proved better than anticipated but mainly just a kids flick. Blame! shows us a great picture of a world covered in city with a few classic anime problems. Waltz with basher pushes the medium by blending dreams and war within the documentary genre. Let us know what you think!

Spirited Away was our entry way into much of Japanese anime scene and still holds up amazingly. Nausicaa proves ever prescient on the world state of being with an apocalyptic future. Guardians, while a blast to watch on comedic and action levels, may prove to have more of the common Marvel Studios problems of lack of threat and predictability.

The Jungle Book, recently remade, has a fun loving atmosphere with a strange cast of animals. The only question we should ask about the Fast and Furious franchise is…. will the 8th be the last?

#16 Top 10 Discoveries In 2016

January 27, 2017

This final Best Of list for 2016. We promise. This time, it’s an original top ten list. We cover ground on any type of art (music, comics, movies, painters etc.) that we discovered of the past year. The twist is that the piece of art or artist must be from any year previous to 2016; that way, we won’t focus on only current events and opens up a way to talk about great stuff from history. We do hope you enjoy this Top Ten opus of ours. We’ll be taking an extra week off but we’ll be back to cover films very soon!

 

Next Time: Oscar Talk and two reviews.

#15 The 10 Best Films of 2016

January 20, 2017

The title is self explanatory. Let’s see how this tumultuous political year stacks up with screen art. Blockbusters and sequels took a turn of the worse but musicals, documentaries and animated pictures came back swinging. Luke is joining us from a remote location and we have tons of extras for you at the top and tail end of the show. Stay warm everybody!

Our first Best Of list for 2016, ringing in the new year! I know, I know. What is a film podcast doing with games? Well, as we look to end 2016 once and for all, we understand that all mediums of entertainment and artistic vision should be appreciated in some form. We bring a guest host to not only cover Luke’s temporary absence, but someone who has a different gaming taste than Ralf and Oscar. Hope you enjoy this and three other special Best Of treats throughout January.

#12 La La Land, Jackie, Life Animated

December 30, 2016

Happy holidays loyal cinephiles! This week, the final show of the year, will feature three much anticipated and highly regarded by the critic community films. We start with the return-to-form musical by La La Land and we hope our cynicism doesn’t tarnish the loveliness of the picture. We move onto the dread-like score and stellar Natalie Portman performance in Jackie. We end the show with Life, Animated; the documentary that won hearts and minds with its creative delivery.

#11 American Honey, Elle, Complete Unknown

December 17, 2016

This week features three reviews that’ll take us across America’s roads, into a revenge story in France and ending with a mysterious identity-changing woman. American Honey is the years’ road trip and coming-of-age according to most: see if we agree or disagree. Elle tells the story of an older woman overcome with an intruder as well as figuring out how to exact vengeance. Complete Unknown has a woman with an ability to change careers and identities at will.

#10 Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, The Edge of Seventeen, Nerve

December 2, 2016

#10 Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, The Edge of Seventeen, Nerve

While Fantastic Beasts had some great visuals, its plotting needs some improvement. The coming-of-age tale, The Edge of Seventeen proves that a first-time writer, director and producer can accomplish a witty, smart and insightful film. The daring concept of Nerve however, fails at almost anything intriguing except to provide few snippets of entertainment.

November 19, 2016

We hit a sci-fi flick, a coming of age tale and a political scandal. Curious as to which of these three new films will produce the best discussion? Let us know what you feel about the enigmatic and emotional one-two punch of Arrival and Moonlight. Is it important to view the all-too-familiar scandal of Anthony Weiner’s mayoral race in NYC as something more than business as usual? What kind of tragedy is there? We also discuss a little of what we’ve ben watching, including the prolific documentary 13th (Netflix).

#8 Jack Reacher 2, American Pastoral, Cafe Society

Halloween has passed. That means the ‘good’ Hollywood movies begin entering our theaters. We begin with the Tom Cruise vehicle Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, wondering if it can compete with its predecessor. We continue with the newly actor-turned-director Ewan McGregor’s adaptation American Pastoral. Can such a comprehensive view of a family falling apart be handled well with the actor? Lastly, we look back a bit earlier in the year to Woody Allen’s latest film Cafe Society. The surprise here is that one of us really loved the film.

#7 The Accountant, The Girl On The Train, Yoga Hosers

An eclectic set of reviews we have for you this week. We see how a stone-faced Ben Affleck can show emotion in The Accountant. We aim for sobriety with Emily Blunt in The Girl On The Train. Finally, we try to understand (and fail) Kevin Smith’s lackluster Canadian comedy Yoga Hosers. There are some extra goodies with small recommendations of Snowden, Pontypool, a 30 For 30 and The Big Short right after the opening.

#6 Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, The Magnificent Seven, Hunt For The Wilderpeople

This week, our reviews will take us to the old West, to the New Zealand wilds and to resurrected sunken ship. Tim Burton’s latest film has finally produced some success by blending a children's tale with some dark stuff. The New Zealand wilderness is given some great quirk with Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Finally, we show our great disappointment in the latest Hollywood remake The Magnificent Seven.

#5 Sully, Don’t Think Twice, Midnight Special

This week we talk about a true life story, an improv troupe, and a strange boy with supernatural powers. Sully may be Eastwood’s best in a long while. Don’t Think Twice puts a heavy dose of drama into the dramedy. Last but not least, Midnight Special flair for the chase might put a damper into the family dynamic.

We meet some white supremacy groups and potential terrorism with Imperium. We end the show by discussing two of the greatest actors of their generation discuss acting, delirium and Shakespeare with The Dresser.

An animated triple feature. We talk on some titles we’ve recently watched as well as delve into some movie controversy on one of the reviews. We begin with one of the raunchiest comedies in recent memory; Sausage Party. We continue by following a kid on a stop-motion spectacle adventure in Kubo And The Two Strings. Our last review will be the French, critical darling sci-fi film April And The Extraordinary World.
