#103 Bad Education, Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind, City Lights

The focus this week will be on HBO’s film series. We’ll hit two new or recent releases, first talking about corruption within the public school system in the period drama Bad Education. Then, talking about the late, great actress Natalie Wood in a documentary that follows her life and career. We conclude with the latest entry in our Sight & Sound marathon with Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights from 1931 and marvel at the physical and unique comedy stylings.

#102 Blow the Man Down, The Report, Apocalypse Now

This week, we’ll be reviewing titles exclusive to Prime Video. We will be plunged into a close-knit and violent seaside town. We’ll linger in rundown corridors and behind closed doors to find the truth and crimes of the CIA. And, we’ll let our sanity drain completely in Vietnamese jungles. Overall, a mixed bag of likes and dislikes for these movies with the highlight of the great war epic. Stay tuned for next time, when we face off with a different streaming service; HBO.

#101 Pulp Fiction, Chasing Amy, There Will Be Blood

We’ve reached triple digits! For a special one of a kind episode, we deiced to pick three films that are personally awesome. Luke went with the Kevin Smith classic Chasing Amy and we discuss its merits for such a 90’s movie. Oscar picked the quotable There Will Be Blood in order to further the dark version conversation about America and what it means to be American since the 1900’s. Ralf went with the coolest pick, Pulp Fiction and yes, we try to add something new to say about this beloved crime-comedy as with the others. Happy quarantine.

#100 Bloodshot, One Cut of the Dead, The Night of the Hunter

Happy ongoing quarantine! This week, we feature some new movies that are available for streaming. The first is Bloodshot, the latest efforts to show Vin Diesel to be an action hero but ultimately fails in memorability. One Cut of the Dead, out of Japan, is a clever horror comedy about a one-shot zombie film that shows its true colors once its over. The Night of the Hunter is the 1955 classic that tackles some extreme and psychotic notions of religion within the turmoil of a great depression. Hope you enjoy and stay safe out there.

#99 The Hunt, Contagion, Casablanca

We truck on over at AMP with regularly scheduled shows. We begin with one of the ‘rentable’ non-theatrical theatrical releases with the satirical The Hunt. It bites and it pokes lots of fun at two distinct American groups while delighting in violence. We go back to 2011 with Contagion; an amazing film that relates so closely to the world landscape of today with Corona. Contagion is our take and acknowledgement of COVID-19. Going even farther back in history, we discuss the amazing storytelling of Casablanca as part of our current marathon of the best films of all time.

#98 The Invisible Man, Horse Girl, The Third Man

We’re back in full force with a regular show! We first bring you a remake from the great classic, The Invisible Man. This time, with a twist, the story revolves around the victim trying to suss out the tech-powered maniac and heightens the horror with great build up. Horse Girl is one of the latest Netflix flicks, delivering some good mystery with a great performance by Allison Brie but felt mixed with the plot and seeming meanderings. We begin our big marathon that correlates with the Sight & Sound best films of all time with The Third Man. A great mystery told simply and without fat or qualms as to where the story goes.

We rejoice as the foreign film Parasite takes several gold statues and we find that a host-less ceremony is the way to go these days. Our elusive third host Luke returns to us from Palm Springs to give his view on the big night. Stay with us throughout the month for our Best Films of the Decade.

If you think movies in 2019 were great, then TV was amazing. We bring on special annual guest Matt to discuss our best TV shows with some surprising overlap. Netflix and HBO are the reigning kings when it comes to content but we don’t miss out on the creativity coming from Japanese animation. 2019 also marked the ending of several TV goliath and critical darlings.

Welcome to the end of a decade in movies. As the inevitable best-films-of-the-decade show comes next month, we talk about 2019 and all its glory. The year was an amazing year for movies of all shapes and colors and sizes. Many trends are seen in several titles as well as certain actors standing out above the crowd of really great performances. Blockbuster movies took a hit, especially in the summer, but the high-water mark that is Marvel’s 20-year odyssey worked out great. Tell us your best films and discuss out lists.

#B34 Fast & Furious Present: Hobbes and Shaw

Lets see how much torque is required for an action movie franchise to spin off two crazy strong characters and make us love it. The Rock and Statham team up oxymoronically to fight the black Superman (Idris Elba) with even less espionage-intrigue than previous Fast & Furious entries but compensates with crazier action sequences involving skyscrapers and cliff edges. The movie is a blast.

It took a while but Marvel’s first super heroine is here! While Captain Marvel and the lady underneath the suit Brie Larson are awesome in the film some of us felt underwhelmed by the end. The 90’s references and music were overdone but a lovely way to introduce a Superman-like hero with conflict.

We pit the sexy capers of Entrapment with the debonair art thief of The Thomas Crown Affair. See you who makes it out on top. We also delve into the black Bonnie and Clyde with Queen & Slim and the part three of the Star Wars trilogy, opening weekend.

What does a more better-made and heavier on action version of Red Sparrow look like? It’s Anna. Femme Fatale to the max in this modern version of the female spy taking on the men and power that take advantage. A twisty and fun action flick that pulls two sides of power back and forth.

It’s QT time! A film much anticipated and a period piece that marvels its historic place with style and retrofitting like Django Unchained and The Inglorious Bastards. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood works as a love letter to a certain age of cinema and lead very well by Pitt and DiCaprio. Can’t wait for you to join us.

#91 Knives Out, The Irishman, The Illusionist vs The Prestige

A nice set this week. Knives Out brings a modern whodunit story with heavy classic homages and influences. A great project after Rian’s previous Star Wars entry. Likewise, the great Scorsese’s follow up to his mob and crime films, The Irishman, is a well-tendered movie that spans decades and marks a glorious and awful time in our nation’s history. Lastly, The Illusionist and The Prestige get their due with our newest Twin Film marathon entry; comparing magician’s and their motivations for continuing their work.

Ford vs Ferrari is the racing film to please all crowds but maybe not us as much. The Good Liar has two extraordinary leads and a good direction to make something thrilling and memorable.

The final stretch of ‘regular’ episodes are a-comin.’ We begin with two unique visionaries in their thrilling/atmospheric/horror fields. One takes the Stephen King sequel novel to The Shining and makes an entertaining shine-filled, tense tale of soul sucking vampires and a certain hotel. The other takes a look into a certain time period and type of superstition associated best with the sea and the aura and allure of certain lighthouse and its keepers. Finally, we begin a short but going to be ongoing marathon called Twin Films; pitting two movies closely released to each other and close in plot. Find out who we think is the winner.

#88 Haunt, Zombieland: Double Tap, High Life

Before double tapping that zombie, we have a double bill of Halloween flicks for the season! Zombieland: Double Tap doesn’t make its predecessor good or bad but doesn’t provide any actual reasons to exist other than fun kills and quips galore. Haunt (on Shudder) has the bones of a paint-by-numbers horror flick where a group of youths gets killed off one by one in a haunted house, but manages to have fun gore and good background character work on the main heroine. High Life, while not a horror, certainly provides a ghastly situation. It’s about a group of convicts set into space to improve science and with little to no hope of surviving physically or traumatically.

#87 Joker, El Camino, Midsommar

Yay for short titles. This week, we uncover strange locales; Swedish commune, Albuquerque, and Gotham (70’s New York). Joker takes a page from dark tales like The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver but perhaps misses the point? Either way, an interesting film with an amazing central performance. El Camino brings the Breaking Bad crew back to tell the tale of Jesse Pinkman’s escape from the law and other bad elements to a life he sorely deserved. Midsummer wraps a toxic relationship in a box filled with trauma that rests atop a pagan cult.

#86 Ad Astra, Rambo: Last Blood, American Factory

An unlikely trio of flicks to be sure. American Factory is an even-handed portrayal of Chinese and American cultures clashing over work ethics and company behavior. Rambo: Last Blood has a script with many holes and inconsistencies but the action serves the brutality and machismo that is to be expected and overall fun. Ad Astra lends an intimate viewpoint of a son searching for the meaning of his life and his father to Neptune. Beautiful, energetic and at times, surreal.

#85 It Chapter 2, The Amazing Johnathan Documentary, Hail Satan?

There’s a change up from the roster. Instead of the horror flick Hagazussa, we decided to talk about Hulu’s new hit documentary about the Amazing Johnathan. A story that unfolds into a wholly different story. Hail Satan talks about the modern movement of the Satanic Temple and its creed to actually separate church and state while encouraging religious pluralism. It the sequel is unfortunately a bombastic shadow of its predecessor with great casting that doesn’t save it at the end.

#84 Ready Or Not, Where’d You Go Bernadette, The Last Black Man In San Francisco

This weeks’ roster of flicks are met with mixed feelings by both Ralf and Oscar. The Last Black Man In San Francisco is being received really well by critics and those who are nostalgic for childhood homes but not us. Bernadette has some good performances and charm but fails to justify the elongated first act and redemption at the end. Ready Or Not is a fun ride that doesn’t go beyond its premise and trailer when it could’ve easily provided some layers to go along with the mayhem.

#83 The Kitchen, Fast Color, The Souvenir

This week, we delve into three different tales told and lead by women. The Kitchen is a comic book adaptation about three women taking charge of mob activity in NY in the 70’s. Good pacing but some third act rushing. Fast Color is a low-key indie superhero movie about a girl on the run and searching for a way to retrieve her gifts. The Souvenir is a toxic person that a young female filmmaker falls for in her youth in the 80’s.

#82 The Lion King, The Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, The Dirt

This week has the heavy, the light and the horrid. The heavy with substance and history is The Rolling Thunder Revue, which shows Bob Dylan and his group in the 70’s knocking the house and minds down. The light is the music biopic of Motley Crue; their crazy ups and highs and drug-fueled lows. The horrid is the unnecessary, photo-realistic remake of The Lion King.

Anita looks like his Terminator and mixing in some good actors of recent films should provide awesome entertainment and, hopefully, more than that.

Lets see where we go from here.

A mixed bag for all ages and spanning some generations. Bringing the emotional saga that is Toy Story 4, which is geared for the new parents that grew up with the first installment. Pleasantville is a blast of a blast from the past; reliving a hopeful and fictional time of America in the 1950’s with a splash of color. The Dead Don’t Die shows a meta rendition go the zombie apocalypse through the many types of American eyes living today.

Strange human connections, fame both fictional and based on real life and extremes in human complexity shape this weeks’ show. Chungking Express is the 4th film of our Cities/Towns marathon that connects two couples in unconventional ways in Honk Kong. Her Smell shows the mania of a lead punk singer and the trail of debris she leaves in her wake. Rocketman proves that musical biopics have yet to reach new depths but can hold a candle for Elton John fans enough.

Animation used very very well. Spider-Man; the superhero most used on TV and film returns with a self aware attitude of its predecessors and reinvigorates the mythology of Peter Parker as well as animation as a medium with a great story, inspired casting and an overall cool demeanor. Rarely has a mixing of animation styles worked so well as it did here and let’s not forget the success of using 3D to the movie’s advantage when it came to the action sequences and dramatic beats.

#76 Under the Silver Lake, Perfectos Desconocidos, Enter the Void

The three films we cover this week requires an unblinking eye. Under the Silver Lake is a throwback to Hitchcokian noir and a strange LA puzzle-box flick featuring disenchanted people. Perfectos Desconocidos (Perfect Strangers) shows just how bad a dinner party amongst best friends can get when all cell phone alerts, calls and texts are read in front of everybody. Enter the Void, part of our marathon, shows the unique and trippy perspective of taking drugs and afterlife when a young man dies suddenly and glimpses his past and the future laid out for his sister. A movie meant to be experienced not just watched.

Overlord feels like a close and gory and fun adaptation of the WWII shooter. This period action flick knows where to take itself seriously and when to have fun and you can feel it with the opening scene, mirroring a potential serious war drama then filling into the German testing grounds of Nazi soldiers with glee.

Avengers has a fun and great middle with memorable bookends. Wayne’s World shows us how to chill and party on while giving us blueprints to the way some movies are made. Unicorn Store is Brie Larson venturing beyond acting in a quirky and colorful comedy.

#74 Pet Sematary, Transit, 25th Hour

This week we tackle the horrors of badly adapting a Stephen King novel, the bitter timelessness of a Nazi-occupied France and a New Yorker hate rant that turns to the best hope for humanity. Pet Sematary has a great supporting cast but falls through lots of meandering, especially by the end. Transit asks the viewer many questions about surviving amongst survivors, learning from history and who forgets first; the one who leaves or the one left behind. 25th Hour is a crowning achievement from this century, depicting New York in a post-9/11 world that understands the complexities of hate but holds out hope.

Today's show has a couple of juicy movies and a dud. Triple Frontier tries to teach greedy ex-military lessons but misses its character developments and the point by using a sledgehammer. Jordan Peele’s latest horror film proves the need for mainstream originality and has amazing scares and performances. Blue Velvet is the first in a series of eight films that starts our Streets and Culs De Sac marathon; a David Lynch classic about the terrifying underbelly of small town life.

#B26 Bad Times At The El Royale (MARCH)

The person behind The Martian and The Cabin In The Woods has made a great action mystery. We do not get many film like this anymore; the mystery, crime and tonal glamour. Several coinciding tales of types of criminal behavior rolled into a cohesive fun time. The setting of the El Royale and secrets it holds is worth the genre exercise.

#72 Greta, The Lords of Chaos, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

This week, we discuss what it means to be true Norwegian Black Metal, how do build a windmill (DIY style) and the best way to act in New York. Toxic relationships is the motif in Greta which brings a good director and devoted European actress to ram up the tension. The Lords of Chaos embraces the fallacy of sticking to the ‘truth’ in typical biopics and becomes more horrifying. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is the latest of directorial debut from a prominent actor that is the lightest and brightest film of the batch.

 

Next Time: Us, Triple Frontier, Blue Velvet

March Bonus: Captain Marvel

#71 Academy Awards, High Flying Bird, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Has 2018 in movies end yet? The answer is yes officially with the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, completely host-less. We bash Green Book and compliment Roma and more opinions about the evening. High Flying Bird brings the experimental side of Steven Soderbergh with the play behind the play of basketball racial politics. The third installment and lesson of how to actually train a dragon comes to a close with a mixture of adoration and disappointment.

#B25 The Predator (FEBRUARY)

Shane Black’s history of screenwriting and directing (Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) has bode well or well enough. Out comes a new rendition or sequel/remake-ish mashup of the classic action flick. It has a promising enough cast and something to say about the series as a staple in American alien horror. The Predator may not the action comedic hit it wanted to be but that isn’t for the lack of trying.

#70 The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Velvet Buzzsaw

Will you ever forgive us for reviewing yet another biopic? We think you should and hope you enjoyed Melissa McCarthy’s performance as we did; not to mention the good storytelling on display about a blocked writer that resorts to forging to make ends meet. The Lego Movie 2 proves that some sequels are good and entertaining and doesn’t have to meet the expectations of it predecessor. Velvet Buzzsaw has Nightcrawler cast and crew back to deliver a horror movie hidden at first as an art-critique tale within LA.

 

Next Time: TBD

#69 Academy Awards Nominations, Fyre Fraud, Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

Our first normal show of the year! Today we will talk about some of the good choices the Academy made with the nominations including titles like Roma, The Favourite and BlackKklansman. We also talk about the social politics of not using a host this year and their boneheaded nominations like Vice, A Star Is Born and Green Book. We also have an experimental double review brought to you by Hulu and Netflix: Fyre. A scam and festival set of documentaries where Oscar reviews the Netflix special and Ralf covers the Hulu one. Should be fun.

#B24 First Reformed (JANUARY)

We bring you an interesting bonus episode. We’re here to talk about a best-of-the-year contender starring the fluid Ethan Hawke. What does our modern day world mean to good people? What is thoughtful in a thoughtless culture? The story of a priest coming to terms with the sins of his surroundings and the authority figures that bring him down touches all who watches. A swift and bitter decline from ignorance and a movie worth talking about.
