#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.

We’re o.g. Robert Rodriguez fans from Desperado to Sin City. Not all of his projects are hits but his energy and flair for action hasn’t been compromised. Anita looks like his Terminator and mixing in some good actors of recent films should provide awesome entertainment and, hopefully, more than that.

A superhero, romantic and mystery box movie walk into a bar. One is about a friendly neighbor spider who is mourning and may prefer a more normal life. Another shows a world without The Beatles but one man who rises through the charts with hit after hit. The third shows the true nature of the city of dreams and the toxicity of people and their desires. Which one orders the whiskey sour?

A highly anticipated film to say the least. We’re all fans of 2000’s Unbreakable and the ending scene of Split told us that M. Night wasn’t done with this world. We;re happy to say that Glass has a lot to say about our current superhero state, about the essence of sequels and opens up a brand new can of worms. Great performances form Jackson and company. Lets see where we go from here.

#79 Toy Story 4, The Dead Don’t Die, Pleasantville

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.

#78 Rocketman, Her Smell, Chungking Express

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.

#B28 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (MAY)

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.

We have a Keanu Reeves double feature review! One is about a scientist that clones his tragically dead family and the other is about an ex-assassin that murders more poor souls than any two slasher franchises. As part of our Cities and Towns marathon, we delve into Uncle Buck; a classic dreamed featuring John Candy working as substitute parent for his nieces and nephew.

#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.

#B27 Overlord (APRIL)

Wolfenstein put on film! Some films can imitate the feel of a beloved game franchise or like Hardcore Henry, can pull off looking like a game. 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.

#75 Avengers: Endgame, Unicorn Store, Wayne’s World

The biggest movie of the universe is first on deck this week. The three hour spectacle was met surprisingly well by one of us with superhero fatigue. 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.

#73 Us, Triple Frontier, Blue Velvet

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.

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.

February 4, 2019

#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.

The very same rules apply to television as we sued for movies. There’s Honorable Mentions, Disappointment and Missed Opportunities. We have a special guest who has a more diverse show-watching habit than Oscar, which has a diverse list from Ralf. There will be a couple similarities but expect network shows and anime in addition to the critics faves. Also, on a positive note, the reigning channels or streaming services don’t belong to any clear winner: it’s quite spread out this year.

#B23 Sorry To Bother You (DECEMBER)

Sorry to bring this up, but Sorry To Bother You, much like most people out there, is super interesting. Lakeith Stanfield shows us his leading role promise by turning into a confident salesman trying to get by this life of corporate gods and political subterfuge. It’s bonkers, hilarious, dark, loving and has something to discuss in virtually every scene if not every plot and subplot.

#65 Creed 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Schindler's List

Two sequels and a period piece walk into a bar… This will be our last official show of the year, so why not go with two big moviegoing flicks and a past Best Picture winner. Schindler’s List is Spielberg’s most influential film besides some of his sci-fi work and we find his heartstring pulling and technique to be at the top of his game. Ralph Breaks the Internet was more literal than anticipated but a good message about friendship nevertheless. Creed 2 is a clear fun romp of a boxing flick. We’ll be back just before the end of the month for a look in films in 2018 before releasing Top 10.

#B22 Hereditary (NOVEMBER)

Get ready to be frightened of ants, miniature houses, light poles and obviously, witchcraft. Everyone has been raving about this latest epic horror film about a mother losing her grip on reality as her family suffers tragedy after traffic event. It is boldly directed and with a few daring strokes that makes it not fit for all horror fans. Let’s see which one of us enjoyed this film.

#64 Widows, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Hook

#64 Widows, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Hook

We have a special show in my opinion. We dive into Widows, a genre film like few others where expectations and craft are worked effortlessly. We also continue our Spielberg marathon with Hook, a movie that defines many our age an we take a look at the long-lasting effects. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs was a late addition to the show and it proves to be an amazing choice. We break down all the shorts and marinate in the Western heaven the Coen Bros. have made.

#63 Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far On Foot, Empire Of The Sun

Hello ladies and germs. This week, purely by happenstance, we present three biographical depictions from people living through hard and wild times in the 40’s, 70’s and 80’s. Bohemian Rhapsody hardly needs an introduction but we do discuss the merits of choosing the bands’ most famous song as its title. Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot is a wonderful biopic about an alcoholic cartoonist played greatly by Joaquin Phoenix. Empire of the Sun, out of our Spielberg marathon, tells the story of a boy growing up way too fast on a Japanese POW camp during WW2.

Today’s show is a horror October special. We begin with the latest remake-sequel combo of the O-G masked murderer Halloween; bringing back the scream queen herself. We also delve into the bizarre and cult-leveled and gory atmospheric Apostle, starring the great Dan Stevens. As part of our ongoing Spielberg marathon, we talk about a horror sci-fi anthology film The Twilight Zone. Dante, Spielberg, Miller and Landis join forces for a mixed bag of fun stories.

#B21 Solo: A Star Wars Story

Have you ever wondered how exactly Han got his full name? That is the aura of the review coming to you today with Solo. While we enjoy some of the action-caper elements brought by Ron Howard and the two previous directors, we can’t help support a fictional prequel that treats its characters like a subpar biopic. Great performances by the leads and support and the film is no easy feat had it succeeded anyway.

This week we go to deep dark places. We welcome Fall with the dread-filled action thriller Hold the Dark by a favored director and ask questions about the unconventional third act finale. We also talk about the unfortunate dreadful Venom, calling the Tom Hardy vehicle an interesting mistake with an almost unrecognizable Michelle Williams. Powered by our newest Spielberg retrospective marathon, we discuss the ups and downs of his theatrical debut, The Sugarland Express.

#60 White Boy Rick, Bleach, Duel

We have started a new marathon! We take on the works of Steven Spielberg with 12 of his films from the 70’s to today; beginning with Duel. Duel is clearly one of the best made-for-TV movies of its era. We also discuss the true story of a teenage snitch and drug kingpin from the 80’s; White Boy Rick. We also get into yet another live action film based on a famous anime, Bleach, and discover that even though it’s one of the few better ones out there, it doesn’t mean much.

#B20 Isle of Dogs (SEPTEMBER)

The only thing sadder than an isle of banished dogs would be an isle of banished stop-motion animated dogs with great voice acting by Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum and more. Wes Anderson’s latest and second animated attempted feature has proven to be a successful way for his attention to detail flourish. Luke and Oscar tackle this film and discuss not only the plot and animation but the Japanese atmosphere and comedic timing.

#59 The Nun, Searching, Borg vs McEnroe

This time around, we visiting the lopsided grave markers of Romania, sleuthing online for a missing child and watching a tennis match in 1980. Despite entertaining spinoffs and sequels from the Conjuring universe, we discuss their worst entry so far. Searching proves the new movie sub-genre to be useful and a good way to tell a tried and true story of suspense. Borg vs McEnroe is a sports biopic about two heavyweight tennis players in 1980 that has a solid ramp up but lacks creativity.

#58 Mile 22, The Happytime Murders, The Rider

We have an eclectic bath of reviews this week. We start by discussing Mark Wahlberg being stranger than usual in Mile 22 as he watches his super secret ops team get eliminated. We find out how gross muppets can be with Happytime Murders and wonder how a good movie premise can go so wrong. The Rider, on the other hand, blends reality with narrative filmmaking in a way rarely seen about a modern day cowboy struggling with life’s decision to keep him away from his dreams.

We bring back Lexi to review Red Sparrow with Oscar, discussing the merits of Jennifer Lawrence’s decisions as an actress and the plot holes of the film, not to mention that having a woman for this gender-neutralizing film is a good choice. Yes, we do hope the film had more to offer but it’s not devoid of conversation-making.

We have an eclectic trio for you today.

Ethan Hunt continues his virtuous crusade of saving the world with the first ‘actual’ sequel of the Mission Impossible franchise. The Bleeding Edge teaches us the pitfalls of mistaking innovating ideas with untested trials in the medical community. The Shop Around the Corner finishes our Alpha Classics Marathon and you’ll see why when you hear it.

#53 Incredibles 2, Pacific Rim: Uprising, Duck Soup

Even though we couldn’t find the time to visit our favorite neighbor with the documentary we talked last about, we are bringing you two unwanted sequels but one succeeds far more than the other. We also dip out toes in the 1930’s with the goofball film Duck Soup. Happy World Cup!

#B17 Phantom Thread (JUNE)

Let’s see how romantic we can’t be? Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest piece stars the great Daniel Day Lewis and equally great Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps playing in 1950’s London chic and twisting the terms of relationships. So, of course, we bring in guest host Lexi to untie the many knots created by the film.

 

Alma becomes the muse and lover of the renowned and snobby dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock, which disrupt his fastidious lifestyle with her song will.

#52 Annihilation, The Tale, Double Indemnity

This week deals in serious questions about being human, the nature of breaking down nature and how memory can deceive you. Annihilation is the replacement film we went with and serves up a lengthy discussion about the crazy sci-fi concepts introduced. The Tale is our second in a row HBO original film about the filmmakers struggle to cope with a past misunderstood. Finally, our marathon pick this week is steeped in film noir with Double Indemnity, which holds the classic dames and the killer motives.
