#129 The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Army of the Dead, Bowfinger

Double horror feature. We catch the third and unfortunately, lesser, installment of the Conjuring franchise. While an enjoyable witch-villain, it does hold a smaller candle to the previous two. Army of the Dead shows a stylish and evolving zombie-action flick that holds little in the writing but more in cool. Bowfinger is a great movie-making-movies comedy from the epic year 1999. 

 

Next Time: Made In Heights, The Reckoning, Martha Marcy May Marlene

#128 The Woman In the Window, Those Who Wish Me Dead, Children of Men

We are doing a slightly different kind of episode this week. Each of the hosts have chosen one film to review, as opposed to Luke choosing all three. His marathon pick, Children of Men (the all-too-relatable post-apocalyptic film), was pre-recorded while Ralf and Oscar each found some streaming options. The Woman in the Window goes to interesting places to be sure, but maybe the comparison to Rear Window goes on a bit much. Those Who Wish Me Dead had high hopes but were dashed through some ‘Hollywood-izing.’

#127 Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar, Promising Young Woman, Flight

This week, we delve into some heavy shit. With Promising Young Woman, we talk about the surrealistic gender differences in terms of peril and societal dysfunction of what happens to vulnerable women when men are around. With Flight, we talk about the ethics of doing something miraculous while still being held responsible for selfish actions fueled by addiction. We begin with Barb and Star however; an all-out comedy akin to an earlier decade but with snappy writing.

We travel to the past; to 2003 to discuss the film that made Charlize Theron less attractive but won an Oscar for a biopic of a serial killer. We also go underground in the 1960’s with Madame Claude and her expensive prostitution ring. Lastly, we say hi to Outerworld in Mortal Kombat and discuss whether or not this B-movie is worth the watch.

#125 The 93rd Academy Awards Nominations

It’s that time of year again where we discuss the Oscars by attempting to watch as many of the (at least major) films that have been nominated for ‘the best of the best.’  We do skip a few categories where we feel-even-less-than-usually prepared to discuss but overall go through the picks, the work and possible political reasoning behind some of these nominations. We’ll be back to regular reviews on the next show, as well as our thoughts on the awards ceremony.

#124 Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal, Match Point

It’s Luke country! His choices for movie reviews this week is a diverse trio. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is a do-over on a franchise entry people disliked. Yes, while we enjoyed this new version, we do question the need for it and especially, its running time. Operation Varsity Blues is a well-deserved take down of the established elite who try to find less-than-reputable ways in getting their children into Ivy League schools. Finally, we continue Luke’s marathon with Woody Allen’s Match Point; a tense and focused story about a man’s sexual affair that leads to surprising actions.

We’re back and in marathon mode! Remember that marathon experiment we began just before the end of 2020? We decided to come back from break with three picks from each of our marathons. Panic Room is a cool thriller with a wacky camera. Tokyo Godfathers shows great levels of humanity in animated form. 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days shows the toxic government of Romania in the 1980’s through the eyes of 2 women trying to get an abortion performed under totalitarian rule.

Apply the same layout as our top ten films of the year to television. As is tradition over the last couple of years, we bring in Matt to diversify the choices of great TV shows. While plenty of movies were sidelined by the pandemic, television seemed generally unfazed; giving us plenty of sequel seasons to big hits as well as first time seasons and some great documentaries. What did you binge in 2020?

#119 Wonder Woman 1984, Soul, The One I Love 

We begin with Oscar’s marathon about toxicity in films with the ringing of the New Year. The One I Love is a film about a toxic relationship meeting a strange set of supernatural circumstances. WW84 proves that while it would’ve made more money last year in theaters, it maybe doesn’t deserve it so much. Soul, the latest from Pixar, proves they can do no wrong with these wild quests of finding out the true nature of humanity and the reason we do what we do.

#118 Mank, Sound of Metal, The Motorcycle Diaries

Merry almost Christmas! That means that the picks this week will not be reflecting the season and instead will be reviewing three intimate stories of several shapes and sizes. We bookend the show with reviews based on actual history with historical figures. Mank takes us to old Hollywood and the screenwriter that’ll write the epic Citizen Kane. The Motorcycle Diaries, as part of Ralf’s marathon, shows the life of Che Guevara before becoming the great revolutionary. Lastly, the intimate story of Sound of Metal creates the sense of desperation and trauma when the world becomes utterly quiet.

This is the beginning of Luke’s marathon; Revisiting Tastes, where he goes back to simpler times and revisits five movies that he felt strongly about, positively and negatively, and sees where they stand today. That first title is Green Street Hooligans. Fireball is Werner Herzog’s latest doc about the fascination and changes surrounding our planet and culture. Uncle Frank has Alan Ball writing and directing a purely drama film. Set in the 70’s, it has good character work and dramatic chops.

#116 Rebecca, She Dies Tomorrow, I’m Thinking of Ending Things

It’s time for introspection. Oscar’s picks this week serve up an unhealthy dose of depression and self-reflection. The least of which is a remake of 1940’s Rebecca, which takes the story of a dead woman’s memories to the farthest point. She Dies Tomorrow challenges its viewers to watch people in disarray with the thought that they’re about to die. I’m Thinking of Ending Things is just a clusterfuck of emotions relating to either a woman looking to break up with her boyfriend or a man on the cusp of death.

We are being all-inclusive this week with the streaming service providers. Out from Prime Video is the sequel to the culture shock hit, Borat, and we discuss the merits of making this sequel this year and if the comedic impact can bear the weight of the world. On the Rocks, the latest by Sofia Coppola, is brought by Apple TV+ where we get to enjoy a charming Bill Murray helping his daughter to solve a personal crisis mystery. Bad Hair, from Hulu, is the Halloween-friendly film about a slice of black life set in the 80’s, a killer weave and an MTV-type of studio.

October 25, 2020

#114 The Trial of the Chicago 7, Black Box, The Departed

This weeks’ show has taken us down memory lane, a courtroom political drama and the nonexistent line between cops and criminals. Aaron Sorkin’s latest piece of writing hasn’t missed a step as characterizations, history and memorable one-liners soar through the air. Black Box reminds one of us of Black Mirror, and while it provides a sustainable plot, it fails to land home. We’re ending our Jack Nicholson marathon with The Departed, which always provides good fun and some crazy ideas about heroes and villains.

#113 Antebellum, Mulan, A Few Good Men

Halloween is fast approaching and with the year being what it is, we thought it was best to continue trekking though the year with new movies that are streaming-friendly, and not horror theme… except one. Antebellum is not exactly a horror movie, but it does contain plenty of horrifying aspects and possibilities for this jaded modern world. Milan as  a remake has a lot to live up to and for only one of us, was worth watching. A Few Good Men shows us the Sorkin beginnings as we enjoy the villainy and imposing figure of Jack Nicholson.

Ralf’s choices this week has brought us to Netflix this week. Beginning with a solid zombie-apocalypse entry in #Alive, we talk about the detailed differences and the use of technology that modern zombie flicks do not emphasize. The Social Dilemma brings a grand discussion about the state of tech companies and their crafty ways to use us people as products they’re selling for ad companies. Last but not least, we watch the ver beloved Batman, from Tim Burton. The real question becomes; can Luke, Oscar and Ralf separate a nostalgia favorite from a critical eye.

We also time travel once again with Bill &Ted Face the Music and wonder if the movie has too much plot or not. Lastly, the ongoing Jack Nicholson marathon has brought us to The Shining, and we only wish we had more time to devote to the Stanley Kubrick horror masterpiece.

#110 First Cow, Shirley, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Since Oscar picked the movies this week, be sure to expect out of the ordinary and not very mainstream films. We begin with First Cow, by an indie darling director, tackling capitalism and American history through the eyes of two men. Shirley, a pseudo thriller and biopic, tries to tackle a hurricane of a figure with its titular character, only to see all fail. Lastly, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is the classic mental ward film about a not-very-good man being driven down by the structures of civilized society with comedy and dramatic flairs.

#109 King of Staten Island, Irresistible, Chinatown

We’re dipping into films only or mainly available on VOD to rent or to buy. We discuss the latest by Judd Apatow, King of Staten Island, which is a story about a man in arrested development and emotional issues finally learns something about moving on. Irresistible is the Jon Stewart creation that bits American campaign and election processes as well as the hypocrisies within the two party system through the lens of a small town mayoral race. Lastly, as part of our Jack Nicholson marathon, we discuss Chinatown, the noir LA masterpiece by Roman Polanski.

#108 7500, Radioactive, Five Easy Pieces

This week, we discuss Prime original flicks. Beginning with 7500, a film about terrorism via hijacking of a commercial German flight through the perspective of the copilot. Unfortunately, it works mildly as a thriller and has little if anything to say about the heavy topic of its premise. Next is Radioactive; a biopic of Marie Curie as she discovers the elements that would eventually kill her. Five Easy Pieces marks the first of our latest marathon that focuses on the works of Jack Nicholson as we chronologically hit up seven films.

We’re covering parts of the globe with a diverse selection of actors, genres, languages and directors. First, we discuss the graphic novel adaptation of The Old Guard; an action flick about a group of immortals trying to survive humanity as they try to save it. Next, we discuss the Polish runaway sensation and 5 Shades of Grey-in -nature, 365 Days, which proves that further attempts at this kind of movie should be extinguished. Lastly, we talk Cuban history on US soil through the perspective of loyal soldiers infiltrating traitors out to overthrow Castro.

#106 Da 5 Bloods, Nobody Knows I’m Here, Vertigo

This week, we have three awesome and personal stories to review. The first is the humanly-flawed Vietnam War centered Spike Lee joint, Da 5 Bloods, which releases during an important and tumultuous time. Nobody Knows I’m Here is a small Chilean film about a traumatized solitary person facing his past. The third is the classic Vertigo by Hitchcock where we see yet again, the clever and nuanced storytelling led by James Stewart and Kim Novak.

#105 Seberg, The Vast of Night, Lawrence of Arabia

A bio pic of a dark time in FBI’s history and part of the constant dark things of the US government. Sober tells the story of civil rights via an actress and her experiences being monitored against her will and the law. The Vast of Night is one of the few great movies that deal with aliens. It is a story told almost in real time about two people discovering a single on the radio waves that leads down supernatural paths. Last, but not least, we take a stab at the great Lawrence of Arabia; ac classic very much revered. We discuss the sand, politics and acting. Check it out.

#104 Monster Party, Noroi: The Curse, M

It’s an all-horror film fest. This week, we focus on a certain horror streaming service; Shudder. Exclusive on there are Monster Party and Noroi: The Curse. The former is a rather disappointing indie flick with a promising premise. The latter is a mockumentary with a rocky start but compelling suspense and freaky story. As part of our ongoing marathon, we delve into the classic M, from 1931. We liked how the movie holds up nearly 90 years later in the realm of serial killer films.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

#93 The Best Films of 2019

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.

#B33 Captain Marvel

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.

#92 Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker, Queen & Slim, Entrapment vs The Thomas Crown Affair

This will be the last official show for the year! It is also the last entry of our newest marathon for the year. 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.

#B32 Anna

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.

#B31 Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

#B31 Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

#B31 Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

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.

Our little marathon continues with the battle of the airplanes. We compare and contrast the twin films Air Force One and Executive Decision to see who the winner in quality and standing in their genres. 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. Happy Thanksgiving!

#89 Doctor Sleep, The Lighthouse, Olympus Has Fallen vs White House Down

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

#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.
