Now that the whole gang has seen Godzilla vs. Kong, they discuss the MonsterVerse saga so far, including Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and the new hit film. It’s a flawed but fun bunch of movies, with some arresting visuals and a sense of scope. But where are the characters? Listen in and see if we found any.
Ron, Steve, and John enter this episode with no plan but along the way they cover some exciting Knives Out news; share some quick non-spoiler-y thoughts on this week’s big franchise release, Godzilla vs Kong; and dig into Operation Varsity Blues, the new doc about the college admissions scandal.
Ronald, Steve, and John bookend their SXSW coverage with a discussion of more films they've seen at the fest, as well as thoughts on the overall online attendance experience. Then they turn their attention to a brand-new genre-hopping movie, Happily, about a seemingly perfect couple and their circle of friends.
It’s another jam-packed episode as the guys tackle the recently announced Oscar nominations, run down their experiences thus far with the SXSW Online Film Festival, and finally get to settle the matter of the fabled "Snyder Cut” of Justice League.
Ron, Steve, and John are back with another chat about some brand new films. For starters, they look at Tom Holland and the Russo Brothers’s first collaboration outside the MCU, Cherry; then they take on Soleil Moon Frye’s documentary about growing up famous (constructed from her personal home videos); and finally they’re all knocked flat by the searing new psychological drama The Father, starring Anthony Hopkins in one of his most emotionally affecting performances. It’s a lot! So let’s get started.
This time Ron, Steve, and John barge in the door ready to discuss a long-awaited comedy sequel, a Netflix crime doc series, a coming-of-age sports tale, and a video game-inspired action flick. No time for small-talk! Except, uh, for all the small-talk.
Ron, Steve, and John begin their long-promised rewatch of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series, starting with the first two installments, 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and 1985’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. One of these films is a classic; the other has the word “revenge” in the title. Listen to find out which is which!
Ron, Steve, and John are here with thoughts on two brand new movies you can watch today! They couldn’t be more different: the propulsive and engrossing tale of Black Panther Fred Hampton’s final days, Judas and the Black Messiah; and the silly, lumpy, and lighter-than-air buddy comedy, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar. Listen in to find out which one features Kristen Wiig with helmet hair.
