We discuss Episode 8, Rian Johnson's highly controversial entry into Star Wars canon, that is if the fans don't succeed in having The Last Jedi removed... is it good, is it bad, is it somewhere in between?...
35 years after Ridley Scott's masterpiece comes Denis Villeneuve's sequel to the immortal BLADE RUNNER. Although a box office disappointment, BLADE RUNNER 2049 is a visual work of art and a wet dream for cinema lovers. But the real question everyone is asking: is Deckard a replicant???
For some, BLADE RUNNER is the best film of the 80s. For some, it's the best sci-fi ever made. For others, it's the best movie ever made: period. Why is this rather obscure 1982 neo-noir such a cult classic? And why does it rightfully take a spot in the annals of film history? Listen to find out!
Jordan Peele's GET OUT is making waves. It's proving that a film with a black lead, from a black writer/director, can be a blockbuster hit, something previously thought to be unlikely. Not only is making tons of money, it seems to be a unanimous hit with audiences. But we're not so sure. Is it really as good as it's hype?
After 17 years as Wolverine, Hugh Jackman unleashes his claws for the last time, and unlike anything you've ever seen in an X-men film. James Mangold's action-packed, contemplative, and beautiful film is both a crowd pleaser and a bonafide hit, and the panel doesn't disagree.
Due to popular demand, we discuss ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story!
We all know Paul Jensen is an absolute super fan. But what did his wife Tanya think of the film? Did Ian like it as much as he liked The Force Awakens. And what put Nick in such a daze that he could barely remember a detail of the film after viewing it?
Mel Gibson's return to Hollywood, although you would be mistaken for thinking this is a studio picture. Is disgraced Gibson's comeback all its cracked up to be? Well, the panel can't agree, yet the film has multiple Oscar nominations... Will it walk away with any gold at Sunday's 89th Academy Awards? Gibson has two Oscars to his name already... and the Academy loves a comeback...
Without a doubt, the most unlikely film of the year: both in it's heartbreaking subject matter, as well as it's unlikely journey from concept to creation. The other unlikely factor: the amount of humour in the dark events of this story. Kennether Lonergan's film (he wrote and directed) has six Academy Award nominations. The question is, does the film contain a single bad moment? The answer to this, we all agree on.
The gang dives into the most important film of the year: Moonlight, writted and directed by Barry Jenkins, his first major feature. Nominated for eight Oscars, does this film run the risk of walking away empty handed at the 89th Academy Awards?
