Episode #43: The Happytime Murders

August 30, 2018

Hey kids and welcome to our podcast about them moving pictures called movies!  If you are a kid you probably should stop reading this now, this movie might have puppets in it but it is not for you!  Today Mysterious Mike and Awesome Matt review Jenny McCarthy’s cousin (no seriously they are cousins!!), Melissa McCarthy’s, latest film The Happytime Murders!  The guys do get off topic a bit on this one discussing Tesla’s, the Matrix, Elon Musk, and most importantly the Reel Film Nerd’s 50th Episode! 

Mike loved the murder mystery set in a world where humans and puppets co-exist.  There were a few scenes he loved more than others but genuinely enjoyed this film.  He gives The Happytime Murders 3 out of 5 Reels.  The Awesome Matt did not like this movie as much as Mike in fact he did not like it at all well there were a few really funny scenes. Maybe the trailer ruined it for him.  Matt gives The Happytime Murders 2 our 5 Reels.

What do you want Matt and Mike to do for their first milestone, Episode 50?  Email us at Nerds@ReelFilmNerds.com and let us know your thoughts.  Do you want to win a Blu-ray?  Maybe they just review a really cool fun legacy movie.  Let us know what you want to hear.  On the docket for next week the boys will review Operation Finale, a true story based on the hunt for the Nazi officer who masterminded the Holocaust.  Chat at you next Tuesday.

Episode #42: Mile 22

Episode #42: Mile 22

August 28, 2018

Hi everybody! Today your hosts review Marky Mark’s latest action thriller Mile 22.  It is a solid action film with a bad and over used storyline.  The biggest shining light is Iko Uwais’ martial arts stunts.  It is very reminiscent of the older martial arts films and is just a joy to watch.  The guys pretty much stay on topic except Mike does bring up Moviepass and surprise, Matt actually used it to see Mile 22!  YEAH!!!  Using a service, he has paid for is a great thing.       

For the most part Mysterious Mike enjoyed the film.  The story was not great, but he loved the action sequences and his boy Mark Wahlberg.  He gives Mile 22 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt was not a fan of this film.  He did enjoy the acting especially by his sweetheart Lauren Cohan (what is wrong with this guy does he love every girl he sees on the big screen, man he needs a girlfriend!) and thought Iko Uwais was amazing!  He was disappointed that John Malkovich did not have a bigger role and spent the entire movie talking into a microphone.  He gives it 2 out of 5 Reels.

Episode #41: Legacy – Clerks

Episode #41: Legacy – Clerks

August 23, 2018

So Mike slacked off this week and did not do his homework so we will not be reviewing Mile 22, yet.  He only made it to BlacKkKlansman.  Matt did his homework so for once it is not his fault!  Instead we bring you an incredible Legacy cast indie film that launched Kevin Smith’s career into the stratosphere, Clerks.  As you already know if you are still listening to our podcast after 40 episodes we get off topic a lot.  Here is the short list of things we talk about today.  Russell Crowe’s codpiece from Cinderella Man, Mike’s high school nickname, the acceptance of nerd culture, Blockbuster, Sprouts grocery stores (seriously), Star Wars, of course, and lastly the Reel Film Nerds upcoming October horror movie fest!  Sit back relax crack open your favorite brew and enjoy the show unless you are at work then just get back to work you slacker!

Matt loves Clerks a ton.  It has incredible writing and dialogue with solid cinematography but really rough acting.  Hey it is an indie and Kevin Smith basically used all of his friends and family as actors.  They did a bang up job though.  He gives Clerks 4.5 out of 5 Reels.  Mike loves Clerks as well but not as much as Matt.  Maybe it is the high school nickname he earned related to this film or maybe he is just harsh.  Mike gives Clerks a respectable 4 out of 5 Reels. 

Stay tuned for next week’s episodes when we review Mark Wahlbergs latest action flick Mile 22 (maybe?) and the raunchy yet hilarious puppet caper The Happy Time Murders starring Melissa McCarthy.  Thanks for listening and chat at you Tuesday!

Episode #40: BlacKkKlansman

Episode #40: BlacKkKlansman

August 21, 2018

Welcome listeners new and old to the Reel Film Nerds Podcast!  Today your hosts Matt Hinshaw and Mysterious Mike get political while reviewing Spike Lee’s latest joint BlacKkKlansman.  They really tried to keep politics out but it is very difficult with a film like this.  Was Mike able to keep the Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-ins going?  Heck ya he was, this makes 32 movies Mike has tied to the MCU.  If you are wondering why it is only 32 out of 40 well Mike did not join the show until Episode #4: Black Panther, we have reviewed 3 MCU films, and lastly Mike did not appear on two episodes (Episode #9 and Episode #12).  I know more information then you care to know but it is pretty cool that we are proving our theory.    

Mike and Matt both enjoyed this film and recommend you see it if it’s available near you.  It is not a must for a movie theater, but it is worth your time if it is.  Adam Driver and John David Washington were excellent along with the fascinating true story.  The guys thought there were some political scenes and writing Spike Lee added to the film that were not needed.  This film is already impactful enough in today’s climate without them.  Mike gives BlacKkKlansman a respectable 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt thought it earned higher marks then that even though there were parts of the film he did not think were necessary.  He gives BlacKkKlansman a 4 out of 5 Reels. 

Thank you for liking, subscribing, rating, reviewing, and telling your friends about our podcast.  The guys will be back with Episode #41 on Thursday for another Legacy cast, the infamous film that launched the career of Kevin Smith, Clerks.  Chat at you then.

Episode #39: Tributary - Mute

Episode #39: Tributary - Mute

August 16, 2018

Welcome back to the unofficial Chipotle podcast!  Today your two hosts bust out with their second Tributary cast the Netflix original movie Mute.  This futuristic dystopian Sci-Fi thriller is very reminiscent of Blade Runner in scope and feel; it is not Blade Runner though.  The guys try something new trying to talk about the film without spoiling it for the first half of the pod and let loose and spoil everything for the second half.  We warn you many times so if you don’t want to hear it you can stop accordingly.  Do you like the new format?  Mike again brings up MoviePass and its impending demise.  The guys request some hate mail and hate comments but doubt they will get any.  Go ahead send us some especially to Mysterious Mike and Mike@ReelFilmNerds.com.  Lastly RFN can now be found on Spotify!!  There is no excuse not to subscribe!

Mute was a confusing badly written but beautifully filmed movie that you can probably skip unless you really need something to watch or you love Paul Rudd.  Mike gives it 2 out of 5 Reels.  Matt as always is more generous why, who knows maybe he is drunk again, he gives Mute 3 out of 5 Reels.  Thanks for listening and chat at you on Tuesday!

Episode #38: The Meg

Episode #38: The Meg

August 14, 2018

Welcome back fellow film nerds!  Today Matt and Mike review a giant piece of crap that they do not understand why it is doing so well at the box office, The Meg.  Things get off the rails fast! The guys start talking about baby names, online gaming in the early 90’s, and of course MoviePass. Mike mostly wanted to see if Matt had finally cancelled his subscription, nope!  Back on topic, did The Meg get such amazing box office numbers over opening weekend because it was rated PG-13 instead of R and why the hell is Ruby Rose’s hair constantly wet in this movie for no reason?  The guys finish the review by getting serious a bit about animals and their senseless killing such as sharks to make only shark fin soup.  They do not go too in depth but the boys do voice their thoughts on the subject.

The Meg was bad, really really bad, and the guys agree you should not waste your money on it.  Matt was too kind like always and gave it 2.5 out of 5 Reels.  Mike handed out the lowest rating in Reel Film Nerds history with a 1 out of 5 Reels.  Seriously don’t see this movie but do listen to the podcast.  It is a good one even with all the off topic nonsense!  Make sure check back on Thursday for the guys second Tributary cast for the Netflix Original Movie starring Paul Rudd, Mute.

Episode #37: Legacy – Universal Soldier

Episode #37: Legacy – Universal Soldier

August 9, 2018

Hello boys and girls and welcome to another Legacy cast!  Today your hosts Mysterious Mike and Matt Hinshaw talk about a beloved childhood action film Universal Soldier.  The guys loved this movie a ton when they were kids, today in their 30’s not so much.  They also discuss the many northern Arizona locations it was filmed at and why the many more recent films based in AZ are not filmed there but in New Mexico.  Matt gets lost in the internet while researching an aircraft featured in the film called the Super Guppy.  Lesson learned don’t pod and internet!  There is lots of fun Universal Soldier trivia discussed by both hosts and even the discovery of multiple sequels neither of them knew existed.  This is a Legacy Cast for the ages!   

Matt and Mike both were disappointed re-watching this film.  It does not stand the test of time.  The acting is very bad and the movie comes across as flat out cheesy.  The guys both give Universal Soldier 2 Reels out of 5.  Next week the guys will be reviewing the summer blockbuster shark movie The Meg and their second Tributary Cast the Netflix Original movie Mute.  Chat with you next week!

Episode #36: The Spy Who Dumped Me

Episode #36: The Spy Who Dumped Me

August 7, 2018

Welcome film buffs to another incredible amazing stupendous episode of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast!  I spy with my little eye our latest review, The Spy Who Dumped Me.  A great action filled comedic buddy film!  Matt and Mike were surprised at how much they liked this film.  Mike does it again and throws gasoline on the MoviePass fire really getting Matt going since he had to pay to see this movie. The guys then touch a bit on the recent firing of James Gunn by Disney over really old tweets and they agree that it is a bad move.  Of course this opens the door for Matt to talk about Star Wars specifically can’t Solo: A Star Wars Story and its flop.  They continue off topic for a bit discussing Ron Howard and how many amazing movies he has directed.

The Spy Who Dumped Me is a really fun slap sticky comedy that is definitely worth a watch.  Mila Kunis did a fantastic job and Matt would not mind her becoming one of his future ex-wives.  Kate McKinnon rained her acting in a bit and really delivered a superb performance.  Matt gives The Spy Who Dumped Me 3.5 out of 5 Reels.  Mike enjoyed the film even more then Matt if you can believe it!  He rarely best’s Matt’s rating but he did!  He gives it a 4 out of 5 Reels!  This buddy movie was fun and a little raunchy which was fine with us.

Episode #35: Tributary - Anon

Episode #35: Tributary - Anon

August 2, 2018

Welcome listeners new and old (not physically) to our first Tributary cast!  A Tributary cast is a review of a movie only available on a streaming service such as Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Prime, etc. This week Matt and Mike review a Netflix original Sci-Fi thriller Anon.  It is a fun trippy technology filled look into a dystopian future where privacy flat out doesn’t exist.  The guys dive deep on this topic, they both love tech but also see the coming storm and the end of privacy or what little we have left.  They also discuss augmented reality versus virtual reality and how close they are to becoming everyday tech.  Mike gets Matt going again about the death of MoviePass especially with their developments, price changes, and lack of blockbuster films new releases.  Things continue off topic for a bit with chat about TCL televisions, Roku vs Apple TV vs Fire Stick, and what is the best device to stream movies on.  Last but not least they guys discuss their new partnership with Prescott Valley based news organization SignalsAZ.com and how you can where you can find our podcast on their site. 

Anon is a must-see thriller if you are into detective movies and technology.  Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried do a fantastic job. The sets are dark and gritty and the graphic overlays are just amazing!  Matt loved this movie he gives it 4 out of 5 Reels.  Mike enjoyed the film as well but like always he is more critical then Matt.  He gives Anon 3.5 out of 5 Reels.
