Episode #51: White Boy Rick

Episode #51: White Boy Rick

September 27, 2018

Welcome back everyone!  Today your hosts Mysterious Mike and incredible Matt talk about Matthew McConaughey’s latest based on a true story film White Boy Rick.  There is not a ton to say about this film without spoiling it but we will always do our best to warn you when he hit that discussion area.  Topics also include crazy family life, drug addiction, the film Gold, and a controversial topic if all drugs should just be legal in the United States.  Lastly they remind you that the first Reel Film Nerds Harvest Horror Fest kicks off in one week!!!  Are you excited, we are!!!!

Mike and Matt both enjoyed this film but it is not a must see.  What makes this movie great is the acting and the incredible true story.  The editing was just flat out strange and the choices the director made on what to show you versus tell you bothered both of your hosts.  Mike gives this film 3 out of 5 Reels while Matt is a little more lenient with 3.5 out of 5 Reels. The hosts both agree White Boy Rick is worth a watch just for the story but wait until it is released on a streaming service or at Red Box.  Thank you for continued support and we will chat at you on Tuesday with a brand new movie review of Assassination Nation.

Episode #50: Legacy – Iron Man

September 25, 2018

Welcome to our super special 50th episode spectacular!!!  In celebration of making it 50 podcasts we broke form a little.  Today’s review is a Legacy cast not your typical new movie review, that will be on Thursday.  We go all the way to the beginning where the now infamous Marvel Cinematic Universe started the original Iron Man.  The second half of the pod the boys talk a bit about their favorite films they reviewed and some of their favorite moments of recording the pod together.  Matt reminisces about co-founder and first co-host of the show Seth Marquardt.  Lastly the guys talk about a possible giveaway for the next milestone, episode 100 or the podcast 1-year anniversary, whichever comes first. 

Mysterious Mike and Matt both love this movie.  It is a great story, well written, and well-acted.  They both give the original Iron Man directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr. 4.5 out of 5 Reels.     

Remember to tune in this Thursday when the guys review Matthew McConaughey’s latest film White Boy Rick.  Don’t forget the first Reel Film Nerds Harvest Horror Fest kicks off next week with one of Kevin Smith’s first horror films Tusk.

Episode #49: Legacy – Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

Episode #49: Legacy – Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

September 20, 2018

Good day everyone and welcome to yet another Reel Film Nerds podcast.  Yep we aren’t going away that easy!  Today Matt and Mike continue to gear up for their first Harvest Horror Fest with a Legacy cast of Tucker & Dale vs. Evil.  The guys try to tell some jokes, but they fail miserably.  Staying on topic alludes your hosts too.  Matt is probably the biggest problem when it comes to staying on topic, sorry everyone.  Discussion includes Avengers 4, side boob, PBR, the new Captain Marvel trailer, Fargo, woodchippers, and hillbilly hog!  What a fun and odd conversation.   

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a fun interesting take on the horror genre or comedy genre?  Let’s just go with both.  The writing is excellent, the acting is great, and the makeup/special effects are spot on.  Mike gives the film a little above average score of 3.5 out of 5 Reels.  Matt who is much better at rating movies (according to him) and not nearly as harsh as Mike gives it 4 out of 5 Reels.

Episode 50 is next!  Can you believe it, we can’t.  We thought for sure Mike would get mad at Matt and quit after only a few episodes, but he didn’t!  Thanks, Mysterious Mike!  What do the guys have in store, we have no idea, probably just more random off topic talk and maybe a movie review?  Download next Tuesday’s episode to find out.  Thanks again for listening and we will see you next week.

Episode#48: The Predator

Episode#48: The Predator

September 18, 2018

Welcome boys and girls to yet another podcast!!!  Today Mike and Matt talk about a giant mess of a movie, The Predator directed by Shane Black.  The guys stay fairly on topic for this one and basically rip this film apart.  This movie is just flat out all over the place.  Matt talks a bit about the many reshoots and controversies surrounding this movie while Mike just listens.  He was really tired so we will let it slide this time.  The guys also discuss the original Predator from 1987 and how much better it is, (if you want to hear more go back and listen to our Legacy cast on it Episode #21) sleep or lack of, the Android operating system, the Terminator, and lastly K2SO from Rogue One.

Matt and Mike had a ton of issues with this film but it was still fun.  If you are not a diehard Predator fan like they are wait until this one comes out on Netflix or Redbox.  It is just all over the place with tons of plot holes and parts of the film that are just flat out strange.  We have that rare occurrence when the guys agree on a rating both Mike and Matt give The Predator 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

Like always thank you listening and spreading the word about our podcast to help us grow!  Coming up on Thursday the guys review a fun horror film? comedy? both?  Who knows we will all find out when the guys discuss and review Tucker & Dale vs Evil.  Talk at you then!

Episode #47: Legacy – Ghostbusters (1984)

September 13, 2018

Hey kids and welcome to your last Reel Film Nerds pod of the week!  We have an incredible Legacy cast for you today!  It is a bit long but it is totally worth the extra 20 minutes or so.  The one the only, well should be the only, Ghostbusters!  Matt cannot say enough about this movie.  It is one of his favorites, definitely top 5.  Mysterious Mike also really likes this film from start to finish!  The guys talk a ton about Ghostbusters trivia, John Candy, John Belushi, the not so great 2016 remake, and a little off topic The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon TV shows.  Lastly the guys discuss what’s coming up in October the first ever Reel Film Nerds Harvest Horror Fest!   

Mike and Matt both love Ghostbusters more than words can express, well at least Matt does.  He gives us his first perfect score!  It only took 47 episodes, but he has done it Matt gives Ghostbusters a perfect 5 out of 5 Reels!  Mike loves this film but for some reason is not as awesome as Matt and only gives it 4.5 out of 5 Reels.  Seriously Mike?  WTF?  Wait is that still a thing?  I don’t care I am using it!

Next Tuesday the guys talk about a controversial film well it is controversial now, The Predator.  They will try to explain all the controversy surrounding it and while Edward James Olmos was cut completely out!  For Tuesday the guys continue their drive towards Harvest Horror Fest with a Legacy cast of the comedy horror film Tucker and Dale vs Evil.  Don’t forget episode 50th is nipping at our heals and we still are looking for some suggestions so email us!  Should we do a neat review, give something away, or just not have a 50 episode and skip straight to 51?  Thanks again for listening to us and chat at you Tuesday!

Episode #46: Peppermint

Episode #46: Peppermint

September 11, 2018

Hello, hello, hello, and welcome to your first Reel Film Nerds pod of the week!  Today your host’s Matt and Mike discuss Jennifer Garner’s return to the silver screen, PeppermintPeppermint is your classic revenge story littered with tons of action scenes.  Your hosts stick to the review at hand for the most part.  Mike actually went off on a pretty solid tangent about Liam Neeson and his legacy of Taken films.  Amazing, it was not Matt for once!  Of course, he brought up Star Wars again but just for a little bit.  Mike and Matt also discuss other revenge films they really enjoy like Man on Fire.  For those of you looking for a discussion on Moviepass sorry.  Maybe Mike will get Matt going on the next pod.

Mike and Matt both were not super impressed with this movie, but they did not think it was terrible either.  It was just an average film.  The acting was decent, the action was well done, the story is not great and has been repeated throughout cinema many times over, but it is not horrible either.  Mike gives Peppermint 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt enjoyed the film as well but did have some issues with it especially how they ended it.  He gives it 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

Coming up on Thursday is an incredible Legacy cast, Ghostbusters!!!  No not the 2016 remake the original from 1984!  Matt is super excited to talk about it and so is Mike.  It is going to be a fun one.  Thanks for listening and chat at you then!

Episode #45: Legacy – Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Episode #45: Legacy – Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

September 6, 2018

Hi everybody and welcome to the Reel Film Nerds latest pod.  Today the guys discuss a fun and crazy Legacy Cast, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro.  The guys talk about journalism, Hunter S. Thompson, Tobey Maguire, and lots of trivia about the film.  Don’t worry they get off topic too.  Mike just keeps pushing a Moviepass discussion and Matt might have finally given up the good fight and dropped his subscription.    

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a wild film with an insane and drug riddled premise.  The acting is amazing, the sets are fantastic, and it is shot beautifully.  The guys once again agreed on a rating.  Matt and Mike both give Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas 4 out of 5 Reels.  What do you think, is Matt really as dark as he sounds and should he stop reading Marvel Comics and start reading the dark and gritty world of DC?  Wait hold on we talk about movies here, so what if he is dark? 

Next Tuesday the guys will be talking about Jennifer Garner’s action revenge thriller Peppermint.  It is nice to see her getting work again outside of the Capital One commercials!  Lastly don’t forget we are still looking for suggestions for Episode #50 which is coming up SUPER fast.  Email us your thoughts and suggestions or just email us to say hello.  Chat at you next week!

Episode #44: Operation Finale

Episode #44: Operation Finale

September 4, 2018

Hello fellow movie nerds and welcome to another incredible episode of the Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Today we talk about a very serious and incredible drama based on a true story, Operation Finale starring Sir Ben Kinglsey and Oscar Isaac.  The film is based on the hunting down and capture of escaped Holocaust mastermind Adolph Eichmann.  Your hosts do stray off topic a bit especially Matt like always but they do their best to steer the review back on course.  The guys talk about why history is important, college, and World War 2 based movies The Darkest Hour and Dunkirk.  This is one of the more serious podcasts the guys have done but it is a very serious film on an incredible true story.

Mike and Matt both loved this movie and highly recommend you see it even if you can’t make it to the local movie theater and have to watch it later when it comes out on Blu-ray or Netflix.  It is incredibly impactful and well acted by the majority of the cast, sorry Nick Kroll you sucked.  Matt and Mike both give the film 4 out of 5 Reels.

This Thursday Matt and Mike review a film that is basically the exact opposite of Operation Finale.  The hosts review a cult classic drug riddle story based around the book and life of famed journalist Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro.  Talk at you Thursday.  Don’t forget we are still looking for suggestions for Episode #50 which is coming up real fast.  Email us your thoughts on what we should do for this upcoming milestone episode.
