Episode #74: Legacy - Die Hard

December 25, 2018

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!  We hope you opened lots of presents this morning and got everything you ever wanted.  Your hosts Matt and Mysterious Mike sure as hell didn’t.  Back on topic today in honor of Christmas we review one of Mike’s favorite Christmas movies of all time, Die Hard.  The guys talk about their first R rated movies, the hot mess that is Skyscraper, and their family Christmas get together's.  Grab a cool glass of eggnog and enjoy our review of Die Hard!

Die Hard is one of the many great 1980’s action films in cinematic history.  The action is fantastic, the sets look incredible, and Bruce Willis is the every-man action hero guys want to be and women want to be with.  I think this goes without saying but Mysterious Mike loves this movie with all his heart.  He awards it his second perfect score in RFN history with 5 out of 5 Reels.  Matt really likes Die Hard a lot too but re-watching it definitely does not stand the test of time as well as it should.  He gives Die Hard a very good rating of 4.5 out of 5 Reels.

Thanks everyone for joining us for this super special Die Hard Christmas episode of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast.  We will not have an episode on Thursday thanks to your hosts busy holiday schedules.  They will return with the two films they promised to review this week, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Welcome to Marwen with maybe even more reviews if they have the time to chat this weekend.

Episode #73: Mortal Engines

Episode #73: Mortal Engines

December 20, 2018

Merry almost Christmas everyone!  Today we have a review of a movie you should never see, Mortal Engines.  The guys don’t mess around and just get right into it with this review, this is a bad movie.  Topics today included the Mars TV show, Steve Carell, and Mike taking notes again.

Mortal Engines is just a terrible movie.  The only redeeming part is the visual effects and the first 30 minutes that actually has a predator city chasing down another city.  Seriously that’s it in a movie based on predator cities one damn chase scene!  There is no character development at all.  The script poorly written, it comes off as a third movie in a trilogy when it’s the start of a new franchise?  Mortal Engines also rips off so many sci-fi and fantasy films including Star Wars that we lost count.  Mike flat out blasted this movie.  He really tore it apart more than usual.  He graciously gives Mortal Engines ½ a Reel out of 5.  Matt was very disappointed by this film.  He had very high hopes for it because it appears to be a very cool and fun world to tell stories in.  This first attempt failed miserably though.  He gives the film a more lenient score with 1.5 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys keep the reviews coming!  They are both out watching as many of the new films hitting the theaters as possible.  Reviews next week include the critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen but they might toss in a few quick reviews to let you know what to see over your holiday break.  Chat with all of you next week and we hope you get lots of awesome movies for Christmas!

Episode #72: The Mule (2018)

Episode #72: The Mule (2018)

December 18, 2018

Morning everyone and welcome to another episode of the Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Winter Movie-pocalypse 2018 is upon us and your hosts start it out with Clint Eastwood’s latest masterwork The Mule (2018).  Mysterious Mike and Mean Matt do get off topic a bit in this pod, but it is hard to talk about Clint Eastwood and not about Westerns.  Topics today include That’s What She Said, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Deadwood.

The Mule (2018) is another stellar film from one of our acting and directing greats.  The casting is spot on, the story is incredible, and Clint Eastwood’s performance is one for the books.  Mike loved The Mule (2018) and thinks everyone should watch it but seeing it in the theater is not a must.  Matt agrees it was an incredible film, but he compares it to some of Eastwood’s other great films and feels it falls a tiny bit short of them.  They both award The Mule (2018) with 4 out of 5 Reels.             

This Thursday the guys continue Winter Movie-pocalypse 2018 with another new podcast review of a film that was released this past weekend, Mortal Engines.  Spoiler Alert for the podcast and the movie, it is crap!  Seriously don’t see this film but do listen to our podcast.  Mike comes out of his shell a bit and just tears this movie apart.  Chat with you on Thursday!

Episode #71: Legacy - Fred Claus

Episode #71: Legacy - Fred Claus

December 13, 2018

Welcome fellow movie lovers to another exciting installment of the Real Film Nerds Podcast.  I am not going to beat around the bush on this one.  We started to talk about our latest film Fred Claus, but it quickly turned into a discussion about Kevin Spacey and if we should be watching the films he stars in.  It is a fascinating discussion about art and film that is worth listening too.  Fred Claus just took a back seat for a while, a long while.  The guys also discuss how many movies a year does it take to call yourself a reviewer, its not as many as you would guess. 

Fred Claus is basically the Christmas movie Matt would make but without the happy ending.  This movie can be very dark and funny at the same time.  The cast is fantastic and the acting is pretty solid too.  Mike does not hate Fred Claus but it is nothing special to him either.  He gives it 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt likes the film quite a bit especially the story.  He gives Fred Claus 4 out of 5 Reels.

Movie-pocalypse starts this Friday!  The guys are going to try to see as many movies they can and tell you if they are worth spending your hard-earned money on.  It will be very difficult to have individual podcasts for each film so keep your ears out for possible podcast combos.  We will return on Tuesday with a fresh new dose of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast!

Episode #70: Legacy - Unsane

Episode #70: Legacy - Unsane

December 11, 2018

Hello there and welcome another new RFN podcast.  We can’t quit you!  Today our hosts review a film from earlier this year that was not in the theaters long, Unsane.  Today’s review was requested from one of our faithful listeners, Patrick!  Thanks, Pat, for your support and keep listening and requesting.  Mysterious Mike and Matt stay on point for once with this movie.  Extracurricular topics include iPhones, The Girl in the Spider’s Web book and movie, and the importance of story in a film.

Unsane is a phycological thriller with great acting, an amazing story, and believe it or not the film was shot on a damn iPhone!  This one never lets up and constantly has you questioning who is the sane and who is not until the very end of the movie.  Matt really enjoyed this film but had a few little complaints here and there but nothing major.  He gives it 3.5 out of 5 Reels.  Mike too really enjoyed this film but is almost always harsher than Matt when it comes to his ratings.  He gives Unsane 3 Reels out of 5.  Basically, they both agree this is a must-see film especially if you have Amazon Prime where you can currently stream it.

Thursday the guys try to review Fred Clause which quickly turns into a discussion about Christmas movies and the Kevin Spacey controversy.  It is a very thought-provoking discussion, but the movie review gets overlooked at times.  Take a listen you will enjoy it, we did.  Chat with you on Thursday.

Episode #69: Legacy - Hackers

Episode #69: Legacy - Hackers

December 6, 2018

Wow do we have a special podcast for you today, well it’s special to Mysterious Mike and Amazing Matt.  Today your two hosts discuss a film that basically changed their lives, Hackers.  This film helped fuel them to the careers they now have and their deep passions for technology.  The gents do talk about the movie but not as much as they should have.  The talk mainly focuses on how Hackers helped influence Mike’s decision to go into computer programming, public pay phones, and online gaming over dial up, yes you read that right youngsters dial up online gaming!

Hackers is an amazing movie, Matt and Mike are biased as hell though.  When you watch it today with all our technological advances it comes off extremely cheesy.  It’s a 90’s movie through and through from the rollerblades, to the EDM soundtrack, to the chain wallets.  If you grew up in the 90’s like your hosts did this movie will take you back there. Just a friendly reminder that your hosts are super biased in favor of this film, they love it to death!  Mike and Matt give Hackers 4 out of 5 Reels.  Their freshman high school selves would have given it 5 out of 5 Reels in the 90’s but it’s not the 90’s anymore.    

Thanks for tuning in for an amazing Legacy Cast of Hackers.  Your hosts really had a blast recording it even if you don’t like listening to it.  Please do us a favor and tell your friends about the RFN podcast.  Don’t forget to subscribe and listen to our sister podcasts Rogues Radio, Code 3 Podcast, The Blue Milk Podcast, and The Mile High Show.  We return next week with two more movie reviews and one will be a Christmas movie.  Tis the season, right?  Have an amazing weekend and we will yack at ya on Tuesday.

Episode #68: Ralph Breaks the Internet

Episode #68: Ralph Breaks the Internet

December 4, 2018

Howdy friends and welcome back to another amazing movie review by your two blabbermouths Mysterious Mike and Annoying Matt.  Today your hosts discuss Disney’s latest animated feature Ralph Breaks the Internet.  Topics this episode include Matt being a loner, relationship sacrifices, Star Wars, and the millions of movies coming to theaters in December.

Ralph Breaks the Internet is a very fun entertaining movie that is probably not the best for kids.  There are tons of jokes and internet references that might be over most kids’ heads.  The animation is stellar as always and the voice acting is just as good.  There were some parts of the story that could have been left out though.  They were just not needed and made the film longer than it needed to be.  Matt enjoyed Ralph Breaks the Internet but felt it was just average.  There were some amazing parts but overall this movie was nothing special to him.  He gives it 3 out of 5 Reels.  Mike also enjoyed the film but thought it could have been better too.  He loved the many Internet references and the ripping of Disney.  He also gives the movie a respectable 3 out of 5 Reels.

Thanks for tuning in for another epic sode of the Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Do us a favor and tell your friends and spread the love!  Don’t forget to subscribe and listen to our sister podcasts Rogues Radio, Code 3 Podcast, The Blue Milk Podcast, and The Mile High Show.  We will return Thursday morning with a new review of a film that greatly impacted your two hosts lives, Hackers.  They do talk about the film on Thursday but not much.  It is mainly discussion about tech and their childhood together.  See you on Thursday!!
