Episode #100: Legacy - Fanboys

March 28, 2019

Wow episode 100!  How do we keep hitting these milestones?  Maybe they aren’t milestones because of how often we record.  Today we have some amazing guests to help celebrate 100 episodes of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast, two-thirds of The Bluemilk Podcast Dirk AKA Drinking and Jacob AKA Hyena Boy.  Mike Talent is still MIA. Rumor is he was captured by Oddjob after trying to steal Goldfinger’s golden girl.  Why The Bluemilk guys you say, are you finally reviewing Star Wars? Sorry to disappoint you but nope. We are reviewing an incredible Star Wars related film though Fanboys.  Bonus Bluemilk topics include Area 51, Kevin Smith, and the never ending nerd war between Star Trek and Star Wars fans.

Fanboys is a really incredible film especially if you like Star Wars even a little bit.  If you are a super fan like Jacob, Dirk, and Matt you will enjoy it even more! It is a laugh out loud comedy littered with amazing cameos and actors who clearly are passionate about Star Wars as well.  The cinematography is mediocre, the acting is good, but the script and the story is where this film really shines. Hyena Boy really enjoyed the film awarding it 3 out of 5 Reels. Drinking and Matt who are both infinitely wiser enjoyed Fanboys much more.  They both award it 4 out of 5 Reels. If you have not watched it and you are a nerd do yourself a favor and check it out. It really is a good time.

I hope you enjoyed this past week’s special guests.  If you did or if you didn’t let us know, we yearn for your feedback.  Mike Talent and Matt are hoping to get more special guests on when they can to chat about movies.  Don’t forget to like, subscribe, and share The Bluemilk Podcast on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  We will chat at you on Tuesday with hopefully our review of Us if Mike Talent ever escapes the clutches of Oddjob.

Episode #99: Legacy - Hondros

Episode #99: Legacy - Hondros

March 26, 2019

Welcome boys and girls to a fun and long Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Mr. Mike Talent is not here today. He is out of country fulfilling his obligation for MI6.  Luckily Matt is good at blackmailing people and was able to find a guest host for today, Mr. Mile High Show himself Matt Santos!  The film they attempt to review today is Hondros a documentary on war photographer Chris Hondros. Topics include obviously lots and lots and lots of talk about photojournalism, downing Nyquil, and the Oakland A’s.

Both the Matt’s agree Hondros is an incredible doc on an amazing photographer that you can go watch right now on Netflix.  Mr. Mile High Show is not a big fan of movies especially documentaries on photographers but he loved this one. He especially enjoyed the interviews of Chris’s mother about her son growing up with a camera in his hands.  RFN Matt really enjoyed the film as well. He especially liked how the documentary was not just about Chris’ life but 3 of his most impactful images and the stories behind them. Matt Santos gives Hondros an amazing rating of 4 out of 5 Reels.  RFN Matt goes a little bit above and beyond with 4.5 out of 5 Reels. He really loved this movie not just because it is about photography but it is a really great documentary in it’s own right.

Mike Talent will continue to be out of the country for our next pod this Thursday so Matt again is calling in a favor, a huge favor for our very special 100th Episode!  Who you may ask is joining him well you will have to tune in on Thursday to find out. Here is a hint they also have a podcast. Chat with you on Thursday and hopefully Mike will find his way home next week so we can review the new Jordan Peele horror flick everyone is raving about, Us.

Episode #98: Tributary - Triple Frontier

Episode #98: Tributary - Triple Frontier

March 21, 2019

Happy Thursday everyone!! Welcome to a brand spanking new Tributary podcast of the recently released Netflix Original Triple Frontier starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, and a Charlie Hunnam.  What an amazing cast for a film let alone a Netflix Original!  Topics today included 2 movies in 1, sequels, and delicious greed.

Triple Frontier is a decent movie, well the first half.  The acting is great and the story was interesting but the second half of the movie falls apart quickly especially the story.  Pedro Pascal knocked it out of the park.  He is really getting some great roles recently and stepping up his game.  The set pieces were beautiful and the cinematography was amazing, that makes two movies in a row with amazing cinematography.  Matt thought the first half of the movie was great and the second half was terrible.  Mike was not a huge fan of Ben Affleck’s character or his acting but still thought this was a pretty good movie.  It was entertaining and well produced.  Both of your host’s agree it is worth a watch if you have Netflix.  It is not a must see but you will definitely be entertained.  They both award Triple Frontier 3.5 out of 5 Reels.

Next week Mike Talent is out of country, literally!  He is off taking another vacation or so he told Matt.  Maybe he is really one of those James Bond types but keeping it a secret!  Matt is working on a couple of fun shows for next week if the stars align.  If they don’t I guess you will probably get a solo cast or two.  Thanks for listening and tune in for a couple of special guests and a special pod for episode #100, if things work out.  Wow, that is a lot of talking! At least 50 hours of movie reviews if not more!  I am tired just thinking about editing all of those hours.  Have a killer weekend and chat with you Tuesday.

Episode #97: The Kid (2019)

Episode #97: The Kid (2019)

March 19, 2019

Guess what day it is, Tuesday AKA new podcast day!  Our review today is a film that is being overshadowed by Captain Marvel, The Kid based around you guessed it Billy the Kid.  Side topics include why don’t we have more western films today, Old Tucson Studios, and of course Clint Eastwood.

The Kid is a mediocre movie at best.  The acting is decent, the sets are great, and the cinematography shines at moments.  Ethan Hawke and Dane DeHann do adequate jobs as Sheriff Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.  They are not their best roles in a film but not horrible either. Chris Pratt as a villain was great except for the lack of appearances.  His character is literally in the film for maybe 15 minutes tops. Both Mike and Matt really would have liked to see what Pratt could do give enough screen time as a villain.  The biggest problem with this film is the story. It is very unique and a different take on a story that has been told several times over but it is not a great. Both Matt and Mike agree if you have already seen Captain Marvel go catch this film.  It is entertaining and fun and there really is not a whole of films in theaters right now. They both give 2019’s The Kid 3 out of 5 Reels.

This Thursday the guys talk about a brand new Netflix Original with an incredible cast, Triple Frontier.  Thanks for listening to us chat about life, love, and movies. How do you think our hosts are doing? Over a year in and the pod continues on!  Thanks again for spending time with us in your hearing holes and we will chat at you this Thursday, same pod time, same pod website.

Episode #96: Legacy - The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot

Episode #96: Legacy - The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot

March 14, 2019

Happy post hump day aka Friday eve?  Anyways today is Thursday which means new podcast day!  Our review is about a film you probably never heard of but stars someone you have The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot starring Sam Elliott.  Outside topics include MTV Unplugged, Letterboxd, and Captain Marvel.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot is not what you would expect.  It really caught your hosts off guard.  The title comes off as a really fun B movie but it’s not.  This movie is very serious and very sad.  It is not a bad movie but it is not incredible either.  The acting is great especially by Sam Elliott.  The sets and cinematography are breath taking especially the outside shots in Canada and Germany.  The amazing title that throws you for a loop definitely hurt the ratings from your hosts.  Matt enjoyed the movie but did not think it was great.  He gives the film 2.5 out of 5 Reels.  Mike Talent also liked The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot but was stunned by the tone and feel of the movie.  He awards it 2 out of 5 Reels.

Next week we will be reviewing a western that came out the same week as Captain Marvel that is being overshadowed by it big time, The Kid based on the infamous Billy the Kid.  Our second film is a brand new Netflix Original that dropped yesterday, Triple Frontier.  It is an action film that takes place south of the border and has an amazing star studded cast to boot!  Chat with you next week everyone.

Episode #95: Captain Marvel

Episode #95: Captain Marvel

March 12, 2019

What a glorious day!!!  It is our review of the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film of the year, Captain Marvel!  We hope you are as excited as your two hosts’.  The boys stay on point for most of the double sized pod.  Bonus topics include Matt has more movie going issues, Mike really is a hardcore movie nerd, and a bit of comic book history about Captain Marvel including Kelly Sue DeConnick’s infamous run from 2012-2015 that the movie Carol Danvers is mostly based on.  There is no MCU tie because duh this movie is in the MCU!  A heads up though our spoiler section of the podcast starts at the 17 minute mark for those of you that have not seen the film yet.

No big surprise here but both the gents enjoyed Captain Marvel very much.  Mike enjoyed it just a touch more.  The acting was great, at times, the soundtrack was great especially if you are a child of the 90’s, and the sets looked pretty dang good too.  The story was decent but the telling of Danvers’ origin story through flashbacks worked at times but not great.  It is especially confusing at the start of the film.  It was great to see the Skrull- Kree war finally brought to the big screen and surely this is only the beginning of a much larger story involving the two species.  Mike really enjoyed Captain Marvel especially the soundtrack and the 90’s references.  He gives the film 4 out of 5 Reels.  Matt also enjoyed the movie but not nearly as much as Mike.  He is not a huge fan of Brie Larson and her acting.  He also was probably too nit picky for his own good.  Damn nerds can’t please them all!  He gives Captain Marvel 3.5 out of 5 Reels.      

Thursday we hope to talk about a little Same Elliot film that flew under the radar, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot.  Matt is very busy with the NAZ Suns basketball season winding down with a very long home stand.  Mike, well he is Mike and the day light savings time change makes recording a bit more challenging being on the east coast.  We will do our best to get it done but if not don’t fret we will talk about the film next week.  Enjoy our double sized pod of Captain Marvel and thanks again for stopping by and listening to two nerd’s geek out about films.  Chat at you maybe Thursday.

Episode #94: Tributary - The Lost City of Z

Episode #94: Tributary - The Lost City of Z

March 7, 2019

Happy Friday eve everyone!  Today your hosts Mike Talent and Matt crack open a brew and discuss a new Tributary Cast on The Lost City of Z an Amazon Original film.  Special topics include the 2012 film Piranha 3DD, ayahuasca, and sleepy Mike needs to go to bed.

The Lost City of Z is a great idea for a film, but a poor execution.  The story really drags on for a full 2 ½ hours.  The scriptwriters really crammed way too much into the film.  The interesting segments of exploring the Amazon were way too short and the political scenes were way too long.  The casting and acting was excellent.  There are some big name actors in this film and they all deliver great performances.  It’s really odd the film drags and feels rushed at the same time.  How is that possible?  Mysterious Mike was very disappointed with this film.  He wanted to see it originally in the theaters in 2017 but did not make it.  He gives the film 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt thought it was just average.  He felt there was a real missed opportunity to tell an incredible story that fell flat thanks to the script.  He also awards The Lost City of Z 3 out of 5 Reels.

Tuesday is going to be awesome!  Mysterious Mike and MCU Matt will discuss the first MCU movie of the year, Captain Marvel.  Is it great, is it bad, and is the cat really that awesome?  The guys will find out and report back to you so you don’t waste your time or money.  Thanks again for stopping by and listening to two nerd’s geek out about films.  Chat at you on Tuesday!

Episode #93: Legacy - Green Lantern

Episode #93: Legacy - Green Lantern

March 5, 2019

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday is NEW PODCAST DAY!  Today Matt and Mike fill a Legacy Cast request from an avid listener and friend of the show BJ one of the hosts’ of our sister pods The Blue Milk Podcast, where they talk about anything and everything Star Wars related and then some.  BJ enjoys torturing Matt and times and I am sure this suggestion was one of those times, he requested 2011’s Green Lantern.  Topics more interesting than this film include the upcoming Prescott based film Wish Man, listener love, and the true potential of the DC Extended Universe.

This movie is just rough.  Your hosts do not recommend you spend any time watching it unless you really want to see how far superhero films have come in the past 8 years.  There are moments that are not as horrible as others but for the most part this movie is a hard pass.  Mike Talent enjoyed it more on his second viewing and graciously gives Green Lantern 2 out of 5 Reels.  Matt on the other hand didn’t.  He gives the movie 1 out of 5 Reels.

This Thursday the guys chat about an Amazon Original film The Lost City of Z.  Captain Marvel comes out this Friday too, don’t forget!  Your hosts will hopefully make it to the theaters this weekend and will give you their review of 2019’s first MCU film.  Thanks for listening and don’t forget to shoot us an email riddled with hate or request a film to review or both!  Please tell your friends and family about our fun little pod especially if you hate it.  We will be back on Thursday to chat at you with another movie review while drinking a beer or two or three.
