Episode #108: Legacy - Fight Club

April 25, 2019

We are in the Endgame now listeners!  Wow, bet you can’t tell that we are excited for a certain movie that is coming out tonight!  To go along with this epic film we have another epic film from the late 90’s, Fight Club!  Special topics today include Mike’s hate then love of Pitt, sweet tea or regular ice tea, and lastly of course AVENGERS:ENDGAME!!!!!!

I am sure you can already guess this if you have listened to a few of our podcasts up to this point.  Basically Matt and Mike love this movie.  The story is incredible and unexpected.  The acting is on another level completely, from the entire cast not just Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.  The cinematography and lighting is something to pay attention to.  If you have not watched Fight Club or have not seen it for a long time do yourself a favor and go watch it in honor of the film’s 20th anniversary this year.  I am sure you do not need to read this next sentence but here it is anyways.  Matt and Mike both give Fight Club a perfect rating of 5 out of 5 Reels!

Next week it’s here, WOO-HOO!  We will definitely have a double sized episode for Avengers: Endgame!  There are tons and tons of reviews out already about it so if you can’t wait go check one of those out and yes we will still be reviewing it even though everyone and their mom already has.  To get this out there now we will be spoiling it like we do with all our reviews.  We will give you plenty of warning ahead of time so if you get spoiled it’s your own damn fault!  Mike and Matt are crazy excited to talk about this one so expect two dudes geeking out big time.  Chat at you next week with one giant pod instead of two.

Episode #107: Legacy - Cloud Atlas

Episode #107: Legacy - Cloud Atlas

April 23, 2019

Well it’s another Tuesday and that means another pod.  Matt decided he didn’t want to leave our faithful listeners without a pod for today so he recorded a solocast. He actually didn’t have to work this weekend and decided to watch way too much Netflix including a film he has been trying to see for years, The Wachowskis’ epic Cloud Atlas.  Bonus topics include closed captioning, missing Mike Talent, and listener numbers are slowly growing, whoop!

Cloud Atlas is a gorgeous movie that is difficult to pin down.  It is confusing as hell but was shot and acted incredibly well.  If you took maybe half as many stories and cut the time down on this film by almost an hour it probably would attract more viewers.  Personally Matt could watch an entire movie based on a couple of the stories specifically one of the ones in the future.  Cloud Atlas is enjoyable and worth a watch but maybe watch it in chunks much like your host did.  He awards the film 3.5 out of 5 Reels.

We hope you enjoyed this quick solo cast by Matt.  If you did or didn’t why not let us know, we mean Matt, ya Matt not us. Thanks for hanging in with us and don’t forget Avengers: Endgame comes out on Thursday!!!  Chat at you Thursday with maybe Mike Talent about Fight Club, toodles.

Episode #106: The Best of Enemies

Episode #106: The Best of Enemies

April 18, 2019

Thursday is again upon us and that means it’s podcast time!  Today Mike Talent and Not Talented Matt discuss Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell’s newest film, The Best of Enemies.  Special topics include hearing aids, Disney live action remakes, and movie goers still suck again!

The Best of Enemies is a good story but not the best movie.  Mike enjoyed it a lot more than Matt. He thought it was a feel good movie with amazing acting and is a nice slow burn.  Matt was not a big fan at all. He agrees the acting was incredible for most of the film but that is about all your hosts agreed on.  The Best of Enemies was too long in his eyes and left out one side of the story more than the film should have. Mike gives the movie 3.5 out of 5 Reels and thinks if you are looking for a film to watch this weekend this is a good one to see.  Matt on the other hand thinks you should wait until it comes out on a streaming service or hits Redbox. He gives the film 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys might be on a bit of a hiatus or Matt might do a solo cast.  The plan is to review one of both the host’s favorite films for a Legacy Cast, Fight Club but it might have to wait.  Life gets in the way sometimes especially when your hosts are separated by almost an entire continent. We will see on Tuesday what happens or we won’t.  Just know that Fight Club and Avengers: End Game will be reviewed very soon. Have a great weekend and thanks for your continued support of our podcast.

Episode #105: Shazam!

Episode #105: Shazam!

April 16, 2019

Hi everybody and welcome to your first Reel Film Nerds pod of the week!  Today Mike Talent and Matt discuss a superhero movie.  We know what you are thinking oh man they did a Legacy Cast on another MCU film but nope!  The guys talk about their second DC movie of the year, Shazam!  A little bit of a warning on this week’s pods, Matt has horrible allergies thanks to all the lovely Prescott junipers so he sounds very stuffy and sneezes a bit.  Sorry, but hey at least he still sat down to record a couple of sodes.  Extra special topics today include Disney+, taxes, the excellent Tom Hanks movie Big, and Ghostbusters.

Shazam! is a fun take on the superhero genre.  It is literally every kid’s dream and many adults dreams too.  The chemistry between Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer is fantastic especially the scenes when they are trying to figure out Shazam’s powers.  This is a unique take on a superhero film that is not super serious like the upcoming Avengers: End Game.  It is a nice breath of fresh air especially from DC.  They are just knocking it out of the park with their last three films, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam!  Is this movie going to win a bunch of awards, probably not but it is heck of a fun time.  Mike Talent really enjoyed Shazam! awarding the film 4 out of 5 Reels.  Matt also liked the original Captain Marvel film but not as much as Mike.  He gives the movie 3.5 out of 5 Reels.  They both recommend if you can to go watch this one in the theater.  You will not be disappointed.

Thanks again for stopping by and downloading our pod.  Thursday Matt and Mike discuss Sam Rockwell and Taraji P. Henson’s latest film The Best of Enemies.  Don’t forget to check out our sister podcasts, The BlueMilk Podcast on the YouTube’s and The Mile High Show which can be found just about anywhere pods live.  Jacob one of the Bluemilk hosts’ was at Star Wars Celebration this past weekend and did a bang up job keeping everyone informed about the convention on their Facebook page.  Check it out and while you’re there make sure to like our page too.  Chat at you Thursday, toodles.

Episode #104: Tributary - The Highwaymen

Episode #104: Tributary - The Highwaymen

April 11, 2019

Before we get going on your second pod of the week here is a fair warning.  Matt and Mike really and I mean really get going on this pod.  They chatted it up big time!  If this annoys you then scroll down to our ratings and just skip this pod.  Today the guys talk about a biopic based on the Texas Rangers who hunted down Bonnie and Clyde, the Netflix Original The Highwaymen.  Just a few of the off topics today include Okilly Dokilly, high school, tattoos, and the many new streaming services.

The Highwaymen is an incredible film.  The story is amazing and is one that is rarely ever told.  The writing, direction, and of course that acting are fantastic as well.  This film is the complete package with a great cast, beautiful sets, and shot extremely well.  Basically if you have Netflix and have not watched this movie yet you are really doing yourself a disservice.  Mike really enjoyed The Highwaymen and gives it 4 out of 5 Reels.  Matt could not get enough of this movie.  He is a giant history buff and film nerd to boot so of course he thought The Highwaymen was incredible.  He gives it 4.5 out of 5 Reels.

Thanks again for stopping by and downloading our pod.  Next week we review Shazam! and The Best of Enemies.  Don’t forget to check out our sister podcasts, The BlueMilk Podcast on the YouTube’s and The Mile High Show which can be found just about everywhere pods exist.  Have a great weekend and make sure to get out and catch a movie!

Episode #103: Pet Sematary (2019)

Episode #103: Pet Sematary (2019)

April 9, 2019

The darkness of Tuesday has descended on the world once more and it brings with it another incredible episode of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast!  Today the gents review yet another horror movie.  Mike is just loving all of these horror releases and Matt well let’s just say Avengers: Endgame can’t get here soon enough.  Today Mike Talent and not talented Matt discuss the 2019 reboot of Pet Sematary.  Off topics include way too much “That’s What She Said,” Goose V Church, and Brightburn.

Pet Sematary is not horrible but it is not an incredible movie either.  It drags especially in the first half.  There are some really great fun creepy parts but they are too few and far between.  The acting was incredible well most of the acting was incredible especially by Jeté Laurence.  The sets are beautiful and the cinematography was great.  But overall both of your hosts were disappointed.  They really had high hopes for this remake and it did not live up to expectations.  Mike thought Pet Sematary was just average giving it 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt was not impressed at all.  He thought it was a lackluster attempt at a reboot.  He enjoyed the acting but felt the film as a whole just dragged.  He gives the film 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

Thursday we talk about a new Netflix Original, Highwaymen starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson.  It is a biopic based on the two Texas Rangers who hunted down and killed infamous bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde in 1934.  If you have Netflix give it a watch then tune in for our thoughts Thursday.  Chat with you then.

Episode #102: Legacy - The Matrix

Episode #102: Legacy - The Matrix

April 4, 2019

Happy Thursday Reel Film Nerds (You not us)!  Today we review a truly nerdy and classic film in celebration of it’s 20th anniversary, The Matrix!  The guys really geek out on this one and you get an almost bonus episode of a whole hour. It is not as bad of a rant as last week when Mr. Mile High Show was guest hosting for episode #99 but it is pretty close.  Special topics include cell phones, Tesla’s, and how The Matrix paved the way for today’s action and superhero films especially the MCU.

The Matrix is an incredible ground breaking film.  It has aged pretty well but there are a few missteps especially with the CGI.  CGI was still pretty much in its infancy though so you can’t be too tough on the film.  Mike Talent loves this movie almost as much as he loves Jaws and we all know how much he loves that film.  Mike gives the Wachowski’s epic a perfect rating with 5 out of 5 Reels!!! Matt really loves The Matrix but noticed the age of the film a bit more than Mike.  He was especially put off by the floating foam scene towards the end of the film. Matt still really loves it and awards The Matrix a 4.5 out of 5 Reels!

Next week the guys review another new horror movie!  Ok it is a reboot but man does it look good, Stephen King’s Pet Cemetery.  They will also be chatting about a brand new Netflix original starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson, The Highwaymen based around the Bonnie and Clyde story.  Don’t forget to write in and let us know how we are doing and send us your theories on Jordan Peele’s Us or any other film we have reviewed. Heck just send us any old question you have and we will read and answer it in a future pod.  Thanks for tuning in for a super nerdy podcast and we will chat at you on Tuesday!

Episode #101: Us

Episode #101: Us

April 2, 2019

Welcome back to your regularly scheduled podcast!  Mike Talent has escaped the clutches of Goldfinger and returned to kick off the next 100 episodes of the Reel Film Nerds!  We are a bit behind on our movies, but this movie really deserved to be reviewed by Mike Talent because of his obsession with horror films.  Today the guys chat mostly about Jordan Peele’s Us.  Bonus topics include Iceland, classic horror films, and The Big Lebowski.

Us is an incredible movie especially if you enjoy horror and thriller films.  If you are not a fan of either of those genres you should probably skip this one.  It will literally give you nightmares.  The directing and writing by Jordan Peele were incredible!  The acting especially by Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke was amazing as well.  The story is even better!  It has elements of past horror and sci-fi stories but told in a new unique way.  There are tons of shout outs and homages to past horror and sci-fi films hidden throughout as well.  Jordan Peele is lighting the horror world on fire with his first two feature length films and we can’t wait to see what he does next!  Matt is super excited for the upcoming Twilight Zone that Peele is hosting and is heavily involved in.  Problem is that it means subscribing to another streaming service.  Isn’t this why everyone has ditched cable, so we didn’t have to pay for multiple services and just watch the shows we want now?  Wow, that didn’t last long.  The hosts both agree Us is an incredible film and is a must see in the theaters.  They both give it 4 out of 5 Reels.

Coming up on Thursday is a special Legacy Cast, The Matrix, in honor of its 20th anniversary!  The Matrix is currently streaming on Amazon Prime right now if you would like to watch or re-watch an amazing mind-bending film before your hosts chat about it.  Thanks for stopping by and listening to our pod.  What did you think of Us?  Do you have any theories you want to share with your hosts?  Email us and we will read them on an upcoming podcast.  Have a great Tuesday and we will chat at you again this Thursday!
