Episode #125: Chasing Molly

Episode #125: Chasing Molly

July 30, 2019

Welcome boys and girls to your first pod of the week!  That’s right we did it (applause), we recorded two episodes this week!  Your first dose of film nerdery is our review of Chasing Molly our second screener ever, thanks Shelley Pack!  Bonus topics today include: we have a new Facebook Fan Group you should definitely join, Mike Talent is not sleepy for once, and lastly we have a new voicemail number for you to call and complain about us to our faces!

Chasing Molly is a fascinating B movie comedy that has tons of potential at times and not so much at others.  There are some really great funny concepts, grapefruiting comes to mind, that could have been explored further and there were scenes that could easily be cut.  The acting was ok throughout most of the film from the stars but a few of the side actors were pretty rough. This is not a must see movie but if you run across it while trying to find something to watch on your Roku or Smart TV it is worth a few laughs to take you away from the pain of reality.  The ending though was rough. It came out of nowhere and didn’t make a ton of sense. It is nice seeing Kurt Angle getting some work too.  Mike Talent and Matt agree Chasing Molly earns 2 out of 5 Reels.         

Thursday, hopefully Thursday, if Matt get his super edit on, The Boys (see what I did there?), discuss Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film according to him, Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood.  Mike and Matt are both passionate fans of QT but they differ greatly on this film.  Warning it is a long podcast, almost a full hour! Thanks for tuning in and supporting the show.                           

Lastly don’t forget to support our sister podcasts The Bluemilk Podcast and The Mile High Show also based in beautiful Prescott, Arizona.  They are way better podcasts than ours. Seriously.

Episode #124: Stuber

Episode #124: Stuber

July 23, 2019

Welcome podcast listeners to Reel Film Nerds land! Today Mike Talent and Matt discuss a fun summer popcorn flick that definitely will not win any awards, Stuber.  Topics that are not about this movie include 40’s, who actually uses Facetime, and Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con 2019 announcements.

Stuber really caught both of your hosts off guard.  It is a very funny film with a dash of heart with underlying tones about relationships.  The action was great but it was shot a bit too tight for some of the scenes according to Matt.  The acting was fantastic. The chemistry between Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani was amazing.  The writing was really good and most of the jokes land well, there are a few that really don’t land too.  The story is not super deep but it was fun, especially for a buddy cop type film. Both of your hosts agree this is well worth a watch but it is not a must see in the theater.  If you are itching to get out of the house you will not be disappointed dropping your hard earned cash on this one. Mike Talent really enjoyed himself and he admits it in the pod!  He awards Stuber 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt also really liked this film and agreed with Mike it is a fun popcorn flick.  He gives the movie 3.5 out of 5 Reels.

We got our second screener ever!  Whoop! Maybe the RFN podcast is getting a following?  We sure hope so. The film we will be talking about for Episode #125 is Chasing Molly starring Kurt Angle, Shelley Pack, and Jim Cashman.  If you want to watch it before our review it is available to download right now on all the major pay streaming services such as iTunes or the Google Play Store.  Mike and Matt are looking forward to watching another film off the beaten path.

Episode #123: Midsommar

Episode #123: Midsommar

July 17, 2019

Hey kids what time is it?  No it’s not Howdy Doody time it’s Reel Film Nerds podcast time!!  Check us out we actually recorded a pod this week despite Matt being crazy busy with the 2019 IFL United Bowl.  Today we talk about Ari Aster’s follow up to his first breakout horror film Hereditary (RFN Episode #23 if you are curious), Midsommar.  Super special crazy impressive off topics include Galaxy’s Edge, cinema drones, we wish we could do this full time, and Drowning Nerd Productions needs a studio.

Midsommar is a super creepy cult movie with multiple images that will haunt your dreams for life!  The story starts out with a giant bang and quickly turns into a bore. It is a really long movie but damn is it beautiful.  The cinematography and set design were also masterfully done too bad the story did not match. There are some interesting scenes throughout the film but the overall story was just terrible, at least Matt thought it was.  Mike thought it was ok but nothing compared to Hereditary.  They both agree do not waste your money on seeing Midsommar in theaters.  A24, the production/distribution company has a deal with Amazon Prime hosting all of their films, just go ahead and wait until this one pops up there.  Mysterious Mike Talent gives the movie 2.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt really just did not like Midsommar at all.  There are aspects he enjoyed but the story was so bad he could not overlook it.  He is actually harsher than Mike for once, giving it a full Reel lower with a 1.5 out of 5 Reels.

Either next week or later this week we will be reviewing an action comedy based on Uber starring Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani titled Stuber.  What do you think should Mike and Matt quit their day jobs and start their own media company like Collider or Kinda Funny?  Ya you are right they are not that talented, hell they can’t even get listeners for this podcast.  Oh sweet dreams why do you torture our noble souls? TTYL!!!

Episode #122: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Episode #122: Spider-Man: Far From Home

July 9, 2019

Hi everybody and welcome to another incredible amazing stupendous episode of the Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Well it’s here, the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film of 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home.  Not MCU or Spider-Man related topics include Aladdin, 501st, nerd cred, and Darth Predator. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home is a great MCU addition in the vein of the Ant-Man films.  It is light hearted and fun throughout most of the film with incredible action sequences.  A ton of the side characters had expanded roles in this film versus Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Some of them were wanted and appreciated such as Mary Jane and others flat out were not.  This film does get serious when it needs to be too. The explanation at the beginning of the film about the infamous snap was a nice addition giving us information not only for this film but the MCU as a whole.  Thank you whoever decided to add those scenes to the film. Lastly don’t forget to stay for both end credit scenes. They are very important on where the MCU is going next, game changing is putting it lightly. Matt really enjoyed this film but he might be biased, he is a big fan of Mysterio.  He did enjoy Far From Home more than Homecoming awarding the film 4 out of 5 Reels.  Mike Talent enjoyed the film as well but not as much as Matt did.  Talent did lose his nerd card during this episode so it’s to be expected.  Mike gives Spider-Man: Far From Home 3.5 out of 5 Reels.       

Next week hopefully we will get a podcast recorded.  Matt is very busy with the Arizona Rattlers heading to the national championship IFL United Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. this weekend.  If they do get one recorded it will be on Ari Aster’s follow up to last years chilling horror film Hereditary, titled Midsommer.  Look for our review on that super weird and crazy horror flick hopefully next week, toodle loo.

Episode #121: Yesterday

Episode #121: Yesterday

July 3, 2019

Yesterday, All my troubles seemed so far away, Now it looks as though they're here to stay, Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Welcome everyone to a super special episode of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast!  Today we review Yesterday, not the song but the movie inspired by the infamous band that change the world The Beatles!  We even brought on a special guest to help digest this film.  Hippy, vintage baseball jock, and Beatle maniac Steve Stockmar!  Extracurricular topics include Who is LaLa, RFN the unofficial podcast of Portillo’s Big Beef, and MCU tie in battle.

Yesterday is an incredible idea for a fun fantastical film that falls flat on its face into rom-com territory without much com.  The film starts off well exploring the idea of what if only one man knew The Beatles existed.  It quickly turns into a stale romantic comedy with very little comedy.  The acting is great and the new renditions of classic Beatles tunes are really well done.  It just did not really push the boundaries of the premise that is presented in the trailers.  Is this film worth a watch, yes. Should you run out and watch it in a theater, no. Wait until it comes out in Redbox or on one of the many streaming services.  Guest host and Beatles nut Steve of the house Stockmaratheon gives Yesterday 2 out of 5 Reels.  Mike Talent enjoyed the film more than Matt and Steve but for some reason he has the exact same rating as Matt?!?  They both give Danny Boyle’s latest film 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

Since you got a double sized episode this week we are only giving you one.  Next week Mike and Matt will review the final MCU movie of the year and last Phase 4 film Spider-Man: Far From Home.  If the guys make the time they will get you a second pod next week most likely a Legacy Cast since we have been slacking on those with all the summer films.  Have an incredible 4th of July and chat at you next week.
