Episode #181: Tributary - The Old Guard

July 29, 2020

Welcome faithful listeners! This week Mike and Matt reviewed a Netflix Original that is destroying the charts, The Old Guard. Not too far off topics include Aeon Flux, favorite Pixar Films, and are movie theaters ever coming back.  

What a great surprise of a film! This one really came out of nowhere. The Old Guard is a fantasy action movie based around immortality and world history. The world building is excellent especially the juxtaposition of Charize Theron’s character Andy and KiKi Layne’s character Nile. The old versus the new shows you this unique world from two different perspectives helping flesh it out. Mysterious Mike really enjoyed The Old Guard giving it 3.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt thought the film was incredible and can not wait for the inevitable sequel awarding it 4 out of 5 Reels.

We hope the guys will be talking about a movie next week. Mysterious Mike Talent did not do his homework. Hopefully, he will even though it is late and we will get something watched and reviewed for you. Thanks for listening to our pod, hopefully you enjoyed it as much as we did. Chat at you next week!

Episode #180: Legacy - Guns Akimbo

Episode #180: Legacy - Guns Akimbo

July 22, 2020

Welcome faithful listeners, yes it’s hump day but it’s also NEW PODCAST DAY! Today Matt and Mike kick back and chat about lots of things but mostly Guns Akimbo starring Samara Weaving and Daniel Radcliffe. Extra topics include the Fast and Furious franchise, Tenet on indefinite hold, and Universal VS AMC Theaters.

Fair warning, this film is not for everyone. It is a fun fast paced action comedy with lots of video game elements and millennial tidbits that has several parts that are just flat out bad. There are great lines and scenes too that are so good they will catch you by surprise. Weaving is excellent in the film in a character that should have been written better. Radcliffe does a great job leading the film as a nerdy video game programmer turned action celebrity. Ned Dennehy, almost unrecognizable, brings the sadistic tech savvy villain Riktor to life in a very almost disturbing way. Mysterious Mike really enjoyed Guns Akimbo giving it 3.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt thought the film was fun and action packed but was just average awarding it 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys chat about more random topics they enjoy and you probably don’t but hopefully focus on a new Netflix film The Old Guard starring Charlize Theron. Thanks for listening to our pod, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Chat at you next week!

Episode #179: Tributary - Palm Springs

Episode #179: Tributary - Palm Springs

July 15, 2020

Hi everybody! Welcome to the Reel Film Nerds Podcast Episode 179, wow really?  That’s a lot of talking right there! Today your host’s not talented Matt and Mysterious Mike Talent review and discuss the brand new Hulu Original Film Palm Springs. Not time loop related topics include AIMS testing, Top Gun: Maverick, and the infamous Groundhog Day.

Palm Springs is a really fun and poignant comedy that might hit a little too close to home during our current pandemic. This movie takes the infinite time loop genre and adds a second person to the mix.  Instead of one person experiencing the day alone like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day we get Nyles, played by Andy Samberg, and Sarah, played by Cristin Milioti, going through the single day loop together. This premise leads to extreme antics, hatred, and even romance.  Palm Springs is a really fun movie that is not a waste of an hour and a half. Everyone needs a good laugh and this film is full of them. Mike Talent, always the cynic, gives the film 3 out of 5 Reels. Matt liked it just a smidge more doling out 3.5 out of 5 Reels for the desert rom-com.

Next week is Mike’s pick and he has chosen a movie you probably did not even know existed. Guns Akimbo starring Samara Weaving and Daniel Radcliffe. The New Zealand action comedy thriller is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Thanks for listening to our pod, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Chat at you next week!

Episode #178: Tributary - 7500

Episode #178: Tributary - 7500

July 8, 2020

Welcome to another incredible Reel Film Nerds podcast about a movie that is not in a theater, again. Today the boys review an Amazon Original film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 7500. Bonus topics for this episode include Kirby T’s, Uber Eats, and piloting an airplane.

Wow what a movie out of left field! Seriously no one saw this coming including Mike and he picked it! 7500 is a really great film taking place almost entirely in a jumbo jet’s hijacked cockpit. It is very reminiscent of a one man play except with a few more actors. Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes this film. He carries it almost completely on his own. The story is not perfect but it has twists and turns always keeping you guessing. Mike and Matt both really enjoyed 7500 but like most of the time Matt is more giving on his rating. He awards the airplane hijacking thriller 4 out of 5 Reels. Mike is close with a competitive 3.5 out of 5 Reels.     

Are you looking for another comedy to watch to help lift your spirits that is inspired by Groundhog Day?  Yes? So are we! That's why next week we watch the Hulu Original Film Palm Springs starring Andy Samberg and  Cristin Milioti. Thanks for listening to our latest podcast, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Chat at you next week!

Episode #177: Tributary - Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Episode #177: Tributary - Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

July 2, 2020

Yep we slacked off a bit this week but only by a day.  Mike Talent was busy with family and his new born and well Matt is just Matt. We do have a new pod for you and surprise surprise it's another Netflix comedy, Will Ferrell and Rachael McAdams latest Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. Off topics today include RFN t-shirts, favorite breweries, and the infamous ASU vs U of A rivalry.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is a fun comedic romp on a topic not many Americans know about. Ferrell and McAdams are fantastic in the film portraying the obtuse musical duo. The backdrops are breathtaking, especially the shots of Iceland. The story is goofy and fun especially the addition of a Russian villain played by Dan Stevens. Eurovision is definitely worth taking time out of your day to watch. It is not Will Ferrell’s best work but it is not his worst either. Mike Talent really enjoyed the movie giving it an above average score of 3.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt also enjoyed the song contest parody but not as much but he is glad to see Ferrell climb out of his rut. He gives the movie 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys keep rolling with streaming films finally getting away from Netflix with the Amazon Original 7500 starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Thanks for listening to our latest podcast, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Chat at you next week!
