Episode #190: Tributary - Get Duked!

September 30, 2020

Sick and tired of politics yet? GREAT! Why not sit down and laugh while listening to the Talent-less Mike of Mystery and Matt review the Amazon Original Get Duked! Better topics than this movie include Prescott Valley professional sports, The Boys TV show, and our Third Annual Harvest Horror Fest!

Well this is awkward, maybe not awkward but it has been a long time since Mike and Matt didn’t agree at least a little bit on a film. Mike Talent really enjoyed Get Duked! Matt on the other hand really hated this film and felt he wasted his time. This is not necessarily a bad film but it is definitely not for everyone. It is a hip-hop manhunt drug comedy that takes place in the Scottish Highlands. There are some very funny parts and the scenery is beautiful. The acting was decent from our four leads who are unknown here in the United States.

Mike really enjoyed Get Duked! and did not have any issues with the thick Scottish accents. He graciously awards the film 3 out of 5 Reels. Matt on the complete opposite side of the coin disliked the Amazon Original and thinks you should skip it. He awards the film 1.5 out of 5 Reels.

Next week is the start of Mike’s favorite time of the year, our Third Annual Harvest Horror Fest! For our new listeners we review nothing but horror films for the month of October. Our first horror flick picked by Mike is 1993’s Leprechaun starring Warwick Davis and Jennifer Aniston. If you would like to watch it with us it is currently streaming on HBO and HBO Max. Thanks for hanging out and listening to our little pod. We will chat at you next week!

Episode #189: Legacy - Paul

Episode #189: Legacy - Paul

September 23, 2020

Hi everybody! It is Wednesday and that means new podcast day! For today’s episode Mike and Matt travel back to 2011 to review a fun comedic alien sci-fi classic starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, Paul. Odd discussion topics include genetics, probing, and the acceptance nerd culture.

This is the kind of film we need right now. It is fun, nerdy, and hilarious! If you have not seen Paul it is worth a watch. It is a unique alien road trip story across the United States by two British sci-fi geeks featuring an incredible comedic cast. Names include Jane Lynch, David Koechner, Jason Bateman, and Kristen Wiig. Paul embraced nerd culture and helped bring it into the mainstream with other comedic properties like The Big Bang Theory during 2011. Matt and Mike both enjoyed their re-watch of this great film. They both award Paul 3.5 out of 5 Reels. It is currently streaming on HBO Max.

It is Mike’s pick for next week and he hunted down an award winning Amazon Original from the United Kingdom, Get Duked! The trailer looks very promising on this unique romp through the Scottish Highlands. Don’t forget to check out this week’s promo and movie giveaway Most Wanted written and directed by Daniel Roby and starring Josh Hartnett. Thanks for hanging out and listening to our little pod. We will chat at you next week!

Episode #188: The New Mutants

Episode #188: The New Mutants

September 16, 2020

Happy hump day everyone! Today Matt and Mike continue cheating death and visit the movie theater to catch the last Fox Marvel film The New Mutants. Additional topics include sports ball, Siskel & Ebert, and the future of the X-Men franchise.

What is wrong with critics today? The New Mutants isn’t a masterpiece but it is in no way a terrible movie. Could it have been better, sure. It is a decent take on making the mutant/superhero genre into a horror film. There are still elements of your typical superhero film with big action sequences and CGI but it succeeds at it’s attempt to create a horror sub-genre. The acting is very good, the sets all take place in one location but are very different, and the story is decent. This is not a must see film in the theaters but it is definitely worth a watch when it drops on Hulu or Disney+ in the future. Mike and Matt both agree it earns 3 out of 5 Reels.    

Next week is a little dry for new releases on streaming and in theaters. It is Matt’s pick and he chose to do a Legacy cast on the 2011 alien road trip comedy, Paul. It is currently streaming on HBO and HBO Max. Don’t forget to enter our movie giveaway contests, we have a couple going on with more in the near future! Thanks for listening and we will chat at you next week!

Episode #187: Tenet

Episode #187: Tenet

September 9, 2020

Thank the maker! Matt and Mike Talent return to the theaters this week after a 5 month absence risking their lives and relationships to see Christoper Nolan’s latest epic Tenet. Bonus topics included more movie giveaways, Twilight (yes, that one), and the Saw franchise.

Christopher Nolan again tackles his favorite subject, time, but using a James Bond type character. Tenet is a great film that has issues, according to Matt. The shining star is all the practical effects especially when they crash a 747 into a building! The acting from John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, and Kenneth Branagh was excellent but Robert Pattinson was on another level. The first hour of the film is very confusing and might turn viewers away. About half way through something happens that helps explain the whole film and it’s off to the races from then on. Mike Talent really enjoyed Tenet giving it 4 out of 5 Reels. Matt thought the film was mediocre and had issues but really enjoyed it. He awards the movie 3.5 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys will review a movie of some kind if Mike Talent can make up his mind. Maybe they will return to the theaters for the first Marvel (not MCU) horror film The New Mutants. Don’t forget to enter our movie giveaway contests, we have a couple going on with more in the near future! Thanks for listening and we will chat at you next week!

Episode #186: Bill & Ted Face the Music

September 2, 2020

Happy week happy pod! Today your host’s Mike Talent and Matt review a brand spanking new movie that they are shocked got made, Bill & Ted Face the Music. Hold onto your butts listeners this is a long pod! Extra topics include a farewell and thank you to Chadwick Boseman, box office numbers, and booze filled seltzers.

Have you been missing that thing we used to have last year, all the way back in 2019, what was it called, that’s right fun! Bill & Ted Face the Music is just plain old fun for fun’s sake. This film is full of characters, nostalgia, and time traveling. Is Bill & Ted Face the Music going to win all kinds of awards and make billions of dollars, probably not but it is a hilarious comedy with an OK story and great acting. It is definitely worth the trip to see it in the theater or rent it at home like we did. Matt was having a pretty rough day when he watched this film and it brightened his day a lot. He gives Bill & Ted Face the Music 4 out of 5 Reels. Mike Talent really enjoyed the film but he just could not get over the confusing and rough story. He awards the film 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys will hit the theaters for the first time since mid March. They are leery but are not going to miss the opening weekend of Christopher Nolan’s latest film Tenet. Don’t forget to enter our giveaway for a free copy of the independent film The Vanished starring Anne Heche and Thomas Jane. Thanks for listening and we will chat at you next week!
