Episode #214: Nobody

March 31, 2021

Welcome everyone to another incredible Reel Film Nerds Podcast. Today’s choice in film is brought to you by Mysterious Mike. Tired of sitting at home on his comfy couch we risked life and limb to watch Nobody starring Bob Odenkirk only available in theaters. Amazing topics today include The Vault movie giveaway, PBR, and collared peccary.

Two action packed shoot em up films back to back what a great end to the month of March. Nobody is nothing special when it comes to story. It has been told several times throughout the years in different ways. That is not a bad thing just not special. What is special is the actors and loads of action they deliver. Bob Odenkirk goes out of his comfort zone as a comedian and dives deep into hardcore action performing 90% of his own stunts. He truly did a fantastic job. Christopher Lloyd makes a few appearances, some of the most memorable of the film, brandishing a weapon and dipping into the action too. Nobody is a really fun film that is definitely worth a watch in a movie theater. If you enjoy films such as Jon Wick, The Expendables, or RED you will enjoy this film too. Mike and Matt agree Nobody earns a solid 4 out of 5 Reels.    

For next week Matt and Mike will review what is sure to be an extremely controversial film Roe v. Wade. The director Nick Loeb reached out to us personally to review his film. It comes out April 2, 2021 on Video on Demand. Thank you for supporting our podcast and we will chat at you next week.

Episode #213: Tributary - Boss Level

Episode #213: Tributary - Boss Level

March 24, 2021

Welcome everyone to this week’s Reel Film Nerds Podcast. Today’s selection is brought to you by Matt. He kept with the streaming services picking the Hulu Original Boss Level starring Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson. Bonus topics include brain surgery, Crossbones, and a new giveaway for next week.

Are you looking for a film that is over the top violent, filled with swear words, and will leave you laughing until it hurts? If your answer is yes then Boss Level is a movie for you. It is Groundhog Day meets Dedpool. Our star Frank Grillo is being hunted by assassins but can’t seem to figure out how to make it through the day without dying and waking up to do it all over again. The acting is good, the sets are great, and the special effects are mostly spot on. This movie does not take itself seriously and that is one of its strong points. It is a good old fashioned popcorn flick that would be best enjoyed in the theaters. Matt back on top awards Boss Level 4 out of 5 Reels. Mike enjoyed the film as well but not as much giving it 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week Mike and Matt will return to the theaters to catch another fun blockbuster action film starring Bob Odenkirk and Christopher Lloyd, Nobody.  Thank you for supporting our podcast and we will chat at you next week.

Episode #212: Tributary - Moxie

Episode #212: Tributary - Moxie

March 17, 2021

Welcome everyone to this week’s Reel Film Nerds Podcast. It was Mike’s pick for today’s episode and he chose the Netflix Original coming of age story Moxie directed by Amy Poehler. Bonus topics include Academy Award nominations, high school parties in film, and South Park’s Vaccination Special.

When it comes to coming of age stories, Moxie is par for the course but also breaks new ground.  It is your typical teenage high school drama with a love story peppered in but things just don't seem right. The boys in the school verbally and physically attack most of the female students with no repercussions from their peers or administration. Our protagonist takes it upon herself inspired by her mom’s punk rebel teenage years to create a zine and bring the boys and administrations transgressions to light. Moxie is a very emotional film especially towards the end when the conflicts boil over. This movie is not for everyone but it is definitely a great film and worth a watch. Mike and Matt both agree it earns 3.5 out of 5 Reels.   

Next week is regrettably Matt’s turn. He chose a new streaming groundhog day like action film Boss Level currently on Hulu. It stars Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson. Thank you for supporting our podcast and we will chat at you next week.

Episode #211: Tributary - Coming 2 America

Episode #211: Tributary - Coming 2 America

March 10, 2021

Welp here we are again, another Wednesday and another nerdy podcast. This week the guys change things up with the 33 year old sequel no one asked for Coming 2 America starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall. Loosely connected topics include Samuel L. Jackson, Blade, and Mike and Matt right a wrong from last week’s podcast, sorry Swankie.

We are happy to report that Coming 2 America met and exceeded expectations. It was not a disaster of a film but a pretty decent fun comedy. Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are on point there is just not enough of them. The secondary story quickly becomes the main story line overshadowing Murphy and Hall’s characters. Leslie Jones and Wesley Snipes have some of the most memorable and hilarious performances of the film. Is this a must watch movie, no but it is a lot of fun. The original 1988 Coming to America is funnier on all levels but this sequel is a nice addition to the franchise. Mike clearly changed by becoming a father this past year gives the film 4 out of 5 Reels. Matt constantly evolving into a bitter old man awards Coming 2 America 2.5 out of 5 Reels. 

Next week it is Mike’s selection and he chose Amy Poehler’s latest Netflix Original drama comedy Moxie. Thank you for supporting our podcast and we will chat at you next week.

Episode #210: Nomadland

Episode #210: Nomadland

March 3, 2021

Hump day is finally here, that means it’s new Reel Film Nerds podcast day!  Today’s episode the gents chat about recent the Golden Globe winning film Nomadland starring Frances McDormand and real life nomads Swankie, Linda May, and Bob Wells. Not wandering across America in a van talk includes station wagons, taxes, and company owned towns.

Nomadland is a great film but it is not for everyone. It is an independent art house style movie with amazing acting and cinematography. The story can drag and be boring at times with the ending not having a clear concise wrap up. Frances McDormand is incredible as always but her co-stars the real life nomads push the acting over the top. They are genuine and heartfelt opening up to the viewer about their past and why they have chosen the nomad life. Mike with a near perfect score gives Nomadland 4.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt on the other hand thought this film was average at best giving it 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week Matt changes things up completely with a sequel comedy 33 years in the making. The Prime Video film Coming 2 America starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall. Thank you for supporting our podcast and we will chat at you next week.
