Money Plane (2020)- Movie Review - Episode 237

5/6/2022
After a bit of a break, we are back with a brand new episode. And after our foray into high cinema with last episode's extensive review of "The Batman". We figured we had to follow up such a high mark in cinema with a complete turd of a movie. Kinda like having your delicious taco bell then suffering for it about an hour or so later. And boy of boy do we have a stinker this week. What happens when you combine a bunch of c list actors with Kelsey Grammer, The Laurence Brothers, and Edge fro...

4/5/2022
This week, Brian and John don't just emerge from the shadows, they are the shadows.....well not quite. More like they emerged from the shadows of a movie theater with smilex gas grins across their faces after seeing Matt Reeves' "The Batman". Fair warning, this review does contain some spoilers. So if you have yet to see the film, please check it out first. But with this being the 3rd batman to be introduced in less than 20 years, does this version of the caped crusader hold up against the...

This week, we are back with a long long long overdue breakdown of the year that was 2021.

3/8/2022
This week, we are still stuck in the bowels of The Matrix. This time we are jacking in to the entire storied trilogy with a specific question driving us,"How can a franchise go from being a perfect summation of late 90's cyber punk culture to laughable meme?"

The Matrix Resurrections - Movie Review - Episode 232

2/9/2022
This week, we are jacking in "hehe" back into the world of kung fu and bullet-time with a long awaited review of The Matrix Resurrections. A movie that no one really asked for that arrived 20 years too late in the middle of a pandemic and oh yea....as part of the rooster of HBO Max movies that has had it's theatrical revenue undercut by streaming. But aside from all those things in "the real world" going against it, what about the movie itself? Does The Matrix Resurrections live up to the...

Spiderman: No Way Home - Movie Review - Episode 231

1/24/2022
This week, we are back from the multiverse of franchise madness and boy oh boy do we have a doozey of an episode to you with our review of Spiderman: No Way Home. A movie that has proved to be one of the biggest films since Avengers: Endgame and one of the most buzz worthy films in recent years. Literally all of 2021 was a combination of news on the pandemic and rumors and leaks about just how many spidermen would be in Spiderman: No Way Home. But does a movie with that much buzz actually...

Happy New Year Psychos Nation! It's been a hell of a 2021 and we are hopeful that 2022 just sucks a little bit less than last year. So to kick off 2022, we are celebrating by reviewing probably one of the only slasher films that tackle New Years Eve; 1980's New Years Evil.

Dune (1984) - Movie Review - Episode 227

11/26/2021
This week, Brian and John travel to the year 10191 the the world of Dune. Being that Denis Villeneuve's masterpiece was recently released on HBO Max and theaters to rave reviews and serving as a visual effects schmorgasborg, we thought that instead of do a review on that movie that we take a look at the bizarre and hard to understand 1984, David Lynch version that gave us such wonderful moments like Sting in a triangle cod piece, Sir Patrick Stewart discussing that moods are for "cattle and...

Hellraiser (1987) - Movie Review - Episode 226

11/15/2021
This week, Brian and John are explorers in the further reaches of experience as we take a trip back to the year 1987 and review a film that serves as a perfect fit between this gap of time between Halloween and Thanksgiving; Clive Barker's Hellraiser. A movie that is equal parts family drama (just like thanksgiving) and sadomascistic demons from beyond the grave.....see I told you it works for both holidays. Hellraiser was a film that stuck out from the masked killers and dream demons from...

What happens when nostalgia for a horror book series from the 90's collides with a streaming giant with an insatiable appetite for content....you get the 3 part extravaganza, FEAR STREET! As we come down from the halloween highs, Brian and Laine felt it was a good idea to take a deep look at this series that manages to on one hand bring a good amount of gore and decent characters to life, but at the same time anger and confuse Brian due to a lack of attention to detail or following the...

Spookies (1986) - Movie Review - Episode 224

10/20/2021
This week, we are rolling out the perfect trick (or treat depending on how much you like this movie) with a trip back in time to the 80's.....we're not sure the year because the little gem of a movie we are reviewing may have been shot in 1984, 1985, and then released in 1986, 1987, and 1988. The movie is the mutant mish mash that is SPOOKIES! A movie you probably remember bits of pieces from during those late nights on TNT's Monster-Vision or USA's Up-All-Night from the 90's but never...

This week, Brian and John break down the life and career of the king of the parody film.....No not the Zucker's and no not Naked Gun or Airplane. We are instead talking about Mel Brooks. A man who has helped shape comedy (and film history) with his fantastic wit in his ability to write and punch up scripts for TV, his parody films knocking everything from the western all the way to parodies of Dracula and Frankenstein, and funding and producing films that transcend cinema with credits for...

This week, we are back after a brief hiatus dropping one of our most introspective episodes to date. Most of us have a deep down love of terrible cinema. It's the demented gremlin cousin of the part of you that laudes the best director or best film of the year. Deep down, we all love to watch an awesomely bad film.

Batman and Robin (1997): The "Wacky Deli" of Superhero Movies - Episode 220

8/29/2021
This week's episode is 220 episodes in the making. This week, we are closing out our long running review of the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Original Batman Series with 1997's Batman and Robin. What is truly amazing about this cluster of neon, terrible acting, terrible story, puns, and camp galore is that this movie was the fear that fan boys had back in 1988 when Michael Keaton, at the time knkown for comedic roles, was cast. A fear that Batman would return to the ridiculous and over the top...
