Episode 146 (Universal Soldier)

The #1 ranked podcast on Ranker’s “Best Movie Podcast” list is back! This week we’re talking about the 1992 somewhat classic Universal Soldier. It is a dorky little movie that features reanimated super soldiers played by Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren battling each other in Vietnam, Utah and Louisiana. What we love most about Universal Soldier is how it plays like an action film that met a horror film and threw in a lot of spin kicks. The best part about this movie is Dolph...


Episode 145 (Resident Evil: Retribution)

The #1 ranked podcast on Ranker’s “Best Movie Podcast” list is back! This week we are talking about Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth entry in the Resident Evil series and quite possibly the best. Director Paul W.S. Anderson was finally given a decent budget of $65 million and he does a great job of showing every cent of it onscreen. Which means the CGI is better, the sets are legit, and there is more of everything (two Executioners!!!) for Alice and her cohorts to kill. If you haven't...


Episode 144 (The Best Romantic Comedies of 2018 - So Far)

The #1 ranked podcast on Ranker's "Best Movie Podcast" list is back! This week we're talking about the fantastic 2018 romantic comedies Crazy Rich Asians, Set it Up, To All The Boys I've Loved Before, and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. 2018 has been loaded with great romantic comedies and we couldn't wait to talk about the genre revitalizing movies like Set it Up, that may or may not feature the greatest scene involving pizza ever. I love these four films, so I did a ton of research and...


Episode 143 (Resident Evil: Afterlife)

In part 4 of our Resident Evil Franchise Review series we discuss Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) as the franchise samples The Matrix (1999) and Blade II (2002), Milla Jovovich leads an army of leather-clad ninja Jovo-clones in some of the best action of the franchise, our zombies are not just smarter and faster but can read blueprints, and Wesker goes full bullet-dodging Agent Smith in the final battle. As we answer Listener Questions we explore Milla's acting chops, the staying power of...


Episode 142 (Resident Evil: Extinction)

In part 3 of our Resident Evil Franchise Review series we discuss Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) as the franchise goes Fury Road-lite, Milla Jovovich's action scenes get dialed up, we learn who not to trust in a world of dubiously infected heroes and behaviorally modified zombies (oh, and diminishing cigarette supplies), and we enjoy the best "final boss" of the franchise so far. As we answer some inspired Listener Questions we explore various aspects of evil residency-based tuition rates,...


Episode 141 (The Meg)

Mark and Robert talk about the The Meg and ponder why Jason Statham didn't throw any spin kicks in it. If you are a fan of shark cinema, you will love this podcast because it covers The Meg, The Shallows, Jaws: The Revenge, and several other B-movie classics that feature underwater mayhem. Enjoy!


Episode 140 (Resident Evil: Apocalypse)

This week we discuss Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004), Milla Jovovich's motorcycle-jumping and dumpster-diving stunts, the big slow ugly hulking menace that is the Nemesis Program, and wardrobe trends among the ass-kicking heroes of film. As we answer some inspired Listener Questions we explore other major action franchises' tank top wardrobing trends, a few nods to iconic zombie cinema, and the deviation of films from its video game source material.


Episode 139 (Resident Evil)

Mark and John talk about 2002's Resident Evil and get ready to do a deep-dive into the entire franchise. Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil series is an odd outlier in the Hollywood system, and it's been fun to watch as Milla Jovovich's Alice character has evolved from a buttkicking hero into an ultimate badass who gets stuck in very uncomfortable outfits. If you are looking for a podcast episode that covers every aspect of 2002's Resident Evil (even the Blu-ray commentaries) you've come to...


Episode 138 (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets)

Mark, John and Megan discuss the amazing Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. If you are looking for a massive science fiction film that features 300+ aliens, huge set pieces and Cara Delevingne sticking her head into a jellyfish's butt you will love this movie. Luc Besson was given $177 million to make his dream project and he used every cent to create this underappreciated gem. Every cent of the $177 is seen onscreen and there are some truly jaw-dropping moments that showcase why...


Episode 137 (Free Fire)

Mark and Megan discuss Ben Wheatley's gunfight classic Free Fire. If you haven't watched Free Fire you need to immediately check it out because it's loaded with fantastic action, dialogue and actors. It's an absolute blast that features A-list talent like Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillain Murphy, Jack Reynor, Sam Riley and Sharlto Copley. Also, Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Down Terrace, Kill List, A Field in England) is one of the most interesting directors working today and hopefully this...


Episode 136 (The Cornetto Trilogy)

Mark and Robert discuss the greatest trilogy of films to ever be tied together by an ice cream cone. Director/writer Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pulled their talents together and created a fan-favorite trilogy of movies that feature zombies, rural cops, and a pub crawl to end all pub crawls. These movies are endlessly rewatchable and feature some of the funniest 21st-century gags (WTF!) that get funnier once you learn how much work went into crafting them. In this podcast, you...


Episode 135 (The Happening)

Mark and John talk about M. Night Shyamalan's B-movie classic 'The Happening.' They discuss alternate timelines, lemon drinks and Mark Wahlberg giving an A+ effort in his quest to convincingly play a science teacher. If you are looking for some 'The Happening' hate you've come to the wrong place because they love the movie, and think Shyamalan knew exactly what he was doing when he plotted everything out. Enjoy!


Episode 134 (Fright Night (1985) vs. Fright Night (2011) Part Two)

Last week Mark and John discussed Tom Holland's Fright Night (1985) and the documentary of the making of the film (You're So Cool, Brewster). This week they explore the merits of the Fright Night (2011) remake, CGI versus iconography, and its dynamite cast. They address why was there no Billy Cole or wolf form, modernized characters and David Tennant's new spin on Peter Vincent, vampire turning farms, and what would happen if Green Room (2015) and From Dusk til Dawn (1996) crossed paths as...


Episode 133 (Fright Night (1985) vs. Fright Night (2011) Part One)

Mark and John discuss Tom Holland's Fright Night (1985), a contemporary vampire film that is loaded with gooey practical special effects and humor; and discuss the documentary of the making of Fright Night (1985) (You're So Cool, Brewster), covering the inspirational behind-the-scenes story of the film. On their banterous journey, they muse the best (i.e., favorite) vampire films, the role of Billy Cole (and what he actually is), and the wonderfully charming vampire neighbor Jerry. Next week...


Episode 132 (Upgrade)

Mark and John discuss the techno-thriller Upgrade (2018), Leigh Whannell's wondrous writing, and brutal tech-marionetted fight scenes! They also muse about whether or not this is a contemporary exploitation movie, what kinds of projects they'd love to see Whannell pursue next, the motives behind STEM, and possible sequel plots. Enjoy!


Episode 131 (Solo)

Mark and John discuss the Star Wars prequel Solo and wonder how giant space monsters feed themselves. If you are a fan of the Star Wars world and like podcasts that get incredibly nerdy about it, you will love this episode. You will hear about spoilers, cameos, Easter eggs and all the behind the scenes drama that happened before the movie hit the screens. Enjoy!


Episode 130 (Deadpool 2)

This week we’re talking about Deadpool 2 and its abundance of sh*t-spackled-muppet-farts. If you are looking for a movie that features wholesale murder, bodies ripped apart and a very lucky hero named Domino, you are in luck! Deadpool 2 is an absolute blast that does a great job building off the original and expanding its world to include the derivative X-Force and time travel. In this podcast, we will be going really deep into spoiler territory and we've done our research to make sure any...


Episode 129 (The Babysitter)

This week we discuss The Babysitter (2017), McG's crisply dazzling Netflix Original horror-comedy that delivers all the lovably fun characters and pop culture of Charlie's Angels (2000) with all the laughably blood-in-the-face spewing gore of Sam Raimi. We explore such notions as truly testing Liam Neeson's special set of skills (Taken 1-3), how inconsiderate it was for Forrest Gump (1994) to eat Jenny's chocolates, whether Bee (Samara Weaving) is actually "evil" and how old she might be,...


Episode 128 (A Cure for Wellness)

This week we discuss A Cure for Wellness (2016), Gore Verbinski's ambitious and gorgeous film intermixing The Road to Wellville (1994) and Shutter Island (2010) with a dash of Frankenstein (1931). We explore how over-eating could defeat James Bond, along with the moral sensibilities of this film (and how you shouldn't watch this with your mother), the link between eel-swallowing and mind control, the occasional impracticality of "obsession laboratory" lair architecture, and the stylings of...


Episode 127 (Avengers: Infinity War)

Mark and John discuss Avengers: Infinity War and ponder what will happen next in Marvel Cinematic Universe. They also answer MCU listener questions and ponder if Thanos eats half of everyone's food, and how he became such a technical boxer who can outstrike anyone in the universe. If you are a fan of the MCU you will love this episode of MFF. Enjoy!
