Episode #53: Harvest Horror Fest - Tusk

Welcome everyone to the kick off of what hopefully will become an annual event, the Reel Film Nerds’ Harvest Horror Fest!

They discuss the Sixth Sense, going to the bathroom during a movie, production...

Episode#48: The Predator

Welcome boys and girls to yet another podcast!!! Today Mike and Matt talk about a giant mess of a movie, The Predator directed by Shane Black.

Episode #42: Mile 22

Hi everybody! Today your hosts review Marky Mark’s latest action thriller Mile 22. It is a solid action film with a bad and over used storyline. The biggest shining light is Iko Uwais’ martial arts stunts. It is very reminiscent of the older martial arts films and is just a joy to watch. The guys pretty much stay on topic except Mike does bring up Moviepass and surprise, Matt actually used it to see Mile 22! YEAH!!! Using a service, he has paid for is a great thing. For the most part...


Episode #41: Legacy – Clerks

So Mike slacked off this week and did not do his homework so we will not be reviewing Mile 22, yet. He only made it to BlacKkKlansman. Matt did his homework so for once it is not his fault! Instead we bring you an incredible Legacy cast indie film that launched Kevin Smith’s career into the stratosphere, Clerks. As you already know if you are still listening to our podcast after 40 episodes we get off topic a lot. Here is the short list of things we talk about today. Russell Crowe’s codpiece...

We warn you many times so if you don’t want to hear it you...


Episode #38: The Meg

Welcome back fellow film nerds! Today Matt and Mike review a giant piece of crap that they do not understand why it is doing so well at the box office, The Meg. Things get off the rails fast! The guys start talking about baby names, online gaming in the early 90’s, and of course MoviePass. Mike mostly wanted to see if Matt had finally cancelled his subscription, nope!
