Episode #283: Bullet Train

Happy hump day boys and girls! For today’s podcast, Episode 283, Mike and Matt chat about Davd Leitch’s latest film Bullet Train starring a ton of people but especially Brad Pitt. Not Pitt topics include a new giveaway, Stranger Things Season 4, and critics suck. What a fitting end or near end to the summer blockbuster season. Bullet Train rocketed out of nowhere and I am glad it did. It is a fun action packed assassin movie with a great story. Did we mention the cast yet? There are so many...


Episode #282: Tributary - The Gray Man

Welcome listeners new and old! For Episode #282 the guys sit down and chat about the Russo brother’s latest Netflix Original The Gray Man starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. Bonus topics today include abs, La-Z-Boys, and Man on Fire (2004). Netflix continues to put out big action films to compete with the traditional movie theater type studios. The Gray Man follows many of their leads with being a spy action thriller full of tropes and a lackluster story. This movie is long and drawn...

Welcome friends and neighbors to another episode of the Reel Film Nerds podcast. Today Mike and Matt chat about Jordan Peele’s latest thriller Nope starring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yeun. Off topics include a new Blu-ray giveaway, Mike is secretly 0069, and sky Jaws. Jordan Peele’s third film Nope is an unexpected sci-fi thriller that caught both of your hosts off guard.

It’s hump day baby, guess what that means? YES, yet another Reel Film Nerds incredible podcast movie review. For pod #280 Mike and Matt review a film from last October that they missed in theaters, Last Night in Soho. Not ghost story topics include MCU confusion, panhandling, and Better Call Saul. This is a unique horror film. It is a mystery, ghost story, haunted house, and time travel voyage all rolled into one. Last Night in Soho isn’t terrible but it isn’t earth shattering either. The...

Welcome back boys and girls to your regularly scheduled podcast. Today Matt and Mike chat about the second Marvel Cinematic Universe film of 2022, Thor: Love and Thunder. Not Viking space god topics include Slash, Barrio Brewing Company, and large noggins. Thor: Love and Thunder is a fine addition to the MCU, according to Mike. Matt found it to be just OK. He had much higher hopes for the film from the comedic genius Taika Waititi. The shining star of this film is Christian Bale as Gorr the...


Episode #278: Tributary - Hustle (2022)

Welcome everyone to a late Reel Film Nerds Podcast. Episode #278 is a few days late because of the holiday and Matt being out of town. It’s here now and the guys chat about a great new Netflix Original film Hustle (2022) starring Adam Sandler. Not basketball topics include fireworks, sleep drinking, and Independence Day. We will keep this short since the pod is already behind and your hosts want you to listen to it, not read about it. Hustle (2022) is a great film with stellar acting, an...

Not King related topics include In N Out Burger, Money Pit, and Rock and Roll class. The summer of 2022 is really strong with great films and Elvis (2022) is one of them.

For today’s 276th episode, Mike and Matt backtrack a bit and review a film from April 2022, The Northman starring Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, and Anya Taylor-Joy. Not Viking topics include being a freak, religion (I know they shouldn’t have), and sparkling water. Let's just get this out of the way right now, The Northman is not a film for everyone. It is a very well made action period revenge film with beautiful sets,...


Episode #275: Jurassic World: Dominion

Happy Wednesday fellow movie lovers! For today’s amazing podcast we review a not so amazing film, Jurassic World: Dominion. Non dinosaur related topics include Quake, MySpace, and Rammstein. Matt and Mike had really high hopes for Jurassic World: Dominion but they were quickly smashed after the first 5 minutes. Is Jurassic World: Dominion a bad film, yes. It is a blockbuster with tons and tons of action but one of the biggest let downs is the story, it’s just awful. One of the main plot...

Hello listeners and welcome back to our little pod! For today’s review Mike and Matt chat about the Amazon Original All the Old Knives. Not spy thriller topics include The Boys Season 3, Only Fans, and slinging tacos. Do you like spy thrillers loaded with twists and turns that are told completely by flashbacks?

What can we say about the 1980’s naval aviator classic that hasn’t been said before, not much as we found out in the pod. Top Gun is an amazing...


Episode #271: Firestarter (2022)

Welcome kiddos to the Reel Film Nerds Episode #271 not an MCU movie! Today Mike picked a remake of a Steven King novel and film Firestarter (2022) starring Zac Efron and Ryan Kiera Armstrong. Not telepathic fire related topics include beer-mosa, bullying, and Baywatch the Movie. Firestarter (2022) is a mediocre at best remake of a good thriller/horror film from 1984. The acting and chemistry between Zac Efron and Ryan Kiera Armstrong is fantastic but that’s about all this film has going for...

The month of April is quickly coming to a close and we are ending it with a bang. Today Matt and Mike discuss the sleeper Sci-Fi multiverse hit, Everything Everywhere All at Once. Not multiverse topics include potty training, generation gaps, and David Carradine. I am going to keep this one quick because it’s late and I don’t want to spoil too much of the pod or the film. Everything Everywhere All at Once is a very special film. It is creative, original, artistic, and has fantastic acting....


Episode #267: Tributary - Metal Lords

Happy 420 everyone! If Matt and Mike planned ahead they would have reviewed a stoner flick but they didn’t. Instead Matt picked a metal movie the Netflix Original Metal Lords. Not 420 topics include high school bullying, Roomba, and Big Trouble in Little China. Are you yearning for a metal based coming of age story? Then boy do we have a film for you! Metal Lords’ story is nothing special. It has been told over and over many times. A group of teenagers get together to form a band to compete...


Episode #266: Ambulance (2022)

Happy almost tax day everyone! Yes it’s the worst time of the year, enough about that, we are here to talk movies. Today Mike and Matt chat about the latest Bay Bang Ambulance (2022) starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza González. Not emergency vehicle related topics include FPV drones, Speed, and Mike falling asleep. Man was it nice to see a huge over the top action chase thriller on the big screen.

Additional topics include a new movie giveaway, the Sinister Six, and film drones. Well we have a rare but fun occurrence, Mike and Matt really do not agree on Morbius. Mike thinks it’s an adequate blockbuster style film that was enjoyable but not a must see. Matt on the other hand does not understand why this movie exists. He really did not...
