9/17/2017
More
IT is here, and with the killer clown movie bringing the box office back to undead life, we’ve got lots to discuss on the first MovieFilm of the fall as we pick apart the horrific Stephen King adaptation and whether it measures up to the famous 1990 TV adaptation! But while Pennywise is our main topic, we’d be pound foolish if we didn’t also discuss this week’s new release American Assassin, and talk about the latest headlines out of Hollywood, including Liam Neeson announcing his...

Labor Day has come and gone, and with it summer movie season! As is our annual tradition, the MovieFilm boys reconvene after the long weekend to look back at the past several months of high profile blockbusters, all-ages animated films, and low budget indies. From Fate of the Furious to Dunkirk -- with plenty of pit stops in-between -- we take stock of what worked and what didn't.

8/30/2017
More
After watching Batman & Robin a few weeks ago, you'd think there was no further we could fall, but Superman IV: The Quest For Peace is here to say, “Hold my beer.” That's right, the MovieFilm boys have a commentary to mark the Man of Steel’s 1987 franchise-killer hitting its thirtieth anniversary last month. Come don your nostalgia-tinted glasses with us and see if they're enough to dull the pain of Christopher Reeve’s ignominious farewell to his most iconic role. Listen in as we go...

8/4/2017
More
After more than ten years in development, Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has finally come to movie screens, and the MovieFilm boys are here to offer their takes on the would-be franchise-starter from Sony Pictures.

But that’s not all! We also talk the upcoming TV series sequel to 1980s classic The Karate...

The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Planet of the Apes (2001)

7/2/2017
More
With the impending release of Fox's much-anticipated three-quel War For the Planet of the Apes, Brian and Zaki decided this was a perfect time to revisit the misbegotten Planet of the Apes "re-imagining" from 2001 directed by Tim Burton and starring Mark Wahlberg. We discuss the project's long road to the screen, including the many notable filmmakers like Peter Jackson and James Cameron whose abortive attempts at reviving the Apes brand never made it to the screen, and also why the movie...

The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Batman & Robin

6/18/2017
More
Holy trainwreck! This week marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most fascinating misfires in movie history, Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin. The film’s less-than-stellar box office reception in summer of ‘97 marked the end of the Dark Knight’s first movie series, and in the years since has become a fascinating case study for how studios can kill their golden goose franchises. With that in mind, Brian and Zaki have used the occasion to dive in for a feature-length commentary track as...
