Ep 70 - Dunkirk

8/20/2017
More
Christopher Nolan has returned to cinema screens with his World War II epic - Dunkirk. Taking a break from the "genre filmmaking" of his last few releases, Nolan is presenting viewers with a fairly straightforward story, his approach to the filmmaking, however, is any but straightforward. Does this fast paced, almost silent film, live up to the high expectations for a Nolan release? Join Matt & Jon as they discuss their predictions and expectations for Dunkirk. Then - after the film has...

Ep 69 - Baby Driver

8/7/2017
More
Edgar Wright is back, baby. Both Jon and Matt are huge Wright fans, in fact his new action/musical hybrid Baby Driver was Matt's most anticipated film of 2017. So the stakes for this episode are high. Every film Wright has made has been a winner - zombies, cops, video games, alcoholism - he has successfully tackled them all, can he now add car chases to the list? Tune in to find out if Wright's winning streak can continue with Baby Driver. And if Matt will be blown away or crushed with...

Ep 68 - Wonder Woman

7/4/2017
More
The DC Cinematic Universe is back, this time with the origin story of Wonder Woman - the iconic hero who briefly popped up in the train wreck that was Batman Vs. Superman. Having failed at all previous attempts to replicate the success of Marvel, DC are taking things back to basics, focusing on a single character and hiring a talented and respected director to try and bring Wonder Woman to life. Will this be the film that saved DC? Or will this be another boring, slow motion filled, CGI...

Ep 67 - The Mummy

6/15/2017
More
Universal Pictures are trying to play cinematic universe catch-up with the reintroduction of their "Dark Universe" and the first film in its series The Mummy (They did already try with Dracula Untold, but that seems to have been swept under the rug) To help usher in this new franchise, Universal have managed to sweet talk Tom Cruise into a starring role in the horror-adventure film. I s there a chance this could be the beginning of a fun, horror themed set of films? Or are Universal...

Ep 66 - Alien: Covenant

5/31/2017
More
In this episode Jon and Matt are tackling the latest entry into one of the greatest Sci-Fi franchises of all time - Alien: Covenant. The guys are both big fans of the first two entries in the Alien series, but were very, very, underwhelmed with Ridley Scott's previous effort Prometheus. So this new film is a bit of a wild card. Will Alien: Covenant put the franchise back on track? Or are the guys going to, once again, be torn apart by bitter disappointment? Tune in to find out! Join Matt...

Bonus Ep - Raw

5/8/2017
More
In another bonus episode of The PrePost Film Review, Matt and Jon discuss the critically acclaimed French "horror" film Raw. The debut feature of director Julia Ducournau, Raw has been receiving high praise from those who have managed to catch its limited release. But is this coming-of-age horror story all that it's cracked up to be? Is there any meat on its bones? ***Apologies for the sound quality of Jons audio in this episode - due to some technical difficulties this is the clearest...

Ep 65 - The Great Dictator

4/23/2017
More
Join Jon and Matt on trip back to 1940, when war is raging, the world is in political turmoil and Charlie Chaplin has made his first "talkie" - a little film by the name of The Great Dictator. Both Jon and Matt are relatively new to Chaplin and are keen to check out what is often considered one of his best films in order to see what all the fuss is about. Will The Great Dictator live up to its reputation? Or are the guys on a war path with disappointment? Tune in to find out! Join Matt...

Ep 64 - Ghost in the Shell

4/16/2017
More
In this episode of PrePost the guys are doing something a little different. In preparation for the new Ghost in the Shell Hollywood remake starring Scarlett Johansson Jon and Matt have watched (or re-watched) the original 1995 anime on which it is based. Tune in to hear them chat not only about the trailer for the film, but also give a mini review of the original animated film before comparing it to the new blockbuster incarnation. Will this be another example of Hollywood butchering a...

Ep 63 - Kong: Skull Island

4/1/2017
More
In this episode of PrePost the guys jump in some helicopters and travel to Skull Island to talk about the new King Kong film. "Kong" as a character has an obvious place in cinema history and has remained relevant to audiences from his 1933 debut onwards. Both Matt and Jon were big fans of Peter Jacksons 2005 remake which managed to bring the giant ape to a whole new generation of films fans. Can Kong: Skull Island add to the mythos of Kong? Or does it actively detract from it? (Hint,...

Ep 62 - Logan

3/19/2017
More
In this episode of PrePost the guys dive into the new Wolverine film, or is it an X-Men movie? Both Jon and Matt were big fans of the last "stand alone" collaboration between Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold - The Wolverine - with the Logan trailer seeming to promise a continuation of this dramatic, characters based storytelling. Logan also raises the question, is it enough to just ratchet up the violence and brooding atmosphere in order to call a film "mature"? Join Matt & Jon...

Ep 61 - Silence

3/5/2017
More
In this episode of PrePost the guys dive into Scorsese's long awaited passion project Silence. Both Jon and Matt are big Scorsese fans and a new film from one of the masters of cinema is always an exciting event. However with Silence Scorsese seems to be moving away from his excessive, thrilling roots and exploring more subdued and serious themes of belief and religion. Will the guys love Scorsese's spiritual exploration as much as his violent examinations of masculinity? Tune in to find...

Ep 60 - Split

2/5/2017
More
Split marks the second film, after last years The Visit, in the unlikely mini-comeback that is seemingly being staged by director M. Night Shyamalan. Once a box office superstar Shyamalan has, in recent times, seemingly been forgotten. But the success of his previous small budget, found footage, horror film has put him back on the map. With The Visit being one of the few films that the guys did not agree on, will Split again spur a lively debate between Jon and Matt? Or is this a return...

Ep 59 - Jackie

1/28/2017
More
With the US political system dominating headlines at the moment, it seems appropriate that Pablo Larrain's film Jackie is in cinemas. A movie that seems to promise a larger than life performance from Natalie Portman, with themes of grief, legacy and power. Do all of these elements come together to form a compelling film? Join Matt & Jon as they discuss the trailer for Jackie. Then - after watching the full film - they return for an in depth review. 00:00:00 - Introductions 00:00:55 -...

More
In another bonus episode of The PrePost Film Review, Matt and Jon discuss the latest film from Whiplash director Damien Chazelle. The guys were huge fans of Whiplash back in 2014 (Episode 11 of the podcast!) so expectations were fairly high going into this one.

With Disney riding high on a series of outstanding animated feature films Jon and Matt spend this episode diving into their newest offering - Moana. Both of the guys are big Disney fans and have been impressed by the recent mini-renaissance the studio seems to be having. However - with high expectations it is also easy to be disappointed - will Moana be the film to break the winning streak? Tune in to find out!

Ep 56 - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

12/24/2016
More
The Disney Empire has bestowed their annual Star Wars film to us for 2016! This time around, it's Rogue One - the first standalone film in the franchise. Much like The Force Awakens before it, Rogue One has a lot to prove to fans. Can it effectively tell a story that doesn't involve Jedi? Will a different approach to it's cinematography and writing make it feel too distant from the other films? Can this "war film" also give us interesting characters we care about? You'll find the answers...

With Blue Velvet back in cinemas to celebrate its 30th anniversary what better time for Jon and Matt to look back and discuss one of Lynch's most iconic films. Jon, not having seen the Blue Velvet, will finally find out if the film deserves the reputation is has. And Matt, a big Lynch fan, will discover if the film is really as great as he remembers. Join Matt & Jon as they discuss the trailer for Blue Velvet. Then - after watching the full film - they return for an in depth...
