With the Terminator series behind us, we head back to a galaxy far, far away to catch up on the second season of The Mandalorian.
In this episode we talk about the first four Chapters of Season 2.
Another excellent season of Star Wars television that might even improve on the first one.
April 19, 2021
This week we wrap up our exploration of the Terminator series with Tim Miller's Dark Fate. While its the best film in the series since Judgement Day, does that mean its actually a great addition, or is it damning with faint praise?
March 23, 2021
Gabe and James try and make sense of Alan Taylor's to reboot the series. Genesys is a messy and bland film that fails to capture what's great about the series at nearly every point.
March 9, 2021
We head into the future war to talk about McG's addition to the series. While Salvation brings impressive visuals and excellent action, it suffers in the substance department.
February 22, 2021
Gabe and James discuss about the third Terminator film. A definite step down for the series, despite a few stand-out elements.
February 9, 2021
Gabe and James take a quick break from the Terminator series to talk about the films of 2020. A rather disappointing year for movies. But there are still some wonderful gems that are well worth celebrating.
January 19, 2021
Gabe and James talk about one of the greatest action films of all time. Quite possibly James Cameron's magnum opus, Judgement Day is every bit as entertaining and mind-blowing today as the day it was released.
December 30, 2020
We start a new franchise with James Cameron's ground-breaking Sci-Fi action thriller, The Terminator. While its sequel tends to dominate the conversation, this tight, brutal low-budget actioner still delivers on every level today.
December 10, 2020
We wrap up our journey through the Bourne series with the highly anticipated and equally disappointing return of Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass to the franchise.
November 23, 2020
Gabe and James record in person to discuss the ill-fated attempt to spin off the Bourne series with Jeremy Renner.
A film that is not without its qualities, The Bourne Legacy nonetheless fails to capture what made previous entries so unique and exciting.
November 11, 2020
James made Gabe watch one of his favorite horror films.
November 3, 2020
Gabe and James get together in person to talk about one of the greatest horror films of all time.
And as usual for our show, the October horror reviews are going up in November!
October 20, 2020
This week we talk about the original finale for the Bourne Trilogy. The Bourne Ultimatum is an exhilarating action film that takes everything we love about the series and brings it to the next level.
October 8, 2020
In this episode we are again joined by our friend Sam Dodson to talk about Paul Greengrass' introduction to mainstream audiences with the 2nd chapter of the Bourne saga. The Bourne Supremacy is a focused and relentless thriller that has kept its edge over the years, despite constant bad imitations of its signature style.
September 24, 2020
This week we begin exploring one of the most influential action franchise of the 2000s.
Doug Liman's The Bourne Identity is a fantastic thriller that added a whole new level of realism and intensity to the genre.
September 8, 2020
With James back, we finally finish playing catch up with franchise installments released while we were in the MCU with the already forgotten Men in Black: International.
A film who's troubled production is far more interesting than anything that happens in it. Which is a tragedy considering its two fantastic lead actors.
August 31, 2020
This week we wrap up The Hire series with Neill Blomkamp's installment, The Escape.
Its not the best of them, but its a lot of fun, featuring a very scary Jon Bernthal.
You can watch The Escape on YouTube...
August 27, 2020
Here we talk about Tony Scott's absolutely wild installment featuring James Brown and a wonderful Gary Oldman as The Devil.
You can watch Beat The Devil on YouTube...
August 23, 2020
This week James makes his triumphant return to the show! We discuss Joe Carnahan's excellent installment, Ticker. And James gives us his thoughts on all the previous shorts.
You can watch Ticker on YouTube...
July 22, 2020
In this minisode Gabe continues his solo drive through BMW's The Hire series with Ang Lee's chapter, Chosen.
A graceful, beautifully crafted short, this one might just be the best in the whole series.
July 2, 2020
This week we finally catch up with Star Wars with the final 10 episodes of Resistance Season 2.
After a somewhat rocky first half of the season, the show finds its stride and delivers many of its best episodes yet in its final run.
June 17, 2020
This week we head back to The Colossus to talk about the 2nd season of Star Wars Resistance. A show that didn't make much of an impact, but is still a very enjoyable addition to a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
June 10, 2020
This week we take a quick Detour between Star Wars TV shows to talk about Rian Johnson's fabulous 2019 mystery caper, Knives Out.
A perfect film brimming with creativity, wit and wonderful characters. Johnson has once again proven himself to be one of the most exciting filmmakers working today.
May 30, 2020
This week we explore the epic and long-awaited ending to one of the greatest pieces of Star Wars storytelling ever made.
Like the show that came before, not all of the episodes were amazing. But we still got several of the best episodes this show has ever had, and finally a deeply satisfying conclusion to the beloved show.
May 21, 2020
We're doing something very different from usual this week. Here Gabe and James will each be taking a shot at "fixing" The Rise of Skywalker. We've spent the last couple weeks coming up with story treatments that we hope fix a lot of the issues in the film, as well as make it fit better alongside the previous two films in the Sequel Trilogy.
They're probably both terrible, but it was a lot of fun!
May 16, 2020
This week we finally dive into the monumental conclusion to the Sequel Trilogy and the Skywalker Saga. A massive, ambitious and baffling film that's equal parts disappointing and thrilling.
In one of our longest episodes on a single film, we explore this film from every angle. Hashing out what didn't work, but also reveling in all the thing it did get right as well.
April 30, 2020
This week we talk about the second half of The Mandalorian's first season. Four episodes that are just as good, if not better than the previous ones.
April 23, 2020
This week we go back to a Galaxy Far, Far Away with the first half of our two-parter on season 1 of The Mandalorian.
The first live-action TV show in the Star Wars universe, Jon Favreau's love letter to the Western genre was somehow able to unite the entire fandom in its praise.
April 16, 2020
This week we are introducing a new series with Franchise Detours. Wherein in between series we will talk about any film we please. Starting this week with Taika Waititi's beautiful 2019 film, Jojo Rabbit.
March 27, 2020
This week we wrap up the Toy Story franchise once again with the latest installment, Toy Story 4.
A sequel deemed by many to be unnecessary, it still manages to bring the emotional heft and wit we all expect from the series.
March 15, 2020
Toy Story of Terror was fun, but this right here is the real deal. This TV Special is a total blast of wacky Toy Story fun from beginning to end.
March 12, 2020
With the MCU finally behind us, we're taking a few weeks to catch up on some series that have put out chapters over the last 6 months. Starting with the Toy Story series and the TV specials Pixar put out shortly after Toy Story 3.
In this minisode we discuss Toy Story of Terror, Pixar's send-up of the horror genre starring everyone's favorite toys!
March 6, 2020
This week we complete our epic journey through the films of the MCU with Spider-Man: Far From Home.
With this movie we have yet another fun and charming chapter for the character. It may not fully reach its potential, but its a good time nonetheless.
February 22, 2020
This week we dive into the epic culmination of the first 10 years of the MCU with Avengers: Endgame!
February 5, 2020
This week we explore the MCU's first female-led movie with Captain Marvel. A film that inspired massive controversies before its release, that were only matched by its runaway financial success.
Was it worthy of either? Not really.
January 29, 2020
This week we take yet another short break from the MCU to talk about the films of 2019.
January 22, 2020
Back to the MCU this week, we move from the grim depression of Infinity War, back to the low-key, delightful quirkiness of the Ant-Man series!
