I am definitely aging myself when I tell you that some of my fondest childhood memories were staying up way past my bedtime and catching some weird movie on one of the local channels at 2am or finding a weird VHS tape to rent at West Coast Video.
Hello and welcome to the REELfriction podcast! This week we continue to torture Lab Rat by making him review the Julianne Hough vehicle Rock of Ages in Cinema Sodomy, but we also make it up to him by discussing two of his favorite film (Gravity and 12 Angry Men) in his magical cinema laboratory. For our main topic, we talk about how visuals in film can affect us and make us feel feelings and, as always, we end with our pop quiz.
USA, 2017, Erin Lee Carr, 82 min. If you were to scroll through the list of podcasts that I listen to, you would notice something. Amidst all of the gaming, movie and old time radio[…]
Mild-mannered man Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) becomes a local hero through an act of violence, which brings to light aspects of his past that will shake his family to its very core.
That is the easy way to describe this movie.
I’m not going to lie. I had a hard time beginning this review. I mean, how does one begin to describe Howard the Duck?
Guy Ritchie’s re-imagining of the King Arthur legend gets a lot more right than it does wrong. In fact, the ratio tips so far towards the positive that this really good film almost becomes excellent.
Well everyone, we’ve finally made it! The ReelFriction Crew has watched Alien: Covenant and we’re ready to let you know what we thought about it!
Hey there Friction fans! Episode 15 is upon us and it’s going to rock your socks off! LCD let’s us know our thoughts on John Waters’ Pink Flamingos, we FINALLY finish talking about Ridley Scott, and in our main topic we discuss how Filmmaker’s Corner has changed our views on how we see directors and their crafts.
3/4’s of the ReelFriction crew are riding high after Exhumed Films 12 hour exploitation fest so we wanted to dedicate this episode to all things exploitation!
This podcast is based on a true story. The true story of how four friends discuss what they watched recently, make fun of a loser as he reviews a children’s movie no one asked for, discuss the next four films of Ridley Scott and end with a pop quiz that is inspired by true events.
We’re feeling a little Pride and Prejudice today here at ReelFriction. Well….mostly just the Prejudice part. But before we can get to that LCD will grace us with his review of The Peanut Butter Solution in Cinema Sodomy, and we’ll continue talking about Ridley Scott’s movies in Filmmaker’s Corner.
What it is Frictionheads?! (Is that a thing? Well it is now!) This week we bring you some great content! Like Lab Rat’s review of Safe Haven in Cinema Sodomy. And the first of our discussions on Ridley Scott in our Filmmaker’s Corner. In the Main Segment this week, we’re going to discuss strong females in movies and as always, we have our pop quiz.
Guys, we’re finally in double digits! See what Z thinks about Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life. A lot guys, it’s a lot. Then we talk about Craig Brewer in Filmmaker’s Corner and we answer the all important question: Is it really hard out here for a Pimp? In the Main Segment we tackle the discussion of whether or not you can separate the film from the filmmaker or actor and we we continue the topic of controversial cinema in our Pop Quiz.
This week’s episode is Oscar-centric! The Cinesthete is feeling alright alright alright about Fool’s Gold, and we finish our conversation on David Fincher. Then we talk about our thoughts on the good, the bad, and the ugly about the Oscars. As always, we’ll finish this week with an Oscar themed pop quiz.
I would like to apologize for missing last week. I don’t have a real reason other than this movie really sucked (more on that momentarily) and I couldn’t get motivated to write anything about it.
Love is in the air this week! We find Lab Rat and Theodore Rex sittin’ in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. We continue our conversation on David Fincher in Filmmakers Corner, talk about what makes a good romantic movie in our main topic and, as always, finish with our Valentine’s Day themed pop quiz.
I grew up being fed a constant stream of testosterone filled explosionfests at an early age which is why I’m awesome and TC, the Labrat and Z are not. I mean, there are probably other reasons as well, but I’m not a doctor qualified in such diagnoses and I really don’t care much about the underlying reasons for their lameness.
It’s always hard to choose a top 10 list at the end of a year. There are so many factors that go into picking a list that at some points it would just be easier to throw darts. 2016 had so many great movies, and not all of them may have been on people’s radar.
Our second installment of Bond finds him going up against the Russians in From Russia With Love. Again, I’m less familiar with the Connery Bond films, only having seen them a few times, but this movie was much better than I remembered. Where Dr. No had slow plodding moments, From Russia With Love was slicker and a far more exciting installment of the Bond series.
In this installment of Action Movie Mondays, I’ll be covering the entire Conan saga from Conan the Barbarian to Conan the Destroyer and including Red Sonja. What’s that you say? Red Sonja isn’t a Conan movie? Fun fact number one:[…]
2016 looked to be a sad year for film, but then something happened around October. The new releases just kept getting better and better. It turned out to be one of my favorite film years in recent memory.
