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.
It’s our end of the year extravaganza! We’re going to talk about our top 5 favorite movies of 2016 and give away some special awards! But let’s not forget LCD’s Cinema Sodomy as he reviews Brown Bunny and listen as we also discuss David Fincher’s memorable film, Fight Club. It’s an EXTRAVAGANZA!!!
LCD here, and I’m really pumped about this new project I’m working on. Let me tell you about it. If you listened to Episode 6 of the ReelFriction Podcast (and you really, really should have by now), you know that I have taken it upon myself to view and talk about the people who really got me into movies in the first place: the great action heroes of the 1980s.
Christine, based on a true story, covers the final weeks of TV news reporter Christine Chubbuck’s life leading up to her live-on-television suicide in 1974. Rebecca Hall plays the titular character well, showing her professional and personal problems that may have led to that fateful decision.
This week, Z let’s everyone know just what she thinks of David Lynch’s Inland Empire, we begin to take on David Fincher in our Filmmakers Corner, we talk about our film resolutions for the coming year, and as always we have our Pop Quiz.
Herzog’s documentary on connective technology feels capricious, only tangentially sticking to the timeline it tries to explore: the birth of the internet to the future of what it might become. The film varies scene to scene from flighty and amusing to unsettling and profound. It’s at times self-indulgent, at times brilliant, but all too much the former.
