This Week: Your favorite movie reviewers and podcasts hosts are back! and ready to kick in to gear the summer movies of 2018. First they review Universal Studio's reboot "The Mummy" Audy thought it was a complete waste of Sofia Boutella's talents, while Elvin thought the Dark Universe is off to a miserable start. Then they review the summer movies thus far and try to pinpoint just why movies like Alien Covenant and Guardians of the Galaxy just failed short of expectations and why dumb ass movies like Baywatch and Pirates 5 still get greenlit. Afterwards, they review Wonder Woman. Elvin praises the film saying its the "purest superhero movie since the original Christopher Reeves Superman. Next the fellas discuss the promising news of Joss Whedon taking over the Justice League movie and the implications it has on the DC Universe movie forward and Lastly -- The fellas split on "It Comes at Night" Elvin thought the movie was one gigantic false advertisement from peviews to screen, whereas Audy really appreciated its accomplished masterwork on a small budget to achieve its psychological and symbolic scope convincingly.

This Week: The fellas are joined by special guest and resident horror movie critic Sulla Black from trashtuesday.com and Wolf Wheel Productions. First off the bat, all three hosts review the 2017 Best Picture Nominee, neo-noir western Hell or High Water starring Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Ben Foster. Audy gave it a Top 10 best film's of last year rating, while Elvin thought it was good but slow and Sulla just not feeling it as it derived too much off No Country For Old Men. Next, Sulla puts his foot up Hollywood's ass for its dire need to get political during award shows in his "The Hills Are Burning" Segment. Then the fellas review M. Night Shyamalan's Blumhouse Production collaboration horror film Split, starring James McAvoy. Elvin and Sulla liked it and claimed Shyamalan was back, while Audy thought it was another exercise of hack work direction of the nth degree! Lastly, Sulla and Audy, rave about Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi, human condition/alien case study Arrival starring Amy Adams. Audy gave it a Hell Yeah, another Top 10 picture, and Sulla gave it a rare 4 stars review!

This Week: Academy Awards nominations are LIT!!! The fellas are joined this week by guest co-host none other then the show's producer, Jessica Elliott aka Peety Draws, to talk about the Academy Award nominations. First Audy and Elvin review Kenneth Longeran's Best Picture Nominee Manchester By The Sea. Audy felt it was just "fine" like a slice of cheese pizza, saggy in its own misery, while Elvin thought its dry humor missed the mark. Next, the fellas try to decipher Ben Affleck's stepping down as director from Warner Brother's stand alone movie The Batman. Afterwards, Jessica comes on with the hosts to determine what all the La La Land hype is about, if it's overrated or really is good as it looks. Lastly, all three hosts breakdown the top six Academy Award categories (Best Actor/Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress, Best Director and Best Picture) and break down each by "Who should win, Who they want to win, and Who will the academy choose." 

 
Film Ratings 
 
Manchester by the Sea - 2 Stars "Hell No" Don't go see it

This week, Audy and Elvin dive right into the awards season and review three black prestige films that put #oscarssowhite on its ass! First, the fellas review the NASA biographical drama Hidden Figures. Both Audy and Elvin gave it a 3 Stars: Hell Yeah, but question the movie's merits on whether it's good enough to be nominated for Best Picture or not. Then they pay respects and pour an intergalactic 40oz out for Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and reflect on her legacy. Next, the fellas review Denzel Washington's Fences, and walk away amazed by its gripping, wrenching performances from its lead actors. After that, the fellas review Kevin Costner's performance in Hidden Figures and determine if he finally has earned his "Hood Pass." Lastly, your hosts split on Barry Jenkins, humanistic, coming of age, examination of sexual identity picture, Moonlight. Audy gave it a Hell Yeah, top 10 rating but Elvin was less enthused with its ambiguous emotional narrative.

This week Elvin is on vacation with the worst Wi-Fi in the history of free hotel rooms and Audy is battling the worst cold since Matt Damon in Contagion. They decided to overcome some technical difficulties and put together another great podcast for your listening pleasure. First the fellas review Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. While Audy praised the film from a character driven standpoint, Elvin was much less enthused but still rewarded the movie based upon its execution even though we already know how it ends. Following Assassin's Creed horrible box office performance, the hosts try to theorize on exactly why "videogames can't get their shit together" when it comes to film adaption. And lastly, they end the podcast with a review of the star-driven Sci-Fi, space romance thriller, Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - 3 Stars "Hell Yeah" go see it 
Passengers - 1.5 "Hell No" don't go see it
