We’re baaaaccckkk!! Did you miss us? We missed you.
After a month off for summer vacation, with a side of illness, GBW returns with 22 films for your perusal. Chris checked out Jordan Peele’s NOPE, we have a duo of sequels to original films that are both classics (in their own way), Nicholas Cage takes on Lovecraft, radiation tainted marijuana messes up some high school kids, JJL makes a triumphant return to the show, Josh finally joins the cult of THREE O’CLOCK HIGH, a music festival brings out the worst in humanity, Dennis the Menace gets sleazy, and so much more!
Women unite! This episode of GBW features a slew of female protagonists who do things their way and don’t give an eff who gets in the way!
19 movies are covered this time including a noir classic, a comedy where rock meets wrestling, a dance competition that gets out of hand, a British prison break flick, Kevin Bacon going white water rafting yet again, a look at Oscar nominated THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD, the nuttiness that is FREEWAY II: CONFESSIONS OF A TRICKBABY, and so much more!
When humans mess with nature (or a certain day of the week), there can be consequences! And we have multiple examples of that this episode.
This time out we cover 17 films with a pissed off octopus, revisits to two classic 80’s comedies, Chris watched David Cronenberg’s latest CRIMES OF THE FUTURE, a snake wrangler doesn’t like his routine messed with, a teen TV movie delivers, we both checked out THE SADNESS, there’s some girl band Italian horror craziness, Elvis has left the building, and so much more!
Sometimes you go into a movie expecting more than you get and this episode has a bunch of examples of this.
We cover sixteen films this time out including Christopher Walken giving it his all, a serial killer film that fails to deliver, a duo of murderous siblings out for revenge, some beauty queens being kidnapped, a couple dealing with the aftermath of a missing child, Jason does NOT take Manhattan, Peter Fonda failing to deliver the goods, and so much more!
Somehow between the two of us we managed to watch six documentaries, hence this episode’s title. We watched real life stories about a wrestler, record stores, a Canadian rock band, and the world’s deadliest amusement park.
But that’s not all as we have a slew of fictional films to talk about as well. Chris checked out Robert Eggers’ latest THE NORTHMAN, we get a duo of decidedly different vampire films, Marc Singer somehow appears in two featured titles, cow meat is worth a fortune, Josh laments the Native American portrayals in 80’s movies, Chris gets annoyed yet again at another found footage flick, 1971’s WILLARD brings the rats, and so much more!
There’s a whole lot of “heroes” to talk about this episode over the 17 films covered but, don’t fret, not everyone talked about is a particularly good person.
David Hasselhoff and his pet cougar bust heads, Faye Dunaway sees murders as they happen, Chris checks out EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE, Josh finishes off the Rocky series, we get a martial arts movie bold enough to put a “1” in its title to promise a sequel, there’s a whole lot of TROUBLE MAN, we question/praise two Vinegar Syndrome releases, and so much more!
Welcome back to GBW where we serve up our takes on 19 more films that run the gamut from super dark, to ridiculous, to outright heartwarming.
This time we talk the recent releases THE BATMAN and X, a guy in a mangy ape suit terrorizes South Korea, there’s a rad fire tornado (I’m not making that up!), Josh continues his journey into film noir classics, we get an 80’s beach movie that skimps on all the essentials, we praise 1986’s REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS, Chris wonders about the placement on an ATM booth, Rutger Hauer loves him some feathered friends, James Caan drifts his way through a 70’s road trip caper, and so much more!
Put on your legwarmers, perform a ritual to make you immortal and hop on your motorbike as we journey through 18 new films on this episode.
This time we have an Oscar contender that leads to a huge rant/tangent, a look at what happens when blaxploitation meets a famous monster, proof that exercise leads to nothing but death, a biker movie with a difference, a 90’s crazy girl movie that delivers the goods, Ron Howard again driving recklessly, us questioning Michael Moore’s intentions, Leatherface’s newest killing spree, and so much more!
