Episode 184: Attack of the Docs

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!

Episode 183: Hero Worship

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!

Episode 182: More Dark Than Light

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!

Episode 181: Film-A-Mania!

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 haveĀ 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!

Episode 180: Our Band Rules

Ready to jam?

This time out we somehow talk about five(!) films involving music, Lorenzo Lamas sports a ponytail and kicks some ass, Josh questions a kid’s mental stability, Chris talks about an obscure TV movie that rips off RANSOM, Neal Israel makes a return to the show, Jessica Chastain and Jared Leto both give transformative performances, PSYCHO GOREMAN makes an appearance and so much more!

Episode 179: You Got Your Noir in My Giallo!

Welcome back to the film review podcast where everything and anything goes!

We have 19 entries to talk about this time including some female arm wrestling, Gene Hackman getting caught behind enemy lines in Vietnam, a duo of noir films, a penis transplant, Dean Cameron as a not-so-rocking vampire, beauty pageant nuttiness with Bruce Dern, a slasher in a movie theatre, a second opinion on TITANE and so much more!

Episode 178: Guns, Lions & Mausoleum… Oh My!

If you would’ve told us that between episodes we’d watch some movies that are so over-the-top and bizarre, we’d possibly have called you a liar – but, no, we did just that!

This time out we have Sylvester Stallone donning some cool shades, a group of teens desperately trying to see The Beatles, a hot air balloon movie that asks you to “float” (it’ll all make sense, trust us), one of the craziest and irresponsible animal films EVER made, a stone-cold noir classic, a 1983 horror flick that delivers the over-the-top goods, Josh finishing off the H.G. Lewis box set, Chris checking out Sean Baker’s latest RED ROCKET, and so much more!

Episode 177: Sad Explosions

This episode it’s a literal explosion of sadness and, well, explosions, as we dive into twenty more films.

We continue on Josh’s journey through the H.G. Lewis box set, completely understand why Fred Dryer didn’t become an action star in the 80’s, get lost in the world of John Waters, see Jason Statham track down a cop killer, discover the 70’s western THE HUNTING PARTY, try to understand survivalists, revisit the original MAD MAX, and so much more!

Episode 176: Wizards! Aliens! Cat Juice!

Hey! It’s 2022! Here’s our first episode of this new year and it’s quite a mixed batch of films (almost twenty, in fact) which is why this show’s title makes no sense out-of-context.

In tribute to the recently passed Sidney Poitier, we cover two of his films (one a classic, the other not-so-much. Josh revisits a remake which gets way more talking time than it probably deserves, Crispin Glover shocks absolutely nobody by being weird, Olivia Colman turns in another great performance in THE LOST DAUGHTER, a woman is chainsawed in half, we look at a crazy vanity project, Chris crosses another “should have already seen” film off his list, we talk a duo of French films and so much more!

Episode 175: Digging 2021’s Grave

Let’s be completely honest with each other here. 2021 kind of sucked. It’s time to say goodbye to another COVID riddled year and hope 2022 is better. We’ll always have movies, though!

For the last GBW of ’21 we’ve got quite a batch of films for you (over 20, in fact!) including possibly the only foosball movie in existence, a look at P.T. Anderson’s return to the 70’s LICORICE PIZZA, we praise Andy Sidaris and his L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies, Eric Stoltz goes on the run after murdering his father, Julia Ducournau earns her ‘visionary’ title with TITANE, Aubrey Plaza gets super weird out in cottage country, New York graffiti artists get their due, Tom Selleck proves to be a worthy western hero, Chuck Norris takes on a serial killer, and so much more!
