The gang’s all here! Eric returns to talk Star Trek Into Darkness with Trevan and Trey. Is J.J. Abrams’ follow-up a worthy successor and contender for this summer’s box office crown? Or does it aim wide? And did Eric take any pictures of his vacation? The answers to all of these questions and more will be revealed.
Star Trek Into Darkness outdoes the 2009 reboot in every way.
The latest from director Baz Luhrmann takes a much deserved beating this week.
How do you follow the latest from writer/director/auteur Terrence Malick? With possibly the biggest summer movie of the year, duh. Trey and Trevan are a man down this week, with Eric hanging out in New Orleans or something. Honestly, who knows what he does. Trey talks To The Wonder, one of Malick’s more accessible and beautiful efforts. While [...]
The armored avenger’s third outing is a high-speed, action-heavy romp that deepens some existing characters, introduces some interesting new ones and is surprisingly funny throughout.
This week, Eric, Trey, and Trevan welcome Matt Lloyd, a confessed Bay-o-phile to talk about Pain & Gain, the stranger-than-fiction pet project from Michael Bay. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and a huge supporting cast and follows body builder bank robbers as they extort millions from some rich businessman or something. If you don’t [...]
Oblivion features an interesting premise, that is quickly marred by familiar Sci-Fi tropes and MacGuffins that plunge the film into terribly predictable and familiar territory.
We’re back again with another episode of movie reviews and financial advice. This week: Eric, Trey and Trevan are joined by Alan Rapp as they review the latest Tom Cruise vehicle, Oblivion. Fair warning: This is a scattershot podcast. That’s what happens when a movie is a thoroughly disappointing as this one was.
The latest from direct Derek Cianfrance offers a bigger story than expected as what begins as a small-time crime story turns into a mediation on fathers, sons and legacies both intentional and accidental.
Trevan, Trey and Eric discuss the benefits of itemized deductions and why a Roth IRA just makes sense given the current state of the market before moving on to talk about Danny Boyle’s latest film Trance. Later, Trevan and Eric talk about The Place Beyond The Pines, the latest from director Derek Cianfrance.
The story around The Sapphires is far more interesting than the film itself, which takes a fascinating historical context and filters it through a by-the-numbers romantic comedy filter.
This week, Eric recounts his junket screening of Evil Dead after lamenting that he has sold out once and for all. Trevan discusses The Sapphires, a frustrating, inspired-by-a-true story whose real world story is more interesting than the fictionalized vehicle the studio cooked up. Finally, Trey and Trevan both discuss Ginger and Rosa, a fantastic film by Sally Potter.
Hey-o! A late post for the podcast this week. Sorry about that. This week, Trey talks The Host, while Trevan and Eric talk G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Gatekeepers. Lastly, Eric takes on On The Road on his own.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is not high art. It is a sequel to a movie that is based on a 1980s bit of brand fusion that combined a toy line with a cartoon and comic books. It’s an obvious piece of nostalgia farming for a series that was honestly never that great, it is just remembered as [...]
This week, Trey gushes over two movies, Spring Breakers and Stoker while Eric joins in on the Stoker love fest. Trevan pouts because he missed them both!
