Major clashes ahoy Dear Listener as Gareth and I disagree mightily on TAKE SHELTER, agree mostly on The Oscars and talk ever so briefly about new doc HOLY ROLLERS and old stage play VANYA ON 42ND STREET. All that and I make an appearance on Film Geek Radio and you can now find TFT on [...]

Thoughts on the beautiful and disturbing tone poem that is DRIVE and an exhortation to participate in the exciting new film COYOTE REQUIEM. Oh, and Gareth saw THE IDES OF MARCH apparently.
For a film about mixed martial arts, it would have been cool of Gavin O’Connor’s WARRIOR to demonstrate some mixed martial arts. But maybe I’m projecting my own priorities onto a film more interested in showing us, ad nauseam, how this great whatsit is provoking the audience.
It’s almost too much action for one show Dear Listener: Gareth and I disagree more than a little bit on RISE OF THE PLAENT OF THE APES, cannot disagree for reasons that are obvious about Fassbinder’s WORLD ON A WIRE and explore a novel take on Stanley Kubrick’s THE KILLING.
It’s that hot and parched month of August Dear Listeners – and so we release a Treasure From the Archives, (let us not refer to it as a repeat), our thoughts on the action comic IRON MAN 2 and the horror of trying to make a living as a scriptwriter documentary TALES FROM THE SCRIPT.

In this week’s show Gareth and I mull over that great summer action film FAST FIVE and have on as a special guest an award-winning stunt coordinator from the movie Jack Gill.
In what could be our last show Gareth and I discuss the new comedy YOUR HIGHNESS and ruminate on why film criticism matters as well as the reasons behind our desire to continue reviewing, investigating, mocking and praising cinema week after week.
Here it is – a review of that Apple Store you have to pay to get into, TRON: LEGACY, plus the laugh out loud tragedy of the year TRUE GRIT. All that and our thoughts on the Films of the Year.
As many reviews will tell you, DUE DATE — the 2010 Downey Jr/Galifianakis feel-good buddy/road movie — is quite a lot like PLANES, TRAINS, & AUTOMOBILES — the 1987 Martin/Candy feel-good buddy/road movie. More than quite a lot. I can imagine DUE DATE’s director Todd Phillips pitching the idea: “It’s like PLAINS, TRAINS, & AUTOMOBILES, [...]
When I’m not carving topical jack-o-lanterns and funding my dentist’s third home, I treat Halloween as an opportunity to catch up with the horror greats I spent my adolescence cowering from (thanks to vividly traumatic childhood experiences with The Shining and The Exorcist that may or may not have involved pants-peeing). No longer new to [...]
