Hello Filmy People!

This week we have none other than Mr Hannan to join Flinty on co-hosting duties. On the pod we review VICE. Governor George W Bush of Texas picks Dick Cheney, the CEO of Halliburton Co, to be his Republican running mate in the 2000 presidential election. No stranger to politics, Cheney's impressive résumé includes stints as White House chief of staff, House Minority Whip and defence secretary. When Bush wins by a narrow margin, Cheney begins to use his newfound power to help reshape the country and the world. We then go into what's been occurring in the world of news and entertainment. We then go into our streaming gems for the week Fyre and IO.

Hello Filmy People!

This week John and Jaimie review The Favorite. In the early 18th century, England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne, and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and a mercurial temper. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots. We go through this year’s Oscar nominations and give our hot take on who is going to win.

 

We also review Glass, M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000's Unbreakable, and 2016's Split, in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb's superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

 

That and a game or two :)

Hello Filmy People! (or Pozdravljeni Filmi Ljudje)

Apologies for the delay in getting this pod out. This week we discuss our thoughts on the new Ghostbusters movie in development as well as coming to America. We also spend too much time talking about Brad Bird (not a bad thing). We also review Bumblebee, on the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee the Autobot seeks refuge in a junkyard in a small California beach town. Charlie, on the brink of turning 18 years old and trying to find her place in the world, soon discovers the battle-scarred and broken Bumblebee. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns that this is no ordinary yellow Volkswagen.

 

We also have a new game “Talk silly to me” where John takes memorable film quotes and changes the audio in which Flinty has to guess which the film. That and the usual nonsense on the 1000+ followers on podbean have endured.

This pod will rock you with our review of Bohemian Rhapsody,Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.

They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.

We also review Overlord, on the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers drop behind enemy lines to penetrate the walls of a fortified church and destroy a radio transmitter. As the soldiers approach their target, they soon begin to realize that there's more going on in the Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. Making their way to an underground lab, the outnumbered men stumble upon a sinister experiment that forces them into a vicious battle against an army of the undead.

But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons. We then go through News, we then dive into First Man 

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.

Hello Filmy People!

This week we have 2 reviews for your ear holes! First up we review Crazy Rich Asians, this film started life as a hugely successful series of books written by Kevin Kwan, and has made the transition to film. Directed by Jon M. Chu, Crazy Rich Asians is the first western produced film in 25 years to contain a predominantly Asian heritage cast. The film follows the story of Rachel Chu, a Chinese- American economics professor, meeting her boyfriend Nicks’ family at a wedding in Singapore.

Although they have been dating for a year Nick has omitted certain details of his family and heritage, namely that he is an heir to one of China’s richest families and that they are “Crazy Rich”. Rachel discovers this on route to Singapore as well as all the cultural and political aspects of acceptance from this very traditional, crazy, but hard to please family.

 

We also review "A SIMPLE FAVOR", directed by Paul Feig, centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily's (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town.

Hello Filmy People!
In this episode we have Mr. Hannan join us in the Filmy studio once more to talk all things movie news and films that scared the sh*t out of us. We also review "The Nun", when a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows is sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, they uncover the order's unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun. Also Flinty goes on a solo mission to review The Predator from the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biologist can prevent the end of the human race.

Hello Filmy People!
This pod was delayed slightly due to us attending the London Podcast Festival (There is a funny story about this in the pod). On the show today we review American Animals: Spencer Reinhard, Warren Lipka, Eric Borsuk and Chas Allen are four friends who live an ordinary existence in Kentucky. After a visit to Transylvania University, Lipka comes up with the idea to steal the rarest and most valuable books from the school's library. As one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history starts to unfold, the men question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives are simply misguided attempts at achieving the American dream.

We also review Amazon prime video original Jack Ryan Author Tom Clancy introduced the character of Jack Ryan in a series of books before Ryan headed to the big screen in several films. Now the former U.S. Marine is featured in an episodic series for the first time, with John Krasinski portraying Ryan in this Amazon original thriller that centers on Ryan as an up-and-coming CIA analyst. He is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time and uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication. That launches him into the middle of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.

 

Finally we also review Disenchantment After tackling modern times with "The Simpsons" and the future with "Futurama," producer Matt Groening steps into the past with "Disenchantment." The animated fantasy series geared toward adults takes place in the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland. It follows the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo and personal demon Luci. The oddball trio encounters the likes of ogres, sprites, imps, trolls and human fools along the way. The voice cast features Abbi Jacobson as Bean and includes veteran voiceover artists such as John DiMaggio, Billy West and Maurice LaMarche.
