A weekly movie podcast filled with shenanigans!

Payback

September 19th, 2017

Get ready to root for the bad guy, that's right film fans another episode is bestowed upon your ears. This week is Jeremy's pick of 1999s Payback

Payback stars Mel Gibson as Porter, a guy who after being double crossed in a heist is out for revenge against his ex partner Val (Gregg Henry) and his wife. The film is directed by Brian Helgeland (won an oscar for best screenplay for L.A. Confidential)

It was an interesting film to watch for sure because while Jeremy and Jose watched the theatrical version of the film, Wade watched the directors cut....and ultimately two different films because they had different characters to an extent, scenes, AND even a fucking different ending. It makes for a interesting review with out a doubt so hopefully you guys like it. Nothing like a good ole fashion revenge flick to get the week started.

*spoiler* Lucy Liu is a super hot dominatrix that wears chaps, fish nets, and a thong....enjoy!!

Last Action Hero

September 12th, 2017

Rock music, guns, explosions and Arnold motherfucking Schwarzenegger is all you need to know about this movie people!! That's right, it was Wade's pick of the week and he went with 1993s Last Action Hero.

The movie stars Arnold as Jack Slater who is an action hero on screen and idolized by Danny Madigan played by Austin O'Brien. After Danny is given a magical ticket that opens a portal between the real world and the fictional movie world that's where things get nuts. When the antagonist Benedict (Charles Dance) realizes what this ticket can do he uses it for evil of course by using the power to bring movie villains into the real world and Jack with Dannys help must stop him. 

This movie is high up over the top it could reside on Mt. Everest...it's an action movie, inside an action movie!! What more can you want!? The movie is so wildly creative and pokes fun at itself throughout the whole thing, then not to mention the cast, numerous cameos and the awesome soundtrack. Arnold even went to AC/DC and asked them to come up with a song and we got 'Big Gun'

Have a listen to this episode if you will as we gush over this movie and appreciate it for everything it's worth and then some.

The Crow (Bonus Episode)

September 10th, 2017

I heard a tapping, someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door....you heard us rapping right? Ok maybe not but hopefully you'll listen to our latest show here. Thanks to our listenter Stephen we did a bonus episode on The Crow.

The Crow is a dark comic book based movie starring the late Brandon Lee as well as Ernie Hudson and Michael Wilcott. Lee stars as Eric Draven, as musician who is soon to be wed to his fiance Shelly but ends up brutally murdered along with her in their apartment. He comes back via a link from an actual crow so he can seek his vengence.

It's a good film and definitely a cult classic among movie goers and comic book fans who enjoy this genre. It's dark and gritty and violent....which is right up our alley. It's one of Wade's top films and if you are a fan of film as we are or even comic books of the same material it comes highly reccommended to watch...especially from a nostalgic stand point as well as an awesome soundtrack.

It can't rain all the time, love is forever.

The Founder

September 6th, 2017

Franchise..franchise...franchise! No not our show, we're talking about the billion dollar company McDonalds. That's ultimately what Ray Kroc wanted and obtained back in 1954.

That's right, Jose's pick on this weeks episode is 2016 The Founder starring Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman and Laura Dern. Keaton plays Ray Kroc based on the true story of how he founded an innovative fast food eatery started by two brothers of the same name. 

It's a movie of a man with the drive to be successful and just looking for his one shot to be something instead of a nobody. It shows what one man can do with persistence, ambition, and sheer ruthlessness to be a success in america. 

Everyone in the main and supporting cast does a great job and it's a great time period drama. Definitely worth a the watch and can even learn a bit of history of one of the nations biggest franchise fast food chains.

Christine

August 22nd, 2017

Looking for a car? Have some guys picking on you? Want them taken care of? Boy do we have a car for you, if you have 300$ or even 250$ you can buy your very own 1958 Plymouth Fury! It's fully loaded even, it comes with manual windows, self repairing sheet metal, fire engine red in color, and possesed by a demon...what more can you ask for? How about undying love by a car that will right any wrongs by killing anyone in your way.

That's right folks, this week was Jeremys pick and we review 1983s Christine directed by honorary film bro John Carpenter starring Keith Gordon, Jonh Stockwell and Alexandra Paul. The movie centers around a 17 year old kid who buys his first car and becomes infatuated with this car, falls in love with it and finds out it has supernatural powers of the demon kind.

It's a great film yet again from John Carpenter, I love the fact it has unknown actors and they do a great job for not being well knowns. The best parts for me is ultimately the car of how beautiful yet menacing it is, and of course how Carpenter films it. It's not gory by any means but definitely gives you the suspense and thrill of a car who is out to get you at all costs.

This car may kill people but will love you until the very end...now that's a bargain folks.

Army of Darkness

August 16th, 2017

That's right you primitive screw heads, another podcast is ready to invade your ears like the army of the dead from this movie stormed the castle for the Necronomicon. Fear not though folks, Ash will be there with his trusty chainsaw and boomstick to protect us and save the day!

This week we review 1992's Army of Darkness starring Bruce Campbell and directed by Sam Raimi. In the third installment of the Evil Dead trilogy we follow Ash (Bruce Campbell) as he is sucked through a time portal into the year 1300 A.D. and he has to fight the army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can be sent back to his original time.

The movie is great on so many levels, from the ultimate cheese fest that it is all the way down to the infamous one liners this movie spills out from "the chin" himself. Can't say enough other than it's highly recommended by the film bros here to go see it.

Kick back, have a listen and hail to the king baby!

Planet Of The Apes (Bonus Episode)

August 5th, 2017

Dr. Zaius! Dr. Zaius! That's right folks bonus level episode time this week and we're doing the 1968 Planet of the Apes film suggested by Brent! 

The movie stars Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner. The movie stars Heston as George Taylor who after a snafu of a space exploration mission him and his crew end up on a planet that is ran by apes. Taylor is captured by the apes and imprisoned but once he re gains his speech after being shot in the throat he tries to explain to them where he is from...however the apes are not having any of it due to being so set in their ways.

It's a great film in so many ways. From the acting and makeup all the way down to the set design. There are many underlying tones and messages of this movie and this is one of the many reasons that makes the movie so great and why it's stood the test of time. 

I diegress, so take your stinking paws off of whatever you're doing you damned dirty apes and go listen to this episode!

Knock Knock

August 5th, 2017

Knock Knock...who's there? Keanu Reeves being seduced and taking advantage by two young girls.

Yep, that's pretty much the jist of this movie folks. Directed by Eli Roth (Hostel) this movie stars Keanu as a family man who is alone for the weekend and during a rain storm at night two young very attractive women come knocking on his door, enter his home because of him being a good person and ends up being raped ultimately. 

This movie was dumb after the 30 min mark, I understand a little bit of where it was trying to go at times but overall this movie kept losing it's sense of direction. It needed a compass and a map but yet they left that shit at home and just hoped they were following the north start in order to find something good in this movie.

It's one of our more entertaining show due to the fact of tearing a bad movie apart so kick back and have a listen once again as we ensue with antics per the usual. Knock knock...who's there? Dumbass movie that's who.

The Professional

July 31st, 2017

Bring me everyone!! That's right people another week and another podcast from the bros here at Super Film Bros. and this week we review the 1994 film The Professional starring Jean Reno, Natalie Portman, and Gary Oldman.

The movie revolves around Leon played by Jean Reno who is a "cleaner" AKA a hitman for the Italian mob. He's a simpleton that all his job is taking care of people as permitted by his contracts. After Mathildas parents are murdered by Stansfiled and his goons she seeks refuge with Leon and asks him to teach her how to clean like he does so she can have her revenge for her little brother.

The movie is great in many ways, director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) did an awesome job filming this movie and writing as well. The character development is well done as well everyones performance in the movie.

Kick back and have a listen....okay? Okay.
