Super Film Bros

The weekly movie podcast where anything goes!

Mom and Dad

May 17th, 2018

This week on Super Film Bros we unknowingly keep the theme going of the horroresque genre from last week as we watch and talk about the 2017 film Mom and Dad starring Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair.

After an unknown static signal is randomly broadcasted that sets off the urge for parents to kill their own children, mass hysteria breaks out world wide as these violent events unfold. Meanwhile siblings Carly and Josh must survive not being murdered by their own parental units. (Cage & Blair)

Written and directed by Brian Taylor (Crank and Crank: High Voltage) this flick gives an interesting view of the horror of what would happen if this were to actually take place in the real world. Good performances given by the main cast for sure, especially Nic Cage who basically plays himself for the entire course of the film. 

Hope you enjoy the show, and I also hope that your parents live a good distance away from you so you can properly prepare....you know just in case.

Tucker And Dale VS. Evil

May 9th, 2018

This week on Super Film Bros, we rev up the chainsaw and crack open some PBR (just kidding we’re not doing any of that) as we review Tucker and Dale vs. Evil a comedy movie that pokes fun at the horror genre in numerous ways. 

As Tucker and Dale are heading to their newly acquired vacation home to do some fixing up, they encounter some college kids trying to enjoy a weekend of camping in the woods. After one of the college kids injures herself, Tucker and Dale come to her aid while the college kids assume the worst things imaginable and all hell breaks loose. 

The movie has gathered quite a cult following and is hilarious in many ways, so sit back and listen while we talk about it and wish that we had our own vacation home…minus college kids trying to kill us or themselves.

Avengers:Infinity War

May 2nd, 2018

*SPOILER ALERT* You’ve been warned super film fans. On that note finally after ten years in the making the marvel cinematic universe has come together in the biggest and most epic culmination of super heroes we have ever seen for Avengers: Infinity War, and on this week’s episode we discuss and fan boy the hell out of this movie. 

I’m pretty much going to leave it at that because unless you’ve been living under a rock or in a cave since 2008 then you know all about this movie and if you’re fans like we are you have already seen it. If you haven’t seen it yet, GO SEE IT! Why? Well, because us talking about it just will not do any kind of justification to the level of awesomeness of this movie. Enjoy!

We’re Back

April 25th, 2018

We’re back! That’s right super film fans, after a more than brief hiatus we have returned back to our microphones to bring you all kinds of fuckery. No review this week minus a small recap of Full Metal Alchemist, the live action interpretation of the popular anime currently streaming on Netflix. We talk about what we’ve been up to during our absence, what we’ve seen lately, a bit of news and then we try to pronounce hyper-gonadal….yeah, let that sink in for a minute. We appreciate everyone’s patience for taking an extended break but we’re on the grind again. In the infamous words of LL COOL J….don’t call it a comeback!

What We Do In The Shadows (Bonus Episode)

March 1st, 2018
Bonus episode!!

This time the Bros. look back at the 2014 mockumentary vampire horror/comedy film What We Do in the Shadows starring Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, and Jonathan Brugh. The movie focuses on three housemates (who just happen to be vampires) as they live in New Zealand and deal with the struggles of modern day life while getting ready for the annual undead ball. Yes, I know there are four housemates originally but ultimately its sights are set on the main three.

It’s definitely an entertaining movie, myself (Wade) have seen this once before and wasn’t as entertained as it was hyped up for me, however with a revisit I enjoyed it much more. Very creative and witty with the dialogue, and all of the actors in the film do a wonderful job. I highly recommend watching it with friends, and if you’re a fan of the style of movie you’ll enjoy it. Don’t just take my word for it kick back and listen for yourself!

The Cloverfield Paradox

February 21st, 2018

This week on Super Film Bros. we hit you with our Weekly Hornet news segment as always and later we launch an out of this dimension expedition to review The Cloverfield Paradox.

Released right after the Super Bowl this year, the movie is about a team of scientists on the aptly named Cloverfield space station all trying to work together to solve the Earth’s energy crisis using an experimental particle accelerator. Once things go awry during their first semi successful test that’s when things start to get weird.

I might be hyping it up a bit too much but it does shift gears into a sci-fi thriller, however there just doesn't seem to be that much thrill. It’s good for sure, and it’s a nice addition to whatever shared universe JJ Abrams is trying to achieve. Let’s put it this way, it’s a good thing it was a straight Netflix movie instead of a theatrical release. Again, just an opinion but hey….listen to what we think about it by clicking on that play button!

Red State

February 14th, 2018

This week on Super Film Bros we look back at the 2011 Kevin Smith flick Red State starring Michael Parks and John Goodman.

After three teenagers meet up with a woman online anticipating sex with her, they shortly realize it’s a trap and find themselves at the mercy of a lunatic preacher and his congregation that want them to burn in hell for having sinned so egregiously. Needless to say all hell breaks loose between the victims, congretation and the ATF.

It’s definitely not the normal variety that Kevin Smith is known for seeing he has mostly put out dick and fart joke type movies such as Clerks, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob Strike back and so on so forth. He flexes his chops at directing this thrill filled and suspenseful ride of an interesting film.

So make sure and say your prayers and check it out and listen!

Hobo With A Shotgun (Bonus Episode)

February 7th, 2018

Just read the title of this movie!

Enough said.

We’re back at it film fans as we make progess through our back log of bonus episodes and on this one we look at Hobo With a Shotgun starring Rutger Hauer.

The premise doesn’t get much simpler than this, a hobo (Hauer) comes to town which is overrun by corrupt cops, drugs, and violence all thanks to the kingpin of the city The Drake. The hobo has had enough of the filth around him and decides to clean up the streets by dispensing justice one shell at a time….from his shotgun of course.

So kick back and pop a shell or two into the ol' pump action and have a listen to what we think of this movie (especially Wade).

The only question to ask is who's riding shotgun?

Brothers (2009)

February 7th, 2018

This week on Super Film Bros we look back at the 2009 drama Brothers starring Toby Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Natalie Portman.

Shortly after Tommy (Gyllenhaal) is released from prison his brother Sam (Maguire) leaves for Afghanistan, after being shot down and presumed dead Tommy steps in to help out his big brothers wife (Portman) and his two young daughters. Sam gets rescued and is brought home only to deal with the trauma of being tortured and the endeavor of settling back into his life.

The movie does a great job of portraying the real life struggles in the life of an active military family along with the very real mental battle of post-traumatic stress. A superb performance given by Maguire and the rest of the cast. Jim Sheridan also does very well directing this movie and is beautifully shot.

It’s well worth the watch so you can catch even just a small glimpse of what families have to go through each day as the men and women of our military serve to protect our country.

Thank you to all who have served and are currently serving.

Eastern Promises

February 1st, 2018

Bring on the vodka! Well, at least in small amounts so you’re not too smashed to listen.

This week we watch and review 2007s Eastern Promises starring Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts. After a young woman comes in with birth complications a nurse (Watts) delivers her baby and finds a mysterious diary among the woman’s things after she passes away from complications of the birth. Once she has the Russian text in the diary translated she’s sucked into a whirlwind of Russian mafia ties. All the while Nikolai (Mortensen) is trying to keep her away from him and his boss while he rises through the ranks of the crime family he works for.

The movie is not your typical crime syndicate thriller but it definitely has plenty to offer in the realm of organized crime. I mean it gets about as real as can be when the fight in the bath house ensues, not to mention all of the other violence along the way.

Grab a bottle of Russia’s best and have a listen, das vadanya.
