A weekly movie podcast filled with shenanigans!

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.

Black Rain

July 22nd, 2017

Fire up the Harely sportster prepare yourselves for....an interesting film needless to say with Wade's pick of the week of Black Rain, the 1989 crime drama starring Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia and directed by Ridley Scott.

The film is about two New York cops who whitness a murder by a yakuza leader and have to extradite him back to Japan for justice....and that's where the shit hits the fan. 

It's not a terrible film by any means however definitely one of the lower rated films we've done. Check out the episode, it's a little more news heavy and the review was solid for some insight and gave us some perspective that even though with a great foundation and cast for a film...it might not be what you expect.

Maggie (2015)

July 16th, 2017

Get to the choppa!!! Wait..wrong film, this week we take a slightly different turn from the normal type of movies we've done and we review the 2015 flick Maggie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin (Zombieland)

Set a few months into a virus outbreak Maggie gets bit and is infected, her father Wade (played by Arnold) finds her and brings her home to spend as much time as he can with her before she turns. It's defintely a different side of Arnie we get to see because you get to see the emtion of the everyman or person that would have to deal with if we were to have to deal with the struggle of a loved one being infected and ultimately meeting their demise.

Definitely a film worth watching, not your normal zombie or action flick you might see but it's not boring by any means and very captivating. Don't forget to like, link and subscribe and leave comments below.

Hard Boiled

July 9th, 2017

Guns, explosions, and more bullets than you can shake a gun at is exactly what goes on this week as we review the 1992 John Woo action flick Hard Boiled starring Chow Yun Fat.

Hard Boiled is about a detective who links up with an undercover cop as they try to put a stop to illegal firearms sales from the Hong Kong Triad gang. 

Apparently in Hong Kong it's ok to kill people on film (just kidding?) for the sake of a movie and that guns never run out of bullets. The amount of bullets fired in this movie are probably greater than both world wars put together. It's a great action flick and plenty of guns if not ALL the guns in China were used for this film. Definitely worth the watch especially if you're an action junkie.

Go grab your pistols so you can dual weild them of course, suspend your belief in physics and any kind of reasonsing to go watch this film then listen to this episode! *cue explosions*

Independence Day (Bonus Episode)

July 1st, 2017

Kick the tires and light the fires listeners! That's right thanks to Jeremiah writing in to us we did a bonus episode this week on the 1996 blockbuster flick Independence Day starring Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum....and.....Randy Quaid.....no bananas were abused during this episode (sorry Jeremiah)

We find out we're not alone in the universe when aliens come down and invade out planet, all they want is to destroy our planet and take our resources. As Bill Pullman says in the movie "We will not go quietly into the night!"....the whole world unites as one to take these aliens down so we can prevail and not be extinct.

It's a great movie and still holds up on its special effects (which won an Oscar mind you), not to mention some of the quotable lines and ultimately the sound of the movie...especially on surround sound.

4th of July is right around the corner and how could you not be fucking american and NOT watch this movie...it has the name of the holiday in the TITLE folks! So go have a bbq, crack open a beer, watch this movie and then have a listen to us on this movie!
