As much as we clown around here at film bro studios we decided to just do an episode on a movie called Clown...however as with most clowns or clown themed endeavors, it was not enjoyed that much.
Clown is the 2014 horror film produced by Eli Roth (Hostel) and directed by Jon Watts (Spiderman:Homecoming) about a guy who is a real estate agent and finds an old costume, decides to put it on for his kids birthday party. Good dad thing to do right? On paper yes it is, however when the costume is cursed with a demon spirit....shit goes down hill fast.
The film is definitely...different. I mean it's not a terrible film but as with most films in this genre it's either part of your wheel house or you have to take it with a huge grain of salt and get through it. However there are good things about the film like the special effects and makeup as well as how Watts directs it. Oh and Peter Stormare (Armageddon) wants to keep cutting the demons head off.
If you somehow happen to like clowns, go ahead and watch the movie....if you don't like clowns....flip a coin whether to watch it or not. Just remember if you find an old ass clown costume in a house you buy, don't put it on or else you'll want to eat kids as a demon clown...during the winter.

Becareful as to who you sleep with, or else you'll get a supernatural entity that will want to kill you for having sex with someone
That's right folks as we kick off our Brotober series this month we review It Follows starring Maika Monroe. After having sex with her boyfriend Jay (Maika) is being followed by a unseen supernatural force that wants to kill her....yeah that's the premise here folks.
As odd as it may sound overall this movie is actually really good. Filmed in Michigan on a budget of 1.3 million dollars and to make a 20 million return would deem it worthy. It is a very good looking film in ways of cinematography and does an even better job with the suspense as well as the pyschological aspect of just not knowing when this thing will come for you.
As mentioned folks, due your research before hooking up with someone or swiping right on that app, even if it's super late at night and it's prime time booty call hour...think before you fuck or else you'll end up running forever from some crazy and possibly naked entity that wants to kill you.

I hope everyone is up to date on your vaccination shots...I'm just kidding, a super bug wouldn't care because it would simply turn your insides into liquid and you'd die. Terrified? If not then maybe this movie will make you terrified, not with the idea of a super virus BUT with Dustin Hoffman's overacting
That's right folks another week means another show here at Film Bro studios and this week we review 1995's Outbreak starring Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kevin Spacey and Donald Sutherland. In the movie Hoffman stars as Col. Daniels of the armys top virologist who works with some of the planets deadliest viruses. When a small town in California becomes infected with a virus none of which anyone has ever seen before things get scary fast. Also during said time of panic Gen. McClintock (Sutherland) just simply wants to clean sweep the town and wipe it from existence.
As we discuss about the movie during this episode it's not a bad film by any means however the 2 hr run time is a bit long. Also, it is overacted like a MOTHERFUCKER by Hoffman which is great. Everyone else does a bit of over acting as well but it's not to the point of being unbearable.
Kick back and have a listen, watch out for little white faced monkeys...because if you don't we're all gonna be in big fucking shit!

A long time ago in the west where men were men, they drank booze, gambled, and carried six guns and abided by their own set of rules. Three men were also after one other thing the west was known for, striking it rich with gold.
This week we review Jose's pick of 1966s The Good The Bad and The ugly starring Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef. Directed by Sergio Leone. The movie is about a bounting hunting scam that leads to an uneasy alliance against a third man in search of buried gold in a cemetary which was stolen by a confederate soldier during the civil war.
The movie is a timeless classic. It does have a long run time however you're never bored while watching this movie. Anyone who is a fan of film like we are on this show it's definitely worth the watch. It's such an iconic film that so many movies after this reference it from the style of shooting all the way into pop culture.
Light a cigar, saddle up a horse and load your colt revolver as well as kick back and listen to our review of this flick.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
