Bachelor Party

November 23rd, 2017

We got drugs, hookers, guns, booze, hookers!!! Ok, not really but this movie sure does have all of that and then some including a tasteful donkey show.

That’s right film fans the bros go down memory lane as we review 1984s Bachelor Party starring Tom Hanks. Hanks plays Rick Gassko who after many years of just living it up with his pals decides he’s going to settle down and get married to his girlfriend Debbie. His buddies decide to throw one last hoorah before he becomes unavailable. 80s chaos ensues while Rick parties like an animal while everyone is knee deep in booze, drugs, and women while also managing to not get killed by Debbie’s crazy ex-boyfriend.

The movie was much funnier as we were younger and more juvenile but it was nice to take a trip back down the road of nostalgia. While the movie wasn’t gut busting hilarious, it was still funny and was great to see 80s Tom Hanks when he was doing comedic roles before he made the huge shift to drama.

Bust out the big hair, drugs, women and animal shows for this episode.

Filth

November 14th, 2017

It's all posh and shites this week on our show film fans as we review not just a dirty movie, but a fucking filthy movie filled with drugs, sex, and alcohol. 

That's right we went with 2014s Filth starring James McAvoy. McAvoy plays Bruce Robertson who is a drug addicted, drunken, bi-polar, hallucinating scoundrel bastard of a detective trying to solve a murder of a Japanese student.

The movie is exactly how it's titled...just filth, but not in a completely bad way because you just see how one man while trying to hold on to his humanity and win back his wife and daughter just completely spiral out of control into the abyss of utter chaos. He bullies his friends, he belittles his co-workers, while doing just about every drug he can get his hands on while still battling all the skeletons in his closet.

McAvoy delivers a great performance in this film and that's pretty much what makes it bearable. Definitely worth the watch if you like the type of movies in this genre.

Kick back, pour yourself a wee glass of whiskey, and listen aye.

Halloween (1978) VS. Halloween (2007)

October 31st, 2017

Tonight’s main event is brought to you by Haddonfield hardware, where you can get all of your slasher needs!

*in ring announcer voice* In one corner we have the master of horror himself John Carpenter and his 1978 masterpiece Halloween starring the scream queen herself Jamie Lee Curtis! In the other corner we have the demon speeder himself Rob Zombie with his 2007 remake of Halloween! Both of which feature the man from the depths of hell, the man of pure evil, armed with only a butcher knife and sheer brute strength…the man..the myth…the boogeyman himself…Michael Myers!! Let’s get it on!

That’s right film fans, as we close out our Brotober series this month here at film bro studios we do a dual movie review comparison of Halloween. Both movies star the evil antagonist Michael Myers who after committing murder as a young boy is sent to a psychiatric hospital where he then escapes to come back and wreak havoc on his home town. He stalks Laurie Strode and her friends ultimately killing them and fighting to the death with Laurie in the end, but is he dead? The sequels kind of spoil that.

With the help of our special guest Brent we review both of these films and talk about the good and the bad in their own equal rights given the fact they were done almost three decades apart.

Just remember fans if you’re a horny teenager and need to give into those “desires” don’t use an abandoned house, or another family’s bed or else end up stabbed or choked out. If you have a bitchin van, use it instead. That way you can out run the serial killer slow walk of death. Happy screaming and of course Happy Halloween!

The Monster Squad

October 25th, 2017

Who ya gonna call? Well in this case The Monster Squad! That's right folks it's the 1987 film directed by Fred Deckker, written by (Shane) Black and Deckker. Continuing on with our month long Brotober series Wade selected this 80's cult classic as his pick of the week and man was it a nostalgia filled romp getting to revisit it.

In the film a group of unlikely kids are the only thing standing in the way of Dracula and his gang of monsters (including Frankenstein or Frankenstein's monster if you're a purist dickhole, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and Gil-Man) from taking over the world using a magical amulet that has the power to turn the tide of good vs. evil. It's only up to them to discover Draculas evil plot and stop him from destroying all life as we know it.

The movie is classic 80's fantasy and definitely hasn't aged as well as some of it's same time period contemporaries, but if you enjoy a decent and entertaining stroll down memory lane then definitely check this one out, especially if you're a fan of Universal's classic monsters and you've never seen it before.

So get ready and grab your wooden stakes and do your best Van Helsing impersonation and send those monsters back to where they came from and join the crew in The Monster Squad!

Message From The King (BONUS EPISODE!)

October 20th, 2017

Well film fans it's that time again around here at Super Film Bros. Studios! Time for a BONUS EPISODE! This time around we're taking a stab at a Netflix Original film suggeseted by our dear friend Frank. Upon his request we watched Message From The King starring none other than Black Panther himself Chadwick Boseman.

This film is sort of a gritty noire detective thriller mixed with a good old fashioned revenge flick so if that sounds like your cup of tea go ahead and give our review a listen. Boseman stars as Jacob King a South African visiting Los Angeles in order to find the whereabouts of his sister who has gone missing. What he soon uncovers leads him on a trail of revenge and danger involving a crooked dentist (played by Luke Evans) and a rich and pedophilic film mogul (played by Alfred Molina) that really throw the viewer for a loop (not in a good way).

The film is shot well and the actors do a fine job considering the material they have, but overall the film drags (earlier on especially), you don't ever really feel like the protagonist is in any real danger save for one scene in particular and the plot is too convoluted for its own good. Its not a bad film by any means it just could have been so much more.

Anyway enough babbling click that download button and enjoy and remember THIS WAS A MESSAGE FROM THE KING!

Clown

October 17th, 2017

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.

It Follows

October 11th, 2017

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.

Outbreak

October 3rd, 2017

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!

The Good The Bad and The Ugly

September 26th, 2017

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.

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!!
