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.

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.

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.

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*

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!

May the wings of liberty never lose a feather, and may you guys enjoy our latest episode! That's right folks we're invading your ears with a new episode of SFB with the 1986 cult classic film Big Trouble in Little China starring Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall directed by honorary film bro John Carpenter.
Kurt Russell plays Jack Burton a truck driver that gets wrapped up in dark magic and sorcery in Chinatown located in San Francisco. He helps his buddy Wang get his girl back from an evil sorcerer and save the day with one liners, guns, and being a red blooded GD american!
The movie speaks for itself folks, it's so worth the viewing Jeremy bought it on blu ray to watch EVEN though it's currently streaming on Netflix. Have you listeners paid your dues? The check better be in the mail or else we're gonna shake the pillars of heaven and make you. Go enjoy!
