You’d better create a rock-solid alibi, because Le Samourai is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Suggested by listener Eric Barroso as part of the IndieGoGo campaign, Le Samourai is a minimalist French neo-noir crime drama from 1967. It’s an exquisitely composed film that is at once bleak, ambiguous, and wonderfully suspenseful.

Don’t let anyone remove the firing pin from your pistol, because Bullet to the Head is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: In terms of tone, narrative, and characterization, Bullet to the Head is an atavism – a throwback to an earlier time period. It’s also an unlikely hybrid of hard-boiled crime drama and buddy-cop action film. Some of it works, some of it doesn’t, but Bullet is worth examining if only to see how drastically modern film sensibilities have changed.

It’s hard out there for a Samurai…

Review in a Nutshell: I think I pronounce Jim Jarmusch’s last name about ten different ways in this recording about a movie involving urban samurai, aging gangsters, icecream, and a boat on a roof. I don’t even know who I am any more. What year is this?

featuring guest hosts Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Rachel Pandich, author of Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  An Indonesian martial arts movie written and directed by a Welsh man, The Raid: Redemption is not just a typical action movie.  It blends drama and suspense with some of the most breath-taking and technically accomplished fight choreography in recent cinema history to create a tight, tense, thoroughly engrossing experience.

Break out the turn-tables, because Juice is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  At times darkly humorous, at times lyrical and surreal, Juice is a crime drama that explores the lives of four poor black youths in the ghettoes of Harlem.  Tupac Shakur delivers a scene-stealing performance.

Michael Douglas Ruins Japan

Strap on your motorcycle helmets, because Black Rain is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring special guest host Jeremy from Destroy All Podcasts-DX.

Review in a Nutshell:  Ostensibly a police thriller, Black Rain is more of an excuse for Michael Douglas and Ridley Scott to stomp through the Land of the Rising Sun with enormous, hob-nailed boots.  As a cinematic artifact from the Eighties representing American cultural anxiety, it’s hard to beat this surprisingly crazy film.

This movie contains:

Michael Douglass, Puffy Avenger.

Hand Trauma.

Impromptu Karaoke.

Cage Rage: The Rock and Con Air

Buckle up for another double-feature, because Con Air and The Rock are the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  These films are dumb.  Really, really dumb.  But at least Nicolas Cage has great hair.
