Three Australian amigos pick a film out of the aether every week to talk about for your listening pleasure.
This week David Leitch introduces the FMB to all his Hollywood friends and shows us the kind of fun they have together. Regrettably (or thankfully, depending on who you ask), it doesn't seem like our hosts are feeling the vibe and proceed instead to list the myriad of ways in which this movie hurt them personally - all in Virtual Reality!
next week: NOPE
Late drop this week FMBuffs, but the latest episode is here and it's a doozy.
In an effort to re-live their ill-fated never-released Naked Gun special the FMB try Weird Al's 'UHF' on for size and have perhaps the driest, most mirthless conversation about any piece of media with the word "comedy" attached to it.
next week: Bullet Train
The Gray Man
The FMB fight back tears choking on the pillar of smoke the Russo brothers generated after setting fire to 200 million dollars of Netflix subscriber money with their big, loud, hopelessly unoriginal franchise 'starter' The Gray Man.
Our hosts bid adieu to a true legend of film and television, James Caan, with a somber viewing of Norman Jewison's Rollerball.
Each person grieves in their own personal way and in this case it manifests in our hosts with massive tangents into John Mctiernan's fledgling career, animator Richard Williams, and beating up on the Russo brothers (again).
Sorry, Jim. We'll miss you.
next week: The Gray Man
After last week's Drebin-esque technical bungle. The FMB return with a continuation of their discussion of the Zucker-Abrams-Zucker triumvirate's stab at 'straight' filmmaking: 1986's Ruthless People.
The conversation has a particular wanderlust this episode as the boys manage to fill out their FMB bingo cards and still pay tribute to the late James Caan.
next week: Rollerball
This week the FMB risk both blindness and vertigo by exposing themselves to Baz Luhrmann's exhausted, bloated and spangled attempt at capturing the life of an exhausted, bloated and spangled superstar, Elvis Presley.
next week: The Naked Gun series
Don’t forget there are people apart from yourselves and your mates listening.
A little less self indulgent stuff please.
