Franchise films are the big thing in the movie industry right now - but it’s easy for something that starts out beautifully to go awry. Join our pals Jeff & Paul each week as they take a look at what the next film in a given franchise needs to be great...

    Kung Fu Panda

    Kung Fu Panda

    Jack Black is the kind of performer who seems to only take jobs he likes, and his passion shines through in just about every project - the Kung Fu Panda trilogy is no exception. But does he have the stamina to make it a quadrilogy?... We hope so, because Jeff and Paul have come up with ten things needed to make it great! Tune in to hear their ideas! Also in this episode: Paul's Ian McShane impression, and what kind of animal would Cate Blanchett play in a Kung Fu Panda film?

    FANCASTIC 1.6 - Young Guns

    FANCASTIC 1.6 - Young Guns

    It's insane to look back at Young Guns and see six kids in their 20s playing cowboy in the wild west, and know that some of them have grown up to be huge, huge Hollywood stars. Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Dermot Mulroney all got pretty big breaks from starring in 1988's Young Guns. But who would maybe get some of those same big breaks if we cast a re-make of Young Guns today, 32 years later? Tune in to today's episode to find out!

    Back to the Future

    Back to the Future

    The first Back to the Future is a (super weird) classic film, and the other two are... also movies. Whether to try preserve the dignity and integrity that the original franchise has left, or to stop the further ruining of the the original Back to the Future by all follow-up installments, Jeff and Paul really struggled with whether or not there should even be a Back to the Future: Part IV (or Part III, if you use Paul's system of counting). Nevertheless, if the powers that be DO elect to make another Back to the Future, here are ten things to make it great. Also in this episode: We ruin Marty McFly for you, time machines that are also flying trains are the WORST, and more!

    FANCASTIC 1.5 - Stand By Me

    FANCASTIC 1.5 - Stand By Me

    Arguably the most important coming-of-age film for boys of all time, certainly required viewing to receive one's Man Card, Stand By Me is a classic film about four boys who leave their small town in Oregon to see a dead body. But what would it look like cast with contemporary child actors? Listen in to find out! Also in this episode: Should Dacre Montgomery shave his moustache?

    The Fast & The Furious

    The Fast & The Furious

    The nearly SIX BILLION DOLLAR mega franchise, The Fast & The Furious, had humble beginnings, telling the story of a street kid from East L.A., boosting trucks and racing for cash. Now, 20 years later, the tenth film in the franchise is on its way, and these rag-tag street kids have become bona fide superhuman government agents, trotting around the globe and saving the world from total destruction. But is that the way it should be? Join Jeff and Paul as they break down their hopes for the franchise's next installment: F9 - one as a long-time fan of the franchise, the other catching up after years of disinterest. Also in this episode: How is Dom's back not broken? Are there too many butts? And why are we acting like Brian is dead? All this and more on this week's episode of Ten Things with Jeff and Paul!

    FANCASTIC 1.4 - Reservoir Dogs

    FANCASTIC 1.4 - Reservoir Dogs

    Arguably the greatest debut film of all time, Quentin Tarantino's 1992 masterpiece Reservoir Dogs began the reputation that Tarantino would develop over the next three decades for incredibly insightful and specific casting. It feels nearly impossible to imagine these characters played by anyone else, as they leap off the screen not as performances but as whole human beings. Nevertheless, Paul and Jeff are not to be deterred, never ones to shrink from a challenge. So come and listen along as they sort through the best and brightest actors working today for eight men who could be... Reservoir Dogs.
