    Vampire Killing and Pool Cleaning -Day Shift Spoiler Talk

    Vampire Killing and Pool Cleaning -Day Shift Spoiler Talk

     Filmmaker Matt Vella joins us on the show today to talk about his new short film, She's Not Your Type, and then to do an in-depth review of the new Jamie Foxx and Dave Franco film, Day Shift, that was just released on Netflix.

    To kick things off, Matt shares a little about his work, and what motivated him to make a short rom-com at this stage in his career. He talks about how performing standup influenced his process, and why he is sticking to projects that he believes in and are close to his heart.

    We also spend a little time recounting the wild and hilarious quotables from Matt's film!

    From there, the conversation turns to Day Shift

    We go through the picture's many problems, from casting issues, a confused script, and undercooked ideas and execution. With such a promising cast, it seems a shame that the final product is such a letdown. We find some time at the end of the episode to see how it measures up to other bad movies we have seen this year. So to hear the full breakdown, and a lot more in between, be sure to listen in with us in this fun conversation!

    Nope- Spoiler Talk

    Nope- Spoiler Talk

     
    Today we are joined by Anthony and Denise to discuss the latest horror sensation, Nope. Nope was directed by Jordan Peele, and follows two siblings who discover something wonderful, sinister, and otherworldly. Critics hail Nope as an undeniable success, but the story is riddled with holes and pitfalls, and the unsatisfying ending summates the general feel of the film.

    It makes one wonder whether critics would think differently if it was directed by someone other than Jordan Peele; it seems he can do no wrong. We talk about the characters and their confusing intentions throughout the movie, how many concepts are great but not fully developed, how the subplot is disconnected from the main plot, and some ideas on how the movie could’ve been improved. You’ll then get a list of other movies of a similar nature that we think are much better than Nope. Join us for another brutally honest movie review with Denise, Anthony, and Michael Pisciuneri!

    She Hulk - More Woke Garbage

     
    We all know who The Hulk is, but what about She Hulk? In this episode of Movies Worth Seeing, we review a new addition to the Hulk movie and series franchise.

    She Hulk is a modern take on an iconic character from Marvel Comics. Unfortunately, it might not be the entertaining watch you expected. In this episode, we cover all the reasons not to watch She Hulk and discuss the many pitfalls the series suffers. We break down the problems with the main character, Jennifer Walters, and why her character arc makes no sense. We also cover the many flaws with the male characters, and reasons why the screen version of She Hulk does not fit the original comic books.

    Various cringe-worthy scenes are discussed, as well as the many missed opportunities to create a worthy addition to the franchise. Find out why She Hulk is not worth your time with the unconventional and brutally honest review

    Bullet Train Review : John Wick on a Train?!

    Bullet Train Review : John Wick on a Train?!

    The trailers for Bullet Train built up anticipation for a thrilling action-packed cinematic experience. The question is, is this the next John Wick, or is this a train you do not want to board?

    Bullet Train is directed by David Leitch, and stars Brad Pitt. What could possibly go wrong?
    Well, in this episode, you’re sure to find out.

    Comparing Bullet Train to John Wick, we look at the film’s shortfalls, from its plot holes, outdated humor and bizarre dialogue, to its misleading genre and obvious use of CGI. Fortunately, it wasn’t all bad! Tune in to hear our take on the film and about the redemptive performances (particularly that of Joey King) that almost made it a movie worth seeing.

    Prey Review - If it bleeds we can kill it

    Prey Review - If it bleeds we can kill it

     
    Can the Predator franchise finally get back on track?

     Or should this alien just buzz off back to space? 

    That is the question we will be answering in today’s review of Prey, the latest installment in the Predator franchise. There are plenty of reasons to have low expectations for this film, especially since so many sequels have been unquestionable disappointments. 

    Prey, however, subverts expectations in the best possible ways. The film is a refreshing return to the core elements that made the first installment of Predator so thrilling. It's a straightforward tale about survival and proving your worth, with plenty of fun action sequences thrown into the mix. Prey is also shot on location, a welcome departure from the CGI, which seems to saturate blockbusters these days. 

     While it’s a pity Prey won’t be released in theaters, watching it at home is undeniably convenient. If you’ve been feeling disillusioned with the Predator franchise, Prey may just restore your faith
