One Cha'man and One Cha'boi watch and riff on movies new and old.
War of The Roses
It's the last week of Michael Douglas month at the FMB household, and true to their amorphous, directionless nature, the examination has morphed into closely observing the triumvirate of stars Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito - so we see them out with the capstone (or coffin nail) to that historic trio: "The War of the Roses".
next week: the boys finally visit Michael Mann's 2015 monetary failure "Blackhat"
Jewel of The Nile
It's week three of the FMB Month of MD (Michael Douglas to you) and instead of the smorgasbord approach the boys have put on their bifocals and honed in on the direct sequel to the previous episode and watched the vastly inferior Jewel Of The Nile - and also spend far too much time on a gaffe about 1998's Mighty Joe Young.
next week Michael Douglas month mutates even further and we wrap it up with War Of The Roses.
Romancing The Stone
It's week 2 into our impromptu FMBMDM (the Forever Movie Boys Michael Douglas Month to the uninitiated), and what better way to celebrate the Dougster than to take a look at the film that arguably put him on the map and launched him into the sexual daydreams of countless bored stay-at-home types hoping for their own companion with whom to share a Colombian mudslide (not a euphemism or a cocktail).
next week: Jewel of The Nile
The FMB continue their meandering entry to the year by focusing their sights on 90's darling Michael Douglas, specifically Joel Schumacher's 1993 treatise on the American Dream "Falling Down".
It's the kind of movie that has a lot to say, but has a hard time saying it and ends up maybe choking a little on it's own words.
next week the Douglas dissertation continues with "Romancing The Stone"
Our host's very own backyard provides the backdrop for todays pick. On the agenda is one-time director Sandy Harbutt's cult 1974 Australian biker flick "STONE". Having lost both Harbutt and Australian acting legend Hugh Keays-Byrne last year, the boys pay tribute to both in the only way the FMB know how.
next week: Falling Down
Maniac Cop 2
After 3-ish years our hosts return to the New York backstreets to see what that crazy Maniac Cop, Matt Cordell has been up to. Turns out more of the same, but with a more capable cast in tow - including the legendary Robert Davi - perhaps this stuntacular grindhouse sequel might go down a little easier.
next week: STONE (1974)
