Episode 114 - No Time To Die
No More Time to Die! As the Lodgecast survived to witness the 25th film in the James Bond series. No Time to Die was originally supposed to come out in April of 2020 but was delayed by the pandemic until October of 2021. We drove to see it at the brand new AMC Porter Ranch 9 for a very special reason relating to Nicole Kidman. Once there we talked all things Bond, and then took in all 163 minutes of Daniel Craig's final outing as 007. This one is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga with a theme song by Billie Eilish. It also stars Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, Rory Kinnear, Ralph Fiennes, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, David Dencik, and Dali Benssalah.
Episode 113 - Titane Review
Prestige season is in full effect and what better to kick it off than with the Palme d'Or winner Titane! Writer/director Julia Ducournau serves up a healthy helping of French body horror that was consumed and digested in a variety of ways on this contentious Lodgecast. Was it Salad Dragon City, or Salad Dragon Exploitation? A profound and moving reflection on the human condition, or a repulsive and gratuitous tale of violence for the sake of shock value? Or was it all of these things and more?! Titane stars Agathe Rousselle, Vincent Lindon, Garance Marillier, and Lais Salameh.
Hawt🔥Takez - Cry Macho Review
You might've forgotten or not known that 91-year-old Clint Eastwood directed and starred in a movie this year called Cry Macho. Well the Lodgecast did not forget, as we are hell bent on covering every Clint Eastwood movie until his dying day. This time around, Clint plays an ancient Texan rodeo star named Mike Milo who goes to Mexico to find his buddy's 13-year-old son Rafo. There ain't much to this movie, but we will explain to you just how old Clint Eastwood is. Clint is supported by a cast including Dwight Yoakam, Eduardo Minett, Natalia Traven, Fernanda Urrejola, Horacio Garcia Rojas, and a rooster named Macho! Stay Alive Clint!
Episode 112 - Glenn Danzig's Death Rider in the House of Vampires Review
Writer/director Glenn Danzig has returned to the silver screen with his new western horror film Death Rider in the House of Vampires! In Episode 53 of the Lodgecast we attended the LA premiere of Danzig's directorial debut Verotika (2019) with Danzig in the house for a Q&A. This time it was a more subdued affair as we traveled deep into the San Fernando Valley to the Regency Theatres Van Nuys Plant 16 to catch the last screening of Death Rider with an audience of about four other people. We were very curious as to how Danzig would follow up his hilariously puzzling debut Verotika. We shall let you know! Devon Sawa plays Death Rider, and the film also stars Julian Sands, Kim Director, Ashley Wisdom, Danny Trejo, Eli Roth, and Glenn Danzig himself!
Hawt🔥Takez - God's Not Dead: We The People Review
For such a time as this! David A.R. White has returned as Reverend Dave Hill in God's Not Dead: We The People, also known as God's Not Dead 4! Way back in Episode 4 of the Lodgecast we covered the third installment of the God's Not Dead series called God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness. Reverend Dave was quite conflicted in that one, but in this one he has a clear mission to save homeschooling from the intrusion of the United States government! It was an interesting night at this Fathom Event at AMC Theaters and we'll give the update on the ongoing saga of David A.R. White. The faith-based film also stars Isaiah Washington, William Forsythe, Antonio Sabato Jr., and Judge Jeanine Pirro!
Episode 111 - Halloween Kills Review
Halloween f****n' Kills y'all! The dreaded followup to the wretched Halloween sequel called Halloween (2018) has arrived in theaters. The good news? The kitchen island burned to the ground! The bad news? Michael Myers did not burn and he's out for many more brutal kills in Haddonfield, Illinois. This time the whole town of Haddonfield joins in an angry mob to kill Michael Myers. As Lodgemaster predicted Jamie Lee Curtis is stuck in a hospital the entire movie. But Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Anthony Michael Hall, Thomas Mann, and an entire village of bloodthirsty suburbanites attempt to finish off Michael Myers once and for all. They don't succeed! Halloween Ends comes out October 14, 2022 and we will be there!
Good stuff fellas
Really enjoying these podcasts! Keep up the good stuff Lucas!!
Always entertaining stuff!
I don't always agree with the bone count - but I always have a good time!
Fun times at the good ol’ picture show
I am liking this podcast a lot. I find myself nodding along agreeing whole heartedly with some of their reviews and shouting at my computer to disagree with others. It’s fun to see who I’m going to agree/disagree with on each episode. It’s always funny. Thanks for watching crappy movies so I don’t have to!
