Hawt🔥Takez - Barbarian Review
Lot of buzz around the new film Barbarian so we checked it out to get a hawt take. Zach Cregger is basically a first time writer/director who brought this unique horror film to the screen. Set in Detroit (but filmed in Bulgaria), the film stars Georgina Campbell and Bill Skarsgard who both check into the same double booked Airbnb. We won't say anything more, but if you're a horror movie fan you probably want to check this film out. Lot of surprises in this one that we thoroughly spoil in this hawt take!
Episode 138 - Jaws In IMAX Review
The classic Steven Spielberg film Jaws was re-released into IMAX theaters this Labor Day weekend so we decided to see it big! And we took a Lodger to see it who had somehow never seen it before! The 1975 blockbuster changed the course of cinema and it still holds up today. You know all about it, but we'll mention that it stars Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton, and a shark named Bruce! John Williams provides the famous score, and it's based on the 1974 novel by Peter Benchley, who wrote the screenplay with Carl Gottlieb. We'll talk about all things Jaws and get the full reaction of a person who has never seen it!
Hawt🔥Takez - Orphan: First Kill Review
September 3rd, 2022 was National Cinema Day and we celebrated by seeing the new horror movie Orphan: First Kill. The theater was packed as everyone was pumped to see the prequel to the 2009 film Orphan. It somehow stars the same actress Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther, along with Julia Stiles, Rossif Sutherland (son of Donald), and Hiro Kanagawa as a hard-charging detective. This horror movie was directed by William Brent Bell and written by David Coggeshall, and was shot in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Were we scared? Were we knocked out by the twist? We'll let you know as we celebrate cinema in movie theaters!
Episode 137 - Three Thousand Years of Longing Review
Director George Miller returns at the age of 77 with his first feature film since Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). This one is called Three Thousand Years of Longing and stars Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba. Based on the 1994 short story "The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye" by A. S. Byatt, this movie has Elba star as a genie who tells mythical recollections to a lonely British scholar played by Tilda Swinton. The film crosses many genres and was a box-office bomb, and we definitely think you should see it!
Episode 136 - Terror On The Prairie Review
Terror on the Prairie is one the first films released by The Daily Wire Plus! A new streaming service from Ben Shapiro's right wing media company The Daily Wire. This western set in Montana stars cancelled MMA fighter Gina Carano and is directed by Michael Polish (Twin Falls Idaho). Some other actors in the film are Nick Searcy, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, Tyler Fischer, and Daniel Day-Lewis's son Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis. Few publications have covered this movie, but we were not afraid! We'll let you know what we saw!
Episode 135 - Both Sides Of The Blade Review
French film director Claire Denis returns to the international film scene with her new film Both Sides of the Blade. The last film she directed called High Life (2018) left quite an impression on us when we did a podcast review of it back in May of 2019. That film starred Juliette Binoche, and now Binoche is back in Both Sides of the Blade alongside actor Vincent Lindon (Titane). We had heard that this film was an erotic thriller, but in actuality it is a romantic drama. We saw it at the Laemmle Glendale.
