    Batman Forever

    Swoop in with your hosts as they unmask Joel Schumacher’s Batman cinematic universe, disagree over the entire 3rd Act, and admire the scene depicting the origins of Robin (and the Batnipples!).

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Bustin’ makes Isaac and Chris feel good about Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021). Does this mystery successfully deliver its spooks, expand the mythology, and satisfy kids and adults alike? Or does this astonishingly bad movie offer nothing new?


    Cross over with your hosts as they marvel at the star-making performance of McKenna Grace, discuss the Ghostbusters’ vocal online fan-base, and praise Jason Reitman’s taking on the directing family legacy.

    Prometheus

    Prometheus

    Chris and Isaac make contact with Prometheus (2012). Is this delightful (albeit deadly) romp a satisfying story about scientists searching for their maker? Or do you think the filmmakers must have sold their souls to get this stupid movie to succeed? 


    Join your hosts as they cover Ridley Scott’s directing career, wonder if Michael Fassbender is an android, and admit the “Alien cesarean scene” alone is worth the price of admission.

Why does my review need a title?

This show is great. The constructive debate demonstrates a real understanding and passion for films, which makes for great banter. When underscored by Chris’s trouble pronouncing names and Issac’s exacting nature, it makes for a show worth coming back to week after week. Keep it up!

MY take?

UM yeah, I’ve got a take: This podcast rules! Isaac and Chris know their stuff and make compelling arguments for and against their picks. Unfortunately for Chris, The Lighthouse is a perfect film. You hear me, Chris? How does it feel to be dead wrong?? Anyway, if you like great film podcasts, you found one. Plus? These 2 are absolute cutie pies. OK see ya
