Movie Issues: The Crow

So this week the boys decided to rock on back to the 1990s and relive their high school years where goth kids were just starting their fight against the normal regime that is society.When NIN and The Cure were gospel, and The Crow was a movie that Spooky couldn’t live without.

Movie Issues: ParaNorman

ParaNorman is the new stop motion animated movie from Focus Features, who previously gave us the 2009 Coraline. ParaNorman focuses on a young boy, Norman, who is the town pariah because of his unnatural ability to talk with dead people which causes him day-to-day drama. His inability to relate to his family or his peers keeps Norman at arms length from society until he realizes his ability might be the only thing that can save the town from a witch’s 300-year-old curse; leading him and an unlikely group of kids to save the day.

The film’s writers have created a movie that is fun for all ages and feels like a mix between Ghostbusters and The Goonies. It’s a fun and hilarious story that isn’t afraid to mess with genre expectations.

All good things must come to a end. And Arnold Schwarzenegger month is no exception.

Today we talk about our final Schwarzenegger movie, 1990’s Total Recall. Yes, you can go see the new one today in theaters, but when you done doing that you can also listen to the guys throw some love towards Quato, the three-breasted woman, and of coarse our favorite she-dragon Sharon Stone.

Movie Issues: Commando

The Arnold Schwarzenegger love train continues to move on. This week the guys decide to go back to what Arnold is most known for: kicking major ass! We watched 1985’s classic: Commando, where Arnold has to save his daughter from a warlord and takes on entire army by himself. Also we do a little Comic Con recap, where Leland tells the tales of being in the presence of Schwarzenegger himself!  Read On

Movie Issues: Junior

The train continues as we celebrate the god of action movies: Arnold Schwarzenegger!

But every action hero must try new things, and Arnold is no exception. It’s not a new concept in Hollywood to take the manly man and dress him in drag for comedy. But that’s not good enough for our boy Schwarzenegger; instead he dresses in drag and gets pregnant.

Yes, that’s right folks, we watched Junior. Oh, it’s just terrible. Join us for a laugh as we discuss this “special” classic movie!

Movie Issues Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Movie Issues Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Starting with 2005’s Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan gave the world a new-and-improved Batman. Gone were the familiar flashy comic book stereotypes, replaced by a dark, gritty hero of today’s world in a realistic noir vibe. Batman Begins captured the imagination of comic fans and proved Batman could be more than what he had (d)evolved into in prior cinema efforts.

Following that film was Nolan’s The Dark Knight, where Batman once again proved himself king of the comic book heroes alongside a new and more twisted Joker than ever before.  Now the third and final installment in Nolan’s Batman trilogy has come to an end with The Dark Knight Rises, and what an end it is!

The film is nothing but brilliant from start to finish. It ends an amazing film series with a bang that will be talked about for years to come by film and comic fans alike.
