Movie reviews by stand-up comics and filmmakers Graham Elwood and Chris Mancini


Ep 363 - Power Rangers - Riley Silverman  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: POWER RANGERS, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, LIFE, JUSTICE LEAGUE, SPIDERMAN: HOMECOMING* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest, Riley Silverman into the ATC studios. Riley liked Power Rangers for what it was. Chris and his family found Beaty and The Beast to be ok but not better than the original. Graham wished Life never made it into movie theaters. Two super hero trailers that show the difference between DC and Marvel. One good monster of a DVD and no earthly reason to see new releases. This episode will make you want to drain the tent! 

Ep 362 - Beauty And The Beast - Ramon Rivas II  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, GET OUT, BELKO EXPERIMENT, COCO, DESPICABLE ME 3* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest, Ramon Rivas II. Graham liked Beauty and The Beast even though the movie was not for him. Chris liked low budget horror film, The Girl With All The Gifts. Ramon was happy he saw Get Out. Graham is all about Belko Experiment. Ramon saw two Elijah Wood classics. Coco trailer gave all three hope while no one is that pumped to see Despicable Me 3. Not sure what anyone can do with the lame slate of DVDs and new releases this week. An episode for all those who want a real life The Purge.

Ep 361 - Kong: Skull Island - Paul Gilmartin  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: KONG, SING STREET, LOGAN, WONDER WOMAN, BABY DRIVER* Paul Gilmartin is back with Chris and Graham at ATC studios. Chris liked Kong: Skull Island. Graham and Chris enjoyed the fun of Sing Street. Everyone is very skeptical about the Wonder Woman trailer, while Baby Driver looks slightly more promising. Paul talks about why documentaries are his favorite genre. Decent DVD and in theaters this week. An episode that encourages you to go up the river to battle demons.

Ep 360 - Logan - Nick Youssef  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: LOGAN, GET OUT, ALIEN COVENANT, WAR MACHINE* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest, Nick Youssef. Nick talks about an upcoming podcast and the history of the Comedy Store.

Good DVDs and two very different films coming out in theaters. This ep is all about the S and B!

Chris did not like Fifty Shades but Laura knew he wouldn't because it was not for him. Graham thinks I Am Not Your Negro is a great doc that America doesn't want to see. Ghost in the Shell keeps getting worse. Laura wants to see Javier Bardem as an ugly pirate. DVDs for every movie need and more movies to avoid while you are getting caught up on oscar films. You will need a spanking after listening to this ep.

Chris liked new Batman animated film but his kids did not. Graham wants everyone to know about Miss Sharon Jones. Nate talks about his doc, Colin Hay: Waiting for My Real Life. Three doc filmmakers talking about the process and some of the oscar nominations in the doc category. Logan and GOTG trailer look great! A couple of interesting DVDs and weirdness in theaters.

*SPOILER ALERT! KEY ELEMENTS OF FILM DISCUSSED INCLUDING ENDING* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest John Opdycke.

She talks about not playing Zoe in the new 24. Chris didn't like Trespass, Mary Lynn liked Natalie Portman in Jackie but the rest fell flat. Graham and Chris split on The Founder. Graham explains how good Lion is. Oscar nominations came out. Logan trailer looks good and Power Rangers is cat nip for boys. Weird DVD assortment and don't see A Dog's Purpose. This ep will make you want to live like a British Hillbilly.
