Episodes

Ep 371 - Alien: Covenant - Amy Miller  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: ALIEN: COVENANT, SNATCHED, MIFUNE: THE LAST SAMURAI, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST ASSHOLES, THE GLASS CASTLE* Graham and Chris welcome first time guest, Amy Miller into ATC HQ. Graham and Chris split on Alien. Amy thinks Snatched is a fine film with wine. Graham nerded out on the Mifune doc. Transformers trailer is longer than the film. Glass Castle is an odd choice. Several good films out on DVD and a horrible weekend for new films. This is the best episode for an off brand Megan Fox. 

Ep 370 - King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword - Steve Gillespie  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: KING ARTHUR, SLEIGHT, THE RED TURTLE, CHASING THE LOTUS, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, WONDER WOMAN* Graham and Chris welcome first time guest, Steve Gillespie into the ATC dungeon. Steve talks about his new stand-up comedy album, Alive on State Street and how King Arthur left him bored. Graham found Sleight to be Dope light. Chris liked the animated poetry of The Red Turtle. Surfing doc, Chasing The Lotus, is great for surfers like Graham but maybe not everyone else. New Planet Of The Apes trailer looks good while everyone is not sure about Wonder Woman. Will Alien be any good or does Wimpy Kid stay in an attic and watch his family. This ep is the final chapter!

Spoiler Ep 54 - Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2  - Jackie Kashian  

*SPOILER ALERT! KEY ELEMENTS OF FILM, INCLUDING ENDING, WILL BE DISCUSSED* Resident Marvel expert, Jackie Kashian, joins Graham and Chris to discuss why Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is so great! 

Ep 369 - Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 - David Huntsberger  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, RUBY RIDGE, THE DARK TOWER, BLADE RUNNER 2049* David Huntsberger is back to talk about his new(ish) podcast and comedy album! Graham and Chris both really liked Guardians 2. David wants people to see Nocturnal Animals. Graham found a good PBS doc about Ruby Ridge. Dark Tower trailer left all three wondering if the film will be any good. Blade Runner 2049 full trailer raised many questions. This ep will make you want to ride a horse with a show saddle! 

Ep 368 - The Circle - Steve Byrne  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: THE CIRCLE, BOSS BABY, SANDY WEXLER, 47 METERS DOWN, ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENICE* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest Steve Byrne into ATC Studios! Graham was not a fan of The Circle. Steve and his kid loved Boss Baby. Chris needed 3 days to watch Sandy Wexler. 47 Meters down is either a great wink at shark terror films or a disaster. Once Upon A Time In Venice might be suffering from bad trailer disease. Some good films out on DVD if you missed them. Even Chuck is going to see Guardians of The Galaxy 2 this weekend! This episode is really America's Julia Roberts. 

Ep 367 - The Promise - Faith Choyce  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: FREE FIRE, THE PROMISE, THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER, THE SEVEN FIVE, DRONE, KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest Faith Choyce into the ATC studios. Faith talks about why Free Fire was better than she expected. Chris liked first time director Oz Perkins film, The Blackcoat's Daughter. Graham talks about the politics surrounding The Promise and why it should be seen. If you like corrupt cop docs like Graham then you will like The Seven Five. Drone trailer gives away too much. New Kingsman film might be better than first. Dancing and fighting are in new DVDs while a Latin Circle enters the theater.

Ep 366 - The Fate Of The Furious - Troy Conrad  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, COLOSSAL, POWER RANGERS, STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI, DETROIT, THE FOUNDER, PUNCHING HENRY* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest Troy Conrad into ATC studios. Troy talks about his unique show, Set List. Graham and Chris loved the dumb fun of Fast 8. Chris finally saw Power Rangers and found it to be all over the place. Troy didn't like Colossal until the end. Everyone is pumped for some Last Jedi. Detroit appears to be another solid film from Kathryn Bigelow. Punching Henry rounds out a good DVD list which makes the awful new releases not sting so much. This episode will have you realize that it's all about family...14 times. 

Ep 365 - Personal Shopper - Jordan Brady  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: YOUR NAME, PERSONAL SHOPPER, THIER FINEST, THOR: RAGNAROK, CHUCK, THE MUMMY* Graham and Chris welcome back Jordan Brady. Jordan talks about his new documentary, I Am Battle Comic. Chris loved the anime film Your Name. Graham likes the ghosts of Personal Shopper. Jordan enjoyed Their Finest. Thor trailer is getting everyone excited, while The Mummy looks like a waste of time. Two good Oscar films are out on DVD. If you like cars, submarines and ice then this weekend if for you! This ep will get you lost in the Amazon looking for a gifted kid. 

Ep 364 - T2 Trainspotting - Dino Stamatopoulos & Leah Tiscione  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: T2 TRAINSPOTTING, I DONT FEEL AT HOME IN THE WORLD ANYMORE, GIMME DANGER, IT, MACK WELDON* Chris and Graham welcome first time guests Leah Tiscione and Dino Stamatopoulos. They talk about their graphic novel Trent. Graham found T2 to be just ok. Leah and Dino liked the Iggy Pop documentary, Gimme Danger. Chris was pleased with indie film, I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore. Graham was the only one scared by the It trailer. Everyone is excited for new Planet of The Apes film. Rouge One is the only DVD to concern yourself with. A colossal blue style jesus is opening in theaters. The ultimate Bergman episode.

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.

Spoiler Ep 53 - Logan  

*SPOILER ALERT! KEY ELEMENTS OF FILM WILL BE DISCUSSED INCLUDING ENDING* Graham, Chris and Sam Tripoli talk about why they loved Logan.

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. Chris and Nick liked Logan a lot. Graham and Nick were excited about Get Out. New Alien trailer looks good. All three were a little confused about War Machine. Good DVDs and two very different films coming out in theaters. This ep is all about the S and B!

Ep 359 - Oscar Wrap-up - Murray Valeriano  

It's the first ever show recorded at the All Things Comedy Studio. Chris and Graham welcome back comedian Murray Valeriano. Murray's wife, Mary Zophres, was nominated for costume design so we get the full run down on the best picture mix up and more! It's a CFN Oscar exclusive! Better than candy falling from the sky.

*FILMS DISCUSSED: FIFTY SHADES DARKER, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, GHOST IN THE SHELL, PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES* Laura House is back talking about her new meditation podcast. 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.

*FILMS DISCUSSED: HELL OR HIGH WATER, LIFE ANIMATED, BATMAN RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS, MISS SHARON JONES, LOGAN, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest and documentarian Nate Gowtham.

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. John is president of Open Primaries and talks about how 13th shows what needs to be fixed in American politics.
