The beautiful, wise and deadly Cynthia Rothrock honors us in conversation as our special guest in another FilmFrak exclusive.

Welcome to Film Frak: The Podcast 16

In an attempt to thrust the audience into a totally immersive sensory experience of a singular moment in history your two intrepid cinema podcasters stumbled into the studio early Saturday morning…too early Saturday morning to record what will be remembered as the episode where Jon and Adam agree on relatively everything. While there is a lack of spitfires shot in 70mm while strafing, no apes on horseback and the total absence of a civilian navy heading to the rescue all those things and  more are discussed.

We open the show with the snowbound murder/mystery WIND RIVER then we gallop towards THE DARK TOWER. Next we go into the military zone for DUNKIRK, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES and VALERIAN...

Welcome to FilmFrak The Podcast 14

As Adam and Jon nurse the consequences of nocturnal addictions from the evening before things start off a little low energy this month…but fear not dear listeners once the chatter turns to cinematic obsessions things get lively fast.

This episode the woman with the lasso of truth and an invisible plane (not that it’s in the film but even if it were, would we see it?) takes the lead as we talk WONDER WOMAN.

ALIEN CONVENANT, WAR MACHINE, BAYWATCH, YOUR NAME, KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD, THE CIRCLE and LEGO BATMAN follow. Then we turn our attention to the film we just screened before the show, FREE FIRE. The documentaries MIFUNE: THE LAST SAMURAI and BORN IN CHINA are touched upon and much love for the retro 4K cinema screening of HIGHLANDER.

Welcome to FilmFrak Podcast 13. Things get a little rowdier than usual this episode when Jon and Adam break their SPOILERS rule while exchanging body blows discussing PERSONAL SHOPPER. Consider this a courtesy warning for those who haven’t seen it. (Review starts at the 59.00 minute mark for those who wish to avoid knowing the films secrets)

It’s not all violence and mayhem, first there’s an impromptu state of the MCU chat fuelled by the release of GAURDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2. Next is GHOST IN THE SHELL, COLOSSAL, THE LOST CITY OF Z and then comes PERSONAL SHOPPER.

After that things calm down as THE PROMISE, PATERSON, A MONSTER CALLS, GIFTED, THE ASSIGNMENT and THE FOUNDER are focused on. The Netflix documentary 5 CAME BACK is briefly touched on as is a retro-screening of TREMORS.

Until nex...
