There’s a storm coming Frakkers,

Film Frak Adam and Jon continue their Comfort Food Flicks series with something a little different.

In Episode 3 we throw down about a subject that has torn them apart since we met. We are going to try and answer one of the most argued questions in the history of cinema, which is the superior film THE TERMINATOR (1984) or TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY

Listen, and understand! Film Frak is out there! We can’t be bargained with. We can’t be reasoned with. We don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And we absolutely will not stop… ever, until we have an answer!

Every cinema lover ha...

Film Frak Interview Special: ALL HAIL THE POPCORN KING Director Hansi Oppenheimer

Film Frak Adam & Jon sit down via Zoom with Squee Projects Founder, writer/Producer/Director and all-round fangirl Hansi Oppenheimer to discuss her latest film ALL HAIL THE POPCORN KING. A documentary feature about Screenwriter and Author Joe R Lansdale of BUBBA HO-TEP, COLD IN JULY and HAP & LEONARD fame.

Talking all things Lansdale including Bruce Campbell, Mick Garris and Don Coscarelli as well as the Squee Project and documentary production in general this was truly a pleasure.

It’s been many moons since we last did an interview. For those interested it was October 2018 with production Designer extraordinaire Joe Alves (JAWS, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND)...

A review by Adam Lovett

Writer/Director: Bob Byington

Starring: Kaley Wheless, Nick Offerman, Martin Starr, Jennifer Prediger, Keith Poulson, John Gatins

“Was this breaking the law?” our narrator asks repeatedly in this probing dark satire. It’s a question that can be aimed at multiple targets. Taking a dry ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT mockumentary approach this disquieting comedy is genuinely uncomfortable while amusing with its sensationalism free approach to a real-life sex scandal...

Greetings Frakkers.

Welcome to our second retro podcast special Comfort Food Flicks series.

You can watch Part 1 HERE

For those who missed last week’s launch. Here’s a quick rundown of what we are talking about.

During these “unprecedented” times of global turmoil and isolation we decided to list some of our Comfort Food Flicks.

Different from Favourites these are like the Chicken Soup of cinema to us. The films Jon and I turn to in challenging times to escape into the magical world of moving pictures. Movies we know inside out that have become part of our DNA. They are more like old friends at this point there to make us smile and remind us why we are addicted to the medium.

A review by Adam Lovett

Writer/Director: Abel Ferrara
Starring: Willem Dafoe, Dounia Sichov, Simon McBurney, Laurent Arnatsiaq

“I want to see if we can really film dreams—our fears, our regrets, our nostalgia.”Abel Ferrara for Sundance 

Our dreams seldom if ever make complete sense in the waking hours. More often than not they are utterly bewildering. That doesn’t mean we don’t find reward in the search for their meaning or recalling certain searing images from within them...

FORMAN vs FORMAN (2020)

A review by Adam Lovett

Director(s): Jakub Hejna, Helena Trestíková

Starring: Milos Forman

Oscar winning Director Milos Formans’ daunting filmography includes ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST, AMADEUS, THE PEOPLE VERSUS LARRY FLYNT and MAN ON THE MOON. That alone would be enough to warrant an examination of his life but as the documentary FORMAN vs. FORMAN reveals his personal story is one that carries all the themes and ideals of his work. The pulsing desire for freedom of expression, of self. An inherit revolution against oppressive authority, or limitations...

THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS (2020)

A review by Adam Lovett

Writer/Director: Ivan Castell
Starring: John Carpenter, Carpenter Brut, Power Glove, Gunship, Miami 1984, Stallone 80, Gost

Nostalgia. In 2020 it’s a term that tends to be assigned as criticism. A shorthand for derivative, vapid art aimed at an audiences arrested development. Living in the past and achieving entertainment value only for those cursed by it. So, before I even begin this review let me just confess that around the neon soaked virtual halls of Film Frak the word “nostalgia” is not a negative in and of itself...
