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.

We listened to your feedback and now it’s time to take your good advice.

We’re excited to announce our first ever retro podcast. What better place to launch during these “unprecedented” times of global turmoil and isolation than with a list of our Comfort Food Flicks.

Different from Favourites these are like the Chicken Soup of cinema to us. The films Jon and Adam turn to in challenging times to escape into the magical world of moving pictures.

FRAKKING TOP 20 FAVOURITE FILMS OF 2019

Adam & Jon’s Frakking Favourite Films of 2019

***DISCLAIMER: We apologize for the poor audio quality of our first international broadcast. The intent was to share a video chat we had via Skype but the app defaults to 15 fps instead of 24-30 fps and no matter how it was converted both audio and video were unusable. We are now looking into alternatives to enter the video age. Thank you. 

Good news Frak fans. The wait is almost over!

As regular readers/listeners will know Film Frak has been on hiatus the last 9 months, but the new and improved or is that improvised Film Frak podcast will be returning very soon...

Adam & Jon’s Frakking Favourite Films of 2018

2018 saw our Film Frak podcast continue to flourish even as we failed to mentally mature a single frame. Aside from the audience multiplying we also managed to get some modicum of attention from filmmakers we admire via interweb/social media kismet interaction. Namely we loved their work and they happily encouraged us. Sure that’s probably more exciting for us than you, but hey this is the end of year wrap up and it’s time for a little self-love from this pair of wankers.

Staying on that theme this year was the stuff that dreams are made of as far as guest interviews. Thanks to fan of the show Steve Joiner for reaching out and offering his services...

FilmFrak Jon’s Marvel Rankings

By: Jon Caron

Ever since I can remember, the numerous characters of the Marvel universe have been a giant part of my life. I’ve gone on countless adventures with these fictional beings that have shaped the way I view the real world and what could be possible in the infinite cosmos that we take for granted as we casually drift through it with our eyes forward, instead of up into the vast wonderment of it all. These heroes and villains, which make up this fantastical universe have gone through many iterations, changing throughout the years, dying, being reborn, finding love and losing it.

Part of what makes Marvel so wonderful, is their understanding of what makes a character great...

Adam & Jon’s Frakking Favourite Films of 2017

2017 saw us Frakkers hit a groove in our second year of recording the show. Our simple vision of sharing a hyperactive passion for films in an unedited freestyle chat expanded beyond our own insular desires.

Thanks to unforeseen listeners who liked our “enthusiasm” and reached out this year we had the honor of interviewing a treasure trove of talent. From impossible realities like cult master Larry Cohen to martial arts legends of our VHS obsessed childhoods like Don ‘The Dragon” Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock. Upcoming head kickers and stunt daredevils like Brahim Achabbakhe to ignore the odds creators who forge their own destiny like Jino Kang...

FilmFrak’s 20 Great Horror Films for Halloween

It’s Halloween and that means most of us horror fiends are staying up beyond the midnight hour with our unblinking eyeballs weeping blood in a motion picture induced haemolacriao. The juicy marrow of fear, frights and fun that the genre can offer feeding some sick desire for visceral voyeurism and boundary violation.

Seeking ideas about what to watch on the 31st, Jon and Adam have spewed up a random list of horror favourites that quench the thirst for blood around this time of year. Entertaining and frightening some will make you giggle, some will make you gasp but all have celluloid imagery to scar the psyche.

So it is with little fore-thought, here are 10 great horror movies from each of us...

Adam & Jon’s Frakking Favourite Films of 2016

*FilmFrak theme as Fanfare plays*

Well that happened. In April 2016 Jon and Adam teamed up to broadcast the very first episode of the podcast…and someone listened. Spawned out of desperation to somehow legitimize a lifetime spent individually feeding their obscene cinema obsessions and their singular drives to endlessly discuss all things motion picture with anyone in shouting distance. The mere whiff of encouragement they received from a small band of merry frakkers was enough so that this pair of anti-social degenerates is now airing their 10th episode. So first we would like to say thank you so much for tuning in.

2016 toyed with expectations as many of the franchise blockbusters disappointed but the sleeper and creeper hits from around the...

Top 20 Most Fraking Anticipated Films of 2016

neon demon banner

2015 was a pretty frakking stellar year for cinema. So much so I had to indulge in some numerical yoga with the Frakking Favourite 25 Films of 2015 list by adding 21 additional “Honorable Mentions”.

Breaking my usual ritual of obsessively researching the upcoming 12 month of cinema releases around New Years, it’s now the end of February and I’ve only just finished compiling the 2016 list. That means certain titles like THE REVENANT, HAIL CESEAR, TRIPLE-NINE and THE WITCH have already hit movie-houses and won’t feature. As of today there is officially 79 enticing films due to hit screens this year that made the short-list, here are the top 25!

Scratch that! Firstly, because I’m OCD in my studies, there were a few films from my Top 30 Most Fraki...

The frakker saw 91 films in 2015 and though there were some outright duds (TERMINATOR GENYSIS, SELF-LESS, THE VISIT) and failed to meet expectations disappointments (EVEREST, TALES OF HALLOWEEN, TRAINWRECK) for the most part it was a golden year in cinema. That I had to make a top 25 and then add an additional 20 plus titles to the honorable mentions is proof of the good time that was had in the darkened movie house this past 12 months. Now the preamble is done, there is just one more thing that I need to get out of the way before we can begin….
