FILM FRAK PODCAST #34: 2020 Films Catch-Up

Film Frak Podcast 34 Banner

Episode 34 Website Banner

Welcome to Episode 34 of the Film Frak podcast.

That’s right! It happened!
Film Frak has entered a brave new virtual age. The dawning of sight and sound broadcasting on a global scale with Jon in New Hampshire and Adam in Perth.

For this premiere video episode we pack in all the cinephilic (cinephalic?) banter you’ve come to expect but with an added obstacle beyond the obvious camera thing. For A/V reasons Adam & Jon must try not talk over each other in the Zoom studio. No small ask.

So what are our smiling frakking hosts talking about on camera today anyway? Looking back at a few 2020 titles we have escaped into during these “unprecedented times”

NOT FOR RESALE
CAPONE
EXTRACTION
THE GENTLEMEN
UNDERWATER
THE INVISIBLE MAN
COLOR OUT OF SPACE
COME TO DADDY

As requested, please let ...

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...

Film Frak: The Podcast#32: HIATUS Anouncement

FB_Banner_Episode_32_Dundee_OCT2019

Welcome to Film Frak: Episode 32

Regular listeners we need to apologize. It’s been a longtime in a galaxy far, far away since our last episode. Truth be told this one was recorded in June and it’s taken us until now to actually broadcast…but we have a good excuse. Film Frak Adam has aborted the American Dream and returned to that land down under.

Travelling internationally, setting up a new life, separation anxiety and mixed emotions at leaving the land of John Wayne and admittedly Film Frak Jon has meant that honestly until now Adam couldn’t face writing this lead-in.

Anyway, enough with the excuses, on with the show...

Film Frak: The Podcast#31: Frakking Most Anticipated of 2019

Welcome to Film Frak: Episode 31

With our best of 2018 episode in the rearview it’s time to look towards the future. Before that however we do some final 2018 housekeeping as well as examine some early 2019 entries that we’ve caught.

This month we review:

  • Velvet Buzzsaw
  • Polar
  • Piercing
  • Beast
  • High Flying Bird
  • Reign of the Supermen
  • Standoff at Sparrow Creek
  • Free Solo
  • Joan Jett

…then it’s onto the real business of the day with some 2019 releases that show the kind of traits we are lured by around these parts. We speculate on what they may deliver and why they have our attention.

Only time will tell which movies deliver and which fail t...

FRAKKING TOP 20 FAVOURITE FILMS OF 2018

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...

Film Frak: The Podcast#29: THE FAVOURITE OVERLORD

Welcome to Film Frak: Episode 29

Prepare for a bumper edition of the Film Frak Podcast as we dive into 2 months of viewing all in one epic show. We missed recording a November show and I’m sure all you Frakkers are jonesing for your fix of our unique brand of movie bullshit.

It’s the business end 2018 so that means there’s titles galore that we were excited to see. The must-see list was getting checked off and there was plenty of cinematic joys experienced.

With so many screenings we decided to trim down the films we actually chatted about and didn’t bother with the disappointments or uninspired so here’s the final line-up for this episode:

Film Frak: The Podcast#28: THE VENOM OF MANDY

Welcome to Film Frak: Episode 28

Well you frakkers it’s October and you know what that means. It’s the month of horror. Sure we cover some other genres this show as the month has only just begun but of the nine flicks discussed 4 are new horror titles that achieve varying degrees of success or failure.

Aptly as a bonus Jon also deep dives into the traumatic nightmare of mental illness that is the console video game HELLBLADE.

We hope you have a frightfully ghoulish all hallows month full of things that go bump in the night. If you’re doing the 30 for 30 horrortober challenge would love to hear about some of the titles your screening.

Here’s the break...
