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...

Welcome to FilmFrak: The Podcast Episode 9. As usual, the arrival of November sees a temptation alley of titles hit cinemas. So many on the must-see list are releasing right now and Jon and Adam got to check a few off their list. There are still a slew of 2016 films due before the end of the year we want to catch and you should get out there too because there seems to be something for everyone at the moment.

So what are we going to talk about today? Let’s start with Dennis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated sci-fi ARRIVAL. After that it’s a trio of WWII combatants with HACKSAW RIDGE, ANTHROPOID and ALLIED. Next we do horror Director Ti West’s B-Western IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE before slipping south of the border for TRANSPECOS...

Welcome to FilmFrak: The Podcast#8. A little less cinematic consumption of 2016 releases since last we hung out doesn’t reduce the chatter. Jon takes the opportunity to lay some knowledge on us about the game changing home cinema tech marvel that is LG OLED screens.

As for the reason you tune in (other than our charming personalities) the film reviews this month take off with the latest MCU adventure DR. STRANGE. We then chew on some Korean horror in the form of TRAIN TO BUSAN and THE WAILING followed by THE ACCOUNTANT, GIRL ON THE TRAIN, A BIGGER SPLASH and NERVE.

The 4K/HD Werner Herzog documentary INTO THE INFERNO is next before we go retro with WILLOW and a little more Pam Grier love for JACKIE BROWN.

Our main feature of the day is the much buzzed about, highly anticipated THE HANDMAI...

Welcome to FilmFrak: The Podcast#7 . It’s October and as the gauntlet of the Halloween challenge is picked up by cinephiles everywhere we front load the 7th episode to focus on horror.

That’s why this month’s chatter starts with talk of BASKIN, BLAIR WITCH, 31, JERUZALEM, I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER and LIGHTS OUT. After that it’s onto TOO LATE, SNOWDEN, CAFE SOCIETY, BORN TO BE BLUE, HARD TARGET 2 and the documentaries RAIDERS: THE STORY OF THE GREATEST FAN FILM EVER MADE and FOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK. On the retro-bigscreen Carpenter’s THEY LIVE and a 70mm festival including WEST SIDE STORY, SPARTACUS and Disney’s SLEEPING BEAUTY are reviewed. Topping it all off is a 35mm screening of FOXY BROWN and JACKIE BROWN with Pam Grier in attendance at the cinema.

As always if you want these frakkers t...

FilmFrak: The Podcast#5: SOME THINGS ARE FANTASTIC!

So it is that with the earworm, “Ricky Baker…Ricky Baker…Ricky Baker” refusing to leave our heads that we present you with Podcast #5. Tune in to hear our patented half-finished sentences, rambling nonsensical logic trees and consistently shouty delivery as we ponder the state of modern civilization, libertarianism, the definition of “real world fantasy” and other themes from this month’s new releases.

Proving his lack of dedication, yet again Adam has managed to avoid the cinematic gambles and left poor old Jon to slog through the dregs...

FilmFrak: The Podcast#4: ARE WE THAT SHALLOW?

FB_Banner_SWISSARMYMAN_Episode_4

What a fucking ride! Running on minimal sleep and a hazy hangover we’ve just driven many miles from an overnight adventure to NYC to worship at the temple of John Carpenter Live. Dedicated to our small but loyal audience we’ve decided to forego personal hygiene, cerebral lucidity or a snooze to record a rambling retelling of our cinematic adventures.

Aside from our pilgrimage to witness the synthesized power of JC we will also talk about retro 35mm screenings of THE BREAKFAST CLUB and EL TOPO along with SWISS ARMY MEN, NEON DEMON, THE SHALLOWS. DEMOLITION, KNIGHT OF CUPS, FINDING DORY, ID4: RESURGENCE, EVERYBODY WANTS SOME, APPROACHING THE UNKNOWN, THE TRUST, EYE IN THE SKY and the bewildering documentary TICKLED.

As if that’s not enough we are so in love with our own voices that we rattl...

FilmFrak: The Podcast#3: WE’RE NOT THAT NICE

FB_Banner_WARCRAFT_Episode_3

Well, it’s a trilogy. This thing is happening and after 3 shows we are happy as Bruce Willis dancing a Last Boyscout jig.

June 2016 was littered with cinematic black holes of apocalyptic proportions and guess which one of us High Noon-ed that shit for the good of the cause? Quick clue: It wasn’t your friendly narrator who may, or may not have been turned into an Orc on this month’s banner.

So what did we watch since last we met? What will we talk about? Well there was a screening of the LOST BOYS DCP on a giant IMAX screen. There was also SCARFACE on a brand new 35mm print. On the 2016 releases front we try to stay on topic with THE NICE GUYS, MOJAVE, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, ZOOTOPIA, MONEY MONSTER, CONCUSSION, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2, GODS OF EYGPT, KINDERGARTEN COP 2 and MR. RIGHT...

So you gave us a listen and then you encouraged us. Big Mistake, YOUR mistake! You said Beetlejuice three times. You said Candyman in a mirror. Hell you were crazy enough to walk upstairs and see what was making all that noise. You validated us and now Adam & Jon are doing this thing for real. Sure it sounds like we are bullshitting away as usual, but in our hearts we’re now taking this thing seriously. We even have an Act 1: Past – Act 2: Present – Act 3: Future format now like real professionals.

Looking back on what we watched since last we met this episode we chat about our HITCHCOCK marathon, MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, HIGH-RISE, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, HARDCORE HENRY, CRIMINAL, TRIPLE-9...
