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: 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...

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?

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...

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...

FilmFrak: The Podcast #1: Introductions

FilmFrakBanner_DRAFT

FilmFrak_Podcast_Banner

You know what the Google machine needs? Abso-fraking-lutely, it’s another movie podcast by a pair of loudmouthed wannabe filmmakers/critics arbitrarily spewing vitriol or adoration about their cinematic adventures. The FilmFrak podcast, just what you always wanted, right?

Your hosts Adam & Jon are a cantankerous duo of one-step-from-rehab movie junkies haphazardly bullshitting about all things that feed their cinephiliac obsessions. From the latest new releases all the way back to the silent era. Across all genres and types, blockbusters to micro budget shorts, animation and documentary there are no limitations here.

Who knows where this goes? They certainly don’t but if you want to find out give Adam & Jon a listen below.
