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.

We’re back for our second show of 2017 and it’s one that will go down in history. This episode we go off script to singlehandedly solve all of Hollywood and society’s problem regarding diversity and quality representation.

If the sheer genius of our wisdom beholden upon humanity isn’t enough to make you listen we also discuss a slew of new releases starting with the creature feature LIFE. Then it’s onto the horror of GET OUT, THE VOID, THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, DEVIL’S CANDY and THE LOVE WITCH. Finally we cover 20TH CENTURY WOMEN, LOGAN, KONG: SKULL ISLAND and I DON’T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE. There is even talk of the retro EVILD DEAD 2/ARMY OF DARKNESS screening hosted by Jon himself.

Until next month, as always we encourage all feedback and thank you for listening.
