Welcome to Film Frak: The Podcast 17

Tune in for big news this month!

You may have heard the rumblings on TMZ and read rumors at The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the show.

Want to know who we have lined up for the coming weeks/months? Well you will just have to listen to the show to find out…or you can just expect us to blurt it all out social media sometime real soon.

From the Vault: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

Before I was the Fraker I was John Doe and like everything else in this universe all cinema itself is interconnected on a molecular level. Slowly over time I plan to import many of my older reviews over to this new site under the banner of FROM THE VAULT. The format is simple, anytime I review a film here and it can be thematically linked to a previous critique from the old site I will be sharing. With the release of DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES this weekend and my subsequent review which you can read HERE I figured this would be an ideal time for world’s to collide. Hope you like this trip into my past writerly adventures.

The movie house marquee flashes the latest releases, a Saturday matinee and tonight’s after dark double bill LE SAMOURAI & LEON: The PROFESSIONAL.

Under the pulsing neon FRAKER1 and FRAKER2 come into view. FRAKER1 is in his early 30’s. Tall with the look of a young Jeff Goldblum he struts like a scruffy lookin’ herder of some fantastical creature. ~FRAKER2, 41, walks with a slight limp out of habit and reminds of John Cazale.
