Hollywood's BIGGEST night is right around the corner... the Oscars are this Sunday, and this week on the podcast, myself and Justin are here to run down our picks for most of the categories. We've got a film or two yet to see ahead of the big show on Sunday!

Also this week, everyone's favorite rancid Hobster returns, upset he hasn't had any double cheese in awhile. Justin's stalker is still on the loose, and Nick got a brand new toy that he gives a huge thanks for in Thumbs of the Week. Thank you for listening! We'll see you at the movies!

Justin's back and the Oscars are just a little over two weeks away, so I'm still cleaning up some of the Oscar flicks I hadn't had the chance to see last year with reviews for Loving and Nocturnal Animals. Justin had the chance to check out John Wick 2, and for our feature review this week we're talking about The Lego Batman Movie.

Also this week, we've got some voicemails built up in Fanviews so we'll spin some of those late in the show, and we've got another great Kate Winslet clip as our February Featured Actress. We've got tons of your feedback in Thumbs of the Week as well! Loads of fun lie between here and the Oscars and we've got a super-packed March to look forward to at the theater. Thank you so much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!!

We've taken the rails and we've thrown them so far away that we may never find them again! Justin is taking a week off, so I simply opened the floodgates and invited any and every show from the #MoviePodSquad that was available for recording and they have answered the call! Tonight we are joined by Chris from the More Gooder Than Podcast, Dave and Jay from the Super Movie Bros pod, Shampu from Buds, Beers, Brutality & Fuzzy D from Who Spikes the Puns!

Aside from mainstays such as Thumbs of the Week and What're You Drinkin', we had a plethora of teasers drop during the Super Bowl last night for films coming all throughout 2017. So sit back and enjoy an extended edition of Epic Previews tonight, with discussions about Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, A Cure for Wellness, Baywatch, Ghost in the Shell, Life, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Logan, The Fate of the Furious, Transformers: The Last Knight, and one of our favorite shows from 2016, Stranger Things season 2!

I had an absolute blast recording with all of these guys, and we did record quite a bit more audio, but to keep the show from spilling into 2-1/2 hours I decided to save the AMA we mention during the recording for a later date. Thank you so much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!!

This week on the podcast, it is officially February, which means the countdown to the Oscars has begun! As of release day we're 24 days away from Hollywood's biggest night, and tonight it's time to bat clean-up on many of the films that Justin and myself have seen over the past several weeks but haven't had a chance to review. I'll touch on my weekend viewings of Florence Foster Jenkins and Captain Fantastic, and Justin will weigh in with some thoughts on The Founder and Jackie. We're also finally going to jump into a featured review once again on the podcast as we discuss La La Land! As you'll remember this film landed at #1 on Justin's top ten of 2016 and hit my #3, so it's safe to say we absolutely loved it.

We've also got your feedback this week in our Thumbs of the Week segment (final title, I swear!). We also have a plethora of iTunes reviews from the States and abroad, and this week we're also featuring our brand new featured actRESS... Kate Winslet! It was neck-and-neck between Tom Hanks and Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first few days and she had zero votes, but then the Winslet twitter fanbase came out in droves on twitter to register our highest vote count ever!

All this and plenty of other bits of fun and surprises as we roll toward the big show on February 26th. Thank you so much for listening... we'll see you at the movies!!!

One year ago we were proud to welcome Mason from Reel Dude Reviews to the podcast to count down our most anticipated films of 2016, and we had such a great time we're bringing him back again!! Mason returns and we've each got ten films that we can't wait to see in 2017, and my list in particular should have some striking absences if you're a regular fan of the show.

It's host-swap week! This week, Justin joined Caleb over on the Netflix n' Swill podcast, which you'll be able to hear on the 24th of January, and Dan once again joins me on the show! Not only are we featuring a Patrick Swayze clip this week for our Featured Actor segment, but we both watched a Patrick Swayze film for a bit of a retro review on the podcast with Donnie Darko. Fans of the show will know that Justin and regular listener Dylan Miles have been egging me to watch the film for ages... will they be happy with my reaction to it?

Also this week, we've got tons of your feedback in our Thumbs Up/Down segment, and we read your iTunes reviews! Thank you very much to everyone who submitted reviews. Dan also has his top ten films of 2016 at the top of the show as a tie-in to last week's episode, and he spends a good bit of time lavishing praise upon his #1 film of the year. We also touch on some movie news with your feedback.

Lastly, the second segment of the show is dedicated to a spoiler-free review of the latest from writer/director/star Ben Affleck, Live by Night. If you've already checked out my written review (find the link below), you know that I utterly detested the film, and I'll spend a bit of time elaborating on that in a segment-long edition of Nick's Rants.

Next week we'll be joined once again by Mason of Reel Dude Reviews for our Most Anticipated of 2017 episode. We're also going to be putting the word out shortly looking for a new crossover/mashup opportunity in February. If you're interested in doing a crossover, please let us know! Thank you very much for listening... we'll see you at the movies!!

It's finally time! We've seen all the movies we can possibly pack into our slate to fill out the movie year for 2016 and it's time to count down the best of the best. Justin and myself are here with our top ten films of 2016, as well as a few honorable mentions and some major disappointments. The list won't be without controversy for some listeners I'm sure, but that's us! We are who we are and we love what we love!

Also this week, our newest segment, thumbs up/thumbs down returns with YOUR feedback! We'll be opening this segment up each week for you to weigh in on what deserves a thumbs up or a thumbs down for that particular week. We've also got another Patrick Swayze clip for you this week as our January featured actor segment rolls on. All that and "What're ya Drinkin'?" and the Hobster stumbles his way in from yet another bender. Thank you very much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!!!

Happy New Year everyone! With 2017 officially here, Justin's back this week and we're premiering a brand-new segment: Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down! This is the segment where we'll toss a thumbs up or down (obviously) at the news of the day, a specific film, or something else that happened to us over the week. We'll keep tooling it, but it is the first of many new segments that will be premiering in the first couple episodes of the new year.

Though we briefly mentioned it last week, now that Justin is with me on the show we remember Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, and Justin talks about a Princess Leia action figure he just had to have and a lightsaber vigil.

We both had the opportunity to check out Fences since the last time we recorded, so we're also going to drop a full review! The film is directed by and stars Denzel Washington and also stars Viola Davis, so needless to say, I get my fanboy on.

All that, and in Epic Previews this week, we're touching on some trailers we didn't get a chance to review since Justin was last on the show- we'll talk about Denis Villaneuve's upcoming Blade Runner 2049, as well as Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant.

Our new featured actor for the month of January has been chosen, and Nick is NOT happy about it. We're here with the first clip for the month of January and a Fanviews voicemail from Justin of "So I Married a Movie Geek!" We'll see you at the movies!

Episode 078 - Goodbye 2016

00:0000:00

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Justin had a really full plate and couldn't make it on to record our final episode of 2016, so very good friend of the show Dan Brenic from the Netflix n' Swill podcast joins me to talk about a whole lot of... random nonsense!

The show begins on a bit of a somber note, as earlier the afternoon of recording day we learned that Carrie Fisher, legendary for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, passed away at the age of 60. We've got some brief thoughts about her and the future of the saga without her, but we're going to be revisiting her next week with a full retrospective and possibly commentary of A New Hope.

After that the rails come completely off the show, as I managed to salvage about 25 minutes of useable audio from nearly an hour of recording, some of which you can hear if you're a sponsor of the Epic Film Guys podcast. We'll talk about changes coming to the Epic Film Guys, what 2017 holds in store for us, and we've also got the final clip from this month's featured actor, Robin Williams. Thank you very much for listening everyone! Have a very happy New Year, and we'll see you at the movies.

Welcome everyone to another week of the Epic Film Guys podcast on Rogue One day! Justin and myself have our tickets for a 7:00 PM showing, so if you're hearing this on release day, we'll soon be in a theater far, far away for the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise: Rogue One! Our excitement is at a fever pitch, and this week we'll talk about our final hopes for the Episode IV prequel. Early word is good, and we hope for something beyond amazing!

Also this week, we're diving into another batch of trailers in Epic Previews! We'll take a look at the re-imagining of Baywatch starring The Rock and Zac Efron, we have some mixed feelings over the new MCU-produced Spider-Man: Homecoming, and we are practically salivating for War for the Planet of the Apes.

We also discuss some DCEU news this week, namely that David Ayer is going to be helming Gotham City Sirens starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. After our reaction to Suicide Squad, are we really sure we want this? All that, and we've got another amazing Robin Williams clip in our Featured Actor segment, and there's a ton of other fun stuff going on. Thanks for listening! We'll see you at the movies!

Justin had the opportunity to check out Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea, and he's got some bold predictions about his performance in a quick mini-review! We also continue the focus on this month's featured actor, the late great Robin Williams, with a clip from the classic Mrs. Doubtfire.

In Epic Previews this week, we're talking about the arrival of the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Justin expects Nick to hate it... but will he? We also talk about Tom Cruise starring in The Mummy, and wonder why every Transformers film looks the same with the trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight.

Finally, we're saying a fond farewell to the Lisp, a character who has been a part of the Epic Film Guys podcast for most of its existence. We've got a special goodbye for him before we finally announce the winner of the Where in the World is the Lisp prize pack. Thank you very much for listening; we'll see you at the movies!

We're back this week with an all-new episode, tightening the reins on the format. we've got a lot of great changes coming to the Epic Film Guys podcast in the coming weeks, between our new Spotlight segment and the expansion of our Featured Actor. We also talk Thanksgiving and wish Justin a happy birthday this week! We're also changing the promo format for the show, tightening the breaks and utilizing a new type of promos meant to promote new content each week.

This week in Epic Previews, Justin has a few things to get off his chest regarding the brand new Kong: Skull Island trailer with John C Reilly, and we also discuss the first trailer for Martin Scorsese's Silence. Then we're rolling into the third segment with the announcement of our December Featured Actor! Who is it? Let's just say... You've never had a friend like me.

All this, and we'll talk about a brand-new sponsor for the show, and we try to wish Podern Family a happy one year anniversary, but someone decides to show up and spoil the party. What new ailments does the Hobster have? You'll have to listen to find out! We'll see you at the movies!!

Eight months in the making... way back in Episode 36, during our Burton/Schumaker Batman retrospective, we introduced the first part of our Batman '89 live commentary! We popped the second part into episode 40 in the wake of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, back when we recorded the commentary in March, something went wrong. When I opened the files from Justin I found two part ones, and zero part twos! The second half of the original commentary was lost, and while we mentioned it a time or two, we never got back around to recording that second half... until now.

Now, finally, eight months later, we have re-recorded the lost half of our commentary, and I took the original audio tracks (since I opted to save everything until we finished it) and re-edited them, and re-mixed the tracks with the film's sound. So even if you did hear episodes 36 & 40, you are hearing a brand new edit of the original half, and our all-new recording for part two. The result? An epic celebration that we feel is worthy of our favorite film on the Epic Film Guys podcast.

How do you sync it with the film? EASY! The commentary begins where the film does- so start the commentary at the same time you start the film and enjoy it. We'll be back next week with a brand new episode of the podcast, including the start of a brand new segment and our farewell to the Lisp. Thank you for listening... we'll see you at the movies!!

The self-proclaimed "god of podcasting" has returned home to the main show... Epic Film Guy L-L-L-Loysauce joins myself and Justin for a colossal Arrival review! We kept the main review spoiler-free, but we did also discuss some of the film's spoilers and weightier themes in our spoiler review segment after the main episode ends. We definitely gave this review our all... give it a listen!

Also this week, we're reviewing two trailers in Epic Previews... we take a look at the first trailer for Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johannson and we're also going to check out the first feature trailer for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast remake starring Emma Watson. We've also got a very special clip in this week's featured actor segment, as Nick discusses his favorite film of all time with a scene from About Schmidt.

The guys also talk about what's coming next week on the podcast, and good news for Where in the World is the Lisp players- you've got until November 20th to get us that final answer for your last chance at winning the Epic Film Guys prize pack created by Emily from The Story Behind. All this and loads of fun... and the return of a drunken distraction that just won't stay gone. Thank you for listening... we'll see you at the movies!!

We are thrilled to be joined by Emily of the Story Behind podcast, who is on the show this week to talk about Where in the World is the Lisp? All the clues have been played, and now it's time for everyone to try to figure out where the Lisp has gone! Next week on the show we'll be drawing a winner for the prize pack and playing a special tribute to the Lisp.

We're also extremely excited to discuss one of our most anticipated films of the year this week, Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge! The film stars Andrew Garfield, Hugo Weaving, Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn and Teresa Palmer.

Also this week, we've got a couple voicemails to play in Fanviews, including some cleanup from the Horror Challenge and a participant check-in for Never-Seen-It November, although we are not officially tracking the challenge we do encourage anyone who wishes to participate to do so.

All this and a load of fun stuff crammed in, as well as another clip from this month's featured actor, Jack Nicholson. We'll see you at the movies!

In this Epic Film Guys Cinema Beat minisode, Justin & Loysauce give an in-depth review of the brand new Marvel film Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, and Mads Mikkelson. Please let us know what you thought of the film! MINOR SPOILERS are discussed very briefly from 26:20 to 27:00, but Justin notes that it shouldn't ruin the film for you anyway. Thanks so much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

In light of some recent occurrences, I've had to scale back the amount of work I'm doing on the show... most specifically, the amount of time spent working on the website, updating it for the horror challenge and the like. As I outlined in our November update (https://epicfilmguys.wordpress.com/november-2016-update/) the Never-Seen-It November challenge is now canceled, though we are not discouraging anyone from unofficially participating and letting us know on social media. 

The cancellation of the challenge is only part of many changes you'll see to the Epic Film Guys podcast in the coming weeks and months. We'll be aiming for some shorter shows in November as I prep for and participate in NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, which will require a lot of my attention. I also feel that time spent listing movie titles & participants in the show as shout-outs for monthly challenges is better spent devising and releasing new content and making for a better overall show experience, so my apologies to anyone who was looking forward to that continuing as it will not be. 

This week I'm spending some time to explain my headspace a little bit and pulling back the curtain ever-so-slightly on the podcast to explain what has been happening in my life. After talking with Justin this past weekend we decided to take this week off from recording, so aside from the new content I recorded you'll get some clips from our flashback episode from this time last year, cut content from weeks prior, and a whole slew of Epic Film Guys outtakes and bloopers. I do spend a little time talking movie news toward the back end of the show as well.

Our regular show will return next week. In the meantime, thank you all very much for listening... we'll see you at the movies!

Happy Halloween, everyone!!! All month long to now we've been celebrating everything horror, with our opening music to our Horror Challenge and the change from the Dose of Dangerfield over to the weekly horror clip. Last week, we aired Justin's interview with Cody Carpenter, and this week, we're celebrating one of the true icons of horror, his father, John Carpenter!! However, we could not undertake this kind of a tribute alone, and we've invited our good friends, Paul & Wayne from the Countdown Movie & TV Reviews back in the show for a mega John Carpenter retrospective! 

With our good friends from Perth here we'll also be discussing some movie news and we're looking at two trailers in Epic Previews; we've got the first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and we're looking at the trailer for Hugh Jackman's last turn as Wolverine in the r-rated Logan. We've also got week six of Where in the World is the Lisp, and we're airing your voicemails with your Fanviews clips! 

All this, and of course, we'll be running down the final week of the Epic Film Guys horror challenge with shout-outs for everything everyone has watched over the past week. While we'll continue updating the website with everyone's picks through October 31st, this will be the last week we're reading them on the air. We also have your week six clip for Where in the World is the Lisp... we're getting closer to finding out where he's been hiding! We'll see you at the movies!

A few weeks ago, Justin got the chance to sit down with Cody Carpenter, son of legendary horror and cult film director John Carpenter. We've got the entire interview as they talk about his music career as well as growing up with his famous father; it begins at about 19:23 and runs to approximately 39:30, if you want to skip ahead and check it out. 

We got two amazing treats for the show this week... Emily, formerly of the Classy Little Podcast, joined us on the call just to hang out, and we're giving a huge shout-out to her not only for her work on the Where in the World is the Lisp game, but also for her new show: The Story Behind, which will be debuting later this month. She has begun to assemble the prize pack for the WITWITL game, and you're easily going to get nearly $75 in prizes. If you haven't started yet, you've got a few weeks of clues left to submit to get in on this prize pack. Start playing NOW!! 

The biggest movie news of the week has to be the release of the final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer, and what a trailer this was! It has the same gritty feel of the first two trailers, calming fears that the production woes on this film may not prove detrimental to its overall quality after all. This episode is jam-packed with podcast-y goodness!

We are over halfway through the month of October now, and the Epic Film Guys horror challenge continues! Many have crossed the finish line past ten films and are trying to complete the 31-day version of the challenge, basically a movie a day for the month. Wow! Thank you so much to everyone who is taking part in the challenge. Keep in mind, this episode lands on October 20th, so even if you start the day this drops, you can watch a film a day and still destroy the challenge! Check your progress over at http://www.epicfilmguys.com/horrorchallenge2016. We'll also be playing some Fanviews clips this week with your progress! Remember, if you want to call in your picks instead, we'll air them on the show! Or, if you just have something else to get off your chest, dial us up at 607.444.1473.

Finally this week, Patrick Sherwood has made another Hobster shirt, further fueling the out-of-control ego of the drunken bum. Will he finally take it too far? Justin talks about his trip back home (including a brief stop in to see Epic Film Guy Nick) and the Halloween horror marathon in 35mm in Syracuse, and Nick will talk a little bit about what he's been up to as well. Thank you so much for listening- we'll see you at the movies!!

While on a recent trip to Buffalo, I stumbled across a beer that will only serve to further fuel the out-of-control ego of the Hobster. Can it possibly be contained? On this week's episode, we are reviewing FOUR huge trailers in Epic Previews in the back half of the show, most of which dropped at NYCC this past weekend. We're taking a look at the Keanu Reeves action sequel John Wick Chapter 2, the final installment of the Resident Evil franchise starring Milla Jovovich, the indie thriller I am Not a Serial Killer starring Christopher Lloyd, and Justin has some choice words for the first teaser for Saban's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Also this week, we're playing your Fanviews voicemails, including answering a challenge that was thrown down at Epic Film Guy Nick for some disagreement about the quality of Star Trek over on twitter. Will he accept Jason's (of Pat & Jason Binge Movies) challenge to debate Star Trek, or is he just not looking to go where so many have gone before?

We'll also be checking in on the horror challenge this week, talking about the films that you're watching. We've even got a Fanviews call-in for one check-in, and if you'd like to check-in your own films, please call the hotline at 607.444.1473 and drop us a line. The Where in the World is the Lisp game is also officially half over, but you can still enter to win the prize pack being offered by Emily- every correct answer is another entry in the contest! Thank you for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

It's the first week of October, so we're rolling out ALL of the horror stops for this week's show! We're premiering a segment for this month where we'll recap what we've watched for the Epic Film Guys #HorrorChallenge and we'll shout-out everyone that has kept us up on their progress. For the sake of my sanity, please respond with your picks to the daily tweets going out every afternoon or to specific posts on the facebook page... it's too difficult to chase down everyone's picks!

This week, Epic Previews returns again to talk two trailers... the first we'll review is the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Dead Men Tell no Tales. Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, and Orlando Bloom all return and are joined by Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar. The second trailer is for a film directed by and starring Denzel Washington in an adaptation of August Wilson's Fences. He will be joined by Viola Davis, and both of them reprise roles they won Tony awards for back in 2010.

Finally this week, with a title like "Hobster Halloween," we know he's bound to show up, and a superfan of the podcast is now sporting his very own Hobster swag. Will his ego start to get out of control? Stay tuned to find out!

On this Cinema Beat Minisode, Justin reviews Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, from director Tim Burton, which stars Asa Butterfield, Samuel L Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Allison Janney, Eva Green and Terence Stamp. This review is SPOILER-FREE!

He then joins Nick to offer a thorough review of the re-imagined Magnificent Seven film from Antoine Fuqua, starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Haley Bennett, and Peter Sarsgaard. We do very briefly discuss spoilers near the end of the review, but it is prefaced by a spoiler warning.

Our apologies again for continued audio issues, we are working on them and will have them resolved as quickly as we can. Thanks so much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Happy International Podcast Day! Tomorrow (09/30) is a day to celebrate podcasts and podcasting, so to celebrate this week we'll be shouting out to some of our favorite shows, as well as talking about your favorite moments/episodes of the podcast & playing your fanviews clips of the same. As we do each and every week, we have to thank you very much for listening and supporting us in as many ways as you do.

Speaking of podcasting, however, we say goodbye to a podcast that has been infinitely influential to ours- the Classy Little Podcast has officially said goodbye. To thank them and remember them, especially Emily for how much her influence helped to shape the Epic Film Guys podcast, I've put together a little tribute to their show.

Last week on the show we mentioned that we were recording a day early so Justin could attend a book signing by his favorite scream queen of all time, Jamie Lee Curtis! Well, the pictures have already popped up on social media, but he's got quite the story to tell about meeting this iconic actress! 

We're also setting the stage everyone, so GET READY for the Epic Film Guys Horror Challenge!! Justin will, as last year, be watching 31 movies for the 31 days of October, but we're not asking our fans to go that far. Instead we're just asking you to watch ten. Pick five films you've never seen before, and another five that are your favorites, and watch them throughout the month of October. We'll keep a dedicated page on the website for the horror challenge at http://www.epicfilmguys.com/horrorchallenge2016 and track everyone's progress. Let us know what you're watching on social media or by calling Fanviews at 607.444.1473 and letting us know, and you'll get a shout-out on the show!

Last but not least, this week we're looking at two trailers in Epic Previews- first up, the trailer for the sci-fi thriller Passengers starring Chris Pratt & Jennifer Lawrence, and then Nick almost goes into a rant over the teaser for Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johannson. Thank you so much everyone for listening- we'll see you at the movies!!

Episode 064 - Tap that Pumpkin!

00:0000:00
Justin returns and reminds our listeners that, as penance for my consumption of a single can of Bud Light, I'll be forced to drink an entire six pack of pumpkin beer during next month's horror challenge, and I couldn't be more horrified. We recorded a day early this week as Justin took a trip to New Jersey to meet his favorite scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis! By the end of the first segment, we welcome a familiar face officially into our Epic Film Guys family as Justin prepares to launch the B-Sides minisodes, starting with Critters, which is coming very soon.

I decided to give everyone another week to play the "Where in the World is the Lisp" game- send your answers to this week's clue to us either by DM on twitter, by email, or by message on facebook. There are prizes at stake, so don't give away the answers- play to win! For the next seven weeks we'll be posting a new clip, and we want to thank Emily from the Classy Little Podcast for coming up with this amazing idea.

The show ends this week with three trailer reviews in Epic Previews, one of which has Nick ranting yet again about gratuitous 3D. We'll take a look at trailers for Underworld: Blood Wars, Live by Night from Ben Affleck, and the new Amy Adams film, Nocturnal Animals. Thanks so much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Justin is camped out near a local Mac-Donald's waiting for some free double cheese this week, so tonight I am joined by good friend and brother to the show, Paul from the Countdown Movie and TV reviews, who has graciously agreed to step in as co-host for tonight's podcast. 

This week's show is all about four wonderful action comedies from an era when Mel Gibson was a #1 commodity in Hollywood and Joe Pesci hadn't retired- we're talking about all things Lethal Weapon! We'll talk about our favorite moments from the four films and talk ever-so-briefly about the coming TV series, which is as good an excuse as any for another edition of Nick's Rants.

I want to thank Paul for stepping up and filling in for Justin while he takes a week off from the show; initially he was going to guest on the show with both of us, but after Justin decided to take a short break Paul was more than willing to fill in. I am eager to hear from Justin next week as we prepare to launch the Epic Film Guys B-Sides, a minisode series wherein Justin and a random co-host will look at glorious B-movies of all kinds with a review and retrospective.

Thanks so much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Though we had recorded a segment some weeks back with Kevin of Picture Lock and Dan of Netflix n Swill, we actually decided to kick the "end of summer movie season" can down the road until the end of August to give ourselves a chance to round out a lackluster summer for film and hopefully see something else that might register on our list. I think the results speak for themselves, and while August was able to give us a slight improvement, the summer definitely goes to the indies and the horror flicks. Blockbusters across the board were disappointing save for Civil War, and even highly-anticipated flicks like Suicide Squad were failures in one or more respect.

This week we'll be reviewing our biggest hits of the summer and our biggest disappointments, as well as taking your calls in Fanviews for your thoughts on the summer movie season. We'll also revisit Dan and Kevin's commentary from the Suicide Squad episode on the end of summer and hear what they thought.

All that, and a quick shot of Epic Previews this week as we skew more toward the awards season! We'll be checking out trailers for American Honey, Certain Women, and Manchester By the Sea, all of which are primed to rack up some wins this awards season. We'll also take a look at the trailer for Men of Courage: USS Indianapolis starring Nicolas Cage. I'll also be discussing my appearance on the InSession film podcast this past weekend where we discussed our most-anticipated movies of the fall and had an engaging discussion about the best-ever year for film (in our opinion). I'll share what my selection was, and you can weigh in on the topic as well either on Fanviews or on social media!

We'll also be talking about some upcoming changes with the show's format, things that myself and Justin are extremely excited about. October is just around the corner and we'll talk briefly about some things coming down the road, from the horror challenge to our next crossover with The Countdown: Movie and TV reviews. We'll see you at the movies!

Our Cinema Beat segment returns and will be a more recurring feature, as we start moving all of our future reviews to their own Minisodes. This week, we're reviewing the film Blood Father starring Mel Gibson, and we'll discuss whether this is a return to form for Gibson, or if he just doesn't have it anymore. Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

A pall of sadness has settled over the Epic Film Guys podcast, as today on recording day (08/29) we learned of the passing of comedic legend Gene Wilder, star of such classic films as The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, among others. Tonight we'll talk about our five favorite Gene Wilder films, and we're also going to be including your thoughts on the late actor in our Fanviews segment.

Also this week, something you probably never thought you'd hear from the Epic Film Guys... praise for something Marvel did! We'll check out the hilarious video from the Civil War Blu-Ray that features Thor wishing he was included on the action in Captain America: Civil War, but instead has moved into an apartment in Australia. The short was directed by Taika Waititi, the director of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, and someone whose praises have already been sung over on our brother podcast, The Countdown Movie and TV reviews. 

We had a lot more content recorded for this week, but due to some circumstances we'll discuss next week and my need for sleep, I decided to cut our discussion of Ben Affleck's Deathstroke reveal and the casting of Zendaya in Spider-Man: Homecoming and leave them for next week's show or possibly a mid-week mini-sode. In the meantime, please enjoy the episode, and we'll see you at the movies!

Another week, and another unscripted episode! With little to talk about headed into this week's episode, a very exhausted Nick and Justin jump in for yet another off-the-cuff episode of the Epic Film Guys podcast, where nothing is prepared ahead of time. How we manage to get from start to finish in this one is even stranger than a few weeks ago, but somehow we get there! 

A couple days after recording, the Cinema Beat returns this week, and Justin is joined by regular contributor and friend of the show Bryan Loy to review a film opening in theaters this week, Don't Breathe! The guys had a chance to check out an advanced screening, and even if the summer's blockbusters have been more than lackluster, the horror films continue to impress two hardcore horrow fans, so you won't wanna miss this spoiler-free review.

We'll also take a fond look back at two films celebrating their 30th anniversaries this week, as Justin discusses Night of the Creeps, and both of the guys discuss their love for the incredible classic Rob Reiner film, Stand By Me. Our Dose of Dangerfield also returns this week with more stand-up from the comedy legend, and tons of other fun surprises you'll have to wait and hear for yourself. Stick around for the bloopers to see just how hard it was to get this week's show off the ground!

We begin this week's episode with some brief thoughts on the film Pete's Dragon and Justin recounts his trip to meet one of the greatest horror icons of all time, Mr. Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund! This week will also have a little bit of an unscripted flavor to it as I fly sans-outline, but after the jam-packed Suicide Squad episode last week, it was good to jump off the page again and just have a nice conversation.

We do, however, jump into a war-themed segment of Epic Previews this week as we dissect trailers for Star Wars: Rogue One, Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, and Dunkirk. We're also playing your voice clips once again in our Fanviews segment- if you want to leave a message for the Epic Film Guys, please call the hotline at 607.444.1473! Anything goes!

To close out this week's show, we give a short review of the brand-new raunchy R-rated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, and some internet issues will see the arrival of a fan favorite during the silence. Thanks very much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Following off the heels of our completely unscripted episode, this week we've got a LOT of content to cover... so much that, for the first time ever, we welcome two different guests at the same time! The first you remember from our Deadpool episode, he has a YouTube channel called "Dan Sucks at Video Games" and we're thrilled to have him back- Mr. Dan Brenic is here! Dan will also be starting his own podcast soon with another of our sponsors, Caleb, called the Netflix n' Swill Podcast. Follow them on twitter @NetflixNSwill and find them on facebook. We're also happy to welcome a long-time friend of the show, Kevin Sampson from Picture Lock! Justin was on Picture Lock some months back and did a review of The Neon Demon for Picture Lock Radio. 

This week, the big subject on everyone's mind is Suicide Squad! Yet another DCEU film has opened to a negative critical reception and a mixed fan reaction, and it has led to such things as attempted boycotting of Rotten Tomatoes and Warner Brothers, and Jared Leto has said there is enough Joker footage cut from Suicide Squad to make an entire Joker movie! We also know this isn't the film that theater owners and some fans had the chance to see back in May, which has led to a great deal of discussion about an "ultimate edition" of Suicide Squad as well, given the reaction to the BvS UE when it came out last month.

We're diving in and discussing everything this week- a full review of the film, a full discussion of the rumored "film that was," and talking about the future of the DCEU. No matter the reactions of some fans to the critics, it stands to reason that DC and WB cannot keep making films that are critically reviled and expect to stay financially viable, especially in light of the success (critically and commercially) of the Marvel cinematic universe. We'll also be delving into another round of Fanviews as our fans have voiced their opinions about Suicide Squad as well- and a ton of other fun surprises! Thanks very much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!


Nick's Full Suicide Squad Review:

"All that chit-chat's gonna getcha hurt!" This is one of only a few scenes in David Ayer's Suicide Squad to feature the Joker, a character lost in a film whose ineptitude is mind-numbing. Coming off the critical drubbing that Batman v Superman received earlier this year, Warner Brothers went into panic mode, ordering a number of extensive reshoots to Ayer's Suicide Squad meant to brighten the film amid complaints that BvS was "too dark." Now that Suicide Squad itself has received a critical thrashing, one can't help but wonder if the artists behind BvS and SS are taking the brunt of the blame for meddling by nervous WB executives who are eager to catch up to Marvel in terms of quality, and more important, box office grosses. But I digress.

Suicide Squad is a disaster. It is DC's piss-poor attempt at doing the Marvel formula worse than Marvel could ever have tried. It attempts to force humor into dark subject matter, from dropping pop-y hits and classic songs throughout the first 1/3 of the film to try to lighten the mood as well as dropping Zombieland-esque text promts on-screen as a way of developing characters instead of letting the film do that for them. It opens as Amanda Waller (Viola Davis, a shining beacon as always) meets a government stooge at dinner and attempts to pitch her idea for "Task Force X," something she apparently tried to do prior to the death of Superman (in BvS), but now feels that it is more important than ever. This sequence is saddled with excruciatingly long flashbacks in which we get backstories for several major characters, including Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), and an actually-palatable Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. 

The cast in this film is fantastic, and that cannot be emphasized enough. These actors all showed up and acted their butts off- with a scant few exceptions- and it feels as though the production, or the studio, or something else failed them. Ayer's attention to character detail is as clear as day here. Everyone is fantastically cast, but the notable standouts in the cast are Viola Davis, who is amazing as the manipulative Waller, and Will Smith as Deadshot, who actually dials in a great performance as the man who never misses. Most reviews have lavished attention on Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, and she is set up to steal every scene she's in- most of which she does, to great effect- but her accent is uneven throughout the film and it is distracting (likely a result of coming back for reshoots, as it is only in some scenes). Joel Kinnaman is also a standout as Flag, and while the visualization of Enchantress was wonderful, Cara Delevingne really didn't have much to work with here. The film absolutely wastes a brilliant Jay Hernandez as Diablo, never really getting into the depths of this incredibly complex character. It similarly wastes the talents of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje by burying him under heavy makeup and having him say a gravelly quip now and again. 

Jared Leto's Joker does NOT belong in this film. While this may earn some scorn, whatever role he was supposed to fulfill in this story was completely absent. Half of the time he showed up was in flashbacks for Harley Quinn's origin story, and the rest of the time it was some contrived mission to try to rescue Harley. Given the rumors that much of his screentime was cut in the final film, it is impossible to ignore them- he had a much bigger role and was to have a significant side plot running simultaneously with the A-plot, but most of this was eradicated, and half of the time it isn't even apparent he's in the movie at all until he returns. What is left is merely a distraction from the main plot of the film and not necessary, and in fact hogs several of the precious 123 minutes this story needed to develop itself. He'd have been better left on the cutting room floor altogether, rather than give us an interesting but ultimately fruitless taste of the iconic villain.

The film eventually limps its way into something of a plot, as the titular squad are assembled to fight down a massive threat. The second half of the film works better than the first half, since it actually develops some relationships between these villains, all of whom are constantly looking out for themselves (which was excellently done). The villain is a sack of wet dishrags and about as interesting- it is reminiscent of those in the MCU such as the vapid waste of space Christopher Eccleston played in Thor the Dark World. Absolutely no time is spent developing the character, showing that they are even remotely a threat, as even with fantastical powers the villain does mostly nothing with them and then flat-out ignores these powers during the final showdown because they're fighting against the main characters in the film. 

Even with a great cast, with a great director in Ayer and a great visual feel from he and cinematographer Roman Vasyanov, the film simply falls in on itself. It forces needless backstory down the audience's throat in place of actual development for its characters so they are merely a list of criminal misdeeds rather than living, breathing characters in the DCEU. The film should have started with the Squad assembled and going on the mission, and then- as their relationships with one another and with Waller grew- explored the reason they ended up on the Squad in the first place, and how Waller manipulated them to that end. With a film THIS character-heavy, development of those characters and their relationships is even more important than a normal film. One can only hope that WB gives Ayer a chance to go back into the editing room with John Gilroy and turn out something that is even remotely acceptable, because this absolutely is not it. Four out of ten stars.

Unscripted and uncensored is the name of the game this week at the Epic Film Guys podcast! We head into this week's episode without any plans ahead of next week's colossal end-of-summer-movie-season episode with Dan Brenic & Kevin Sampson. So, instead, you'll get a little something different than you normally get from us; we're not droning on and on about this movie or that, but we're just having a fun movie conversation and a few beers like we did back in the day. 

Through the episode, we do touch on a few poignant items, from anniversaries for Howard the Duck and Friday the 13th Part VI, and Justin gives his thoughts on the latest entry in the Bourne franchise, Jason Bourne. We also talk about our anticipation for Suicide Squad next week and some of our hopes for the film. We're also going to be attending a special event this Sunday, 08/07 at the Cinemark theater in Moosic, as the Epic Film Guys will see their favorite movie of all time on the big screen together- Batman '89. How will we contain ourselves when Eckhart arrives on-screen?

Also this week, the Fanview segment returns with two fan voicemails that have us scratching our heads. The Dose of Dangerfield is back as well!

This week, we're actually tossing movies out the window for a change as we welcome regular contributor and friend of the show, Bryan Loy, and the three of us dig into the new Netflix 80s horror thriller, Stranger Things! We've got a full review of all eight episodes of the series and we want to invite you to join us for this fantastic new show. The review is quite spoiler-filled, so if you're looking to avoid it until you finish the series yourself (which you MUST do!), then the segment runs from 15:20 to 55:00.

This week we've also got four trailers coming your way as part of Epic Previews. San Diego Comic Con was this past week, and instead of waiting for things to leak, the studios are out ahead of the game and have released the Comic Con trailers online to coincide with the event. Thus, we're going to be talking Justice League, Wonder Woman, the new trailer for Doctor Strange, and wrapping things up with the colossal Kong: Skull Island. We'll also be touching on the rest of the news from the week, including the casting of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel

Another thing we want to announce is that we're bringing back last week's fan reviews segment because it was so popular, and it will return every week that we get clips as a regular segment we're calling FanViews! Every week, you can shoot us a quick 60-90 second review of whatever film we're reviewing for that week (or whatever you want!) and we'll include your thoughts as part of the segment. We want to thank everyone who responded positively to this segment and encourage anyone out there listening to take part in the future. Meanwhile, after weeks of harassment about the now-infamous "sausage" clip, the weekly Charles Bronson has been shelved. I'd tell you by what, but if I told you then you'd probably get no respect, no respect at all! Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Winona Ryder as Joyce

Podcasting... the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Epic Film Guys podcast. Her ongoing mission: To explore strange new films... to seek out new listeners and new, exciting content... to boldly go where no podcast has gone before! This week we're talking all things Star Trek with our full review of Star Trek: Beyond, the third film in the reboot trilogy started back in 2009 with JJ Abrams' Star Trek. Abrams, of course, departed the Trek franchise for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 3-6) has stepped in to take the reins. 

We joined our brother podcast out of Perth, Australia for a spoiler-free review and discussion of the film this past weekend- check out that episode here. This minisode will go a bit further in depth than we did on the Countdown and we've got our full, spoiler-filled review of Star Trek: Beyond for your ears. Our normal episode will still land tomorrow morning (07/28/16), featuring a full review of the new Netflix series Stranger Things with Bryan Loy, and a breakdown of San Diego Comic-Con's flood of news and trailers in Epic Previews. Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Nick's Full Star Trek: Beyond Review:

Star Trek: Beyond is the third film in the reboot series that began in 2009 with JJ Abrams reboot/sequel, which used an incredibly clever script to both adhere to and separate itself from the established Star Trek canon, which now spans some fifty years and another new series headed to television next year. It was a stellar film, and its sequel, Star Trek into Darkness, was even better- it flipped the script for Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan on its head, further showing how the changes to the continuity in 2009 will lead to radically different futures for the original Trek crew. It looked at the danger of a militarized Starfleet searching for war among the stars and offers a scathing criticism of the pre-emptive war mindset of the modern-day military-industrial complex. 

Enter Justin Lin, of Fast & Furious 3-6 fame, to step in for the departing Abrams (who, of course, went on to Star Wars Episode VII). Three years into its five-year mission, the Enterprise stops at the Yorktown Federation outpost to take supplies. We catch up with the crew, from Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura, Chekov, Scotty, and Sulu; seems that Kirk is feeling as though the vastness of space is consuming him. Bones is as sarcastic and quippy as ever (Karl Urban remains the greatest casting choice in a stellar cast). Spock and Uhura are on the outs, while Chekov (the tragically late Anton Yelchin) is now taking a page from Kirk's womanizing book. Scotty is eccentric as ever, and Sulu is gay, but the film pays zero attention to this factoid- despite its condemnation by, of all people, George Takei (the original Sulu, who came out several years ago). Yet, it feels no more out of place than anything else in this film- after all, what is Star Trek if not a totally-inclusive, non-judgmental society? Now more than ever, we find this ideal incredibly present in all of our minds.

The Enterprise heads through a nebula at the behest of Kalara, who claims her ship has crashed on a planet on the other side. On passing through they are instead attacked by a swarm of small ships that make quick work of the Enterprise, because firing a photon torpedo into the swarm and shooting it to cause a big explosion or even ejecting the warp core like they did in the first friggin' moving and making that explode would be far too complicated and would work against the requirements of the plot. The crew winds up on the planet, split off into several groups, which works extremely well for the most part- Kirk and Chekov have a wonderful chemistry, but the pairing of Spock and Bones is simply brilliant every time the pair arrives on-screen. 

Scotty, meanwhile, is paired with a mysterious character named Jaylah, who reveals that she too was marooned on the planet by Krall's forces some time ago, and she enlists Scotty's help to fix an old Federation ship that also crashed on the planet. We get some mysterious nuggets of dialogue that allude to a deeper backstory to her character, but the film never bothers to develop her into anything beyond a cool-looking badass who can definitely hold her own in a fight. Who is she? Who cares, that's who. She actually get a hefty chunk of screentime as well, so much so that she fights against "Manas"- Krall's right hand and the person who killed her parents, apparently- and the fight drags on and on and on. These characters aren't even remotely developed, so every moment they're on screen they make for silly, pointless moments that distract the audience from the fact that the Enterprise crew- the characters we actually care about- are in danger.

The film is the most "Star Trek" of the three films in the reboot series, and as an avid fan of TNG and DS9 it was great to see the film return to that feeling, and it should be enough to warm the heart of any Trek fan. That said, this film did its best to emulate the bad things about the worst of Trek- the worst of the original films, for example- and ends up a deflated flapping mess by the end. The Enterprise crew escapes the planet by "jump starting" a starship how? A car works by jump-starting because the wheels are contacting the ground, providing energy to the vehicle as they turn, which allows the engine to turn over and sustain itself. So how precisely does this work when a starship falls off a cliff?! 

Then, the film culminates in a Deus Ex Machina set to the tune of the Beastie Boys, wherein a plot contrivance that makes absolutely no sense pops up and completely eliminates the swarm of ships in an instant, even though the plot never makes the logical connection to this outcome even when it is setting it up. Meantime, an 11th hour reveal that Krall is actually a former Starfleet captain who was once a soldier but is unable to stop living in the past has turned him into a monster, in one of the most hideously mismanaged and mangled attempts at giving the film some thematic heft before it ends. The theme wants to be about the role of the soldier in peacetime. It could have done more vis-a-vis the idea of PTSD and helping to transition soldiers into peacetime, and doubled down on the idea of peace versus perpetual war. Much more needs to be done to help soldiers with their demons from the horrors of war, to cope with their PTSD, and to help them lead normal lives. Yet this theme is tacked-on literally at the film's climax to try to stick some empathy onto the main villain who has, to this point, been a one-note "Starfleet bad" bad guy whose motivations were completely unknown to anyone. 

The film does enough right by the cast of the reboot trilogy, even if it is a touch predictable (like Kirk and Spock are ever going to walk away from the Enterprise), that it still resonates, at least at times. It closes on a touching moment that will definitely tug the heart strings of any Star Trek fan, but it is too packed with ham and cheese to be the thoroughly engaging film that its predecessors were. 5/10.

This week, we're far less concerned with structure and more concerned with having a great time! We'll open the show talking about our weekends, and Justin recounts his trip to Washington D.C. to meet horror legend John Carpenter. We also pay homage to James Cameron's Aliens, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary on the recording date, and to The Dark Knight, which celebrated its 8th. Some friends of the show return, and we feature a brand-new segment this week, as I edit your mini-reviews of Paul Feig's Ghostbusters.

On the heels of our commentary of the original Ghostbusters last week, this week we're diving headlong into a full review of the 2016 reboot, directed by Paul Feig and starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. However, we won't be doing it alone! This week we are joined by Emmy-winning film critic Jackson Murphy of Lights-Camera-Jackson! We are proud to be participating in the LCJ POD-A-THON, in which Jackson is appearing on numerous shows over a five-day period to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Before he signs off, we'll talk to him about the summer movie season thusfar and ask what he's looking forward to for the rest of 2016. Catch Jackson's full review of Ghostbusters on his website: http://lights-camera-jackson.com/ghostbusters-pg-13.php. Once Jackson signs off, we launch into a more in-depth review and discussion of the new Ghostbusters film, as I read from my written review while Justin chimes in to agree or disagree. 

Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

The phone-in topic Today: "Ghosts and Ghostbusting." The controversy builds, more sightings are reported, some maintain that these professional paranormal eliminators in New York are the cause of it all.

That's right film fans... as promised some time back, it's time for another audio commentary, and this week- on the release day of the reboot, no less- we're doing a full-length commentary of Ivan Reitman's immortal classic, 1984's Ghostbusters! Of course starring Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts, and William Atherton, this film is a classic in absolutely every sense of the word, with unforgettable performances and a movie that is quoteable from beginning to end. It sits high atop the list of films that I have seen hundreds of times, and could watch a hundred more and never get tired of it. It is so layered with amazing comedy that it still causes movie-goers to laugh uncontrollably some thirty plus years later.

If you're trying to listen to our commentary along with the film, the audio track is synchronized with the very start of the film, so just start them both at the same time! 

Some facts about Ghostbusters:

~AFI's 100 Years, 100 Laughs list... #28
~IGN's Greatest Comedy Ever in 2005.
~Funniest Movie of the past 25 Years by Entertainment Weekly in 2006.
~Total Film's readers voted the film the 44th greatest comedy of all time in 2000.
~The film was also selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2015. 

~Ackroyd & Ramis originally wrote roles for John Belushi (Venkman) and John Candy (Louis Tully). John Candy did not commit to the project, which led to Rick Moranis being cast, and after Belushi died, Bill Murray came on board.

~John Candy's original concept for Louis Tully was that the character should be German, and own two dogs. These concepts were rejected, leading to Candy's rejection of the part.

~Eddie Murphy was the actor originally considered for the part of Winston.

~Slavitza Jovan played Gozer, but she did not voice her- the voice was done by Paddi Edwards.

~Slimer was intended to be a tribute to John Belushi, specifically his character Bluto from Animal House. 

~Gozer was originally to have been Ivo Shandor, a slender man in a business suit, played by Paul Reubens. This was the form taken by Ivo Shandor in the video game that came out in 2009, wherein Shandor was revealed to have been the architect of the slime tunnels used in Ghostbusters II as well. 

~Pauline Kael said of the film, "Murray is the film's comic mechanism ... but nobody else has much in the way of material, and since there's almost no give-and-take among the three men, Murray's lines fall on dead air."

~Ivan Reitman provided the voice of Slimer, as well as the voice of Zuul when Dana is possessed by the evil spirit.

~Mr. Stay Puft's marshmallow was actually shaving cream!

~Last year, Ernie Hudson revealed that the character of Winston was originally in the script from the beginning as an Air Force demolitions expert, but the part was trimmed considerably in the script he was given the night before shooting started. He said, "I love the character and he’s got some great lines, but I felt the guy was just kind of there. I love the movie, I love the guys. I’m very thankful to Ivan for casting me. I’m very thankful that fans appreciate the Winston character. But it’s always been very frustrating—kind of a love/hate thing, I guess."

Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Come with me if you want to live. It seems only fitting that our first show of year two should mirror the first-ever show of the Epic Film Guys podcast, wherein I reviewed Terminator: Genisys. Tonight, myself and Justin step back in time and discuss what we so dearly love about the iconic Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which celebrated its 25th anniversary on July 3rd. This week, we'll be counting down our favorite five scenes from James Cameron's iconic action flick.

Regular contributor and friend of the show, Bryan Loy, makes a return appearance in this week's Cinema Beat segment as he and Justin take down The Legend of Tarzan, about which Justin makes a very bold statement. He also takes a few minutes and gives a glowing recommendation for The Shallows, which he also had a chance to check out this week.

With one year officially behind us, we're moving ahead and are happy to announce that the Epic Film Guys podcast has nothing but bigger and better things planned, and many of those plans are for current and future appearances. Our next highly-anticipated crossover with The Countdown Movie and TV reviews on their July 25th/26th show. Nick will also be appearing on a charity 24-hour livestream of Chrono Trigger by the Nickscast, a great show from three Canadian Nicks as they play through the classic SNES RPG for charity and attempt to get every single ending. 

Earlier this week I appeared on the New Trick Podcast, where host Steve attempted to take me to task over my numerous rants about Marvel's villains- and actually defends Independence Day: Resurgence! I'll be a guest (again) on an upcoming episode of World of Ro where I further discussed podcasting and my passion for films (among other things), and last but not least, several weeks back we announced that we'd received an award from Lisa of the Our Story Podcast, and I actually had the chance to sit down with her and talk about the origins of the Epic Film Guys podcast and broke down our process in terms of producing and creating the show. Look for all these (and more!) great appearances coming in the next couple months! Thanks so much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!!

In this special minisode, Nick and Justin take turns flogging away at Independence Day: Resurgence, a dismal disappointment of a film that not only fails to live up to the glory of its predecessor, but locks it deep inside a bunker somewhere and then blows the bunker up. We had a lot to say about this one, so we didn't want to try to squeeze it in with the massive fan celebration, still landing this Thursday! Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!

Justin begins this week by talking about a great opportunity he had this week to check out Nicholas Winding Refn's newest film, The Neon Demon, at the Washington D.c. premiere of the film. A big thanks and shout-out to our friend Kevin Sampson over at Picture Lock for this great opportunity! He will also briefly touch on Finding Dory as we look ahead to this weekend and Independence Day: Resurgence. We will also have a special moment today to remember Ron Lester, whose voice rings in the "What are you drinkin'?" segment each week, and Anton Yelchin, both of whom passed away this past week. 

After a few weeks of an absence of trailers, Epic Previews is BACK this week with four huge trailers! We've got the second trailer for the remake of Ben Hur, the Alexander Skarsgård & Michael Peña buddy cop action comedy War on Everyone, the feature trailer for Pete's Dragon (with our first actual look at the dragon!) and finally, we've got the trailer for the latest horror flick from Rob Zombie, 31

This week's episode lands on June 23rd, and we'll be recording Fan Celebration 2.0 TOMORROW, if you're reading this on release day! That means you've only got ONE MORE DAY to get us those questions ahead of the recording! Send us your questions, by any means possible- call/text the hotline at 607.444.1473, email us at epicfilmguysny@gmail.com, or find @EpicFilmGuys on twitter, instagram, and facebook. We want your questions! I've also got a couple surprises planned that should make for a wonderful show.

Tonight's podcast begins on something of a somber note, as we reflect on the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando only days ago. As we move into the show proper we ask that our audience reflect on this tragedy and to just let go of hate. There is so much hate, so much negativity in this world, and people are all too willing to arbitrarily take life over it. Enough is enough. I fear for the sanity of our collective species that any person can take or construct a weapon and murder a group of people simply because they're different. We don't want to politicize anything here and we're certainly not going to touch on guns, terrorists, or the sort. We just hope and pray that everyone can find some measure of peace and love and respect and stop this absolute senselessness. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family and friends of the Orlando tragedy.

With that said, we've certainly got a lot to cover in tonight's show... so much that we had to bring back special guest and friend of the show, Bryan Loy from Ten Bucks a Throw! Toward the top of the show, he and Justin will give a brief review of The Conjuring 2 in Justin's Cinema Beat, as they both had a chance to check out the horror sequel while I've yet to even see the first one. It also won the weekend box office with a $40 million haul domestically!

Tonight's main event, however, will feature this week's domestic box office runner-up, the video game-to-film adaptation Warcraft! The film crashed and burned domestically this weekend with a paltry $24 million on a sky-high $160 million budget. All is not lost for the Warcraft franchise, however, as the film has grossed nearly $300 million internationally, including a record-breaking $145 million and counting at the Chinese box office. Given this it has nearly doubled its budget already, so I expect a sequel announcement to come very soon. 

Also this week, we've got some updates on Fan Celebration 2.0, where we are now accepting film questions as well! Send us ALL of your questions, by any means possible- call/text the hotline at 607.444.1473, email us at epicfilmguysny@gmail.com, or find @EpicFilmGuys on twitter, instagram, and facebook. We need your submissions by June 24th in order to make the show! I've also got a couple surprises planned that should make for a wonderful show.
