Ep. 165: Beauty and the Beast (2017)
The original Beauty and the Beast is considered to be a classic not just in the realm of animation but films in general. It was met with widespread critical acclaim and was even the first animated film to garner a nomination for Best Picture. Jumping on the craze that Alice and Wonderland started in 2010 Disney decided to remake Beauty and the Beast in live action. The film debuted in March of 2017 to incredible commercial results finishing as the second highest grossing film of the year. On the contrary critic and audience reception seemed to be pretty mixed. What side of the coin do we fall on? That's what we're here to discuss
Ep. 164: The Sting
50 years ago, just 4 years after their last collaboration, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and director George Roy Hill collaborated once again on the 1973 smash hit The Sting. The crime caper won over critics, and audiences alike and even went on to win several Oscars including Best Picture. Still regarded as one of the best films of the 70s what is it about The Sting that won over so many and how does it hold up 50 years later? That's what we're here to discuss.
Ep. 163: Everything Everywhere All At Once
It's fitting that we decided to start a new tradition of reviewing the Best Picture winner just as we got maybe the craziest Bets Picture winner.............ever? Everything Everywhere All At Once blew both critics and audiences away with it's originality, themes, direction, and acting. It won h=just about every major Academy Award it was nominated for which is even more impressive considering it came out in March. That means it had to maintain momentum and stay in the conversation of Best Movies of the Year for 9 straight months. So what is it about this film that makes it so special? We find out!
Ep. 162: Top Gun: Maverick
Closing out Movie March this year we got the 2022 hit that captivated audiences and critics alike Top Gun: Maverick. Coming out a mere 36 years after the first film Top Gun: Maverick was a pleasant surprise to anyone who saw it. The film was a box office juggernaut, becoming the highest grossing film of Cruise's career, a critical darling, being one of the best reviewed films of the year, and even got a Best Picture Nomination. This is considered to be one of the best examples of a Legacy Sequel so what is it about this film that won over so many? That's what we're here to discuss.
Ep. 161: Blues Brothers 2000
The foundational idea of legacy sequels are all about coming back to a property and saying "yeah I still got it." Sometimes it works, other times it REALLY doesn't. Case in point today's movie Blues Brothers 2000. A desperate attempt by Dan Akyroyd and Jon Landis to recapture the magic of the first Blues Brothers 2000 fails to realize what made the first movie special. What exactly goes wrong? That's what we're here to discuss
Ep. 160: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Movie March continues on! Next up on the docket is a movie that is widely regarded as one of the biggest disappointments in cinematic history. Nearly 20 years after the last Indiana Jones adventure Steven Spielberg and company decided to bring the character back to the big screen for a whole new audience. Despite a strong box office and surprisingly decent critical reviews (seriously look it up it's kind of insane how high the RT score is given how people talk about this movie) many fans absolutely detest this film claiming it to be the worst film in the series. Do we disagree with that statement? No we do not, but is there anything redeemable about this movie? That's what we're here to discuss
Ep. 159: TRON: Legacy
Welcome to another installment of Movie March. We usually theme these around a franchise but since they're the big thing right now the theme of this year's March is Legacy Sequels. Basically movies that came out way way WAY later than it's predecessor. Sometimes they go great, sometimes they go not great, here we have a movie that kinda does a bit of both. TRON: Legacy came out in 2010 that's 28 years after the original Tron. The film had a lot of hype in the buildup to it's release but was met with a "meh" response from critics and a "eh" response at the Box Office. It's become a cult film since but why was this not a bigger upon release? That's what were here to discuss
Southland Tales COMMENTARY
You wanna see us experience confusion in real time? Well look no further than this commentary. This was the first time either of us had seen Southland Tales, and boy does it show. Come watch along with us as we try to figure out what the hell is going on
Ep. 158: Southland Tales
Southland Tales came out in 2006 and was the ambitious second outing of Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly. The film had an absolutely insane cast of actors and plot that many found too confusing to follows. Following a disastrous screening at the Cannes Film Festival it got a pretty significant overhaul for it's.........which was also disastrous. This often cited as one of the biggest cinematic misfires in recent history. So what about this movie goes so wrong, and what was Kelly TRYING to do? That's what we're here to figure out
Ep. 157: Our Top 20 Performances of 2022

At long last we're back to our regularly scheduled programming as we take a look at Boogie Nights which will be celebrating it's 25th Anniversary this year. This is the film that is credited for putting a lot of people on the map mainly it's director/writer Paul Thomas Anderson, and it's star Mark Wahlberg.

Ep. 143: Some Like It Hot
It's another Host's Choice episode and Chance decided to throw it WAY back with 1959's Some Like It Hot. Directed by the great Billy Wilder this film is regarded as not only one of the great comedies but one of the greatest films of all time. AFI ranked it at 22 on their Top 100 Movies and all the way at NUMBER 1 on their Top 100 Comedies. So wat about this film has stood to make generations laugh for over 60 years? That's what we're here to discuss.
Ep. 142: Heat
What do you associate with summer? Of course Al Pacino screaming at you to SIT DOWN! Heat is considered to be a quintessential film of the 1990's. Being the first film since The Godfather Part 2 to feature both Pacino alongside his contemporary Robert De Niro this crime epic mixes much more character development into what on paper is a simple cat and mouse game. So what makes this film such a cornerstone in the crime genre? We find out!
Ep. 141: First Blood
ACTION STAR SUMMER CONTINUES!!! After Schwarzenegger it's time to look at the other biggest action star of the 1980's Sylvester Stallone, and we are of course looking at the movie that put him on the action map First Blood!

Our discussion on Avatar: The Way of Water last week inspired the theme of this week's episode "Sequels That Came Out TOO Late" and that is the epitome of the term Independence Day: Resurgence. Rather than making a sequel to the mega hit blockbuster a few years after the original, Emmerich and Co. decided to wait and do one only AFTER they'd squandered all their good will in the public eye. Why is it something that was such a hit in 96 failed to click with a modern day audience? That's what we're here to find out. We talk the movie plus latest trailers like Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1, latest news like all the stuff coming out from Star Wars Celebration, and more right here on Notorious by Chance.
