#170 – How to Train Your Partner 22: Y’all Dragons Are Goin’ To College!!!

It used to be, back in the Long, Long ago, that sequels more often than not sucked. Batman Returns, Die Hard 2, Rambo III; these are all sequels that failed to live up to the greatness of the original. Granted, while there were some exceptions (Terminator 2, Superman II, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo), you would […]

#169 – Under the Skin

In today’s world of low attention spans and super fast editing, it’s refreshing when a film like Under the Skin hits theaters and completely ignores all modern movie conventions. If you’re going into this one thinking it’s just a Species rip-off, you couldn’t be more wrong. While it does share plot similarities, it couldn’t be […]

#168 – Apes on a Train

I’d never thought I’d say it, but who would have thought that a re-rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise would end up becoming one of the most interesting and entertaining series of films in recent memory? I can’t remember the last time I was so entertained by a truly gripping sci-fi film that posed legitimate […]

#167 – A Million Ways To Die In Pandora

I’ve always been one to say that kids films nowadays are soft. Back in the 1980s, movies targeted for children had grit, could legitimately disturb you, and could even appeal to older audiences. As time went on, and America became more PC, kids films started getting tamer and less scary. Disney’s Maleficent doesn’t exactly buck […]

#166 – Transformers: Age of Endurance

If you were worried that Transformers: Age of Extinction was going to be yet another Michael Bay extravaganza of chauvinism, needless explosions and racist stereotypes…well, your worries were well founded, because they’re all here. But, what may surprise you is the fact that a few of these things are actually scaled back this time around. […]

#165 – Let The Wookiee Win

One someone says, “Let the Wookiee Win”, you better take them for their word, otherwise you’re likely to end up with a missing arm, or in Harrison Ford’s case, a broken leg. While several media outlets are claiming this was merely an accident on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, we at Empire or […]

#164 – X-Men: Days of Future Past (aka…Just Go With It)

Plot holes. Convoluted story. Continuity issues. Gratuitous male nudity — wait, scratch that last one. I was talking about problems with X-Men: Days of Future Past, not shining moments. Ah, who am I kidding, we loved this freakin’ movie! I’m your host, David Snider, and joining me this week as we shout “Keep The Wheelchair […]

#163 – Under the Helmet: The Secret Life of a Power Ranger

The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Heroes of our youth, Kings of Angel Grove, and an icon of the 90s. Yes, the Power Rangers were truly gods among teens…but sadly, they were also tortured souls of the Hollywood machine. I’m your host, David Snider, and joining me this week to examine the Behind the Scenes drama […]

#162 – The One Who Stomps

Remakes are a tough business. Even when you do one well, people still bitch about the original being better or the remake obviously being a cash grab or the monster’s too fat or any number of stupid things. Thankfully, Gareth Edwards’ remake of Godzilla doesn’t fall into these categories. It’s a film that seems to […]

#161 – Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth

If you ever wondered what a Godzilla movie would be like if it were directed by Steven Spielberg, I can tell you this, Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth ain’t it, despite what the filmmakers would want you to believe. I’m your host, David Snider, and joining me for our ongoing Godzilla retrospective are […]
