    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 15 - Congratulations England, Ya Just Ruined Buffalo Wings

    It's Phil's birthday and, as usual, there are no people he would rather spend it with than you.  The only problem is, some bloody restaurant chain has been screwing with Phil's favourite food.

    Classic Movie Moan

    Even though we are late to the party, 'Inside Out' has finally opened in the UK and we hope you will indulge Phil, Jamie and Matt while we finally talk about it in some detail (huge whopping Bing Bong shaped spoilers in this review - 6:03).

    After a unique journey of taking a peek at a really rubbish script and then being really impressed by the trailer, one final question remains - is 'Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation' any good?  Would you mind if Phil proper nerdgasms about it?  Didn't think you would (23:35).

    And we wrap with a rational discussion of 'Pixels' and try to explain how there was a genuinely great movie somewhere in this tonally inconsistent mess of a film (55:14).

    Marveling At The Future

    Join Phil, Spencer, and special guest Jen Mayhew as we discuss why 'Wolverine: The Last One (honestly)' has the potential to be the most interesting and emotionally affecting of all the X-Men movies as we say goodbye to Hugh Jackman in the role that defined him (1:07:55).

    Phil has had a few months to think about this and, despite what Latino Review is saying (Billy Zane as the Vulture?  Really?), he is 100% convinced that Mysterio will be the villain in 2017's 'Spider-man Rides Again'.  Let us tell you why (1:36:07).

    And Spencer opens up the debate to settle once and for all what we believe is a misunderstood notion - do Marvel's Cinematic Universe baddies suck? (1:44:44)

    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 14 - Baskin Robbins Knows Everything

    Join Phil, Jamie, Matt & Spencer for a fun and zippy ride through the aftermath of Comic-Con as we devote an entire show to everything currently happening within film's most un-killable genre.

    We begin with a review of Marvel's Ant-Man, whose only real connection to the MCU seems to be guessing how Ice Cream behemoth Baskin Robbins will play into future films (11:45).

    We then jump into the entirely predictable predicament we find ourselves in regarding the premature reaction to the pics from 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.  At this point, they're giving us literal translations of the crazy costumes.  So why is that not enough? (33:08)

    And since we can't shut up about this franchise, we tell you whether it's worth double dipping to pick up a copy of 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past: The Rogue Cut' (45:44).

    Next up is our thoughts on the trailer for 'Suicide Squad'; how huge it's going to be with the general public thanks to the presence of Harley Quinn, how bored Will Smith looks in it, why we can never learn to just give a new Joker a chance, and how Warner Bros. marketing strategy is completely destroyed thanks to the premature reveal of this footage (56:30).

    Then we finally talk about the latest footage for 'Batman V Superman: MEEEEEANWHILE BACK AT THE HALL OF JUSTICE'.  I can't guarantee we'll tell you anything you haven't already heard but you'll listen to us anyway right? (1:17:13)

    And finally, Jamie and Matt watch and join the conversation on 'The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?'.  Really, it's just an excuse for more Nick Cage impressions (1:32:30).

    And we do have time to poke fun at future President Donald Trump.  Enjoy!

    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 13 - That Scallywag Just Took Ma Pants

    Maybe Phil is setting himself up for a fall but EVERY moment, scene, line of dialogue, and actor is perfect in James Cameron's original tech-noir classic 'The Terminator'. So when someone comes along with the intention of replicating it and fails to cast the role of 'Hobo In Alley' correctly, you're damn right he's going to be pissed off.

    But that doesn't mean he hated 'Terminator: Genysis'. It's........complicated folks.

    Classic Movie Moan
    Phil, Jamie, Matt Thompson & Spencer Perry bring the epic saga to anticipating and dreading Terminator 5 to a close and have plenty to say about it; how they completely changed the appearance of the stargazing punks and thought we wouldn't notice, the fact that Skynet has now been reduced to an App, how Phil actually forgot the film has a helicopter chase, Arnold's missing ass crack. It's all here (7:49).

    Marveling At The Future
    After a few weeks away, Phil & Spencer just take the opportunity to catch up on all the comic book film and TV news which means the most to them. Which is code for "when is Daredevil Season 2 coming out?" Spencer also tells all about the first 8 minutes of 'Ant-Man'. Get some ice cream out of the fridge folks. This one will make you hungry (55:50).

    Cinematic Happy Comfort Food
    Phil goes solo this episode to gush about one of his personal favourites; 'Up In The Air' from 2009 (1:49:46).

    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 12 - Jurassic Waste

     

    Classic Movie Moan
    Phil, Jamie and Matt have quite a clash of opinions on the mega box office behemoth 'Jurassic World'.  One is utterly disappointed, one thinks it's ok, one is indifferent.  The only thing we can agree on is that Phil won't be getting a point for this round of the box office predictions game (5:10).

    'Terminator: JennYsissies' is soooooooo close folks.  One last chance for us to make some cheap Arnold parenting jokes before we see it. (32:13)

    On a more positive note, Matt has seen Pixar's latest 'Inside Out' and he's got good news for all of us (38:02).

    Memo To The Executives
    It's the second part of our look at how to turn 'Mass Effect' into a really good film.  Don't worry folks, we'll only take an hour of your time (45:33).

    Cinematic Happy Comfort Food
    It's finally Jamie's turn to pull a classic movie off the shelf and tell us why it's worth grabbing whenever you need that sweet spot filled.  So let us take you into the filth and decay of The Dark Ages as we explore the birth, life and death in one 140 minute flawed masterpiece of filmmaking; 'Excalibur' (1981) (1:45:50).

    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 11 - Luke Skywalker's Prostate Exam

    If Jamie has his way, that will be the next title announcement for Star Wars Anthology.  But then, Jamie is sick in the head.  Let's get to the show:

    Classic Movie Moan
    Phil and Jamie are re-united with TMT's box office correspondent Jen Mayhew to review Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland'.  Phil doesn't want to discuss it any more after this week.  It's too painful (6:50).

    On a higher note, Phil has finally seen 'The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?'.  More than that, Phil can confidently say the documentary makes you feel like you have seen the lost film itself.  Maybe we can do a Supermoan on it at some point (47:08).

    Memo To The Executives
    Phil and Matt Thompson, two of the most passionate fans you will ever meet of the video game series 'Mass Effect' (fighting words I know), band together to pitch to you how you could honest to God make it into, not only a terrific film series, but also a very progressive one in terms of its attitude to sex and sexism.  Heck, if we just end up with a good videogame movie, that will be progress (1:11:44).

    Cinematic Happy Comfort Food
    In tribute to the retirement of legendary make-up artist Rick Baker, Phil and Spencer Perry band together to discuss one of Spencer's favourite films - 'An American Werewolf In London' (2:08:23).
