Music gives a movie rhythm.  From the beats of a score to hum of the drum, music sets a movie in motion.

On this week’s show, we debate the greatest original title songs in film history. These were songs written specifically for their respective film, and sharing their name as well. What is the greatest title song? Ghostbusters, perhaps? How about Beauty and the Beast? Everyone loves Purple Rain. And never count out Against All Odds.

There are hundreds of movie title songs, but this week, we will put the set list to the test as we determine which one is the greatest in film history – THIS is the Original Title Song Movie Battle Royale!

Also on this week’s podcast: IMAX shows 3D the door, another button-pushing show is coming to HBO in Confederate, reviews of Ozark, Cut Shoot Kill and The Emoji Movie, and much more!

To pay respects to Mr. Romero, we will pay homage to the genre he created, the zombie film. Romero wasn’t the first director to take on the undead in this form, but he was the one who popularized it by setting his horde against the backdrop of societal and systemic issues plaguing us at that time. We discuss the evolution of the zombie craze, its oversaturation, and why it seems to have stuck along far longer than anyone expected.

Also on this week’s podcast: Doctor Who gets a gender swap, Aaron reviews The Big Sick, John takes a look at new releases Dunkirk, Valerian, and Girls Trip, Scott offers a new What’s This Movie and VOD release dates, and Stump the HO makes a triumphant return!

After our normal episode, stick around as we discuss our thoughts on the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere!

We are deep into the heart of the Summer movie season, and there is no better time than now to dive into those clichés that drive us all nuts.

When we discuss clichés on this episode, that’s both good and bad. Sometimes a cliché can be a positive – things we love and cause a visceral reaction of joy. Other times, well, they’re Batman and Robin. Take a listen to our favorites on both side of that fence, and let us know any we missed in the comments.

Also this week, we debate if R-rated comedies are dying, discuss some significant anniversaries, offer our takes on better endings for favorite television shows, and much more.

After our normal episode, enjoy our Spider-Man: Homecoming reactions and spoilercast, as we try to spin our web-heads around Marvel and Sony’s team-up on everyone’s favorite wall-crawler.

The Sabbatical follows James Pittman (James Whittingham), a professor who is forced to produce a photography book on his year off - publish or perish, as they say. With his wife (a charming Bernadette Mullen) busy working on a project of her own and his best friend submerged in family life, he makes fast friends with a carefree artist named Lucy (Laura Abramson). We follow James as he struggles to keep up with a much younger friend, and a mid-life crisis of sorts sets in.

The Sabbatical is a quirky character comedy that has a snarky, curmudgeon leading us through his crisis as he glides along with Lucy's free-spirit lifestyle. It’s a witty and charming ride as you grow to appreciate both characters as they learn a bit more about each other, and James about his own place in the world. 

Director Brian Stockton sat down with us to discuss his latest work, and and the unique take he and his fellow filmmakers took to bring The Sabbatical to life. We also discuss his journey in Hollywood, why a mid life crisis is the story he wanted to tell, touring his film in festivals, and much more. You can find more information at TheSabbaticalMovie.com

The Sabbatical is an engaging coming-of-age tale of a man well past his prime. Don't miss our exclusive interview with director, Brian Stockton.

The Sabbatical releases on VOD July 13, 2017. Find more info on the film at TheSabbaticalMovie.com

12 Feet Deep follows Bree and Jonna – sisters with a complicated past – as they meet up at a local indoor pool. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the cover is closed with the sisters inside, trapped until the pool opens again the following morning. Forced to contend with the elements, as well as a custodian with a grudge, the sisters fight together in order to survive a brutal night of possible tragedy.

As Bree and Jonna, Nora-Jane Noone and Alexandra Park carry the weight of this story while navigating a limited opportunity for any physicality in their performances. As the night grows seemingly exponentially longer for the pair, they each elaborate on their respective characterizations in subtly astute ways. A tiny inflection here, a nod to past indiscretions there, each of these descriptive choices combine to form a relationship the audience comes to believe in. After Clara (Diane Farr) enters the picture as a potential linchpin to the duo’s escape, Bree and Jonna finally begin to understand the fundamental strength lying within their relationship.

With 12 Feet Deep, co-writer and director, Matt Eskandari, sought to craft a film that takes a simplistic premise and explores the nuances of the human psyche as it faces certain death. The film is a taut thriller that benefits from both its skilled leads, as well as Matt’s rigid direction. For our interview, Matt discusses where the idea for the film emerged, casting the leads and Tobin Bell, as well as how he managed to create such an entertaining movie despite the obvious challenges of filming primarily in a covered pool.

12 Feet Deep is a harrowing tale from a director with a sharp eye for tension. Take a listen to our exclusive interview with director, Matt Eskandari.

12 Feet Deep is now available on VOD. Find out more at Facebook
