What are the movies that made you love movies?

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're discussing what movies overwhelmingly sparked our love for film before the age of 18. These films primarily influenced our appreciation for film, meaning these are our personal bedrock for our fandom or even obsession. They could be classics or ones that resonated with us for any given reason. These are the movies that made us love movies

What is the most iconic episode of television?

Iconic is typically defined as widely recognized and well-established. Iconic episodes of television though are far and few between, because typically a series can only have one that would be called iconic, and how few episodes of any TV show are actually iconic? On this episode we discuss the very nature of reaching iconic status, as well as what episodes we would define as iconic. Sure, the usual suspects arrive in the form of Lost or Game of Thrones, but a few surprises await as well during an engaging discussion on a topic most of us know far more about than we realize.

Also on this episode: our news roundup including a Gundam Netflix adaptation, the closing of the Arclight Theater, and the Oscars giving essential worker waivers to their guests, spoiler-free review of Beast Beast, our weekly streaming recommendation, and much more.

Who is your favorite lone wolf assassin in film and why do we love these movies so much?

Lone wolf assassin movies a.k.a. movies where one person (man or woman) is either exacting revenge by slaughtering evil doers in fantastic ways, or just does it because they are damn good at it. John Wick is the most tossed about example but really think on this: for examples, the 80s had Commando, Chuck Norris’ An Eye for an Eye, the 70s had Death Wish, also films like The Bourne Identity, Kill Bill, Peppermint, The Punisher, Leon The Professional, Wanted, etc. It’s a genre that has been around for decades, yet seems to always disappear for a year or two until someone – most recently John Wick and Nobody – brings it storming back to popularity. So what is it about someone murdering scores of thugs all on their own that keeps audiences coming back to the fold over and over again?

Also on this episode: our news roundup including Death on the Nile is relocated to 2022 and Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard takes on Thundercats, spoiler-free reviews of Nobody and Invincible, our weekly streaming recommendation, and much more.

The South by Southwest Festival is one of the largest of its kind in the world. Every year, thousands of fans arrive in downtown Austin, TX to partake in a couple of weeks of great music, technology, and film. For this special episode of The Hollywood Outsider, we take you along for our annual deep dive into the heart of the film festival portion, and even further into the films themselves.

Over the course of several days, the 2021 SXSW Film Festival screened over numerous features, many from first-time filmmakers (consisting of World Premieres, North American Premieres, and US Premieres), shorts, virtual reality exhibits, title design, and other works. These films were selected from thousands of overall submissions, and – while we can’t see them all – we have a nice sample to share with you of what came out of this stellar lineup of independent films. Over 30 films are on our docket this year, and we review them all.

So sit back and relax. You’re about to experience South by Southwest from the comfort of your own home.

With Zack Snyder's Justice League released to the world, what do you think of his vision?

Determined to ensure Superman's ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne aligns forces with Diana Prince with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. In HBO Max's Zack Snyder's Justice League, Darkseid arrives, Steppenwolf has a whole new look, Cyborg and Flash both have an actual backstory, and we’ve got over 3 hours of new-to-us material.

This is not 2017’s JOSStice League, the infamously Frankenstein'd version of Justice League that director Joss Whedon put together. This is essentially a brand new film, as Zack Snyder had enough material already for two movies on hand. At 4 hours, 3 f-bombs, an R rating stuffed with blood and decapitated heads; we have arrived at a much different destination than we took several years ago. For this episode, we’re discussing one of the most talked about movies of the year: Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, and the return of Cyborg: The Age of Heroes has arrived!

#ForAutumn

  • Overall thoughts on Zack Snyder's Justice League and the changes in tone, plot, and character development

Great movie plots gone wrong: those films with such a fantastic concept flawed execution

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're talking about great movie plots that went wrong. These are ones we thought were great in concept, but the execution - whether it be in production or performances - made us a sad panda. We're looking at you,  Star Wars prequels, X-Men: The Last Stand,  and Lady in the Water to name a few. We discuss our favorite examples of a wasted opportunity, before debating several listener choices.

Also on this episode: spoiler-free reviews of Cherry, I Care A Lot, and The Vigil, and upcoming releases. And of course, we close out the episode with our weekly streaming recommendation - this week from VOD - before Troy Heinritz from The Blacklist Exposed joins us to discuss the recent rerelease of the Lord of the Rings trilogy in IMAX.

Where do you stand on "cancel culture" in entertainment? Is it holding celebrities accountable or are we too quick to jump?

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're talking about the daily news section called "cancel culture" and whether entertainment has a cancel culture or image problem. To define cancel culture, cancel culture (or call-out culture) is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles - either online on social media, in the real world, or both. Those who are subject to this ostracism are said to be "canceled." Cancel culture refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive. Cancel culture is generally discussed as being performed on social media in the form of group shaming. For those at the receiving end of cancel culture, the consequences can lead to loss of reputation and income that can be hard to recover from. Gina Carano, Joss Whedon, Armie Hammer, Kevin Spacey and many more are discussed as we debate whether or not Hollywood, in fact, has a cancel culture problem. 

Also on this episode: spoiler-free reviews of Silk Road, Tentacles, Judas and the Black Messiah, and To All the Boys: Always and Forever, and upcoming releases. Lastly, our "CANCEL IT!" segment has returned - fitting for this episode - where each host offers an old cliché in movies or TV that REALLY needs to be canceled (in a fun way).

What Defunct TV Shows Would You Like to See Make a Return as Movie Reboot?

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're talking about those older television shows that are completely off-air and that we believe deserve a movie reboot. We’ve all seen this done a bazillion times – Baywatch, Spencer Confidential, countless others – what is it about long dead TV shows that make feature films so appealing to reboot them?

Also on this episode: spoiler-free reviews of Clarice (series), Sator, and Greenland - including another giveaway! Lastly, our "What Would've Happened" segment, where one host posits the scenario of "What would've happened if John Doe never turned himself in?", and the other hosts offer their theory on what how that would have changed the course of the film.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're talking about our favorite Sundance 2021 films (including Land) and the process as a whole with a virtual festival. We talk about a handful of those films that sat most with us before we jump into our From the Outside In topic about re-watching movies.

Also on this episode: spoiler-free reviews of The Reckoning, The Little Things, and Land.

What is with Our Fascination with Serial Killers?

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're talking about our fascination with serial killers. True crime has exploded over the last few years between podcasts, Netflix series and documentaries, and films, but the societal obsession has always been there. What is it that makes us all so intrigued? Do we have a different response to fictional killers than we do to documentaries on real killers? 

Also on this episode: spoiler-free reviews of The Night and Supernova, and our new monthly segment: Classic Corner. This is where we discuss a movie that is 30+ years old and collectively determine if it still holds up and if it deserves the title of "classic". For this episode, our Classic Corner is on Midnight Run - the 1988 film starring Robert De Niro as he hunts down his biggest bounty score. All this and much more on this week's episode!

From the continued explosion of quality content on TV and streaming services (Mandalorian, Ozark, The Boys, Schitt's Creek), to the implosion of mediocrity scattered about, to an overload of film greatness (Tenet, Promising Young Woman, The Trial of the Chicago 7) both at home and in theaters (though this year home theaters became an absolute must-have) – THESE are the only podcast awards you need to listen to!

Cobra Kai is back at the dojo kicking off season 3 following the “karate riots” at the end of the last season. Immediately, we get to observe the effects of the fight on Sam, who is basically now mortal enemies with Tory, and is suffering from PTSD. Daniel and Johnny are also in emotional turmoil, as they struggle with guilt, anger, and accountability for the fight. Kreese rebuilds Cobra Kai in his own image, poisoning his students in the process. While Robby is running from law enforcement for the kick to Miguel, a horribly injured Miguel fights for his life in the ICU.
 
Consequences abound this season, Daniel makes a visit to his past via Okinawa, Johnny faces his own struggles with his son Robby and Miguel's injuries, and loyalties are tested throughout the season with both the younger and older characters of the show. This is our detailed and thorough examination of all the happenings of Netflix's Cobra Kai Season 3, good or bad.
