Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pixar, and - of course - a ton of Marvel has been unveiled for all the world to see, and we debate the biggest news that sprung from a weekend of Disney love.  

Also this episode, our spoiler-free review of Cobra Kai Season 5, and then it's time to discuss one of our favorite filmmakers and personalities: Kevin Smith.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we debate psychological horror vs gore, the art of the movie trailer, and then finish it off with our TV doctor Battle Royale!

First up, we debate which is scarier: psychological horror or gore? When you think of TV or movie scenes that terrify you, what stands out as the most horrifying? Is it a casual conversation by Hannibal to Clarice that raises the hair on the back of your neck, or is a flesh wound more jarring to you as an audience member? It’s a dissection of the mind and body this week.

Then we discuss the art of the movie trailer. All of us have preferences when it comes to movie trailers, but there’s no denying that when they are done right, they sell tickets and create the ultimate hype and intrigue. We discuss what makes them good, bad, and examples of our favorites.

Then we conclude as we are celebrate our fictional medical heroes by talking about our favorite TV doctors in one of our most beloved podcast segments: the Battle Royale. Joined by an actual physician, our guest Stan helps us break down which of our 8 finalists deserves to be crowned the greatest television doctor of all-time!

Was 1994 one of the greatest years in movies?

On this special episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we take a look back at the year 1994 in movies and TV. With special Breaking News segments, it’s a pretty crazy fun episode that looks at one of the greatest years in film history. Take a listen and let us know in the comments…is it THE greatest year?

Was 1994 the greatest year in movies?

Almost three decades ago, an absolutely hella fly year in entertainment took hold in 1994. Classics like The Lion King, The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump, Interview with the Vampire, True Lies, The Ref, Speed, and others hit theaters. Not to be outdone, Friends, Seinfeld, and ER took over our television sets. It was a prime time for entertainment.

Much has changed since then, but what is even more interesting is how much remains the same. For this special episode, we’re not only going to look back at the year in film and television – complete with Breaking News segments direct from the year itself – we are going to settle the longstanding debate on if 1994 truly IS the greatest year in movie history! With the magic of technology and time travel, we hope you enjoy yet another in our annual series of Hollywood Outsider Time Capsule podcasts.

Welcome back to 1994!

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, Variety released a study about the effect franchises have on streaming by studying the search history of users on Roku devices. This led us to ask the question about our preparation for watching a franchise whether to revisit them or to prepare for an upcoming new release.

Also on this episode, our review of Bodies Bodies Bodies. Aaron and Amanda dive into what could very well be a surprise hit for the end of the summer movie season.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, with NOPE hitting theaters, we wanted to discuss why Hollywood has this obsession with making aliens terrifying? What is the reasoning behind it?

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, with Thor: Love and Thunder blowing up theaters, we decided to take a look at movies or TV that changed their tone. For example, a show like The X-Files regularly altered its tone from comedy to sci-fi to horror with relative ease, while movies rebooted into completely new genres with films like 21 Jump Street and Baywatch. Changing the tone of a property is nothing new, but it does beg the question: is it worth the risk?

Also on this episode, our spoiler-free review of Thor: Love and Thunder, discuss the recent #GentleMinions experience, reflect on Summer Box Office, and much more.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, it is time to dive headfirst into the Upside Down to decipher everything we just witnessed in Stranger Things Season 4 Volumes 1 and 2. Did the kids have a sound plan, or did they wage into battle recklessly? Should they have waited another few days to call on Eleven? Hopper and Joyce are reunited, but what is the deal with this Russia storyline? Did Eddie buy them enough time? All of this and more as we dive into our favorite aspects of both volumes of Season 4 of Stranger Things.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we debate timeless movies, iconic TV episodes, and debate villain team-ups in a Battle Royale!

Our Movie Battle Royale takes on a new form as each host forms a Suicide Squad of their own, 4 villains teaming up to defeat Thanos. Which combination wins the battle?

Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park. These are some of the first films you think of when you debate movies that have stood up to the trials of time. On this segment, we are discussing timeless movies. Those films that still hold up decades later, against modern effects and scrutiny. These aren’t based on greatness or classic status, these are decided on by their ability to almost look and feel the same to you now as they did when you first saw them.

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 segment we discuss the very nature of reaching iconic status, as well as what we would define as iconic television episodes. 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.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, with the recent cancellation of over 40 shows, we are discussing the emotional impact of a series not given a proper ending. Is it even fair to expect studios to deliver an ending to a show no one is watching? Are we, as fans, too entitled when it comes to a canceled series? Also on this episode, we discuss the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial, a freakin' popcorn shortage, Neve Campbell's Scream 6 announcement, and Kyle Nolan from NoReruns.Net joins us to discuss the 2022 ATX Television Festival, which returned LIVE and in-person in Austin, Texas.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we decided to dive a little deeper into the history of movie and TV ratings. Where did they come from, who uses them in modern times, why do they use them? We especially take a look at if we should possibly reevaluate how reliable and seemingly flexibly inconsistent ratings tend to be. It's an in-depth and enlightening discussion on how society looks at movie and TV ratings.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we discuss every single aspect - spoilers and all - of the biggest movie of the year thus far, Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Following the events of the Disney+ series WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home where Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) cast a forbidden spell that opened the doorway to the multiverse, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness finds Strange protecting a young girl from unseen forces, including alternate versions of himself, whose threat to humanity is too great for the combined forces of Strange, Wong (Benedict Wong), and Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). WARNING: This is wholly a horror film, especially for the MCU. 

Marvel’s Multiverse opens up even further, and fan service takes a collect call direct from Kevin Feige’s and Marvel's seemingly infinite options of potential cameos.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we take a look at the world of movie and TV heroes. But instead of daring acts of valor, we discuss those heroes who truly aren't very heroic. We're not talking anti-heroes either. Maybe these alleged good guys didn't actually save anyone, or maybe they caused more damage than the villain, or maybe they were constantly bailed out by their friends at Hogwarts. Luke Skywalker, Frodo, Glenda the Good Witch, Rose, and the names keep coming. Whatever the case, we taking a sharp look at whether many of these protagonists deserve the title of "hero".

Also on this episode, we are discussing why we need so many thumbs for Netflix, how far deepfake technology has come, reviews of DUAL, All the Old Knives and Ambulance, and much more.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're taking a journey through the multiverse. Specifically, the concept of multiverses as a storytelling device. While many might think this starts and ends with Marvel's recent slate of films including Spider-Man: No Way Home, in fact, multiverses have been around for decades in various forms. As this backdrop of storytelling explodes in popularity, we take a look at it and discuss if it has a long-term future in modern filmmaking. 

Also on this week's episode, we discuss Bruce Willis' recent decision to retire from acting to focus on his personal health. We discuss his iconic career, his evolution from TV star to movie star, and what his roles have meant to us. We follow this discussion with an interview from director Matt Eskandari who has worked with Willis recently. As well as reviews of Everything Everywhere All at Once and Morbius, and the latest on the slap heard round the world between Will Smith and Chris Rock.

The South by Southwest Festival is one of the largest of its kind in the world. In a typical year, thousands of fans arrive in downtown Austin, TX to partake in a couple of weeks of great music, technology, and film.

Over the course of several days, the 2022 SXSW Film Festival screened 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 25 films and episodics are on our docket this year (including The Lost City, Everything Everywhere All at Once, Halo, Shining Girls, and many more), and we review them all, as well as snippets from panels, an interview with Tony Hawk, and much more!

On this compilation episode, we discuss bringing characters back from the dead, cliffhangers in movies, unlikeable yet loveable characters, and weird casting choices.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we’re talking about several topics, the first of which is bringing characters back from the dead. And we mean actually, truly, verified dead characters on a TV series or a movie that later comes back from the dead. Is this cliche? Is it a copout? Does this concept EVER work without lowering the stakes in whatever the property is? 

Then after a short discussion on cliffhangers in movies, we move on to ROYYYYY KEEENNNNNNNT! The world has become enamored with Ted Lasso’s Roy Kent as have we, and this has inspired us to discuss unlikeable yet loveable TV characters. Perhaps it’s only in your eyes or maybe the writing or performance evolved into a character with a deeper understanding. Either way, our topic this week revolves around these fascinating characters on television who ultimately turned your frown upside down.

Then we move on to some of the weird casting choices to come out of Hollywood – the good and the bad – like a 30 year old playing teenager Evan Hansen, Tom Cruise playing the 6′ 5″ Jack Reacher, Gary Oldman playing a dwarf in Tiptoes, or Miles Teller playing pretty much anyone. Weird is a relative term, and we debate these odd choices, for better and worse.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, it's time to discuss DC's latest reboot, The Batman!

With echoes in tone of films like Klute, The French Connection, Seven, and Zodiac, The Batman stars Robert Battinson – sorry, Pattinson – as billionaire Bruce Wayne. You might have heard that his parents died when he was a child, and his whole life has been consumed with grief and anger over their loss, causing him to don a cape and cowl and torture criminals on the streets as The Batman.

The Batman begins in Year 2 of his crusade and shades of The Long Halloween take root as the mayor is murdered on Halloween. The Batman has been beating low level thugs and now a series of murders are riddled with clues left specifically for him. Who is this masked man murdering all of these elitist “white priviledged assholes”? Well, it’s the Riddler, and he’s a creepy unknown who wants Bruce on his side for some reason, and now The Batman must team up with Commissioner Gordon to track him down before he kills again. And also, uncover the secret as to why…

We end the podcast by revisiting a conversation on vigilantes, and why we love them.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we revisit a topic that simply fails to change much, video game movies. It's been decades since Hollywood began cranking out video game adaptations, but unlike other mediums, movies cannot seem to find that sweet spot that appeals to both gamers and film fans alike. It's rare that Hollywood even approaches a good movie with these properties. So this episode we discuss this struggle, and answer the most important question: why can't video game movies get it right?!

Also this week: movie and TV news including a discussion on the evolution of binge watching and coming back to weekly releases, intellectual properties taking over content, as well as spoiler-free reviews of Uncharted and Dog.  Then we are joined by the Executive Director of the Beloit International Film Festival to discuss the event, which runs from Feb 25 - Mar 6, 2022. All this and more on this week's all-new episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast.

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we decided we would come together as a unified group and do the one thing that no one else on the planet seems willing to do anymore: we're going to admit we were WRONG! You know how it is these days, every conversation you have online or with friends on your movie or TV show of choice always ends up with people treating their opinions as facts, and no one seems capable of admitting they might just be incorrect. So on this episode, we each dive into our own treasure chest of opinions over the years and admit a few things we were definitely wrong about.

Also this week: movie and TV news including MoviePass attempting a comeback and Marvel's Netflix shows leaving the service, Entertainment Weekly and the death of print media, as well as spoiler-free reviews of Death on the Nile and Kimi.  All this and more on this week's all-new episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast.

Jack Reacher is a retired military investigator who simply wants to now live his life however he sees fit. But after a murder is pinned on him and things somehow get even more personal, Reacher sets off for justice by using the little details that matter to find those responsible and – if possible – burn them all to the ground. He’s a man who never bluffs, never quits, and he never backs down.
