Miles tells the story of a young man named Miles who is looking for a way out of his small town. His original plans for a college bound escape are thwarted when his dad suddenly passes away, and Miles and his mother learn that his father had squandered his college fund on a fling. Desperate for a scholarship, Miles signs up for the only sport he’s any good at, volleyball. Of course, with a school that only has a girls volleyball team, this means Miles will need to buck the system and play anyway.

Miles stars Tim Boardman, Molly Shannon, Missi Pyle and Paul Reiser, and is a sweet tale of a kid just trying to leave small town life behind him. 

For our exclusive interview, we talk to director Nathan Adloff about leaving his own small town, the journey to get his film made, rounding up his cast, and much more.

Shimmer Lake twists the conventional wisdom of storytelling on its ear by allowing the events of a small-town crime to unfold in reverse order. Working from Friday back to Tuesday, director Oren Uziel constructs a story of despair as a local Sheriff, Zeke Sikes (Benjamin Walker), works to bring to justice three criminals who robbed the local bank. Learning that one of them may just be his brother Andy (Rainn Wilson), Zeke sets off on a trail of lies and murder. With a host of suspects, twists, and revelations, how will this path ultimately lead back to Shimmer Lake?

After graduating with a BA in Drama from Duke University and an MFA in Acting from the Yale School of Drama, Adam Saunders set his sights on a career in Hollywood. As the pursuit of his craft intensified, Adam found he also had a knack for both developing and producing projects. Often the unsung hero of film, a producer fields many behind-the-scenes responsibilities that directly contribute to our favorite films, from lining up capital and casting commitments to finalizing distribution deals.

As the CEO of Footprint Features, Adam produced Shimmer Lake and explains why this was “one the best scripts I’ve ever read”. He also elaborates on the complexities of shooting a film in reverse order, assembling the all-star cast, and how their deal with Netflix ultimately came to fruition.

Footprint Features has several exciting projects lined up, not the least of which is the newly released Shimmer Lake. Don’t miss this exclusive interview with producer, Adam Saunders.

Shimmer Lake releases on Netflix June 9, 2017  Facebook | Twitter

For decades, strong female characters have continued to grow in popular culture. Heroines have graced the silver screen from Ellen Ripley to Katniss Everdeen to the just released Wonder Woman. Likewise, television has held its own legion of women in the forms of the Bionic Woman, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Sydney Bristow. Heroism lies in everyone, but this week we’re only discussing the ladies.

On this week’s podcast, we discuss what it takes to be a hero. Is it selflessness, bravery, or just an epic level of ass-kickery? We also offer up our individual picks for the top 3 heroic female characters in TV and film.

Also this week: reviews of Wonder Woman, The Wedding Invitation, and War Machine. We also offer another installment of HO Court as we look into recent litigation regarding a lawsuit claiming the recent Alamo Drafthouse “Women’s Only” screenings is discrimination.

The Wedding Invitation follows best friends Lucy (Rainy Kerwin), Ryann (Camille Guaty), and Nectar (Christina Ulloa) as they navigate the waters of single life, each looking for a date after a last-minute invitation to the wedding of a lifetime. Lucy is a woman who has just lost her job, her boyfriend and is forced back into the dating scene at the worst time. Ryann is the bold friend overfilled with confidence, yet is still terrified of asking out the one guy she has her eye on. Nectar never seems to be in need of attention, yet everyone she spends time with is obviously the wrong match for her. The three friends endure ups-and-downs and Lucy guides us through the worst time in her life as she searches for that one special guy to whisk her off to this most exclusive wedding, and she might have found him in a charming guitar teacher.

Lighthearted and fun, The Wedding Invitation is a charming romantic comedy. For this exclusive interview, writer-director-star, Rainy Kerwin discusses the path her film has traveled to finally arrive as her feature film debut. She elaborates on what prompted her to craft this story of sisterhood and women making the first move, and why the actors were such a fit for Rainy's passion project.

We might have taken the week off here at The Hollywood Outsider, but that does not mean we do not have quality podcast entertainment to offer!

In additions to our reviews of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch, we selected three of our most popular topics so far this year and combined them into on mammoth episode.

We begin with binge-worthy TV shows, then a bit of necessary Oscar changes, and finally we discuss how television has changed since we were children. If you are new to the show, here is a highlight reel of what listeners enjoyed earlier in the year, and if you are a long-time listener, enjoy three of your favorite topics all on one episode!

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

Be Afraid follows John and Heather Chambers (Brian Krause, Jaimi Paige), shortly after relocating to a small town in Pennsylvania. After he initially seems to experience sleep paralysis, John begins to discover that his home is being targeted by ominous beings lurking in the shadows, seemingly led by a nefarious figure known only as The Hat Man. Fearing for his family's safety, John dives into a complex history of mysterious local disappearances which may lead to a secret this town never wants revealed.

Drew Gabreski's latest film, Be Afraid, carries with it an intriguing concept revolving around the deep history and lore of "shadow people". This phenomenon - which revolves around those unique moments when we catch a flicker of movement in the corner of our eye only to discover nothing is present - continues to grow around the world. Skeptics believe these "shadows" are mere flights of an overactive imagination, while more open-minded intellectuals theorize they could be anything from ghosts to interdimensional beings to even time travelers.

Whatever they are, as he discusses in our exclusive interview, Drew was directly affected by visions of a so-called "Hat Man" as a child. These memories prompted him to work with screenwriter Gerald Nott on a shared vision of how a story in this world could be brought to life on film. Drew elaborates on those experiences, as well as the journey the film took from the initial stages at After Dark to its current release on VOD.

An intriguing interview with a new talent on-the-rise, take a listen to our interview with director, Drew Gabreski.

Be Afraid releases digitally and On Demand June 1, 2017.

Television shows, unlike podcasts, typically cannot run all year long. Therefore, at the end of every season, we are graced with what’s known as the “Season Finale”, that last episode that is supposed to both complete the current year, while also teasing next year’s storyline.

Sometimes these season finales work, often times they leave us throwing darts at our TV sets. So this week, we decided to break down what makes for a great season finale, as well as what our all-time favorite for a season ender is.

We also discuss our most annoying TV clichés, what college movie parties we wish we were invited to, and even some movie news.  

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

Ya know who always gets the shaft when we’re talking about movie heroes? Sidekicks. That’s right, those rough-and-tumble heroes and heroines who might not have the title of the film, but they help save the world just the same. Through their own toughness, nobility, sometimes even flippant disdain for protocol, these are the ones who keep our heroes honest.

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 finally hitting theaters, we felt now is the perfect time for our latest Movie Battle Royale! So we dive into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and debate who is ultimately the greatest sidekick to compliment the heroes of the MCU. Black Widow? Vision? Rocket Raccoon? Eight sidekicks enter our ring this week, and only one will emerge as the Greatest Sidekick EVER!

Later on in the show, we also discuss our personal picks for movies this summer. From Most Anticipated Overall to Most Anticipated Disappointment, these are our the films we’re most excited and terrified for.

Three decades ago, one of the greatest years in television and film occurred. Classics like Lethal Weapon, Predator, Dirty Dancing and Good Morning, Vietnam graced theaters. The Cosby Show, Cheers, Golden Girls and Murder, She Wrote took over our television sets. It was a prime time for entertainment.

If The Fast and the Furious series has taught us anything, it’s that film buffs love some mindless action.

On this episode of our podcast, we discuss some of our favorite insane action sequences, those scenes that test the very limits of physics and common sense. Whether it be sports cars bringing down a jumbo jet, of John McClane taking one down with a lighter, it’s time to examine just how crazy we like our wanton destruction.

After the normal show, we dive into our reactions on the latest adventures of Dominic Toretto and family in The Fate of the Furious.

13 Reasons Why is the new Netflix series based on Jay Asher’s book revolving around Hannah Baker, a teenager who commits suicide. Unlike so many suicides where we never know the whys, Hannah left behind tapes where she detailed the 13 reasons, and those responsible, for her taking her own life. The series follows Clay Jensen, who receives the box of tapes and proceeds to listen to them, one episode at a time, trying to piece together what happened.

We will be going into spoilers for this episode, so please come back to us if you have not already completed the show.

We discuss the themes the show presents and why think the series is resonating with so many people.

Thirteen Thoughts on 13 Reasons Why

  1. Let’s talk about this concept, a suicide where we learn the reasons why through audio tapes left behind by the deceased
  2. Differences between the book and the series
  3. Hannah Baker downward spiral and Kathryn Langford’s portrayal | Is it wrong to legitimately miss a fictional character?
  4. Was it right for her to assign blame in this way, did all of these characters deserve this?
  5. Clay Jenson and Dylan Minnette’s portrayal
  6. He seemed to be on a crusade for justice, while these tapes crushed him emotionally. Was that fair or too much for Hannah to put this on him?
  7. Where the hell did Tony keep coming from, does he ever actually attend class?
  8. Remaining standouts from the characters / cast
  9. Do you feel like it accurately captured mental health issues such as depression and suicide appropriately, some people feel very strongly both ways?
  10. Rumors, cyber shaming and bullying, rape. This was a lot for one person to endure, was it a fair representation of the modern teenage existence?
  11. If this were real, and I feel like so many people are treating it like it is, what could Hannah Baker have done differently? Would one person make a difference like her tapes implies?
  12. How the season ends / loose threads

13. Do you want another season, if so, how would you want to see it?

Jumping the shark is a term that has been around for decades. Originating in the fifth season premiere of Happy Days, where the character of Fonzie water skis and literally jumps over a shark, the term has come to define that moment of ludicrous insanity where a TV show takes a turn it can never recover from.

For this episode, we take a look at when some of our favorite television shows made that turn. Some might surprise you, while others you will see coming a mile away. It’s a fun discussion on a topic that never seems to go out of style.

Television is nothing like it used to be.

Many of us remember the days of rabbit ears, three channels, and the American Anthem sign-off every night at midnight. Maybe we grew up with All in the Family, Good Times, Miami Vice, Family Ties, Cheers, Friends, The X-Files, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Whatever time period you are from, do you remember what TV was like back then?

On this week’s episode, we look back at the television of our childhood, as well as how we do TV now. From 3 channels and limited options, to just too much TV to even contemplate, we are cracking open Pandora’s Box and peeking inside. This is a dose of nostalgia you won’t want to miss!

M.F.A. follows Francesca Eastwood’s Noelle, a shy college art student. Attending a campus party, Noelle is raped by a suitor and her life is irrevocably altered. Finding no solace within the school or her friends, she confronts her attacker with tragic results. Noelle is horrified, yet there is something of a tangible relief in knowing that justice has effectively been served. As she summons an emerging strength within, Noelle follows a new path as an avenger of sorts. A vigilante who can punish those who have so casually destroyed lives like hers, all while a detective (Clifton Collins Jr.) nips at her heels.

M.F.A. is director Natalia Leite's follow-up to her debut feature, Bare. Written by Leah McKendrick, M.F.A. is a psychological thriller by structure, while offering a palette with which Leite and her team can explore deeper themes of campus sexual assault, the PTSD victims often succumb to after their trauma, advocacy, and even the discrepancies of consent. Francesca Eastwood maneuvers the many facets of Noelle with breathless ease and determination, and by the film's conclusion, the audience is spurred into discussion.

For our exclusive interview with Natalia, we discuss a wide array of topics. Beginning with her first realization that filmmaking was in her future, we lead into the more complicated aspects of Natalia's film, sexual assault treated as a plot device in modern film, production woes, and what she hopes to accomplish once M.F.A. reaches distribution.

You can find more on Natalia and her work at NataliaLeite.com and the film itself at MFAMovie.com

Here Alone follows Ann (Lucy Walters), a young woman forced into solace as society has been nearly wiped out due to an unforeseen plague. With a risk of infection surrounding her, Ann cements her position deep in the woods, cutting herself off from human contact. After a chance encounter with an injured man, Chris (Adam David Thompson) and his companion Olivia (Gina Piersanti), Ann must decide if she will remain in hiding, or if fate will force her hand.

In the Tribeca Audience Award winning Here Alone, director Rod Blackhurst downplays post-apocalyptic horror and instead focuses on characters. Specifically the choices a person will make when all reason has seemingly vanished from sight. For our exclusive interview, Rod discusses his previous work on the Amanda Knox documentary, harsh production elements endured throughout, identifying Lucy Walters as the perfect Ann, and why this was a story he needed to tell. Don’t miss this engaging interview with a director on-the-rise!

Here Alone arrives in theaters and on VOD March 31, 2017

The films discussed on this episode of The Hollywood Outsider Podcast:

Title Synopsis
Walking Out David, 14, city mouse of a kid, travels to rural Montana for his annual hunting trip with Cal, 40, his lonely, estranged “off-the-grid” father. As they ascend deep into the woods, Cal teaches David about predators and prey, fathers and sons, the past and the increasingly complicated present. An encounter with a bear cub results in serious injuries to both David and Cal. After futile attempts to hike out together, David resolves to carry his father on his back to safety while simultaneously healing his broken spirit. "Walking Out" is an intimate epic, a relentlessly primal, fiercely rawboned tale of connection, survival and the true path to manhood.
The Transfiguration An official selection at the Cannes Film Festival, writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature “The Transfiguration” follows troubled teen Milo who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence, “The Transfiguration” is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City.
This Is Your Death Today’s audience has become infatuated with watching others degrade themselves on national television. They crave a wild argument, a bloody fight, or a publicized scandal. It has become the ultimate source of entertainment. But when the boundaries seem like they can’t be pushed any further, game-show host Adam Rogers steps in to break down the wall by hosting a new game show where contestants end their lives for a chance to win money. Adam will only be satisfied if his reality show is number one in the ratings, and he’ll stop at nothing to make sure he gets there, even if it means letting go of his humanity.
Small Town Crime Ex-cop Mike Kendall (John Hawkes) discovers the body of a young woman and, in an act of self-redemption, becomes hellbent on finding the killer. While his un-couth and quirky detective style helps break open the case, his dogged determination unwittingly puts his sister (Octavia Spencer) and best friend (Anthony Anderson) in danger. Additional cast members include Robert Forster, Clifton Collins, Jr., Michael Vartan, James Lafferty, Daniel Sunjata, Caity Lotz, Jeremy Ratchford, Don Harvey, Stefanie Scott and Dale Dickey.
Win It All Jake Johnson stars as small time gambler Eddie Garrett, who agrees to watch a duffel bag for an acquaintance who is heading to prison. When he discovers cash in the bag, he’s unable to resist the temptation and winds up deeply in debt. When the prison release is shortened, Eddie suddenly has a small window of time to win all the money back.
Going to Brazil Four childhood friends are reunited at a wedding in Rio. But when they accidentally kill a young man during a party that gets out of hand, they are forced to flee the city in a crazy adventure that takes them from the favelas to the posh embassies, from the beaches to the rainforest, and is filled with caipirinhas, guns and bikinis.
Hounds of Love In suburban Perth during the mid 1980s, people are unaware that women are disappearing at the hands of serial killers John and Evelyn White. After an innocent lapse in judgment, Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted by the disturbed couple. With her murder imminent, Vicki realizes she must find a way to drive a wedge between Evelyn and John if she is to survive. Hounds of Love is an exercise in expertly-crafted tension, offering a bold, challenging debut from writer/director Ben Young.
Prevenge A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe, "Prevenge" follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree that’s as funny as it is vicious. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood. "Prevenge" marks the directorial debut from Lowe, who is a triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own pregnancy.
Goran Goran lives a simple life surrounded by his friends and family in the snow-covered Croatian highlands. This carefree existence is put to an end when his wife announces she is expecting a child. Whereas they have every reason to celebrate, the good news will unleash the fiery personalities of the highlanders, leading to a darkly comic twist of events. The white winter will soon turn red.
Colossal Gloria is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
Fits & Starts David Warwik is a struggling writer who has been toiling away at the same novel for years. His wife Jennifer is a hot young literary figure, who has just released a new masterpiece. When her publisher invites the couple to an artists' salon at his home in Connecticut, the pair embark on a twisted journey, and David must face his demons and try to “not be weird” among the waspy salon guests and competitive art set in attendance. He encounters a dentist with publishing aspirations, a book critic full of condescending advice, a fellow writer who may know his wife a little too well, an old “friend," and a high powered bipolar literary agent who just might be able to help him...for a price.
Like Me After posting a video of herself robbing a convenience store, Kiya amasses a huge social media following. A reckless loner, she seeks some form of genuine human connection. Through her travels, she encounters a drifter, an Internet troll and a paint huffing outsider who are all pulled into her circle of chaos, junk food, and drugs. In a world of fabricated personalities, Kiya is intent on exposing something gutturally truthful about humanity, but ultimately, she must confront herself.
Dara Ju Seyi, a 24-year-old Nigerian-American, works on Wall Street. Desperate to succeed because of his outsider status—due to class and race—he commits a crime, insider trading, which brings his entire world crashing down on him. Seyi’s troubled circumstances force him finally to confront his tumultuous relationship with his ailing father, his romantic relationship with his privileged white girlfriend, and his racial and immigrant backgrounds—with nothing less at stake for him than his soul.
M. F. A. An art student struggling with creativity is violently raped by a fellow classmate. After attempting the traditional routes to cope with her trauma, she impulsively confronts her attacker - a decision that has deadly repercussions. Her world is turned upside down as a chilling reality is uncovered: she is one of many silenced sexual assault survivors on campus. A vigilante is born- retribution is the inspiration she's been waiting for.
A Critically Endangered Species The story of the final weeks leading up to the disappearance (and presumable death) of Maya Dardel, an internationally respected poet and novelist who lived, until 2016, in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Maya announces on National Public Radio that she is going to end her life and that young male writers may compete to become executor of her estate. The man who wins will inherit Maya’s home, land, books, unpublished manuscripts, and be expected to protect and promote her posthumous reputation.
Most Beautiful Island "Most Beautiful Island" is a psychological thriller examining the plight of undocumented female immigrants hoping to make a life in New York. Shot on Super 16 with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, "Most Beautiful Island" chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet while striving to escape her past. As Luciana's day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome, unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game. Lives are placed at risk, while psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.
The Ballad of Lefty Brown Lefty Brown is a 63 year old sidekick. Loyal, crotchety and rarely taken seriously, he’s ridden with Western legend Eddie Johnson for his entire adult life. Now Johnson has been appointed Senator of Montana, and despite the objections of his spirited wife Laura, he plans to leave Lefty in charge of his ranch. But when a rustler kills Johnson, Lefty is forced from his partner’s shadow. Devastated by guilt, he sets out on a journey that will reunite him with old friends US Marshall Tom Harrah and Governor James Bierce as he confronts the ugly realities of frontier justice.
Us and Them With it’s raw energy and stream of consciousness plot, "Us and Them" is a backlash against the drone of British period dramas. Danny is an ordinary working class kid who is tired of the rough deal he faces. His plan? To start a revolution by streaming attacks against the one percent on the web. His goal? To terrify the elite into bringing about change. Writer/director Joe Martin taps into his blue collar roots to capture the zeitgeist of outsider politics that have gripped the western world. In "Us and Them" he lays bare the inequality and anger that wrong footed the media and led to the shock events of Brexit and Trump’s victory.
Atomic Blonde The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
Baby Driver A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
Free Fire Bold, breathless and wickedly fun, "Free Fire" is an electrifying action comedy about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Acclaimed filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High Rise) propels the audience head-on into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film as he crafts a spectacular parody –– and biting critique –– of the insanity of gun violence. Everyone’s got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control. Packed with witty one-liners, flamboyant characters and remarkable feats of cinematic gunplay, Free Fire is a full-throttle action extravaganza that keeps things fresh and fun with Wheatley’s alternately buoyant and savage sense of humor.

In 1991, Disney introduced a tale as old as time to the world in the form of the animated classic, Beauty and the Beast. 26 years later, they're at it again as they return to their recent successes with live-action remakes. Emma Watson stars as Belle and Dan Stevens stars as the Beast in this modern spin on the timeless story. 

Be our guest for this special episode of our podcast, as we discuss what we loved about this latest interpretation, as well as what simply did not work. The computer imagery, production, additional music and score - everything is on the table.

As Marvel has also released their latest Defenders-related series, we also discuss Iron Fist. From the negative critical reaction to where it's all leading, and is this even a series worth investing in?

While many of us watch movies to avoid the need for actual reading, there’s a cornucopia of films out there that we have to watch with subtitles to understand what’s going on with the plot. We welcome special guest, Shawn Fuller (from "The Horribly Awkward Podcast") to discuss our willingness, or lack thereof, to sit through a movie where we have to pay attention to those pesky words at the bottom of the screen. We even share in some of our favorite non-English speaking movies.

We’re also still talking about Batman, despite the fact that we’re a long ways away from filming, as well as the theatrical release of an upcoming Netflix movie from the director of “Snowpiercer”. Also, are you confused about the possibility of a sequel to “Gladiator”? We sure are, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about that crazy idea from Ridley Scott. And speaking of sequels, we’re finally getting the follow-up to “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, but we’re unsure how we feel about the casting possibilities.

For far too long, our favorite television universes have roamed around, searching for answers. So what if we gave them a bit of a hand? What if we dropped a prominent movie character into a TV universe to settle the chaos or fix the problem? How would we do that, exactly? Lend us your ears, because you’re about to find out!

We also discuss the Beloit Film Fest and what is has to offer, Tron and Overboard reboots, and tackle some community questions. What to know what movies shame us the most? How about the grossest thing we’ve ever witnessed at the theater? And how did we end up with Miles Teller: Movie Assassin?!

Remember the first time you sat down to watch a television show, maybe it was a recommendation or just random chance, and then six hours later you were still fixated on that TV set, refusing to turn it off? What a great feeling that is, to know that you’ve spent countless hours of your life just staring at the TV like it was an achievement of some kind.

Television has killed more beloved characters than most world wars, yet we continue to watch and admire the sheer brutality. But not every character death is a punch to the gut. Occasionally, it becomes a moment of celebration and joy.

This week, we’re discussing TV character deaths we cheered for. Those beloved characters that either deserved every second of pain they received, or they just annoyed us so much we had to see them go. It’s time to celebrate death!

Also, stay after our regular episode as we have a spoiler-filled discussion on John Wick: Chapter Two.

Directed by Thomas Zellen, Beyond The Edge stars Sean Maher as Dr. Abe Anderson, a scientist recruited for a long mission into space with Casper Van Dien accompanying him as Lt. Colonel Harold Richards. Their mission is simple, take a ship propelled by theoretical physics to the far edge of the universe…and see what’s out there.

As Abe and Richards each deal with depression and isolation during their decade-plus mission, when they finally reach the edge, their perceptions and realities of the universe are challenged.

Many of you know Sean Maher as Simon Tam from Firefly and Serenity, Sean has had an extensive career in Hollywood. He left New York for L.A. when he landed the lead role in the Fox series, Ryan Caulfield: Year One. That lead to many parts in shows like Party of Five, The Playboy Club and many more. Lately, he’s also been voicing the character of Nightwing in several DC animated films.

For this interview, Sean stopped by to discuss his career and specifically this latest film, Beyond the Edge (formally known as ISRA 88), which arrives on video on demand from Screen Media Films on February 7th. The film is a very existential look at these two characters, but primarily Maher’s Abe Anderson, and leaves you with a quite a bit to debate as you reach the conclusion.

Take a listen to our exclusive interview with Sean Maher.

We all talk about it every time we head to the theater. Each time a villain comes up against our hero and they have nowhere to turn, we turn to our friends with us and yell exactly what we think our leading man or woman should do.

Well, this week, we’re going to save some lives. Together, we have put together a list of some of the most iconic movie villains (including Darth Vader, Jason, Predator and more), and each of us has crafted our own specific way to defeat these horrendous baddies. Who is the most effective host when dealing with the worst of the worst? Lend us your ears and decide for yourself!

What happens when a movie seemingly has everything? A perfect story, director, cast – everything lines up just right. Then it releases, and it’s a flaming dumpster fire. How could something so right go so horribly wrong?

Aaron sits down with Eric England, director of Contracted, the upcoming Huntsville with Sophie Turner and this new film, Get the Girl.

Releasing on January 27th in theaters and On Demand, Justin Dobies stars as Clarence, a wealthy young man who is in love with a local bartender named Alexandra, played by Elizabeth Whitson.

Unfortunately, Elizabeth is oblivious to Clarence. Desperate to win her affections, Clarence decides to do what any rational man would do and hire Noah Segan’s Patrick to kidnap Elizabeth, so Clarence can save her and be her hero. When Elizabeth shows that she’s no damsel in distress and ends up killing one of the kidnappers, things just keep getting darker.

Eric discusses his journey to Hollywood, his love of Fincher and Hitchcock, as well as why this film felt like a story he needed to tell. Enjoy our interview with Get the Girl director, Eric England.

Director Aram Rappaport sits down with Aaron to discuss his new film, The Crash, starring Frank Grillo and Minnie Driver. From concept to execution, this is intriguing interview with an up-and-coming director. 

The Crash, now on Video On Demand, stars Frank Grillo as Guy Clifton, a very intelligent man who manipulated the US financial system for his own gain, only to get busted and is now facing serious jail time. When the US government realizes there is an impending breach by cyber-terrorists that could crash the system, they agree to bring in Guy and his team of hackers and programmers to thwart the attack before it ruins America. The film also stars Minnie Driver as his business savvy wife, dealing with both her husband’s possible prison sentence as well as her daughter’s serious medical affliction.

The one very distinct difference between The Crash and other thrillers in this genre is that Guy Clifton is no hero, he’s selfish, and has manipulated his way to the top. And the only people he seems to respect are his family, who also end up wearing the burden of his sins.

Every year, we love to celebrate the holiday season with our listeners, and there is no better way to do that then with our 3rd Annual Holiday Special!

It all started with a random idea, as Aaron and Scott were big fans of holiday specials, and podcasts seemed to skip over the idea completely. We decided we can do whatever we want here at The Hollywood Outsider, so let’s create our own tradition and the annual special was born.

Every year we do a little something different, and this year we are incorporating one of our most popular topics – The Movie Battle Royale! We’ve all debated what IS a Christmas movie and what is not, but what is - ultimately - the GREATEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE EVERY MADE? By the end of this episode, with a little help from our special guest Amy, it will finally be decided.

That’s not all, oh no. After our debate, the Christmas joy kicks in as we get a little personal and share our personal memories of the holiday season. Favorite movies, TV specials, moments, and even desserts – everything is covered this year!

With a special opening from John, a little whimsy from Aaron, and of course the annual Christmas Poem from Scott – This is the one podcast you don’t want to miss this holiday season!

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

Discussed on this episode of The Hollywood Outsider Movie and TV Podcast:

  • What is the greatest Christmas movie ever?
  • Movies and TV specials to kick off Christmas right
  • Best and Worst Christmas movie memories

First up, what are some of our favorite guilty pleasures? You know, those movies so bad they’re almost embarrassing to admit to the public that you love? The ones we watch under the cloak of shame and forever neglect to mention in gatherings for worry of street cred being revoked, THOSE movies.

Moving on, we debate bad movie titles and what makes the worst of the worst. Is it nothing more than just a poor choice of words, or is there a deeper problem with the titles studios sometimes choose?

Lastly, after reviews of new films like SING and Pet, we discuss in detail Season 1 of Westworld. Now that HBO’s newest juggernaut has completed its first round, what do we think of this latest science fiction opus, and are we excited for another round?

We’re all fans of something. It could be a television series, a classic film, or even a celebrated filmmaker. We’ve also all been in the position to question that fandom when behind-the-scenes drama rises up.

Our topic this week is what does it take to lose us as fans? What issues are so important to us that it would cause us to stop watching a TV series or a movie, or even stop following an actor or filmmaker we love?

Every year, we learn something from film and television. Maybe a movie teaches us something about society, or perhaps a TV show illustrates an entertainment we didn’t know existed, or maybe we just learned you can make an F-bomb dropping superhero and people will pay out their bum for it.

Our topic this week is what we learned from movies and television in 2016. Both hilarious and serious, it’s time to drop a knowledge grenade on the internet and hopefully you’ll learn something new as well.

Remakes are everywhere, and generally they are done horribly wrong or blandly. We even started a podcast specifically to address that in Remake This Movie RIGHT, where we remade our favorites in the mold of a film fans would like. Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn’t think that way. They want by-the-numbers retreads and name recognition. Everything is a brand now, if it’s identifiable, it could sell. If not as a movie, as a TV show. And nothing is sacred.

Well this week, we are going to discuss some of our choices for what should get a remake. Not necessarily based on name, but on concepts or possibilities. If you could remake a film that maybe didn’t come together as strong as it could have been, or perhaps was a bit ahead of its time, what movie would you choose?

After our normal episode, we discuss our reactions to Marvel’s latest superhero launch, as Benedict Cumberbatch dons the cloak of Doctor Strange. Magic has finally landed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and this is our take on every aspect of our expanded galaxy.

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

As the real world closes in on yet another President, we decided now was the time to take a hard look at film and television and vote on our picks for the greatest President in history.

What makes a great President? Is it the strength to do what others won’t? Is nobility in the face of adversity? Or perhaps it’s simply putting the needs of the country ahead of yourself. We dive into our own political needs in entertainment as our listeners vote for the Greatest of All-Time.

What are your scariest movie or TV moments? Not the most frightening film or show as a whole, but those specific scenes that sent the hairs on the back of your neck straight into the air? Or perhaps you were watching when something horrifying occurred that hit you square in the pit of your stomach.

These moments of dread are what we are discussing on this Halloween edition of The HO podcast. What scares us and especially those little slivers of time where a film or TV show went above and beyond in the terror department.

Be sure to stay after our normal show for our take on this week’s Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere.

Everyone has their favorite, even those who are not truly fans of the genre, but who is ultimately the greatest horror villain in cinematic history? Are Freddy and Jason too jokey?

All of your favorites are on the chopping block as our most popular topic returns just in time for Halloween. Are you ready to rumble? This is HOrror Movie Villain Battle Royale!

Every year we hear the news about yet another film genre that is no longer relevant, or that is being revived by some exciting new film that took a tired genre in an interesting way. Is it even possible for a genre to die out completely?

This week, we discuss the possibilities of genres being snuffed out over the course of history, as well as what ours and our listeners have deemed the genres that need to be put out to pasture.

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett) seeks out seven outlaws led by Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt to save them. As they prepare the town for the inevitable showdown, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for much more than money.

Listen to our latest reactions podcast as David and Amanda join Aaron to discuss the remake of a cinematic classic. Does this new Magnificent Seven reinvigorate the western genre? How do all of the actors fare? Most importantly, is a sequel to this ridiculously fun action film even possible?

Over the past three seasons one character has been through more than any other on The Blacklist. Today Megan Boone stops by to chat with the guys about Agent Elizabeth Keen, but more so about Megan herself. In today’s world of media frenzy and social media especially, it is hard sometimes to remember that there is a person hearing those words someone types or speaks, and Megan shares with us how she is trying to assist in crafting a world for future generations that can be as civil online as we should be in person.

In season three, the unthinkable happened to Agent Keen. Where does Megan channel those feelings from? What drives her to create the character of Elizabeth Keen the way she has? When you hear this interview you will most certainly look at the character of Liz differently, and maybe even the world and your actions in it.

Every once in a while, a sequel comes along that makes you sit back, take stock, and wonder, “What the hell is Hollywood thinking?!”

Our topic this week is unnecessary sequels, why do we have them? Not the worst sequels, mind you, we are talking about the most UNNECESSARY sequels ever made. Movies where the original didn’t even do well financially, it’s been too many years, the original stars didn’t return, or maybe the story was already complete. Those movies where, by most standards of reasoning, a sequel shouldn’t even be a thought. And ultimately, what IS the most unnecessary movie sequel ever?

One of our most popular topics is our Movie Battle Royale. Eight great movies walk into the ring, eight favorites or classics. We then begin the process of voting for the best of the best, until we are left with one. Final. Champion. The greatest film of that genre in the known HO universe.

This time, we’re storming the beaches of Hollywood to identify the Greatest War Movie. What film about war spoke to us all the most? Could it be the heartbreak of Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan? How about the brutal tragedy in Platoon? Perhaps we’ll get a bit more classical with The Longest Day? But you can never rule out the power of Shakespeare in Henry V. This week, all bets are off and the battle is on as we settle this debate once and for all.

That’s not all. Also this week, Aaron recounts his recent media visit at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and the very real potential for an eventual visit to Mars, we craft our own perfect Ghostbusters team, and close the show with a very personal announcement from one of our founding members.

A hook is described as the nucleus of both a film and its screenplay. It is what grabs the viewer's attention, preferably in the first 5–10 minutes, as a reader might expect to find a literary hook in the first chapter of a novel. For this episode, we discuss our favorite movie or television hooks, and why they appeal to us.

What is it about haunted houses that terrify us to the very core? Is it the idea that something has taken up residence in our home and we are powerless to stop it? Or is that we just shake in our boots at the thought of ghosts in general?

We take haunted houses to task on this week’s episode for all the years of torture, getting down to the spine-tingling truth of it all. We also share our thoughts on what is the most horrifying house in the supernatural cinematic universe.

X-Men: Apocalypse begins in 3600 BC, as En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse, as we come to know him) is attempting to move his consciousness and powers to a new body, one that possesses the power of rapid healing, so that it can be added to his collection of abilities. While this happens he is to be protected by his four greatest warriors who unfortunately fail, but not before the transition is complete just as the ceremony chamber collapses into the earth. After a few thousand years, stupid men dig him up and unleash upon Earth...well, the Apocalypse. One which only our beloved gaggle of X-Men can help avert.

This special episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast is dedicated to Bryan Singer's fourth and latest go-round at mutant history as he takes on his most challenging film and foe yet. Where does it end up in the lexicon of Marvel's X-Men films? Did it deserve the critical lashing many have given it? Is Apocalypse everything it could have been? We discuss this film in detail, both spoiler-free and aplenty, so don't miss our X-Men: Apocalypse Reactions Podcast.

Over the course of cinema history, there have been more than a few missteps in terms of casting. Whether it’s a starring or supporting role, which actor plays the part is almost as integral to a film’s success as the story or the special effects. It only takes one bad choice to completely derail a film.

This week we take a look at the worst of the worst in movie casting mistakes. From Anakin Skywalker to Genghis Khan, we run the gamut on the bad decisions Hollywood sometimes forces on us as we each pick our 3 worst movie casting decisions.

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

And that's just the beginning...

Do you remember that song from that one movie? The one that came on the radio as soon as you left the theater, causing you to crank the dial all the way up, drop the windows down and scream out of your window in the vicinity of random strangers?

THAT’S the song we’re talking about this week, as we dive into what we consider to be the greatest original film song of all-time. Is it Purple Rain? Maybe Danger Zone? How about Goldfinger?

Grab that broom handle and bring your vocal stylings along for a trip down memory lane as we determine our personal favorites and even whip up a movie soundtrack of our lives.

Don’t you love it when you are watching your favorite television show, and your favorite character gets him or herself into a predicament that you just know they will wiggle themselves out of…and then they DIE?!

Oh, we’ve all been there. The RAGE that seeps through your pores, the visceral reaction to the fact that a character you have spent tens of hours becoming attached to has just been forever ripped away from your heart.

Is it fair? Is it right? Most importantly, is television getting carried away with it?

This is our topic this week as we discuss TV’s recent obsession with constantly knocking off beloved characters. Not only are they killing too many, a bunch of them KEEP COMING BACK!
