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.

This week, we’re discussing binge worthy TV shows. Those favorites of ours and our listeners that entertained us so much we forgot bathroom breaks and family gatherings just to finish a show out. This has been a requested topic for some time, so let’s get into it!

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?

This week, we discuss our perfect movies gone wrong. Those films that just failed after so much promise, as well as listener picks for movies they think failed them.

We also cover several recent releases including Patriots Day, The Crash, Get the Girl, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.

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?

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

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.

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? Are Michael Myers and Jaws too dated? Is Samara from The Ring real competition? Is Norman Bates even really a horror villain?

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.

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

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.

How many times have we been enjoying a movie or a television series, when something insane happens that glues us to the screen…only to then realize we’ve been duped by yet another useless dream sequence? This week, we’re putting the issue of if we really need dream sequences to bed.

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.

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 what is 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 week, we tackle Alien Invasion movies. Those films that trigger some of our worse fears, that aliens are coming to Earth…and they are not here for peace. What could the greatest invasion film be? Could it be Independence Day, maybe Pacific Rim, how about Men in Black or War of the Worlds? This week, all bets are off as we settle this debate once and for all.

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.

Things go from bad to worse when the guys discover that the valuable family heirloom is now in the hands of a gangster who demands to be paid triple the watch’s value before returning it. 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!

Disney has been the crown jewel of animation for decades, providing family after family with countless hours of laughter, heart, and joy. Beginning with Snow White, Walt Disney began a legacy that remains unrivaled, and this week, The Hollywood Outsider celebrates his legacy.

This week’s topic brings back one of our most popular segments: The Movie Battle Royale! 8 movies enter our cinematic ring of fire, and only can leave the Champion of the HO Universe. This time, we took on an impossible task and broke down our all-time favorite Disney animated classics to eight final films, and only the classic hand-drawn animation are allowed this week.

Will it be Beauty and the Beast? Cinderella? The Lion King? Aladdin? Bambi? Only one film will survive this edition of The Movie Battle Royale!

Who hasn’t been sitting around bored one day and planned out a heist? Come on! Everyone wishes they could be a part of a heist, but then the thought of spending a bit too much time behind bars catches up to us and we settle for watching them on television or in movies.

Well, this week, we’re doing it! Each host is compiling their perfect heist team to steal a priceless object from another. The rules are simple: You get any 6 characters from TV or film, but they cannot be superheroes or super-powered. Who has the best team when all the glass is shattered? Time to find out!

Stick around after our normal show of news, reviews, and heists – as we will discuss the most recent season of The Walking Dead. Did Rick make some bad choices? What is up with Carol? Who is ‘Negan’? Finally, what did we think of THAT ending?!

It seems like things keep going darker these days, and even Disney animated films like Zootopia are tackling harsh topics like diversity. Meanwhile Star Wars, Marvel and DC pump out numerous films that the entire family goes to where there is constant wanton destruction.

That brings us to our topic – What constitutes a family film in 2016?

When you take the kids, mom, grandma, whomever – What does family film even mean in the modern day? Is it relegated to films of yesterday like Old Yeller, or is it anything the entire family can enjoy, regardless of topic or rating? We dive into this and it spurs a spirited discussion on films in general.

Bruce Wayne has been personally affected by the effects of Man of Steel, so much so that he worries about Superman's legacy on our planet. As he grows increasingly leery of Superman's role on Earth as an almost God-like figure, he decides to take matters into his own hands, showing a God what it feels like to be a man. At the same time, Lex Luthor has burst on the scene with a mysterious agenda that will affect both of our heroes. 

For this special bonus episode of The Hollywood Outsider, we dive head-first into the world of Batman v Superman. From the rooftops of Gotham to the streets of Metroplis to the slow-motion of Zack Snyder, we discuss every aspect of the film, including where we think the series should go from here. There is much to discuss, so join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

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 deep into the heart of the film festival portion, and even deeper into the films themselves.

There are well over 100 films, documentaries, and shorts at SXSW and - while we can't see them all - we have a nice sample of what came out of this year's stellar lineup of independent films. 17 movies and TV shows are on the docket, and we review them all...with more than a couple surprises. 

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

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

Beware the Slenderman: On May 31st 2014, in the woods outside Waukesha, Wisconsin, two 12-year-old girls stabbed their classmate 19 times. This is a documentary covering those events and the evolution of Slenderman.

Black: A 15-year-old girl in a black gang in Brussels must choose between loyalty and love when she falls for a Moroccan boy from a rival gang. Keenly aware of the consequences of getting involved with someone from another gang, they begin to imagine a different life for themselves when things go wrong. It's in this criminal milieu that directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah set Black, a pulse-pounding contemporary take on Shakespearean tragedy Romeo & Juliet.

The Trust: Nic Cage and Elijah Wood play a pair of cops investigating a drug invasion stumble upon a mysterious bank vault.

American Fable: When 11-year-old Gitty discovers that her beloved father is hiding a wealthy man in her family's silo in order to save their struggling farm, she is forced to choose between saving the man's life or protecting her family from the consequences of their actions. AMERICAN FABLE is a fairytale thriller set in the 1980s rural Midwest about a courageous girl living in a dark - sometimes magical - world.

Claire In Motion: Claire (Betsy Brandt) is sure of herself, her work and family, until - like a bad dream - her husband disappears, leaving a trail of puzzling secrets that shatter her certainty.

And Punching The Clown: Hapless satirical songwriter Henry Phillips is lured to LA when a veteran TV producer decides to make a show about the life of a loser.

Miss Stevens: A comedy focused on a teacher who chaperones a group of high schoolers to a state drama competition.

I Am Not A Serial Killer: In a small Midwestern town, a troubled teen with homicidal tendencies must hunt down and destroy a supernatural killer whilst keeping his own inner demons at bay.

Demolition: Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a successful investment banker struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash.

In A Valley Of Violence: A revenge Western film set in the 1890s, where a stranger (Ethan Hawke) arrives in a small town seeking vengeance for his murdered friend.

Don’t Breathe: A group of teens break into a blind man's (Stephen Lang) home thinking they'll get away with the perfect crime. They're wrong.

Secrets of the Force Awakens: An inside look at the making of the movie Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015), featuring footage and exclusive interviews with the actors and filmmakers.

The Waiting: A pair of high school kids try to trick an elderly neighbor (James Caan) into thinking his house is haunted.

Before The Sun Explodes: After his wife kicks him out, an anxious comedian is lured in by an intriguing woman with a stalker.

Preacher: After a supernatural event at his church a preacher enlists the help of a vampire to find God.

Crazy is one of the hardest words to define, mostly because it means so many different things to so many people. What unnerves one of us might not even bother another, while society might consider a certain behavior insane while we completely understand it. So what IS crazy to us?

When it comes to movies and television, there are numerous characters to consider and we could honestly spend hours just on this one topic. Instead, this episode we discuss what WE consider to be crazy behavior, and what kinds of behavior truly gets under our skin unlike any other.

We conclude this topic by picking the one character in allllllll of TV and film that we consider to be the craziest crazy of all the crazies. That one character who still haunts us to this very day.

We’ve all been there. You walk out of the theater, pumped and excited from the movie you just sat through. You go on with your life until, suddenly, BAM! A sequel is announced. A continuation of this world or character that you loved is coming back to a theater near you. So you grab your closest friends, you psych yourself up and get ready for what is surely the greatest motion picture in the history of cinema!

And then it’s not.

That’s right, on this week’s podcast, we’re discussing when movie sequels go wrong. When that next chapter in your favorite film franchise forgets its roots or fans and turns into something dreadful. When you say ‘Bad Sequel’, so many films come to mind: Batman and Robin, Speed 2, Jaws 2, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, The Phantom Menace, and the list goes on and on.

What were our worst personal experiences because of bad sequels? What sequels ruined entire franchises for us? Most importantly: What are the absolute WORST movie sequels?

What are we up to? About 412 comic book superhero origin films? It sure feels like it. Every other month, it seems we are treated to another fanciful tale of some down-on-their-luck do-gooder, who randomly stumbles upon a radiated spider or blueprints to a super-suit, and BAM! Now we have us a superhero!

With so many films on this topic, the question must be asked: Which one is The Best? Of every movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Comics, or other publisher – which movie rises above all of their foes to become the greatest origin story for a superhero throughout the history of time itself?!

Thankfully, The Hollywood Outsider has heard your cries for a ruling on this topic. Therefore, for this episode of our podcast, we have setup yet another Movie Battle Royale. This time, 8 movies enter the ring, but only ONE will be crowned the Champion of the HOverse. Could it be the original Superman? Maybe Batman Begins or Spider-Man? What if we just went crazy and proclaimed Hellboy or Spawn the winner? There is only want way to find out, you’re not going to want to miss this podcast!

Police Officers, Federal Agents, Air Marshals – Television and Film are stuffed to the gills with lawmen doing all measures of things in the name of Justice. We have all watched a TV series or a movie and thought – Can a cop REALLY do that? Can they really search a criminal’s car without good reason? Can a Fed claim jurisdiction over a local Sheriff? Most importantly – Can a cop shoot a guy one day and be back on the street the very next day without even filing a report?!

These questions and more are about to finally be laid to rest as we bring in a special guest this week with over 20 years of experience in Law Enforcement to settle these debates once and for all!

Not only do we handle that topic, some upcoming releases, AND discuss some movie and TV news – Stick with us until the very end for our in-depth reactions to the latest Marvel juggernaut: Deadpool. What did we think of the ‘Merc With A Mouth’? Did he live up to lofty expectations? Has the world gone mad for a madman? Will we get an R-rated Wolverine movie because of all of this?

The Challenger, now on VOD and DVD, tells the story of Jaden, a down-on-his-luck man looking to find his way in the world. He turns to a boxing trainer, played by Michael Clarke Duncan in his last role, to teach him how to be both the boxer and man he believes he can be.

Kent Moran directed and stars in the film, and here he sits down with Aaron to discuss his film, what it was like writing and directing, as well as working with Duncan.

The X-Files has returned to our television screens after over a decade away, so what did we think of Mulder and Scully's long-awaited return? In this special episode of The Hollywood Outsider, we begin with what we loved about the original, ground-breaking series - including favorite episodes, why David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are perfect partners, and what got us hooked to begin with. Then we merge naturally to this latest telling of our favorite paranormal supercops and where Chris Carter decided to take the story this time, especially that HUGE twist on the original's lore. 

The Truth Is In Here.

Our topic this week: With all of the controversy this year, is it time to fix The Oscars?

The Oscars have always been the premiere awards event, the best of the best, the most prestigious award in entertainment is The Academy Award. This year’s nominees have arrived not with excitement and elation, but with vitriol and controversy. For the 2nd year in a row, not a single actor of color was nominated for an acting award. But is that because of blatant racism, like many involved with the #OscarsSoWhite movement claim, or is it simply because those were the best performances of the year? We take a look at this divisive topic, in our own special way.

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

  • (0:00 – 25:54) Movie and TV News: Do we need more origin stories from aging heroes, Laurel and Hardy get a biography, Star Wars gets a release date shift, and much more | Trailer discussion on Suicide Squad, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and 10 Cloverfield Lane

Naz and Maalik is the story of two Muslim black youths who also happen to be closeted gay men, and whose antics have drawn the attention of a local FBI agent. The film unfolds casually as we follow Naz and Maalik and learn the pieces of their story as we go.

The film takes a very simple approach to a complicated subject, instead of hammering you over the head with a myriad of social issues, director Jay Dockendorf lets the film play out naturally over the course of an entire day. There are no dire moments of senseless violence or sudden acts of heinous hatred – this is a film meant to leave you with your own thoughts on the story.

The film is available Jan 26th on VOD and DVD. Listen now to our interview with Jay Dockendorf.

Our topic this week: When is it time to admit our favorite films don’t hold up, and we are just blinded by nostalgia? SO many of our favorite films are having pinnacle anniversaries, but are they really as good as we remember them? Or are we all just wearing rose-colored glasses? We discuss this, as well as some of our favorites that both do and do not stand the test of time.

Stay after the normal episode as discuss The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and the series as a whole, now that it has wrapped up.
